I just discovered the Pulse Salon. I have curly hair, and have visited most of the hair salons in downtown Portland trying to find someone who would cut it well. I finally gave up and started trimming it myself, which although bad was better than many of the cuts I got. I finally decided that I would give the Pulse Salon a try, after reading about the awards they have gotten. I had my hair cut there this week, and I am soooo glad I gave hair dressers another chance!!

My first impression of Pulse Salon was great. Pulse Salon is in a classic old building, right across from the Main Library. The atmosphere is wonderful - welcoming, comfortable, classy, but not not pretentious or stark. It is clean, open, and polished - a bit like sitting in a grand old hotel in London. The staff were friendly and approachable, too.

Suzanne cut my hair, and let me say, she understands hair. She spent a lot of time looking at my hair dry to determine how my curls fall, and how much to cut off when it is wet. It's rare to find someone who knows about curly hair, let alone someone who can discuss curl spring factors! It was not necessary to tell Suzanne how to cut my hair, she instinctively knew how to do it right. My curly hair curls now, instead of frizzing; it is well shaped and just the right length.

I really appreciated the way that Suzanne told me what she was doing as she cut and styled my hair. It was good to know exactly how she recommended I care for my hair, and some of her tips have been a real time saver for me.

If you have curly hair, or want to find a comfy salon, or simply need a hair dresser that KNOWS hair, then visit Pulse Salon. Just let me get my appointment in because I found them first!!

I wouldn't know what to rate them because I didn't go there! I'm only disgruntled at the fact that I had no choice but to miss an appointment for something extremely important. It was only a consultation (they said the appointment was going to be around 10 minutes long) so I didn't have to pay them until the actual day I had an appoinment for them to actually do my hair. But if you missed an appointment, they won't let you come back and make an another appointment because it keeps their girls from getting paid because they could've booked a paying costumer in that time, which I completely understand, but I had no choice but to miss my appointment. And aren't they losing money by not letting people re-book an appointment? I sincerely don't want to be a b***h but I was honestly pissed.

PLEASE READ
Oookay so I went there and they were amazingly nice and there is no possible way you can be mad at these people. They are REALLY nice so when i wrote the review above, I was probably just PMSing or something hahah but it's a great place!

I get my eyebrows done at Pulse. They are super fast and the price is extremely reasonable for downtown. They are only 1 block from the max station as well.
