General Info:

 Located at the intersection of Style and Whimsy, Detour Salon has been a staple of the San Diego hair scene since 1998. A dedication to the craft of hair dressing, respect for our clientele, care for the environment and participation in the world we live in, have kept Detour top of mind for San Diego's style-savvy men and women.


Business History
In business since 1998 with the original location in coastal Encinitas, Detour Salon expanded to include a San Diego salon in the vibrant Hillcrest neighborhood in 2013. Our commitment to providing world class salon services for men and women in a relaxed and genuine environment has garnered us many accolades--including being named as Best Hair Salon for SIX years running by readers of Ranch & Coast magazine.

At Detour Salons, we take your look seriously offering the latest in men’s and women’s…

  • Couture hair cut and style
  • Dimensional haircolor & highlights
  • Semi-permanent haircolor
  • High-fashion blonding
  • Natural grey coverage
  • Straightening and smoothing
  • Keratin smoothing treatments
  • Contemporary upstyling
  • Extensions for volume, length or body

With exacting standards in service, we have chosen to partner with the best brands available to salons. We use and recommend

  • Bumble and Bumble hair care--the darling of fashion editors and backstage at fashion shows
  • Redken haircolor--fashion backed by science
  • OPI  nail laquers-though we don't offer nail services, nails are one of the first thing to get noticed. Take care of them.
  • Dadi'Oil and Lumos-award winning cuticle oil and top coat
  • Wet Brush-possibly the best innovation in brushes in 20 years to disassemble tangles gently
  • Consultations are always free
