We heard about G-Squared reputation as the best colorist in the Bay so we sent some of our models there for specialty cuts and color. Their reputation is well-deserved! The staff was warm and friendly and very professional, without being irritating. The salon itself is inviting and comfortable. They are a bit pricey but, you get what you pay for. (Which us probably why they seem to spend a chunk of their time fixing someone else's botched job.)

This is a great salon, and Neil is the best, as well. I would never consider anyone else to color my hair. Always shiney and looks so natural. This salon is one of the few left, with professionals, who really care......It is always a treat to visit G-Squared, where you are treated like family.... Try it out, you will be glad you did!

Pros: best color and cut

Cons: none

This is a Fabulous salon, the owner Neil is the BEST of the BEST!! I am very very critical, particular and have tried many many salons until finding Neil about 5 years ago, he is the BEST by far and worth the drive. I will never switch and hope he never retires.

Pros: GREAT SERVICE, GREAT COLOR, GREAT CUTS, JUST GREAT!!

Cons: None except it is an hour drive each way for me but worth it

I had been hopping around from place to place, trying different stylists, cuts, etc. Not happy at all. I tried this place because I pass by it on my way to work. I was SO HAPPY I did, Debra takes care of my hair. I have never been really happy when I left a salon before. Now I leave feeling great. I get tons of compliments on the color, the cut, the style. Debra is the sweetest person ever, she will do your hair right. If you tell her what you want, she will listen, she may suggest something and I say, please take her advice. She knows what she is doing. I would encourage anyone NOT happy with their current "do" to check out G Squared.

Not only do you get an amazing haircut and color, but the salon is well run and the people who work there are nice and down to earth. I am looking good and also relaxed when I leave there.

Debra is amazing. My hair color and cut have never looked better. I get so many compliments on both. The salon is great, she is terrific and I love going there. PS I have fine hair and she makes it look thicker and shinier.

Pros: Best Color/Cut in SF

Cons: Parking

I just relocated to SF from the East Coast and move into the SOMA district of SF and like everyone else I needed new peeps!!! Luckily G2 was close to my new place and even more luckily I was booked with Adrienne. She was such a hoot!!!! LOVED her and my new color and cut.
The salon in on the smaller side but very professional and a bit trendy. Adrienne took her time with me and I must say the results were awesome!!!

Just booked my first color ever with G-SQUARED -- Loved it -- Very natural blonde highlights -- and considering this was my first time, I'm surprising even myself with how happy I am with them. I will be back -- I guess that's the catch though -- you like them so much that you sign up for the service for life. (smile) Adrienne was my wonderful stylist -- very pleasant and very talented.

Just wanted to give a shout out for my colorist -- Adrienne. I had gone to her at Bella Union -- loved her there -- and am now following her to G-SQUARED. She's the best! She's made me blonde, taken me back to my natural brown with carmel highlights -- and even (way back when) taken me to a rich dark brown. Each time she made me look completely natural (I'm not into the stripey look) -- and made me comfortable throughout the change. Two thumbs way up!

I was recently contacted by Adrienne to inform me that she has joined the staff at G-Squared. My girlfriends and I are excited as the last salon would not tell us where she is. Now I can have my fab hair back. It has been hard for me to trust people with my hair and especially my color but Adrienne is a true artist so she has certainly earned my trust.. Can't wait to see the new place... I have heard great things.

While I was visiting L.A. I decided to try one of those upscale hip salons in West Hollywood after reading about them in Style magazine. Upon the stylist recommendation I went for trendy,edgy,recent, textured Bob, or so I was told. Fast forward, I couldn't do a thing with it so that is when I called G-Squared and was booked with Jocelyne. She worked magic on my too textured cut and now I can at least get a brush through it and blow-dry it without breaking into tears. Thanks so much Jocelyne!!!!

Pros: excellent cuts

.

It's hard to choose a salon and stylist when there are so many to choose from. I selected G-Squared and ended up with Jocelyne. First of all. she is sooooo sweet and attentive. Then, she is also great with hair. We talked a bit and decided to go with a bit more daring color than usual. Presto... Ilove my color!!!!!! The salon is super cute and chic with many talented stylist in my opinion.

I've been highlighting my black hair with L'oreal highlighting kits since I was a teen. But after a diastrous series of haircuts (I left my regular stylist and was flitting around) I didn't want to take any chances with hair color. I just wanted everything to go well. I remember reading about Neil and his color wizardry in Allure, and I thought I'd give him a chance. What can I say about Neil? Charming, low-key, respectful. He looked at all the pictures I brought, told me what he thought would look right given what I wanted (trust me ? it was a tall and complicated order), and presto, change-o, I looked amazing afterward. (He even talked me into dying my brows ? a first ? and it was kind of a revelation.) I am going to go back for a haircut soon. If he's anything with scissors as like is with color, I'm going to be a happy camper when I leave. He was on-time, too, which you would think should go without saying but has not been the case for me the past few times I've had my hair cut. This place is professional and Neil (and I'm sure the rest of them) are skilled. Trust me. I've been to them all.

Pros: Masters at color, on-time, friendly, down-to-earth, offer you a drink immediately

Cons: Near the Tenderloin

Just moved out here from Florida about 6 months ago, and have been trying to find a steady hair stylist that can do natural highlights. I found G-Squared and Debra through a friend that has been seeing her for a while and I've always loved her hair, so I thought I would give Debra a try. I am so glad I did! Debra gave me the most natural highlights I have had since my last hair stylist in Florida. I couldn't be happier with the results and I really enjoyed my experience here. Give this salon a try!

I was just referred to Neil by my esthetician. He's been doing her hair for years -- and it always looked fabulous. She confessed in a quiet moment that she's actually a natural brown -- I would never have guessed -- she looks the perfect L.A. blonde. In any event, I digress -- I booked with Neil (not easy getting an evening or a weekend appointment) and was pleasantly surprised as his low-key (no drama) demeanor. He looked at the pictures I brought -- gave me recommendations to tweak the cut to better match my face shape -- and went to work. I was nervous at first -- had been going to the same stylist in Palo Alto for years -- but his confidence and re-assuring manner put me at ease. My color turned out beautiful -- I had seen results like this in the movies -- but just thought it was all airbrushing -- and he did it with my hair . . . . a warm chestnut with caramel highlights. No red tones whatsoever. Just perfect! Way better than I could have even imagined. Talent . . . Talent . . .Talent!

I went to see Debra for corrective color. My dark hair was dyed blonde and damaged. She said my hair was too damaged to do anything with my base color, yet she could do highlights and the dark roots would blend in with the blonde highlights and it would look like Jennifer Aniston's after a few visits. After two months of appointments my dark roots were inches long and my hair simply looked like i hadn't seen a colorist in several months. I was not happy and tried to call Debra to discuss ANY other possible options for my hair. (I was even willing to go back to my natural dark brown.) Debra told the receptionist to tell me that she was not comfortable doing anything else with my hair, and now five days before my appointment, i get a letter from GSquared explaining how they "apologize for being unable to meet my hair needs, and therefore will no longer be able to provide services for me and are cancelling further appointments." I am surprised at how i have been treated by this salon. It was not a good experience.

Been bouncing around from salon to salon for a bit, never really finding the perfect stylist. Not that I'm a perfectionist or anything, but for the money I'm paying I want my stylist to listen to what I want and explain to me the basics of what they're doing, why and how much of a dent it's going to put in my bank account. I finally found Debra at G-Squared! She is very professional and personable as well. When I arrived for my appointment, I told her what I wanted, which was kind of a layered cut and I also wanted to get some highlights done to brighten up my look a little bit. Debra told me it would be no problem, and recommended some coloring options. I was a little hesitant, which is understandable with a new stylist, but as Debra worked we chatted and she put me perfectly at ease. She's a total sweetheart! When I was done my hair looked perfect and I rebooked immediately. To top it off, I ended up paying less than I am used to. It was an amazing salon experience, one I was desperately in need of! Thanks Debra!

I just moved to SOMA from Marin county and had no clue where to go for a super nifty hair cut in my new neighborhood. The first thing that impressed me was all the great reviews here on citysearch. The second thing that wowed me was late on a Friday afternoon I was able to schedule an appointment for the next morning. The third and most important, was how comfortable I felt in the wonderfully talented and capable hands of Jocelyn. My hair is fine, nearly waist length, super curly, and hadn't been cut in seven months. Not only did she give me a fantastic, fresh, dramatic, and manageable cut in about fifteen minutes, she then gave me an awesome straight style The pricing is totally reasonable for the quality. Only downside is that they are not a full service salon, no waxing etc...I think they should expand their services!!! Nice place with great people.

Not knowing where to go being new in town I looked on Citysearch and found these guys right around the corner.I feel very lucky to have found Jocelyne for color. She is so sweet and easy going and above all talented with her coloring skills. The salon is just right with 5 or 6 stylist I think and everyone seem really nice.

I made an appointment with Jocelyne last week and LOVED her. She is so sweet and easy to talk to and thorough in her consultation. My hair was overcolored from a previous experience and she was able to add dimension and style to it. The salon is very chill with other nice and talented stylist. I felt so relaxed and welcomed. Hooked!!!

Absolutely the worst experience I have had at a salon to date. The stylists were nice, but that was the only positive thing that came out of my experience. A serious lack of professionalism, skill and communication make this salon highly undesirable. You would think in order to work in the business you would be educated on your subject matter. I guess not.

Definitely not recommended. Seek elsewhere.

I've been going to G-squared for a couple years now (god, has it been that long?). I have been getting my hair cut and colored by Debra, and I can't imagine going to anyone else. Debra is the friendliest, most consistent and, most importantly, most talented stylist I have ever been to. I knew from my first visit that she knew exactly what she was doing, and, even though I'm always nervous going to a new hair stylist, Debra put me right at ease, explaining to me how she was going to fix my color, and it turned out perfect. Then she gave me a fabulous new cut, one that I have stuck with since then. The salon is very easy to find and parking is a snap, much easier than the salons closer to downtown. I can't recommend G-Squared enough, they saved my hair!

Believe it or not I have never colored my hair before so I was quite nervous doing it. I met with Jocelyne and she made me feel very comfortable and even more so I love my hair color. The space is open and chill which I love and I couldn't be happier. Also, Jocelyne gets the job done in a short amount of time.

Moving from another area of California I didn't know what to expect in terms of hair salons and stylist. These transistions always make me anxious. Not to worry.. Jocelyne took good care of me. Not only is she super friendly and sweet she is talented and FAST!!!! The salon is friendly in general and I loved my hair color. The prices aren't cheap but not over the top either.

My husband and I just moved here from the east coast, and I needed to find a great stylist quick in order to make those all-important first impressions. After seeing the reviews here on citysearch and a couple other review sites, I called G-squared and booked an appointment with Deborah. The salon was easy to find, and I didn't have to try to navigate the confusing downtown area of a new city, which is always scary. My appointment began right on time and Deborah was really professional and very friendly. I described the cut I wanted, and she suggested that I touch up my old highlights. I was a little nervous, this being my first time with her, but when she was done (in what seemed like no time), I had an amazing cut and my highlight were exactly the way I wanted them. The salon itself was clean and had a great atmosphere. I can't believe I found a new salon and stylist so quickly!

I got "Hairlocs" hair extensions from Katya who works at this salon, and they were the best I've ever had. I have had extensions done a few times before, and the ones Katya did not only looked great but are reusable, and less expensive than some of the other types. Katya did a great job matching the extension hair with my own, and no one can tell (beside the fact that my hair grew a foot overnight!) that I have them in! I highly recomend this salon, and especially Katya if your looking for great hair.

I've been in San Francisco for almost 10 years, and hadn't ever managed to find a stylist that I was completely happy with. I was mildly satisfied by some, and , frankly, horrified by others (Why don't stylists listen to their customers?!). Anyway, that all changed last week when I saw Deborah at G-Squared. She took the time to listen to what I wanted, and proceeded to give me exactly that. My hair looks perfect, it's just the shade I wanted, and the haircut looked great when she was done and looks even better a week later! What was also very important to me was the way I felt so relaxed. The salon has a laid-back atmosphere and everyone is super-friendly.

On top of all of that, I spent less at G-Squared than I have at pretty much every other salon I've visited! (Even the horrifying ones)

Pros: Professional, but still relaxed atmosphere. Perfect cuts and color!

I've had my hair highlighted since I was thirteen in preparation for my Bat Mitzvah. I've been through it all and I know good technique -- and Susan's got it. She's given me highlights - soft and buttery and subtle -- and other times chunky and bold. She reads my mood and delivers - and I'm not easily satisfied. In fact, this is the first review I have ever left for some one -- and I highly recommend her. As a side note -- this place takes professionalism to a new level. Always on time and sincerely pleasant. My highest recommendation!

I just moved to the SOMA area and my neighbor suggested trying these guys. Couldn't be more happy.. I was booked with Katya and enjoyed her fresh approach to hair. She is young, hip and very talented and I love my color which is different than anything I have had in the past.

Just tried out G-SQUARED -- saw Katya -- and loved it! She's very warm and personable - but most importantly, she matched my color exactly. I just moved here from Miami -- and of all the drama of a move -- I feared most finding a new hair stylist. I'm Latina from Venezuela and take my look very seriously. She gave me very natural highlights and updated my cut. I could not have been happier. Loved the space too -- extremely professional.

Pros: Knows latin hair -- very professional -- wonderful highlights

I have been highlightling my hair for years... highlights, lowlites and in between. I was looking for something differernt... something fresh with color not your typical 2,3,4, different colors faded in. I met with Katya and feel very lucky!!! She gave me the most hip, updated color with shades of lights and darks different indeed than other colors I've had panels of interesting colors. She is skilled beyond her peers.
Fun and sweet I can't wait to see what shecomes up with next. The staff is very nice!!!!!

I went to Neil on a recommendation from my bestest girlfriend. She has been going to him for 7 years! That speaks volumes to me. I have curly hair and wanted someone who knew how to work with it -- and Neil does. After the cut, my hair still looked even. After showing me that it was even (just to pacify my paranoia) he blew it out straight for the evening. Loved it! He's a very nice guy too -- showed me some tips on how to get it to look salon finished when I do it at home. I give him my highest recommendation!

I've been coloring my hair for 20 years and have never been happier -- Neil is the best. I've got Asian hair. I lift my base plus get highlights. No one has been able to do this without pulling red until Neil. I was very nervous about going to a new hair stylist -- I have longish hair and didn't want to risk damaging it. Neil gave me a complimentary consultation -- and walked me through exactly what he would do and what he expected the results to look like. I did bring pictures. He even did a hair test. He's very thorough and made me feel very comfortable. He was not dismissive of my concerns -- but addressed them. I've been going to him now for over a year -- and wouldn't go anywhere else.

Susan is a doll - She just re-did my color/highlights after a painful experience over in Hayes Valley! I've got my surfer girl streaks back with no crispy ends -- and no red undertones either. She's the best. And to top it off -- wonderful personality that makes the 2 1/2 hours fly by. Thrilled to have found her.

I have been to many colorist around the northbay,...some ok experiences, some not so good, I looked online to try and find a Salon in San Francisco with a grade A reputation and I found G-Squared. I also found Kimberly one of their TOP colorists. My hair was dark black and I was looking to go back to blonde. Kim was confident that she could do this with no problem. With some miracle product she took me back to a beautiful blonde. I will never go to anyone else. Thank you G-Squared!!! I really would recommend their service to anyone.

After going elsewhere, my highlights were brassy and uneven. I was recommended by a co-worker to try G-Squared, specifically Debra, who she has been seeing for a while. I couldn't get in as soon as I wanted, so I waited for a few extra days and I am so glad I did! Debra was very professioinal, yet easy to talk to and she made me feel very comfortable and confident that she could help me.
My hair turned out amazing! I am very happy to have found a new hair stylist in the city.

Susan is wonderful! She knows color and can work magic. I came into G-SQUARED with a botched bleach job on Asian hair (not pretty!) -- and she completely toned out the brass and added some beautiful caramel lowlights. Not only did she do my color well -- but she updated my do! Love her! Loved the experience! Love G-SQUARED!

I first went to G Squared when I moved here from Boston. I have been everywhere when it comes to expensive salons. It seems many hairstylists really couldn't care less what happens once you're out the door. However, at the G Squared Salon the service is above average WITHOUT the self-righteous, overly gossiping attitude that you usually find in most salons. But let's be honest, all hair salons gossip to some extent. That's the fun part!

So, the first time I went in, I needed major color correction. Kimberly worked with me on what I wanted and fully discussed what her definitions of certain terms were in comparision to mine, which is most important when reaching the goal of having effective communication. this eliminates any confusion or unexpected hair mishaps down the road. Never do you want to leave a salon in tears... not sweet.

Anyways, the outcome was amazing. It looked natural and really made a large difference from what we had begun with. Kimberley was really sweet, understanding and just gets the job done. She has years of experience, so she is trustworthy and won't try to do experimental things on your head unless you are willing.

The staff in the salon are really nice; the receptionist super friendly and not that "we're talking about you behind your back" friendly. It's a small joint, but charming and trendy at the same time. I have never gone back to the same salon more than twice and my next visit will be my 4th! I will only go to her. It takes awhile to get an appointment, so calling ahead is best.

Overall, the fact that I even took the time to write this review shoud inform potential customers of the level of recommendation it comes with. It is expensive, but no more expensive than any other salon, especially in San Francisco. The price is worth the comfort of knowing that you won't be annoyed or dissapointed, because when it comes to your hair; happy hair makes a huge difference.

Cheers!

Parking was easy and the salon was very inviting.

After moving back to the Bay area I was unaware of a good salon that could continue treating my difficult highlighting and color regime. I chose "the best salon for colour" for obvious reasons. I was pleased to easily book an appt with Kimberly.

My first impression of the salon I found a little pretentious. It is going for a mellow, artist-loft feel. Very co-oppy and a little forced with the receptionist immediatly pushing me into the bathroom to change. The atmosphere is clean, fresh, and a little baren and bright.

I was happy when I met Kimberly who appeared a little more non-conservative then the rest of the stylists. I figured she could understand my requests without airing on the safe side. She did an extremely good color job, being very honest about my needs without pumping me to do more expensive work. A VERY likeable woman back to the industry after a break, she will become very popular I am sure. I was most impressed by the exceptional haircut she gave me, maybe the best I have ever received. My trivial concerns about the salon quickley melted away in her hands. After a while I felt like I was visiting a cool, talented friend in her home!

The place is pricey, but I was expecting that. Worthe it? Yes. I will return.
