great experience with Fredrick & Alexander – I went to Etherea and had my haircut from Fredrick! It was a job well done! He was fun and friendly! The staff there was friendly and professional. I also had a thorough consultation with Alexander Scott about thermal relaxing for my next visit. Can't wait to return!
Entirely Disappointing ...Tired of Phillip! – I went to Etherea to see Phillip, he has been my stylist for about a 2 years now. I followed him there from another 3 other Aveda salons, this is now his 4th. First of all, the parking was a disaster, couldn't find street parking, and had to pay $17 to park in a lot, and it made me late to my appointment, and that made Phillip very annoyed. He was tugging on my hair as he was cutting and blow-drying it -he was just so negative and bitter, as he had someone else waiting that was also late due the horrible parking. I have followed him from several Aveda salons. 4 salons in like 2 years, ..that he probably, I am now thinking he got fired from them all, because he always has such mean things to say about his previous salons. Why doesn't he ever have anything nice to say? I feel like he sings my praises, but it's really fake. I for about a year had to hear his bitterness about his previous employer, then I followed him to another salon, and heard nothing but gossip about the other employer. To be kind and professional, it is entirely inappropriate to bad mouth your previous places you worked at ...at least he had a jobs in this economy! Now, I followed him to his latest place, Etherea, in which the place was like a ghost town, and very dirty, and it was awful. Bad decor, snobby and rude people, parking was expensive, then I have to sit and listen for 2 hours of gossip about his latest previous employer. I have seen Phillip order people around, and I just never know what kind of mood he is going to be in. Either he is really nice, but it seems like he just cares about my money and not me, or he is just gossiping away about all of his "horrible" ex-bosses. I came to know the last one, and it is obvious he was fired, and as I sat down, he once again proceeded to tell me awful things as usual about his recent previous boss. So, I follow him from 1 salon to another to another, I listen to him, I hear all the gossip as I have come to expect, but as I sat there this time, I began to wonder ...if all he does is gossip about his prior salons, the problem is probably not with his ex-salons, but with Phillip. Why can't he stay in one place? Why does he jump from salon to salon, bad-mouthing everyone and every other salon in the city? I have decided I am tired of listening to his drama, and I want someone to listen to how I want my hair done, not the latest scoop as to why he has changed salons ONCE again. I am going back to his previous Aveda salon in West Seattle ...they were really nice there, and there was parking, and I felt very comfortable. So tired of listening to Phillip and his drama!!!
Go see Sofia! – I went for my first haircut, and had the best experience! All of the staff were very friendly, and I left the salon feeling wonderful. Sofia is an incredible hairstylist - she really listens, takes her time, and does a fabulous job!
go see Alexander Scott – It had been awhile since my last haircut, as I am growing out my hair. My layers were a mess, and my hair looked dead, so I didn't know what to do. I thought I was going to have to take a lot off the length to make my hair look good again. I explained to Alexander that I wanted to keep my hair long if possible, but with more volume. Most stylists take this to mean that I want an upside down U in the back of my head with layers, which is not true! I told Alexander that I didn't know what to do to make my hair look better, so I trusted him to make the decision. My hair turned out AMAZING. he took the time to make sure my layers were symmetrical, which I really appreciate since that often does not happen. He also walked me through how to style my hair the way he did since I usually used a different round brush than he did. He then told me what products to mix, so now I can style my hair the same as he did. I was very satisfied with my haircut and will be going back to Alexander Scott for my next appointment.
Alexander Scott is fantastic – i highly recommend alexander scott - hair stylist. i have a few friends who had been clients of his at another salon and when i saw their cuts i said - "whoa - who did your hair?" i was truly happy with my cut - he has a knack for styling that goes way beyond his years, an eye for geometry, and got my hair to behave in ways i didn't think was possible. i know a scott will be going places in this business. get in while you can!
also - very nice warm staff at etherea too.
Awesome Hair & Friendliest employees!!! – OK so never written a review before but I'm bored at work and getting my hair done tomorrow figured I'd mess around on computer look up stuff and I find my favorite hairstylist totally trash talked on this website. I have been going to etherea for over two years and have never had anything less than excellent service from my hairstylist and all of the other people who work there. I get my hair done by mercedes and I have never had so many compliments on my hair color ever in my life and I've been coloring it for 8 years now. Not only do I love love love my hair I also love going to get it done because I get treated like a queen very time I enter their salon (complimentary foot soaks and sometimes facials are such a treat!). I'm sorry but I'm sure whoever has a bad thing to say about mercedes or the salon must have a personal grudge because myself and the several people I have referred to her love what she does.
Joe P. can be found at Etherea! – Clients of Joe, formerly of Habitude at the Locks, will be happy to know he is doing his magic at Etherea in Belltown. If you haven't been his client before, you can expect to be listened to, cared for, and flattered by his work. Joe's application of color is skillful, his cuts are careful, and the total effect in my experience has been nothing short of fantastic. The fact that he is a sweet and considerate guy is just a bonus!
Erica is Fabulous – I met Erica when Charlie was in from Sheer Genius; my son and I were hair models at that time, Erica did a great job on my sons very long, very curly hair biracial hair.
I scheduled a color and cut with Erica and she is buy far the best stylist I have been to in years, she is friendly, caring, attentive and best of all I came out with the color and exact cut that I wanted. Thank you Erica you are wonderful!
great service,they care,Beauiful wig work – I just was visiting the reviews of my favorite salon and thought I would write about my visit to Etherea. A year ago this month I was diagnosed with cancer. I have been getting by hair done at Etherea salon for several years. I told my stylist I had to go through treatment and I was worried about losing my hair. She assured me that she has worked with several clients that have gone through the same experience and let me know she would take care of my hair. She came to my home and measured my head for a wig. She bought the wig for me color it, cut it and styled it. Then came back over to my house (because I was to embarrassed to leave) to shave my hair that was falling out by the hand fulls. When she finished the wig looked exactly like my own hair. I am still battling cancer and Lisa still treats me as part of the Etherea family and comes over to see me on a regular bases to wash and style my hair. I saw the last reviews and find them to be quite silly, they are lucky to have their health, let alone their hair.
They can't even get Guy's hair right – Right after I got my horrible haircut (by Mercedes) I had to bring my brother into get his by another Man who works there (don't remember his name) because he already had an appointment and I thought how bad can he be. Well First didn't listen to one thing that we said. Wouldn't carry on a conversation with my brother. And rushed to finish it because he had over booked himself. That was the last time I went.
