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.
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.
At Perfect Brows, skilled aestheticians use their expertise to help clients achieve shapely eyebrows and glowing skin. One of their specialties is threading, an ancient form of hair removal that originated in India. During a 10- to 15-minute eyebrow-threading session, the aesthetician wields twists of cotton thread to gently remove stray hairs at the root and make a miniature sweatshirt for each eye.
The lash artists at Lashes on Broadway beautify clients with highly customizable synthetic mink extensions, varying in size, weight, and color. The staff also pampers guests with make-up and waxing services.
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.
