Our highly trained creative team provides a warm welcome and an inviting environment at Emerald Iguana Salon. We are inspired by Aveda and nature, and our most important asset — YOU.


We are dedicated to continuing our education and throughout the year we attend Aveda classes that cover everything from cuts to color, make-up, product knowlege to better business practices. We do this so that we may bring you the best service possible and stay on top of the latest trends.


We are a Certified Monterey Bay Green Business, which means that we employ Pollution Prevention practices, conserve energy, water and other resources, as well as minimize waste—all in the effort to protect our environment.


As an Exclusive Aveda salon, we believe in being environmentally conscious, in practicing sustainability, and in giving back to society—both personally and professionally. Emerald Iguana Salon gives back to our local community and its various organizations by participating in fundraising activities throughout the year.

April: Earth Month, Earth Day on April 22nd: We participate in the Beach Cleanup and raise money for Earth Month and Aveda Environmental partners, Clean Water Fund, Global Green Grants, Save Lake Tahoe, Save Our Shores, and Surfrider Foundation. We are a “Shero Hero” salon in recognition of our fundraising efforts.

September/October: Women Care: Julie’s salon has been giving back since 1994. We’ve helped raise funds for this local non-profit organization which provides support for women undergoing the battle against a variety of cancers. We give money and donate for giveaways at their annual bowling event.

Aveda Congress: In the fall, we participate in Aveda’s mission to connect beauty, environment, and well being. We personally attend this national conference where we take advanced, leading edge classes. We learn up-to-the-minute techniques presented by Aveda’s Global Education Team.

In addition, Emerald Iguana donates gifts and services to various schools and causes in our community throughout the year. We believe that as you come forward to share your gifts, you inspire others to do the same.
