Sold my soul for Shab's hairstyling and rock n' roll 11/27/2007

I moved to SF from Indiana thinking it would have been easy to find a good stylist, but was seriously mislead and was seemingly heading down all the darkest alleys in the city or something like that looking to cop a good haircut. It took me several salons, stylists and near death experiences ?til I stumbled across Shab on a whim while remembering a tip on a salon in the Castro from my roommate. The receptionist said Shab had an opening, so I rolled the dice and rolled 7, 11, and the rest is history. I went away with easily the best service and haircut I have had in the two years since I have been here?not to mention she is stunning and super personable, which is always a plus. I have since followed her to Willow and have every attention on following her all down the line when I need a fix. She always keeps me looking like rock n' roll royalty. She truly rocks and rolls and will help give your hair the swagger it needs. Aside from my top notch experience with Shab, the rest of the Willow staff also seemed exceptional. The salon was super rad, clean, had great products, and even gives you complimentary teas in enough variety to suite every need. So check out Shab and Willow for sure, just make sure to tip her well damn it because she will totally deserve it more

get ready to get pampered! 11/29/2006

I recently went in to willow salon for a manicure and pedicure..cuz yay they have a manicurist now!! I've been into many salons in the city to get my nails done, and am usually rushed through the whole thing. Fannie at willow was very sweet. she took her time and added little extras like rose petals and fragrant oils in the water and gave me a foot massage that melted my stress of the week! I'll definitely be back to visit. Pros: the cookies and the tea Cons: metered parking, but they'll keep an eye on your car for you. more

Great Stylist !!! 11/16/2006

I live in L.A. and I went to San Fransico for my 40th birthday to see the Mathew Barney exibit at SFMOMA. On a whim, I decided to get a new look. I walked into the first salon I saw and asked for any available stylist. That was Gilbert. He listened to every word I said and took my curly, blonde hair to a rich, straight chocolate brown. Now, whenever I am on business trips in S.F. I always set a day aside for Gilbert to do my touch ups !!! more

Best service and cut 9/6/2006

Eduardo is the person you must see at Willow. He actually listens to what you want and treats your hair with care. I have stubbornly wavy Asian hair but he manages to give me the best cut and shine in the neighborhood since my move from LA (and I've tried all the salons near Union Square). Eduardo you are the best! Pros: service/value Cons: lukewarm green tea more

consistent and on-time! 6/19/2006

Seems like all stylists are consistent and on-time. Sarah is my stylist - friends and strangers always comment on my color. She's effective with her time when you're in the chair, and she is always on time- an important thing to most all of us! Most of my friends are going to Sarah now and are so happy with their hair as well! more

Good times 6/14/2006

I went to go get my nails done at this great salon because now they have a nail person, and she was great, I got a gel over lay on my nails and a spa pedicure. She took her time which was a nice relief, since my life is so busy. I went to Zaza nail spa and I really didn't like it so I tried Willow and it was the experience that I was looking for. I'am sooo happy they have a nail person, because now I can walk down the street. more

Willow Rocks 5/10/2006

I have been going to Willow for 2 years and finally decided to give it a shout out!. I have tried almost everyone at the Salon and have never been disappointed. I color my hair and even though I changed stylists I have always had consistent results. The service is excellent and every one is super sweet. Love the calm atmosphere. Thanks Sarah and Veronica!! Pros: easy parking, customer service more

Lovely Tranquil Spot 1/17/2006

I have been going off and on for a couple years. Alain is fabulous highly recommend. Pros: atmosphere more

Veronica rules 1/4/2006

I followed Veronia from another salon in the City, and am very happy to find that the ambience at Willow is so cozy and warm--the salon I went to previously was fine, but was rather minimalist, black furniture, track lighting--not warm and cozy and comfy! Veronia is the best hair stylist I've found in 10 years in SF, and because she is also very funny and down to earth, while also being hip and young and the possessor of Beautiful Eyes, it's always a good experience to have my hair cut by her. more

My Hair found its home at Willow. 8/15/2005

My hair found its home at Willow salon with Christopher and Connie. I was loyal to a wonderful talented stylist for over 10 years before I had to move away. I have been lost and wandering since, trying to find someone who compares. Since my cut from Christopher and color from Connie, I have people on the street constantly asking me where I get my hair done...yes they are that good at what they do. Connie is great at matching skin tones for color and bringing out the best in your hair, or better. Christopher is a perfectionist that takes his time and listens to your input as well as provides you some of his own as to what will work with your hair. They are the best hair team a girl could ask for. Looks like I've found my new stylists! Pros: Creativity, Up on Styles, Friendly Cons: Challlenging parking, outside bathroom more

User review by rbutlersf 8/15/2005

Christopher is great for men's hair cuts! While discussing the style I wanted, he offered suggestions on how to make the style work best with the shape of my face. Several times, I have told him to do what he thinks would look best and I have never been disappointed. Pros: product knowledge, experienced staff Cons: Uncomfortable chairs, Lighting is too hot. more

Hair color and cut 8/8/2005

My first haircut by stylist Christopher was great. He spent time with me discussing what I wanted to do and gave me a great cut that fits my lifestyle and the look I wanted. My first color at the Salon included color and highlights. It was my first experience with getting highlights in my hair and Eduardo did a fantastic job. I have gotten nothing but great compliments on my new look! Thanks Eduardo! Pros: Personalized, Friendly, Great stylists more

this was my first visit to a salon in san francisco and i was very impressed. I was immediately greeted and given a beverage and made very comfortable. christopher, one of the stylist was very knowledgable and took the time to answer my questions, never rushed through the appointment and was SOOO sweet. My boyfriend got his hair cut there and so did my best-girlfriend. My boyfriend looks hot and so does my girl! THANKS CHRISTOPHER!!! Pros: knowledgable staff, attractive setting more

I LOVE CONNIE!!! 7/31/2005

I have been in search of an amazing hair stylist my entire life and finally found her at Willow Salon!!! Connie, the artistic director of Willow is truly gifted. She has loads of experience and still keeps up with all the latest cuts, technology and product. I continue to refer everyone I know to her including my boyfriend and she hasn't let me down. When I want something specific, she listens and executes precisely and when I tell her to be creative, she always comes up with a great look. Not to mention she knows her color and products, and can really help you find what will work for your hair. I've never felt so good about getting my hair done! Pros: never loud, serve beverages, friendly Cons: metered parking more

have a great a hair day everyday 7/29/2005

Connie is fantastic. She is always ahead of the trends, she knows your personality and needs, and I always leave feeling beautiful. Her cuts grow out great and I only need come back every 4 mos, so its a great value. She advises you on styling and products and is tons of fun on top of everything. The staff is great and there's never a wait. People stop me on the street to ask me where I get my hair done. She's that good. more

Fantastic, beautiful salon 7/29/2005

Staff was amazingly friendly and personable. Christopher took great care of me and my hair's ""personality."" He suggested a routine for my hair without pressuring me to buy any products. My haircut was personalized to the shape of my face and neck. Definitely recommended. Pros: friendly staff, beautiful atmosphere, knowledgeable stylist more

Hair cut and salon experience puts you at ease! 7/28/2005

Willow Salon provides personal and warm service from the moment you walk in. Greeted with tea biscuits and a selection of tea, coffee, and sparkling water, it is easy to lose the nerves usually associated with getting your hair cut. Christopher provided me with an excellent hair cut and sincere advice on how to care for my hair. Not only did I walk out with a spectacular cut, but the best part of it is that my hair *grows* out well - with the style keeping shape for over 2 months. Thanks Christopher! Pros: Great service, Comfortable ambience Cons: Need time more

I love Christopher and Connie! 7/18/2005

I travel all the way from New Mexico to get my hair cut and colored! I was visiting a friend in SF that recommended Christopher at Willow to me, and I have been traveling many miles to get my hair cut ever since. Christopher's attention to detail when cutting my hair is beyond any haircut that I have ever had--he looks at every strand of hair and makes sure that it is cut around my face in the most perfect and flattering way. I have also had my hair colored by Connie who did a fabulous job as well. They are professional and fun to be around which makes the whole pampering experience feel like the greatest luxury. The products that they have both recommended for my hair have made my dry hair healthy again. more
