Amazing job on my fried hair.
I have very thin fine hair that doesn't grow and everytime I go to a stylist (usually only when its been fried) they don't listen to me and cut my hair off - leaving me unhappy with short hair for a long time to come. When my hair became badly damaged from coloring I spent and months and months agonizing about going to a stylist because I was afraid of having it butchered against my wishes again. After an exhaustive online search, I made an appt. with Jason Richard during a business trip to San Francisco. By the time I got to him I had severely damaged, two-toned hair. He took the time to listen to my concerns and took me seriously when I told him I absolutely did not want short hair! He was great about making sure that I was comfortable with everything he was doing before he did it and spent a great deal of time cutting, treating, and highlighting my hair.
The reults were amazing! His expert highlighting technique coupled with his care and concern for my wishes have made him invaluable to me. I have had so many bad experiences with stylists before now that I only saw one when I was desperate to fix something. Now, not only will I make the 700 mile trip to see him when I need my highlights done, I tell everyone I know who goes anywhere near San Francisco to find the time to make an appointment with him. I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone!!

Curly hair? This guy is your best friend. I have naturally curly hair and have found it very difficult to get a great cut--ANYWHERE. After trying to grow it out for the last couple of years, I decided to just chop it because I didn't want another bad, "long" curly hair cut. I went online one night and read as many reviews as possible, and decided to try Jason at "Wicked Salon." He had phenomenal reviews, and a lot of them. He responded to my email the next day, and I went in with the intention of chopping my curls off. However, he talked to me about cuts, angles, products, and care, and I left with long, beautiful locks that make me look my age (26, not an aging hippy). I highly recommend Jason-- he was focused, attentive, listened to what I had to say about my hair, did not rush, and even offered to cut more off if I didn't like the long cut. I felt taken care of with him. If you have curls and hate the way most people cut them (which is always too short), try going to Jason. He rocks.
My new favorite hairdresser!!!.
I was in serious need of a new 'do but I know less than nothing about hairstyles. I gave him the basics of what I wanted (bangs, angles, shorter length) and then he worked his magic. When it came to my bangs, he cut them long and then gradually shortened them twice after asking me each time if I wanted to go shorter to make sure he wasnt cutting them shorter than I wanted. He's a great communicator and listens to what I want before stating what he thinks...and what he thinks is always right! I trust him very much, even though I've only been to him twice, but the first time I went he stopped me from making a bad decision...once again, because I know nothing about hair.
Unfortuneately, I'm moving so I may not be able to go to him again, but he even recommended a hairdresser where I'm moving to! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a new stylist and needs someone who knows what they're doing and who they can trust. Jason is awesome and I couldn't be happier with my new cut! Go to him!!!
I thought my hair was great before, now it is amazing! I swear this guy is for real.. I just moved to SFfrom LA, and althought I hate leaving my colorist in Bev. Hills, that's an expensive commute. So not knowing anyone, I went to citysearch and decided to take my chances with Jason (considering he had 27 outstanding reviews). Jason listened to what I wanted and my concerns, and he tells you what he's doing as he does it. I am so pleased with the coloring and highlights Jason did, my hair looks incredible, it has depth, color and looks very natural. I love my guy in beverly hills, but I'm staying with Jason, he's definitely a one-of-a-kind genius (not to mention he has a great personality and is easy to talk to).
highly recomended. On my first visit to san francisco, I really wanted to get my hair done ,and jason's revews were right on. He's extremely down to earth, very good at what he does,and fun. that combination is pretty hard to find. Highly recomemded.If I ever make it back to san francisco I will definately look him up again.
The Best Cut for My Curly Hair.
I found Jason Richard via this site about 8 months ago--when I first moved here. I was desperate for a haircut but Nervous, Nervous to let a stranger touch my curly hair! Not only has he consistently done a fabulous job, he has a real tangible conversation with me each time (not just during the first consult) before he gets started about what we want to do. I've never seen anything like it; he knows what he's doing and knows the value of explaining his thoughts in advance--at least it's more concrete and in more detail than I've ever encountered. I've never been happier with the results. And his new salon space rocks.
If I had to complain in some way about his business what would I say? That I think he might not be charging enough for what he's doing...(don't tell him I said that!)

The Answer To My Hair Prayers.
The first year I lived in San Francisco I wandered from stylist to stylist unhappy and badly coiffed. Then I found Jason Richard. His background is very similar to the fabulous stylist I had in Chicago-- highly respected with a ton of editorial work and a mention in Allure's Best of Beauty issue. Given this CV I knew he would be a gifted stylist. The wonderful surprise is that he is calm, low-key and very charming. A session with him leaves my curly hair looking great and my nerves soothed. His cuts are excellent, with precise details that result in soft lines. He has blown my hair out straight and styled it curly and I could have gone straight out on the town either way.
The salon has a great, laid-back vibe that is sort of the antithesis of an overwrought salon. Everyone seems very dedicated to doing great hair rather than getting caught up in a lot of drama. I'm looking forward to going again soon-- I think it may be time for some highlights.
Jason Richard is the Best!. As a former hairstylist and haircolorist from Dallas, I know when a stylist knows what they're doing or not. With this said, I've been a loyal client of Jason Richard for 10 years and am thankful to say that I have never been disappointed with his ability or instinct when I request that he "make me beautiful!" Jason Richard has successfully managed my premature gray and made me shine with both color and cut. He works his magic and gives me that special confidence and attitude that come with knowing you look your best and then some. I highly recommend him as a consummate professional, great friend, and artistic genius. He's the most naturally talented stylist and colorist I've ever witnessed, and I've seen a lot.
