“A passion for beauty and customer satisfaction”

See Our Services


My name is Joanna Rivera and for the last 15 years I’ve dedicated my life to my business and the expansion of knowledge within the beauty industry. I have a deep passion for connection, and I do it with service. I have always been an outside type of thinker, and because of this I live a very blessed life. I have a deep love for art of all types, but the one I love the most is all things beauty. I've combined my love for people and my love for hair, and I call it the “N.Y.L.A. Hair Studio”. I specialize in organizing a person's beauty that has always been there, in a new way so they can see themselves from a whole new perspective. Sometimes it takes a new understanding of self to realize your full potential and here at my studio our stylists are trained to not only give you the best experience your hair has ever had, but to be there as a safe place for you to vent and diffuse your stress. We see you as less of a client and more of our family and it is our mission to transform you from the inside out. If we all work together, we can change the entire world, one smile at a time.

I have been going to NYLA for years. I love it. They are professional, personable and always willing to work with me. I like to try different styles on a whim, and they are flexible. I enjoy watching all the creations and beautiful styles made on happy clients while I am there! You become part of the family at NYLA...

Susan Sheets

My friend introduced me to this hair salon because I was having trouble getting the color combination I wanted. I don't live close by any means, I live an hour and ten minutes away from the salon. However, after my first experience and outcome, I can tell you that I do not mind the drive to go there at all. You will get excellent results! The staff that they employ are friendly, quirky and fun to talk to. The hairstylists are all talented from what I was able to see. And finally, the owners are very welcoming and treat you as they have known you forever. The interior decor has a neat concept, it is not your typical boring salon. This is certainly a place you want to explore and you will have a wonderful experience!
