Hair by Donna in Riverside

I've been a hairdresser for over 25 years. I specialize in color but will tackle just about anything. Come in for a consultation or make an appointment.

More color correction! I photographed the process as well as the before & after. It's not pretty & it's scary to see your hair pumpkin orange unless that's what you're going for. The process is difficult & ugly, so I warn my clients what to expect so they don't freak out lol. I'm very happy with the end result & most importantly, so is she! #colorcorrection #theuglyprocess #beforeandafter #hair #behindthechair #hairbydonnainriverside

COLOR CORRECTION DAY! It is hard to tell in these before pictures of the orange spots all over her head from a box color home job. The good thing is her hair wasn't damaged. So I camouflaged it with a heavy blonde weave. She now will bring in the new year looking like Barbie! ๐Ÿ˜ Sometimes these things sound like a good idea until you do them & then disaster strikes. #isavedtheday #colorcorrection #fixit #behindthechair #hairbydonnainriverside

So this happened tonight. It truly is RAD! Yes, I'm bringing "rad" back because that's the only way to describe it! ๐Ÿ˜ This gives her just enough of a peek a boo edge & still have that professional look during the day. I'm in love! #behindthechair #brightcolors #peekaboo #hairbydonnainriverside

Hi Josh

My new salon & location. Come check out the amazingness! Call 951 683 4521 to schedule an appointment.

After 7 years 4 months, I've decided to change salons. As most of you know, I don't move around often. But change is in the air & I'm excited for the next chapter in my life to begin in my new salon. ๐Ÿ˜ I have many of you to contact & several don't look at fb often or don't have it, so I will be calling & texting all the details the next few days. Stay tuned!

In honor of Halloween month...๐Ÿ˜‚ Have a great weekend everyone!

When I first started doing her hair, she had long hair mid back length. I wish I had thought to take a before picture before we took her hair short! She has this natural beautiful white hair & it aged her when it was long! Once I cut it off it lifted her & made her look more youthful. The long hair dragged her face down plus it was very thin on the top. The cut made her hair appear thicker. A great change for her! #shorthair #cutecut #behindthechair #womenscut #hairbydonnainriverside

He wanted a short cut with low maintenance. #micdrop #beforeandafter #menscut #behindthechair #hairbydonnainriverside #ilovemyjob #happyclient

This lil guy is my 3 year old grandson. Although crazy faced in picture #2, he's quite handsome normally. He sits more still than some of my adult clients (names won't be mentioned, you're safe ๐Ÿ˜˜). #behindthechair #hair #littleboyhaircut #grandson #cutiepie #hairbydonnainriverside

The Hook

Maybe an assistant is what I need. Lol Happy Friday!

The best thing about this photo is the story behind it, what's unseen. This beauty was referred to me, as most my new clients are. She was against having highlights because she had several horrible experiences with it. Our first visit was just touching up her roots to match her brunette color. I was curious about what happened to her but I didn't want to seem pushy. I showed her pictures of my work & told her if she ever wanted to give highlights another chance, I felt confident I could get her there. Surprisingly she scheduled her next visit to have highlights too. She's a new client, I didn't know if she'd return or change her mind about having highlights... it happens. After all her disappointed struggles with highlights, I'm proud to say she's very pleased with them. She text me later that her husband whistled at her when he picked her up from the salon. โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ #happyclient #colorchange #hair #highlights #behindthechair #beforeandafter #hairbydonnainriverside

So this happened today. I am proud of this because any hairdresser knows it's not easy to do. Especially keeping it uniform & not creating a definite line (which would look horrible). I think I've earned my bragging rights on this one. I first bleached her hair & then foil weaved in the teal on the ends. If it's anyone who can pull off this look it's this beauty! I sure had fun with this & the best part...a very happy client! Thank you for letting me tap into my 'extra' creative side & trusting me every step of the way! ๐Ÿ˜˜ #tealhair #blonde #funkycolors #haircolor #colorchange #behindthechair #hairbydonnainriverside

Sexy sassy! #beforeandafter #hair #color #hairbydonnainriverside

Roots be gone! Poof... this beauty wanted 3 colors which made it 4 colors keeping her natural color as one of the colors. The blend looks great on her! #behindthechair #hair #colorchange #beforeandafter #lovemyjob #haircolorspecialist #hairbydonnainriverside

This was said to me today! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ In truth, I've been told this a few times! #funfacts #behindthechair #funnystatements #meme #feelingimportant #lovemyclients #funjob #thepublicspeaks #theirtruth #happyhairclient

Some people accept their gray hair but most don't & that's where I come in. This gorgeous gal likes her white wisdom coming thru the front area of her hair but wanted to show off the true fun side of herself so we weaved in fuchsia! See that white streak? That's her natural color! The combination gave her the youthful edge she was searching for but kept some natural white she loves as well. Hair color can be challenging but it all starts with great communication. Stay true to yourself & what you want to reflect your inner fun self! If not color, maybe a youthful fun cut! ๐Ÿ˜

This beauty has naturally curly hair. I smoothed her hair then gave her a softer curl than her natural.

It's best to leave it to a professional.


I seriously need a wax๐Ÿ˜‚

Have you ever had a terrible, terrible hair experience that took hours and hours to fix? Me too.

Another before & after. We did a very natural looking color weave, took off a good 5 inches in length & gave her layers. Look at all the natural curl we found! #naturalcurl #colorweave #beforeandafter #beautifulhair #change #happyclient #lovemyjob #womenshair #hairbydonnainriverside

There was a lot of hair in the trash can after my work day yesterday. Big changes meant a lot of lost hair! Love before & after photos. #shaggytoclassy #beforeandafter #haircut #hairbydonnainriverside #menshaircut #change #whatadifference #cleancut

My conversation with my granddaughter who cut her own hair in the front

Me- you aren't in trouble...I just want to understand why you cut your own hair
Audrey in tears
Me- honey, you aren't in trouble. (I set her on my lap reassuring her by rubbing her back) I'm just curious what you were thinking when you decided to cut it
Audrey- I couldn't see. I wanted it out of my eyes.
Me- ok... so maybe you need bangs? (I pulled out my phone & brought up bang pictures)
Audrey smiled- that's what I want.

And that's how Audrey ended up with bangs!

Before & after done today.
