Couture Salon & Spa is the first natural concept salon in Whittier to offer its clients naturally-based products. As the company states, it doesn’t just create ‘pretty hair’ – the Couture Salon & Spa team is trained to bring its clients an elevated standard of beauty and wellness solutions, while maintaining environmental sustainability.
The company’s principles are based on passion and integrity. Couture Salon Founder Eileen Rodriguez wanted to stand out and make a difference in the beauty industry with nature-friendly solutions. She experienced skin allergies and scalp flare-ups as reactions to harsh color chemicals and heavy cosmetic fillers. Her goal was to offer her clients safer alternatives that wouldn’t compromise their health and beauty.
Couture Salon and Spa’s philosophy is a holistic approach that strives to create beauty without compromise. The salon prides itself in actively listening to its clients’ concerns and taking the time to understand each one’s individual personal style. Based on that, they believe they can offer the best treatments.
Couture Salon & Spa is actively engaged in the community. The salon partners with other small companies in Whittier to support each other’s businesses and cross-promote clients. The salon is a member of Whittier Young Entrepreneurs, American Business Association and Team Referral Network.
Couture Salon & Spa is also a proud partner of My Refuge House. The company works closely with the nonprofit organization, to help restore the lives of young girls who have been victims of commercial sexual exploitation, human trafficking and sexual abuse. In 2015 and 2016, Couture Salon & Spa hosted women’s conferences and raised $7,000 for My Refuge House. In 2017 and 2018, the salon visited the Philippines to work with the young survivors. The salon offered them free beauty classes and free makeovers to help rebuild their confidence.
