I wouldn't rate this salon a 9.8 – I made an appointment at Sublime and was set up with Rosa (colorist). Rosa was very entertaining and made me feel comfortable but I felt she did not listen to how I wanted my color done. I told her I wanted my roots fixed with highlights and then I wanted low lights put in. I thought Rosa wasn't putting in enough high and low lights but I didn't say anything since the salon was so highly recommended on this site. After she took the foils out she quickly threw a toner in my hair. I thought this was weird since what is the point in getting high/low lights if you end up covering them up. So two weeks later I noticed the toner had almost washed out and you can see my roots again. She obviously did not put in enough highlights because you can see my roots!!! Even the women at work told me they thought I just got my hair done but they are seeing roots!! The cost of my color with the tip came to $200!! I feel robbed of my money. I wouldn't say this is a great salon b/c of this experience but it seems from the reviews that Lori and Terri are good, just don't go to Rosa as a colorist if you are a blond.
Highly Recommend Lori Dylan! – If you want to find the best colorist in the city, look no further, Lori Dylan at Sublime is the woman for you. I have followed Lori from salon to salon for almost 5 years. She has worked with me through my conservative highlights phase and my dramatic color change phase. She has a great eye and always makes recommendations that complement my style. Every time I leave the salon I look and feel great!
I highly recommend Lori Dylan for color............... – I change my hair color as much as my underwear!Lori is never fazed,truly professional,with a sunny disposition and quick service to compliment my busy lifestyle.Look no further you won't be dissappionted and thank you again Lori.
Best Salon in SF .... Hands Down. – I've been going to my stylist, Jill, for several years, but this is the first time I've written a review. She always does an amazing job ... listening to my ideas and offering great suggestions when I want a change.
The salon is just off of Fillmore and it has the service level you'd expect in this neighborhood.
Couldn't be happier! – I'm new to SF and was scared to start my stylist search -- but I found Sublime and I'm in love! I have very stubborn, course hair and I am wary of finding new salons, as some stylists tend to get a bit scissor happy. I couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you Jill!!
Sublime has a very comfortable atmosphere, cool staff, great space. I was greeted very warmly and as soon as I changed I was sat down and asked what I wanted done. Jill delivered just what I asked for. I've received some great comments from my coworkers, and love my look. I was also happy with the price. What a find!
Definitely Recommend, A++
Terri's terrific – I've been searching for two years - since my arrival to San Francisco from NYC - for a great short haircut. After going through at least 7 others, I've found a "keeper". All I can say is Terri is fabulous! In fact, my sister will be visiting from Sacramento in a few weeks and can't wait to see Terri. I'm so happy I can finally end my search for a great haircut.
Terri at Sublime salon is a must see! – I recently went to see terri kemnitz at Sublime salon. It was no wonder why she came so highly recommended as she greeted me with a friendly smile. I immediately thought to myself, I might actually get a great haircut by someone cool and nice ( I guess you can get the best of both worlds at sublime salon!). Sure enough terri gave me a great short cut, I have to say I was very impressed with how much volume she was able to give me as most of the time my hair is so lifeless. The bonus was that she took the time to show me how to style it, so I could look fashionable regularly as opposed to leaving the salon looking good only to wake up with lifeless hair again. To be honest with the quality of service and style I received I'm surprised the cut was only $65.00! and as if hair wasn't enough she does makeup too. I know where i'll be going for all my beauty needs!!!
Best cut and color – Lori Dylan and Jill Quinn are the dynamic duo or should I say the sublime duo. I came to them and they transformed my frizzy, curly mop into a mane. Love it and them.
JILL is the BEST! – I have been getting my hair cut by Jill for a while and she consistently does an amazing job. My hair is difficult and I have had my share of bud cuts before, but I have always been happy with the haircut Jill has given me. The rest of the staff there seem like they are knowledgeable and friendly. I recently tried Rosa for color and loved the highlights she gave me. I highly recommend Sublime!
Solid Salon – Went to to Sublime for the first time in May 06 - Color by Rosa turned out beautiful & the meticulous cut by Terri is lovely. Atmosphere is very straight forward (clean, not fancy) but so is the service - stylists see you on time and there is no sense of urgency (rushing for next client). Charming and talented, the staff is what makes Sublime worth experiencing. Not to mention, reasonable : $65 Cut $65 Color = not bad for the city.
