I had the Brazilian blowout some time around July. The stylist was really nice and I enjoyed the service. I felt really good after I left the salon. I even followed the stylist’s advice to use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner on the same day. However, about 2 days after I had it, my hair was absolutely back to being dry and frizzy. I was really hoping for it be smooth and shiny like what the stylist said but even my boyfriend told me it didn’t even seem like I got my hair treated. I tried to drop by after I went on vacation but the stylist wasn’t there so nobody could check my hair. The salon and your employees are great, unfortunately, the treatment just didn’t work for me. P.S. The stylist was Sharon (?) but I don’t see her on your website.

Overall this is a beautiful, clean salon with extremely friendly and helpful service. Nancy, who has done my waxing and eyebrow threading a few times, is just wonderful. She is professional and really knows what she’s doing! I would not go anywhere else!!

I came to Salon 5th to see Nancy for a wax. Now I go to her for a wax (pretty much full body), eye brows and facial! She’s the best. She is super sweet, very clean and extremely knowledgeable about how to take of your skin. I’ve recommend her to all of my friends!

I love Lindsay!! I used to get haircuts from her when she was based in Florida. And if I weren’t a broke college student I would travel to San Diego just to have her cut my hair all over again. My mom and I both used to go to her. I have been with Lindsay for 5 years or more and have never felt so comfortable and trusting of the person cutting my hair. Personally, she would ask if we were doing and I would even let her decide if she felt like they would be good or not. She 110% knows what she is doing! She does an incredible job cutting and styling! Hoping within the next year I can make my way across the country to see her!

My hair and I are so grateful for Santiago’s amazing skills and beautiful soul! Thank you for all the laughs while transforming my look and increasing my confidence! I left the salon feeling full of life and extremely happy with my hair! Santiago is the best!

Came here for Nancy. Followed her here from Beauty be dolly. Shes amazing. Im happy she moved, prices are better and the place is so much more nicer and chill. They also have a refreshment station. She waxes men and woman and also does facials. This place is legit

I’ve been seeing Rachel M. for my hair for 9 years now. I can tell you that she does the best haircuts and is honest about color change and the processes involved. Rachel and the other staff at Salon 5th Ave. have become like a family to me. I can just walk in and people remember me; ask if I would like something to eat, or drink. The staff at Salon 5th Ave. also always collaborate and give feedback to one another. Getting my hair done by Rachel is always worry free, and that’s the best feeling! I can just walk in and know she will not do a bad job and I’ll walk away happy every time. My hair remains healthy, long, and friends always complement me on my hair. Rachel has the knowledge and honesty all hairstyles should have and all clients should look for.

Went to see Santiago for the first time for a basic trim and came out with a fantastic style. Had numerous people compliment my hair. Thanks Santiago I’ll be back

Just had my hair cut and colored by Ally. It was my first time seeing her. I come here to get waxed by nancy and thought I would give the salon a try. I’m very impressed with my highlight and cut!! Best hair experience I’ve had in years. Price was totally reasonable as well. I’ll be back and referring friends as well. Thank you Ally!!

Came in for a haircut yesterday and had a great experience. The location is great * walking distance from my house. The guy at the front desk is awesome, fun, and very friendly- which made me feel relaxed as I’ve had some troubling haircuts in the past. I had an appointment with Aly. She was nice and listened as I told her what I did and did not want, my concern, and what I thought would be good. She was honest about her opinion on my hair and began to cut. She was very quiet and although it’s nice to chat w your hair dresser, I found it to be refreshing that she was concentrated on what she was doing. She dried my hair and although she suggested I use a heat treatment and a mask, she never offered or tried selling me products which was nice. I love my hair, it’s exactly what I asked for- and I appreciated her quiet, and honest approach. I’ll definitely be back.

Rachel rules..! Super cool, super good vibes..!! I see her once a month for a men’s haircut. I always feel treasured and special. I have had numerous stylists over the years and Rachel McDaniel is by far the best men’s stylist/Barber I have ever used and I highly recommend her. She is great at fades and tapers and knows her job with working the clippers!

Don’t know how to start ALY is the one , great talent , she’s an artist not only a hairstylist, I know my hair type is so difficult to deal with and she knew how to deal with it and picked the perfect color , everything was so relaxing , blow dryer was great , high end products …. definitely will back again… you can check her Instagram for more pix and her work ( aly.hairdresser )
Thanks Aly

Darius worked his magic again. Fantastic Service
Really impressed by the high quality customer service and my fantastic cut and color at Salon 5th ave. Everyone was so welcoming and caring and the color was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Darius and the rest of the team, definitely will be back in 2 weeks for my touch up.

April 20, 2017

Darius does an uuuhmaaazziiing job on my hair, he is a magician, he took me from fire truck red to blonde ok without any damage, he and ALL of the stylists at salon fifth avenue are very very talented, you are in good hands no matter who you choose.

I have to say, what a great experience! I just moved to San Diego not too long ago and dreaded finding a new hair stylist! Santiago made me feel very comfortable and made sure we were on the same page with end results (I got color and a Major cut!) he even stayed on the safe side with cut and color and let me know I could come back within 10 days if I wasn’t happy to get more, so that it wouldn’t be so drastic for me! He’s very sweet and professional!
The salon is full of natural light, great music and a super convenient location. I’ve seen a lot of other reviews complain about parking, but I was able to park right in front of the salon! The staff that work there are so friendly and kind. My meter kept running out(I had a lengthy appt) and they so kindly ran out to feed the meter for me. I was given coffee and water while there, which was also nice! Highly recommended!

I love this salon. I’ve been seeing Darius for cuts and color for a couple years. The haircuts always look good, even after it starts growing out. He also has an amazing talent with color. I don’t know how he does it, but the color still looks good even after three months.

Everyone at the salon goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Someone always offers me coffee and once even picked me up lunch during a particularly long appointment.

I cannot recommend this place enough.

I found Salon 5th Ave through Groupon. From the moment I walked in the door I was blown away. It’s a very bright and fun atmosphere. Darius made my hair look amazing! I just went in for a haircut and he made me look like a super model. He is so talented and I’m excited to go back.

Came here to see Nancy for brows, Brazilian wax and a lash lift. Nancy is so amazing and makes sure that you are comfortable! She is very clean and also explains the importance of skincare.

I am a very fuzzy person. I have big bushy brows and Nancy is the only person I trust. My eyebrows are very difficult to work with (ones bushier than the other); if nancy can do wonders with my brows she can do anyone’s brows!

As for Brazilians shes got the best price in town ($35-$40) and she uses great quality equipment! She was so clean and made sure she took care of my skin since I’m literally ripping my hair off lol she used natural ingredients like grape seed oil and aloe vera to help my skin after the wax. She made me feel super comfortable and is the only person I trust down there! (Haha)

I also got my first lash lift ever with her. She explained the process and made sure it was a relaxing experience. I was blown away at how good my lashes turned out!

Her room and the salon looks so great! I love the giant mirrors and the marble like floor. Parking can be tricky but I’ve found it in less than 10 mins so come a little early and you my be able to get a spot right in front. 🙂

Make up is art. Beuty is spirit.

Came in with a hair disaster & my hairstylist Nieves quickly fixed that with an ashy blonde ombré. Definitely coming back for a touch up I recommend her 100% no doubt it! She's not only super sweet, but she really put time & effort to create the look I wanted 🙂


Just have fun. Smile. And keep putting on lipstick

needed a new look. Went to Salon 5th Avenue and had Darius work his magic. He colored my hair a beautiful deep red, gave me a much more flattering haircut, and a Brazilian blowout. I went a few days but wanted a little more weight taken off, Darius gave me a more layers and thinned my hair perfectly without charging (or making me feel awkward for asking for more of a cut). The whole staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. I love this place, love Darius and his work, and will recommend Salon 5th Avenue to everyone!
