Owner / Stylist

Kim has been a hair stylist for over 13 years in the bay area. She started her journey training in San Francisco and Berkeley, moved to the outer eastbay area to start a family and now back in Berkeley to open Modena.  

Her idea of having her own salon was to provide a home for stylists and clients to come together for a great service, with great products, feel relaxed, look and feel their best.



"I grew up in a small town but grew out of it quickly when I found I wanted more to life. The Bay Area was where I found a 'home.' Being with and interacting with people over time became something that I really enjoyed. Giving them confidence and happiness by what they had to work with is a strong reason for me wanting to get into the hair/people business." 

"Everyone you meet has something to teach you."

Robert specializes in men's grooming.


Senior Color Specialist

Keila has been specializing in hair color for almost 8 years with training in San Francisco and Walnut Creek. She loves sharing her knowledge of hair with her fellow stylist and clients, evolving with changing trends.  



"I've always worked in a salon environment and been drawn to hair. I love talking to and being around people so being a stylist combines both those worlds. Helping people to reflect their individual personalities in their hair is what I love about my job. Its a personalized service with each client."

Stephanie is sweet and has a great sense of humor. She keeps herself educated in the world of hair and loves sharing that knowledge with her clients. 

Specialized services include Hothead extensions and Keratin Smoothing Treatments



Independent Stylist

"Being a hairstylist, I have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life, to make them look good, and feel good about their hair. Hair is an accessory that needs to be worn to accentuate your personality, style and fulfill your desire."

"Through my hair dressing career, I have always looked forward to continuing education. It doesn't matter if it is a cutting, coloring, styling class...there are always things to learn, to improve on. I want to be better today than yesterday, tomorrow than today!"

Thuan is at Modena on Wednesdays, Fridays, every other Saturday and every other Sunday!
