Let's just say I'm not happy. This salon is OVER price!! Seriously? You charge me 100$ for some crappy high lights? I know I had the hroupon that worth 139$, 100$ for hair services and the rest goes to something else.The person whom Was in

I have been a Halo customer since the first day it opened. I love the place. The staff are friendly and helpful. The interior is elegant. The products are great.

I have been a customer of Dianne??s (the owner) for even longer than that. In fact, I followed her to Halo from another salon. She is simply fantastic. I, we love Dianne so much that both my husband and I go to her for our haircuts. She is a wizard with her scissors and the styling brush, and an artist when it comes to color.

I have fine, soft hair. Dianne cuts it so that it looks full and stylish. The styles are easy to manage on your own and I always get compliments on my hair. Recently, I started coloring my hair and I just love the way Dianne manages to make me look just like I used to look, only better. My husband??s hair is wavy and thick. Dianne does a great job with it!

I decided to try this salon after three awful haircuts since moving here from the northeast and I wasn't disappointed. Nice clean space, Bumble & Bumble products which I love and a stylist, Josh, who understood my frustration and delivered. Got my hair colored too and love the natural, shiny color! Got lots of complements at the family wedding I attended. Also found parking around the corner fairly easily which is sometimes hard in Portland. I will return.

Being new to town, I was looking for a great salon. I checked the reviews of Halo salon on Citysearch and thought I would give it a try. Jason, the stylist, gave me an excellent haircut. He followed the general lines of my current hairstyle, but gave it an extra zing - an extra flair. He's very talented - fun - and respectful of what you want/need. I will go back!

There are three points I would love to make about this place:
1. I loved my hair cut - I have never paid more than $40 for a hair cut, usually including tip. I believe that my hair should look nice, but I have always been low maintenance. Josh was my hair stylist and he kept is simple and easy to manage. It was everything I wanted and more. I was surprised to find out that my hair cut and lip/brow wax only cost me $65.00, I was expecting much more (I had a 10% off coupon from this site) I am terrible at math and tipped 35-40%. My total tip was $26 on a $65 bill :) But it was TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!!
2. Personal service was excellent - when I originally check in I was with Sydney, she hadn't asked my name and since I thought I was late she thought I was her client. I was pleased with the level of service I got from both her and Josh. When I told Josh I didn't ever use product and never will he was awesome and didn't push any product on me. I had read all the reviews from this website including the good, the bad and the ugly. I was to the point and specific about what I liked and disliked and I got everything I wanted.
3. Out of my way - I have only been to Portland two other times, I live in between Seattle and Tacoma, but JOSH YOU CAN BE EXPECTING ME IN THREE MONTHS :) yep that is right, I LOVED this place so much that I am going to drive 3 hours + for a hair cut... I will be calling around Sept for an appointment.

Thanks Halo... also if you wanted to come to Seattle I would totally support you transferring Josh this way :)

I can't say enough about Cristina, she is absolutely wonderful. She not only listened to everything I had to say, she recommended and performed to perfection. The cut and color totally suits my face. I have found an incredible stylist!

A friend of mine always had the best hair cut & color, finally she told me about Josh at Halo. He does the best color, bar none, that I have ever had! In addition to his amazing skills he is great at making you feel like you are an old friend with in minutes of meeting him.
Really, if you want a great cut, color or blow out, you need to see Josh!

LAURIE ANN @ HALO

She has been amazing. She listens and delivers. I have been so happy with my hair color and cuts since she has been my stylist.

When I started going to her, Laurie Ann had to "organize" a bad hair cut that I just received (lots of layers) and repair some bad color (blond gone brassy). I think she worked miracles.

Cheers to Laurie Ann!!

Jess is awesome. In fact the entire staff at Halo. These folks know what they are doing. I have been a faithful client since they came to town and have not for once complained about their service.

I have never had a better experience than with Joelle S. at Halo salon!!!
Joelle is very friendly and knowledgeable with what she does - excellent colorist, and is very good with thinking outside the box and in, with cute, sassy edgy hairstyles.
I will never go to anyone else!
I have been going to her now since she came to Portland.

I've been to Halo twice now, and both times have been great. I've had my hair cut by both Jessica and Jess: both were just WONDERFUL. Jessica had a fantastic attention to detail giving me an excellent haircut that to this day is the best style I've ever had. Jess was also just beyond exceptional. II had her cut a style that was new for me. She listened to my every request, cut with wonderful attention to detail and was great to chat with. I can't thank either of them enough!

I created an account just so I could leave a review for Jess H. at Halo. (This is seriously the first review I've ever written for anything. Ever.) I cannot express how happy I am with my haircut; I can honestly say it's the best cut I've ever had. I went from shoulder-length to pixie, and absolutely love it. I've gone from long-ish to pixie before, but Jess did it perfectly. She asked questions and was great about taking it slow. Thank you Jess!

Great cut by Jess. Felt like she really listened to me and gave me the cut I was looking for.

Really nice building. And Stumptown coffee!

Having moved multiple times in the last few years, it is difficult to find and stay with one stylist and I can swear that I've found the worst in each city (including Portland). Along side the worst-of-worst hair cuts, I've had some decent ones that have had their flaws but I had come to accept that that's the norm when it comes to hair cuts. It can't be totally perfect right?

Think Again.

Not exaggerating, I have never had a hair cut I loved walking away from a salon. Never. Not with cheap hair cuts and not with expensive ones.
Not until Halo.

I've been to Halo 3 times now. My first haircut was with Jessica and I was floored by her attention to detail and the ability to nail everyone one of my endless list of requirements. Next I was with Jess H, a new stylist from Florida and I am beyond thrilled again. I went back to get my hair cut from her again last week and have zero complaints.

Jess, without prompting, remembered that I was aiming towards growing out my hair and that I was concerned with damage. I started to say I loved the last haircut she gave me and would love it to be the same but felt that the back was getting too heavy now and before I had even started to reach towards the back of my head to show her she said "it's getting a little heavy back here, I think we'll thin that out a little. It's probably just from the grow out". Amazing. Later, I remembered I'd forgotten to remind her that I liked my layers choppier and as she went to cut my layers she went in, exactly as the first time, and gave me choppy layers. I did a mental jaw drop.

I couldn't be happier with Halo and the service they've given me. I cannot attest to the bumble & bumble products they sold but I love the way my hair looks coming out so they're doing something right!

I whole-heartedly suggest that anyone looking for a change of stylist or just a regular stylist in general comes and pays Halo a visit.

I used to get cheap hair cut that costs less than $10 including tips for years. But after seeing Jessica at Halo Salon, I came to realize that if your hair cut and color still look great after 2-3 months, you should invest.

I had a horrible uneven bob when I first came in. Jessica fixed it gave me the sexiest A line bob (Posh cut) ever. I got tons of compliments on this cut. She is very good at listening and recreating what's in your head. She is extremely patient and understanding every time I am not pleased with the outcome. She would fix it until I walk out with a smile. She is awesome with color as well.

Now i wear my hair long with layers and she nails every cut also.

Come check this awesome place out!

I recently have had the privilage of having my hair cut and colored by Diane, the owner of this exceptional salon. Josh, who is another stylist has worked with me as well and he gladly showed me how to style my hair and use the products I purchased in the proper manner.
The first time I walked into the salon I was greeted with such kindness and understanding and not once did I feel uncomfortable. Communication and honesty is a vital part of the success at Halo Salon. The clients should listen to the professionals and their ideas and if need be compromise is always an option. The staff want you to leave the salon feeling beautiful and content. For those who feel their experience was less than worthy, convey your feelings in a kind manner and Diane will always make sure you are compensated in one form or the other.
I feel blessed to have this team give me the time and consideration every client deserves.
For the record, when we were finished I walked out of the salon looking like a million bucks and I am now turning some heads, which has not happened in a long time!

Pros: Superb, gifted and artistic stylists

paid 65.00 plus 10.00 tip and got a haircut that I could have gotten had I gone to Super Cuts, no joke!Stylists are obviously made to push the hair products for you to purchase, which is all good, but they're pricey ( I,m sure well worth it being Bumble and Bumble) but they mislead me by telling me that if your not happy with any of the product that you can return it, I repeat, return it, they don,t mention what they really mean is that you can only exchange it. I was talked into buying about 140.00 dollars worth of product which was promised to me that I could return it....not so. Because my haircut was so bad, I feel the products aren't doing what they should for my hair. Also the owner, Dianne, well to put it politely, isn't all that nice, should I say and ill informed, as I called Bumble and Bumbles North West distributor to try and resolve the issue, they stand behind their products 100 % and told me that she is supposed to give a full refund. The owner is dishonest and unfair and I won't be going back to Halo anytime soon and definitely won't refer anyone I know to them either

Jessica has amazing attention to detail and has worked with my hair with the same care and consideration I would give to my clients. My hair isn't easy to work with and of the times she's cut it, she's had her work cut out for her...it's been raggy and moppy before she began.

She is a pleasure to talk to and offers encouragement when I complain that "I can't work with my hair"!

-Thanks Jessica!

I was in search of a stylist that could transform my "Hagrid" long bushy hair into a short youthful do. Diane was recommended for the job by a freind who's hair that I admire has been in Diane's profressional hands for years. I was delighted with Diane's confidence performing this transformation, and left completely pleased, with a bounce in my step, looking forward to our next session.

I just had the best experience at Halo with the owner ,Dianne. She has just returned from training in New York with bumble and bumble. She went for color classes. OMG!!! My brunette hair has subtle hilites that she put on without foil and it looks so natural . As a brunette I have never really gotten great color because they always try to make me red or it looks brassy, My hair is beautiful, with warm gold pieces around my face but no hilight lines to worry about. She was so excited to do my hair and it felt nice to have someone have ideas and knowledge do my hair. I highly recommend Dianne for color and I am having it cut later next eek and am so excited to finish what we started.

We had a girls day out, me and my 10 year old daughter went to Halo salon for a new look. We walked in this cool and comfortable salon and were off offered coffee, tea or anything else to drink. Being from the world of retail merchandising, the hair products (which I love) were displayed beautifully. Dianne met us with a great smile and made us laugh our whole stay. She gave us both the BEST haircut we have ever had. Thanks Dianne, can't wait for our next girls day out!

Morekka does a fantastic job with both cut and color. I have been coming to morekka for years, and have never been disappointed. I would reccomend her to anyone, and have sent all my best girlfriends and coworkers to her. You can trust her with whatever look you are going for and she'll make sure you look your best!

I went to to see Marika, after reading positive reviews here. I brought a photo of a wanted haircut. I told her what I wanted done with the color. She acted like it was all going to happen. Well I ended up with a terrible haircut and color that could have come out of a RiteAid bottle.
I had to get my hair recut immediately or wear a hat for 2 months, and after spending 135 on both here I had to go spend another 100 somewhere else to get the color fixed. Truly unbelievable. She has no eye and no craft.

Sydney is the world?s greatest hairdresser!
I originally went to Sydney simply to have my long locks cut of to be donated to ?Locks of Love?. However I loved my new short hairstyle so much I made follow up appointments. Years later I have followed Sydney from her previous salon to Halo and been a client of hers for what seems like forever.
My hair his thick, course and naturally curly and she seems to really ?know? my hair as I have never had a cut that I have not liked. I have referred 2 people to Sydney who have also become faithful clients.
I can never move away from Portland (neither can Sydney) b/c finding a stylist that you love and trust is nearly impossible.
She?s the greatest!

I have enjoyed having Sydney color my hair for many years. Sydney has a nice way of helping me decide on the shade or highlights. She is good at undoing bad color - either home colors or other stylists work- my sister can attest to this. I have seen other clients that Sydney has done and am always impressed by the cut and color. Sydney is very personable and professional.

I have seen other clients that Sydney has done and am always impressed by the cut and color. Sydney is very personable and professional.

Pros: scheduling appointments,good coffee

.

When it comes to cut and color Sydney is the best! She is always able to give me exactly what I want and I have done lots of different colors from all over color to chuncky stripes or whatever she always listens to me and gives me the highlights and color I ask for. She knows what cut flatters my face or even if I want to keep it long she does that rather than do what she thinks might look good. I love a hairstylest that listens to you and that is what Sydney does! Here experience with color & cut is obvious and I am always happy with my hair when I leave Halo and I feel awesome. Their products are great and I also love the eyebrow wax service from Sydney-it is very relaxing-you get to lay down while having it done. From the music to Sydney the best stylist there, I love Halo! Thank you Sydney for doing my hair all of these many many years!!!!!

I was referred to Halo Salon, specifically Dianne for what I was told would be the best color and cut I ever had. I was skeptical, but made an appt. I found the salon to be unpretentious and Dianne to be very professional and also very funny!! We shared a few laughs, but when it came to my hair she was no joke. Very professional and recommended future options for my color and its grow out. I appreciated the fact that talking to her was easy yet she never treated me like I didn't have a clue ( I may not know everything about hair, but I know about MY hair) , I cannot recommend her enough, and when I needed my neckline a little shorter, she stayed late and there was no charge. Go to Halo, ask for Dianne. You will be so glad you did.

Pros: Dianne, good wine, lots of light

Cons: hard to get in sometimes but worth the wait.

Frizzy hair no more! Growing up with natural curls wasn't always fabulous. Finding a stylist that actually knew how to cut, color, and most importantly style curly hair was nearly impossible!!!! I found her.... Sydney rocks!!! She listens to my needs, she's got amazing product knowledge & has helped me rule my once unruly locks! Love the energy at Halo. Thanks to my amazing stylist Sydney & all the friendly staff at Halo! Did I mention the blowout... curly or straight Sydney helps me and my hair look fabulous.

So I just moved to portland last winter and let me just tell you how hard it is to find a good hair stylist, almost as hard as a doctor, but finally after trying many salons in the area, they will remain nameless, I found Halo. My luck is finally changing because I saw Jessica and not only was she simply delightful to be around but my hair looks the best it's ever looked. The color is so beautiful I still can't stop looking in the mirror and its been over a month............

I went in to Halo for the first time last month. I have driven by several times and always thought it looked like a cool space. The staff was warm and greeted me immediately, I had some questions about product and the girls up front told me what I needed to know. The owner suggested that I buy the travel size so that if I was not happy, I wouldn,t be stuck with large bottles that would go to waste. I really liked her and appreciated that they didn't try to sell me the whole store. Since she was so cool, I asked her what she thought I should do with my hair. She never made me feel bad or look at me like I was a hopeless case ( I confess, I am). I booked an appt. with her for a few weeks out and she gave me the best haircut and color I have ever had. I am a loyal fan of Diannes from now on. She was funny and unpretentious. It was a great experience for someone who has never really been a salon gal. I highly recommend Dianne and the rest of the girls seemed super cool as well. Also, I loved the bumble products and plan on buying the larger ones when I go back. I will never go anywhere else.

I have shopped around for many years for the perfect stylist and finally I found her. Morekka did a fantastic job of listening to what I wanted and then adding a little extra for the perfect hair-do. She is very easy to talk to as well as hilarious. The time flies by while you are in her chair. I have been back to see her many times and have never been disappointed. She is also very flexible with her schedule and willing to fit you you in.

I just moved from Eugene and needed to find a great stylist who could transform me from "hippie" to "hip" and Morekka did just that!!! Morekka, you ROCK!! I asked my buddy where he gets his hair cut and who does it because his hair is rockin and I needed a change. I went from shoulder length hair to a clean hip cut and am so thankful for the recommendation. I was definately freaked out about chopping it all off and am very glad I did, Morekka hooked me up!! All who know me love the transformation and I will keep going back fo sho!!!

I have been going to see Jessica for years! She always knows exactly what I want and is never in a rush to get me out of there. A glass of wine and great conversation is always expected! I love this salon (easy to find too!) and absolutely love the work that Jessica does. If she ever opens her own salon I will be the first to support her. Trust me on this :)

This is the first time ever that I can sleep on my hair and wake up with it looking great- now that's a great haircut! And...there is literally not a day that goes by that someone doesn't stop me on the street and compliment me on the cut and color. I wish I had a dollar for everytime that happened! I can't say enough good things about Morekka- she's personable, talented and CONSISTENTLY gives you a good cut. I never have to worry about what might happen- I just sit down and let her work her magic......

I recently moved to Portland from LA. A co-worker referred my to Morekka. Coming from "the land of the beautiful" my standards are very high. I told her to do what she thought would be best for my hair, as I wanted to see what she was all about. Not only did she give me the most beautiful hair color I've ever had, but she also gave me an amazing haircut that needs hardly any styling and still looks great. She's stuck with me for life.

I've been going to Halo Salon for a few years now and have seen a few different people when my stylist Jessica (who by the way is the best) isn't available and they're all talented. Jessica always knows exactly what to do with my hair, and it has never looked as good as it does now. Thank you Jessica and Halo Salon...

I've been having Penelope do my hair for over a year, and she is amazing. When she moved to Halo I naturally followed. The salon is great, nice open feeling, friendly reception staff, great location. Penelope is an amazing stylist, she seems to know exactly what I want, even with my lousy vague descriptions. I've sent several friends to her and all have been extremely happy. I can't recommend her enough, she is talented, fun, and has a great eye. She does the most amazing color that I've ever had!! Definitely go see her, you wont be disappointed by her or the salon!

In the past I never went to salons or had the same person cut my hair, I always just went to crappy master cuts or whatever was close. A friend of mine suggested that I go to Halo and have Morekka cut my hair. As a male I did not really think that there could be that big of a difference with hair cuts.......I was definitely wrong. I have received numerous compliments on my haircut since I started going to Morekka (people actually notice now). Morekka's expertice, attention to detail and overall good natured personailty topped off with a glass of wine has made my haircutting experiences much more enjoyable and with a much better end result!

Being new to Portland, I searched online and found good reviews for Morekka so I decided to give her a try. I feel lucky to have found a good stylist so easily, and I am pleased to have found someone so talented at doing hair (especially mine). If you are looking for a talented and fun stylist, I would recommend going to Morekka at Halo Salon.

Paid $55 for a senior stylist to cut my hair. The stylist was recommended by the receptionist based on my request for someone with experience cutting ethnic hair. I am asian and have thick coarse wavy hair and she completely ruined it. This is one of the worst haircuts I have ever had in my entire life. She didn't know how to shape or cut the layers or frame my face. She glanced at the photo I brought and said confidently "oh yeah, that'll look great on you". I walked out looking nothing like the cut in the picture - my hair was dense and puffy on top with no shape around the face or neckline. When I finally got home and saw the back of it - I was practically in tears! I couldn't believe how sloppy and careless it looked and had to have my boyfriend clean it up and layer it better. Its taken me nearly 3 months to grow out my hair so it is somewhat manageable.

I have been looking for someone for a long time. I asked a good friend of mine (a girl with good hair!!) who did her hair and she sent me to Morekka . I was a bit nervous because I have had some bad hair in the past. I walked in and was immediately impressed,.She was classy and on time. Talking with her, she knew her stuff ,I had a blast. I felt really great when I left and Morekka is the stylist for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been seeing Morekka for a little over a year and I am impressed every time I leave her chair. She is very confident in her recommendations of a style that would look good on me, and she always delivers. I am always impressed with my color and I feel very relaxed in her chair.

I have been going to halo for awhile now. I have seen three or four different people and all of them bring something new to the table. What I like about the salon the most is how open everyone there is. When I left, I had noticed there were some people not around and I asked the owner where they had gone/ were there any changes. She asked me specifically who I wanted to know about and told me where they had went. I have been at other salons and no one would help me find my stylist when they left. I really appreciated this information. I am staying there because everyone there is great, but it is nice to know that if I cannot get in with someone there, They can tell me where else I can go to be seen.

So for many years I always heard people talk about their stylist and I thought it was kind of funny that they would only allow one person to do their hair until I started having my hair done at Halo by Jessica. Jessica has now been doing my hair for at least the past five years and it looks amazing everytime. I now understand why many women only have one stylist, Jessica has been doing my hair for so long that she knows my hair and knows what to do with it so that I love the style, cut and color each and everytime I have it done. Thank you Halo and Jessica for making my hair look amazing, I love the compliments I recieve I feel beautiful always leaving the salon.

I don't know what's going on at Halo, but I went in to see my stylist Marcy, and the receptionist acted like she didn't exist and tried to book me with someone else. After about 5 minutes of arguing with me they finally admitted that she had moved to another salon and then gave me a *FAKE* phone number. I eventually tracked down Marcy at Le Reve and made an appointment. I can't believe how rude and phony they were, trying to push me into seeing someone who is not my stylist. Frankly, I'm glad I get to go to a new salon, no thank you Halo.
