Best Haircut Ever, every time.
Adrian Elwell always greets you with a smile and immediately tries to get you to express what you like and what you don
Great Cuts & Great Attitude! – Adrian Elwell knows his stuff! He has been cutting and styling hair in SF for as long as I can remember and everyone I've recommended to him has continued to come back for just as long! Great guy and great prices!
Great haircut – I went for a haircut in April or what he called "clean up" and have to say, it turned out to be one of the most amazing haircuts I've ever had.After the first wash I was able to style it easily without spending too much time. He listened to my concerns and was able to translate that in a wonderful cut. He is absolutly creative, skillful and an attentive listener. He knew what fits my face and goes with my hair structure. Thanks again. You have for sure a regular and happy new customer
Exceptionally talented and well priced – I've been a redhead for the past 10 years and my colour has never looked better since Adrian became my stylist. He's one of very few colourists to use Elumen, a technically tricky but brilliantly effective product that barely fades and keeps hair healthy. Adrian strikes that perfect balance of creative - to keep my style interesting and fresh - and conservative - so that it's never too outrageous for the law firm where I work.
Adrian is a painstaking perfectionist when it comes to both cuts and colour. He also makes sure to stay current on the trends and technical advances in the industry. Thankfully he's now back in SF for good and I can't recommend him highly enough!
Best Hairstylist west of the Rockies – It took many hairstylists and really bad haircuts before I finally found Adrian. When he moved to the East and only came to SF once a month to see clients, scheduling became a problem. So no Adrian, no haircut! I had actually resigned myself to having long hair which was not something I really wanted. I am so glad he moved back to SF because in the hierarchy of priorities, perfect haircuts is right up there with good food and excellent wine. Welcome back, Adrian!
Best Colorist anywhere – Not only are the colors amazing but the cuts are fantastic!!
Adrian is a wonderful person.True Professional.
great haircut! – I went to Adrian with a picture of a hairstyle that I wanted to get. He took a lot of time to go over the pictures and discuss with me the possibilities and also suggest what he thinks would work well with my face shape and hair texture. He was mindful that I wanted to have a cut that I could let airdry and would still look good. I decided to take most of his suggestions and he did a wonderful job! I have never been so impressed with a haircut or received so many compliments. Most importantly, he listened to what I wanted and offered suggestions based off that. Highly recomended!!
Adrian is a Genius Creative Chemist!!!! – I absolutely LOVE my hair!!! After a year of searching through the sea of SF salons for someone I can trust, but who can bring solid advice to the table....I have found it in Adrian!!! He is more than a hair designer....he is a chemist! He loves the chemistry of color more than any stylist I have ever met----and I have had my hair done by Bumble & Bumble NY, B2V in LA, Sebastian in LA, Garon in NY and Diapetro Todd in SF. I consider myself an expert consumer in hair! He takes small risks that make a big difference. I recommended him to my roomate and we both feel so good about our hair! He went a little darker than we expected on both of us....so bewarer of that. But, it is so worth it! Darker is something I would have never thought would have looked good and I feel my hair is the best it has looked in years. He uses very safe and vibrant colors----colors you do not fidnnd colorists in SF using often because they are expensive for him to purchase! No Wella here folks! He uses color from Schwarzkopf who create some of the richest and interesting shades I have ever seen. Plus, he is not overly expensive....ok, he is not cheap....but at least you get what you pay for amd more with Adrian! I love him!
Adrian is simply the best – Adrian is a true talent. I stumbled into a salon nearly seven years ago where Adrian was cutting hair. At the time I'd been jumping from high-end salon to high-end salon trying to find a great fit. Even though I'm a guy with short hair you'd be amazed at how particular I can be. From the minute I sat down in Adrian?s chair I had a good feeling. Adrian and I have always worked cooperatively on creating my styles. From funky to conservative he's taken my hair there in good taste. From shaved to a shaggy I know I will get a great cut that not only looks amazing when I walk out the salon door, it grows out amazingly well. His passion for hair comes through in every cut. Best of all Adrian is constantly honing his skills through classes and seminars to make sure his technique is on the cutting edge. If you are looking for a cut that is also a personal awakening I highly suggest you jump into Adrian?s chair. He has an amazing web site that is also a very easy way to book your appointment, or you can pick up the phone and get in that way.
Best hair experience in the city – Adrian is the best in San Fran. I moved here about a year ago after college and bounced around trying to find somewhere to get my hair done and I am really happy I found Adrian. His professionalism and patience along with his knowledge & experience are impressive. Before Adrian, my hair looked unnatural and brassy. He listened to what I wanted and I love my natural result. I've also gotten a great cut from him---he always takes time to make sure his job is perfect. He has a true passion for what he does and it shows as you walk out the door! He is super accessible over email and I love the online appts. Getting my hair done is a special treat I save up for and Adrian makes it totally worth it.
