Complimentary Clear Hair Gloss
The MOST AMAZING hair color I have ever received! After a nightmare experience at the salon I normally go to, I went to Paul in hopes of having my orange-green hair fixed. He completely exceeded my expectations! Paul spent almost 4 hours with me, making sure that each and every mistake my former hairdresser had made was corrected. I absolutely LOVE my hair now! The color is rich and has dimension... the brassy orange hue is 100 % gone! Paul is truly the most talented and devoted hair stylist I have ever met, and he transformed my "ruined" hair into a stunning masterpiece. If you have ANY sort of coloring or highlighting need, Paul is definitely the person you want to see!
INCREDIBLE! I hope Paul never leaves because it's taken me 18 years in Portland to find him! I've been to many 'good' salons: Blades, Tribe, Ward Stroud, on and on, but have not been happy with the cuts and color I've received, until now. I love my color and it lasts! Most amazing: Paul took a really terrible cut and transformed it into exactly what I wanted, in one appointment and without cutting my hair too short. I don't know how he did it. I've never taken the time to write a review of any business before but I'm elated with Blue Chair Salon. It gets my highest recommendation!
Great Salon - Paul is the best – Wonderful salon - accommodating and thoughtful . I've been going to Paul 5 years for cut and color. He's great.
No so great! – I made an appointment online, the next day I got a call from Ashley sayin I needed to rescheule . Ahsley told me the lady who had an appoinment before me scheduled online incorrectly therefore instead of rescheduling the lady who booked wrong Ashley made me reschedule. I did agree to come in at a different time as I still wanted to give the place a chance. I was the last appointment of the day and they acted I was inconveniencing them even though they rescheduled me. My haircut took a total of 15 minutes and was a trim even though I told Paul exactly what I asked for. I even showed a picture to Paul of how I wanted my bangs and walked out with completely uneven/chopped bangs. I will not be returning to this place nor will I recommend this place to anyone.
I am sorry you you feel this ,you booked a dry cut ,and did not want much cut because you you like your hair long. I did not know you wanted more cut .I would be glad to have a look at your hair and adjust it .i have money back policy ,and if you think its that bad ,will gladly give you your money back .
Great Cut & Color! – I recently had my hair cut and colored by Paul. He gave me a great cut and corrected my color so that it looks more natural. My husband was pleased! Paul provided me with tips on how to style my hair at home and suggested a nice lip and cheek color.
Paul is very knowledgeable and progressive. I plan to be a loyal customer!
No more $10-20 cuts for me! Ever. – My bad! I previously mistakenly believed that a hair-cutter simply cuts hair, and that a $10-20 haircut is as good as a $50-60 haircut at a prestigious address. I was WRONG!
I honestly regret that waited until I am in my 50's to get great haircuts. I have been to Paul twice, and I L-O-V-E my haircut, every day, for the first time in my life. I am starting to like looking at myself in the mirror. The haircuts have prompted me to begin to take care of myself in other ways too!
I see Paul as a master artisan stylist. I plan to get all my hairstyling needs from Paul at Blue Chair Salon. Discover the difference yourself!
REVIEWS FOR BLUE CHAIR SALON – I have only had my hair cut 3 times in my life before I met Paul on 23rd St . All 3 times were a disaster.
I walked into Paul's Salon on 23rd St. with hair past my bum. I told Paul about my past experiences and also mentioned that my husband loved long hair, but, my kids kept telling me that I needed to do something with it. He suggested a few things and I agree'd. He cut my hair to the middle of my back and gave a lift with highlights. I went home my husband just smiled and my kids loved it. I have since went back several times and brought both son's, husband and daughter. They all are never disappointed with their hair when they leave Paul's Salon.
My hair is now chin length and my husband is still pleased with my hair. I always get comments from others and I always feel my time and money is well spent when Paul colors and styles my hair. I have never been disappointed with him.
I followed him to his own Salon "The Blue Chair" and tell anyone I can what kind of work he does. I know he takes pride in the work he does. It is like a picture that he is painting.
The Only One I Trust – Lets just say I first saw Paul when I was 19. I'm going on 28 now and I still have not found anyone who can primp my hair the way he does.
I came with my mom to the Uptown Salon 2002-03 Although I did not have an official appointment, Paul fit me into his schedule. He transformed my bleach blonde-grown out roots into a beautiful auburn color. I could not believe it. I just picked out a picture of a girl advertising some shampoo and he pulled that same color on mine. I was amazed.The color looked natural. My hair;healthy.
Some go by the name of the salon itself. I realized when I returned to the same salon a couple years later and Paul no longer worked there; although they were nice. The results were not the same.
I last saw Paul in Febuary 09. This time my hair had grown out to the dirty dishwasher blonde it normally is. I was debating on what I wanted. A cut, a color? I gave Paul some ideas I had and again;he performed magic. He gave me bangs, layers and two daring colors I would have never chose, but I loved it!
There is no limit on what Paul can do.
Paul does hair like its an art. Every appointment he puts his heart and soul into that person. That hour and half you spend his Blue Chair; YOU are his focus.
I leave feeling pampered and beautiful every time and I have no doubt anyone he sees will feel the exact same way. I have spoken highly of Paul since that first day I met him.
Having his salon located just blocks from 23rd in Portland, is a bonus.
Paul is authentic and his skills unique. I have never been more satisfied with my hair than I have been with Paul.
Thank you so much!
FABULOUS hair – Paul has exceptional skill and makes my hair look FABULOUS!! I am always happy with the result, he is consistent -- if I want the same look each time I get it -- and when I was ready for a change he listened and followed through. Paul is friendly and genuine, and you can tell he really loves his industry. He is meticulous and detailed, giving 100%. His cutting skills are highly advanced, as is his beautiful color. Thank you Paul !
Amazing! – Just what i had been looking for a proffessional salon (the owner has over 30 yrs exp.) without all the pretention of your typical upscale portland salon. I had heard about them from a friend and decided to try them out, boy am i glad i did! I came to him with a horrible color job i had paid too much for at a pricy well known salon downtown. Paul(the owner and main stylist) knew exactly what tones to add to create a flattering color that i am constantly recieving compliments for. He was very fair and generous with his time, qualities which are sometimes very hard to find.I was told my hair would have to be stripped-which is extremely damaging- to achieve the color i wanted but paul was able to mix a beautiful color that was exactly what i wanted and after using a 4 part treatment system at no extra charge i left there with hair that has NEVER looked or felt better.
