Hi! A little about us...
Founder & Stylist
Ari created Fig & Clover in 2010 with hopes to give her clients an intimate salon experience.
Ari aims to create a safe environment for all clients and provide a space for unique self expression and original hair design. We love being surrounded by artists, great restaurants, locally owned shops and a supportive culture, which is so much a part of north Oakland.
Fig & Clover is not just another salon - it's about being part of a community and creating a respectful and safe environment for everyone.
Melody Sage offers high quality, low chemical mani/pedi services that cater to the whole self: mind, body and spirit.
With consciously sourced, all natural, and made-in-house products (paraben/fragrance/cruelty free!), luxe massage, aromatherapy and no funky nail shop fumes, Fig & Clover is an Eco Diva nail shop :)
Jillian describes herself as a holistic hard ass and hairstylist. She seeks to provide folks from all walks of life with personal, deep and affirming care, and beautiful hairdos. Jillian strives to always use products with the least amount of artificial scents, harmful ingredients - to the body and the environment who she sees as one in the same - and products made in small batches, never from any of the big beauty conglomerates. Jillian loves doing haircuts and colors of all kind and would love to see your head in her hands. Clients can book with her through her website gnarside.com
Hailing from outside of LA, Ruby has lived in the Bay Area for the past decade, and uses the creative, organic grit of Oakland as her main inspiration for doing hair. Versatility and creativity is where she thrives, having been thoroughly trained in every haircutting tool — whether it be scissors, razors, or clippers. She is a lover of art and the written word and this imaginative eye lends itself to creating any style. Her main goal is to work with the client to affirm their aesthetic, as well as enhance it.
Hannah began her hair career in Santa Cruz and moved to San Francisco in 2009 in pursuit of further education and inspiration. She completed an apprenticeship at diPietro Todd to become a cutting specialist there, before moving on as an independent stylist. Hannah is very comfortable creating strong geometric shapes although she would consider her first love to be softness, natural texture and a more lived-in look. She works with scissors, razor or a combo of the two, and one of her biggest characteristics as a stylist is that she doesn’t believe good hair has to take much time or effort. Hannah is all about finding easy ways for clients to coax their natural hair into being its best self, instead of demanding it to be something it’s not.
I’m Hannah (sounds like Hanukah), my pronouns are she/her. I'm a queer independent licensed nail technician and nail artist. I specialize in custom nail art, natural nail health, and long-lasting gel manicures. I especially love doing art inspired by jewelry, textile prints, and nature. I love nails because they're special, personalized skin-suit decorations that can help us feel more at home in our bodies. Plus I love a good click-clack. In addition to nails, I also work in public health STD prevention (ask me about antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea). FYI- I do nails about 1 day a week and have limited appointment availability.
