I have been going to Hair Architects since I had my hair done by Dante for my wedding three years ago. I have dark blonde (OK, it's brown) hair and when I lighten it is almost always got brassy/red under tones until I met Dante! you don't even know how happy I am to have found someone who listened to me and GOT it =) Plus she is funny and gauges how she interacts with you based on your mood. She also helped me find products to extend the life of my (now non-brassy) color- which isn't really in her best interest, but mine. Thanks Dante, you're the best!
AMAZING! Two years ago I "cheated" on – I usually don't post reviews on these types of websites but I HAVE to give credit where credit is due. I had my hair cut and high-lighted by Dante last week and aside from feeling like every day since has been a great "hair day", I have received SO many compliments on my new do:) Dante was SO friendly and although I probably came off as "high maintenance", she made me feel like I was easy to deal with and she gave me the look I was going for.
If you're looking for a great stylist (and at a reasonable price) go see Dante at Hair Architects! You'll thank me:)
I purchased a Groupon for Keratin treatment with Paige. I called to schedule an appointment and I had one in May. Someone called (I believed it was Paige) very apologetic gave me a reason to reschedule the appointment because she wasn't able to make it (the exact reason I don't remember). I had flexible time so I agreed to call back to schedule another one.
I called back yesterday (06/10) not knowing that the salon is closed on Mondays but still I left a message. I called again today (06/11) and I scheduled the appointment with the help of other person.
Later on, Paige contacted me to let me know that back in May according to her records, I was a no show and her policy was when this is the case is to void the deal.
I told her that I was not a no show and in fact I agreed to reschedule the appointment because she needed to. Very rudely and unprofessionally she told me that she did not remember any of this, that she did not have that in her records that she was going to talked to her manager about it and she was going to get back to me at the end of the day.
I got very upset and told her that it was very disrespectful because in other words she made it seen that I was making up a story. I said to her that I needed to talk to her manager and she hang up on me.
Never had my treatment because I complained with Groupon right away and they gave me my refund.
I will not try to go here again!!
I am not usually someone that gushes about experiences, because I tend to have unreasonably high standards, but this place was way beyond my expectation, much to my surprise! I got the Japanese Hair Straightening Treatment from Paige, and she did AMAZING. I had heard horrible things about it making your hair dry or frizzy, and she even warned me that might happen - especially since I have naturally dry hair - but when I left, my hair was STICK STRAIGHT and SOFT! Exactly the look I wanted!! With this treatment, you have to keep it down and not wet for five days, and I got it last night - the amount of compliments I got on it between then and now is incredible! And of course, I love it! On top of all that, she has great personality and you can tell she really loves what she does. I will DEFINITELY be returning here, and I honestly don't think I could go anywhere else after the amazing job she did!!
I would highly recommend Paige. Everytime I see her she is so up beat and happy. She knows exactly what I want in a hair cut. Happy customer EVERTIME!!! Thank You Paige
I highly recommend this hair salon! All the stylists are wonderful. Coffee is served too! That's a biggie for me. I personally can recommend Alex! She is professional, an excellent stylist and is good with highlighting. A genuinely nice gal!
Dante' is a rock star. By far the most professional and courteous staff in the Portland metro area. Dante' was able to give me exactly the style that I wanted and kept me entertained the entire time with thoughtful and intelligent conversation. She isn't too hard on the eyes either. The prices are perfect for the excellent quality of work and the atmosphere is comfortable and accommodating. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who is new to Portland, or is looking for a change in their stylist. A + all around.
Can a Groupon for a salon be dangerous? It can, if it makes a casual buyer of manicures and pedicures want to become a regular. I never got mani/pedis until I started using Groupon. Now my experience with Susan Randall may take my hands and feet off the market. She is by far the best at her craft. Two weeks into my shellac manicure, and it still looks great! My toes are flawless too. Thanks, Susan, for being the real deal. Your work is amazing!
I went in today for a Japanese relaxer with Alex. She is a very professional and friendly lady, readily available to answer any questions about the procedure. I had a very positive experience and I am already looking forward to booking my touchup! Highly recommended!
