I was visiting SF from Pittsburgh for Pride a few weeks ago. I always cut my own hair, and haven't been to a stylist in 7 years. I have a sort of fohawk-flock o' seagulls hairstyle, and it's very unique. I went in to Heads Up and asked if I could use their clippers and DIY, which is a CRAZY request, and of course they couldn't let me do that...but then I said, OK, well, can you trim this up? Lynn gave me the best salon haircut I have ever had. He really liked my unique hairstyle and was friendly, and chatted the whole time, but kept cutting my hair. He's a total sweetie and a really good stylist, and the price was affordable--on a Pittsburgh budget. If I'm back in SF needing help with my 'do, he's my go-to-guy. Oh, and I'm a girl. I was the only girl in there and he treated me like a queen.
Pros: Great people, excellent service, salon was clean and colorful
Cons: I walked; street parking might be spotty
