Rebecca and Brandon Larsen purchased Haven Salon + Spa in April of 2015.
Since then, they’ve re-branded, hired a new team and started letting their vision come to light. They have some awesome ideas that are starting to become reality!
Many of you may not know the two personally, so here’s your inside look!
Background: Rebecca grew up in De Pere, WI and Brandon grew up in Denmark, WI. Rebecca attended college at St. Norbert College in De Pere and graduated in May 2013. Brandon attended Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay, WI and is a Financial Advisor for Thrivent Financial.
Siblings: Rebecca is an only child (explains a lot sometimes, but we love her anyway!!) and Brandon comes from a family of 6 younger siblings!!
Relationship/Family History: Rebecca and Brandon met in June of 2009. In August of 2013, at a Packer Game, Brandon popped the question and Rebecca said YES!! They were married one year later on Oct. 18, 2014 at Lambeau Field! Do you think these two love the Packers or what? They have one daughter so far, Sutton. She’s a spunky toddler who definitely keeps them on their toes.
Pets: Both Brandon and Rebecca are pet people. They have a cat, Waffles and a dog, Dixie!
Favorite Color: Rebecca loves purple (hence the salon is now purple)!! Brandon’s favorite color is blue!
Favorite Hair Product: Rebecca couldn’t live without R+Co’s Death Valley Dry Shampoo or Badlands! She is a dry shampoo fanatic! Brandon is a fan of R+Co’s Wall Street, a new long lasting strong hold gel.
Favorite Make Up Product: Rebecca’s favorite Jane Iredale product is the BB Cream! She loves the coverage it provides without making her face look cakey.
Favorite Skin Care Service: Rebecca swears by the Dermalogica Bio Peel. She struggled with Acne in her early twenties and once she started the peels she has seen amazing results! She is acne free and does peels every 4-5 months!
What do you do when you’re not at Haven?: Rebecca + Brandon can usually be found at RedDoor CrossFit when they are not at Haven. The two found CrossFit over a year ago and have been hooked ever since. You’ll even see them both competing now! Rebecca sticks to the local ones, but Brandon competed in the Granite Games in MN this fall. Even Sutton has developed a love for CrossFit!
Did you always know you would run a salon? “I always knew I would own my own business, but I never dreamed it would be a salon like Haven! I’ve always been passionate about my skin, hair and taking care of myself from the inside out, so when the opportunity arose to purchase Haven I knew it would be a great decision. Brandon has been a great partner in all of this and he’s a huge part of the behind the scenes. I know I couldn’t do half of what I do without him”. -Rebecca
What makes you excited about work? “I love seeing people feel confident and beautiful both on the outside and the inside when they leave Haven. It’s such a great feeling when you see a client’s face light up because they love their new look or they finally have found pain relief after a massage. Since I too struggled with acne and skin insecurities, I love being able to help others reach a level of confidence I once lacked and help them feel beautiful. Aside from the clients, I love providing a happy, loving and fun work environment for all of my staff. This team deserves nothing but success, I love being able to provide that for them”. -Rebecca
