b vivacious
Young and full of life, Destinee Padilla thinks she was destined to be in the hair business.

“I think being in an ‘environment of hair’ influenced me so much,” said this Ventura county native, who grew up around a first cousin who was constantly experimenting with her and her relatives' tresses.

Armed with that influence and a desire to make it on her own, Destinee successfully completed Freddie B’s highly competitive apprenticeship program which included advanced education at american crew and vidal sasson academy. On top of that, as the salon's concierge, she is deeply involved in customer service and the day-to-day operations of the salon.

Destinee is eager to introduce her “new age” and edgy style and draw younger clients into the salon.

B Imaginative
Growing up creative, Shonti Conner literally "went back to her artistic roots." After a real estate stint, she switched careers and interned with a famous celebrity stylist who mentored her on the intricacies of coloring and cutting.

Before finding freddie b, Shonti put her shears to work at another salon. As a colorist, she puts her imagination to work with multihued locks. She also thrives and excels at the challenge of color correction.

Working with models side-by-side at hair shows brings out her fun and funky side. With precision haircuts, Shonti's meticulous attention to details is at the forefront. "I am all about making sure someone has the right style to go with his or her look. It's all in the details," she says.

Christina embraces all aspects of fashion and creativity. She says, "I just want to create color and style, and all things beautiful, to take care of the personal needs of my clients.'

Growing up in England, Christina vividly recalls getting a kick out of styling her doll's hair, but didn't think she could make a career out of it. Fortunately, fate intervened and a family move to the US as a teenager cinched the deal.

"I've always loved glamor and retro," said Holly, describing her funky and feminine forte.

Holly has always been fascinated with the chic look of the roaring 40s and 50s. Think red lips, cat eyes, long eyelashes, curls and victory rolls reminiscent of those decades.

Holly brings this boldness and adventuresome streak with her to Freddie B Salon, as she transforms clients including brides with her retro brand of styling, vibrant color and sexy make-up. She also goes for the natural beachy look - a "must" in this coastal town.

She said, "Clients are like family to me - I listen and show I care about them a lot. I am artistic and creative but I also want my clients to feel good about themselves."

b positive
"I always see the good in people," says Jordyn, the perennial optimist. From clients she's meeting for the first time to regulars she's bonded with over the years, Jordyn digs deep to find out what makes every person tick.

Growing up with three sisters, it was easy to find a common interest - hair. She remembers those days fondly, "We would go to the store together to buy hair dye and then head home and do each other's hair."

As her career bloomed, Jordyn found herself gravitating towards the bygone but uber fashionable eras of the 50s and 60s for hair inspiration and would embark on time travel if she could. Would you join her?

b true
“From the age of six, I remember following my parents around as they gave massages,” says Fernando, whose parents were also practicing massage therapists back in their native Mexico.

The early exposure to the craft paved the way for Fernando’s career choice. From the time he came to the U.S., he dedicated himself to finishing masssage school and getting his license. 

It could be his “people personality” and his innate desire to help too. “I just knew in my heart I wanted to do it,” he states. “And clients have said they could feed off of my  positive energy.”

Outside massage therapy, Fernando finds his energy in running. He explains, “Running for me is spiritual, like meditation.”
