What a mistake!. Edgardo Chacon basically massacred my hair. It took six months to grow it back and I had to spent additional $100 to have it fixed. Overly fake and unprofessional. Not recommended!
Great mens cut. I've tried all the best in the city and Misook is a keeper. For a guy who goes once a month, she never disappoints. Salon has a nice vibe, I recommend it highly!
Hairdressers to the Stars!!!.
Edgardo Chacon and Elkin Chacon,
Edgardo is the master of haircuts and styles and Elkin the master of color and highlites. My hair has never been so long and healthy! And always the most current looks out there.Did I mention they are also hansome,charming and funny, they are the best!!!
Great Hair Care and Color. I've been seeing my stylist, Misook, for over two years now. She's great. I come in for a touch up on "my paint job". The highlights and tints are always great. I receive compliments on my color and cut regularly from friends, family and strangers. I highly recommend them. Also, it's easy to get an appointment--which isn't always easy in this town on a Saturday, last minute, or even planning 5-6 weeks ahead.
Best Salon and Spa for every reason, recommend to everybody!.
LISA FUKUDA-NGUYEN IS THE BEST COLORIST ON EARTH!!!! She intuitively knows exactly what you want, what will look best on you, what kind of routine will be most cost effective and fitting for you and your lifestyle, her expertise ranges from very funky to very natural and everything in between, she has an awesome personality and the best customer service I've ever experienced, she has great assistants who make sure your time there is as comfortable as possible, she works alongside of a great staff whom I have favorites I will also tell you about below. Needless to say from day 1 I am a lifetime client of Lisa's and hope she never quits!!! I swear you will be sooo pleased with her quality of work, prices and finished product... She's amazing! = )
While your are getting your hair done... while you are waiting, indulge yourself in a good gossip magazine, relaxing music, and a lovely manicure and pedicure! You will look so great with your new hair color and flawyless beutiful nails! I love and have grown attached to Tracy the best manicurist I've ever had. She has a great range of abilities too, and makes your nails look like works of art. Simply flawless...(and long lasting!)
And finally, refresh your new hair color... with a new hairstyle and cut! Nothing compliments your new color better than a new cut, or if your feeling bold, try a brand new style! Or just add bangs, trim ends, add layers, or go a little funky or modern. My favorite hairstylist is Amy Hasushi. I've brought in photos of the haircut I desired and she gave me exactly what I wanted, and then some! And I've also gave her very vague instructions such as "do what whatever you think will look good on me" and I loved what she did! I've had the same hairstyle ever since!
This is a great salon for everybody and I would recommend it to anybody. Great experience there every time, time after time. A+++++
Aweful! How would you like to pay $100 for a mens cut that took no more than $20 minutes?.
I recently moved from Boston to San Francsico and am in need of a haircut. I looked up Citysearch and with all the buzz on here, I decided to give Maiden Lane a try. Boy, was it a mistake. I called up the salon and was randomly assigned a stylist. The stylist took no more than 20 minutes cutting my hair. After the cut, my hair looked no different than how it was when I first walked in. Maybe slightly shorter, but there was absolutely no change in style. I thought to myself, so much for an almost 5-rated salon on here. Then, I walked to the desk and found the cut had cost me a hundred dollars. A $100?! I couldnt beleive it. The receptionist whom took my appointment did not communicate this to me at all. I felt completely cheated. Not only was the cut unorginal, but it cost a $100 -- for a mens cut. I walked back to my office and told the story to my co-worker. The first thing my coworker told me is, "I didnt even notice you got a cut?"
Will definitely never going back there again.
Ok but not worth the hype. I realized that after all the salons I tried in this city before finding my current one, I had not reviewed any. So, if you are in the market for a new salon, I thought I'd tell you my experience. I saw Nikas here when he was here and although he is allegedly the best in the city, um, he's not. My color was pretty good, but too monotone/no dimension, and it took 4 hours. My blowdry was not great, and it was expensive. I can't speak for the people there now, but the salon to me felt like more hype than substance and it actually seems like it used to be a doctor's or dentist's office with the way it was set up. If you are looking for fabulous hair, I'd go to Ron Pernell studio. Hugh McGuire is the best in the city for color.

MARY AMEN - UNQUESTIONABLY BEST HAIR CUT EVER. MARY AMEN, I absolutely love my new style. I haven't been doing much to it but a quick blowdry and can't believe how easy it is to maintain. The response I've gotten from co-workers and friends is overwhelming. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! This is, unquestionably, the best hair cut I've ever had, and you are so right about the way it changes the way I feel about myself. Thank you so very much for taking the time you did with me, and for the follow up email. Thanks again, MARY.
