Riawna Capri

As a super down-to-earth, yet honest person, Riawna’s special touch has clients coming from around the world to have her help create their “best you.” Riawna is always joking around and laughing too loud, but she takes her craft very seriously. After graduating from Oxnard High School, her parents forced her to go to college, which lasted for two years, until she made it to Marinello’s School of Beauty, in Henderson, Nevada, circa 2002. After graduating at the top of her class, she went to work at “the best salon in LA,” which at that time, in her eyes, was Fred Segal Beauty. From there, she opened Nine Zero One with co-founder, Nikki Lee, and launched IN COMMON.

Nikki Lee

Hair stylist, salon owner, entrepreneur and mom, Nikki is a jill-of-all-trades. Whether she’s layering in some extensions, crafting the perfect blonde locks or touching up a deep brunette shade, she always makes her clients feel and look their best. Nikki went to beauty school in her hometown of Reno, Nevada. After she graduated, she went to Genesis Salon. When she moved to LA, she assisted at Fred Segal Beauty in Santa Monica, California. After opening Nine Zero One Salon with co-founder, Riawna Capri, they launched IN COMMON.
