Bio: Hair Theatre Salon Owner, Lovola Nguyen sleeps, eats, and breathes hair. Many would say she was born to be a hair stylist. As a child hair protégé, she never thought of pursuing anything else. Lovola is all about the hair in more ways than one- it is her life and salon motto. It’s even on the front door of the salon! Lovola has enjoyed a career in the hair industry for more than 43 years and is just as excited to be working now as she was in the beginning. She feels blessed to have been mentored for 15 of those years by World Champion Sal Vitale in Saint Louis, while on her road to to becoming a platform Artist and Educator. She has also served as Artistic Director of the Energy Team for Helene Curtis National and International, as well has worked on stage for Wahl Clipper and Matrix. Her work also extends to print: Lovola was published in “American Salon” magazine for creating the Camouflage Perm Technique. Additionally, she created the Two-Hand Freestyle Clipper Cutting Technique for Wahl Clipper. Platform artists use this very technique on stage today to create exciting textured haircuts.
Currently, she is the Master Educator and Educational Director of the the Clawz Academy created by World Champion Valentino Losauro. Beyond all of her accreditations and titles, Lovola feels most blessed to collaborate with the exceptional stylists who have embraced the beauty industry culture and work at Hair Theatre Salon. Her fellow stylists and employees cannot say enough about the salon environment Lovola has established. Providing ongoing educational opportunities on all levels has increased her team’s ability to better serve their guests at the highest levels. She has carefully selected and helped train a group of stylists with a collective mission to continue to grow, which has garnered a loyal clientele. Hair Theatre guests always enjoy an atmosphere that caters to their needs. Lovola and the rest of the team work to assure that each guest knows that they are truly being heard, so that’s why she established a built-in consultation system for all services. Knowing that her salon caters to multiple generations, Lovola also takes pride having assembled a team that provides not only tried and true services but also the latest techniques and trends. Needless to say, Lovola puts her heart and soul in supporting her team and enabling her clients to feel confident, but her time and attention isn’t relegated to just her salon. She has a strong passion for bettering the planet, veganism, supporting causes that work to stop animal abuse, and attending meditation retreats. Ensuring that people are happier after spending time with Lovola, versus how they felt beforehand, is a driving force in all aspects of her life.
