Best Little Salon in SF – Being a person who is afraid of salons like most people are afraid of hospitals, I feel oddly at home at Jubilee's at 1555 California Ave. Jubilee herself is a great listener, stylist, hostess, and colorist. The terrible things (fried hair, ugly haircut, painful scalp incidents in the sink) that can happen at other, pricier salons have NEVER happened to me at Jubilee's. A lot of high-end stylists can be frighteningly cold, ignoring your wishes and doing their worst to your facade, destroying your looks and damaging your soul. Not Jubilee! She has taken my worst nightmares, my self-inflicted hair disasters, and turned them into happy rainbows of sunshiny style! She never fails to make me smile, making me wish I had more hair to cut, so I could visit more often. She is always worth the price as the haircuts are AWESOME. Even between cuts they continue to evolve, so you never look unstylish. Three cheers for Jubilee and her beautiful crew of talented lady stylists and her friendly staff!
My Hair's Soul Mate – I am 31 years old. Jubilee is the only stylist who has ever made me 100% pleased with a haircut. She is the only stylist I would recommend to anyone for anything. Jubilee is the rare, maybe even unique, stylist that has great skill, great communication and a great personality. Can't say enough. If you want to look good and have a pleasant experience, then get your hair done by Jubilee.
A very satisfied customer... – All I can say is, I'm very happy with the colour, highlights and cut I recieved from Emily. Not having lived in San Fran for very long, I was rather nervous about seeing a new hairdresser, but I was soon at ease. The salon is pricey, but I believe that it was *very* worth it for me. I was impressed with the availability of the salon, and the friendliness of the staff. I came in not knowing exactly what I wanted, and I left with a better cut than I thought I could!! Just thought I should spread thhe good word. Thanks!!
It's the brilliance of the cut! – I have been going to Jubilee for years, since before she opened her own salon. At the time of my first visit, Id had the same one-length hairstyle since forever, so it was a BIG deal for me to have someone I didnt know do something quite different. Jubilees pleasant energy put me at ease, and the resulting haircut was testament to her ability to listen and to her SKILL. I got so many compliments for that cut and (Im not even exaggerating here) am often complimented for my haircut since (consider that its never the same haircut). I tell people, Thank you, its the brilliance of the cut! Somehow, her haircuts look good even as my hair grows and my next appointment approaches. So I sit on a chair - she asks me what Id like, sometimes Ill look at pictures, but she and I both know that Ill end up saying something along the lines of do what you want - and let her do her thing. I can put my hair in her hands, confident in her skill (she is constantly honing her craft) and that she gets me. The bottom line is I trust my hairstylist - and that says a lot! Continued success Jubilee!
Disappointing – I felt compelled to write a review of this salon, since I booked an appointment based on the good reviews here. Unfortunately I did not find the experience positive.
The initial consultation went well and I felt confident. Alas my haircut and color did not go as planned. The color was not what I explicitly asked for; although the stylist tried to correct her error I was left with dry, damaged hair as a result of over-processing. I later discovered my top was also ruined with hair dye stains down the back. The haircut itself was, again, not what we discussed. I hated it! When it came time to pay I didnt argue (despite the very steep cost, which seems to be more a reflection of expensive premises than good haircuts), I was so upset, I just wanted to get out of there as fast as possible.
Great Place!! – I loved this place!! I don't know why a lot of stylists find it hard to do a softly layered cut, I found it hard to find a new salon to go to after my stylist moved out of town. But he stylist, Krissi, was very attentive and skilled. That apmosphere was serene and welcoming. I am more pleased with my haircut than ever. I suggest Krissi or Jubilee herself. Worth every penny!!
I can be anyone with Jubilee!!!!! – Hi,
As a stunt action double for some of the biggest names in showbiz, its important that my look resemble those who I take a hit for, a karate chop to the neck, that sort of thing. So I go into Jubilee's and I walk out Brad Pitt or Bruce Lee, depends on my schedule. This place is amazing, once she actually helped me pull me off a double for Martin Lawrence, in no time flat!
A hairstyle for me – After a terrible cut, my boyfriend had me see Jubilee, who offered a consultation (the terrible stylist did EXACTLY what I asked her not to do, so I was glad to start with just a talk session). When I arrived, I watched Jubilee polish off a unique cut on a woman with out there style - creative and great attention to detail! Then Jubilee spent a long time playing with my hair and talking. She listened well, asked questions, and made excellent suggestions. I was eager to have Jubilee fix my hair, so she called her next client to ask if she could come late (thanks to the woman who agreed!). Not only was Jubilee's technique top notch, I was impressed when she spent another 20 minutes giving styling tips: not just selling product, but helping me make the most of my new 'do. Great all-over experience!
