Last year, we gave hairstylist Zarah Charm a Best Of for the way she weaves magic into the beautiful, intricately braided and twisted styles she creates. Since then, she’s expanded and now runs a whole salon, ZC Hair Loft, and that means customers have access to a one-stop-shop to get a greater variety of healthy-hair oriented styles (other talented stylists do work that Charm doesn’t, like children’s styles and box braids). Walking into the sunny yellow location, across from Tio Pepe, feels like walking into a conversation you’re more than welcome to join in on. And just like when Charm was working on her own, it’s still extremely easy to book an appointment and get in and out without losing your whole day waiting for your ‘do to be done.
