A Little About Me

Hey Family, I'm so glad you found me!! Welcome and Thank You for visiting. ​Come and experience the Maete Kenea difference. Having over 20 years of combined experience in the industry, I've decided to share myself in a more authentic way. This means exceptional services and professional results are my top priority. I want to know all my client's beauty needs and make them available. You'll leave feeling refreshed and beautiful. Book an appointment today and let me uplift your spirits. I look forward to meeting YOU.


I'm Maete Kenea and I, like you all, have many job titles. I am a extensions specialist, a certified master wig maker, I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist in California since 2000, but a hair stylist since 1997, the first time I got paid for doing hair I was seven, I’m a healthy hair lover, and, best of all, a mother of two boys and girl.

When I'm not behind this chair you'll find me at the beach or at a local farmers market looking for natural products and healing. I love to dance and express myself through movement. Learning new ways to bring positive energy everywhere I go is my number one goal!! Living a healthy mindful lifestyle is what I’m about. Hair, Beauty and Life is our Moto.

Being a stylist definitely is a part of my DNA because I'm truly the happiest when I'm sharing and servicing my guests. Each woman is different, and I pride myself on taking the time to connect with each and every person who sits in my chair. I want all my clients to feel seen and heard. I strive to teach all my clients that they are beautiful from the inside out and I will help them bring out all their beauty desires. All of my clients are given a free hair styling tips at their first appointment so that they always know how to recreate their look at home. I am a teaching hairstylist; I need clients to know the basics of their hair to maintain a healthy hair regimen.

So as you can see….I love life, health, wealth, all things that make us better. Tell me, some of your beauty desires? Are interested in wig units, but scared? Do want to add fullness to your hair that’s undetectable? Do you want to learn how to treat your natural hair for growth? Are you looking for an experienced knowledgeable hairstylist? Whatever your haircare and beauty needs are, I got you Homegirl!!!!
