I recently visited Seattle badly in need of a haircut. I did some internet research and had already included Salon Blast on my "short list" of salons to check out once I got to the city, initially because of it's location. I visited the Salon, and felt immediately comfortable enough to scrap visits to the other 2 salons on my list. I made an appointment with Tim (for the next day]. I could not be any more pleased with the cut and style that he gave me. I had been growing my hair out for more than a year, even though I'd never had long hair before. Needless to say, it was a mess when I walked in. Tim listened to what I thought I was looking for, discussed his recommendations with me, and gave me the MOST FABULOUS cut and style I've had in ?? years! In addition, he took the time to make sure I understood what to do with my hair once I got home, and my hair has looked great ever since! He was easy to talk to, very professional in everything he did, and even made a great restaurant recommendation! I even had a fantastic evening with my new hairstyle at the recommended restaurant. Without hesitation, I can honestly offer my highest recommendation to anyone looking for a salon in Seattle. You couldn't do any better with Tim

Wow. I totally became Katie Holmes! I have never gone to a stylist with a picture and come home looking anything like my request. Until now. Juan gave me exactly what I asked for and then some. Tips on how and what to do so I can complete the look when I do my hair art home. I'm lovin' it. You are awesome, Juan.

Tim for the best hair cut in years. Yesterday I came to Seattle, from Gig Harbor, based on what I read about Salon Blast on the internet. My hair is fine, thick, very wavy and grey. I have had such a terrible time getting a good cut hair cut I can't even say how many times I have grown out a bad cut to try another, with hope in my heart. My husband probably dreads my hair cut experiences more than I do, although I try not to take it out on him. Well, anyway, I left Tim with some excellent hair products that I love and a hair cut that is perfect for my hair and face. The true test for me is: after I wash it myself will it look as good as when he styled it? Well I washed it today and it looks like he did my hair. I am soooooo happy. One little thing: As I left Salon Blast and was at the Montlake "u turn" to get on I-5 Northbound, there was a man asking for a little help to get money for shelter that night. After I gave him what he needed, he said, "thank you and I sure like your hair" and then the light changed and he and I parted company. That was a truly sweet and memorable moment for me. Thank you, Tim and I'll see you in 8 weeks.

Jessica loves what she does, which makes her always go the extra step to make my hair perefect. When she sells product, she shows me how to use it. I have beeen going to Jessica for many months, and consider her cuts, colors, and blowouts an essnetial, not a luxury. Her bkow outs really are the best I havre ever had- perfect hair saves on accesories so I can go often!

I've been battling with my hair my entire life. I moved to Seattle and this year started going to Juan for my cuts and color. After each appointment I get a ton of compliments from everyone I encounter (work, gym, Starbucks)! I am now in my "fall" color which Juan chose and it's quite a change from the summer color. I probably would have never chosen it myself and it's perfect! He's definitely an expert! I highly recommend Juan and Salon Blast.

Jessica Rockwell is the best hairdresser I have ever had, has moved to my neighborhood, so much easier for weekly blowouts. I see Jessica regularly for deep conditioning and shine, and her cuts and color are always perfect too..
Jessica figured out a strategy last year to grow my hair out after another salon's breakage disaster, and now my hair has never looked better.
I have always loved Salon Blast, it is snug, friendly and upscale. Walking around Montlake with perfectly shiny hair is...a blast!

I had a similar experience as the other reviewer. I am from Honolulu, and visiting Seattle for Valentines Day with my bo at the University Of Washington. I am part Japanese, and part caucasian. My hair features are very fine, and tend to really dry from the heavy Hawaii sun. I got in on a short notice, and spent about 20 minutes getting schooled on how to care for my hair. I swim for the University Of Hawaii, and color fades out of my hair quickly. So Tim took his time making sure that I knew how to protect my color with a lot of conditoner, and two swim caps. He deep conditioned my hair, color, and toned, and got rid of that troublesome all over gold color by putting five colors. I never felt rushed, ot like another number. My boy friend sat with me the entire time, and he stairs at my head, and tells me how beautiful I look.

Had a really last minute request for a color repair done at another local Salon.
I got wisked right in that evening by owner, and supper nice man, Tim Wilson.
He told me it might take more then one visit to repair color, and cut. I was ok with that. My husband, and I are travelers, and were leaving in two days. We looked at pictures of what I had asked for previously, and he went over technical terms, and got straight to work. He actually had me loving my hair. It has been a long time since I have felt that way. I would judge that his unyielding passion for transforming mundane to artfull ellegance seperates him from others in the world of stylists. I am a swimmer, and he gave me instructions on how to protect his work. I never have written an internet review. The whole service from start to finish worked so well for what I was after. I had to through in my two cents review.

I love my "Juan Lopez" days at Salon Blast! I'm a particularly indecisive client and he's always super patient with me, helping me figure out the best cut for my face shape with my hair type. I love knowing that a hair perfectionist is working on me. I walk away from his chair glowing every single time.

I first went to Salon Blast after a hair disaster. I had my hair cut in a home salon, and immediately regretted it. Asking friends for advice, I was referred to "Tim the Hair God, " at Blast. Tim Wilson is amazing. And I experimented with other stylists in the salon, settling on Juan Lopez. His professionalism and expertise make my hair look amazing on a regular basis! He always does what I want to my hair, has professional and stunning ideas of his own, when solicited. I appreciate his personal approach, his care and consideration. And the rockin' hair I walk away with! Juan's the best, and Salon Blast is the place to go in Seattle for *great* hair!

I know that I can trust my hair to Juan Lopez at Salon Blast because he has the experience and knowledge that great hair stylists need to deliver the best cuts, color and highlights available.
He has never let me down in the least. In fact, he has outperformed all other stylists that I've had in the past.
In addition to his professional skills I also appreciate his sweet demeanor. He has a wonderful "bed-side manner" and a great sense of humor.
It's always a pleasure to see Juan and always leave him with amazing looking hair. :)

I have gone to many Salons in Seattle to find not only a good hairstylist but also someone who gives incredible customer service. Juan not only meets my requirements for service and knowledge of hair, but exceeds it by far. I work in the fashion world and have a very strong personality and know what I want, but what I appreciate is that not only does he taylor the styles I am looking for but he is also very upfront and honest with what is good for the health of my hair and face shape. I could not ask for more out of a stylist. Having a great sense of style with the Knowledge behind it to make precise recommendations is what makes Juan so amazing, So, if your looking for a hair stylist that actually knows what he's doing I encourage you to go see Juan and Salon Blast! You will not be disappointed...

I really love this place. It is not a super hipster Salon, but everyone is super friendly, and tends to their people with skillful eyes. I am a people watcher, and love taking in the attitude of professionals who love their handy work.
In College I had a roommate with a plaque that said "The only man a girl can trust is her Daddy."
A girl needs at least two men she can trust in life: Daddy, and her hair stylist.

I have been a follower of Tim Wilson for 4 years. I get raves about my blonde color all the time and wouldn't trust these strands in anyone else's hands (when let's face it, lots of colorists think big, chunky, obviously highlighted streaks look good since you see it everywhere. I don't have great hair to start with, so I don't know how he manages to cut it so it seems to have some life! All I know is, the one time I strayed, I was told by my secretary, the most brutally honest person I know, that I needed to go back to him. Enough said for me; I'll never cheat again for the sake of convenience!

Glad to be back @ SB

Never in my life did I think I would become that crazy weirdo girl. You know, the, the one who wants to follow her hair stylist to hell, and back. The one man who I enjoy and fully trust in cutting my unwieldy locks. I devoted what seemed like hours to Google searches in attempts to locate a hairstylists who could wield a good pair of cutting shears so I might feel fabulous once again. My heart-pounding anxiety was subdued when I made an appointment at Salon Blast with Tim Wilson; it only disappeared once I sat in the chair and had official confirmation I was back in safe scissor range.

Salon Blast is comfortable with gorgeous, simple decor, and a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Though I can't speak personally to the other hair stylists there, the fact that the hair washing is so thorough and detail oriented is reason enough to make an appointment. My inclination is to strongly recommend my guy Tim to any curl-rockin ladies, but I'm not sure I am selfless enough to encourage other girls to getting an amazing haircut only to become even hotter.

Moral of the story: If you have curly hair, and want to be ugly, don't go see Tim

I'm a transplant from LA and after carefully searching through the web for a new salon I came across salon blast, I went to their website and researched each stylist carefully. When i came across Juan's profile and read it I knew he was the stylist for me. I loved that he mentioned that he was from LA also and loved gardening.

When i came in i was greeted by one of the stylist in the front with long hair and thought to my self "I want her Hair". Ithen was approached by another stylists and asked if i wanted water, tea or coffee while i waited, little did i know that was Juan , he was warm and friendly.

Juan was a good listener. He gave me an amazing cut but above all a kick ass new hair color. Ive always wanted to be a nice chocolate brown with a few highlights. He gave me just that.

Thank you Juan for your hard work on my hair, see you in 6 weeks. your stuck with me!!

Yesterday....a new hairdo, by Timothy (the owner of the salon).

I drove all the way from Lynwood to see Tim, well worth the trip! In fact, I went twice...once for a consultation, and again last week for color, highlights & cut.

I was there for awhile, a few hours....but the entire process took much less time than at other salons, by far. Timothy obviously is a master at doing highlights in record time. And the cut....he tuned into exactly what I wanted, short & choppy.

I'm pretty much blond now, thanks to a zillion highlights, & I love it.

I've never been so pampered at any salon. I was offered beverages, handed magazines, asked how I was doing under the dryer, you name it. I'm learning that you probably gotta go to Seattle for all this.....and so I shall, in the future.

Some years ago I used to go to a place in Bellevue, in the heart of the mania, where parking even in the public lots was often nonexistent. As soon as I have time to get dolled-up & put on make-up, will post a pic of the new beachy, carefree 'do that has already turned a few heads. Do blondes have more fun.
I could not be happier, thanks Tim & staff

I had an okay experience with Mariah at Salon Blast. The cut was good, except about 2 inches too short- I've worn my hair up for a week since I had it cut. But the thing that's been bothering me is her attitude. She was very condescending to me, laughing at me often. In all honesty, I didn't think she deserved the tip I gave her, but I was too afraid of not giving her something, since she was the only one working at the time. I have very low self-confidence to begin with, and my experience at Salon Blast, coupled with the too-short cut, made me feel very small. I'm hesitant about going back when my hair grows out, because although I like the cut, I can't take the hit to my self-confidence again. Perhaps I should try someone else at the salon?

Yesterday I went into salon blast to get a much needed haircut. Another salon in town had chopped my long hair into an uneven choppy disgusting bob.
This is the first time I ever went to blast and let me tell you it was an amazing experience. Antonio is so amazing at the art of cutting. I mean when I walked into the salon he already knew what kind of haircut I wanted. He blended the haircut and angled the layers beautifully. My hair looks like a sexy short cut and I love it.
Aside from being a great artist Antonio is intellectual and witty, which makes me want to go back to him again and again.

I was Christmas shopping downtown Seattle when a pleasant guy approached me, and asked me if I wanted to be a hair model. It was very flattering. I have never had anyone ask me about hair modeling. I am certainly not what one would describe as cover girl beautiful, nor do I have the easiest hair in the world to work with. He promised that he was not a stocker, and that I could google his name, and Salon, and read about his pride in coloring, and cutting hair. After checking his background I decided to wrangle the courage to let him go ahead. So I called, and we settled on a time, and day. He told me that I had a really good neck, and that my head shape was perfect for a collection of work that he was training with. I left looking like an art piece. I work in the city, and he told me that people would notice my hair. I left home for the holidays to Washington DC, and people in both airports have complimented on the blonde color, and hair cut. My mother, and sisters were amazed. I haven??t written reviews in the past, but just wanted to check in, and say thank you to Tim for a really nice start to my 2010.

I have been looking for a GREAT stylist who will give me a SIMPLE cut without the big ego since I moved to Seattle. Well... after several failed attempts, Salon Blast wins!

This is the best and easiest cut I have had in 5 years.

I explained to Tim the problems I have with my hair and what I wanted it to look
like. I showed him a picture of me with my favorite cut from 6 years ago and he
replicated it perfectly.

I would have paid twice the amount I did for this cut. It is perfect and from now
on he is my number one stylist and recommendation in Seattle.

So: I am editing this review after 6 weeks to let readers know that my hair cut
still looks great and I have not had to work at keeping it up. I am going back to
see Tim in 2 weeks and I'm not stressed at all. In fact, I almost wish I needed
another cut sooner just because he did such a great job

OK - so another update - second haircut tonight - still incredible! , And finally
- the rest of the staff is super sweet. I liked this place the first time I went,
but now I LOVE this place for the perfect haircut for me!
Hi there all! Yet another update! My 12/14 cut was the best yet and is still
awesome! I gave Tim Wilson all creative control and left looking like a rock star!
Seriously!

So: I am editing this review after 6 weeks to let readers know that my hair cut
still looks great and I have not had to work at keeping it up. I am going back to
see Tim in 2 weeks and I'm not stressed at all. In fact, I almost wish I needed
another cut sooner just because he did such a great job

OK - so another update - second haircut tonight - still incredible! , And finally
- the rest of the staff is super sweet. I liked this place the first time I went,
but now I LOVE this place for the perfect haircut for me!
Hi there all! Yet another update! My 12/14 cut was the best yet and is still
awesome! I gave Tim Wilson all creative control and left looking like a rock star!
Seriously!

Pros: I always look for draw backs, and I got what I asked for

.

I had an incredible experience going to Salon Blast. I had searched for hair salons in Seattle, and am extremely picky as I imagine are most women with hair. Antonio was welcoming, funny, and TALENTED. I've spent hundreds on haircuts, and none compared to what I received from him. I am hooked for life.

Pros: Antonio is the greatest stylist

Cons: The decor could use some modifications...

.

After living in Southern California, Florida and Washington I have had the opportunity to go to many fine salons. I am very picky when it comes to my hair, because it is long, thick, highlighted/lowlighted, dry and unruly at times! My hair is definitely not the easiest head of hair to do or manage. Over the past year in Seattle I have searched high and low to find someone in the area who can actually do a decent job on my hair and needless to say I wasn't having much luck! At the beginning of October after alot of research and word-of-mouth...I made an appointment at Salon Blast. When I called the owner Tim Wilson and explained my hair and what I was looking for he referred me to Antonio. I was very anxious at my first appointment because I was concerned if it didn't work out the way I was hoping I was going to be very discouraged because my hair is very important to me. However after I arrived and met Antonio, I instantly knew I was in good hands!

Antonio is the sweetest, most friendly, adorable guy... who is EXTREMELY TALENTED at what he does! My first blow-out with Antonio was incredible and I honestly had never been happier with my hair... it looked, felt and even smelled fabolous. He took his time and listened to everything I asked him to do or not to do... Now Antonio is cutting my hair and doing my highlights as well. I am hooked and very excited to have found him!!!

I love getting blow-outs as much as possible too, because I know once he's done my hair will look awesome even several days after he did it. I cannot say enough good things about Antonio, he is very knowledgable about the hair industry as well...and fun to talk to!! I look forward to being Antonio's client for a very long time...I encourage anyone to give Antonio and/or Salon Blast a try and I bet you will be as impressed as I am...and many thanks to Antonio, you are the best!!!

Pros: Talent/Skills,Conversation,Avaliabilty,Prices & ANTONIO!

Cons: Farther than I'd prefer to drive. But very worth it!!!

I had my first haircut at Salon Blast with Tim Wilson, and I will most definitely be going back. Tim sat with me and assessed my hair, really taking the time to look at it and talk with me about what I wanted. He was honest on what would look best on my face-shape, and gave me a cut that suited my lifestyle (long enough to put back in a ponytail, bangs long enough to tuck behind my ear, etc). He also did the hairwashing and hairdrying himself, not outsourcing it to someone else.

I highly recommend going to Salon Blast, and seeing Tim.

Pros: Great service

I LOVE this Salon. The people there are always so friendly, and I know how difficult that can be day in and day out doing customer service. I have been to a few different people but I think Tim is by far one of my favorites. I know that when I go into the salon I will come out with the exact hair cut and more importantly hair color that I want. He makes sure we talk about it, and explains everything very thoroughly. I do not mind paying a lot for my hair , and thank god it includes the style afterward as well. I think one of the most annoying things about high end salons is when they charge you to blow dry your hair and style it, as if you would usually leave with sopping wet hair like any other day out the door especially after shoveling out over a hundred dollars. Won't go anywhere else

I am picky I know. I have had my hair cut all over the world and Seattle is probably the worst city for talent that isn't $75 for mens hair cuts.

Not being at work on time when the apt was on your books for over 4 days is just lazy. Quality of stylist wasn't that great and seemed scared to cut difficult hair. Products used on my hair were not of high quality either. WONT BE BACK. EVER.

Pros: uhg

Cons: No Debit or credit cards and just wasnt that good

Tim Wilson-- he's only the most bomb stylist this side of Pike, and Pine Street.

I've been going to him for about 6 years, ever since my former roommate brought me to him with my mop top. He even forgave me when I strayed to other peeps during a time of unemployement, and took me back with open arms, and worked his magic. I usually plop down on the chair and tell him to do whatever and leave enough f or later coiffing

Yes, he's exuberant HE??S contagious.

I can't say enough good things about Tim....and while you could probably go for 6 months between one of his haircuts, he's an addiction that will keep you going back more often.

They carry some sweet product lines too

Pros: On time for six years

I found Salon Blast through citysearch two years ago. I have been seeing Antoino ever since. He is truly an artist. I have never had such awesome cuts and colors! His cuts grow out so well, I can go for months and still get complements on my hair. He is a hairdresser - I am amazed at how many ways I can style my hair and they all look different. If you want a relaxing experiance, a theropy session, and to walk out feeling sexy, fashionable and refreshed go see Antonio.

Pros: easy to find, not rushed

Cons: none

.

This was my first haircut at a stylist. All of my previous haircuts were at the local barber so I really wasn't sure what to expect. I wanted to try something different with my hair and my attempts to get my barber to try something else never really turned out well.

The experience was really enjoyable and the haircut was fantastic. Antonio was able to carry on a conversation on a variety of topics while he cut my hair. I learned a lot about hair care while I was there as he shared tips and tricks as well as letting me know what he was doing. The haircut was slightly longer then I'm used to but I think that's because he used all scissors and took his time making sure it was perfect.

I've never really gotten any complements on my haircuts before (other then, 'oh hey, you got a haircut') but I actually got about 5 or 6 compliments on my hair the next day.

I will definitely go back to Antonio, I love his work! Thanks!

Pros: Great conversation, and styling. Not too expensive

Cons: Took longer then a barber haircut but looks much better

.

Woohoo! Very accurately describes my reaction after this haircut, color.

I've got super curly dirty blonde hair. Therefore, haircuts always make me anxious.

I only started embracing "expensive" haircuts a few years ago living in NYC when I treated myself to a cut at Oscar Bond Salon. I figure you wear your hair everyday, so it's a worthy investment. I haven't been able to duplicate that NYC experience. I was looking for someone who had good training, and Tim renewed my faith
Friday was rainy and humid so my attempts at showing up at the salon with my hair looking super curly were thwarted so I was concerned he wouldn't have the right idea of what my hair is capable of. He pointed out to me that he likes to tease out curly hair and see how it "poofs" because then he cuts it to prevent it. No triangles here!

After that preliminary cut, it was washed gently and then meticulously shaken/drip/scrunched dry with paper towels. I've had that method once before when I was in NYC - guessing it might be Deva-inspired? Anyways, I was put under a slow radiant dryer for a spell and then he did final touches. My curls have never looked that good!

The true test was that last night I tried to replicate the styling and considering I didn't have the exact fancy products or drying machine, it still turned out fantastic. I've found a new fabulous stylist! Someday I'd like to take the plunge with a short haircut and I'd be confident that Tim could handle it. My hair is easy to color. Nothing complex, just streaks of blonde to keep me from looking any older

Overall, the salon was neat and clean. I had read the reviews and knew to bring cash . My 4:15 Friday appointment was right on time and despite the laborious haircut/drying/trimming process.

Pros: Excellent coloring, and hair cutting

In case you hadn't heard, vanity is big this time of year. Best to get a good haircut lest you're party going is out of sync, and strangely remiss. All big cities are appearance obsessed and so there is never a shortage of a place to chop. Although I haven't made permanent residence in Seattle for many years, whenever home I loyally go to the same place.

Salon Blast Has International Training. I first went here when I was eighteen or so and have always gotten a great haircut. The customer service is relaxed, and people seem to be keen about this place, as they stroll in, and out. I've always gone to the same guy, so if you can fork over his higher prices I recommend going to see Tim, or Juan.

Pros: Always on time

Cons: I live in Vancouver

I have been going to Tim for years. I went to school in New York, and would forgo haircuts throughout the semester so that he could cut my hair when I went home. Now, I live in L.A. and he is still my go-to hair stylists. Every 6 months I fly home to see family and get my hair cut at Salon Blast.

I trust him completely, often letting him "play" without any direction. The result is always a little funky and really fun. He pays attention to face shape, personal style and hair type to create a unique haircut that fits my life and my look.

I get compliments on my hair every time he does it. I was in New York for four days last week. No Brush, no dryer, and after day three days I decided to get my hair styled air dried. I went onto Frederick Fekkia Hair salon, and they graciouslty set me up with a very nice stylists to wash, and style my hair. So she asked me if I had just colored my hair, and I told her no, I am getting it done in a week. She just marveled over the colors. The Girls who checked me out of the Salon did the same thing. None of them could believe that I was ready to return for a color. I thought that was a big compliment to Tim??s work. They tried to sway me into coming back for a colr. I said no way I am leaving my guy!!!!

Cons: nada

If you can afford to have a really great celebrity caliber hair cut then this is the salon I would recommend. I have been to the other big name usuall suspects at Seven, Gene J, and the Sasson salon Check out my other reviews and read the saga of hair trouble I have had with salons. If I recommend a salon that's because it's the best. My stylist really listened to me and did exactly what I wanted down to every detail. I went for a drastic change in length and I could tell he was a bit nervous, but it was the most dynamic cut I have ever had. The salon is affordable, and I have become a regular client

So after exchanging a few emails, I saw the write up in Elle Magazine which added Salon Blast to the top 100 Salons in America. I went to see Tim Wilson for a highlight and cut. He was more than accomodating, sincere, and genuine. Mission accomplished! I loved my result, and really appreciated how detail-oriented he was. He explained the 'hows and whys' of everything he did, and made sure I was comfortable with the direction he was going with my hair and that he fully understood what I wanted. He listened to and retained every word I said, whether it was about my hair, my job, my interests...and it was blatently obvious that this man knows hair. Also obvious was how highly respected and loved he is by his staff. His co workers have their heards down like worker bees, and overall, I really felt a warm, friendly, and comfortable vibe - something that most other high end salons can't boast. I had a great time and he did a fantastic job.

Pros: Excellent on my long hair

Cons: Can figure out how get him to show up daily to do my hair

.

I wanted to try something new and different. I always had friends cutting my hair
and I thought it was time to pamper myself.

I made an appointment and was able to go the same day which I thought was incredible
and somewhat unheard of.

The woman who cut my hair...well I don't recall her name but she had a very lovely
accent and was really good at what she does. I was going for a total change. I
wanted short Paige bangs. She was nervous . She said she had never done it before
and I was like "ahhh its hair...if you f*ck up, it grows back!" But she did an
awesome job and I was so happy with it. I got home and my boyfriend was all hot and
bothered with the new look. Sexayyy!! Constantly got compliments on it from
everyone I know.

The salon itself is suitable. Its very naturally lighted. You're comfortable and I
think that??s important in a salon. Everyone else working there seemed to be pleasant
as well.

Once my hair grows in again I??ll probably be getting my mid summer cut here. Can't
go wrong. I just hope "she" is still there.

* also...the prices are outstanding. I believe it was $65 for a cut. Great Value

Yes I too really found Salon Blast like so many of you. I did the onlinesearches, and got refered here.
I saw Juan for the first time to get a new cut, and he did a really nice change to my hair color. I am super pleased. The salon is very cute, and clean. I always look for clean. it is a red flag if a restaurant, or little business is dingy. The people were very friendly Mariah is sweet, and very friendly.
Thank You to Juan

Last night, Tim at Salon Blast gave me the gift of bangs -- a gift I was always scared to ask for because I have curly hair. For years I've suffered wracking bouts of bang-envy of my straight-haired friends, never thinking it possible for me to sport a fringe, because let's be honest: no one wants anything on their face befitting the description "short and curly".

I never broached the subject with past stylists; for some reason, I didn't feel like I'd trust them if it wasn't their idea. When Tim mentioned bangs as an alternative to a standard shape-up of my overgrown shrub-like 'do, I decided to go for it, equal parts trepidation and excitement enclosing my heart like a vise. (OK, that's a little dramatic, but I was nervous, and intrigued. The last time I had bangs was when I was 5, before adolescence and the onset of the uninvited natura-perm.)

.
I am 27, and my Lox are down to the middle of my back, and bleached colored from years of too much sun. I wanted a deep red brown hair color. I gave him a picture. After examining it. He made it, he handed it back, and asked if I wanted to add more color depth, and add in a few more colors. Heart pumping. I said go a head
I took off my glasses, rendered virtually blind, and let Tim go to work. When I put my specs back on, I was momentarily horrified at the stranger in the mirror, but one short bus ride later, I was home, unable to peel myself from the bathroom and my reflection. This morning I am as excited, if not more. My neighbors have said it looks light years healthier.

Pros: A lot of help Fixing, and styling my bangs

I came to Tim at Salon Blast as a new mom and had a picture of what I wanted. Between pregnancy, and having the baby it just seemed the logical thing to do. Over and over again each stylist told me that if I cut my hair short it would exaggerate my round face. So I was put off it. I brought a picture with me. He told me that it would be no problem and he could customize the look that I wanted. So, nervously, I went under the scissors. He also broke up some of the blonde that I had become really bored with. By the time he was done, I was completely relaxed, and satisfied. He showed me exactly how to style my hair and gave me some tips. When he was done, I was thrilled. My hair looks great. I walked out of the salon with a great sense of confidence. When I got home I still loved it but I was worried that it wouldn't look as great when I washed it and did it myself. Man was I wrong! My hair is too short to put it in a pony tail so I have no excuses. It takes me 20 minutes to do my hair which used to take an hour and I love it. I always have it done now. He has me for life!

My hair is too short to put it in a pony tail so I have no excuses. It takes me 20 minutes to do my hair which used to take an hour and I love it. I always have it done now. He has me for life!

Pros: Very Knowledgeable about Hair Color and Syling

.

Being a first time person, I was a little nervous about trying another salon in Seattle. I have been a fan of the big spas in the past. I have been to the Salon that plays music louder then night clubs, and I have visited the salon chain that has held the torch in Seattle for the last twenty years, and neither of these places had very inspired coiffures. One of the girls in my law firm suggested I try Salon Blast. She said these people spend a lot of time Training, and really love what they do. I got a really good vibe from the stylists at this place. The two working near the entrance booth greeted me when I entered.
I moved here from Hawaii and have spent a year searching for a really good person to work with my hair color. My frustrations are behind me. I brought a picture of the color I wanted. Tim went over all of the cautions from my former color, and just did a first class color, and spent more time after cutting showing me how to use rollers to get wave, and light curl into my very straight hair. I really have to mention that the lady ahead of me could not have been crazier then any person I have ever seen in a salon. She kept running her hands through her hair as her stylists was shaping, and demanding more be cut in one area, and more thinned in another area, and complaining about the last salon she had been to.I closed my eyes, and all I could think of was this guy is not going to have an ounce of creative energy left by the time he gets to me. On the nut case meter, she was a ten. I have to give him a ten for the polite patience she received. I guess crazy people need their hair cut as much as the sane. I asked about her, and he was very nice, and just wanted to talk about my hair. I was very, very pleased, and promised to write a well deserved review.

Pros: Time well spent.I din't have to pay for parking

Ok! So now I have been back three times. The first time I had my color brightened. It is a sad day when the gray begins to out pace the natural hair color. I had hair to the middle of my back. So I only wanted a small amount cut off. Everything went well. The color was very natural, and I had a hair cut that did not freak me out. I was very pleased. The second time I was willing to let the man do what he thought would look best. We spent a very fair amount of time talking about the length, and style. I thought of giving up a mile of my hair, and Tim suggested only a few more inches to avoid the trauma of separation anxiety, and for the color he nicely blended multiple colors. Honestly I have never had so many people comment on my hair. If it were not for the gray creeping in, and my hair growing like an out of control California forest fire I would have left it alone for six months. It just looked outstanding, and I actually enjoyed styling. My third time was the just as good as the bonus round second visit without the long consultation from the previous visit. He is pretty meticulous, and gets to working intently, and doesn??t want to come out his trance until it looks like a master piece. I have a lot of hair, and feel very comfortable endorsing Salon Blast. My sister sees Mariah, and she too always has a great experience.

Pros: professional attitude

The Salon atmosphere is very Boutique, and not stuffy. They stylists are like little worker Bees attending to customers, and smiling at everyone walking into the Salon. I brought a picture into the Juan at Salon Blast and I left with the hairstyle i had imagined. Juan spent about two hours personally making my hair look exactly like the picture and he even stayed until 8:00 PM. He stayed late making sure it was perfect. The service was incredible, I felt more like a guest than a costumer and Juan was sincerely interested in my ideas for the haircut as well as friendly. I'm so glad that I chose to get my hair cut here.

Pros: No attitude

Every haircut I have received here I have loved. My mother and I go here regularly and personally, I have always had a good experience. The staff is always friendly - in person and on the phone. Tim makes his recommendations but always goes with what I want (which is usually his suggestion since I always love his ideas). He isn't afraid to try new ideas/techniques, and there is no pressure to buy product either. I do like how before and after the cut/color, that he looks at me through the mirror. It made me uncomfortable at first because I wasn't used to it. But I like it now since it makes me feel that he is actually looking at me the way I see myself, and listening to what I want. My mother is a little more demanding. I really wish there was a way to put her before, and after picture on this site. She had a head of very gray hair, and little style. I don?t know how he talked her into this style, but it is really fashion forward short blonde color, with dark included and cut with long pieces that swing like a junior high kid. Cute. It is hard to say she is mom. She looks younger.

I am new to Seattle and looking for a new salon and found Salon Blast on CitySearch. The hair photos look great on this site and your salon's website! Are they all your personal works? I saw some of the photos on various national magazines. Do you do editorial work? Please post reply...Thanks Tim!

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

My wife asked me to write a review. She started as a customer about a year ago. It took a lot of pleading on my end to get her out of the obsession of cutting her own hair. I bought her a gift card, which she did not use, and finally just walked her in the door, and she got right in. She is a professional person, and very beautiful, but zero talent when it comes to hair styling. I have to give these guys kudos for patience. She has seen about everyone in the salon. They have done a really terrific job of helping her develope a small scale version of fixing herself up daily. I AM IMPRESSED. About a month ago she anounced that she was going to color her hair. Will she did it, and I do not know much about the process but she looks like the girl I married ten years ago.

Pros: PATIENT STAFF

Very professional, but not intimidating. The staff are friendly. I feel confident seeing any of the stylists who are available at the time I can come in. They are all good! I am growing out my hair (after a terrible experience somewhere else) and they have helped me through the nearly year-and-half process. I am very happy with the results. I am trying to be good and book every 6 weeks, otherwise, I can be tempted to cut my own hair. After I had the bad haircut, I was like hey! I could do a better job, snip snip! The staff have been very tactful and kind about correcting my mistakes! The owner, is always there, and he seems to be an encouraging presence to the other stylists. I usually book when I can take the afternoon, because I've had experiences at almost every salon, but the wait has always been reasonable here. I plan for that, because that is how it generally goes at any busy salon. On sunny weekends, my husband and kids play at the park in the Arboretum, or Library (which is a block away) while waiting for me. We always enjoy that!
Finally I got brave enough to get hair coloring. I had the owner, Timothy do whatever he thought would look proper for my face, and age. No Problem. he instantly pulled out a number of photos of pervious work, and got me even more revvvvved up!!! I work in a downtown Law office, and now I am the TALK OF THE ELEVATOR. Almost every morning some stranger comments on my hair color.

I found Salon Blast through the "Best of" guide on Citysearch. I wanted to find a new colorist to help me heal my hair and hopefully get it to grow after some major hair color damage. I called the Salon and requested Yulia. It was the best decision I ever made for my hair! She has singlehandedly healed my hair and it's actually growing again. I have no breakage and the color is exactly how I like it... not brassy, just a nice light wheat color. If you like your hair light and have had damage in the past, you have to check out this place. She has made my fine hair stronger and healthier while keeping it as light as I like. The salon experience itself is also vey positive. Having spent most of the past 15 years or so getting my hair done in City Center, I wondered if a King County salon could measure up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that yes, they definitely could! Everyone at Salon Blast is customer service oriented and the staff makes an effort to make every person comfortable and even learn every clients' name. They are quick to hang your coat, offer you a Tea beverage or coffee. I even was escorted to my car in the rain when I forgot my umbrella! I am getting married in a few months and I plan to return! So far though, my experience with the salon has been excellent. Thanks !!!

Pros: No problem driving, or parking

How does my hair resemble the enviable curly tresses of a pre-raphaelite model rather than those on the top of a Standard Poodle's head? I have my hair cut and styled by Tim at Salon Blast in Seattle. I have spent years and an embarrassing amount of money to find a stylist who can give my thin, naturally curly hair style, body and the perfect spiral curls I see in the magazines -- and still be able to achieve the same look at home with no muss and no fuss in between visits to the salon. Finally, I found a good hair stylists, and have never been disappointed. Sometimes I would find a stylist who I could count on for a few good cuts and then would fail me. He is amazing. And for five years now, I have never had a bad or even so-so cut. I have also learned that many stylists will say it is the product, not the cut -- but they are wrong -- it is the cut. Anyone in the hair business will tell you that if a stylist can successfully cut curly hair, they can provide exceptional cuts for any other kind of hair. He is also one of the most genuine, warmhearted, and kind people I have ever met; and, I really enjoy consulting with him. What more could I want from a stylist?

Pros: Ten minutes from my office downtown Seattle, Consultations

Cons: none

Six months ago I found Salon Blast on CitySearch. After reading more than a dozen of reviews I thought I should give this place a try. Tim seems to have many years of experience and professional training all over the world, so I requested him to do my hair. On my first visit he was able to fix most of the red and orangy tha my previous hair dresser messed up. Six months later I came back wanting to brighten up for the spring. This time he ruined it. I spent half day on sat and the entire day on sun for him to redo my hair. He put 5 different colors and redo 3 times, but it just getting worse. My hair looks very washedout and trashy looking. Right now I have two different color on my hair and unfortunately my hair very damaged that he suggested I should wait for several weeks before dying it back to one color. Im very embrassed to to go work on Monday. He literally damage my hair...I had bad hair job before but nothing can compared to what Tim did. I was so frustrated that I busted into tear as I'm walking out of his salon. Please do not request Tim to do your hair (EVER!). He just doesn't know what he's doing! I'm not sure about his staff, though.

Cons: not skillful/ knowledgeable about hair colouring

Truth be told, I never feel compelled to write reviews for anyone or anything For 20 years I have driven 2 hours to Manhattan to get my hair done a few times a year at the best of NY's hair salons. It is my favorite and only vice. Okay, so I'm really picky about my hair, and I just moved to Seattle. Tim is hair color Nirvana, and masterfully matched my colored and highlighted hair, and has made it even more gorgeous since coming to see him over this last year. I?ve seen quite a few of colorists on my quest for Mr./Ms. Right (Hair Colorist.) Each one left his or her mark on my hair and some were unremarkably satisfactory. But in the end, their color creations were really a product of their vision, not mine. I have brown hair and wanted ?blonde? highlights, and for some reason my highlights would always come out more in the ?red? family. Getting a good colorist is really hard to do. Finding one and sticking with the person is not an easy task. If I brought him a photo cut out from a magazine he would tell me the truth, he never would tell me something would look great just to appease me. That being said, every suggestion for a cut or color he's given me has been spot on. I get compliments often and have referred many to see him. After years of trying to find the perfect shade of blonde, I am soooo happy with my hair. I stepped out of there blonde and beautiful and all my friends were amazed with the results. Everyone at the salon was very friendly. The atmosphere is chill and there is no pressure and no attitude. The salon aims to please and keep its customers happy.
