What’s in a name

ELEU – I say it like this : eee – Loo . It’s totally not correct and I don’t care – It makes me happy to say it that way; I am an American with a California accent, i.e. I am naturally lazy with my words,Dude.

ORGANICS – because Organic products are used here, because referrals come organically through word of mouth, because Organic based cleaners are used instead of chemical cleaners, because the word Organic makes sense for a low emission salon. It makes Eleu something more.

Freedom in Greek is Eleutheria. Its root words Eleu and Elan ( how Latin works is a mystery to me ) mean “arriving at the place that you love finally” or in Hawaiian, “lively”, a rarely used girls name. It is also the name of a free spirited bartender that I met in Santorini, Greece. Seriously, how can this word not become one of your favorites. And how apropos that I, in all reality, named my salon after a Greek bartender. Go to Greece – you will immediately understand – and if you do hair, I know you are laughing right now and nodding your head.
