Absolutely wonderful salon! The high quality of the staff and salon radiates throughout.
Previously I had been to two other very "high rated" salons in San Diego and the experience was terrible. Whether is was the end result of the hair or simply the rude cliquey staff. I had a true 180 degree experience at this salon from my very first interaction with Liz. I found Liz via Instagram after searching for a blonde specialist is San Diego. She was so nice even in those initial IG exchanges that it was such a relief. When I finally met her in person for our consultation and then later for my appointment, her same personality shined through! If you've seen photos of her work you know it speaks for itself, but beyond her talent is that when you leave you'll likely get a hug, not handshake, and leave feeling like you've made a friend! :) (Can you say rare salon experience circa 2019??)
From the moment you walk in a member of the staff is there to greet you and make you feel comfortable. I could tell instantly who the owner was (Larry) by how he carried himself and was making sure each person in the salon was being taken of even if that meant checking in a client if the receptionist had stepped away (alleviating that awkward "what do I do with my hands" moment when you walk into a new salon).
They have a space for your jacket, belongings, etc. and offer an assortment of beverages. I got hot tea, which they offered with sugar and even offered to reheat throughout the appointment! (Heart eyes). Now THAT level of service paired with their stylists' talent is what makes you an (extremely well deserving) top salon in San Diego!
Before and after posted on Yelp. Looking forward to my next appointment and I will continue to post photos of my hair journey.
