I have been very excited to try Fringe Salon and when I saw a CBS Deal through Townhog for $200 Worth of service for $100, I immediately purchased it. I called Fringe to set up an appointment on 6/28 and told the receptionist that I had

I have been going to Desiree since moving to SF a couple of years ago and she is awesome. Aside from her general fabulousness as a person, she is an amazing hairdresser who always manages to understand my terrible attempts at vocalizing what it is that I want. And, to boot, her prices are wonderfully reasonable. I would refer her without limitation to absolutely anyone!

Desiree is FABULOUS!!! Her colors look natural (or not if that's what you want) and her cuts - amazing. And she does evening hours!!!!

She takes the time to talk to you about what you want, what works for you & what doesn't. She's not afraid to play around with something new if you want. She's up to date on what's cool.

Definitely call Desiree for weddings and special occasions - she'll come to where your event is and bring everything you could need!

Now, if I could only convince my husband to go to her.

Fringe Salon excels at transforming brides and their attendants into beauties! I had my hair done with 6 other girls for a friend's wedding - couldn't have asked for nicer stylists - who worked their butts off getting us ready! Thanks to all the stylists in the salon - the wedding pictures came out great!

I've been going to Fringe for more than three years and what I love about the place is that is completely unpretentious. Everyone is extremely friendly and you can tell they enjoy what they do. I've been seeing Janine since day one and she is amazing. If you are looking for someone who gives a great cut and can make you laugh, try Janine.

Yah! Janine out did herself on my last cut and color. My best look yet!
I walked in to the salon feeling drab, my mood matching the gray weather outside. And I walked out 2 hours later feeling like a new woman! So many compliments about my hair since then! I would highly recommend Janine and Fringe to everyone. The salon is welcoming and they always have the most up to date products and techniques. Great prices too! Thanks again Janine!

Karen is the BEST! I look forward to my hair cut and color every four weeks for the past 8 years. I have so much fun with these ladies. In 8 years I have never had a bad hair cut. It always amazes me. What a relief it is to not have to worry about my hair. And.. I do not have genetically good hair. It is thin and frizzy. Karen is a natural at hair and a goddess in my eyes!!!
If you can not get Karen because she is so booked, I would book with Emily. I have never seen anyone that has worked with Emily walk out with bad hair. When Karen was on maternaty leave I had Emily do my hair and it was just as fabulous. I know I must sound over the top but I mean every word....

I went into fringe with color nitemare, it needed a fix. After informing me on what could be done, I sat back and put my trust into another "strangers" hands. I had been here before, but this time it was her honesty that led me to trust her to fix it.She told me what she was willing to do not what she thought I wanted to hear. I am pleased with the turn out and look forward to future visits to chana's chair. thankyou.

I called in on a busy Saturday, and was told the only appointment avail was with a junior stylist, and did I mind. I didn't, and scheduled my appointment for later that afternoon. From the moment I walked in, everyone was friendly, and helpful. After introducing herself, the first question Jen asked was to tell her about my hair, what I liked and what I didn't....this was a first! So after a short chat I sat back relaxed and let her work. From the moment she was done, I loved my new cut. There was none of the usual adjustment period. I liked it so much, that I made an appointment on the spot for a color. I think, after two years living in SF, I've finally found my stylist!! As for being a "junior" stylist...I would have never known! I reccommend Fringe, and especially Jen to anyone that wants a GREAT cut!

Great people, great location, great cut. Would definitely recommend "emily" at Fringe. Totally cool, interesting and she gives a mean haircut. I have had three cuts from her and one dye and loved them all.

I was walking by fringe on my way to do some Hayes street shopping, popped in to see if they could take a color walk-in. Sure enough within the hour I was seen, she talked to me about what upkeep I was really capable of commiting to.Within guidlines she asked for, I then decided to give her freedom to do what she felt suitable. I LOVE MY HAIR. YEAH!!! Thanks, Channa

I went into fringe on a friends recom., she was dead on. Not only was the price resonable but the owner was really friendly and the color turned out great. She also educated me on how to maintain the color longer,saving me money in the longrun!

This might be Hayes Valley's hidden secret. I've been looking for a good hair colorist since I moved here. HELLO! At first I was lost, pretty small (apartment-like) salon sits ontop of Hayes Street Grill. Great Job Chana! I'll be back.

Pros: no snobs, great mags, not pushy

Cons: parking...take transport..21 bus drops you in front...walk

I spent several years in san francisco and was never happy with any of my stylist. It was only after I moved to L.A. did I find Marisele at Fringe. After just one cut I was hooked, now I hold off on getting my hair cut until my visits to S.F. Marisele does an amazing job with my long straight hair, i've never received so many compliments on my hair until I met her. Her cuts are so great that even after several months (its been 4 now) of it being cut it still looks great. My only complaint is that she works one day a week on Saturday so I have to plan my trips back according to her schedule, but its worth it.

Chana has been doing my hair for a while now, I have fine hair, kinda hard to work with. But ever since I've been going to Fringe it's never looked better! Thanks for taking charge and making me feel beautiful.

I have been going to Fringe for almost five years and every time I walk out I am incredibly pleased with the cut and color. The salon has a laid-back contemporary feel. All the stylists are friendly, creative, and unique. I get compliments on my hair often but since I've been going to Chana at Fringe compliments have at least tripled. I highly recommend this salon.

I recently called around town on a frenzy.My stylist at salon that I've been visiting for quite some time called in sick at the last minute and their staff couldn't seem to squeeze me in. Chana happened to answer the phone on a very busy saturday morning.The bottom line, she squeezed me inbetween a color appt. It was a pleasant surprise, the cut that is but also the customer service.

Karen at Fringe Salon has been cutting my hair for over 5 years now, and she has been such a life saver. I have very frizzy/curly hair, that has always been difficult to manage. The week before I met with Karen, it was recommened to me by another hair dresser that I should either get my hair done on a weekly basis, or get a weave. But Karen is such a skilled stylist, that she cut my hair so it was easy to manage and it looks great. I am so grateful that I found her.

Fringe Salon is my total choice and I am paranoid and picky. I have forehead issues...bangs must be right..............Chana gets it. She is a doll, she is fun, and she listens.........................If you want a great job on your hair and color you won't go wrong when you call Fringe and make sure you ask for CHANA. She has been my stylist for 10 years and really keeps up with the latest color and cuts

I've been going to Fringe since it opened and love it. The stylists are laid-back and classy. Karen will work with what you want, but never let you make a decision in the wrong direction. It is the best break when I go. You can enjoy the conversations around you, participate if you want, or just read from the great selection of magazines. Always some sweets on hand if you want, and an easy glass of wine from the restaurant downstairs if you like. Everyone who leaves there ends up looking great. Keep going and and they'll know your hair better than you. Colors are great and it's always a fun place to be.

This salon was exactly what I was looking for! Fun, comfortable and great stylists. I got the best cut and color ever. I was thrilled with my hair and loving the atmosphere, and the stylists at FRINGE made me feel right at home with great energy and care. I've had my hair done by both Karen and Emily and each time they have had helpful input on my style and color. Knowing what I wanted with my cut without me having to explain, I trust them completly with my hair!

I happened by this place needing a haircut before an interview. Everyone there, from the great looking woman who shampooed my hair to the just as good looking woman who cut it, was professional, gentle, and fun. This is the kind of place you go back to more often than you need to, just because the people are so appealing, interesting, and most importantly, excellent at what they do.

I've had the same stylist since I was 12 (I'm 25) and every time I've tried someone new, I've absolutely HATED the results.

I went to Emily at Fringe on the recommendation of a friend and I was blown away - this is the perfect cut for me. She made me feel comfortable and safe in her hands from the moment I sat down - I love her calm, quiet and confident style. The first time I went, we were alone in the salon and that was perfect and relaxing. This last time, the place was a ZOO and a bit much. I agree that the other stylist could tone down the conversation a bit. It's got a bit of a slumber party feel.

Between Emily cuts I got a cut from my old stylist and it's going to be all Emily from here on out - she's the best.

Before I started getting my hair done at Fringe I thought that you always needed a few days to get used to a haircut. But ever since Emily has been styling my hair I love it from the second she's finished! Now I've been going for over 2 years and referred many of my friends and family. I love the friendly staff and cosy atmosphere.

The stylist for my haircut kept asking me exactly how I want this and how I want that throughout the entire cut. Isn't it the stylist's job to create a cut for me that suits me? If I know all that I would cut my own hair! During my cut, the other stylists kept trash talking another well known salon, which was very unprofessional. I did not like my cut, it was too choppy and layered for fine hair like mines.

Blink and you might miss this petite salon located next to Hayes Street Grill. At the top of a flight of stairs, you'll find a cozy setup with two chairs and a handful of stylists. Always busy, be prepared to sit backā€¦
