I came across Marlon through a friend, who told me that she was very pleased with his work and that he also has worked with celebrities. She highly recommended him. In addition, I must mention that I am very particular about my hair and have been known to travel great distances for the very best, so I made my appointment with Marlon. Much too my surprise, I absolutely LOVE my new hair cut and color! I have recv'd many compliments on my hair since my last visit with Marlon.
Thank you Marlon for helping me look my very best! I am your biggest fan for life! You are so worth the long drive from Lake Tahoe to San Francisco! I look forward to my next appointment.

Cover Girl Hair
My hair is naturally almost black and my hair is naturally frizzy. As I am getting older I want my hair blonder as that makes me look younger. Very few stylist can take dark hair and make it blonde without going red. I showed up with messed up brassy hair and walked out with blonde fit to be on the cover of Vogue. Marlon is amazing with color. He also gave me a fabulous cut.
The next visit the blonde was even better and Marlon did a Brazilian Blowout, frizz is gone. and my hair is now practically wash and go. It looks great and my life is so much easier. I don't have to spend 45 minutes drying it. The process was painless.
Marlon is fabulous. He listens. He is attentive. I could see the years of experience and training combined with his natural talent in the results.
Thank you Marlon. You are the best.

This is my first City Search posting. I am so thrilled with my hair results that I have to post it.
Let me start by saying that Marlon is the best!
For years I have been looking for a good hair stylist and let me tell you..it has been a very hard job. But now my search is over. I found him. yes ""Marlon""
I walked into the salon with my freeze, horrible colored hair. My previous stylist had damaged my hair to a point that it was breaking off. I am Latina and have lots of red pigmentation on my hair, if the stylist doesn't use the correct colors my hair turns orange. My hair was brassy orange with many tones of yellow washed off highlights. I thought it was going to take a miracle to fix my hair.
Marlon colored my hair with beautiful highlights, cut and did the Brazilian Blowout.
I was so impressed with the beautiful color and yes the freeze was gone.I walked out of the salon looking like a celebrity.
My hair is amazingly soft, also easy to style.
I have received many compliments on my hair.
Marlon you ROCK! too bad I can't put 10 STARS you deserve them.

I had my Brazilian Keratin Treatment from Marlon Ramos few weeks ago and I am amazed with the result. I am Brazilian girl with a very curly hair. I have had other Brazilian Keratin before but, it didn’t have the same smooth and straight. I wasted so much money until I found him over the internet. Only now I am happy with my hair. I got so many compliments from my friends, my boss… Marlon Ramos is the best! By the way, his price is pretty reasonable.

Marlon ""Scissorhands"" is the most talented, artful and professional hairdresser my hair has ever been touched by.. I can honestly say this guy is capable of miracles because he transformed me into an entire different person after one haircut and highlights. Marlon is in tune with your personality, he is sensitive to your individuality and he keeps it real too. He truly is a great artist capable of bringing out the best look you can have, boosting your confidence and making you feel like a ""million bucks"". I agree with all the reviews I've read so far about him, my hair is sophisticated, fun and manageable. I receive compliments not only on my hair but also on my new improved attitude! Yeah, who could think a haircut and the perfect haircolor could make such a difference? Let me tell you: they do! Highly recommended, Marlon you're the best!

I got Brazilian blowout treatment from Marlon 2-3 weeks ago and was thrilled to see the results. My hair was in a big mess after getting 3 rebonding treatments. Now my hair is smooth, shiny and lustrous..all thanks to Marlon! I will be back soon to get a hair-cut.

I just love him to death! He is extremely good at what he does. Infact he is the best! I have been a client for a long while and just tried the Keratin blowout and my hair feels amazing. It's extremely soft, silky, and manageable. He did a wonderful job. He was very quick with the process because he always puts in a 100%. I always get out of there feeling like a million bucks. He is my go to guy for haircut, color, highlights, and keratin. Plus he is someone with a very warm personality :)
Would highly highly recommend Marlon!

I searched online and found Marlon. I was in desperate need of a haircut. I was only in SF for the week and figured it would be impossible to get in to have a good haircut. When I called, he answered and was able to fit me in that same day! I was so relieved! I have been trying to grow my hair out for some time now and it is in that awkward stage. My hair hangs very heavy and was lacking any shape or style. When I got to the Salon he got me in right on time. He was able to take a quick look at my hair with my only request being that I didn't want to lose length, but really desired some shaping. He listened and took charge with the scissors. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and I didn't get that feeling that he was rushing - even though I was his last ""squeezed"" in appointment for the day. I could tell even before the blow dry that it was already a lot better. Once he finished the blow dry I was amazed at how healthy and bouncy my hair looked! He gave me such a cute cut and style - it was fun and flirty. I loved it! My husband was impressed as he usually can never tell when I have had my haircut! LOL! I highly recommend him. I am just so sad I don't live in or near SF. He really does a fantastic job! Probably the best hair cut I have EVER had!

I was trying to grow out my hair when I met Marlon . I allowed Marlon the liberty to choose my cut and to recommend the color for my hair. Three months later, I'm still receiving praise for my awesome hairstyle. It takes a real master to understand an individual's hair and Marlon is someone whom I trust to exceed my expectations. He's friendly and a cute one, too! It is a pleasure to know him. I highly recommend Marlon Ramos to everyone.

First I must say Marlon is so warm, personable, and funny to work with. He will make you laugh while working on your hair time will just fly by.
Now about the treatment which I now refer to as sanity saver. My hair is straight in parts while curly in others. Not to mention it is fine but there is a lot of it so it looks thick. This has been a life saver because now I can actually manage my hair. it is completely straight out of the shower all I have to do is wash, comb and go. If I wanted to blow dry it I could but it's not required. Secondly it finally looks healthy and there is no more frizz. It looks polished every day. I would recommend this to everyone especially if you are hair impaired like I am.

I'm not the type of person to write a review but after I left Marlon I was extremely happy and figured people would love to know my experience. I am Afghan so my hair is my life and recently had gone to a hairstylist who dyed and ruined what people called my beautiful hair. I was referred to Marlon through my sister whos hair was amazing after she left him, so I figured why not. He totally felt sorry for me and my hair so he promised he'd fix it and he kept his word. That was my first visit. My next visit I wanted a cut and to retouch my hair. Believe it or not.. he cut and dyed my hair exactly like i told him i wanted it, its like he saw the exact picture I had in my head. I have long hair also, so if your scared someone's going to chop your hair off, you won't have to worry with Marlon, hes extra careful and it doesn't hurt that he's also fun to look at ;). Marlon has definitely made himself a new regular.

I have been to soo many salons in this city and never found anyone who really knew what they were doing. Marlon Ramos is so talented and my hair, my most recognizable feature, is finally in good hands! Wish I found him earlier...all those years of bad gray coverage and brassy dry results...no more! He also happens to be so much fun to be around...:) . The best Haircut!

I love Marlon!! From the first appointment I knew this was a relationship that was going to last, although he is very busy , comes with all sorts of cridentials in the hair business, he is not pretentious in the least. When I started with Marlon, my hair was very blonde over processed and extremely fragile. I was experiencing thinning due to the breakage I was having from my previous stylist overlaping the bleach applications that were way to frequent. Marlon has corrected all that. He is so careful when he does my highlights, he gets me to a beautiful blonde color without damaging my hair. Because he cares so much. He is so talented in everything he does from color to cuts it's all top knotch, well worth the 75 miles each way I drive to see him,

I recently moved from Chicago to San Francisco and needed to establish my essential contacts. I did some research and asked some friends and it resulted in Marlon Ramos."" When I called the salon, I was disappointed (and happy for Marlon) to hear that Marlon was away celebrating his birthday, so I left a message. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a phone call back; directly from Marlon. He wasn't able to take me right away, so I scheduled a few weeks out. When I arrived at the salon, he asked me what I was trying to achieve. After listening to my needs, I decided (or we) to get the Keratin treatment, color and cut. Everything was fabulous-I feel like a new person. Marlon's expertise is second to none in his field. It was worth the wait. I would recommend that you go see Marlon. It will change you. Thank you Marlon.

I've been a devotee of Marlon's since he first did a Japanese Yuko straightening process on my hair almost 5 years ago. My hair is long and very wavy and course. It can look either catwalk enviable, or Ugly Betty-esque, depending on how well my stylist understands its cowlicks and tendencies toward frizz. As a result, I am extremely discerning and picky when it comes to letting people touch my hair. Over time I grew tired of only having one option (stick straight) from the Yuko treatment, so Marlon started doing the Brazilian Keratin treatment which I love! My hair is now smooth, but still has beautiful body and can hold waves if I want to curl it. If I air-dry it, it is miraculously both smooth and lightly textured. If I decide to go extra straight and sleek by blow-drying, it takes one fifth the amount of time it used to and I don't need to brush while blowing it out anymore. As a result of his deep understanding and skill in using the Keratin treatment, each time we reapply, (around every 6 months), my hair becomes MORE healthy and soft. Marlon's attention to detail, focus and care while doing both the Yuko and Brazilian Keratin treatments is impressive. I trust him completely and cannot recommend him highly enough. Plus he's professional, funny, intelligent, sexy (Brazilian!) and truly listens to what you want and delivers.
