EVERY person leaves empowered.
The Problem
THE CHARLEE strives to be the solution to a common problem in the salon industry. We frequently hear from clients that they’re rarely satisfied with the results of both hair color and cut services completed by one technician, usually loving how one service turns out but less than thrilled with the other. This is because there is so much to learn and practice to become proficient in with each speciality.
The Solution
Technicians at THE CHARLEE are passionate about hair and each have their area of expertise. With specialized technicians, you experience someone who is a master of their craft, devoted to ongoing education and top techniques. We listen to your hair type, needs and desires and match you with the right expert for you.

The Service
We want you to love your hair and for that to hold true, you need knowledge of how to handle your hair at home. At THE CHARLEE, client education is a top priority. Our goal is that every person leaves empowered to replicate their customized style at home with confidence. We believe that by pairing consistent results with unparalleled service our clients will have an experience only THE CHARLEE team can offer.
The Space
THE CHARLEE is located on the 300 block of East Orange Street in the Historic District, a wonderful neighborhood with less than a ten minute walk to Penn Square in the center of town. The newly renovated building was vacant and condemned for many years- we are overjoyed to turn it into a new business in the incredible, flourishing little city of Lancaster.
