I have been going to see Greg for years. He consistently colors my hair in such a natural looking manner that friends and colleagues are surprised when I tell them I have my hair .
Went to a different colorist once to try someone closer

I went to G Best salon per the recommendation of a friend. I saw Greg for my hair color-- a full blonde weave. First of all, Greg told me the hair color I wanted was not suitable for my skin tone and therefore he absolutely would NOT do it, unless I agreed to "trust him" that a more caramel-y hue is what suits me. I was hesitant, because I went in for a pretty blonde-- something lighter for the summer. Ultimately I ended up trusting that, since he's been a pro for many years, he might know a thing or two more than myself... so I let him do what he wanted.

HUGE MISTAKE!

Not only did Greg do a half ass job of coloring my hair- he was so rushed that he missed some spots! Post- appointment, my roots were still showing and I had a brassy orange-hued dye job. It looked absolutely awful- so awful, in fact, I cried as I exited the salon. Let me just add a few nuggets of joy included in this experience...
When Greg was applying the color, he was so busy flirting with his assistant (who cut my hair post-color) that he managed to drip BLEACH on my face in 3 different places and he did not even notice. I had to tell him, and even then he brushed it off like it was no big deal. He did not listen to my desires at all. As if this is not bad enough, he put me under the dryer for 5 minutes..... and after about 3.5 min he had his assistant check my foils- and literally said "that's good enough" before pulling me out for a cut from his assistant.

I don't know how to stress how UNHAPPY I was with the results of this experience. I'm usually pretty easy to please.

Please take my advice and do not go here. You WILL be disappointed, and it's not worth the price.

If you have not ever been to this salon, you need to try it. It is worth every penny. Greg and everyone there treated me as if I was a very special client and went out of their way to make me feel at home. I learned so much about hair color from Greg, and I could not be happier with the results, which even includes a new hair cut my friends are raving about.
You truly need to try this place at least once, and when you do I assure you they will have a new customer.

Greg's ability to color hair is amazing. He has years of experience. He consistently colors my hair beautifully. Greg cares about his clients. His shop is very pleasant and his assistants are always very helpful.

I have been going to Margarita for years at the other salon she worked at previously, and she has now moved to G Best Salon. She always does an awesome job on my hair. We always have a great consultation about how I wanted it colored (more highlights, lowlights or lighten/darken the base color). She always has great ideas and makes sure to make me look my best. She is available after work which makes seeing her plauseable during the work week. She is funny and entergetic and makes the trip to the salon fun and fabulous.

Cons: None...she is awesome

My daughter had her hair done by Greg. We were all very disappointed with the results. The color was awful, her roots were still very obvious. Apparently Greg spends so much time flirting with his assistants that he neglects his clients. Now we have to get her hair fixed at another salon, for $170, this is a crime.

That was the sense I had about the owner, Greg. As someone else noted, he spent a lot of time flirting and chatting with his assistants and not a whole lot of time focused on me, the customer. Also took about a minute for him to acknowledge me after I first walked in. Not impressive. However, I he does seem to know color well, what would work well on you based on your skintone and such. My hair color looked very nice and natural when he was done. And the stylist who cut my hair did a good job. Their prices are a bit high for me, but comparable to a lot of other salons. But for the price, I would expect better customer service.

Greg would not give me the color I wanted-- he is completely arrogant and he does not spend much time on his clients. During my color process, Greg was so distracted flirting with his assistant (who cut my hair) that he managed to drip 3 spots of BLEACH on my face, and he didn't even notice!! Normally I don't mind spending $150+ on my cut and color because I leave the salon feeling refreshed and beautiful, but honestly I have never been so disappointed post-cut/color. Greg does not listen to what his clients want, and he rushes through the process so much so that the results show his lack of concern. Greg suggested to his assistant that I spend 5 minutes under the dryer w/ the aluminum in my hair, and after about 4 minutes he looked at my hair and literally said "that's close enough" and sent me on my way for a wash. The stylist that cut my hair did not listen to my desires, nor did she even use any product when styling my hair.

Overall, I've never been so disappointed in a cut and color. I don't recommend this salon to anyone.

Greg is an artiste' when it comes to hair color. He knows what will work, and what will not. Trust him! I'll never go anywhere else.

Greg did my color for the first time last week and I love it. I found him online through his awesome website, g-best-colorsalon.com which he said was just recently updated. There are tons of pictures to look at and was the reason I went to Greg instead of someone else.

Making my living as a model here in the NW and beyond requires that my hair always be at its best. I have very special needs to achieve my look and the people at G Best Color Salon went above and beyond to meet those needs. Leaving me feeling gorgeous, pampered, and very impressed, from now on its nothing but the "Best" for my hair!

THE LAST NAME OF THE OWNER OF THIS SHOP IS BEST..SO IT IS JUST NATURAL THAT HE WOULD CALL HIS SHOP G BEST ( G=GREG, THE OWNERS NAME) AND THE NAME COULD NOT FIT THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS HAIR SALON ANY BETTER.AS IT IS TRUELY "THE BEST" I WAS GOING THERE FOR 11 YEARS..NEVER MISSING AN APPOINTMENT. FOR 11 YEARS I HAD THE "BEST" HAIR COLOR, THE "BEST" HAIR CUT AND THE "BEST" SERVICE. BEST SALON SPECIALIZES IN COLORING..AND HE WORKS MAGIC W/COLOR..BLONDES ARE HIS SPECIALTY. HE TURNED ME INTO A BLONDE 11 YEARS AGO FROM A MOUSEY BROWN AND I HAVE NEVER TURNED BACK. HE MAKES NEW STYLEIST WORK FOR 6 WEEKS BESIDE HIM BEFORE HE ALLOWS THEM TO WORK BY THEMSELVES WITH THE CUSTOMERS HAIR. HIS CUTOMERS COME FIRST..NO MATTER WHAT! I HAVE SINCE RETIRED TO LAS VEGAS & I HAVE YET TO FIND A STYLEIST AS GOOD AS GREG OR A COLOR SPECIALIST AS GOOD AS GREG..EVEN IN LAS VEGAS!! HIS PRICES ARE A LITTLE ON THE HIGH SIDE BUT WORTH EVERY CENT..PLUS HE DOES NOT ALLOW TIPPING IN HIS SHOP EVERY CHANCE THAT I GET I FLY BACK TO PORTLAND JUST TO HAVE GREG WORK ON MY HAIR..HE IS THAT GOOD!!! WHETHER YOU ARE A MAN OR A WOMAN TREAT YOURSELF TO A TRIP TO G BEST SALON ON N.E.BROADWAY IN PORTLAND, OREGON. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!

PROS: EVERYTHING..CUT..COLOR..SERVICE..PARKING IS EASY!
CONS: NOT ONE THING IS NEGATIVE ABOUT THIS BEAUTY SALON
