This review is for Tina and her coloring only. If I were the manager I would fire her- she is a liability to the business
Let's just say that as someone who is already self conscious about their fine, thin hair, she made my situation worse..... much worse. I am not someone who cries but this did it for me.
I went to Tina while at Salon JBU a few years ago and came out looking 30 years older so I dropped her. I followed Gwen (who I love love love) to this new salon and Tina came with her. Since it had been a few years, I tried Tina again- the first time she colored me I loved the color change so I thought, hey, maybe I can give her a second chance. Mind you, she would still come back smelling like cigarettes which is LOVELY for someone working on your hair let me tell you. Even that recent time that she colored my hair, her customer service was lacking and she seemed more focused on going in the back to talk, smoke, eat, I have no idea what else. I had to remind her that I was over time on my processing which is NOT MY JOB.
Then when she colored my hair again recently the situation took a turn for the worse. Not only did I experience the same problems, she turned me BLONDE which not only screwed up the color and I had to add even more chemicals to try and get me back brown, but she also BURNED my scalp, and now my hair has been falling out. Remember, I don't have much hair to begin with and now I constantly have breakage and even more thinning. Gwen had to chop my hair off (which really sucked and it looked terrible) to try and get some of the damaged hair cut off but I really don't think it helped too much. I got so screwed over I don't even know what to do.
In addition, this happened the night before I left for a 10 year wedding vow renewal trip to Costa Rica and sadly this really affected my time. Gwen being her awesome self, tried her best to help me out that night and since then, but I was burned, literally and figuratively.
Bottom line, Tina is flaky, inattentive, unprofessional, unskilled, and more concerned with her next smoke than her "clients." Don't let her get within 10 feet of your head or you will suffer permanent physical and emotional damage like me.
Fav Salon in Bellevue – Mark Jackson, the owner, has done my hari for over 25 years. He's the best. The whole salon is top notch. Friendly, current but not to the point that you feel you can't just be old school! Love them. Try it out. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Simply the best facial ever – I recently had a European facial at Mark Allen Salon and Spa by Holly. It was simply the best facial I have ever had. She really knows how to pamper your skin. Beautiful comfortable room in a quiet corner of the salon. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I look forward to having Holly do all my skin care and waxing needs.

Lee Ann Galli is the best – Lee Ann has been my hair stylist for many years and she's fantastic. I followed her to Mark Allen Salon and like the salon very much as its a good fit for Lee Ann. Mark runs a good operation and team seem fired up to work there.
If you're looking for a great stylist and great person, Lee Ann is top notch!
Great style and service! – I have been going to LeAnne at the Mark Allen Salon in Bellevue for years and she always gives me a fresh new look that's really stylish! Plus when I come in for just a "color only" she trims my hair to keep it in style in between cuts and doesn't even charge me for that! That's great service and that's why I keep coming back!
Fabulous Look!!!! – LeAnne at the Mark Allen Salon in Bellevue just colored my hair and she is so on the cutting edge of color. I love it! She always has the latest and most updated style going on. You can't find anyone more on top of style than LeAnne. She is always telling me about another class she attending - she is very ahead of the game in hair style. She is fantastic!
Love love love my hair!! – I was daring enough to try the bio-ionic treatment (reverse perm) and was not dissapointed! My hair was transformed from frizzy and difficult to relaxed and manageable.
Lee Ann is my fabulous hair stylist at the Mark Allen salon and not only do I trust her expertise, I trust her with my budget too :)
2 thumbs up for a beautiful salon
2 thumbs up for my awesome stylist!
Love this salon – Kim Hooks is my stylist at Mark Allen Salon. She does a great job! She's friendly, and she listens to what I want to do with my hair. Kim gives great advice on styles and products. She's always on time. I've been seeing her for years! She's the best!
Awesome Hairdresser – I see Lee Ann at Mark Allen. She has transformed my look for the winter. Great at color and custom cutting. The shape of my face the tone of my skin. I always walk out about two inches taller and more confident about myself. Shes reliable and on time. She has moved to Salon Tewl in Bellevue. 425-455-0818
