April is my Wak Shack anniversary month, so to celebrate I thought I'd offer a review. For 4 years now I've had nothing but exceptional cuts and fantastic color here--the kind where women literally stop me on the street to find out where I get my hair done. Simon was my guy for years, but after he moved southward (LA ladies: find him now before he gets famous) I've taken up with Filomena. She is lovely to work with and such a skilled stylist. She listens to my ideas but applies her expertise so that the result suits my face shape and hair type. I've had to put color on hold for a while, but even on my lean budget cutting out Filomena is just not an option. (Pun intended!) My only note is that I do spend longer in the salon than I used to--close to an hour and a half all said and done. But it's a fair trade in my book for the awesome cut I know I'll walk out with.

Pros: Skilled and consistent service, fair price, good music

Cons: You may need to take an extra long lunch break

I would have given the wak shack five stars had it been on my past experience, however this week I went and was very disappointed. I had been in and seen Simon before he left the salon and was very satisfied and excited with how he did my hair. He recommended I go to Filomena or Kat after he left. I saw Filomena and I found her hair cutting very similar to Simon's, very specific to my hair, face shape and very meticulous. I left feeling very good about my haircut and myself. I went and saw Kat this week, and was unimpressed. Although she was very nice and easy to talk to, her technique was far below that of the other stylists I had seen. My hair is now too short and not in a style I particularly like. I can't wait for my hair to grow out, which is not the way I wished to feel leaving the salon. I wanted to leave wishing my hair wouldn't grow too fast so that it would look that good for a while, like I had on my previous visits.

I have never gotten anything but awesome haircuts here! I have been going here for a few years and have used Erin, Simon and Kendra and they have all done excellent jobs. I have given the most general of descriptions and they have always given me exactly what I wanted and then some. Sadly Simon, who was my most current hairdresser, is no longer there but I had the opportunity or working with Kendra and she rocks! I think that was the best hair cut I have ever got! Look no further this is the best place in San Francisco!

How can you not try a place that's called the Wak Shak? Super place, easy to find, great stylists providing a wonderful atmosphere. I've had the pleasure of trying several of the stylists for various function's I've attended - have never been disappointed.

I love this place. I travel from the East Bay to go here, which anyone who drives the Bay Bridge at 5pm knows how hard this can be, but it is definitely worth it. I have been going here for over 6 years now, and i have never had a bad experience here. Every stylist does quality work, is SUPER friendly, and knows what they are doing. They do amazing color, fabulous extensions, and the best Updo's around. Many of my friends have gone here to get their wedding hair done, as well as their entire bridal party. I even got my boyfriend hooked on this place. Very relaxing atmosphere, as well as kick butt music, and you'll get the best haircut of your life. Come check out this place. Its the bees knees!

I explained to the man what I wanted very thoroughly and he reassured me that he would give me a cool, hip cut. I left with a hair cut that looked exactly the same as when I came but shorter. Very disappointed.

I had always seen this salon when I was walking by and thought it looked cute from the outside. When I finally went in for the first time I was amazed at how big the place actually was, with three rooms including a full service esthetician room and also patio in back.
The hair cut I had by Simon was one of the best I've ever gotten. I'm trying to grow my hair out but it was definatly time for a trim and he was great about giving me a new shape and hip style that will grow out nicely (without looking shaggy!) Filomena did my color fabulously, I have three colors in my hair and she did a great job making everything look bright and vivid and kept the colors from bleeding together. She was very funny and friendly as well. I also have seen Kendra for a blowout style for a special occasion and she did such a good job. She realloy listened to me and gave me exactilly what I wanted.
For the esthetician work I have seen both Heather and Grace for various waxing procedures and I have to say they are both fantastic. Very gentle and professional which is great..especailly if it's your first time!
As a whole my experiences at the WAK Shack are always fun and I leave looking ready for the runway! THANKS WAK SHACK!!!!

Pros: Great music, friendly staff, they'll even bring you food from the coffe shop accross the street

Cons: sometimes hard to make appointment...they're busy! Call ahead....

I did not go to the Wak Shack for the the cultural decor. Its a funky little hair salon on Haight Street. However, everyone is really down to earth and friendly. The receptionist, Cat, is really friendly and will always find time to squeeze you in. I cut my hair with Filomena a few times. I have to say that she is terrific. The only reason that I don't go to her often is because of the price. Her cuts run $85 which is a little too much for me. But when I have the money to splurge, she is the one for me.

I do tell her that I can't always afford the expensive cut, and she tells me to that whenever I can, her door is always open and she will make room for me.

If you have the cash, they will give you great service. I also heard that the eyebrow wax is great here, but I never tried it yet. They also offer soothing facials.

I'm one of those women who never liked going to the hair salon. The 3 or 4 times I had paid top dollar for a haircut I walked out looking a wreck -- hair cut much shorter than I asked, poofy layers I didn't want, and lots of other lame results. I always thought I "just had bad hair" and I'd never experience that glorious feeling some women seem to have when they leave the salon. So I avoided hairdressers at all costs.

But Filomena at the Wak Shack changed me! A friend gave her the highest recommendation, and now I give you, dear reader, mine! She clearly knows hair! All types, but she seems to be especially good with thick, wavy hair. She also understands how certain haircuts compliment certain face shapes and personal styles. She gave me the exact cut I had always dreamed of having. I couldn't believe how incredible my hair looked and how easy it has been since then to care for it. It looks great whether or not I blowdry and style it. This is a first for me and I only have her (and Wak Shack) to thank. I'm definitely going back to her every 6 weeks.

Prices are very reasonable... which will allow you to give Filomena a big tip!

i had read good reviews about this place, so i had to try it. i walked in and they had an appointment for me in less than an hour. the receptionist was really nice and enthusiastic about her job. i came in with a slight idea of what i wanted. kendra cut my hair and it came out exactly like what i wanted without really knowing what that was! i loved it. the place itself has a hawaiin theme, and most of the people who work there are pretty funky. the only annoying part is that they have to promote the products they use, and actually give you a checklist of what to buy when you leave, which isnt really a big deal. id recommend this place for sure.

Lisa is fabulous! She cuts my hair so well, and I trust her to do a fabulous job. I have very thin short hair but there is a lot of it and she styles it into an easy to manage yet fab hairdo.

Pros: fab atmosphere, wonderful stylist, cool neighborhood

This place is AWESOME!!!! I had KENDRA for my first time, and she ROCKED! EXTREMELY knowledgable, and you can tell that she really loves her job!!! She will share with you as much information as she can about your hair - the way it moves, parts, feels - and what works best and what might not be so hot... even what type of products would be best/not great for it. I first requested Bettie-Page-type bangs in addition to a cleaner, lighter cut, and she let me know what could be good about it, and what might not be good about it, and also gave me 2 more options that she thought would look good. I took option C which included a straight bangs look (slightly similar to Bettie Page), but with a different type of cut. And MAN!!! SHE WAS RIGHT ON!!! My cut LOOKED FANTASTIC!! I haven't been this happy with a haircut in YEARS!!!! Kendra also is very VERY real and honest, and so it was very easy to trust her, and obviously, I will continue to do so! Believe me, this girl KNOWS what she's doing! You can't go wrong with her... She rocks! Thanks, Kendra!

Thanks for the awesome haircut! Thanks, too, for showing me how to use the cool wax and for helping me out with the "manscaping". I was definitely getting a little shaggy and your haircut has garnered several compliments for me. You rock!

I love my haircut! He is the best! I travel 3 1/2 hours to get a cut by him and it is worth the drive! Being female and having a faux hawk that looks cute and girly is what he has given to me and I get stopped by strangers all the time who comment on how cute my hair is! That is the ultimate compliment to Simon! I totally recommend him for anyone who wants to love their hair!

OK, actually I don't want to tell you about how great Kim is, necause then she'll be even harder to get an appt with. She knows her stuff and her no-nonsense approach is appreciated by those of us who don't feel the need to hear our hair stylist go on and on about how drunk they were last Saturday night. She's a pro and gives great hair. What else can I say...love her, love her, love her.

I was in town on business and needed to have my hair reshaped from a previous stylist. Simon immediately saw the problem and was able to correct it for me! I am so happy now & wish I were able to fly Simon to me for regular styling.

I have been a client of this salon for a while now, but they just started to do Fusion extensions...and let me tell you Erin did an OUTSTANDING job on putting them in...and then giving me a fab cut. I am looking forward to her creating a new look every time i go. They were much less expensive than a lot of salons in the city...and I did my research. She has the artistic touch and eye for sure. If your looking to get extensions...than she is your gal..and if your not and you just need a sweet hair cut she can hook you up!

Noeleen has been cutting my hair for the past ten years, and I have never, ever been disappointed. Noeleen knows my hair better than I do; and before I come in for each appointment, she does her "homework" and provides me with ideas and pictures of the newest cuts that would work with my hair. It's as though she reads my mind. That's what I call true, personal service! I always get compliments on my haircuts from friends, family and strangers; and I recommend each and everyone of them to Noeleen. Those who have had the chance to see her have come back equally happy and satisfied. I love the Tiki-meets-the-Haight atmosphere at the salon. The staff is professional and fun and is willing to meet your hair needs, whether conservative, ultra-edgy or somewhere in the middle. Even my teen-aged daughters have given their approval--and that says a lot!

My most recent visit to Erin has left my hair sooooooooooooo happy and beautiful and healthy that I can't stop talking about it. She always knows exactly what I want, and then magically, makes my hair do it! She's better than any other stylist I've been to. I reccomend her to all my friends and, occasionally, strangers. The WAK Shack itself is cute, spacious, and laid-back with a hip staff. A+!

DONT do it. The stylist seemed upset. I would have wanted him to cancel than to have him cut off all & texturize all of my hair until it was all thinned out & the majority of it gone! So much that I have to put lots of styling products into my hair to keep it from standing up. He mutilated my hair. What's left my hair is now between ~3/4 of an inch to 2 inches in length. It looks nothing like I wanted or asked for (I even brought photos as an example of what I wanted). There's not much left of my thick & wavy hair. For the remainder of my natural life - I will NEVER go back there. The quality of this stylists haircuts depends on his termperament it seems. My hideous & horribly shaped haircut has me feeling humiliated - he masacred my image.

I found out about the salon on here, and I called in and got an appointment with Erin...I went in and the people were very friendly and the salon atmosphere was really relaxed and welcoming. I brought some pictures in, and Erin gave me exactly what I wanted, that has never happened before...I have never been so happy with my hair! I love it...and will never go to someone else!

I had not ever been to The Wak Shack, but I just got my hair done by Erin and it was really FUN and really great when it was done. Everyone there was really nice also. One guy totally told me how cute my hair and my hairclip looked. I left feeling really good about myself. :-)

The W.A.K. Shack raawks! I went to see Arthur and he was very attentive, making sure that I got exactly the cut that I wanted.

Girls he will hook you up with the funky style and he's cute too!

My friend took me last night to get our "hairs" cut and highlighted. It was the best birthday present ever.
We were ushered in the door, wrapped in smocks and highlighted immediately. Not a second of waiting. Simon, a wak shack newbie was AWESOME. He took his time, listened to our hair gripes and gave us both superfab styles and awesome color. We're both definitely coming back!!!! Walter was also really sweet and we had fun chatting the night away.
Parking is on the street, but it wasn't a problem. The cost was reasonalble and much much much less than poshy, trendy salons that make you wait forever and then send you out the door without much more than a trim.
This is the best cut and color I've ever had! Friends and strangers have said how great it looks all day today!

I call Walter my 'Hair God'. I have been coming to him for 7 years. He is such a pro, so experienced, you can give him a picture and he'll cut the exact haircut or you can come in not knowing what the hell you want and he knows just what will look good..and it always does. He did my hair and make-up for my wedding and it looked fantastic. I got many compliments.

He did my hair and make-up for my wedding and it looked fantastic. I got many compliments.

Pros: experienced, skilled, hip, not pretentious

.

I highly recommend Arthur at W.A.K. Shack for your next new 'do. For all the scenesters and hipsters, he is the best kept secret in San Francisco. All the perks that rival Blade Runner's and upper haight fashion; Arthur can work with you and create the exact hairstyle to you want. He's intuned to today's hottest trends but way less pretentious than your norm shi shi stylist and inexpensive.

Pros: Afforadable, Intimate, Non-ego atmosphere

I hadn't colored my hair in over 10 years because I was so over the expense and high maintenance of it, but Walter convinced me otherwise and I couldn't be happier. Not only did he re-introduce me to the joys of two-tone hair with lovely and non-damaging demi-permanent color (it has less ammonia), but he totally customized the color to make it unique and to make it fit my lifestyle (i.e. the way he did it, you can't tell I have roots until many months later).

I've since recommended Walter to several friends, and the feedback is always the same, that they got the best color and/or cut of their life, and that they're never going elsewhere again. And while they go back for the high-end hair and ultra-professional service, they keep going back for the fair prices.

Walter gave me the best haircut I have ever had! 21 days since and I still haven't had a bad hair day yet. I have babes winking at me in the elevators...don't tell my girlfriend!

Thanks ;)

I do not recommend the hairstylist at the W.A.K Shack. First haircut was great - exactly what I wanted. Second haircut the stylist mutilated my hair after having relationship troubles...he talked and complained and cut and cut and...my hair was gone! My nickname was J.I. Jane. I talked to him about the haircut and decided to give him one more chance. Third time was a twenty-minute haircut, silence and a mediocre job. I am not coming back. The hairstylist cannot take criticism and the quality of his haircuts depends on his termperament and emotional stability.

I highly recommend Arthur -- a great stylist at the WAK Shack. My husband and I went to him for the first time recently (drove there from Mountain View), and we were both extremely happy with the entire experience. The salon has a cool, laid back atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable, and Arthur made us feel comfortable and "at home". I explained to Arthur the look I was wanting, and he talked me through the cut, explaining how he was creating the shape I wanted. I'm having a lot of fun with my new style, as is my husband. Call Arthur!
