So beyond thrilled with Sally and the time and attention she gave my daughter. She was attentive, honest, knowledgeable, and very sociable. The salon is absolutely adorable and quaint. My daughter did not want “basic,” and Sally delivered something truly worthy of “the A List.” We will definitely return not only because of the smokin’ hot job she did at an incredibly reasonable price but because Sally is now a friend.

I was in town only for a few days and in desperate need of a haircut.  Took a chance on the Yelp reviews and called for an appointment.  Sally graciously fit me in that same day.  It turned out to be my lucky day.  Sally was awesome.  She and Darlene were so welcoming and friendly. I felt so comfortable there. I never know what I want so I put my hair in Sally’s capable hands.  She performed a miracle with my thin, baby fine hair.  I love my haircut and have gotten so many compliments. Sally is a sweetheart. She didn’t just cut my hair and rush me out.  She went above and beyond showing me how to style my hair and get the volume that my hair lacks. I will definitely go back when I am in town again.  I wish I had found her years ago when I lived in Santa Clarita.

Sally is my go-to for all my makeup and hair/up-do needs! Not only is she arguably the sweetest woman alive, but her passion for her work oozes into everything she does. She is a great conversationalist and she has a way of making your skin look absolutely gorgeous and so vibrant (and I have very temperamental skin – so I applaud her extra). She’s passionate about highlighting your unique beauty in a very natural way, which has you leaving her chair still looking like yourself, but, feeling absolutely gorgeous in your own skin. I wish she could do my makeup every day!

“I can not say enough great things about Sally Van Swearingen and Brigitte from The A List! Seriously I wanted to give them 20 stars… As a bride, I had a dream of looking and feeling confident and amazing on my wedding day. I spent a long time trying to figure out who I wanted to do my (as well as all 8 of my bridesmaids) hair and makeup. After my long search, I came across these wonderful ladies who truly took the time to listen to EXACTLY what I had envisioned! ”

“Friendly, professional, wonderful! Sally and Brigitte did both my bridal hair and makeup. during my planning, my original MUA had to cancel on me due to COVID -but thanks to Sally and her willingness to step in last minute, she saved the day! A lovely team to hire for your big day. And delivered beautiful results for myself and for my bridesmaids!”

While we all have an inner beauty that radiates, I can attest to how Sally Van Swearingen brings it out more enhanced and vibrant.  Give her time to work on YOU in her beauty power chair and you will leave feeling like the princess that you are. She truly gives you permission and helps you to unleash your unique beauty through her natural makeup products and natural hair styling uplift and makeovers. Thank you Sally for helping me access, claim, and walk in my beauty power!

“As soon as I walked into this salon, I was greeted by the friendly staff members. They offered me water and coffee, which is something they do every time I visit. Sally, the lady who did my hair was exceptionally friendly and walked me through every part of the procedure. She seemed very confident in what she does, and the end result was stunning. Definitely recommending!”

“The A-List’s Sally Van Swearingen is, by far, the best make-up artist around (THE Best, according to SCV Elite Magazine). The bonus is, she does hair too! Yay me for finding her!!”

— Leesa B., Santa Clarita, CA / ★★★★★   2/12/2018

“Can’t say enough about Sally Van Swearingen. She is truly an artist in her field. She is extremely accommodating and takes the time to listen to your needs. Sally has years of experience and is knowledgeable of the latest trends. She will spend the time to make sure you are pleased and really educate you on what technique she is using. She uses her own make-up line and after you give it a try you’ll never want to use another line of make-up!”

“I absolutely love everyone here! I last minute needed my hair and makeup done for my dad’s 60th surprise birthday party and they were able to get me in and done before the party! They are amazing! They are my new go-to salon (very affordable pricing too! & love the atmosphere!)”

“Sally Van Swearingen is truly amazing! My stylist is on maternity leave and I had let my hair go. It was horrible. I had never used Sally but heard she was really good so I called her. She fit me in that day. Her salon is lovely, her attention to detail is spot on, and I left feeling so much better. Thank you Sally you saved the day!”
