There are many reasons why you may be looking for a new hair salon or hair stylist in San Diego. Perhaps you’re new to town and are in need of a haircut and color touchup. Maybe you’re tired of the DIY boxed hair dyes and are ready to let a professional colorist refresh your locks. Or maybe you had a bad experience at your most recent salon and are looking for another option. Whatever the reasons, here are our tips on how to find the best hair salon in San Diego:
Read reviews for salons nearby:
Do your research! One of the best ways to narrow down your search for a salon in San Diego is to look up reviews on Yelp, Google, and Facebook. Flirt Urban Salon in Downtown San Diego has 5 stars on Yelp and 130 reviews.
Browse social media:
Instagram is a fun and effective way to see a stylist’s actual work. Most salons have an Instagram handle or hashtag where you can see images of the salon, the stylists, and finished haircuts and hair color. Follow Flirt Urban Salon on Instagram at @flirturbansalon to see our latest work.
Find a salon that offers consultations:
A salon consultation is typically a 15-minute appointment that can be booked in advance. This is your chance to get to know the stylist’s services, techniques and prices. A consultation is also an opportunity to get to know the stylist’s personality.
Building caring relationships with each client is a priority for the hair stylists at Flirt Urban Salon. During your visit, we do our best to be good listeners (some call us “hairapists”) and many of our clients have turned into long-time friends. Contact us to schedule your free consultation.
Choose a stylist with extensive experience:
Our team of stylists and colorists at Flirt Urban Salon have extensive education in all things hair. In fact, owner and stylist Joy is an educator for The Business of Balayage, is a beauty coach for 901 Academy, is certified in Essentials and Advanced Balayage, and much more.

Find a salon that will give you the royal treatment:
At Flirt Urban Salon, we want your visit to feel like a relaxing, pampering experience with a close friend. When you step into our beautiful Downtown San Diego location, our friendly stylists will greet you with a smile and offer you a beverage (how about a glass of wine?). In our lobby, help yourself to treats from our candy jars and grab a copy of your favorite magazine.
Once you’re nestled into a comfy salon chair, your stylist will talk to you about your color goals, hair inspiration, and provide recommendations on how your hairstyle can showcase your best features. When it’s time to wash your hair, put your feet up and indulge in a relaxing neck and head massage. After your hair has been cut and/or colored, we’ll blow dry and style your hair and provide you with tips on how to care for your beautiful new look.
