SERINA GAGNON

Sr. Stylist 

Hi, my name is Serina and I was born and raised in the Bay Area. From an early age I have always had a love for color and creativity and became a licensed cosmetologist in 2005. I love being in this industry because I have met so many people, learned a lot about life, and have been able to connect with others in a unique way that not many people get to experience. Every client that has sat in my chair has left a lasting impression and it keeps me passionate in what I do. I am so excited to join Parlour and feel honored to be a part of this talented team!

CARLY LOTTS

Sr. Stylist 

Hi, I'm Carly Lotts, a Santa Cruz native, enjoying life with my husband and 1 year old son. Since becoming licensed in 2009, I have honed my skills through continued education with Vidal Sassoon, Kevin Murphy, Enjoy, Salt Society and more! I have worked as an independent hairstylist throughout my career, so when the opportunity to join a team of creative and passionate hairdressers came up, I jumped at it! As part of this group of excellent hairstylists, I look forward to offering favorite services like balayage, haircutting, highlighting and color. Wedding and formal event hairstyling are also big passions of mine as well. I love learning new skills and perfecting my craft as a hairstlyist and I believe Parlour at the Point is the perfect place to do that!
