Featured Salon: The Smooth Bar

The Smooth Bar began taming the frizzy locks of women across the sunny city of San Diego in October of 2014. With this opening, the Smooth Bar became the first salon in California to specialize in Brazilian Keratin treatments.


Stacey Zayas, creator of The Smooth Bar, says the idea for the salon was born out of what has become an industry staple in the recent years, smooth and soft hair that has a staying power that outlasts any normal blowout. Zayas wanted to give clients a next level experience of a concept that many in this business say will remain after all of the current hair trends fade away.


Smooth, Silky and Safe

Zayas desired to put together an experience that combats the controversy of the use of some of the ingredients involved in the smoothing process. She felt a responsibility towards her clients and team, whom she fondly calls Smoothologists,that made her rethink the methods that are used.

When she opened her salon she added one key piece of equipment that is both essential to making the process as safe as possible and is also her favorite part of the salon.

This special tool has become the breakout piece of her salon. The state-of-the-art central fume extractor removes the fumes in the air right as the straightening processes are taking place. This makes a much comfortable and safer experience for both her clients and her team.

Specialized Services

This is not the first opening for salon veteran Zayas, but in her opinion it has definitely been the most diverse. They don’t offer any other salon services, which allows The Smooth Bar to be very specialized and focus only on hair smoothing treatments.


“We want to set new standards in the in the hair salon industry by way of safety and specialized hair smoothing services. Our number one goal is to make the clients’ experiences the best they have ever had.”



Zayas’ salon has much of the same feel as the treatments that she offers with the clean lines, fresh feel and a fluidness that is instantly recognized and loved. The Standish Salon Good’s Veronica salon chair compliments the layout and the chair’s compact and clean style adds to the airy, open environment of the salon. Zayas’ choice of the Veronica in white looks perfect alongside her beautiful counters and spacious workspace.


In addition to loving the look of the chair, Zayas says her experience with Standish exceeded her expectations in quality products and the service she received.
