Beware of the Groupon!
Inquiry into a discount may result in a classic "bait and switch". Unfortunately that is what happened to my wife this last week. My wife was dumped off onto an incompetent trainee and left unsupervised after hours. It wasn't until 2 hours into what was supposed to be a simple cut and die job that she found out that the person cutting her hair (Tomarra) didn't even have a chair at Allure and that she was an apprentice being allowed to practice hair styling on my wife.
As you can imagine, things didn't turn out so good. My wife, who is stunningly attractive, brought pictures into show the stylist what she wanted which was a blonde pixie cut with swept bangs. She wound up with ORANGE HAIR and a PARTIALLY SHAVED HEAD. She was devastated. I was left in complete shock. It was the craziest thing either of us had ever seen.
It seems Allure thinks it is good business practice to advertise their services at a discount and then allow someone who doesn't know what the hell they are doing to cut and dye hair. I certainly complained. This is the first response I got;
"First I'm sorry to hear that your wife wasn't happy with her service.
Tomarra is a junior stylist still in training, which is why she was
consulting with me. This was definitely a drastic change from such a
long hair style to a short pixie. This can be stressful for anyone,
with such a big change. The point of Groupons or in salon discounts is
for stylists to work with clients and hopefully meet their expectation."
You better believe we asked for a full refund. Amani Anderson lacks any kind of professional courtesy because she refused to refund us. The only thing she was willing to do was bring my wife back in and "assess" what could be done if anything to fix my wifes partially shaven, orange head. As you can imagine my wife said there was no way in hell she was setting foot back in Allure. If after reading this you still think it is a good idea to set foot in Allure Salon and you find yourself with a "stylist" named Tomarra, run. Don't walk, RUN.
Excellent Salon, Awesome Haircut!! – Glad I stopped in to this salon it has a very welcoming atmosphere. The stylist are all very nice and personable, not to mention I got a great haircut I will defiantly be a repeat customer.
AMAZING! – The girls at the Allure are great! I love the atmosphere in the salon... Every time I go they educate me about new styles and always walk me through styles I can maintain myself... I appreciate their professional input about my hair and style, I know that they keep my best interest in mind. My hair looks great everytime and when I leave the salon I feel confident and get tons of compliments on my new style!
FUN SALON – This Salon has alot of energy and a very friendly setting. My stylist was amazing, thank you Lindsey! I've had more compliments from this haircut, it fits my face perfect. I highly recommend this Salon!
Best Salon in Seattle – I can't tell you how much I love spending my day at the Allure Salon. I have a lot of hair which means I have to spend a long time in the chair. When I go to Allure I feel pampered like a star. The staff is beyond friendly and amazing at what they do. I get compliments evryday on my hair color and style. I am hooked... If you are looking for a fun place to update your style stop into Allure they will take great care of you. Thank you Teresa I Love my hair!!!
Best ambience, Best Stylists – You walk in and immediately fall in love with the decor, and then you get genuinely nice smiles as greetings, so you feel welcome and comfortable. Teresa has been amazing in taming and styling my unruly hair, and now I love it! I get compliments all the time, and it is all due to her! I would definitely recommend this salon and will be returning to Teresa. Also, they have great product for purchase (Bumble and Bumble!, and more!)
Good place for a guy to get a haircut – I have had a hard time finding a place that I liked getting my hair cut since moving to Seattle in '04. Being a guy, it can be hard to find the right place where you can get a good haircut and you feel comfortable. It has a cool vibe. Good music, comfortable chairs, and quality hair cuts. I have curly hair and if it does not get cut right it can be a disaster. I have been going to Allure for almost a year and have been happy with every cut so far. That says a lot. (The chicks there are hot too - another big plus)
You must go here! – Michelle is my hairdresser and she's the best I've ever had. Not only do I always walk away happy with my cut and colors but she's just always so upbeat. If you're having a bad day, she'll cheer you up and make you look great. The Salon itself is very comfortable and has a great vibe. Everyone I've come into contact with that works there has always been very accommodating and friendly. Go there!
Best Salon Ever!! – Allure Salon won me over! Whether I've gone in for a trim, new style or on my wedding day [what an amazing time!!] I am absolutely pampered and feel like I'm a VIP. All the stylists are so friendly and the atmosphere is unparalleled. I love that you can see the hype of BellTown while you're made to look your best! I recommend Allure Salon to everyone, especially those who want to feel amazing on the inside while they get their outside styled to perfection!
