I was nervous looking for a new salon in San Francisco, however; in using "The Best of Citysearch", I found Posh, just down the street on Fillmore. The atmosphere is mellow, small salon with only a handful of chairs, however; the customer service was excellent and Kelly did an awesome job on my color.

I was surprised that I had appointments with two stylists, one for color and one for cut, however; it did not take any longer than usual and I was happy with the results.

I would recommend Kelly for your hair color!

Pros: Color specialists

Cons: separate colorist and stylist

I drove way across town on Saturday, only to be told that I have never made an appointment and if I want I can come back at the end of the day. I was furious since, I did make an appointment and I was there on time. Since my usual hairdresser was not there, I made an appointment with someone else, who they recommended. I wrote down name and time. The receptionist had a gall to lie straight to my face that I don't have an appointment. She did not even mention an appology for any confusion or a problem it has caused me. She made every attempt to make me feel like it was my fault and I should feel stupid. I will never ever go back there again. There are hundreds of salons out there and I am sure that they would love to get my business.

Pros: None

If you could see my hair now, you would come here to Sophie. Thanks to Sophie I am starting out the new year on a very good foot! I am so happy with my haircut! She listened to everything I said first, then somehow made it all make sense! I've never been this happy with my hair!

I've been going to Posh Salon and seeing Kelly for color a little over a year now. Kelly is an amazing colorist not only because she has an artistic eye, but she is realistic, creative, and honest in matching a style to your taste or personal style. On top of this, she has great fashion forward ideas if you're interested in changing it up. I've never had so many compliments or felt so confident with my hair color before. To top that, she's much more quick and efficient than most top-notch colorists I've seen in the past. She definitely has the magic touch!

I have been going to Kelly for color over the past year, and I just love her. She does a fabulous job and I really enjoy the feel of Posh salon. In the time Kelly has been working with my hair, I have received so many compliments on both the color and condition. Kelly & Posh are the best! So glad I found them!

Bravo to Bethany and her creative team at Posh. They make beauty happen and are brilliant at their craft...end results being natural and lasting, my dream come true.

Pros: Every minute is worth it at Posh for the best

Cons: Wish they were open 24/7

I am a hairstylists worst nightmare. I am a blonde and very very fussy. I have been going to see Katie now for about a year and she has changed my brassy locks into healthy beautiful shiny hair. She tells me exactly how it is and I have great respect for her opinion and expertise. If you are struggling to find a colorist...I highly recommend you go see Katie at Posh salon!!! Might i add-She also works early morning and late nights.

Thank you, thank you, to Bethany, the owner of Posh salon. She gave a multitude of apologies for not getting back to me; that she had not received any messages from me. She had spoken with Arthur, the stylist, and thought he had taken care of my refund. The situation was just one misunderstanding after another.

After seeing my review on Yelp, she called right away to explain what had happened on her end and to offer to make it right. She offered me a full refund of my first haircut or a haircut with her at her next available appointment. I happily accepted the cut from her! She did a WONDERFUL job fixing my hair!

Thank you Bethany and Posh Salon. I will most definately continue to go to this salon and to encourage others too as well.

I am so sad to post this review but I really gave Posh a chance... I've been going to the salon for about three years and have seen Arthur for 2 cuts before this last one. He's always done a great job and I've given him and the salon multiple referrals - a great cut is like a walking billboard!

This last appointment was terrible from the start - Arthur kept looking at his watch and leaving to answer his cell phone. After he rushed through the "cut" I said that it wasn't what we talked about, that I wanted more layers. He said he didn't have time to fix it then and to make a follow-up as I was practically shoved out the door. When I came in for the corrective cut I was treated terribly by him, it was as if I was being manipulated into thinking the cut was my fault. What's more he tried to charge me for a second cut. In addition to being made to feel like I was to blame, with an almost vengeful attitude he gave me the layers I "asked for" and left me with terribly hacked and uneven layers. Objectively a bad cut.

After being treated so insultingly I felt too awkward to confront Arthur again for fear of what he would do next to my hair so I called to talk to the owner, Bethany. She too was un-empathetic and rude when I requested a refund. To close our call she said she would get back to me shortly once she spoke to Arthur. That was 3 weeks ago and I have followed-up numerous times.

Again, I hate that this negative experience happened, but as a loyal customer I gave them every opportunity to make it right. A poor cut can happen, but Bethany had the opportunity to show professionalism and pride in her business to keep me as a client. Instead, my references have become negative word-of-mouth and I will never go back.

I took a chance by chosing a colorist here on citisearch based on reviews, and I decided to see Katie. I was very nervous because my hair was dyed black with permanent color and I wanted to be a mixture of brown and blonde again. I am also growing my hair out from a short a-line so did not want my hair to be fryed either- of course. She explained to me that it may take a few appointments before i reach my goal in order to sustain the health of my hair. She did not promise me exactly what i wanted and just bleach the heck out of it, but what she did is amazing (beautiful Hi-lites on my whole head, and lightened my base) My hair is still very healthy, and is now a very dimentional brown shade- gorgeous and much better than the black. Her foil placement was perfect and she really took her time with me. I will be refering others!!!

Pros: Great colorist, knows her stuff

Cons: Street parking, but worth the hassle

.

Go to Kelly seriously! She is awesome. I've been to a bunch of crappy colorist in San Francisco, after leaving my girl in NYC. I was so frustrated until I started coming here. I've seen her for a few months and just love my color.

Pros: best colorist around

Cons: parking!!

Posh hosts the best colorist in SF. Regardless of what you are trying to achieve Katie will not only listen to your ideas, thoughts and interest but she will also be honest with you as to what will work best. If you've got dark hair and wanna go light WITHOUT gross brassy-nesss or if your looking for something a little different not too dramatic Katie is the best. She can color as natural as you like or as drasticly different without any mishap. I searched and tested lots. She got extensive education in color technique that makes it all possible.
Thanks Katie for helping us LOOK GREAT!

Pros: BEST COLOR, ALWAYS GREAT EVERY TIME

I've been seeing Arthur for years because he has an amazing talent. He's a tentative listener, has great ideas, and is expert with the scissors. I always leave my appointments with him feeling great. I highly recommend Arthur if you're looking for a new stylist, someone who will give you a consistent cut every time, or someone who will help you make a big change if that's what you need. I can't count how many times I've been stopped on the street and asked, "Who does your hair?"

Arthur did wonders with my hair this week. I have wavy, sometimes unmanagable hair and have a devil of a time finding someone who knows how to cut it properly. I can also be very picky but he listened well to all of my wishes and my haircut turned out great!! I am very pleased and highly suggest him.

Jamie's been doing my hair for the last three years. She completely changed the texture of my hair by simply 'cutting' it right. I have very straight - fine hair which was damaged previously by razors and careless stylists. Jamie helped me re-hab and did an awesome up-do for my wedding last September as well. She's a great listener and I'm always happy after a visit to her salon. I highly recommend her for cut, color and up-do!!!

I love my Highlights that Kelly did. They came out blended and soft, perfect for my skin tone and she had a lot of general knowledge about Hair. She gave me tips on how to keep my hair nice and recommended some awesome shampoo. I'm so glad I found someone I could trust.

I have also been going to see Katie at Posh for my color. I moved to San Francisco from New York last February and a friend reccommended i see her. She has true expertise in color and we always have a very pleasant conversation. As the seasons have changed shes recommended suble changes that have really accented my skintone. Check her out..parking can be a little bit tough but she often works late so that makes it easier.

I made my first trip to Posh a few months ago and got a set of highlights from Katie. I showed Katie a picture of the color I wanted and she matched it almost exactly. The reason I'm only commenting now is because I can't believe that color can "age" this well. Instead of getting dull looking, it is as strawberry blonde as when I got it done the first time. Katie was super nice and made all sorts of recommendations about things to do in the city. The only slightly negative comment I can make is that the service seemed a bit rushed, especially my haircut. Kind of ship 'em in ship 'em out. Although if you have a busy schedule this would be a plus for you.

I am a magazine editor and I got a great tip to go to Posh. I normally don't write on a site like this, but I had such a great experience that I thought I would put in a good word and share it with others. I was lucky enough to get an appointment with the owner even though I did not have a referral ( which apparently she does not normally take clients without a referral). It was the most fantastic haircut/experience I have ever had at a salon. The salon does not feel pretentious and uptight like others I have been to and the owner was really down to earth and helped me through all my insecurities about having my haircut. The result was the best haircut I have ever had and three weeks later I am still loving it! Highly recommended!

I didn't like this salon. They cancelled my appointment an hour before the scheduled time to take care of a 'freaked out customer' instead. The receptionist doesn't even seem to care or feel sorry when she told me not to come. Can't trust them. period.

I'm not a hair color expert, but you don't have to be to get amazing color here. I saw Kelly after seeing many great reviews on her. The hair color I got was perfect!! I have blonde hair and I always am trying to get the perfect highlights, and finally I have. I loved how nice she was and we also had the best conversation while she worked. I used to sit for hours for my hair to be done, but she was done so quickly, the time just flew by. I also received the best blowdry. Worth every penny, Kelly I'll be back.

I have been going to Posh for almost a year now and have been seeing Katie. She is amazing with color and i wanted to pass this on to anyone looking for a colorist. She is consistent and always is on time. She is well educated and this is seen in her work. She always asks me if i like what she did the previous time and asks if theres anything id like to change. This makes me feel very comfortable and open. I get sooo many complments on my hair! Check her out I am positive you wont regret it!!

I went to Posh for the first time and they set me up with a stylist named Jamie. She is FANTASTIC! I got the best haircut I've ever had. I moved here from NY and thought it would be hard to find something that compares, but she was even better than my stylist back there! I couldn't believe it! I love it!!

I read some reviews about Posh and decided to try it. I'm so happy I went to see Kelly for color. She TOTALLY transformed my hair. I thought my hair just couldn't look good, but she was so positive about what she could do for me and I'm so glad I listened. I felt amazing after leaving there, my hair has never looked that good. I felt like the hair gods were finally smiling on me. My hair is finally what I wanted it to be and I owe it all to Kelly. Go see her it's worth it.

I just had my first hair cut with Rick at Posh and he is amazing. I never once felt like he was pushing me into a style not for me. I have course dry curly hair. He took his time, and explained everything he was going to do. He is wonderful! I have finally found a stylist I can trust, and who truly understands what he is doing. The cut is exactly what I was looking for. The entire staff at the salon was polite and courtesous. Even when I showed up early and sat to observe.

I was refered to see Wendy for thermal straightening. My hair is so shiny silky after the straightening. I save alot time in styling my hair. I love my new hair. I'm hooked on this. And I will go back to do touch up in a couple months. Its worth every penny!

I've been getting haircuts from Arthur for a while and I think he gives a GREAT cut, he listens, he takes his time to give you what you want. I go out of my way to get my hair cut by him.
I also love Kelly. She's a wonderful colorist and just an artful, cool person. I don't think you can go wrong with these two and Posh!

Lori is the best colorist in the city! I've tried most of the big names, but no one compares to her. After my hair was completely ruined by a bad color job, she did a phenomenal job transforming it from the horrible, fried mess that it was into healthy, beautifully highlighted hair. At least one person each week asks me who does my hair, and that's the best feedback in the world!

Arthur gave me a decent haircut at Posh, so I decided to try it again.

I had an appointment at 6pm and showed up at 6:05pm (reasonable given how difficult it is to park). The host woman said that my appointment was at 5:45pm, which was a blatant lie and I have voicemail confirmation of a 6pm appointment still saved on my phone. Apparently Arthur had left for a bit.

He returned and said he was not doing any more appointments that day. This is unacceptable, especially with me standing right there. I had left work early and driven an hour to the city to make this appointment.

If I was running the salon, he would have been reprimanded and potentially fired on the spot no matter how good a hairstylist they are.

I normally do not complain about bad service, but this was unacceptable and I had to take the time to sign up to citysearch in order to write this review - I will sign up for yelp and others to warn people.

I will never return to Posh and I caution anyone who makes an appointment to triple check that Arthur actually plans to keep the appointment (perhaps ask to speak with him personally before showing up).

He returned and said he was not doing any more appointments that day. This is unacceptable, especially with me standing right there. I had left work early and driven an hour to the city to make this appointment.

If I was running the salon, he would have been reprimanded and potentially fired on the spot no matter how good a hairstylist they are.

I normally do not complain about bad service, but this was unacceptable and I had to take the time to sign up to citysearch in order to write this review - I will sign up for yelp and others to warn people.

I will never return to Posh and I caution anyone who makes an appointment to triple check that Arthur actually plans to keep the appointment (perhaps ask to speak with him personally before showing up).

Pros: Decent haircut.

Cons: Appointments not kept. Arthur believes it is optional to stick to an appointment.

I have frizzy curly hair and got it straightened at Posh by Wendy. I must admit the process is quite long but I am sooo happy with the results. I first had a consultation and discussed everything over. She did a great job and was very direct with me. Thanks Wendy, I love my hair!!! Check out Posh...its a really hip low key plave on upper fillmore. Although i just had my hair straightened, the staff all seemed real friendly and talented.

Pros: the 22 drops you right in front

Not only does this salon have a great atmosphere and a friendly enviroment, they have one of the best stylists i have ever been to in all my 22 years of getting my hair done. Her name is Katie and boy is she GOOD!!! I first went to Katie wanting my hair blonde , I had been to several stylists in the past that just could not give me the platinum blonde I wanted it always came out so brassy . I went to katie and haven't stoped because of the beautiful platinum blonde hair I have today . There is almost never a day where someone doesnt ask me who does my hair and tells me how beautiful it is. So when i say this is a great salon and Katie is GREAT I mean that 100 % THANKS POSH!!!!!

I visited with Katie the other day to discuss my hair as it is such a mess for me and I want to look my best for my cliants. I am light complextion but would like to change my color. Katie was such a wonderful person to meet and talk with. Katie had some wonderful ideas which I must dwell on. In today's fast pace world, to find a person like Katie who will hear your concerns without just giving you an "off the shelf answer" is unusual. I will be getting back in contact with Katie to discuss my new color in a very near future. Thank you Katie

Pros: katie O'Hara

I visited Posh Salon for the first time about two months ago. I had my color done with Katie. My first impression of her was warm and friendly. She sat me down and asked me where i wanted to go with my hair. We discussed the options and she made her reccomendation. She had a very confident demenor and her contact was very direct and informative. She explained the pros and cons of our decision and i have been very happy with the results. I have very unruley hair and she recognized this and did not promise me the world. I was happy to hear her honestly and she definately overachieved my expectations. I am returning to the salon this week and i cant wait to see what she has in plan for me!

If you need a haircut, there is no one better that Rick. He is the crem de la crem of hairstylists. His technique is the best I have ever seen and his knowledge base is incredible. You'd think that would make him intimidating - but, no. He's so sweet and fun - one of the best conversationalists I've ever met. I've been seeing him for over 2 years now and I will NEVER go to anyone else. Oh yeah - and he's cut my hair both long and short, so he's versatile. I even trusted him enough to let him take 10 inches off and give me a sassy new 'do and it's my favorite haircut to date! Thanks Posh and thanks Rick!!

I was recommed to see Wendy for thermal straightening. I got these frizz unrully hair for years and don't know how to style it. I had to spend an hour to make it look good. Wendy spent 4 hours on my hair and it turned out straight and shiny. And she also gave me a nice haircut . I feel like a totally new person now. I love my hair! Thanks Wendy! I will see you soon!

Having just moved to SF, my friendly apartment neighbor recommended Pamela at Posh Salon on Fillmore Street, SF. I was a few minutes late for my appointment but, she was very understanding of my dilemna (work) and after settling down and talking with Pamela, shesuggested a new color which I really love!! I am a new, happy customer with Pamela! I love her humor also!!

Parking can be a struggle but, so worth it!

Posh is a neighborhood staple that you can count on for always providing a fantastic haircut. I started going here when I moved to SF after college. After a couple of years I moved to New York City. Upon moving back to San Francisco last year, I returned to my favorite hair salon and guess what? I found a new stylist, Bethany, who is the best and left the salon with a new and fabulous hairdo. Even my picky and overly critical friends approved. Got to love a place that grows with you!!!!!

I got a recommendation from my boss to see Kelly at Posh. I always look at her hair at work and I finally I asked her about it. Kelly was so cool to talk to and was so fast! I'm used to sitting for 3 hours for color and she had me out of there in 1 1/2. Color, shampoo, and blowdry, and the color was stunning! I will highly recommend her, she is a super colorist.

I recently moved to San Francisco and have been very hesitant to get my color done. A co worker of mine reccomended me to go see Katie at Posh Salon. So about a week ago i did and I am very pleased with the outcome. She suggested a few different hues of blonde and took the health of my hair into consideration. I have never been this satisfied and received so many compliments. I am confident that she is very knowledgable in her craft and would reccommend her to anyone. The salon is also very welcoming and professional.

I had been getting thermal straightening for years in LA. I just recently moved to the city and tried to find someone to do a touchup for me. Luckily I found Wendy from city search. She did a amazing job on my hair just like I get it done in LA. I will definitely go back to see her !

I love Lori! She is absolutely amazing. She always has great ideas of what would look best for me. I only trust Lori with my color. She is fun, bubbly and always has a smile on her face. I highly recommend Lori if you are searching for a colorist. You will always look amazing after a visit in this salon!

Wow, wow, wow!!! I'm extremely thrilled to have found this salon. I was going to another SF salon for three years, the color was good, but the hair cuts mediocre. Then, the colorist at my salon resigned, so I ventured the internet and read the reviews about Posh. I was hoping to find a new place to call "home" for color and cuts.

I've seen Rich twice for haircuts. He listens to how you like your hair and what you do/don't like about it. I came to him after having a bad cut; too many short layers and very textured. I have thin hair; too much texture makes my hair look thinnner!! :) He also looks at your face shape and suggests how he will cut your hair to be most flattering. Anyway, with my first haircut, Rick took just a little off the length so my hair wouldn't be too short. He evened the front and back and blended all of my hair together very nicely. Truly, I was amazed! My thin hair looked fuller, styled beautifully, and was exactly what I wanted. I can only say the second haircut/trim was just as awesome and I know there is more to come! By the way, he also has a great personality and fun to chat with.

If you want a superb cut - see Rick. I'm seeing Lori next for color and highlights and know I will be equally amazed. I hear she has 15 plus years experience and is a whiz at color.

PS. Finding parking can be a chore, since this area has lots of restaurants and shops. Arrive to the area 15-30 minutes before your appointment to find parking.

I got a whack job here. "Orlando" was recommended to me, but he gave me a 2-layer haircut--square and unshaped on the bottom half (the hair just hangs). Then there are some layers, but they are not precision cut. He cut a tapered line too deep into the hair line, so it sits on top of the non-integrated longer square layer. It will take a year to grow out. I was unhappy at the time, and started asking him what more he might do-he said just what I've done. He clearly was done, and he didn't care whether I was happy with it or not. I think the bottom layer is blunt cut, so it is too heavy and thick and has no shape and has a square profile. The bit about celebrity stylists running between movie and fashion assignments must be a joke. I left no only unhappy with the cut, but the styling was not "finished." I do as good or better dry /styling at home. A decent stylist sends me out with a polished shiny sleek look , with no flyaways, that I can never achieve at home. Now have to try to find someone to do a fix. Very annoying.

I went to POSH after reading reviews here...I have never had such a great Hair experience in my life. I am a mid-aged -professional in Management. I have always hated my hair. It is thin and hard to make it look professional. When I went in there, I had just experienced a terrible loss of my hair due to nutritional issues, so it was worse than usual. Orlando is a true hair guru. He took my terrible mess and cut it beautifully. It didn't even look like me any more (Thank Heaven and Orlando!!). I then scheduled an appt with Lori for the color. FANTASTIC!!! I even had someone ask me if I had had a face lift! (no, I hadn't!). I have more compliments on my hair.
Last week I was in New York and had gone swimming. The only dryer was a wall dryer for hands. I popped my head under the dryer, and ran my hands through it, and no problem.
POSH has my business. I have never, never liked my hair. Now I LOVE it!!!!

Cons: Parking is a terror! Bring lots of change and come early.

I love this cute salon. Read the reviews online and decided to check it out. I saw Kelly for color and Orlando for a cut, and I LOVE MY HAIR. They are so googd at listening and making sure you got what you wanted. I love my blonde highlights and side swept bangs. They were so fun to talk to and the atmosphere was relaxing. Go here! Its totally worth it.

I went to Posh for a cut and color and was really impressed. I saw Katie for Color and Bethany for cut. I went in not exactly knowing what I wanted but what I really appreciated was both of them took the time to figure out what would look good on me and what I would feel comfortable with! I loved the results and three weeks later I am still looking great!

I decided to try Posh because of all the positive reviews found here on city search. I had a stylist in Ohio that I loved (and still do) but flying 2000 miles is a but pricey and inconvenient for great hair. I called ahead and mentioned that I have been trying new salons and having a lot of trouble finding one that provide a natural blond highlight - low light as I am accustomed. I went in for a consultation and explained in details the problems I have experienced. I will say that there were some bad things going on when I got there. In an effort to reduce the damage, I have been 'trying' new stylist by having the hair framing my face done only. The goal was that if they could match the last good color I had (which was on the rest of my head save roots) that I would commit to the whole head. Kelly really tried and was very sweet but the damage she did has left me with a large RED line across my head that the next two stylists I have seen have been unable to purge.

The only reason the salon is getting a 2 is the cut was pretty good. The people were nice although I think the reception needs to be replaced. I told her I had problem hair and needed an experienced colorist. She gave me a recent cosmetology grad. Like I said Kelly was very sweet and was concerned when it was obvious the project had gone horribly wrong. She offered to correct it but it is my firm belief if she couldn't get it right the first time, there is no way it will happen later. I spent many days crying over this hair fiasco and would never recommend getting color here to a friend or even an enemy. The salon is memorable and it seems I will have harsh red streaks for the next several years as a memento of my experience.

I recently received a thermal straightening treatment as a gift from my mom for christmas. I was referred to Wendy at Posh by several friends and booked the treatment with Wendy after a consultation. I am a college student that does not have a lot of time to work on my hair daily since it was kind of frizzy.

It came out beautiful and I am extremely happy with the results!

I've tried many different salons all over SF during the past 6 years, most based on reviews from citysearch, to find a colorist to highlight my blonde hair. Recently I bit the bullet and paid top dollar for Jason Moran at Di Pietro Todd on Post Street (love him but too pricey to keep going to). And then I found Kelly. Trained at Di Pietro, she is an expert. And you cannot beat her prices for the quality of product. She has given me the best highlights that I've ever had! I am VERY happy with her.
