Sonny, owner

Dearest Clients and Friends,
Words don’t seem like enough to express my depth of gratitude for your years of loyalty and commitment as a friend, hair stylist and business owner these past 25 years. I have been reflecting on my journey in the hair industry. I started as a student, became an assistant, evolved in to a junior stylist, worked extremely hard to become a senior stylist and then eventually an educator. I shared my knowledge, experience and love with so many in this industry. I helped develop junior stylist into well-rounded, respected senior stylists. I truly have so much to be proud of in my career.
As many of you may or may not know, my brother who was my best friend passed away unexpectedly. This came as an absolute shock and has rocked me. The struggle has been real and this major life event has become a catalyst for me to make a huge life decision. At this time, I have decided to put my scissors to rest and retire from this wonderful industry. For me, I feel proud of all that I have done in this industry. At 46 years old, I feel a call to start something new and direct my experience, my skills, my gifts and my love towards a new endeavor.
I feel that sometimes in life we need something big to shake us out of our comfort zone. I wish that what shook me was not the devastating loss of my brother but the reality is, it did. I trust that a new beginning starts now even if it isn’t very clear on what my next steps are. I trust that what is next for me will find me at this time in my life and this excites me.
I hope and pray that you will be a champion for me. I understand that this huge decision impacts you. I don’t take it lightly. I love each and every person that has spent time with me in my chair. I owe you an extra special “THANK YOU” for the allowing me to do what I loved for so long. Thank you for allowing me into your lives and for trusting me with the most important accessory humans have, THEIR HAIR.This is not a goodbye, this is an “until I see you again.” Perhaps in the salon, around town or heck who knows, until we work together again.Lastly, Carpe Diem- Seize the Day: To put aside all differences, all fears, all worries and just GO. FOR. IT.

Raven, stylist

Hi! I’m Raven. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I have dreamed of doing hair since middle school and the moment I graduated high school I enrolled at Bellus Academy and I have been doing what I love ever since. After graduating, I continued my education by apprenticing under my mentors Sonny and Ferrari Zizzo, honing in on my craft until becoming a full time independent stylist. I’m certified in extensions, and I enjoy all types of color but I have passion for balayage. I enjoy precision haircuts as well as lived in, low maintenance looks on any length. Tiger Eye is like my second home, where I get to show up and work with creative and inspiring people that keep me passionate about doing what I love. Well! Enough about me, I would love to get to know you, let’s do some cool hair!

What motivates you to work hard every day?

My motivation to work hard is my family, and to always give my clients my best. I absolutely love what I do and giving my clients the best experience. Being surrounded by creative individuals is definitely a motivation. Tiger Eye has some of the best stylist in San Diego who I’m constantly learning from.

What’s your favorite thing about your career?

I really love connecting with people and hearing their story. Having people feel very comfortable in my chair to talk about anything while creating magic on their hair. The ability to help someone feel and look amazing is so rewarding. When someone is going through a personal transformation and being a part of that through a haircut or color is amazing!

If you could have you any car what would it be?

I actually had a 1987 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer, a beast of a car that’s ready for an adventure. When I was 16, I had a small car, a Toyota Tercel and I almost always got hit on the freeway because of how small my car was, so having a Bronco was a car you couldn’t miss.

What’s your wallpaper on your phone?

My 8 month old son picking his nose. It’s actually pretty cute, I promise. My husband and I struggled for a few years on starting a family. When I turned 28 it was finally confirmed that I wasn’t going to be able to have children. So, when we found out I was pregnant at 29 we were in complete shock. He definitely is a miracle baby. He is such a beautiful funny little kid. I’m the luckiest gal.


Sam, stylist


Hi I’m Sam. I am originally from Connecticut but I have lived in San Diego for 9 years. I like animals and art. I have been a hairstylist for 15 years.  I love doing highlights, balayage, grey coverage or blending and all kinds of haircuts whether you want to just to trim what needs to come off or chop it all off. Although honestly, I am not a barber and clipper style haircuts are not my thing. I like to create a welcoming, calming and fun atmosphere within my chair, and making people feel comfortable while helping them feel their best is my favorite. So I hope you come and spend some time with me.


Fonsi, barber

“Fonsi – Where other barbers go to when they want the best haircut in town”
Coming from a family of several barbers, I grew up understanding the difference between just giving someone a haircut or making their day!
With +20 years of experience and a passion to make my customers’ hair vision a reality, I love offering my best work on every one of them. I believe in the American barbering traditions of the 1900s with a strong modern flair that brings a classic yet contemporary look. I am able to accomplish it by listening to what you want and offering the best options possible.
Love spending my free time with my  wife of 12 years and my two boys, raising exotic dogs and participating in eclectic hair shows.
