Why people love us

  • I always have the best experience with hair stylist Stephanie. She listens to the clients desires, and has a lot of creative vision of her own. From cutting, to coloring, to styling, I give her a strong 10/10. She'll also send you home with great at-home hair care tips to keep your hair looking salon styled every day. Also, there's complimentary wine (and other drinks)!

  • A beautiful salon in NW PDX. The owners are amazing and so knowledgeable about hair and color and products. I've been seeing Courtney for a long time and always come away with a wonderful cut that makes me feel like a trillion bucks. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Did I mention they have a La Croix filled fridge!?!
