Sometimes a haircut is the bright point of a day. At W Salon Studio, stylists give hair the snip or injections of color in a bright and open space that oozes classy comfort. After a sleek cut and design, clients can step up to the color bar for a single process color or glaze, or go more subtle with highlights or corrective color. Frizzy hair falls straight after a Brazilian blowout, and shorter locks get an instant growth spurt that only the legs can relate to with Hotheads hair extensions. Trusted products from Goldwell, Moroccanoil, and Redken alter hair's texture or finish off looks, letting you walk out of the salon ready to take on the next part of your day.
Owner Sherry Behzadi helms Charisma Salon & Spa, drawing from more than two decades of experience in the beauty industry. Sherry’s dedication to customer service has garnered notice from her clients, but has also been recognized by newspapers including the Capistrano Dispatch, which awarded it the 2009 Golden Horseshoe prize for Best Salon/Barbershop.
But accolades from the press aren't what drive Sherry and her team. Instead, they focus on providing their clients with styles that complement their natural beauty. To do this, they turn to a stock of more than 20 beauty brands, including Redken, Schwarzkopf, Great Lengths, and Brazilian Blowout, to straighten strands, add length, and highlight locks. The fashion-forward studio also customizes skincare treatments with Dermalogica products, which leave complexions more hydrated than a water bottle hooked up to an IV.
The stylists and aestheticians at Salon 105 provide a pressure-free experience, from their friendly demeanors to their zero-pressure shampoo bowls, which feature built-in head rests to keep client necks from aching. They amenably perform facials, waxing, and all manner of hair services. Even the products they choose convey an earthy, worry-free vibe, such as L'Anza's flower-based line of "healing color care" serums, which extend hair color without the aid of a protective museum display case.
Fery's salon experience started more than 25 years ago—a decade of which was spent in Europe. Since opening Hair Design in 1995, she's trimmed and colored locks for clients ranging for men, women, and little ones. Her salon also offers facials and threading. The latter is an ancient hair-removal method: twisted strands of cotton thread pluck stray hairs from eyebrows, upper lips, and teeth.
Brook Owens works with her clients to create new styles for special occasions or everyday life. The expert stylist specializes in blondes, and uses the Scruples Blazing Highlights system to add dimension to hair. Ms. Owens has also trained in many straightening and smoothing techniques.
Taylor Hill Salon's scalp-sculptors weave their style experience, new trends, and the clients' quirks to cultivate attractive sets of strands. Brick walls and streaks of natural light color the quaint, inviting interiors at Taylor Hill, setting a tranquil sanctuary for fashioneers to trace their trimmers and for their subjects to recline and envision their childhood pet as a fireworks display. Each of the stylists commits to match their snips to the client's desired rhythm and style, and they'll seal in the freshness with a thorough blow dry and revitalizing conditioning treatment.
