Ashley! Ashley! Ashley! – This place totally rocked my casbah! I heard some great things about Tiger Tiger from the buzz in my hood, decided to book myself a cut and color, and got the best coloring job and cut ever, seriously! Ashley was very detailed in her placement of my color and gave me a wicked awesome natural blonde with some pretty ashy panels for contrast. My cut is also equally as divine and is exactly what I asked for (I think she may have ESP).
The salon was also really nice. It was very pink but was not too strong in the feminine overtones. So men please don't fear the cute pink, sweet decorations. Also the shampoo and various other products she used smelled freakin' amazing. I will be coming here from now on. Listen to your friends and come here!
Sylist didn't listen to me – I'm new in town & thought this place looked adorable from the outside, so I scheduled an appointment for a haircut. My bob was way grown out and in desperate need of shaping. I told the stylist I was pretty open, except I did NOT want the front longer than the back. I had a picture of a prior haircut I liked that I showed her, as well.
She disregarded what I said & told me how she would need to cut into the back to keep it from being "too full", I don't have very thick hair, so I was puzzled. I reiterated that I didn't want the back shorter than the front, and she said that it wouldn't look shorter, it would just be shaped better. I felt uneasy with her explanation, but figured she was the trained professional. When she was finished I was shocked. The front was perfect and chin length, but the back was cut completely up to my hairline with even shorter layers above! That was the one thing I asked her NOT to do. I was upset, but being as it was so short there was no fixing it, other than growing it out. It was even worse once I washed it. I have a cowlick in the back right at my hair line, so I had to wrestle with a flat iron every morning for over a month to keep my hair from sticking straight out, until it grew out and was finally heavy enough to stay down on it's own.
It was a very disappointing experience. The front of my hair was so cute, the stylist obviously had some great skills, too bad her listening skills were so subpar. Needless to say I won't be back.
Ashley transformed me from beast to beauty! – As a recent transplant I had difficulty finding a place I trusted with my locks. I looked around on city search and was drawn to Tiger Tiger by the description of the intimate, cozy, and mod styled salon. They also carried Kevin Murphy, which I love!!!
Ashley was my stylist and she was rocked it out. She made me feel super comfortable and gave me the 5 star treatment! I left with a great Katie Holmes bob with some natural caramel highlights that looked so much like the photo I brought in. She even suggested this really adorable longer, sweepy bangg that really softens my face and makes me feel hot and sassy! *My husband agreed*
Kammie Lee ROCKS! – Kammie is, by far, the most amazing hair dresser I've EVER had. I've had great hair dressers in the past, but Kammie takes the cake. I always leave the salon looking like I'm on my way to a shampoo commercial. Thanks to her "hair magic," I actually get complimented on my hair by absolutely random strangers.
If you're looking for a hair dresser that will increase your "hot factor" by, minimum, 75%....call Kammie.
An Excellent Haircut by Kammie – I got my haircut by Kammie a few days ago and am very, very happy with it! I've searched the Portland area for some time and have tried several salons in a frustrating quest to find a great hairdresser. Well, my quest has ended because I finally found the hairdresser for me!! I'm very particular about my hair and the way the ends are cut - it's wavy and curly and needs to be cut in a certain tecnique to bring out the natual curl and wave. Kammie listened to me and my needs; she took her time and cut my hair with perfection; she gave me more style in my haircut than I've had in a long time. I can just wash and wear my hair without putting much time and effort into it and it looks GREAT! I've already received complements on it. Kammie has all the characteristics of a great hairdresser - the ability to listen and understand the needs of the customer; along with the the knowledge, tecnique, and artistry needed to give a great haircut. Kammie is more than a hairdresser - she's a hair artist. I'm so glad to have found her through this site!!!
Great Cut – I have been going to the same stylist for years and have been "happy". A good friend, now I consider her a great friend, suggested I try her stylist. I think she was trying to tell me something...so I booked an appointment with Kammie. Kammie completely corrected my hair and actually layered it like I have asked to have done for years. She also colored my hair the perfect shade of red, which is not easy to do. I am not easy to please and I am 100% satisfied.
Leah Rocks!!!! – I have been going to Tiger Tiger for about about a year now, and I have to say that Leah is the most spectacular hair stylist I have ever had! She always knows just what to do with my cut and color, and every time I get my hair done I get a zillion compliments. The salon is fun and relaxing, and you can't go wrong with Leah!
awesome salon – I saw Kammie for the first time this week and she is amazing at cut and color. She took a lot of time to fix
my hair (from a previous salon) and she is great with color also. Im new to the area and am glad to
have finally found a great stylist. Yeah! I would highly recommemed her and the salon. Everyone seems good there.
Hair Therapy – My hair needed some help from a previous cut from else where, and Kammie knew exactly what needed to happen. "From here forward ,she is my hair therapist." She shaped me up pretty good. Before I was feeling dumpy, now I'm sassy. Roco
Best Salon & Stylist Ever! – If you are looking for a fun, laid-back salon with really nice and extremely talented stylists Tiger Tiger is the place for you!!!
If you have impossible hair but want highlights see Alisa. She is the owner of Tiger Tiger and she rocks. I have never had a better cut, style, or color. I highly recommend Alisa or any of the other stylists. You can only walk out with perfect hair.
