A Wonderful Stylist – I was out-of -town on business and just needed a haircut. I was assigned to Cary and had an absolutely wonderful time chatting the time away. I really love my haircut and his advice for me to "go gray" and the reasons why gave me something to seriously think about. I highly recommend Cary to anyone looking for a new stylist and anyone thinking about a change!
A great stylist, and well worth it – Cary is an excellent stylist - I've been very happy with every cut after seeing him, and more importantly it grows out well. I used to return for a cut every 4 weeks, but since going to Cary I can usually go 6+ weeks before returning to the salon. Cary is also very good at providing direction and ideas if you want it, and he has a great "chair-side" manner. I definitely highly recommend Cary to anyone trying a new stylist.
Truly Fabulous Hair – I've known Cary since he worked at Kamalaspa, and he's always been a fabulous hairstylist. My favorite things about him as a stylist and a person are that: he's sweet, he's funny, he really listens to what I want, he asks questions to clarify, and he has amazing skills to bring out the best in my hair.
I had jumped around to a few different places and realized that of all of the people who have touched my hair since I've been in SF, he was the one who was consistently good and seemed confident that he could make my hair look great.
I had had a stressful week, my birthday was nearing, and I really needed a change. I brought some photos in and explained what I needed. He really listened to me and gave me fabulous color that wasn't too damaging to my locks. He also gave me sexy bangs that totally changed my look. I keep getting compliments on my hair and I truly feel like a new person...it's pretty amazing what a really great cut and color can do for your self-esteem and outlook on life. It's totally worth it to go see Cary. He's wonderful.
Follicle glory with Cary – I have followed Cary to 3 salons over the last 2 years. This should give you some insight into how my hair feels about him.
I first found him by accident while looking for a salon in Union square about 2 years ago. Luckily, he was the only stylist working in the now defunct Kamalspa. He gave me a glamour kitten layered cut with bangs which I loved.
I stopped to going to him for awhile, because of the distance from the south bay, but after some time, I realized that he really is the only stylist in this area that I felt comfortable with and was creative enough to give me some ideas for how I want to look.
I looked him up, and found him at MNKYTHMP. He gave me a "big and sexy" hair cut with beautiful natural highlights.
Now, he's at Bibbo, and when I told him I wanted to grow out my hair, he gave me a hair cut which will help achieve this goal, as well as some advice on which products are best for this (Kerastase).
What I love most about Cary, is that he is creative, and will always give you some options for the look you are trying to create. He is also very personable and has that Southern charm that makes you feel as if he really understands your needs and will help you fulfill them.
He's a genuinely nice person and very good at what he does. There's thousands of stylists in the city, but only Cary can give you the kind of creativity and charm that will make you want to come back.
Zen and the art of hair maintenance – I was in SFO for a weekend and I needed a haircut, so I went online and found Cary on citysearch. He had many positive reviews so I went along to MKNYTHMP to try it out.
I was not disappointed. Cary is a master of his art. He loves what he does and it shows.
He's a very calm presence and fun to chat to.
I'd been getting the same haircut for years and Cary talked me into something a little bit different.... Best haircut I've had in ages. I'm only sad that I don't live in SF, otherwise I'd be a regular.
cary-master artist – i have highlighted blonde hair. things can go downhill quick with a bad, inexperienced colorist. you could end up with stripes, foil lines at your part, or the "i dumped a whole bottle of bleach on my head" look.
Cary knows how to give you a natural look, time and time again. i used to drive from san francisco to berkeley to see my past stylist. once i met cary, i never went back.
i have extremely long hair and have been reluctant to cut it....cary's technique left me with the best cut i've ever had in my life. he stays true to what you want.
i am not a fan of up-do's ...at all. with most stylists you'll end up with something prom-looking. for a party, i let cary use his own discretion, because i trust him. once again he wowed and my style was the subject of many compliments.
i highly recommend him, you will see once you try him once.
writing again, several months later:
genius, genius, genius! always trust cary to look out for your best "look". cary convinced me i needed a few low lights to achieve a prettier, more natural look . i was scared--but i was totally unfounded! once again, cary delivered the goods, above & beyond my expectations. i absolutely love the very very subtle change..
Best Consultant - Best Stylist – Cary is a highly skilled professional with the ability to apply the right style perfectly every time. He has patiently and expertly guided me to styles that are current and fit my personality. I have been seeing Cary for more than 2 years and have experienced repeatable and consistent results throughout. I would recommend Cary to anyone in need of an experienced professional who is friendly, knowledgeable, creative and accurate.
A Master at his trade – Cary is amazing at what he does. He has a degree in art, and it shows in his work. He is meticulous in his approach and execution and he has the rare ability to capture the essence of his client in his art: creating a haircut/style that fits the client's appearance, personality and lifestyle. There were moments that felt 'Picassoesque', as Cary took a step back to look at his work, and then came back to apply the perfect finishing touches. Cary's work is integral: he doesn't just deliver a haircut, he creates the perfect finish to his client's personality. Despite his considerable talent, he is amazingly gentle, humble and unintrusive. How lovely to see an artist of his caliber remain so unbelievable grounded. This man is a gem.
Best Haircut for Guys in San Francisco; Cary Carter – Cary is the best! I have been going to Cary for 3 years. I love getting my haircut from him. All I have to do is show up and he takes it from there. Regardless if I keep my hair buzzed short, or if I am growing it out to have a more trendy haircut - Cary always takes great care of me. He knows what look will look best and keeps me current and stylish. I don't like to book too far in advance and he is very kind with his schedule and is always flexible to squeeze me into his books. Aside from a great haircut - he is a great guy. Cary has a sense of calm about him that makes it delightful to see him. I highly recommend his services. His prices are right too!
Best haircut/style i have ever had! – Cary's skill and craftsmanship is incredible. I had my haircut in many places including IvanNoel in Chicago and Shorty's in LA and I have to say, hands down, this is one of the nicest salons, with a GREAT staff.
