I have not found a better stylist in 15 years. I started having Shaun Farmer cut my hair about 8 years ago. Since then he has been cutting all my friends hair. He is great at make overs, new cuts, and haircuts that are cutting edge. I have really curly out of control hair. He know just how to texture my hair to get it to lay just right. When it comes to color, he does a fantastic job. Regardless of what color you want or the amount of colors (I have had as many as five) he does a fabulous job! I flew from Seattle to San Francisco for this hair cut because he moved. I will return in March for another hair cut because it is definitely worth the flight!\r\n\r\nWhen I came to work Monday morning everyone asked me who cut hair. My answer is always the same.. Shaun did! and he is truly fabulous!\r\n

After years of disappointing colorists who were unable to match a shade of blonde to my olive skin and stylists who cut a half a foot of chunky layers off my hair farm, i was finally referred to Lauren by a friend. She is a BLONDE WIZARD! And, she gives me a fantastic cut every time as well. Not an over the top glamorous one (because that's just not me), but naturally beautiful because she knows i can't be hassled with product and blow-drying. Last time i went in, she said she was moving to a salon called Head and Soul. I will follow her wherever her career takes her. Thanks Lauren! You're my saving grace!

Pros: lauren is also the best shampoo scalp massage i have ever had!

Cons: the bathroom is tiny and awkward.

Ever since my aunt decided to pop out babies and stop doing hair I've been on a never-ending search for the right hair stylist. It's been about 4 years and I have been to a different stylist every time. They've ranged from horrible to mediocre with hairstyles ranging from bowl cut to dog show hair. The last, last lady I went to gave me the ugliest, unflattering, and BLUNT layers I have ever seen. I was scared that my hair was beyond repair, (I wanted to fix it, but somehow keep the length) but heard many good things about Amber at Bladerunners, soo I decided to schedule an appointment. I don't know how she did it, but not only did she fix my hair, I actually ended up loving the cut! I don't even remember the last time I loved my hair after an appointment. I live in Los Angeles now, but I will forever be faithful to Amber until she decides to start popping out babies.

After ten years or not having a hair cut, my best friend finally talked me into going ot her stylist Tony at Bladerunners. It took some convincing being as how they charge $70 for a haircut and I'd never paid more than $15. I've been going there for the past year ever since. Tony is fantastic, I absolutely love my hair cut, he's pleasant, and I'm always a very satisfied customer.\r\nMost importantly though, and I was NOT expecting this when I first went, when Joseph aka Joe, shampoo'd my hair, he gave me the most amazing head massage ever. That alone made it worth the trip out to the city (I live on the peninsula) and worth the $70. Joe is amazing, he also styles and blowdries my hair out after every cut, or you can request him specifially just to blowdry your hair or do your color. Needless to say, he is my regular person now as he is great! He always takes his time and makes my hair look fabulous. I don't even have to specify what I want because I know that whatever he does I will love. If you're looking for a good hair cut, go see Tony, and if you just want a RED HOT style for a night on the town, along w/ the most awesome head massage EVER, see Joe. You WON'T be disappointed. Bladerunners Salon ROCKS!

I get my hair done by Lauren and I totally trust her. For the first time in my life I can relax and not ""back seat drive"" my stylist the way usually have to. I am used to keeping a vigilant eye on the mirror while getting my hair cut (I have very wavy hair prone to getting HUGE if not cut right... it's dangerous) and now I just let her do her thing and I'm always happy with the result.

I usually get my hair done by my personal hair stylist, but she moved to new york. I went to this salon dec of 2005 and will never go back. she recommended me to go to bladerunners and I saw all the reviews and even have a few girlfriends that said it was a good salon. Im not sure if it was just the stylist that was inexperienced.. I ran into a friend the other day that also had a bad experience with this hair salon and this is my reason for posting this review!! i think people should do research before trusting your hair with just anyone. when i went, i left the salon MAD as can be. I wanted to kick the little girl that did my hair. I was literally left butchered as if i got my hair stuck in a lawn mower. Be sure you know who your going to see before you go get your cut done. Aside from my horrible haircut, the hair stylist swore she knew exactly what she was doing-- only because she knew my hair was horrid-- so she kept trying her best to style my ragged hair.. Dont go to amber.

i have been going to blade runners since 2003 and wouldn't change for the world. i work in the salon/spa environment and receive compliments on my color and cut daily! i never hesitate to recommend this gem! recently my stylist rebeccah moved down south, but she made sure to let me know about how great stephanie is. i was hesitant at first and actually sent my boyfriend in as a test monkey and she totally impressed me - took time to talk to him about what look he wanted to achieve, what was realistic, and she made sure to pull some photos so he could get a visual. needless to say, he's never looked better :) it's worth the $.

Pros: skill, talent, good product lines, cutting fashion

Cons: young & disinterested front desk staff, parking

I used to live close by this salon and would get my hair cut on a regular basis from them. Great location, top quality hair stylist. Plus all the fun people watching out the window as you get your cut. I would recommend getting a slice at Escape from NY pizza after your cut.. color...whatever.

I loved this chic salon. It is full of trendy looking stylists and they all seemed to be very experienced. My favorite part of the salon is the handing decorations. This can kept your mind from getting bored when you have to take a long time to get your hair colored like I do.

PROS: Very Trendy!
CONS: Very Expensive!

I was not really impressed with the stylists at Blade Runners.. Being on Haight Street, I was not surprised that the setting and people would be a liitle "punkish". But that is not the reason I don't recommend it. The prices are way to high for the kind of service. The lady that flat ironed my hair charged 60 bucks and it was frizzy and unruly. She told me that it was my hair's fault. It would not straighten. Thats balony. Other stylists have done the job. So if you want nice service at that kind of price, might as well go some place better. Its not worth it here.

i have been going to jenny at bladerunners for the past couple of years and i trust no one else with my hair(she even came to my wedding and gave me a stunning updo). everyone who works there is really sweet and attentive(with the exception of a couple of receptionists). to be perfectly honest the first time i went there i was really nervous and felt a bit out of place (they are all super funky and covered in tattoos) considering i'm fairly conservative but i soon came to realize that they are all really down to earth and super nice! (lauren and stephanie have done my hair before too and they are really great as well) also, since the salon is in the haight its probably good to give yourself at least an hour to park or do yourself a favor and take a cab.

I just came back from an appointment with Emily, and I love my hair! A friend recommended her to me, and her reviews on citysearch are 100% accurate. She is very nice and spends time talking to you about what YOU want, as opposed to so many who just assume they know. I was her last appointment on a Saturday afternoon, but she took more time than any other stylist I've had to get my cut exactly the way I wanted it, and she made sure to ask my opinion as she went along. She's so nice and friendly but also doesn't need to have a forced conversation during. Overall a great experience - and the head massage during the shampoo was so relaxing!

blade runners is awesome! I just moved here and was really nervous about going someplace new, but after a couple reccomendations I tried Blade Runners. I wasn't sure at first since everyone seemed like a typical ""cool kid hipster"" but everyone was super nice to me! I got an amazing head massage at the shampoo bowl and my stylist did exactly what I asked for. I was surprised to see negative reviews on here, my only advice would be that just like anywhere else, make sure to be specific and you will get what you ask for. If you're not sure what you want they are all really creative and talented and have lots of hair books to look at. They even made my super damaged hair feel soft again! Magical! I would recommend this place to anyone

I am completely neurotic about my hair, and trust very few people with it. If I get bad haircuts, I freak out and get depressed. After a number of those kinds of experiences, and about 2 1/2 years without a haircut, I ventured over to Blade Runners about a year and a half ago. I have seen three people there (two of whom have moved), and each time been happier and more trusting than before. Most recently, I followed the recommendations of several others on Citysearch and made an appointment with Emily. This was the first time I didn't bring a photo, or go with even a clear idea of the exact cut I wanted. I just told her the things I like and don't like in haircuts, and she completely understood and did an amazing, creative job. I also have to add that I am a fairly difficult client, in the sense that I can't make up my mind about anything and usually change my mind once something is done. She not only put up with it, but she listened to what I was saying and made all the little changes and she didn't seem bothered by me at all. I will definately be going back to her.

I've been looking for a good stylist for a LONG time. And I mean someone I can talk to, trust, and know that will do what I want, how I ask. Lauren is the girl! I showed her a picture, and she did exactly what was shown. This shop on the popular Haight Street, is cute, and classy. The stylists are punkish, but don't let that fool you. The price for ALL cute are $60, which is a pretty good deal. They also sell Aveda and Bumble and Bumble products. Be warned: my sister went to Wendy, and the girl actually said to her "I can't cut it that way. " All stylists should be able to accomodate their clients! Instead, ask for Lauren or David, the owner. David also brings his adorable boxer everyday to the salon!!

I came in for a re-cut after being devastatingly butchered elsewhere. I had the great fortune of immediately getting an appointment with Emily, who not only saved my haircut, but gave me one that got multitudes of compliments, and which I have subsequently kept. She laughs when I tell her she's a genius, but seriously, SHE'S A GENIUS!

I have gone to Blade Runners for several years. Staff is friendly, not snobby. They give awesome cutting edge cuts...but just be sure you get the right person. I went one year ago and have not been back because this new girl did not even listen to what i wanted and she BUTCHERED my hair....gave me one inch bangs and a chin length bob, that just made my round face look like a bloated cow UDDER.....sick. so I didnt even get a haircut for a year cause I was so scarred. I dont know if she is still there, but she definitely does not fit in with the rest of the staff....who are skilled and open and listen. get a consultation first. they really care.

The staff is professional and welcoming, the atmosphere is modern and hip, and you can't beat the location. I was tired of stuffy downtown salons with pretentious attitudes, so I gave Blade Runners a try and was VERY pleased with the result.

I loved Amber! She listened attentively while I explained to her what I wanted to do with my highlights and gave me exactly what I wanted... and I am VERY PICKY! She also spent a good amount of time styling it at the end. She is sweet, attentive, and knows what she's doing. I would definitely go see Amber again.

One of the things my girlfriend and I missed the most about Chicago was getting our hair cut by Brenna at Milio's for the last year and a half (after three years of searching), so we weren't looking forward to a whole new process of elimination for finding a new stylist. The girl our friend recommended was booked until after Thanksgiving, and our hair was getting grossly out of control, so we decided to run the risk of taking an anonymous recommendation off of Citysearch. Turned out great. Emily was super friendly and detailed with the consultation and the cut. Rose even got a random compliment within the first half hour walking out of the salon. \n\nParking's obviously not the best and the price is what you'd expect for a salon in the area, so just suck it up and do it, you're going to look fantastic in the end.

Rose even got a random compliment within the first half hour walking out of the salon. \n\nParking's obviously not the best and the price is what you'd expect for a salon in the area, so just suck it up and do it, you're going to look fantastic in the end.

Pros: store dog

Cons: needs more magazines

.

I thought this place seemed cool, especially since it has a high rating through city search. WOW was I wrong. I asked for something SO SIMPLE, med. brown hair with a few light brown highlights. So she died my hair PITCH BLACK and put in orange highlights! Thank goodness halloween was coming up. I left, and cried when I got home. 200bucks down the drain, and even though I was charged for partial highlights, she put THREE streaks in my hair. I finally got up the courage to call, and they scheduled a free redo for three days later. When I went in, the girl told my that since my hair is now black, i would have to pay several hundred dollars to get the black out then die it brown. all she did was put toner over my highlights. Didnt even appologize. SO BUMMED, dont put yourself through this!!

Pros: not obligated to back

Cons: EVERYTHING, RUINED MY HAIR, CHARGED WAY TOO MUCH

I just visited the salon yesterday and had to write a review to warn everyone. The service is definitely horrible. I went in for highlights and the stylist was more concerned about looking in the mirror at herself and chatting with the staff instead of paying attention to my hair. She didn't really even ask how I wanted my colors to come out and just started working on it. It was horrendous! Be warned - the colors you ask for are not what you're going to get!!! My hair is a mismatch of colors, the service was extremely poor, and it was not at all worth the $130.

Emily is the woman!!! She is by far the best person I have ever gone to for a haircut. She makes sure that she fully understands what you want accomplished and continuously checks in throughout the cut making sure you are happy. She is honest with advice if you ask for it and she is sweet and easy to chat with while sitting in her chair. I can't speak on anyone else there, except that the colorist I had was somewhat short and abrasive with me, so I can't vouch for her but the girls at the front desk are pretty righteous too...overall I haven't gone anywhere else since finding it.

I first heard about Blade Runners from a trendy hair salon all the way in New York City. What great a great recommendation! Ive been going for almost a year now and my hair has never looked so good. I suggested Wendy and Amber to my sister. She was just as happy with the results. We both receive many compliments on our hair.\n\nThe atmosphere at the salon is hip yet unintimidating. The staff is friendly and the artists create unique hairstyles that range from the most outrageous to something sensible enough for the office. Always a great experience. Their prices are reasonable too. Just remember to allow a little extra time for parking.

I have gone to Bladerunners off and on for a few years and had decent, if not pretty darn good, haircuts. However, the last time I went, they BUTCHERED ME and I'm miserable now. I look awful and it'll take months for it to grow out. I told them I wanted LONG layers and gave my usual requirement -- leave it all long enough for a ponytail. And what did they do? Gave me tons of short little layers (SO bad on curly hair!) and now I can't even pull it back into a ponytail until it grows out. I have to suffer this frizz helmet for at least a couple of months. CURSES ON YOU, Bladerunners! I won't ever go back and I'll tell everyone I know not to step foot in there.

Pros: Looks neat inside, Nice enough staff

I've been going to Blade Runners regularly now for a couple of years and I've been consistently happy with the service and the cut/color. Everyone I've dealt with has been pleasant, the bull dog is adorable, and while it's a little pricey - it's about the norm in the city.\n\nI've recommended the place to friends and they've all been just as happy. My sister and I both go to Joel and he's always done a great job.

I've been going to Bladerunners the last few years. Each experience has been positive. I usually have a clear idea of what I want and Joel (for haircuts) and Rebecca (for highlights) always deliver.\n\nReading other customers' negative reviews re: attitude is like night and day from my own. Don't know which stylist(s) they have had these experiences with but Joel and Rebecca have always been friendly, accommodating, and fun. My only complaint is the parking situation but if you have the patience and the time, it's worth enduring for the stylists' skill-level and reasonable prices.

Pros: Skilled Stylists, Friendly

Every time I get my hair cut by the owner I am happy. His stylists are another story. I went to the salon for a trim and got a cut, a straightening iron, and products for the bargain price of $250.00. The cut is fine if you have an hour and a half to style it which I explained to the stylist that I didn't since I teach fitness for a living and I need a hairstyle that does not need a lot of fuss. I am also trying to grow my hair out which is now impossible to do since my hair has completely split up the shaft from all of the processing. I look like I put my finger in a lightsocket. So I have to get a new short hair cut and spend another year growing out my hair.

I have been a client of bladerunners for about four years now, and i have consistantly recieved spectacular service. After each visit to the salon, i am amazed with the way they are able to transform me. The staff is great and it is not difficult to get in. I usually need evening appointments but they are also available on weekends. I couldnt think of a bad thing to say about the salon.

I went there about four years ago for a cut and color and received a mediocre haircut and boring color when I had stated clearly what I wanted. Went there again this year and had one of the worst haircuts of my life. Met a coworker at at party that night and she had gone to the same salon different stylist that day and received the worst haircolor and cut I had ever seen. Horrible

My haircut was cool- definitely experimental- albeit slightly freaky----but I have to agree that the ""tude"" factor in that place is a little much for me-- and there cuts ain't all that- customer service is pretty crappy

I went to Blade Runners for a cut and color and have never felt more ignored in my life. My hair turned out OK, but the entire time I was there, I felt as if the stylist would rather be anywhere else besides cutting my hair, since I was clearly not worth her time. \nThe stylists here have a lot to learn about customer satisfaction and making clients feel welcome and comfortable.

This place is definitely worth to keep. I used to go to those expensive hair salons. Around this tight budget economy, Ive decided to cut my budget a bit, but not the service. The result is this place is a winner. The hair stylists are talented and very up to date with current fashion. For $50, they do a greta job from layer to very daring short. Just bring the picture of the style you want so both of you know what to look forward to. Its easy to schedule an appointment since they have a lot of hair stylists. However, dont expect any royal treatment (they dont even offer you water.) The process is straightforward. You come, you sit, and they cut your hair. In short words, we need this kind of salon more so all girls can look fabulous with a little cash.

I came to this website to search for the most kick-ass salon in the city, and saw Blade Runners at the number one spot....Now, after an awesome dying job done by James (it's EXACTLY what I wanted!), and not to mention a very enjoyable hair-salon experience, I am convinced that this rating holds great truth....If you're still sitting there contemplating which salon to go to, ponder no further....Just go to Blade Runners, you'll love the place.\n\n~Lana~

I went to Blade Runners without knowing anything about it. I got the best hair cut and highlights that I have had IN MY LIFE. If you go, request James for your color stylist. He is friendly and does a fantastic job!
