Best Hair Stylists - 2007
Wrapped around the corner of Haight and Steiner in the eclectic Lower Haight neighborhood sits Edo Salon with its creed to merge fashion, design, and art. The massive windows and perpetual afternoon sunlight provide an excellent setting for the constantly rotating art gallery, and perhaps it's this light that allow the stylists to see so clearly into the desires of their clients and the current fashion. ?ber-hip in a sort of nerdy-'80s-Mission-bluegrass-tattooed way, the ambiance and the stylists at Edo inspire trust: They know what's cool without being pretentious about it. The lovely talent also style for fashion shows, photo shoots, film, cabaret, and music videos. They specialize in everything from classic cuts to blue extensions to dreadlocks. The painstaking attention numerous stylists have given to one reporter's unruly curls (Snip. Pause. Examine. Repeat.) shows us that these are some of the few people in the city who know how to cut naturally curly hair in the shape it wants to be cut in. It is enough to inspire devotion in even the most fashion-cynical.
