Jen is Phenominal – I've been going to Jen for over two years and have received consistently amazing cuts. Jen is extremely friendly and somehow manages to add texture and depth even to the simplest of cuts. I've tried out quite a few of the salons/stylist in downtown and capitol hill, and Halo is hands down the best. It has great decor (they feature constantly changing artwork from local artists) and extremely talented stylists--and, unlike most salons in the area, the staff is down to earth and completely unpretentious. I normally wouldn't go out of my way to write a review, but Halo *and especially Jen* definitely deserve the praise.
The Best Cut and Color - Colleen is GREAT!! – I had an idea of what I wanted my hair cut to look like but I was hoping to get some input from the stylist. Colleen, the stylist, listened to what my general ideas were and then made them better. It was obvious that doing a great job was important to her as well as to me. She took ownership in the process. That does not mean she told me what would look best and did not care what I thought. It was a collaboration. The sort of experience most people would envision from a great stylist. Now that said, it's nice that she cared and had fantastic input but lets face it that only gets you so far. If she can't back the ideas and customer service up with solid cutting and coloring skills. Happily she can and she did. I love my hair cut!! My boyfriend and others comment on how cute it is often. The color is perfect. Unless you knew it was colored you wouldn't. It looks that natural. Exactly what I wanted.
Colleen @ Halo is fabulous – I've been going to Colleen at Halo for the past 18 months and have had an excellent experience. I was referred to Halo by my previous stylist in Austin, TX. Since I've been going to Halo, my hair looks great! I've had so many compliments. I'd describe Halo as a comfortable, unfussy yet stylish place with genuine, friendly staff. Colleen has found a nice balance of color & highlights for my hair that suits my skin-tone. She has given me haircuts with subtle layers that grow out nicely and that look good all the way 'til my next cut, unlike sloppier 'dos I've had in the past. As a stylist,Colleen is a attentive, professional, prompt and she knows her stuff, so she's fast, which I totally appreciate!! I feel comfortable having my hair in her capable hands! Thanks Colleen!
Halo and Colleen are the best – Halo is a great salon with reasonable prices and a comfortable (yet very hip) atmosphere. Colleen Christian has been cutting my straight hair since 2005, taking it from long layers to short and hip with subtle changes in between?always with great results. She's also good at hearing what you have to say about your style and maintenance routine, makes thoughtful but never pushy suggestions, and remembers those details for later visits. I've never really stayed loyal to a stylist for this long, she's friendly and fabulous!
AWFUL CUT and SERVICE – Jen cut my hair and did an awful job. She left a huge ledge in my hair and it was very choppy. After she was running 45 minutes late.
I called to have it fixed they told me I would have to wait a week! So, her friend and fellow stylist re-cut my hair the next day. And took off a lot of length and I did not want the length touched. And then put almost holes in my hair from cutting it higher on the sides in the middle. It has been almost 2 months, and my hair still looks awful.
Jen was beside me when I was getting the re-cut, and would not even speak to me. Very immature and very unprofessional. I will not return and I will tell people to never go to Halo salon.
Johnathan is a color master! – Johnathan is the color master!! I recently moved to Seattle, and finding the right colorist has been a nightmare, not to mention all the money wasted on bad highlights. When I started seeing him for my hair, the journey of finding the perfect match was over. I no longer have to worry about someone frying my hair, or doing what they want instead of what I want. Not only does he do a phenomenal job, but he also understands a great deal about the chemistry of hair color, so when he envisions something it comes out exactly the same (no hidden surprises). I believe your experience will be just as pleasurable as mine.
Medina is AWESOME!! – Medina has cut and colored (foils) my hair several times and each time is better than the last. She told me she spent a week prior to my appointment thinking about my hair to determine what the absolute best look for me (for the shape of my face and my coloring) and her dedication to excellence totally showed! My hair is the best it's looked in 5 years. People on the street stop me and ask for my hairdressers name - because I look SO FREAKING FABULOUS!! : )
I would recommend Medina to anybody!
Such a GREAT place! – I saw Robin, he was so sweet. I was blond and wanted to go dark, we talked alot about the pro's and con's. He wanted me to know exactly what I was getting into. In the end I decided to do it and absolutly love it. The color is a rich dark brown, it was shine, healthy and I feel beautiful. I will trust Robin with my hair, I can finally feel loyal to 1 hairdresser!
Blonde/shell – Johnathan is amazing with blondes. It has been so long since someone made me that blonde, with no damage. I have fine, long hair so it tends to get damaged easy. Give the boy a try, and try a deep condition it helps alot!
Johnathan is the Doogie of hair! – He is quite possibly the most ept stylist of the whole of Seattle (and I've met the most of them)!
He simply creates the best blonde ever- hands down- and he's like 14!
Check him out... he does not dissapoint!
