Love the new high lights I got last week! I was not sure about them at first because I had never added any sort of color to my hair before, but I am just in love with the cut and color, thanks!

After years of trying to find a great salon to go to, I finally found it! Volero salon far exceeded my expectations. I stumbled upon Volero while searching ""best salons in Oregon"" on the internet and I thought ""why not give em a try?"" It was the BEST decision I ever made! Neptune was an absolute angel, not to mention a master at color correction. Victor is obviously an artist and understood exactly what I wanted without me even having to say too much. I went into Volero salon feeling insecure about myself and left feeling like I was the most beautiful girl in the world. If anyone is looking for the BEST salon in Oregon, you have to go here!!! I will never go anywhere else. Thank you Neptune and Victor!!

I am VERY picky about my haircut and she nailed it right the first time. She is also really efficient which I like.

The salon that I have been going to for years keeps messing up my color and it ends up looking almost orange at the roots. I went to Volero on a whim because I saw it had good reviews and was in dire need to get my hair color that way I wanted-finally! My hair color looks better than ever and I cannot wait to go back for my conditioning treatment. Becca does my hair, but I think everyone who works there is very talented.

I recently moved to Portland and the hardest service for me to commit to was a new hairstylist. I have naturally dark hair that I prefer to be very short Platinum Blonde. My hair does not bleach easily and the haircut shows when the cut isn't done right. I based my search this time on Paul Mitchell products because I know that it works and others didn't. I found Volero salon. The price was more than I liked but not out of line for high quality salons and I needed my hair done. The salon is artistic but not cluttered. The girls who greeted me were very nice and Victor was suave and sweet. I loved the stylist station mirrors custom made to resemble artist easels. My stylist Emanuel made me feel very comfortable. After a consultation he started on my hair. From the beginning I could tell this was going to go really well. Emanuel said he was once a trainer and that also added to my confidence. Emanuel took great pains in each step of the process and explained as he went along. He used techniques I recognized from other salons like not mixing all the bleach at once so it doesn't get dry. After a very nice rinse and scalp massage, I was back to my beautiful platinum blonde. Emanuel cut and styled my hair and I was done and out the door in what I considered excellent time!!

Volero is much more than a salon. The haircuts are $45 for women and that is the cheapest I found thus far in the area of salons. Also, Volero is also an art gallery. There are wall murals and paintings everywhere. I highly recommend Volero, this place is awesome!

In between apartment viewings and a lunch appointment, I looked up the closest hair salon to me for a quick trim. I called Volero and they said they would be willing to take me right away without appointment. So within 5 minutes, I was with an iced tea, getting a haircut, and my hair shampooed. I got a great cut with just enough time for me to make my lunch appointment

This salon is disingenuous, deceptive and artificial. I got my hair cut, by Victor, for 1.5 years. The first year I was impressed with him and his salon, but the last two visits were terrible and truly reflective of his nature and his business. The two visits were BIG disappointments. Over the course of time I visited Victor, he did not call me by my name or remember details about me or my hair. I have beautiful hair, and every visit he would tell me I needed to do some treatment, like a color, clarifying and/or conditioning with color. I refused each time and got fed up the last two visits. It always felt like the receptionist, Neptune, and Victor were used-car salesmen whose main objectives were to sell products. I have a healthy self-esteem and did not fall for their ""opinions"" about my hair. This was the first salon, in my entire life, where a stylist advised me to color my hair. Usually, stylists are strongly against me coloring my brown hair with natural blonde highlights. Think about it ladies - This salon feeds off of low self-esteems of women with insecurities. This salon makes money by constant maintenance. Don't fall for their scams! Also, Victor was upset when I requested a blowdry because he insisted he is unable to do a haircut without flat ironing, but that is because he is really not an artist or a skilled stylist. I have lived in Beverly Hills where salons are against flat ironing and feel the skill in cutting is by allowing movement and being truly talented. Flat ironing is considered ""cheating and faking"" cuts. One appointment, Victor arrived to the building 40 minutes late with his coffee and laughed it off. The last visit, Victor hit me on the face with the blow dryer and again, laughed it off. He is very unprofessional and gave me the WORST hair cut last time, which is why I go to Picasso now. I had to get my hair completely redone. Lastly, Victor solicits positive reviews from clients; he asked me to write one. Be careful for what you ask for, but this is the truth. Ladies, don't believe all the other positive reviews!!! Victor promotes his business on Citysearch, Yahoo, Google, etc. Pay close attention to the dates of when the reviews were typed; there is one almost every week, and they're mostly perfect 5s. Most people type negative reviews, after a poor experience, to alert and warn other consumers/customers. Many businesses are faking reviews; it's easy. Also, many businesses have less than 20 reviews, and Victor has over 100. That is extremely suspicious, especially considering someone already responded to my review, and in such a personal manner.

Victor is a terrific hair designer! He doesn't cut hair, he designs hair. There is a BIG difference. My last haircut was the best I've had. I highly recommend Volero. Conveniently located in downtown Lake Oswego.

I am a guy and I am from Virginia making this concept a little foreign to me. I also had NO idea that a haircut could be such an experience. I left looking amazing and feeling very confident which is VERY important for young professionals. The pampering does ruin me for the rest of the day but I can live with that. I am excited to see what Victor does next!

I visited Volero salon after a friend got an updo and she highly recommended that I check them out. The whole experience was professional from start to finish. The front desk girl was friendly and made sure that I was checked in quickly and I thought I looked amazing when I walked out of the salon.

My hair dressed moved! Bummer for me?? NO not a bummer at all... I visited Rebeca at Volero for the first time last week for a cut and color. I am thrilled with how both turned out. Rebecca took the time to really consult me up front on the best style for my face and really listened to what I wanted for color. The result was an excellent new hair cut with very natural, refined highlight. I???m so happy to have found a new stylist and will look forward to long relationship with Volero.

Victor-Your hands are worth every penny and more! Since getting my hair styled by you, I have seen a real transformation. My hair is strong and healthy and now I know how to style it myself so I do not put it up every day. The damage is gone and has been replaced my shine!

Volero, Victor Hugo was referred to me by a friend who loves her hair and has now be a faithful customer for years. Then, I went. The moment I walked in I was treated with attention, love and kindness. I sat in their artistic waiting room as they offered me tea or a glass of wine. I was in awe of the environment with art and handmade easels for hair stations. I was truly excited as I anticipated what would come next. I was then guided to Victor Hugo's station, one of the owners of the salon. His wife, Neptune and himself, looked and my hair and then created the blueprint of a most amazing design! \r\nHe was magical, intriguing and I knew he was really tuned in to me, my line of work and creating a picture in his head about how he would create a new and more vibrant expression of ""ME"" . I watched his beautiful and thoughtful eyes as he creating a picture of me that would soon change and transform my world. I was given a new color which consisted of multidimensional highlights and a funky hair cut that kept my length but brought much more fullness. At the end of my time with Volero, I officially called him my personal Shaman hair dresser. I cant wait for my next experience with him. It is an enlightening time to sit there and be transformed on all levels. He is fun, wise and shares his inner wisdom and his incredible experience of years being a world class hair designer. It is the best salon I have ever been to, Thank You Neptune and Victor!

My hair does not lift easily and the haircut will show any fault the stylist may make. I based my search this time on Paul Mitchell products as the Paul Mitchell bleach truly lifts my dark color to platinum. I found Volero salon. The price was more than I liked but not out of line for high quality salons. The salon is artistic but not cluttered. The girls who greeted me were very nice and Victor was sauve and sweet. I loved the stylist station mirrors custom made to resemble artist easles. My stylist ANTHONY made me feel very comfortable and at ease, so after a consultation he started on my hair. From the beginning I could tell this was going to go really well. In conversation I learned that Anthony had extensive experience and was once a trainer, and that also added to my confidence. Anthony took great pains in every aspect of the process. I recalled here and there with past stylists some of the techniques he used, but he used them all together! These were the secrets of making an excellent head of platinum hair. After a very nice rinse and scalp massage, I was back to my beautiful virgin blonde. Anthony's skill with scissors was also very impressive and I was done and out the door in what I considered record time!! That's amazing! I highly recommend Anthony and the Volero Salon.

I went in wanting to get an ombre look and came across this salon through groupon and I'm so glad I did b/c I think I found THE salon! The staff were so friendly and welcoming! Becca was AMAZING, highly recommend her!!! =D I just love the color and cut she did for me. She really took the time to make sure every detail was catered to the look I was going for and what would suit me the best in terms of face shape, hair color, and skin tone. Being a college student, going in, I felt pricing wise it was bit of a splurge for me, but I think the end result was so worth the money spent. I'm looking forward to my next visit with this salon!

Have been going to Volero for years and consider them to be an extension of our family. The haircut has always been spot on, but what sets Victor's establishment apart from the rest is more than simply the technical proficiency with which they cut, color & style; it's the atmosphere created by the staff. Rather than going the cold, impersonal, cost-cutting direction of leased chairs and pretentious, hyper-competitive personalities, Victor worked tirelessly to surround himself with peers & proteges who shared not just his vision of the craft, but an enjoyment of humanity and human interaction; employees who project Victor's characteristic passion & soulfulness. The result: a soulful experience that never fails to improve my mood and make my day.

Becca is so good!! She gets my hair so close to the root and does excellent blonde!! I love her! I am super picky about my hair and used to drive 4 hours to get my hair done by my old hairdresser. Three of their staff members spent 15 minutes picking the best color of blonde for my hair! I feel spoiled when I go in there! It is Lake Oswego and it is expensive, thats the only downfall. But you will be happy with your hair and you won't have to get it done as often because of how good she is. This salon is amazing and everyone who works there is amazing, Becca is just my fav!!

i believe my last experience will speak for itself: i received not one, not two, not even three or four (i stopped counting) compliments on my hair after leaving volero on saturday. i've been going to victor for, it must be 3 years now, and every time i've trusted him with my hair, i've looked fantastic. he's great at listening to your concerns and creative in tackling them. i love when the entire team gets involved and each lends their expertise to really give you outstanding hair. fantastico!\r\n\r\nxoxox,\r\nthe blonde bomshell (thank goodness for internet ambiguity.)

I took advantage of Volero's groupon when my normal stylist went on maternity leave at an Aveda Salon. I was very happy with my former stylist, but what I received at Volero from Emmanuel was in another league- I'm now a regular customer. I went from platinum bleach-blonde (ruined!) hair back to my natural very dark brown, and the color he did was amazing- I never had to get it re-colored from fading! Also, the haircut was absolute artistry. My poor head has never received that kind of attention to detail. I can trust Emmanuel to give me a chic, unique cut while I am growing out my hair. Volero is fantastic!

I have very thin hair and no one has ever cut it to make it look thick and luxurious--but for the first time, I love my hair! I have had so many compliments on the style and the blonde highlights! Becca was so warm and friendly that she made me feel very confident in her abilities. I will follow her anywhere! I will never have anyone else touch my hair again--now that I know I can finally have beautiful hair! Thank you for such talent!!

Emanuel is super talented. I don't think there is anyone in Portland that can come close to his skills. He listens to what you want and is very accurate. My hair was a mess and E has revamped it. He is also very kind and super easy to be around.

I started seeing Emanuel about a year ago and have never loved my hair so much! The color and cut have been amazing every time!\nI fall in love with the color combination's that Emanuel uses on my hair each time, always the same tones and hues. However, he knows what I love but has a way of keeping it new and different each time.\nI can not tell you how many times I get stopped by people complimenting on my color and cut after I get my hair done by Emanuel.

Emmanual Santana is my hair guru! No one has been able to duplicate a color by E. Not only is my hair truly platinum when he is through with it but it is so healthy people believe it is my natural color. I have so much confidence in his abilities that I do not drag pictures into the salon for him to see before he cuts.... I know that he will give me the right style for my face and my hair. His talent is addicting!

I have never experienced such keen discernment and proficiency in a stylist before nor been able to have complete confidence in an individual to such a degree that I can walk in to the salon and not have said a word, yet he already know what is needed. Emmanuel Santana started perfecting my appearance about a year ago and no one has touched it ever since. He remembers every aspect of the formula that I swear he seems to pull out of thin air and yet with perfection every time. This level of knowledge cannot be artificially generated, it take time and years of experience to gain this vast amount of knowledge that he has obtained. Volero is extremely fortunate to have Emmanuel Santana on their team.

They LOVE what they do and they should because they're GREAT at it! Each salon technician has so much to bring to the table, but what's so impressive is that they are always sharing the details of what they did for each client's hair with one another to put out even more magnificent results. It is apparent that they extremely enjoy making their clients feel welcome & that they want them to love the results. Their staff is so easy to talk with and they are always eager to listen to how they can help you.\r\nThank you for a truly wonderful experience! Your salon has such a balance of professionalism, cutting edge techniques & one-of-a-kind, warm customer service!\r\n(They also have a talented make-up & hair removal specialist who was able to do an expert job for me while I was waiting for the color in my hair to cure. Now that's service!) -kb

I purchased a Groupon for a cut and full color at Volero as it?s a great way to try out new Salons. During the six (yes, I said six) hours that it took them to cut and color my hair (I was ?sharing? my stylist) I sat and listed to every patron be verbally patronized by the staff and basically be forced to shell out more money to get what they had supposedly already paid for in the groupon. It?s a classic bait and switch ? a practice that I find not only deceptive, but also dishonest and disrespectful.\n\nIt has been 2 weeks since my appointment and the color as already faded, so much so that my coworkers asked if I had had it re-done as I told everyone how terrible my Volero experience was.\n\nI am amazed to read all the rave reviews for this salon. If you enjoy being told ?never gonna happen? when showing a picture of a style you like, or that ?your hair is terrible, its going to take at least 3 visits to fix it? when there was nothing actually wrong with you hair before you walked in, or if you have amazing low self esteem and think this kind of ?friendly? advice is what you are overpaying for ? great. For anyone else stay away.\n

Walking into the Volero I was caught off guard by the clear craftsmanship that went into creating the Salon. Had my haircut done my E-man, one of my close friends, and he gave me the best hair cut of my life. Also the owners are super nice, always a big warm smile when I walk in. I truly believe that they know how to meet anyones needs that walk in. So all around 5 Stars across the board! Highly recommended!

Emmanuel has been my hair stylist for the past 8 years and I can't even explain with words how wonderful he is. God has blessed this man with the most talented hands and an eye for perfection! Once ""E"" touches your hair, you'll never stray away.

I have been getting my hair done by Eman for a year and a half now and have never been happier with the way it's looked. I don't think I realized what a really good haircut looked like until I started going to him. He is truly a master at his craft and I completely trust him. He is great at reading his client and helping them look their best. I highly recommend getting in to see him before the word spreads and he is booked solid for the next year -It's just a matter of time.

I have been a loyal customer of Eman Santana for a couple of years and so have my 3 daughters. My hair went from straight up flat black, lack luster color to very healthy, shiny hair that has a beautiful depth of color...and I am constantly receiving compliments about it!!\nThe salon and all the people that work there are incredibly warm and welcoming, so it's a pleasure to go and spend the time in the salon. The location is easy to get to and so is the parking...a big plus!!\nEman is the real deal, truly an artist!! I would recommend him highly if you want to achieve a beautiful head of hair!

NO NEED TO SEARCH ANY LONGER! \r\nTALENTED, PROFESSIONAL STYLISTS (yes, plural). \r\n\r\nI initially called the salon to speak with someone who was a color expert. I enjoy reds in my hair but struggle with the constant fading of the truer red pigments, I like spice! I spoke with Neptune who was super friendly and helpful; made me feel right at ease that I had found the perfect place so I skipped the consultation and made the appointment.\r\n\r\nI show up for my appt and what a place! I love all the art, the mirrors in each station were unique & fantastic but the best was really the stylists & staff!\r\n\r\nI have a very chaotic life. I work a lot so no surprise that I was about 20 mins late to my appt and there was no tisk tisk, it was more like a genuine ""relax, we're glad to see you"" which was an ultimate diffuser. The wine was great too.\r\n\r\nWhen I sat in the chair, four stylists converged to talk about my hair, looking at it, discussing what we were going to do, what not to do, what kind of cut and color would be sassy, hip, and have dimension (all of the things that were important to me). \r\n\r\nAfter the whole conversation (not rushed at all mind you), I gave them creative license and became the recipient a SMOKIN' CUT & COLOR! The cut frames my face perfectly, the sweeping bangs are sultry, the layering is maticulous, the custom color (that they chose & mixed) couldn't have been any better selected.\r\n\r\nThe whole team experience was great. One (or two) people colored my hair and Victor cut my hair. TRUE PURE TALENT. I am so happy I found you all!! Thank you for the transformation!

I have grown up in the Portland area and have not been able to find a place to get my hair done that I really love. I think I have found the place. I really enjoyed the experience there. The staff were all great and attentive. I love my haircut and color. I can't wait to go back. I always have a hard time figuring out exactly what I want and Victor and his staff were able to help me decide and tell me what they thought would be best. The all worked together to help me have a great time and get a great look. Thanks Volero team you are awesome. I look forward to coming back. Definitely worth the extra time and money.

I've lived in the Portland area, now, for 8 years and I've FINALLY found a reliable salon!\n\nVictor is a fabulous hair designer...much different from just a hair cutter. Each cut works perfectly for my face and I've never been disappointed. I needed a way to cover my gray and to uplift my dark hair. His crew added highlights and the color they selected looks awesome! This is a very team oriented establishment. I've had 3 people converge on what to do with my hair. Everyone has a ""say so"" and they love what they do. Volero is the salon for me!\n\n\n\n

I have followed my hairstylist Emmanuel Santana to Volero Salon! Last night was my first visit to the salon and I completely enjoyed it - E hasn't missed a beat in this move and I believe that he has joined a great team. \nEveryone at the salon was very welcoming and truly wanted each of the clients to have a great experience.\nSalon pluses: open salon concept, everyone worked as a team, overall calm feeling, PARKING!, and very friendly.\n\n

Great hair cut and color, but they didn't give me what I asked for. I asked for three different things: dark color, bangs, and keep my hair as long as possible while trimming. I got my hair cut pretty short, blond color, and no bangs. Then they charged me extra because I had so much hair. Well my hair was cut after the color; maybe they should have cut my hair first, since they took so much off.....so why was I charged $245 for cut and color?
I like these people, they are very nice and well-meaning, good atmosphere but I am still unhappy with being overcharged.

I am a new Volero client. I appreciate their team approach and Victor's amazing styling skills... my hair is fine and his cuts give my hair life and volume. The interesting thing, however, is that this is not the best thing about Volero for me...the best thing is the stylists themselves. They are passionate, creative, warm and caring. I've had deep discussions in that chair... and felt great connections. Volero is unique, special. Go. They'll take care of your hair...and you.

I recently had my 2nd experienc with Becca. The first time, she had to correct a color disaster that occured from another shop. She did a great job!\r\n\r\nThis past weekend, I had Becca do a cut this time. She did an awesome job! She knew just what I was saying. I am a very busy professional that has little time to focus on hair ""issues"". She gave me a great, stylish cut that I can have fun with.\r\n\r\nI really appreciate the Team's time and willingness to assist me. Becca takes her time, listens, and performs. I wasn't rushed out for the next client and she made me feel totally welcome. She has a great personality and knows what she is doing.\r\n\r\nI am very pleased with the results. The prices are also great. I believe that I've found a new ""hair home"" and am grateful to finally find someone who knows what they're doing! Believe me, this is not an easy thing to do.\r\n\r\nThank you, Volero!!!!
