I've had April do my hair on and off over the last 20 years- wow! She is always interested in my needs and when I leave I feel great. My hair is curly and she always does wonders with it. I get lots of compliments and will return again. I am a hairdresser also, so I am hard to please and she fits the bill every time.
thanks April- you rock!!!!!

Pros: stylist Listens, offers advice, keeps style and color curren

Cons: zero

I won a makeover and was very excited as it would be nice to try something new. The stylist found a picture of a cute style to try and showed me a color that also looked like a nice brown with subtle auburn under-tones. Had my hair turned out like the picture and like the color sample I would not be writing this. But, when I got home my 5 year old said, "Mommy, I liked your hair the other way. I wish you hadn't gone there. All of you looks very pretty except your head!" You see, my hair turned out fire engine red and the cut was an uneven mess. Also, my scalp burned from the color solution. As requested I emailed the stylist right away to let her know the family consensus. She contacted me the next morning and said another stylist would contact me to work things out. There was nothing that could be done for the cut, but I had really hoped they would fix the color. I did receive a call and the stylist sounded very friendly but she said she would have to charge almost full price to fix the problems. Whether the original work was done for free or for a fee, I would have thought a salon would stand behind their work and offer to fix it gratis. I was so disappointed. My husband did not want me to go back so I got it fixed elsewhere. I will not go back or recommend Salon au Rouge. Cute salon, friendly people, but no satisfaction guaranteed.

Chicgurl needs to grow up and get over themselfs. They are the only person who did not like the salon. I have been here about a zillion times and and each time I go I fall in love with it more and more. I know the owners and asked them about Chicgurls reviews they didnt go into details but they told me that basically the person wanted to dye their hair from really dark to really blonde. The stylist recomended against it but they would not listen. Obviously it turned out bad and now this chick is writting bad reviews left and right. Hey Chicgurl your being really immature, it was your own fault!

I am 62 years old and have been going to hair stylists for years. This is the first time I have ever found someone who actually listens to ME about how I want my hair. I love what she does with my hair. She takes what I want and makes it better. I drive all the way from Wilsonville to get my hair styled with Abbie. It is so worth the drive!!

April has been cutting and coloring my hair for at least 12 years. She listens to my ideas and often has many good suggestions for me, too. She knows what will work, and I totally trust her judgment. Eden has also cut my hair and has done an excellent job. I have received other services like waxing and pedicures, and I have never been disappointed.

I would highly recommend April and this salon to anyone.

My hairstylist moved out of state so I needed someone new. I needed a change with my hair and it was my first visit. I was nervous so I brought my closest girlfriends along. They were TOTALLY accomodating to my friends and my list of what I did and didn't want with my hair. They took it all in and came up with some ideas and made sure I was ok with it. I don't do change well and this was big and I LOVE my hair!! I am so thrilled to find a new place and already have friends that want to switch too!

My experience at Salon au Rouge was excellent. While waiting for my stylist (Abbie), everyone working was extremely courteous and friendly even though I had never met most of them. The shop is quaint and very cute and a great location. Abbie has been doing my hair for over two years and is the absolute best!!! She always makes sure you are ready for any style or color changes and won't do anything that she thinks may harm your hair. She also styled all of the bridesmaids and maid of honor at my daughter's wedding recently. She knows what will look good on certain people and I absolutely respect her opinion. I will never go anywhere else!!! Thanks Abbie.

I recently learned about Salon au Rouge from my sister. It came highly recommended and I had a wonderful experience today. I wanted something fun and fresh for fall and got exactly that. I now have the most beautiful espresso brown color with copper highlights and a very "sassy" new cut! It is soft, shiny and looks healthier than it has in years. I was treated very well and received great service for a reasonable price. I have extremely thick hair and have not been able to find a stylist who can texturize and thin my hair while keeping it blended and stylish. Abbie was my stylist today and she was not afraid to give her professional opinion on both style and color. It is absolutely perfect and I could not be happier. I will definitely be back. Thank you Abbie!!!!

Last week I went to go get an essential manicure with Stephanie, and it was fantastic! The eye catching red nail polish she helped me choose caught many eyes at the Phantom of the Opera play I went to that evening! I didn't even recognize my own nails after they were made up! Stephanie is an amazing nail technician who I will MOST DEFINITELY continue to go to. My experience with Stephanie at Salon Au Rouge was very relaxing, as well as a lot of fun; her personality was a joy to be around.

Thanks Salon Au Rouge!!

I have never experienced anything that the previous person is complaining about. April is my regular stylist, since the conception of the salon. When April is not available, I would only trust ABBIE to color and/or cut my hair. When I first started going to the salon, my hair was very damaged from over the counter hair coloring and having my hair straightened chemically. They advised me not to use permanent hair color, but instead brighten my hair up with semi-permanent color. Their advised was a God send, my hair now is no longer damaged and the color maintenence is about every 2 months. They would have done permanent color if I had really wanted it, but instead they made me realize that I had been damaging my own hair, ALL BY MYSELF. It makes me wonder what the previous person had been doing to her hair before she walked into the salon, and what demands were made, even though I am sure she was advised against it. The brush thing actually makes sense to me. Most people realized that if you have damaged hair anything with tight bristle's will damage or break the hair even more. You need to use a wide tooth comb, or a hair brush with single bristle's all in a row. I have never been treated unfairly or had shoddy work done on my hair, eyebrows and with my pedicures. This is a wonderful place that puts the client first, ALWAYS.

Cons: HAIR ON FIRE/ BUTCHER HAIR JOBS

Salon au Rouge although a relatively new salon, is not light on experience or customer service. I've been using April for 8 years now. I have the most difficult fine, whispy, easily damaged hair to work with. She has colored and cut my hair and taken me through some wonderful transitions through the years. I was recently in and received the inspiration to take "my bob" up a notch. I'm loving it. I've used a couple of the other stylists as well, when I hadn't booked an appointment in time to get April when needed. I've been happy with each stylist and thankful they carefully listened to my needs and worked to get me the cut I desired. I've watched April build this Salon from the ground up and carefully staff with the "right talent".
So, April, I just wanted to say... your great! I'm happry to call you my stylist and friend.

I won a free makeover on the FISH radio station and even though I wasn't paying for the service they treated me with great respect. I allowed them to use thier vision and do as they wished. If you lok on their website you can see the before and after photos. I love the cut, the color is amazing (Darker thean I have ever ventured) and they even showed me (a novice) how to correctly apply my makeup to make it look natural. It was a wonderful experience and their shop is so cute and you instantly relax when you walk in.

I'd never had a manicure before, but with my newly restyled engagement ring on my finger, it was time to indulge. I booked the Spa Manicure with Stephanie and she was incredible! She was very personable and did a beautiful job on my French tips. She used a soft white (instead of bright white) and super pale pink polish. My nails look exactly as I had imagined; very natural and classy. Stephanie takes great pride in her work and it shows.

After reading the great reviews on CitySearch, I decided to try Salon au Rouge. I scheduled an appointment with Erin and she was awesome! She listened to the issues I was having with my hair that had become too blonde and too razored from a different salon. It wasn't working for my hair type anymore and she was easily able to fix it. She took her time, always made sure I was comfortable and was a lot of fun! They were able to get me in same day and had a very nice, relaxing environment. I have found my new stylist and I will be back to see Erin for sure!! Thank you!

I walked in the door's of salon au rouge last week upon a referal for caitlyn by one of my good friend's. I LOVED the salon and I was treated so well, Caitlyn was so nice, and she really listened to what I wanted to do with my hair. I was so impressed with the staff at Salon au rouge, people kept asking if I wanted more coffee, water etc. I am for sure coming back to Caitlyn, she has a new client!

Salon au Rouge is the cutest little salon, and the customer service is outstanding! The decor is beautiful, and is so much more inviting than any of the large salon chains. I had Erin cut my hair and she was AMAZING. I think that on their website it says that she is their newest stylist, but don't let that throw you! She listens to every word you say, and is so sweet and easy to talk to. She managed to give me the perfect cut, and made sure that I liked everything she was doing along the way. She never tried to push any products, but also let me know what she was putting in my hair. The parking lot is rather small, but there is a ton of surrounding parking. Also, the salon is extremely easy to find! You won't be disappointed if you visit Erin at Salon au Rouge!

I'm a bit overdue to say to the world that Stephanie is Queen of Natural Nails! I have been indulging in her pedicures now for about a year, and my toes have never been happier. I love Stephanie's personality, cheerfulness and detailed work. I have also been meeting her for manicures and always leave feeling ready to face life again! Cheers to Stephanie!

I have been getting my hair cut & colored by Mendy for over 2 1/2 years now and I've never looked cuter! She always does a FANTASTIC job in not only keeping my hair in good shape, she gives great tips on keeping it in great health between visits. She also takes the time to know who I am and what my preferences are so that when I get a wild hair and want to do something drastic that she knows I'll regret, she can help me make a better choice. It took me long time to find Mendy, but now that I have, I'm never letting her go. Aside from being fantastic with my hair, she is also really fun to spend time with. I look forward to my appointments because I know that we'll have fun conversation and it will be a great time.

She also cuts both my boys hair and they LOVE her...they sit still for her and feel like it's a treat to get time with her. I HIGHLY recommend making an appointment with Mendy. She rocks!

I haven't been able to find a great place to get my hair done in almost 3 years. I read the reviews posted here and decided to give 'em a try. I had Eden cut and color my hair and I haven't been happier. I've been referring to her like crazy! I love this place!

I found Mendy and Salon au Rouge on craigslist last year, and the first time I walked in the door, I knew I had found a gem of a salon. The owner and the women who work there are friendly and funny, and each of my visits has been enjoyable and relaxing. The decor, "Parisian loft" is chic yet relaxed and welcoming.
Mendy is my hairstylist, and I freakin' LOVE her! By far, the best cut/color I've had in my life, and I'm 38 so I've had plenty, and hands down she's the best. And affordable, too! I am moving to Seattle in a couple of weeks, and I am heartbroken that I've finally found the hairstylist for me....in Portland! I am seriously considering making the drive just for the cut and color from Mendy, that's how good she is. Finding a stylist who makes you look great, and is a pleasure to converse with, that's priceless. I can't say enough good things!

I got my hair cut, colored, and permed at Salon au Rouge by Mendy and it was a great experience. Mendy is so nice and fun to talk to. She kept me entertained the whole time and did a wonderful job with my hair. She put red streaks in my hair without making it look too flashy or tacky. I also took my daughter in for her first hair cut. My daughter seemed nervous at first but Mendy was very nice and quick. I can't believe how stylish my daughter's hair looks. I definately recommend going here and I definately recommend Mendy. Her pricing is also very reasonable and worth every penny.

My daughter, Blaire, and I started having Shena cut our hair 3+ years ago, when she was at Beauty First in Beaverton. One day, she told me she was moving to Salon au Rouge... Salon au where? About a month later, I set an appointment with her, and have never looked back! Not only is Shena a wonderful hair care specialist ( recommend her highly), but the Salon is darling. Not sterile like so many big chain salons. It's comfortable, cozy, artistic, with a backdrop view out back of lush greenery. The staff is always so friendly, and you feel completely at home there. Not to mention, ladies, the cute little jewelry and novelty gift entry area...with a cute collection of jewelry and accessories... who can't resist a little shopping in your favorite salon! I recommend Salon au Rouge for a truly unique pampering experience!

I responded to a craigslist ad that Mendy posted a few months ago and have been to Mendy twice since then and I have a third appt scheduled for later this month. Mendy is great! She's honest, experienced, and makes good recommendations to me.

I would highly recommend Mendy Wright at Salon Au Rouge. Plus, the salon has great ambience and everyone is very friendly, fun, and sweet.

After recently moving to the area, finding a hairstylist can be very hard for some people, after finding Mendy its safe to say that I will be seeing her for a long time. She is very flexible to get me in as soon as possible and is always willing to work around my schedule. She tells me an honest opinion about the ideas I have with color and cut, and gives me tips how I can maintain my new look! Not to mention very quick and very presise with what I am looking for. If you need a new stylist, call her : )

I just got the cutest haircut. I felt that my stylist listened to what I wanted and gave me the exact cut I asked for. I love the decor and feel of the salon I will definitely be back!

Thanks April I love my hair

best pedicure in town

Stephanie at Salon au Rouge gave me the most wonderful pedicure I have ever had! The foot bath that she uses made me feel comfortable about not getting any type of infection. She had a large selection of polishes and massage lotions to choose from. The foot and leg massage was done with a warm wax and was to die for. Pedicures are one of the only things I do to spoil my self and this one took the cake!

Thanks Stephanie your the best!

I just got my hair cut with Mendy Wright at Salon au Rouge. She was able to help me find the right cut for my face and body style. I looked younger and thinner. The salon was fun and a great place to be in. I look forward to many more appointments with Mendy.

This salon was wonderful. It is absolutely charming on the inside. Bright colors, fun decor and comfortable waiting area and salon chairs. Erin did a color and cut for me and it was exactly what I wanted. Fresh and flirty, but easy to do on my own. I went from Brunette to blond and the highlights are natural and the colors are perfect. Then on top of getting my hair done I enjoyed an eyebrow was from Erin, also wonderful and a terrific pedicure from Stephanie. They were also there quite late in the evening, which was great for my schedule. Everyone was so friendly and inviting there. I would recommend this salon to anyone. Thanks everyone at Salon au Rouge!!!!

Salon au Rouge is a wonderful full service salon. Erin did an amazing job on my highlights and cut. It is nice to have a stylist who knows what she is talking about and can give good suggestions. I got a very nice manicure from Stephanie and a wonderful facial from Leah. The whole salon is fun, and filled with professionals. The owners, April, is very knowledgeable about products, cuts, and styles. You can not go wrong at this Spa. It is a must try if you are looking for a new place (or even if you are not).

Definately recommend going even if it a bit of a drive. Mendy cut, colored and highlighted my hair. She was very attentive and took the time to get to know what I was looking for and gave me exactly what I wanted in a hairstyle! She is a gal with a huge heart. She also carries the EUFORA product line; LOVE IT! I am bringing a friend who is going through cancer treatment there next week for a new short style. Mendy scheduled in for extra time to devote to her. I am definately going back.

I went in for a Monday Makeover that I had won on the fish station. It was awesome. I never expected all they did. The staff was great and very friendly. They just pampered you to the max. Always asking if you need a drink of water,coffee, tea. Any magazines. They picked out great colors that brought out the best in me. My husband didn't really recognise me. My co workers notice a difference on Monday and was amazed. I would recommend this salon to others. Thank you to Erin and Holly for the great hair cut and color. My kids at the day care are going to be surprised.

Oh my gosh! This was the best experience I've ever had in a salon. Mendy did my hair and the new cut and gorgeous color was so awesome! I would recommend her to anyone.

I am pretty new to the area and had no idea where to go for a haircut and most important a color. I found an ad on craigslist and they had a website (so important). I went to their website and the salon looked very nice and tasteful. I also came here to CitySearch to see if there were any reviews on them. All positive reviews so I called them to see about a consultation and possible color. They were able to accomodate me the next day. I was supposed to have someone else meet with me but she had to cancel so Sherri met with me and she was so pleasant. She complimented me on my hair and told me she would be able to meet my needs. The color came out perfect. I love it. I would highly recommend you try this place if you have no idea where to go. A very clean and quaint place. I will definitely go back. Thanks Sherri

I've had manicures before - but Stephanie is friendly, and warm. She makes the experience comfortable and relaxing. Her special lotions are wonderful smelling and seasonal and make the session even more special. My daughter and I had a great time! Stephanie is the only manicurist at the salon and has her own little space tucked in back, so it's very quiet and pleasant.

April cut my hair. She did such a good job. We talked prior to the cut about what my ideas were and what her vision is. I like the way it can be worn straight or curly as I have curly hair. April also does great make-up. She knows skin tones and is great at working with the skin and clothing choices. Highly recommended.

I love this place - especially Eden Baxter and owner, April Eastman. So personable and knowledgeable about hair, style, and color. They listen to you and are great at giving you exactly what you want - even if you have a hard time explaining it! I've also had the opportunity to meet others who work at the salon and am impressed with the intimate and friendly atmosphere. In fact, I recommended that my niece go there for her bridal make-up and styling. My niece looked beautiful...and more importantly FELT beautiful...on her wedding day. What bride wouldn't want that?! I highly recommend Salon au Rouge!

My mother and I went in for make-overs and did not expect the level of service we received. Friendly staff, cozy environment and every service you could think of wanting at a salon. All of the ladies at Salon au Rouge were a pleasure to work with; they listened to everything we wanted to do for our look and offered a variety of helpful ideas to help us decide what hairstyles and colors would look best on us. Not only did I get the best haircut and style I've ever had, but the staff also gave me a few good ideas and tips on how to style my hair differently with the new cut that I wasn't used to styling myself! I feel that their professionalism and experience are unrivaled in the Portland area. Never did they pressure us into buying services we did not want or need and they were extremely good at tailoring their salon services to our needs. I would reccommend Salon au Rouge to any of my friends and family.

I had the best time at Salon au Rouge and the results are fabulous! (check out the makeover photos on their web page) Leah gave me a new cut that is incredible. April put the perfect color and highlights in my hair and Eden did an amazing job on my makeup. I left feeling not only 10 years younger, but also uplifted and excited about my new look. The entire staff was really great and they have amazing skills. They took me from frumpy to gorgeous in one sublime afternoon. I was so pampered. They have a great location, delicious coffee, and a the atmosphere is the perfect blend of elegance and relaxation. If you are looking for a salon that has it all and does it all you have to try Salon au Rouge. It is a little piece of heaven on earth!

So glad to have found this salon! It meets my almost every need! (Infact, I didn't even know of some I was missing out on!) This is so cool! Not only do I love my hair 24/7 but I now look forward to my next visit expectantly because I know it will be a fantastic up -lift to me all-around and that's from a hair salon! YES!! It's a great package deal for me (my time well spent, reasonable cost, excellent results for my hair, confidence that it will happen again, shopping possibilities, other pamperings available, just so many wonderful positive happenings!!!! like super friendly people, good magazines, endless lemoned-water, talk, talk, talk, listen,listen,listen - fun! Anyway, I went in first for my hair and then my folow-up visits were to maintain the really agreeable look/feel/experience my hair had taken on. Then there was my whole enjoyment of the whole salon thing! I would not ever want to admit any momoents that are 'all about' me' but I am so happy to have finally found this place that lets me have my own 'worthy' indulgence and not feel guilty about it! - remember we're talking HAIR here! It is my special treat I do for myself and will continue to do every 6 weeks! I know it's most likely all the attention I get while at SalonauRouge that keeps me coming back and it's all a pleasant thing! I feel safe about this relationship and hope to keep it always! I'm only sorry that it took me all these years to get here!

April Eastman is the queen of color. How she can take a head of tired, overworked, stressed out hair and turn it into luxurious, shiny, and the most flattering color ever in such a short span of time is beyond me! I consider each trip to this salon a retreat - a gift I give myself. Each stylist gives 100% and you leave feeling thankful to have been fortunate enough to find this wonderful place!
