Horrible service!!!! – 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 the certificate. As only 2 stylists at the salon were honoring the deal, I decided to wait for the owner, Chaya, to return from vacation and scheduled my appointment for 7/9. Longer then I wanted to wait for much needed highlights but based on the reviews I decided a ponytail for 2 weeks will work!
Today, 7/6, I received a call from Fringe CANCELLING my appointment. When I asked why I was told that since the CBS/ Townhog had not paid the owner, she was cancelling all certificate appointments. Aside from making her problem mine, she also has me scrambling to find an alternate place as I have an important event that night that I need my hair done for.
I asked the person calling me why I couldn't just pay full price for this appointment and use the certificate for follow up appointment, a business savvy offer I would think. I was given such attitude that it is now not even an option.
So, aside from being out $100 and in a panic to find another salon, I am very angry. Logic dictates that Fringe Salon had this promotion to drum up clients. Based on the caviler way I was treated I will never go here and recommend strongly that others heed this warning. Lack of respect for clients does not bode well for such a personal service.
Love Fringe. Desiree is the best! – 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 is great. Janine is amazing. – 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.
Brilliant Hair Color! – 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!
Great Salon! Janine and Emily are the tops! – i've been going to fringe for 4 years now and i love it. all the stylists do a wonderful job. I see both janine and emily and have always been thrilled with the results-- and believe me, i'm very particular! i recently referred a friend who wanted her hair colored for her wedding day. she saw janine and was delighted with the results. all the stylists there do everything to ensure you leave fringe looking and feeling gorgeous -- i know i always do!
nite time hours yeah!!!!!! – I had a great color job done for the first time in a long time. Cute space. I made a 7pm color apt. and the owner stayed until 9 to finish. I love the flexabilty. thanks.
Karen Karen Karen or Emily – 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....
Vidal Sassoon-trained stylists Chana, Karen, Emily, Janine and Jen know how to do great hair. – The Scene
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 back and take in local art displayed on the baby-blue walls before hitting the hot seat.
Choose to frame your face with Shirley Temple bangs or dye your way from brunette to blond with one of three color options: single process, partial or full foil. Though you're the driver, stylists recommend a consultation so you end up looking like the babe you imagined, not a six-year-old singer. Bridal parties can beautify their mane with a classic or funky updo.
great color – 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.
