Meet Ona Diaz-Santin, Celebrity Hairstylist.

Ona started doing hair 20 years ago. Influenced by her great- grandmother in the Dominican Republic who cut hair for her friends and family and then by her mother, a immigrant “hairdresser” who owned four shops in New York and New Jersey over a period of twenty years, Ona’s destiny was

a no brainer.

Ona’s ambition, coupled with hard work, paid off. In addition to being the Creative Director at 5 salon and Spa, Ona uses her creative talents for television, fashion and print. Actors, musical artists, and corporate executives are among her clientele. She’s worked with celebrities: actor Wesley Snipes, news anchor of CBS and editor at-large for the Oprah magazine Gayle King, co-host of Outnumbered as well as news anchor of Fox report weekend Harris Faulkner, music artist Dionne Warwick , music artist Danny Rivera, actress Judy Reyes , model Nicole Mitchell Murphy , NYC Fashion Week designer Adrian Alicea, Red Carpet movie Premieres such as Iron Lady, Belle, Top Five , Magazines Latina, 201, BC and more.

Next to raising her family, supporting women in the salon business, is Ona’s priority. 5 Salon and Spa is proud to have an in-house education program for future stylists where Ona teaches her outstanding techniques. Hairstyling is her passi on but so is her Dominican culture. Ona is the Executive Producer of the documentary film Pelo! Pelo! that reveals the stories of Latina salon owners, putting the spotlight squarely on the rapidly growing Dominican salon business. Like Pelo!
