Tanea Jordan

Owner and founder

Owner and founder Tanea Jordan had a vision of creating a place just like Serenity 808 since she was a teen. The dream has finally come to fruition. She recalls cutting and styling her mom’s hair after she came home from the salon because she was not quite happy with it. That snowballed into cutting and styling her sister’s friends hair, other family members, neighbors, and her own friends. She was the go-to- person for makeup and hair styling for special occasions like prom and other formal events ever since she can remember. Her talents were recognized early on. That feeling of beautifying others and making a difference never left her heart. But, she wouldn’t pursue her passion for cosmetology as a full-time career until a bit later in life. A degree in accounting, a few children, a meth addiction and a failed relationship would come first. She was on a rocky road.
Each bend in the road has created and shaped what Serenity 808 is today. There’s special significance in the salon name too. The Serenity Prayer is big in the recovery community and it is the cornerstone to Tanea’s sobriety. The 808 refers to Tanea’s sobriety date. It was August 2008 when her life changed forever and for the better. Her sobriety has provided her with a sense of serenity. Her husband Chris has been her biggest cheerleader in making her dream become a reality. When you step inside the salon you will feel that serenity too along with the special Tanea trademark (think sass factor) you’ll soon be craving.
Tanea is one of those people who is naturally curious and is a lifelong learner and is on top of the latest styles and trends. Whether you want cutting edge or tried and true, Tanea has you covered. She wants her clients to look and feel their best. She achieves this by providing great customer service in a comfortable, clean environment that has her clients clamoring to return for their next appointment.

Tanea has been doing my hair since she was in beauty school. My hair naturally is a dark brown, almost black shade. Tanea has magically altered my almost black hair color to a white blonde, as well as to the other end of the spectrum to a beautiful auburn color or a fire engine red color. She always makes sure I have realistic expectations regarding the length of time the process will be to complete the color I want, as well as an accurate price estimate regarding the process. She has no concerns with expressing her opinions if she thinks ...

I have been going to Laura for over three years and love her she is amazing at what she does. I am always happy with how my nails turn out each and every time. There are days I feel she can read my mind with her creativity she knows what I like and what style I want without me even telling her. Laura’s personality is so welcoming that time flies when am I sitting in her chair and she listens and gives cares for you as a customer. I leave my appointment with great nails and smiling because I always ...

“I am 74 years old but do not feel that old but many stylists wanted to give me haircuts to match my age. When I found Zaq he gave me a haircut with bounce and flair making mefeel ten years younger!! He continues to delight me with each visit. Zaq is the best hair designer in Reno!!!”
“Zaq is an amazing hair designer! His vision and skill always make me feel like a million dollars when I leave the salon. My haircut is exactly what I have asked for each and every time! When I was going through my avant-garde stage he made the color so vivid and beautiful. Many people gave me compliments which really made my day! He can do it all and that’s why I would not go anywhere else to have my hair done. Zaq is definitely my go to hair designer in Reno.”
