COVID-19 Response: Learn more
While the CDC, State of California, County of San Diego and California Board of Cosmetology have all made adjustments to how businesses like our own can continue to conduct business, Salotto Salon has taken into account the lifting of most of these restrictions and will opt to maintain some of our added precautions with the mindfulness that safety is still an ongoing concern.
As our guest we are now relying upon your individual beliefs and own sense of security to dictate whether you will wear a mask within our salon. Masks will not be mandated for guests. While temperature checks and hand washing will no longer be required upon entry, Salotto staff will continue to wear masks for everyone's added safety until further notice. The dividers within our shampoo area will remain in place to allow for a sense of privacy and added relaxation and the sanitization of chairs and surfaces will remain a part of our clean up routine after each client Our "ready bags", complete with cleaned and sanitized tools and drapes, have become a staple within Salotto and we will indefinitely continue this personalized and sanitary practice.
We cannot thank you enough for your many words of encouragement and appreciation for how our salon has chosen to move forward with the various adaptations for everyone’s safety and comfort. We will continue to keep our fingers on the pulse to ensure we are doing all that we can to keep our community safe, comfortable and continue blowing minds….. hair….. and perceptions!
On March 18, we made a voluntary decision to close our doors. With a contraction of Covid-19 reported in a neighboring community, it was evident that a difficult decision had to be made in order to maintain the health and safety of our patrons and staff. Days later, the statewide “shelter in place” order was put into effect. While we began by taking the mandatory closure as a moment to allow quality time with our families, we also knew there was work to be done and we were diligent about staying on top of the updates regarding how our business would be best positioned with health and safety standards necessary for the times, in addition to those that our industry of beauty already knew so well.
During our Covid journey of re-opening, closing again, opening outside and now being reclassified as a profession that has proven to be trusted during this pandemic, Salotto Salon has been on the forefront of advocacy, change and the ultimate professionalism. We have reinvented our health and safety protocols and each service in our salon is equipped with pre-made bags complete with disinfected tools, laundered capes and drapes designated for each client’s service needs. Our stations and shampoo chairs are separated by plexi dividers and the surfaces within our salon are consistently disinfected after each point of contact.
Our team consists of two wonderful salon assistants who afford our stylists much needed time to dedicate to their clients without jeopardizing time for sanitation practices. During the week we have implemented an hourlong siesta as an opportunity for our stylists to leave the salon for a mask-less breath and for our assistants to catch up on cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting. Overall, you can rest assured that your health and safety is a top priory at Salotto.
All staff has received Barbicide and Covid -19 sanitation certificates, reinforcing our basic sanitation protocols and the additional protocols suited for the current circumstances.
Our waiting area has been removed. Clients will check in for appointments from the Parking Lot on our new app, Pocket Salon, within 10 minutes prior to your appointment time. If Pocket Salon is not available to you, please call the salon at (858) 592-9362. You will be notified when your chair is sanitized and ready to begin your appointment. Please limit the amount of items you bring into the salon.
Your temperature will be checked upon entering and you will be escorted directly to the bathroom to wash your hands. Sadly, we will be refraining from handshakes or hugs. Masks will be required at all times in the salon and will be available for purchase, as needed.
Each room has a Rabbit Air Filter (always has), hand sanitizers will be on each station and throughout the salon. Stylists sanitize all affected areas as your services commence, as well as in between appointments. A deep and thorough sanitation of the Salon will happen during our Siesta, as mentioned above.
Magazines have been removed and our beverage options will not be available for the time being. Please feel free to bring a sealed beverage container of choice. Snacks can be eaten outside our outdoor range area.
No guests will be allowed in the salon without a scheduled appointment. We realize your children may be at home and day care options are limited. While we are sympathetic to each of your situations, we will no longer be permitting children to accompany you in our salon until further notice. Thank you for your understanding!

Please bring exact change if you intend to tip your stylist with the green stuff.
Lauren is so amazing, I showed her a picture of my hair and told her what I was looking in doing with the overall balayage and root coverage, and she delivered. I absolutely love my hair, she took the time and made sure that I loved my hair. Would 100% refer fiends and family to Lauren. Thank you so much to Lauren for bringing my hair back to life, and giving me the perfect sun kissed hair. I Highly recommend her.
I am always very satisfied with the work of the professionals at Salotto Saloon.
The salon is super cute and Lauren was great!
Shalay is the best. She always listens to what I want, and advises me if that would look good on me or if it's possible. She doesn't try to oversell anything and does an amazing job on my hair. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
I like everything about Salotto Salon! A charming ambiance, a super talented staff who are always upbeat and friendly.
