Wash & Wear: Four SF Salons Specializing in Short Cuts

Liberating. Sexy. Invigorating. No, not some new fitness class or beverage. This is something truly transformational. Short hair cuts for women have always been the minority, but there is a resurgence – and just in time for spring. If you’ve never taken to the straight razor, now is as good a time as ever.

I’ll keep going. Versatile, feminine, edgy, soft, sporty, sophisticated. And that breeze on your neck carries with it the feeling of a lighter load, literally and emotionally. Blowouts are quicker and easier, a little product goes a long way and going shorter can rejuvenate thin hair. Less tangles and more time? Consider these SF short cut pros.

Samera at Samitra Salon

New on the New Market block, Samitra Salon is a referral-based hair and skincare salon owned and operated by sisters Samera and Meetra, hence the hybrid name. Samera does hair, Meetra is the skincare guru. With a Marketing degree and training at Bumble and Bumble, Toni and Guy and Goldwell Academy for Color, Samera specializes in “Graduated bobs and undercuts ala Victoria Beckham.” For men, George Clooney’s textured crop and Brad Pitt’s classic, contemporary cut serve as muses. Samera will custom your cut: “The decision is based on a client’s bone structure and the mood they’re in. I look at a person’s style, personality, and their skills to style their own hair when I’m not around to determine their cut.”
