    Got my haircut here for the 1st time and OMG, this place is a little gem. Its hard to find, kinda like a speakeasy hair salon. The interior is gorgeous, the people are so nice. Will cut my hair while the owner was so friendly and amused me with all my question about his cute shop.Its right next to the beach and there are a couple coffee shops nearby. Its the perfect location, perfect atmosphere, perfect customer service and impeccable hair skills. If it could give it any more stars I would!

Will cut my hair with the assistance of Gary (the owner) & was so friendly and amused me with all my question about his cute shop.

    As a woman of mixed race & crazy curly, kinky, frizzy hair I've becoming SUPER particular about who I let/trust to maintain the mane! Lesia is a straight shooter who has invested her time and my money into guaranteeing me my healthiest, best looking hair of my lifetime! I am now on a regular schedule and proud to say I have said NO to cutting any crazy bangs at home, Box Dye or any cheap-o hair masks from Walgreens (no shame in the mask game but my hair is not screaming for thirst 24/7). She's educated, thoughtful and care about my unique hair types and what will look best on me! I'll follow this girl anywhere! Plus she's a great chat so the service flies by!

    Strands is GREAT, been coming here for years and never had a less than stellar haircut... each time the cut has been of extremely high quality. And very reasonably priced too! The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. Gary the owner is the best! He is fast but not too fast... he's really figured out the balance for the perfect haircut, and perfect haircut experience all around. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. 6 stars if I could.

    I started getting my hair done here during the pandemic since my girl in LA had to be shut down so often. This ended up being a silver lining as I've found my perfect hair match out in OC! Lesia has been a dream! She's super attentive, listens carefully, and executed perfectly :) I've had highlights, a hair cut, Brazilian blowout, styling and actually taken my color darker with her. Every time she nails it! I love having her here and I'm so happy to have found her!! Thank you Lesia! (Lesh-uh is how you pronounce it) :)

    I came in with a disaster of a dye job done somewhere else, and Lesia did an amazing job on such short notice.

    LANIE IS AN AMAZING STYLIST! She is as darling as she is talented. I am new to CDM and found her through her awesome online reviews. I am a 50 something-year-old brunette and unfortunately, at this age, need a partner to help me keep that color. Lanie has gone above and beyond to assist me in finding that the color and cut that I love.

    1000% yes to Strands Hair Studio! I decided to finally sit down and write this review because I am so impressed with my experience here. Most importantly, I found the most talented hair color & stylist/artist in Orange County (specifically Newport/Corona Del Mar area). Her name is Marlene, and she is extremely talented, not to mention- super passionate about what she does. I was referred to her through a friend while in nursing school and I communicated with Marlene via Instagram. She is very friendly, down to earth, patient, and full of heart. During Covid-19, it has been one of the biggest struggles to find a hair/beauty spot due to government regulations. After rescheduling a few times to find a perfect appointment date, we finally made it happen and I am so pleased with the results! Unlike most hair artists, Marlene made sure to do a hair strand test/ consultation before our actual appointment; this was to ensure that my hair was strong enough to bleach well, given my past exposure to chemicals and hair dye. She was also very informative and open to sharing her hair technique and process with me; I found it so interesting to learn about hair composition and products to consider. I cannot express how beautiful my hair looks after a good year of long, split ends and hair damage with past baylayage color.*The studio itself is very modern and has a beautiful interior design, I felt super comfortable and welcome inside. Strands Hair Studio has a nice vibe, especially because it's located near the beach. The studio has a little parking area in the rear (but has only 4-5 spots). Parking was never an issue for me! This young woman is so wonderful- she does hair cuts for both men and women, along with corrective color, baylayage color, and extensions! Marlene works very well with her clients to make sure they are completely satisfied with their hair experience; she is constantly making sure that she meets her client's needs and I cannot be happier having her take care of me! I had a good 5ish hours in the hair studio and even though we were strangers at first, I feel like I've known her for ages. She has such a beautiful soul and I can see her shine through her work. I had no high expectations for a new hair color but aimed for an ashy or blonde baylayage since my roots grew out. I also needed a hair cut because my hair grew super long during quarantine and ya girl needed that fresh look, haha. Marlene made sure that I was taken care of and listened to any of my concerns. The finished product was stunning and I have received many compliments for the new do! Marlene gave me some beachy waves to accentuate the color tones and highlights. I was so excited to go show off my new look! She deserves so much recognition for her quality client care and I would recommend her, 1000% hands down! PS. Marlene's social media is blooming and I admire all her hard work (@wildfl0wer_hair_). Refer to her instagram for info if you're interested in a new do, because you deserve it!

    This review is for Marlene, I cannot express how talented she is! She specializes in hair cut and style for both men and woman. She also is amazing with corrective color, balayage and hair extensions! Her work on social media says it all. I have always admire the work she does! If you're in need of a professional stylist in coastal Orange County she is someone to see! Thank you again Marlene, you are wonderful!!!
