Martin is excellent. I had my haircut from very long to relatively short, for the 1st time in 20 years. I've received many compliments since then, including from folks who didn't know me previously. I just scheduled my next appointment.

Got to the shop early and was put in the chair promptly. Friendly banter from the staff. Most importantly a great haircut and all at a fair price. I would highly recommend this wonderful establishment to anyone.

I just had a fantastic experience at Valentine's!

My experience started with a warm greeting and the offer of a refreshment (which I declined only because I had just picked-up a hot tea next door). As I relaxed in the comfortable chairs, I chatted with "V" who was busy tending to a customer about the decor.

Valentine's is tastefully decorated in autumn colors (which "V" prefers as Autumn is a time of change where all of the turning colors make for a delightful palette).

Emily took care of me throughout the afternoon/evening starting first with a manicure, hand and forearm massage, and hot towel hand-wrap, followed by a foot bath, pedicure, and foot massage. I marveled at her skill at relaxing me as she worked on my hands and feet.

Once my hands and feet were buffed and polished, Emily further pampered me with a hair cut and beard trim. Since she is still learning hair styling, Valentine was always there to give her a tip and double-check her work. A true team with me as the lucky subject.

I would recommend Valentine's to any man who wants to be pampered for an afternoon in the Greenwood area.

Pros: Great Seattle men's grooming option, very accomodating.

Cons: Book ahead - though they'll try to fit you in if they can

Every detail is attended to, from the ambiance when you walk in the door, the smile from the reception desk, the overstuffed chairs, the offer of a beverage to the very best haircut and manicure in the state. The place is perfection, and Valentine is a perfectionist. You will not be disappointed. Once you go to Valentine's, you will never go anywhere else - trust me.

I would say this place is the best mens salon on the west coast... The straight razor shaves are excelent, and the attention to detail with every customer that walks in that door is beyond any expectations... Its a place you like to go to and tell your friends when you have been there!

I moved back from Las Vegas to find that Valentine not only had upgraded his spot but opened a new Salon Downtown. You go get Valentine. I will always come to your joint first for a cut. A little more expensive now but still well worth the money.

I've been going to Valentine for nearly twenty years, but the newbies get top treatment, too. You get your haircut your way, consistently, in a classy setting, with attentive service and a relaxing atmosphere. My hair doesn't grow out fast enough!

Pros: You are welcomed as a friend, served like a celebrity.

A really unique experience. Mr. Valentine keeps the place in 1930s shape and dresses the part himself. Candles set a mood and the gracious and courteous staff invite you in and show you to your stations. Large comfortable furniture, designed tools for grooming, top-quality products, everything is there for your enjoyment. I've quite honestly never experienced anything like it. You're not a piece of meat being worked over, you are a human being with individual tastes and interests. Valentine's lets you know you are a valuable person. A great experience!

Cons: Only want even more ambiance! Candles, music, dress, etc.

Every time I go in for a haircut, I'm always treated to great service and Valentine is always ready to treat his customers to the best haircut you can get.
Been to a lot of places and this place is it for me.

I've had issues with parking before but nothing one or two laps around the block doesn't usually solve

I just moved from D.C and was recommended to check Valentine. It was worth! This is a hairstylist gem in the Phinney neighborhood. Valentine is the man, who has afforded the opportunity to remain traditional, yet also progressively contemporary as fashion. He seeks to accommodate the modern male hairstyle trend by employing traditional and modern hair styling. Valentine is the ??barber surgeon? that you make you look and feel good. Thumbs up?

In all my years of getting a haircut, I have received some very poor haircuts, some fairly good haircurs, and some high quality cuts. But never have I sat in the chair and felt so confident in the quality of haircut and beard trim as I get every time I place myself in Valentine;'s expert hands.

He is an artisan, a craftsman. He takes great pride and care in his work, and will not let you out of the chair until your haircut looks its best.

If that were not enough, it is commendable what Valentine does for his community, his numerous hours of free haircuts he gives to those who are struggling, and his commitment to teaching, mentoring and helping others reach their highest potential.

I encourage all to make an appointment and let Valentine do his magic. Your hair will look better than you have ever thought possible.

If you're the kind of guy where the haircut DOES matter and can't get away with formula cuts that can be dished out by whoever, wherever, this is the place to go.
Valentine knows his work. He listens, he'll offer opinions but it's your call, he is without pretense, he puts as much time into it as the task requires, he's relentless in his ability to ensure that each and every employee is maintaining his own very high standards. This place is efficient, well run, tidy, comfortable and delivers everything at least as well if not better than salons that charge 3 or 4 times what he charges! Go!

Just moved to the neighborhood and I have always been looking in when passing by, you know nice shinny place. Today I went in for my appointment, and I will say at first I thought that it was going to be all stars and lights, you know those places. Great decor, beautiful women, french press coffee brought to my chair with a cup and saucer, are they for real?
Now lets get down to the business... The consultation began with many questions of what I like, what I do not like about my hair, how much time do i have in the mornings and helpful suggestions as well.
The cut was... Impressive to my surprise. This was the first time in a while that I got a cut that I wanted and not the stylist choice, or mistake. Good scalp massage and the how to's of styling a double plus for me. I made appointment for a haircut, shave and a manicure for next time... And I really look forward to that day. Straight A's from me and I will recommended it.

A great cut, with coffee, with beard trim, with shampoo and style for $35. In a day and age where everything is substandard, finally someone that actually CARES about giving the best cut, service, at a good price.

I highly recommend this place. Valentine himself did mine and I will be back.

I met Valentine through a friend a few years ago. Lately his name had come up in a few conversations I have had. I am the single parent of a teenaged son who has wanted to explore a barber's license. One school suggested he take a look at Valentine's. I filed that in the back of my mind on an ever growing to-do list.
As my son and I were running around getting things ready for his prom, I became aware of the fact that the haircut he wanted was not going to happen. We had 2 days to figure this out and I called Valentine after the salon had closed for the day. Valentine and his incredible team found a way to fit him in, give him more than the look he was after, and let him observe what a day in the life of style, grooming and mens fashion were about.
There are things that a mom cannot teach her son about personal grooming, finding your own style, and how to properly tie a tie. Valentine's did this all for him, and in return I hope you will visit them and let them help you define your style.

One of the few places that still offer a straight edge shave. I had to experience my first one and to say it was great would be an understatement. Roderick really knows the art of straight edge shaving and made my first time very relaxing. I will definately be back for another!!

Around 1993 I wandered into a small barber shop on twenty-fourth in the Ballard area of Seattle. As a man in my late 40?s I had reservations about getting my hair cut after walking inside the small shop. The clientele were young men/teenagers and the barber was not much older. There was graffiti art on all the walls and the music was loud and it appeared the party was on. But, as I sat and observed each customer explain specifics about how they wanted their hair cut and the barber took the time to listen and cut their hair to the customer specifications. When it was my turn to have my hair cut the young man whom I later come to know as Thaddius Valentine understood the value of doing a good job and providing great customer service. My haircut was perfect and I received numerous compliments from friends and coworkers. I returned many times over the next few years and referred friends who were extremely satisfied as well. I had always felt that the haircut I received at Valentine?s were the best cuts I had ever had in my life. I left feeling I was well groomed.
I moved away returning several years later to find that he had set up a very high quality men?s salon in the Greenwood area of Seattle. I was treated with the highest level of customer service the minute I walked through the door. I received a haircut, beard trim, shampoo and scalp massage. The treatment and personal attention of the staff made me realize that I had received the highest quality and service possible. I highly recommend that any man wanting to look his best visit this salon. He will not be disappointed.

I get my haircut when I can, you know always on the run like most of us. I have been passing by this place for some time and finally stop in for a quick cut. I did not have an appointment however it was first thing in the morning so I was sure they could get me, right?
I walk in and ask if anyone can get me real quick for a clean up or something, they were very nice as they would not say the word NO. I am big on customer service and always look to see if I can catch someone telling me the N. O. word. They told me I can come right back in a few hours, so I had some things I can do and said I would take it.
Came back a little later that day and they called me by my name! Very impressed, I see they are trained very well I like to see that as I took a seat and a young woman brought me some tea with a side of hot water. I am so impressed I am a little worried about the cut now, if they are that concerned from the beginning then they might be covering up a bad haircut, right...? Oh I have never been so wrong! all I will say it is the best cut I have ever had! The consultation, the great cut for I found someone that seems to truly care as well as listens. Great job Rodrick, my stylist and Maggie with the scalp massage, very good team.
It was my first time so I will keep you informed for a updated in a few weeks if they can dupe this again I will be a lifer!

Valentine's takes care of you from head to foot... literally! I did not get the pedicure but I did see another client receiving one and I'm going to have to indulge my next visit. If you want to treat yourself, this is the place to do it. I also finally found a stylist, Roderick, who cut my hair according to the shape of my head. He didn't hack away according to some formulaic method. Instead, he asked me my preferences, gave some recommendations, and clipped away. I've never considered myself metro but I just might after my experience here.

From the minute you arrive, this place exudes class - the Valentine's staff greet you by name, offer you a drink and ask you to have a seat in their lounge area. When it was time for my cut, I was given consultation on what I like, what might work better for me, etc. Imagine how nice that is - having a professional barber take the time to tell you what he's going to do to make you look razor sharp! And the beautiful thing is, I ended up with the best haircut I've had in years at a totally reasonable price. Plus, the fact that shampoo/conditioning, scalp massage and styling is included makes Valentine's the cream of the crop. I haven't tried Valentine's other services (e.g. hot lather shave, manicure) but I certainly will. Don't cheat yourself or waste your money going to other places as I've done in the past...go to Valentine's.

The title says it all! Valentines has the word service, in its truest sense, down to the "T".From when you walk through the door to when you walk out, Mr Valenine has a flair for what customers really want but are so used to the mundane, that when they come across a merchant that really has their best interest in mind, it just blows them away as it did with myself.When you enter you are greeted immediately, asked if you would like a beverage (water is served in a martini glass - classy), coffee is served with cream and sugar on the side. Mr Valentine than has his assistants wash your hair, give you a wonderful head massage and prepare you for the "main show" - your haircut.You than sit in a leather chair with your feet propped up on a ottoman (what no stiff barber chair looking at yourself in the mirror?)and sip on your beverage(beer and wine licence? - wishful thinking), enjoy the up beat music and the lighting tops off the hair cutting experience. Other services are available while getting your haircut - manicure, pedicure and several different shaves. Heaven!At the end of your haircut you are immediately taken to a room which his assistant proceeds to rinse you off as well as give you another head massage. Yeeessssss!Than, you are taken to yet another chair for the finishing touches - hair dried and sculpted. Wow! An unexpected experience to say the least.If you are a professional and like the attention of personal service delivered with a sincere interest in what you want, visit Valentines and you will walk away with a smile knowing you have found a "gem" and your return is guaranteed. Prepare to tell your friends.About me: I am a 44 year old local Seattle business owner that knows a thing or two about service. Being in the service industry for over 20+ years, I have come across the best and the worst. In addition, my wife is a hair stylist in Bellevue, Wa. Bet you didn't see that one coming.

I started taking my younger brother to Valentine's for haircuts about ten years ago, when it was just a little hole in the wall in Ballard. The place has only gotten better with age. Now the little shop in Ballard is a luxurious space in Greenwood. The high ceilings, lighting, leather club chairs and drapes are glamorous while the service is top notch, with a friendly greeting and beverage provided as soon as you step in the door. Expanded offerings now include manicures and straight shaves, which I can't personally vouch for but I am sure are fantastic.

However, the most important thing is that they cut men's hair better than anywhere else in the city. I may be a woman, but I know hair and I know what every guy I have ever sent there has told me. My ex complained he always had one section of hair that no barber had ever been able to make look right; Valentine's fixed it. My mom once told me to take my brother to the woman down the street instead of driving all the way to Ballard for a haircut; she took one look at that finished product and told me to continue taking him to Valentine's.

It is their attention to detail, extensive training on ALL types of hair, and belief that not only women should get excellent haircuts in a place they feel comfortable, that makes them this good. If you are a man wanting a change, or someone looking for a high-end experience, or even if you just need to fix that one thing that has always bothered you about your hair, go to Valentine's. Any woman looking to give her guy a unique gift should consider a gift certificate here.

(And the few times I've convinced Valentine to cut my own hair, he has done an amazing job!)

I started taking my younger brother to Valentine's for haircuts about ten years ago, when it was just a little hole in the wall in Ballard. The place has only gotten better with age. Now the little shop in Ballard is a luxurious space in Greenwood. The high ceilings, lighting, leather club chairs and drapes are glamorous while the service is top notch, with a friendly greeting and beverage provided as soon as you step in the door. Expanded offerings now include manicures and straight shaves, which I can't personally vouch for but I am sure are fantastic.

However, the most important thing is that they cut men's hair better than anywhere else in the city. I may be a woman, but I know hair and I know what every guy I have ever sent there has told me. My ex complained he always had one section of hair that no barber had ever been able to make look right; Valentine's fixed it. My mom once told me to take my brother to the woman down the street instead of driving all the way to Ballard for a haircut; she took one look at that finished product and told me to continue taking him to Valentine's.

It is their attention to detail, extensive training on ALL types of hair, and belief that not only women should get excellent haircuts in a place they feel comfortable, that makes them this good. If you are a man wanting a change, or someone looking for a high-end experience, or even if you just need to fix that one thing that has always bothered you about your hair, go to Valentine's. Any woman looking to give her guy a unique gift should consider a gift certificate here.

(And the few times I've convinced Valentine to cut my own hair, he has done an amazing job!)

.

I got my hair cut at Valentine's two weeks ago. From the moment I walked in, the staff greeted me, offered me a drink and then not only asked my name, but used it consistently and correctly throughout to make the entire process fantastic. If you are used to a "chain" haircut, where the staff's biggest concern seems to be how fast they can get you done and back out the door, prepare to be shocked.

I have never had anyone pay so much attention to get my hair perfect. Not only did it look great the moment I walked out the door, but even today it is growing out to be one of the longest lasting cuts ever. I don't spend much time or energy treating myself, and I had to force myself to relax into the experience. The attention and time that Valentine's provides is a blissful escape that I have never felt was easily available to me a young professional man.

I highly, highly encourage you to make Valentine's your barber shop. I can't say enough good things about it, and so I will do the next best thing and be their customer for life.

I was recommended to Valentine's by a friend of mine. I need to cut a good amount of hair off because I wanted a completely new look. I was a little nervous about it because everytime I do this when the weather gets nice the stylist say they can take it short, but they never can take out the lines on the sides of my head from the clippers they use.
Not only did Valentine "the owner" make me feel completely comfortable about making a change, he gave me the best haircut I have ever had in my entire life! I really felt like he paid attention to everything I wanted and gave it to me with no lines that takes weeks to grow out. Now I am recommending him to all of my friends. Valentine is a little pricier than the rest of the staff, but worth every cent!

After speaking to a few friends about what to get my boyfriend for Christmas, they recommended that I treat him to a nice spa package. Knowing that he's not quite the full massage and spa type of guy, I decided to do something in between. I purchased a gift certificate from Valentine's which included a haircut, a scalp / facial massage, and a straight razor shave. He was quite thrilled at receiving the gift certificate, but it was I who was thrilled when I saw him after the appointment....he looked absolutely FABULOUS!!! He's had many haircuts before; but in my opinion, this was one of the best, not to mention his face was as soft as a baby's (thanks to the razor shave). A gift certificate to Valentine's is the perfect gift for any man. Thanks guys!

Bach Nguyen is a exceedingly young talented barber. This man listens to what you want unlike other barbers who tend to do what they feel is in-style. Another great thing about how he attends to you, he will not get any hair on your shirt!!! He is very classy guy and makes you feel good about paying him cut your hair. His line ups are clean and his haircuts are spectacular, so if your looking for a million dollar haircut for a good price call vealentine's in Greenwood and make an appointment with Bach.

Go to Valentine's on Greenwood in Seattle! There is no barber shop in the town with a more relaxed atmosphere and classy vibe to it. My barber is Bach Nguyen and he can do the best fades I have ever seen, no lie. Very professional and you can tell he loves the line of work he's in. Bach can cut your hair anyway you want and it will turn out clean, fresh line-up, and won't even get one hair on your shirt. Call him up and make an appointment for your next cut.

I have never been to place where they make you feel like a star. As soon as you step in you are greeted by the receptionist where she automatically offers you refreshements. The atmosphere is so professional yet so relaxed that you leave here ready to conquer the world! If you are looking for a place where you want to feel like a KING, Valentine's is the place to be. Bach is the man to see, he definately knows his stuff. He makes sure to give you what you want. You tell him what you want and he delivers. I trust his sense of style that I love taking suggestions on what looks good.

It is rare to be able to go anywhere and just relax. At Valentines you get to your appointment and are able to enjoy the 1920's style classy environemnt, settle in for your haircut with a nice drink and just relax. The stylist listens and tries to figure out what you want done with your hair. No matter what or what you do not decide upon it will look great. The shampoo and scalp massage was wishing for more.
I remember when I first saw Valentines at their Greenwood location, cool idea but it felt too loud for me. Pool, t.v.'s, hip-hop (all which I like but not a relaxing environmnet). THINGS HAVE CHANGED, they have gone through a first class face lift. Mellow, cool, classy and professional would describe my experience.

Pros: Great haircut with a relaxed but not stale ambience.

Cons: It would be nice if they offered a chair massage or had a massage room

After having suffered needlessly for years at other places, I can confidently say that I may never go anywhere else for a haircut again. Unlike many other places, where I usually feel like a number, when I first walked in to Valentine's, I was greeted and offered a beverage. Then, Mitch took a few minutes to get to know me, to listen to my concerns and came up with something stylish, but still conservative enough to be professional. Lastly, Rose gave one of the best head massages I've ever had while she washed my hair. I left feeling great about my new haircut and feeling that I got much more for my money than I had ever expected. Thanks for raising the bar, guys!

Thank you Mr. Valentine,
The bar is raised and standards have been exceeded. The King of Kings treatment had. Yours is not the average men's salon. I'm welcomed in, jacket taken, made at home. The couches, comfy, the music is goin' and the vibe is smooth. I loosen up and sit back, I take a deep breath and plunge into the excess of the rituals. I walked average, I leave the King of Kings. Almost too good to be true.
Thank you.

One of the most exclusive salons I have been to! Gary's better watch out and Rogers has a thing to learn from this small operation. I let the humble Martin know about one of days ?we? have at the office. I?m not sure of what he signaled to others as right after the cut they whisked me off to the stage and sank me in to an overstuffed leather chair, they insisted I put my feet up before they started, as I put my head back as they put a hot towel over my face and on cue they started giving me hand massage! Now, I have never experienced any thing like this, as soon as I thought it was finished they took me to the blue lounge and gave me a scalp massage that I will never forget! This is the place to look out for. Congratulations boys you have truly done it! Now I know what others say when this is "the" place.

Cons: There will never be enough time in a day for all of the amenities.

To tell you the truth, that first review sounds pretty fake- pay no mind to lame shout outs. i'll give you the real deal. "knockmout" was on point if not a bit overzealous about Martin. I've been seeing him for the past couple years and no complaints here. In fact I wouldn't go anywhere else. He's timely about his cuts, and he can cut ANY type of hair to any style. I think the only issue is it's been harder to get an appointment lately. But yeah, Martin is the shizz indeed.

I've been to several different salons from gene juarez to rudy's. Unfortunately most stylists don't understand that a guy's haircut is a little more complicated than just cleaning up the edges. I've had to settle for subpar haircuts after my stylist moved to California. On the recommendation of what honestly was quite a few friends, I made an appointment with Martin. To avoid an unnecessary novel of my experience I'll just give you the important details- it's a men's salon (though it seems a bit feminine with the hand massages (Martin doesn't prefer those for his clients which is smart) and flowy curtains), easy to find, appointment was on time...and most importantly it took me less than a couple minutes to explain to Martin what I wanted. He gave knowledgeable advice about certain ways it can be cut, which means he knew what he was doing. BUT he listened to what I wanted at the same time and cut my hair a million times better than I expected. With that said, I've finally found my permanant stylist. His pricing is actually reasonable and worth it.

BTW, he seems to be a bit popular since i had to book him a week prior.

Pros: Martin, cleanliness, Martin, pricing, Martin, easy parking, Martin

Cons: no need for silly hand massages, receptionist a bit annoying but you have next to no contact with her after you walk in

Valentines is unlike any other place in town. No where else can even come close to the luxury, service, and quality which you will recieve. I have no doubt been completly satisfied with my haircut each and every time. I would recommend Valentines to any person who wants the best hair cut he can get in Seattle.

Every time I have receive a haircut in the past a stylist informs me that I have very difficult hair to cut, I presume that's why I have always put up with mediocre work, never again! The cut I just received from Valentine's was the GREATEST! They went over the top to make sure I was comfortable, offering beverages and relaxation from the moment I walked in the door. I have been getting cut in Bellevue and the experience is "good" however I have just discovered the hair gurus over at Valentine's and I will never settle for "good" again. I would never think to drive the distance from the east side to Seattle for haircut until today! I will make an exception from now on. The experience at Valentine's was phenomenal, something I will cherish for quite some time!

I've been going to Valentine's for almost 10 years. Never have I had a bad cut. And now that the salon is remodeled, the atmosphere makes it feel like your not in some ordinary barbershop. Make an appointment, but expect to get in 15 min after it.

When my fiance first saw my haircut I received at Valentine's she told me right away how she loved it. She's never said that! She wasn't the last one either. Later on that night we went to dinner at the Flying Fish and the couple next to us also gave me a compliment. Wow, I didn't know a haircut could make such a difference! I was always going to any salon who can get me in and out the quickest. I received a hand massage during my haircut sitting on a leather chair. I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and recommend Valentine's to all my friends.
