Love my haircut..... – I needed a new salon, so I chose one in West Seattle. Luckily It was Pinup, and adorable tiny salon on Harbor Drive. Madison did my hair, and she really listened. I was so tired of my long wavy hair and ready for an easy shorter style. This is the best cut I've had in years. It's been over a month and it looks like it was cut yesterday.
I also wanted to change the color and she was great with that, too. She picked color that looked so natural with my skin tone, and brightened up my face. After a month the color still looks fresh and crisp.
Lastly, I was looking for new hair products and the Loma Pearatin and AG products Madison used on me are super. They helped keep the color from fading and my hair is super manageable and shiny, and best of all not greasy. Plus they protected my hair from damage by my blow dryer and flat iron.
I highly recommend Madison, and the Pinup Salon. They have great deals on Facebook so remember to like them before you book your appointment.
Great Color, Awful Cut – I'm a curly, wavy blonde who heard Pinup was a good West Seattle salon. I love the pinup girl style and appreciated being able to book an appointment by email.
The stylist I saw did a great job listening to what I wanted for color and delivered on her word.
The cut felt like an after-thought. She said she'd studied curly hair and did a great job with the color. So I thought it was ok until the next day I washed and dried my hair - I ended up with two puffy clumps of hair around my face.
In my email I had requested a brow wax, but they didn't seem to have that set-up in the salon, and no mention was made of that part of my service request.
Ultimately I want a salon where I can get expert care in all three departments: cut, color, brow waxing. I would highly recommend pinup for color, but leave the cutting to someone else.
Super happy with the service – I found this place through a Groupon deal, and have been back several times. I thought I'd go back to the hairstylist, I'd been going to, but Ronda has a way with my hair. I've been over the moon each and every time.
The shop is super cute. And I love the coffee stand that right outside of the front door.
Not worth the hassle! – Make a long story short...i bought a groupon to receive hair services from this salon w/o doing my proper research. To say the least, my hair turned out orange with blonde pieces when it was suppose to be a caramel brown full foil. Jennifer, the owner, refused me a redo, without me first paying $30 for the product charge, hence, let me remind you that my hair was ORANGE. She then proceeds to complain to me on the phone how groupon customers were demanding, how she's lost so much money on the groupons, and then blamed me for my hair turning out the way it did. She would not make me happy as the customer and did not even stop through her ranting and raving so that i could explain my situation until i asked her if i could talk now. Horrible business owner...one piece of advice, don't advertise on groupon and then complain about it. I tipped my stylist 20% of the $140 so there was no way i was being cheap even though i was disgusted by the color. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!!!
Super cute salon on Alki does great work too! – I went there on a Groupon deal and will definitely go back. I had terrible service at Shanti Salon in West Seattle and was in search of a new place to patronize. Rhonda, the stylist, was great -did beautiful color and a quick trim. The salon in small, but super quaint -AND Rhonda says they'll provide wine if you come by in the evening! Now that's service!!
Great Wedding Hair & Makeup! – On my wedding day last month, Jen traveled to my mom's home in Puyallup to do my hair, makeup and the hair for 4 of my bridesmaids. I've been going to Jen to have my hair done for the last couple years and was pleasantly surprised to learn that she's a great makeup artist as well! She did an amazing job and my friends and I were all very happy with her work. I'd highly recommend Jen for any wedding or event hair and makeup. And it's definitely a bonus that she's willing to drive almost anywhere. That bit of convenience on my wedding day was invaluable.
Keratin Treatment is Great – Found Jen and Pinup Salon based on reviews here on Citysearch. Another hairdresser had recommended I try a keratin treatment to get rid of frizz. Jen promptly scheduled an appointment and made sure I knew what to expect (and not expect) from the treatment. Jen was easy to talk to, her salon is nicely done, and the result was amazing. Silky smooth hair, no trace of frizz, and easy to manage. Will continue going to Pinup.
The Best Salon Experience I've had in Seattle!! – Pinup Salon offers a unique one-on-one salone experience. I felt I could sit back, relax, and have a great cut/color without the hassle and the pretentious attitudes that come with most Seattle salons. Jen took the time to listen to what I was looking for, what styles I’ve had in the past, and the vision I have of my hair for the future. She was able to give me exactly what I want. (And ladies, you know that’s not easy to find!)
Another big plus for me is that they’re open 7 days a week. It’s been so easy to find a time that works with my busy schedule. I'm so glad I’ve found this place!
P.S. I love the space she’s in - absolutely adorable and intimate!
not impressed – I had been coloring my hair black for years, and I wanted a change. after a few emails back an forth, I was confident Jen could solve the problem. I knew it would not be an easy task, but she seemed sure she could do it in my price range and without bleach. after 8 hours and not much change in the color, I was charged more than we talked about, she had resorted to bleaching, and I still had to come back 2 days later for more 'processing' by another stylist! needless to say, months later I am still growing out the mess.
Fantastic Haircuts for Guys! – I have pretty simple hair and usually go to SuperCuts, but I was blown away when I tried Jen's salon. It is a cool, relaxing spot to get a haircut and Jen does a great job asking questions and making sure she cuts your hair just right. I would highly recommend Pinup Salon for guys or anyone needing a quality haircut!
