"The community keeps us fresh"
Current owner, Grant Phillips, has been working at Mane since its' beginnings and has transformed it into a hip, modern and chic hair salon. He's got all of San Francisco buzzing, with clientele from all over the city. Now that must be some good service if folks are coming all the way from North Beach. Mane is a full service salon, providing haircuts to all hair types, weddings, event hair, and even make up! They also specialize in natural hair for African American men and women (chat up Willie!). Ultimately, Mane Attraction is a salon for everyone!
Currently, there are nine stylists, all giving a little something different to make the salon such a diverse and artistic place. There is such a great dynamic between the hairstylists that keep the salon's atmosphere fun and drama-free. As Grant says, "they all just fit. We are a good crew and always help one another out." The artwork on the walls were created by stylists, Brooke Hall andNancy Ahn. There is also artwork by illustrator, Zach O'Hora. These pieces truly show what an artistic bunch Mane's stylists are. What is particularly unique about Mane Attraction, is that they have a partnership with Bumble and Bumble, a luxurious hair product company out of New York City. One look into the salon, and you will see rows upon rows of Bumble and Bumble products- if you have been hunting for this stuff, look no further 'cause Mane is stocked! Through their partnership, Bumble and Bumble provides classes and workshops for the stylists, helping them achieve the latest hair trend or with perfecting the stylists' own style and skills. "We want to do hair right," andBumble and Bumble allows the stylists to be, "continually learning and always eager to change it up" with their techniques.
Having been in Cole Valley neighborhood for over twenty years, Mane Attraction has been the salon of Cole Valley offering full hair services to the San Francisco Bay Area with a spunky and hip twist.
