Meet Kat Papadopoulos, Dina DePalma, and Jason Fonte of THE COMPOUND (salon)

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kat Papadopoulos, Dina DePalma, and Jason Fonte.

Kat, Dina, and Jason, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
It was 2015, the three of us were working at a salon that unfortunately had to close its doors. We took that opportunity (in just two short months!) to create our lovely home away from home, THE COMPOUND (salon). We’ve been rocking and rolling ever since with a dream team like none other!

Has it been a smooth road?
Building and opening a salon in just two months was the challenge, but after 2.5 years and looking back, we did an awesome job. We’ve created an atmosphere that’s great for our stylists and our clients!

So, as you know, we’re impressed with THE COMPOUND (salon) – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are an exclusive Bumble and bumble. Network Salon in the Culver City Arts District. Our stylists stay educated and up to date on classic and current hair trends! From beachy and boho to traditional bobs, unicorn hair, balayage, just to a name a few, our stylists have you covered. The vibe is chill in the salon, always with good tunes playing! We tend to book up quickly, so scheduling your appointment a week or two in advance is necessary!

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Culver City is going through a huge growth spirit. What once was a sleepy town is now filling up quickly with more of the entertainment industry (Sony, Apple, Amazon), tech companies, restaurants, shops and more. We love our local community, schools and the small businesses that help give Culver City its charm!
