About Me

Taron Fifer-Owner/Master Stylist

Taron was born in Durban, South Africa. She and her family moved to San Diego, California about 20 years ago. Taron spent most of her adolescent years in San Diego. This is where she graduated high school, completed an AA in Communications and where she began her career as a Cosmetologist. Now after almost a decade of success as a hair stylist she has relocated to Jacksonville, Florida and taken her career to another level. She is an exceptionally talented hair artist and her skills are constantly evolving with the latest trends. With being published in several editorials such as Sophisticates Hair Magazine, Todays Black Woman and Passion that alone confirms her caliber of expertise in the field cosmetology. We’re pretty sure that Taron started her life with a needle and thread. As far back as she can remember she's always been pretty crafty with her hands. From learning as a young girl how knit and sew, arts and crafts, drawing, teaching herself how to braid; it's been almost destined for her to do something with her hands, allowing her the freedom of creativity with no boundaries. Her aspiration is to one day open a school of her own to push out quality hair professionals but for now she’s focusing on building her brand and creating beauty inside and out.

"My first appointment with Taron was awesome! She's not only professional but has a beautiful personality & made me feel welcomed as a first-time client. I will definitely be returning & appreciate her honesty and feedback. What really stood out was my during my initial consultation I inquired about getting a Keratin Treatment and she gave her professional opinion as to why I shouldn't; then gave other options that would better compliment my hair. I truly appreciated her honesty b/c any other salon wouldn't have taken that approach and would have instead taken advantage of that opportunity. I'm thrilled that all I needed was a basic haircut, saving me a lot of money and the potential headache of what a Keratin treatment would have resulted in. Excellent work Taron! "

- Ro G. | 03.17.2016

"Taron is the best hair stylist I've ever had. I have long blond hair and it's been really hard to find someone who can do a really good job coloring it. Most of the time, the color didn't look the way I wanted. My roots turned out to be yellow and looked different from the rest of the hair. But when Taron does it, it looks perfect! The color is blended in so well that you can't see any difference. And the hair cut always looks good. Taron doesn't rush, she takes her time to listen to you in order to give you a high quality service. She notices if something is wrong with your hair and gives you advice on how to fix the problem. Taron has been my stylist for a year and I highly recommend her if you want to look terrific!"

- Marina Z. | 01.21.2016

"Gr8 personality definitely a peoples person, Taron did an excellent job on my hair, my hair looked gorgeous my daughter n friends loved it, and commented that they could tell I didn't get my hair done here in my home town, my hair looked like I just got a perm and i'm over due 4 one, i'm very happy with my service I received, "

- Vicky C. | 01.13.2016

"When I moved to Jacksonville I was very nervous about being able to find someone I trust to do my hair. I booked an appointment with Taron for a sewin and the results were better than I could've ever imagined. There was no bulk around the edges. I could pull my hair back into a high or low pony tail without giving away that it was a sewin. And, the cut and color were perfect. I will NEVER go to anyone else for my hair needs. She's very gifted at her craft. "

- Rishaunda McKinney D. | 12.27.2015

Skilled, versatile and strong communication are just a few of her work techniques. Initially, I came to her with major hair damage to include, weak, thin, extra dry, & brittle hair loss. Less than 6 months my hair is now stronger, fuller, softer & looks much healthier in appearance. Quite often, I get compliments from people who ask me who does my hair. She is a professional that focuses on me the customer and my requests. From shampooing, treating & styling, I have never walked away disappointed.
