Hair salon Yourshearjoy opened in San Marcos on April 1.

Yourshearjoy is located at 115 Warden Lane, Ste. 7, inside the Plex Business Center.

Owner Emily Jacobo, who has been a licensed professional hairstylist for over eight years, decided to open a salon in San Marcos because there was a need.

“I noticed that there [aren’t many] salons in our area,” Jacobo said. “I thought San Marcos would be a great place to open to reach out to the college students [and to] provide an affordable option to them.”

Yourshearjoy offers precision women’s, men’s and children’s haircuts; beard/bang trims; hair tinsels; blowouts; styling; and brow/lip waxing.

The salon is open by appointment only.
