Nicole is an amazing stylist at London Influence! I have been going to her for almost 10 years and I leave every time with a beautiful cut and color. I receive many compliments on my hair and always love to recommend people to Nicole. She

I have been in Portland a few years now and have had limited success with hairdressers so far. That was until recently. I had my cut and color done at a big named salon around town and the results were horrible. In my desperation I did a search online and found London Influence. They were able to get me in and not just fix the bad cut and color but actually give me the best hair I have had in years. Thanks to Robert for really taking his time on the whole process and explaining what he was doing. WHen I was done, I looked and felt like a new woman. Robert, you have a new client for life, thanks for saving me.

After getting extremely poor haircuts all over town, I had given up on ever having a "good" hair day -- then I tried Scott. Not only has he always given me a great haircut -- so I can shower, product and go -- he is wonderful about showing me how to style it myself when I want to straighten it and look wonderful.

Scott is also the master of color. I have messed it up (myself) and Scott has managed always to correct it -- even when I decided I didn't like black hair -- he was able to put it back to my normal medium brown.

I'm always comfortable with Scott and I know I'm going to come out looking great -- What more can you ask???? Thank you Scott.

My cut and color were better than I could have ever imagined. She fixed a bad color job that I thought I would just have to live with until it grew out, just a note the bad coloring job was not done by her. In addition, this woman actually listened to what I wanted and gave me great feed back about what she could realistically do with my hair. She is amazing!!!!!!

I have been going to Haylee for about 4 years now and she is the BEST! She has colored her own hair with every color in the rainbow.

Being a Flight Attendant I need to keep myself well-groomed, but I still like a hippie easy look at the same time.

Haylee gives me a cut that is easy to maintain for work and keeping up that professional look; yet at the same time a look I can wear to the beach and still look great!

GUESS WHAT HAYLEE IM finally engaged to that other Hippie Flight Attendant....I CANNOT WAIT TO DISCUSS a WEDDING HAIR LOOK...SO FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT READ THIS HAYLEE also does updos for weddings----vintage, chic, bohemian...anything.

YOU will not be disappointed with Haylee!

Cons: PARKING, driving from HOOD RIVER

I am new to Portland and followed the recommendations here to try London Influence. I went twice...both times the cut the BORING...I asked for something edgier and got same old, same old. The color was blah, too monochromatic. Not flattering. After the 2nd time I went back in for a re-do with the owner, who was pleasant, but the end result is that I have shorter hair than I wanted in a style I don't love with boring color and an empty wallet. $200...absolutely NOT worth it on any level.

I moved to Hillsboro about 2 years ago and have been searching for a good stylist. It's been one bad haircut after another. So I ventured into Portland and struck gold!

Sara Creech did my cut and color and I couldn't be happier. She really listened to what I wanted and then made some minor suggestions, which were perfect.

Looking around, I saw alot of great styling going on. The salon is very open and airy and the stations are positioned nicely. Your not staring at the person next to you.

The only semi-bad part was the parking. It's paid parking all around, but there was plenty of it at the time I went (4:00pm).

I have found my salon!

Relaxed, friendly atmosphere
Really understand my hair
Know what looks work for my face and lifestyle
Wonderful location

After 4 sessions with Scott I have never been disappointed. Each time I've left liking my hair more and more.
I've checked out the clients of other stylists and their hair looks great too.
This kind of salon is hard to come by but I used citysearch and found a winner!

I had some really dark hair, a combination of my former hairdresser and myself. I wanted to go lighter and my hairdresser said we could and after the consultation I knew I was in trouble. That's when I did a search for best hairdresser in Portland and came up with Robert. I went in and he explained the whole process and told me that he would do what he could but that I needed to be realistic. I was hoping for the best and felt confident in his skills. The entire thing went as he had said, and when I was done, not only did I have lighter hair, but I had a beautiful color and the best haircut I have ever had. He is the best ever.

Know why no one can get a good haircut this month in Portland? Because I already got it. Yup, my haircut and color took all the good hair karma out of every source in this fine city and all wound itself up on my head. I've been seeing Nicole for a long time now and I can't say enough about her - she is a hair wizard! And her latest creation has got to be one of the best haircuts I've ever had, and my color - it's amazing. Go see her. You will NOT regret it. Book early and then eagerly anticipate your visit. Get your color done too. You'll thank me. But you'll REALLY thank her. She's especially great to see when you're not quite sure what to do with your 'do - just trust her. She rocks the hair house.

Pros: Great location on the max line downtown

Cons: She's so good she books up!

I have been going to London Influence for nearly 4 years and LOVE it! I tried Ziva and a few others and did NOT have good experiences. I lucked out to find LI, and will always go for a cut and color as well as the occasional mani/pedi.

I have had bad hair for some time. I am not sure if my hair is difficult or just no one took the time. I recently saw Robert at London Influence and he changed all that. My hair has never, in my entire life, looked this great. I got new color and a new cut that not only looks awesome, but it's also easy for me to do at home. I LOVE you Robert, thanks for making my feel so good.

Rebekah at London Influence is hands down the best person to entrust your lovely locks. She is cheerful, professional, well trained, and above all, a master at her art. The whole joint (folks and space) put you at ease as soon as you enter, from art, to the warm smiles, to the lovely glass of wine while you're gettin' your do done. I would highly recommend London Influence and Rebekah specifically (although I have seen them all at work and they are great). So, when your ready to beautify, relax, and let the pros take over, go see Rebakah. I can't say enough about her. Happy Styling!

Pros: rad energy, flawless cut and color

Cons: not closer to my house

It is rare that a person can honestly say they have never had a bad experience with the same hair dresser yet I am here to say that is not the case with Rebekah. I have been a client of hers for 7 years. Going to another hair dresser is not an option. Rebekah is always pleasant and professional. I am hair styling challenged so I put all of my trust in her and that trust has never been broken. If you are looking for a hair stylist that listens and at the same time is not afraid to make suggestions then Rebekah is the one to call.

Pros: It is worth the money and time

Cons: Rebekah is so good it is hard to get an appointment

I've been getting my hair done there for years. The first time i walked in i was introduced to Rebekah. From that moment on i wont let anyone else touch my hair. She is friendly and professional. Even more importantly she listens to what i want and can makes suggestion on what color and style might look the best on me. She nails it every single time.(Color and Cut). I know that i can walk in to my appointment and say "just do your magic". That really says a lot because i am very AR and picky about my hair. I have sent many friends to see her and all of them have been thrilled with how their color and styles turn out. This last week i went in for a my color and cut and she did a straightening treatment. I have kind of wavy hair but i always flat iron it straight. Once again i am 100% loving my new straight hair. If you want to find someone who you can trust to give you great hair every time and has passion for what she does, than Rebekah is the one for you. Thank you Rebekah

Cons: Parking...but it is downtown so that shouldn't be a shocker.

I have been looking for a hairdresser in Portland for 3 years now. My search is over. I recently found Robert at London Influence and he did such an incredible job, I felt like I was on a makeover show. I honestly have never felt this good about my hair. I can't stop looking in the mirror and smile every time I see my hair. Thanks Robert for changing my hair in best way possible, my husband and kids all approve too. Big Hugs.

Rebekah did my hair, she was very nice and took her time. I ended up paying $206 to get my hair bleached, toned, and cut. ( According to the manager that is a "competitve price") If I would have known the price before hand, I would have gotten my hair darkened. (I wasn't sure what I wanted so it wouldn't have been a big deal to go darker) The cut looked choppy instead of nicely layered. (The manager did say I could come in and Rebekah would fix it but I'm not willing to take that chance)

I recently went into London Influence for a haircut. I work in the area and pass by it a lot. So one day called and set up an appointment with a more senior stylist and was booked with Scott. I am so happy I was. I got the greatest haircut ever and he is going to fix my color next month. I have never been to a hairdresser like him before. Nice, explained everything he did, funny, no attitude, and cute too. All I can say is my hair has never looked so good. Thanks Scott. The salon could use a little updating but that doesn't effect the great hair or the good time I had.

A friend of mine has been seeing Robert at London Influence for years. I have always loved her hair but didn't want to leave my hairdresser, well I'm not sure why, loyalty I guess. Well she got sick and I needed a haircut so I called my friend and got the salon's number, and made an appointment ONLY for a haircut. He was going to be just a fill in for this one time. That was all it took. I went in looking like a suburban mall girl and left looking like a fashion maven. Sorry to my old hairdresser, Robert has me for life. His cut has been simply amazing and easy to do. I have been stopped everyday since i got it cut. Now I can't wait to go back and have these grown out hilights taken care of. He is worth every cent and was fun to boot. Ladies, if you want to have amazing hair, Robert's the man.

I have been in Portland for over a year now. I have tried several salons and have always come away disappointed. I actually have been flying back home to get my hair done because of the mess that was happening here. A friend of mine sees Robert and I finally decided to give him a try. I was scared, but the flights to get my hair done were killing me. All i can say is OMG! He gave me the most amazing blonde color I have ever had. It is so beautiful and I feel beautiful as well. He kept my hair long and gave it such a great shape, that it is so easy to do. Thank you, thank you Robert for doing such a great job and making me laugh. See you in 7 weeks.

i just moved here from LA and was hesitant about finding a new hairdresser. I looked around and read reviews on here and decided to give Robert a try. WOW, is all I can say. My hair looks better than any hairdresser in LA ever did. The color is this amazing red and the haircut looks like I just came off some sort of photo shoot. i would recommend Robert to anyone looking for really cool hair or at least something a bit different. I get stopped every day and get great compliments on my new do.

I have been to many salons in Portland but not once have I ever got a haircut as great as the one I just got from Scott at London Influence. He was funny and helpful and also gave me beautiful highlights. He's got a client for life now. I wish I would have found him sooner, but oh well, I found him now. Thanks Scott for making me feel great.

I highly recommend London Influence. Scot Alexander is my hair stylist. I have received so many compliments on my new hair cut. Scot does a wonderful job of picking a hair design that compliments your facial features. He specializes in hair color and has a real art in doing it! You won't be disappointed!

I have long thick hair that's usually pretty boring. I have really wanted a style for some time but have been afraid of getting messed up haircuts. I recently saw Robert after reading about him here and WOW is all I can say. My hair is still on the long side but it is so cool and fresh looking. I have style and even my boyfriend was impressed. Thanks Robert for the best haircut I have ever had. I have super thick hair too and it doesn't look like it anymore and he didn't just thin out my hair either :) I can't wait till next month when you do my color.

London Influence has been the breath of fresh air I was looking for. Nervous about changing haircutters, because lets face it a longtime haircutter usually becomes a close friend. I was ready for a change-up, something just a bit riskier, edgier, new. Sarah delivered! Knowlegeble regarding color she gave me exactly what I was looking for: Fabulous Highlights, Great Color. As far as the cut, I got out of my box and went a little shorter (prior to attending a wedding in the fall). The compliments were amazing! I feel confident recommending Sarah & London Influence, the salon owner pushes his hairdressers to stay current with the trends and it shows.

As far as the cut, I got out of my box and went a little shorter (prior to attending a wedding in the fall). The compliments were amazing! I feel confident recommending Sarah & London Influence, the salon owner pushes his hairdressers to stay current with the trends and it shows.

Pros: Very Professional, Impressed w/the Color Room Lighting for True Color Selection

.

I recently saw Robert at London Influence and I have never been happier. He gave me a cut that finally fits my face and is also easy for me to do at home. The best thing for me besides the great cut, is I finally got the color of red I have been trying for forever. He nailed it first time. I am probably the happiest I have ever been with my hair. Thanks Robert for taking great care of me.

I went to see Robert at this salon based on the rave reviews on this site. Unfortunately, I got one of the worste haircuts of my life. I haven't made that mistake since I was 17. I went in with long layered hair below my shoulders and came out with hair up to my ears after saying "I wouldn't mind a couple of inches off". I went to visit my mom for Thanksgiving just after my haircut and she said it was a "real hack job". The layers were uneven and the style was unattractive. In addition, I was rushed out of the chair so fast at the end of the haircut, he didn't even take the time to show me the back of my haircut due to rushing to get to his next client. I was dumbfounded by the experience to the point where I wondered if he wrote all of his own reviews here on CitySearch. My recommendation is to arrange a consultation first and observe the stylists at work before setting an appointment and you may save yourself some tears. To their credit, I called them to let them know my disappointment and they refunded my money...but I wish they could give me my hair back.

After recently moving to Portland and trying to find a good salon, I've finally found a home! I've been there 3 times and couldn't be happier with my cut and color. Great customer service. The owner is great and my stylist even told me he provides benefits to the employees - a place/practice that I want to support. Sarah is priced very reasonable ($110 for cut and partial foil for my hair) and does an exceptional job. I've sent everyone I know to her. They are attentive without seeming too stuffy that some of the salons are unfortunately going for these days.

Pros: good vaule, great customer service, great color

Cons: parking, interior could use some sprucing up

My hair guy, Scott, recently moved to London Influence from Vancouver, and I am so glad he did. Now not only do I get the greatest hair in town, it is easy to get to, they have a great salon there and the staff were all very nice. My hair has always been great thanks to the loving attention of Scott. If you ever need someone to fix a messed up haircut or color, that's how I started with him, he's your guy.

I recently went in to London Influence, just as a fluke. I needed my hair done and it wasn't looking very good. I put my trust in a new guy named Scott. He truly knew what he was doing. I now have the best color and cut I have ever had. I was in and out in under 2 hours. Not only did he give me great hair, he was really, really nice and a lot of fun to chat with. Scott, you will be seeing a lot more of me and my friends, now that I have found the greatest hair guy in town. Thanks again.

London Influence is a great salon. I was referred to MIchelle for a cut and color. She rocked!! She is the only one I have found in Portland who did my color correctly and the haircut was perfect. I really like the salon also, as it is easy to find. Everyone was very friendly and the salon was clean. I will definitely be a regular.

Cons: Parking is on the street or lot, so not free.

I recently saw Robert after reading about him here on CitySearch. Now I don't usually use the internet to find hairdresser but since my luck has been down, i figured, what do i have to lose. What I did not plan on was leaving the salon with the best freaking hair I have ever had. Between my color and my super chic new haircut, I feel like super woman. I was always blessed with good hair, but I never knew it could be this GOOD. Thank you Robert for bringing out my inner Diva and making me into a hair goddess, the envy of all my friends. I'm sure they will all be calling you this week.

Pros: Robert, superb color, amazing cuts

Just saw Scott last week and he really turned my hair around. I got great color and a new cut. I have been a regular at LI for a few years, and this is the best my hair has looked ever. Thanks for taking time to listen to me and give me such really amazing hair.

I used to be the laziest person when it came to my hair. Since moving to Portland four years ago, I have been to several SuperCuts and some crappy place at the mall. Granted, I was on a schedule of one haircut a year, so it wasn't a big deal. I had a wedding coming up this fall, and knew that something had to be done with my hair - at least a nice trim - so after reading these reviews I went to LI. Nichole was super sweet, and didn't pick on me too much about my hideous haircut. She gave me a nice trim, nothing drastic since I was nervous about changing things up before the wedding (although anything would have been an improvement). Thankfully, on that first visit, I made a return appointment - you're supposed to get your hair cut every few months!?!? The next time I went in, I had a few pictures and wanted some bangs. She went to work, and I have the most AWESOME haircut ever. Literally. I know, you're saying I don't know anything about hair, I'm a lazy novice. Well, I know what looks good, and I know that I feel like a million bucks - thanks to London Influence. I actually care about my hair! Nichole is a pro, it is quite obvious. Thank you guys so much.

Pros: Talent, Service, Beautiful Salon

I just saw Robert very recently for the first time. Now I had some bad cut and color experiences since I have been here in Portland. I miss my guy in LA. But not any more. When I saw Robert he knew exactly what to do. Cut, Color, Style. He explained to me what I was getting and why. Why hasn't anybody done that before? I don't know, not even Mr. LA did that. When I was done I had the most incredible haircut and color I have ever had. My hair was so shiny and it's such an easy cut to do in the morning. Thanks Robert for really being an artist.

I just recently had my hair cut by Michelle and I have to say that she is not just an average hair stylest. Her attitude and views of cut and color surpasses anyone I have ever met. She actually LISTENED to my concerns about cutting my long hair (it's above my ears now) and told me exactly what I should go for. She gave me the cutest pixie cut and the most amazing color and I swear I don't go a day without at least SOMEONE telling me how great my hair is or asking where I got it done. MICHELLE...I'LL FOLLOW YOU WHEREVER YOU GO...but please don't leave because it took me 34 years to find you. With her amazing knowledge and understanding of hair (did I mention she is a color instructor?), you better make your appt. early. Just go in and see Michelle..She's the tall exotic redhead with the magic scissors!

So I am a total convert. I have recently joined the masses of Robert faithful. I saw him on a recent trip into downtown Portland from the 'burbs. I have to say, I have never had that kind of hair experience before. He asked me a few things but mostly what he did was tell me what I needed and why. By the time I was done I felt like I had been on one of those makeover shows. I ran right out and had my makeup redone and bought some new clothes. Thank you Robert for bringing out what i never thought was possible, me with gorgeous hair. My husband and kids both gave me compliments and that has never happened. You're the best!

I?ve been on a quest for a new hair stylist for the last seven years? with some very poor (and often pricey) results. But as of today, that has changed!

I want to give a big thanks to John @ London Influence? He listened to me, asked relevant questions about my desired style, and then, (brace yourselves!!)?he cut my hair EXACTLY the way I wanted it. (Over the last seven years, I think I became conditioned to NOT getting what I had asked for).

This is the first time in seven years that I have not had to go back to the stylist for a correction. But more than that, his work is fantastic. I cannot recommend John highly enough. (I?m seriously picky to begin with?but he ?nailed? every aspect of the cut I asked for).

Thank you SO MUCH John? You?ll be seeing me again soon!

Pros: Precision in hair cut; Got what I asked for; Many stylists to choose from; Not pretentious; A fun staff; Right on MAX line.

Cons: Could be a little difficult for "tight budgets" (but, IMHO, well worth every penny! )

I come from a mixed ethnic background. My hair is dark and on the thick side. I usually end up with orange highlights and some jacked up hair cut. For the first time in forever, i have beautiful hair, cut and color, and it is all thanks to you Robert. You knew exactly what i needed and more importantly. what I did not want. He looked at my face and hair and decided what I should have. I have never been this happy before. Thank you for being a beacon of hope to us chickas living in Portland. I will be sending all my girls to you now.

But thank GOD you do. I found Robert a few months ago from this website. I have had extremely bad cuts and color since moving to Portland some years ago. Once I started seeing Robert, that all changed and so has my social life. My hair was just so blah and now, in Robert's words, my hair is "rahhh". I just wanted to say thank you for doing such a great job on my hair, making me laugh, and always giving great advice and keeping up to date on the food scene here in town. I know it's just hair, but you have really changed my life. Thanks for helping me turn the right few heads.

I found London Influence on City Search a couple of years ago when I had just moved to the Portland area and had the dreaded assignment of finding a new Salon. As many of you reading this now, I was extremely nervous about stepping into a new salon and putting my hair into the hands of someone new as I had the same stylist in CA for many years. I read the reviews and decided to try it out. I worked with Rebecca and have to say she is amazing!! Could not have been luckier to find someone as talented as her on my first attempt! She is phenomenal at color and always able to amaze me with fabulous cuts. I am one of those people who have many demands and she always is able to accommodate and WOW me!! Thank you Rebecca for all you do for my hair!! I always receive so many complements and you always seem to be able to decipher exactly what I am looking for and provide extraordinary results!

I went in to get my hair fixed recently by Robert. I had a bad dye job and cut and was sure there was nothing that could be done about it, but having read about him here I thought just maybe he could help. Not only did he help, he completely turned my hair around. I left with an awesome color and a great cut. I thought for sure it was going to take a year to get my hair back again. Thanks Robert for saving my hair and making me look so great. BTW, thanks for the great restaurant recommendations.

I have been going to Rebekah for the past two years, and my hair has had a wide variety of cuts (super short pixie to shoulder length with layers). Every cut has been fabulous! I generally don't enjoy getting my hair cut because I never can accurately describe what I am looking for, but Rebekah always manages to figure it out and give me exactly the haircut that I want. I am moving to Eugene this year but will coordinate trips back to Portland with haircuts from Rebekah.

After reading the reviews on here I decided to give Robert a shot. My hair was out of control and the color was horrible. Why do hairdressers give me orange hilights? I explained to Robert what I hated about my hair and he then told me what we needed to do to fix all the things that I didn't like. He actually TOLD me what we were going to do, at last a professional that i didn't have to try and use my limited knowledge to explain things. When I was done, I was the happiest I have ever been with my hair. Beautiful chocolate brown hilights in my dark brown hair, no more orange, and a very stylish, modern looking hair cut. Thanks Robert for changing not just my hair but how I look and feel, and for being a great listener.
