I went to Flip to have a highlight and haircut done by Katie Gilday who recently joined the Flip team.
I walked in and was greeted by the person at the front desk and asked if I would like a beverage and from that point on, I enjoyed my whole experience. My hair came out beautifully and Katie was professional and made just enough conversation with me. My hair came out looking super natural and honestly the best I had seen it look in a long time. Katie told me as we were discussing what I wanted that she believes that "less is more" and I absolutely loved that. And the final result was subtle and beautiful.The price was right and the service was excellent. The salon was clean, but could have used a little more life and upbeat ambiance....

Pros: Great Location on Chestnut Street

.

I have consistently, over a period of 2-3 years, had the best cut and color of any salon, anywhere. Shannon Juarez is a genius with color, I have had color done all over the country, including the big name salons in NYC and have not been as happy with the outcome. In addition, Flip is located in a fantastic neighborhood, come early and stay late, great spot to spend the day. Shopping and many cafes. Salon is comfortable, stylish and friendly.

Cons: parking can be a problem.

This is a somewhat hidden gem! I highly recommend Flip. My stylist was Shannon Juarez, a friendly, down-to-earth, intelligent woman who left me feeling like a comfy friend by the end of the appointment. I've never been more pleased with a haircut and will definitely be back.

When you get stopped on the street on a weekly basis by people who compliment your hair-you know you've got a good thing going! Shannon-the owner of Flip gives me awesome just for me highlights and fun cuts every time!

This is my first time writing a review, only because I am compelled since my experience was that bad! I have had many haircuts from all over the US but nothing and I mean nothing was as bad as this. There are way too many options in this city to settle. Please PLEASE look around and do some research before you book here because most likely you will regret it.

It is hard, very hard to screw up my hair but they somehow managed to do it. I would rethink this place. I don't even think they deserve one star - but I had no choice. :)

I am the owner of Flip and have no idea what the previous reviewer is talking about!! I would never let a client leave with half of her hair done or demand that she pay. Fake reviews are so obviously fake...

I went in to get my hair straightened and they took and said no problem. I have curly hair but its so easy to straighten. I just wanted to have it done due to time. I've gone to many salons all over the world (LA, SF, SD, London, Dublin Ireland, Spain, Italy, etc) and the girl told me after she started that my hair is impossible to straighten. She left my hair frizzy, and fluffy. The owner, came up and and agreed with her stylist. What ever happen to the customer is right!! I ended up walking out after she had done just about half my head. The owner stopped me and demanded I paid full price. My hair looked like a 5year old had tried styling my hair. I reluctantly paid and was so upset. GET YOUR HAIR DONE THERE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I hope things have changed since I was there!

I've been to the Halo Salon a few times for my highlights. I love the atmosphere of this salon - the staff is really exceptional. Very diverse, accomodating and experience. Couldn't have asked for better!

I started coming here because its within walking distance of my house. I've seen four different people, but my favorites are Taylor and Shannon Smith (not the owner- the other one). Both gals have been great about cutting my hair exactly as I tell them or offering suggestions when I am feeling a bit racey. No pressure to buy their products - they always make suggestions but they're fine when I say "eh, no thanks." Taylor is newer and she's so friendly and easy to talk to. Shannon is bubbly and energetic. Two thumbs up.

I recently visited flip to get a highlight and haircut. My stylist was Chelsea. She did an absolutely fabulous job on my hair. She gave me some new recommendations for the color which were genius. The cut turned out just as good. I already booked my next appt and cant wait to go back. Go see Chelsea if you know whats good for you.

As a guy new to the $50 haircut I was reluctant to venture into Flip-It is located around the corner from my apt and I walk by every day...after being pestered by my girlfriend to get a better cut, I went in and got the owner-Shannon to cut my hair. She has alot of experience, explained why scissor over comb grows out better and got me to buy a product-I have always used what someone gave me...all in all a great experience and I'll go back as I have now stepped up a notch on the maintenence ladder!!

Saw Shannon at Flip (also the owner) last week and after 5 compliments over the weekend, I had to join Citysearch and give her a shout-out!!!! My highlights are a great mix of blondes that look natural but..with that extra pizzaz. She suggested the shades to compliment what I had been getting done and also to brighten a blah lowlight someone in that neighborhood (don't bother with ANY OTHER place on Chestnut) had given me. I am a convert and now a loyal client. They have evening hours and Saturdays are fun-they also have Bumble-saves me a trip downtown.

Was moderately satisfied with my highlights, cut and blowdry the last time I went, so I made another appointment. Big mistake. Not only did they get the time of my appointment wrong, when I got there at the exact time of my appointment at 3, they told me that they had my appointment scheduled for 2:45 and had a 15 minute cancellation policy. By then, they had taken a walk-in but the stylist could probably take me in 20-30 minutes. So I canceled my following appointment ,got a cup of coffee and wasted 20 minutes of my extremely scarce "free time" time walking around Chestnut. When I came back 30 minutes later, the owner herself told me that it was now 10 minutes after 3:30 and they close at 5 so there was no way they could take me because it was a 2 hour appointment. So, why did you tell me to come back at all? And now because I came back at 3:40 instead of 3:30, they simply couldn't take me. Please, it's the difference of 10 minutes! I might be griping a bit, but seriously it's 10 minutes. They could have had a return, loyal customer by just staying open 10 minutes later. I expect I lot more out of a small business owner than that. Ruined my whole day. There are too many good salons in this city to have horrible service like that.

Pros: Good location. Decent highlights. Not as pricey as some other places in the neighborhood.

Cons: Horrible service.

I am always complimenting my friend on her highlights and she finally convinced me to see her long-time stylist-Shannon at Flip (she's the owner too). Another GREAT incentive is they are having a referral program for a few months and my friend gave me a 25% off cupon..making it a great deal. I love my super shiny, golden and baby blonde natural looking not streaky highlights. Her blow-out was great and I will return soon for a cut. I loved the salon, no waiting and the staff was very personable and friendly. I think I will miss the shopping from Union Square that I usually do when I get hair services but going here is so much more convenient for me and I can walk from my house-a PLUS!!!!

I have been following Shannon Kitchen-Juarez around town for about 8 years and am so happy with her newish location-I can usually park outfront!!! The lovely Adddie at the front deskfeeds my meter and keeps me in herb tea...my cuts are always current-very stylish and Shannon listens and can cut anything I come up with or she makes suggestions if I want to grow it a little. I really think you should listen to her about your blonde-she knows her stuff-I had been getting baby fine highlights/lowlights and my hair became "muddy"-she straightened it out with a little more of a chunky-but not too chunky-weave and it's perfect!!!!!! I will never venture anywhere else!!

Cons: nothing...

Shannon the owner is horrible. I had my hair cut there 4 or 5 x's and they were Okay cuts, I have really short cute Halle Berry hair and I though we were just tweaking things. My cut the other day, she didn't listen to me, cut is so short you can see parts of my scalp, it is so irregular and jagged. She had the gall then to ask if I wanted to give out some referral cards, when I nearly freaked out, she then offered to pay for my cut or scalping if you really want to know. SHe then had the gall to say "when you come back" ummmm,,,,like never. I turned and left. My hair is so ridiculously short I look like a q tip that a kid drew magic marker on. I don't even want anyone to try to fix it it is so short, so now I walk around looking ridiculous. Go somewhere else......run somewhere else. It looks cute, but doesn't mean she does a good job.

Shannon has been doing my highlights and cuts since she opened her salon last year-I actually live upstairs so this location couldn't be more perfect for me. She always consults before mixing to make sure my color is exact for the season, condition of my hair and mood I'm in. I always listen to her because she is blonde herself and knows her stuff. I won't trust anyone else with my precious locks!!!!! Her salon is adorable, VERY clean and they have great mags and music. I am also lovin' the new desk guy David-super-friendly and he has a terrific smile.

I've been looking for a good place to get highlights for a long time and tried Shannon at Flip recently based (in large part) on the favorable recommendations on this site. I had high hopes, but had an absolutely terrible experience. I have dirty blonde hair naturally and went in requesting some subtle highlights to complement my natural hair color. What I ended up with were bright white streaks all over my head. I've been getting my hair highlighted for 8 years at various salons in NY, DC, and SF. This was by far the worst experience I've ever had.

The inside of this Marina salon is super cute, but I'm sorry to say, you won't be after getting highlights there.

I just have to say that I have searched far and wide for someone who understands how to create natural looking, blond highlights. I finally found them at Flip with Shannon. A fellow blond herself, she really gets it. Not to mention the salon is extremely clean with a relaxing atmosphere, without the hustle and bustle of other downtown salons. I would definitely recommend Flip!

I had the exact opposite experience of the other bride here-she must be SUPER HM and think she's not or have a serious personality problem. Although I did have a different stylist (the other one may not even work there anymore) and I did have a 1/4 in thick stack of likes and dislikes(what bride has NO idea of what she wants???!!!) Jessica really helped me narrow down my options and gave me a fantastic trial expeience the owner-Shannon even brought me a glass of wine-lovely! I had my highlights done by Leonides 2 weeks before and they are perfect for me-gorgeous shade of pale blonde-I will have to return for a trim and lowlights after-can't touch the length now. My day of was relaxing and drama free-as far as the salon goes...the rest of the day...it's all good! Thanks, Jessica & Leonides!

I went here to get my hair done for my wedding (fortunately, this included a trial consultation). Flip had not even ONE picture to look at or photos of past work. I was told that without bringing in a photo, it would be really hard to do my hair -- I thought a consultation was about the stylist helping me to figure that out!! Also I was told my hair was "too short" to put in a low bun, even though it is past my shoulders. My hair ended up in a tiny bun that would have fallen out if I moved my head!! Not good for wedding photos by the GG bridge!! Luckily, I got out of there quickly (and would not pay a dime). On my way out, owner didn't even look up from what she was working on to ask if everything was OK or why my hair wasn't UP!! NOT for updos and especially NOT for even the most relaxed of brides!!

I just went to see Shannon for highlights and a cut...my friend lives in the neighborhood and recommended her. I love, love, LOVE my color-I have had some very stripey, chunky, poor quality color and Shannon explained that I needed lowlights to break up my solid color and someone had put them in too fine at one time and it made my hair "muddy" looking. Makes sense and she fixed me up!!!! My cut is also great-long layers with some side-swept bangs-stylish. She is the owner and you can tell she takes her highlight clients seriously-she is also blonde... I used to go to Union Square and Chestnut is certainly not my idea of the center of hipness but "Flip" deserves all the shout-outs it can get because they are doing some serious downtown quality work-and I parked right out front! I also got my brows shaped by Jenny and she is sweet as pie...I booked a facial and can't wait to go back...

Modern w/ chic ambience, soft buddha-bar like music playing in the background and lighting that agreed with me well! Greeted w/a warm welcome. Shannon, the owner of the salon, also my stylist, sat me down and gave an indepth consultation. In which she made sure that she knew what I was seeking for my new look and what I didn't like about my current look, that made me feel confident. So I just sat back and enjoyed my visit. Loved my new cut and highlights when I left, but the best part, is that for weeks I had that fresh out of the salon look. That's a sign of real talent!! Also they use and sell Bumble and Bumble.

Shannon has been my stylist for 10 or so years and I was so pleased she opened a salon near my house-I didn't expect this!! Her salon is beautiful, relaxing and I love the decor. She always gives me super great highlights and cuts. I just got a facial and some waxing from Lisa and it was excellent. Lisa is a real pro that cares about your results and your skin care plan. I have searched high and low in SF for a great brow girl and YES she's the one-I now have super-model brows!!! The facial bed is the most comfy and warm one I have ever been in! I love Dermalogica and Bumble so this place is one stop shopping for me. Congrats Shannon!!

This place took me by surprise, it is so lovely! I was offered a glass of wine or other bev's, I settled on a glass of chardonay. Ash first sat me down in her chair and we talked about what I wanted to do. I was wanting to be more blonde, and that's what I got, nice shimmery blonde highlights and some bouncy long layers. After I was done I was able to get my eyelash tinting and brows shaped, and I left with my fav. conditioner. Also, my boyfriend who isn't a reviewing type of guy, but he also got his hair cut, only with another stylist named Chelsea, which I am very happy with :) She cut his whole head with scissors and only did a little clean up with the clippers, which to us is a real sign of someone that knows how to cut hair.

This place took me by surprise, it is so lovely! I was offered a glass of wine or other bev's, I settled on a glass of chardonay.

Thank god there is still someone who remembers what "customer service" means. Shannon has thought of every conceivable amenity and ensures not only a memorable cut, but a memorable experience! Their new facialist Sheree shapes brows like no other.

"I have found my new favorite salon...Shannon has some serious talent cutting hair. Serena is also an awesome stylist! I have to agree that Chestnut was definitely in need for a salon like this. Thanks Shannon!

For years, I have been getting my hair cut and highlighted by stylists with extensive buzz, and even longer waiting lists. Out of last-minute desperation, I booked an appointment at Halo several months ago, as it is in my neighborhood. To say that my expectations were exceeded is an undersatement. Serena gave me the best color I have ever had in my life - somehow she was able to master what much older, snootier stylists never could. The girl seems to possess a 6th sense when it comes to hair - she just knows what she's doing. It's a thrill to sit back and watch her work her magic. I guarantee you'll walk out of Halo with more a strut than when you walked in.

This salon is ultra-cute, and my cut was great. My highlights however were almost non-existent. I know that my hair is not hard to lighten, so I am left wondering why I paif $100 for a dye job that no one can see.

I live in the Marina and have been going to a "factory" downtown because I thought it was the only place to get super-great and expensive looking highlights. I read about Shannon's salon in "Lucky" and they raved about her technique of subtle lowlights and highlights, just what I needed. A friend had also seen a pic of the salon in 7x7. I LOVE my color, better than I imagined and I loved the salon's atmosphere-so clean (it's new) and stylish-the colors are cool and the design is so glam yet relaxing. I had a glass of Chardonnay and read all the magazines-after having a friendly chat with Shannon. My roommate went to Shannon for a haircut a few days later and got a great haircut-long layers and just the right amount of bangs. This is my new place and I am looking forward to my next cut and color...

Pros: consultation, decor, magazines

Thank you Serena, my highlights are gorgeous - and my cut is perfect. I was ready for a fresh look and chose Halo based on the reviews on this site. It can be scary trying a new salon - but the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, a glass of wine was offered and Serena listened to what I was looking for. Thank you, I am very happy, and will come back!

Pros: unpretentious, friendly, stylish

I'm usually very uneasy about trying a new colorist...my highlights usually come out looking bronze or red instead of golden brown. Serena was absolutely fabulous. She asked the right questions and listened to what I wanted. My highlights came out perfectly and I have to give her huge credit for dealing with my head of hair because it's very long and I have a lot of it. I would definitely go back to Halo and I'm so happy that this gem is located so close to home!

Ever since I moved here it's been so hard for me to find a good colorist! Thankfully I found Serena at Halo! She matched my color perfectly, and she was located right in my neighborhood. She made me feel so comfortable, and was totally focused on me. It's good to know that there is someone out there who still listens AND gives great customer service.

I'm so glad there is a good place for a man to go get his haircut on Chestnut Street now. Serena did a great job on my hair! I was so relaxed after consulting with her. Halo has finally brought an upscale touch for salons in the Marina.

I've been going to Shannon for my haircuts since I worked next door in Jackson Square. It has worked so well for me that I followed her to Utopia and now that she's opened up shop on Chestnut, I can walk there. What could be better. And the studio looks great!

Halo, is the best thing Chestnut street has going for it. Up scale salon with great atmosphere, not stuffy, with very talented hair stylists and color experts. Very relaxing, very professional, and you leave feeling great and looking good!

I've followed Shannon around to a few Salons now and although I enjoyed shopping afterward downtown, I have already found some new favorite shops and cute lunch places in her new neighborhood. I love the atmosphere and being street level is so great-it really feels like I'm part of a community now-gotta love that in the hustle and bustle that is SF. I get highlights and cuts that I love and my hair is grows out great-I'm always changing my style and Shannon always listens to me...her desk person is friendly and booking an appointment is a breeze-you're not put on hold forever.

Shannon has been cutting my hair and giving me fine, baby blonde highlights for 11 years. I followed her from Cinta to Jackson Place Salon to Utopia and now I am thrilled she opened a charming and very stylish salon in my hood-no more battling parking garages in Union Square!!! I found Shannon after many, many chunks and streaks at other places and she gets my need for fine, natural and blended. She carries Bumble and Bumble and always has the small sizes for travel or if I want to try something out-love that. I love the decor and colors, I always get my herb tea and she always has "US" and "Lucky" and all my fav magazines-we gab then I catch up on my mags-my favorite way to spend a few hours!!! Congrats Shannon!! Your salon is beautiful!!
