feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

Union Street the Center of Hair Salons in San Francisco

Wow, could there be any more salons on Union Street? Last counted, it was 19. That of course, is counting all, including the smallest salons with just one or two stylists along with the salons that have 10 or more stylists. Needless to say the competition is very stiff!

Red Union Hair Salon is very excited to be counted among the “best hair salon in San Francisco and even in the Bay Area”. How does that happen year after year?

As the owner, hair stylist and colorist I think it has largely to do with the stylists we hire… I look for superstars without attitude!

It has taken some years to get the formula just right. There are also 3 strong criteria that I discovered work best for Red Union Hair Salon:

Number one, of course is skill. The salon requires a minimum of 5 years of experience. You must be outstanding at haircuts and all color techniques, including skills from highlights, low-lights, tints, root boots, and advanced color techniques.

Union Streets and the Marina lends itself to have more blonds on the street than most neighborhoods and Red Union Hair Salon kicks ass at blonds.

We also have experts who do Extensions, Brazilian blow-outs, Wedding styles, Up-dos, braids, flat irons and any and all blow out techniques.

Second criteria is passion with vision. Have you ever been to a salon and you feel your stylist is burned out, not really into your hair or listening to you? At Red Union Hair Salon each stylist is passionate about creating a style that works for you by listening to your needs and creating a vision that is exciting to both of you.

Third criteria is attitude and pride with team spirit. Our stylists are warm and friendly to all clients that walk through the door. We help each other out to keep the salon running smoothly. Therefore the salon is spick and span because everyone takes pride in their environment and they want you to be comfortable and happy.

The decor of the salon is very boutique-y. Lots of live plants everywhere. Hardwood floors and lots of natural sun light located on the second floor on the the corner of Union and Buchanan Street. It is decorated to make you feel at home. Warm and cozy with leather furniture in the reception area. A rotating Art Gallery that changes by monthly to keep the look fresh and modern.
