Our Staff

Our staff is most definitely one of a kind. Allow me to walk you through and introduce you to each of our stylists and staff. Every business has its rock. The rock of Brighton Salon is the salon Director, Dani Faraj. Dani has been in the hair industry creating hair art for over 20 years. A third generation hair designer since the age of 12 in his fathers' salon in New York. Dani prides himself in exploding the boundaries of convention, and always approaches hair design with the sensitivity and creativity of a painter and a sculptor. A true artist.
Aside from his creativity, Dani is a mentor and friend to every person who comes through the doors of Brighton Salon. His heart as big as an ocean and his compassionate soul is so inviting and honest. He is the type of person who would give you the shirt off of his back if it meant even the smallest amount of happiness to another person. Also, his sense of humor is definitely one of a kind. After all, laughter is the best medicine, so to put it into perspective, no one at Brighton Salon ever feels..sick.
Second in line to Dani would be Brighton Salon's assistant manager and receptionist, Lori Kline. Beautiful and remarkably comical, her warm and inviting smile will greet you as you walk through the front doors of Brighton Salon. Lori has a very different type of personality as far as assistant managers go. She is extremely approachable in any type of situation, be it personal or a business matter, Lori always has the right words to say as well as the right approach on how to best solve any kind of issue. Her smile is contagious and her dedication is a key element to the turning gears in the salon.

Our stylists at Brighton Salon are very diverse in nature, backgrounds and techniques.

Romina Shoar

Born in Iran and internationally trained in many different haircutting techniques, Romina specializes in Men's haircuts, hair coloring, hair extensions and chemical straightening (particularly Cadivu). Allow me to paint a small portrait of Romina: dainty as can be with a cute feminine charm, Romina's character in the salon, as we like to joke, is the damsel in distress. We don't mean this literally, but simply that she is never afraid to ask for help when she needs it. A day in Brighton Salon without Romina is a dull day indeed. Her work speaks for itself as well as her coloring techniques.

Dustin Goodsell

Dustin, an Aveda graduate and California native, is the Brighton Salon assistant. In other words, Dustin is the legs of the salon.

Dustin will even gladly do mundane tasks from coffee runs to folding towels and even handy work around the salon.
