I love Kate B. at RH, I decided to ombre my hair (the first time i have ever dyed my hair) and she did an amazing job and made me feel really comfortable. So much so, that i have gone back to her ever since to cut my hair. I am convinced

Had an appointment with Melissa M and I have to say she did a great job on my hair color. She took her time listening to what I wanted and was able to translate that into a great hair color and style that looks fantastic. Richard Herrera

I have been to Hickox, Edward Wadsworth, Magnum Opus and Evolution over the years. It seemed as though a stylist might do a great job on the color, but style not so great. Or, he might do a great cut, but the color was just not right. I

This is an awesome salon. Go here for the best color/cut you'll find in Portland - and ask for Deborah. She's worked miracles on my hair. I feel like there's nothing she can't do (I have thick curly hair that's been three different colors

I went To Richard Herrera to have my hair and make-up done for my wedding a few months ago, and boy was that a mistake. I came on time, thanked the stylists for helping me on my big day, and gave them a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like. It wasn't a hard style, so I hoped it would turn out alright. By the end, my hair looked flat, VERY messy, greasy, and definitely not like the picture that I gave to the hairdresser. I'm normally not the type to ask someone to do something multiple times, but I had to ask the hairstylist twice if she could do something else to make my hair look better. Both times, she reacted rudely and unprofessionally. In that department, I could've done my own hair for a cheaper price and a less hostile environment. And my hair never did turn out right, regardless of my constant pleas for a redo.

When I got to have my make-up done, it wasn't as bad. They did a good job. But, long story short, when a situation came up where I was emotionally distraught, the employee didn't say anything to me. She just coldly ran through her make-up routine with me and sent me to the cash register. I wasn't a bad customer, I had tried being friendly to the people who were helping me look good for my wedding day. But by the time I left, I felt like I'd been judged and denied by the popular girls cliche in high school. Coming here was the worst part of my wedding. And I definitely didn't feel welcome enough to come back.

One more comment as a side-note: although it was my wedding day and I went there specifically to get ready for it, I received no "congratulations" while I was there. Nothing. This detail doesn't bother me as much as the rest, but it still made me feel... neglected in a way. When I came out dressed in my wedding dress, they didn't say anything about how I looked or even a "good luck". All they said was "have a nice day" after my dad paid the $150 bill. I'm not angry at the people that worked with me or anything. I'm just sad that I didn't get to have that "princess" feeling as I got my hair and make-up done, like everyone said that I would. Like I said before, going here was definitely the most depressing part of my wedding day. I wouldn't encourage anyone to go here if they're looking for that same feeling.

I arrived early. As I was walking in, I noticed some beautiful flowers and a gentleman looking at them. We struck up a conversation. It turns out, he was Richard Herrara. He was absolutely charming.

I was having hair and make-up done for a photo. The best compliment I was paid all day was when my son's 12-year-old friend said "you look different today - in a good way!" Thanks Michele (I'm not sure about the spelling)!

A lovely salon - highly recommended.

I tried a salon closer to my home for a quick trim and quickly remembered why I love ALL my hair services at RH. Not only would I not trust my color to anyone else, but the staff at RH is so professional...and if you've been disappointed by one of those salons that has chatty, bad-mouthed staff that never improved their social skills past middle school, you'll appreciate the upscale, confident treatment you'll receive at Richard Herrera About Hair.

Cons: A little pricy

They are great for a busy schedule. I always get in when I need to. I have gone to a few different girls and they all were friendly and listened to what I was looking for. They all got my hair JUST the right color. That is the reason I left other salons, they just couldn't get it right. From the second you walk in the door they grab your purse and are handed a robe. Makes you feel very pampered, but without the price of a spa!

It is easy to find off the freeway so you don't have to get lost downtown! I have sent a lot of my friends here and will continue to do so!!!

Oh and the best part is when they shampoo you! Talk about heaven. They take their time and even massage your neck!

I simply love my stylist Rose who did my hair. She was amazing, gave me the exact haircut I needed after asking me questions. Definitely go to her if you are looking for a cheerful, vibrant, and skilled stylist.

I went here a while back to have an updo done and received the worst service I have ever experienced at a salon. First, the stylist I had scheduled my updo with did not get her prior appointment done before I arrived. Apparently, the customer didn't like her updo so the stylist kept redoing it - cutting into my appointment time. Then, after an hour of waiting they finally said that the stylist I booked my appointment with didn't have time to do my hair so one of their apprentices was going to do my hair. She did an okay job but it came out halfway through the night. No one apologized for the poor service, not even the stylist I had booked my appointment with. They also charged me full price for the updo I had done by a stylist in training which was ridiculous. I will never go back to this salon again. Their service is terrible and they treat their customers like trash.

I have seen just about everyone of the stylists here, and I am happy to say I enjoyed every single experience I have ever had there. From the moment I walked in smiling faces greet me, the gals that work the front desk are always chipper and eager to please, offering me a beverage, striking up good conversation. I never wait too long for the stylist I am scheduled to see,They always seem excited about thier work, offering up new ideas and solutions to help my problem hair!, all my hair worries are pushed aside now, they are awesome! I love this salon I wont every stray! great service, great prices, great atmosphere. If you get a chance see Colleen she is a delight!

After moving to Portland, I looked for a long time to find a stylist and hair colorist working in a salon that is trendy but not pretentious and where I didn't have to drive around and around looking for decent parking. After five years, I finally found the best stylist since I have moved here. My daughter, husband, and I all cherish our visits to Richard Herrera and in particular with Raegan. The salon is clean, relaxing, easy to get to and park. The folks at Richard Herrera are professional, accomodating, friendly, and take a real interest in you; something I have not found with other salons of their calibur. I would recommend Raegan to anyone; she does great trendy cuts, color, and phenominal brows. One more thing, if you can get a shampoo from Rose, you will think you are in heaven!

Tiffany is great...love my cut, and I actually found someone who didn't turn my hair that ugly brassy orange. I have brown hair with carmel and blond highlight...2.5 months later it still looks the same!!! The atmosphere is good; the reception desk is very friendly and they keep great records. Only complaint is the price...very expensive. Worth it??? Still deciding...

I went to Richard Herrera twenty years ago and he was as attentive, attractive, charming and warm then as he is now. I only stopped going because getting downtown can be a chore. Recently I went back because I had to go to court and I didn't want to look dowdy. Richard recommended dark hair (which really surprised me because I am 55) and he gave me a whole new stylish look.
I came back 6 weeks later..they keep nice records and I knew I'd get the same look again. Instead somehow my hair looks mahogany colored instead of dark chocolate and I didn't notice it until I got home. I really despise red hair on me so my plan is to call back and see what they will do to change it. The colorist was distracted, it was a Saturday and I was there for 2 hours. Somehow I have the feeling they will make this right. And even with this copper color I look 10 times better than when I went in.

I saw Erika and got a fun, stylish cut. She spent nearly three hours on my hair, and while it wasn't cheap, it was worth it. I've gotten several compliments, which is always a boost. I think this is a great place for young professionals. You can expect to leave looking polished.

I was a frequenter of this salon for almost a year but have changed my tune. I have been passed around from stylist several times, found it hard to make appointments, and in general found the attention to customer service to be lacking. I will say that when I could get in with my stylist, Debra, she did an amazing job. But the overall treatment I recieved left me in search of a better salon. Don;t believe the hype--this place isn't worth the $200.

I was very disapointed, b/c I used to work for a spa and heard great things about Richard himself, so I had high expectations going in. I had the last apt of the evening, book randomnly. I wanted a fun, sexy haircut, but my hairdresser didn't seem to care about what I wanted, gave me a trim in 10 minutes and acted irritated, cutting my hair agressively, not looking at me, when I mentioned that I'd like it shorter (I tried to tell her that I actually wanted something more stylish, but she didn't seem open to talking about it. It seemed that she had decided that her Friday night was about to start and I was about infringe on it) All this for $50! I even tipped her b/c I was just in shock. She did make my hair very soft, which I appreciated. I was very disapointed.

I have been here three times so far and I inted to go back before the end of September. I have had my hair cut, dyed, styled, treated, and a unique updo AND makeup for prom. My friend got me hooked after one visit. They offer free drinks of tea, coffee, or soda. They have changing rooms to change out of a top and into a little cape to protect you from any spills. Everyone is nice and very skilled.

Pros: Highly Skilled, Owner on hand, Always great results

Cons: Sometime hard to find, Parking, Expensive

I had the best haircut ever here, on a day when the owner had a free afternoon and no distractions. Otherwise, he left me waiting with a wet head while he answered phone calls and tended to other stylists, clients, and contractors. For the prices they charge here, clients deserve 100% attention.
