I'm Angela Rose Hakala! I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and now reside in Sonoma County, California.
As a a mother I realize how important it is to make self care a priority and take some time for yourself to relax and be pampered. I work in the heart of Novato in the beautiful L Paradis Salon. In my chair you will always feel welcome and heard.
I've been a stylist for over 10 years and have never been more in love with my clients and career than ever before. I specialize in beautiful hair color and haircutting: precision and lived in cuts! I'm proud to say that I make education a priority and take classes at least a couple times a year to improve my knowledge and skills.
I value clear communication and believe that a thorough consultation is always key to a great service. I will always encourage and guide my guests to a service that matches the level of maintenance to their lifestyle. Education for me to continue learning and growing my skills and techniques is just as important as educating my guests with ways to style and care for their hair at home as if they just left the salon.
Becoming a solo single mother to a little girl has been my biggest motivator to do what I do! Learning that parenting is one of the most important and challenging gifts in the world and a child's need for security, stability and awareness of their love and their value is a necessity in order to thrive.
You, my darling, deserve to spend time on you to take care of yourself even during your darkest days. Without the darkness we would not know the effects of light. And the world, my dear, needs your light. I'm so glad you are here.

I can't wait to meet you!
Raising a child on my own made it clear that I needed to do all that I could to give my daughter a life full of wonder, creativity, and an abundance of opportunities. Being an independent hairstylist provides me the opportunity to be present in her life with a flexible schedule. It's been an opportunity to be an example of what is possible with determination, preserverence, and hard work. Anything that she puts her mind to I want her to believe is possible also.
Being a working out of the home mother has shown me the importance of self care. Without caring for yourself first, it's difficult to care for anyone else. This is how my passion to create low mantinance beautiful hairstyles for all that empowers, nurtures, and is essential for self care developed.
In my free time you will find me planning and cooking healthy meals. I am an advocate in creating an environment for everyone --- full of self love, compassion, and acceptance.
