Thank you for visiting True Essence Multi-Ethnic Salon, also known as T.E.M.E. Salon and T.E.M.E. Beauty. We offer services to a broader range of diversity and hair textures. We are skilled in servicing everyone. Please note we operate exclusively by MEMBERSHIP appointments. New Clients are allowed two visits to decide if our salon is a good fit for continuing with a membership to our salon.
We are a premium salon offering professional services to all guests. We don't overbook, and we offer privacy for all your needs. Yes, we are social media savvy; however, we respect your privacy and ours; therefore, we do not post any photos of your visits services. If our salon is closed, it merely means working an event, attending education, or only taking the day off.
All of our guests are V.I.P.'s (Very Important Person's ) and are treated as such. We offer industry professional products and over 18 years of beauty knowledge. We are now located in the beautiful El Cerrito Plaza, in El Cerrito, CA., inside Sola Studios unit #25. We proudly served on Lakeshore Ave for six years, Piedmont Ave for nine years, College Ave for two years, and are now featured in SOLA SALON studios.
If you are searching for a product that you cannot locate, please send a request, and we will try to add the product to the inventory. To avoid a 50% or 100% cancellation fee, please cancel/reschedule with a minimum of 48 hours. Please note we are a Private Studio; please no guest or children unless being serviced. Mask is required at all times. Once you have arrived at your appointment time, please text or call your stylist: the stylist will meet you at the door when the salon is empty.
Please wait in your vehicle to avoid congregation at the entrance door just until your stylist is ready for you. Appointments may run over a few minutes. Please follow the guidelines and remain away from the entrance until your stylist notifies you it's safe to come in.
We love our customers, so feel free to contact us at any time.
We operate by appointment only. ALL APPOINTMENTS ARE SCHEDULED WITH A CONFIRMATION EMAIL AND OR TEXT.
