Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Open seven days a week and available for coloring, cuts, highlights and makeovers.
don't do it... – it's basically as good as a supercuts - but with a cooler name. for one, you can't do a hack job on someone's head and then say "don't worry, it'll grow." A stylist at Panache recently told me this when she "trimmed" my bangs to about a centimeter long. She just started hacking away, it was terrifying. She said it was cute, like the girl in the movie Amelie. Um, yah, but I'm not Amelie! That's not how i wear my bangs. It seems like the stylists here just do their own thing and don't listen to the input of their clients.
Monster of a Hair Cut – I decided to try Panache after living in Berkeley for 2 years. I had always gone into San Francisco for my past haircuts, but decided to try them since they had 1 good review on citysearch and their prices were decent. I made an appointment with an expert stylist, but when I arrived, they sent me to a hair dresser that couldn't speak english, had less than a years experience, and her 2nd day at the salon! When she was done, I was appauld by what she had done! I don't consider my hair to be a stairway to hell, but that's what it looked like! They claimed it was my highlights. One of the hair dressers even had the nerve to say "it's just hair...it'll grow back", THE NERVE! Thanks these morons, I now have to go and get it cut again by a REAL PROFESSIONAL.
salon blunder – I wanted highlights all over my hair instead the hairstylist said that that wasn't "in," so I listened, the entire time she seamed to be bothered by me, like she didn't want to do my hair, the hairdressers next to me were so much nicer, I wish one of them would have done my hair. The job was okay and $120.00 later blown-off by the stylist, I left. I still gave her the benefit of the doubt. I returned to get my roots done and she passed me along to another stylist who was hard to understand, she did the job, but you could still see my roots! the girl at the front desk looked at me and then called upstairs to the manager he looked down and then she gave me the price of $80.00 I was upset, I hated my hair. These people don't even have set prices.
hate my cut!! – a friend had recommended panache to me and after reading the positive review i thought why not...bad idea...i had gone in with fairly long hair, about midway down my back w/ layers and wanted a few inches cut off so that it'd be about two or so inches below my shoulders...instead i have hair that is above my shoulders and looking something like the friends 'rachel' cut...and the stylist kept saying that it was cute, that'd it'd grow fast as she tryed to cover up her bad cut by blow drying it and crushing it flat on my head. i've had haircuts that were cheaper and looked a lot better. hopefully my hair will grow fast...
PANACHE REVIEW – Excellent place for hair! I love it. I have never gotten a bad hair cut from there. Stylists are nice and friendly and very competent!!! All my friends are in love with Panache. Highly recommended!!!!!
