This is (in my opinion) the best salon in North County – and I’ve tried quite a few. I moved out here from Arizona, where I had a great salon for a low price. I salon-hopped, trying to find a good deal for a good haircut throughout Vista, Carlsbad, and Oceanside. Well – I found out I wasn’t going to get a good haircut for the price I paid in AZ, so I sucked it up and decided to pay more. TOTALLY WORTH IT. Every cent. I’ve been to Mai consistently, and she is super friendly and my hair always looks wonderful after a visit there. I’ve found that my haircuts also last longer in between visits because of the way she does my layers. The $10 bang trims are also great just to drop by between cuts as well. I dread when I will eventually move again and have to find a new salon!
