Been going to this place for YEARS the only place that can cut hair worth a damn. Nicole is the one who cuts my hair and she is HIGHLY skilled!

Also all the girls who work there are cute. The owner is some times there and she is cool and her dog is totally sweet OMG!

AS for taking my dead bodies there that is an inside joke for the people who work there.

I love you guys!

Cons: NONE

My kids and I have had Nikki P as our stylist/colorist here for 4 years, now! We will not consider having anyone else touch our hair...Nikki is totally talented. An artist. She listens, makes recommendations, and we ALWAYS leave amazed and happy.

Everyone at the salon is kind, helpful, and very accommodating. Especially Violet, the receptionist. For example, last March my little girl had just spent 2 weeks at Children's Hospital on her back and was left with a huge rats-nest that needed to be combed out. Her hair was also desperately needing to be washed. She was confined to a reclining wheelchair that left her head far short of the sink, and she was in far too much pain to move or be moved. The situation was looking pretty bleak until Violet (bless her heart) calmly and quietly came and offered us a solution that worked quickly and flawlessly.

My son is now 16, and drives himself to have Nikki cut his hair. He tried other stylists closer to our home, but will no longer take that chance. My little girl is now 11. Nikki has cut and colored her hair in many amazing and beautiful ways appropriate for a young girl living in the 'burbs'. Tonight, she added auburn highlights to my daughters' dark brown hair, and it is so beautiful! We cannot stop raving!!!

As for me: middle aged suburban mom with foiled blond highlights and a perfect cut. All for a fraction of the price I'd have to pay in Mercer Island or Bellevue. Nikki is a gem. Scream rocks!!!

We take my husband to Scream every time he needs a cut. He has difficult thick and springy Asian hair. Often times, if we go else where, he gets a horrible crew or they don't cut the sides short enough... and he ends with an Asian-Fro in less than two weeks. Not at Scream. They let me hang out around the chair (after my own cut) and make recommendations on touch-up areas.

Thanks, girls, guys and "other" at Scream. We love you.

I've been going to scream for 3 years now. The whole time, i've gotten my hairs did by the manager and she has always, and still does, an awesome job!! She's always been eager to offer suggestions, and get suggestions from the other rad girls (and one cute cute boy) that work their. She is experienced, qualified, and damn good at what she does!! She stuck to her guns, when i went a good 4 months trying to talk her into transforming my 13 years of colored black hair into platinum hair. She knew that it wouldn't work with out frying my hair to bits.

This place is an awesome salon. Are the people are amazing, and it's just a fun place to go. These girls (and the cute cute boy) are all amazing workers. I've spent many an hour under the dryer watching them work their magic!

I've gone from Black, to PInk, To Black and Blue, to natural fall colors to black with light pink, and FINALLY to platinum. And i'll start all over again, someday. And scream, will always be the place i go!

I've been looking for a new stylist for months and happened in on the suggestion of a friend. Kelly saw me right away, worked with the style I was going for and offered ideas for products. I usually don't like it when stylists discuss products with me cause it totally feels like they are trying to upsale me. But Kelly was professional and offered ideas based on what I needed. I came out looking great and have decided to call Scream my new home. Prices are reasonable and the peeps are fun.

I generally hate getting my haircut. I never know what to do. I just know that I want it to look good when I'm done. When I went in there for the first time with my friend, Aimee cut my hair. All I told her was that I was tired of my standard buzz and was wanting a bit of length and for it to look good. It came out looking fantastic and she even took the extra time to show me how to make it look good on my own at home. Plus, she's funny, cool and great to talk to.
Oh, and my friend got her very long hair cut and colored and it came out looking more fantastic than it ever has before!

I've been going to scream for 5 years - they did some of the first color I ever had... naturally my hair is black and they have gotten it all the way to platinum blond, a bunch of different great shades of red, black w/ purple and orange highlights, and now back to my natural color - they have helped me grow out my hair, and they have cut it short again

The girls are always fun and the atmosphere is relaxed

I am moving to TX and am sad I won't be able to go here any more - really very distressed that I have to find somewhere new =(

Nikki is awesome and I hear Meggie is coming back (she was my super hair diva before she left scream), and amy, the manager is great

if you want natural color and cut or something crazy and unique they can and will do it for you - if you need guidance on your style or you know just what you want, they are there for you!!!

I love this shop and these girls!!!!!!!!!!

this is an update to fry head. in the months since amy at scream put 40 volume peroxide on the ends of my hair which had already been color treated, then putt me under the dryer, essentially melting the hairshaft, and shocking my hair follicle causing hair loss, i continue to lose hair daily. i had to get 8 inches cut from my hair, and must heat style the ends to tame down the frizz.

this has affected my work. imagine auditioning for a classical role with a short modern hairdo. imagine getting under bright stage lights when overhead light shows how bald my scalp is. i had told amy that i was excited about getting back to work (down 18 months with a back injury) and it was then she had to destroy my hair.
scream continues to deny there was any damage at all, though i have seen several staylists for consultation, including some just feet away from scream. the overwhelming response: WHO did this to your hair?!
i answer honestly: amy at scream.

i would have been satisfied (not happy, the damage is done) had amy been honest, owned up to what she did, and shown a little sympathy to a client who regularly patronised her for a couple of years as did my husband (who also got damage that day). i dont feel it was done on purpose, but what is unnacceptable was how she and her boss behaved after the damage was done. she held my breaking, dull frizzy hair in her hands, and denied there was any damage.

i am getting baby hairs growing over my scalp, though my hair is pitifully thin an getting thinner, at least amy didnt damage my follicle to the point i cant grow new hair, i just have to lose all the hair i already have first.

i have 3 years to file a suit. considering the hair treatments, additional cutting and styling, products, styling equipment and the hours i need to spend making my hair look normal, i will ask for damages as well as suffering.

again, any didnt set out to destroy my hair, but once she did, she behaved awful. as did scream.

I had been seeing Aimee for over a year. She had done a good job. Until I went in last time. I had color, highlights put in (at her recommendation) and when I got home, my hair was frizzy, dull, breaking off, and unmanageable.

I tried product, conditioning etc. nothing worked, I called the salon. No one bothered to tell Aimee, several days passed until we spoke. She didn??t know what happened. I went in, (a 60 mile trip one way). She had to order a product that was going to 'fix' my hair. Another trip. It didn??t help much. She said the lids were switched on the peroxide, burning my hair.

I called again, still having problems, she tried to convince me there wasn??t damage, and she didn??t feel my hair was as damaged as I did (two weeks of broken hair, unmanageable frizz) and I shouldn??t feel bad cus my hair wasnt as damaged as hers. she gave me an almost empty tube of reconstructor and some treatments, which she made sure to mention ( 'I GAVE you') as though taking my 3 trips to Seattle, a tank of gas, and 15 bucks on parking, and her failing to fix her own mess is a favor.

I went to 4 different stylists. Without saying why asked for their opinion. All three spoke to the damage done, the sloppy cut, and the major frizz.

I find it ironic that out of my friends, my husband, and 4 professionals, all notice my fried hair, and Aimee, who made it that way keeps repeating 'your hair isn??t that damaged' as though I just like having all this drama.

*update* my hair keeps breaking. Aimee??s boss said a refund was coming. I called after a week, left messages, had to catch her to ask AGAIN for refund. Refund sent. They kept the tip. Nothing for gas or parking. No apology.

I agree with the 7/30 positive review of this place. I have been going to Amy for 3 years on the recommendation of two friends. She is great! She always listens to concerns and comes up with great ideas. My color always is fun and my cuts are great. The people there are funky and interesting. If you want an experience like you would find at a mall salon, this is not for you, but if you are looking for people with interesting ideas for your hair and fun conversation, this is it!

My job means I need to be more "professional-looking" than I would sometimes desire, but they give me ways to have fun with that!

Contrary to another posters 'speculation' I did not blow-dry my hair into falling out. READ: the peroxide was misused, Aimee said so herself.
after 6 weeks, lost so much hair you can see scalp clearly. will be seeing a hair loss specialist, and retaining a lawyer.

nothing ticks me off more than people with an axe to grind that sign up for an account on citysearch, only to slander a local business or person that is more undeserving of it than Amy at Scream.

A perfect example of this is "fried hair" above. I think it's pretty obvious that the comment from "fried-hair" has an axe to grind (from her name). I normally don't post in Citysearch (or much of anywhere else) but wanted to share my experience I had here. Of course there are many salons in town, including a few knockoff "wannabe" salons but nothing comes close to the experience I had here. Admittedly, I am not an easy customer. I expect a lot from my stylist and came here on a recommendation of a friend. I have been a customer here ever since I sat in Amy's chair several years ago. Although some of the other stylists can be a bit loud and obnoxious at times, the place is fun and reasonably priced. I have to cheat on a few of my stylist friends in order to come here (shhh!! ; ) I have been to MANY salons and have paid 4 times the amount of money I spend at scream - and still haven't recieved the amount of perfection and professionalism I get at scream EVERY time from Amy.

hey "fried hair". Amy has applied natural dye in my hair dozens of times. What part of natural do you not understand? It has NO PEROXIDE in it. It sounds to me like you have to drive "60 miles" to get a haircut becuase you probably have already "fried" all the other salons in your area. Why don't you get a life!

I read the most recent review, and afterwards I just had to stick up for my girl Aimee; my experience with her could not be more contradictory. She's been my colorist for years, taking my mousy, light-brown hair and turning it a Marilyn platinum. I had seen at least a dozen different colorists prior to going to Aimee on a friend's recommendation, but none of them could achieve what I wanted (I'll be up front: I am remarkably fussy about my color). My hair has a "hidden red" pigment common to many people of Irish descent that makes blonde come out with brassy orange overtones if not toned correctly.

Aimee not only gives me the cool golden platinum that's precisely what I want, she's also the only one who can tame my unruly, stubborn frizz with a flat iron. I always leave her chair with gorgeously smooth locks--women will literally stop me on the street to ask who does my hair. Furthermore, I actually dig the appointments themselves. It's not an unpleasant chore like going to get my oil changed; I look forward to seeing her every few weeks to get my roots done and catch up with her. She has a wicked sense of humor.

I'm really sorry that one of her other customers was left so unhappy, but I can only imagine that this was an aberration, or perhaps the customer wasn't taking the precautions that anyone whose blonde comes from bottle has to. Daily shampooing and blow-drying can "fry" anyone's processed hair if not done with care--everyone who lightens needs to be delicate with their locks afterwards!

I always leave her chair with gorgeously smooth locks--women will literally stop me on the street to ask who does my hair. Furthermore, I actually dig the appointments themselves. It's not an unpleasant chore like going to get my oil changed; I look forward to seeing her every few weeks to get my roots done and catch up with her. She has a wicked sense of humor.

I'm really sorry that one of her other customers was left so unhappy, but I can only imagine that this was an aberration, or perhaps the customer wasn't taking the precautions that anyone whose blonde comes from bottle has to. Daily shampooing and blow-drying can "fry" anyone's processed hair if not done with care--everyone who lightens needs to be delicate with their locks afterwards!

Pros: Oh so cheap, witty banter, tattoo-parlor atmosphere

Let me tell u when i got my hair done it was a big thing for me i was naturally blond decided to break away be daring a little nervous about it of course but Nikki was done making me look absolutely fabulous i seriously was on a Natural High for 3 weeks I felt fabbing fuckulous the compliments kept flowing in even after the color started to come out of my hair!!! so the first experience was exceptional and the second was just as great except i thought it was a bit expensive the first time i got all over color partial foil and a cut and it was $100 but when i went in and got a partial foil it was $75 after tip of course!! But all in all Scream is a pretty rad little barber shop in a pretty rad city...scream is one of the many quirky places that add to the neat characteristics of seattle's personality!!

i like coming here not just to get a good haircut, but to chit chat. The people who work here are truly an interesting bunch and it is they who are the soul of the business.

Aimee is AMAZING! Oh my gosh! She can cut, color, and do the brows for such a reasonable price! I love what she did with my hair. I have NEVER received more compliments in my life. My friends want to go see Aimee now! Those of you that had a bad experience, obviously didn't go to Aimee.

The only downer was the LOUD girl next to me with the F-Bomb as her favorite word, she made it very hard to have a conversation with Aimee. Regardless, it will not stop me and my friends from going back.

I love Scream ever since I found out about it 3 years ago. It's the only place i can get my blood red streaks w/o going to the overpriced salons (and they can't even get the deep red right.) This place is totally worth going to, and worth every penny.

Scream Barbershop is a somewhat edgy barbershop with a punk rock feeling. Its fits in quite well with the Capitol Hill crowd. Hairdressers are likely to have different colored hair and several tattoos. I havent had my hair colored there but was very happy with my last cut. Besides colors and cuts you can also get your brows waxed.

Ever since I got my hair cut at scream... I am getting flirted with and hit on. ALOT! I totally have cute hair. MOLLY, was my stylist. She was cute as a button and totally nice. She was sweet and gentle with my scalp. It was a fast but well done. My sister who does hair saw my cut and was AMAZED at how cute and professional it was. It is cheap, it is good, I am going back and getting my hair dyed there soon.

I don't even know where to begin. All my friends have commented on my new cut and style. Even my clients that I deal with daily have raved about it. I am sorry that some of you have not had a good experience.

Heather was my stylist, and she is wonderful. I did not even tell her what to do. I asked her what she thought would be best and let her go. It is amazing to me that I have been to some trendy=$$$ and they cannot even do what I tell them.

I suggest that you give them a try.

This place seemed like a fun place. In fact it was. The ladies were very fun. However this place just proves that the saying "you get what you pay for," is right. Their cuts range from $15-$25, and believe me it shows. For starters she (I use "she" because she never introduced herself) took all of 15 minutes (if even that) to cut my hair, and it's not like I was just getting a trim. This is a good place to go for trims and mens cuts, but for cuts that take a little effort from the stylist, I say spend the money and go somewhere else.

I went to Scream after reading other reviews on this site. What a great experience! Trendy but not pretentious, casual, and laid-back. I got a great cut for an AMAZING price. In fact, I'm going back for color! I also got my eyebrows waxed and have never been happier with the results.

If you're sick of paying way too much for a simple haircut, this is place to go. It is not for the uptight, the 'alternative' appearance may be a bit off for some. But, I have always gotten helpful service in there, and saved quite a bit
