About Joel C Ma

Joel C Ma Hair Studio is the culmination of an artist's dream. Joel C Ma, the heart and brains behind the studio, is one of the best haircut artists and color specialists in San Diego. A former Tony & Guy hair cutting master, he has been delivering phenomenal hairstyling services to clients for more than 25 years. Joel is especially valued for his razor cut and laser-like approach to long and short layered cuts.

It all began when Joel immigrated to the US from Vietnam in 1983. Though he was only 16 and without family, his aspirations were big. Focused on his passion, he was trained and mentored by a master on straight razor cutting technique. By 2000, his signature razor cut and layering technique were treasured among clients, and by 2010, he was acknowledged as a master color creator and blending artist.

“Joel gave me the best haircut I've had in years! He spent a great deal of time explaining color mistakes and planning how he can fix and improve my look over time. After all over color, my hair looks healthy and shiny again and I look forward to returning for the color adjustments in order to get back to my natural color with a few highlights. He is an artist and teaches his craft lifting his team's skills. His salon is using COVID prevention protocols, checking temperatures, uses plexi-glass, limits customers & ensures all are wearing masks and distancing as much as possible. Thank you!!

I had a great experience! Vanessa was super nice and she did a wonderful job on my hair! I have middle eastern coarse dark hair and she gave me wonderfu highlights, exactly how I wanted! She was also very patient.

Vanessa, Vanessa, Vanessa. Did I already say Vanessa? If you're looking for a triple threat - makeup, hair cuts, and coloring, then she's your girl! Finding a new stylist is often times overwhelming and nerve wracking, from the minute I sat down with V, she slayed my nerves and put me right at ease. As she says, "I know when I pay for a service I want someone to nail it!" And let me tell you, she doesnt just talk the talk , she walks the walk.
