Crop is run by extremely talented, carefully selected professionals. Say hello to our crew:

Deborah Kantner

 Deborah always wanted to go to Art School, but her mentor suggested she study the Art of Hair and trained at Aveda Institute in Minneapolis. Moving to Los Angeles in 1999, she began her career doing hair in the editorial world for music and commercials.

 After 7 years in the business she wanted to get back into the salon, where she started. She missed being behind the chair, one on one with her clients in a more personalized setting.

CROP started out as a single chair and now hosts 3 other (super-talented!) stylists.

"Having my own space allows me the freedom to carry natural & organic products, which is very important to me."
