Do you want great hair?? See Megan!!!!! – So I have been going to the same hairstylist for a long time and was getting pretty bored. I kept asking her for something new, a different cut or a new color but it never would turn out the way I wanted so I decided it was time for a change!
I started looking online and found a lot of great reviews about Salon JBU and noticed a lot of those reviews were for Megan. So I thought I would try her out! When I went to the salon website and read Megan's bio I thought to myself... shes young, beautful and she has to keep up with the lastest trends...she'll know what to do!!
I made my first appointment with her for color, foil (gotta cover those grays!!) and a haircut and when I was done I knew I made the right decision!! Megan listened to me, she understood what I wanted and how I felt bored with my current look and she gave me her professional opinion on what to do with my hair. Ive been going to Megan for awhile now and everytime I see her I love my hair! The salon is great, everyone is so nice! I would highly recommend Megan to anyone and everyone!
Best cut in 10 years! – I've been searching for a stylist since I moved here from Minneapolis 10 years ago and I think I finally found her...Cathy at JBU! She knew exactly what to do and took time to match my color and tone down my highlights.
What;s amazing is that when I get up in the morning my hair looks good BEFORE I do anything to it! Now that;s a super cut! My husband commented that my hair looks the best it has ever looked since we came to the Northwest.
Thanks Cathy...I'll be back!
Best haircut and color ever! – Who says people with short hair can't cut long hair? Megan can and it looks so great!!! I am not very good about choosing a style to compoliment my face but Megan is an expert. I followed her suggestions and got my first layered cut in years. She also gave me one of the best highlight jobs I've had in a long time. Thanks Megan! You are the best.
Best coloring I ever had!!!! – Megan is the very best hair coloring expert I ever known in the area, she did my color highlight perfect everytime, I am a perfectionist and very picky esp about my hair color. I love Megan's work so much and I got many compliments on my hair highlights everywhere I go. She is awesome and detail oriented, she remembered what I like and what I prefer during every visit. I will never go anywhere else, just Megan can do it right for me!
I finally found my hair stylist: Megan! – For the first 3 years I moved to Seattle, I was a hair salon gypsy. I tried famous, well known, well established salons as well as Asian salons with Asian stylists. When I was just about to give up my hope of finding "the one", I found Megan. Since then, I said good bye to my gypsy life and I am completely satisfied whenever I see Megan.
When I see her, I don't usually have a clear image of what I want to do with my hair. Megan takes time to talk/listen to me to figure out what I really want to do, and she gives me great result every time. I get lots of compliments on my hair, even from total strangers (that shows I'm not the only one who thinks my hair looks fabulous!) My last visit was a hair color/highlight, which I have never done in my life (oh, but I'm not a teenager. I'm old enough to have a kid or two.) It took longer than I expected, but that's because she wanted to make sure that the color was right and most of all, I WAS HAPPY with the color. I also like her honesty and eagerness to get my feedback. Every time I see her, she tell me that if I don't like whatever she did (after I go home), if things don't work out, let her know so I'll be happier and she'll be a better stylist for me. I am very happy with Megan and am continue to be her client!
Color by Megan – I live in Tucson, and my mom lives in the Seattle area. Whenever I'm there for a visit I like to go to JBU and always request Megan for my cut and color. She does a great job, and I have curly hair, so my haircuts are not always an easy task. She is easy to talk to, and is always willing to work with me to figure out the best way to get my cut and color just the way I want.
I'm really looking forward to my next visit!
Happy I found Hair by Megan! – After years of commuting to a hair stylist, I finally decided to try someone more local. A friend recommended going to Megan at JBU Salon... And I'm glad I did! Megan had some great ideas for my hair, but also listened to what I wanted to do with it. She made sure to keep in mind that I have a toddler and can't always " do" my hair. So if I can't make it in for a foil as often as I'd like, my hair still looks good. Now when I go in I don't have to make suggestions on what to do, I trust her with my hair. She is up to date with styles and is very professional. You can tell she has a passion for hair and of course her clients. That is what keeps me coming back and recommending her to friends and family.
best haircut by far – I am so very picky when it comes to my hair because it seldom looks good even when I put in what seems like half a days work into it. Sadly I also think that my hair is my best feature. So you can imagine how I have struggled finding a hairdresser. I have found 2 in my 30 years living in the NW. One retired a few years after I started coming to him and the other moved away only after a few cuts.
After much research and asking around people that I thought had a good haircut I found Gwen. She's God sent! I booked my appointment online and that in itself is wonderous. The parking lot was a little full but I managed after a couple of rounds. (avoid lunch time) The salon was clean and not as stuck up as some highend salons that I've been to. Gwen was running 10mins late but I didn't mind because it gave me time to check out her work on her previous client. (Who looked great and was very happy) She was very quick and to the point which was different but I like the no BS approach. The sampoo was good but not as pampering as some that I've had, then again I was here for a cut not a massage. She did something I've never experienced before: She gave me a haircuting class. By the time she was done, which was again very fast, I felt like I could instruct anyone to cut my hair. Then she showed me how to style it! Not just push a bunch of products at me but actually a lesson on how to style my hair and that was even faster. I loved how it looked but doubt that I could recreate it. Then she told me to come in for a bang trim in between cuts, again something I never even heard of. Lastly she surprised me by telling me to book eight weeks out instead of my usual five weeks. I thought she's got to be kidding me.
It's been several haircuts now and I have to say I still LOVE my hair and I adore Gwen! I go in for the bang trim she suggested and she does more than just my bangs at no cost! I have been able to style my hair in less than ten minutes in the morning and it still looks good at the end of my day. It's a little long in eight weeks but I don't mind as much as I'd thought. I've also come to appreciate her no nonsense attitude. She's friendly and funny but she doesn't have all that "I am an artist" BS.
I will no longer be a client at JBU. – I have gone to JBU for about a year for my haircuts; my daughter had her hair fixed there for Prom - all great. Unfortunately, about 6 weeks ago, I was referred to Megan for color and the result has been disastrous. I wanted my haircolor to gradually be lightened through highlighting to become closer in color to my increasing grey roots in order to avoid the monthly root touch-up. Megan applied highlights but also used a color darker than my natural hair at the roots unbeknowst to me. When she removed the foil, she was as surprised as I was and made some indication that another stylist had advised her to use the darker color. Although at that moment it looked alright, it did not get me any closer to avoiding root touch-up monthly. Megan indicated we would see how the color grew out and correct if need be.
Five weeks later I again had the one-inch white roots with what looks as though a black Magic Marker had been used to draw a dark line between my roots and the rest of my hair. It took me three calls to get Megan to return my call. She was cool and unconcerned and left a message that I should call the receptionist and let the receptionist know what I was calling about. When I finally was able to connect with Megan, she admitted it would probably take at least two complete foils to correct the dark line and dark roots. In addition, she would make no price adjustment and instead was going to charge me the same $150 again. I am a single mom who works two jobs and am not able to afford $150.00 every six weeks. My recommendation is to avoid Megan’s handiwork at all costs. I would not have been so upset if she had owned her misjudgment in even the slightest way or shown any concern at all. Megan is unprofessional and incompetent at this stage of her career.
Very happy with Gwen’s haircut – Gwen gave me a hair cut more than one month ago, and I did not have any bad hair day since. In the past, my hair can look messy and fuzzy if I did not take care of it. However, her hair cut requires very little maintenance. My hair always look good even after I use cheap hair shampoo or forget to blow try it. Her hair cut brings out the natural beauty of my slightly wavy hair and it frames my face softly that I started to love and appreciate my face everyday. Gwen’s haircut is more expensive than other stylists. I had to wait 15 minutes for a 30 minutes haircut because she was running late from the previous haircut. However, I think her haircut worth every penny and I would come back to her again.
