Our city is crawling with talented types (chic sarong designers, artistic flower arrangers, we could go on). And it churns out top chefs like nobody’s business. But attracting celebrity hairstylists has been a challenge--until now.

Join us in rolling out the red carpet for Michelle Snyder, who has chopped the locks of Sienna Miller, Zooey Deschanel, Karen Elson and Vogue models galore. The San Franciscan recently returned to her native city to open Barrow salon after spending time sharpening her scissor skills at Bumble and Bumble in New York City (the SF salon is named after her fave Manhattan street).

Citing iconic Playboy pinups and bombshells like Brigitte Bardot as inspiration, Snyder’s coveted cuts result in that lush, naturally undone look usually reserved for movie stars. The raven-haired coiffeur works with 12 stylists and colorists to perform mane transformations, offering a range of cuts ($90 to $120), color ($85 to $170) and styling (starting at $60).

The salon itself has a Victorian-meets-modern vibe, from the bookshelf lined with fashion tomes to the Audubon bird prints in the bathroom--and champagne is served like it’s the Golden Globes. Don’t be surprised if somebody mistakes you for a celeb upon exiting.
