Seven-A Signature Salon has been in business in Escondido for 12 years. When Christensen was asked what her salon’s motto would be, she responded, “  ‘Every client is our guest.’ We want to treat our clients like they are staying at a hotel. We are involved in our client’s lives and want to hear about the good things, celebrations, struggles and really be there for our clients.”

I asked Christensen how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the salon? “Our community is amazing,” she said. “We were able to get one of the City of Escondido grants that they were giving out. That helped us pay for a month’s worth of rent. The community and our staff have really come together. We opened in 2008 when the economy crashed, and this is been a much harder experience.”

Christensen really wants to express that her salon and stylists go above and beyond regarding safety procedures on a regular basis. Whether it is during the pandemic or during more normal times, she wants her clients to feel safe and protected. She said, “Above everything, we are fighters and we will get past this. The year 2021 will look different for salons, but I am blessed to work with such great people. We will adapt to these changes and move forward.”
