About Charleen

Charleen has been involved in the hair and beauty industry since 1989. She has traveled all over and gained knowledge and experience through working for different European and American hair companies. She worked as a salon owner and educator for more than 16 years. Charleen’s skill as an amazing colorist and has additionally enabled her to work as a color educator for Brocato from 2009-2013. Traveling and teaching hair coloring to other stylists was not nearly as fulfilling for her as working with her clients at home. She truly enjoys working one on one with clients and is incredibly gifted at finding the perfect hairstyle for each individual person.

Although she is well educated and has more than 27 years experience her true skill lies in being able to connect with each individual and see them as their best. She specializes in bringing out your best features and making your hair fit you as an individual rather than just giving you a one-size-fits-all haircut. She leaves you with a personalized look that is not like anyone else. Her experience and passion and dedication for helping people look their very best shows with every style she does. Charleen is a true hair master.

“I believe everyone has a unique beauty all their own, it is my passion to bring out the best in everyone I touch and teach them how to achieve a fabulous look simply. As a very active and busy woman, I understand the need for low maintenance hair while still looking great!”

It's just hair, right? In my case, no. Like Samson, it's my power, and Charleen helped me find it. This gal is worth every *** penny. Why haven't you already booked an appointment????

Some years ago Robert Redford starred in the movie, the Horse Whisperer. As far as I am concerned Charleen Hess is the Hair Whisperer. When I first went to her 3 years ago she spent time asking me several questions about my hair and how much time I like to spend on it, etc. She ‘listened to it’ as she brushed it and played with it to determine its texture and how it grows and moves. Then she gave me the best haircut I ever had. It didn’t seem like she was even doing that much but now my hair moves naturally and falls into place very easily.


After decades of coloring my hair it was dry and brittle. But with her knowledge of quality products she quickly brought it back to be healthy and shining once again. Along the way Charleen has also taught me various skills and tricks to manage my hair. No other hair dresser has ever done that for me the way she does.


Her salon is quiet and peaceful and Charleen is warm and friendly. And most of all, she just loves to do hair and make her clients feel great about themselves. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a quality hair experience.

Charleen is a magician with my color and curly hair! She discovered I had curls and encouraged me to grow it out and I absolutely love it!

I have been going to Charleen more years than I can remember, More than ten years. My hair falls in place and I don't do anything but comb it in place and let it dry. Just what I need since I am in the pool three days a week. She is the best.

I've been a customer of Charleen’s for about 14 years. She is the best hair dresser I've ever had. People stop me in stores and public venues to compliment me on my hair regularly. Knowing that you look your best is such a morale booster. You are happier and more confident when you look classy and fabulous. And Charleen makes me look that way. I hope I never have to do without her wonderful talent to give joy to her customers.

Charleen has been styling my hair for over four years. She's is amazing with color and I am always impressed with her styling abilities. Charleen takes great pride in her work and she is very detailed and thorough. I love my color and have received compliments from friends; as well as, strangers. Customer satisfaction is of high priority and Charleen will put in extra time to make changes if needed to ensure her client leaves happy. Beyond Charleen's abilities as a stylist, I enjoy her calm nature and holistic approach to health and beauty. And I have to admit that getting my hair washed by Charleen is probably my favorite part of the salon experience!

Kristin C.Hair Client

Charleen has been my hairdresser for many years now, she is wonderful, professional, caring and best of all great at her job! I love how she always asks " what's working, what's not" helping me, as her client, get the best cut and color possible. Not only does she focus on what cut fits the shape of your face and the texture of your hair but she is also superior with her color mixes. I always appreciate the free 'polish' trims she does between cuts, helping me avoid those bad hair days which we all hate!


She is rarely late, but when 'life happens' she always texts ahead so you are not left hanging. I encourage anyone, make an appointment with her, you will not regret it!

A. StevensHair Client

Charleen has been my hair magician for about 3 years now, and I have never looked better! There are a lot of great stylists in this town, but Charleen is unique. She has a trained (and gifted) eye for helping you choose the best style for you - taking into account your hair texture, face shape, head shape, body type, and lifestyle factors.


For several years she just cut my hair and made it look gorgeous. But last year we added color to the picture, and now I can say - unequivocally - that Charleen has the power to help you transform your external look into the fullest expression of yourself, and what you want to project into this world.
