I have been going to Bishops on and off for what feels like forever. I have to say in the past there had been some disappointment, but lately- I have gotten some of the best haircuts I've had in my life! It really feels like Bishops has stepped it up as far as training or who they are hiring. I have been just LOVING my hair! A+++ Bishops! Great value.

Pros: great stylists, atmosphere, value

Cons: zilch

This place cloaks its mediocre services in loud music and cheap beer. Hoorray for pdx's unoriginal barbershop. Every time I get the bad idea to get my haircut here and stray from my usual place i get instead of a satisfying experience disgruntled employees, an average cut, and a free buzz from a few beers. Then comes the onset of buyers remorse when i realize the free beer isn't worth the bad cut. Thank god for the gimmicks-they'll get you every time. From a customers stand point it seems like they have a high turnover. I go in at least once or twice a year to give it a shot and always see new people working. Must explain why they need the gimmicks....?

Really cool joint. I stumbled upon this place looking for jackpot records - (p.s. they moved) - and walked in and signed my name and got a beer and a sweet haircut. It was pretty cheap too.

I love this Bishops. Emily is one of the best hairdressers around. Veronica is not to sabby either. Both have done my color and both have totally ROCKED IT! I used to pay way more for much less. Never again! THANKS FOR ROCKIN!

I drive in from Vancouver to get my hair done at Bishops in NW. I love those girls. They are fun and funny. The music is good, although the wait might be a little long. My hair cut might not be complicated but I dont go there just for the cuts. I have gone to those so called high class salons. I have never been more satisified just paying the 25 bucks and having a real conversations with REAL people.
I highly recommend Bishops to you and to all my friends.

I heard there is free beer, good music, a hip staff, and little wait times. I can say all is true except for the wait times. I went to the Hawthorne bishops on a Saturday and there was a hour and half wait. The wait was worth it and after my beer I didnt mind all that much. If you are sick of bad hair cuts or paying 50 bucks for so called good cuts , then go to Bishops its worth the wait!!!! next time I go it will be during the week. I hear the wait times are far less. Thanks Katie you know how to cut them hairs.... :) That guy at the front desk is pretty funny too. I have never felt more welcome .

I always go to Ken's for pizza and pass by Bishops. I decided with my wife to go there just for kicks. What a great place. Its not the kinda place I would normally hang out but the girls and the energy in there was really fun. I appreciated the low cost hair cut. Veronica, who cut my hair, was really professional and sweet. She caught me a bit off guard with her bright orange hair, but she was so nice that in a moment I didnt even notice she looked a bit outrageous. She really explained the whole process and how Bishops is an ala carte business. I was having so much fun that I had her give me a shampoo and a shave too.
I will be going back to Bishops. If you get the chance, see Veronica. She is great. What ever Mr. Bishop is doing he is doing it right.

I live in the neighborhood and go to my neighborhood Bishops and have been for about 3 years. Everytime I go in I am greeted with a smile and a beer. The hair cuts are good. I have seen Beth, Asma, Tiffany and Danny. They have all been great. If you are looking for a good place to go for a cheap hair cut, I recommend Bishops. If you are looking for a salon go there. This place is more like hanging with friends...

I went to a salon to get my hair dyed platnum. Well I left with sunflower yellow hair. I went on a friends recommendation to bishops on 21st. After a good consutation with Tracy she understood exactly what I wanted. She and I talked the whole time. She explained what she was doing and put me at ease. I was really afraid that I was going to have my hair melted off (yes, its happened before). She did the BEST JOB!
She was sweet and very funny. The recieptionist made sure that I had everything I needed. She even asked me what shade of platum i wanted. She was so helpful I loved it. Tracy you have a new client! I will be recommending my friends to see you!
Thanks Bishops!

I have been visiting Bishops in NW for years now. I love the stylists they have working there. They always will to go the extra mile.

My last two visits were disastrous - sloppy and unfinished work, unpleasant barbers. It looks like this place hires friends or family and trains them for ten minutes before giving them scissors.

Your grandmother will probably give you a better haircut than these "hairdressers".

In the past I got a couple of decent haircuts here, so some of the employees must be competent, but they have certainly become hard to come by!

I will stop patronizing this Bishop's and try my luck elsewhere in the neighborhood. They certainly give Nob Hill a bad name. Oh Portland, when will you stop being so provincial!

My friend raved about Bishops and how great it is, and I do love her hair, so I decided to give it a try. It was the day before my 18th birthday. I wanted a cut and dye, but they refused to dye my hair without parental consent (even though I was going to be 18 in less than 24 hours)... So I was forced to get my mom to drop everything she was doing and come down to the salon and sign a waiver. I understand why they had to do this, but it started giving me bad vibes. I should have walked out and never looked back.

A few months before, I had dyed my hair with box dye; redish on top, black underneath. Well black dye is a pain to get out (that's why I went to bishops...to let the professionals handle it).

I asked the girls who were working if they could help me get to a really light color, and they because argumentative, forgetting the fact that it's MY HAIR and I should get something I want considering how much money I was going to pay.

After giving up on having light hair, they promised me they wou;d help get the black dye out... I was in that salon for a good 3 hours or so and I paid WAY too much for a cut I wasn't thrilled with and a color that did not do what they promised...They did NOTHING to take the black out, they just put in a different color that covered the black up for a month or two.

I got my hair cut and dyed again a couple of weeks ago, but this time I took a risk and went to Supercuts... I'm glad I did. Although the trim wasn't amazing, the color was MUCH better and the service was great.

So thanks for a whole lot of nothing Bishops. You should really learn to listen to what your client wants and give them what they want. After all, they're paying you more than you deserve!

Pros: I didn't have to see my nasty roots and the music was good

Cons: pretty much everything else

After many random hair cuts in portland at various shops I finally decided to try out bishops. I didn't want to have to wait for my hair to get done I needed a freshen up very much so. In the past I have had hairdressers chop off all my hair when I've told them I am growing it out. I have had hairdressers dye my hair the color I specifically asked them not to, so at this point I'm jaded and nervous.
When I walked in I was greeted by hairdressers and a very charming boy at the front desk. I didn't have to wait very long, and they quoted me correctly on how long of a wait. Tracy did my hair and helped me pick out the perfect shade of color for my hair and skin tone. It was a very relaxing experiencing and though I may have not looked like the richest biggest tipper I was treated like I was. The boy working the desk made sure I was comfortable and offered me things to drink, and not just beer. He put my purse in a safe place so that no one would walk off with it after I left it out in the open.
Tracy always checked to make sure I was doing okay throughout the process, and offered stimulating conversation rather than discussing drama amongst other hairdressers as I often experience in other salons.
When finished I loved my hair. It was perfect, exactly what I wanted, and even better than I hoped for.
I get many compliments on it daily and always recommend bishops on NW 21st. I don't know about the rest, but this bishops seems to be doing something right. When I looked around at the salon all the hairdressers seemed to be very attentive and the clientele very happy.

The way they treat their employees is reason enough not to go there.

They only recieved one lonely star because it was required by City Search...

I have had many great experiences here and one not. My bad experience was when i was having my hair dyed by the assistant manager, it seemed like she had no experience and she didn't leave the dye in long enough so you could still see my roots. My favorite two stylists that work there are Osma and Beth.

My experience with Bishop's and anyone I've ever talked to that has been there hasn't been satisfactory. Some of their people are experienced but it seems like too many of them aren't. It's hit-or-miss. You may get a good hair cut one time, but then not the next and the stylist's schedules seem too different to keep up with them. You can't count on getting a good hair cut every time so I just don't go there anymore.

I went to this salon, and the girl that cut my hair seemed not to have enough experience and I saw the stylist next to me and she didnt look with much experience either I didnt truely loved my hair cut and my husband either plus there were some parts of my hair cut that were a somewhat chopped instead of looking like a smothly cut. IT wasnt terrible, but It wasnt professional either. I need to go somewhere else to get it done profesionally. I would have probably get something better in a cheaper place or tell your mom to do it. I payed $25 dls.+ $5 for the blowdry which I didnt asked.Its not expensive, but I was expecting to get something better. I wouldnt recomend this place, I dont know if someone at the salon would be an expert or if they have a standard on hireing their stylists, or if this place is more for men hair cut, but I didnt get a very nice cut. Also I didnt like all the pornografic photos posted all over the salon.

Living downtown I decided to give my local Bishops a try. I went into the location in SW. The wait was a little long (I went in around 3pm on a monday) but it was well worth it. I saw Kylie I believe her name was. She listened to what I wanted and was very easy to talk to. She's funny too, so that put me at ease. Everyone at the shop was friendly, and I'm really happy with my haircut. I will be going back!

If you have had bad experinces in the past at your local Bishiops, I highly recomend the Bishops on NW 21st. I don't know what you guys are doing their but i think hands down have the best stylist in town. I had a off the hook time in their. The vibe is high, and not to mention the phat haircut I got. Keep it rockin, fo shizzle mo nizzel, if you don't want attitude, and a layed back vibe...this is your spot. Keep it commin guys,I like the change.

I had the good fortune to discover this place several cuts ago after a disastrous six months hair-hopping around town looking for a place where I felt comfortable with both my cut and the experience. I've been to places where I am surprised they don't offer to-go hats. I am always astonished at the continual miracle resting on my head after one of these stylists goes to work like Edward Clipperhands. The wait's rarely much (particularly for a place that doesn't accept appointments) and you get to sit down, have a beer, flip through a magazine and people watch while you do. The receptionist is always flying around the place, letting you know what's going on, making sure you're having a good time. And she always takes a minute to play with my kid. That makes my day. Perfect.

After dissatisfaction at the SW Columbia location, I went to Bishops on NW 21st on a busy Saturday afternoon. Waiting customers overflowed onto the hot sunny sidewalk and there was an "hour plus wait list." I was told if I leave and come back I?d have to call back in a half hour or be crossed off the list. Too hot outside, I took a seat at the unused sinks. After a few minutes I noticed that, since I'd come in, all but one barber chair was empty and there were no stylists at any chair! A stylist did walk by an empty seat, put her cigs in her purse, checked her own makeup and hair, and disappeared. "How many stylists are on today?" I asked the receptionist. "Six or seven," she said. ?Six or seven?? I said. She saw me look at all the empty chairs and said, "Well we do a lot of color." Confused, I asked if that meant they're all somewhere else. "Well, someone could be on break, someone might be in the bathroom..." She trailed off. I said to take my name off the list. On my way another employee who overheard this asked my name. I replied and he chirpily said, "Bye, Mike!"

Pros: atmosphere when they're paying attention is good, usually offer you a free beer

Cons: no sense of urgency and to much color for ladies means guys wait longer for a stylist

I got the best hair cut from Elli she helped me change my look but kept it functionable, I was totally impressed sevice was great and the hair cut was hot! Everyone in portland needs to come here.

I don't know what half the reviews on here are saying, but I got one of the best haircuts of my life over at the SW bishops. They not only listened to what I was saying, but they did more than I even asked for! I've never gotten better service. Since getting my haircut at bishops I've only gotten the best compliments on my hair.

If your haircut gets jacked, it's only from your poor explaination on how you want your hair done. Nuff said.

I LOVE BISHOPS!

I got the WORST HAIR CUT OF MY LIFE HERE!!!! and really their pricing isn't that great. I'd rather pay the 10 extra dollars to have someone who actually knows what they are going to my hair then have some snobby 20 year old brat work on my hair . My friend suggested for me to go to Bishops for the price. and I talked to the asst. manager and asked him if he could get my hair really blonde without frying it. he said yes. AND WELL HE LIED. my hair started to fall out because of his incompentence. YEAH THANKS. instead of being intrested in making money and tips maybe you should ummm LISTEN to your customers and concerns and actually try and do A GOOD JOB. so basically DON'T GO HERE. goto Flux Salon. thats good service with well trained professional staff. they know what they're doing!

I got the WORST HAIR CUT OF MY LIFE HERE!!!! and really their pricing isn't that great. I'd rather pay the 10 extra dollars to have someone who actually knows what they are going to my hair then have some snobby 20 year old brat work on my hair .

Pros: they give you beer so you can get wasted as the butcher your hair

Cons: bad customer sevice, bad hairstylists, pretty much everything

I went into bishops wanting a simple cut, just layering of the hair with a little length taken off. I was cut by the manager who gave me a mullet like hairdo. She wet my hair down by spraying me lightly 3 times with a squirt bottle this wet one side of my hair while the other side was dry then she started chopping away. By the end of this horrific expierience I had short hair on top and a bunch of long uneven pieces on the bottom. I have to wear my hair up all the time now and some of it wont even fit in a ponytail. This butchering cost 24$ and she did'nt even brush hair off my face and arms so I walked out of Bishops with a horrible haircut, hair all over my face and was out 24 bucks. I would suggest supercuts over bishops at least they might brush hair off your face when theyre done messing up your hair. I was under the impression that the hairstylists are hired on if they have that punkrock barbie look and not for their competence in hairstyling. Seriously if you care about getting a quality haircut DO NOT GO TO BISHOPS. I would trust a random stranger more than them.

Pros: at least your offered a beer to prepare for the horrible haircut that is to come.

Cons: Everything, mostly the haircuts

I got my hair cut at the downtown Bishop's and it was the worst haircut of my life. The person who cut my hair, Lilly, was presumptuous, aggressive, and oblivious. She didn't listen to what I said or wanted. She cut my hair how she wanted to cut it. It looked horrible on me, but she thought it was great. It took me four months to grow-out her bad cut. AND she gave me the hard-sell to buy hair products there that I didn't want or need.

The haircuts are cheap at Bishop's, but the damage is deadly. Go elsewhere for a decent haircut.

I have been to Bishops twice, and wasn't pleased either time. I am not terribly picky about my hair, I usually ask for a typical men's haircut (and am under the impression I voice my intentions clearly) but I ended up with an uneven, poorly faded cut each time.

My experience rings true with some of the other reviews- it's basically just a dressed up Super Cuts, and you can expect to receive service similar to a run of the mill place you'd find at a shopping mall. I was, for the record, pleased with the attitude of the sylists themselves, they were very nice. They do, however, work on an hourly basis, so they don't have much incentive to go out of their way to give you a quality haircut. Don't get sucked in by the provocative advertising, the beer, or the hip feel of the salons. You'll be much better off at Flux or Dirty Little Secret.

I got the worst haircut of my life at this place. It was like the girl who was working on me was "playing" at being a hair stylist. The best part? Head lice. True story.

I really wanted to get on thier bandwagon and I've given them way to many chances to win my affection, but sheesh, you have to finally give up the ghost and take your dignity back after so much! You can only get so far with the promise of a PBR can shrouded in personally chosen rock posters. The idea of going in whenever and getting on the waiting list was always appealing to me. I don't like to make appointments. But then waiting and waiting, and then being treated like a peice of hair-meat by the 23 -year-old inexperienced butcher with the hip tattoos and "My parents sent me to beautyschool because that was all I could choose at the moment but I don't care about it or you, and my band has a great gig opening up for *$%^&" mentality, ultimately tired my want. My suggestion is go to Supercuts and cut the baloney if you want the same monetary value or pay through the nose and get pampered. Dirty Little Secret is an actually hip Salon and they treat you nice.

Let me get this off my chest: "male pattern baldness." Not always the most workable pattern either, but Mark at Bishops asked my preferences and then went to town. I left 15 minutes (and a couple of sips of PBR) later with one of my best cuts ever. They get you in and out, but do so without rushing customers or forsaking service. I'll shout it from the mountaintop: NICE JOB, BISHOPS.

I have gone to bishops several times now and each time I tell myself I'm not going back. But for some reason I keep giving them another chance. Well, not anymore. I can deal with a slightly crappy hair cut, but what I got last time I went to Bishops was a complete joke. Even the girl who cut my hair seemed embarrassed afterwards. The other strange part was that she didn't even offer to dry my hair when she was done butchering it. I walked out with soaking wet hair. Normally I would have said something but I didn't because I just wanted out so bad so I could get home and try to fix my hair! Anyway, I went to a different place the next day and got it fixed. I also called Bishops to ask for my money back and got the run-around. The manager was supposed to call me back and send me something in the mail but never did. They acted like how dare I complain. If you want your hair to look like you cut it yourself, in the dark, without a mirror, then go to Bishops. But if you want a professional hair cut, then don't. It's not even that cheap anyway.

Toni totally saved my head! I decided to give myself a cut and came in and she got right to work on fixing what had looked like a weed wacker would have done a better job. I walked in at seven o'clock at night and the receptionist was super friendly and grabbed me a beer. Yes, they serve beer! This is going to be my new salon, for sure! Cool atmosphere, great staff, good music, and i'm going back to get my hair dyed in a couple days! I completely hooked!

I went here after for a bit of razoring to lighten my bangs. I had just gotten my hair cut the week before and just needed to lighten the weight of my bangs. This usually take one minute to do. I told the stylist that I wanted nothing changed. She went through this whole wet down and focused more on the left side of my head for some reason. I left with my hair still wet and did not notice till I got home that she took an inch and a half length off one side of my head!!!!! What was she thinking! I am never going back. Not to mention that I payed $10 for that lopsided disaster! I should have known when she said she just started 6mths ago.

My husband loves going to Bishops and having a nice cool Pabst (on the house) while he gets his hair cut. I have had my hair cut a couple of times and had great results as well. The stylists are cool and the prices are great. The only problem is that if you go during peak hours, you do have to wait.

Long ago, the Vikings sailed the Earth battling dinosaurs and smoting even the most "hip" of Quick Cuts in search of the perfect doo. As Viking culture faded, they erected the first Bishops to commemorate the travels of these original pioneers.

Today, the spirit of the original Bishops carries on so we can spend less time kicking dino-butt and more time drinking beer at band practice.

Thanks, Vikings!

PROS: Beer, bobs and beautiful people

an entirely new concept~~this isn't your mama's beauty parlor!! come in & put your name on the list (you can still request your stylist), sit & relax with an ice cold Miller Beer while you wait! Hip & Funky to the extreme supreme, from the decor to the stylists themselves! Don't let that scare you, oh classically-coiffed cuties... you can still get a tame cut, even if your stylist wouldn't ever sport it!

PROS: Originality Deluxe! Great stylists with great skillz!
CONS: nothing!

the air is a little intimidatingly hipster, but bishops knows what they are doing. the staff is really friendly and they did a wonderful job on cutting exactly what i wanted and working out the style with me.

what's the big deal about this place? i gave bishops a fair shot: 3 tries, all failures... staff was okay, but they gave me possibly the worst haircuts of my life -- uneven, attempting to be cool and trendy but just bad... so much so that my next stylist (at another place) kept (politely) gawking at the butch job called my hair. save your money and go somewhere else!

Bishop's is a great alternative if you are tired of paying downtown prices for a great cut. I went to experience the Rock'N'Roll barbershop for the first time. I was impressed. I didn't book an appointment so I had to put my name on the waiting list. I didn't wait long, for a busy Friday night. They serve Pabst Blue Ribbon while you wait and during your services. How great it that? They play good music and the price was reasonable. The gal that cut my hair hadn't been there very long, but she was hospitable. I got a lot of compliments on my haircut, even two weeks after the fact. I am recommending to you and all my friends. It is a fun experience.
