I was looking for a new stylist because I didn’t feel like my previous one was listening to me. Adrienne was amazing, she listened to what I wanted and I walked out of the salon with exactly what I asked for — and my hair looks amazing!”

Adrienne is the BEST. She is so good at what she does. I can’t recommend her enough. She aims to please and also has high integrity, doing what is best for the client. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The service that Adrienne provides is a rare and beautiful thing compared to the vast sea of overpriced, mediocre haircuts in San Francisco. She is efficient, consistent and she expertly cajoles my thick, wavy two heads worth of hair into long, seamless and professional layers. Colorbox Salon as a whole is fully inviting and unpretentious and I look forward to every visit

This was the first time that I met with Adrienne - even talked to her. She was great - i showed her what i wanted and mentioned that I was a bit nervous. She talked me through what she was thinking and why - example - lets not fry your hair. (Thank you!)

I’ve already told my friends about her - she is simply a delight to have work on your hair and hang out for those three hours that it takes to get that bad boy taken care of.

i’m slightly obsessed

About Me


Since I could talk I have been singing. Music has always been a huge influence in my life. In fact, my parents met at a club where my dad was playing in a band and my mom was a go-go dancer.

I believe music and fashion, including hair, go hand-in-hand. My first hair style icons were people like Cyndi Lauper, Boy George, Duran Duran, Annabella from Bow Wow Wow, Robert Smith, Siouxsie Sioux, The Sex Pistols, and even at a young age people like Cher and Dolly Parton.

My first haircut was on  myself at age 14--I copied Cyndi Lauper's cut, and later the color! I continue to be inspired by music with my work, and have cut and styled many musicians as well as regular folks who just want cool hair.

I'm also a part time DJ,  billed as Adrienne Scissorhands

I've had resident DJ nights at Beauty Bar, Monarch, The Residence and Cherry Bar in San Francisco, and The Hanging Garden events in Oakland. Currently I've been DJing at least once a month at Radio in Oakland.
