Great people – Bruno Compin has been doing my hair for years and has helped me transform from frump with bad fashion sense to hipster chick with hair to die for...
Festoon Is Great!! – I've been going to Festoon for the last three years. I moved from another state and it was recommended to me by some friends. My stylist, Bruno, is the best. He does a great job at styling, coloring and he always has great ideas for new styles. I highly recommend this salon and BRUNO!
Bruno is the best! – I have been going to Festoon for over 3 years for highlight/cut and my hair has never looked better. I have gone to Bruno for over a year and I get so many compliments on my hair, many times from total strangers! He is talented, knowledgeable and has a great personality to boot. The one downside is that the staff is not always as "on the ball" as the sylists. I recommend paying for your services when you are waiting for your color to finish so you don't have to wait forever when you are done.
Bruno The Miracle Worker – When in SF I visit Festoon solely for Bruno Compin's magic. I have been to some of the best salons in NYC, LA and SF but no one works miracles like Bruno. I always receive the perfect cut for my face shape, lifestyle, event, etc. It is obvious he puts his heart and soul into his work. I highly recommend booking an appointment with him - it is worth the wait.
Bruno is the best – I started going to Festoon salon 6 years ago and never looked back! I've had a few stylists, but discovered Bruno a couple years ago and have stuck with him since. I even used to carry around his business cards with me because I kept getting asked by people who cut my hair. The atmosphere is great--I always walk out of there feeling sexy! Definitely recommended.
Bruno rocks! – I've been getting my hair highlighted by Bruno for about two years now. He is very knowledgeable and very good at what he does. I think the price is right too ($100). One of the ONLY bad things about Festoon salon is that every time I have an assistant wash/blow-dry/style my hair after my highlights - I never like it. They need to learn how to section hair off when you dry it and what products to use. Overall I would highly recommend Festoon Salon and especially Bruno.
Beware of hair model program – I had a very bad experience with an advanced apprentice cutting my hair. Not only she seemed not knowing what she was doing and she cut my hair much shorter than we originally agreed upon but she wasted more than 2 and 1/2 hours of my time to produce a disastrous haircut. I will have to go somewhere else to get my hair fixed, as it is asymmetric and shapeless. They charge $25 for a haircut done by advanced students, what is relatively cheap but if you subsequently have to visit another salon to get the hair fixed, than it is just a waste of money. Even more importantly, senior stylists-teachers who supervised student's work were very RUDE and nonprofessional. In the past, I had a very good experience with advanced training programs at TONY&GUYS ACADEMY. After this experience with the staff of the salon, I will never come back!!!
User review by indridgoe – I also read great reviews on citysearch about festoon and was disappointed with my cut and color. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was decent, just the cut and color was below average... still in search of a good salon...
I won't go back. Sorry!"
Industrial Designer – This place makes you feel good and look smart. great staff adn great atmosphere. Its impossible to get a bad haircut here.
The Best! – I have been to several high end salons and never as truly happy with my hair as I am now that I go to Festoon! The staff are kind, fun, AND talented. Thank God for good hair days thanks to Festoon!
