After one of our own was named ""The Best Stylist"" by Portland Monthly in August of 2008, 220 salon has received an onslaught of harsh reviews, many we believe to be false. 220 Salon DOES NOT pay for this site and we DO NOT agree with the ethics of this site or any other site in which they provide a platform for anonymous, individuals to bash a stylist or a business either unfairly, untruthfully, personally, and from one perspective. A platform in which people are allowed to provide no personal information, which creates no accountability. A site which so easily allows people to leave repeated reviews by the same person. A site which allows individuals to try and undermine a thriving business. WE DO NOT AGREE.
Since August this site has removed over 40 false reviews from our listing and are currently investigating the remaining post-Portland Monthly article reviews. Therefore, we advise anyone who is using this site for worthy information you either don't use this internet source or you look at the 7 years of reviews prior to the release of the August 2008 Portland Monthly article.
220 Salon includes 9 stylists that work diligently and passionately for their career's. This site has provide a way to undermine the success of not only a salon, but 9 individuals who love what they do.
220 Salon prefers face to face communication. The most important aspect of being a stylist is to make people happy, and the most rewarding. While we understand that we cannot make everyone happy, that remains our mission. Face to face, truthful and honest.
So proceed with caution and take this internet source of communication/referrals for what they are, unsubstantiated.
220 Salon is strong as a team. Growing as individual hairstylists, and are continuing to build as a salon the way we have been for the last 10 years.
