There is no shortage of salons in downtown San Francisco, but finding the perfect one is a daunting task. A quick Google search yields countless results for cuts and color—all proclaiming to be the best in the city. But who really is the creme de la creme? Patrick Evan and his team of stylists including color guru Pam Genio-Bates are on the top of my list. His namesake salon has been holding court on Grant Street for the past 17 years.

The salon takes up three floors of the building and each floor is distinct. It started as one floor, but as Evan built a loyal following, he needed more space and expanded—growing the salon to take up two other floors. Today, Patrick Evan is home to over 30 top stylists, many of whom have specialized focuses like extensions, straightening, or keratin. Evan himself is an expert in the process of thermal reconditioning, a straightening technique that leaves hair smooth, soft, and damage-free. Evan has performed three treatments per day, four days a week, consistently since he opened his salon—that’s how in demand he is.
