Join the Team, and Let's Have Fun!

As we like to say at Escape Hair Salon, “We’re upscale, but not uptight.” We’re an employee-based salon that offers a no drama team atmosphere, competitive compensation, education, benefits, and much more. If you like the sound of that, then apply today at Online Employment Application. If not, no worries, but be sure to follow us on Instagram @escapehairsalondotcom to see how much fun we’re having making SoCal more beautiful, one client at-a-time.

Unlike salons owned by non-residents and non-stylists, Joelle, the owner of Escape Hair Salon lives in downtown San Diego and is a 35-year veteran stylist who has your back. She has owned and operated salons for the past 15-years. So, it’s not her first rodeo.

A lot of salons talk about education but rarely bring fulfill on that promise. We have education all the time for which you are paid to attend. Our current team of hairstylists are incredibly creative, talented, and value education. Several of them are educators for or have deep experience in various product lines or have been educated by Vidal Sassoon stylists. We work as a team formulating colors, working with new color and product lines, answering the telephone, scheduling online appointments, sweeping, and shampooing for each other because the best way to succeed personally and professionally is to help one another be successful.

Also, we carry only the best professional-grade haircare products (Alfaparf Milano, Escape Beautifiers, and Kevin Murphy) for you to educate our clients. If you’re familiar with these products, great, you’re one step closer to scheduling an interview.

We look forward to receiving your Online Employment Application. After which, we’ll reach out to schedule an initial telephone interview. If you have any further questions regarding a hairstylist or receptionist role, please Contact Us or call the salon at 1(619) 231-2442 and ask to speak with either Allyson or Joelle.
