This is probably one of the greatest SPA service center in town! The staffs are well-manered and always put a smile on their face. That's what you call a world-class service.

I am here once in every month, and the service improves from time to time. They are good at maintaining customers and making them happy. This SPA service center is definitely the one for me.

They do good work here, I love the way they handle some of the things that I never know how to use. They told me about contouring as well

For many years, after many ruinous haircuts and blowouts that made me look like an unkempt Medusa, I did some internet research and was led straight to Alexander G's and Aimee. This woman is a magician. She knows and carefully cuts and styles your hair, so that you look better\nthan you ever have in your life!!!!The place itself is out\nby the Legion of Honor, a bit of a trek for me, but SO\ntotally worth it. I feel pretty most of the time now\n,instead of hiding my head waiting for my hair to grow. Everyone at Alexander G's is competent, kind, professional, and very skilled at all things hair. This is the place for anyone to come and feel comfortable, and\nget the best service in San Francisco. Thanks!!!!

Being new to a big city can be daunitng in countless ways. Being a guy who has hair that needs a ""stylist"" vs. the clippers of a barber and finding a quality cut is one of the more un-nerving (to me).\r\n\r\nAfter some overpriced, less-than-personal experiences, i have found my safety nest. Love that Tatum! A pro all the way, she cleans and clips like its in her genealogical composition-i am a client for life. I like to let my hairstyle reflect phases and somehow she has made it so each phase looks fab- kudos.

Salon professionals all the way; I highly recommend them. Pleasant customer service, with a lot of product knowledge and they are up to date with the latest trends. I walked out feeling like a new women. Need I say more? :) Just Go!

After 4 years of having Jennifer color and style my hair, I went back east for 6 months to take care of some work obligations. WELL - even with instructions that had been hand written by Jennifer, the stylist in the east ruined my hair. When I walked out of the east coast salon -instead of having natural looking blonde hairlights, my hair was basically one color - ""strawberry blonde"" AKA Orange!! Needless to say, I traveled 3,000 miles so Jennifer could repair the damage and she did! Plus - she offered to help me locate a stylist in the east that I could go to when I has out of the Bay area.

Some say they left their heart in San Francisco - well that is half true for me as I left my stylist there and miss his wicked skills, charm, and professional attitude. I have NEVER had a bad cut or color and wish I could have taken some of this magic to go. This salon is top notch!! Now please open a Portland location :) You people rock and I miss you!!\n\n- ciao bella\n- T

I had always had the pin-straight, no body hair blues, until I visited with Aimee. I don't know how she did it, but she cut my hair in such a way that I was able to have lift and volume with my medium/long hair!! She has the savvy and skill to cut and style with perfect angles and layering to give my hair life!! Aimee even highlighted and lowlighted my hair to give it perfect depth! \r\n\r\nI am so impressed with Aimee's talent that now my husband goes to her faithfully! I am extremely elated by this because he has been a product of unfortunate barber-shop, $10 hair cuts since I met him 15 years ago. \r\n\r\nWithout any hesitation I would highly recommend Aimee for a superb cut and style!!!\r\n

I LOVE GOING HERE TO GET MY HAIR CUT!!!!!! Always a great experiece. I've been having Aimee do my hair for about 5 months now...can't complain. She is always making sure she knows what i want. My hair is perfect all the time( thanks to Aimee :p). Aimee is so professional and makes sure I'm happy when i leave even though I have a huge smile on my face, due to my cut, which would give the answer right there. I always refer my friends here. THANKS AIMEE!!!!!!!\r\n\r\neLePhAnTsHoE ; )

This is the absolute worst and least professional experience of my life. I was really excited about this place, and after reading the reviews and looking at the website I thought that it would be a good match. Upon calling, I was very clear with the receptionist about my needs and desires and she recommended Amy (who I must say I felt uneasy about, but thought I would trust the receptionist that she knew what she was talking about). I arrive there and the receptionist was very kind and polite. Amy acted like she knew what I wanted to hear, but did not deliver. She promised to cut 1 half inch and cut about 2 and a half inches. Additionally, she rushed me out in the last five minutes to do the worst styling I have ever seen done to my hair. I honestly left this place wanting to cry and trying to muster whatever kindness towards these people I still could. Finally I call them, and they say that if I want to go to another stylist I will have to pay the full price or go back to Amy and let her fix her mistake. There is no way I will let Amy touch my hair again. I already trust her once, and I find it ridiculous that they will make me pay for a new haircut. I didn't even want Amy in the first place, but the receptionist convinced me that she was the one. Don't trust these people...better yet don't go here. I was impressed by how the owner responds to the citysearch adds and takes responsibility. That was what gave me confidence that it would be alright even if some of the negative adds in citysearch are true. Well, it is all an illusion...they will make a mistake and won't take responsibility. Worst experience of my life hands down...I have never experienced a worse haircut, style, or overall professional experience. I can't stress this enough...

My haircut with Amy about a week ago is so awesome. It looks cool and modern and has lots of movement. Can't help but stare at myself in the mirror ;)

Pros: ""Nounou"" shampoo is the best!

I have dishwater blonde hair that is wavy and easily gets frizzy. Since finding Jennifer almost three years ago (just after she started at Alexander G,) I have had the most manageable hair that I have ever had. My highlights and lowlights always look great and my cuts are always fantastic. Not only does my hair look great when I leave the salon, but her cuts are so dead-on that I can recreate the just-left-the-salon style in less than 15 minutes with my roundbrush and hairdryer. AND I can still leave my hair curly when I want to.\r\n\r\nThanks, Jenn, for giving me the best hair of my life and minimizing the time I have to spend in front of the mirror in the morning.

Pros: Great service and results, parking isn't too bad

I chose this salon based on the reviews from this site and I was unfortunately disappointed. I paid top dollar ($85) for the experienced stylist who was ""good with short hair."" I even brought in clippings from a magazine of my desired haircut to better explain what I was looking for. She started off going at a good pace but I felt she rushed towards the end as her hour was up and another client was already waiting. The rushing at the end, resulted to an uneven haircut. I called to have it corrected and learned that the stylist was on vacation. Since I live and work outside of the city, I was unable to come back when she would return from her vacation. After much explaining and requesting, they were able to accommodate me with a correction appointment a few days later. To my surprise, the gal who was tasked to correct my hair was the gal who was answering phones the first time I was there. (I am assuming that a high end salon wouldn't have their top stylist answer phones.) I felt duped especially having paid for a top stylist! Bless her heart, she was very patient and meticulous, but just not a very good stylist (you just know when you get a good haircut vs. one that isn't). My hair still doesn't fall right and I even need pins to make it look ok for work. What can I do? I have short hair so I'll have to wait til it grows out... This is by far, the worst haircut I have had! Take-away: Over-rated!! At the end of the day, what matter isn't everyone else's reviews /experiences, but YOURS!

I've been looking for a nice place to get my hair done. I've purposely looked for a highly rated salon in an effort to get a really nice look I could be proud of. I wanted someone to give me a really nice color - to even out the line around my head because I?m tired of keeping my highlights up. I wanted one color and a cut to clean me up. I called and introduced myself as a first time caller and if I can make an appointment with someone to work with me. Before I explained what I wanted, the receptionist went through a list of stylists, their names, their years of employment and ""experience"" at the shop, and prices per stylist. I was told that years of ""experience"" deemed the price of each person's styling services. While I appreciate paying for ""experience"", I failed to understand what it meant for me and what I needed. I had a specific need, and expected to call and be matched to the stylist most experienced to help me correct my problem. I was not given that opportunity. Instead, I was left to choose based on ""experience"" and being a first time caller, (and an online marketing executive), I was left to make a decision I was not able to make with confidence. I decided not make an appointment because the first point of contact didn't create an ""experience"" for me to feel comfortable and confident about spending a lot of money. I rated this below average due to poor customer service, which sadly many pay a premium for when patronizing this salon.

I just moved to SF from LA. The past few times I went to my ex-hairdresser she did not listen and rushed me through the color leaving me dissatisfied twice in a row. Thank goodness I found Aimee at Alexander G in SF. I do not have the funds to pay top dollar so I chose the cheapest out of the four stylists (not that it was a cheap adventure - $190 for full highlights and cut). But I was so impressed. The salon is calm and tranquil and Aimee really took the time to listen to what I wanted out of my cut and color. I was so pleased with the result. I will continue to go to Aimee for life. But make sure to leave about three hours for the process - it is well worth it!

I went to see Jennifer back in April for my final haircut before I re-located to New York. My hair is very short and cropped and Jennifer always makes it look feminine, well textured, and fresh. She knows that since my hair grows quickly, the texture is thick, and that it's SHORT, it should only be cut with a razor. SHE IS AMAZING WITH HER RAZOR!! I promise you, every time she cut my hair I never left a haircut feeling anxious to ""grow into the cut"", hating how they styled it, wishing they took more or less off, OR WORST OF ALL, LOOKING LIKE A BOY! It's been almost 2 months since my fantastic last hair cut with Jennifer and I know I'll have to find someone else to cut my hair here in New York very soon. This new stylist will have a lot to live up to. I also want to add that this is also the first time that I'm enjoying the grow out of my hair. It doesn't look as if the cut is in an ""awkward grow-out stage"" AT ALL!! Aside from her great talent and skill, she has an extremely pleasant and down-to-earth disposition. If you have short hair or want to make the transition to very short hair and are nervous about who to turn to, I assure you that you can totally trust Jennifer AND that' you'll never go anywhere else! OH!! ALSO, I TOOK THE #2 MUNI TO THE SALON FROM DOWNTOWN AND RAN INTO A DELAY ALONG THE WAY AND ENDED UP ARRIVING ABOUT 30 MINUTES LATE!! SHE WAS SO UNDERSTANDING AND NEVER SEEMED AS IF SHE WAS RUSHING THROUGH ANYTHING!! SHE EVEN TOOK TIME OUT TO LOOK AT PICTURES WITH ME BEFORE WASHING MY HAIR TO MAKE SURE WE BOTH KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED!! I DON'T THINK ANYONE COULD ASK FOR A BETTER STYLIST!

I saw Alex several times and then decided to try a different salon (even though I was happy with his work; I just have a hard time sticking to one thing). Let's just say, my adventures out there were far from good, some even disastrous. But now, in an awkward situation, with messed up hair, I couldn't possibly go back to the man I had cheated on!! Well, here I am 7 months later, back at Alexander G. and so grateful that Alex has welcomed me back with open arms. I'm reminded again why I came to this salon in the first place. Kind, understanding and unparalleled results. In my experience, I had met quite a few stylists that I know would surely give me the cold shoulder if they knew I had tried another salon. It's nice to know, Alexander G. is above and beyond that.

I recently went to Alexander G. on a recommendation from a friend. I saw Jennifer, senior stylist, for highlights and Alexander for the haircut. They were kind, attentive and the work was great--my hair looks fabulous. The synchronicity and atmosphere was an impressive experience. I completely recommend this salon to anyone.

I've now been going to see Jennifer for a little over a year. I wrote about my first experience on this site earlier and how she fixed a disastrous color done at the number one rated salon in SF/Berkeley. My hair is an amazing color, she really worked with my skin and eye color. It is dramatic and arresting. I get stopped on the street constantly with women asking where I get it done. Jennifer can cut too, for the first time in about a hundred years, I didn't have to wait a week for it to look good and I didn't have to run home and re style my hair, before going out in public.\r\nThis may be my best experience in close to 25 years of high end salons in Los Angles, NYC and SF.\r\nI have never written a review for a business before this experience , but just had to for Jennifer and Alex G salon.\r\nThe salon is always a pleasure to visit, it is not this freaked out over the top, noisy, chaotic, ""scene"". It is peaceful, sophisticated and I don't come out of there feeling like I have been at a too noisy, too coked up party. It is just right. I always feel like I was one of one or two clients the whole day. That is a singularly rare experience.

A positive experience, overall. I called for an appointment and was given one with Jennifer for the following day...well, then they called back and apparently Jennifer couldn't (didn't want to?) do it, so they placed me with Becca...on the same day I called! Pretty miraculous. The salon was very pleasant, clean and orderly. I was treated very cordially by the receptionist (who appears to also be a stylist, or at least an assistant). I was offered coffee or tea and settled for water, which was kept replenished throughout my stay.\r\n\r\nBecca listened carefully and then provided a very good color job (highlights and lowlights) and a very professional cut.\r\n\r\nMy only objection may be my own fault. I was willing to pay what to me was a fairly exhorbitant price for what I hoped would be a new, more exciting look. I told Becca, ""I want to put myself in your hands."" My hair does now look very nice and healthy, and falls and moves better, although the style has no particular pizzazz, and the color, while very professional, is not particularly exciting...I sort of went from mousy blonde to nondescript brown. I wish I had known better what to ask for. I had hoped that in my ""consultation"" she might have shown some enthusiasm or insight other than a wish to eliminate the sharp contrast between the colors from my last color weave elsewhere. I am trying to talk myself into feeling better, but I am not excited when I see my new look in the mirror, and after paying for the services including the tip and purchasing the shampoo and conditioner, I was about $300 poorer...and Becca's not even one of the ones commanding the highest fees in this place.

★★★☆☆

A positive experience, overall. I called for an appointment and was given one with Jennifer for the following day...well, then they called back and apparently Jennifer couldn't (didn't want to?) do it, so they placed me with Becca...on the same day I called! Pretty miraculous. The salon was very pleasant, clean and orderly. I was treated very cordially by the receptionist (who appears to also be a stylist, or at least an assistant). I was offered coffee or tea and settled for water, which was kept replenished throughout my stay.\r\n\r\nBecca listened carefully and then provided a very good color job (highlights and lowlights) and a very professional cut.\r\n\r\nMy only objection may be my own fault. I was willing to pay what to me was a fairly exhorbitant price for what I hoped would be a new, more exciting look. I told Becca, ""I want to put myself in your hands."" My hair does now look very nice and healthy, and falls and moves better, although the style has no particular pizzazz, and the color, while very professional, is not particularly exciting...I sort of went from mousy blonde to nondescript brown. I wish I had known better what to ask for.

Pros: Pleasant ambiance, highly competent stylists/colorists

Cons: Very pricey, no real enthusiasm for me as an individual in search of a ""look""

After going to the no.2 pick on this list for a color, and having my wishes ignored, over ruled, my scalp burned (scabs), I walked out, went home and looked in the mirror. I HATED MY HAIR, it was everything I didn't want. The owner's words to me after it was done, were ""Paris Hilton, look out"" !!!\r\nTotally freaked out, I called Alex G, on Friday and told them that my hair was a disaster and could they help.\r\nThey made an apt the next day, a Saturday.\r\nI saw Jen, who sat down and actually said, ""the only thing that matters is what YOU want. I don't live with your face, you do. Tell me what you want, and I will do my best"". She explained that she would only advise me not to do something ONLY if she thought it would be a complete disaster, but ultimately my hair was my choice. What a concept.\r\nI thought my scalp was pink because of the color, but she discovered how raw it was. She was very concerned that further color might hurt my scalp and so we proceeded extremely cautiously. She was very careful and gentle.\r\nMy hair went from a pink- apricot to the platinum I wanted in the first place. She was kind, thoughtful and caring. Completely professional, never said a bad word about the previous stylist, what respect she showed.\r\nMy hair looks utterly fantastic. I thanked her a dozen times and then called again on the way home to thank her again. \r\nI will very happily drive from Berkeley to the other side of the world, the Richmond, to see her regularly.\r\nAnd the salon was peaceful, and relaxed. It was busy but the atmosphere was calm.\r\nFantastic salon. I give Alex G. the highest recommendaton.

I really enjoy coming to the this salon. I look forward to speaking with Alex about British music and just relaxing in his chair and knowing I'm in good hands. I also got great travel tips from him for when I went to London last year--a place I would definitely be living in if I could afford it. But for now, I can afford Alex's cuts and that's, in my opinion, the next best thing.

Very delighted with the outcome of my hair today at Alexander G.! What a nice atmosphere and kind people. Everyone has something bad to say about every hair salon in the city, but hair salons are extremely difficult environments to work in--all us needy women have such high expectations and demands! :) Sound familiar? Well, I have my own set of expectations and demands but this salon can satisfy me more than I hoped and I will definitely be coming back. Everyone was super nice and upbeat and I can tell they really love what they do. I think this place is great. I love you Alex G. for making my hair so X@#$ beautiful!!

Pros: customer service made me feel like a queen

Cons: that I can't take my stylist home w/me to do my hair every day!

I was a client of Jen's for approximately 9 months and was satisfied with the quality of the colors and cuts. I have had instances where I thougth she might be having a bad day, so I gave her the benefit of the doubt. However, at my last and final visit to her I felt I was completely snubbed. I was exactly 7 minutes late for my appointment and was told that I needed to reschedule. I am by no means making excuses for being late, but I felt I was a loyal client of hers and have referred many people to the salon. It seems that she would be somewhat considerate of this. However she was extremely snobbish and unjustifiably arrogant. I felt her behavior was bizarre and unwarranted. Nonetheless, I have called all of the people I have referred to her and told them of the incident. As a result they have sworn not to return. I hope in some way she can realize that her behavior is unecessary and furthermore I hope Alexander will realilze that her behavior is a poor reflection on his business and name.

my reply to coachgirl's post on 05/25/2006..i agree with her strongly. it is more than safe to say i care the most about QUALITY; alexander g. salon provided great service, however..coachgirl said alex only spent 2 minutes. when he cut my hair and did my highlights, the hightlights took over an hour (which is good), but with my haircut, after rinsing out my hair EXTREMELY ROUGHLY, he started cutting my hair...and wa-la! about TEN minutes later, at most fifteen...he finished cutting my hair! which i found ridiculous (that is the time normally spent for a guy's hair, not on one of woman's most important feature: her HAIR!!!). my old hairstylist from another salon always spent at LEAST a quality 40 minutes to an HOUR to make sure my hair is perfect in every angle, she would blowdry my hair in differnet directions to make sure it evan looks nice when the wind is blowing it + when its down. also making corrections until its absolutely flawless. alex just trimmed my hair, i didnt want to complain afterwards. i paid my 500 dollars for the highlights + cut and left. i felt like crying. all i know is im never going back. i don't know why theres so many perfect reviews for this company. sure the service is great but not the most important thing; the style and quality of the hair. i've been around many different S.F. salons + i know what i'm talking about, if you feel like taking a risk..try this salon. i'm disappointed - i expected a whole lot more from this beautiful British salon.

Pros: Beautiful luxurious atmosphere, extremely friendly receptionist, warm drinks

Cons: business-like boss, lack of time spent on haircut if you set two services in one day, lack of dimension + angle in haircut.

I went to the Alexander g. salon recently because two different friends recommended this place to me. Plus I read about this salon in a fashion mag. I saw Jen for highlights, haircut and a glaze. I am extremely happy with the outcome and will continue to go back. My fiancee said my hair looked beautiful and I hadn't told him I went to a salon that day. Loved the atmosphere here and I am definitely addicted to the glazes here now too. Gives that extra WOW that everyone seems to notice.

I made my apt. based on reviews from citysearch. However, from the moment I walked in I was disappointed. The music was super loud and quite obnoxious and the place was empty. The decor inside was nice though and my stylist was waiting for me. I mentioned several times my two key goals and when the stylistic seemed like she understood me we began. I was not offered tea or any of the other niceties mentioned in earlier posts. Though they did turn down the music at my request...probably because there were no other clients/stylists inside. She took more than an hour to cut my hair, which in the end was a very simple, traditional cut...something the folks at supercuts could have handled with ease. However, she did not cut the bangs the way I asked, and the two things I had asked for both were ignored, in fact I had the opposite. Now, to her credit, she was very nice the whole time and suggested I go home and try it out and if I wasn't happy I could come back and she would fix it. So I went home and really hated the cut and the fact that she had not listened at all to my requests. I called the next day and she took me right away as her schedule was completely free. When I went in I expressed my frustration and she listened. However, her response was that normally people who ask for the items I was asking for really don't want that and she didn't want to cut it the way I asked because she thought I wouldn't like it. No matter how much I insisted she wouldn't cut it the way I asked. Finally in frustration I had her fix the bangs and make the other cuts even and I left...very frustrated and unhappy. For that kind of money I expect a stylist to listen and to cut my hair the way I ask. I know, after questioning her that she didn't have a lot of experience, but that is the most important thing to learn....TO LISTEN. Wouldn't go there again.

Becca gave me an amazing, super-fun haircut. It's only been a day and I've already recieved a dozen compliments. The atmosphere there is extremely relaxing and everyone is very friendly and attentive. I would certainly recommend going there -- and seeing Becca in particularly! Thanks a bunch!!

I love this salon. I once went there to get my hair done - it was fabulous. I left with the most beautiful hair-cut for $80 total. It was very expansive but totally worth it. My hair stayed healthy for a full month! Thanks Alexander G!

(I recomend going there on a Wednesday - it is less crowded then!)

Love this place. A true delight. Very nice people work here. Attentive to every need and I have quite a few :) I've been here about 20 times or so and had service ranging from cuts, color blowdrys, a live enzyme treatment, etc always accompanied by my cup of tea. It's so relaxing. My friend waits about an hour to even get her haircut started at a different salon so I think she'll be converting to Alexander G. soon. Good decision! I hear they will even start booking appts for eyelash applications. Nice...

Love this salon. Alex is amazing--a true Brit hairstylist that knows his color/haircuts inside out. The stylists that work for him are very nice too and seem very genuine. I really like coming here. I've been to way too many places that keep you waiting an hour before your cut and you end up in that salon for about 4 hours! If time is precious to you but you want excellent work done on your hair where you feel good when you look in the mirror when you get home, this is the place.

I've been doing my color with Alexander and it's been good, on the pricy side though. This time I decided to cut my hair. BAD IDEA! After my color, he had another client waiting for him. He spend 2 minutes on cutting my hair. At the time, I thought maybe he's just that good, it doesn't look that bad. Total with color came to almost $500! Got home, the haircut is sooooo bad! Not worth it! I recommend if you're doing both, make 2 separate appointments! Or get your haircut somewhere else and save the $150!

I have been going to Alexander G for the past four years and every time I go it just gets better. The owner of the salon, Alex is INCREDIBLY talented and creative. I have changed my hair style and color numerous times and every time is a complete smash. The entire staff is also incredibly friendly and helpful. I have read some reviews about the staff being rude, but I have never encountered that kind of behaviour in my numerous dealings with them over the years. I highly recommend this place. It is a true gem.

Excellent service. Excellent staff. Excellent work on hair. Inviting environment. Always more than pleased with the results. What more can one want. No chaos and it's nice to deal with people who know exactly what they're doing. And the price fits the experience and expertise. (I'm not interested in salons that keep you there for 4 hours as they pass you around and talk about themselves.) This place is serious about what they do and it shows.

My encounters at this hair salon have always been positive and I have been frequenting this place since June of 2005. I have done the rounds with so many salons in the city and no one has been better than my experiences at Alexander G. I like to change my hairstyle often so I can try different things and every time I leave ecstatic. Now that's what I call very creative and talented, and my hair is not the easiest to deal with either. And I always have amazing lowlights that are so easy to maintain and I don't see ugly regrowth! There's nothing worse than that. I'm an Alexander G. fan!

My experience started and ended with a phone call to make a appointment, the (gentleman) that I spoke with was very rude and not at all concerned with my questions as a new client, when I took a few seconds of his time to inquire as to who my appointment would be with he responded, well how much do you want to spend? he had already given me the service prices. The interaction just got worse,he was angry, sarcastic and rude. Someone should remind them that attitude in the salon, no matter how good you think you are, is long gone and is no longer tolerated. As a business owner myself I am VERY aware that the old saying, the customer is always right is back and lets face it Everyone is replaceable.

I've seen Alex 2 times now and think he's fabulous! I never felt he was cocky or rude. We've always had nice conversations and he even remembered my stories after 3 months and only 1 visit. Even better than personality is the hair. The full head of highlights and lowlights looked amazing. Best I ever had. The haircut suited me perfectly, but my hair is baby fine and needs products for hold and he believes in very little product usage. When I did my own hair, though, everything fell in just the right places. He does exactly what I want and doesn't cut too much. Expensive, but good work.

I just had a haircut with Sean from Alexander G. I live out of town and am just here for a couple of weeks for work, so I took a gamble not really knowing what this place was about. Sean was very attentive, very detailed, and gave me exactly what I wanted. He took his time, and I did not feel rushed at all. On top of that, he's a really nice guy. Thanks, Sean!

I've been going to this salon for over a year now and every time I walk out of there, I feel great. Every cut has been fantastic and Alex and his team really listen to what the customer wants. The color work is amazing. I usually arrive early and notice that every person who walks by me after he/she has had their hair done looks really really good. And beautifuly styled too. I have absolutely no complaints and they are very respectful. A nice change from the negative people out there!

""Super sexy"" is what I've been told of my new hair style. Easy to mantain and even looks great when I wake up. My cut has subtle bangs that fall in just the right places in front of my eyes. I know it was done on purpose, based on my face shape, but it sure looks unintentional and natural. And the layers make my hair move in ways I've never had it before. I feel like I never want this cut to grow out. I'll be sure to go back again. I also got a live enzyme treatment with my shampoo and I do feel it made a difference in my hair's health. Feels and looks great.

I went to Alexander G. (my appt was with Alex) after spending two miserable weeks staring at the horrible blonde highlights put in at another salon. I went in with hair that had been highlighted with bleach and left terrible roots. I arrived early and he was already ready for me, he spent approx 20 minutes discussing and showing photos of colors/highlights to figure out what I was looking for and gave me an overall color and highlights that were beautiful and golden blonde (instead of a terrible bleach/white blonde). After coloring, we discussed a cut, and he gave me nice long layers. Though expensive, I was there for 3 1/2 hours and very satisfied with my results, with maintenance that is quite reasonable. Overall, though initial cost is high, it is well worth it.

I went to see Mimi at Alexander G. for highlights and hair cut last week. Mimi was able to make sense out of my confusing description of what I wanted. My highlights look gorgeous and Mimi put lowlights in to enhance the lighter color in my hair. And it all looks so natural. I can't believe how great it looks. And combined with my awesome, sexy new hair cut, I am so happy, and it's a relief to find a stylist who I can trust.

I recently moved to San Francisco from London. I had a fabulous stylist there. My new friends and coworkers complained about their hair here and I knew I was going to need my hair done soon. I decided to call my old stylist in London for advice. He was quick to recommend the Alexander G. salon--him and Alex used to work together in London. I went to see Alex for hair color and highlights. It was truly fantastic. Alex was a good listener and he was able to understand what I wanted. I walked out of the salon extremely satisfied and my hair continues to look fantastic as time goes on.

After reading many reviews, and finding out that this salon was rated very high, I decided to try Alexander. I am ecstatic about the outcome. The result is much better than I anticipated. My haircolor and cut is truly amazing and modern. Alexander was such a gentleman and Rob at the reception was so accommodating. This salon is extremely professional, clean, and overall a very inviting environment. I will let anyone know who is unhappy about their current stylist to try this salon.
