Great experience. – Today was my second visit to Quint Eby. He has cut my hair twice and highlighted it once. I have been very happy with my services. I live upstairs so it is so convenient to have a nice salon in the building. He also does a wonderful head massage at the sink. He is fun to talk to and very sweet. I would highly recommend him.
Cool salon, cool peeps – I've been going to Quint Eby since they opened. My hair always looks awesome when I leave. This place isn't stuck up or TOO cool. It's layed back but very professional atmosphere. I love it there PLUS they have Pureology and Davines...animal/earth friendly and that's very cool. Thanks guys! :)
Two Thumbs Up! – Every experience I've had here has been amazing. True professionals who know what they are doing! And I love the feel of the place, it is nice and modern without being pretentious or fussy.
Best hair-dry ever! – I dropped in for an opportunistic wash and dry/style. Quint was able to help me and performed a small miracle on my hair.
Best Cuts and Service – Sometimes it is hard to get an appointment at Quint Eby because of my schedule. So, and I hate to say this, I just go to whoever has an opening at the time I need. I have never been disappointed with my haircut there. Everyone is so talented and friendly. I feel safe going to anyone there. I have had my hair cut by Kelly, David and Sabrina. I recommend all of them.
Awesome! – The minute you walk in the door you will be at ease...the atmosphere is really relaxing, the people are super friendly (the kind that remember your name), and of course the haircut is perfect. I leave the details up to the specialists and they do right by me everytime. I just show up and leave the rest to them!
Sabrina and Quint are the BEST! – I went to Quint Eby and got a great color and cut by Sabrina and Quint. Sabrina did my cut and Quint did my color. They are both extremely professional and highly trained. My color is vibrant and my cut accentuates my bone structure. I agree with the other reviews that stated what a wonderful salon this is. It does not have the LOUD Hip Hop music that rattles your nerves. It is cool and calming. The salon itself is open and quite lovely. Modern. It has excellent artwork on the walls. I could tell a lot of thought was put into the appeal of it's simplicity and clean lines. I felt very comfortable there. They also offered me a $5 Prebook Discount on my next service. I think that is a great offer because it reserved my time plus I save $$$. Plus, I just love my hair! I will be back. Thanks Sabrina and Quint.
Best Color Ever! – This salon is like what I am used to in L.A.! It has a downtown feel AND a neighborhood feel. Prices were moderate to high. Service was EXCELLENT. I brought my dog, Baby, and even she was welcome! I saw the dog treats in the window and thought it would be OK if I brought my Baby. She likes it there too! I'm glad Quint didn't bring his dog that day though! LOL
I moved to downtown Seattle from L.A. about a 3 years ago. Seattle is the hardest place to find a good colorist. I searched and searched for that perfect foil. I tried every top salon you can think of in this TINY city until one night I met Quint at a Birthday Party for a mutual friend. He told me about his salon in Belltown and the services they offer there. He was so sweet. He gave me his card and I called him in like a month. When I arrived at the salon he totally remembered me! I knew he would do a great job because I also met one of his clients at the party too and her hair was VERY pretty and the perfect shade of blonde. The one I like.
The receptionist had me change into a robe and offered me a glass of wine while I relaxed in the waiting area. Quint escorted me back to his station himself and I got a consul. He knew exactly what I was talking about and mixed up my secret formula. He was so fast, efficient and friendly. We had a lot to talk about. He knows whats up in Belltown. He processed my color until it was perfect and then did the most incredible shampoo and scalp massage I have ever experienced. We also did a gloss for added shine.
The end result was the most beautiful color I have ever had and I mean EVER. It is just what I wanted. Quint is the best. I hope this review helps you to decide to go there. I think you will like it there too. :)
Urban distinction – If you want to know whats going on in Seattle GO TO THIS SALON! I went in to see Quint Eby himself for highlights and he made a shade of blonde especially for me. The result is beautiful. Nobody ever did my color this nice before. After we dished the dirt, I got a heads up on where to go in Belltown. I cant stay at home when I look this good! j/k "No, love YOU!" haha Quint will get it if he ever reads this. His place is cool yet calm and serene. Relaxing. Great music. Organic coffee. Japanese Green Tea. ..and yes...the nectar of the Gods...WINE! Nice. It's a neighborhood salon that just happens to be in a prestigious neighborhood...BELLTOWN.
Best Cut Ever - go to Toyo, the best !!!! – Quint Eby Salon is everything everyone says about it and more. A wonderful, quiet oasis with superb professionals (and the very nicest people). Toyo is an AWESOME talented stylist at this terrific salon! I'll bet his color is just as suberb as his cuts are. Every few months I come into Seattle on business from Texas and always visit the wonderful folks at Ottica for my glasses. June trip I was complaining so much about the really awful cut and color I had gotten in Austin, that they got on the phone and made me an appointment for a cut with Toyo, an amazing!!!!! wizard with scissors. After over 15 minutes of analyzing my hair, face shape, body type, and overall look, Toyo spent an hour and 1/2 very precisely dry (yes dry) cutting of my crazy curly/wavy hair and produced a versatile look that I can style casually or more finished. The shampoo and head massage were a revelation and the styling tips Toyo gave me as he finished my hair were the best I've ever gotten. The best thing: this cut works as well in the hot humidity of Texas as it did in the cool damp of Seattle. Finally, hair I can travel with without tons of product and tools, and I don't dread what my hair will look like each day - every single day I get compliments on my cut. Just yesterday, having not even combed my hair after spending 3 hours doing Pilates and yoga, 2 women stopped me in the grocery store to ask me where I get my hair cut! One of them was planning a trip to Seattle so I gave her Toyo's card, the other was very dissappointed as there are no stylists and no salons comparable in Austin (just shops that do variations on big Texas highlighted and straightened hair). P.S. Don't worry about a language barrier with Toyo. Unfortunately I don't speak Japanese but that doesn't matter, Toyo knows what is the best look for each individual and is excellent at teaching you how to style when you aren't at the salon. It's a long distance to go for a great cut by an artist but worth it!!
