When we go to a hair stylist, what is it that we want most out of the experience? I do not know about you, but what I want most out of it is the perfect cut and color. For the past five years, Rene Vargas at Friends Salon & Spa, has been giving me just that. Every. Single. Time. Not only does Rene possess the technical skill required for the perfect cut and color, he possesses what most other hair stylists lack: an impeccable sense of aesthetic. And if that was not enough, he possesses one of the warmest and friendliest personalities I have come across. So, if you are still searching for that perfect cut and color, then look no further, because you will find it with Rene!

I had to try Rene when people at work came in looking great - better than usual, but I wasn't sure why - turns out they went to Rene - and the way he cut their hair, it was effortless for them. It fell just right - it was impressive. My hair is different than theirs, but I love the ease, and how nice it is as it grows.. In the past with other stylists, I would be going nuts with a cut within 4 weeks - not so with Rene. He's fun, he makes me laugh - and I love the cut.

I have followed Rene Vargas to every salon he has been at. I have been going to Rene for 15 years. Rene has been flexible to my scheduling needs. Rene give you a big hug when you walk in and when you leave. Rene's versatile styles fit all ages, young and young at heart. I would recommend you have a hair cut experience with Rene.

Cons: none

I started going to Rene about 13 years ago. At that time he was located about 3 blocks from my place of work. Since that time Rene has changed locations several time. I have tried other places to get my hair cut that are closer to home, cheaper, more expensive, etc. But, I keep going back to Rene. Nobody else compares. Rene has seen me through long hair, short hair, thick hair, self colored hair, and now really thin gray hair. I now give Rene freedom to cut my hair as he sees best. I will now follow Rene anywhere in the greater Portland/Vancouver area.

4/14/2010 Have you ever had perfect brows? Not me. Ive been burned, crooked and lopsided. I am pleased to announce I now have perfect brows. Genelle is Friends premier Brow Artist. She is a prefectionist and takes care of me. I now have 3 friends that see her and are as happy as i am. Ive learned you cannot see just a waxer or estethician for brows but need to see a "Brow Artist", cuz there is extensive training in the fashion industry. We all are now excited to see her for all of her other services!

Pros: Friendly, best hair cut

Cons: none what so ever!

I started going to Rene over 4 years ago and LOVE him! It is very hard for me to change hairdressers, manicurists, doctors, dentists, etc....I go to the same ones forever. But, when I switched hairdressers it was the best thing I ever did. Not only is the salon upscale and convenient, I'm getting the best haircut and color I've ever received. I have very fine hair and for the first time, I can just blow my hair dry, put in some product and go. And, my color is so natural that it looks like it could actually be my real color. Great job, Rene!

I went into this salon just to find bosley products. The front desk worker was extremely helpful and informatiive about the product and how I should be using it. I'm in Gresham and don't usually make it out to Happy Valley but it was well worth my time. Can;t speak into haircut but it was very nice salon and very nice people.

I love Roshelle Wimmer's work in color, cut and style! I have known her over 6 years and she has done great work on my hair before I moved out of OR and now that I am back in OR--and even did my hair for my whole wedding party as well!

I am also so proud of her for becoming a trainer!! Nice work Roshelle!

Rene shows you how to use the products step by step, giving you the tools and the knowledge you need at home,to ensure that "Salon Look" everyday...Rene is the one you want to see at Friends Salon.

The owner has no personal, professional or business skills. She has no idea how to operate a business. This place is terribly run. I feel badly for any stylists that have to put up with her. They tell you to ignore previous bad reviews because it's under new ownership.... But even now, the bad reviews start right when you walk in the door. Many people have had bad experiences at the reception desk.....who is at the reception desk??? Chris THE OWNER!!!!!!
BTW Today's date is 5/21/10 for some reason Citysearch has it as 4/17/10

Friend??s Salon has an enjoyable atmosphere and great staff! Whether you are just getting a touch up or you want to look beautiful on your wedding day, Roshelle Wimmer is THE BEST hairstylist in all of Oregon! She is a stylist at Friend??s salon worth mentioning. I have been going to Roshelle for years. If she ever moves away, I don??t know what I will do. I carry her business card in my handbag because I got tired of having to write down her information for people who love my hair. Roshelle cares, she cares about what you want and most importantly she cares about the health of your hair. When I started going to her, my hair was in bad shape. I am a blonde so the bleach took a toll. Roshelle uses products that brought my hair back to life. She did the same thing to my sister??s hair. My sister went to Roshelle with badly damaged hair that was long but thin. Roshelle knew what steps to take to make my sisters hair come back. It took time, don??t get me wrong, but my sisters hair is beautiful now and ladies, it was bad. Another thing that is AWESOME about Roshelle, is that if you want a trim, she literally gives you a trim. She doesn??t cut 2-3 inches off your hair because she THINKS that it is what??s best for you. If you say of an inch, that is what you get. She listens, she??s hair smart and she has an awesome personality. If you want beautiful and healthy hair call Roshelle Wimmer, you will not regret it!

I have been getting my hair done by Roshelle for probably 3 or more years now and I have no idea what I would do without her! Never once have I not been satisfied with everything she does! My hair gets random complements from people everyday, and some people have even claimed I'm their hair inspiration all because of the very talented Mrs. Wimmer!! She has the best ideas and is up to date on every new style! Go to her and you'll never have better hair !!

I'm very particular about my hair. I've been getting my hair cut and highlighted for over 2 years with Amy Lewis. She blows me away every time I sit in her seat. She is consistent in her coloring and listens to me carefully as to what kind of hair cut I would like. The amazing thing is that she makes it happen every time. She is THE Gem in Happy Valley and is located at Friends Salon!!!!
Amy Rocks!

I finally got an apointment with Rene. : ) I have always been told how good he is.But I have heard thist before. So this year, my husband and I were going to the wine & beer show, in Portland, at the convention center,my husband treated me to a hair apointment w/ Renee.

I am writing this, b/c Rene gave me the prettiest,shiniest hair, that I have ever had.
I kept wanting to touch it!
I have fine hair, but alot of it, so usually I end up w/ too much product in my hair and a really stiff styled look.
BUT my hair was not stiff, and moved.
Thank you Rene.I geuss I will be another long distance client.

Dont let the old reviews for this salon scare you away...i have been in there for the last 4 1/2 months and whatever i have read about past services just isnt so. i have my hair cut and color done by several hairdressers and love them both. there are lavish spa services to compliment my visit. my nail tech is great - albeit shes new to the location by about 5 months - but she does the best acrylics in the area. front desk staff goes above and beyond. beats ALL salons in the area.

We've followed Errin from her last shop becaue of how well she treats her customers, makes recommendations after getting to know your style, and overall personality. Every style has been great, her recommendations for products great (shampoo/conditioner/color), and she's just a joy to go see. Highly recommended to all my friends to use her also!

I recently had a cut and color from Errin and was so happy with the results. She made me feel at ease going short with my hair and did an amazing job fixing my last bad cut/color. Errin was extremely professional, however, and did not badmouth my previous stylist. I will not trust anyone else with my hair from now on! If you are checking out Friends Salon for the first time, please ask for Errin. You will not be disappointed!

As for the salon itself, it is a very clean, professional, and classy environment. I felt totally at ease and taken care of the whole time.

Living in the area, I thought it would be a good local salon. I gave it about three tries and had to go to another hairdresser to have my hair re-cut. Terrible skills (or at least the hair dresser I saw). Would NOT recommend this salon.

I have come in twice to Friends Salon and Spa. Errin did such an excellent job cutting my hair and gave me a consultation on color. I had wanted to go darker and was nervous about the results. She helped me find a color that would work for me and I really love how it turned out. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at the salon and will be headed back soon.

I went to this salon based on the referrals of several friends. I absolutely loved everything about it. They do hair, nails and waxing. I was greeted by a team of really happy people...not easily found in many work places. There was positivity and smiles all around. You could tell they all love to work there! I loved my hair cut and can't wait to go back to get my acrylic nails done. If you are looking for a new salon they have many stylists and services to choose from. This one is a MUST!

I even had my hair cut UNEVENLY!!! the price is way TOO MUCH for the type of work they do!! The girl that cut my hiar was very proffessional and nice, but is NOT the best with cutting hair!!! I would recommend you go some place else!!

Tried going there because it was so close to home. I gave it several tries. Staff is rude and looked down their nose at me just because I didn't look made-up like everyone else, job was sub-par and they were trying to pressure me into buying products from them. I had to leave at my first appointment because they forgot about me--I sat there any waited over half an hour, didn't see my girl anywhere and no one bothered to ask me if I needed help, just walked right by me every time I tried to speak with someone. Go to Urban Colorz close by, you will be treated with much more respect.

I came in to have a fill on my nails for the first time, since I couldn't get in to my regular girl. I knew they would do a good job, since it is a really nice place. However, I was in for quite a surprise.
The girl who did my nails was very friendly, but unorganized. I was hopeful, when she said she'd been doing nails for 7 years. She told me she was using a brand she liked, but her boss required her to use the kind with no odor, which was harder to work with. She wasn't kidding! The product was like elmers glue, and turned out lumpy on my nails. She wanted to put tips on my broken nails, and I told her I was used to forms. She said she hadn't used forms in a while, but would try.
She did NOT know how to use them, and instead of having nice square tips, I ended up with lumpy rounded edges. None of my nails match, some are lopsided, some are short, some longer, and after 2 days, 2 have fallen off, and 2 are lifting. I paid $40 to have my nails done, which is $5 more than I usually pay for a back-fill. I will NEVER go back, and have scheduled another fill with my girl after only 5 days.
What a waste of money.

The girl who did my nails was very friendly, but unorganized. I was hopeful, when she said she'd been doing nails for 7 years. She told me she was using a brand she liked, but her boss required her to use the kind with no odor, which was harder to work with. She wasn't kidding! The product was like elmers glue, and turned out lumpy on my nails. She wanted to put tips on my broken nails, and I told her I was used to forms. She said she hadn't used forms in a while, but would try.
She did NOT know how to use them, and instead of having nice square tips, I ended up with lumpy rounded edges. None of my nails match, some are lopsided, some are short, some longer, and after 2 days, 2 have fallen off, and 2 are lifting. I paid $40 to have my nails done, which is $5 more than I usually pay for a back-fill. I will NEVER go back, and have scheduled another fill with my girl after only 5 days.
What a waste of money.

Pros: Clean, friendly

Cons: was not happy with performance

I cannot believe I paid $45 for a FILL at this place!!!!! It's my fault for not asking the price before I sat in the chair. It has only been four days and already my nail color is chipping near the cuticle!!!!!

Ok, so Last Minute i just had to get my hair done, ---finally! I always put this sort of stuff off, and this time I waited just too long........my old stylist had just changed careers!!!! I was frantic! I called a girlfriend of mine who recommended Ashley at Friends in Happy Valley. I took the chance. ( I really needed to get my hair done, it was way way too old, I know you know the look! ) And what the heck other choice did I really have???? I contacted Ashley, and told her my dilemma. Unfortunately Ashley was headed out on Vacation at the end of the week, AND she was totally booked! I was like, ok, well after 4th of July is fine. (I really wanted to have the new 'do for the holiday. Go patriotism!) She actually offered to come in on her day off. I pretended to resist, she genuinely instisted. Oh am I glad! Ashley did such a wonderful job of coloring my hair! I had a complicated idea I wanted, and some pretty wild expectations in color & style. She did an excellent job of getting it just right! She matched the color to suit my complexion PERFECTLY! And she did a great job of keeping the shape of my hair cut, with out cutting too much. Throughout the whole process she was super friendly and professional. She went out of her way to make me feel welcome and comfortable. She asked a lot of questions to be sure she understood what I was expecting (hoping, praying fervently, etc). Oh Boy! Did she deliver! I left looking and feeling great. Now, it's two days later, my hair still looks and feels great! The Bonus: I haven't lost any color to fading even after shampooing twice! (very uncommon with the primary color pigments). Thank you so much Ashley! I hope you enjoy your Vacation at least half as much as I enjoyed my time 'in the chair'!

Pros: Lovely location, great service, beer & wine while you 'do

Cons: NONE!

I went in on my birthday for a pedicure, and it was the worst experience. The front desk staff came across as really phony nice (bordering on rude), the pedicure chairs are extremely uncomfortable - and it took forever. Not because it was a nice, relaxing pedicure that made me feel pampered, the woman was just slow. (Although she was nice).

And on top of it all, it was $58! I couldn't believe it when they told me - I expected the standard $20-30 pedicure, which anywhere else would've been so much better.

I have been going to Rene at Friend's Salon for almost 10 years. He was the first stylist that could figure out my wild hair and how to deal with it. The result has been a consistently great cut even when I asked to change styles. I found Rene way back when he still worked in NW Portland and haved since followed him all the way out to Happy Valley, even though it is now a 30 minute drive for me to get there. My wife, who gets her hair colored, goes to Rene as well and couldn't be happier. We love Rene. He is such an awesome hair stylist and a super nice guy. If you are a lady who dreads getting their haircut or is always disappointed in the outcome, i.e. color, style, etc., you ought to go to Rene because that is not a worry that you need to live with. If you're a guy who thinks "oh, you're always two weeks away from a good haircut", go to Rene! ...and then think again!

I have been going to Rene for hair services for 6+ years and have followed him from 2 different salons to his current one at Friends. The salon is trendy and upscale with a very relaxing atmosphere. I am always greeted by the staff and asked if I would like something to drink. I love the first class treatment I get when I am there!

When it comes to my hair, I am the pickiest person on the planet! I want someone who is knowlegeable about the current fashion trends yet can be creative enough to make me "Unique" from the rest of the newest do's out there. Rene is an incredibly gifted "Artist" when it comes to hair and I feel so lucky to have someone who should be working in "Hollywood," doing my hair. You would not believe the amount of people who have asked me where I get my hair done, many of them have gone to him and really love the work he does. I even have a neice who drives all the way from Seattle to have her hair done by Rene.

I have NEVER walked out of his salon with a bad haircut or color! You figure the math, average 6 yrs @ 4x's a year..... that's 24 cut/colors! I consider myself pretty trendy with concern to style, so he has gone on the journey with me to re-create myself over and over.....short, med, long styles....and many different hues, blonde w/red highlights, blonde w/dark undertones, etc... I am naturally a dishwater blonde, which I hate, but as long as I have Rene doing my hair, no one will ever know.

My husband loves it when I get my hair done, 'cause he knows he will have a new woman when I get home!

I truly can't beleive another comment posted here by another patron of Rene's.... I have to reiterate the fact that I have been going to him for over 6 years as well as many of my friends...and I have heard not 1, nadda, nil complaint about his work!

All I and my friends can do, is "GUSH" about our "Hollywood" hair dresser!

I had a great experience at Friends Salon. The staff was friendly and very professional. I received wonderful customer service. Amy did a fantastic job on my cut and color! She also had good advice to treat my damaged hair. I would definately recommend this salon to others.

I am new in town so I thought I would go check out friends salon. When I came in no one greeted me, no one offered me anything to drink, I was just ignored. After about 2o mins late for my appt, Renea finally came and get me. He fried my hair off and then told me we had to cut 5 inches off my hair for it to be healthy. I was so upset with my hair he had the nerve to ask me to pay for my hair. I paid 160.oo for my hair to fall out and I cant use a hair dyrer or my hair will break off. So if you want the worst service and the worst stylist ever go see Renea at Friends salon.

I really wanted to say nice things about this salon but I just can't ... 1) in regards to colour: a) my colour came out horribly brassy b) it didn't cover my gray c) the application was spotty and uneven 2) in regards to cut: horrible. horrible, horrible, horrible. my hair was literally cut completely uneven, with a difference of about two inches. 3) service: so-so. My stylist was nice but the salon manger was rather aloof and rude. He also verbally disciplined my stylist for not displaying their products properly, right in front of me, which made me very uncomfortable and I found to be in very poor form 4) For a new salon they are not doing very well.
