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.
Other ongoing projects include editorial hair design for media and magazines, such as Locale Magazine. He also proudly educates and inspires other salons and stylists for the world-renown Kevin.Murphy brand, and is authoring his first book, currently titled Suite Success.
