    I have been getting expert hair care from pro-hair artist Justin for about the last 10 years. He is an expert hair stylist. My haircuts by Justin are always super stylish and make me feel and look beautiful. If your looking for a super awesome hair experience with one of not the only best hair artists but also just a wonderful person, go see Justin now! He was also able to accommodate me by cutting my hair outside. Just a wonderful overall experience! I highly recommend!!!

    Justin is beyond the best and worth  the drive from LA!! I've been seeing Justin for color for five years ++ and thank you his incredible skill and artistry I always leave looking amazing!

    Recently he took  me from dark brunette to beautiful blonde . He made the process natural and seamless. I continually receive compliments on my new hair color thanks to Justin. . (Photo attached).

    A true artist, good listener and just all around awesome person with a huge heart. He goes above and beyond and really cares that you look your best.. every single visit!

    Three of the four walls are open air entrances (one an awesome ocean view deck) and the salon goes beyond with cleanliness and COVID precautions.  I feel super safe getting my hair done here during the pandemic.   The vibe and rest of the staff are fabulous too. So welcoming and sweet. I'm so grateful I found  Studio Taka and  Justin. Highly recommend!!

    WARNING: THEY FRIED MY Hair. Was going to Taka for a bit over 1 year, got the " B&B" hoax done and highlights. Last time I went was January 2019 & my hair was totally ruined. Almost 10 months later it is extremely damaged from the products used ( Bleach & Bleach ) poured onto my head. I have been to 3 different stylists since as well as briefly attending Beauty School. All the hairstylists & Beauty School instructors told me they never saw anything like what happened to my hair in their respective careers. Taka wants to sell his overpriced Contiiumn conditioner, which by the way I purchased & had professionally ( ??? ) applied $70.00. I always gave a 20% tip & was never late for appointments. Taka over books clients , once I waited 3 extra hours while his assistants worked on other victims. Go elsewhere is my advice- strange vibes in that place too. It will take at least another year to grow out the extreme damage they did to my hair, emotionally it's been a horrible roller coaster daily - FRIED hair cannot be concealed. DO NOT GO TO THIS SALON!!!!!

    Taka and team have been taking care of me and my hair :) since 2008. I love everyone who works here. They’re all so nice and so talented! Taka knows how to cut and style all hair types, including asian hair. I always receive compliments and I even receive compliments a month or two later because he knows how to cut hair so it grows out nicely. The studio is very relaxing. There’s even a patio to chill on too. The Aveda products are high quality and the only products I use for my hair. After years of trying to find ways to help my bad psoriasis (dr prescribed and various store products), Aveda saved me. I’ve been using the same shampoo, conditioner and serum since 2008 when Taka gave me a money back guarantee that they would manage my condition. The price point seems high at first but 1) these are the ONLY products that have helped my scalp 2) the products last a very long time. Make an appointment here. You’ll be so happy you did!

    I've been coming here for a while now and Justin is amazing! My hair is a gorgeous shade of golden blonde. If you're a blonde or if you want to be one, I highly recommend coming to Studio Taka and letting Justin work his magic! I'll keep coming back!
