Some comments from our Clients
Don’t take our words for it – here’s an assortment of reviews we’ve received from our clients.
I found Studio 78 Salon through Yelp reviews and I have been very pleased. First and foremost, my recommended stylist Elena is very talented. She knows exactly how to cut and style any hair type. Since my hair is challenged, it really takes an experienced stylist to give me a cut that I can work with. She also listens to your requests and communicates what will work best. I was also able to get a beautiful golden blond balayage on my roots. In addition, the ambiance in the salon is great, the location has shopping nearby, the refreshments are wonderful and let's not forget about the marvelous head massage! Thanks again Elena.
Very Pleased,Debbie R.
I immediately loved the look of this salon, and it's friendly, laid-back, unpretentious, but upscale atmosphere. I feel welcomed instantly with warm smiles and utmost professionalism. I work with Brianna, the owner of the salon, who also happens to be amazing. When I arrived last week, Brianna and I chatted about her vision for my hair. She recently placed 3rd in the entire country in Sebastian's Whats Next Awards and just got back from doing the live show in Miami. I wanted to hear what she thought what was next for me since she's been deemed the benchmark to follow in her industry. Being in the fashion industry, I need to stay ahead of what's next to stay relevant. Brianna's experience, continued education, and training never disappoints me. She always makes each appointment a total experience. Not only is she one of the best colorist, but her cut is on point. The conversations with her always flow naturally, never awkward. I genuinely love having that time in the chair just chatting and unwinding without judgement. The complimentary beverages and massage chairs in the shampoo room is an added bonus. What I love most about her is she customizes your experience tailored specifically for your needs. If I am pressed for time, she works efficiently. If it's a relaxing day, I get a few more extra minutes of a head massage. Either way, the end result is always fabulous. She brings her vision to life and to say she is talented and gifted is an understatement. If you are looking for a trend right new hair style or just to have some fun with cut or color, this is your place. Brianna will always keep you feeling relevant and beautiful!
Friendly, Laid-back, Unpretentious, but Upscale Atmosphere,Michelle W.
This salon has 5 stars from me and a customer for life! I am using Yelp more & more to find places I can trust, and this situation was no different- I was not disappointed!! I had been contemplating a pixie cut, but was really nervous because I do have an Oval face with a little extra chin to love, I have somewhat curly hair and I've not had my hair that short since a horrible hair experience 29 years ago (which included name calling and taunting saying I looked like a boy) I called around to some of the highly starred salons near me and no one had any openings for same day, walk-ins for the time frame I needed- and as a busy mom of 4, believe me- you have to take advantage of free time when you can! I called Studio 78 and was greeted kindly and professionally, they found an opening for just 2 hrs later, so I took it! Now maybe for some, 50$ is chump change, but I do struggle with spending that on a haircut!! However, I had not had a haircut in over a year and needed one!! So I was hopeful as well as nervous that it would turn out good! I arrived and was told it would be just a bit- so I waited while sipping my cold water in the nice waiting area & then was told that there had been an overbooking for my lady but that they would work it out- Long story short- the owner Brianna took me on and was awesome!! One of the intern cosmetologists, who I feel bad about forgetting her name, washed my hair & chatted with me while Brianna finished up with another client- she was great! I wasn't sure about the super shortness of a pixie to start with so Brianna took it in stages and we ended up going all the way short and I love it! It's really great! I also didn't get charged the rate I would have for when Brianna cuts it since she's a master, but they gave me the amount first quoted on my phone call- without me even asking! As another reviewer mentioned- I was very relieved to not be "up-sold" on product! I actually asked what kind of product Brianna would recommend for my new style- and she said "honestly, I'd just use hairspray, you don't want to get too much stuff in it to weigh it down". SERIOUSLY! She didn't even give a name brand! Ending with this: Go to Studio 78- You won't regret it- and if there is a problem- they are more than willing and able to fix it! Hey, if you're not picky or don't appreciate attention to detail, go next door to super cuts- I'm sure they have openings!
You won’t regret it!,Jen B.
The first place I went gave me really really really really really really really really really really bad hair. Red with ash green highlights. Thank goodness I found Studio 78!
Thank Goodness for Studio 78,Heather T.
Briana has being doing my daughter and my hair for about 8+ years, the whole experience from the time you walk in the door to leaving is excellent. The salon is very clean, visually pleasing, the staff is friendly and professional. Every service cut and color I know is being done by a skilled stylist who is up on all the latest trends. My hair always looks great, and I get lots of compliments. This is not a Super Cuts this a real Salon like you would find in LA.
This is a real salon,Debbie Y.
What an amazing place. Laura did an excellent job.
Amazing Place,Anita A.
LOVE this place! Always a joy to walk in and be treated like a queen! Everyone is pleasant and fun and full of energy and GREAT hair ideas. 🙂
LOVE This Place!,Heidi H.
As usual, I received excellent customer service. I was disappointed to hear that my usual stylist is no longer at Studio 78, but I was helped by Laura N. and she was great also. I left Studio 78 a very happy customer again.
Very Happy Customer,Lizzete F.
This was my 4th appointment with Elena and as usual, she was amazing! I'm always amazed with the results. The environment is so inviting and all the hairdressers are so friendly.
Inviting & Friendly,Kathryn H.
This place is my go to spot now! I transformed my long locks into a super cute, punk pixie cut and I LOVE it. Shena is who did the cut and she was not only talented but so genuine and personable - which is hard to come by at higher end salons. The pricing is super fair for such a luxurious place. They have everything too! Color, styling, cutting, ect. The chairs at the wash station massage and the ambiance is just fantastic and relaxing. I love the complimentary drinks (wine too!) - it's a nice touch. I'll be going here at LEAST once a month now for my pixie trims. Thanks Studio 78!
Go-To Spot,Julia K.
I brought my daughter here for a cut as a walk - in. An appointment was available immediately and the stylist was kind and professional.
We walked out with a very happy little girl with a super cute cut!
Very Happy Little Girl,Claire H.
Absolutely great! Clean environment and friendly staff!
Absolutely Great,Janelle H.
I have seen several different stylists and always had a good experience. the atmosphere is relaxing -especially the hair washing station, and the staff all have a cheerful attitude. Claudia up front is always very helpful and has arranged last minute appointments for me and my son. thank you!
I was there for HOURS due to the process it took to color my hair..... but those hours were comfortable and a great experience. All the staff members are so welcoming and kind. You're not just getting your hair done....you're at a high end Salon where you feel like a star.
Great Experience,Lisset, E.
Awesome! Brianna - you are super! Love my new "do"! The salon is very chic - and your "client care" is unmatched! Keep up the good work !
Fantastic!! Studio 78 always gives the best advice for cut, color and product.I'm a customer for life
Customer for Life,Lindsey B.
Cassie is always good at "reading my mind". More like it, she sees my problem areas or regrowth that needs corrected without me telling her what I think I need. My hair has natural curl with lots of stubborn waves that want to do their own thing. Cassie always tames them and makes them do what she wants the hair to do. I always leave the salon feeling so much lighter, comfortable, and well-groomed.
Lighter, Comfortable, & Well-Groomed!,Lynda R.
I decided to go really short with my hair longer on the top. You never know how it's going to come out, but Brianna can perform miracles. It's a new look for me and I just love it! I love to experiment with different styles and colors and Brianna goes above and beyond my expectations!
Brianna Can Perform Miracles!,Debbie H.
The experience was very personable. She listened to me and gave me the exact hair cut I wanted. I felt very comfortable in her hands and actually fell asleep for a couple minutes. Most enjoyable and I will be using Studio 78 again.
Very Personable,Rhonda H.
Laura is a hair goddess. Nicest salon in all of San Diego. Wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair. 🙂 beautiful job every single time. Thank you Laura!!!
Nicest Salon in SD!,Samantha D.
Elena was the best! She clearly knows exactly what she is doing. I got a Brazilian Blowout and she instructed step by step on the procedure. She knew her chemistry also. She was a blast to be with her personality was wonderful lots of laughs. Totally recommend her to anyone!
Lots of Laughs,Carolina G.
Laura - you're awesome. I'm so happy to have found you. Thank you!
Laura is super experienced and diligent. She knew exactly how to deal with my hair type and she was very helpful at putting me at ease as to procedure and length of time it would last (straightening product).
Experienced & Diligent,Marilyn B.
I knew I wanted a change and talked to Brianna about coloring my hair. I let her take the lead with what's best for me and my lifestyle. I LOVE IT!!!!
I always feel renewed when I have my hair cut and styled. I love the attention and the head message. Thank you for the way you make me look and feel.
Elena was great! Super friendly and easy to talk to. We talked about what cut I wanted and she executed it perfectly, I'll definitely be going back to her. The shampooing process was also very relaxing, which is always a great bonus.
Super Fan,Dylan D.
As always, I received excellent and professional treatment at Studio 78. I HIGHLY recommend this full service salon.
Highly Recommend,Doreen S.
As usual, I received excellent customer service. I was dissapointed to hear that my usual stylist is no longer at Studio 78, but I was helped by Laura N. and she was great also. I left Studio 78 a very happy customer again
Happy Customer,Lizette F.
I love you to death, Brianna! You totally know how to rock my hair! As much as we change colors, I think this time you really outdid yourself. The purple roots and blond tips looks fabulous! I can't thank you enough.
Rockin Hair,Debbie H.
Had a great experience getting my hair done at this salon. It was nice and clean and the service was excellent. Shena was my stylist and she is awesome! I absolutely love the way she colored and cut my hair, it's exactly what I wanted! I also liked that she took the time to talk to me about what I wanted and what I should expect, very professional. I will definitely recommend Shena to all my friends.
Exactly What I Wanted,Maria F.
They always take good care of my teenage daughter. She has really thick hair and damaged hair because of sports activities. Her hair always looks beautiful and she loves everything about the service from the shampoo to the gorgeous hair styling.
This is my 4th time having Cassie trim and style my hair. I am a senior with white, naturally curly, thinning hair. Cassie has great skill and understanding in what style works best for my hair. Not like other experiences at other salons, I always walk out after Cassie has taken care of me feeling like I have been to a beauty salon. I feel a lot better, lighter and more confident in how I look.
More Confident,Linda R.
I'm very picky and have had dozens of hairstylists and colorists over the years, but Brianna is a keeper. She started doing my hair many years ago and it was exciting to see her go from being a stylist at someone else's salon to building Studio 78, which, due to her efforts has become an industry leader in North County.
Loyal Client,Robyn G.
Absolutely love this place. I went first in early 2014 and they did a fabulous job that made me so happy. I went back again today, and couldn't be more satisfied with my experience! My haircut stylist Elena listened so well and was open to all ideas! As we went through the process she made sure she was doing everything right and to my satisfaction. I kept adding on to what I wanted and she was more than happy to do it. I could tell she really loves her job as well as all the other people there. With a great price of $50 plus tip this place can't be beat for friendly customer service and a wonderful end product!
Happy Client!,Amber R.
Decided to go here after striking out at a SportClip, man was I happy I did. Staff was great, Stylist was really good. She figured out how I liked my hair then talked to me about it to make 100% sure before she put scissors to hair. Guys spend the extra $10 and get a great haircut that will look good for the next month instead of going somewhere cheap (SportClips, SuperCuts, Fantastic Sams).
SportClip Strike Out!,Tim G.
Elena was my hair stylist and she was fantastic. I told her I wanted blue hair with my tips light blue and she gave it to me! It was pretty pricey so I wouldn't go if you're on a budget, but if you want your hair done right then this is the place to go. She was also very kind and patient with me in finding out what I wanted exactly. She walked me through each step which I'm glad she did. Overall it was excellent service. Not to mention all the complements I've been getting on my hair!
Elena Fan,Tyler D.
Wow!!! Great service and very talented!!! My hair was a disaster from another salon!!! I was fortunate enough to have Shena make the necessary corrections to my hair!!! She gave me what I wanted. I asked for balayage from dark brown to blonde. She was very helpful, sweet, and extremely knowledgeable! Thank you!!!!
Loving the new blond,Jackie A.
Cassie does wonders! Like my little pony friendship is magic kind of wonders. #hairgametoostronginthatone Reasons why she's amazeballs: Hair cut - I got a trim and I'm trying to grow my hair out longer so I asked for a super blunt trim to get rid of splitsville and I also asked for whimsical Eva longoria classic bangs. Nut shell she nailed it Full highlights - my hair has been dyed blonde since Ken and Barbie decided to be a couple again so I decided I needed a change of pace and have been getting lowlights at different salons for the past few months. All of the salons I've been to have been mehhh bc of one thing or another. Freaking Cassie and her magic hands put those bad boy lowlights in and she blended it seamlessly. Like there is no skunky fug chunks and I don't look like a zebra. It's blended oh so naturally with shine that screams I've been in a Pantene commercial. So nut shell it's so good that Im pretty much going to claim I'm a natural bronde Asian. It can happen
