A few months back I shared “How to deal with a Bad Haircut,” after receiving one of the worst haircuts I've had since seventh grade. Ever since I cut my hair short, I have had a hard time finding someone who could cut my locks precisely because of my wave pattern. That’s why I was so excited to link up for a collaboration with Joseph Cozza Salon in San Francisco. I was set up with Maritza who specializes with my kind of hair. Some of the most asked questions I receive on Instagram are about my hair. One question in particular is about salons I recommend in the area, so I wanted to take some time to elaborate on my experience. Although I received a complimentary haircut, this blog post is not sponsored and is based solely on my opinion.
Joseph Cozza is an elegant and modern salon located on Maiden Lane. I took the elevator upstairs and walked into a spacious room where several receptionists greeted me and promptly checked me in. I was led to a changing area where I was able to hang my coat and put on a smock in a private room. After I changed, I made my way to the waiting room and noticed that the salon provided beverages, such as infused water, while clients wait. Maritza met me shortly after I was seated and escorted me to her station, where she offered me a coffee to enjoy during my haircut.
Maritza took the time to listen to my past experiences, what I was looking for, and got to know my lifestyle. She even met my boyfriend and puppy who were there to help me with behind the scenes footage. During our time together, I learned that Maritza was similar to me when it came to styling her own hair. Although she is an experienced stylist, she prefers to wear her hair more naturally. I feel these qualities are hard to find in the beauty world and it made me feel like she understood and connected with me on a deeper level. To learn more about how I style my hair and how I keep my hair healthy watch the video I made on YouTube here.
I love how spacious the studio was and how accommodating the staff is with their clients. My stylist was flexible when she learned my puppy and boyfriend would be joining me for our time together. Most importantly, Maritza asked the right questions and was a good listener. Because of this, she provided me with an excellent haircut and styled my hair just the way I like it after a haircut- sleek straight. I definitely recommend this salon if you are looking for an up-scale experience in San Francisco.
