"I have been a client of Neala's for more than 10 years. Her advice for properly caring for my 'Senior Citizen' skin has always been evident and an inspiration to follow her advice. Her facials are superb and reflect her interest in her clients."

Mrs. C, San Diego, CA

"Nicole has been doing my hair for the past 7 years. Every time I leave the salon I am so happy with the results and people stop me all the time to ask me who does my hair. She is incredibly talented in her profession and she is fast and affordable. I always look forward to seeing her!"

Allison, Carmel Valley


"During the our present recession, my appointments with Suzi have always been a priority. I would rather cut back in other areas of my budget than sacrifice my hair. My hair appointments are certainly a priority for me. I have no idea what Suzi is doing, coloring, or cutting but I do know that my hair looks fabulous. It's quite a safe feeling knowing that you can simply go to your salon, change into your smock and enjoy the appointment."

"I have been a client of Laurie Womack's for the past 15 years & have always received excellent nail & foot care from her. There have been a few times over the years when I have had to use a different manicurist & have never been as happy as I am with Laurie. Not only has Laurie always given exceptional manicures & pedicures, but with her recent addition of foot care, she was able to take care of a painful problem that I had with some of my toenails. I would definitely recommend Laurie to anyone who is looking for nail and/or foot care. "

Jean, San Diego

"It's always a great day, when I have an appointment with Dana. Every three weeks, this skillful professional, wise beyond her years, listens to what I have in mind, makes her suggestions, & works her magic. Part talented artist, part expert chemist, Dana CONSISTENTLY makes my hair look wonderful. Equally important, Dana has taught me the skills & educated me about the tools & products I need to maintain the beautiful look between appointments. I haven't had a bad hair day since I met her, over seven years ago. Best of all, it's a pleasure being in her presence. Dana is upbeat, fun, & smart. Whether I'm in for color, cut, highlights, or all three, time flies by at the cozy salon."

Anne, San Diego


"My mother and I have been clients for over 15 years. Our "Irish skin" and blue eyes can often switch from an asset to a liability as we age. However, even though my mama--who is in her 80s-- and I am in my 60s, we continually receive compliments on our skin - even in the doctor's office. One of the physicians on my last visit stated, 'Your complexion is amazing considering your age and fair skin.' We owe it all to Neala and her great care. We recommend her to all our friends and they have always been equally as grateful for the referral."

Mrs. S, San Diego, CA


"The Salon is a quiet perfect, secret place, where I have my hair and many other personal care solutions taken care of in a quality manner. The salon offers hair, skin, eyebrows, products, and shopping. All while I sip my favorite fluids and a healthy snack as well. All persons are comfortable and wonderful! Enjoy"

Belinda, Rancho Santa Fe


"Let me say that having a facial by Neala Moch is a little trip to heaven. Her studio is a hidden gem in Del Mar with a beautiful interior that is soothing and luxurious. Neala's exceptional techniques come from many years of study and have earned her the title as the best aestheitician in San Diego. Her customized treatments have kept me coming back for more than a decade with excellent results. I feel that aging, fatigue, sun exposure, dryness -all can be conquered through Neala's wonderful hands!"

Clare, Rancho Santa Fe


"When I first came to Jennifer many years ago, my hair was so over processed and damaged that she had her work cut off for her. She has brought my hair back to life and I love the shape and condition it is in now. We color and cut my hair on a regular basis to keep it in the great shape it is in now. If I feel like something new I just tell Jennifer and she listens and gives me my options. I will not go any where else."

Debbie, San Diego


"Fabulous! The decor, the atmosphere, and Brenna. What a winning combination! The Stratford House is an oasis of peace and relaxation during an otherwise hectic day. When I go to the salon it feels like I am visiting the home of a good friend. Brenna has been expertly coloring and cutting my hair for about seven or eight years and I continue to receive compliments on how beautiful it looks. She is a talented and skilled stylist and I always marvel at how consistently excellent all of her work is. My daughter is also a devoted fan of Brenna's and would not allow anyone else to touch her hair. One visit with Brenna and I am certain that you will become a fan too!"

Olga, Carmel Valley


“I’ve tried numerous products and worked with a variety of skin care professionals over the past 10 years, and I’ve finally found what works for me! Melinda’s products and treatments are working wonderfully, and even more important, they’re not costing me a fortune. I couldn’t be happier.”

Julie, Rancho Santa Fe


"Relaxing, informal, yet professional atmosphere. Whether going for a complete makeover or a quick fix, leave feeling pampered and beautifed. I highly recommend all services offered at this premier "boutique" salon in Del Mar!"

Margaret, Del Mar


"My experience as a customer of the Stratford House, and in particular as a client of Brenna Oakley, has been tremendous. The environment they have created there is one of relaxation and comfort, which is truly unique when compared to most salons. Brenna has proven that she is both an extremely talented styist as well as a great person. Her warm personality is a true asset to the Stratford House and one of the many reasons why I remain a loyal client. The Stratford House provides a diverse selection of services and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for talented salon professionals and a unique atmosphere."

"Melinda has been doing my manicures and pedicures for over 15 years my natural nails always look great,and I feel she does the best job. Now that she has become an esthetician she does a fabulous facial as well. One stop shopping!"

Tricia, Rancho Santa Fe


"Jen has been doing my hair for years now as well as my mom's, and to be quite honest I cannot imagine anyone else touching my hair. I can go in to see her with an idea and she pretty much visualizes exactly what I am talking about and works magic. She always adds a little spunk to whatever she does for me. I can truthfully say that I trust her opinion and judgement with not only my color, but my cut. I always get compliments on my hair and have referred many people to her. If you want amazing looking and feeling hair I would say come and see Jen, I promise you won't be disappointed."

Jessica, San Diego


"Nicole has been styling my hair for over 5 years now and I have never looked back. She is honest, patient and excellent at what she does. I believe she has found the perfect home to take care of all of us clients at The Stratford House. I love the experience.. it's cozy, relaxed and quaint."

Joanne, San Diego


"It is a pleasant,pampering,and relaxing experience to go to the nicely decorated Stratford House to have Suzi cut and color my hair. I have fine hair and she does a fantastic job cutting it to make it manageable for me. I receive many complements on the color of my hair- I never bother to tell people it is really grey and Suzi just does her magic on it!!"

Sue, Del Mar


"The Stratford House is an adorable and chic salon where you can have services done by the best! Dana has been my stylist for more than 7 years and she has never failed me. She is an incredible colorist and always gives a great cut. Dana has done my fabulous up-dos for me as well, for various events. I know when I am sitting in her chair, I am in good hands and always leave happy and looking my best!"

Randi, Carmel Valley
