So I haven't been to a proper hair stylist since my friend started cutting my hair 2 years ago (he's not a hairstylist, he's a sculptor). I think I'm ready to take the plunge and search for a new hair stylist but I'm not sure where to go. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm sure this subject has come up on DCF in the past but I need some updated insight. I would greatly appreciate it!
My wife who is VERY picky about her hair because she has a lot, it is thick and curly goes to David at Square Root.
I've been delighted with Gambei, which is now on Lomas near 10th. Both my mother and I go to Nicole there. It's a gorgeous setting inside, too.
yeah, I live a few blocks from them so they are definitely high on my list of possibilities
I see a woman named Nicole at Alchemy, on Menaul, who specializes in shorter cuts, like bobs and pixies. I also used to go to Jessica, who owns Shag and she was fantastic (though pricey).
Alex at Salon Helena is fantastic.
I had great luck with Kayla at Heart and Soul on Central in Nob Hill
I recommend any Aveda salon, especially Proteges on Juan Tabo which is a bit less expensive but still has great stylists who are gaining experience after completing their schooling.
Mick at Waves on Central in EDo is quite good! I really like the way he cut and styled my hair. He has recently moved here from the Bay Area of CA. I do not think it will take him long to establish himself!
