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.
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.

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.
Vincent Michael Newlan began his career as a shampoo boy at the famous Bruno & Soonie Salon in Beverly Hills, but it wasn’t long before he worked his way up to the role of artistic director. In addition to arranging the illustrious coiffures of celebrities including Helen Hunt, Barbra Streisand, and the thimble from Monopoly, Vince studied under master stylists at Vidal Sassoon of London and has returned several times for additional training. When he isn't primping tresses, he shares his experience and knowledge with his team of seasoned stylists. He also cultivates a gallery-style atmosphere at his studio, decking walls with colorful Kirk Saber paintings and fueling creative instincts with cups of handcrafted espresso.
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.
Salon Soleil’s futuristic beds envelope clients in a russet glow while maximizing comfort and safety. Entry-level bronze-lovers can unwind on the acrylic sheets of the low-pressure Solaris 442 as stereo speakers pipe in soothing audio and administer informal hearing tests. The medium-pressure Advantage 400 and high-pressure Matrix Glammy eradicate pallor with deeper, long-lasting tans, and the Super Cyclone stand-up bed employs hue-boosting rays in brisk, eight-minute sessions. For patrons who desire trophy-winning skin sans UV exposure, Salon Soleil’s red-bulb-rejuvenation therapy works to create clearer, tighter, and less wrinkled-looking exteriors without surgery, injections, lasers, or trick mirrors.
