Los Angeles is brimming with beautifully colored manes and cool girl cuts, but if you don’t know where the quintessential Cali manes are made, allow us to show you. From a quaint, anti-social media salon in Santa Monica that pumps out gorgeous color to Tracey Cunningham’s new quarters in the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and an out of sight Sunset Boulevard salon that exudes Brooklyn, these are the best boutique salons in Los Angeles. Click through the gallery now to familiarize yourself with your next go-to salon.
454 North @454north
Founded by Chris Bragg and Cervando Maldonado, 454 North’s clients include the Fanning sisters and Suki Waterhouse.
454 North Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90048
Salon Kazumi @salonkazumibh
Think of a Japanese oasis in the middle of the 90210, just minutes from Rodeo Drive—that’s Salon Kazumi. The laidback but posh place was founded by Kazumi Morton, dubbed the “brunette master” by Allure.
9725 South Santa Monica Boulevard, Beverly Hills CA 900210
Alen M @alenm_femmecoiffure
Insta-fame came naturally to this boutique hair salon founded by Alen M, whose team (including himself) pumps out quintessential Cali-girl hair for IG favorites, like Sazan Hendrix and Anastasia Karanikolaou.
8278 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles CA 90046
Loft 647 @loft647
When famed colorist Lorri Goddard opens a salon, you know it’s going to be next-level—and Loft 647 is just that. Go for hair that’s just as good as Reese Witherspoon’s and Chloe Grace Moretz’s.
647 North Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood CA 90069
Tracey Cunningham Salon
Colorist to the stars Tracey Cunningham now divides her time between Mèche Salon and a namesake salon she recently opened in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Beverly Hills.
9850 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Nine Zero One @ninezeroone
Some of Hollywood’s most sparkling starlets, like Selena Gomez, Shay Mitchell, and Vanessa Hudgens frequent the Weho salon, owned by Riawna Capri and Nikkie Lee.
8469 Melrose Pl, West Hollywood, CA 90069
Whimsical and bright, Striiike Salon is the beauty child of Streicher sisters Ashley (who cuts/styles), Jenn (who paints faces), and Kristie (who serves a fierce feather brow).
9278 Civic Center Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Harper Salon @harperonmelrose
Harper Salon not only does your mane good, but it’s doing the most to help Mother Earth. The salon is partnered with Green Circle Salons, a recycling program exclusively for salons that allows them to recycle over 80% of their waste.
8259 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046
Tucked on the corner of a low-key residential street in the 90210, Mare doesn’t give the impression that its clients include Emma Stone, Cara Delevingne, and Rooney Mara, but its client roster is brimming with big names.
152 North Wetherly Drive
West Hollywood, 90048
If you’ve ever marveled at the manes of Jennifer Lopez, Chrissy Teigen, and Chiara Ferragni, then you can thank Neil Weisberg and Tracey Cunningham for opening Mèche, whose Instagram is a paradise for the LA mane obsessed.
8820 Burton Way Beverly Hills, CA 90211
Art Luna Salon
You won’t find Art Luna on Instagram, but the Santa Monica salon pumps out IG-worthy color in its quaint space.
2116 Main Street, Santa Monica, CA 90405
Lost Hills LA @losthillsla
As Vogue put it, Lost Hills, a joint venture between Bumble and bumble alumna Sera Sloane and friend Kate Schlichter, is “a secret hair hideaway for New Yorkers in Los Angeles.” The salon is by word-of-mouth-appointment only, but once you’re in, expect a mane that’s part Brooklyn, part Cali.
2512-3/4 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026
