A Hip Spa/ Barbershop in SF. I stumbled onto Barber Lounge during a private fashion show. A friend of mine told me to meet her there. After climbing 2 flights of stairs(I could have taken the elevator)I was greeted by a sitting area to my left, simple & clean. Windows looking out to the street below giving urban ambiance to the room. To the right, barber chairs mixed w/ eclectic stations. Though I did not get to try any services, I met the owner & he was welcoming. He made me want to try EVERYTHING! I will update this review after I test out a massage...Stay posted...
An exceptional Place !!.
An exceptional salon and especially the remarkable hairdresser Jonathan Baker.
A very dynamic team. Has to recommend without exception!!
I come from France and I never miss the opportunity to come To barber Lounge...
Best Salon and Spa EVER. I have been coming to the Barber Lounge for a long time. I have gotten amazing services from Try, Zeon, Greg, hoang, liz, jc, oscar, and lenida. Plus Louie the Dog is super cute. I love the atmosphere. It is a welcoming, unpretentious place. The front desk crew is very kind and helpful. Plus they serve free beer and wine.
Great Atmosphere - Go to Jonathan Baker!. Jonathan Baker is terrific! I've lived in the area for 8 years, and I've never found a hair stylist whose work I completely loved until Jonathan. Hands down, he's giving me the best haircuts of my life. He trained in London with Toni & Guy, going on to teach there himself and advance to the position of art director. He's done hair for fashion shows, events, and more, and he really knows how to make your cut look modern, fresh, sophisticated, European, all those good things -- without taking you beyond what will work with your personality and work/lifestyle. He's also studying fashion at the Academy of Art, so he really thinks about your haircut in terms of your overall style (and where it's headed). Plus, he's a winning conversationalist. A total delight.
Shave?. My sister-in-law works for Aveda and helped set this place up. She said to try it out when we came to SF next time. I forgot my razor so I decided to get a shave. Me and my wife tracked this place down hoping to get in. The guy receptionist made a project out of trying to set it up. Finally he found a time for like two hours later. We opted to wait. After like fifteen minutes we called and cancelled. The receptionist guy was a total b**ch to my wife. I could understand if we waited almost two hours to call, but it was like right away. He acted like we ruined their whole day. I thought that was bad service. So we went to MR in the Financial District.
Best Salon for Men and Women in San Francisco!.
This is a hip, warm and friendly place to get all of your pampering. Greg has been cutting my hair for years and I have watched him build this labor of love from the very beginning. Although the space itself is like being in a remarkable contemporary art museum, it is really the staff that make The Barber Lounge such a special place. You can feel the camaraderie the moment you arrive. I have many friends who go to the other talented barbers and stylists; each has his or her own following and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them.
My first manicure and pedicure were at The Barber Lounge, and I can highly recommend both Mi Won and Hoang. I am trying to convince my male friends of the importance of this kind of grooming...and it is simply another relaxing way to get pampered.
I regularly get massages, and I would say the Mark Eron is the best masseur I have ever had. Mark is tall,strong, and personable and can get as deep into your aching muscles as you would like him to. He uses hot stones with his massage; the extra heat really allows the muscles to relax. Don't miss this experience!
Fabulous service and ambiance!. It is always a treat going to the Barber Lounge with their great service, cool ambiance, and friendly front staff. I always leave feeling very relaxed (added bonus) and looking great with a fantastic cut and color!
Wouldn't go anywhere else. The Barber Lounge is the place.. I've been going to Greg for almost 10 years now, and even after moving to Texas, treat myself to a haircut with him every time I come back to the Bay Area. Anything else feels like cheating, and it's definitely never as satisfying. Now that he's opened the Barber Lounge, the whole experience is even that much better. Everything I could want (pedicure & facial!) under one roof. A one-stop shop at it's finest. And the space is gorgeous, spacious yet cozy, and the staff I've encountered so far have all been friendly and welcoming. You can't help but love it.
Classic barbershop meets urban salon and day spa in a loft-like SoMa space..
There's a little something for everyone at this light-filled destination. Hardwood floors and faux wood-grain details mix with stainless-steel fixtures and retro-inspired furnishings to create a space with equal appeal for guys and dolls. Dudes sink into old school chairs for hot-towel shaves, while ladies choose among a bevy of cut, color and styling options. Facials, mani-pedis, massage, body treatments and spray tanning offer pampering for both genders.
Awesome shave experience.. From the time you arrive, every comfort is provided. I was greeted by Greg, offered coffee, and invited to sit on the soft leather couch and red magazines until my appointment with Kurt. Everything about the shave was both satisfying and decadent. Kurt provided an excellent shave, very attentive and extremely thorough. He first trimmed my beard with an electric shaver, and then sculpted the edges free-hand. He followed with an excellent face massage, then hot towel wraps to soften and relax my neglected neck, and two straight razor shaves. Nothing was rushed. The results are excellent. The experience was everything that I expected, and hoped it would be.
