Carol is fantastic. I'm fairly picky when it comes to my hair - and I had a HORRIBLE haircut when I first moved to the city. Carol fixed it and suggested what was best for me in order to achieve the look I wanted. She's always honest and if you follow her advice, you will absolutely be pleased!

The salon is very cute and clean. The products they use are high-end (they have Bumble & Bumble which I love). Overall, fab place to get your hair done!

The place was very cozy and relaxing. I like the massage where they put some kind of smooth stones from your nape all the way down to your lower back while greeting massaged from the sides of the head.

When it comes to hair and beauty, PRESTON at Acme is the perfectly balanced professional. He is extremely knowledgeable, but not at all pushy; is a good listener, but will also offer his opinion if asked; he is warm and kind, but also has a silly/sassy side as well; he just seems to be a lovely all around person. PRESTON listened to my concerns/desires/etc.. about my hair (coming off a horrible experience at another salon), did his thing, and I left an hour and a half later feeling like a new person. And it didn't stop there - I have been loving my new cut for 2 months now. I'm not overly dramatic about my hair - I've had a couple sub par cuts in my day and whatever, it grows back, but when you do have a great cut it can transform your whole attitude/ outlook. So, If you want to have a great experience with a talented professional that you can trust to share in your 'vision' give PRESTON a visit and I know you'll leave his salon happy...

I live in San Jose and just happened to stop by Acme, by chance. It is an amazing and unbelievable treat to have a hair cut with Carol Anderberg at the Acme Salon. It is the first time in a long time that a hair dresser actually did what I wanted, and not what she is used to do. I am very happy with Carol and love the Salon?s atmosphere. I highly recommend it to everyone, no matter how simple or sophisticated your taste may be. 5 ***** for Carol.

I have been regularly going to Acme since it opened a few years ago. The service is fabulous, the surroundings are nice and very clean, the people are engaging and friendly. I have never had a "bad color day" after having my hair done by Dennis at the salon, not to mention he gives the best haircut I have ever had. He knows his stuff, he's fun, engaging, professional and talented, to say the least. I work in a courtroom in a Bay Area county and I was subbing for another colleague. The judge, who I know very well, put her hand over the microphone, asked me to come over to her, and said "your hair looks fabulous," then we continued on with what we were doing. If I can stop a court proceeding with my lovely locks, it makes me very confident that my hair looks as fabulous as it feels.

I really can't say enough great things about Dennis, the salon, and all the people that work there. If you don't give it a try, I can only hope that you never have a bad salon day again. If you do give it a try, I can almost guarantee you will never have a bad salon day again. At least that has been my experience and that of my friends. Pick up the phone!

Pros: Professionalism, current in trends, great location, great product, wonderful service

Cons: Sometimes hard to get a last-minute appointment because they are busy

I've been living in the area for only a few months (a Washington DC transplant) and dreaded to undergo the search for a new salon but I found exactly what I was looking for with Acme.

The location is awesome. The vibe is very chill.

Prestin cut my hair and we spent about five minutes beforehand talking about everything.

He did an *amazing* job. One of the best haircuts I've had in my entire life. The entire visit was fun because he's a wonderful person to talk to.

Prestin has a new client now.

A marvelous haircut for only $50.

Yeah. I'm happy.

"I moved here from Los Angeles (land of great hair) to have my hair ruined by inept stylists over and over. After 1.5 years of growing out the damage (flying back to LA for the repair jobs) it was clear I needed to try another local out.
Today I met Dennis and he gave me the best haircut of my life! I broke away from the mirror to sign up on citysearch just to sing his praises. I have very thick and wavy hair that Dennis magically thinned into a hip super-cool new do. He seemed to have ESP and knew what I wanted without me struggling to articulate it or being forced to pick out a "look" out of a stupid hair book.
The salon is retro 50's inspired with a great vibe. No pretenses...just great energy. Dennis has made me the happiest girl in the Bay!"

Dennis has been styling my hair for over 10 years and I drive from San Jose just for him to do my hair. The color is great and he doesn't fix the same style repeatedly. He gets really excited about creating a new look. He's also a great cook and will share recipes.

My only hesitation in writing a review of Acme is that I won't be able to get an appointment! This is a wonderful, down to earth salon with talented hair dressers that have great skills. The hair products are luxurious as is the service and without the overtly hipster vibe that some hair salons embrace. Don't get me wrong: Acme is absolutely HIP, but it is not a scene. If you want her hair cut and/or colored RIGHT (and who doesn't?) go to Acme. Just please let me still be able to get an appointment!

Recently went to Acme and met with KImberly. She is a nice gal and talented. My friend suggested that i see her and get a new do. I said ok and gave it a try and love my hair. The best thing is that for writing this review I get 20% off my visit and that is a great deal. My friend said to go to Kimberly's website -- KimberlyG . com and look for the "discount for Citysearch reviews". I thnk my co-workers will soon follow..

Kimberly is an amazing stylist!! My main concern is my color and what she does with it is unbelievable. Her cuts are second to none. At least once a week I get compliments on my hair!!! The salon is great but the only reason I go there is because of her. When you make an appointment be sure and do it in advance as she may be booked for a couple of weeks but believe me when I tell you it is worth the wait !!!!!!!!!!!

I got my haircut by Lindsay a while ago and she is the best! My hair was down to my waist and I was ready for a change. Lindsay made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to cut my long hair. I ended up cutting off 18 inches and was so happy with the turn-out. She cut my hair exactly how I wanted it. I brought in a picture of the haircut I wanted and she did it perfectly! II was so nervous but I put my hair in her hands and she did a great job! On top of that, she was reassuring, fun-spirited, and kind. Since then, my mom, dad, and sister have all gone to see her! I recommend her to any one who needs a hair makeover!

Kimberly G. is a delightful and very knowledgable stylist. At my first appointment, I immediately felt comfortable and could trust her suggestions. The result was the best color and cut I ever had. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Kimberly is your answer. After a bad decision to bleach out my beautiful highlighted hair to a platinum blond. ?Well let just say it was a chicken yellow instead?. I felt like a cheep @$%^&(@?
Looking and searching for a solutions to fix this mess I got myself into. I started to research the internet. Before I went to see Kimberly I went to another highly recommended salon, they told me I would have to grow my natural color out 2 to 3 inches and sent me on my way telling me there is nothing they could do at this time. Not a pretty site my roots are quite dark brown. I knew there had to be a solution. I have seen others with as blond of hair but not this yellow undertone. Thinking there was nothing after my visit at the last salon I went to consult with Kimberly. She took her time to explain to me what happened and how we could resolve my problem with a quick and not a very expensive way. Thank god for her!!! My boyfriend never dares to say a thing to me about my hair but he said honey, your hair looks great. I really love it! I guess he did not like sleeping with that chicken yellow hair girl. J Now I have gone in for my first highlights with Kimberly and wow! I did not know how she could fix the 1-inch outgrowth that I had but she did. I get many compliments on my hair now. My color is this beautiful hue of pearl blond. I feel better than ever and now I am thankful that I had such a bad experience because I would of never of found Kimberly. She is fun person too, a plus. She is quite busy so it took me a while to get in to see her but it was totally worth the wait. All I can say is get your appointments now cuz this girl is going to be busy. I love the fact she has online booking too?Thanks Kimberly you?re my hair god.

I have been to many of the top salons in San Francisco over the past 4 years (77 Maiden Lane, Cowboys and Angels, and Cinta to name a few...) searching for a stylist who I like that can both cut and color hair. It's been a long, frustrating search but I've finally found her...Kimberly G at Acme Head and Body!! I'm a blonde and constantly on the hunt for the perfect shade of white blonde that's not too yellow or ashy. For some reason every place I've been has messed up my color (always too natural, mousey, or yellow) but Kimberly totally understood me and GOT THE COLOR RIGHT! Not only that, she has a super cool personality (she's very easy to talk to and SO knowledgeable) and my hair cut rocked too! I recommend her to anyone who is fed up with the "top" San Francisco salons and wants to finally have their hair done right!

Kimberly cut and styled my hair for the first time Thursday (3-13-08). I have just moved to SF from the East coast and had no idea where to go to get my hair done. To say I have problem hair is an understatement. I have thick natural curls that are such a problem to control. I went to Kimberly with my friends suggestion (and wonderful praises), as she has been seeing Kim for a year or so now. I went in with ideas of what I wanted to leave with, I had hopes of getting a good cut that I will be able to style myself once I go home. I had zero hopes that she would be able to style my hair like I wanted, no one has ever been able to. Kim amazed me. She not only cut my hair just as I asked of her she was able to style my hair like never before. Better than my highest hopes. I am THRILLED with Kim. I would, and will, recommend her to everyone I know. And to top it off she is a wonderful personality who listens to you and really cares about you as her client. No rushing to get to the next client. She spent so much time with me and really made me happier with my hair than I think I've ever been. Thank you Kimberly!! YOU ROCK

I have very thick, wavy, coarse hair. Kimberly is the first stylist who actually gets it. I love that I can schedule an appointment for a full cut or just to have my hair thinned. Yesterday, Kimberly colored my hair, which has been going gray for about five years. Kimberly's color work is fabulous--she worked with the gray to have it act as highlights. I've gotten nothing but compliments on the color. I love it! Thank you Kimberly.

When I moved to San Francisco from the east coast, I did so with excitement, but also a pang of regret that I had to leave my hair stylist of many years. She and I had bonded as I sat in her chair over so many things, and she consistently gave me the best looking hair I had ever known. So needless to say I was a bit apprehensive about finding a good stylist here. So I went online to find out what kind of experiences other people were having with their stylists. I found Holly on CitySearch, and everyone seemed to really like her. I made my appointment online ? so easy!
When I stepped into the salon, I was greeted warmly, and immediately took note of the adorable decor. Holly introduced herself and we got started. I felt comfortable with her right away because I could tell she was really listening to what I wanted. I didn?t want anything too crazy, since I was still feeling separation anxiety from my beloved ex-stylist. Holly totally delivered. She matched my color perfectly, and she gave me a cut that really flattered the shape of my face and was super-stylish at the same time.
Since then I have been back to Holly several times, and I liked her so much that I even created this CitySearch profile just to tell the world about how great she is! We?ve started branching out with my color and style, and every time I see her I leave her chair looking better than the time before.
I am so happy to have found a west coast rival to my east coast stylist! No one can match what I had with her, but Holly has introduced me to a whole new chapter of my hair-related life!

I LOVE KIMBERLY G.
In all honesty Kimberly G. is the best hairstylist that has ever touched my hair and let me tell you I have been to a lot of hairstylist, so that says A LOT! I hated my hair, simply because it had that brassy look with tons of different colors weaved in it. It looked extremely fake, sort of trashy and not to mention extremely damaged! I basically told her I wanted to try and keep the length and I let her do her thing! She gave me a more elegant, classy, layered look with a more natural color. Exactly what I was looking for! One thing that amazed me was before I went in I could barely run my fingers through my hair without hitting a tangle but after Kimberly was done with my hair it was so sleek and soft! She is truly amazing and can work wonders on hair you wouldn?t think could ever be fixed! So if you hair needs color correction, highlight, lowlights, touch ups or even just a cut, Kimberly is the stylist for you! I can say I normally don?t just let any stylist do what they want to my hair, but if you need someone you can trust with your hair, GO TO KIMBERLY! I promise you won?t just fall in love with her talented, creative skills but her sweet, optimistic personality as well!

I have found the VERY BEST stylist in the City. Kimberly is the stylist that most of us search and search for and some of us are fortunate to finally find. Not only does she give GREAT haircuts, she does my color and highlights like no one else ever has ? I?m so pleased with Kimberly?s work. Even with all the color and highlights, my hair is in really good condition, again thanks to Kimberly. When I leave the salon after she has done my hair ? I feel great. Many, many are the times when leaving other salons that I have not felt that way, in fact would go home and restyle my hair. I cannot imagine anyone going to Kimberly for a haircut/style or color and not being really pleased and feeling good about how they look --- And to top it off she is so very nice.

Dennis used to be a chef, and he brings the same grace and assurance to hair color. I went in with a color emergency and he fixed it without breaking stride! And without damaging my hair. My color is natural and classy. His relaxed personality influences the whole salon. Not stuffy or stuck-up, it is friendly and approachable. It's also in a convenient location--a few doors from Loehmann's!

I have been traveling from stylist to stylist for over 4 years now and everytime I leave the salon, I am disappointed with either the work they did or the personality of the stylist. I was referred to Holly from a friend of mine and when I made the appointment, I was thinking to myself "here I go again". When I walked into the salon, there was a warm and welcoming energy. The salon is very unique, I've never seen anything like it. It's absolutely adorable. I was a little hesitant, as I have always had unpleasant service in the past, but Holly made me feel comfortable right away. I'm not sure what it was that made me so relaxed, but just the way she did the consultation assured me she knew what she was doing. Not only did she know what she was doing, but she actually has a strong passion for it that you can see in her eyes. I would recommend her to anyone. I couldn't stay away from the mirror. The way she cut my hair framed my face perfectly and the color looked absolutely amazing. Go see her soon before she's booked!

Melissa Ruiz works Sundays only (she's also the Color Specialist at San Francisco Institute of Esthetics & Cosmetology full-time) but she's very accomodating with her schedule. She really listens during the consultation and gave me exactly what I wanted, making the appropriate changes for my face shape and hair texture. Her specialty is color yet I also got a fabulous haircut. Oh, and was her shampoo the most relaxing shampoo I've ever experienced!

Holly was a referral from a friend of mine so I was a bit nervous as my former stylist moved to another state. You have got to understand that my former hair stylist was Redken Stylist of the year so I was a bit particular when it came to my hair.

Holly definitely made me feel comfortable and gave me the sense that I was in good hands. Even though I was extremely picky and a bit demanding, she was totally professional about the whole experience and ad the same time very personable.

If you're looking for someone that is a hair GURU, welcoming, pays attention to details, and just simply a phenomenal person, please don't hesitate to contact Holly for all your hair needs.

Thanks for always making me feel like a MILLION Bucks when I leave the salon.

Kimberly G is the best hairdresser I have had to date.
I've seen quite a few stylist these past years (from rocker hipsters to highly trained snazzy fashionista types) and no one has ever delivered such great results in such little time.

I came to her with distressed bleach blond hair and she has managed to not only resurrect it , but to maintain/create the style/look that I desire. She has done so quickly and attentively in a comfortable, relaxing manner.

Seriously don't know what I would do without her. Kimberly Rocks!!!!

I was looking for someplace new to get my hair done after a long chain of bad hair experiences, so I asked my best friend where she gets her hair done. She told me to go to Holly at Acme Head and Body right away! "She'll change your world!"
So I went online to check out the salon's website, and I noticed that I could make my appointment online! I booked for a cut and color, and got an email confirmation from Holly herself. Done and done.
On appointment day, I went to the salon a little early because I didn't want to get lost. I ended up finding the place right away, so I went to the bagel shop downstairs for a few minutes and had a smoothie. Delicious! Went I went up to the second floor (where the salon was), I was greeted right from the elevator, and Holly offered me a cold beverage. The salon was so cute - every station was a vintage vanity! What a cute idea.
Holly touched up my color first, which I needed badly! She was even able to match the color perfectly. Then she took me over to wash my hair, and I was able to take a glance at the artwork on the walls. I love when salons display local artwork. She used shampoo that smelled amazing, and she massaged my head and neck!
Next Holly cut my hair. First she did a precision cut, which looked perfect, and she explained that this was the first step. Next she did a full blow-out and straightened it with a flat iron. Then she went back in with the scissors, and started to texturize my hair. I love to see all the weight coming out of my hair, so this was the best part for me. When she was finished, she re-styled and put finishing touches on me, and I was so happy! It was exactly what I wanted, and it fit my taste and personality completely. Holly was a real professional who really understood what I wanted.
Over a week later, I still spend a little extra time looking at my perfect hair in the mirror, and I'm so happy!
My search is over, I have found my perfect stylist!

Ever since I moved away from home and abandoned my favorite hair-stylist, I have had to endure one horrible and self-esteem ruining haircut after another. Finally, in San Francisco, Holly saved my hair and my future. When she was done cutting and coloring my hair, I actually said, "I want to make-out with my bangs." They were that hot. Holly and I talked extensively before she got to work; she asked me what I envisioned, she suggested what would look good, and we looked at style and color books together -- she was very patient, understanding, and fun. Our conversation during the haircut and color was one of the best I've had in San Francisco. I was at first worried to see hair flying all over the place, but Holly knew what she was doing, and you can now hear my friends saying things to me like, "This is the best you have ever looked," or, "This is the greatest haircut to date," or, "I want to make-out with you." Thank you, Holly!

Pros: Customer service, ability

Preston is excellent!!! He is original, creative, absolutely fun and I would recommend him in a heartbeat. I took a chance and am so glad I did. I have saved so much time because the haircut simply takes care of itself. I left the salon with a cut that fits my personality, enhances my positive features, and has just the right amount of funk . Now what more could one ask for. And what fun we had!!!

I went to Acme after reading 20-30 reviews and thought I'd take my chances. Preston had many terrific reviews and decided to go with him. I was pleasantly surprised when I called to book my appointment and asked to schedule an appt. w/Preston, that he immediately came to the phone and personally booked the appt. Upon arriving at the salon Preston instantly made me feel comfortable. We went over what my ideas were, problems I've encountered with previous cuts because my hair all grows forward, ( which no one has grasped until Preston) leaving me with a mass of hair much too heavy for my small face. Preston understood the problems with my hair, and at the same time also got a feel of my personality . I was truly impressed with the cut. We all have pictures and ideas of what we would like to look like after coming out of a salon but in my experience it is never even close. I always wondered if I had explained something incorrectly, or is that how they see me, to I look nothing like that photo they suggested. Thank you Preston, I'm not crazy afterall!!! This is only the second time after leaving a salon where I did not have to rush home to wash and restyle. And we are talking of at least thirty years and countless $$$$$. Thank you Preston. I'll be back soon. Oh by the way this is my first review of any sort and hope this will be helpful to somone.

I have been trying to grow my hair long for years, but something always happens that causes me to give up - a bad cut, and awkward stage that results in me chopping it off again, etc. After visiting Kim G. at Acme Head and Body I feel renewed hope that my efforts to grow out my hair will pay off this time!! I went to see Kim to get a trim after going 3 months without touching it. Kim actually told me that she would not cut my hair, that the layers are still too short, and that I needed to give it at least 2 more months of growth. She was clearly not motivated by money - she would not take a dime for the consultation she gave me, which included a lesson about color and moisture, product recommendations, and a flat iron style! She sent me on my way with a strategy as to how to get through the growing stage, and guaranteed me that if I follow her rules and see her for a few trims over the months, within 9 months I will have the beautiful long hair I've always wanted. I feel like now that I have Kim on my side, it is going to happen! I can't wait to see her again at Acme Hair and Body. You should too!

The Salon is a funky, and comfortable atmosphere, and full of talent. Not only is the salon itself a gem, but my stylist is as well. I enjoy going to a salon, sitting down, and just telling my stylist to do whatever they want. Each time I visit Holly, I really don't have to explain to her what I want because she knows my style, knows what's in, and is a very creative, and talented stylist. I have bigger things to worry about than getting a bogus haircut. :)

Cons: They don't have a full bar?

Holly has been coloring, cutting and styling my hair for 4 years now. She started out in Sacramento and when she moved to San Francisco (because her talent outgrew Sacramento) there was no question in my mind that it was worth it to me to make the drive to the bay area every couple months to have my hair done. I have a number of friends that have become her client through me just because they are so impressed with my hair styles through out the years. Holly has a great way of finding something new for you that you will love if that's what you want, or just maintaining a great style.
Holly is not only great at coloring and cutting hair, she's also very talented when it comes to formal styles, she did my hair for my wedding and all the girls in my bridal party, they of course looked great, I wouldn't have had anyone else.
Acme Head and Body did a great thing when they added Holly to the team, it's a modern retro salon with a great atmosphere, and she fits in great.

Holly Howard did a wonderful job dying and styling my hair. I was indecisive at first but she helped me to find the cutest look that really worked for me. It's been a couple weeks now and it still looks amazing and I continue to get compliments on it. I definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a new stylist, especially for coloring. She knows her stuff.

Cons: Was a little bit hard to find at first

I was searching so very hard for someone to cut and style my very long very thick lace front...and what do you know...Holly was there to the rescue. She cut it so well that people have a very hard time trying to figure out if it is my natural hair! Thanks Holly your the best!

I went yesterday to Acme and Holly was the stylist who worked on my hair. She did an AMAZING job. i love my new hair cut and color so much! She is the best hairstylist i have been to. I totally recommend her. I couldnt be happier. It was perfect. She worked so hard on my hair, even though its crazy thick, and i just love how it turned out. Thanks Holly!

Pros: Perfect cut and awesome colors

Cons: Took a long time, but my hair is also more thick than normal

I wanted a hair cut that would make a statement about what type of person that I am. Something fun, and easy going, young and decidedly hip. I saw a girl on the street with a totally cute hair cut and asked here where she had gotten her hair done and she told me all about HOLLY at acme. Since the girl had such amazing things to say about this holly i decided to make an appointment for a cut AND color. Big step for me. I made an appointment online, which was super easy, and Holly's evening hours worked great with my schedule. Acme, where Holly works is cute and retro and has the most comfortable shampoo chairs you will ever sit in. Each stylist has their own 50's looking vanity, so you have a lot of personal space, you won't have other clients or stylists falling all over you, like in other salons. And did i like my hair? I LOVED IT. it is exactly what I never even knew I wanted. Its better then what I ever thought my hair could look like. She took into account my personal style, face shape and coloring... even how much time I put into my hair.

It's been about 5 weeks since I saw Holly, and I get compliments on my hair almost everyday. I have been recommending her to all of my friends and even my mom went to go see her... now all of her friends are starting to see Holly! Do yourself a favor and make an appointment to see Holly while you still can... She is going to have a very busy and bright future!

I too followed Kiblerly to Acme from GSquared. Yesterday I got the best color I've ever had - again. I went in with all blong hair and came out looking like Giselle (well, the hair did). Just like in the picture I had with me. She is amazing! She totally gets what a want and does exactly that. My hair is in so much better condition now then when we first started over a year ago. And did I mention, the woman is great fun - you will not be bored while getting the best color ever.
I also love the Davines products Acme sells. The location is easy to get to -right across from Banana.

I am shocked. That after nearly 4 months since I last received my hair coloring from Kimberly G, I am still getting complements on how well the job was done. If you're a student like myself or either forgets to maintain regular touch-ups, you must see Kimberly G!! She has a signature color weaving technique that makes one feel like their coloring was just done yesterday!! I naturally have dark black hair, which makes a daunting coloring job, but definitely not for Ms. G...

I agree with some of the other reviews. Preston is by far the most talented stylist I have been to here at Acme. See for yourself and if you try Acme you must see Preston as he is above and beyond the rest with incredible talent and insight to your particular lifestyle and desires. Thanks Preston...

I have been going to Preston for a bit over a year now and I always leave with exactly what I asked for. About a month ago, he was booked and I needed to get in to see someone before I left on a two week vacation! I decided to go to one of the stylists who is quite promoted as of late through the Citysearch reviews. Actually she was the only one available (I now know why!). Ouch! My color was all wrong although she used his formula. I'm guessing it was her technique (or maybe she had just stayed out too late the night before!). She offered a redo -- but I didn't have the time to come back before I left. Lesson learned -- Just because one stylist is fantastic, doesn't mean they all are. I'm back to Preston to stay.

I met Preston on the set of a photoshoot for my dance company when he was doing hair and makeup for the shoot and have been seeing him regularly for my blonde highlights and cuts ever since. Preston is fabulous! He is especially talented at choosing the perfect highlights and lowlights to work beautifully with your coloring. The chemicals he uses also do not dry out my hair the way they have at other salons, my hair actually has looked much healthier since I started working with Preston. I get so many compliments on how natural and pretty my color looks.
Preston is also wonderful with choosing a stylish cut to frame your face and bring out your features. He is the kind of stylist you can trust to give you a gorgeous cut and color without even having to ask specifically for exactly what you want. Often I just plop down in the chair and let him do his magic and I am so happy with the results.

He is the kind of stylist you can trust to give you a gorgeous cut and color without even having to ask specifically for exactly what you want. Often I just plop down in the chair and let him do his magic and I am so happy with the results.

Ok. So I hate my hair. I mean hate. And I hate going to the hairstylist because hairstylists always pull out the hair tie and their eyes get wide at my crazy, scrawny, little strands. But not Preston, because Preston is no hair stylist - he is a genius. He listens intently and asks a million questions - my favorite star's hair, problems I have with my own hair, issues I have with styling it (which is basically everything), and what kind of hair I hope to someday have. He's especially good with color. To be honest, when I leave the salon, the color's not quite what I wanted. But after one wash, it's perfect and it stays perfect. I'm always trying to grow my hair out, so I never want much off. He suggests what he thinks my hair needs, then asks what I want, and actually listens.

Furthermore, not only is Preston amazingly gifted at what he does, but he is also the most attentive stylists I've ever had. I have always meant to write a raving review about him but decided that today was the day this morning. I had a moment of inspiration after watching "Devil Wears Prada" last night and decided to cut myself some sassy super-model bangs. Let's just say they weren't quite sassy or super-modelish, but boy were they bangs. In a moment of panic, I called the salon and Preston turned out to be on vacation. An hour later I got a phone call from Preston who said he called as soon as he'd heard. He laughed with me when I explained my situation, assured me that they would fix it and immediately arranged for me to see another, equally gifted stylist this weekend. What a champ. He even sends thank you notes and follow up emails and includes a yummy scalp rub when he washes my hair.

The salon itself is chic, clean, and comfortable. Conversations drift from chair to chair and the owner always comes by to say hello with a fresh cup of coffee. I've only seen Preston, but from the smiles and glows I see from everyone else as they walk out, I'd say just get in there.

Kimberly is GREAT -- I followed her to Acme from GSquared (and Acme is SO much better -- a hip, relaxing place I love going to) and I have the best color I've ever had. I moved to SF from LA and had been travelling back to my stylist in LA for years (very expensive way to get your hair done, lemme tell ya) but not anymore! Kimberly totally "gets it" and understands what I want. In addition to coming away with fabulous hair, Kimberly makes you as comfortable as if she were entertaining you in her home.

When I quit my fancy pants stylist for being too pricey, I wasn't sure I would find anyone else as fabulous. I was referred to Preston at Acme when I needed hair/makeup assistance for a photo shoot. He was professional, efficient and so sweet! The images were beautiful, so I made an appointment for a cut. He listens to what I want, gives realistic suggestions when I don't know what I want and makes me gorgeous before I leave the chair. He's consistently on time and gives me his total focus during our appointment. I love him and I'm sure you will too!

Pros: All the stylists seem friendly, easy on-line appointments

Cons: Downtown location almost requires parking garage

I first went to ACME in search of a facial moisturizer with no intention of getting a haircut. A friendly stylist not busy with a client helped me to locate my moisturizer and at the end of the transaction offered me his business card. I later reflected on this sylist's personable persona and months later decided to give him a try. Preston is a great sytlist in addition to being a sparkling personality. The atmosphere at ACME is relaxed and casual. I enjoy Preston's attention to detail and desire to work with his client's changing needs. Definitely a special find in the City.

I moved to San Francisco last summer and since I am a woman who knows what she wants, I found ACME because they used Davines hair color and other products that I had been using in my last salon. The product line has been amazing for my hair, I have gotten more comments that people think I am a natural blond! Best compliment to the product and stylist. I picked Preston out of the stylist lineup and am SO glad I did! We have had the greatest time at each appointment and I have gotten more compliments ever since. He does my cut and color both, I'm always relaxed and feeling beautiful when I leave. Preston is always really quick to respond to emails, calls, and listens to my needs. Love it!

Cons: price, but it's worth it!!!

I love Acme head and body!!! I was referred by my sister to go see Preston Nesbit to get my hair cut and styled. She get's her hair cut and highlighted by him and it always looks like she just got it done, and really healthy too. Since seeing him I get so many more comploments about my hair. The salon is really cute and the service there is really great. Go see Preston if you want amazing hair!!!

After losing my go-to stylists and spending three years of trying out different stylists in the city, I finally found the perfect match for my needs! Last fall, Preston set me up with a low maintenance yet stylish cut and color - I was able to go months with a trim or touch up. A few weeks ago, I booked an appointment with Preston and brought in some photos of cuts that were radically different than what I had been doing. He helped me pick the best one for my hair and face, and then proceeded to give me the best haircut I've ever had. I can do anything with it - it's totally versatile and easy to manage. When I got back to the office, people literally stopped in their tracks to compliment my "new hair", saying it completely changed my presence. Since then, I've been telling everyone I know about Preston's skills. He is truly talented, along with being a very nice guy!

Pros: Preston is great, very relaxed atmosphere, nice folks all around

Cons: Price - It's worth it, but still a stretch for the budget-burdened

The Scene
On a street of big retail names, chic coffee shops and trendy galleries, this hip salon blends in swimmingly. Occupying the second floor of an industrial-type building, the view is all cityscape while the inside is…
