Unfortunately, I have to agree. A good friend of mine has been having an awful time at the academy. My friend experienced discrimination & harassment not only from classmates, but from the educator as well. Something needs to be done about

Terrible, terrible. My hair was 1-2 inches longer on one side -everyone at work commented and when I went back for a fix they ALL pretended it was fine. Once I had a foil and they went to color bar 6-7 times to refill, charging every time. It ended up costing more than a fine salon and the color was taken out too early and I left with bright yellow hair and an enormous bill with the staff denying it was done wrong. I actually gave this place more than one chance. Know it is NOT cheaper in the long run and they will not own up to bad work.

I've been getting my hair done here for about a year. I have always been treated well and enjoyed my experiences. All procedures are done under the watchful eyes of instructors who will fix anything that needs it. I have recently

Pros: Inexpensive cuts, colors, and perms

Cons: Takes a little extra time

I attended school at this Academy. It is an awesome school. The best cosmetology school to attend in Washington. And I still love to get my hair done there not only are they reasonably priced they do a wonderful job.

I am a student at the academy. I love it. The education is top of the line and you really get the salon experience while taking real guests. The schedule is very convenient and the staff is pretty knowledgeable. As a guest I would say you are in good hands. The staff does everything they can to make sure that you are satisfied with your service. They will guarantee the work. Try it once. I think you will like what you get.

First off, let me tell you that I have been to Gene Juarez many times. My last experience was horrible. I took my 13 year old and myself for a cut and highlight. Both of our haircuts was horrible and the color was so bad I had to go back twice -- they processed it incorrectly. I didn't get a discount an apology or anything. I won't go back!

Pros: You learn amazing color , the product lines

Cons: too many i could never fit them all on here

Keep in mind that the GJ salons are schools so the students move at a much slower pace than an experienced stylist. Everything you need from your hair to your nails is cheap. Haircuts start at $6, updo's at $20 and manicures at just $10. you can't beat that!

I had a spa treatment including massage, lunch and pedicure. My friend who was supposed to be on the same schedule as me was taken to her shower then pedicure right after lunch while I sat waiting for close to 40 minutes with nothing happening. By the time the pedicure was done, it was so late, and my friend and finished a while earlier, I had to leave. Never did get a shower. Also the massage was very average - masseuse spent more time adjusting sheets than massaging, and finally the pedicurist was a bit condescending!
I will not go back.

This spa may not be as big as many of the others, but the atmosphere is great. The massage is wonderful and the showers are heavenly! Take the time to relax here!

Gene Juarez is one of the best salons in Seattle and their prep school for stylists is also wonderful. They have many talented people and because it's a school you will get a terrific deal. I have had cuts, colors and manicures and have no complaints. You are always offered a drink and magazines (just like in a salon), and an instructor always checks the work done so you can't leave with a disasterous style. They have wonderful specials in the spring when business is slow - so be sure to check in and see what kind of deals might be available. Also - just FYI - you can ask for a student ready to graduate to make sure you get someone with more experience.

This place is great because it's very spacious, clean and the decor is a southern style. The employees are courtious to a t and are very pleasant to talk with. Everytime i've gone to them i get a wonderful color and they always end up lasting longer than most other places. Only thing is they can get busy from time to time so make sure you call ahead and set up an appointment.

PROS: clean, southern decor, and nail color lasts longer than most
CONS: setup appointment ahead of time

I really love gene Juarez for everything from haircuts/colors, to facials and manicures. The problem is they are too expensive for me to go there all the time. When I do go, I am always happy with everything though.

I am one of those people that when I get my haircut, I want people to be able to notice. I got my hair cut here once and when I walked out, I looked no different than when I had first walked in. Plus they are super pricy!

I like this Salon but they're really expensive and it's seems that whatever haircut you get, looks just like the one you came in with. The staff is friendly but always seems rushed.

PROS: Friendly Staff
CONS: Too Expensive

While I've never known anyone to get a bad haircut at a Gene Juarez Salon, this review is specifically for Valerie, at the Downtown Seattle location.

If you have naturally curly hair, you MUST see her! 5 years ago I had a terrible color job that burned my hair so much that I had to cut it very short (at a place in Olympia).

I went to Valerie on recommendation, and am so glad I did. She cut it into a short, sassy 'do, and from there we started growing it out. Through all the time it took to get it from very short to now past my shoulders, my hair has been cute. This is all due to Valerie's skill! I had great hair even through the awkward grow-out stage, because she really understands naturally curly hair.

Another thing I love about heris that she isn't pushy. Sometimes I just want a break when I get my hair cut. She picks up on that & doesn't try to make endless small talk & ask all kinds of personal questions like some stylists do.
