Carlton Hair – Review & Discount!

I had the AMAZING privilege to participate in a review of Carlton Hair here in San Diego. I chose to go to the University Town Center location, but there are also two more locations in SD, in Del Mar and Fashion Valley, plus many many more throughout California!

When I called I obviously had not been there before, so no idea which stylist I would end up with. Lucky for me I had Ashley. I highly recommend her for any highlighting treatment.

When I came in to the salon, I was greeted immediately, asked who I was there to see and immediately asked if I would like something to drink. Superb service so far!

Ashley came out in a timely fashion and lead me to her station. The salon was modern and beautiful, clean and airy.

Next we discussed what exactly I wanted. This took some time being that I was not happy with the current color/highlight that I had in my hair. The problem was that it was ashy and was a thinner highlight so it looked almost gray in certain lights– I did not want to look gray! So we discussed for about 20 minutes, she brought me color samples and we finally decided that I wanted more blonde, but a more golden blonde than ashy. PERFECT!

Overall, the service took about two hours for the full highlights. She definitely took her time, which I appreciated.  She asked me about my current hair routine and products that I used and suggested some products to help with fine hair and buildup. The products were pricey at $25 a piece, but I trusted her opinion, and if it helps me go for longer without shampooing everyday, then it’s worth the cost!

When the highlights were revealed, they were beautiful!  Even golden blonde with a beautiful darker blonde as a low light. Even others in the salon commented on them! I felt 100% more beautiful than when I walked in. If a salon can do that, it’s definitely worth the second visit!
