Consistently great cut and color – I've been going to John Velasquez for years and wouldn't go anywhere else. It is a warm and comfortable setting with lovely people and they are all really proficient with anything having to do with hair. John is an extraordinary colorist; his highlighting is so good that many of my friends have no idea that this isn't the natural color of my hair. My daughters use John's as the standard for all good salons, and when they visit SF they routinely try to fit in an appointment. Great people, great service, great outcome!
Don't waste your time or money! – They think they're profesionals but they're not. I wanted to bleach my hair blonde and have it look like a medium golden blonde color. The first time I went Lauran did my hair and she made it brown. I could not believe how far off she was! It took her 4 times to get it to the color I wanted. It went from brown to red to orange to blonde! By the time I was finished 4 hours later, I had an enormous headache and my scalp flaked for days. So the next time I went I had John Velasquez do it himself and for about a year he was doing a great job...then he started taking longer to get it right and started charging a lot more money! In less than 2 years I went from paying $120 for bleach and toner to $212, not to mention the tip! That's outrageous! The last 2 times I went I spent about 4-5 hours in there and left with a headache and less than perfect results. Then they get annoyed when you want them to try again. If they knew what to do in the first place, there would be no problem. It's not like I'm not paying for it and I tipped them very well too! As people they are extremely nice and friendly but as styilists, they are not worth the trouble or the money.
