About Dawn

Dawn DeKruyf is a hair stylist, make-up artist and photographer based in Cerritos and serving Southern California. With 34 years doing hair and makeup and 12 years running her own salon, Dawn believes cutting hair is easier than making dinner.

An expert with the scissors and the foil (they don't call her the Foil Queen for nothing), Dawn also prides herself on excellent communication.  She knows how to listen to you, the client, making you comfortable and at ease during your entire appointment. She is NOT scissor-happy: she really does believe in a TRIM. "We can always cut more, but we can't glue it back on."

Dawn specializes in on location weddings, special occasion hair and makeup and model start-up portfolios (hair, makeup and photos)
  • With an advanced education in color correction, make-up, Brazilian Blow-Out hair straightening system, Dawn is creative, fast, accurate and affordable - the Hollywood look without the Hollywood prices.
  • Dawn divides her time between Huntington Beach and Los Angeles areas, and she also makes house calls.

"I love what I do..and it shows!"

On a personal note:
I'm a silly woman with a serious side. I can see the humor in most everything. I'm 50 but feel about 25. I hang with younger people and do younger things. I have an optimistic attitude because God is in control, and nothing I do could ever change that.
