Hair Play - San Francisco, California, United States
Marty @ HairPlay and Joe Hamer Academy

Jan 08, 2011 - I have a typical curly story: nobody in my family knew how to manage my 3a hair, so they'd brush my curls and frizz them out. I learned in high school not to do that, but my hair was cut by people who also disliked my hair and had no idea how to manage curls, so I went through life with a permanent case of triangle head. Enter Marty. Marty is a quiet person and curl genius. He has been doing nothing but styling hair in the city for 14 years (he must have started when he was fifteen, because he doesn't look that old). Since he first cut my hair four years ago, I have not let anyone else touch it. I have followed him to another salon and back again. I never had such beautiful cuts before. They really show off the curls' shape, and yet still manage any style I want and grow out looking great the whole time. I used to have hair that I never wore down: now I have wash and wear hair. And I only have to cut my hair once or twice a year. I am getting married this year, and I know I could just roll out of bed, shower, and have my hair wedding-ready with minimal effort. In fact, I might do it! Basically, my hair's life is divided into BM and AM: Before Marty and After Marty. If you are a curly girl in the SF Bay Area, you have to see what I'm talking about. At the end of your haircut, ask him to style your hair "in ringlets". He'll send home with beautiful spiral curls.

Alcheme - San Francisco, California, United States

Jan 19, 2010 - Marty has been cutting my hair for three years, ever since I moved to the Bay Area. I first went to him at Hair Play, because that salon was recommended on this site. I have since followed him to Alcheme. I can honestly say that every time Marty cuts my hair, it is curly like crazy and I get no end of compliments. He knows his stuff!
