Apricot Lounge Salon & Nevaeh Boutique are both owned and operated by Vanessa Jasper and Kimberly Allison. We credit our education and creative mindset to Toni & Guy Hairdressing which is where we met over 10 years ago. Since then we have worked together as a team each specializing in what we do best. Kim excels at hair cutting while Vanessa's expertise is creating the perfect hair color. Our skills also include a host of other services! Experience our duo of creativity and get the look that is right for you!
We both share an affinity for fashion. The idea of sharing that love with our clientele ignited the opening of Nevaeh Boutique. Hair is synonymous with fashion which made expanding the business a natural progression.
The name Nevaeh, (Heaven backwards), was chosen in honor of Vanessa and her mother, Tina Padilla. Due to the life threatening nature of a rare liver condition, Vanessa found herself in desperate need of a liver transplant. Her mother graciously donated a portion of her liver giving Vanessa life for the second time! They named her new organ, Nevaeh. The signifigance of this life changing experience made finding a name for our new boutique not only meaningful but effortless.
Our mission is to bring you the latest trends in both hair and fashion by providing you with a variety of hair and apparel options that will add to your personal style. Book a hair service and shop with us today!
