I became a fan and a loyalist of Derby largely due to my amazing hairstylist, Sarah and I've now been going there for over 5 years and I always leave happy. It's a cozy neighbo...

I have really thick hair and a lot of it. I went with great expectations. I was excited to try out a new salon in my neighborhood. I wanted a new look. I really loved my hairc...

Best Salon in Seattle...for sure! 6/3/2009

I have been going to Derby for 3 years, and have never been disappointed! A Derby stylist did my hair for my wedding and it was amazing. I would highly recommend Sarah, she's super cool and does a great cut and color. more

Got eye brows waxed during Happy Hour 10/17/2008

I felt like the atmosphere was kind of funky (a lot of grey) and the woman waxing my brows didn't crack a smile after I made a joke (and in general exuded the feeling of indifference). That being said, my eyebrows looked great and I paid $5 less than I do at Gene Juarez (which in this economy I'll take what I can get). Overall, I guess you could say I ended up being indifferent myself... more

Disappointing 6/19/2007

When my younger sister came to town we decided to treat ourselves to a spa day. After reading the reviews we decided on Derby Salon. It looked like a hip, fun place so we were excited when we booked their "girlfriends" package. We made appointments and then confirmed the day before that our selections were booked correctly. The Derby advertises the package we choose as "Time to catch up with a friend while you enjoy some pretty pampering" however when we arrived we were told that one of us would have to go before the other and that there would be a hour gap between services. They did finally work out more reasonable timing but only after I insisted. The manicures are done by the front door (which was left open to the draft) and pedicures are in back so my sister and I wouldn't have been able to visit at all. The cosmetologist who did my mani/pedi had training to do nails but complained about her profession and frankly did not do a very good job. I felt the services were rushed (I left with gritty exfoliator around my jaw-line and in my nose) and the customer service was poor. I would have left when they argued with me about the timing but my sister really wanted the experience and her spa services did seem slightly more professionally managed. more

Exceptional Spa Services/Exceptional Deals 1/25/2007

I am so blown away by the service I have received at this salon. They offer all the spa services you could get, but at affordable prices. I have gotten my brows done during their "happy hour" and I have always been impressed. Their pedicures are awesome!! Yummy smelling products and so relaxing (they even offer wine!). The front desk staff and the people that work there always seem so happy and helpful...the must actually LIKE working there! If you are looking for a Gene Juarez corporate place, this is not your match. But if you like the same services, just a lot more reasonably priced I would HIGHLY recommend Derby. more

Wonderful Neighborhood Salon 8/31/2006

Derby's owner selflessly does wonderful things for the neighborhood and community. The staff has wonderful customer service. I support them for that reason alone, even though I'm not much of the salon-type. more

Unfortunately, Very Poor Customer Service 7/30/2006

I wanted to really like this salon, and I'd read a good review of Tova, one of the stylists - so I called to make a haircut appt., got their message machine (during business hours?) but I did receive a prompt call-back. I made an appointment for the next day. When I went to go get my haircut (after paying for parking) - a receptionist (??) who seemed to be about 16 greeted me - I told her I was here for my haircut with Tova, and she said, "That can't be - she's here but she's working the festival" (there was a neighborhood festival going on.) It turns out they'd written down my appointment for the wrong week. Did I get an apology, or did they even offer to try and find me another stylist who might be able to cut my hair? Absolutely not. She looked at me like it was my fault, and then basically sat there, not knowing what to do. I understand that mistakes happen, but they should apologize and offer to make it right - I was very disappointed and won't be returning here. more

disappointing experience!! 12/14/2005

I went to Derby's on the strength of these reviews for a facial and eyebrow wax. Perhaps there are other better facialists but mine was not good at all(Stephanie.) Also, the environment left MUCH to be desired-I am surprised no one has described the grim grey and dull orange walls, fluorescent lighting and noise from the adjacent room! And the bad muzak on the tiny cd player was god-awful. All of that said, I still could have had a great experience with a good aesthetician. I like the products very much and the sequence of nearly 1/2 hour of face/neck/shoulder massage interspersed with the treatment was a good one. But this couldn't overcome the incredibly perfunctory, like-bad-sex, "techinical" massage and facial I received from S. I don't know if it is always this way or this was a bad day, but at one point I even laughed out loud just because it was sooo absurdly brusque in its execution. more

Hidden gem 11/29/2005

I recently moved from Seattle to San Francisco and let me tell you, it is SO hard to find a great salon. There are a lot of hoo hah type salons that overcharge their customers and treat them like crap, but Derby is not like that at all. I started going to Derby for waxing when it first opened and I was amazed at their prices and the quality of their services. For those of you who love the quality of Habitude in Fremont and Ballard, but don't love their snobbery, check out Derby. The owner of Derby previously worked as an aestetician at Habitude, but left to open her own salon. Forget driving downtown and paying loads to park, Derby is neighborhood friendly and they know what they're doing. They have great deals, like happy hour eyebrow waxing, and bottom line, they treat their customers very well. Long story short, sort of, I haven't been able to find a salon as great as Derby since I left Seattle, so go check them out. You won't regret it. more

Great Salon with a 'services happy hour'! 11/16/2005

As a previous frequenter of Hairmasters and Rudy's, I finally found a solution that excludes a barber and/or myself in front of a mirror with blunt paper scissors. A basic haircut here is generally $35 and the extra $15 is well worth it. They have a happy hour brow waxing from 4:00-6:00 and offer other various services that I’m too cheap to attempt (anywhere), but hear are good. They sell and use bumble and bumble, sell other various handbags and art, and are in general much better conversationalists than Shaky Hands McChatty at your local Great Clips. more

Tova @ Derby gives a great haircut! 11/11/2005

If you're looking for a terrific haircut, go see Tova at the Derby Salon on Roosevelt. The salon itself is not 'super-swanky', but it does have lots of friendly charm (and spa services!) I've been so happy with Tova for the last 6 years...she saw me through growing my hair out...she did gorgeous 'special occasion hair' for my wedding, and recently she gave me the sassiest short cut you ever saw. Also, I found her through my friend who has VERY CURLY hair, and she looks great too. Haircuts are $50. Partial foil starts at $95. Full foil starts at $125. Body waves/perms start at $95. Tova gives discounts to regular customers. more

Nice salon near Whole Foods 10/31/2005

My girlfriend went to Derby salon for a manicure and a facial and loved it. The manicure was good, but the facial was great. Apparently they use Dermalogica products that allow for a customized facial. Everyone there was very nice and professional and their prices are reasonable. She's already made her return appointment. Definitely a place to go for a facial. more

Joey at Derby Salon 10/10/2005

Just wanted to let you know that I have a great stylist/colorist located at the Derby salon on Roosevelt and 64th. His name is Joey and the people at Derby work independently from the Salon. I am not all that impressed with the actual salon but Joey is fantastic. I moved here three years ago and had a tough time finding a new stylist/colorist that listened to what my ideas were with color and with my cuts and he took my ideas and put them into action. (and ensured that I looked and felt good) He calls a few days ahead of time to remind me of appointments, calls a few days after to check in with me to see if I like what I left with or if I had styling questions that have arisen, offers hand massages at times while I am under the dryer, and always gives a scalp massage when rinsing. I have never received such great service. My color, cut and style usually run me $130. His number is 206-228-JOEY. more

Great prices, full range of services 9/28/2005

This is a great place to go if you're looking for reasonably priced beauty services. They even have a couple of great 'happy hour' specials, including a brow wax for $10 and a manicure for $15. They also have fun special events; a friend and I had a great time at a makeup night complete with wine and appetizers. Their site has pricing for the full range of services they offer: http://www.derbysalon.com/ The atmosphere is definitely 'salon', not 'spa', so don't expect waterfalls and soothing music. Just good services for a good price. more

Good Haircut 8/20/2005

Not so hot if you are looking for a walk-in, but if you have got the time to make an appointment, it's a nice place. Different stylists charge different amounts so you can find someone that suits your price range. And they sell a lot of bumble and bumble products too. more

Fun Salon - Go For Their Happy Hour! 8/17/2005

I've been getting my hair cut here for the last two years and all I can say is that they are always expanding or improving! My stylist was originally at Habitude when they were on Ballard Ave and I followed her here. This salon uses Bumble & Bumble products but they aren't product-pushy. Tea or water is offered before hair cuts and a light scalp massage is done before cutting. Check out their Happy Hour M-F between 4-6PM. You can get great salon services like manicures and brow waxing for a discount if you go during Happy Hour. more
