Brian may be the best

Brian may be the best stylist I have ever used. I love my hair cut and the color is fantastic. What a difference, I look years younger. And that's not easy when you are in your 60's/ Shh don't tell. Thanks Brian.



Amazing personality and consistently spot on styling

The stylists at Detour are amazing. Whether it was Brian, Rain, or Dulce, I've always been pleased with the result. Which means even in a pinch, I am confident that i can get a great hairstyle. That's important to me because my schedule is totally unpredictable. Jarrod and Kirk, the owners, always introduce themselves when I arrive and make me feel welcome. This is a great salon and retail shop, too. If I'm looking for a little something to give my wife, Detour is always on my list to shop.



Just Perfect. Great Salon

This salon is special. I love the exceptionally friendly staff. They are always smiling and looking out for one another. I have loved my hair each visit and Bumble and Bumble is the best for my hair. Fair pricing and worth the drive from La Jolla. Kirk and Jennifer are the two I saw, but I would recommend anyone.

Also, they are community minded and involved in many events. This is something important to me.

Pros and Cons

I was able to get a haircut appointment at the last minute with Kyme (pronounced Kim). I found her to be very friendly. I showed her a picture of the hair style I wanted and she asked all the right I style my hair, do I want it to be even on both sides, how long do I want my bangs, etc. I appreciated her wanting to clarify what I wanted.

The appointment went fine until I got out to my hair car and noticed that the left side of my hair was longer than the right side. Nothing, and I mean nothing, makes me more angry when this happens. I went back into the salon and told the receptionist about it, and Kyme immediately came out and touched it up and apologized while doing so.

Beware--the salon charges $10.00 (yes, you read that correctly), $10.00 for flat ironing your hair. I didn't know that until the receptionist told me to pay $66 instead of $56.

Cool salon. If you want a technically perfect haircut, ask for Jeff.
