I LOVE coming to Richard Herrera! Kate is a hair wizard and knew exact,y what to do with my finicky hair from my first visit. Everyone at the salon is so friendly, and they have a great selection of products. Definitely recommend!
Richard Herrera Salon ROCKS! Everyone there is so nice and helpful! From the moment you are greeted through the time you pay for services, the experience is great! I have been going to Michael for many years and she is fantastic! I have difficult hair and she is never afraid to ask some of the other stylists for suggestions. When Michael is out of town, I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa who is just as great! The staff work so well together as a team and are always available to help each other out! I have recommended them to many friends!
I Love love Richard Herrera Salon. I've been going to Melissa M. for a couple years now, she does an amazing job and the hair products are phenomenal! Never disappointed!
I love Kate B. at RH, I decided to ombre my hair (the first time i have ever dyed my hair) and she did an amazing job and made me feel really comfortable. So much so, that i have gone back to her ever since to cut my hair. I am convinced she can do no wrong!
Excellent salon, friendly, and appointments are as booked. Michael does my hair on a regular basis and is always able to know what I am wanting. She does an awesome job. Highly recommended.
Had an appointment with Melissa M and I have to say she did a great job on my hair color. She took her time listening to what I wanted and was able to translate that into a great hair color and style that looks fantastic. Richard Herrera has a very friendly and relaxed style. I highly recommended the salon and Melissa M.
I've been impressed with Richard Herrera About Hair since my first visit, 3.5 years ago. Michele is my stylist and I highly recommend her to the many women who comment on my hair. She's talented, personable, reliable and communicates extremely well with her clients. Bad hair days are a thing of the past!
I've had the opportunity to observe the other stylists in the salon and they all seem to be capable and creative.
This is not an inexpensive salon but the results are worth it.
I have been to Hickox, Edward Wadsworth, Magnum Opus and Evolution over the years. It seemed as though a stylist might do a great job on the color, but style not so great. Or, he might do a great cut, but the color was just not right. I decided to try the Richard Hererra Salon since it was close to my office and I had seen it for years. Melissa always does a great job on my color, and she and Raul have given me excellent cuts. They are both so very thoughtful when you visit, and have even tried to accommodate my busy schedule when I had to rush back to work. I am glad that I tried Richard Hererra; I don't know everyone there, but I am sure they are quality stylists, too.
This is an awesome salon. Go here for the best color/cut you'll find in Portland - and ask for Deborah. She's worked miracles on my hair. I feel like there's nothing she can't do (I have thick curly hair that's been three different colors since I started going to her). I've never had a cut I didn't like. Deborah really listens to what you want. She's smart, and cares a lot about giving you the cut/color you're looking for. I wish I knew more people in Portland who needed a stylist. You're missing out if you don't try this Salon, Deborah in particular.
I went To Richard Herrera to have my hair and make-up done for my wedding a few months ago, and boy was that a mistake. I came on time, thanked the stylists for helping me on my big day, and gave them a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like. It wasn't a hard style, so I hoped it would turn out alright. By the end, my hair looked flat, VERY messy, greasy, and definitely not like the picture that I gave to the hairdresser. I'm normally not the type to ask someone to do something multiple times, but I had to ask the hairstylist twice if she could do something else to make my hair look better. Both times, she reacted rudely and unprofessionally. In that department, I could've done my own hair for a cheaper price and a less hostile environment. And my hair never did turn out right, regardless of my constant pleas for a redo.
When I got to have my make-up done, it wasn't as bad. They did a good job. But, long story short, when a situation came up where I was emotionally distraught, the employee didn't say anything to me. She just coldly ran through her make-up routine with me and sent me to the cash register. I wasn't a bad customer, I had tried being friendly to the people who were helping me look good for my wedding day. But by the time I left, I felt like I'd been judged and denied by the popular girls cliche in high school. Coming here was the worst part of my wedding. And I definitely didn't feel welcome enough to come back.
One more comment as a side-note: although it was my wedding day and I went there specifically to get ready for it, I received no "congratulations" while I was there. Nothing. This detail doesn't bother me as much as the rest, but it still made me feel... neglected in a way. When I came out dressed in my wedding dress, they didn't say anything about how I looked or even a "good luck". All they said was "have a nice day" after my dad paid the $150 bill. I'm not angry at the people that worked with me or anything. I'm just sad that I didn't get to have that "princess" feeling as I got my hair and make-up done, like everyone said that I would. Like I said before, going here was definitely the most depressing part of my wedding day. I wouldn't encourage anyone to go here if they're looking for that same feeling.
