I had the best experience at this gem of a salon. It was my first visit here and everyone was so sweet from the moment I walked in the door. They took my coat, made me tea and took me back for a consultation. Deanna did my hair. She gave me the pros and cons of what I wanted so we decided on something a little different to better suite my skin tone and face shape. The results are simply amazing! I love it, it is so beautiful and it totally brings out my eyes.
We laughed and chatted throughout the whole appointment. I found her to be witty and sweet. After, I met my husband for lunch at this great little spot called Table 219. (Deanna suggested). A oerfect afternoon.

I did not receive my desired haircut from Studio 229's DeAnna. I think it was more or less a lack of a communication. When I said ?Just a trim, keep the length, nothing drastic,? I believe she interpreted that as, ?Do whatever you want, cut it short, I don't care what my hair looks like at all.? I should have been more clear as to my expectations; I should have brought reference material and really spelled it out for her. So I take partial responsibility for the unwanted style of haircut that was several inches shorter than I'd agreed to.

But what I will not take responsibility for is her lack of skill as a hairstylist, as displayed by my blunt, unblended layers with one side visibly shorter than the other. These errors would have been apparent at the salon had she actually styled and dried my naturally curly hair, rather than just send me on my unmerry way with a head full of half wet curls. It wasn't until hours later that my hair dried completely to resemble some sort of new age mullet. It's the worst haircut I've ever, ever had. The work reminiscent of a drunken Edward Scissorhands. I would go have it corrected somewhere else but I don't want to risk another incompetent hairdresser making it look even worse. I'm afraid my only recourse is to let it grow out under the modest shelter of a hat.

The owner was talking so loud on the phone and to the gal that was cutting my hair that I could not even think. While I was having my hair washed she stood over me and talked to my hair dresser about the schedule, advertising, the shipment that just came in. I wanted to relax and enjoy myself but she made it impossible!

I purchased a Groupon sometime last year for $50.00 which was an awesome deal! You get at least five things on there including a facial, haircut, massage, which is unbeatable! My friend and I purchased one each and went once for a facial. The place was relaxing, although was pretty empty when my friend and I got there. The room where my facial was done was really nice however, and the guy that performed my facial was very gentle. When I left the salon my skin was glowing and I was so pleased with it that I planned on going back for another appointment. When I called again for a next facial, it was so booked that I was scheduled a month out, and I ultimately forgot about the appointment. My next attempt, I had to wait another month also and on that day of, my friend and I received a call cancelling our appointments due to short staffing. Unfortunately my Groupon is expiring in November and I told the guy on the other line this, hoping that he can try to help me with an appointment instead he said that "I'm sorry I don't think i can do that" and "I'm sorry I can't get you in". I had a feeling that he wanted me off the phone and say "well that's too bad, we are busy, no other options for you". I would've been happy to not use my Groupon and pay for the service but I wasn't even offered that. It was unprofessional and untactful. That experience just made me forget about the one good experience I had there, and will be the only one. If they are going to have a promotional like a Groupon it would be nice to have more client appointments. Waiting for a month to get in, is horrible.

I stopped going to Gene Juarez after nearly 3 years because of the great hair cut and color I get at Studio 229! DeAnna is amazing with hair. She is honest and wants to cut your hair with your face, hair texture & lifestyle in mind.

I'm a convert forever!

P.S. Kurt does a tremendously fabulous facial. The neck massage and peacefulness is unmatched.

I visited Studio 229 last Saturday for my 4th time to get my haircut and color. I have had an awesome experience every time I have gone. My first time there I was so impressed with the wonderful atmosphere and the upscale look and on top of that they have the best customer service I have experienced in a long time.This has continued to be the case every time I have been there which in my experience is very hard to find. Since my first time there they have added a full service spa which is great because now I go for my hair cut, color and I get to treat myself with a nice relaxing facial!

I was in desperate need of new hair so I took a friend's advice and saw Marissa at studio 229. She was awesome and gave me a hip new haircut with some soft highlights to compliment the whole thing. I love it. It's soft and pretty but still hip and kinda funky, exactly what I was looking for.
The salon itself is an awesome space with windows that look over Broadway, art from local artists on the walls, and cool music playing in the background. The whole experience was great. I'm going back for my hair and will try their facials also!

The salon is not horrible, but it is not what is expected once you get there. The salon is in desperate need of a makeover. It is in poor repair and does not seem sanitary. I finally had to stop going there. Everyone is nice but nice doesn't cut it. The staff do not have the experience or up to date techniques and training. I suspect that the reviews that you see are 85% written by the staff themselves or given to pals to post and written by the staff. Marketing is one thing but please deliver what you claim you can offer and Salon 229 just falls incredibly short of that.

If you are looking for a salon with stylists who actually know what they are doing look no further! DeAnna, the owner, is VERY particular regarding who she hires to work for her. It took her 5 months of searching for a new stylist before she found and hired Marissa. Thank you DeAnna for your commitment to excellence!!
Studio 229 is warm, charming and the staff makes you feel as if you are a long time friend. I was beside myself from trying one salon after another, paying a fortune for hair color/foils and cuts only to be bitterly disappointed and hating my hair...especially the color! Good fortune led me to Studio 229 and into the amazing hands of Marissa. Marissa spent a long time actually LISTENING to what I was looking for regarding both color and the cut I wanted. I came to her with several years of having BAD, BAD color treatments. She went over several different color options with me, we came to an agreement, I "held my breath" and off she went. Marissa spent over 3 GREULING hours foiling tiny strands of my hair, using 2 different colors, in order to break up the solid dark grow-out I had from allowing someone else to slap one color of something considered to be blonde on my hair. Once Marissa was done and turned me around to see the final outcome I had all I could not to cry estatic tears of joy! The transformation was nothing short of a miracle and for the first time in years I truly felt beautiful! Oh, and the cut she gave me...simply amazing! Never have I received so many compliments on my hair...both the color and the cut! I'm one happy girl for certain!

I am soooo glad I came to Studio 229, couple of my friends had come here and recommended me to go get myself a new hair cut and some 'fab' color - to go see 'Ashley'. Made an appointment with 'Ashley' and I was so happy that my friends kept pushing me to go. I've had some bad hair experiences but Ashley made them all go away! Ashley was great, we talked about hair and what I wanted, and what would look good on me. Let me tell you, the experience was awesome! Ashley treated me like a queen, and she gave a great cut and fabulous color!!!!! I am soooo happy - everywhere I go I get compliments on how great my hair looks!!
I recommend Studio 229 to all my friends and to anyone who wants great hair, great salon experiences and to feel beautiful - it's a great place to go, and Ashley is one of the best hair stylist/colorist I've ever been to!

Treat yourself to a great place and experience :)

I knew I was taking a risk when I walked in off of the street (I don't usually do that kind of thing) but right away I felt comfortable. The salon was so inviting and warm and I was greeted so pleasantly and promptly even though everyone was busy. I had to make an appointment for a couple of days later where Deana was able to give me the most awesome foil and hair cut.
Not only did she take the time to consult with me about my color for over 20 minutes, she also talked to me about how the hair cut could be change to better suite my face shape, my hair growth pattern and show off my new color . Just when I thought it couldn't get any better she gave me great styling tips. She showed me how versatile my new hair cut could be. Now guess what? Two days later--I can fix my hair the same way she did! I will definately be back.

Located off of Broadway on Capitol Hill, Studio 229 is one if the best spas I've ever been to. The studio itself is very modern, upbeat, and lively ( I LOVE the artwork and flowers...and the reading material, haha), which I find rather refreshing. Everytime I go in, I'm welcomed warmingly by the owner Deanna, as well as all the other staff. The service is always to my satisfaction and I appreciate that the employees there are extre
mely attentive, and not satisfied until I'm satisfied. I would also like to mention that while the hair stylists are exceptional, the estheticians are remarkable; the new member of the Studio 229 team, Kurt Dickson, is absolutely amazing, he made waxing the goods (Brazilian) simple, quick, and as painless as could be. He is a wonderful addition and I would recommend him to ANYONE who needs assistance with anything regarding the skin.
All in all Studio 229 is the real deal for Capitol Hill! Take a chance on it, you will not be disappointed!!

DeAnna is a wonderful hairstylist. She is extremely professional and fun. The other stylist are just as much fun. I'm always completely happy with my haircut from there. The salon is very clean and organized with a great presence to it.. Everyone is extremely friendly and personable.

My last experience at studio 229 was a nightmare, Deanna worked on my hair and couldn't give me anything I asked for, the cut was wrong, she was in a hurry, and she couldn't give me the color I wanted, she just talked over me and did a color that she thought was better, I was miserable but tried to keep trusting that It would be good, it wasn't. I was there for almost 6 hours, in and out of the drier, she used tons of product in my hair that was unnecessary and then charged $250, I have been going to studio 229 since 2000 and have always had Heidi do my hair, and it was never over $75, and she would cut and do whatever color and funky highlights that I wanted. She was the best! All the great reviews here about her are so exact. Last when I called, I had asked for Heidi and I got an attitude that she wasn't there anymore and that she couldn't help me contact her. So I decided to trust the situation and a new person do my hair. It was terrible, she seemed stressed, irritated, and rushed. And I was the only one there... PLEASE somebody help me find Heidi!!!

Business Response:

Response from DeAnna Usually I do not respond to negative comments but since I have never met you before I felt obligated. I do not know who you are and I have not done a Vanessa's hair so it is hard for me to identify you. I strive very hard to make each client happy and have never in my life spent 6 hours on a client unless it involved extensions. If you want to write a negative review please be honest. We do not charge $250 for color work. Even with a hair cut our maximum price is $180.00. I have been doing hair for 29 years and garantee my work so if you would like to call me and arrange an appointment I would be happy to rectify anything you are displeased with. As far as where is Heidi? She left here over 3 years ago. She could be anywhere by now.

I had a facial done by Katrina and she made my skin so soft with a wonderful glow, she also maintains my perfect brows!
To complement my beautiful skin I see Deanna for perfect hair. She always answers my many questions about color and the results we pick are always a work of art. She also gives me great cuts and always has products that work with my thin hair.
Studio 229 is a very fun salon to visit. All the stylists are kind and experienced and I really enjoy my appointments.

I had my hair cut at another salon it ended up sticking out here and there. I was wearing a hat because of it.
I had heard that Studio 229 was a very good salon. I needed a redoe badly. I didn't think anything could be done but Chloe performed a miracle!!! I now can go out without my hat. I will get my hair done at Studio 229 from now on!!!
I had a facial and body wrap done by Katrina. It was like being at a wonderful spa!!! I was in heaven.
A quiet peaceful state and in the hands of an Angel!!!!

In the past, I used to go to a beauty school to get my hair died and cut. The beauty schools might have been cheap, but they messed my hair up more than anything. I have been getting my hair done at Deana's for about six months, and the first time I went in she spent more than 5 hours on my hair recoloring it to undo the damage from the other salons. She puts a huge amount of effort into making your hair look amazing, and is willing to take the time to do it unlike some hairdressers ive had who may get tired or impatient. I know that she has been in the salon business for more than 20 years, and is very knowledgeable about what colors look the best, what cut complements your face... It is well worth the money and I get innumerable compliments from my friends about how "natural" it looks. I would definitely recommend this place.

If it weren't for Studio 229 owner DeAnna I would have been destin to a life with one bad hair day after another. DeAnna was able to fix an extreamly bad bleach die job that was created from another hair dresser. My hair was broken and damaged beyond what I thought was fixable. She did her magic and I now have a great cut and color. I have sent all my friends to her and all have been extreamly happy with her care,and talent.

DeAnna gave me a great haircut. I'm always picky when it comes to my hair and she did an exquisite job. She was extremely knowledgeable, making me feels very confident that my hair would turn out as I desired. I recommended this salon to all of my friends.

I returned to Studio 229 to receive a facial and I was equally pleased. The esthetician, Katrina, was very friendly and educated. That's the best facial I've ever had. I highly recommend this salon to all.

I'm very picky with the type of haircuts I get and was tired of not getting what I wanted at other hair salons. I've now been getting my hair cut regularly with Deanna for 2+ years and I'm more satisfied with the quality of her work each time. Not only does she listen to my instructions and ideas for my hair, but she also is able to transform my instructions into amazing haircuts.

At my latest haircut almost three months ago I told her I wanted to grow out my hair to have long layers in front and in back, with no bangs--- she was able to give me the haircut and style so that now that my hair is longer, I have exactly what I asked for-- my hair has grown out and the haircut I got has adapted to my longer hair. She is very talented and knows what she's doing.

Overall, I'm impressed with her professionalism and the quality of the service. She's also honest about what she thinks of your ideas, which means that she offers useful feedback.

The owner colored my nieces hair and did a terrible job. My niece ended up with hair dye all down the back of her neck and on her face. Deanna, the owner, who did the dye job, also ruined her shirt and didn't even seem phased or sorry about it. Deanna promised my niece a refund, but the check never showed up. Deanna is dishonest and rude. I would not recommend her, not sure about the other stylists. I was totally disappointed with the lack of professionalism and poor customer service.

Mosk was all about making the experience seamless as he matched my individual skin needs with the ayurvedic products he used. He incorporated massage technique at various points throughout my facial leaving me feeling 'out of body' wonderful.

Let me start off by saying, I am one of those people that always sees something better a few days AFTER I get something done. I got my hair lightened by Chloe, the dark brown color gave way to a rich, almost red color. I LOVED IT, but then realized I had nothing to wear with my new hair color that didn't make me look washed out, my navy blue uniform just wasn't cutting it. Stupid right?! Well that's me! So back to Chloe I went, and after a quick consultation with Chloe (and the owner Deanna, sorry if I spelled it wrong) we were off on round two.

Perfection! My brown hair was back, but this time it was a little lighter with all the red tones poking thru! I can't tell you how many compliments I have gotten over the past two weeks. And at 37 I'm starting to feel the need for as much help as I can get.

I also got my eye lashed darkened and my eye brows waxed at 229 by Mosk. He did such a great job! And once again just being me here, I would rather let my eyebrows grow together in an epic hedge style unibrow before I let just any strip mall goto touch me with cotton and wax.

I have found a wax man and a colorist in Seattle. I have yet to get my hair cut at 229, I am trying to let it grow out. But this is the place I will get it done when the time comes!

Thanks everyone at 229...

Others agree that Chloe is totally off the chain. If you are tender-headed, she is certainly the stylist for you. She is super gentle.

Her sweet southern charm combined with her knowledge and professional skills will keep you coming back. Although she is creative and masterful, she will not talk you into getting something that you didn?t want. She listens to her clients and offers suggestions from her perspective and background.

Before you know it, you will be one happy customer.

I just love her so much! I?m sure you will too. Studio 229 is one of the best salons around. It is encapsulated in a wonderful location with all the latest features. What a treat! I love getting my money?s worth, and Chloe will save you a bundle. Check out the 10% off and other discounts available.

Don?t forget to mention that you read her review here. If agree with me, please post feedback.

Ashley Yeager is the reason I went to Studio 229 to have my hair colored and cut. I heard from friends that she is simply the best! I made the appointment and when I got there, I found 'studio 229' to be a great space, natural classy vibe - and then I met Ashley! She's awesome - told her what I wanted, we talked, she had great suggestions and as she started working on my hair, I knew I was in good professional hands.. Gotta tell ya, I've had lots of color and cuts done to my hair but never have been treated as well as Ashley treated me, she kept me comfortable, so easy to talk to and best of all what she did for my hair - I felt gorgeous! When I looked at my finished hair, I fell in love with the color and cut - I will be definitely be going back, glad I found my new 'hair place'.
I've been recommending Ashley Yeager and Studio 229 to everyone who asks me about my hair - can't help it, I want to share the fun - I just love having great hair and now everyone else can have great hair too!!

Pros: Awesome Hair Care in a Fun Classy Salon

Back in June this year, 2008, I, a male, went to what I thought was a high end salon. By their prices you would think this was the case. I told the girl what I wanted done and even had a picture of the cut I wanted. Now I realize that this new cut would not look exactly like the picture, but I thought it would give her a general sense of what I wanted. Boy was I wrong. It then took 6 months for my hair to grow out before I could get it cut again. This time though, I read the reviews of Studio 229 first. then made an appt. with Elysia for a consultation. Best thing I ever did. During the consult, she was very up front with me in regards to the picture I had, the same one as before, and how my hair would not look just like the picture, but I knew she knew, what I wanted done. The next day I made an appt. and a few days later was sitting in her chair. I don't mind saying that I was a little nervous. When she was done, and I looked in the mirror, I was so relieved. She got it and gave me the best haircut I have ever had. Thanks Elysia.

I have been seeing Eysia for almost 2 years and I never plan on going anywhere else. I get a great cut and style, good hair salon conversation and a great price ($45). The only negative is parking but it is worth it and fun to be up in the cap hill shopping area.

After relocating to Seattle I was faced with the usual dilema...whose going to cut and color my hair to make me look better than I deserve? Honestly, packing suitcases and boxes is easier. Thank god for the internet...after reading all these amazing reviews, I gave this place a try. Deanna (the owner) really sets the tone for this great space. Fun, personable and a top notch professional.

The place is spacious, clean and the staff is warm...no attitude or pretentiousness here. Now for the haircut and color. Phenomenal! I am able to style it several ways, the color lasted longer than any other place I've been to, the free maintenance cut is a great bonus. I used to get my hair cut and colored every 3 wks just to keep it really nice (kinda obssesive...) now I can go 5 weeks with the complimentary maintenance cut by the end of the third week. Now that is a great value.

And it's really fun to go there, seriously. I've been to many salons that were really nice but there was always an air of tension, or drama or both (maybe because I'm originally from LA (duh...!) You feel relaxed and pampered here. My partner also got an awesome hair cut and color from Chloe...she's wonderful, but I'll let him speak for himself.

Thank you Studio 229 for making me feel and look my best.

What is it with those other "so-so" hair cut and coloring specialists, that just can't get it right? You tell them what you want, you pay up the ying yang, and two weeks later... ohh, what happened?

My first visit to studio 229, and my post-maintenance experience puts the others to shame. Chole got it right both the first and second times around. You walk in and are greeted with respect and kindness. The studio is upstairs overlooking Broadway. A place of calm!

My partner and I, who has his hair done by studio 229 owner, DeAnna, were recently complimented by a neighboring business employee who complimented, "Guys, you two have the best hair!"

So, instead of the scary mousey brown I was getting from the competition, I got what I asked for, and exactly what I wanted.

All I can say is, call, make an appointment, go in, get pampered, and walk out looking FAB!

I have been going to Studio 229 since it opened so I have always known what a jewel this place is. I used to be able to get in at any time but now many others have discovered this place and I have to make appointments well in advance. Still it is worth it and I have flown from Arizona and California many times to get my hair done there. I have never found a place that comes close to giving me the great haricuts and color this place does. DeAnna rocks!!!

This place is a hidden treasure! The atmosphere is chill while still being in the middle of the action on Broadway. And Chloe is so rad! My hair was kinda blah when I first went to see her. She told me right away that she wanted to make my hair more fit my look and personality, which is tattoos and rock & roll. She helped me push my boundaries with the cut and it turned out so rockin! And the color she suggested was just perfect! I got second looks on the street and compliments from strangers, which is always a good sign! On top of being the sweetest little southern bell, she'll be my stylist for life!

Listen up people!!!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my time spent at the lovely Studio 229.
Let me just start out by saying I have been back living in Seattle now for just about 3 years....and in that 3 years I have been to over 10 different salons/barber shops/spas etc. looking for that perfect girl (or adorable gay boy as the case may be) to not only do exactly what I ask for, but to have that rare, inate sense of just how I want my hair to look.
And believe me there has been some major bumps along the way.
Then I stumble into Studio 229. I sweet little salon nestled in the very heart of Capitol Hill....(also a salon that has been there for 18 years) which happens to give me a sense of comfort.
I came into Salon 229 for a specific reason, to get hair extentions.
As anyone might guess this is quite a long process, so I spent the majority of my day here.
This Salon has a super cute vibe, beautiful paint job(think deep purple's & rusty golds) and super fun stylists that arent pretentious in any way!! The wonderful woman that did my hair Ms. Deanna(or as I like to call her Mama D) was RAD! She was super fun to talk and hang out with while extremely quick and efficient in getting the job done(I would think it would be a tedious task, but she did it with strength and ease). Leaving the end result with me litterally throwing my head around like I was in one of those Pantene comercials.
The color, the style, and that fact that the extentions blended so well with my real hair has won me completely over. My search for the perfect hair salon has ended with Salon 229."

I moved to Seattle last year and dreaded the prospect of finding a new stylist... I'd lived in LA for 2yrs and it took me 1.5yrs to find a good one. As luck would have it, the first place I called was Studio 229 and Elysia had a slot open. Every haircut i've gotten (over the past 9mos) has been awesome and maintenance cuts are free. Also, after each cut, Elysia makes a point to schedule my next maintenance and haircut - thank god, because I always wait too long and end-up annoyed with my hair... no longer thanks to Elysia's scheduling approach. Love her. ASK FOR ELYSIA, you wont be dissappointed.

I called Studio 229 and made an appt. to have my hair foiled and cut on a Saturday. Okay, I had to wait a couple of weeks. Wow, was it worth the wait! Deanna gave me the most stunning color I have ever had. Every single day someone compliments me on my hair. I love it! The contrast of color along with the shine after a hair color is amazing. I'm not sure how she diid it but it is beautiful. The cut also compliments the color framing my face so well. I am truelly in love with my new do.

I've been going for years and love the atmosphere-it's comfortable, upbeat, up to date and just fun to hang out there . . My stylist, Courtney is fantastic and I finally let him do what he's wanted to do for ten years-cut short my reddish bob and bleach it! scarey but my daughter came with me to make sure I let him do his "magic". It took me several days to love it but have to tell you, EVERYONE loved it-even a stranger came up to me and complimented my hair! I just went in again for another cut-this time shorter and scarier but once again I've received many compliments and again I love it! For a short time I went to a more convenient location downtown slated as one of the best hair salons and as they were very good, Studio 229 is just as good for half the cost. (hope they don't read this.) not to mention a fun time on Capital Hill!

I found Studio 229 on this web site and decided to give them a try and they gave me the most awesome new hair cut and color that I have had in years. They totally updated my look. After trying several other places in Seattle that I was unhappy with I am so glad that I finally found this place. They were so sweet and treated me with respect. My stylist listened to me and consulted for a long time before just jumping in and doing whatever she wanted. Thank you!!! I will be back.

I made an appointment with Deanna to get my extentions tightened. Speaking to her on the phone before confirming the appt. we talked about in detail what I needed done. I drove 2 hours, arrived on time, only to be told she didn't have enough knowledge of my hair to prepare for the appointment (told her on the phone) I needed to buy new hair (mine is only 6 weeks old, told her on the phone) and she didn't have enough time to do my whole head (confirmed 150 strands on the phone) Once I was visibly annoyed by her lack of knowledge and professionalism, I was asked not to be "p___." (Apparently I can not write the word she used on this review.) On that note, I asked her to remove the cape and drove 2 hours home. I would advise confirming that you DO in fact need your entire head styled, tightened, cut, etc. before making an appointment with Studio 229. I always thought the customer was number one... Not in this case.

If i had wrote this after my first hair cut here it would have been glowing, but my second trip was horrible! The same girl cut my hair but did such a bad job I actually cried- and I do not get upset easily. It was less than shoulder length and had an almost 2 inch difference in layers on either side. Which is MASSIVE on hair that short. Also i asked for the "side swept bangs" and she cut one side of my bangs about an inch long and the angled the other to just above my eyebrow, and added layers to make them really, thick and puffy. Its taken months to grow out and it still looks wierd. She couldnt understand why i didn't like it, i told her it was uneven, she blamed my hair then started chopping randomly with thining shears (i have very straight, fine hair by the way) in an attempt to make the sides match (instead of matching the layer length) Things were only getting worse so i told her to just stop. She still charged me $45, she never even showed me the back which i later learned she had cut into a zig zag!?
When i had my hair fixed the next stylist could not understand why anyone with any training at all would have cut my hair like that. she just shook her head saying "what was she possibly thinking? why would anyone do this?"

If i had wrote this after my first hair cut here it would have been glowing, but my second trip was horrible! The same girl cut my hair but did such a bad job I actually cried- and I do not get upset easily. It was less than shoulder length and had an almost 2 inch difference in layers on either side. Which is MASSIVE on hair that short.

I came to ctiy search months ago trying to find a stylist. The ratings for Studio 229 were so high that I thought I could trust this place. I have been back to Kerry 3 times. I can really trust her to color and cut my hair. She is a sweet person and really talented colorist.

Pros: Nice and qualified staff

Cons: Parking

229 has a great, warm atmosphere. Many fine experts on their staff for many things like color, dreads, cuts and (I hear) waxing. I'm sure each of them is an expert in their own right, but I personally suggest Elysia. She is freindly, efficient, quick and thorough. Is very easy to tell her what you would like done and see it come together quickly, showing a great dedication and enthusiasm that shows her 10+ years of experience.
With so many overrated and unprofessional salons out there, It's great to see Elysia and the excellent staff at 229 remind us all what a great hairdressers can do!
Props, folks! Keep up the fine work!

Pros: Freindly staff, warm atmosphere, inviting area

Kerry is a great stylist. She is up-to-date on the current looks and you'll have a blast shootin' the *&%$ while she manicures your mane. I wouldn't entrust these lucious locks to anyone else. Go check her out, you won't be disappointed. Come on, would I lie to you?

Elysia is an amazing stylist and she does the best color! I started going to her at another salon and have followed her to Studio 229. She fixed my problem hair color that I was doing at home into the most beautiful blonde! I will never do my hair at home or go to any other stylist other than Elysia....she's the best and is also the sweetest person ever! She also does the best cuts....always listening to what I want and how I maintain my hair at home. I love the new salon as well and highly recommend Elysia!

Kerry is an amazing stylist and she has her own awesome style! I used to see Kerry back in 2002, and I was so bummed to lose her and her miracle styling abilities when she moved away. Finally, I can dry my eyes now that she's back in Seattle at Studio 229. If you want complex color and a great cut, you can't go wrong with Kerry!
