When he visits HAMMER & NAILS | Men’s Grooming Shop in the Ocean Ranch Village in Laguna Niguel, his most difficult decision centers around which premium beverage to enjoy and what cable program to watch on his own personal big-screen TV while receiving his 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), as well as services such as Facials and Facial Waxing (eyebrows, ears & nose), making it his premier one-stop destination for confidence to always look and feel his absolute best.
“We’ve built a ‘Man Cave’ and it has everything you’d expect,” says the owner, Beverly Shepherd. Adding, “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 Concierge’s.”
When you first arrive, your eyes are immediately drawn to 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, Macallan®, Crown Royal®, selection of craft beers, wine, or soft drinks.
Beverly first came to America from the Philippines in 2009. Shortly after she met her husband, Michael while she was working at the Nordstrom cosmetics counter in Fashion Island. Beverly & Michael married in 2017 in a romantic beach ceremony at the El Nido Resort in the Philippines. Mike sold his previous company, an electronics & materials test lab, in 2015 and they wanted to start a new business together. After seeing the episode on SHARK TANK® featuring the original founder of Hammer & Nails, they decided to open the first HAMMER & NAILS Franchise in Orange County in Laguna Niguel and just celebrated their 4th anniversary for the shop.
Bev & Mike have assembled a team of the top talent in Orange County providing 5-Star services to local residents as well as many from out of the area and those vacationing at one of the many local luxury resorts in the area. “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,” Beverly stated. While our incredible Barbers/Stylist can keep anyone looking their best and have proven time-and-time again their confidence and skill for clients seeking a new look and even a total transformational haircut style. Beverly also added, “it is not uncommon for gentlemen to visit our shop each month and spend several hours, starting with a Premium Haircut and Shave or Facial then relaxing in our Hand & Foot Grooming Man Cave for one of our Signature Manicure/Pedicures combos like the Big Daddy Aromatherapy.
“It was a good experience for me. I was there after a tough day and felt welcomed. I have received several compliments on the haircut and will be back for more soon. Thank you.” – T. Alvarez
“Another great experience at Hammer & Nails. I don’t live in the area but often visit friends in Dana Point and Laguna Niguel who turned me on to Hammer & Nails so I always try to stop in for a haircut or manicure/pedicure. I think this was my 4th visit. The stylists and nail techs are skilled and friendly, and you can enjoy a complimentary adult beverage during your appointment. Terrific!” – E. Rodgers
“The place was “hopping”, but I never felt overlooked or unattended to. When my turn came around, I certainly felt the personal touch your business has always provided me. Found a new addiction too, my first facial experience has left me yearning for more.” – D. Brask
“You guys are doing great. I called Friday afternoon in search for a manicurist for an urgent need of a pedicure due to a painful ingrown toenail. My manicurist was unavailable. I was hesitant to drive from Irvine to Laguna Niguel but your receptionist talked me into. She was right. 20 minutes. Not bad. I was seated right away and offered a beverage. Jack & Coke in a crystal short. Nice! The manicurist, I wish I knew her name, was amazing. She talked me through the service and help relieve my pain. The Jack & Coke helped. She did an awesome job! – F. Mejia
“I’m a repeat customer and always treated well, have a good experience.” – T. Gallagher
“Service is always prompt, excellent and friendly. BEST IN CLASS” – G. Powell
“You took really good care of my elderly father who has many foot and toenail issues. The staff was all very kind.” – R. Misiow
