This place is great to go to. They take walk in's as well appointments. They really try to give you the best look for you. They would never recommend anything that wouldn't look good on you.

I really enjoyed my stylist, I felt like she really listened to me about what I was wanting in a hair cut. I was very happy with my cut and I agree with other reviewers that the free trims for your bangs are a great perk. I understand other reviewers complaints about color and products being pushed somewhat heavily. I have purchased products several times now and am hoping that it will die down now that my arsenal is complete! Overall, I am very happy with the salon and will be a continued customer!

Pros: Stylists who listen, Bumble & Bumble Products

Cons: Strong push for products/color services

I had my hair cut by Lauren and not only is she sweet as can be but she made my hair look cute, too, which isn't a claim that many stylists have been able to make. Her flexibility with hours makes it so easy to schedule, too!

I tried this salon for the first time and was extremely pleased. Lauren took her time to understand my needs and gave me one of the best cuts I have had in years. I am sending all my friends to give it a try.

I had a great experience with Lauren, who is new to Portland. I think she did a great job envisioning just what I wanted for a big change. I was very happy with her and with the salon. The price was a little steep (they really push the products) but does include a free trim, so that makes up for a lot. I will absolutely be back.

The whole experience was great! The salon is in a nice location with easy parking, and the vibe is somehow both energetic and relaxing at the same time. Lots of bright natural light so you can actually tell what you're going to look like out in the real world.

My stylist was Lauren and I have nothing but good things to say. I got highlights for the first time since high school and I was very nervous. They look great! Just as if I'd been out in the sun and my hair had naturally become this way. I've gotten loads of compliments. The cut is easy to maintain and to style, and she really spent time after the cut showing me how to do it myself. Best of all, she offers free bbang trims between cuts. With a little pixie cut like mine that is a huge help to keep me from looking like an ungroomed terrier between cuts!

I had Lauren as my stylist, and she was fantastic. I told her I was growing my hair out, and she not only asked me what I wanted it to look like now, but what I wanted it to look like eventually (which I've never been asked, but is actually kind of important). After spending maybe 10 minutes figuring out exactly what I wanted based on my hair type, and my usual styling routine, she proceeded to give me the best haircut I have ever had. At different steps she explained what she was doing and how I could repeat it at home. She even handed me the straightening iron so that I could practice straightening it the way she was doing it. I came away feeling like I'd gotten a better cut than I have ever imagined getting, and I know how to do it at home, too.

I walked into Blu on a whim this past Saturday, hoping to get my haircut as I was going to be involved in a last-minute photography project and wanted to look my best. I was half-expecting a frantic salon and swift "No, we're totally booked" or "We'll TRY and fit you in in about 3 hours." What I got was a very pleasant surprise. I was greeted with a smile by the receptionist and asked hesitantly if anyone was available to cut my hair and shape my eyebrows. Though the salon was indeed buzzing with customers, it still had an air of relaxation and the friendly receptionist said it was no problem and that Charlotte could take me. Then she asked if I wanted some water, soda, or BEER! I liked this place already.

Charlotte attended to me immediately and sat me down to ask what I wanted to do with my hair. I said that I had been contemplating getting bangs, but hadn't had them since I was 8 years-old and I wanted to leave as much length to the rest of my hair as possible. She listened very attentively and asked questions to make sure she understood exactly what I was looking for.

She took me back to do my eyebrows first and was very gentle. They turned out great. Then she took me to get shampooed and she instantly became my new best friend when she threw a little neck massage in there!

When I returned to the chair, I have to say I was a little nervous. What if the bangs turned out weird and I looked ridiculous for the photo shoot instead of awesome? Charlotte took her time and her relaxed demeanor put me at ease, even while the years of bang-growth got chopped off in an instant.

While she was shaping and styling my hair, Charlotte told me what all the products were that she was using and why she was using them. She really seemed to tailor what she used to my hair and wasn't trying to hard-sell me anything.

When all was said and done, I looked in the mirror and couldn't believe how extremely awesome my hair looked. It was easily the best hair cut I had had in a LONG time! I was ecstatic. Everyone else in the salon agreed at how well the new style suited me. I felt prettier than I have in a WHILE.

Needless to say, I will DEFINITELY go back and see Charlotte. She is AWESOME. I highly recommend her and the salon to anyone looking for quality without pretension.

I haven't had a consistent hair stylist in several years. I had been to Blu once to get my hair done for a wedding and I liked it, so when I moved over to the east side, I decided to give them a try.

I ended up getting my hair cut by Tasia, and she has done a great job the two times I have been there. I had shoulder length hair and wanted to go pixie short, but she recommended doing a less dramatic "transition" cut which I am so glad she suggested! The transition cut, while it wasn't what I originally had in mind, was so cute and I received tons of compliments on it.

Yesterday, I went back to get the pixie cut, and I love it as well. Tasia listened to my input while giving her own suggestions and the outcome was great. She is very helpful in offering styling tips so this morning, I felt fairly confident in doing my hair on my own.

Also, she does free bangs trims in between cuts, which gives you an extra week or so that you can wait before your next cut! :)

Needless to say, I have already scheduled my next appointment.

Don't let that fool you, though- these women are professionals! I have really hard to manage hair and Trish did an absolutely amazing job with it. I finally found a salon with the perfect combination of friendliness AND skill. They definitely earned my repeat business.

It's not easy finding a place to get a really good haircut for a guy but now that I've found my place I'm never going anywhere else. April is amazing, I told her what I wanted and she disagreed and told me why and started cutting away. She nailed it, I couldn't have even described to her what she gave me. She got a feel for my personality and made the hair match. April, a blessing upon your children's children.
Oh and they use the best brand of products there too, Bumble and Bumble. Amazing, what I've looked my whole life for.
Thanks,
Loren

I also see Jen and she is a wonderful! She does great things with wavy/ curly hair and she is friendly and always listens to what you tell her. I would recommend this salon !

So here's the deal...I have had my fair share of bad hair cuts, so naturally when looking for salon's I decided to actually look at the reviews of a place instead of just walking in on a whim. Blu jumped out at me right away the first time i walked by after reading reviews on it i decided my gut instinct was good this time so why not check it out. All the girls working were friendly and helpful. When i met Sara I had a good feeling. She actually listened to me. I've never had a stylist actually listen to me exactly. In fact i even held back on how many layers i wanted as not to come home with 3 inch long hair, Sara listened and when she had any suggestions she made you feel like you could actually make your own decision. Not where they pretend to hear you but cut finishes and its nothing like you imagined. Well you wont get that here. Blu was an excellent experience, i will forever be coming here.

I lucked into finding Jen Perkins back when she was at another salon and followed her to Blu. It's a fun and cozy salon in SE Portland, where they take care of their customers. You can get free bangs or neckline trims between major cuts and they always offer you water, tea, coffee or a beer depending on the time of day.

I have naturally curly hair that grows at different speeds and thicker in some areas than others. Jen has always been able to bring out the natural curl and give me fabulous layers that last for 8 weeks between cuts! I'm often complimented on my hair, and enjoy the fun conversation with Jen and the other stylists.

Definitely recommended highly!

I like to get a great haircut and color without the sometimes pretentious feel of high-end salons. I went to Blu based on the reviews I read at City Search and was pleased... with a bit of mixed feelings.

I went to Peggy and my first hair-cut was excellent. I went back and did not like my cut, with my friends finally agreeing that I had a dreaded "bad hair-cut." Peggy was out of town when I called for some fix-it-up help and Sara worked with me. She was amazing. She worked on it a bit to change the cut (already short so we didn't have many options) and then spent a significant amount of time teaching me how to style it. Peggy didn't have an opportunity to fix it and as I said, but I really liked my first cut & color with her.

But, I am going with Sara for my next appointment. She was open, friendly, and seemed to be able to "see" what I was looking for. I have not had her color my hair yet.

I will say that the overall feel of the salon is relaxed, something that means a lot to me. Everyone talks to you and they seem to pitch in to help each other out. It certainly seems to have a good vibe going there!

So, why not 5 stars?

1. I had mixed results (I'll write again after my next appointment).
2. The cost. Yikes, it hurt when I paid!

I hope that helps as I know how important it is to find a good, no-great salon and stylist! Overall, I am thrilled to be going back and I believe Sara will be a "lifer" hairdresser.

I have been having Trish cut my hair for well over a year now, which for me is unheard of. I used to be a hair-dresser/salon-hopper! Trish (and Blu) put an end to my hopping!

Since the first time Trish cut my hair, she has consistently given me the BEST HAIRCUTS EVER. People are always asking me where I get my hair done. Trish LISTENS and somehow manages to figure out the idea I have in my head and then makes it happen. She is AWESOME! I have referred her to three of my close friends. In fact, one of them is getting married and Trish is doing her hair!

If you are sick of so-so (or downright BAD) haircuts, then you need to stop into Blu. The staff is very considerate, always willing to help, and have a great sense of humor! I highly recommend this salon and Trish!

P.S. Thank you Trish for all of the great cuts! Can?t wait to come back again soon! Sorry this review is LONG overdue. :o)

Since moving back to Portland, I've struggled to find a stylist here I like. After sampling a few places and not really being happy with the results, I finally found Blu and Sara. She's great! Sara listened carefully to what I wanted and made helpful, knowledgable suggestions. She gave me beautiful, multi-dimensional color--no stripes--and a cool layered cut that fits my hair type, my style, and my age. I am definitely going back!

I went in yesterday to Blu for the first time with bleached to distruction hair. April worked wonders giving me the best blend of colors i have gotten yet. Very good cut too! After two salons I am finally glad to have found a stylist I can trust with my hair. The place is clean and the staff is friendly and if you want a very artistic, knowlegable professional at a reasonable price (nearly unheard of these days) ask for April. You won't be disappointed.

I just moved here from New Mexico and was worried I wouldn't find a good hairstylist. Sara came highly recommended by a guy I met at an AT&T store. I took his advice and made an appointment. She did an absolutely fabulous job! I am so glad that I decided to get my hair done by her. The prices are a little bit more than I am used to but I feel so confident with my new hairstyle that it was definitely worth it. I won't be going anywhere else for my hair... You won't leave disappointed!

I had a great experience at Blu a week ago. The stylist, Tricia, really listened to what I wanted and what I wanted is what I got but even better than I anticipated. I am a no-fuss hair person and usually am disappointed the days after a cut because I refuse to do all the products and fru-fruing the stylist does when I initially get my cut. Well, as I said, it has been about a week since the cut and I love my hair more and more!

I will definitely go back. The price is right, the place is pleasant and comfortable. The people are nice and most importantly, talented at what they do!

Jill is my stylist at Blu. First visit Jill did a really complete evaluation of my hair (texture, hair line, etc.) and my facial shape before recommending a new style. She did a fabulous job on the cut and styling, I've gotten many compliments on it, and highly recommend her. Jill is interesting, friendly, but professional and clearly very competent. The atmosphere of the salon is sophisticated without being pretentious, and the place is lovely. It's clear that the staff there is serious about style and design, and they work at a higher level than other salons. I love the place.

I give this place five stars. April is pure magic. I went to her after getting a bad haircut and she was able to fix it and make it look amazing. I love how she cuts my hair. She's more than able to give you a great cut, she's able to visualize what style will make you look even more beautiful. I am SO thankful that I found her. She rocks. I HIGHLY recommend going to her.

I love this salon. April is the best. She always gives me a GREAT haircut and I leave feeling beautiful. Plus, she is super nice and really listens to what I want. Everyone here is very talented and friendly and I highly recommend them. Added bonus-they have great original artwork on the walls.

.

Blu is the only place I have ever felt comfortable having my hair done and Peggy is a rock star among hair stylists. She has always given me the hair style I ask for, but she is also knowledgable about current trends and her suggestions have always made me look beautiful!! Her staff is well trained and keeps up with trips to NYC for all the latest in fashion, makeup and hair trends. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable, but also supports local artists with the rotation of artwork she displays for sale. I Love this Salon and Peggy is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was my first visit to Blu salon and I now I'm hooked. I came in with a "hair story" and a skeptical attiude, but Sara took me in and made it all better. She actually listened to what I wanted and didn't want my hair to look like and was able to give me a sweet cut. She took her time, mastered my troubled bangs, and treated me like a real person, not an uptight customer overly concerned about her hair (which I was). Plus, the perks are great. Not only did I get 20% off my first cut, free samples, and a complementary bangs trim, I also left feeling well treated and respected. Blu is a friendly salon environment where you don't feel embarassed for cutting your own bangs or intimidated by the great looking stylists. Thanks Sara, you rock!

Pros: Knowledgeable and friendly stylist, got an appointment right away

Cons: none that I experienced

When I went into the salon, the environment was really amazing. There was music, and everyone was talking to everyone....I have long hair and alot of times when I go to a place and say that I want something more stylish, they just chop my hair. When you go in ask for Sara. She did amazing things with my long blonde hair, AND its still long and blonde. I love it. Also, there was her co worker there who said Sara cut her hair, and she had short hair. And her cut looked amazing. Sara is able to work with a variety of hair length and styles and is amazing at all of them. I feel confident that the other stylists at the salon are probably also very talented. Another bonus? If you are reading this and you go in, you get free trials sizes of bumble and bumble product, which is really great stuff. And, you get a discount on your cut, too. Plus, parking around there is really easy to attain. I wasactually able toget my cut same day, but that was because there were cancelations, and they reccommend you call in advance to schedule an appointment. So you should make one today!

April is a great stylist, she listens to what you want and does a great cut. My cut always grows out well, which means she knows what she's doing. They give you beer while you wait and while you get a cut, it's fabulous!

I have been going to Blu for about 7 years. Peggy always cuts my hair in a cute style. She also does a great job coloring my hair. I always get compliments on my hair.

Jill is really a great stylist, too. She cut my hair twice while Peggy was out. She was courteous and wanted to make sure I was happy with my hair cut. I was!!!

I highly recommend this salon. The stylists keep up with the latest styles, cutting, and coloring techniques. Give them a try.

After a long search for a stylist who gave a great haircut, a friend recommended Blu Salon & Jill. My first impression entering the salon, was what an eclectic blend of decorating styles, from the chandelier in the reception area to the original art on the walls by local artists. Each room was unique & pleasurable to be in. I was greeted warmly by the attentive staff. Jill thoroughly went over what I wanted in a style, color & haircut, she made some excellent suggestions that I had not thought of, an indication of a top notch professional in my book. I was so pleased with the results. Needless to say the whole first experience was fabulous, when I returned for my second appointment with Jill it was even better. I was complimented so much about my cut, color & style by friends & family that I will be a loyal client of Jill's & Blu Salon from now on as will all who I've recommended.

I got so lucky when I found Jill at Blu Salon, which makes me wonder what kind of haircut czchristine was going for (geriatric? Severe? Boring?) when she found her haircut so bad. Every haircut I get from Jill is better than the last. People actually stop me and tell me how gorgeous my hair is and/or who cuts my hair (strangers! a lot!). Honestly, if she doubled her price, I?d happily pay it. I have a friend who flies up from San Francisco for time with Jill when she needs a good haircut. And Blu Salon has a lovely atmosphere ? friendly and classy. That czchristine had a problem with the hair stylists talking about their lives (chatting at the hairdressers! Oh, my!) makes me think she?d be happier sticking with her old stylist at Super Cuts, or just cutting it herself.

New to the area, I decided it was time to try to find a Portland stylist-- but I went to the wrong place! I got a horrible haircut by Jill a couple months ago, and am still having trouble growing it out. Seeing all these rave reviews, I thought people should know about a very different experience here! I went in looking to get my growing-out bangs blended in-- instead she didn't touch the bangs and gave me very short layers in back, with a weird flip at the bottom. It was like a bob which ended below my head, with leftover hair hanging below it, the WORST!! I went back to get it fixed and she took a little length off the bottom which made it easier to deal with, but honestly I've never had my hair cut so shabbily. The layers were also done very ratty and stringy. Environment here is also unprofessional-- when I came to get the repair cut, 2 employees were gossiping about their dating lives up at the entryway.

Cons: Bad cut, bad environment

I was in Blu back in April and had the BEST experience. Not only did I come out with EXACTLY what I wanted, but with the wonderful feeling of knowing I looked good! :) Until I experienced Blu, I had a hard time finding someone to do my hair the way I wanted. April Warner accomplished my dreams of great color! Unfortunately, I relocated to Florida shortly after our first two sessions together, but I would go back to Blu if I was ever in town again. I still keep my color the way she did it, and have yet to find anyone else as talented as she. The environment was great as well. Go to Blu, you won't be sorry!!!

Next to going to the dentist, getting a haircut is one of my worst fears. Girls, you know why...remember that time you went in for a cute shoulder-length bob and came out with Oprah Winfrey's poufy hair - - circa 1980? Or when you asked for a trim annd ended up with a virtual crew cut?? Well, I do! Thankfully, I finally found a place that does exactly what you want, only better. I went to Blu last week after reading positive reviews online and Tricia was fabulous. She was funny and chatty and gave me this adorable asymmetrical bob that's shorter in the back and works great with my springy curls. From now on, Blu is the only place I trust to do my hair right!

I had heard great things about Blu a Salon and gave it a shot. The first impression met all my expectations from walking in the door and feeling comfortable with friendly people all around! Peggy gave me an incredible cut and the color is super cute! She took her time, made sure every piece of hair was ?perfect?, and gave me some easy tips on how to style it at home. I left the salon feeling relaxed, confident, and had great hair! I have gotten numerous compliments (even from people I don?t know) and think every woman should get the a-line bob! I will definitely go back!

It happens to me all the time . . . I leave a salon looking great. Hair all gooed and gunked, blown dry - picture perfect, wishing I had someplace special to go. But thats the final hurrah!

I am not a pro, can hardly take the time to blow-dry never mind fuss with my hair. After Jen gave me a short cut, my hair looked, well, great. Curled in the back, sleek and smooth bangs - I knew it would never look like that again.

And it hasn't - but it is such a great, versatile cut, that I can do most anything and my unruly curls fall into place. Now that's a good hair cut!!

Finding a new hairstylist can be very stressful, unless you're lucky enough to come across this salon!!! I went in for a color job...and I am so happy with the job April did!!! ...what an awesome awesome job!!! Shampoo is like getting a massage, she does waxing too! - and she's so fun to talk with!! The WHOLE salon is fun - Everyone is friendly and I can't say enough great things other than to go there yourself and you'll see what I'm talking about!!! "It's like buttah"! Peggy filled in at one point and trimmed my bangs...I am usually nervous about getting my bangs cut...but she did an awesome job!!! Everyone there is so nice! Needless to say, I'm a very HAPPY client!!! :)

This salon blends style and sophistication with warm comfort and friendliness. I have been coming to Blu to get my hair cut by Peggy for years and will never go anywhere else. People always tell me that they love my hair and ask where I get it cut. She is genuinely friendly and always makes me feel comfortable and relaxed, and then takes her time making sure everything is the way I it. After I leave Blu I feel completely rejuvenated and looking and feeling great.

I just recently had probably the worst haircut of my life. But...if it weren't for that horrible haircut, I wouldn't have the amazingly-cute pixie cut that April gave me!! She completely fixed my hair and I will definately be back! I am new to Portland and I am so greatful that I found Blu! Thank you so much, April!

I tried Blu based on some reviews on this site, and I had the greatest experience there. I made an appointment with Jen who is a fantastic A++ stylist. I have very coarse, very thick, curly/wavy hair that is going gray. It is a challenge to get the shape and texturizing done in a way that is chic and not frizzy. I usually have to "settle" for some things not being the way I like. But Jen did everything right. I mean everything!! She listened, she put a beautiful shape in my hair (I got an elongated pixie cut), she texturized like crazy without using the frizzmakers (shears, razors, etc.). She really understood how this hair can get "wiggy" if you don't get the bulk out. I am so happy to have found a stylist who can give me a great shape, great texturizing, and great debulking in the same haircut. Also, she really paid attention to the picture I brought and gave me the cut I asked for (except I think hers looks better than the picture). I will definitely keep going to this salon.

I have been searching for a hairstylist in Portland for the three and a half years that I have now been living here, and I finally found her at Blu! Trish gave me a fun, flirty haircut and introduced me to the amazing Bumble and Bumble products used at the salon. Not only did Trish do a fabulous job on my hair that left me glowing all day, but she was a lot of fun to chat with. I would recommend her and the salon to anyone who is looking for a new hairstylist.

Ok...I have hair. Lots of hair. HAIRZILLA. It falls out and wraps around people's ankles in the bathroom. They scream for help. There's nothing I can do. I'm on the bed, drowning in HAIR. I'd get it cut more often...cut into a cute, layered style...but for the past 10 years of my short-ish life, NO ONE has been able to cut my hair without making me look like a Country Music Awards Nightmare or some sort of Hot Topic reject. I say "THIN IT OUT" and they timidly *snipsnip* "okay you're all done! that'll be $145" AAAGGH! But then...THEN I FOUND BLU. I went there with a mission. LAYERS! Thinned out layers. They immediately paired me up with Jen, who is amazing. She knew what to do. Oh thank you God, someone who knows what to do. She's stylish. She's cool. She's an artist. And she gives you WHAT YOU ASK FOR and makes you look like a motherf**ing goddess. I feel hot. I look hot. And the cut had an awesome price tag attached. What's not to love? I'm going back again and again. Jen Rocks, Blu Rocks!! Also: Bumble and Bumble products are awesome, no pressure to buy...but the staff is really great at being honest about what each product will do for you, if you ask. :) GREAT!

Jen, at Blu, recently changed my hair style and I was bombarded by compliments from Portland to New York City! I love getting my hair cut there, it is a cozy setting and am always offered tea, water or beer when I enter. There is no pressure to purchase their Bumble & Bumble products, but they are very informative about its benefits. It took me over a year to find a hair salon I liked and I finally found it at Blu!

I've been looking for a hairstylist since I came from New York over 13 years ago. I had someone who did soap stars. I thought I'd never find April but I did and her cuts are always great and the color is too. And she's sassy and that's great 'cause so am I.

I walked into Blu to get my bangs trimmed and ended up talking to Jill for 15 minutes or more while she did my hair. I spilled all about the bad experiences that I've had at other salons and she was very sympathetic. She fixed some other things about my hair that were wrong from a previous haircut and for FREE!! She is my new hair stylist for sure.

This place is very nice, clean, and Jill is so sweet. This is definitely a place to check out.

I had my whole wedding partys hair done at BLU. They took wonderful care of everyones individual needs, with hair cutting,styling,waxing and make-up. Peggy gave me, the bride, a wonderful cut and color two weeks before. Peggy spent alot of time with me to make my hair perfect for my wedding day! The salon is very friendly and relaxing. I would highly recommend Blu for all your styling needs.
