Supporting Local

Third Avenue in Chula Vista has experienced a bit of a renaissance as of late. It’s great to see this old school neighborhood get a face-lift. But like any good plastic surgery, they didn’t try to change too much. It isn’t unrecognizable. I still know I am on Third Avenue, but it looks ‘refreshed’ rather than ‘trying too hard’. There are new businesses mixed in with the long-time businesses creating a familiar feeling mixed in with the excitement of change.

As my long time readers know, I feel strongly about one having a good tailor. I feel the same way about hair. Hair is something one wears every day so why not make an effort? I found this great hair salon called Lydia Hair Salon on Third Avenue that is in the same building as my tailor, Shimaki Tailoring.

Lydia Hair Salon is a small business, run by Misa, who also works as a stylist. To be honest, it does not look like much from the outside. However, inside it is cute, clean and well-run. Misa could not have been more accommodating. She even threw in a mini-scalp massage with my wash and blow dry… heaven. The salon styles both men and women’s hair. I can only speak to wash and blow dry but there were two people waiting when I was there and they have positive reviews on Yelp.

So if you are in the neighborhood, check out the Lydia Hair Salon and support a local business. You will be glad you did!
