From Sao Paulo, to Melbourne, Australia, to Seattle, Sonia Sousa has found her home in Friday Harbor. Specializing in hair coloring, cuts, wedding design, Brazilian blowouts and skin care, Sousa honed her love for cosmetology in her native Brazil where she owned and operated her own salon 17 years.

She now lives in Friday Harbor with her husband Chris, a Peace Island Medical Center registered nurse.

Working in cosmopolitan Sao Paulo, as well as other major cities in Brazil and Australia, Sousa’s people and technical skills and broad product knowledge earned her a loyal following. Some clients even flew back for her services after moving hours away.

A creative mind for style, Sousa is a thoughtful, caring, professional person dedicated to satisfying clients with amazing results. Her many satisfied customers include men as well as women, particularly brides, mothers of brides and mothers of grooms.

Sousa has design skills and a good eye for color.

”Never had a bad [hairdo] from her. I highly recommend her,” said Sigrid R., Seattle.

“Sonia is the best hairstylist I ever had. Her styling and coloring are amazing. Haven’t found another like her – miss her heaps,” said Anny L., Melbourne, Australia.

“Sonia made me feel exclusive; she is unique. An excellent professional, with a warm charisma. I have not yet found a stylist who satisfies me since,” said Juliana P., Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“My first appointment with Sonia was fabulous in every way. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Her lovely personality quickly put me at ease. She asked relevant questions and checked in with me throughout the cut to be sure we were on the same page. Sonia is a hair stylist extraordinaire with a special talent,” said Janie H. Friday Harbor.

“Sonia not only brings Brazilian panache to the Friday Harbor salon community but years of experience listening carefully and patiently to her client’s needs to deliver exactly what they are looking for – It is a delight to work with her!,” Paul H. Friday Harbor.
