Taking it Personal

Jet Rhys in Solana Beach, CA, caters to the individual, from first-class service to bespoke style.

I love to evolve the look of my clients’ hair,” Jet says. “It starts with creating the perfect healthy hair canvas for color to come.”

What’s Unique

Jet Rhys takes customer service a step further than simply offering time-crunched clients a beverage. “We always ask our clients if they would like to order something to eat,” Jet says. The salon provides menus from local restaurants, calls in the orders and picks them up. “We believe in 100 percent first-class service for our guests,” Jet says.

Inside Story

The tagline “Looks are everything” easily sums up the focus at Jet Rhys’ flagship location in Solana Beach, CA, a 2,800-square-foot open, industrial space featuring lots of black with magenta accents. With an impressive résumé that includes creating the beauty looks for major national TV and print ads as well as educating fellow stylists around the globe, Jet and Rhys founded Jet Rhys salons in 1992. Each member of the salon’s team is personally trained by the talented duo, and ongoing education ensures that skills are kept up-to-date. Jet’s “Color Ribbons,” involves randomly lightening medium sections of hair for an “artistic flair.” Jet says the team’s ability to individualize current trends to suite each client’s needs is what sets the salon apart. “We strive to look beyond bone structure and skin tone to find each client’s true persona and create the perfect hairstyle,” she says.
