Why Go to a Men’s Salon

Orange County men’s salons offer specialized services and an environment tailored to the grooming needs and preferences of men. Here are some reasons why men should go to a men’s salon:

  • Specialized Services: Men’s salons typically offer services that cater specifically to men’s grooming needs. This might include tailored haircuts, beard grooming, mustache trimming, and other services that focus on masculine aesthetics.
  • Experienced Stylists: Stylists at men’s salons are often trained to work with men’s hair and facial hair textures, styles, and trends. They understand the nuances of men’s haircuts and grooming, which can lead to better results.
  • Masculine Atmosphere: Men’s salons create an environment that appeals to men. The decor, music, and overall atmosphere are designed to make men feel comfortable and relaxed while receiving grooming services.
  • Latest Trends: Men’s salons keep up with the latest trends in men’s grooming and hairstyling. If you’re looking for a modern and up-to-date look, the stylists at a men’s salon can offer valuable insights and suggestions.
  • Specialized Products: Men’s salons typically offer grooming products that are specifically formulated for men’s hair and skin. These products might address unique concerns like beard care, scalp health, and more.

Benefits of a Men’s Salon

  • Personalized Advice: Stylists at men’s salons can provide personalized advice on grooming routines, hair care, and styling techniques that suit your individual needs and preferences.
  • Privacy and Comfort: Most men feel more comfortable discussing grooming concerns and preferences in an environment where they are surrounded by others who share similar experiences.
  • Time Efficiency: Men’s salons often focus exclusively on men’s services, which can lead to shorter wait times and quicker service compared to unisex salons.

FOR MEN | Company Story

This Orange County men’s salon originally opened in September 2004 as metro FOR MEN in Irvine, California. Krista Martin, Master Men’s Hairstylist, independently owns and operates this men’s full-service salon and spa. This women-owned small business is the only upscale men’s salon and spa in Orange County, CA. It is a male-exclusive, masculine grooming environment where men get all hair, nail, skin, and body care treatments in a country club atmosphere.

Krista has more than 35 years of stylist and salon ownership experience. Most consider her a men’s grooming expert and salon operations guru. She launched m by FOR MEN, an exclusive line of men’s haircare products in 2009 during the Great Recession. With the launch of m by FOR MEN, salon clients consistently enjoy products made with their unique needs in mind. Krista’s journey of creating a salon where men can feel at home has not stopped. In 2018, metro FOR MEN moved to Lake Forest and became FOR MEN Salon | Spa. This move enabled Krista to focus on clients desiring an exclusive environment while adding premier spa services.  

“I am a committed men’s salon owner and am committed to our client’s experience with quality products and services.” — Krista
