Andrea Riklin

Andrea Riklin, operator of The Hair Lair, has been in the beauty industry for over 15 years.

After receiving her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and working at a domestic violence shelter, Andrea wanted to help women feel good about themselves not only inside but outside.

Working in a salon has been a great way to help achieve that goal.

Andrea loves everything about the beauty world from hair to makeup but her favorite has always been experimenting on her own hair color. Her passion for hair color led her to pursue a corporate career as a Color Educator. Andrea worked for the Wella Sebastian Corporation for over 5 years. She worked closely with some of the world's top colorists and assisted them at regional hair shows before deciding to go back to work behind the chair.

  • I would recommend this business

I happened upon this place when I needed to get my tires changed last minute. I was a walk in customer later in the day for a hair color. I've had a hard time finding someone to get the blonde a good color in San Diego. This place did an amazing job and I will be back.

Customer Testimonials

Having recently found out were expecting I wanted to find an organic salon that could provide me with a healthy alternative with out compromising the fun of extreme color. I found exactly what I was hoping for at the hair lair. I was able to make a same day apt for a full color highlights and a cut. I was treated with kindness, a warm cup tea, and one on one personalized service. She listened to my very specific desires regarding cut and highlights and was fast, efficient and considerably less expensive than I was used to paying. I love my color and my hair feels healthier than ever. It's been about a week and the color is still bright and shiny.

Andrea is the best hairstylist all the way around. She is a true professional with a welcoming attitude. I love her location in East Mission Valley because it's so close to my home. Her salon is a space in a business building with parking in the back. You won't experience loud salon music or loud chit chat. I'm sensitive to noise so that's a big deal to me.

As a natural redhead I've had difficulty finding hairstylists over the years who know how to color red hair...that is until I found Andrea at the Hair Lair. Andrea gave me a deep rich auburn with highlights and a sexy layered cut. I have never had so many compliments on my hair. I also like that she doesn't rush through my service like so many other stylists I have used. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her field and it shows in her work. If you want to have hair color done the right way go to Andrea!
