The Artform Studio Salon

Monday, August 16, 2010

Adjacent to Japantown and the Los Angeles Artist District is every guy and gal's secret weapon- The Artform Studio Salon. Owner Sherry Younge and her team work out of a spacious industrial loft building and the common denominator behind their vast menu of services is personalized attention and consistently delivering unique, quality work that speaks for itself. Sherry has a way of taking something plain or classic and putting her own edgy twist on it. She's been doing my up-do's since I was lead singer of the band Children of the Sun circa 2004 and there has been no one else I've trusted more to hook up my coif when it comes to looking fly at special events, especially at my own wedding. If you're interested in a new look or want a bridal hair/make-up trial, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment, let the team at The Artform Studio Salon do what they do best, you won't be disappointed!
