Ryan Weeden
Owner of Spruce
Master Hairdresser

Ryan Weeden

Describing Ryan seems simple enough – A talented professional, friendly and engaging, who proudly accepts the responsibility of creating a memorable experience for his clients. Yet, it only takes one visit to realize there is much more to him than meets the eye.

Although Ryan may call the East Coast his original home, he has always been a Southern California kid at heart, having spent much of his childhood listening to the Beach Boys and daydreaming of epic surf.  A born entrepreneur, Ryan has always felt most alive when he is creating something. He didn’t find himself in the artistic hair world until he had tried his luck on the stage and screen as an actor in New York City.

After deciding that the life of an actor in overcrowded New York City wasn’t his cup of tea, it took only the simple suggestion of a trusted friend that he make a career as a hairdresser.  Fast forward 10 years later: Ryan Weeden and his Spruce team are now one of the highest-rated and most sought after hairdressing companies in San Diego.

What stands out the most to his varied clientele, aside from his raw skill, is his easygoing nature and ability to relax even the most tense and scissor-fearing clients with his warm soul and charismatic personality. Confident, yet humble, salon guests quickly decide they want to return again and again.

As far as talent and skill, Ryan is masterful at what he does. Ryan has been trained by two of the world’s most prestigious hairdressing companies, Toni & Guy Hairdressing and Redken. Along with his strong commitment to excellence, Ryan’s focus on current trends and ongoing education keep his abilities sharp and his Spruce team giant steps ahead of the competition.

Dana Duffy

A Chicago, IL native, Dana made the move to San Diego with her dad, and two brothers when she was only 12 years old. Quickly adapting to the easy California lifestyle, she found herself enjoying countless hours at the beach, or hiking Torrey Pines Reserve.

It wasn’t until her college years in Santa Barbara that her creative side got the best of her. After much thought, she decided it was time to pursue a career in the hair industry; a passion she carried with her from a very young age.

Soon she found herself working under the tutelage of a master colorist here in San Diego, where she learned the skills and technique necessary to become a master in her own right.

Dana then decided to move to LA to further her career, and quickly got involved in both the fashion and film industry. Dana had the opportunity of working with many professional models and actors, such as Wes Bentley and Jamie Alexander.

Although working in Los Angeles was a dream come true, her heart was still in San Diego.

Fast-forward to today, Dana has landed in La Jolla, joining the elite Spruce Team. As it turns out, Spruce’s owner, Ryan Weeden, had the pleasure of mentoring Dana early on in her career.

At Spruce, Dana’s specialties include fine-tuned highlights, fashion-forward Ombre and Balayage technique, and natural-looking hair extensions.

When it comes down to it, Dana truly loves the power of good hair; how it can transform mood through the art of color, by creating customized, low-maintenance upkeep.

Amazing what a GREAT cut can do for lifeless, fine hair. And the ombre color job he did is the best I’ve had done. I’m happy to have found someone in San Diego that makes me love my hair again.
