Kat is the best hairstylist in the land!.
I started going to Kat a little over a year ago and don't think I could ever leave her. Not only does she take her time when cutting and styling, but she also has such insight as to know how you will look before she even makes the first cut! I feel like, before meeting Kat, I always had to give up the awesome cut that I could style really well on my own or the awesome style after the cut..but with Kat she does both so well that if I had the time and money, I'd go to her every day to style my hair!
She really understands hair and more than that, she is a great listener and only wants the customer to be happy. She's creative and fun! And she is totally adorable!! If you are going to spend a lot of time at a hair salon, Kat will definitely make your stay enjoyable!
Oh and John Brody Salon is really beautiful inside..with flattering full-length mirrors and without that horrible florescent lighting that makes us all look washed out! Everyone at JB is really nice and it just seems like a very laid-back environment. I always feel welcome and attended to!
JOHN'S LUCKY TO HAVE KAT. Kat is the BEST!!! She is willing to take the time to make sure you are FABULOUS!! My perm (yes...perm) took longer than expected..so she asked all her other appointments to come in later...now that's something!! I would go where ever she is!!! She's the BOMB!!!
John Brody Salon makes me feel like a rock star!.
I am so glad I found her. Moving to a new city you never know where to start when you are looking for a salon. I've been here 6 years now and have gone through a few hair stylists. Kat not only sets your mind as ease with her bubbly personality but is highly entertaining throughout the whole hair cut. Everyone is so nice and welcoming there. I always leave feeling all dolled up and refreshed. I highly recommend a trip to John Brody Salon.
Best Cuts and Treatments!. I've been seeing Ryan long before he became one of the partners at John Brody Salon simply because he is a great stylist. I have fine, thin hair and he is one of the only stylists I've ever had that truly know how to give me the best cut. I've been getting color services from him for many years also and his instincts are always spot on. It's been great to see his success grow over the years with the culmination being his own salon on Market St. in the Castro. The new line of Bumble and Bumble spa quality treatment products are fantastic for tresses that see a lot of processing and I love the scalp treatment with tea tree oil! I bought some of the products to use at home and I love them! Thank you Ryan and I wish you much more success and growth in the years to come! --Kathryn M.
The BEST CUT and COLOR of my life!!!. Ryan Brody has been my stylist since 1998 when I lived in West Hollywood. Since then, I?ve followed him where ever he goes. If it means I have to fly from LA or NY to have my hair done by him, I have, and always will - because Ryan has given me the BEST CUTS and COLORS of my life!! When I leave his attentive care, I can?t help but feel like the sexiest, hottest woman on the planet. After each appointment, everyone always comments on how amazing my hair looks, and how amazing I look - probably because I can't stop smiling. I feel sooo good when I leave Ryan?s magical chair. His recent color/cut job is stunning! Each style has always exemplified me at any given point in my life. Ryan totally understands how a simple change in hairstyle or color can immeasurably boost your confidence, re-direct your focus, and give you power. I go to Ryan because this kind of therapy is mind-blowing...Ryan?s talent goes beyond the scissors and color brush. He has a vision that?s unmatched in this field!
The best hair salon....ever!.
Ryan Brody is one of the owners and a stylist's at the John Brody salon. He is also my brother. You might be thinking how can I be unbiased and it's true, I can't, but when talking about how amazing an experience with any one of the stylists (including him) can be at this wonderful salon, I think I can be. You see Ryan has been cutting my hair ever since he was in school, and I saw the passion even way back then. I knew he would be great at this cause it's what he loves to do. I've seen him transform himself over the years to not only some one that loves to cut hair, but some one that cares about what he does. He cares about his clients happiness, he cares about the importance of education for his stylist's and his clients, he cares about the future of the salon and those who share the same vision as he does.
I think that Ryan is an amazing stylist and an amazing person/brother. He has created an environment that is sheik, comfortable, affordable and a place where he will alway's make you feel pretty. I alway's recommend friends to him and like myself, everyone LOVES the "magic" he works.
Done Searching this City... John Brody Salon is the Place.. I'll be the first to admit, my hair care is not complex or sophisticated. My hair cut is short and relatively simple, but even so, going to the right place makes a big difference. I've been treating myself by going to the John Brody Salon since it opened. Ryan Brody and his team of stylists have created a relaxed, welcoming and friendly salon. The place is spacious, flooded with natural light and is very comfortable. Don't mistake the atmosphere for a lack of professionalism. Although Ryan is my stylist, I have gotten cuts from other John Brody stylists and they all are highly experienced, well trained and do a great job. All this and they are conveniently located near the Castro Muni stop. I've even recommended John Brody to work colleagues, which I never do, and they have been going ever since. The John Brody Salon is the perfect combination of right environment, right talent, and right location. I'm done searching this city... John Brody Salon is the place.
Highlights! Highlights! Highlights!. Ryan knows what it takes to make a girl happy. He knows color, he knows style, he knows good conversation, and he knows what looks hot. He put the most amazing blond highlights in my hair. I have never gotten my brown hair to such a beautiful shade of blond before. He's got great skills. And he does my friend Emma's hair too. OMG. The most amazing blond/red/brown highlighted head of hair you have ever seen.
Ryan Brody will make you feel fabulous beyond your wildest dreams!!.
I have been having my hair cut and colored by Ryan for 5 years now and have followed him to every salon he's worked at because yes, he is THAT good. I was overjoyed when a few years ago he was able to open his own salon and since then have watched it blossom into the success it is today. Ladies, this is the Castro's best kept secret. The salon itself is beautiful with big open windows and high ceilings, lots of open space, and best of all- wine or coffee to sip on while you enjoy your hair experience.
Ryan is an incredibly versatile stylist with both his cuts and color and is a great person to talk to if you aren't sure what direction to go in. While I've always had some idea in mind when I've come to him, he's helped me develop it through step by step communication and really learning me well as a person. Every time I walk out of the salon, I feel like a model, radiant and glowing as I bounce down the street through the rest of my day. Even though it's a luxury that I sometimes can't afford, it is well worth it to have him as my stylist! Since having him do my highlights, I have never gotten more compliments from total strangers and as a result know it's not just my great opinion of his work- it's everyone's.
If you are looking to brighten up your style and try something different or just feel like you might like something "more" than what you get from your usual stylist, I highly recommend this place. While Ryan is my main stylist, I have also had my hair done by Stephanie as well, who is just as fabulous and was a pleasure to meet when this salon opened. She is incredible with both fun haircuts and gorgeous color as well.
Great atmosphere, very professional. John Brody Salon is a salon right in the heart of the Castro on Market Street. It's a bright space with high ceilings. Ryan (the owner) is a fabulous stylist and inspires confidence. They take good care of their customers, and even give complimentary 'clean ups' between your regular appointments.
