leo + luna is founded on friendship.
summer (owner) and tessa (assistant to the owner) have been best friends for over ten years after initially bonding over love of taco bell and possession of barely road safe cars. they became each other's closest ally and biggest fan. both kept each other brave, dreaming, and unwilling to give up. neither gave up on their dreams because the other was always there to help dream big and encourage. leo + luna is a reflection of friendship.
our name meaning stems from that friendship. summer is symbolized by 'leo' (which, judge us if you must, but astrology is cool), and leo is a sun sign. tessa is symbolized by luna, which means moon, and she has a tiny tattoo of a moon on her forearm. summer + tessa sounded a bit self absorbed, so we went with leo + luna.
another aspect of our name is the representation of the sun + moon. one of the biggest parts of leo + luna is about friendship and encouragement, putting each other first and building one another up. we loved the example the sun + moon set for us. They both shine at their time and don't compete for each others light. we love the concept of focusing on others and helping everyone shine without jealousy.
our final name inspiration also comes from the sun + moon. because we all know there are sunny days and there are dark days, and both need light. our team believes in being that light for each other and our client family. we are more than hair or beauty, we are here for you. when your days feel close to the sun, we want to celebrate with you. when your darkness feels too much, we want to be the light that brightens your night.
because of friendship, leo + luna was born. we want to always reflect that back to you, our guest. we want you to relax, grab a glass of champagne from our bubbly bar, and enjoy being apart of our client family while our artistry makes you believe that you're as pretty as everyone always says you are.
