Charles W. Thomas is the inspiration of Lindsay Glaser, who has over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry. Lindsay named the salon after the most cherished people in her life — her three young sons. Lindsay started her career at Toni & Guy training under international artistic director James Morison. She later worked with the late David Oliver here on Sacramento Street. After refining her skills under these distinguished mentors, she went to work for herself. Lindsay eventually moved on to partner in Drybar, opening one of its first franchises located on Fillmore Street.

Lindsay is thrilled to come full circle back to Sacramento Street to share her passion and welcome you into Charles W. Thomas Salon.
