My girlfriend recommended Notorious for Hair as I looked to change up my style and get ready for my graduation. I got an appointment with Rodney, and I can say with confidence that I received the best haircut of my life. Besides having just providing overall enjoyable experience, Rodney was able to achieve things with my hair that others technically had not. I can part my hair against a stubborn cowlic for the first time, and the cut is versatile enough to be style for professional and very casual settings. The prices are more than reasonable for the service, and there was no aggressive sales atmosphere. Overall, I can't imagine giving a higher recommendation. Thanks Rodney!

Pros: Atmosphere, Talent, Value

Cons: None

I was visiting CA from the east coast, and I made an opp. the last day I was there; ON A SUNDAY! and Rodney gladly cut and colored my hair! He is the nicest hair stylist I have EVER meet! He is clearly an HAIR EXPERT. I would HIGLY reccomend Rodney and Notorious hair! The reciptionist(s) were SO nice and the shop has a great feel to it. My hair went from brunnet and drab to upbeat and blonde! Rodney really focuses on what the client needs to enhance their look and takes his time with them. He helps you with hair care and what products are good/bad for your hair. I can not say enough good things about Notorious. I am going back to CA for school and I can tell you right now- Rodney is the man who will be styling my hair!! You should go here for your hair!!!!

RODNEY ROCKS!

I went to Rodney and I have had SOOO many compliments on my hair. I have been to just about all of the hairdressers at Notorious for several years now. I guess you can say I am a Salon junkie! I have a very busy work schedule which varies alot and so I usually call just a day or 2 before to get an appointment. This means I pretty much go to whoever can take me. I have NEVER been disapointed with any of the stylists. There was one rude woman sylist there, I went to her once but thank god, I heard that she left recently. She actually called me to invite me to her new salon. NOT! This time I got Rodney, the newest addition to their staff . We spoke and I just knew I was in good hands. I look so good that now "I am ready for my close-up!" I will forever be a loyal customer of Notorious!

I've always had difficult hair. Its wavy and when most people cut it, it sticks up. Drives me crazy! Joey Stevenson cuts it so that it lays flat and nice--just the way I like it. I dont know how she does it. But it works for me. also with age my hair is thinning, which is embarrassing. After Joey finishes with it, it appears to have more body, less noticeable. Thanks, Joey!

Pros: Its worth it

Cons: Long way to go

Hi! I am 56, a career woman, and like my hair to look professional. However, I have cowlicks and after a few days with most cuts my hair starts to stick out in unexpected ways. I am very glad to have found Joey who is able to cut my hair in such a way that it is manageable. No more bad hair days. I also find my haircuts from Joey tend to keep their shape and look stylish as the weeks go by. Thank you Joey for all the compliments I am getting.

I stumbled into Notorious Hair by accident, and I'm totally hooked on Joey Stevenson.

Finding a good hairdresser is such a pain in the Axx. Nothing makes me angrier than paying a fortune for a hair dresser to stare me in the eye, assure me that he knows what I want, and then give me something completely different. I am pretty clear about what I want, but it seems to be a rare hair-dresser who can deliver the right color and cut. Joey is a rare find! I wanted low-lighting that wouldn't wash out in a matter of weeks and layering to add volume, even as it grows. My hair grows insanely quickly, and so I asked for a cut that would grow well. She delivered in both respects! It's now been two weeks since my last hair cut with her, and my hair has never looked better.

My only warning is that she's BUSY! I've locked in my next two appointments with her already! I suggest you book ahead as well. Also, the parking situation isn't great, but there's always public transportation....

Joey Stevenson is fabo with those scissors- I have awkwardly frizzy hair, unbearably high expectations and a hard time articulating what I want. Yet, she listens to me (not one of these hairdressers that cuts of 4 inches when you say trim) and invariably gives me a cut which is so complimentary, manageable and grows out soooo well. She has also taken my hair from a self-colored wreck to something to show off. Amazing. Ask Lisa about hair extensions- from one or two to a whole head full, they are a must do for the final touch...

Fun to talk to and I completely trust her to make me look GOOOD. She's earned herself healer status in my world. Got my mojo working and everything.

My boyfriend and I have been going to Anee forever now. I have really fine hair, which is usually incredibly difficult to work with. Anee always does a great job and always helps me find the right cut for my hair's texture. She also does a great job with color! I've had her cut my hair in various styles from conservative to funky, and every cut so far has been great!

I recently went to Annie for a complete makeover of my color. Not only did she make awesome suggestions she really listened to what i had to say. She's extremely knowledgable (she used to be an educator and platform artist for bedhead!) and straight forward. She will deffinatly tell you how she feels! LOL! If you're wanting a really amazing color go see Annie. She's the best!

i tried notorious, a few months ago, after looking for a salon on citysearch. noel listened to my thoughts and looked at the ghetto/crumpled pictures i brought. he spent time discussing my haircut before he got to work. he was quick and skilled! he promised me that i would get compliments on my cut and he was right. the original cut was cute and it's grown out cute too (with a few trims from friends to humor my constant need to cut and change my hair) i'm planning on making an appt. soon to see noel again. thanks.
ps. the salon is homey and laid-back. drinks were offered and their bathroom boasts a heated toilet seat, which just adds to the unconventional and quirky vibe at notorious.

I moved to San Francisco about a year and a half ago. Until that time, my stylist of many years was an awesome girl who had been one of my best friends long before she ever became a cosmetologist. Even with all of the stress of moving across the country for a new job, nothing was as frightening as the thought of having to turn my hair over to a complete stranger. I found Notorious on Citysearch, called, and was randomly paired with Lisa who had an opening. While I was very nervous, she magically knew exactly how to make me comfortable with the experience. I love going to Lisa! Not only is she great at what she does, she?s also a blast to catch up with!

After moving to Cali from NY, I went through the typical angst anyone has with a big move searching for the new doctor, dentist, and hair professional. I succeeded quickly in finding everyone I needed except for someone great for hair. Finally, after 6 months, I found Noel thanks to reviews on this site. NOEL IS, indeed, PHENOMENAL. He is highly skilled and he genuinely listens-- because he genuinely cares about your experience and wants you to leave feeling good about how you look. He took a huge amount of time to pay attention to detail and to make sure I was completely happy. A terrific cut, a terrific guy. Couldn't be more grateful to have found him. Worth the trip up from Monterey.

Heather's been my stylist for over one year now and she's amazing. I've never had a bad experience here and always walk out with a new haircut that makes me feel like I'm looking my best. She's also amazing with hair color. She was able to work with my hair (which goes brassy when bleached) and get it to a killer dirty blonde. Not that it's a surprise she's great with color...she has some wicked awesome bright pink hair!

I keep coming Back. First and Foremost Thank you to my girl who put me on to Notorious. I have never endangered a bond with a salon before but now I can't help but return especially since I have never been disappointed. I geenerally go to Anne b/c I dig her style and feel that she is up to date on techniques and styles.
I'm one of those people that never knows what I want and am afraid of changing my looks etc etc but I feel that as I continue to get my hair done at notorious I will become more open to change. I like that everyone there comes well recommended.

Notorious for Hair is wonderful! I moved to the city a year ago and went to 3 other salons before a friend finally referred me to Nole at Notorious for Hair. Nole is great....he is so sweet, funny, and easy to talk to, he listens to what I want and he makes it happen. The prices are beyond affordable and they have great products at good prices. Nole did gorgeous blonde highlights for me the first time and this time he changed me to a Brunette---and I am SO happy with my hair!!!! I didn't even know it was possible for my hair to turn out so well. He's also a good one to go to because he really understands the idea of customer service---he doesn't mind staying late and, when I ask, he educates me about what he is doing to my hair and why. He also has reccommended fabulous products and given me a routine for styling my hair that has improved the texture and appearance of my hair beyond belief. I truly appreciate what he has done for me and I will never see any other hairstylist after my experience at Notorious for Hair.

The location of Notorious For Hair drew me in, but the service and quality will keep me here! I am in my early 30s and I have been searching high and low for a non-pretentious, young, vibrant and chic hair salon... and Notorious fits the bill. After a detailed consultation with Joey, my highlights turned out exactly the way I wanted them to! Notorious has the perfect formula for success. And at great prices!

I've had three cuts and one color now and I'm always happy when I leave. I've always gone to Lisa and she does amazing work. I started out long but have progressively been getting shorter and she was very good at listening and interpreting what I wanted while matching that to something that looked good for my face. She's very creative but doesn't pressure you into anything you don't want. As for my color, I'm still in love and it's lasted so looong! I had bright candy apple red highlights put in but my main concern was spending money on something that would fade quickly. I don't know what Lisa did but my color's as brilliant as the day she dyed it 6 weeks ago and I still get tons of compliments. Lisa knows what she's doing!

I have been going to Joey for over 2 years and have never had anything but complements on my cut and color. Her cuts look fantastic and hold their style right up to my next appointment.I always leave feeling like a new person. I learned more about how to deal with my hair in one service than I had in years of going to other stylists. She's the best kept secret in San Francisco.

Whether you are looking for color/style that makes a bold statement, or something more mainstream - but not BORING - Joey Stevenson is the artiste for you. As a Bohemian (wanna be) by night, but a professional who works in a fairly conservative environment by day, I have finally found the colorist who offers the right mix of convention and unconventional. Joey can take you which ever way you want to go - from Goth Anarchist to Jennifer Anniston - or a wide range of something-in-between. She is a master with the scissors as well, as witnessed by myself and a collague who has opted for a totally different look. A great listener, an accomplished colorist and stylist, and a fun person - not to mention, accessible AND affordable - Joey will definitely give you something you love. I'm almost afraid to give the secret away....

Recently moved to SF and have been searching for a great salon. Went to Notorious based on the ratings and got even more than expected. Jessica took great care of my curly (rather difficult) hair. She listened to everything that I had to say and made great suggestions of things I never would have thought of. I trusted her judgment and have never been so satisfied. Will definitely be heading back. Also, the prices are way low for the quality you receive!

So I moved to SF from LA on New Years Day 2006. I have been in search of a GREAT hair cut since I arrived. It took me 9 months to find it .... but NOEL SHABAZIAN at Notorious is AMAZING. Noel is a true professional stylist. Ensuring that he understood exactly what I was looking for. If you are looking for a GREAT haircut, then I highly recommend Noel at Notorious.

I brought my curly hair in for a cut by Annee after reading some of the positive reviews here. First the good part: she gave me a wonderful cut (one of the best I've had), and a couple months later, it still looks great. But here comes the not-so-good part: Annee was extremely critical of the state that my hair was in, and worse, she made me feel bad about it. She ripped into my hair-care regimen and did not make an effort to understand my busy schedule that prevents me from spending a lot of time on my hair. After she completely ragged on all my current hair-care products, she of course pushed me towards the salon products there. All in all, the haircut was so good that I may consider a return trip, but I'm a little hesitant due to the brusque treatment that I received there.

I have been going to Noel for some time now, and I highly recommend him! He's someone you can trust as he gives excellent haircuts 100% of the time. He pays very close attention to every detail and shows great interest in creating exactly what you want, and what is going to look good. For those of you with very short hair - he is particularly fabulous at giving you the most incredible fade!
Oh, and did I mention he is a total sweetheart? Yah. See Noel!

I've been getting my hair done by Lisa at Notorious hair salon in SF for a few months now and couldn't be happier. She listens, and interprets what you want and has great hair solutions! I just had my hair straightened and cut and it has never looked better! From what I have seen, she can do everything from ultra edgy to classic. If you want a good hairdresser, give her a try!
Thanks Lisa!

I got my hair done here a few times by a guy who left then I came to see someone else (can't remember her name) it was the worst hair cut and she bleached my hair so light it looked terrible. The cut was so bad that now a year later it has grown out. I also did my eyebrows here and they made them look way dark
If you want a clean conservative cut or style for work go somewhere else this place will have you looking like a freak in the Castro

I got my hair done here a few times by a guy who left then I came to see someone else (can't remember her name) it was the worst hair cut and she bleached my hair so light it looked terrible. The cut was so bad that now a year later it has grown out. I also did my eyebrows here and they made them look way dark
If you want a clean conservative cut or style for work go somewhere else this place will have you looking like a freak in the Castro

Extra Special and Very Professional -- these are terms that describe Lisa.

I came to Lisa by referral when I noticed a colleague's elegant haircut.

When I arrived in her salon chair, I had bad hair color and was confused about cut. Luckily, Lisa makes time to communicate with her clients. She was a patient listener and didnt make fun of me for wanting at once to grow my hair out and at the same time to cut it into a sassy bob. With able scissors and good ideas, Lisa fashioned a cut that had both dramatic angles, body, and fullness. I was greatly indebted to her. it is very hard to get a haircut that makes you happy while your hair is growing out, but Lisa is a master or perhaps I should say, a mistress.

Lisa, who has gorgeous jewel tones in her own hair understood that I wanted something warm, golden, and very subtle. In a magical combination of honey tones and rich brown lowlights, she gave me lasting beautiful color that has drawn attention and compliments from strangers and friends alike.

I believe that the difference between a good hairstylist and a mediocre one is not always immediately apparent. Virtually all hairstylists make you look good upon exiting the salon; but as the days, weeks, and sometimes months go by you see. A good haircut continues to shine, taking on new definition as it grows. Lisa gives her clients lasting cuts.

Lisa is also a versatile artist. At one of my visits to the salon, I admired the hairstyle of one of the other stylists her brilliant fuchsia colored locks were braided and she wore what looked like a giant hibiscus flower in her hair. I learned that Lisa had created that work of art. I have witnessed both her talent in creating experimental, festive, and glamorous hairstyles as well as more subtle professional cuts that maximize a clients best features.

So whatever your preferences and proclivities, I commend you to Lisa in whose hands you will do well.

Anne was everything I expected and more. I told her what I was looking for, showed her a pic, and she worked out my ideas to what would suit me best. If you're looking for a great cut at a good price, this is the place. If I lived in the area, I would definitely be back again... too bad Texas is too hot. A great choice! :-)

Finally! A very modern and professional salon with great cuts, colors and edgy options for a price that doesn't break the bank. The stylists really know hair, products and the vibe in the salon is energized. Don't me started on the best bathroom in the city - must experience it for yourself! Highly recommended - now I'm sure it will be expontentially more difficult once people realize what a gem this salon is.

Annie is top notch. She has the ideal combination of knowing how to interpret what you're saying you want, seeing what works best for you, and knowing what's current and hip. Yup.

I saw Anee after hearing wonderful things about this salon on Livejournal. I went in planning on just a cut, but left with the best cut and color I have ever had. I was so impressed at the atmosphere of this salon, as well as the time my stylist took to talk with me about my hair and preferences. I tell all of my friends and family to check out Notorious for Hair and plan to go back as long as I live ni the Bay Area.

Big day for me last month - decided for the first time in my life to have cut all off. So I was researching and found Notorious for hair. Got hooked up with Anee. And oh my Goodness, do I look fantastic with that new cool short hair and cleverly coloured hair of mine. If you are up for a drastic change, don't risk it. Go and see Anee!

Everyone always asks me where I got my fancy haircut. Joey of course! She's been doing my hair for a few years now and I'm always happy. She made me look great on my wedding day!

I have been on a life long search for a really good stylist and i finally found one in Anee. I went to Notorious For Hair based on the reveiws on this website and boy am I happy that I did. Anee both colored and cut my hair and let me tell you that it looks amazing! I brought in pictures of the style that I wanted and she told me what about the style would and would not go with my face shape and skin coloring. She offered helpful suggestions and was very knowledgable. I'm for sure going back and if you knew what was good for you you would go to her too.

I have been going to Lisa for a year, maybe more, now. She is such an awesome stylist, I literally have NEVER had a bad haircut from her. I have reccommended every one of my friends to her, boy with curls to chicks with long celebrity-Lohan hair, and everyone loves the finished product. She listens really well to what you want, has innovative ideas, AND she's funny as hell! I work in a salon and I still will only let lisa cut my bob! Does it get better than Lisa? I'd say NO!

My stylist was young, would ask me questions and then not listen to my answers, and spent most of the haircut telling me how good she was at doing hair. My haircut wasn't that good to begin with and although it's only been about 3 weeks, I've had to make another appointment (elsewhere) to add some style to what has grown out to be a big old mop. The best part was when I heard a stylist tell a client that if they wrote nice things about them on Citysearch, they'd get $$ off their next haircut! So beware! I'm not saying that the positive reviews are fake, those people obviously liked their cuts enough to want to go back, but they had "incentive" to write the reveiw- it isn't that they felt compelled to proclaim it to the world on their own.

I've been seeing Lisa for about a year and every time I go in it's a pleasure. Lisa always has great ideas and enjoys difficult tasks like deciding what to do with my hair or making me blonde from black. She's currently helping me grow out my hair but keep a fun and fresh cut through the process. I've done a lot of different things with color that have always been great, thanks to Lisa. Once or twice there have been a few pieces that needed to be fixed, and I've gone back in and she's fixed them with no trouble or cost. I practically feel like part of the family when I walk into Notorious and have recommended the salon to at least ten friends who have fallen equally in love with the place and with Lisa's haircuts.

I decided to try Notorious when I read about them on City Search. I was not quite sure what to expect, but thought that the recommendations were good enough to give them a shot. I ended up getting Anee as my stylist and was extremely pleased. Anee was very professional and knew what she was talking about when discussing hair care products and hair in general. She really listened to what I wanted out of the haircut, but also made suggestions about what she thought would make my ideas better. I ended up with a great haircut that I was proud to sport. Plus, I went to visit some friends the following weekend and every person I saw complimented me on my haircut. When you go to Notorious, ask for Anee and you wont be sorry!

I have definately struggled to find a great haircut for a good price in San Francisco. My roommate told me about Notorious for Hair and recommended Joey - she said that Joey had given her the best bangs she'd ever had! Joey was great. She cut my hair exactly how I liked it and added a few twists of her own as well! I definately recommend checking it out!

I moved to SF from NY in Jan 06 and needed to find a new place to get my hair cut after having the same person cut it for 6 years. I was a bit nervous... well it turns out that Joey has given me two haircuts better than I've had in 6 years.. and I'm going back today for my third. Very cool place, cool atmosphere, and they know what they're doing. Joey actually listens to what you want to have done, and also has great suggestions of her own if you're not sure what kind of cut you want. Definately give this place a shot!

Anee gave me a beautiful hairstyle for my wedding day. She created a gorgeously stunning updo for my Maid of Honor too. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted to do for the occasion and she was able to listen to me and make my ideas into a beautiful hairstyle fit for a princess. Plus Anee is such a sweet person, I always enjoy going to see her.

If you have curly or straight hair, Heather will be sure to do a fantastic job! I have extremely weak curly hair that had not been cut or colored for a very long time. I had a picture of a haircut I desired which required me to cut my curly hair from the middle of my back to above my chin (this was so nerve wracking, but it had to be done). 1 hour later, 3 shades darker, and 6-10 inches shorter, my hair looked INCREDIBLE. Heather has truly won me over with her charm, capabilities and confidence. Thank you HEATHER! I've never been so excited about a cut/color and had a great experience in Notorious. The music was great, the stylists were comforting, accommodating, and entertaining. My friend also saw NOEL, and I just want to mention how beautiful she looks. We both had a wonderful and humble experience.

I went in for a cut today without really knowing exactly what I wanted and Lisa was very patient in helping me figure out what cut would be best. In the end, I just told her to do what she thinks would look best so she tried this new cut that she recently learned and I LOVED IT. I'm even coming back to get my hair colored by her. I am usually very conservative with my hair but Lisa has given me the confidence to experiment more with it. LISA ROCKS!

I found NOTORIOUS on the citysearch website and decided to try it out. Because I am a 39 year old gay man, I was a little nervous when I walked in and saw the mohawks and pink hair in the lobby. But, when I met LISA, I immediately felt comfortable. She did not make me feel like a fool for bringing a picture! She was funny and brilliant with great suggestions. I received a perm and a cut and it looked awesome. My friends and I both loved it. This salon definitely has a cool, warm vibe. I will definitely go back. Thanx LISA!
