Meet your merchant: Nevada Union classmates team up to run successful Penn Valley salon

When Samantha Johnson and Sienna Crawford first became friends their freshman year at Nevada Union High School, they probably wouldn’t have guessed they would one day own a salon together. But as the years passed, it became clear they shared a common passion, as Samantha did her senior project at a salon and both went on to work in the beauty industry.

But in 2013 an opportunity presented itself that the two couldn’t pass up. An established salon, Reflections Salon & Spa near Lake Wildwood, came up for sale. Both Sienna and Samantha had worked at the salon on and off over the years and loved it. They took a leap of faith and bought it together.

Since then, the duo has created a dynamic team of 11, which includes four hairstylists, four nail technicians, two massage therapists and one esthetician. Conveniently located next to the Holiday Market on Pleasant Valley Road, clients say they appreciate the fact that the salon offers a spectrum of health and beauty services all in one location.
