Fabulous Hair by Heather 1/13/2009

Heather has been coloring and cutting my hair for over eight years now--perhaps even longer. I have followed her around the City, and am glad she's back at Stephen Saiz--I like the salon and the downtown location. Heather does the best blond I've seen--my hair ends up an amazing, natural-looking shade (""butter blond"" as she calls it), with wonderful texture. She also gives great cuts--the style is always very current, but never too extreme (I work in a corporate setting, and I have to try to look ""professional"" so the men take me seriously), although I know she can do other styles--she gave my skateboarding son a great cut, also. She usually gets me in and out of there very fast, which I love. I have referred friends to her who have also become loyal clients. Finally, it's always such a pleasure to see Heather--she's funny and friendly, and I've really enjoyed getting to know her over the years. Pros: Nice salon, nice people, downtown location more

Noushin is a great hairstylist that knows what she is doing. 12/27/2008

Noushin is a wonderful hairstylist. I started going to her at Level 4 Salon and have since moved with her to her new salon. She is an amazing hairstylist and is consistently good. She is dependable in that your hair will look the same every time. She also does an excellent job of making you feel comfortable. It will be a truly enjoyable experience. She is very present in her hair cuts and so creates a trusting relationship. I look forward to getting my hair cut. She is also very fun to talk to, understanding, and non judgmental. She instantly knows what will work for you and picks up on who you are in order to create a look that will work for you and your lifestyle. more

Makes my day 10/1/2008

I had the great fortune to first meet Stephen over 25 years ago when he was at Fabulous Faces, and made the move over to Features when he, Dwight and a couple friends opened their own shop. My hair color and cut is always very natural looking and I've received many compliments through the years. I tried another salon once about 20 years ago and regretted it immediately. Stephen quickly got my hair back on track. Dwight has also done some stunning ""up"" hairstyles for me for special occasions when Stephen was booked. My only problem is remembering to book my appointment ahead of time, because he is so popular. Stephen is not only my hairstylist, he's become a friend, and has often stayed late or changed his schedule to accommodate me. I always feel great when I walk out of the Stephen Saiz Salon. The location is extremely convenient as well.\r Pros: 2 blocks to Sutter Stockton & Union St. & many restaurants & shops more

Different strokes for different folks :-( 8/22/2008

My personal experience at this salon was very substandard. It was not as top notch as you would expect for the outrageous price they charge to cut and color. The salon smelled like dogs, which by the way use the salon as their private restroom. The stylists were so busy arguing with eachother that they failed to pay attention to the time that my highlights had been processing, leaving me with a mediocre Supercuts new do! I will name no names...but take heed to this salon and the various outstanding reviews. Scam artists do exist, yes, but beware of salons writing their own reviews to attract clients. Then again, what is good for one client is not necessarily right for another. Use caution and good judgement when considering who's hands you are putting your personal appearance into. After all, you are the one that has to walk around looking that way when you leave. more

Stephen is in a class all by himself. 8/20/2008

I have followed Stephen Saiz around San Francisco for - well, let's just say, more than 20 years. Even when I moved to FL for a while every trip back to the city included time with Stephen. The disappointing thing was that others could not replicate his artistry even after receiving detailed instruction and step-by-step pictures of what he had done. The man's a true artist. \r \r Now that I'm back in the bay area I'm relieved to have Stephen back in control of the many cutting implements and color he uses on my hair. I travel all over the country and strangers have stopped me many times (no, not in bars when fueled by adult beverages!) to comment on how great my hair looks. I've always known he is a genius but it's nice to have stylists in other parts of the country ask me who does my hair because the cut or color is extraordinary.\r \r He is the only person I've ever trusted enough to say ""do whatever you think is best."" Everyone should experience this once in their lives - it's quite the rush. You will walk out of there looking magnificent. more

Heather at Stephen Saiz 8/19/2008

Heather has been my stylist for about 6 years, I always look forward to our monthly appointments. She is a colorist extraordinaire, no one even knows I'm going gray! Not only do I walk out looking great but Heather keeps me entertained the whole time. Oh and when she washes my hair it feels great, I have had some less the gentle experiences in the past. Pros: Heather, Great staff, color Cons: I don't love going downtown more

Heather Watkins 8/17/2008

I have to say, I recently got the best hair cut and color from Miss Heather Watkins at Steven Saiz Salon and I am not only impressed by her talent and professionalism, but also her warm and friendly personality and unique flare! I usually don't feel very comfortable at some of these more upscale salons downtown, but I will continue to go to Heather forever!! She was recommended to me by a trusted friend and Heather's miracle work on my (stubborn) hair has made me a client for life. Thank you Steven Saiz Salon for having such a talented stylist at your business, she is truly Shear Genius! more

Stephen Saiz 8/17/2008

This is a beautiful salon with tons of natural lighting a few floors up from the busy streets of San Francisco. However, my first experience was a little rocky. My stylist Alex's work was not up to par. Given, everyone has a bad day/week I will not be giving him a second chance. Steven, the owner of the salon has refunded my money and was sincerely apologetic about the way my situation was handled. I have heard that he and Dwight are amazing with hair, as was my Mom's stylist Nooshin. If I were closer I would consider trying another stylist. \r more

Very skilled 8/12/2008

I recently got my hair cut by Stephen and I can honestly say it was the best cut I have ever received. I am fairly certain that he could cut my hair with a knife and fork and do a great job. I have always had a strange fascination with the craft of styling hair and was very impressed with the skill Stephen exhibited. I have been told I have difficult cowlicks, but somehow Stephen managed to tame them. \r \r I am pretty finicky about my hair but after a great consultation I felt like I was listened to and was in great hands. The staff was warm and accommodating and the atmosphere relaxing. I might have found the only person who I will let cut my hair! \r \r I don't know much about the other stylists but Stephen seemed like a real pro owner so I would venture a guess that he hires talented people. I will be recommending this salon to my friends. more

Noushin at Stephen Saiz ...Simply Superb 7/30/2008

\r I drive from Santa Rosa to Stephen Saiz Salon every three to four weeks to see my favorite stylist, Noushin... she's worth it! Noushin not only listens to what you have to say, she HEARS you! And she gives expert advice. She is meticulous in cutting hair and takes her time until she is satisfied that every strand is just so. My haircut is very precise with lots of texture and it grows out beautifully from cut to cut. She is always on time and I have never felt rushed. Everyone I have met is welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere here is mello, and the music is fun. I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Stephen Saiz Salon and, especially, Noushin.

Stephen Saiz salon...a cut above all the rest. WAY above!!! 7/30/2008

When I moved to San Francisco (after a tearful goodbye to my hairdresser of over 10 years) I just resigned myself to the fact that I would never be happy again with my hair...ever! Then I met Stephen and OMG I thought I died and went to hair heaven...literally!! I never knew what a good cut was until he worked his magic. And, make no mistake, magic it is. The man is a flat out miracle worker. Simple as that. Not to mention, sweet, funny, charming, compassionate...beautiful, inside and out. An artistic aficionado of the highest order. Absolutely NOT to be missed. Sometimes I'll schedule a quick trim just to add a few lovely moments to my day and because no matter what else is going on, I always leave Stephen Saiz salon feeling better. Always. In fact, I feel better the moment I walk through those doors. From Hope, whose smile and warmth could brighten anyone's day...always friendly, always willing to take time to listen and help, no matter how busy she is...to Cece, whose kindness and knowledge of their extensive array of products never steers me wrong...to Dwight ,whose always there to offer honest input (and humor) or jump in on the assist whenever he can. What more can I say? Happy hair, happy life. It's SO SO worth it!! ~lanie more

Heather is amazing! 7/29/2008

I love this salon. My hairstylist for the past 6 years, Miss Heather Watkins, just started here again. Everyone was so incredibly nice and the atmosphere is upscale but so comfortable. Heather did an amazing job (as usual) of trimming me up, darkening my hair and giving me awesome bangs. I can't wait to go back. Highly recommended!! Pros: Heather, nice owners, cute dogs to play with Cons: no street parking more
