Welcome to the Studio Taka Experience
A wonderful combination of indoor and outdoor spaces creates a unique, salon environment. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and with an outdoor teak living room and dining set, Studio Taka is truly a special place to escape.
At Studio Taka, a complete offering of hair and skincare services are delivered by highly skilled professionals with extensive training and experience. The entire staff is focused on providing a ‘beyond expectation’ experience and result. Each service is started with a signature scalp, neck and shoulder massage.
As an Aveda Concept Salon, Studio Taka carries a full line of hair, skincare, make-up and grooming products. The staff participates in on-going master level training through Aveda. Taka, Justin, Julio and Corey invite you to experience what they believe sets Studio Taka apart from the rest.
Studio Taka is proud to be the most reviewed and highest rated hair salon in Laguna Beach from 2013. Feel free to take a look at our glowing reviews on Yelp and Google Business.
The experienced professionals that make up the Taka team of stylist.
With a varied artistic experience, including the ownership of a small chain of flower shops, Justin Starr found his passion in creating masterful hairstyles for a loyal clientele. Now, as one of the senior stylists with more than 10 years of experience at Studio Taka and more than 13 years in the industry, Justin uses his natural artistry to transform and delight his clients.
Drawing from over 26 years of master level hair care experience, owner Takafumi Oiwa takes great pride in providing superior services in a stylish, relaxing environment. As owner of one of the first Aveda Concept Salons in Orange County, Takafumi also has a long experience with Aveda products and techniques.
Stylist Corey has been a part of the Studio Taka Team for more than four years, with almost eight years in the hair industry. Corey loves the feeling of transformation and change she can give her clients. Before she started working with her own clients in the salon, Corey spent a number of years apprenticing under owner Taka, honing her cutting, color, and specialty services.
From a very early age, Julio displayed a strong artistic talent and a fascination with styling hair. For more than 20 years – with the past 8 years at Studio Taka – Julio has built an enviable level of experience in all aspects of hair color, cut, and style. This experience pays dividends for his clients – from hair straightening to the Studio Taka proprietary bBlond® technique for amazing natural looking blond hair.
