I'm one of those people that never go get their hair done because it has always turned out bad! My experience with Elizabeth at Tart has changed that. This girl is EXACTLY what I have been looking for in a hair stylist. She has good taste, listens to your wants and needs, and has a wide variety of skills. Elizabeth is absolutely wonderful, hands down the best hair stylist I have ever had. She styled my hair for my wedding, and since then I have gone back to her for a cut and color. Her prices are ridiculously affordable! For her quality of work you would expect to pay twice as much, but her prices are the best. She has exceeded my expectations every time I see her. I am extremely happy to have found Elizabeth! An added bonus, the salon is absolutely adorable, very inviting, and charming. You are treated with excellent customer service as you are offered water, coffee, wine, or a magazine. Check this girl out, she is worth it.

I went to Tart recently and saw Jami. She was amazing! The cut I received - which was a drastic change for me by cutting over a foot off - was all by her design and her idea and ended up to be such a great new style for me. She also very graciously gave me the leftover hair to send to Locks of Love. She also accommodated me with a late appointment since I work and can rarely get out for a couple of hours. After a glass of wine, a great hair cut and foil and great conversation, I went home very happy. I am a new life-long customer of Tart. Also the Bumble & Bumble full line is available if you - like me - have been looking for somewhere to get the more rare B&B products. Great salon, great stylist! I highly recommend.

Pros: Great stylist, great salon, fair prices, excellent products for sale

Cons: none

After reading the reviews, I was SO excited to book an appointment for a MUCH needed cut here... but all my phonecalls fail to go through and my e-mail was returned undeliverable.

So... it's either
A) Really annoying if they're out of business that #1 they're still listed on here and #2 they still have a web site that doesn't say anything about them being closed.
or
B) Really annoying that their contact information is all wrong.

I am a down to earth girl who likes to look fashionable but personable. I have always felt completely taken care of when I see Elizabeth. She is great at listening to my ideas and imputing her own knowledge with out making me feel out of the loop! I have been able to change up my style several times while maintaining my personal comfort and routine. All along the way getting pointers and advice on new products and styles that will fit my daily life.... Basically Elizabeth is awesome and she has NEVER dissapoited me, I can't think of anyone else I would trust with my hair and she has a killer sense of humor that will brighten up even the rainiest days!!!!

I followed Tracy from her previous salon and have found her to be the most talented stylist I have ever been too, with the bonus of being such a bright spirit, down to earth and lots of fun. She knows exactly how to cut curly hair and has been helping me grow my hair out without it looking like mushroom head! She has done a few colors on me but mostly glosses and great cuts! She is worth the drive!

So, I woke up one Saturday morning (last one to be exact) and thought to myself..."Does my hair fit who I am right now?" and decided I needed a change. Jami put the cape around me and asked what we were doing today. I told her I wanted my hair A LOT darker and with severe Retro bangs. After a color consultation (where she talked me into doing one shade lighter to avoid crazy shock - and she was right...as usual), we got right to it. I've been going to Jami for over a year and have had nothing but amazing results. Once again, she did not let me down!!! She's the kind of stylist that remembers the little details of your life and is conversational without being too talkative. She's extremely talented, fun, funNY and absolutely worth the hour drive to her salon from my new house.

I almost want to keep this review a secret because I'm selfish and don't want to have trouble getting an appt with her. :)

Pros: Get a great hair-do for a still great price in Seattle.

Cons: Ummm....I moved far away and now it's quite a commute?

The owner Jaime cut my hair, I wanted a trim but got a severe haircut, but the top was still long and bushy, I asked her to thin out and cut into the loft of hair left behind, and she cut into it so deeply that there are now parts that feel bristly to the touch. I had to go home and attempt to salvage what was left of my hair, and even out the parts that were uneven and where there were random longer stray hairs. Probably one of the worst haircuts of my life. Next time I will pay the extra money and go to Vain.

I'll just stick to the facts.

Jami spent about 25 minutes total on me--even though I was getting almost a foot of hair cut off.
When I paid, Jami did not even make eye contact, lazily muttering "your welcome."
I left with hair stuck to my face and neck.
The cut was pretty darn sloppy and choppy, and lacked the attention to layering that I am used to.

I don't know where all of this glorious feedback comes from. Are these real customers? I might have caught her on a bad day but that is no excuse.

Ladies, I suggest you go elsewhere.

As for me, it's off to Vain I go...

Pros: Wish I could think of one.

Cons: Overated service and skill. In basement without proper ventilation. Bad manners.

Jami has been cutting my hair for a few years now...and every time I go in to Tart, I come out looking awesome. The salon is light, airy, clean, and I've never waited to be seen more than 5 or 10 minutes. I love Jami and all the other gals at Tart!

A hidden treasure! Sneak away from the crazy world for some very special treatment. Elizabeth is always in tune to what I want, whether it's a big change or something subtle - and she'll always talk to you about it before the scissors, or hair dye, start flying! I've tried many local uber-trendy salons, and have been unhappy about something - the cost, snobby hairstylists, having an unrealistic cut or color for my lifestyle. At Tart not only do I get a great (and affordable!!!!) cut and color, but everyone is down to earth and super nice. Try them - you'll be pleasantly surprised!

I have gone to many hair stylists over the years and Elizabeth is the ONLY one to ever make me leave the salon feeling absolutely beautiful. I never really know what I want done, but somehow she manages to give me exactly what I want. She is by far my favorite and I'm so happy I finally found her!

TRACY IS THE BEST HAIR STYLIST I HAVE EVER HAD. I HAVE HAD MY HAIR DONE MY MANY STYLIST, BUT NO ONE EVER DOES AS GOOD A JOB AS TRACY. EVEN WHEN I GO SHORTER, MY BOYFRIEND LOVES THE WAY MY LOOKS WHEN I COME HOME FROM SEEING TRACY AND HE IS MY BIGGEST CRITIC.

I have seen Jill for a few years now and I thought I would post a review because she is so amazing!!! She always has innovative ideas and I never get bored with the same basic haircut. She knows exactly what will work with my hair and my lifestyle. She is honest about what will look best with my hair type and what will look best on me. I couldn't be happier and I intend on being a long time client. Recently I had a thermal relaxer and I was nervous. Jill did an amazing job and eased my nerves because she explained every step. It was obvious she has had extensive training. I'm so happy with my new found straight hair. Its expensive but worth the results. If you have ever had thoughts of having this done go to Jill. She knows her stuff!!!

Tart Salon has a great environment, I followed Tracy there from her old salon and I love it! I would never let anybody touch my hair besides Tracy. I work retail and get complemented daily on my hair! I am very picky about my hair and careful of who I let touch it, I like to change styles a lot and Tracy is great at helping me come up with new ORIGIONAL cuts and colors!

I've gone to Tart several times to visit Elizabeth and she always does a wonderful job. Whether I'm unsure of what I want or know exactly what I want, she always does an excellent job cutting and coloring my hair. It looks good straight and curly and I'm always getting compliments on it. The salon itself is very cute and clean and has a very friendly atmosphere. I also love the rotating art work.

For the past few years I have been unable to find that "it" sylist, but I have most definitly found her in Jill. I have been thrilled with all my hair cuts but I recently went for something new (a mullet, Jill called it a modified mullet) and she did an amazing job. She always keeps in mind that my hair has curl to it, so she makes sure my styles work both straight or curly. I highly recommend Jill.

My girlfriends and I took over Tart on Saturday having our hair blown out and our makeup done. Tracy is so incredibly fun, sweet, personable and of course a phenomenal hair stylist. We had some problems getting our false eyelashes on, but Jami and Tracy allowed us to come back after they took care of their afternoon appointments and fixed up our make up and re-fluffed our hair. They were so EXTREMELY accomdating - and just SO sweet. After all that I'm going to make Tart my permanent salon. LOVE this place - oh and Jami's pet pug is the cutest salon mascot ever!

...my new favorite place in Ballard is Tart!!
I visited Tart for the first time on Saturday to have my hair and makeup done for a photo session with a group of girlfriends and I *LOVED* everything about it - the staff, the space, the prices, and most of all, the results!! (And Rocko the Pug...). The ladies of Tart are everything you've read on here and more. They were sweet, patient (we were a rowdy crowd), talented, and tons of fun. I will definitely be going back to Tart!

Since I've moved here from L.A., I have been searching for a salon that will highlight my hair using the Balayage style...It has been a frustrating search until now! A friend mentioned her stylist at TART named Tracy. I have to tell you, I was a little worried when I first pulled up, because you don't see a salon. I walked into the building and down a hallway but once I walked in the salon it was GREAT, the music was fantastic, nothing mainstream, the decor is very European, airy and bright. Tracy was great! Very personable and friendly which helped me relax. Turns out she Balayaged many of her clients when she worked in L.A. but says it's not in demand here yet...Well I demand it and my hair looks beautiful!!! Thank you Tracy! I'll be back with all my friends in tow.

What a great, upbeat and positive salon!! It is decorated so cute and not a big crowded place like most salons. I saw Jill when I was there and she is just the BEST!! She can do anything and makes sure it is just what you want. She takes the time to make sure she is doing just what is right for you and what you need. No pressure on sales or services and Jill is just a nice person!! I would recommend her to anyone and I will go back again and again!!!!

I have been going to Jami for about four years now and she is nothing short than amazing. Not only is she great at cuts and styles, she is fantastic at color too. It is great to have a one-stop-shop hair dresser extraordinaire. Every hair style she gives me, I always get compliments ? from red, to blonde highlights to natural ? Jami simply makes you look wonderful.

And the other hair dresser in the salon are so nice and clearly do great work. If Jami were to be unavailable, I would not hesitate to book with one of them. It is nice to have hair back up!

The hair products and cosmetics should not go unmentioned. The cosmetics are high quality and unique. The hair products are a good value and great for hair.

I loves me some Tart!

I have been a devout follower of the cult of Jami for almost three years now, and I am constantly providing recommendations, as I am constantly receiving compliments! Jami is unbelieveably talented. From the simplest request to the most complex trend in both cut and color, she is able to not only meet but exceed my expectations every time. In addition, she is an excellent instructor on products and techniques to ensure that you are able to achieve your style at home. Everyone that I have recommended to Jami has been converted after just one visit - she really is that amazing.

She has changed my life! I was always afraid to break out of my shell and try something new. When I came in she got to know my personality and style and then let the color fly. I finally feel like the real me is shinning through. I will never go anywhere else again. Thank you again Heather.

This was a fabulous experience...I had no idea there was a salon located in this location...I walked down these stairs through quiet hallways when I hear bass rythums. Bass then turns into clear funky music as I walk through the doors of "Tart". Fun atmosphere with local artwork and friendly staff. Today, Jami made me look fabulous and we even played with the makeup. I never wear makeup but you know, you get your hair done and you just like playing with the look and we had fun with it. I had told Jamie that I like the el natural look and she found shades and cosmetics that worked real well for me (and I thank her). All the girls are so nice and I felt very "at home" with my glass of wine. I know Im just a customer but thank you Jami and Tart for the good times and I'll see you soon!

I got my hair cut and colored today by Jami then went to work. Every single person I have seen has complimented me on how great my hair looks. I came a little early and she was happy to get me started before my appointment time. Jami was fun and relaxed to spend my time with, even giving me very low key styling tips. When I went to check out, I was pleasantly surprised by the price. Overall, a wonderful experience. In the few weeks since I have been there, I still receive compliments and my hair is very easy to style. It is growing out great. I will be back.

I've seen Jill Harris 4 times for a cut and color and she's one of the best stylists around. After letting my hair "go" for a year and a half while I was pregnant and a new mom it was time for some help. A lot of help. She was exactly what I needed. She cut my extra long straggly hair into something that was hip and styly. It perfectly suited my face and she put some funky chunks of bright red into it which helped me feel a little less mom-ish. Also the all over dark chestnut color she chose for me was perfect! She takes time to discuss what you really want and need and always brings you tea or coffee as well. She's a doll! Thanks Jill!

I've seen Jill Harris 4 times for a cut and color and she's one of the best stylists around.

Pros: Funky little salon, great stylists

Jami is awesome, I love her, I love going to her salon and I love how she styles my hair. She is fast, fun, and great with color. Everyone should get their makeup done there too!

Jami, the owner of Tart, and my favorite hairstylist, is both professional and personable. The top five reasons I continue to go to her are:

5. Products she carries: All of her recommendations (like for dandruff shampoo or texturizers) have done exactly what she said they would.
4. Scalp Massage: Jami gives a mean scalp massage. Melt.
3. Price and timing: it's reasonable, and she can always get me in quickly.
2. Haircut and hair advice: Jami makes everyone look cute, even when (like me) they say "um... I dunno... i want it shortish but long... okay?" She also gave me good advice about styling my hair for my wedding myself, which I used and it looked great.
1. Jami: Jami rules. She remembers our past conversations, and details about my life, and treats me like a friend. She's also 100% cuteness.

YAY JAMI! YAY TART!

Cons: It's in Ballard

After many years of struggling to find a stylist that listened to what I wanted in a hair style, I finally found Jami. She was recommended to me by a dear friend. I am so thrilled with Jami's talent because she listens to what have to say and then once I've told her my ideas, I can hand it over to her and trust her creativity and expertise to make a hairstyle out of my vague, unprofessional descriptions. If I tell her I want a similar style, but a little more edgy - she gives me the perfect haircut. If I tell her I want a change, but want to keep this, this and this - she gives me the perfect haircut.

I have recommended many friends of all different ages, styles and hair types and they have all LOVED Jami and what she did for their hair.

Not only is she a master of her art, but she is a DELIGHT to be with. Always warm and friendly, a good listener and entertaining. Her studio space is gorgeous, classy and comfortable. I always love the art on display.

I really can't say enough about TART Studios and the owner, Jami Hammond. TART is the BEST!

Tracy Rios is the best hairdresser ever!!!!! She is so sweet, funny and not to mention incredibly talented. She is the kind of person that if you came to her with no idea what you wanted to do with your hair, she would work her magic and make you look amazing. Tracy also does my mother and my son's hair. The whole family just adores her. Tart is a very hip and stylish salon, but it also is very down to earth and warm. I would not have a problem telling everyone I know to go to Tart and see Tracy Rios.

If you are looking for a new stylist, I highly recommend Jill Harris at Tart Studio. She has all sorts of advanced skills, and a great sense of style. I can be indecisive, but I have tried a couple very different looks out. When I want to give a new look a try, she is very helpful with guidance about what might work best for me and my features. She is relaxed and fun, and doesn't constantly push all the products. She will tell me what she is using on my hair, and if I have a particular need she is very knowledgeable about recommending something that will work for me. She has awesome ability to color correct mistakes made by other salon's stylists! (I came in from another top Seattle salon with orangey & blue tinged hair that was supposed to be blond. The other salon's stylist had tried to fix her mistake twice. I was having a party that night, and she sympathized, fit me in last minute, and sent me off looking awesome. She completely saved my day!) Her cuts & color are gorgeous! Careful though- you will get hooked on looking so great.:)

Pros: Cute, stylish design

Cons: Location is a bit far from Kirkland, but worth the drive!

I am incredibly happy with the services I've received at Tart the two appointments I've had. Both times I had the stylist Heather Horton do my hair, she was great at really doing what I wanted, but also using her professional opinion/expertise to make sure my hair looked good. The other thing I really liked is she didn't try and sell me products I don't need, or create a style that is unmanagenable for an amatuer like myself. I am very very happy with the service I received.

I've been seeing Jill for about a year and a half and I couldn't be happier with my hair. Her cuts and color are creative and precise, and she is able to do amazing things wtih my fine yet wavy and tempermental hair! She is always totally responsive and professional. And Jill is a very warm, grounded and generous person who is a pleasure to talk with!

Nobody has been able to cut my hair better than Jill - this includes several salons I used to go to in NYC which were usually overpriced and always under-delivered. Being a guy, I'm not keen on sitting down and "chatting about my hair," at length to explain what I want. Thankfully, Jill spares me this embarassment by understanding what I want right away, what cut will look good, and how best to do it. The key to a good haircut, as I have learned, doesn't just depend on the style but on how the style itself is cut in the first place. Since Jill has been my stylist, almost two years now, I've had many compliments on my new cut and I can't be happier with how low maintenance it is - important for a dude always in a rush. Aside from just being a cool person, Jill genuinely cares about her clients and is always prepared to go "above and beyond" to make sure her customers are 100% satisfield as I have always been. Thanks again Jill!

I count myself very lucky to have found Jill: we've done a couple of different styles now and she is amazing. Started treating myself to serious hair care a few years ago but this different; definitely the best I've found. And Jill has been very flexible as my schedule tends to have a lot of last minute hiccups.

If you're looking for a new stylist, I highly recommend Jill. I have received many compliments on my hair since I started seeing her. I especially love the ones that say I look much younger! Jill is wonderful to work with. She listens to what I want and makes helpful suggestions. When I came in wearing new glasses, Jill made sure my cut and color complimented my new glasses. Not only is Jill talented and professional, she's lots of fun. Tart Salon is a cool place, too. It's friendly and sophisticated.

This is a great salon the stylists very competent and the atmosphere is very comfortable. I had a foil done by Heather and she did an excellent job. She actually LISTENED to what I wanted to have done. She did not 'rush' the foiling but took care in making sure they were placed correctly. The result is a beautiful, shiney and natural looking color. I have had this service done many times (at other places) before but have never been as happy with how my hair looks now.

I used to go to Tracy when she was at Allen Edwards in L.A. and tried tons of salons in Seattle when I moved up here but got so frustrated that I couldn't find anyone who knew how to cut my (somewhat difficult) curly hair. I was so excited when Tracy moved up here--and have since followed her wherever she goes.

I've sent all my friends to her and she's done a great job on everyone (straight, short, color, whatever). Wholehearted recommendation!

I can honestly say that the best hair cut I've ever received was given to me by Jami. She took the time to listen to what I wanted, knew exactly what I meant, and made my hair look better than it ever has... and that's saying a lot as I've been to many different salons in several different cities. My hair is very fine, but since Jami cut it, it has more bounce and life. Jami and the other stylists make Tart a very welcoming salon, and I plan on returning again and again.

I received an excellent cut and color service from Jami. I am very happy with the salon and the service I received and will definitely be going back. My one criticism is that I did not receive my first haircut free with my color service. Perhaps Jami just forgot when she rang me out, and I didn't realize the error until after I had left, so be sure and mention it at check out or you might not receive this benefit. That being said, I will definitely return for future services, and I hope that they will honor the free haircut on my second visit, since I did not get it on my first.

I have seen Jami for many years even long before she started her own salon, Tart, in Ballard. She was always been amazing but now at Tart the entire experience is wonderful. I trust her completely with my cut and color. We've tried many things and all to great success. Whether it is crazy, hip, or classic, you're always stylish when you leave Tart. And Jami has brought on some great talent to help her out. You can't go wrong with service from Heather or Jill either. Give Tart a try, you won't be disappointed.
