I have never had a stylist who has taken the time to listen to what I wanted and DID NOT want. This surely was not the case with Alex. I have been told that I have difficult hair, however my highlights/lowlights and cut were all great! My appointment with Alex was worth every cent.

Pros: Comfortable Atmospher, adequate parking, friendly staff

That was a few days ago and I have since covered the highlights with an at-hoome haircolor. The highlights only went down a few inches from my scalp (I have long hair) and the color was all wrong for my skin tone. I have a feeling the good reviews on city search might be left by the salons themselves? Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel I wasted my money. And yes, I saw the person that is the most recommended on this site (Alex).

Alex does a fabulous job on my very curly hair. Other stylists in the past have used a razor to thin out my hair and have nearly ruined it, turning it to frizz. Alex knew exactly how to cut and style my hair and now my curls are easy to manage and actually form ringlets. He's so wonderful, I even sent my Mom and she loves her cut!

Pros: Awesome coffee, Friendly and inviting, Clean

I just got a hair cut from MIMI, and she's great! I came in 40 minutes early was taken care of right away. She took a lot of time, washing, cutting, and blow drying my hair. Unlike other salons I've been to, she made sure my layers were symmetrical. She also offered suggestions for my hair she felt would look better on my face, and it was perfect! She was also fun to conversate with; there was never a dull moment. Not only that, but she gave me everyday tips on how to manage, maintain, and keep my hair healthy, considering I flat iron my hair. I have been to salons where they basically spray my hair with water, cut, and that's it. no blow dry, nothing, but MIMI is a pro at what she does with 15 years of experience. =) I am returning next week for highlights.

Pros: professional, talented

The first haircut by Alex was excellent, BUT the three haircuts that followed were really bad, not at all what I need for my face shape. He seemed impatient and distracted the last three times I went, so the workmanship was sloppy. I think it's just a problem with consistency, but needless to say, I'm not going back. It's too bad, because I was so excited after the first haircut, but the price is far too high if I can't rely on the results.

Pros: cute environment

Cons: inconsistent; sloppy work

I had my hair consulted, cut, colored and cared for by Alex, the owner, and was extremely satisified with all the results. My hair used to be dry and lacking of color/shine. It's gorgeous now and my friends/husband have all noticed the big change. I have often read and heard that the British know best when it comes to hair. I believe this to be very true. The training the English must go through does not compare to the short amount of time of beauty training in the U.S. I think Alex's English charm and hair expertise will make anyone happy.

Lauren was my hair stylist and I've got one of the worst hair cut/style ever. The cost of a trim was the same price as a cut. Also the highlights were barely noticeable! She didn't have any recommendations and she kept asking what I wanted to do with my hair but how am I suppose to know exactly what I want? She's the stylist!! She gave a bad service and she totally sucked. It would be a better bet to get hair done from Alex.

I had an excellent experience at Alexander G's. I had my hair colored and cut by a stylist there named Lauren. She listened to what I wanted and gave me beautiful highlights and and great cut. She was extremely friendly and fun along with the rest of the staff. If you are looking for a new stylist or salon I would highly recommend Lauren at Alexander G's

I decided to try Alexander G. since they won Best Color and Best Salon for 2005. And they definitely live up to this. I'm a new client and the treatment I get at this salon is great. Alex spent 15 min. on my consultation narrowing down all the things I disliked about my hair and hair color. He arrived at a solution that was appealing and then he confirmed this by showing me a picture from a magazine, which was exactly what I was thinking of. This really helped me visualize what to expect in the final outcome. When we were done, it was even better than the picture. I highly recommend him. He is very specific and assuring--everything you want in a hairstylist.

I love getting my hair done at this salon. Everyone is very friendly. It's not a hectic, big salon where people don't remember you. They greet me like an olf friend every time. They are fun and warm which makes it easy to relax, and I like the fact that it's away from busy traffic. I get treated very well and I see they give the same respect to other clients too. Besides, the work is amazing and the decor is simple yet sophisticated (very much like top salons in London), so this place gets 5 stars in all areas.

I don't know many women who are consistently happy with their hairdresser but I've been going to Alexander G. for a year and every time, the care taken with my hair is something I've never found anywhere else, and I never feel doubtful sitting in his chair. All the careful attention is wonderful and I always leave feeling really great. A few of my friends (men and women) started going to him to for a few months now and we all agree this salon is top-notch. Excellent outcome on your hair and the cuts and color are of the highest standard. Between my friends and I, we've tried most salons in the city! Alex ensured me he wants every client to be happy when they walk out that door and that is his ultimate goal. And that just works out beautifully when you have a very picky person like myself.

For less than 40 minutes, with LOTS of blow-dry, @ $125, I got a haircut that I need therapy to go out. Needless to say after wash it (the blow-dry), there was no style and the cut was rough. Even though I kept mentioning that I was a busy professional and won't spend much time in the morning maintaining hair, the stylist (A. G) still gave me a hairstyle that the bank covers completely my left eye and need a lot of blow-dry work.\nLast, this salon couldnt do professional straightening in certain way. When I said I could get the straightening somewhere else first and then come back to him for haircut, the stylist ( A.G) said that straightening would not work on my hair, which was proved untrue later on.

I went to Alex G. salon yesterday and I still cant stop looking at my hair. I have never seen my hair so beautiful and shine. Lauren did a superb job. As soon as I came to work this morning everybody in the office noticed my gorgeous hair color and I received a lot of complements.\n\nI have been to many different salons around the city, but this one takes the prize. I received a lot of attention not only from Lauren, but also from Alex who helped me select the right color. Wow! I would recommend this salon to anybody who likes quality without snobby attitude.

It's been a number of years since I've been to a hair salon that actually delivers what it promotes. I got expert advice from Alex, was treated very well, and was even given travel tips to my upcoming trip to London. Overall, my experience was great and have already booked my next appointment for highlights. My hair cut has retained its shape and is easier to manage than all the ones I had prior. Thanks Alex!

What a pleasant surprise. After encountering many disappointments at other salons I was finally able to get the color I was looking for. Alex did a superb job of making my highlights honey-toned instead of yellow. I am thrilled and ready for my new ""Spring Look"".

I honestly look forward to my regularly scheduled visit to Alexander G. To begin with I do not care for or feel comfortable in many of the salons in S.F., however I definitely find Alexander G to be an experience I would not trade. To begin with the receptionist is always so congenial and helpful even when I have, in the past, confused my appointment time. They always make me feel ""special"" and treated with respect, not to mention that I always get a good laugh from Rob along with great hospitality. As for the service itself, there is none better. My wishes are always respected and I am completely at ease that I will come out looking and feeling great. Of course they can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear but they sure do come close.

I have tried many salons around the city, and I believe Alex is the best at what he does. He is very detail-oriented, with fresh and creative ideas. As a male, I don't have any experience with any of the coloring that he's so reknowned for, so I can't speak for that, but Alex's work does consitently exceed my expectations. Additionally, the environment is very stylish and comfortable, and he and his staff make me feel like royalty. Getting my hair cut here is a distinct pleasure that I would recommend to anyone.

I had the very best service and color/cut/styling this week at this salon. I arrived a bit late but Alex was able to make up for the lost time. When you sit in his seat you can immediately tell how skilled he is. He explained what was going on with my hair in detail, and then proceeded to make it beautiful. He was extremely focused. I had a live enzyme treatment and was definitely pampered. The other stylists who worked there all seemed really into their work and I like an environment where everything seems to flow--no chaos. I've told my close girlfriends and they've all made appointments already!

Unfortunately, my experience at Alexander G. bore no resemblance to those of previous reviewers. There was no warm greeting, no tea, no massage. It was rushed and uncomfortable, I was in and out within 45 minutes. So rushed I got the feeling I was late when I was 10 min early. I regret wasting my time trekking all the way out there from the Mission. The stylist was out and they'd unilaterally decided to squeeze me in w/another rather than call and let me decide whether to reschedule, and were rather rude about it. I only knew cos I called to confirm the address but they got good reviews so I went anyway tho I think that's v poor service. No apology or anything. And I certainly didn't expect to get the bum's rush because of their internal scheduling issues. Cute cut but not worth the hassle. Won't be back.

I had the best hair experience at Alexander G. this afternoon. Completely pampering and my hair looks and feels great. I've been going to Alex for 3 years now and my hair cuts and color keep getting more exciting every time. His interest in my hair is something I've never seen before. He keeps a meticulous record of everything we've done before with my hair, and so we are always trying new things--they all come out great. And his memory is unbelieveable--right down to the details like what I had told him about my last job promotion!

I recently saw a woman with amazing shine and color in her hair at a cafe. I had to ask her where she had her hair done. She said Alexander G. and went on to rave about his skills. I booked my appointment within a week and must say, I had an amazing color job done and everyone has noticed. Alexander G. is my only choice from now on. And I got a lviving enzyme treatment which has left my hair very soft and nice to the touch. I recommend this salon very much, and the staff is very accomodating and warm.

You set down the latte or refreshing beverage that Rob just gave you, and you go into a deep condition and head massage. By this time, you have already counseled with Alex or staff, who really listen to your needs. Alex also has an excellent method, which consists of looking at your core and expertly knowing what is going to work for you.\n I recommend this for all people who have very busy schedules but do not want a lot of attitude. \n I always come out of there feeling great about my hair and the experience. \n I never forget when Im taken care of. Alexander G. is Outstanding & sets the standard\n

Alexander Godson and Company have given me Quality Service, Convenient Parking, and Appointment scheduling, Consistently, every time I go to his bright, cheery, and comfortable environment. Most recently, I went to Alex the day before my wedding. It was great! It was one thing; I did not have to worry about, in those last few hours. I just sat back, had a latte delivered from the charming front man, Rob, and left with an outstanding cut. My wife, family, and friends all took notice because I looked and felt Great! Thank You Alexander G!

It's nice to find a hair salon where you don't have to worry about the outcome, and you know the work is consistently great, the staff is consistently welcoming, helpful and very nice. And where your hair is treated like it's the most important thing about you. My color job is amazing every time and the richness cannot be described in words, but is definitely noticed by those around me. And they think it's natural. Hats off to Alexander G. for sure.

Recently tried this salon and I must say that it is way over rated. Not sure how salons are rated on Citysearch, but this one is way out of line. My highlights are far too blonde\nwithout tone and texture or lowlights. Like white blonde without any depth. This is \nnot L.A. and someone needs to tell these guys. My hair is damaged as a result......\nnot recommended!!!!! Try some of the other salons... not this one.

Two months ago I went to a supposedly ""highly rated"" salon to have my hair done, but the hairdresser spoke about themself the whole way throught the appointment and if that wasn't bad enough, my hair ended up being brassy/orangey. I was in tears. Then I went to another ""top"" salon yet instead of correcting my color, they only made it just as bad. But they claimed it was good? Recently I went to Alex at Alexander G. and I won't let anyone but him touch my hair from now on. He miraculously corrected my hair and made it look much better than what my normal hair color was. It shines incredibly and is so soft and beautiful with lots of detail. Search no more!

Alexander Godson and company have brought a world class salon/barber to the richmond district. I love the experince of going, being pampered, and then walking out with that international cut that would be in vouge from the Village to the streets of Paris or an ally way in Millan. In always leave looking and feeling great!

After having my haircut and highlights/low lights done by Sarah I am ecstatic! I've received several compliments, including a few from people who thought my new hair color was my own natural color. It's not uncommon for me to shed a few tears after a hair cut/color, but my experience was quite the opposite here. Sarah is unintimidating, conscientious and truly talented. If you are as sensitive about your hair as I am, go here. You'll be in great hands!

After looking for MANY years I have finally come upon a salon that listens to me while at the same time offering their expert advice. The collaborative efforts of Alex and Noel were beyond my expectations and lended themselves to a perfect style and exactly what I wanted. Alex did my color and Noel did the cut. The whole experience was so very pleasurable and I cannot wait until my next appointment.

The collaborative efforts of Alex and Noel were beyond my expectations and lended themselves to a perfect style and exactly what I wanted. Alex did my color and Noel did the cut. The whole experience was so very pleasurable and I cannot wait until my next appointment.

Pros: Collaborative Effort, Friendly staff, Pleasurable

.

I travel many major cities--New York, L.A., S.F., Chicago, Copenhagen, Milano, Munich, London.....hands down this salon is one of the best. I make sure to book my appointment before coming to S.F. because I always know I'll get a great look and first-class service.

I love the teamwork that's involved when you're getting your hair done at this salon. From the first moment that you walk in on the red carpet, greeted by the very friendly receptionist Robert, getting your hair/head massaged oh so nicely, and being consulted by Alex followed by his amazing cut and color job, then blowdried or styled by a top stylist...you always feel catered to and treated like royalty. The work flow is fluid not to mention you walk out of there looking very hot hot hot.

I like to know I'm getting the best service possible when I go to a hair salon, spa or other bi-monthly necessary excursion. And I am convinced I get the best that I pay for when going to Alexander G. As far as I'm concerned, Alex is my stylist for life. I've been to every hair salon you can name, in order to know I had researched S.F. thoroughly. I was constantly dissatisfied and felt that either people didn't know what they were doing or that they just ignored my concerns. At Alexander G., I get his many years of experience opposed to someone's who's hip for 1 month. I highly recommend trying this salon.

What more could a girl want but get her hair done while relaxing, reading magazines, sipping fresh-brewed coffee or tea, and having her mane massaged, specially treated, cut, colored, styled and blow-dried by a very nice British man who knows everything there is to know about hair. And to be listened to! Alex is so knowledgeable with hair color and because he's a direct import from London, he knows what manners and great conduct in business are. I feel relaxed and reenergized after a couple hours at Alexander G. and my I couldn't look better!

.

I constantly get complimented on my hair color and hair styles. I'm a person who loves to try new things and Alexander's creative skills meet my expectations every time. His prices are very fair--his skills prove that in each visit. Many stylists charge way too much just because they work in a well-known hair salon downtown but you're then buying into the name, not the so-so skills they provide. I am 100 percent satisfied with Alexander G. If they asked me to do an infommercial, I would. Without hesitating.

Pros: serious about hair, highly creative, no attitude

I went to Alex for the first time last week and he is a real pro at hair color. He gave me what I have been trying to achieve with other hairdressers for years (but they never succeeded). His whole staff was so cordial and attentive. I will look no further. Alexander G. is my big beauty secret that is too good not to share. My best friend went this week and she too claims he's the best. Thank you so much!

I checked this site and chose one of the top rated salons. The reviews and ratings were right on! Just great! Sarah gave me exactly what I wanted and made the cut really work for my face and hair type. Both my roommate and I went there at the same time because we each chopped off over 14 inches of hair to donate to Locks of Love. So, this was the perfect place to do such a huge change in our hairstyles! Thank You!

Pros: Accomadating, Professional, Comfortable

Cons: , Hard to find

I am one of those people that always cried after coming home from the hair dresser... I was NEVER happy with the final product- until I met Alex. He was referred to me by an acquaintance (whose hair I'd greatly admired) when I moved to San Francisco 4 years ago and I have never had a bad salon experience since. Alex is SO personable and easy to talk to, making my time with him enjoyable and not stressful like my experiences had been in the past. His salon is impeccable and tastefully decorated, and the service (Rob- you are the greatest!) is phenomenal. Best of all, Alex is the most experienced colorist I've ever visited. I get compliments on my hair all of the time, and I owe it all to him!!!

I'm an executive and always traveling. But no matter where I'm residing at the moment, I always call Alex to make an appointment when in San Francisco. He's reliable, hair cuts are great, consistently on time and friendly, and gives me the update on English soccer. I certainly wouldn't have anyone else in any other city go near my hair.\nAlex is the man.

I recently moved to S.F. Looking for a new hairdresser, I went to Citysearch, read the reviews and decided to go see Alex at Alexander G. After a concise consultation, Alex recommended a combination of highlights and lowlights. I did not feel like I was in a salon that was trying to be something it's not. This place is genuine, modern, sophisticated and more. My hair looks fabulous and even my boyfriend repeatedly commented on how good it looked. And that says something. I'm pretty sure he'll go to him to now too.

Didn't get what I wanted, the highlight job was below average and very expensive, although the salon's atmosphere is pretty nice. I wouldn't recommend.

My sister saw Alex at Alexander G. a few weeks ago and advised me to try him. So I did and decided to also write a review. Not only were his skills excellent (the cut brought my hair back to life, it actually moves in ways it never did before and the color I had added makes it shine beyond belief, even my mother loves it--one's toughest critic!) but I have to say that the price I paid really matches the level of professionalism and the attention and concern I received. Too many times I've been to places that overcharged and literally passsed me from person to person. But Alex took great care of me and my hair and I was very happy reading my magazine and sipping my coffee while he did his magic. I didn't worry one bit. And that is huge in my book.

I've been searching for two years since I've moved here for a great salon. After reading the recommendations, I went for myself. Got a fabulous cut and highlights by Sara. Shes REALLY great, wonderful person, makes great conversation. I got excited just knowing that I had finally found her and the salon! I got complements the very next day, recommended her to coworkers already. Its a lovely cozy atmosphere, they provide drinks when you immediately arrive, everyone is very friendly. MUST GO!

If anyone is tired of spotted and streaked highlights, go to Alexander G's. Sarah, one of the stylists, is a true artist with color. The color that she wove into my hair makes it look better than when I was a teen. This was my first visit and I was so pleased that I made an appointment for the next before I left the salon.\n\nI highly recommend Alexander G's and Sarah to anyone.

I really like everything Alex does on hair, but what I REALLY love that he's been doing on me lately is lowlights. Most people typically talk about highlights but there's a whole world out there on LOWlights. And Alex has it down to a science. I don't look washed out at all now--my skin is fair--and I don't feel the need to wear much make-up. My hair speaks for itself and it makes everything else look better too. It has a personality all its own, really. I can tell people are staring at my lowlights but can't quite figure out how they were done so naturally.

Pros: fresh pressed coffee, parking

I just had an amazing experience at this salon. I had an appointment for highlights and hair cut. Alex, the owner, gave me the most thorough consultation I've ever had. He introduced the idea of adding lowlights with the highlights in order to cast shadow against my jaw line, so as to add more definition to my face shape. The outcome was fantastic. The effect of the lowlights gave my look much more depth and shine and my co-workers are all asking for his number.

I'm a nightmare when it comes to keeping up with my hair, and I have a hard time finding someone who will halp me figure out what style works best for me. Based on the reviews here and my conversation with someone at the salon (I wish I could remember his name-he's fabulous), I ended up in front of Alex having 10+ inches cut off my hair. He did a fabulous job, and I will definitely be returning. The whole experience was wonderful!

Since I moved to San Francisco from New York, ten years ago, I have been searching for a Salon that can give me A consistently good hair cut and quality experience. A good friend told me about Alex, that he had gone to him for years and he was opening a Salon. I went to this fine establishment and came to find that I had finally arrived. Since that time, I have seen the endeavor grow in two years 100%, and Alex has stayed loyal to his clientele new and old, because he knows that is what has gotten this enterprise the prominence that it has today.
