             Welcome ...        

The Avati Salon is an upscale salon located in a neighborhood in San Diego, California bordered by University City to the North, Clairemont to the East, La Jolla and Pacific Beach to the West, and Bay Park to the South, and the Morena Blvd. CostCo just down the street.  We believe it is much needed in this particular area. 

Avati is independently owned and operated by Denise Mayer, a Master Hair Color Specialist and stylist. Denise has over 38 years experience in the salon business and salon ownership. She is joined by friends, all professionals, and all with years of experience.

We have some of the most creative hair stylists. We cater to women, men and children. We will strive to provide the best services, a quality product offering, and an enjoyable, comfortable and relaxed environment for your visits. We are in a center with restaurants, opened for lunch, dinner and weekend breakfast, a liquor store, dry cleaner, creative dance studio, a drive through coffee stand and a Dentist office is moving into the center. Recently the Oasis cafe opened in the center which offers a variety of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a Huka lounge.

There will be pleasant music to listen to, a comfortable waiting area, magazines to read, a drink bar with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bottled water and FREE WIFI for our clients. Come for a visit, ask questions, meet the people who work here, make an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.  The goal of the salon is to service the clients' needs cheerfully, professionally and to make their visit memorable.. Walk-ins are always welcome.

After 3 years we finally got the back wall upgraded, new wood, paint, electrical and boom... we have our new sign up.

News ...

Avati Salon owners and staff would like to extend their condolences and appreciation to 23-year-old Madison Elizabeth Cornwell who was killed in a head on collision with a Ford F-350 pickup driven by a DUI driver on 163 on Saturday morning May 16.

She was a student at UC San Diego School of Medicine and she had graciously donated her hair at our Locks Of Love event, to create wigs for those who lose their hair while going through cancer treatments. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends during this emotional time.

Sunday March 16th, 2014 we hosted our fourth Locks of Love event. We would like to thank Bre for setting up the event and all those who generously and lovingly donated their hair for this worthy cause. We extend a special thanks to those who donated hair, that are going through cancer treatment themselves yet were willing to put aside their own situations and dedicate this time to help the children who are also facing this disease. See more on our Locks of Love page.

On Saturday, February 22, 2014, we had our Grand Opening, party. Many family, friends, clients, local businesses and people from the area attended. We all had a great time, the party ran from 5:00 - 9:00 pm and everyone had a great time. A special thanks to Isabellas Restaurant and the Oasis Restaurant for helping to cater special food dishes for the party. We would also like to thank everyone who attended and for the flowers, wine and other gifts that were given to us to congratulate us on the Grand Opening.

On Saturday, February 22, 2014, at 5:00 pm we are finally celebrating our Grand Opening, now that our expansion is complete. Please read the invitation below and plan on joining us for this event.
