Owner, San Rafael's Salon B, Bishlam Bullock

What are you best known for?

We’re great at high-end hair color, from balayage to exotic fashion color. I’m a certified master colorist through Wella and a certified master haircutter from Vidal Sassoon. What made me a great stylist, though, was a four-year training at DiPietro Todd Salon in San Francisco.

My wife is a master stylist and is great at creative color. Our focus is on textured and curly hair.

We have a huge multicultural clientele that we take care of like family. It isn’t always about hair, it’s about connection with people, too. We consider the space our home and people who join us are family.

What inspires you?

Interacting with people who are change makers in our communities or in the hair industry. I want to know people who’re willing to give their time to take care of other people. That’s how I run my life.
