Hammer & Nails celebrates its 3-Year Anniversary in Laguna Niguel
Successfully navigating the numerous pandemic closures throughout 2020, Mike & Beverly Shepherd’s Hammer & Nails has emerged as “the” destination for premier Men’s Grooming Services in Orange County.
When you visit HAMMER & NAILS in the Ocean Ranch Village in Laguna Niguel, your most difficult decision centers around which cable program to watch or what premium beverage to enjoy while receiving your services. Providing a full-range of experiences from Premium Haircuts, Beard Grooming and Old-School Straight-Razor shaves to their cornerstone experiences for Hand & Foot Grooming (Men’s MANicures & Pedicures). Continuing to newly added services such as Facial Waxing (eyebrows, ears & nose) and Face Skin Treatments, making it your premier one-stop destination for confidence to always be looking and feeling your absolute best.
“We’ve built a ‘Man Cave’, and it has everything you’d expect,” says Mike. “Our guests can relax without all the astringent smells you typically find at normal nail salons. Instead detecting the subtle scents of cedar, leather, and steel. We have an incredibly cool custom ‘57-Chevy lighted door panel that welcomes guests before being warmly greeted by one of our Client Concierges.”
When you first arrive, your eye will then be drawn the larger-than-life graphic of sparks exploding from the Hammer and is impacts the steel beneath it. As you are still taking in the rugged, weathered corrugated steel wall behind the reception counter, you are greeted with a warm friendly smile, offered your choice of a premium complimentary beverage including choices such as Ketel One® Vodka, Macallen®, Crown Royal®, selection of craft beers, wine, or soft drink.
Mike & Beverly have assembled a team of the top talent in Orange County provided 5-Star services to local residents as well as many from out of the area that may be vacationing at one of the many local luxury resorts in the area.
“Love this place! Very relaxing and it’s great to pamper yourself every once in a while. They have the works: as haircut, manicure, and pedicures in your personal man cave. Staffs great and always very welcoming.”– Luis V., Lake Forest
“With couples getting married at these amazing resorts, many will schedule groomsman parties to be sure they are all looking sharp and “on point” for their special day,” says Beverly.
Benjamin F, from Dana Point shared: “Took my father and brother here to kick off a birthday celebration with a shave. They worked the schedule for us to minimize time in the waiting room. The shave was great–hot/cold towels, beard oil, and warm shaving cream makes the luxury experience. Took absolutely world class care of us. Certainly, will be back.”
“My wife surprised me and booked an appointment for me and I’m sure glad she did!” says Marvin P. from Rancho Santa Margarita; “[I] Didn’t realize how much some TLC was needed. Great, clean, and relaxing environment! The whole team was fantastic, friendly, and awesome at what they do! My wife LOVED the way Ava cut my hair, definitely recommend going to her! Lulu left my feet feeling as soft as ever and Beverly left my face glowing! Thanks Mike to you and your whole team for making me feel welcomed and like a Million bucks! Looking forward to my next visit! Thanks again!”
Another happy client, Sean L. from Laguna Niguel adds “I love this place. Finally, a place that men can go to get nails and other grooming needs taken care of, that doesn’t have us sitting next to large groups of women picking their colors. No smelly acrylic fumes, just big leather chairs, a nice beverage, and wonderful, friendly technicians who make sure we look our best. Tune into sports or the news on the big screen TVs in front of every chair or just close your eyes and enjoy the experience. I promise, once you give it a try, you’ll be back.”
