Owner & Stylist
After graduating from The Paul Mitchell School here in Costa Mesa, Celena took her desire to be a great stylist very seriously. Once completing an assistant program at an upscale salon in Corona Del Mar, she steadily began gaining her own clientele.
She is passionate about everything she does in her life, especially doing hair. Making people feel beautiful and confident is what she does best. Celena is a true perfectionist and is very detailed. For all of these reasons, she was able to build her business quickly and it was not long before an opportunity presented itself.
A small boutique salon came up for sale on the edge of Newport Beach’s Cannery Village. She realized it was time to get serious and open her own salon. Finally, her dream of owning a salon came true…XO Salon opened its doors in Dec 2006 and has been home ever since.
Creating a boutique style concept, XO Salon was a labor of love that has stood the test of time. Designed to cater to the client’s every need for hair and skin care, while providing a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Not only the client’s love it, all the stylists have a place to work and feel like home. Our amazing front desk staff compliments XO Salon’s warm atmosphere. Enjoy a warm cup of coffee or a nice glass of wine and you will sink into your beauty experience. Forget your worldly duties and make XO your Salon of choice.
Celena and all of the girls of XO Salon hope to welcome you soon!
