Taylor VanAtta

Salon K8 Stylist

Hi I’m Taylor! I am a Marine brat that has lived all over the U.S. but I have been an Orange County resident for over 10 years. I love and have grown accustom to meeting new people and consider myself a pretty outgoing person! When I was young, one of my favorite memories was going to the hair salon with my mom. From then on, I was hooked and knew I wanted be a hairstylist. My early years in the industry were spent learning from two different master stylists, where I learned my basic training, skills and customer service. I am Brazilian Blowout certified and currently specializing in blonding and balayage. I have extended training and continue to update my guests on the latest techniques, treatments and trends. I truly love what I do and the relationships I have established and look forward to making many more in future!

Jenn Zabala

Salon K8 Stylist

Hi I'm Jenn!! I live in Rancho Santa Margarita where my husband and I are raising our four crazy kids! Three of them being girls, that's a lot of hair!! In choosing this profession I love that being a hair and beauty professional allows me to be creative, colorful and social, while still accommodating my family's busy schedule. Though I truly love being a stay at home mom, the time has come for me to let my creative and professional side thrive again. So I jumped right into Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy allowing me to be in the profession I love and have always wanted. I love providing my guests with a natural, healthy, beautiful, easy to replicate look that compliments their daily life! Book a consultation with me and let me help you "Own Your Beauty"!
