ABOUT THE SALON

OPAL & COVE

Welcome to OPAL & COVE in Ormond Beach, FL.

Rorie & Madison met in Cosmetology school and worked together after graduation. They knew shortly after working along side each other that they wanted to create a culture that inspired them and others in the industry. They knew they wanted a place for guests & stylists to feel accepted and renewed, and that’s where the dream of Opal & Cove started. Opal and Cove stands for happiness, faithfulness, and confidence. They are a full service salon that specializes in balayage, trending color, precision cuts, and extensions with an emphasis on continuing education. Opal also illuminates the positive actions and emotions of the self, enhancing the good and true, and fostering one’s highest potential. It is a karmic stone with a reminder that what one sends out will return. It has strong connotations of happiness, faithfulness, loyalty and confidence.”
