Check Out Rebecca Cikanek and Angelina Llanes’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Cikanek and Angelina Llanes.

Rebecca and Angelina, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
We met in cosmetology school and together dreamed of one day owning our own salon and boutique. We opened Cielo Salon in 2010 and quickly grew their business and were ready to expand in 2012 when they opened Cielo Boutique and Body Bar on the trendy State Street in Carlsbad, CA. In 2016, we opened Dollhouse Boutique in Carlsbad.

We now own Dollhouse Boutique Carlsbad, Cielo Boutique & Body Bar, and Born and Raised Ca Shoe Co in Carlsbad. The salon features talented stylists at a stunning location, complete with a lush outdoor walk-through garden complete with a koi pond.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Opening new businesses (such as the boutiques) learning daily about business and people. Covid was probably one of our biggest challenges, especially for the salon. We instantly knew we had to pivot all of our merchandise online. But, we made it through.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Our passion is doing hair at our salon. We both work a couple of days a week. We have a love for fashion and design.
