Haute Secret: Samera Habib

Samera Habib is one half of the sister team who co-owns Samitra Salon, one of SF’s most exclusive salons offering a full range of personalized care in a boutique setting.

With 20 year of experience in the industry, the Bay Area native opened the salon at the New Market (better known as Twitter headquarters) with her sister, Meetra.  The sisters, who work only on a referral only and by appointment basis, service some of San Francisco’s most elite clientele.

Samera paused from her busy day to share some of her hautest secrets – her picks for the hottest locations in San Francisco.
