BEST HAIR STRAIGHTENER EVER! THANKS GIACOMO!.
I am one of the hair stylists that works at Giacomo's hair salon "Frange Blue Salon" here in S.F. I am a haircutting, color and highlight specialist and for 5 years did the Japanese hair straightening on my own clients. Every time I did the service on one of my clients they were amazed at the outcome, one even cried she was so happy! After having this Brazilian hair treatment done to my hair, I now know what my own clients experienced after their hair was trasformed! Giacomo just did the Brazilian hair keratin treatment on my hair (I have the type of hair that gets bigger not longer) every time I would try to grow my hair out longer, my own hair texture (thick and wavy) reminded me that that wouldn't be a possibility for me. Up until yesterday! Giacomo (the owner of Frange Blue Salon, along with his partner Miguel) did the amazing "Brazilian hair treatment" on my hair, now not only do I have the straight, deflated (non-volumous) hair I always wanted, but my hair looks and feels healthy not dry like straw! My hair is shiny, and length-wise is right about to my shirt collar. THANK YOU GIACOMO! This AMAZING stylist has been in the industry 40+ years, he is a true hair veteran that can work with ALL types of hair, (Giacomo specializes in hair extensions, and does the Brazilian hair straightening treatments as well) I as a fellow hairstylist respect and admire Giacomo's abilities! (We hairstylists are hard to please and I know myself I am extremely picky when it comes to my own hair!) Giacomo fullfilled my every expectation. Giacomo I LOVE my hair! So ladies (and guys....who have big hair and want straight, non 80's looking hair) don't walk, RUN to see Giacomo to let him work his AMAZING talent on you as well!

The best mens cut in SF!.
Hey guys, here's a secret - the best cut and style in San Francisco in one of the coolest salons in town is happening @ Frange Blue - in expert hands of stylist Dorothy DeVere.
I am not inclined to write reviews - matter of fact, this is my first review on YELP, but I just have to tell everyone about my "find" in down town SF. Frange Blue is terrific hair salon and Dorothy DeVere is, hands down, the best hair stylist I have ever had cut my hair.
My idea of a perfect cut is one that I can wash, brush and walk to work and know my hair will look good. A cut that works with the way my hair grows that will keep on looking good for weeks. I want a cut that I can be confident that I can run out of the gym to dinner knowing I will look like I just stepped out of a Salon, not the electric chair.
After the first cut from Dorothy DeVere, I knew it was a great cut. The next morning - the shower, towel dry and brush confirmed it. . That was before everyone in the office told me what I knew, I had just gotten a great cut. Been going for a year now. If you can get on her schedule, I suggest you do so.
Frange Blue is great salon with great management, electric atmosphere and one fantastic stylist in Dorothy DeVere.
Highly and wildly recommended.
Quandi is the best!. Quandi's fingers are truly magical. I always feel like a Queen after a visit to Quandi but I look like a Princess because we all know Princesses are younger than Queens. :) I would never let anyone else touch my hair. I can't recommend Quandi enough!
Doris is consistently great.
I've been depending upon Doris for years and she always makes sure I look my best. I have a very eractic schedule but she's there when I need her.
I swore I would go gray naturally but Doris showed me that the right color, done well can be a huge plus. I'll never go back to mousey brown!!
Kwandee is the best !.
I've been going to Kwandee for color and hair cuts for the past 6 years and I couldn't be happier with his professionalism and his ability to give me just the right cut. I've been going gray for a while now and I found it hard to cover up the gray without my hair looking too dark. Kwandee mixes my color in a way that is so natural looking that I've had friends comment on how young I look!
My daughter, who is in her thirties, goes to him for color and cuts also and loves the look he gives her. We both consider him a good friend and enjoy talking and visiting with him - he's a great listener.
I highly recommend Kwandee for anyone of any age who wants to leave the salon looking and feeling terrific!
Kwandee is the Man!.
I walked in to Frange Blue Salon expecting it to be tiny, considering the location. But it is extremely spacious and airy. The staff was smiling and joking with one another. Then after about a minute or so, Kwandee greeted me and offered coffee, tea, wine or water to drink. Quite a selection!
Which was really cool, considering I've been given water from a cooler in a printed dixie cup at nice salons. The shampoo was luxurious and smelled great. Kwandee gave me an excellent neck message while I got shampooed and made me feel totally relaxed. I enjoy long shampoos, because then your hair feels especially voluminous and clean!
He was very professional and yet at the same time care free, funny , thoughtful and a great conversationalist. I didn't exactly have a concrete idea in mind for my haircut but he talked me through it (asking me what I like, how I part my hair etc.)and I ended up satisfied with ma "do".
I made an appointment for color next week and I am very excited. I personally think it's important to trust your hairdresser, and to feel confident in their artistic vision and ability. I like Kwandee a lot! And I would recommend him to a friend for sure. (as long as it never interferes with my appointments! lol )
Korina has sick style. Korina is such a sweetheart. I usually know how I want my hair cut but she often comes up with cool ideas for me to think about and/or try. She makes sitting in that chair (normally hard for me to sit still for very long) and funny and pleasurable experience. A great conservationist and funny as hell, she has all the cosmetology talent to match her personality. Taking her time to make sure me and my friends are happy with the results I have never known anyone to walk away with out a big smile on their face.
Korina transforms Platinum Bombshell to Brunette Beauty!!!. I was daring enough to enter the world as a platinum blonde (think Gwen Stefani), around 2 years ago. As you know, if you have been any form of blonde, the bleach and or invasive color process can be quite damaging, even to the strongest thickest hair. When I decided to rejoin team brunette, I was fortunate enough to have Korina take me there. The journey through was not a short nor sweet process, however she took the time that was necessary to execute each step in the process to ensure not only the integrity of my hair, but the finished result looking amazing on the first try! Just to prep and give a tiny bit of information about bleached blonde hair; the color pigment in the hair has been completely removed over several bleach applications which makes it EXTREMELY difficult for any color added to that hair to take. It is VERY important to fill the hair with the underlying pigment so that when placing the desired color onto the hair, will in fact turn out what you had intended it to. Korina, without hesitation, made the effort to take this extra step, and because of that, I was able to walk out of that salon confident and pleased with my new look. This is not always the case, for if the steps are not carefully assessed and executed, there is a lot that can go wrong. If you are anything like me, you are doing your research to ensure that you can get the best possible service, from the most qualified professional possible. That being said, I encourage you to schedule a consultation with Korina as soon as possible! We all know how hard it is to find "the one", that's right, it is THAT serious when it comes to our hair, that girl is Korina!
Korina is Fabulous!!!!.
Korina has been doing my hair for awhile now and she is amazing!!!! I am a platinum blonde who has been to God knows how many stylists, and none of them have been able to get it right. I also have very curly, frizzy hair which is scary for me because I'm always worried about these hair stylists, #1 frying my hair, and #2 breaking it off after they try and smooth it out for me.
Korina has my color down! It is the perfect shade of blonde, the blonde I've always wanted!!! Absolutely no yellowy or gold hues (which I can't STAND) in my hair. I'm not quite sure what product she uses, but she uses it well. I get SO many compliments on my hair it's unbelievable!
My hair is also in excellent condition. Korina often spends the extra time (even if she has a client after me) putting a deep conditioner on my hair to keep it strong and healthy.
I like to keep my hair long and Korina knows that but still insists on taking off those split ends which I totally need! I usually get nervous about stylists taking off too much length, but Korina is amazing at really listening to what YOU want while offering stylish suggestions that fit your style and the latest. She recently cut some beautiful longer layers in my hair.
My hair is very hard to style because it is so frizzy and curly but Korina really knows what she's doing. I think it is because she said that her hair texture is similar to mine as well. She is able to get it so smooth and silky somehow and it really lasts! I love how she styles my hair so much that I actually come in once a week to have her do it...seriously. I don't even wash it at home anymore because I can't (nor do I have the patience) quite get it as perfect as she makes it. Also, I must be honest, I like coming in to Frange Blue Salon to chat with her too. She is really sweet, pretty, stylish, and has great uplifting energy. Korina always has a smile on her face no matter what!
Korina is simply Fabulous!! Don't know what I'd do without her!
Miguel Rangel stylist extraordinare. I was fortunate to find Miguel, he is charming, most of all he doe's a fantastic job cutting and styling my hair. I have thick natural curly hair, the kind that is hard to manage, when miguel doe's my hair he styles it in a different way each time. sometime's straight, sometime's smooth curl's, it always looks good.
