About Us & The Salon
A friendly atmosphere and internationally recognized professionals will make your visit unforgettable…
I was born and educated in Finland, it was in the cities capital Helsinki that my career started. After completing hairdressing collage I went on to work in one of the top salons in the city centre. Here I gained a strong understanding of the fine structure of Scandinavian hair which is a little more delicate and requires a little extra attention.
The next step in my career took me to London giving me the perfect opportunity to sharpen up my language skills. Here I worked in some of the well known salons where I still have strong contacts today. While in London I also worked as a free lance makeup artist and hair stylist doing high fashion photo shoots, advertisements and working within the film industry. I gained so much experience and although I loved life in the city it was time to move to a sunnier climate.
I have been living and working in Marbella for over 15 years and proudly opened my own salon in the spring of 2015. I am very keen to stay up to date with the latest fashion trends and developments in hair technology so I enjoy doing regular courses here in Spain and internationally. My passion is in technical work, I love colouring hair as it is amazing how just a little change in shade can make your skin tone more flattering or make your eyes brighter.
I find living in Marbella you need a little outside inspiration to stay on top of your business so I enjoy travelling and seeing what the rest of the world has to offer.
I speak fluent Finnish, English and Spanish.
How it all came to be…
I opened La Vida by Vera in the spring of 2015 and it just goes from strength to strength. La Vida by Vera is a full service salon where you can get your nails manicured while your highlights develop or have a nice relaxing pedicure while your extensions are being fitted. With a friendly and relaxing atmosphere our internationally recognized professionals will make your visit unforgettable.
So far, it has been a BIG success. We nearly fully booked everyday so please when calling for an appointment give a little notice to avoid disappointments.
La Vida By Vera is located in a hart of the golf valley, right next to the famous golf course Aloha, In Aloha Pueblo, Local 23. Just around the corner from the well known bar Links and El Banco Restaurant..
