Our Story

The original concept of a “salon” referred to a social gathering of people and first came to prominence during the renaissance in Italy and France, while the term “Salotto” is an Italian word that refers to a lounge or parlor. Founded in 2005, Salotto Salon has incorporated these historical definitions and combined them with a passion for innovative, modern hairstyling techniques to create the perfect salon environment. Surrounded by Eucalyptus trees, the serene, Mediterranean-like atmosphere of Rancho Bernardo provides the perfect, tranquil backdrop for our artists to work their magic. As a family-owned company, we take pride in our ability to offer the perfect, personalized hair care experience to anyone who walks through our doors. We offer the same level of intimate care today as we did when we opened and will continue to do so for years to come. However, we are more than just a smiling face and a convenient location – we are also a world-class hair salon! Our in-house stylists offer a wide array of hair design services ranging from simple (but gorgeous) haircuts to specialized Ouidad styling.
