I just discovered Iolite Salon after my previous stylist moved out of state.I was particularly searching for someone who uses Wella color, as it works so "wella" in my hair! ;) As fate would have it, I found Marciano/Iolite online and

This is going to be a unique posting, because I left my first visit with Brooklyn happy, but not DYING over how perfect everything was. The funny thing is, she's so amazing because she did EXACTLY what I instructed her to do during my visit. (I have control issues with stylists) I think she sensed my uncertainty when I left, and she reassured me that if I needed anything at all, simply to call her cell phone and let her know. Well after 2 or 3 days I did, and let me tell you, this girl is a class act. She had incredible training at Vidal Sasoon for years, and it's clear her hair skills aren't the only thing she learned from them...

I called her to ask if I could come back in to have her revise one or two small things, and she was SO accommodating to me, I couldn't believe it. She never made me feel bad for a second, even though I basically asked her to re-do what she recommended me to do the first time around (I was too stubborn to concede) and my hair is flawless now. She was so sweet and professional, and my hair truly IS amazing. She took her own time to fit me in and do her job right.

Really, if I had shut my mouth the first time and trusted her like everyone says to do, I could have saved an extra trip. But I'm so glad to see customer service is alive and well in Brooklyn's chair, I gave her a huge tip the second time around, especially after she gave me a great first time discount and still took such good care of me when I wanted to come back, and she didn't charge me a cent.

How refreshing after years of dealing with pretentious, self-absorbed stylists. Brooklyn's got all the bragging rights in her talents, and a great attitude in service and customer satisfaction as well. Thank you Brooklyn, you're a doll and you will have my business for years to come.

Pros: so professional, Brooklyn is Oregon's most skilled stylist

I moved here 4 years ago and always fret when I need to find a new stylist. I searched citysearch for the best reviews & came across Marciano's name and shining reputation. I took and chance and haven't strayed since. I have A LOT of hair and he always knows just how to cut it to make it not only manageable but beautiful as well. He does amazing color too & is simply just a sweetheart. As long as I am here, Marciano is the only I will trust to mess w/ my locks!

Pros: friendly staff, comfy setting, not sales (add on) driven

I found Brooklyn online and saw her this month. She is so amazing! She has such a warm smile and made me comfortable right away, it's scary trying a new hair person! My hair was so awful, I told her I hadn't been to the same hairdresser more than twice in a LONG time before she even started because I was skeptical. I asked a lot of questions, and she never made me feel bad about it. She informed me so well, and even told me no when my ideas wouldn't work, which actually impressed me. I trusted her and my hair looks SOOOO good! I've had so many compliments already, my hair styles easily, JUST like she said it would, it falls right into place!! My color is so pretty and natural, just like I wanted because I'm low maintenance. It make take me a few months because my hair is so amazing, but I promised Brooklyn I'd be back to see her because I'm so impressed and I look so good! Thank you so much Brooklyn, you're the best!! And thanks to all of you who posted reviews about her, because I trusted you and found her too. This is my best hair ever Brooklyn, thank you, xoxo!

Marciano is an artist. He has cut my hair for over 3 years and he always knows what to do. He is just really good at what he does and he always makes me feel great during and after my cut. I leave the salon feeling like a princess., with great hair of course... =)
Totally recomend him.

Pros: Best HAIR stylist ...

I heard Brooklyn does hair extensions at iolite salon and I went to see her because I HATE my hair. It is so fine and weak, it never looks pretty. I booked a consultation with Brooklyn and she answered all my questions and I felt so good, I placed an order to get extensions with her asap. She took such good care of me, and my hair is SO AMAZING! The kind she uses doesn't use glue or bulky bonding things, so my hair won't suffer whenever I decide to take them out (which may be never!) and my hair looks so friggin amazing, everyone loves it!! Even my skeptical mom ran her fingers thru my hair and said they feel great too. I am so excited to have the long pretty hair I always wanted, thank you SO MUCH Brooklyn, the confidence and happiness you've given me is priceless.

Pros: beautiful hair, ordering hair didn't take long, Brooklyn taught me SO MUCH!

I saw Brooklyn last week and I have never been happier with my hair. She is friendly and easy to talk to, she understood my fears and really listened to what I wanted. She gave me a really good first time discount and I will SO be going back, I have never looked better or been happier with my hair. My color is SO gorgeous, TWO strangers complimented me while I was out shopping this weekend and I gave them Brooklyn's card (she told me she continues discounts when her clients refer new people). Thank you so much Brooklyn, you made me so happy and I could never thank you enough.

Pros: amazing hair, discounts

.

The place may be small, but the results are HUGE. Brooklyn is not only professional and extremely talented, but sweet and personable, too. I gave her free reign with what to do with my hair. She chose a new look (that got me some compliments) without totally reforming my "look" or making it appear unnatural-- just more beautiful. She has an excellent ability to listen to what you want and can still apply her fabulous personal touch. You won't be sorry.

Cons: prices are on the high end of normal--- but worth it.

I went to Brooklyn after a friend had been to see her, and my friend's hair told the story for her... though she was happy to give me details! I noticed her new look right away and asked where she had been. It was all I could do to keep my friend from jumping across the table in praise of this stylist, so I got her information and set up an appointment. My big seller was that my friend still looks like herself, just BETTER. I will do the same for others as my friend did for me, refer them to Brooklyn because I came out of her chair looking and feeling ten times better than before. She was friendly, so well educated and not pushy at all. I loved her and truly think anyone who meets her will too.

Just stop, seriously. Get your bag, get your coat, walk out in the snow and go see Brooklyn! I don't care where you live, I would literally walk for miles in this snow to see Brooklyn and look as good as she makes me look rather than go anywhere else at the cost of losing her magic touch on my hair! She colors hair SO AMAZING, I will never go to anyone else. She taught me how to blowdry my hair at home so much better (no one ever teaches you that stuff) and she always makes me feel trendy and pretty at the same time. Just the smallest changes she makes, make such a huge difference, you can just tell she really knows what she's doing and that she cares a lot about what YOU want. We have so much fun; we laugh and talk with the other people in the shop, she gives me two hours of free therapy every time I see her... she's priceless!! Not only is my hair better than it has ever been, EVER... but I really enjoy spending time with Brooklyn, she is my favorite appointment to have in my calendar!!

Thank You Brooklyn!!! Love Mel xoxoxo

Each time I leave Hawaii to come visit my daughter in Portland, I always look forward to getting a haircut by Brooklyn, and every time my hair looks incredible. She's personable, listens well to my concerns and has a great eye for balance and proportion. I've gotten so many compliments on my hair it makes the long flight worthwhile. Incidentally, my daughter thinks she's amazing too. I really wish she would move to Hawaii. Aloha!

Brooklyn rocked my hair today! She squeezed me in because I had such a hair emergency, she made my hair color look SO good and shiny. My hair looks healthy, it feels amazing, and she even made time to fix a hair cut I got LAST WEEK from someone else. I look so much better and I love my hair. Brooklyn is so worth it. Call her, seriously. When was the last time YOU loved your hair this much?

Brooklyn is BY FAR the best hairdresser I've ever met!! My hair was so tragic at this time last week, my own boyfriend was blown away when he saw me today! I had really bad grow out, I waited so long because I'd HAD IT with my usual hairdresser and was waiting for my fairy-hair-godmother. I FOUND HER! Brooklyn made my hair SO gorgeous, I finally have the beautiful, creamy blond tresses I've always wanted. She listened, worked hard on making me look perfect, and gave me exactly what I needed. THANK YOU BROOKLYN!

I was checking this place out online and it seemed pretty cool, so I tried Brooklyn and she did a great job. She listened to me, taught me how to use my brushes and products a lot better than I knew how, and she really rocked out my hair color. Plus she was really fun and made me comfortable, I loved her and will definitely be back.

My room mate found Brooklyn on citysearch and saw her a few days ago. When my room mate walked in the door lookin like a movie star (and I was layin on the couch looking like a slob) I couldn't believe how good she looked. So I called to get in with Brooklyn, because I needed help like nobody's business. She stayed late on a saturday for me, and I told her to color and cut my hair however she wanted because she made my roomie so hot. She went over ideas with me and made me comfortable right away. I gotta say, I may have outdone my room mate! My hair is so shiny, it feels healthier that it did BEFORE I colored it, and every penny was well spent with Brooklyn. She actually CARED about my hair, what I wanted, and how I felt when she was done.

I called Brooklyn after a girl in my mommy group saw her and came to a play date looking like a million bucks. Brooklyn listened to me, realized I'm a mom with no time to myself, and gave me exactly what I've been in need of: a really great hair cut I can wear down or in a quick ponytail, and GORGEOUS hair color I don't need to touch up every 6 weeks. She even took the time to show me quick tricks with bobby pins I can do when I'm in a hurry but don't want to feel so frumpy. I'm pretty sure I'll be leavin the kids with my husband once every couple months though, just so I can see Brooklyn, unwind, and keep feelin like the good looking mama I am!!

Pros: A weekend friendly stylist and feeling like a new woman!

I am so lucky I found this page and read these reviews, because finding Brooklyn is the best thing that's ever happened to my hair! I had totally given up on my limp hair, let alone my damaged blonde color and decided I may as well give Brooklyn the chance to figure out my problems. And holy hair salon it's true: SHE'S AMAZING!! She (rightfully so) convinced me to cut a little length off my hair, and she gave me the CUTEST bounciest haircut. Then she weaved two colors through my hair not only making it gorgeous, but fixing the icky color jobs I've been getting elsewhere. I admit, I'm really picky and kind of horrible to deal with in the salon, and I have NEVER loved my hair like this before! Thank you citysearch for having Brooklyn here, and THANK YOU BROOKLYN for listening, your attention to detail and for making me beautiful!!

Shelby cut and color weaved my hair and did an outstanding job. I'm never certain exactly what I want done with my hair and she did a GREAT job making suggestions, listening to my input and giving me a great cut and color. I LOVE my new cut and color and will definitely be a repeat customer. I highly recommend Shelby.

I make my living on how I look, so obviously my hair has to be perfect no matter what. I'm photographed constantly, and my job depends on how well I keep up my appearance. I moved here from LA not too long ago, and I was in need of a new hairdresser immediately. I found Brooklyn here on Citysearch and went in to iolite to see her. Thank God I found her! My hairdresser in LA is so incredible, I was sure no one could measure up. But Brooklyn made me look better than he did! My color is RIGHT ON, it's perfect. Not only does it look perfect at home, but at work too. My hair is shiny and gorgeous, I can't believe I got so lucky to find Brooklyn.... if I could take her to work with me around the world, I WOULD. I'd recommend ANY Portland newcomers, color first-timers, or people who are tired of the same old hairdresser to see Brooklyn!!

Pros: The best colorist I've ever had

.

Brooklyn SAVED my hair from absolute disaster! Last month I had made the mistake of attempting to save a dollar and lighten my own hair with box-color from the grocer. What I ended up with was a disaster. I was sick over it; my hair had turned brassy yellow! I was frantic and desperate. I was so upset, and had no idea what to do. So I asked my coworker (who always looks so polished) who could fix my obvious problem, and she sent me straight to Brooklyn. By the time I met Brooklyn at iolite, I was nearly crying. She calmly told me my options, and very professionally took me under her wing. She TRANSFORMED my hair, deep conditioned it and when I was done, she had literally changed my life! My hair was better than I could have ever imagined. She managed to remove the yellow, and match the colors in my hair to even out my skin tone. Brooklyn is truly a gifted and talented professional. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to look and be the best they can be. Brooklyn is an artist of the greatest capacity, and I will be her client for life!

I just got my hair cut and colored at iolite by Brooklyn for the third time and have to get the word out that there is this wonderful stylist in downtown Portland. Since I moved to Portland a couple years ago, I had not been able to find anyone who could or would cut my hair in a fashion-forward style that looked attractive on me. Before finding Brooklyn, I would go home from a haircut, look in the mirror, and exclaim 'holy cr-p!" These were senior stylists charging top dollar and my hair went from bad to worse, month after month, until I had a head of very fuzzy half-grown out hair. I was getting desperate, folks! On one of those desperate days, I found myself walking past the Iolite Salon in the Pearl remembering how I used to get the coolest, very precise, architectural haircuts in the 70's by a Vidal Sasoon-trained stylist in Seattle. I was wondering how to go about finding someone like that again, but in Portland. On a whim (sheer desperation really), I stopped, walked into the salon, and started talking nonstop about my terrible haircut to the first person I saw. Brooklyn took a real interest in what I was saying (I'm sure I seemed like a mad woman), really listened, and gave me confidence that she could remedy the situation over the next several haircuts while still letting the hair grow to a medium length. As we talked, it also came out that she had trained at Vidal Sasson in California. How is that for coincidence? The bottom line here is that the fuzz (from improper razor cuts on coarse, thick, curly hair) is almost all gone, the cut is groovy-cool, and the color (honey blond with highlights and lowlights) is amazing. My hair looks great, and I am so thankful to have found this exceptional stylist in Portland!

Pros: beautiful color, finally getting the haircuts I love

I had never colored my hair until one day, I figured I'd try it. A friend referred me to Brooklyn, but I tried a different stylist instead. After wiping up my tears over my horrible hair color, I made an appointment with Brooklyn. She was SO kind to me and talked me through everything. After being traumatized, I was quite the challenge to comfort. Brooklyn explained everything to me about my hair and my options so I could try to relax a little more. Somehow, she made my color perfect, it was exactly what I set out for in the first place! She saved my hair, and my confidence in hair stylists! It's been over 2 years in Portland now and I STILL love my color every time.

Thank you for working me in so I can get my hair done for a dinner. I am a hispanic man and my hair is very hard to cut. No one yet has been able to do the job Shelby did. I always came out looking like a bowl was put on my head and now it has style and she thinned it out too. Thanks A lot Shelby! SWEEEET~!!!

I tried Iolite for the first time today - my first "real" haircut since having a baby just over a year ago! I saw Shelby - she was wonderful! Really easy to get along with, friendly and genuine. And my hair turned out great - the best bangs I've had in ages, my hair looks stylish now. My hair is long, with long layers, and now with long bangs that make me look more pulled together. The salon itself is light and bright, clean, and not crowded. Despite being in the Pearl, parking was easy - at noon I got a spot right in front of the salon, and there were plenty of other street spots available.

Great service once I entered the door! Shelby has been my hairstylist for ten years. I came in with five inches of growout and she listened,, was so patient and took so much time with me. I appreciated the great discount and the wonderful head massage. Parking is really easy to find. The receptionist is so awesome and welcoming. Iolite is upbeat and really bright!

I got lucky finding Shelby at Iolite Salon.. She was great listner and gave me just what I have been looking for. Everyone was very friendly and I was made to feel right at home.
I walked out of there feeling so much better about myself. Defently give Shelby a try you will not regret it!

The only negative part was the parking however the glass of wine made up for it.........

Brooklyn makes me beautiful!!! I walk into Iolite Salon looking like a tired hag and walk out appearing to likes of Jessica Simpson. I usually play it safe - of course, I sit in her chair for 15 minutes and talk about going brunette or taking it to a super-short bob, but I usually chicken out and stick with the All-American blonde, long and layered look. Brooklyn always does exactly what I want. I went to a guy once that argued with me about how my hair should be cut and in the end, he cut it how HE wanted - he was horrible! That never happens with Brooklyn, she may suggest ideas if I'm not sure what I want, and her ideas are always awesome, so I'm like, YES, do that! I did get a little adventurous once - I had Brooklyn cut an angled bob, longer in the front, with platinum blonde on the top and dark brown underneath. It looked so amazing. The angled cut was so good that it still looked great, even as my hair grew out long again. So, not only can Brooklyn make me into a beautiful, blonde bomber OR an edgy, angled minx, but she is cool as hell, too! You can sit and talk with her the entire time, but if you're having one of those days and you just want to sit quietly and get your hair done, then she will totally follow your lead. And she gives Aaaah-mazing head massages at the shampoo bowl - HELLO BIG TIP!!! Lastly, even though I'm a natural brunette but highlight the hell out of my hair to live as a blonde, my hair is still so HEALTHY! I don't know how Brooklyn does it? Beautiful color, precision cuts and healthy hair. Finally, my search for the perfect hairdresser is over!

I was never very fond of my hair until I went to see Brooklyn. She suggested something completely different than I would have ever imagined trying (she wanted to take my long hair and turn it into a bob!). I took a leap of faith and I am so glad I did. My hair looks healthy, feels amazing, is easy to take care of and really complements my face. I will keep going back to Brooklyn, she knows what she is doing and has a great personality. Thanks to Brooklyn, I finally love my hair!

I found Brooklyn by stopping a woman on the street last week to ask where she got her hair done because it was GORGEOUS. She handed me Brooklyn's card and said how much she loved her, so I called that day. My hair was ruined by this guy in the Pearl and I thought I was surely doomed and out of luck in the hair department for a few months. It was brittle from bad color, wimpy looking and just plain awful. I asked him to PLEASE NOT RAZOR my hair, and he practically did the macarana with it on my hair. So I went to see Brooklyn, she was friendly and made me comfortable right away. She looked through my hair, gave me some options, and I decided to let go of a couple inches to get a shape that actually looked good on me. I won't go any further on my patchwork hair color which I also saw no hope for. But OH. MY. GOD. I look like a famous person now! Brooklyn gave me the hottest, cute haircut, my color is SHINY, and gorgeous, and the best part is, 30 minutes after I left the salon, someone stopped ME to ask where I get MY hair done!! How cool is that?! You can bet I gave those girls Brooklyn's card. I'm never leaving her!!

When I get my hair done, I like for it to be a soothing experience. Brooklyn always makes my hair beautiful, and I like to catch up with her and laugh a little, but I like to relax overall. I know she's taking care of me while I'm with her, so I'm never anxious about what I'll look like. Also, Brooklyn always allows me to have private, quiet time to read if I'm not in the mood to chat, and I love that. Of course, I love walking out of the salon with beautiful fresh hair color and confidence too!

Pros: beautiful color, stylist isnt pushy on product, I get quiet time

.

Brooklyn is just the best. I have very long, straight hair and had never colored it before I met Brooklyn. I am a flight attendant, and a mother of three, so it's difficult for me to find, well, ME time! Brooklyn talked over my options with me, and we decided that a natural highlighted look would be best for me. Boy she was right! Brooklyn gave me GORGEOUS highlights. They didn't damage my long healthy hair, they grow out beautifully (I see her once every 12-14 weeks) and she touches them up PERFECTLY every time, so I don't get blonder and blonder each time my roots need to be colored. Brooklyn is kind, professional, fun, and SO well trained in what she does. She really puts the needed care and effort into my hair to keep it healthy and beautiful, and that's what was most important to me to begin with, and what makes her worth my money every time I see her.

Cons: none

Not only is Brooklyn an incredible person, she is an amazing colorist! I never enjoyed the whole hair process, but after I met Brooklyn, that changed. I came to Brooklyn with long, curly, orange... yes ORANGE hair after a bad experience elsewhere. Brooklyn transformed my messy hair into locks of beautiful, honey-colored highlights and I haven't left her side since! I look forward to seeing her shiny smile, hearing her great stories, and her cheery disposition. Every time I leave the salon, I feel and look so much better. Brooklyn has definitely changed my outlook on the entire "hair experience" and she definitely helped me manage my unmanageable hair!

I moved here from Phoenix a few years ago and have been looking for a great stylist ever since?that is, until I met Brooklyn. She is very warm and caring and has the experience, the vision and the artistry! She especially delivers on the color. Every time I step out of her place I feel great and look 100% better than when I walked in, and to top it off I always get a ton of compliments on her work. Thank You Brooklyn...you rock!

Every time I step out of her place I feel great and look 100% better than when I walked in, and to top it off I always get a ton of compliments on her work. Thank You Brooklyn...you rock!

Cons: Parking

I have been to so many salons in Portland and have been left disappointed too many times. I was walking by iolite yesterday and stopped in to get a consultation, hoping to get some help and end my bad hair days. I was referred to Brooklyn and she was so nice! She made me very comfortable, and is so much fun to talk with. She gave me several ideas and she was actually able to fit me in. Half way through my haircut, I learned she was fully trained by Vidal Sassoon, and I got even more excited. My favorite haircuts in the past have been from sassoon stylists, and sure enough Brooklyn gave me the haircut I've been praying for. The funny thing is, she told me she specialized in color, and my haircut is perfect! I look younger, I feel like myself again, and I will definitely be back.
