Daphne Wrung, Owner/Stylist/Colorist/Skin Care and Waxing Specialist
Daphne is the owner of Salon Exodus and a highly-skilled hair and waxing professional with 26 years of experience. She specializes in a wide range of high-end hair services, from natural looks and easy-to-maintain cuts to creating fun, outside-the-box styles.
Daphne’s long-term success comes from truly listening to her clients and delivering services that exceed expectations. Her goal is to leave each client feeling happy, satisfied, and able to achieve similar results at home. She stays on the cutting edge of style through ongoing continuing education and by sourcing quality, sustainable products that result in healthier, more beautiful hair.
“I love the relationship aspect of my job,” Daphne says. “It’s so rewarding to meet new clients and their families, discover who they are, and watch how they change over the years.”
When Daphne opened Salon Exodus in 2004, she knew the cozy house located behind the Kenmore Safeway was the perfect place to take her career to the next level and let her entrepreneurial spirit soar.
In 2018, she recognized the opportunity to expand the salon by moving it to a new location in the revitalized area of downtown Kenmore.
The new and improved Salon Exodus is a reflection of Daphne’s evolving style, both personally and professionally. The upscale décor combines spa-like comfort with modern, industrial, and rustic accents and rich hues of purple and gray. It’s a warm and welcoming space that offers room to grow.
On those rare occasions when Daphne isn’t working, you’ll probably find her traveling with her long-term boyfriend.
Carla Novelozo, Stylist/Colorist
Carla is a licensed cosmetologist with an extensive background in specialty hair coloring and design. She first acquired her skills in 1985 (although there are rumors of men’s perm dating back to the early 80’s), and completed an extensive program focused on color education in 1991.
Her passion for making others look good and feel great has kept Carla in the cosmetology field for over 34 years – 23 of those years in the Kenmore area. And she has her family to thank for pushing her toward this profession. “My mom finally retired but my aunt still works behind the chair after 55 years,” Carla says. “Beauty is in our gene pool.”
Carla keeps her hair coloring and design skills up-to-date by regularly attending continuing education classes.
