Nelly is an awesome hair-stylist... been with her for more than 3 years!  Friendly, relaxing environment.  And Emmanuel tries hard to keep stylists as well as customers happy.

I recently moved to SF and am picky about who does my hair. I took a risk and tried out Atelier Emmanuel since the Yelp reviews looked great. I'm SO happy I did. I had Cassie color/balayage my hair and she did an amazing job. I didn't have a clear idea of what I wanted to do but she talked it out with me and I trusted her to do what made sense for my dark hair. It turned out incredible. It's a few months later and I'm still so happy when I look in the mirror. It was definitely pricey, but worth it in my opinion. Highly recommend her - truly an artist :) More...

In 8 years in San Francisco, I can say that I've found good hair stylists but not amazing hair stylists, until I've found Thomas at Atelier Emmanuel.Many stylists take time to listen to you but not for very long and they quickly assume they get what you want. Thomas took time to listen but also asked many precise and great questions to avoid subjective impressions and make sure we were on the same page. After the little "audit", what needed to be done was not exactly what I booked for so Thomas was very considerate and explained his plan as well as updated the quote for me so I knew in advance the final cost. Thomas is not only expert in his technique, I believe he has an extra talent beyond mastering  technique. Omg those balayages....If you follow his Instagram you will be blown away to see the before and after of his clients. Thomas is above average gifted. Beside that, he was very pleasant to chat with, a wonderful amount of discussion but also concentration which I loved. I left with a high-end new color that I've never managed to achieved in my life yet. Thomas gave me tailored advice to maintain it and explained what would be the touch-ups and next steps in a couple of months. 2 months later, the color still has dimension and evolved super nicely whereas in the past it would go brassy and faded in just a few weeks. I couldn't recommend Thomas more and I'm so relieved I've found him. Superstar! More...

I always feel so much better after I see my stylist Nelly. Outside and inside. Not only she does a fantastic job with color and cuts, she is also an uplifting conversationalist. I highly, highly recommend her.

An amazing experience with Thomas, so happy to finally find the one in SF. I am so happy with my new color and cut. I really appreciate also all the advises that he gave me on how to take care of my hair after. Great team would be back

I got my first haircut from here today and had a great experience.  The team was welcoming and it is a nice modern salon with a lot of talented people.  Thomas did a good job of listening to what I wanted and providing suggestions for my haircut.  The online booking system is a plus.  Will be back again.

Admittedly, I started coming here because I purchased a Groupon. I grew up a bit hair spoiled, relying on my Aunt to do all of my cut and colours my whole life. This meant I never felt comfortable paying much for a haircut.However, after I came to Atelier Emmanuel, I've been going back ever since. I was fortunate enough to have Cassie my first time around and I instantly fell in love with her. She is super friendly, has some amazing tattoos, and knows how to thin out hair like its nobody's business.  I raved about her so much my husband goes to get his haircut there now too!I highly recommend and make sure you ask for Cassie!

Amazing men's cuts too I was a client several years ago but my stylist moved abroad. After that I bounced around for a while..never quite as happy as I was at Atelier Emmanuel. While I prefer high end salons, some are not so cool with precision men's barbering, catering more to female clients instead. Went back in today for a men's cut with Indelisa. She was wonderful from the start. Very engaging, asked me a lot of questions about my previous cuts and how I want my hair to look now. She is very warm and hospitable, as are all the other team members I encountered.  I walked out with a great cut that I am very happy with and my hour in the salon was a refreshing and restorative experience. Price was very fair for a high end salon downtown. After so many years I expected the prices to be very high now, as they are doing business in San Francisco after all. Seeing Emmanuel and Paul was a delight as well. Being treated well, looking good when it's over, and paying a fair price for the experience are essential hallmarks of a great luxury hair salon. Atelier Emmanuel hit all the marks as always. Thank you Indelisa and Emmanuel. I'll see you again soon. I am glad to be back. Joel More...

Let me tell you: Thomas is amazing! This is the second time I had balayage done by him, and I'm beyond happy - again. It is such a relief to finally find someone as talented as he is, so I can just sit at the chair and be tranquil that my hair is in good hands. Highly recommend stopping by and having your hair transformed by him. More...

As I said, Atelier Emmanuel closed one of their locations within the last year. I decided to come back to Atelier Emmanuel for an apprentice haircut. My hair is fairly simple for an Asian girl. No frills. Just trim the damn hair and don't cut it too short to make me look like a dork. Angela was the apprentice today and she did a good job I'd say. I was in for an hour. Emmanuel was not present as he is busy settling into the one space he has now in the FiDi. It was hard to find it, but I did with Google Maps. The next time I go I will get an apprentice to give a balayage and I decided that I would get a balayage once a year. That'll do for me. The apprentice haircut today was $30 with tax and tip. Cassie(spelling) was supervising the apprentices. It was a nice place to get a haircut and I would be repeat customer at Atelier. I have to cut corners on cost somewhere and my budget analyst says that I will get apprentice haircuts at Atelier Emmanuel in downtown SF for quite a while now. Cheers!PS When they wash your hair, the seats have electric massages. YAY! And they give out free coffee(I had one before and after with cream and sugar). Here's to my new hair salon dive in SF!

The other day I had an AMAZING experience with Cassie and Fatima. I believe today we went for a single process color service. My hair was very brassy and had a serious case of hot roots. From what I can tell, Cassie was very engaged on coaching Fatima throughout this service and ensured that I would leave the salon happy with the results. I learned so much about my hair just by observing, Cassie really does understand her craft and you can tell that she loves her job as an educator.Although it was such a simple service, it made a huge difference in my hair and I can now walk around not feeling like a zebra with the stripes on my head. They also gave me some shampoo/conditioner/hair mask samples for color treated hair! Such a great experience, I already had my next appointment scheduled and plan on purchasing the shampoo/conditioner they recommended. I've been to several high end salons in San Francisco and Atelier Emmanuel is definitely top notch. More...

My whole experience at this salon was great. Krystal was amazing! Very talented and listened very closely to me. I hadn't had my hair done in 6+ months with some pretty dark roots. She did a cool toned balayage that I love. She was VERY engaged and obviously cares a lot about her work. I also really liked that the owner was there working on clients and also walking around making sure everyone was taken care of. Thanks for the great experience Krystal and team! I'll be back!

Cassie is a wizard! After my longtime stylist moved to New York, I bounced from salon to salon trying to find my new person. A Groupon led me to Cassie, and after my first cut I was sold. I've been going to her for the last year, and I'm always very happy with my hair. Free bang trims between cuts keeps me fresh and happy! More...

Absolutely the best hair salon in the city. I originally was brought here because of a Groupon and I'm so glad I took a chance because I will go out of my way to keep coming back. Turns out all of my girlfriends come here too! I get cuts and the occasional balayage with Indelisa and she's great. She does a great cut and color (especially on my natural strawberry blonde hair - which I'm protective of with color)! Highly recommend her and the entire salon. More...

I've been trying to find someone to do a particular haircut/style for years... To me it seems so simple. I want a long shag with lots and lots of layers. Today I met Cassie at Atelier Emmanuel on Claude. Cassie starts off with a consultation to make sure we are both on the same page then off to the shampoo bowl. This bowl is amazing!!! I believe the chair was giving me a massage at the same time Cassie was massaging my head/washing my hair. Very nice experience.  Cassie not only knows how to do a long shag, she loves doing them. I watched her work magic with her razor. She followed my natural curls and knew just where to cut to make my curls fall perfectly around my face. Cassie even got me to try going with curly bangs. Honestly, I wasn't sure but I trusted Cassie and the vision she had for my hair. So glad I did... I love love love this cut. I walked out of the salon with a little bit more pep in my step. I felt great. I do not live in the Bay Area but I'll be back to see Cassie. Thanks Cassie : ) More...

Originally found this place through a Groupon and fell in love with it. Cassie gave me a haircut and have to say she's amazing. Took her time to personalize and really understand what I wanted for my hair, learned a lot that I felt like I was getting an education and a haircut for the price of one! The space is also beautiful, I'd gladly come back. More...

BEST BOUTIQUE SALON IN SF- Staff is ultra friendly. If you are looking for top quality service and a place to call your salon of choice this is for sure the place. I have been a client for 14 years. Emmanuel the owner is hands on and is always striving to make sure he and his team provide the very best. Cheers More...

I loved my old color, but recently moved to SF and knew it was time to find a new local salon. I am glad I did my research, Krystal was perfect. We had a real consultation (where I felt like she was actually hearing me and not just nodding her head), and the color turned out beautiful, natural, and almost exactly like my previous color. Unfortunately, her and I are not very good at before and after photos, but we will have time to practice because I am definitely coming back. On a personal note, she had another client who was finishing up and seemed down. Krystal went out of her way to style her hair and tell her jokes and make her smile again. I thought this spoke to her character and the energy she brings to her client. That is a real treat in this city. More...

I can't say enough great things about my experience. I emailed them on short notice (right before Christmas) for a color and trim. I was immediately and luckily given an appt the same day with Mari and Miguel. They did amazing! Miguel knew what I wanted off the bat which was to tone down my balayage but still keep some warmth. Color only took an hr (super quick!) and then Mari gave me the best trim to revive my hair. They're super friendly and take the time to listen to your vision to give you the best results. I'm beyond appreciative for their team work and taking me in at the last min! I love my hair so so much and will definitely be going back when it's time for a touch up. More...

I've never felt romantic love for a stylist before, but there's a first time for everything - including me finding a hairstyle I actually love! Cassie gave me the best hairstyle I've had in my adult life, and I finally like my hair! Seriously guys. It's been 20 years of "meh." 2 important things:1. I say "hairstyle" because it was more than a cut - Cassie also taught me how to style it, and how to take care of it so it looks even better in the future. She understood my difficult, fine-as-hell and super thin hair (despite having a magnificent mane of her own that is nothing like mine) and knew exactly how to handle it, including cut, style, and ongoing care. You can tell that she's an educator at heart (she taught in the past and currently mentors trainees at the salon), and she takes this aspect as seriously as she does the immediate treatment/haircut. (LOVE THAT.) She pointed out that if she gives a great cut and sends someone out the door with no idea how to style or maintain it, then she hasn't done her job (and that person probably won't end up liking the cut because they don't know how to manage it). This was all KEY for me, because I am a hair idiot and I have no idea how to handle my kinda-difficult hair (difficult only in that it's so flat and fine that I've never been able to do much w it). So I really wanted to learn, and happily, I did. She is extremely knowledgeable, and I learned a lot about hair in general, my hair type, cutting and coloring. She also gave me a lovely part-balayage, part-highlights color that I just love, and that apparently is going to be pretty low-key to maintain. All this, for me?!2. Cassie is just generally THE BEST. I told her that I didn't know what would look best with my hair/face and I had some pictures/ideas, but I wanted her to tell me "no" if something wouldn't work. She immediately responded, "No is the most complete sentence in the world." - YES. IN LOVE. I do NOT want a yes-man stylist, I want someone who'll give me real talk and straight up tell me NO if I'm going to do something dumb! Hair isn't my area, it's hers. So I love her. Also, that's just good life advice for anyone, anytime. I loved the salon in general, but I REALLY love Cassie. Guys, I feel like I won the Tinder lottery - but even better, because everyone knows you can be with a hair stylist for life. Oh, I also had to go find a pair of Old Navy peep-toe heels on the internets after seeing her wearing them. I came out of this appointment with SO much, guys. More...

I finally found a wonderful salon starting with the  friendly receptionists to my new go to Colorist/Stylist Thomas.  Thomas is easy to talk too, he really took the time to evaluate my hair and give me his recommendations, but most importantly he listened to me.  The result was a wonderful haircut (long layers) and the perfect edgy hair color vibrant red with hints of purple.  I have received countless compliments and I absolutely love it!  Thank you Thomas....

I just want to say how pleased and delighted I am with Indelisa's prowess with the scissors. She gave me the best cut I have had in years. And it held up past the initial "wow" factor. She definitely got a feel for my hair type and the texture to give me the best cut possible that would frame my face and be easy to maintain. She spent extra time making it perfect and curling it with a curling iron. Indelissa, you made my day and I feel even more confident with my new hair! Thank you!!! More...

Indelisa and Cassie paired up on my wedding day to style my hair (Indelisa) and makeup​ (Cassie). They both did a fabulous job! They were so easy to work with, attentive to my party's hair and makeup requests, and made us all look amazing. Indelisa has been my hair stylist for the last couple of years,​ and she is excellent​! Her passion for hair styling people shows through her work. She is attentive to details, creative and always goes above and beyond to make you feel happy. I highly recommend her! More...

Was really nervous about my balayage because it had been years; I did tons of research and decided to request Krystal (I booked the appt before the Groupon to ensure I could get her). She was fabulous! She asked me lots of questions about what exactly I wanted, gave her honest opinions (I asked for them), and let me ask all the questions I needed to be comfortable before we began. It turned out perfectly and I am thrilled. I will be back. The salon itself is comfortable. All who work there are kind and welcoming; they offer you beverages when you come in and throughout your appointment. More...

Alejandra has given me the best hair color of my life! She and Cassie sat me down and explained to me how to get the color Ive been seeking for years! Turns out tinting and highlift bleaching aren't right for me. Instead, Alejandra has been doing beautiful highlighting and toning. So now my hair isn't brassy from tinting or over processed from tinting, & my silver greys look like sparkly platinum accent pieces! Bonus: Alejandra will give you the best blowout-style of your life! I get compliments on hthem even a week after! More...

Cassie knows hair - she took the time to ask specific questions regarding my personal hair routine and what I was looking for while also giving her professional advice.

The atmosphere was nice and clean, the staff and stylist was honest and opinionated. My stylist Thomas was awesome and he cut my hair the way I wanted and showed him a picture when I got to the hair salon place. I checked in the salon place since it was my first time and it says that I will be getting 15% off; however, I was not able to get the 15% off and also I forgot to mention to the cashier when I paid for the service. Also, they were about to close for the day and I totally forgot to tell them about the 15% off More...

I went to Crystal for my first ever partial balayage and absolutely loved her. Here are some of the highlights:- She went out of her way to educate me on the balayage process and what to expect. - She was really easy to talk to and made me super comfortable- She realized I didn't use heat protector so she got me multiple samples to take home and try- I told her I am learning how to curl my hair, so she curled mine and talked me through how to curl it better. - She offered for me to come back anytime after work and if she doesn't have appointments, we can play around with my hair and try curling etc. - She did a GREAT job on my hair! I loved it and she talked me through how I can expect the color to change over time. - Since she realized I was moving back to Chicago, she wanted me to know the formula in case I want to get it done the same way again. She wrote down all the details for me. Highly recommend this place - The salon is clean and the staff is great! More...

Found this place on Groupon. First off, they are very good at answering their phone, and there was not a long wait for an appointment, very promising. Booked for a Friday afternoon, and was set up with Miguel. Arrived a few minutes late, and was seated straight away. Miguel was great at listening to what I wanted, and even though there was a little confusion as to the service I booked (partial as opposed to full balayage) they were very accommodating, and I was extremely happy with the result. Will definitely come back again. More...

I'm writing this review after sadly moving away from SF...so I can no longer go to Indelisa...who is the best. She cut my hair, my wife's hair and my mom's hair. We all have very different hair types/hair cuts and she always did an amazing job on all of us, even my wife who is pretty fussy and sometimes doesn't know what she wants, etc. She really listens and her hair cuts are so flattering. Also, when you show her a picture of a hair cut, she makes your hair look just like the picture and does EXACTLY what you want, unlike a lot of salons I have been to. I wish I could magically transport her to the city where I live now. Thank you for all the good hair cuts!! Also, prices are really reasonable too! More...

This is for the salons nail service. They do hard gel and they do it with attention to detail! I live in Sweden and I’m used to a very high standard of nail service (90-120 mins for nail enhancement treatments)I booked my appointment through text messaging and they had an appointment later the same day. They had an AI (chat bot) to answer BUT was also quick to answer the regular way (I had some additional questions) This was very convenient and a good experience.At $60 for hard gel + gel polish it may be slightly more expensive than other salons (by maybe $10), but I will definitely return here!!April was not only very friendly, she was also very thorough (which a lot of nail techs don’t seem to be in US)! And she’s been working with nails for a long time so you know she knows her stuff (14 years in this salon).If you want a pedicure April does that too. And then of course you have the salon options of haircut, waxing, facial etc to choose from.Since they are located on the 4th floor it’s a calming experience and nothing rushed. More...

She was clearly knowledge with her recommendations and was friendly and pleasant to chat with. Depending on who you see, women's haircuts are about $95. More...

Can't express enough how much I love my hair! Found this place on Groupon, I thought it was a great deal for a partial balayage.

She really listened to me and what I wanted, asked a few extra times just to make sure I was happy! I love how it turned out, it's exactly what I wanted; a nice blend of browns and blondes that won't look too fake. Def going back when needed! Also, sparkling water and massage chairs.. really great experience! More...

Just had my partial balayage with Cassie! Had a really pleasant experience having my hair done here :) Cassie has great energy and was really friendly the entire time, teaching me about hair, the science of toners and how the "lifting" of hair color process unfolds. Also the general vibe of the interior of the studio with its pastel palette and beautiful wall-length windows sets an inviting and relaxed space. I couldn't help but hum along to the playlist (curated collectively by all the staff) while waiting for the toner to develop. Definitely am coming back in the future for more! More...

Krystal is amazing, such a great listener and everything she touches turns into gold! My sister actually dubbed her "fairy godmother" because she truly made us feel super special and helping us achieve the hair colors we wanted was just an extra bonus!

Had a fun afternoon with Cassie (shoutout to Groupon!) for a *super* cute haircut & style! She is honest and a great listener, as well as hilarious & entertaining -- all great traits in a stylist, and I will definitely be back. The salon is also very nice (basically new), relaxed and not pretentious at all! So glad I found it. More...

Thank you Jeremy for the amazing cut and layers and making me feel great!

Bonus - massage chair when getting your hair washed :) More...

When i got to this professional establishment, I kindly greeted by Mariah. She was friendly and comforting knowing that I just traveled an hour and 45 min. I was asked if I would like a refreshment, which I gladly accepted a glass of champagne. Mariah than introduced me to Krystal who was going to do my color. Krystal was extremely knowledgeable. She asked what I wanted and I told her that I did not want any more gray hair.  We discussed a few ideas and then she proceeded to color my hair. After my color was completed I was then handed off to Indelisa who I have to say was very professional as well.  We discussed how I wanted my haircut then she proceeded to cut my hair. Indelisa too was extremely professional and knowledgeable as well.All I have to say is my experience at this hair salon was wonderful from the time I walked in the door, greeted by Mariah to getting my hair colored by Krystal and finishing it up with my hair being cut by Indelisa. I will always continue to revisit even if I have to drive an hour and a half. I would definitely recommend the salon anytime! More...

I have plenty of stories to share about stylists who don't listen and cut more than what I ask for. I've been trying to grow my hair out for a few years now after a very short bob cut, but the weird front layers just didn't make sense to me. After thinking frequently about how I want my hair to look like, I decided to go through the process of growing it out again by chopping it off a bit below my shoulders and getting rid of those front layers. Before making an appointment with Atelier on Claude Lane, I spoke with Cassie over the phone to explain my hair situation and express my concerns. She was understanding and explained how we can cut and blend some of those layers to look like a long bob without cutting my hair too short. I went to my appointment the next morning and we spoke once more about the cut. I was a little nervous because I didn't want to walk out with short hair and I made sure to let Cassie know. Again, she was understanding and showed me how much she's going to cut off a few times through out the process. Lastly, I am very happy that I ended up going to Atelier and had Cassie as my stylist. She represents a professional who actually listens to what a client really wants rather than exaggerating her work like many other stylists I've met in the past. I'll definitely return when I'm back to San Francisco in the future! More...

Krystal did an amazing job! I'm picky when it comes to my blonde highlights, but she took the time to understand what I wanted and made me look like a natural blonde. Shirley was able to squeeze me into a quick trim and I left with a whole new hairdo even if she just cut an inch off! Will definitely be going back! More...

Tucked away at the corner of Claude Lane, but not super hard to find! The space is very open and bright, which was nice. My stylist took me in later than my appointment was scheduled for, but I had time and didn't mind too much. I could see how a busy schedule could make this difficult, though. I came in wanting to keep my length but add more layers, and that's exactly what I got. I like my top layers to be very short and they gave me that. Other salons don't listen as carefully, or they kind of give you what you want...but not really. I really appreciated this at this salon and will likely return for another cut. More...

Krystal did an amazing job on my hair. She worked with me on what would work with my hair and skin tone and worked off of pictures I chose out beforehand.

Absolutely had the best experience with Krystal. She completely transformed my hair a year ago, and outdid herself this time around. I went blonde last year and it looked beautiful. This year I wanted to go ashy blonde/brunette with lavender. It took 8 hours to complete, but when she was done it was a masterpiece. She took her time to weave through all the strands and her artistry and commitment shows. I have never received so many compliments about my hair and I love it to pieces myself. Definitely recommend Krystal - does such a great job and makes you feel super comfortable throughout the process. More...

Hair color by Krystal - she is the best colorist in SF. I moved from Europe 4 year ago and tried different salons and colorists but was never happy with the result.  My original hair is very dark and when I dye them into blond they get reddish if done not probably. Krystal did magic with my hair color, looks just amazing without even bleaching. Thank you Krystal !!! More...

Of all my salon experiences, I loved this one the most! I came in for a balayage with Krystal. I showed her pictures of what I wanted and she explained the process and let me know what I wanted to achieve would take couple sessions. I have relatively long, dark and thick hair and want to go towards light brown/blonde. In my first session, Krystal took her time to ensure everything was well done and the process would keep my hair as healthy/shiny as possible; she also used olaplex. I walked away absolutely loving my hair and the whole experience was incredibly relaxing. My hair still feels incredibly soft and manageable despite being so much lighter in colour.The salon itself (Claude Lane) has very nice and courteous staff working there. It's nicely decorated and clean. I love that Krystal didn't rush the process and she was incredibly sweet, knowledgable, and professional! I will be coming back for the remaining sessions and I can't wait! More...

I love the partial balayage treatment!  This place is nice and new on equipments and space for a hair salon hidden in the FiDi alley! Hair touch ups and spoiling the hair, takes so much time out of one's day. I was here for about 4 hours plus!  Pampering was much needed. Indelisa was charismatic and cherry throughout the hair session.  The head massage was relaxing when the shampoo and conditioning was in play. Worth it for the price and treatments here! More...

This salon is great! They opened summer 2017 and definitely deserve some love and recognition for their great work. I got my haircut by Shirley who did a fabulous job listening to my concerns and giving a great suggestion on what she thought I would like. I asked to keep the same length (mid back) except cutting off split ends but add in layers as short as possible but only enough that it does not look funny with having such long hair. She helped frame my face and added layers everywhere. After blow drying we checked certain parts in the front for face framing and she fixed it afterwards. I actually liked that she did that because once you cut off the hair you can't bring it back right away. So she started off a little lower and than shortened the face framing a little more to be safe.  will definitely be going back! More...

I enjoyed my experience here more than I usually do at a salon. Everyone seemed relaxed and friendly, the place was clean and organized. It was very pleasant. This makes me thing they have good management; I like it when employees at a place seem happy. It makes me want to come back if they're being treated well and are happy. All the employees here were super. My visit was inspired by a Groupon and I'm so glad I decided to go.  My friendly stylist, Indelisa, listened intently to my meandering hair story and turned it into fabulous results better than I had imagined. I have to say, her people skills surpassed most stylists I've visited. I really like her, she made me feel at ease. She's incredibly good at what she does (and passionate about it - she loves her job). This is exactly the kind of person I need to take my hair in hand and fix it up to look decent again. I am relatively clueless in this arena, and have found it to be a losing game to try and execute at home. (I have stains in the bathroom that attest to this).The whole experience was very positive and easy. I loved the result and I really enjoyed being in the salon. More...

This review is for a color appointment with Krystal.I had highlights that had grown out and wanted to go with either another highlight treatment or potentially balayage. Enter Atelier Emanuel. I purchased a Groupon to check it out since I hadn't been there before, and because of some work related scheduling issues (on my end), which AM was kind enough to accommodate, I ended up having my appointment with Krystal instead of the stylist listed on Groupon so that I could get my appointment in before the holidays (seriously, so thoughtful!).Let me tell you, not only is Krystal a lovely person, she has some serious skills. I had highlights done with a root smudge (think color melting) so that the contrast isn't so harsh as they grow out. I absolutely LOVE the results. Not to mention, I ended up having to work most of the time that I was there, so Krystal was not only able to work her magic seemingly effortlessly, but she did so with zero issues while I was on some emergency work calls and typing away on my laptop periodically. Overall, this was probably the best customer service experience I've had at a salon to date. I'm so glad that I was not able to make the original appointment (maybe I should thank myself for mismanaging my schedule? lol) because it resulted in my discovering this very talented and charming colorist.

This is my go-to salon in this city. Krystal has been doing my color for about 2 years and she is truly gifted at what she does. She takes the time to ask me what I want -- even when I am not totally sure what I want, she listens to me and always is patient and doesn't rush me as if she has another client coming in right after me. Also....SHE KNOWS COLOR! I have gone from platinum blonde, to dark brown, to everything in between and she always makes sure my hair is healthy and shiny.The salon is clean, bright and the staff is friendly and knowledgable. They also just opened a second location in the Claude Alley and they have massaging chairs for your hair wash! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Krystal and think she is truly one of the most knowledgeable and experienced stylist I have ever encountered. You will not regret getting your hair done by her! I look forward to seeing her and spending time in her chair. More...

She's talented, patient, and keeps my hair healthy (and I very long color processed hair).Every time I see Abby, I never plan on going out after, but once she's done how could I not go show off her work? Always so happy with how my hair turns out. Also the new salon is beautiful. The wash chairs are also massage chairs! More...

The best salon I have been to in San Francisco hands down! I have been to both locations, and they are both great and super chic! I am so picky and particular with my hair, I definitely don't trust many people with it! When I moved here from Dallas, I did sooo much research on salons, asked for referrals from everyone I possibly could, and checked reviews and top ranked salons on various websites! I saw all over multiple sites great reviews and decided to come for a consultation (which they happily did for me)! KRYSTAL is amazing with color, I am a blonde and she does a phenomenal job every time! I could not recommend her more, she is so sweet, accommodating and answers all of my 21 questions! She takes passion in her work, and is truly very educated and knows what she is doing. My favorite part about her is that she gives her honest opinion and helps you reach your hair goals.  When I first came in she was giving me options on how to make my color blend better so I could go longer between appointments. That's money out of her pocket, I have never had a stylist do that! They normally try to get you in as much as possible.*Also!!! She introduced me to olaplex, which is an absolute life saver when coloring your hair! I recommend seeing Krystal 1000% and I am so glad I found her because before I was flying back and forth to dallas to get my hair done! A+++ More...

I originally posted this at the Stockton location but it should be here too.I am very, very particular about my hair. I was a hairstylist and I was married to a very talented hairstylist so I have been a bit spoiled in the quality of services I have received over the years. I have been fortunate enough to visit both locations and I've always received outstanding services.Shirley gave me a fantastic haircut in January at the Stockton location and this past week I visited the Claude Lane location. The salon is beautiful and has a different vibe. I love both but the energy is different. I received an outstanding shampoo with the best scalp message ever from Abby. Shirley gave me a blowout and trimmed my bangs. I received a number of compliments and now I don't want to wash my hair! I would visit more often, but I live in Portland, Oregon and yes, the haircut Shirley gave me has looked great for 6 months. I highly recommend the salon and feel confident that any stylist you see will take fantastic care of you.AND they offer waxing and facials at the Stockton Street location--go, go now! More...

I moved from San Diego two years ago and have been looking for someone who can leave me with that better-than-expectation feeling. I almost don't even want to give out the names of the wonderful people that achieved it, but I won't be selfish because they both deserve for everybody to know just how great they are: Angela and Lasalette. Angela gave me a fantastic cut and in record time, too! I have ultra-dense, long hair and finding someone who can manage my locks can be somewhat of a feat. I was very impressed with her work and feel lucky to have secured an appointment with her at all! She's the kind of stylist that you'd expect to have to book months in advance. It's clear that she knows exactly what she's doing and makes you feel like you can rest assured that it will turn out fantastic- and it definitely did! And for the wonderful Lasalette: let me start by saying that I've had not-so-great experiences with bleach in the past (streaky and unblended and striped.. oh my!) so I was hesitant to brave the blonde path again but I'm so glad that I did. Lasalette has fully restored my faith in balayage! Again, because I have crazy thick, dense hair, working with it appropriately requires TONS of patience. In the past, I've been rushed out by (understandably) tired, overwhelmed colorists resulting in (less understandably) poor results. Lasalette really took her time and I couldn't have been more appreciative and pleased with my new blonde! Also, if you have to spend four hours in a salon chair with someone she's definitely your girl.. she's absolutely wonderful and I couldn't say nicer things about her! Thank you, thank you again ladybirds! I'll be back:) More...

I got my hair cut by Kash a couple of years ago and I absolutely loved it. My hair had not been cut in over a year. I went in with my hair just washed and he dried it before doing the cut. He thinned out my hair quite a bit and gave me a cut that is both stylish and manageable. He took the time to curl it using a flat iron and it looked amazing before I left the salon. The curl fell out almost immediately after leaving but it was a very windy day in SF and my hair is heavy and does not hold style well. More...

They did an awesome job and work as a team. Also, it is nice to be out of the Hotel and go to the salon. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt which was across the street for this salon. The salon was kind of a way to get away from the wedding day stuff.

This salon have a special for bridal package wich includes trials, hair, makeup and nail. I think this is a deal because you get the quality with a cheaper rate.
