Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
1327 Chestnut St, Suite 6 @ Van Ness, San Francisco, CA 94123
Near Fort Mason in the Marina District
HOW CAN I GET THERE?
Please allow at least 10 minutes to find parking on weekdays and at least 20 minutes on Saturdays. Please allow time for traffic. There is 2-hour street parking within a block of the suite and it is free on Saturdays. For your first appointment you might opt for public transportation or a ride service. Public bike racks are installed in front as well.
WHAT DAYS DO YOU WORK?
I am in the salon Wednesdays - Saturdays. I take new clients Wednesday - Fridays. I do not work on Sundays.
My business/office hours are Monday - Saturday, 8AM-7PM.
HOW CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Please fill out this Questionnaire and email it to me. You will be contacted by email or phone to make an appointment.
DO YOU TAKE CHILDREN AND VARYING GENDERS?
I take children and support all LGBTQIA2S+ people. Prices are all the same.
DO YOU DO ALL CURL TYPES?
Yes, I do wavy, curly and naturals. I specialize in integration of or working with multi-textural hair within one head. Often people with curly hair struggle because one section is straight and another in tight ringlets.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES?
I believe in full transparency. For returning clients, a dry cut (without the cleanse and dry) is $150 (flat fee-gratuity included).
New Client prices are $340 (flat fee-gratuity included) and approximately 2.5 hours long.
WHY DO YOU INCLUDE THE TIP?
I found that tipping was always awkward for my clients. They never knew what was appropriate, sometimes they would ask me and it also took time at the end of the service. With the gratuity built in, it is an extremely clear way to conduct business and I am seen as the professional that I am. My clients say they love it.
WHY SHOULD I GO TO YOU?
I am precise, focused and detail-oriented. I do not start to cut your hair until we are in agreement on how much I will take off, what the length will be and what the style will look like on your hair texture and curl type. Your satisfaction and joy is what I thrive on. Because I have had several decades of experience as a stylist, I am finely tuned into your needs in this culture with curly hair.
You should also go to me if you prefer a calming one-on-one environment. The colors are subdued and the music is in the background.
HOW DO I WEAR MY HAIR WHEN I SEE YOU?
Please no tangles because I don't use a comb just fingers
Please finger detangle hair right before you enter suite door
Use your regular products but make sure the hair is untangled
Please come with hair dry, down and curly
Please have your hair washed within a day
Please do not use pony tails, half ups, clips or bobby pins
