RUN away from the shears – need i say more? Costly hair cut $75. The stylist was talking to everyone around her and should have been paying attention to my hair..as it was obvious that she was not very well trained with how to texturize hair and should have focused on it ..
I will never go there again and advise all others to search out a better place...Super cuts....could have done the same job for a lot less.
Mostly great hair/poor service – I'm not quite sure what changed with this salon. They used to be amazing. They're nice and accommodating until you don't like your hair and then everyone turns into a passive aggressive b#^%h when all you want is to get it fixed. I'll go back because my stylist is typically great but will keep my eyes open for a salon that treats their clients like they should be treated.
Average, but I keep going until I find something better. – I've been going to Beehive for years and have had a few different stylists. Generally I've been pleased. I have my brows waxed by Michelle and usually she is perfect. On only one occasion was a bit too much was taken off, but for the years I've been going one error doesn't seem bad. I think the cuts are decent, but not worth the high charges- they used to be reasonable, but over the last few years it's gotten to be pricy! Now I get my hair cut elsewhere, but I keep going back for color to Laura who I really like- she's great at recommending something that will look natural. My biggest problem is always scheduling and customer service. It's not easy to get an appointment for a time that works for my work schedule and the counter help seems pretty bored/unsympathetic. They seem to force a smile as you pay your bill and they run through the routine of offering you a beverage, but I never feel welcomed and they give off the impression that they'd prefer to have no customers so they could just hang out with the staff.
Jale is AH-MAZE-ING – I've been known to bounce around from salon to salon, because I'm generally a satisfied customer but I'm always looking for something... MORE. The full experience: a fun atmosphere, laid-back stylists who are GOOD at what they do and listen to what I want, and good prices. Jale is the epitomy of these!
I went in on the advice of a friend who has fabulous hair and came out with the most amazing hair style that fit my face perfectly. What I loved about Jale was she was SO understanding of what I wanted. I was actually really nervous about getting bangs, and she took me seriously instead of dismissing my concerns. We had great NATURAL conversation the entire time and she is definitely a fun person. I've already gone back for a complementary fringe trim and I will definitely be back to Jale & Beehive for my next cut!
Oh yeah, and I've already recommended her to a few friends and they all ADORE her.
Beehive keeps me lookin' lovely! – Since I started seeing Faith for my haircuts, I have consistently received compliments on how great my hair looks, even by other stylists! Seriously, not to sound shallow, but the woman changed my life by making me look hot. The salon is cute and comfortable. The people at the front desk are always nice, they give you yummy tea and a hand and a scalp massage, and they only use Aveda products which smell delicious and are super low on the toxicity level! I always leave a very happy, very pretty looking lady. Highly recommended! I <3 Beehive.
The best in Seattle! – I have tried some quite reputable Salons in Seattle and I was always disappointed. I started going to one of the ladies, at Beehive through the reference of a friend with great hair and finally got exactly what I wanted. I always look forward to my Beehive appointments for a fun experience and a great style to last for days. I love the products and their specials after using many different reputable lines. I can't tell you how often I get compliments on the cut and colour of my hair, sometimes over a month after the service. I love that they have fun with the style and colour, but still listen to what I want every time I go in. I have been getting my hair done there for at least 2 years now and I am satisfied every time. The staff and the owner are kickass and I have to say that I find the reviews below to petty and totally off. I can count on both hands, enough people that I personally know, who would give Beehive a 5 star rating. If you want a relaxed, fun, and totally amazing colour/cut experience with great personality to boot then go to Beehive Salon because they are fabulous!
Avoid, unless you want the stylist version of what your hair should look like – Wow, I have a really bad, unflattering haircut.I did not ask for this, at all! I mean who goes into a salon and says "Could you make my hair look really bad, as unflattering as possible". The sylist did not listen, should I dare name her or would that result in abuse and shear nasty and agressive behavior as it did for the other poor, unfortunate woman who has to live with bad hair. It is great to see that the stylist are able to rate their own services in order to keep "stars" up.
Another issue is that when I did try to say that I was unsatisfied I was given an email address. What a kick in the face. So if I have to email a complaint I might as well take the time to write them out on other web sites. (this is also in response to the other "review", but all complaints at this salon are via email) I did not say anything at the salon out of shock. And called when I got home, in tears and was told this was the protocol. Maybe complaints have to be emailed, because honestly who would want to verbalize something with a stylist in this salon after that self review.
It seems as if consumers are loosing their voice with businesses big and small. There is no such thing as customer service, or the "customer is usually right". The idea of the consumer will take what we give and like it. It is sad to see that this "idealism" has trickled into almost every stream of America..this salon included. FIight back or voice your opinion and get made into an "anti".
BOttom line...did not get what I asked for, trust me, it was not a new hair cut that I asked for. Stylist went with her vision not my request. Short choppy layers not long soft layers Phoned and given a email and "click".
Thanks Beehive for giving me bad, unflattering hair.
If you want my body and your thing I'm sexy...If you wanna look like Rod Stewart Circa 1986 – Sylist did not LISTEN..even when asked if my hair was being cut a certian way...REALLY the WORST haircut that I ever had. Anyone that knows hair would know not to razor cut thick corse hair...I said soft and wispy she gave me choppy and chunky. My hair looks like it was put in a food processor. I asked for it to stay long enought to put into a ponytail...can't even pull it back, when I said something she said "why don't you pin it up with bobby pins". I am sorry, but it is MY hair and I have to live with it and I know what I WANT and what my life style is like. It really make me P/o'd that someone just did what they felt like and I had to pay for it with a bad too short and choppy have to use products in it Rod Stewart haircut and with my hard earned cash!!!
Honestly, everyone asks where I got my hair cut and when I tell them they ALL say either they have had a bad experience here or say that they would avoid it based on what my hair looks like! So, I know that it is not just me.
Go here if you'd love to wake everyday to a bad hair day.
I love beehive salon – I have been going to beehive salon since they first opened in my neighboorhood. I have since moved out of the neighborhood but continue to go back to beehive because of their wonderfull service and cool atmosphere. I think I have seen everyone there at one time or another and everyone is great, I have never had a bad experience. No matter where I live or work, I will always consider beehive to be my favorite place to get my hair done.
Despite what miller5454 thinks, Beehive still rocks!! – My name is Jale (note spelling) and I am a stylist at Beehive Salon. I am writing in response to miller5454's review. I would like to start off by saying I am very sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with the service I provided you, miller5454. I take pride in my work and am never pleased to hear of anyone's disappointment. Unfortunately, the problem wasn't remedied before you left the salon (had you mentioned you weren't satisfied, I certainly would have tried my best to make you happy). It is also unfortunate that I have to learn of your experience on a website instead of from my salon. Being such a loyal client of Beehive, I would think you would be aware of how understanding we are of these things. I would like to invite you back, miller5454, so I may have the opportunity to provide you the service you expected. Having said that, I would like to address your review. I have been working at Beehive Salon for a year and I have seen nothing but the utmost level of pride and professionalism from it's staff and nothing but happy clients leave everyday. For you to tarnish any of our reputations because you had a poor experience that you were frightened to address, miller5454, is unfair. I have also read your same review on yelp. I am not sure why you would go to the trouble to post multiple reviews and not call the salon directly when again, Beehive is always receptive to client concerns. Oh, by the way, I noticed from yelp that your name is Elizabeth Miller. I scoured my bookings, I have never seen an Elizabeth Miller. Perhaps you are using a name other than your own...that's strange.
