Owner + master stylist
The journey of BriAnna Castro all started in 3rd grade, when she told her mom she would do her own hair from now on. Then to doing her friends hair and make up for proms, to enrolling in beauty school since her sophomore year in high school, she couldn’t wait until she graduated knowing what she wanted to be. She graduated early from beauty school at The Salon Professional Academy – the only endorsed school by Redken – and then she was off to the working field! She started at Di Pietro Todd Training as a Color Specialist in San Francisco/ Palo Alto, but then came to realization that she wanted to do more than color. She wanted to finish a client from A-Z – color, cut, extensions and even make up! You name she wanted to create the whole look herself.
She then came back to her hometown in Castro Valley, CA and started building her clientele at Rae Talbot Salon. After 2 years of building her clientele and building life long friendships, she was off to her main goal of owning her own salon! March 28th 2017 was the day she came across her beautiful little gem of a salon in Pleasanton,CA, and 3 days later the deal closed! She started working the salon on April 1st 2017.
As BriAnna has always been a go getter, she strives for better as the salon is going through a facelift and encourages anyone to stop by and say hello! Every step she has taken has been a very well thought out plan, and has made her who she is today. BriAnna is a very honest, positive and down to earth person. She always is looking at the best ways to achieve the best looks no matter what obstacle is infront of her. Her famous saying is “healthy hair is pretty hair” and you have to trust the process.
Now lets talk hair!
BriAnna specializes in color and extensions. Her main specialty that she is known for is balayage – her all time favorite look! Her favorite thing about doing hair is making people feel so beautiful when they leave – it really lights up her day!

Stylist & brow king
You name it and Anthony is your guy! Anthony worked and had advanced training at Benefit Beauty Bar for one year learning everything you could possibly know about waxing and make up! We like to call him the “Brow King”. He is very detailed and thorough when creating your brows that he even brow maps you before starting! This Brow Kings passion for the beauty industry is driven by the experiences of this offbeat individual. Once feeling like the black sheep (or in this case a colorful one) he wanted to help make women and men feel better about themselves and to bring out their inner diva! So April 2017, he started at Salon Nine Two Five where he began to work part time building his clientele and assisting the owner. During his ventures he has taken many classes and even was sent to the 901 Academy! Anthony loves to create fun punky colors and beautiful balayages.
