Hi Everyone! I’m Tara Bar’el, Wife, Mother, and Entrepreneur. Lover of Fashion and Beauty, Overall Wellness and Hippy at Heart.  Haute L.A. is my first baby and I am so proud of where we have grown to today.

I have been in the salon industry since 2001 assisting for the top stylist in my hometown and soon working as a licensed stylist in 2003. Haute L.A originally started in May 2013 as an online clothing boutique. I had my own solo business doing hair and decided I wanted to take on the fashion world! Haute L.A Boutique blew up overnight and I was now one of the top online clothing boutiques in the country! When I had the opportunity to take over the space at the salon I was also managing, December 2013, I jumped on it and it soon became Haute L.A Boutique and Salon! I was so excited but wasn’t quite sure of the direction I was going to go in yet. Three weeks later I found out I was pregnant! I couldn’t believe this was all happening at the same time but I said everything happens for a reason so here we go!! Well, I became very sick in the first trimester and Haute L.A. did not fully open the doors until February of 2014. I had about 6 months to get us up and going. I hired on a staff of girls and went for it.  That year was a whirlwind to say the least. After I had Aithan, my son, we ended up in the hospital for 3 weeks and everything fell apart before my eyes. Thankfully I had the support of family around me and the online boutique and this kept us going for the next 9 months, May of 2015 I was ready to get the salon up and going to the fullest and I was not stopping for anything this time. I decided the only way I could do this was to bring my son to work. Although crazy, I received the support from so many mothers in the South Bay and our books started filling up. I felt so unbelievably blessed and grateful for what was happening. During this time is when we started as a membership salon as well.  Our wonderful salon manager Shannon and I, worked so hard that year and it finally was all paying off. We brought in AVEDA in November of 2015 and that became another blessing. I have an amazing group of women who work with me and we only have more room for growth. I want to bring back the team atmosphere in salons. We all work together and I believe this is truly why we are successful. I am so excited to see where we go from here and I thank every person who helped us along the way.

Today we are thriving! The salon and boutique are going strong and I have added to my list of skills, essential oils educator. This has been one of my passions and I am so happy to be able to share this love with all of our clients.

Thank you for hearing my story and if you are in the area please stop by anytime and say Hi!

Much Love,

Tara Bar’el xo
