Meet the talented, passionate stylists of Villa de Goochi Salon and Spa!
Desiree has always wanted to own her own salon and continue to do hair while doing so. Her dreams came true 11 years ago when she opened her first location in Oxford. She has moved to her final destination in Oxford where she feels it is the perfect fit. She feels that thru her business she is beyond grateful of the wonderful people it has brought into her life. Most of her clientele has been with her from the beginning and so they are like family to her. She is constantly continuing her education as well as sharing this with her staff. She feels very strongly about keeping her staff up to date with the new trends to be able to offer them to all of you.
