Came here on a recommendation -- and loved it. I always had my color done in L.A. and my cuts here in SF. When my LA stylist retired, I decided to find someone local who could do both. When two of my girlfriends independantly recommended G-SQUARED, I decided to give them a try. The address is not Union Squre -- but parking is fabulous -- right in front of the salon. I went to Kimnberly -- she was amazing -- very friendly -- put me at ease -- and my hair color was beautiful -- very natural blonde. I'm more of a traditionalist for hair cuts -- but she did well with the cut too. Overall -- I'm completely satisfied and this fits with my New Year's Resolution -- Simplify! No more trips to L.A. for color.

I love G-SQUARED. They can do things with my hair that noone else can (not even me). So I had the Company Holiday party last weekend -- and I had to knock it out -- promotion and bonus time and a major account was invited I went to Kimberly on Thursday and asked her to change it up a bit. It was a risk -- because she's always fantasitically out there. She gave me a "designer" color -- three different colors (reds and blonds and browns) layered together -- it was fantastic! I left there feeling runway ready. I may eventually go back to my blonde highlights again -- but I felt like a million bucks for the company party.

Pros: Color Technique; Great Atmosphere, Punctual

Cons: Evning Appts only on T - Th

Just moved to the City and was desperately looking for a new hair stylist. Saw the review for G-SQUARED in Allure magazine as the best SF colorist -- so I decided to give them a try. I was referred to Susan. She's a doll -- and my color was spot on. She lifted my base without any reddish undertones -- and gave me cool tone highlights. Love her! I can now exhale for the holidays!

Kimberly turned my ordinary mousey locks into a dazzling redhead with matching highlights. MY husband was
blown-away. He said I looked amazing. Kim is very sweet and easy to talk with and thourough. The entire staff was producing some beautiful color!!!!!!!!!!!!

They saved me -- I was to attend my sister's wedding in Hawaii in one week. I went to XXXX on Union Square. They gave me orange highlights and fried my already highlighted ends. I found these guys on Citysearch. Susan saved me. She brought back my rich brown color with some subtle highlights to lighten around my face (and make me look 5 years younger). I won't go anywhere else.

My sister lives in SF and suggested that I get my hair colored while visiting over the holidays. I was booked with KImberly for color and cut and let me say that she is top notch, sweet, talented and caring. I look forward to my next visit to the city.

Just moved to SF and close to G-Squared. I loved using Citysearch in L.A. and thought it would be a great way to find a new salon in SF. Citysearch didn't let me down and I live like two blocks away. Got a mid-afternoon appointment with Kimberly and she is fabulous!!!! Looking forward to my return.

I went to G-SQUARED on a recommendation and tried to get into see Neil. His evenings/weekends were booked out too far. So . . . I tried Debra -- and she's simply fabulous. Good cool energy -- and wicked with the scissors and color bottle. I left feeling like a dazzling red head -- and it hasn't faded yet.

Just moved to SF and found out about G-Squared through the nieghborhood gossip. Met with Kimberly for both cut and color and I must say coming for Southern Ca. I was very impressed with the personal attention she gave me. Loved, Loved my color and my cut as well. I'm hooked!!!!!

I had highlights done for the first time, and Cecilia at G-Squared did a fabulous job. I love the highlights, the color, the cut, and the style that she did. I had thought I wanted an all-over lighter shade of color, but she convinced me to get highlights instead, to avoid possible damage to my hair. She was so right! The highlights look much better than a solid lighter shade would have.

I have never had such special attention from my stylist. Susan was so cute and sweet and really listened to me and my desires and delivered. I was always shuffled from person to person in New York so this was a new experience for me and I must say I enjoyed it. Maybe this is a new trend!!! The same person cuts and colors your hair. Thanks Susan!!!

I'm a skeptic -- so when I read all of these rave reviews, I thought its not possible. Nonetheless, I decided to give them a try. They booked me with Kimberly -- She was amazing -- She matched my NYC done color and gave it more warmth and texture (never thought I woud use that word for my hair --- but its truly dimensional!) All around -- I was very pleased and couldn't give the experience higher praise!

I made an appointment with Kimberly and she really took her time to find out what I was looking for. She was totally devoted to spending time with me. I must say I felt special and loved the results. Everyone there is soooo nice... the owner works next to her and even made sure I was comfortable. Excellent service!!!!

These guys saved me. I was set to go to on a follow up date from Dinner for Eight (I was desparate) -- and thought I would do a quick home color touch up. OMG! I was in tears. My hair was various shades of yellow and orange. I would have cancelled but saw the rave reviews for these guys on Citysearch. My stylist was so sweet -- but what really impressed me is that she brought over the owner to confirm her recommendations. No egos -- these guys wanted to do it right. They got the brassy reds and yellows out of my hair. They have a client for life. My hair didn't fall out -- is still healthy -- and lost all of its neon qualities. These guys have my highest recommendation!

I went in for the removal of my gray hair because at my age it just isn't pretty. The staff is very friendly and I am very excited about my new color. Next time I may try highllights. Great energy there!!!

I've been looking for a new place to go for highlights and cut since I moved to the city. My highlights were great, natural just like I had asked for. I just have never left a salon with roots like this. I understand that you can't get too close to the scalp but this was just bad. I measured with a ruler and the roots were 3/4 of an inch, at the top were I part my hair.
The technique used was different from the high end salons I've been to in the past. The stylist parted my hair down the middle and worked her way down the sides. The places I've been to before only go in that direction on the sides and then start from the forehead and work their way back on the top part of the head. I assume the reason for this is so you won't have the same highlighs down the entire section were you part your hair.

The haircut was not what I would expect for the money I paid. I have thick hair and the stylist did not seem to know how to blend layers into the hair. I basically have two hair cuts. The long hair and a blunt cut above (the layer) that lays on top of the longer hair. This is something I would expect from SuperCuts. Overall the appointment lasted 40min shorter than the usual time spent.

Recently tried Neil upon a recommendation. Once I finally got an appointment I realized it was worth the wait. He is very professional and attentive, conversational, sweet and above all talented as hell. I love my color and for once I didn't walk out looking like a fake dye job from a sub-par salon and didn't break my bank either. The tones of my different colors are much for vivid for some tones yet sublte for others as accents. HE ROCKS!!!!!

My highlights have never been better -- and the condition of my hair healthier. These guys do not "save" time by applying the color to all of the hair -- but expertly go in and select strands and apply the color to the new growth only. I can now grow my hair longer without brittle fried ends. I love my stylist Neil. He's a bit difficult to get into see now with the new Allure Magazine review -- but I have gone to Susan as well and have been very happy. These guys know their trade -- and I must applaud them.

I was in town for summer school break and saw that these guys were mentioned in Allure magazine so I decided to go in. They transformed my yellow blonde hair into a beautiful toned summer blonde and I have never been happier. The only down side is that it was hard to get an evening appointment. All the staff were very nice!!!!

I never knew there was this salon until lately as the buzz about town started. Got an awesome cut and will be going back for some color since this appears to be their specialty. Call in advance as it is hard to get in in the evening and week-ends. THe stylist seemed warm and the salon is not
snooty like some others.

These guys rock!!! With a suggestion from a co-worker I decided to dive into G-Squared.
Loved the whole experience!!! Love my new highlights and the slight change to my base color.
The energy is low-key and the results were right on. Great space...

1. didn't even do an overall trim(which every salon does)
2. didn't address the needs of my hair-type
3. gave me an overall uneven haircut
4. poor job on blowdrying my hair. just simply casually passed a brush through my hair-needless to say, the 'do' didn't end even last till the end of the day.
5. poor shampoo job. most places that charge this much atleast have a shampoo person who THOROUGHLY washes+conditions+ provides a light scalp massage. if your stylist is the one washing your hair, BEWARE.

I have searched far and wide throughout our fair city, and have yet to find a decent hairstylist. Until now! Someone told me to use Citysearch, so I looked up "Hair Salon" and was surprised to see that I had already visited most of the Salons listed, with the exception of G-SQUARED. I desperately needed a cut and color and booked an appointment with Debra. My search has ended!! Debra colored my hair perfectly, the exact color I had been imagining, and she even told me exactly what she was doing while she was doing it. She then proceeded to give me the best haircut I've had in recent memory. That's right - the same stylist cut AND colored my hair; no assembly line feeling at G-Squared! Not only was my hair amazing, Debra was friendly, attentive and very professional. I can't wait to show off my hair to my friends and coworkers! I've already booked my next appointment and encourage everyone to give this salon and Debra a try!

Yea!!!! I loved this place. Off the beaten path from other salons I was impressed with the space and the level of expertise of my colorist. Met with Nikki and she was amazing. Super cute and sweet - not fake- I really enjoyed my experiece there. She actually took the time to find out what I was trying to achieve and was very honest about my limitations which I really appreciated instead of just doing whatever. Loved my hair and the space!! Great cut too!!!

I have never written a reveiw before -- but found this place on CitySearch and had to add my affirmation. Lovely small salon -- with Cecilia who knows color. She matched my current color from my LA colorist -- and was able to match the cut from my LA stylist. Didn't know that one person could do both anymore -- but I loved it. I was out of there in under 2 hours. No stress -- very competent. Highest recommendation!

I've been to most of the Union Square factory salons and I must say that this salon is a nice change from all those guys. First of all the receptionist is a doll and most helpful... no attitude there. Everyone seems cool and the stylist all look very professional. Most importantly I loved my hair color and the stylist who did my hair took their time and I didn't feel rushed or pushed out the door. It's not a huge space but they did well with the amount of space they have. Parking on the corner is much cheaper than downtown. I think it's seven or eight dollors. Great vibe!!!!

Wow. I only found a couple of negative reviews for ths place so I though I would try it out. It's ok and my hair looks alright but it defenitly wasn't the place I was expecting. I don't know why people say its easy to park cuz after 3 you can't park on 6th. It's not in a nice area and frankly felt a little stuffy for me. Not thta the people weren't nice but there was a little tension in the air or something that made it hard to relax. Its kind of loud, too.

I have been to the salon twice both times with Nikki and am so happy with how my hair has turned out. I went in with almost green hair and Nikki was very honest with what could be done to fix it and the time frame it would take to get back to a natural blonde. It looks better and better each time I get it done. The salon is really nice with and the receptionist was very helpful with my questions on hair producuts.

I went into this salon with my boring blackhair and old highlights not really knowing what I wanted and Nikki gave me the best color ever! My black hair is now a beautiful golden brown and she gave me great blonde highlights. The salon was pretty busy and a little small but everyone was very friendly.

Believe it or not I have never had my hair colored before and friends always tried to encourage me not to do so. Ready for a change I decided to try something a little different but not drastic at all. I have to say it looks great and natural because I was scared to death. Cecilia did a great job and everyone loves the soft highlights that I have. Maybe I will be more bold next time. Cute space!!

I've been going to Neil since he was at Joseph Cozza Salon on Maiden Lane. I've been every shade of blonde -- and he nails it everytime. I would go to noone else. I have referred no less than 6 of my friends to him -- and all of them still go to him. He keeps me current with the trends -- but not overdone! Location couldn't be better -- I drive up from Atherton and find parking directly in front of the salon every time. No more parking drama to get my hair done!

After reading over 50 glowing reviews, I thought I'd give this place a try. After driving around one of the worst neighborhoods in the city looking for a place to park, I made my way up to the front door only to find it locked. I had to knock a couple of times before someone "buzzed" me in. The place is small and I mean small. Very antiseptic looking, kind of like those room displays at Ikea. And loud. My haircut was alright but my highlights aren't really what I asked for. Our of respect I won't name names, but this place is definitely not worth the hype. Look elsewhere.

Cons: No Parking, Scary Location, Overrated

I have been going to Debra for 2 years now, and absolutely love her work! On top of being super sweet, she has an excellent memory about your hair.

I moved away from the city and had to get my hair cut from someone on the Peninsula lately, and regret not making the trip up to see Debra. I usually get highlights and lowlights from her, and a cut. This salon is not the cheapest, but also not the most expensive, and considring that I paid $60 for my aweful cut here in San Mateo, it's worth it to spend the money to go to this salon!

For some reason everytime I get my hair colored I walk out looking overcolored and
overdone. Not sure why that happens but my faith in hairdresers hasd been restored.
I met with Cecilia and she gave me without a doubt the best natural looking highlights I have had in a long time. So glad to get rid of those stripes!!! Yikes!!!
I will be going back for sure... awesome space.

I was in a slump!!! Tired of my job and a boyfriend in Southern California that is
on again and off again. Then I decided... Change my hair color! Yea! I booked with
Cecilia and walked out a new woman. New shade of blonde with soft brown lowlights
that are visible but not too dark like others I have had. Anyway, she was delightful and very sweet as well. I'll be back for another pick-me-up soon. Thanks Cecilia!!!

After reading the reviews on Citysearch I made an appointment with Nikki. I love the space and she did an excellent job on my color which was in need of attention. She works upstairs and I had a great view of the salon which has a very relaxed vibe. What I enjoyed most is that I had only one stylist that did both cut and color. Nikki was great
and fun to talk to.

I tried this salon based on the excellent review - they totally wrecked my hair, it took me a year to grow out the damage and the terrible hair cut.

I haven't had my hair professionally colored for years so I had no idea who to go in the city. I read the reviews here, esp about Susan, and decided to take the dive. Not only did she do a fantastic job with highlights, which corrected a rather brassy home color job, but the price was incredibly reasonable, and I got an appt the next day. The place was stylie but not stuffy. A true find! Will definitely return.

I was getting real tired of trendy salons where the stylists had pink hair and bad tattoos. So i decided to try this salon named Gsquared in the SOMA that has gotten great reviews. I was not disappointed. The salon is upscale and mature, yet still hip and fun. My stylist Susan had many great suggestions for my cut and color. I can be real indecisive about my hair, but I felt very compfortable allowing Susan to work her magic!
I really enjoyed her conversation and how she allowed me to ramble on about absolutely nothing! When i walked out of the salon I had a cut and color that was to die for! Thanks Susan and Gsquared!

Pros: Friendly!, Great color!, Great cut!

Cons: Obey posted, parking restrictions!

Recently went to G-Squared for highlights and I was very impressed. My old stylist always bleached my hair and sent me out the door. This time was different...
Instead of leaving a white-out blond I left with beautiful tones of honey blond and lowlites that were enough but not too much. Everyone had been raving about my
hair color ever since.
Evenings and week-ends are hard to get in although I think it is worth the wait.

**GOLD STARS!!! This place is absolutely spectacular! Ive never had my hair done better anywhere else. The Hairstylist Susan did an amazing job!!! I have really dark hair and she was able to lift it to beautiful colors of soft browns. She did excellent work with my panels of highlights! The salon and staff have style and pizzazz. The place has character. Prices are better then most and they make it definitely worth it. Friendly with awesome consultation! Dont go cause of their outstanding reviews but go to truly ENJOY the experience!

Pros: Freeway access near, Good deal, Evening hours

I am always unsure of what is the best suited color for myself and time and time again I go into other salons and end up with something unflattering and not complimentary to my skintones. After meeting with Nikki I felt like she was at the top of her game. Instead of trying to make my hair too light or too dark she mixed a beautiful blend of light and dark pieces that turned out amazing. The overall look was right on
target!!! I can't believe how much softer I look and the compliments just keep coming in. Very cool space and a much relaxed vibe. All the stylist seemed kicked back and talented as well. I loved Nikki!!! She really spent quality time with me.

I hate trying new places because I feel like new stylist don't give me enough time to explain myself or my vision. Not so with Nikki, I felt very comfortable. She has a cool stryle of her own and easy going as well. I loved the color and cut she gave me and all my co-workers raved about the new do. Thumbs way up!!!!!
