Spoke & Weal Moves Its Mane Event to Jackson Square

Roomier digs mean more comfort and privacy for fans of the eco-friendly hair salon



Spoke & Weal — the California-bred, eco-conscious hair salon with a cult following — has outgrown its original San Francisco location and moved to a sleek new spot in Jackson Square. It’s one of eight technique-focused salons owned and operated by Jon Reyman and Christine Thompson.


Here, clients enjoy the signature dry haircuts and famed nontoxic custom color applications in the minimalist, 3,200-square-foot space, where 16 workstations are flooded with natural light pouring in from the original arched windows. “Salons have changed,” Thompson explains. “People used to come in, relax and hang out, but now they’re working and trying to get out as quickly as possible.”

The downstairs area — cozier and more private than the main floor — is out of view from street traffic and features a color bar area where clients can easily boot up a laptop while their hair is processing.

701 Sansome St., S.F., 415-800-7440.
