I went in with two things in mind: to cover the few grays that were starting to appear behind my temples and get rid of the reddish hint that some of us with fine Asian hair have, especially noticeable under the sun. Nothing against red, but just got tired of it. I also went in with a lot of apprehension, because my hair had virtually never been colored (read: processed) and it was in really good health. I got a same-day appointment with Debra, who listened to what I wanted, needed, was concerned about, and happily gave me a quote of what it'd cost me before we got started. It turned out beautifully - the color is exactly what I wanted (black with a hint of neutral brown, instead of dark brown with a hint of red), and my hair still looks and feels like it was as healthy as before. The blowdry and style afterwards was included in the price (eighty bucks before a ten percent discount for being a newbie to the place), which was nice. I don't make enough to come here often, but for a first-time taking of the plunge, it was worth it!

Pros: Very nice folks, cute chihuahua, wine and beer and tea and coffee, reasonable pricing, location convenient to public transit

Cons: only cash is accepted for tips

I started going to Pitch Salon a couple months ago to try and correct a hair coloring that went wrong when I decided to become a brunette. My hair is naturally a blondish brown color but the previous salon had made my hair too red. I saw Daelan and he new instantly what to do to make not only my hair look fabulous but allow my new walnut colored hair color to blend perfectly with my skin tone. I love my hair and I get asked all the time if this is my natural hair color....which is AWESOME !! I highly recommend Pitch Salon and Daelan for hair coloring and cut !

Pros: Great Atmospher, very friendly, knowledgeable and skilled

Cons: Slightly pricey...but worth it

Dealin's technique is consistently fabulous! Whether it's a haircut, style or color, he loves his work and my comely "coif" is a testament to that. His highlights are precise, tasteful and subtle; he'll make you look and feel like the rock star you are.

Note: Dealin will be moving over to Shag Salon as of the 2nd October.

I visted Pitch Salon for the first time and loved it. I had Dealan do my highlights and love..love..love my hair. Dealan is definately a hair color genius. The space is great also....not too big (like downtown) and not too small (like some neighborhood salons). One other thing I have to comment on is the cleanliness of the salon...I have been to a lot of salons and I have to say this is the cleanest I've ever been to.

They have an AMAZING stylis there named Lucy, who blowdryed my hair in just a half hour! My hair is very long & thick it's really hard to style. My hair has never looked that good before! I HIGHLY recomended her :-)

This little salon is just perfect! Its filled with light and warmth. The staff is friendly, and fun! I think anyone would feel comfortable at this salon. My stylist was kind, and great to talk with. And my hair cut was perfect and exactly what I wanted. From start to finish, it was a great experience. The salon owner addressed my questions via email before my appointment, so I greatly appreciated that too! Go now, and book your next hair cut with Pitch!

A couple of Friday's ago, had the pleasure of getting some much needed color repair with, Mac, their new colorist. (I understand he is a New York transplant.) For just getting off the plane from NYC (and NOT paying attention to jet lag), I found the salon owner to be very attentive. Aspirin, water, coffee - whatever comforts that could be supplied miraculously appeared.
Meanwhile Mac does the most fabulous color anywhere. (And, boy did he have his work cut out for him but we won't go into that!)
Would highly recommend Pitch Salon to anyone looking for casual salon experience, attentive service and perfect color!
(Oh + - I'm planning to get me some Pureology products on next trip!)

Yesterday I got my hair cut at Pitch and, yes, for once I found a stylist that was "right on". I went from long hair to short (something I hadn't done in a long time and was apprehensive about), but my stylist listened attentively to what I had to say and the cut came out even better than I would have hoped. I was also very pleased with the courteous reception I received when I walked in to the salon. Every one there was very attentive to their clients. For once I received great service from A to Z at a very reasonable price. Hats off to Pitch...pardon the pun!

It really depends on the stylist you get; while I've seen great cuts on others, I was unfortunate enough to get a stylist that does not understand my hair (her own hair looked like a mop of seaweed, so that should've been a clue), and gave a cut that's not at all flattering for the texture & color of my hair.

The stylist also chopped off a lot more hair than agreed upon, even after being physically shown the desired length. My hair also ended up being asymmetrical (not on purpose), with one side being an inch longer than the other. I would have been open to try another stylist, but the experience was so horrible that I'm not even going to bother.

Great spot! relaxing cool atmosphere with simple but soothing lines and decor. ambient music keeps you in the mood without becoming annoying or pumping. Besides the salon itself it has some excellent talent. I've seen great cut and color walk out of there each time i go for myself. I just love what Carlos does to my hair each time. He listens, puts you at ease as well as laughs and is extremly hospitable. Whatever you want he will accomadate you. he is the perfect complment to such a soothing salon

Pitch is. . .pitch perfect. I just happened upon it and it is making me beyond happy (a difficult feat based on my past hair experiences!). I have highlights and a cut everytime, and everytime I leave more and more impressed. Everyone mentions how great it looks and I always tell people that Pitch is the place to go.

Not only did Rosa Sifuentez do a superb job of coloring my 'do, but she worked absolute magic on my friend's hair.
My friend has very curly hair and has had the most difficult time finding someone who can do it justice. Since she has naturally curly hair herself, Rosa was able to help her create an eaasily managable, very flattering new cut that allowed the natural curl to shine. Very impressive work!
And, even though I live in the East bay, very worth a trip to the city!

Relatively new to town, I took a chance on Pitch and I'm glad I did. Great cuts, and excellent highlights, all for reasonable prices. With much-needed glasses of wine after work and a friendly staff, it's great!

I have not had a professional haircut in 8 years and am quite attached to my long, straight, locks. Mireya's confidence put me at ease and I am 110% satisfied with my new layered haircut. She was not only a wonderful hairdresser but a very genuine, articulate woman--it was enjoyable to spend the hour and a half with her. She took great care in giving me a fabulous haircut and advised me well on product use and haircare. I will certainly go back to her and Pitch salon in general was nice place to be.

My wife and I live in the east bay but both of us go to this new salon in Cole Valley and have been impressed with the service and stylists. I use mireya for my hair and my wife gets hers done by Shorreh. We love it.

I have lived in the city for a long time and I don't have a hair dresser. You would think that it wouldn't be so hard but for me it has been a quest. It is something so personable that I wanted someone that did a great job but that I could develop a relationship with and thus far it hasn't happened. Getting My hair done with is a treat to myself, something I want to look forward to and I think I' ve found it. Mireya did a great cut and put a beautiful color in my hair ! I looked awesome, but I also left happy and inspired. I will definatly go back to her. She did a great job and she is someone that I would like to see again too! Thanks

After visiting different salons in the city, and having no very good experiences, I found "Pitch", a new hair salon near Cole Valey. The staf is very friendly and profesional, is a calm place where you can really relax while getting your hair done. Mireya was my stylist, a latin sweet woman with a clear knowledge on this field, I highly recomend her, I am very happy with what she's done for me on my hair. Visit Pitch, you'll love it!

I've been dyeing my hair various shades for many years. As fellow red-heads know reds are a difficult color. Rosa is the first colorist to ever actually get my hair the shades of red that I wanted. I can't count the amount of compliments I have received on my hair. She wove in three shades of red creating a beautiful color. I love my hair color! Thanks Rosa!

I went in to see rosa and she totally gave me the best color I've had in a long time. She changed my brassy, drabby hair into something shiny and pretty. I swear, I thought that I had a catastrophy sitting on my head and that it would be a serious challenge. She sat me in her chair, did her magic, and I am so happy!She sent me home with some great hair products, too! I HIGHLY recommend Rosa from Pitch salon

After going to plenty of SF salons, Pitch was a refreshing change. I got an appointment at exactly the time I wanted and I LOVE my haircut! My stylist did just what I hoped for with a bit of extra flair and didn't push product at me. The location is excellent (just a block from the N) and they're open nights. I loved the atmosphere--the vibe was cool and fun without the hipster attitude that has made me dislike other salons in SF. It's definitely my new salon (finally!).

I have to say, there are a lot of places to get your hair cut in SF, and I've tried many in my search for the perfect balance of elements. With Pitch Salon, I found that comfort and style in the clean and light decor can be achieved without the attitude or prices of many other upscale salons here in town. My hair stylist, Emily, listened closely to what I wanted and was able to make suggestions that looked EXACTLY how I envisioned - and that's not very common in my experience, and downright rare at this price point! Thanks again Emily and Pitch!!

I've followed John from his last two salons. The last one reluctantly...However, Pitch has hit pay dirt! The salon is in a very cool, unpretenciuos neighborhood. The salon is very cool. It's a sweet place to just hang. I don't...but you could.
I have to say the best cut I've ever had is from John. Now I get a great cut at a great salon. Check it out. No smack!! (I'm not related or interested in John in any way)

I would normally not bother rating a salon, but I was in the past so disappointed with the other salons I went to that I feel it worth the effort to write a good review of PITCH. Finally a cut worth my money.
