Given that Pals had such good reviews I decided to give it a try. Thank heaven hair grows. When I was watching the stylist cut my hair I was puzzled by the technique. I've been to VERY good salons, and I've never seen hair cut like that before. Looking around, I noticed that every stylist was cutting their client's hair the exact same way. My stylist did not check the sides to see if they were even. Then, she took scissors and thinned my hair all around my head! I am fortunate to have lots of hair (but not overly thick). She literally sliced it down so that I look like I have FINE hair! When I got home, I discovered that my bangs are totally uneven with one long chunk 1/2 longer than anything else, and there is a piece of hair cut to my ear that goes half-way back on my hairline. The hair on the other side in this same area goes past my chin. What a mess! My hair looks jagged and limp. And my hair is usually one of my best features! Even my dad, who never notices things like hair, asked me what I "did to my hair."

Pals does a nice job with their salon, and the staff is really friendly. There were refreshments and reading materials available. Prices are reasonable, but still, I will never go back there. Because the stylists are just not good. If you want old-fashioned straight-out-of beauty school hair, then you will be happy. If Pals is the best salon in Longview, it's no wonder I never see good hair in this area. As far as I'm concerned, I'd rather drive a little and spend an extra $20 than have a haircut that forces me to use barrettes every day to disguise the globs of hair hanging where they shouldn't be.

I moved to Albany, Oregon three years ago and I commuted to use Jill for the first year and a half! I tried a few stylists down here and NO ONE COMPARES! I have an appointment next week with Jill and I'm super excited to have her magic hands in my hair!

LOVE THIS PLACE! I travel a far distance just to go get a haircut with Jill at Pals. Jill listens to what you want and goes beyond to make sure the cut and style is perfect for your hair type and face shape. It was by far the best hair cut

Even after moving to Portland, we will only go to Pals. Absolutely worth the hour drive. We've tried other people/places who are supposed to be good, but we've never found anyone who compares. The whole staff is excellent; I would recommend all of them. However, I think Jill is an up-and-coming hair star! They are all very well trained and are always fresh. They are way cooler than any place we found in Portland or Seattle. People are always asking us where we get our hair done, so I carry a stack of Pals cards with me. The atmosphere is wonderful, the music playlist is always perfect, and the conversation great. Pals in in a league of the own! Well done, Allen and Brenda!!!!!!

I went to Erica because I was tired of long hair. She gave me the best haircut I have ever had! I have had MANY compliments on it. I was very nervous about such a change but she did a great job in calming my fears. I would highly recommend Erica and Pals!

I have gone to Allan (owner and stylist) since 1994. I have yet to find a stylist in Seattle that compares. This salon rocks and is ALWAYS ahead of the times. Yet, they like to make sure their customers are happy. So, you won't leave with a style that you are not comfortable with. I now have to drive 2 hours to get my hair styled. Believe me I have looked and looked up here. I have gone to the trendiest of the trendy and they do not compare to PALS for hair. The salon is still small enough that there is quality control. Thanks Allan for nearly 15 years of perfection

I got my hair done here for my wedding and it was beautiful. I took in a picture and it was exact. She was very thorough and even told me how to maintain it for the day!
