Deva Master Stylist Ian Skolnik - new location in Solana Beach!

Phyllis|April 4, 2021

Service Received: DevaCurl Transformation, Pintura Highlighting, DevaCut

A little over five years ago, my husband and I relocated to San Diego from Los Angeles. At first, we both drove 2+ hours each way to appointments with our respective curly hair stylists in L.A. Shortly thereafter, my husband’s stylist retired, so I offered to search for a local curly hair specialist for him. (I did have an ulterior motive, as I wanted to have someone to go to in the event that my wonderful hairstylist/friend retired as well.) During my online search, I was very impressed by the information on Ian’s website as well as the glowing five star Yelp reviews of his work as well as his background and dedication to his career. I sent my husband the links with a note: “Here’s your guy!” Hubby promptly made an appointment, was wowed by the experience and Ian gained a new client. Fast forward a couple of years. My hairdresser/friend in L.A. had suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. I couldn’t replace the friendship (nor would I have wanted to) but would need to establish a relationship with a new stylist. There was no question about who I would contact. It was time for my Deva transformation. It has now been almost a year and a half since my first appointment with Ian. His skill as a hair artist and passion for his career, along with his unpretentious personality won me over from the first appointment. I personally feel uncomfortable in salons with a stuck-up atmosphere and diva (not Deva) behavior from stylists. You will not get that here. Since my Deva transformation, I have lost count of how many people compliment me on my hair. Ian’s management of the “real estate” on my head, my hair color and highlights have moved my head in a whole new direction! Before the pandemic in 2020, Ian had planned to move his practice from Rancho Santa Fe to his new location in Solana Beach. The new location is now open, and he has his own self-contained salon suite (So Curl Hair) in a complex that requires masks and practices social distancing, temperature checks upon entering, hand sanitizer, touchless payments, etc.

Curls in So Cal!

I am so glad to find Ian out here in North County. I've been a client of both Soho and Culver City salons so when I moved to San Diego I wasn't sure I'd find a stylist but with Ian I did! Ian knows curls and waves and I am so grateful for his full service, full attention and lots of reminders and tips on keeping my curls happy. If you are needing to hit the refresh button on your curly or wavy hair, Ian is the one!!
