Q&A with Salon D'Amore

Salon D'Amore is an urban chic salon in artsy Southtown where owner Holly Gonzalez and her team of stylists are specializing in bridal beauty. Check out my recent chat with her!

How did you get into the beauty industry?
I started when I was 18. I'd wanted to go to beauty college since I was in high school. I attended one of the best beauty schools in San Antonio, a family-owned school that's been here more than 30 years and boasted the highest passing rate for state boards.

You’re a full-service salon—what are some of the different services you provide? When you visit Salon D'Amore, you can enjoy everything from hair cuts and colors to waxing, eyelash extension application, and full-service bridal hair and makeup.

Is it just you or do you have an entire staff? I work with a staff of independent stylists, but when it comes to your wedding day, we're all part of your wedding hair and makeup styling team.

I like that you cater to San Antonio brides and the hometown girl—can you tell me a bit more about what that means? I love catering to the traditional San Antonio bride—those sweet, natural hometown girls-next-door with big hearts. I've always connected with my brides and have always felt that if I were a bride getting married in San Antonio I would want to be catered to and pampered. I'd want my dream hair and makeup and that's what we can give you at Salon D'Amore.

Can you cater to a bride and her entire wedding party? Absolutely. Once my team has taken care of the bridal party, I devote myself to the bride and work with her exclusively.

If it’s the bride and her entire party, do you close the salon? If my team and I aren't traveling to the wedding location, we do close the salon entirely for the bride and her party. We'll even have appetizers and mimosas prepared for them to help get them through the day, or they're welcome to bring in whatever they like. Either way, the salon is closed until the wedding party is styled and ready to go.

What do you love most about what you do? All of it. I especially love when a bride trusts me to use my creativity and style. But I always do a consultation with my clients before the day-of so we can get to know each other better.

What sets you apart from other wedding salons? Most importantly, we're a bilingual salon! But Salon D'Amore is also very urban chic. We're located in Southtown's art district, so even though we draw clients from all over the city and the surrounding area, I really based the salon on an artsy atmosphere. My stylists and I also constantly keep up with all of the latest techniques, we use professional-grade hair and makeup products designed specifically for professional artists, and we use USA-made makeup products that are not animal tested. That's one of the most important things to me when I'm looking for new cosmetics and products.
