Balayage (the sexy French way to say dye that’s painted by hand) is the name of the game at this NoPa styling mecca, where true connoisseurs of color go for a head-turning ombre. The stylish decor—antique piano, worn-just-right leather chairs, an explosion of plants—is as effortlessly cool as founder Brian Belier, who spent years making people beautiful at other San Francisco hair hotspots before striking out on his own.
