Salon Del Mar Stylists
ANGELA DEL MAR
I love our craft, and this year I am celebrating 26 years of hairdressing! I’m inspired by beauty of all kinds: everything from hat designs to botanical curiosities and oceanography. My Training has stretched from Florida to Seattle, and Los Angeles to New York.
After traveling to the four corners of the United States and training with amazing stylists, I decided it was my turn to assemble some remarkable talent in our beautiful Santa Fe.
My stylists and I are committed to continuous learning and I lead regular in-house staff trainings as well as supervising our assisting program. Together, we cultivate a wide range of techniques, from the art of timeless and classic looks to the most current creations in color and style.
We are dedicated to serving you in feeling and looking your best. What you will find here are stylists that care about your beauty and expression. We will listen and we will never stop learning.

Angela is a Davines North American Artistic Team Member
I'm a local! I was born and raised in Santa Fe and spent seven years in Los Angeles honing my skills as a cutting specialist.
I attend classes regularly to stay up to date on the latest styles, techniques and styling products. These skills, in conjunction with my knowledge of different hair types, help me to create your best look. I am inspired by strong shapes, precision, and change, but also love softness and fluidity.
Along with Angela Del Mar, I am also an educator in our assisting program. Participating in education keeps me inspired and fresh.
It allows me to challenge myself and expand my concepts of what is possible with hair and with everyday life.
I am extremely passionate about our craft, and teaching it humbles me and opens me to see things from fresh perspectives. I love to encourage and challenge our assistants and it is an honor to watch them succeed.

Vanessa is a Davines Educator.
I love my career! I started cutting hair when I was 12, earned my Barber license at 17, and later became a Cosmetologist. From 1981 -1985 I was the personal stylist for St Louis Mayor Vincent Schoemel. During my career I have freelanced theater work for the Muny Opera, Talent Plus Model Agency, and The Girls of Kansas City Calender.
In 1994 I became a color specialist/educator for Framise USA. While in Kansas City I owned and operated a unique salon and art space called One Block West Salon where we hosted exhibits of local artists. During my second year in Santa Fe I was honored to be selected by The New Mexican for their special make-over edition.
I love art and I consider myself an artist. Art and geometry are an integral part of what I do every day. Even after 30 years I am still excited about the creative nature of my industry. I am very pleased to be using Davines superior color and products and to be joining the very talented and inspiring team at Salon Del Mar.

I grew up here in Santa Fe and began my career as a hairstylist in 2008. While attending the AVEDA Institute of Portland, I found my true love for the beauty industry. I enjoy creating a place where my clients can step away from their busy day and relax in my chair, knowing that they will be taken care of and leave feeling refreshed. My focus on my clients' lifestyles, passions, and daily routines allows me to create well-executed cuts that grow out gracefully, one of my greatest strengths. This knowledge and skill also serves in my ability to bring together the color, texture and dimension that will best compliment all the elements in a complete look.
I am honored to be a part of the wonderful team at Salon Del Mar and to participate in the expression of beauty in this community.
Hair is and always will be a part of human expression in all walks of life.
Having been in the industry for 10 years, I take inspiration from nature and decades past. Styling hair has always been interesting and I've developed a love for the art of cut and coloring. I enjoy putting a modern spin on the classics while taking classes on new trends. Everything is constantly changing or evolving however beauty is always the focus.
*Heidi is a guest stylist.
Trained at Vidal Sassoon in Los Angeles, I aspire to create haircuts that are truly wearable, while strong in structure. I envision hair as a canvas that should complement the bone structure of the client and embrace the natural texture of the hair. I enjoy the high attention to detail that barbering requires, from the biological study of hair to the shape of the final profile. Striking design and unexpected beauty in many forms inspire me, from lighting and sets, to architecture, painting, and nature’s geometry.
I have always had a passion for hair! It was clear to me the very first time I worked behind the chair that this is what I was born to do. My inspiration is rooted deeply in Santa Fe's rich culture. I was born and raised in the City Different and I found myself expressing my creativity through various avenues that ultimately unified in beauty and hair. I was fortunate enough to train under master stylists Angela Del Mar and Vanessa Perez in a comprehensive apprenticeship program.
I am committed to continuing my education and advancing my skills to stay up to date with current cut, color and styling trends. My objective as a stylist is to create a solid foundation which I can personalize for the client, allowing my artistic abilities to shine through. I pay particular attention to detail, and look forward to helping you achieve the look you desire.
From a young age I knew hair was my calling, as all my bald Barbies can attest. I was born and raised in New Mexico, attended Vogue in Santa Fe, but shortly after moved to Denver where I really grew as a stylist. I worked in a few great places with wonderful artists. It was at an Aveda Salon where the culture took root in me and I was able to express myself through hair. I then became an owner/operator of my own Salon. Throughout my 20 years doing hair, I am constantly challenged, every day is a new day in hair. It is an ever changing art. I love all aspects of hair, cutting, coloring, and styling, and every age as well. I am grateful for the opportunity our clients give us to share in that first haircut, a fresh new color, a bold new haircut, the style for a special occasion, and the maintenance on the color and cut that allows you to be you.
At this time in my life I am inspired by simplicity, and enjoying the beauty in all moments. My eyes are drawn to the designs of clean lines or shredded edges, muted colors or bold splashes. I am inspired by someone being comfortable in their skin.
I am so happy to be back in New Mexico and to have found Salon Del Mar, a salon that encourages and nurtures continuous education and a culture where everybody is happy to serve the customer.
Love is in the hair!
My passion for hair started when I was a little girl. My mother was a hairstylist and I was drawn to hair immediately. Every time those scissors and comb came out I knew something amazing was about to take place. I always have a wonderful feeling when I can give someone the confidence to know their own beauty by working with their hair.
I have seven years of experience as a stylist and I'm honored to say that I will be further educated under salon owner Angela Del Mar in order to provide excellent service to my clientele. I place a high value on listening to clients, understanding their needs and respecting their hair....and i strive for unlimited creativity!
I'm very excited and honored to have the opportunity to be a stylist at Salon Del Mar and to join a talented salon family creating beautiful art through hair.
I love being part of this creative industry based on self expression. I approach each day with passion, creativity, and excitement. I arrived in Santa Fe five years ago and started my career in hair after training at the Redken Academy in Ohio. I began at Salon Del Mar as an artist's apprentice to Angela Del Mar who inspired me to approach hair from an artistic place of art and science. For me, cutting is a form of sculpting and creating shapes. I draw inspiration from the world around me such as lines and silhouettes found in architecture and nature. Coloring hair is an opportunity to play with a beautiful pallet. I love using my clients' best features such as eyes, skin tone, and lips and then matching complementary colors of the pallet to make those features pop and speak to the world.
I adore texture and fluidity! This inspiration is drawn from texture and colors found in textiles, fabrics, fashion, and nature. Understanding the texture of each client's hair helps me to deliver a desired style that is ready to wear and effortless to achieve. I am dedicated and passionate about continuing my education and advancing my skills to deliver looks that are current in style.
I believe that beauty is the essence within a person that radiates outward for the world to see. It thrills me to help my clients express themselves to the world and to feel empowered within themselves. I simply love creating beauty and desire to leave it wherever I go.
I began my career in the hair and beauty industry 9 plus years ago at the VICI Aveda Institute in my native city of Milwaukee, WI. Since my initial training at the institute I have consistently sought fresh, new perspectives from professional continuing education. I have participated in courses across the U.S. from New York to Seattle, (and many wonderful places in between). I strive to stay current and sharp in our ever-changing industry of hair and fashion.
The element of transformation is my biggest inspiration. I love to be able to work creatively and tangibly with elements of design, structure, color, and the human experience to create a wearable work of art that allows my guests to feel refreshed, revived, and renewed. Whether the change is a full color overhaul or a simple trim, my joy and inspiration is found in the way your hair makes you feel and the life you live in it.
I have expressed myself in the creative arts since I was child, leaving no media unexplored. I feel my creative talents and personable skills of connecting are truly realized in the media of hair. I love my craft and I am so grateful to be able to share it in Santa Fe at Salon Del Mar.
