The MOST AMAZING hair color I have ever received! After a nightmare experience at the salon I normally go to, I went to Paul in hopes of having my orange-green hair fixed. He completely exceeded my expectations! Paul spent almost 4 hours with me, making sure that each and every mistake my former hairdresser had made was corrected. I absolutely LOVE my hair now! The color is rich and has dimension... the brassy orange hue is 100 % gone! Paul is truly the most talented and devoted hair stylist I have ever met, and he transformed my ""ruined"" hair into a stunning masterpiece. If you have ANY sort of coloring or highlighting need, Paul is definitely the person you want to see!

INCREDIBLE! I hope Paul never leaves because it's taken me 18 years in Portland to find him! I've been to many 'good' salons: Blades, Tribe, Ward Stroud, on and on, but have not been happy with the cuts and color I've received, until now. I love my color and it lasts! Most amazing: Paul took a really terrible cut and transformed it into exactly what I wanted, in one appointment and without cutting my hair too short. I don't know how he did it. I've never taken the time to write a review of any business before but I'm elated with Blue Chair Salon. It gets my highest recommendation!

I made an appointment online, the next day I got a call from Ashley sayin I needed to rescheule . Ahsley told me the lady who had an appoinment before me scheduled online incorrectly therefore instead of rescheduling the lady who booked wrong Ashley made me reschedule. I did agree to come in at a different time as I still wanted to give the place a chance. I was the last appointment of the day and they acted I was inconveniencing them even though they rescheduled me. My haircut took a total of 15 minutes and was a trim even though I told Paul exactly what I asked for. I even showed a picture to Paul of how I wanted my bangs and walked out with completely uneven/chopped bangs. I will not be returning to this place nor will I recommend this place to anyone.

I recently had my hair cut and colored by Paul. He gave me a great cut and corrected my color so that it looks more natural. My husband was pleased! Paul provided me with tips on how to style my hair at home and suggested a nice lip and cheek color.\r
\r
Paul is very knowledgeable and progressive. I plan to be a loyal customer!\r

My bad! I previously mistakenly believed that a hair-cutter simply cuts hair, and that a $10-20 haircut is as good as a $50-60 haircut at a prestigious address. I was WRONG!

I honestly regret that waited until I am in my 50's to get great haircuts. I have been to Paul twice, and I L-O-V-E my haircut, every day, for the first time in my life. I am starting to like looking at myself in the mirror. The haircuts have prompted me to begin to take care of myself in other ways too!

I see Paul as a master artisan stylist. I plan to get all my hairstyling needs from Paul at Blue Chair Salon. Discover the difference yourself!

I have only had my hair cut 3 times in my life before I met Paul on 23rd St . All 3 times were a disaster.\r
I walked into Paul's Salon on 23rd St. with hair past my bum. I told Paul about my past experiences and also mentioned that my husband loved long hair, but, my kids kept telling me that I needed to do something with it. He suggested a few things and I agree'd. He cut my hair to the middle of my back and gave a lift with highlights. I went home my husband just smiled and my kids loved it. I have since went back several times and brought both son's, husband and daughter. They all are never disappointed with their hair when they leave Paul's Salon. \r
My hair is now chin length and my husband is still pleased with my hair. I always get comments from others and I always feel my time and money is well spent when Paul colors and styles my hair. I have never been disappointed with him. \r
I followed him to his own Salon ""The Blue Chair"" and tell anyone I can what kind of work he does. I know he takes pride in the work he does. It is like a picture that he is painting.

Lets just say I first saw Paul when I was 19. I'm going on 28 now and I still have not found anyone who can primp my hair the way he does. \r
I came with my mom to the Uptown Salon 2002-03 Although I did not have an official appointment, Paul fit me into his schedule. He transformed my bleach blonde-grown out roots into a beautiful auburn color. I could not believe it. I just picked out a picture of a girl advertising some shampoo and he pulled that same color on mine. I was amazed.The color looked natural. My hair;healthy.\r
Some go by the name of the salon itself. I realized when I returned to the same salon a couple years later and Paul no longer worked there; although they were nice. The results were not the same.\r
I last saw Paul in Febuary 09. This time my hair had grown out to the dirty dishwasher blonde it normally is. I was debating on what I wanted. A cut, a color? I gave Paul some ideas I had and again;he performed magic. He gave me bangs, layers and two daring colors I would have never chose, but I loved it! \r
There is no limit on what Paul can do.\r
Paul does hair like its an art. Every appointment he puts his heart and soul into that person. That hour and half you spend his Blue Chair; YOU are his focus.\r
I leave feeling pampered and beautiful every time and I have no doubt anyone he sees will feel the exact same way. I have spoken highly of Paul since that first day I met him.\r
Having his salon located just blocks from 23rd in Portland, is a bonus. \r
Paul is authentic and his skills unique. I have never been more satisfied with my hair than I have been with Paul.\r
Thank you so much!

Paul has exceptional skill and makes my hair look FABULOUS!! I am always happy with the result, he is consistent -- if I want the same look each time I get it -- and when I was ready for a change he listened and followed through. Paul is friendly and genuine, and you can tell he really loves his industry. He is meticulous and detailed, giving 100%. His cutting skills are highly advanced, as is his beautiful color. Thank you Paul !

Pros: talented and knowledgeable, great location, quality product

Just what i had been looking for a proffessional salon (the owner has over 30 yrs exp.) without all the pretention of your typical upscale portland salon. I had heard about them from a friend and decided to try them out, boy am i glad i did! I came to him with a horrible color job i had paid too much for at a pricy well known salon downtown. Paul(the owner and main stylist) knew exactly what tones to add to create a flattering color that i am constantly recieving compliments for. He was very fair and generous with his time, qualities which are sometimes very hard to find.I was told my hair would have to be stripped-which is extremely damaging- to achieve the color i wanted but paul was able to mix a beautiful color that was exactly what i wanted and after using a 4 part treatment system at no extra charge i left there with hair that has NEVER looked or felt better.

Pros: Hollywood hair at a reasonable price

Ive been seeing paul at the blue chair salon for a few months now and absolutely love my hair each time i see him. I go to him because he has an opinion of how my hair should look in relation to my face shape and coloring instead of just asking me what i want. Often in the past when ive gotten a great haircut i am dissapointed when the stylist fails to recreate it the next time but pauls consistancy is on point and i am always thrilled with the outcome. I never have felt rushed and am always greeted with a friendly attitude. Paul obviously has a great deal of experience a takes pride in his work even going so far as to refresh my color in between touch ups at no extra charge.

Pros: friendly,talented, precise

I used to get my hair cut for $45 from a senior stylist who moved so I was forced to look for another stylist. I went to Paul and asked him a bunch of questions the night before. He said he would charge me $60, no first time discounts. He seemed like he understood what I was looking for so I didn't mind paying $60, when he actually charges $55. \r
The day of my cut, he didn't spend more than a minute going over what we had talked about my hair cut. First, I felt very rushed becuase he had to wash my hair and not his assistant. Second, he was extremely distracted because his assistant didn't show up until 10:30 a.m. Third, he wasn't listening to anything I had to say. Fourth, he cut my hair the way HE wanted it, not they way I wanted....when I clearly stated how I specifically wanted my hair cut. Fifth, he was sooo rough with my hair....he kept aiming the blow dryer on my neck and kept burning me, he was pulling at my hair as if my hair did something to him.\r
I got home and washed my hair a couple days later. My hair fell in handfuls, which NEVER happens after a good hair cut. I was blow drying my hair and it was so rough around the edges so I had to finish off with a straightening iron. Once I finished straighening, I found areas where my hair was uneven. I went back to him, he cut the uneven areas and even then he missed an entire area and made my hair even more uneven. \r
My hair falls like nothing I have ever seen. I would like to get my money back if I can. I cry every time I have to do my hair! It's ruined. I don't like ruining people's image but he's ruined mine with my hair cut!

I' ve been bleaching my hair blonde from a box for the past 5 years. Suddenly I felt the need to get back to my roots, so to speak.

I've gone back to brown from blonde several times before....never with any success. It usually turns green for a week before it goes to a redder version of my ash brown original.

This time I decided to go to a color expert that specializes in color correction. Lucky me, I found Paul.

Paul is the salon owner, but he made me feel right at home .He set me right at ease with his incredible European/Austrailian accent as he described in full what he planned to do, and then he got right to work. There must've been over 200 foils in my head, and he blended three different colors together.

The result....a beautiful melange of warm brown, ash blonde and just enough leftover blonde highlights to create depth and movement. It's better than my natural color, and a welcome change from the stark platinum shade I was sporting.

Then came the cut...hellooo, sexy!! He gave me an updated shag that requires little maintenance, but looks great....even on a typical rainy/windy Oregon kind of day. I was impressed with how much time he took to cut each hair until he was completely satisfied.

Bravo, Paul! I came to you for just a color correction, and you gave my hair a new lease on life! I will definitely be back!!

In a word: FABULOUS!

I can't recommend Rachel enough. She's highly creative, professional and has rockin' skills as a colorist. I've really enjoyed having her as my stylist because she actually listens to what I want/need. I ask for an easy, edgy style that works with this curly mop and I walk away with an easy, edgy style that works with this curly mop - no talking me into hours of styling, product and fuss. LOVE THAT!

I have short hair and struggle to find a great stylist who consistently creates a great cut. I have been with Rachel for several years now after going to stylist after stylist. I could never get the right cut or color. The cut would either be bulky or frumpy. The color to bleachy. Rachel is PERFECT. I am a mom, so never want to feel frumpy. She always cuts my hair to fit my style, even when we switch it up a bit. You know a good stylist when you can airdry and it looks cute! She also does amazing color. My hair has highlights that never seem to look obvious when they grow out. AND, she styled my hair when I got married several years back, and does an awesome job with that too! Needless to say, she better never leave Portland!!

Paul is great!!!! I love my haircut! I brought in some photos of haircuts/styles that I wanted to achieve with my hair and asked him what it would take and if it was doable or not. He looked through it and assessed my hair and gave me the perfect haircut to achieve the look I wanted! I never thought I'd be able to get this style with my hair type because I have really thick, heavy hair and the look I was going for was romantic and wispy.

Thanks Paul!!!!

Pros: Professional cutting, listens to your desired look

I came to Blue Chair after an awful experience with a color correction at Bliss (this is when you screw up your own hair trying to be thrifty with home hair color and end up paying twice as much to have a professional fix what inevitably goes wrong.) My home hair color was live-able, just not what I wanted, but the girl at Bliss made it a LOT worse and then refused to fix it.\r
\r
Emily at Blue Chair was willing to take me on and was able to fix the horrible color job I'd gotten at Bliss. I've been back to see her twice since then, and my hair comes back to life a little more with each visit. Between the hair color damage, and my need to be able to wear my naturally very curly hair both curly and straight, Emily's cuts and color somehow manage to make my hair look healthy and low maintenance.\r
\r
I worked at a salon part time through college and have had my hair done by very talented people over the years, and I can easily say Emily is one of the best. She listens and works with you to give you what you want, and isn't afraid to recommend something else if she thinks a different approach would look better. The home hair color / Bliss experience was a disaster, but it all worked out in the end because now I have an awesome stylist!

I was first introduced to Paul Kovacevic's work when he did the hair for all of the models in a fashion show I was in a couple years ago. I've been going to the Blue Chair Salon ever since. Paul is truly passionate and professional about what he does, and it shows. At other salons, I had anxiety before appointments- tearing through magazines, wondering what I should ask for, hoping to find pictures that I could use to communicate to a hairstylist who was ultimately just showing up for the money, not because they love what they do. Not the case any more! I walk in to the Blue Chair Salon, and I walk out with an amazing hair style & color that exceeds what I thought was possible, every time. I secretly think Paul's a 'hair whisperer'. Oh, one more thing that I appreciate- he's focused on your hair, not gossip and drama!

Not the case any more! I walk in to the Blue Chair Salon, and I walk out with an amazing hair style & color that exceeds what I thought was possible, every time. I secretly think Paul's a 'hair whisperer'. Oh, one more thing that I appreciate- he's focused on your hair, not gossip and drama!

Pros: Professional/exceptional hair color & cuts minus the chi-chi drama.

Cons: Parking in the NW area can be tough, give yourself extra time for that.

I want to say thank you Paul for making my hair look so great, you did a great job i highly recommand you to all my friends for the way your treat your customers and how you understand the style they want. After each hair cut my hair feels great thanks to the hair treatments you do it really makes a diffrence about how i feel and look. Once again Paul your the best : )

Pros: great hair cut, service, value

I have been seeing Paul exclusively since I?ve been in Portland, about 4 years, and he has consistently given me cuts and color that exceed my expectations. He?s given me style changes over the years that have the current feel, even with the same length hair. The best part is how long lasting his work is?I?ve gone months between cuts/color and the style has grown out beautifully. I trust Paul 100%. He?s attentive and truly seems to love what he does. Give Paul a try, you won?t be sorry.

I have had excellent cuts and color from Paul ~ but more recently I've also had a really horrible cut. \r
Am debating about whether to return or not at this point. \r
His prices are not all that competitive...and when the cuts are bad, it feels like it's worth looking around for someone that is more consistent.

If you are searching to find a salon that delivers amazing cuts and lovely color in a wonderfully welcoming environment than look no further than Blue Chair Salon. I first found Paul after reading a review on citysearch after a string of less than satisfying experiences at several salons, I did not expect a miracle, all I really wanted was for someone to engage my baby fine hair with a little creativity and to get a proper cut that worked with the texture, fine hair can be a drag. Paul gave me truly one of the best cuts I have ever had, very much in keeping with my Vidal Sasoon stylist on the east coast. Color proved to be a bit tricky with the mess that had been left behind from previous efforts, but we worked together over several visits and have finally arrived at the most luminous shade of platinum blonde, i have never left the salon without getting compliments on the street. I have been very impressed by the work of the other stylists as well, my head has been turned quite a few times by some outstanding work exiting surrounding chairs. I cannot speak highly enough of this salon, do yourself a favor and give them a shot!!!!!

I don't usually post reviews, but I just had to show some love for Paul and the Blue Chair Crew. I have bery hard to manage curly hair, and paul managed to give me the perfect cut for Oregon's rainy climate....no more frizz!! Just a beautiful layered cut that flatters my bone structure and highlights that bring out my eyes. I feel 10 years younger and 10 pounds thinner! Now THAT'S a great STYLIST!! Thanks Paul....I'll definately be back!!!

Pros: Great Salon without Attitude

I moved here from Los Angeles three months ago and began my search for a great hairstylist and color specialist. First I tried Dosha since I used Aveeda products (23rd & Glisan)...very nice space...very pricey (I don't mind paying for a great cut and color believe me.) but the cut & color was mediocre at best.\r
\r
Tried a couple of other places and nothing really made me want to be a regular client. Then I heard about Blue Chair...based on some excellent reviews I made an appt with Paul and let me tell you...all those positive reviews are absolutely true. This guy has the experience, the vision and the artistry...and I got the best cut & color ever! And I have been to some top stylists in LA...and none can touch Paul. The way he cut my hair allows me to style it in a variety of ways. He listens to the client and has a knack for making you look more glamorous than you have a right to be.\r
\r
The color is rich and long lasting, and as my hair grew out over the next 4 weeks I was still able to maintain a great style until my next appointment. Check out the Blue Chair...the staff is awesome, friendly and down to earth. No pretentiousness (so not LA in that regard...) no drama. Just personable proffessionals making people happy and beautiful with their skill and vision. Paul sets the tone for the place, and everytime I step out of his place I feel younger, happier and look 100% better than when I walked in.\r
\r
Thank You Paul...you rock!\r
\r
All in all...those great reviews seem like an understatement now.

I am very picky on who does my hair. I was having one of those ""i hate my hair days"" so I couldnt get into my regular stylist so i did some research on citysearch and called Blue Chair Salon. It was a saturday night and Ward was kind enough to take me in as his last client for the day. I was a little nervous at first because this was a place i have never been to. But i'm a risk taker. The second i walked in the door Ward was so friendly and i felt like i've been going to him for years. He was very understanding and actually sat down next to me and talked about what i wanted done with my hair. He made me feel so comfortable and he does an amazing job at both color and cut! All the stylists in the salon are great too, wonderful personalities. Oh, and ask Ward to sing for you he has a great voice! I will definately be one of Wards new life long clients! Thanks Ward!

The Best in the Northwest! It's great to find a specialist who will listen. He really understands the issues with naturally curly hair. I now have what I call ""MOVIE STAR"" hair. You know...the kind you see walking down the red carpet and wonder...why can't my hair look like that? Well...now it does!! I feel great! Oh yeah...my husband LOVES it too! Yeah! \r

Pros: Great cut!

Ward at Blue Chair Salon gave me a beautiful cut last week. His demeanor is welcoming, warm and generous, and he asks a lot of questions to understand just what I want. I've been to him once previously several months ago, and have remained loyal. He brings a lot of knowlege to the process, and recommended some products without giving me a pushy sell. I felt that he tailored his expertise to give me something unique - something appropriate to my face shape and style, and aligned with my personality and lifestyle. He's an artist on many levels and has an intuitive gift for offering a cut or style that is in harmony with your personality. So rare and so very cool.\r
He creates an atmosphere of delight and humour, and is always down for a laugh. Great Hands! I trust him completely.

Okay, so I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've been basically doing my own haircolor for the last year. It started out innocently.....I just couldn't be fit in by my other stylist.....so I went off to the beauty supply store and bought a cap, some bleach and away i went. The second time, my husband helped, so we both had invested pride in the project.....but I am school teacher, and the school yearbook photos don't lie...... I needed some serious help!!\r
\r
My hair was not only over processed, but also in terrible condition, and in need of a complete color and texture correction....\r
\r
and in comes my night in shining armour:\r
\r
I read the reviews, and learned quickly that Paul was the man for color, and boy were they right.......Paul brought me from bleach blonde to beautiful champagne with undertones of brown that had my husband puff up his chest with pride.\r
\r
I was especially impressed with the before and after photos on Blue Chair Salon's myspace site: myspace-dot-com/bluechairsalon and I couldn't wait to see what Paul could do for me. Not only did he find the perfect color for me, but the cut is fantastic.....I can't stop swinging my hair back and forth!!\r

Thank you Paul, and everyone in the Blue Chair Salon for making my experience par excellence!!

I'm so grateful to all who have added positive comments about Paul.....he really is the best. I came to him with great expectations, and I was not disappointed......i needed a color correction from a high end salon that shall remain nameless.....but Paul was without fear....he took my Ronald McDonald red, and turned it into a beautiful head of incredible bordeaux.......I knew it was the prefect color when I saw my eyes ""pop""...I have green eyes with an amber fleck...and Paul instictinvely put the exact amber flecks in highlights to balance my color......I don't know how he did it.....\r
\r
But the cut is what will keep me coming back for more.....most hairdressers in portland have convinced me to cut my shoulder length hair into a bob, with no layers, and no real style.......Paul took over 45 minutes just perfecting my cut......I couldn't believe how long he was willing to take with me to make sure that evey hair was....precisely cut and perfect.....I walked out with a jaunty layered cut and a perfect color.\r
\r
Paul owns the salon, but you woudn't know it from his easy-going, easy personality....He didn't over-sell me, and his quiet unassuming attitude let me know I was with a pro.\r
\r
Kudos to all in the Blue Chair, especially, Paul!! I'll be back!!

Coming from out of town, it was nice to find someone like Ward to do my hair. He took the time to go over exactly what I wanted and also suggested things that would look good with my face type. Ward was very friendly and talented. The salon is very clean and comfortable. I highly recomend him and the salon.

This was the secound time I came in to have my hair cut by Ward. He gave me an awsome cut for my hair type and I can style it in a lot of different ways, I love it. He also did a treatment on my hair that has made it really shinny and feals great. Ward is a fun and interesting person to talk to. The shop is very comfortable and It's nice to be in the Northwest area where there is a lot of other stuff to do before and after. I highly recommend Ward at the Blue Chair.

Just moved to PDX and destiny sent me to see Ward. The universe is awesome and I left with a hairstyle I am happy with. Ward is very patient and actually takes the time to listen and found out exactly what I wanted. I walked out of there happy to call Portland my new home. After 10 years in Vegas its nice to find someone who can finally cut hair!!! Thanks Ward!!!

Paul really does live up to his reviews.....First of all, I love his accent, but it is his brilliant mind when it comes to hair that I just adore!!\r

He recently took me from dark brown to platinum blonde....many salons turned me away, but Paul was non-phased as he went ahead and brought me up to a beautiul shade that matched my skin tone and made my eyes totally pop!\r
\r
But the cut is what makes this look so incredible....he took his time and I just love to flip my hair from side to side....reminded me of something Jose Eber would do!\r

Paul, thanks for being in Portland.....I can't wait to come back.

Ward talked with me about the haircut I wanted for about 10 minutes, and suggested a great cut that worked well with my hair type and my face. I really felt like I was part of designing my haircut, though I suspect in reality it's 100% Ward - it's clear he has a lot of experience. The result looks chic and is easy to take care of - the perfect combination. I'm going back.

I just made my second appointment with Ward. The first time I went to him was the first time in Portland I have been totally happy with the cut I was given. He listened. He knew how to cut naturally curly hair, which, it seems, throws most hairdressers. I have gotten cuts that looked lifeless and sometimes just plain strange from hairdressers whose own hair was straight or those who were recommended by friends with stick-straight hair. It took me a while to figure out you have to search for someone who's able to work for you and not some higher concept of their own. Ward is the first I've found. And I am 54 years-old.

If you are looking for a chic look without an inflated price.....then Blue Chair is the Place. I came to PAUL just 8 weeks ago, and he fixed my mess of a hairstyle with a perfect cut and color to match my new life! I was looking for a make-over, and boy did I get one.\r
\r
If you love your stagnant out of fasion style, he can do that for you to, but if you trust him enough to let his artistry show through, you won't be disappointed.\r
\r
I was most satisfied when I finished up and paid my bill......I used to pay twice as much for zero style expertise.\r
\r
Thanks to PAUL and everyone at Blue Chair!!

Yay!!! I am so excited that the reviews of Paul were dead on! I went to Paul to cut my shoulder-length hair into a short pixie cut. Paul did a wonderful job and my hair looks great. Even though it's super short, it still looks feminine. My boyfriend thinks it's beautiful too. Paul did a fantastic job. I am so glad I finally found my Portland hairdresser!

I have been trying to replace my Rodeo Drive hairdresser for years in Portland. I have been to every salon listed on citysearch, and I've yet to return to one....until now.....Paul is by far the best colorist and stylist in town. My husband says my hair has never looked better, and he's right. The color compliments my kintone perfectly.....I'm a mousy brown-turned-blonde that often looks ""brassy"" if not processed right....Paul has a unique color system which matches the haircolor to your skintone, eye color, etc....no one else has ever done this for me.\r
\r
The shop is conveniently located in the NW 21st, so although parking is challenging, it is not nearly as bad as the Pearl or 23rd.\r

Thanks, Paul, and to your entire staff at Blue Chair......they were all friendly.....you get a high-end style WITHOUT the high-end ATTITUDE!!
