kristina is the best hairstylist, hair colorist, extension expert.....I have been going to kristina for a few years now and i always get a newl look and love it . I have been any color from blonde to almost black and always loved it. every time i try and do my hair at home she does amazing color correction for me. she never cuts too much.
This last appointment she added a few extension pieces to make my hair thicker and now im addicted. Ive never thought my hair could look better then it already felt. i loive my new hair...well i guess its mine since i bought it. hahahaha
Carrie is Amazing!! – I have been going to Carrie for several years now. She is absolutely wonderful with blonde highlights!! I have followed Carrie to several salons throughout her career, and in truth, tried someone else that was closer to my home - with disastrous results. I always leave appointments with Carrie with a cut and/or color that I love. Carrie is truly an artist with blonde hair!
She sure is! Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It is clients like you who make our job so much fun!
Best Salon in Pdx and Coolest People! – I love Alist. Nadine has done my hair there for years. I had a series of unfortunate hair events due to bad coloring, and then the attempts to fix it. Needless to say, I was a bit worried about choosing a hairdresser. I saw another of Nadine's clients and her hair looked perfect. She recommended Nadine and I have never looked back. She's the best! We work together to come up with styles that work for me. She knows how worried I can get about trying something new, and she doesn't force anything on me that isn't my style or in my comfort zone. And the other salon artists are all really cool and fun to chat with while I'm doing my hair. Their customers seem pretty satisfied as well. The prices are affordable, the location is central, the staff is friendly, and the services are top-notch. What more could you want from a salon?
Kristina and A-List Hair Salon are tops! – I have been a client of Kristina for a few years now and this is the third salon that I have followed her. Kristina does an outstanding job on my hair and is very personable. I also like the environment at A-List Hair Salon.
Amazing Hair salon – What a wonderful experience. The girls at A-list really know what they are doing. You can show up with horrible color issues and feel like a million bucks when you leave. The environment is really nice and the services are quick! I absolutely reccomend Sara. I constantly get asked where i get my hair done and have sent all my friends. Go to A-list!!
Went shopping to Dunedin to cute little shops like Darling Memories,Amanda Austin and Rose Garden. Everyone in these shope were nice and welcoming. I wanted to end my shopping experience with a nice cup of Java.
Whe I walked to Cappucino's Bakery...I saw a couple of customers and once person working behind the counter so I decided to sit and but my bags down. When I sat on the counter...the lady working there didn't aknowledge me but I figure she was alone so I didn't take it personally. Since I really was craving my cup of Java I decided to patiently wait. After taking the order from customers she went to the back and dissapeared for 20 minutes.
At this point I really needed to go to the bathroom. When she came of to serve the people I asked if she can buzz me to the bathroom and she ignored me. I asked again and she SHOUTED at me and I saw a mean lady looking at me. She yelled"don't you see that I'm working alone here...if you need a public bathroom there's one around the corner". I metioned to her that I was a potential customer and I have been patient by waiting 20 minutes and she didn't have to yell at me and send me to a public bathroom. I've had my bags here and that she shouldn't abuse me for no reason.
After that...she yelled at me again and told me that I should leave her shop. SHe mentioned that she was the owne and I was shocked and couldn't believe that she was being so cruel to me for no apparent reason. She basically was taking out her job or personal frustrations on me. I was really shocked and like any women with some integrity I defended my case....and tol her that she was very cruel and bitter and that this is no way to treat a customer who has been patiently waiting. She then did the ultimate...she called the cops so they can escort me for no reason. Since it was so unfair...I figured I would wait and explain my side of the story to the cops...that I was basically waiting 20 minutes for a cup of Java and to use the bathroom and this lady was just cruel with me for no apparent cause...just being abusive towards me from her personal frustrations.
I decided to leaven and not let her ruin the wonderful experience I had with other merchant owners in the area. I saw her as being cruel, catty and bitter and left without take in it personally.
I have travelle all over the world and come from a family of restaurant owners and I ive that the owner of Cappuccino's Bakery a 0 out of 10 rating for cruelty, abuse, and and hateful energy. Have a spirit lady...it's Xmas. She is a lady Scroodge.
If you are visiting Dunedin...stay away if you are happy, attractive and fairly young because this witch will hate on you and give you ill treatment. She represents the haters of the world who hate the happy, sexy, beautiful and cheerful young women. STAY AWAY from the abuse. Oh by the way I saw she did the same to a customer on a Yahoo Travel Review....this MErchant will give Dunedin a bad name.
This sounds just Horrible! Unfortunatley, you posted this to the wrong merchant. We are A-List Hair Studio. I will let the City Search Team know to change it to the correct merchant. Good luck to you.
Better than NYC – I live in NYC but am a Portland native and travel back home at least once a year, hopefully twice a year. Everytime I come to Portland I must make a stop at A-List to see Sarah Cavenah. She does an excellent job on my hair, in fact a better job on my hair than anyone in NYC. In fact, I often suffer thru the roots just to avoid getting my hair done in NYC so I can be sure to stop at A-List.
So worth it, I travel 750 miles to get it done! – Having moved away from the Portland area over 15 years ago I have experienced first hand the absolutely astonishing prices, uptight stylists and overall lack of ability that salons in the Bay Area offer. A few years back my mom was looking for a stylist and found Sarah Cavenah. She took care of my mom and now not only does my moms hair, but also my two sisters and even my brother. I travel all the way from San Francisco to get mine done, I can't bear to let anyone else touch my hair. I have never had a problem with my color and the cut is always just right. A-list has a nice and friendly staff and I always leave feeling refreshed and looking forward to my next appointment!
We Love this!!! People like you make what we do so fulfilling! Sarah is smiling ear to ear.
Kristina is awesome!!! – I'm picky with my hair stylist, and have had many disappointments over the years... A friend referred me to Kristina and I have been going to her ever since! She does wonders with my hair, and she's always got a smile on her face and a very cheerful disposition!
THE PERFECT PAIRING: A wonderful salon & amazing stylist! – I almost hate giving away the name of my AMAZING stylist and the salon I go to because that might mean it'll be more difficult to get in to see her, but I'll share anyway. ;) Carrie Ferguson has been my go-to hair guru for nearly 5 years now and she always does a fantastic job. I also look forward to our monthly talks... she's so much fun! I am nearly completely gray now *sigh*, but she helps me keep my secret and does a beautiful job maintaining my auburn locks. She also cuts and styles me perfectly. As for the salon... I love it! A chic loft in the Pearl District. I'm always offered a glass of wine or coffee when I arrive and I LOVE the products they sell! If you're looking for a change and fed up with your current stylist - go to Carrie at A-List!
