Nobody goes to a men’s hair salon with the expectation of getting an ordinary, stock-standard haircut or shave, and leaving with basic, satisfactory results. There are easier, less expensive, less time-consuming ways of making that happen. It should be an investment in your life, an experience you look forward to, and the best part of any day. You should anticipate leaving the salon feeling like you’ve won a prize, or at least that’s how we see it here at 18|8 San Diego!

We’re about more than lofty promises, though. There are three main reasons why our men’s salon is a one-of-a-kind destination for anyone who wants to treat themselves, but it all stems from one central point: customer experience. The 18|8 brand, which represents the formula for stainless steel (18% chromium and 8% nickel), was built on offering men a one-stop-shop for every grooming need, be it hair, skin, and nail treatments, all wrapped in a classy blanket of relaxation.

Talented People and Personalized Service

Because 18|8 mens salon operates as a multi-service destination and focuses on offering the best experience possible, we’re in the fortunate position of attracting great talent with a wide variety of specialties. From award-winning barbers, to hairdressers, stylists, to cosmetologists, you’ll find a broad spread of incredible people working here. Their skills, artistry and vision are our biggest asset. In addition to the depth of talent at 18|8, each professional brings a unique style and perspective, and insight into the ever-changing style of our times, offering customers a range of experience to connect with while sitting in the chair. The keyword there is ‘connect’: every customer presents a new opportunity to do great work and share their expertise for the benefit of someone else. In terms of value, you couldn’t ask for a better, more committed team.

An Unbeatable Setting

Each 18|8 location has been created as a sanctuary. It’s friendly but private, bubbly and conversational but not overwhelming, and elegant. We’re sticklers for details, and across the board, you will find that everything from the tools used to the fixtures are cherry-picked with style in mind. Plush, leather barber’s chairs; complimentary beer or soda upon arrival; and a hot towel treatment are all included with every service at 18|8. In addition to being the type of place you’d be happy to spend any day, it’s also in the best coastal city: San Diego.

Premium Services & Products

We want customers to enjoy themselves, get the best service available, and then to experience a small reminder of that magic every day. That’s why we only use and sell the fine products that we use ourselves. Brands like Griff, Esquire, and American Crew are all available.

Ultimately, 18|8 is a destination where you have the range of options to get exactly what you’re looking for, the people who can bring your vision to life, and the products to make every treatment valuable to the long term health of your body. It doesn’t matter if you’re here for a 10-minute gray blending session, a 30-minute shave and massage, or an entire morning of treatments; time should stand still for you here. That’s what makes our men’s salon San Diego one-of-a-kind.

Everyone should treat themselves at least once a day. Think about that today – you deserve it. Book an appointment online or give us a call at (858) 914-5418.
