About the Owner

Marilyn SadeQ  Owner/Willo SalonSpa


Marilyn SadeQ is a world-renowned hair stylist, artist, Eco entrepreneur, educator, and mentor. SadeQ’s philosophy for living is a life that is guided through ones heart.

SadeQ is the owner of a collection of three AVEDA salon and spa’s, Willo at the Fountains at Roseville, an Aveda Lifestyle SalonSpa, Willo Beauty Bar at Loehmann’s Plaza in Sacramento, an Aveda Concept Salon and Willo Quail Point Shopping Center in Fair Oaks, an Aveda Concept SalonSpa. Both have uncommon customer service, relevant products and a commitment to sustainability.

Marilyn attributes her salons’ success largely to the Willo Family, a group of bright, well-trained and dedicated people who make every guest feel as if they are part of the Willo family.

Willo is a local salon with International cachet from its association with the AVEDA brand.. That brand has helped Willo thrive in tough economic times. AVEDA salons are “green” operations, a huge plus with guests. SadeQ proudly points to an array of green features at the Roseville SalonSpa, including smart lighting that saves energy, bamboo flooring, recycled lumber at work stations, concrete counters with water-based concrete, non-toxic paint throughout, sunflower seed particle board shelving and many products that come in recycled containers. “Even our computers are recycled,” SadeQ points out. “And they work just fine.”

AVEDA Salons are also synonymous with pampering. “We want our guests to walk in the door and be transported to a place of comfort and relaxation,” explains SadeQ.

The eco-entrepreneur is a rare bird that believes “making money” and “doing good” are not mutually exclusive. This is a person whose goals are to provide better products, services or innovations while leaving a minimal footprint on the environment. Eco-entrepreneurs live today, to green the world of tomorrow.
