Ash Benincosa without question is the BEST! – Ash far and away is the best hair stylist whom I have ever seen and of whom I have ever heard from other people. I give her free reign on my hair to do whatever she wants because I am fully confident that it will be as amazing as she is a stylist. I have gotten more compliments from people after each hair cut and even weeks afterward, which is really important in getting your hair done. Not only is she amazing at cutting and coloring but she is also very knowledgeable about product and has never let me down. Oh, and between you and me, she is as pretty, stylish, and personable as she is good at styling hair, which is always a great bonus. I really look forward to going back to her and only her as long as I have hair.
Love Jill and Tricia – Let's just say that I'm picky. Jill cut my long, somewhat wavy hair into a style that looks better than any haircut I've ever had! My hair is more wavy in some areas and straight in others and she gave me such a wonderful cut. She's easy to talk to, but not too chatty and listened carefully to what I said.
Tricia cut my 10 year old daughter's hair that is very fine, very straight and very blonde. Needless to say, every little cut is quite visible. It's the best cut she's ever had. We will be making the long trek from Tualatin back to Blu! Thank you, Ladies!
Tricia does curly! – Soooo excited I found Tricia at Blu! Not only did I feel comfortable right off the bat, but when I met Tricia it was an instant connection--with my hair! She knew exactly what I wanted without me having to say anything! She actually cut my hair almost two months ago now and I continually receive complements on my cut. Aside from the cut being catered to my curly hair, they use great products--Bumble and bumble (geared for curly hair) and Pureology (a natural and more organic product). It has taken me a year to find a great stylist in Portland and now that I have found her I am telling everyone about Tricia!
Thank you Tricia and Blu!
Allison is Amazing! – My friend turned me on to Blu a few months ago when she took me to a Ladies night. She introduced me to Allison and I have never gone anywhere since! Allison asked me something NO other stylist has ever asked. "So tell me what you like about your hair." I told her and she tailored my cut to accentuate those things. When you go back she always asks how the cut she gave you is working for you, tweaks it there is something you are struggling with, and makes sure you are satisfied before you leave. I went in today and said I thought I was ready to change it up a little and Allison went with my ideas, gave some good input on changing the length, and I walked out feeling so pretty. The staff are all very friendly and they take the time to actually show you how to style your hair to make the cut look it's best. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to a good cut and all the Bumble and Bumble products they use smell amazing.
This place rocks, even for a dude. Ashley B is the bomb! – Seriously, if you want to get a good haircut, check this place out. I was never one for very fancy haircuts, but my friend convinced me to give it a try.
My first haircut went a little something like this:
I walk in and tell Ashley that I have no idea what I want, and I'm a guy so I don't know what looks good, so do whatever you want. I LOVED it, it was a great cut and went back for the next 6 months in Portland. She really helped me appreciate a good haircut.
If you want to look good, check this place and Ashley out!
It's not just for women!!! – I have been going there for almost 7 years now! My wife has been going there for about 6 years as well! I am very picky with my hair and I LOVE Blu! They are so friendly and the vibe is awesome! I am great friends with the owner and know first hand how passionate she is about hair and beauty as well as how much she instill's that into her AWESOME staff! Forget the "Barber Shop" dudes and treat yourself to a real haircut. They even give gree ear and neck trims!
TOTALLY HAVE ASHLEY B. DO YOUR HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Blu A Salon is a fashionable, artsy, and fun hair styling experience-and Ashley is the cherry on top. She is without a doubt the sweetest woman alive. She is so young and hip and easy to talk to....and let's not forget how GREAT she is at doing hair! She sees my vision and gets it spot-on every time. She can do any hair style and in any color-whatever you want. As long as I live in Oregon, I will never go to another hair stylist. Don't settle for less, chose Blu A Salon and make an appointment with ASHLEY!!!!!
Ashley is Amazing!!! – Two thumbs up for Ashley wonderful talent of cutting and styling hair. Ashley is great about listening and delivering exactly what I want every time (and it always looks great). Also Ashley is highly experienced and can assist to evaluate what haircut/style will look good to the individual. With her upbeat personality she is always down with trying something new and will exceed to the challenge. you will not be disappointed by picking Ashley, you will love her!!
I Highly recommended Ashley if you want your hair to look Hot!!
Wonderful! – Ashley did my hair for my wedding back when she was still in California. She new exactly what I wanted and what would look good on me! She made me beautiful that day!
Ashley ALWAYS knows what I want! – Ashley cut, colored and styled my hair for a few years and I ALWAYS loved it! I am so sad she left So Cal to go to Portland because I still haven't found a stylist that compares to her talent and style!
Highly recommended! If you ask for her, you won't have to go to another stylist ever again! (Unless I somehow get her back to So Cal...)
