Editorial Review – For cheap cuts on the fly, West Portal locals head to this corner salon that's one of the few places in town where you can see a stylist for less than $20.
A Great Inexpensive Haircut – I used to pay a tatooed hipster on Haight St. $50 for the same basic caesar cut I'm getting here for $17. I like the cut here better too Don't dare compare this place unfavorably with Supercuts..... Try Linda, she's great.
More than a neat name... – Besides having a great name that pays tribute to one of the most famous bands to start out of San francisco, the Grateful head is not a bad place to get a haircut. I suggest going to Francis, who also is the owner. She is a friendly lady who does a good job on my cuts all the time. Moderately priced at $14 for a normal haircut. Also in a great location , I usually get a haircut, get a wash, and have dinner at one of many spots in the West portal area.
Waste of time and money – I decided to try out this salon because it was priced the same as the supercuts down the street, and I thought I might get a better haircut for the same price. Boy was I wrong! The hairdresser who cut my hair did not know the meaning of "tapered," "graded" or "very short in back," and after asking her to cut it shorter four times, I finally left, went home, and cut it in my bathroom. At least supercuts would have washed my hair for the same price (this place charges extra for wash and styling)
