Business Description

 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.
