I have been to Ritual about 10 times. I tried it from the high reviews in Citysearch and asked for Venus because of all her rave reviews. Venus was fantastic but left the salon. So I tried several other stylists who were ok, but nothing

I was completely dissatisfied by my experience at this salon. Upon arriving 10 minutes early, my stylist eventually came in looking disheveled and a few minutes late. He consulted me and we went back and forth for about 10-15 minutes with what to do w/my hair. He then proceeded to give me a partial weave... Which took 2 1/2 hours. This seemed unacceptable to me as I used my lunch break to get my hair done (My lunch break lasts for an hour and a half). Anyway, once he was finished waiting for the color he washed my hair literally pulling as he tried to run his fingers through unshampooed and conditioned hair. I finally told him to hurry up because I needed to get back to work and didn't let him finish drying my hair. When I got back to work, my friends told me that it was much darker (completely opposite of what I was going for). I spent over $90 to get a partial weave done and was in the salon for 3 hours. It just seemed to me that he was completely inexperienced at his job and I had to find another salon to do the color correction. When I called to talk to the manager, she told me she couldn't refund my money and was really passive about my experience w/her employee. She said she would look into it and hasn't called me back- 3 days later. All in all, I would say this is probably one of the worst hair experiences I have ever had and would advise anyone contemplating this salon to search elsewhere. For the time and money spent- it was definitely NOT worth it.

I'm not sure how they've received the Best Of awards over the past few years as my hair experience with them has got to be one of the worst I've ever had. I've read a lot of a stylist by the name of Kim who doesn't seem to be employed

I'm so glad that someone found Kim. When I first went to Ritual I was scared. Kim made my experience there fun and I kept returning because i loved the way she did my hair. When I went back for an appointment that I had scheduled I was told that she was no longer there and got my hair done by another stylist.
She did an ok job but it was not as good as Kim would have done. The last time I went there I felt like I was just a DOLLAR sign because of the treatment I got.
It was the day of Valentines and I got the most awful service that day and I had plans that night.
I have made my appointment with Kim at her new place and i can't wait to see her.

I had my hair cut by Javaise. Her level of professionalism was extrordinary, never once did I feel worried that she would mess up my hair. She made it seem as though we were just hanging out having fun! I can tell she truly LOVES her job! When she was finished with my hair, it was more like she had created art. I am so pleased with the hair cut and color that it boosts my mood everytime I look in the mirror, and it actually makes doing my hair in the morning more fun. The salon was sooooo clean and well put together. All the girls working there are so friendly and welcoming! I recommend Ritual Hair Design to everyone. I am truly amazed.

I found Ritual on this website after my hairdresser moved away. I was very happy with my hair and thought everyone there was very nice. When I went back to work I had two people tell me my hair looked great, which hasn't happened for a while. I also love the hairspray that was recommended. Thanks, Shawn! I'll be back!

I have gone to Ritual as well and Kim was my stylist. She was awesome and the only person I trusted to do my A-line. I went back since she left to have my hair done, and the style didn't come out anywhere close to how Kim would do it. If anyone knows what salon she left to, please post!

I went to Kim religiously, and she was incredible. I went in for my regular hair cut recently, and she no longer worked there! I wish I knew where she moved to because I would follow her. Now I'm lost trying to find someone as good as her again, and that's going to be hard to do.

I went to Ritual for a couple of years. In the beginning, they were great (although very expensive). Towards the end, I was made to wait for pretty much every appointment (while, yes, my stylist and others in the salon sat around and talked). Several times, the tension was pretty thick and I got the impression the people who worked there did not like each other. The last few times, I did not get the cut I expected. On my last visit, the cut was so horrible I felt I needed to have it fixed immediately, yet when I called, I was told by the receptionist that my stylist did not have any available appointments for several days. Not only was there no apology, I got the definite feeling they were not interested in fixing my haircut at all. I ended up going somewhere else to get it fixed, and I'm still going there today (in addition to referring about 6 of my friends to the new salon).

It seemed as though the quality of my haircut each visit had a lot to do with my stylist's mood that day and what was going on in her personal life. Everyone has problems outside of work, but I don't think it should affect the quality of the job they perform.

I think Ritual has the ability to be a great salon and my stylist was very talented. I just can't afford to spend that kind of money without knowing for certain that the results will be perfect every time. I'm now paying about 1/3 the amount they charge for color and cut with perfect results each time.

UPDATE: When Kim moved, I received a call the day before my appointment informing me of this fact and telling me they rescheduled me with someone else. I was not happy that I didn't find this out until right before my appointment. Needless to say, I didn't go back. I did find Kim and continue to see her regularly! :)
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
I called Ritual after trying 2 other salons in the area and not having the best experience. I called and the friendly receptionist got me an appointment the next day with Kim. I got there and was offered something to drink while I waited. Filled out a little paperwork and then Kim came over to greet me. We sat and talked about what I wanted. I was going for a pretty drastic change, but had no idea what I wanted. She played with my hair a bit and came up with a great idea. We did the wash and cut, and I was AMAZED with the results. Ive always had long hair, so I was going much shorter. She made me so comfortable and kept me talking the whole time. I will definetly be going back in a few weeks for a cut and color. A great experience and everyone at this salon is amazing!

I went in for an inverted bob cut after reading such great things about Ritual on Citysearch. First of all, the receptionist was extremely pleasant both when I called and when I arrived--something you don't often find in salons. I was about 15 minutes early for my appointment (the receptionist offered me some water or tea), and my stylist, Kim, came out of the back within 5 minutes of my arrival and took me over to the chair. She talked to me for a few minutes about what I wanted and asked lots of questions so she was sure I got what I wanted. As she began cutting my hair, she continued to clarify and check in with me to see if I wanted her to make any changes. She took a lot of time to give me what I really wanted, and did not become offended when I asked her to change a few small details. Throughout the cut she was very personable...none of that awkward silence you get with a lot of stylists. All in all, it was a great experience, and I will definitely be back!

Don't worry about getting your hair cut or colored by Venis at Ritual Hair Design because you don't have to be. You can be confident that it will come out amazing because she knows what she's doing. Even if you're not sure what you want, you can sort of describe it to her and she just knows what you're talking about and does it and it looks beautiful. And she's very confident when she's doing your hair so you don't get that uneasy feeling in your stomach halfway through the hair cut or color. She even cuts my 13 year old son's hair and he wants it to look like he barely got it cut but she always does it perfect....and 13 year olds aren't that easy to please. Definitely go and get your hair done at Ritual Hair Design, you will be HAPPY!

I had the pleasure of visiting Ritual Hair Design for the first time this past week for hair coloring and cut, and eyebrow waxing services. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone trying to find a new ?home? for your salon needs. Having just recently moved to Oregon, leaving behind my previous hair stylist of 5 years, I was a bit nervous when I walked in and wasn?t sure what to expect. Finding a new salon that you can trust for great service can be just as challenging as finding a new doctor or daycare for your children. I was pleasantly surprised to find it to be a warm and inviting place with excellent customer service. Shawn took great care of me with my waxing service, and Kim did an outstanding job with both my hair color and cut. And it wasn?t just the great quality I was impressed with. Kim took the time to make sure my color was done right and the care to ensure I got the hair style I wanted. And she did this all while ensuring that any new customers that entered the door were also taken care of as well. Contrary to any Debbie Downer reviews, I was thoroughly pleased with the results, the cost, and my overall salon experience. I absolutely love my hair color and cut, and will be returning again to this salon. Ritual Hair Design is definitely one of Hillsboro?s hidden treasures!

I had an amazing experience at Ritual. My hairstylist, Dee, did a wonderful job on my haircut and highlights. She put in a great effort to make sure the colors we choose were right for my skin tone as well as my facial features. She was able to follow my instructions with remarkable precision and produce excellent results. Furthermore, she made me feel very comfortable; the salon, itself, has a welcoming atmosphere with a friendly staff. I have received an enormous amount of compliments for my hair and it was all thanks to Dee and the salon.

Because of all the glowing reviews, I decided to take a chance and book an appointment at this salon. For a cut and color, I was quoted a fee of $140 over the phone. Although I thought this was a bit spendy, I figured it might be worth it. To my utter dismay, I was actually charged $180. To make matters worse, despite giving the stylist explicit instructions on how I wanted my hair cut, the results were nowhere near what I?d asked for. Where I wanted layers, there were none. Where I wanted length, my hair was shortened. What layers I did get aren?t even blended. As a result, my hair is very short at the top and long and straight at the back and sides. Kind of weird. Although two people have told me that they like my hair color, it?s also not what I?d asked for. Because my hair had become very blonde from a succession of highlighting weaves, I wanted to return it to light brown with sunny blonde highlights. As I?d indicated, I wanted that ?kissed by the sun? look. I ended up with brown hair that has little if any highlights. In her attempt to give me what I asked for, the stylist simply applied brown dye to my hair after weaving out a few tiny strands of the existing blonde. For this I was charged $140 (plus $40 for cut)? Are they kidding?? If you want to pay big $$$ for mediocre to substandard work, this is the salon for you. Otherwise, stay away.

I was very disappointed in my attempted visit to Ritual Hair Design. I received a gift certificate to the salon and was very excited to get my haircut and thought it had to be worth the week wait to get in and having to leave work early to get the first available spot. I arrived ten minutes early to relax and enjoy reading before my appointment. The receptionist was nice enough.
My appointment was at 1:30 and finally at 1:47 my stylist greeted me. She had been busy cutting another woman?s hair. I asked how long it would take and she said the appointments are an hour long I had to leave there by 2:35 at the very latest and could not stay and get my haircut. This was very disappointing after taking a half day at work to get in. I felt like she could've approached me as soon as she knew she was going to be running that late so that I could've left instead of wasting more of my day.
I am not willing to wait another week to get in or take another half day.
There was another stylist waiting around while her client sat under the dryer she could've easily washed my hair to be sure there was enough time to cut it... it's called team work and service. The entire time I waited (17 minutes) she was doing nothing. The customer?s satisfaction should be number one with a little communication they would've known I couldn't stay later than my hour appointment.

The atmoshpere is relaxing and welcoming. Shawn, the owner of Ritual has always made sure that the salon was involved in mindful events that benefit the community. The people that work there are wonderful and the service is fantastic not to mention that you'll love your haircut and color!! I highly recommend Ritual Hair Design. I drive all the way from downtown Portland to go!

It's a true story. I got a haircut by Venis (she does a fantastic job!!) and then later in the day visited my local liquor store. I was carded!! I am nearly 45 years old, but my new haircut took years off of my appearance. Venis rocks!

Pros: locks of love

I have been going to Ritual for years and I love it there. No matter who I see I always feel like I am in good hands. All of the staff are friendly and make me feel welcome. I love that I can pop in and tan at a moments notice. I have done my homework and the prices are the best in town. I really feel at home when I am there. If you haven't tried them you are missing out!

Pros: No freeway driving, great tanning, fun atmosphere

.

I used to head into the city for cuts and color (my HD was great), but with a hectic schedule, I needed a salon closer to home. You all know how stressful it is to find a salon that is a good fit (those can be some tearful days!). I "tested out" some salons and was extremely happy to finally land at Ritual. Ritual rises head and shoulders above the rest. They have a warm, welcoming atmosphere and very experienced crew.

You can probably relate to some of my nightmare encounters at a few salons in the Hillsboro & Beaverton area - kids running amuck, attitudes, overpriced for mediocre service, bad locations/parking, dirty, lack of English resulting in poor communication, hair drowned in product, too inexperienced staff or some places were ghost towns (no customers is a bad sign). At Ritual - none of this!

Ritual is always busy because they are that good. Venis tames my crazy, thick jungle woman hair, so I emerge feeling pretty. She helps me figure out what to do with my unruly hair. I usually have a cut, color and highlights done. I feel relaxed when I'm there. Prices are right, too. I love their location right off Cornelius Pass in the business park.

They make you feel like you're a part of the family ....because we are :) and really feel pampered. They even call you by name when you walk in. I will always go there for ever!

I was referred to Ritual by a friend, and from my first phone call they made me feel like I had been going there for years. They answered all of my questions, gave me directions, and were very professional. When I got to the salon, they offered me a glass of wine and made me feel at home. They were completely gracious, and I haven't even mentioned my hair yet! I didn't know what I wanted to do with my hair, but I knew I wanted something different. My stylist, Shawn, asked me questions about my hair routine and my likes and dislikes with my hair and offered me several different options, describing the maintenance that each would require. We also talked about color possiblities for each one. After deciding on a plan of action, I just sat back and relaxed while Shawn did my hair with the help of her assistant.
I have been to several salons in the last few years, and I can honestly say that I have never experienced an atmosphere Iike I did at Ritual. All of the people who work there seem to really LIKE each other. There was none of that uncomfortableness that is so common in salons. Everyone was laughing and joking like they were great friends and they made me feel a part of it.
When my hair was blown out and styled, I was so excited to see how my new color made my skin seem brighter and my cut is absolutely wonderful! They directed me toward products that I might need to style my hair at home, but I didn't feel pressured to buy, it was more of a "suggestion".
Once I left Ritual, my experience wasn't over. They have a follow through like no salon I have ever visited, and made me realize that they really, really want their clients to not just be satisfied, but to be raving fans. Thank you, Shawn and Ritual staff, for giving me great hair and amazing service. You have made me hopeful that there is still great customer service to be found!

I highly recommend trying Ritual Hair Design. Never have I found a place where you can go and be more at home. The stylist are all wonderful, extremely friendly and more than willing to accomodate. Great hair cuts and the color and highlights could not get better.

I've finally found a place that doesn't require a long drive on 26 into downtown. No more searching for a parking spot for me!

I just had highlights and a haircut at Ritual and I'm so happy with the results. I was nervous going to a salon out here, but, as soon as walked in the door I relaxed. Everyone was so friendly... the cashier, my stylist, the manicurist and the other stylists around me. I think everyone said hi to me and it made me feel like I had been coming there forever!

My highlights turned out to be an exact match to what I had been getting, which was my biggest concern, and my haircut is even better than my old one. My stylist did some neat texturizing technique that I had never seen before.

I will highly recommend this salon to my friends and family!

I went in to Ritual with splotchy, uneven dark black hair and walked out with beautiful natural looking blond hair. Venus was great, she really knew what she was doing, and the whole staff made you feel comfertable. I wasn't sure if my hair was even fixable, after years of abuse to it, but she as able to make it look better then I thought was possible. She might be a genius.

Cons: Little far out (I live in SE Portland), but totaly worth it.

Ritual is easy to get to, and has lots of free parking, unline the downtown salons... They also have free wireless for those of us who need to work throught our appointments sometimes...

Shawn is an exceptional colorist, I always look forward to my appointments!

My visit to Ritual Hair Design was a very pleasant surprise. The staff was very welcoming with a professioanl demeanor. My stylist, Dee, paid great attention to my description of what I desired in cut and color. She repeated my expectations to me and added her thoughts and suggestions to obtain the best results for my hair. Dee did an excellent job providing me a wonderful experience as a first time customer to her and the salon. I am very pleased with the outcome of Dee's attention to detail and most importantly listening to what I truly wanted in my new style. I will pass her card on to my friends and family.

I found this place through citysearch, and based off the best of scores and reviews, I thought why not give it a shot. Although this place takes 40min to get to from my house, I am going here everytime. Great service, Great haircuts and awesome staff. Theres really not much bad things you can say to this place other than the location, but thats only for first time customers.

It's definately an experience getting your hair cut and colored at Ritual. The ladies there are great and so much fun! The whole time I got my hair colored, we were laughing and talking like we had been friends forever. I was also very percise about how i wanted my hair but needed some good vision and artistry to get the cut I invisioned, Shawn my stylist, got it down pat. It's no wonder why Shawn is asked to do hair and makeup for commercials. I've never had a more pleasant stylist. I highly recommend this place!

I was assigned Dee and I couldn't have had a better experience. Dee gave me a great cut that was shaped perfectly and complemented my face. Also, more importantly, the cut kept its shape as it grew out. I can't recommend her enough!

I went to Ritual in April of 2006 hoping to find someone who could cut my long hair. Instead I got a woman who didn't seem to know how to dry or style long hair. I have no complaints about the cut itself however, my stylist didn't fully dry my hair and started in with a straightening iron. When I pointed out it wasn't dry all the way she dried my hair on the top again. I had to point out 5 or 6 times that my hair wasn't dry. It was as if she couldn't tell what was dry or wet. I prefer to have someone cut & style my hair without pointing out OVER & OVER that it's not fully dry! That's what I'm paying her for! I'm pretty sure I could have gotten the same cut and a better style at a place like Supercuts.

There is no more of an unpeaceful feeling then going to a place that was designed with god awful taste, people need to know the truth and about why stylists dont work there for long. The owner gossips all the time, it's pathetic. I loved my stylist Michelle who is there no longer. Glad she found a better place.. but where? Loved my stylist hate the salon now and have never been back. Thanx Michelle.

I've never walked into a salon that makes you feel so warm and welcome. The experience was great starting at with the front desk receptionist all the way to the serive itself. They do a great job in figuring out my "style" right from the get-go. Wonderful conversations we've had between me and my stylist. She has been cutting my hair since I was a youngn'. I recommend coming Ritual if you need a fresh new look.

On a recommendation of a friend, I went to Ritual to get a bad home color job fixed. I can't believe how incredible my hair looks now. It doesn't even look like I ever had that other color on my head. The girl who did my hair was really professional and didn't make me feel bad for coloring my own hair. I got my haircut reshaped and it's much more suited to me now. I thought my husband would give me a bad time for spending the money, but the first thing he said when I walked through the door was, "you get what you pay for"! Thank you Ritual! I'll be back soon!
