Hi! We’re Stay Gold. We're a female-owned and operated contemporary hair salon located in Fullerton, California. Founded by stylists and friends Julie Mueller and Sara Katz in 2015, we wanted to cultivate an environment where clients could be comfortable, happy, and confident.
At Stay Gold, we make even the wildest hair dreams come true using vegan and cruelty-free products in a relaxed, safe, and queer-friendly space. While you are here we want you feel like a friend, and when you leave we want you to feel beautiful inside and out.
Appointments are available by appointment only. If you are interested in coming by for a service or consultation, click here.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
My name is Sara and I LOVE doing hair. I have been licensed in cosmetology since 2007 and I truly could not imagine building a career doing anything else. I specialize in corrective and creative coloring. I love passing on my knowledge to my clients so that they have a fully transparent and thorough understanding of what is going on during their hair appointment. I take every appointment as a opportunity to find what we could be doing better and strive to make every client feel confident in themselves through their hair.
I have worked all over Orange County over the last 13 years, but I have truly found a home in Fullerton. My hair bestie Julie and I have built Stay Gold Salon from the ground up, and want to continue to grow it for many years to come.
I live in Anaheim with my partner Chris and 2 cats, Luna and Iris. I am an Aries, INFP personality, and a proud Hufflepuff.
SOME OF MY FAVORITE HAIR JOURNEYS
Julie first discovered her passion for creative haircuts and coloring when she was just a teenager. While embracing bold colors wasn’t a trend yet, she was ahead of her time, using her own hair to experiment with unconventional hues and develop her own techniques before getting licensed in 2007.
Today, Julie still loves working with vivid colors and making client’s hair dreams become reality. When she isn’t at work, you can find her hanging out with her three cats, trying a new vegan restaurant, or indulging in the latest true crime podcast.
Julie is a Libra and a Slytherin.
