Tacoma's Best Kept Hair Secret – Purchased a visit through Groupon and will definitely visit again. A great fun and funky location in the Harmon Lofts building with a down-to-earth and very knowledgeable team of stylists. My visit was with Kristina who gave my dull boring locks shape, style and shine. My only regret is not getting a later appointment to indulge in a tasty glass of wine.
Ok experience – I recently bought the groupon deal for waxing and went in for my first brazilian. I like Ehrin she was very comfortable and made me feel at ease. My issue was the cleanliness of the waxing room. Stuff is stacked everywhere there is dirt and hair on the floor. No place to hang anything up or put anything down. Feels like someones messy bedroom. Made me question the cleanliness of the wax etc. too. Not sure if I would go back.
Christeen Is Wonderful – I have been with Christeen for 6 years. She has never made me unhappy! I am constantly complimented on my hair color even by strangers. I would never go to anyone else, EVER! I love my hair and have made friends with my hair, yes I know that sounds corny! I would recommend Christeen to anyone, she bends over backward for you and does not stop until you and she are satified. She takes her time and does not rush, she is perfect! I love having my hair done, I look forward to it! Thank you Christeen for all your hard work!
Christeen is fabulous! – I started having Christeen cut my hair a few years ago - mostly I chose her because she was close to my house. Right away I was impressed with the amount of time she took with my hair. She really looked at it, played around with it and gave honest feedback on what style would work best for my hair. She's very friendly and really cares about her clients.
My hair is relatively thin and I've struggled with finding a hairstyle to give it a lift - without a lot of hair products. With Christeen's hair cutting skills, I don't have to spend a lot of time on my hair. It looks good even if I just blow dry it without any styling aids.
Recently she started coloring my hair and I honestly have never received so many compliments on my hair. I just put myself in her hands and let her do what she thinks best - I trust her that much and she's never disappointed me. I always leave thrilled with my look.
Christeen recently moved to the downtown Azarra location. I've only been there a couple of times, but so far I like what I've seen. It's a very casual and fun atmosphere.
I highly recommend Christeen Cho - you won't be disappointed.
Way overpriced for what you get. – I usually don't write bad reviews just because I'm unhappy with service but I'm making an exception. I thought Aura was nice but rude and even insulting - perhaps unintentionally. But nonetheless I really regret going there. Probably one of the most expensive salons in town but definitely nowhere near the best for services or results.
We are truly sorry this client had a lousy experience. We certainly don't want to be rude or insulting (even unintentionally!)
Going to a new salon is intimidating enough for some people, to feel that you didn't get your money's worth must add injury to the insult!
Aura is often brash and is known for her sarcasm. She understands that not everyone finds that appealing and apologizes for any offense. If you would like a preview of Aura's attitude, you can check out her book (Get Some Hairapy) or the salon's blog (http://getsomehairapy.wordpress.com).
As to the issue of price, Azarra Salon is in the upper 25% of price in Tacoma and Aura is the highest priced stylist in the salon (cuts are $50). Many people feel that they get their money's worth but we understand that this fact doesn't have any impact on the person who felt differently.
Talented hairstylist Jonathan rocks this eclectic salon in downtown Tacoma! – For the past year and a half, after moving away from my hairstylist who I had relied on for years to cut my short hair, I have tried to find someone local who could follow a few simple instructions and to put it bluntly: CUT MY HAIR RIGHT! After many failed attempts, I made an appointment online to see Jonathan at Azarra Salon. I couldn't have left a happier person :) At last I found someone who listened to what I wanted to have done and clearly had the skills and technique to carry it out! I will definitely be going back--thanks!!
makeup star – Hey Jonathon! thanks so much for doing the makeup at the TacomaOpolis Fashion show! It's always a pleasure to have such top notch style at our events. You do a great job with getting those dramatic stage looks and all your efforts are greatly appreciated! Sorry for the delay of this note. <3 j
See Jonathan for the cut of a lifetime! =D – So the first time I went to see Jonathan I didn't have a clue as to what I wanted to do to my hair. I was never satisfied with whatever happened to it. Low and behold Jonathan came into a coffee shop I worked for at the time and we became friends and he told me to come up to the Azarra shop right above the Harmon restaurant. I went and saw him and at first he had me scared because he told me that he wanted to try a faux-hawk and get on some foiling. It was the best hair cut I have ever had, and since that day I have never even thought of going anywhere else. If you don't mind spending a little bit of cash, Azarra Salon is the place to go! You won't regret it. And remember, Jonathan is the guy to ask for...chances are he'll approach you first, though =)
My favorite salon ever, only because Jonathan works there and he is amazing!!! – Whenever I go to Azarra salon to get my hair done by Jonathan it is always a good time. He never holds back so each time I leave with my hair looking like this beautiful colorful creation that I always always LOVE! He is super fun and friendly. I would never go anywhere else. I have followed him from his old salon because I have never met a hair stylist before that I can be so comfortable with. He always comes up with some adorabale new style that has everyone complimenting me the next day.
