Been all over the place having my hair worked over and have finally found a hair home. Everyone there is talented and professional, but my go to girl is Melissa! Added bonus she caters to myhair neurosis with patience... You are in good hands there and the entertainment street side makes the trip even more worthwhile!
Tessa is a Miracle Workers! – After decades of altering my looks to meet the demands of my job, I semi-retired. I went into the Bob Shop entirely by chance and met Tessa. She took one look and then worked miracles. She was able to take everything I had left after years of neglect and make me actually look pretty. It is like being reborn! Thank you!!
Great Stylist...and I'm a happy girl! – I came to the Bob Shop on a recommendation from a friend. Having not had the best previous experiences with hairstylists in Portland, I was a little nervous. But upon walking in, I was immediately put at ease by the friendly front desk girls. My Stylist, Melissa, was fantastic! She was great at listening to what I needed and gave great advice when it came to taming my unruly mane! I walked in "just ok" hair...and left looking like I stepped out of a fashion magazine! I look and feel amazing! My color turned out more beautiful than I could have ever asked for, and my cut is easy to style! Thank you so much, Melissa! There are no doubts that I will be returning! Happy Happy Girl!
Fantastic Hair, People and STYLE! – The Bob Shop is really fabulous! It's beautiful, professional, pleasant atmosphere, great service...loved it! April was my stylist and she was really amazing. She listened to what I wanted, created the most beautiful highlights and the cut was exactly what I was looking for...which isn't easy when you have long curly, unmanageable hair! She also suggested some fabulous products for my curly hair that remoisturized it, made to easier to style and smelled delicious!!
Thank you Bob Shop and April!! I will certainly be back!
Very Professional – I love going to get my hair done at The Bob Shop, April my stylist has never done me wrong and her professional and kind personality makes it even better. I am growing my hair out and love layers and a flat iron and every time I leave my hair flows like silk. She is incredible!
I LOOK MARVELOUS - – I have the greatest stylist, Melissa Styles, who has done my hair for years! She always listens to exactly what I want - and the styles and colors are always so much better than I expected. If you want to look and feel like a million bucks - try Melissa Styles - you will be so happy you did!
Reliable, attentive and skilled service, APRIL is terrific – I have been going to the Bob Shop for over 20 years, believe it or not. How many businesses STAY in the same place for so long? or even stay open? What this means is success through reliable, quality services. April is my hairdresser par excellence. If I had an airplane, entourage, and performances to give, April would go with me. As it is, I work from home, so don't need the plane, but see April every 6 weeks for hair color and cut. She has given me a youthful styling, with great results to the color challenges of turning gray and white hair to blond with red highlights. Very reasonable rates. I get many compliments on the cut and the color. Thank you, April, for taking care of my head!
Melissa . . .Mmm NOT so good afterall – Recently I had an appointment with a stylist named Melissa, who I was told had an availability and could get me in right away. I now know why she had availability, she's obviously inexperienced and does not have clients. When I got an appointment I assumed that I would be getting a top notch stylist who would give me what people come to expect from The Bob Shop - Great Hair, Amazing Talent, Professional Attire and Exceptional Customer Service, However I received NON OF IT! I asked for simple layering in my haircut and advice on what to do for my color. I left with big gaps in the layers and what looked like someone had hacked away at my bangs. In the beginning we talked about color and I knew something was wrong when she gave me advice that was exactly the opposite of what every other stylist had given me before so I decided to just have her do the haircut. I will Never go back to the Bob Shop again, its disappointing 'cause so many friends have said nice and wonderful things about this salon, they've obviously been to other stylists there who know what their doing. I was way too shocked and embarrassed to complain right then because she seemed really frustrated when I questioned her about the cut. In the end I went to another reputable salon and had it fixed, they told me i should at the least call the manager and complain.
Letter to Owner of Bob Shop to follow.
Love, Love, Love Melissa – I have been a loyal client of Melissa's for quite some time and have followed her now to The Bob Shop! I just wanted to let all of you know that she is an amazing stylist! She always makes me look fabulous and is very attentive when it comes to listening to my needs and concerns! Since I've been with her my color has never been more beautiful and my haircut is always easy for me to style and maintain!
The Bob Shop is great, as well! Reception is always positive and polite, and the salon has a great vibe and team atmosphere! I love Melissa and I love it here, too! So, if you aren't yet a follower, better get on board!
Thanks, Melissa....see you soon!
William is amazing! – What he did to my hair bagged me a six-figure keeper who never said a WORD to me before! I couldn't believe it! I get compliments on my hair from complete strangers, so of course I have to tell them about William-carry his cards with me, next to mine :)
