Bride to be :) – I did my hair and makeup trial with RH About Hair salon today and feel superbly confident in my salon choice.
The atmosphere was wonderful, asthetically pleasing as well as clean and well organized. The stylists were friendly and patient and worked with me and the pictures I brought in for inspiration to create a unique look for me.
They also did a trial with my mother in law (who is a total novice when it comes to hair and makeup and wanted a test run) and she looks beautiful! They also listened to things she said about her hair and politely and smoothly (no pushy sales techniques) talked her into a hair trim appt for the following week.
They were fast but it didn't effect the quality. I was concerned about getting out on time on my big day and those worries have been erased. I look and feel gorgeous and look forward to visiting again!
I feel like a model when I walk out – I gave Richard Herrera About Hair a try, as I just moved into the city about a year ago, and didn't have a salon lined up. I saw Nate and basically let him have artistic license with my long hair. He transformed me with beautiful color, weaved highlights and sculpted my one length long hair into a beautiful bouncy long layered "grown up" look. I'm hooked! Nate is my man from now on, and having been back to see him 3 times now, he continues to create a masterpiece each time. For me, it's a little on the spendy side, but that is coming from someone that used to cut and color her own hair. Spending $150+ every 3 months isn't that bad.
What I had hoped for . . . – I choose ABOUT HAIR and Richard very specifically - I wanted a great cut - classic - not cutting edge.
After Richard listened to a diatribe about what I wanted and saw several pictures that I brought, he basically told me to relax and assured me that he knew what to do with my hair.
I didn't get a hair cut - I got a hair sculpt. Richard cut into my waves and curls, taming them with a scissor instead of gels etc. He cut off the extra weight of my very thick hair and framed my face with a great, easy to care for style.
The cost was reasonable, certainly worth every penny to walk out of the salon happy.
Beautiful inpatients – I arrived early. As I was walking in, I noticed some beautiful flowers and a gentleman looking at them. We struck up a conversation. It turns out, he was Richard Herrara. He was absolutely charming.
I was having hair and make-up done for a photo. The best compliment I was paid all day was when my son's 12-year-old friend said "you look different today - in a good way!" Thanks Michele (I'm not sure about the spelling)!
A lovely salon - highly recommended.
Worth the Trip to Downtown – I tried a salon closer to my home for a quick trim and quickly remembered why I love ALL my hair services at RH. Not only would I not trust my color to anyone else, but the staff at RH is so professional...and if you've been disappointed by one of those salons that has chatty, bad-mouthed staff that never improved their social skills past middle school, you'll appreciate the upscale, confident treatment you'll receive at Richard Herrera About Hair.
Worth the try!!! – They are great for a busy schedule. I always get in when I need to. I have gone to a few different girls and they all were friendly and listened to what I was looking for. They all got my hair JUST the right color. That is the reason I left other salons, they just couldn't get it right. From the second you walk in the door they grab your purse and are handed a robe. Makes you feel very pampered, but without the price of a spa!
It is easy to find off the freeway so you don't have to get lost downtown! I have sent a lot of my friends here and will continue to do so!!!
Oh and the best part is when they shampoo you! Talk about heaven. They take their time and even massage your neck!
Best Salon Around.. HANDS DOWN! – AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!
This is the best salon I have ever been to, everyone was all smiles and very helpful. I was greeted when I walked in by these really ADORABLE girls who had great style and looked totally chic. Their hair was very exceptional and makeup was done so nicely I wanted a replica for my evening out on the town! Well they always offer me a beverage and ask me about my day! My stylist is fantastic, she knows just what I want every time, and I know when she is gone I can see other stylists too, They are all so great and holy holy let me tell you about the shampoos all with a mini massage, ahhhh A nice way to end the week wouldnt you say? AMAZING your hair will feel like silk. I love this place.
Worst salon in Portland – I went here a while back to have an updo done and received the worst service I have ever experienced at a salon. First, the stylist I had scheduled my updo with did not get her prior appointment done before I arrived. Apparently, the customer didn't like her updo so the stylist kept redoing it - cutting into my appointment time. Then, after an hour of waiting they finally said that the stylist I booked my appointment with didn't have time to do my hair so one of their apprentices was going to do my hair. She did an okay job but it came out halfway through the night. No one apologized for the poor service, not even the stylist I had booked my appointment with. They also charged me full price for the updo I had done by a stylist in training which was ridiculous. I will never go back to this salon again. Their service is terrible and they treat their customers like trash.
BEST SERVICE EVER!!!!!!! LIKE WOW!!!!!! – I have seen just about everyone of the stylists here, and I am happy to say I enjoyed every single experience I have ever had there. From the moment I walked in smiling faces greet me, the gals that work the front desk are always chipper and eager to please, offering me a beverage, striking up good conversation. I never wait too long for the stylist I am scheduled to see,They always seem excited about thier work, offering up new ideas and solutions to help my problem hair!, all my hair worries are pushed aside now, they are awesome! I love this salon I wont every stray! great service, great prices, great atmosphere. If you get a chance see Colleen she is a delight!
tanya is awesome! – this is a great salon in every way! i love tanya! she has changed my hair in every way. when i first started going to her, i hated my hair... after a year of loyalty to her, i absolutely love my look. so worth every dime. make sure you have some extra time because she is a perfectionist.
