As in, I was always one of those people that couldn't relax and enjoy the salon experience. Having stylists that are more interested in being stylists rather than someone who, you know, listens to what you have in mind, and even maybe takes a little time to get to know you. I saw Glenn (the owner) for extensions, and I swear from the beginning it was like I had always been going there. They're in a cool location in Belltown, and there is no pretension, no loud dance music or huge front desk manned by someone with an earpiece and better things to do than talk to you about, you know, hair. Glenn's a total professional, easy to talk with, work with, and knows, not just hair, but STYLE. He clearly individualizes his approach and really seemed to want to help my hair look great in the context of my personal style. My salon beef is gone and now I look forward to going, finally my salon experience is what it should be- relaxing, enjoyable, and confidence-building, rather than a vanity-related chore. So if you're like me, chill out and go to Gilt Edge and love going to the salon again.

I purchased a Groupon, which was offering cut/wash/style for $25. Since moving here I have not really found someone to do my hair and was only getting my hair cut when I flew back to Michigan. Um, that is not so convenient.

The salon itself is kind of minimalist, has really cool huge canvas paintings on the walls and uses one of my fav product lines, Kevin Murphy. It wasn't like an uppity salon, but felt more like you were getting your hair cut in a gallery or something like that.

I thought I'd just get a basic trim, as you never know with a new stylist, but I ended up walking out missing 7 inches and with seriously, one of the best cuts I've ever had (and people keep complimenting me, which is always fun.)

Cadance was my stylist and she was super nice. She had some ideas and wanted to take a lot of length off my hair. She sat with me and talked with me for a bit about what it would look like, kind of played with my hair to show me what she was thinking, etc. She definitely took her time with me, which I appreciated as I was scared to death to cut my hair.

She started cutting longer, then asking me if I was OK with that length, if I wanted to go shorter, etc. She did that seriously 3 or 4 times. She wanted to make sure I was comfortable with how it looked and I don't think she wanted me freaking out about how much hair I was removing.

She made sure it was perfect before she finished. Also, she does free bang trims in between cuts, which is a bonus.

All in all, for the first time ever I don't have crazy long hair but I am very happy with how it looks and I think found my new stylist in Seattle.

Not going to lie, Cadance gave me a PIMP @ S S haircut. Shes knows her Sh! T and takes her time. I actually got laid that night because my hair is so rad now. I recommended The guilty Edge Society and Cadance... Very processional and clean establishment. Place is awesome!

Glen walked me through my hair cut and explained everything that he was doing and why. Showed me how i could tame the beast aka my hair. He is truly one of the best hair stylist i've had who's been able to get my hair exactly the way i want it.

I'll most def go back and would definitely recommend anyone to go there :)

Glenn has been doing my hair for about 3 years and since then at least once a week I am stopped by someone and asked who cuts my hair. When I first went to GlennI told him " I maybe in my 50's but I dont want an age appropriate hair cut"! My hair is always fun, a little edgy yet cut perfectly.

After multiple friend recommendations, I finally went to see Glenn yesterday for a cut. He took the time to really evaluate my hair and my expectations. He suggested helpful products and styling tips, but was never pushy. My hair looks and feels fantastic and I can't wait to see him for my color. Go see him immediately if not sooner!!

I have had short hair since I was 12. I am now 40. I usually go to the best salons and best hairstylists, but I was never overwhelmingly happy with my hair. You know how it is. It is never quite perfect. I had my haircut with Glenn for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and it is honestly the best haircut I ever had. It is absolutely perfect. It looks darling, and every hair is just as long as it needs to be. He also gave me good product recommendations, again for the first time ever. Usually I end up finding something for myself that I like. Glenn is AWESOME. Go see him immediately! :-)

I went in there a year ago and said do what you want to me! Steven dyed my hair black. (Something I would have never done on my own.) And I loved it! I feel like I leave with my very own look. I am happy everyitme, he never lets me down. I have never had a better haircut ANYWHERE!!!!! I get constant compliments on my color and cut.

I get a fast buzzcut, usually from Jessica, at the Gilt Edge Society about every three weeks. They can always fit me in the same day I call and do a great job. Price is right, too.

I have been to The Guilt Edge Society for hair extensions, color, and cut and had an amazing experience each time. I have never had trouble making an appointment around my busy schedule. Everyone who works at the Guilt Edge is extremely friendly. The vibe of the salon is professional yet fun and spunky. It is by no means pretentious. They have extremely resonable prices and I recommend anyone and everyone to make an appointement with one of the lovely hair stylists at Guilt Edge!

I had been underwhelmed by my hair for a long time - boring, dull, dry. Each time I styled it I would become even more exasperated by the mediocrity. It was time for a change. Luckily for me I found The Gilt Edge Society and decided to give it a try. Glen cut and colored my hair. The entire experience was phenomenal. Firstly ,after looking at my hair he gave me the option of 2 or 3 different colors and styles which would work for my face shape and hair type. He then took the time to explain how to style my hair properly and showed me products which would help me acheive this (without ever appearing saleman-like) - who does that? It's been three weeks, the cut just keeps getting better and the color is gorgeous. Highly recommended. Thanks Glen!

After a complete disaster at another salon in Seattle I was very hesitant to get my hair cut and colored again. After being long overdue I called and got an appointment with Holly. We went over the exact color I wanted and we figured out a color that would work. She spent 3+ hours working on my cut and color and gave me exactly what I wanted, with a little touch of her own style and it is perfect!! This is one of my favorite cuts/colors ever. Very rarely do I ever recommend hair salons, but I would recommend Holly and the Gilt Edge Society to anyone looking to get their hair done. Not only are they great, but their prices are very reasonable.

Thanks Holly!!!

I am new to Seattle and I avoided getting my hair done for a few months, mostly because I am very picky and usually disappointed when I get my hair done away from my hometown hairdresser back in Boston. But after being recommended to The Gilt Edge Society, I thought I would give it a chance. I called and they made me an appointment with Holly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

I went in there not knowing exactly how I wanted it done, and I left knowing it was perfect. I have dirty blonde hair and usually get it highlighted and cut, but this time I wanted to go a bit more natural. So Holly recommended doing high- and low-lights and they look great - as if they grew right out of my head!

Holly might be young, but she works like she has been styling hair forever. And she even stayed late to fit me in her schedule that night because I had to work until 5pm.

Ask her for advice too - she knows all the best products and techniques. I may have been there for a long time (highlighting, wash and cut took 2 1/2 hours - which is normal) but it went by very quickly because of the good conversation with Holly and interesting atmosphere of the Gilt Edge Society.

I will definately return next time! I almost wish my hair would grow faster...

Pros: Great cut and highlight!

Cons: Had to pay for parking

I've been going to Holly at The Gilt Edge for a few months now. Each time she has done an amazing job - exactly what I wanted. She really listened to what I wanted. She just did my color and it is perfect. I had BRIGHT red added to my dark hair and they're vibrant. The prices are very fair.

Everyone there is very hospitable and there is a great artsy atmosphere.

I can usually book an appointment within the same week.

I have never been disappointed with my cut or color from Steven. He is a genius and does an amazing job with my hair! My only complaint is that he has never once been on time for my appointment. I am a respectful person and always show up on time. I usually wait at least 45 minutes, sometimes even an hour past my scheduled appt time before I actually sit down in the chair. If he didn't do such amazing work- I would never go back.

As I wrote in a recent blog about hair, "I get my hair cut at the Gilt-Edged Society by Glenn, and he?s actually quite reasonable for 2008 in the over-priced metropolis of Seattle, Washington. He?s also a genius with hair. He?s every bit as exacting as I am with my writing, only he uses shears and scissors to create art. And he?s truthful; Glenn will never give you bad advice on hair, not just because he cares about clients, but because he?s the most hair-ethical stylist I?ve ever met." So if you need a new cut or color, try Glenn at the Gilt Edge Society: I truly believe he is the best stylist I have ever had!

This is my first review, but I felt compelled to write.I had not had my hair cut in over a year. I could never be bothered to find a stylist after moving across country (I live in Dallas, TX). I planned a visit to Seattle to visit my brother, and he insisted he get me an appointment with Stephen. Am I glad I agreed. Stephen took the time to listen to what I wanted (not too short, easy to maintain) and was ok that I didn't have any specific ideas for a style. He was able to see what I couldn't, namely, the type of cut I needed. He did a great job. I am very pleased with my cut. I could not be happier. The entire experience was stress free. The only problem? I now have a stylist 2200 miles away from my home.

Stephen also cuts my brother and sister-in-law's hair, so I can honestly say he seems to do a great job with both men and women's hair. He is also very friendly and personable. Highly recommended.

The first step into the Gilt Edge and I was sold. There is always a featured artist on the walls, great music playing and splendid vibes flowing throughout. The Gilt Edge also features wonderful smelling, top-notch hair care products.
Steve has a knack for formulating the perfect color, always taking the time to match your new color with your features perfectly, he knows my hair so well from the first time ever having him color my hair until now ( 2 years of stellar service ) that it goes smoothly and always looks amazing. Awesome cut/styling as well; he is a hair genius! My hair always grows out gracefully and is so fun to style. Also my hair has become soooo much healthier since going to see Steve! His guidelines, products and expertise are always on point. I have also had extensions done by Glenn, he did an amazing job! I would recommend if you have plans on getting extensions?look no further! He?s the best extension guy in Seattle !

I am so excited about my new haircut and color!! Holly really took time to find the right colors for me with the color chart. She took time with me to find out what the right cut would be for my needs. I've never had a cut this cool before! I felt like a movie star leaving the salon! Holly is so cute and fun to talk to, she does what she was meant to do..hair!

I see Glenn for my haircuts and I love the way he's so meticulous. His haircuts are precise and grow out so well, which is the sign of a great and professional cut. I liked the way he took my face shape into consideration the first time we met, too. I never had that done. He's confident and experienced and it shows in his work. He also has some great ideas about color and hair extensions. Overall, the Gilt Edge Society is a fun salon to visit. It's casual and without attitude. They offer free parking, too.

This place blew me away. I have 14 years experience in the salon industry, I spent 2006 traveling the United States researching salons and spas, and I've had my hair cut by the best of the best when it comes to stylists - so being new to Seattle and not knowing anyone in the industry made the thought of getting my haircut a little scary. In fact, I had planned to travel the 3000 miles back to the east coast to do so until I stumbled upon The Gilt Edge Society.

Instantly intrigued by their dedication to the arts, I established contact with Glen & Stephen and was so impressed by their sincerity and kindness that I knew I had to have my hair cut there. I scheduled my first appointment for a cut with Glen. I am probably as picky as they come - I know what I want, I know cutting basics and I am a stickler for customer service and professionalism.

My entire service exceeded my expectations. Glen has a straight forward approach and told me what needed to happen to my hair in order for it to work best with my facial structure. Upon my approval, he gave me by far the greatest haircut I have ever had - which, oddly enough was about $400 less than my previous east coast cut.

I returned for color a few weeks later and established just a few guidelines for what I was looking for but at this point felt comfortable enough with him that I knew he would do what was best. This was huge for me as I usually formulate my own color and then tell the stylist how and where to put it on my head. The results were great and I have received numerous compliments.

During both services Glen took the time to explain what he was doing and why, and in a non-salesmen like manner explained the products he was using on my hair and how I could create the same effects at home.

I was overly impressed with the service I received and would encourage anyone interested in getting a great hair at an overly fair price to go to The Gilt Edge.

Upon my approval, he gave me by far the greatest haircut I have ever had - which, oddly enough was about $400 less than my previous east coast cut.

I returned for color a few weeks later and established just a few guidelines for what I was looking for but at this point felt comfortable enough with him that I knew he would do what was best. This was huge for me as I usually formulate my own color and then tell the stylist how and where to put it on my head. The results were great and I have received numerous compliments.

During both services Glen took the time to explain what he was doing and why, and in a non-salesmen like manner explained the products he was using on my hair and how I could create the same effects at home.

I was overly impressed with the service I received and would encourage anyone interested in getting a great hair at an overly fair price to go to The Gilt Edge.

This place blew me away. I have 14 years experience in the salon industry, I spent 2006 traveling the United States researching salons and spas, and I've had my hair cut by the best of the best when it comes to stylists - so being new to Seattle and not knowing anyone in the industry made the thought of getting my haircut a little scary. In fact, I had planned to travel the 3000 miles back to the east coast to do so until I stumbled upon The Gilt Edge Society.

Instantly intrigued by their dedication to the arts, I established contact with Glen & Stephen and was so impressed by their sincerity and kindness that I knew I had to have my hair cut there. I scheduled my first appointment for a cut with Glen. I am probably as picky as they come - I know what I want, I know cutting basics and I am a stickler for customer service and professionalism.

I LOVE MY HAIR NOW! At the Gilt Edge Society, Glen one of the owners,
gave me the best hair style I have ever had in my twenty five years! He took the time
to try to know me and intuitively gave me hair that I always wanted! I love the ever changing
art displayed at the studio and the kick back, no problems attitude. I have never been so
excited not only about my hair, the cut the color, everything, but also about a place of business.
The treatment is rocking and I look forward to the monthly art shows that have hosted some
very talented artists.

Ever since I stopped going to Gene Juarez about 3 years ago Ive been looking for a new hair-stylist but have been generally dissappointed with every one that I've tried...that is until I found Glen- owner of the Gilt Edge. I was very impressed with his skill and knowledge and I knew right away I was in the hands of a master. He explained to me why my current haircut wasn't working for me and how to keep my hair looking more healthy. I think I left with the best haircut I have ever had and am excited to go back!! I am recommending this salon to all my friends.

I have been researching hair extensions for over a year. My final consultation was with Glen Gustafik at Gilt Edge. He is experienced, knowledgeable, professional, and really knows hair. I HAD fine shoulder length hair that never seemed to grow past my shoulders. Now I have gorgeous natural looking long wavy hair. Its nearly impossible to tell they are extensions unless you are running your fingers thru my hair. I love them! The best part was the cost! almost 1/2 of what the other salons (gary, gene, etc) are charging. Included in the cost is hair style, product, follow up visit, special brush and styling instructions. I love the fact the salon is open on weekends and evenings so you can get an apointment when YOU want one (not 3 to 4 weeks out). You wont be disapointed!

A few weeks ago, I hesitantly walked into Gilt Edge for my first haircut w/ Glenn. As a girl w/ thick curly ("ringlett-y") hair, I have received more than my fair share of bad haircuts, so I am naturally timid before seeing any new hairstylist. However, after my first few minutes talking to Glenn, my fears were alleviated. He didn't just go straight for the scissors; he talked to me about my hair, what i wanted out of my cut, what were some good or bad cuts that i've had, etc. Then he actually explained to me what he was going to do and why. I've never before had a hairstylist discuss with me the texture of my hair or the shape of my face and how those things affect your cut/style. He completely understood my hesitance because he recognized and appreciated the difficulty of cutting my type of hair. All of Glenn's experience, however, along with his personality, gave me total confidence in him to give me a great cut - and rightfully so. I can honestly say, hands down, that it was the best haircut I have ever received in my life! Glenn gave my curls back a lot of much needed life and lift; he took out the weight and density that was giving me that "blah" look. I walked out of there feeling great and at ease with my new cut. I will definitely be returning for many more cuts, which I have no doubt will be as spectacular as the first.

I went to Glen specifically for a color consultation and wound up asking him about extensions. He explained everything about the process in detail and I got really excited about the idea. I made an appointment immediately for color and luscious new long locks. My hair is incredible! What I loved about working with Glen was that he and I were on the same page with our ideas about my hair. He actually listened to me, which is refreshing because I have had many unhappy experiences with stylists simply because they do not listen. I am totally ga ga over my beautiful new color and extensions. I cannot wait for him to cut it. I am also looking forward to an old school roller set with him. Jessica and Steven are also really nice and their new assistant is a total doll. I love the vibe of the space and have had a blast at their functions. Anyone looking for a fabulous stylist and a really cool place to get it done MUST go.

Glen Gustavik was recommended by a client of mine. I have let only 1 other stylist touch my hair in over 20 years and was a little nervous. I can say with no doubt that Glen is great!!! I went to him for extentions after a long illness took most of my hair away. He did an amazing job and was very kind;-). I love his shop, the art work is ever changing and the staff is friendly and prompt! I feel very lucky to have found this shop and would recommend it to anyone who wants great service and style!

Hmmmm.....been meaning to write this for ages, and in fact the only reason I can even be bothered to get on City Search is to write this review! Never written one of these before, but it must go something like:
Glenn and Co are dope dudes who do such great hair, and the salon itself is hip without being pretentious. Great art on the walls, really low key environment and a lot of kindess....lovely! Everyone I've told has left feeling better than when they came, and that is sort of the point, isn't it?
(this better effing send cause I've tried twice and it keeps boucing!!!!!!)

I have never had a good haircut until I went to Jessica. My hair is thick and difficult to cut, but she does a really good job. I also like the vibe of the place-it's very relaxed and frequently has cool art work on the walls. I highly recommend Jessica and the Gilt Edge Society.

My hair had been highlighted for too many years, it was not at all natural looking. Jessica gave me some options and color advice. The color she chose for me just couldn't be better.

The Gilt Edge Society has a very talented staff in a frequently changing artsy atmosphere. Jessica has been cutting my hair for two years. Her vision and execution has taken me from the "little boy's regular" I've been wearing for twenty years into this century with a style that's easier to care for and looks great.

I have not found a more phenomenal hair stylist who seems to know exactly what I want before I say it. I've been loyal to Glenn for four years now and that's not without reason. For me, everywhere I've gone it's always been the case of having to specify exactly what to do and how to do it to get the look I'm after. With Glenn, I tell him to keep it GQ and have to say no more. The salon is spectacular; with a very hip atmosphere that is constantly changing and with highly talented and friendly people, The Gilt Edge Society is an awesome experience. Anyone who goes there will love it and keep coming back.

Glenn Gustavik has been my stylist for 2 years now. It is rare to find a stylist that you can trust with your hair completely. I not only trust Glenn, but have extreme confidence in his ability to make me look and feel fabulous. With an artistic eye and many years of experience, Glenn is able to create a look that best fits any individual and their personality. From 22" hair extensions, to a shoulder length bob, Glenn's visions are limitless. The salon has an urban vibe, that is ever changing with up and coming new art. The entire staff is fun and friendly. Have your hair done at the Gilt Edge Society and you will be hooked too!

I?ve been going to Jessica for 5 years and not only is she an amazing stylist but she?s also the best colorist I have ever been to. I do not trust anyone else with my hair. She also always puts the health of my hair first which I believe is a rare but amazing trait to find in a stylist.

If you want a new stylish look or just a trim Jessica is the lady who will keep your hair beautiful and healthy.

Glenn has been my girlfriend?s stylist for many years. She has followed him when he moved salons and would probably move to a different city if he moved, which I hope he never does.

After seeing how the general public responded to my girlfriend?s hair which Stylist/Owner Glenn Gustafik cuts, I made the switch to Glenn a couple of years ago. I have not had any regrets about the switch from the 7 Salon to Glenn Gustafik. I actually got carded for the first time in years after getting my hair cut by Glenn.

He made me look great and younger, what a combination. The salon is really nice and comfortable. I never find myself bored if I am early for my appointment. I know I can keep myself busy playing pinball, or reading a men?s magazine while sipping on a complimentary coffee or bottled water.

I whole-heartedly recommend Glenn to my friends and family, and to you also. Did I mention the free parking? Just ask about it when you book your appointment. You won?t be disappointed.

PROS: Best haircuts in town, free parking, convenient location, great staff

The Experience you receive at The Gilt Edge is none other than Exceptional. I can't commend the people who work there enough. Jessica cuts and colors my hair(although you aren't suppose to know that- but believe that it's naturally this dark...) The shop is inviting, colorful and there is a strong sense of camaraderie among the team which usually leads to fun discussions (something that is a theme in some of the best barber shops in the world- ie. the movie "Barber Shop." Duh.). I go for amazing hair- but leave feeling great that I know these wonderful, artistic and genuine people.

I would also highly recommend The Gilt Edge Society to the Seattleite who wants to support and sustain the local art and culture scene of Seattle and beyond. The shop is an active member in the art scene-they sacrifice their walls to display it. Go to one of their art shows or get your hair did and see for yourself!

The Combination of the exceptional service and atmosphere makes this place unique and legendary. Thank you guys!

I have been seeing Glenn Gustavik, a very talented stylist/owner every three weeks for over 6 years. He is the first stylist I have ever had that I can give total design and color control to. He is a top notch person who gets to know his clients. By knowing them, he understands their likes and is able to combine the clients style with his artistic ability.

Many friends and co-workers have started going to Glenn as a result of seeing my hair.

If you want a talented and artistic stylist, I would highly recommend Glenn. I would suggest making your appointment in advance, as the word is getting out.

Glenn is the man who made me LOVE to get my haircut! Everytime i leave his salon, i always feel so good. After so many bad haircuts, i started to believe there was no hope until i met the ever so wonderfully talented Mr. Gustafik! Now i can walk in and have complete trust that when i leave, my hair will feel and look FABULOUS! I have gotten so many people asking me all over the city where i get my hair done. I would reccomend anyone and everyone who has gotten a bad haircut. Glenn will change your mind...and your hair for that matter. The salon's relaxing atmosphere and ever changing artistic interior makes this salon unlike any other in the city!

I don't know what I would do if Glenn ever left Seattle! I have very fine hair and could never have the long hairstyle I always wanted. Until I met Glenn! He put extensions in which gave me not only length but the thickness and volume I always longed for. He uses the Great Lengths system which are individual bonds of varying sizes that do not damage your hair. I have had them for almost 3 years now and my own hair is in great shape. After he did my extensions a couple of times I had him color and cut my hair and I was thrilled. I often want to change my color and length and Glenn is always honest with me and helps me to figure out what will and won't work for my coloring and face shape. He is also up to date and knowledgable about the latest trends and products. I trust Glenn with my hair wholeheartedly and I highly recommend him to everyone.
Not only is Glenn a master at hair but he is sweet, charming and fun to talk to. My kids even like to come with me when I get my hair done so they can see Glenn and play with the pinball machine!
The salon has a laidback and funky vibe and everyone that works there is friendly and welcoming. There is also free parking!!

The Gilt Edge is cutting edge in terms of the talented stylists and the playful, always changing art gallery decor. Glenn, one of the stylist/owners, is extremely skilled with cut and color as well as being an extremely nice guy. He knows how to keep aging Baby Boomers like myself and my husband looking trendy but not too over the top. The owners support local artists by exhibiting their work, which makes for a unique environment each time we come in.
