Anita is at Bria Salon in Burlingame. She goes by her real name now, Gina. Many of the former "Yosh" stylists are there now--great salon!

I just found out that Anita has left Gina Khan Salon ... Does anybody know where she went? Is she at another salon in San Francisco.

I started going to Yosh right out of college in 1991, and have NEVER been disappointed with a cut or color. Being in the arts, I don't have a million dollars, but I made going to Yosh a priority because it pays to maintain a chic, professional look. Last minute appointments are usually not a problem -- which I really appreciate given my hectic, changing schedule. The place is elegant, clean, stocked with the latest fashion magazines and replete with wonderful coffees and snacks provided gratis. Their work really is wonderful, consistent and reliable. I have received admiring comments and compliments about my hair for eighteen years! The staff is a little distant, but they are friendly and very efficient. I appreciate their distance, actually, having been "chatted up" at other salons. You can relax at Yosh and settle in for a morning or afternoon without being pestered by personal questions and so on. I highly recommend this salon and I am very difficult to please!

I read the negative review about this salon and decided to share my positive experience. I was there for a custom highlight and hair cut one day. When I decided I wanted the color changed after it was completed, I was immediately attended to with no complaint from the staff. Since I was there longer than the usual time it takes to do a highlight, I was politely offerred food AND beverages. They have a coffee/ juice bar and often have snacks on the same table. The head colorist even offered me lunch when I was there! Now thats what I call service!

In addition, after many disappointing hair cuts from fancy and mediocre salons, I happened upon Hope who is a premier stylist at Gina Khan. I FINALLY had a hair cut that was FABULOUS!!!! AND it didn't take an hour to cut my hair!! AMAZING!!! When you have a professional who knows what they are doing thats how it shoud be. Hope is an incredible stylist who will make you look the best you can. She is contracted with Loreal and does many shows, including runway etc. I HIGHLY recommend her for your next hair experience! And to top it off she has a great personality and is down to earth, not like the usual uppity salon types you find at premier salons. The rest of the staff is also very friendly. Book in advance because her appointments fill quickly!

hi, our mother used to work at this salon when it was previously owned by Yosh. It was amazing, always busy and the people are great. You got really good cuts and color and well worth the price. We've just read some previous reviews, and i'm telling you, do not listen to these people that say they were bad. All the workers are amazing and good friends, they do a fabulous job, and are NEVER snobby. Gina is great too, and I don't see how you these people can give such terrible reviews. Oh and whoever wrote that article that never writes articles. Yeah news flash for you, if you're late anywhere, people are going to be a little mad because you scheduled your appointment and hair dressers have a lot of people to fit into one day. So don't write reviews again because you are wrong. This information comes from two girls whose mother used to work there and is a fabulous hair dresser. Yosh For Hair is a fabulous place to go, and you all should go for a conseltation today. :]

PLEASE READ SO THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN TO YOU!
I have been a customer at the former Yosh for years. Because of this, I "stuck" with them after Gina Khan purchased the salon. In the past couple of years, the quality has become alarmingly low & I have been SHOCKED BY THEIR RUDE SERVICE!!
Here are a few examples:
-- I was scheduled for a cut/color & after they finished my color they told me the person who was going to cut my hair was out sick...I WAITED FOR HOURS WITH WET HAIR & THEY DIDN'T EVEN OFFER ANY COMPENSATION WHATSOEVER.
--On another occasion, the colorist "made a mistake" and FORGOT TO HIGHLIGHT AN ENTIRE SECTION OF MY HAIR & there was a round circle on the back of my head. I noticed this once my hair was cut & dried. There was no way I was going to go out looking that way! The colorist corrected it but DIDN'T OFFER TO DRY MY HAIR AFTER I PAID FOR A CUT/COLOR/BLOW-DRY!! The whole procedure took hours & no compensation was offered whatsoever!! And, of course, I was stuck w/ a pretty huge parking fee at the Sutter/Stockton garage.
--I was less than ten minutes late to an appointment because I missed the Muni (figured I wouldn't risk huge parking fees if I got stuck there again) & was literally out of breath once I arrived at the salon after running to get there. I told the stylist that I wanted to grab a glass of their iced tea & THE STYLIST YELLED AT ME FOR BEING TEN MINUTES LATE & SAID I COULDN'T HAVE ANY TEA & THAT SHE DIDN'T HAVE TIME LEFT TO DO MY HAIR!
The place got a good name when it was owned by Yosh & has become a bit of a "factory." Just try calling them. Even try during a time the phone shouldn't be busy, like the middle of the morning on a weekday...guaranteed, they'll put you on hold & they won't be friendly once they get around to your call.
I've never written an online review about anything before, but have been so upset with this place, I felt I needed to let people know. I really hope this information helps people! :)

WOW!!! This place can get jammed packed. The place is a bit crowded and busy. But just as long as I get accomodated and my service is done perfect, I'm all for this salon. I've been coming here for a little over a year. I see Melinda for cuts and Tiffany for color. I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE THEM!!!! See these ladies if you do ever want a great cut and/or color.

This place is terrible - Stay away - there are far too many great plans to have your hair done in SF. These people really gave me bad haircuts and not good color. And color doens't even come with a blow-out - ridiculous! Not to mention the staff is way snobby and aloof - like they're doing me the favor rather than ME PAYING THEM. I'm telling you ... you don't want to go here.

How anyone can possibly not enjoy their experience at Gina Khan's Salon is beyond comprehension! You walk into a stylish decor and ready snacks and beverages, a friendly staff is available to take care of your every need, you can even get manicures and pedicures there now. I myself have been here for two thermal reconditionings to straighten my out of control curly hair - and could not be more pleased with the results. I feel welcome and well treated for the whole 8 hours (thats the length of the procedure for the thickness and lenth of my hair!!!) - how many places can you sit for 8 hours and be perfectly comfortable and well looked after??? There is no place I would trust for a thermal straightening other than Gina Khan's - no salon experience is complete witout a visit here!!

My wife goes there every two weeks and it is the highlight of her weekend. She really enjoys being pampered, especially on a budget! I've been in with her before and gotten some work done and the staff is fantastic. It's a nice little place with a very friendly environment. I know we will continue going there for years!

PROS: Good staff and pampering is fun
CONS: None that I can think of.

I usually don't waste my time writing reviews, however when I jumped on to grab my salons # and saw a bad review had popped up... I had to disagree!!! I have referred many friends to this salon because I have found that they provide excellent service at a great price. I go to Isabella for color and she has taken me from Dark Brown to Blonde w/o damaging my hair and turning it orange. Ellie is also great for cuts....she does awesome blowouts. I am very picky and have tried many places in the past...this salon and Ellie and Isabella are the best in SF!!!

Although the services are not to the caliber that they were formerly, a helpful attitude and clean, modern facilities are found here. A bit pricey compared to other salons but that is probably due to the 'classy' atmosphere of Maiden Lane.

PROS: Pleasant, good staff
CONS: Expensive

my natural hair color is dark brown. i wanted to go lighter so i went to a salon and the colorist made my hair ORANGE with more orange highlights. i hated the way it looked. so a friend recommended isabella at yosh for hair. the first time she colored my hair she was very cautious as to not damage it, yet the result was a big improvement. the next time i went in the color was exactly what i wanted in the first place. i was thrilled.

I have had my hair cut here for over 20 years. I arrive feeling like an old bag and leave feeling I should be on the cover of Vogue because my straight hair now has movement, shape, style and glamor. My stylist does fresh new styles for me at my request.
My daughter gets her hair colored a different color every 6 weeks because she loves change. The color job looks natural and glossy, not flat, dull and limp as elsewhere. Gina Khan has got to be THE premier colorists in SF. having taught so many in SF, Tokyo, Paris and around the US.
Another bonus for me is seeing celebrities from the movies, sports and theatre.
The salon is beautiful with fresh flowers, free beverages and client appreciation days. I feel relaxed and welcome there.
If you love yourself you belong in this salon.

What an incredible place. First, the service is amazing and feels like a 5-star resort. Everyone is friendly and goes out of their way to make you feel special. Second, the quality of their services is incredible. I've had great hair cuts/styles and have been going now for about 2 years. I've had several friends who have gone to Yosh for over 5 years and they refuse to go anywhere else. Finally, they truly have the latest and best technology and products -- I heard that their owner gets invited to attend international conferences/events to teach hair styling/coloring classes! Great place.

I love YOSH for Hair Gina Khan. I have visited a number of the Yosh colorists, including award-winning Gina Khan, and stylists and have loved them all. I have found the staff to be friendly and knowledgable - giving me cuts and colors that suit my lifestyle (i.e. I need low maintenance, and a graceful look at the cut/color grows out since I am slow to come in for maintenance) - and every time I have been delighted with result. They always reassure when I try something different that if I am ever displeased, to call them and they will fix it (as all good Salons should). I know they are committed to me looking my best.

Every woman wants gorgeus hair. And, every woman (over 35) wants to look younger and sexier. Well, I'm no exception. I went to Gina Khan Yosh for Hair to get help in that department. When I arrived at the salon, my hair was overstressed by bad haircuts, worn out bodywaves and a new crop of gray hairs. Gina Khan took on the challenge of giving me some stunning highlights that covered up my gray and breathed new life into my drab hair. Next, a fabulous haircut by Taide. I ended up with a beautiful layered look that gives me great verstility and easy care for my very active lifestyle. In the end, I got what every woman wants- gorgeous hair. All my friends and business associates commented how much younger I looked. That alone just makes me feel sexier!

My daughter and I chose Yosh for Hair Salon for the big event. After months of planning for the main event, I wanted my daughter to have all her fantasies realized. What could be more important to a bride than her gown, hair and makeup on that day.
Her hair was styled expertly with the most careful attention to detail. The hair ornaments that were brought to the salon were placed just right. Yosh for Hair also had arranged an expert cosmetic artist to apply her makeup. Dear old mom got the royal treatment as well. My formal updo was stunning. I never looked so good before. The best part was that the salon staff made my daughter and I so relaxed that all our prenuptial jitters vanished. My daughter and I can't wait to go back for regular visits!

I've been a satisfied "YOSH" customer for 15+ years. People stop me on the street and even in my car to say "great hair!". Everyone is skilled and professional; the staff is friendly. There is a true "family" feeling as many employees have been there for many years. But don't think they're not "hip". I know they continually update their knowledge going to all the big hair shows, and keeping up on current trends. In my case, they've kept this 58 year old looking good inspite of the advancing effects of gravity. I wouldn't go anyplace else.

If you want crowd stopping hair go see Isabella at Yosh For Hair. Everywhere I go someone is telling me how beautiful my hair looks. The color is vivacious and it literally sparkles. As for the salon, it has a very warm and zen feeling which is very relaxing. All the people I've met there are very welcoming and are genuinely nice. But seriously, go see Isabella!

I came into this salon and felt extremely intimidated. When I first met my stylist and colorist I was suprised how friendly they were. The price may not be that affordable, but the price meets up to the service. I guess some people expect more than others and thats why they complain about this salon. But I'm more than glad to be a client at YOSH. I get compliments all the time on my color and cut. They make me feel and look beautiful everytime I go there. I've been a client since 1995 til forever.

This place was previously fab but I think it has gone downhill. Now the atmosphere is very hectic and the people who work there are so snobby that it is bordering on rude. I'd especially comment that the skills level of the cutters and colorists are not worth the really super high prices this place is now charging. Bascially, they once had an AWESOME reputation in SF and they are still living off of that and charging these super high prices for that reputation but the place no longer deserves it. Overall, not worth the money and no longer a good experience.

PROS:
CONS: Hectic atmosphere, Snooty Receptionists, Low Skill

If you are looking to be pampered and at least come out with a decent do...forget it. The attitude at Yosh is unreal. Rude. Actually mean at times. What amazes me is that they are NOT actually skilled...so why do they have any reason to be high and mighty?!!

I've had 2 bad haircuts here. The 1st time it took me 6 mos. to growout. I went back a second time - without knowing my cut was from YOSH the stylist says, "Why is your hair different lengths on each side of your head? These layers are messed up." I was like, "Uh, I got this cut here." Then I had my haircut a 2nd time with the 2nd stylist but the 2nd cut is bad too. Everyday since has been a bad hairday - it was extremely expensive, too. I called to complain - they said they'd fix it. Yeah right - I really need a 3rd haircut to confirm the cuts are bad. Summary: Mediocre quality at the highest prices in the cuty - You can get similar cut anywhere for half the price - probably a better one!

I've had 2 bad haircuts here. The 1st time it took me 6 mos. to growout. I went back a second time - without knowing my cut was from YOSH the stylist says, "Why is your hair different lengths on each side of your head? These layers are messed up." I was like, "Uh, I got this cut here." Then I had my haircut a 2nd time with the 2nd stylist but the 2nd cut is bad too. Everyday since has been a bad hairday - it was extremely expensive, too.

Cons: , high prices, hectic atmosphere

There are a handful of experienced techs in the city and Minerva is one of them (and I've been to most of the so-called spas/highend places for nail services). She has been doing this for 20+ years at other places. This place just added nail services. She's clean and thorough. It costs more than going to a neighborhood spot but it's worth it.

Pros: nail services

I went there for a hair color only and was dissapointed at every turn. First of all it is the most unpeaceful environment since everyone is crammed together-a salon should be relaxing. Second, after my color was done i was asked if i wanted a brush to dry my own hair! No one mentioned this to me when making an appt. The colorist would not have even SEEN her color job on my if i had not complained. In the end, i felt the colorist did not listen to what i wanted and i was very unsatisfied with both the color and service.

I went to this salon to have my hair colored. The colorist said she was going to give me a light honey color and that was the only color we discussed. It came out very dark brown-almost black. Also, they don't blow-dry your hair. The colorist asked another woman to show me how to do my hair. She put in way too much product and scrunched my hair with her hands. I walked out with wet hair and looking like I just walked out of 1981 with my big scrunched hair full of product. Also, I showed up on time for the appointment and they made me wait a full hour. I don't recommend this salon. Find a better place or you may be sorry.

Pros: Location

I've always found the people at Yosh to be very nice and not at all snobby. I always get a great cut and Color (Maria and Carmen). It is pricy, but you get what you pay for.
