Paige is the stylist to see. Honest and genuine. \r
On that note.... Platform lost their stellar front end gal thus leaving the place in a lurch. Now you call and get voicemail. They will call you back. So phone tag,for now, is how you

If I could give Jodi more stars, I would! I have been going to Jodi for a few years now and have never, ever been disappointed with my hair. I always walk out loving the style she has given me and feeling like a new woman (I know, that was totally cheesy). Jodi always listens to what I want and does a fabulous job paying attention to every detail. She is a bit of a perfectionist, which I love!\n\nI usually have relatively long hair and Jodi always does an amazing job of keeping it beautiful. I am so sure that Jodi will give me an incredible cut every time that I've trusted her to cut my hair into a chin length bob as well as add full bangs. No matter what style I'm going for, Jodi can do it perfectly!\n\nOh, and I should probably include a bit about the salon, too. It's a nice little place with friendly staff. I've always felt very comfortable and welcomed, which is not always true for higher end salons. They always offer you a beverage and provide you with plenty of reading material. Platform is a great salon, but Jodi is definitely the reason I will always keep coming back! :)

Shelby is an incredible stylist. I used to work in an upscale downtown retail store. I helped women all day finding the best fitting clothes. I always kept my eye out for the customers hair styles and cuts. One day a woman came in with the most beautiful hair cut I had ever seen-and I had seen many! I asked if she would mind telling me who cut her hair. She said, 'Shelby'. I found Shelby and have followed her thru 3 salons! I love Platform for its choice of expert stylists, comfortable and professional setting but most of all, I would follow the delightful Shelby anywhere for the best hair style in town!

I've been going to Nickol for years and just followed her to Platform. Platform is a great salon but Nickol is awesome at color and recently started to get my hair cut from her. I'm not the only one who appreciates Nickol's color skills but my friends and even strangers comment on how great my hair looks...Thanks Nickol

I've gone through may fair share of salons over the years. A friend of mine suggested I try Platform Salon. I did and I'm so happy that I found this place. Pauline, the owner, has transformed my hair. The color looks amazing and I love the style she has giving me. Not only is Pauline a very cool gal she really knows her stuff. She listened to what I wanted and came up with a sassy new look for me...LOVE IT! I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair color in my life. This salon is very trendy. You can enjoy a glass of vino and check out the latest photos on the walls, all while getting an off the charts scalp massage. Bottom line if you want fab hair from an upscale salon without the upscale attitude then go to Platform and check out my gal Pauline.

I recently returned from a year abroad from China and was in desperate need for a haircut. I had a stylist in China who had given me a new style of haircut and I was worried that it would be hard to replicate it with another stylist here in Portland. April new exactly what to do, she listened to my ideas about it but also put in some of her own ideas. She was very precise and wasn't rushed at all. I will definitely go back to her in the future, probably next week since my last haircut with her was over a month ago and my bangs are getting long! I would definitely recommend April, you won't be disappointed!

Molly has been doing my hair for over three years now. I followed her to Platform from another salon and it was well worth it! \nI repeatedly get compliments on my blond locks by random people and I owe it all to Ms. Scrutton. If I want to try some new color she is always honest of how it will look with my fair skin tone and my wanna be frizzy hair that she tames down to a beautiful straight look or a soft curled look. Going home after seeing Molly is a waste - it's time for heading out on the town or to see friends and family. I highly recommend her and say if you are need of a new stylist, try Molly! \n

Update to the dummy at the front desk that couldn't schedule appointments. He has been replaced with a sweet, smart, polite receptionist. We should be back on track now. Thanks.

Normally someone messing up the schedule for my haircut isn't the end of the world, but today it happened for the second time with this salon. Ja'nein did an amazing job and I'd recommend her to anyone, but I'm was so disappointed today because I called the salon about 2 hrs prior to my scheduled color (or so I'd thought) and the dummy at the front desk who I'd booked the appointment through over the phone, but also confirmed with him in person when I was down there, never wrote me in the books. This is my second scheduling mix-up here so I am not sure I'm going back. Again-great cut and color, but they need a better scheduling software or something!!

I just moved here from the east coast in July, and looked hard for a recommended stylist. Ja'Nien Sisk's name came up 3 times, so I had to try her. I can't tell you how pleased I was with my very first haircut. I have found that many stylists are very sloppy with men's cuts. Ja'Nien gave me the best precision cut I have ever had. She was on time, very professional and truely listened to me. I have been back twice and when I saw this site I just had to give my ups to a great stylist and a very nice salon. The price is well worth it.\r\nATS1

After meeting with virtually every hair extension artist in Portland, I met up with Andrea and I am so glad! She is amazing. Very creative. Professional. Interesting. And, most importantly, she cares about what I look like; wanted me to look my best--not like some other stylists who make it all about them. Not only did she make me look amazing (I've had such a great summer with beautiful hair!) she gave me her contact numbers so I could call her with questions and come in and see her (free of charge) if I had any issues (I haven't) -- she's just terrific. If you are thinking of getting extensions she's the person in Portland to see. The other thing, after sitting for over 5 hours at the salon while getting my extensions I can tell you that the there is great talent in this salon. I saw many patrons come in looking like ordinary people and every person left looking amazing. And the receptionist is just great, friendly, knowledgable, helpful .... I highly recommend this salon (any stylist) and especially Andrea for extensions. It's a must try!

I have been going to Jasmine for over 10 years. She has always done the best job and I have never been unhappy with her work. She always takes the time to find out what I want and will advise me against making bad choices. I always look great when I leave and would highly recommend her to everyone.

Andrea at Platform Artistic Salon saved my hair and gave me the best extensions and hairstyle I have ever had. About 7 months ago I went to a salon here in Portland and they tried bleaching my hair from jet black to blonde within a couple hours. Well needless to say all my hair melted out right there is the rinsing bowl! I was horrified and had to wear a wig the past 7 months. I had looked all over town the past 2 weeks trying to find someone that could give me extensions now that my hair is longer and correct the color of my very damaged hair. Every salon I went to for a consultation either said my hair was too short for extensions or they could do them but I would not be very happy with the results. That is untill I found an add on craiglist for Andrea who works at Platform Artisitc Salon. I went to the consultation and she was very confident that she could give me beautiful long blonde hair and give me the color I wanted. I went ahead and booked the appointment and I got exactly what she said she could do. I went from having extremely short ugly colored hair to long beautiful blonde hair. I am so happy with Andrea's services that I would reccommed her to anyone. I have had professional extensions before and they were never done anywhere near the quality and unbealivable results as with Andrea. Not only did my extensions come out beautiful but my hair that onced felt damaged is now soft and feels very healthy. She also cut and styled my hair to match exactly what I told her that I wanted. For me I have always explained to a stylist what hairstyle I wanted and I never really got what I had pictured in my mind. Andrea knew exactly what I wanted and I left totally shocked at how beautiful my hair looked. I will never go to anyother salon, stylist or extensions specialist other then Andrea at Platform Salon.

After two disappointing salon experiences I walked into the hands of Molly at the Platform Artistic Salon in the Pearl. She heard my sorry story, she saw my sorry hair, and she worked her magic! Simply awesome results. Came home feeling like a new person. Her color technique and her haircut was just suberb. Kudos to her neighbor stylist who spent 4.5 hours on doing hair extensions the same day. Really nice atmosphere, friendly, experienced, non-pretentious people..

I feel so lucky to have finally found a amazing stylist. I have been on the hunt for longer than I can remember. A good friend of mine suggested April saying I would love her. I can't tell you how right she was. I loved everything about my visit. Not only do I look amazing, but she listened to me and gave wonderful suggestions. I have never had better color with a perfect cut. I left feeling good about myself and had so much fun talking to April. She is so talented and such a nice person. If your looking for someone to make you look great, and also a cool person, go see April!!!!!!!!!!!!

One way to know you have a great haircut is that is still looks stylish on the day you go in for your next appointment. Stacy has been making me look as cute as possible for the last 10 years. Through all the changes, I love how it turns out, and it is always simple to take care of. She is professional and artistic, and lots of fun to talk to. She's not afraid to give her opinion, and she listens to what I want. I get compliments on my hair, even from strangers.

A girlfriend of mine referred me to Stacy, I called and wanted to get in that week but she didn't have an appointment available. So I decided to try another salon a different friend suggested and I regret it!!! Long story short I was not pleased so I called Platform and booked with Stacy she didn't have an opening for several weeks but let me tell you it was worth the wait!! She fixed the nightmare I came in with and had a bunch of suggestions on what would look good. I felt completely confident in her ability to make me over! I have a sassy new cut and absolutely gorgeous color!

I can't say enough good things about this salon. I have tried almost every nice salon in Portland and was never super impressed or happy with the results. I got a color and cut from Jodi and was thrilled with the results. She did an excellent job listening to me and had many suggestions, and she took plenty of time with me. She was very sweet and funny, which made it a much more pleasant time. I found the whole place to be very unpretentious and felt very comfortable. I highly recommend Jodi.

I found Platform Artistic Salon through citysearch, I called for an appointment and they were able to squeeze me in that same day due to a cancellation. Rachel colored my hair and it looks the best it ever has. She listened to me and I got EXACTLY what I wanted. I love it!!

After my wife had been going to see Jasmine for some time, I finally went and have been very happy with Jasmine's work ever since. I hate switching stylists, but I'm very glad I did. I get a perfect haircut everytime I go, appointments are kept everytime and I am seen on time each time, and Jasmine automatically books future appointments for me so I can keep the same time slot that is hard to get if I wait to make an appointment. She is in high demand because the quality of her work is excellent - so book early!

Stacy is the best!!! I have lived in Portland and the surrounding areas most of my life. As a result I have been to almost every upscale salon in town. My first impression of Platform was a little rocky because parking was awful. But when I walked in a smiling face greeted me and the decor in the space is beautiful. Everyone working in the salon seemed genuinely happy to be there. I truly believe any salon can have the ?look good? factor going for them. I think beauty is only skin deep. A good salon is only as good as the professionals that work in the space. My appointment was with Stacy, she took the time to consult with me she asked me questions about my daily life and what has worked and not worked in the past. She was full of ideas and it made me think of things I haven?t thought of before. She isn?t the kind of hairstylist that is timid. She really tells it like it is and I appreciated that about her. I left with the best color I have ever had and a very easy and cute new cut. I am not the type of person that schedules in advance but I suggest you call a few weeks ahead with Stacy because she is a little hard to get into.

She was full of ideas and it made me think of things I haven?t thought of before. She isn?t the kind of hairstylist that is timid. She really tells it like it is and I appreciated that about her. I left with the best color I have ever had and a very easy and cute new cut. I am not the type of person that schedules in advance but I suggest you call a few weeks ahead with Stacy because she is a little hard to get into.

Pros: Stacy

Cons: parking

Paige Rene is not only ""The Best Hair Designer"" but the classiest lady and most professional of her kind.\r\nI would recommend her talents to the world. She's delightful to talk to and treats you with personal professional courtesy.

Platform Artistic Salon is the best salon I've been to in Portland. Not only is the look of the salon energizing, it's professional without the snobby feel. Pauline is the best hair colorest I've ever seen!! She stays current with the lastest styles and with her artistic eye, she always knows what cut and color will look the best on me. Not to mention she makes me laugh the entire time! I love the products they carry (pureology rocks!)and if I'm not sure of what I need Pauline will save the day and help me figure it out. I can't help but feel like a movie star when I leave. :) This is truley a great spot, everyone there is friendly and I know I will be taken care of while I'm there.

Stacy is the best at what she does. I have been a client for years, and have never seen her shine so well at Platform Artistic. Stacy always goes the extra mile to make sure she gives you the Hair you want. Stacy does not only my hair but my families too. Going to Stacy makes you feel beautiful again!

April has been cutting my hair for 6 years. I followed her to Artistic Platform from her last salon. She is wonderful! I have had so many compliments on my hair. I have people tell me all the time that I have beautiful hair and it's all thanks to April! April is great! I won't let anyone else cut or color my hair! Artisitic Platform is a very trendy, clean and relaxed salon. I highly recommend April Becker and Artistic Platform Salon!

I have had so many so-so cut and colors over the years. There have only been a small few that say WOW. So many times the hairdresser just doesn't get it. Not so with Stacy. I started to have Stacy do my cut and color just a few months ago. I was so lucky to get Stacy. She listens to what I want and recommneds the best color. She knows what looks good and consults in a very easy manner and tone. All my friends have noticed. I highly recommend Stacy to anyone! \r\n\r\n

I have been in Portland for 5 years and have been through my fair share of stylists and barbers. My biggest complaint (besides a bad cut) is that most stylists don't listen. \r\nChi on the other hand was excellent. She came highly recommended from a softball buddy of mine who has gone to Chi for years. His cut was alway tight and clean so I set up an appointment. \r\nNot only was she fun to pass the time with she gave me a super cut and shampoo. I left feeling liek a million bucks and my wife loved the cut. On top of that is has grown in great, something I haven't had since I lived in the Bay Area. Chi was super and listened to me when I said ""short but with style"". I gave her otherwise full artistic freedom and it was well worth it.\r\nThis isn't a $25 buzz cut given by some ham-fisted ex-stripper - so expect to pay more for excellent quality. Chi and from what else I saw coming out of Platform was well worth it. \r\n

Cons: parking, but it's downtown so to be expected

Ja'nien Sisk has been my stylist for over 10 years. I've followed her from her former salons to Platform, and I wouldn't trust my hair to any other stylist in Portland. Ja'nien cuts hair in such a way that it almost fixes itself. People always ask me where I get my hair done, even when all I've done with it is wash it. I often joke that I could go on Survivor and the last thing I'd worry about is my hair. Hair products, irons, blowdryers, and fancy brushes won't make your hair look good if you don't have the right cut. Ja'nien has an incredible way of knowing what the right cut is for your face.

I went in search of a salon to tackle my very high maintenance hair and thankfully found Platform. After meeting the owner, Pauline, I was excited to have my appointment with Paige Rene. Paige not only listened to my suggestions but offered innovative solutions. She was patient, precise and a fabulous conversationalist. Paige enthusiastically transformed my hair from blah to wow. I've never been so impressed by one stylist's expertise like this before and highly recommend Paige to anyone who needs a refreshing haircut.

I was a party crasher at their grand opening event on a first Thursday last year, (thanks for the free booze) . Anyways while there that evening I thought this group looked like too much fun so I booked an appt. I'm was pleasantly surprised to hook up with Pauline, she always has good suggestions for updating my look, and I alway leave there feeling Hot and Sassy!! Oh and her chair side manner rocks, the girl is just down right funny... and who doesn't enjoy a quick wit, more for my money. Overall a positive and professional salon experience. The staff is always helpful, great customer service.

I was traveling out of town not long ago and got a haircut. Needless to say, it wasn't good. I heard from a friend about platform and gave them a call. They were able to squeeze me in on very short notice due to a cancelation and took care of my problem. Everyone there was really friendly and very helpful, especially the receptionist that went the extra mile to get me in. Tons of thanks, and i'll be back soon. Don't miss this cool Pearl area salon.
