I have been happy with the foils that I get done at Ola Salon in West Seattle. I've seen Erika 3 times now, and I think she's great.
She listens well, explains carefully her technique and is quite knowledgeable about the products she recommends for me.
She even gave me a hug the last time I left. She's quite sweet!
Strongly recommend Ola. Karen is great at cutting curly hair as well.

I love Ola Salon. It's very funky, fun and homey. The stylists and colorists all feel like friends and I enjoy every time I get my hair done their. They do a great job on my hair and prices are great.

One time I was having my hair done and told them that I hated my hair cut. They told me that I should feel great about my hair and that they'd get me in for a cut after the color if I'd like to hang out a bit. I asked if I could go home for the hour between appointments since I live close. I was so surprised when they sent me home without paying and said "We'll see you in an hour. Have a good lunch". I went back, got a great cut and paid for both services.

I'd highly recommend Ola to anyone.

I have been seeing Janean Wjvold for microcurrent facials for nearly a year. I am a real convert to the process. I am a person that has done very little for my face and skin for my entire life. I had only one facial before and felt inept at skincare.
At 53 I realized that I could no longer use eyeshadow because of the crape-like, saggy skin of my eyelids. I also was beginning to notice jowls. Yuck! A friend recommended micro-current after I asked her if she had had an eyelid lift. I found Janean and now feel so much better. Janean's package deals are very reasonable and the results tremendous. We did a series of treatments and now I go in monthly to keep it up. This sounds like hype but people honestly think I look years younger. More importantly I feel younger.

I discovered Ola because they supported Lafayette Elementary's annual fundraiser - so I wanted to check them out. I have long hair and am very specific about the shade of blond highlights. Kelly was recommended to me and I am really pleased with the partial foil she did for me.Good time and great look.

I went back to Ola recently and was told Gisele had moved. They didn't mention where she'd moved - so they pointed me to a new stylist. Unfortunately, the cut i got was not very good. I wound up tracking down Gisele to fix it, and found out she was at a new place downtown (The Loft). Wish I would have saved the money by going straight to her instead of getting the run around from Ola.

Janean Janka provides a wonderful alternative to surgical facelifts called a microcurrent facelift. At first I was quite skeptical of procedure, but the results are astounding. I started with jowls and elephant eyes. Fifteen visits later, my heart-shaped face has emerged from beneath a square mass of loose skin. My eyes are also once again almond shaped.

Janean will give you realistic expectations about what microcurrent can do for you. In fact, she undersells. She works out of Ola Salon in West Seattle and is definitely worth the drive. You can receive the same procedure at a dermatologist at a much higher price. Also, she was a trainer for the company that makes the machine, so she knows what she is doing.

I have been getting blondish highlights in my hair for 10 years and have gone to great salons in both New York City and Philadelphia, and I was very impressed with Giselle at Ola Salon! Finally, after years - I've found a stylist that actually offers a bit of glamour and style in Seattle.
Additionally, due to horrid traffic, I arrived about 20 minutes late for my cut and color appointment with Giselle. She however was very understanding and took the time necessary to give me a great cut and color. I was her last appointment of the evening and I am sure I kept her there late, but I really appreciate the extra effort and will definitely return! My hair looks and feels fantastic - thanks Giselle!

Cons: None that come to mind immediately

I have followed Giselle to every hair salon she has moved to because, even in a City with so many choices, she is still the best stylist and colorist! I have a few friends that have gone to really expensive salons where they have had their hair color ruined. I always send them to Giselle who is able to fix the problem and the result is a very natural looking color and best of all, she listens to her clients. Giselle gets a Gold Star!!

I am a new client of Ola Salon. I recently started lightening my hair from black and I went in to see Giselle with this red hair that i hated. Giselle was awesome! We chatted the whole time and I felt like we have been girlfriends for years. She took her time and corrected the color mess I had, and when she went in to cut my hair she showed just how much she was going to cut. I felt so safe!! (I am a little scissor shy). My very damaged hair, now feels like silk! And the cut is amazing, probably the best haircut I have ever had! I would recommend Giselle to anyone, her personality makes the experience so fun! And also their receptionist at the front desk is so friendly, I had so much fun talking to her on the way out. My whole salon experience was amazing! Thanks Giselle and Ola receptionist!

I recently received a microcurrent nonsurgical facelift from Janean Wjvold Janka, Medical Esthetician, at OLa Spa in West Seattle. I was amazed to see how my eyebrows lifted, my eyes visibly appeared to be open wider and my jaw line and profile tightened.

The series that I took was12 toning visits, get one free ( nonsurgical facelift ) and five microdermabrasion series, get one free! That was determined by my age and sun damage. Janean has been practicing for 25+ years and is highly informative and professional. I relax while she works on my face as she practically irons out the wrinkles with her high tech equipment and gentle hands.

I find the treatments so beneficial and addicting and want to let you in on a secret. She is opening her second location inside of All Star Fitness Executive Club downtown in February. I believe that you can still reach her for a free consultation on her direct number 206.391.8381.

Definately, give her a try she is worth your time and money.

I also have a wrinkly forehead and droopy eyes. Although, I had been to Janean with excellent results I did not go back due to travel and a change in employment. I just went back for a holiday pickup and at my new job they thought I got a face lift. I had this done over a ten day period when I had a long time off combined with vacation and snow restrictions(I live nearby and decided to go for it).
The results of both the dermabrasion and the facial toning with her machine were unbelievable. Everybody really thought I was lying about having a face lift. These are quiet, reserved people who basically took a long time to welcome me to their work environment. they said they loved it.
Janean is worth every single penny. I know she is booked because I had to beg for a couple of appointments and that says something in this economy. I won't allow my chin to droop that much ever, ever again!
Call her directly to make the appointments, 206.251.9414

I have never colored my hair at a salon before because I think the price is usually too expensive. I heard of a new stylist named Erika B at Ola Salon on Avalon and she is offering the first visit for product charge only. The salon's look is professional, fun, and inviting. Though Erika is new, she is very intelligent, talented and thorough. My hair is great and it looks very natural (I covered my gray). I reccommend her to all women or men who want great color for their hair. You'll be very happy.

I'm a perfectionist with my hair. I've been to so many expensive salons..Phase 3 downtown, Gene Juarez, and I pay for the best. I wanted to find someone just as great, but for less money. That's when I found Erika at Ola Salon in West Seattle. I can give Erika a magazine picture of the color I want and she will make it happen. Not only is she very talented, she's so much fun! I feel like I'm a celebrity when I come in! And she's a third of the price of what I've been paying. I'm so lucky to have found her!

If you want great color go see Erika B. at Ola! Not only is she very talented she makes your experience a wonderful one. I have been highlighting my hair for years and spent countless amounts of dollars for foils at Gene Juarez, and I am telling you, for a fraction of the price Erika will give you twice as good of a job and a much funner experience, she has a client for life in me!

I'm new to West Seattle and came upon Ola since I ride the bus past it every day. It looks funky, cool so I blindly made an apointment for a cut and color. When I walked in I felt the creative atmosphere. They had 2 different people do my color and cut which was a first for me but it was fine.

When I made the appt they said Giselle - a more pricey experienced stylist - was available so I agreed to pay the premium to get a great haircut. I do believe you get what you pay for. Giselle and I didn't really connect and I think I was unclear as to what I wanted. The result was a random cut with no real style. Layers that were different on either side of my head. I'm surprised that the cut lacked such quality. I should've gone back to have her fix it but was too busy and a wuss I guess. Wasted $75 I'm afraid. Maybe she was just tired since the appointment was 4:00 on a Friday afternoon.

I have done it! Found the best hair stylist ever!! Saw Kelly at Ola for the first time in September and I am so pleased with my results. She was able to give me a style that I can really make it work everyday - this is really a first for me. She also made a suggestion that I change my hair color - I trusted her and I am so glad I did - I have had several people comment and ask where I get my hair colored so I am thrilled to give them Kelly's name and the Ola number (933 6702). Can't wait to go back and see her as she was really fun to spend time with too.

I absolutely love Kelly S. at Ola. She has done wonders with my hair. When I thought that nothing could be done, she did it and I love it! I've also gotten my boss to go see Kelly and she is more than happy with how her hair turned out. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you for a job well done!

My hair is very difficult to get a rich color highlight due to it being so dark. Krista Kuusisto does a fabulous job at lightening my hair in pieces and putting a rich red without damaging any of my hair. I live out of the area, but it is definately worth the drive for the results and service I get at Ola.

Literally, my friend just gained a chin. Love my friend and she has always had a fireplug body with no real chin. It was forehead to three or four double chins. I helped her lose weight but the chins would not budge and we heard about Janean's face shaping machine. After about seven treatments, her chin emerged and she looks so much better. More than that she feels and looks feminine since the first time since high school. Unbelievable results!!!!!!!!!!!!!Everything on her face changed and it was spectacular. We booked through the 391.8381 number. I gave this to my freind for her fiftieth birthday and it was the best gift I ever gave and the best she ever got.
What she got was done with electricity and at first she was scared, the results got her over that. The room is very upscale and relaxing.

I've recently been to the Ola Salon, and I must say, one of the gals there who did my hair, made me look fantastic. I've had so many complements this week on my new hairstyle, I felt compelled to put in a good word for my new hairstylist, Debbie. This was my first time going to this salon, and I was told she was exceptionally good at doing foils. I was not disappointed. I was impressed with not only Debbie, but the rest of the salon as well. I'll be returning!

The atmosphere is trendy, but they cater to ALL AGES. weather you are 16 (as my son is) over 30 (as i am) or over 40 as i have seen walk out looking fierce. she will give you the freedom to express yourself through your style. and heres the kicker! she may be standing over you, but she NEVER looks down on you! she is NICE!

I'm a fairly young guy who's new to Seattle and wasn't sure where to go for a decent haircut so I checked citysearch, as usual. This place happened to be the first 5-star rating I saw for placing in my neighborhood so I checked it out and was not disappointed at all. Avian was the gal who did the job and she's sweet, talented and interesting, which is surely a bonus when you're sitting in a chair for 30 minutes. She also happened to cut my hair exactly the way I wanted it, and for a reasonable price. They do a fine job and I'll definitely go back.

I had a hair cut with Kathy (who is fabulous) on my way home from work and decided once I was there that some highlights would be fun too. She asked around for me and Avian stayed to give my color some boost with out having to schedule in advance. They were so flexible and are very fun. I would HIGHLY recommend this place if you want some great style from great people at an excellent yet funky salon!

Has there ever been a time in your life when you meet someone at thier work and you knew by thier walk talk, taste, style and confidence that this person is doing what they are meant to do? When I first met Dawn that was how I felt. She is a creator, an artist and when she is at work she is on the ( pardon me ) cutting edge:). She will listen, confirm and move forward with creations beyond your expectations. She is a gift to anyone lucky enough to trust her talent.
Not to mention Ola Salon is a cool place to be.

When I first met Dawn that was how I felt. She is a creator, an artist and when she is at work she is on the ( pardon me ) cutting edge:). She will listen, confirm and move forward with creations beyond your expectations. She is a gift to anyone lucky enough to trust her talent.
Not to mention Ola Salon is a cool place to be.

Pros: It always start at the top and the owner is tops

Cons: You have to leave when your appointment is over.

.

Every trip to Ola Salon is truly a treat! From the second you walk into the door you are treated as though you are family. Ola has that very rare relaxed, yet professional atmosphere. I see Dawn for amazing couture cuts and Giselle for fabulous color. These girls are the top of the crop!!! If you are looking for a salon that welcomes you with open arms, Ola is the Salon for you!

I love Ola Salon. My hair designer (Dawn) has always made recommendations for me - I appreciate her looking after me! I love that the team here believes in the products and allows the creativity to flow from one station to the next. I was impressed when I was not charged for this awesome conditioning treatment because the manager believed in the product and wanted to share the experience with us. I love the feel of creativity rather than competition in the room, and you know that comes from the manager's appreciation of its wonderful team. Be prepared for loud music and an interesting team of fashion-savvy experts. Ola has them all!

Pros: Easy to find and get to, very upbeat

I have been spoiled most of my life when it comes to my hair as I've always had friends and family that were hair dressers, so I never had to pay for a cut or make any decisions on where to go. Sadly, everyone who cut my hair now lives out of state. I was nervous about going to a stranger, but Avian was so nice and did such a good job for a very reasonable price, to boot. The salon got me in on the day I called for an appt - in fact they saw me less than an hour after calling. The salon has a warm friendly feel and all of the staff are so nice and Avian is an amazing stylist. Ola Salon rocks!

It fits her and everyone there seems fun and friendly. I drive all the way up from Buckley to get my hair done because of her talent! No matter what my hair always looks great and turns out just the way I wanted it. I always thank her for putting up with me because I'm such a picky person. Thank you so much Krista and I reccomend her to everyone!! Go Krista! Keep up the great work!! See ya in a few weeks : )

Pros: fun place, great stylists

Krista is amazing!
I've always thought that it's not just the outcome of my hair that's important, but the entire experience! I've been to many salons where the stylist talks nonstop about themselves and I can't get in a word edgewise. With Krista she listened to me, as well as talked which made the entire experience fun and comfortable!
Plus, my hair always looks awesome when she is done with it! I always look and feel great when I leave thanks to Krista!
I believe that she is one of the sweetest, and most talented hair stylists out there and I highly recommend her if you are looking for a great style and conversation!

JaneTyler Facials:amazing results for face, hands, feet, body. I have never been to anyone like Jane before. She is very skilled and very caring. My facial treatments were spectacular and worth driving across the city to get. My friend recommended her and I was reluctant because I do not live in West Seattle. I just finished a series-treatments I am not likely to buy unless I really trust the person and I trust Jane more than anyone else in Seattle. She explained everything, used a combination of treatments for my combi-problem skin and was very sensitive to using certain treatments when you might get in the sun. Twenty years of facials and very few people care about what happens after you leave their room.
I mean that sincerely. Here is somebody who cares and has the most beautiful skin to boot. I was very pleased and a little surprised at the outcome because it was so outstanding. All month people have been complimenting me on my skin-it rarely happens!

Pros: I would only go to Jane for facials-rest of salon looks good

Cons: None I could think of

Finally, after years - I've found a stylist that actually offers a bit of glamour and style in Seattle. I go to Giselle because I know I'll walk out with a fashionable haircut that I'll get tons of compliments on. She's always up on the latest techniques (regularly going to New York to study), and she leaves my hair looking fantastic every time. You have to go to her, you won't regret it!

I hate changing hairdressers, I am always nervous and afraid that I will get a bad do. When I was recommended to Avian I made the appt but was nervous all the same. She was friendly and easy to talk to, a great shampoo relaxed me immediately. She took the time to discuss my hair condition, style, how i take care of it...all the things that influence how your hair looks at home. (I hate getting a cut that only looks good when a professional does it for you). My hair looked amazing and it looked that way until I rescheduled again. That is a miracle with short hair.

Plus the salon itself is relaxing and easy to be in. Wonderful staff and decor.

Avian is FABULOUS! I was new to Seattle, moved from LA, and had an amazing stylist there... I was nervous about trying a new salon in my new town... but the second I came into OLa my nerves were calmed. The atmosphere was great, very funky and upbeat... and then Avian came to get me. Fashionable, great hair, and a firm shake. She asked me how my hair was making me feel, and how I wanted it to make me feel. Told me why she thought this would look good on me, and why this wouldn't. I was blown away at how thorough she was, and her shampoo was soooo relaxing. I walked out of her chair feeling better than I did coming out of my old stylist, and it was amazing!! I found my new home at OLa and with Avian!
AVIAN IS THE BEST! Highly Highly recommend Avian and OLa to everyone.

I'm very fortunate to have found a stylist like Krista. She always knows what to do with my hair, and I leave Ola feeling and looking amazing! I have had a hard time in the past finding a stylist that can get my hair color right and the way I like it, but I know I can always count on Krista!

I sought therapeutic treatment for my wrinkled forehead and droopy eyelids prior to my speaking engagement. I was referred by a close friend of mine, who used Janean's anti-aging treatments this past year.

I expected to feel little shocks of electricity when Ms. Wjvold-Janka began placing her electric gloves on my face, Instead, the low level of electricity and Janean's healing hands relaxed me to sleep and I caught myself dozing a couple of times.

My forehead was relaxed, my headache gone, and my eyebrows higher. I was fascinated that one-one millionth of an ampere, according to Janean's explanation, could contour my face and make my smile lines less noticeable.

I would highly recommend Janean's Non-Surgical Face Lift Treatment to other ladies and gentlemen who desire to get their edge back. Call her at 206.391.8381

dawn really knows how to cut hair and i can't imagine trusting anyone else w/ my locks. she listens to what you want, evaluates your hair, gives you feedback - it's a collaboration that makes for an awesome cut and not a disappointing result (we've all had THOSE haircuts!). i just really trust in her technical ability and her judgement to tell you what would look good in accordance to what you want and your face shape, hair texture, etc. also, christina (sp?) up front is awesome too - very helpful and welcoming - great first impression of the salon esp when you are a first-time customer. and the salon itself has a very relaxed and cool vibe. i'm glad i found a great salon and stylist in WS!

Janean Wjvold is everything this reviewer and others promised. Truly a jewel and easy to work with. She gets right down to business and I really what she does. I feel and look so much better than I did before I went there.
Go to her, it is hard to explain=I had the microdermabrasion which I have had in different places all over the world. She is really one of the best. You can call the salon, i got her direct number, 206.391.8381.

Really haven't used the salon that much but when I got to Janean, I was totally wowed. Recently moving from LA, I intimately heard of every type of face lift on the earth. By far, my friends who did acupuncture or micro current were the happiest. Janean, a wondrous ball of energy and encouragement, combines both. I did the ten session series and was astounded-literally. People kept telling me that I looked better and asking if I lost weight.
The price was reasonable(all things considered) and it can last anywhere from six months to a year. A cut and paste job lasts longer and a good one costs twenty times more. This painless option shows no telltale cuts around the ear, takes an hour a week for ten weeks and is really life changing. Janean is very professional, has a very big before and after book and I am sure there are plenty of people who won't admit they use her services. This is the best kept secret in West Seattle. Our own anti-aging queen in the back of this salon. I used a coupon and that was helpful.

I love spending time at Ola's. The place is so friendly and the staff makes you feel like royalty as soon as you open the door. If you are lucky you will have Debbie working on you gently encouraging you to maybe update your color or style a bit. But always gently! When I leave there I am "walking on air" (due to the complements I receive shortly after).

A good friend of mine just got the best haircut ... and when I asked who did the cut, she said it was, "Debbie" at OLa' Salon. Well, I went in to see Debbie and was surprised by how at ease she made me feel right off the bat. She had me smiling and laughing (at myself) in no time. Not only did she give me the absolute BEST haircut I have had in a really long time, but she made it a super fun and relaxing experience. Thank you, Debbie... see you in a few months! :) JV

I have been seeing Dawn for 10 years now, I followed her from Gene Juarez and I drive from Bremerton every 8 weeks for my appt with her. In that 10 years I have never told her how to cut my hair, I have always just let her do what she thought would look good (and it always has ) . I actually get people that stop me all the time and ask who does my hair. Everyone else at Ola Salon is very friendly and the atmosphere is at the salon is very upbeat and fun! Check it out!

I'm a former Gene Juarez client and followed my awesome stylist -- Dawn -- from Tacoma to this great West Seattle salon. The vibe is hip and the decor is eclectic and inspiring. I am a designer and I feel like everyone working their is an artist at heart. KC has given me the best color that I've ever had and I don't intend on ever going to anyone else for color! And no one, and I mean no one, but Dawn is ever going to cut my hair. She can never leave Seattle! I highly recommend this salon (and Dawn & KC) to anyone in need of a cut and color.

I wan't to tell everyone about the amazing haircut I got. I went in last week see Giselle. She was amazing! Not only was she really friendly and easy to talk with, she was also completely professional and gave me the most amazing haircut I have ever had. I really had no idea how bad the haircuts were that I had been getting until I got this one.
The salon was pretty cool too and I was happy to find out that there are spa services avaiable there too so on my next apointment I can get my mani and pedi along with my haircut.
I really think Ola is fantastic and think everyone should go see Giselle.
