About Us

Claudine’s Hair Salon – About Us (okay, about me, really)

Claudine’s Salon opened on June 21, 2002. This was the fulfillment of a dream to work in and provide a salon environment of excitement, comfort and fun, while keeping up with the latest and greatest in technique and technology.

While owning and running a large salon was great for awhile, I believe that you’ll thoroughly enjoy the intimacy and coziness of my private and quiet one person salon, where I provide excellent service designed to exceed your greatest expectations.

Your time here should be as pleasant as possible, and taking your input to heart as to what you want in a salon resulted in an ambiance of privacy, punctuality, pleasant background music, quality beverage choices, not having children present, and, obviously, providing great hairstyling.

So far, so good.

You’ll be pleased to find the focus in the salon exclusively on hair services, ensuring professionalism and expertise.  To stay up to date and capable of handling new styles, trends, products and techniques, I regularly attend classes and specialized training.

About Claudine DeCarlisle

Claudine DeCarlisle

Claudine DeCarlisle

I’ve done hair and make-up professionally for more than twenty-four years. I’ve actually been doing hair and make-up since I was nine, but then only for Barbies, myself and my sister. I’ve learned a lot since then, working in several salons in the Tri-Valley area, as well as being a salon owner.

I’ve had fun styling hair, wigs and doing make-up for various local operatic and theatrical productions, as well as films, shows, and magazines.

Due to a mad drive to improve my skills, I stay current through further education, which I highly value as I was an Educator for a major product company, teaching hair cutting techniques to stylists.

A Livermore resident for more than thirty years now, I’m happy to start each day working in my own little space, knowing that I’ll see long time clients who have become friends, and getting to experience the joy of sending people off to a job interview, an acting audition, a reunion, a wedding, or even just home for the afternoon, assured that they love their appearance and that this contributes to their confidence and overall sense of well-being. There is a lot of instant gratification in this career. There’s also a lot of creativity, excitement, fun, and intimacy. I feel honored to be trusted with people’s appearance, and I believe that it shows in the care, time, and attention I give to my clients.

Thanks for your interest,


Serving Livermore and the surrounding Tri-Valley area
