Located in the heart of Ocean Beach since 1984, The Electric Chair Salon on Newport Avenue has always been an iconic salon, giving off an edgy and fun vibe. Whether you are looking for some outrageous vivid color or just a simple trim, the salon has it all. Not only do they offer all types of hairstyles, they also welcome all types of hair.

The salon has made recent improvements and updates thanks to the new owner, Marcia Wood, who purchased the business in 2016. “We still have the classic rock and roll theme, but we have upgraded our equipment, products, and lighting to improve the quality and it makes it more vibrant,” she said.

Wood is passionate about art and music, which the salon vividly displays; however, something new that she brings to the business is an inclusive and equalized culture, which promotes many social movements.

“Having a child that identifies as gender-neutral makes it really important that our salon reflects gender-neutral pricing and treatment,” Wood said.

All of the stylists have their own pricing that depends on the length of hair, the amount of hair, and the products used; never on gender. The salon is also a proud member of The Professional Beauty Association, supporting the “cut it out” program, which helps raise awareness on domestic and emotional abuse.

Additionally, to honor those who have served in the military and their families, the salon offers a military discount of 15 percent off.

“Our goal is to fulfill everyone's hair ideals with the best care, kindness, and, most importantly, quality,” Wood said. “Our incredible stylists can transform a simple haircut into a work of art.”
