What makes a great hair stylist is a matter of personal preference, but there are a couple salons that draw consistent raves from their clientele. One of those is Rubio & Raven, an elegant and hip salon in the Lower Haight. The décor is clean, with a black-and-white color scheme acccented by natural wood, framed botanical specimens and a chandelier overhead. All the stylists excel at cutting hair with precisions. The full-service salon offers haircuts for straight and curly hair, coloring and highlights, deep conditioning treatments and blowouts. And if you're prepping for a special occasion, they also can style your hair in an updo or apply makeup.
For people with naturally wavy or curly hair, one of the best salons in San Francisco is Madusalon, set in a Victorian in the Lower Haight. They specialize in Deva cuts, a technique that cuts each curl individually so it enhances your natural pattern. And though there’s no pressure to buy, Madusalon carries several popular lines of curly hair care products. Stylists also share advice on how to achieve the same look at home. You’ll also find a full range of hair services from organic haircolor and blowdrying to braids and hair extensions. The salon also does waxing, brow and lash tinting and deep-cleansing skin detoxification.
You just might go home from your trip to San Francisco with a whole new hairstyle.
