I came in a week before my wedding with Cheetah spots (from a previous "stylist"), and with the help of the stylists at Dolce, made it to my wedding as beautiful as I could have ever hoped!
Have been going here ever since and would never think of going anywhere else! I absolutly love the AMAZING stylists.

I went in for a consultation for the Japanese Hair Straightening with LeResh, who quoted me $500 for my hair after looking at it. At the time I had it done she was the only person on the West Coast that performed the procedure, and her credentials were great. I did a bunch of research then finally made the appointment for it. Well, after 6 hours of sitting with LeResh who was extremely unpleasant and snobby, I was finished and she told me that if I didn't buy the products she recommended, the process would be undone. So I spent $100 on shampoo and conditioner, then she charged me $680 even though she had quoted me $500. Then of course I left a tip, and left. Even though I didn't get my hair wet or anything like that for 72 hours afterward, my hair was not straight and one side was straighter than the other. I kept having to flat iron my hair every single day after this, $900 later. I was SO disappointed. Dolce has a great reputation, but LeResh's poor customer service and failure to successfully straighten my hair could certain sour their reputation quickly.

Oh and by the way, I went elsewhere to have it done for $230, and the woman was AMAZING, hilarious, wonderful personality, and I haven't had to touch a flat iron since and it's been a year. Oh, and when I asked what products to buy, the woman said I wouldn't need any because the purpose of the Japanese Hair Straightening/Thermal Reconditioning Process is so you don't have to use products and still have perfectly straight, sleek hair that is free of frizzies. I recommend seeing JulieAnn, at Complete Designs on 47th and Sandy. The phone number is (503)282-0954.

Don't waste your time or fool yourself going to Dolce to see LeResh for the Japanese Hair Straightening, she'll take advantage of you like she did me.

I am originally from the Midwest and I have had a heck of a time finding a stylist of equal calliber to my stylist back home. After two years of searching I have finally found Evona. I feel that personality is equally as important as skill when it comes to a hair stylist. Evona did a great job on my hair and I had a blast while she was doing it.

I really think those reviews were done by the people who work there or by their friends and family. I won't mention her name but she did a terrible job on my hair. I want my hair back! She cut my hair and now I have a terrible layers. My bang is too short and un-even. It looks like someone amature cut her own hair. My hair is not symetric either; my right side is shorter than the other side. The layer looks un-natural. On top of that, she was going for a completely different look from what I told her. (perhaps her poor English skill made it even worse.) She spent a lot of time on me but I'm sorry, I won't come back. This is the worst hair cut I ever had!

Big city feel, little city charm. Eric gave me the best cut and colour since moving here from London. He spent considerable time making suggestions and options. He is also owner of a haircare line and travels for fashion shows and hair. Alder, his co-worker, seemed very worth a try as well. This is the real deal! Thank you Eric, we will be back!!!!!! Dont move back to Hollywood!

I was introduced to Dolce' by a friend. I travel from Vegas and was very afraid as the NW is not known for fashion. These people are the real deal. I came in as they were talking about a photo shoot and suprised as to how"in" they are. I went to see Eric and was very pleased! The stylist next to him(I forget his name) was an educator for Bumble Bee in NY. They showed me pictures from a shoot they did and made suggestions. Thanks....

Well, I thought I had finally found a salon and a stylist. Evona did a great job on my hair. She even took the time to evaluate what style would look best on me. But that is where it stopped. I have been trying for a week to get another appointment with her. I have tried using their web site appointment setter, but no one has written back. I have called (you don't speak to a receptionist, its all menu driven) 3 times and left a message for Evona to call me back. I have even gone in, and actually had to ask someone to help me. They gave me the phone and said to leave her a message. This kind of treatment I don't need. I'll go look for another salon!

Eric listened..We sat down for a 25 minute consultation. He gave his input...after listening! He suggested I go home and think about the ideas before cutting. I have never had color and he gave 4 new ideas that work with my skin tone! I knew his background so we went for it!!! He was so into my look, he saved my marriage and I( now have a new job!Thank you Eric I feel great!!!

I cannot praise Evona at Dolce enough. She's been wonderful, and the changes I've made (color, cut and style) have all been gradual enough so I don't get upset or stressed that it was "too much." Since seeing Evona, I've had my hair completely restyled, lost about 5 inches in length, and gone from a brunette to a redhead. Her styling skill is surpassed only by her ability to color hair - she's made me wish I'd been brave enough to do all this sooner. I see her every few months for touch-ups and she's amazing at meeting my schedule, even late night appointments. Thanks Evona! You're the best.

I moved from Australia 4years ago and have been to hair hell and back in Portland! I found Eric and will never look else where. He spent 15 minutes with me getting a feel for my hair needs!He brought pictures and trends and was never pushy.I am very happy! The salon can get crowed,but it is a very hip scene.

What a wonderful experience!! A friend recommended Evona and we traveled all the way from Tillamook to see her. My friend and I were looking for a new style and Evona was right on for both of us!! She took her time and helped discover the beauty that was lying beneath our old hair styles. Their prices are very reasonable! We'll definitely be going back to Evona and Dolce'... We finally have a WOW hairdo that we just LOVE!

Having recently moved to Portland, I was worried about finding a salon and stylist that I could trust without paying unreasonable prices. So I waited until I got a referral before trying anyone, and I am so glad to have discovered Dolce and Eric Nelson! The salon has a high-end but still comfortable and cozy atmosphere, the stylist suggestions were right in line with my comfort level on color and cut, and the final result was a look that I love and a sense of trust that I found a talented stylist I would come back to in a heartbeat! Prices are also reasonable, especially if you're used to larger-city salon prices.

Gabriela has been cutting and coloring my hair for nearly three years, with exceptional results. Every cut she's given me has been, not only flattering, but easy to style and maintain. Gabriela is the first stylist who actually listens to what I want and then delivers. The salon is professional, yet relaxed and never pretentious. I don't want anybody but Gabriela to ever touch my hair!

I went to see Eric Alan Nelson at Dolce' a very chic salon in trendy Nob Hill district. He made my month. I recieved the best service,people watched and was pampered like a queen! Eric has worked on many celeberty clients as he is from Hollywood,yet he charges an Oregon price for his work! All the stylists were very unique. I highly recommend Dolce'.

I've had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dolce! Lisa does amazing work, both cutting and coloring. She's the first sylist I've been to that knew exactly what I meant when I said "here's my personality type, but I totally trust whatever you think will look good". Lisa gave me a cut that looked good on me and that I could work with - not whatever the trendy "do" of the month was. I trust Lisa so much, I sent my Mom to her ... can't beat that!

And the salon is a kick, totally unpretentious and easygoing!

It was a great experience. Finally I have met a stylist who could correct the chop I received at another salon. The coloring was exactly what I was looking for. The salon could get a little cozy if there was a full house but what a small price for a great hairstyle!

After years of "bad hair" and frustration over the color, cut, and inconsitency of the hairdresser, I'm delighted to have found Evona!!! She's responsive, but also initiates ideas. I highly recommend her. The same is true of Gabrielle...my son can't chose, so he takes turns between the two. We love the entire experience at Dolce and recommend this dynamic duo to all!

and I feel that every penny is well spent with the talented team at Dolce. Evona is extremely talented and I feel fortunate to have finally found a hairstylist in Portland that actually listens, offers suggestions and has a plan. After relocating to Portland last year, it took me two hairstylists before finding this salon and now that I'm there I'll never go anywhere else. If you are looking for the simple plan then go to SuperCuts, if you want talent, someone that knows the latest trends in color and cut, you must go to Dolce. I'm glad I did!
