Essence Salon and Spa
It's rare that I feel a sense of relaxation as I walk into a busy salon - they can often be overwhelming or messy - but that's exactly what happened as I walked into Essence Salon and Spa in Clairemont. With bright natural lighting and beautiful decor, Essence makes you feel instantly welcome. Essence was started over 30 years ago in La Jolla, and moved to their Clairemont location about 6 years ago, which offers better parking and easier accessibility. All of the stylists are very experienced and knowledgeable, some of them having worked with the some of the same clients for the past 40 years. Offering a full range of services from updos to extensions, and keratin straightening to color, this is the place to come for any of your hair styling needs. In addition to the hair styling pros, Essence also has two aestheticians and a manicurist. Everyone is very committed to continuing education, and Essence hosts classes taught by L'Oreal to update stylists on the latest techniques and trends, ensuring that whoever does your hair will be up-to-date on the latest trends and products. In addition to the services offered at Essence, they also have an extensive selection of hair care products, including Bumble & Bumble and L'Oreal. The friendly and knowledgeable stylists are happy to explain the benefits of any of the products offered so you can continue to take care of your hair at home. The many loyal customers with years of patronage are a testament to the quality and character of the stylists. If you have any hair or beauty needs, be sure to stop by Essence and experience them for yourself.
