I have a friend who went to the academy & the bullying was rampant. Even the instructor joined in, to shame the student. Awful and unprofessional.

I used to love Tukwila Gene Juarez! No tso much anymore..
I moved out of state 6 years ago and recently moved back and started going to them again - have been 4 times since I got back and never once left completey happy. I've had 2 people cut my hair and 2 people color and out of all 4, I would only recommend Hong for color! She is who I used to have my hair colored by and is still there. Francis is agrumentative! Bathroom was messy, they were out of towels and the girl coloring my hair had to go elsewhere to get a towel. Was left for 30 minutes with a condition treatment on, with my head in the sink (uncomfortable) so that colorist (Kara) could go finish another clients hair that she messed up on earlier!
Their prices are way too high when they don't match up to the quality they used to provide.

Now that Southcenter has expanded, the Gene Juarez is more integrated into the mall. The spa itself if beautiful and they make you feel special the minute you walk in the door. I have used their hair, skin care, massage and nail services. One negative is during the Holiday season the traffic getting into the mall backs up and just getting a parking space can take an hour or so.

Participated (not sure if still does)in locks for love which I thought was really cool. They will cut your hair for free and donate it to make wigs for children. Down-shot is that they give you their very newest or least busy stylists since they are not making money. My stylist was very nice, my haircut- not so much. Seemingly high turnover rate, and in the paper there was an awful story about a woman with severe scalp burns that turned out to be permanent and disfiguring. I haven't visited their salon since.

PROS: atmosphere, participates in locks for love.
CONS: bad news article, varied skilled workers

Gene Juarez downtown spa is a great place for a massage. Not only was the massage therapist technically great, but the extra touches she used - relaxing eucalyptus, warm comforters, thick pillows were decadent. Also, afterwards you get to soak in a special shower, which is divine. It is definitely pricey though - good for a special treat but too expensive to go regularly

PROS: Feel like a princess
CONS: Expensive, No Parking

Gene Juarez Salon and Spas are wonderful. I have frequented the Southcenter store for years for everything from hair cuts, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and make-overs. And now that the salon has been remodeled, its beautiful and just visiting is can be a relaxing experience. The staff is excellent and the stylists are truly artists.

I have been seeing Blair at Gene Juarez since she was at the ATS. I find that she is very knowledgable in color and listens to what you want. She is shy, so you need to pull her into conversation, but that will change with time and building up a clientel. Do not hesitate to contact her for an appointment. Allow yourself extra time. She likes to have it perfect before you leave, which I find a pro rather than a con.

Ok so I saw Naomi for a Brazilian. I've been getting these done for a few years now and know what to expect. She was super fast, and it was the least painful Brazilian I've ever had. She makes you feel very comfortable....despite how awkward this service can be. Anyone who needs a new waxer for this or if it's your first time.....go see Naomi!!!!

Since the renovated spa opened in Southcenter, quality has gone downhill. I had a HORRIBLE hair cut in the spring by Ricco, it was fixed free of charge, but my hair was MUCH shorter than I wanted. In September I decided to give it another chance. I had a wonderful haircut, unfortunately I did not get the business card of the stylist(which I am still kicking myself for). When I scheduled my hair trim I asked for the stylist I had last time. They booked me with Megan, who fixed my bad haircut. Unfortunately it was not who cut my hair in September. I now have choppy layers, my hair poofs and it just looks butchered. Only thing I will go back for are eyebrows, Heather does GREAT eyebrows. The receptionists are rude and why do they act like they are performing brain surgery when looking up a reservation? The ones who answer the phone are even worse. Never getting my haircut there. Waste of money, if you do take your chances bring earplugs there are a few stylists who have some of the most unbearable laughs I have ever heard.

I went to Megan at Gene Juarez Southcenter to have my hair done for my friend's wedding. Megan was friendly and professional. I brought in a picture of what I wanted and she re-created it perfectly! I've been to other salons trying to find a stylist who could create this particular style, and it alway came out incorrectly. Megan achieved what the others were unable to, I will definitely be returning!

I have had 2 massages here. The staff was so nice even when i was late = eek!

They did the whole pampering steam shower for free and scott always makes me feel comfortable even though he is a male masseuse.

Wonderful experience.

Although smaller than downtown, the Spa at Southcenter has the same amenities as it's older cousin. From the relaxing foot soak on arrival to the wonderful Tranquility Massage by Rae, to the shower/steam and all the acoutrements for getting ready after a mind soothing experience. I was there for over 2 hours, enjoying my solitude without whiney kids. Best $80.00 I ever spent! They're now accepting male clients who share the robed waiting room, and have separate changing accomodations. It was discreet and comfortable.

Pros: spa robes, close parking, great massage

Cons: going home :(

If you want to avoid the hastle of paid parking, this is one of the better choices for your spa adventure. The Gene Juarez at South Center has similar services to the other locations, including a foot soak before a massage, and the european shower. Enjoy!

Haven't had my hair cut here, but I for ten years I had bi-monthly facials & other spa treatments. I finally stopped going this past year after deciding the value of the service no longer matched the spa pricing. The Spa staff is knowledgeable and the facials were great, but other aspects of the "spa" environment are lacking. If you are planning to go, try their spa on a weekday. The rooms are generally quieter and the staff not so rushed.
