Everyone was really nice, but the stylist didn't do a very good job. It was uneven, cut way to short, and she didn't style my hair. I don't like walking out of a salon with a wet ...

Horrible and overpriced. Was charged 40 1/2/2012

Horrible and overpriced. Was charged 40 for a hair cut I had to fix myself when I got home. Uneven in front, sides, and back. Didn't use clippers to buzz back of neck. Worse than Great Clips. more

I just had THE best haircut EVER!! 5/15/2010

Today I used a Groupon for a massage and a haircut and was VERY happy. The massage worked out the kinks from my overstressed muscles & felt fabulous. The massage therapist was very knowledgeable and applied the perfect pressure. The massage room was a kick - very theatrical. Not my usual but I enjoyed every minute. After getting destressed and relaxed I headed upstairs to the salon. The place was crazy busy & I had a bit of a wait. That was okay by me since it gave me time to look around and people watch (& it's just wrong to be in a hurry when you're there to relax and enjoy anyway). The stylist kept checking on me and making sure I was okay and gave me some hair magazines to thumb through. I had no idea what to do with my hair but as it turned out, she did and the magazines were not needed. Let's just say my hair is insane. It's wavy as you would not believe, humidity is not my friend (think Monica from 'Friends' - you know the scene), I have a ton of hair (I can't wear hats - my hair doesn't fit in them) & I was about 2-3 months overdue for a haircut. It was a good time for a change & I was happy to let my stylist decide. She was ready to cut my hair how I wanted but let's face it - I'm not the professional and she looks at face shapes, different hair types and so on just about every day. I was happy to let her help me. I was lucky enougth to get the owner Jerri. She was GREAT!! I had THE BEST haircut I have ever had - & I've been to some pretty fancy places & paid a lot of money over the years. Jerri put movement in the back of my hair (I've never seen that before) and made my hair seem NORMAL. She had to cut a lot of hair off to do it (remember, I haven't had a haircut since December so yes, it had to be done) so I went on the REVOLUTION DIET (Jerri's catchy phrase - wish I had heard about it before I starved myself. Could have eaten that piece of cake last night and not worried about it since I just lost 5# off my head.) I can't wait to see the wash & wear. Normally the only time I see my hair looking perfect is right after I leave the salon. Jerri asked questions about my daily routine, how often I wash, what my time schedule was, etc. I was honest and admitted I wash and leave, occasional flat iron, etc. With this information & my willingness to see what she had to offer, I'm pretty sure that this new cut is going to be able to keep up with my carefree daily neglect as well as meet the challenge when I need it to look a little more professional or dressy. Jerri and Revolution are now on my speed dial. I was lucky enough to get Jerri but I have to say, every woman that walked out of that salon had great looking hair. I didn't see a single cut or color that I didn't think looked amazing on that person. I think no matter who you get in that salon, you will get a great cut. Why did I give 5 stars when I had a couple of "cons"? I said "small". Yes, it could use a few more waiting chairs. But the atmosphere would not be the same if it were bigger. It was a very friendly group that worked there and you could tell they were close. Not sure that would be the same in a bigger place. I also said "not a lot of parking". Even so I found a parking space right out front. I saw a lot of people in there that were talking to the stylists like they had known them for years. That's good!! It means they come back time after time and are happy with their services. Definately a "Cheers" type of feel. Open your mind, accept the place for what it is and accept a little help from the stylists on how your next cut should be. Be honest on your lifestyle and your needs and no doubt you'll find a Revolution of your own. Pros: Awesome stylists, cool atmosphere, friendly Cons: Small, not a lot of parking more

Groupon brought me in 5/2/2010

Was NOT what I was expecting or hoping for. First off a place that doesn't have pictures of the inside of their business is a little sketchy to begin with - but I wanted to be pampered so I went for it.*Well it wasn't worth my $49 purchase for the Groupon. It was for a $105 worth of services that I know I could have received the same level of competency at a Super Cuts. The place is REALLY tiny - and very dirty. I saw hair and dirty just about everywhere, from the walls to the display cases covered in dust and hair. I saw one of the stylist barefoot and one of the others went out to smoke and came back in, didn't bother to wash her hands and went back to work on some other client. Oh - that just screams professional! And to charge $105 for a hair cut/wash and dry..in this kind of environment and ability is crazy. My hair cut it uneven and despite me telling her what I wanted, apparently she didn't want to listen or know how to do what I asked because this cut will need to be properly fixed now. Thanks for wasting my money. Pros: Nice stylist Cons: dirty, outlandishly overpriced for what you get more

Amazing place to get a relaxer 1/22/2010

I have been getting my hair relaxed for quite some time, and usually it was never done quite right, or the price was just a little too much. I found Revolution Salon through a friend, and it turned out that they did relaxers! I have been getting my hair relaxed at Revolution by Diana for the last two years and I couldn't be more satisfied. It's quick and easy, totally within my price range, and I leave every time with straight AMAZING hair. It's also a great place for a cut and color. When my mom was on the lookout for a new salon I took her to Revolution, she was instantly hooked. She has always left with the most amazing color, and always fun and exciting new hair cuts. If you want great color, awesome haircuts, and amazing relaxers this is the place to go! Pros: Friendly, fun, affordable, unique quaint little place more

this is a really special place 12/20/2009

i've had many excellent experiences in this little gem of a of a salon. from tanning, to hair cut - color- and styling, to mani / pedi and facial, this is an exceptional place to come and relax, and be pampered. enjoy! Pros: parking, accessiblity, friendliness, skill more

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING 10/28/2009

I just barely got back from getting my hair done and I am soooo pleased!!! I have never loved my style this much before. Sophia was my stylist and she did a great job. She listened to what I wanted and she did exactly that. I was super nervous to cut my long hair and to see someone new since I just moved from Salem, but I am so happy! I highly recommend Revolution to everyone!!! You will NOT be disappointed!! Thank you Sophia!!! Also, thank you Jerri for being so helpful and friendly! I will definitely be back!! Pros: Friendly, helpful, stylish, wonderful!! Cons: None! more

The "total package" is right here! 8/27/2009

I've had many services done here: facial, massage, waxing, spray tanning and mani-pedi. I always come home refreshed and pretty! The staff are wonderful and so much fun. I am totally loving their new exercise studio and am so happy it's there! I'm in their morning fitness bootcamp and have taken several dance/cardio classes. The instructors are inspriring and fun. I would strongly encourage anybody to go and try it out, no experience needed! Pros: Great new exercise studio Cons: Can't think of any! more

If You Love Your Hair- You Will Go Nowhere Else But Here! 11/21/2008

I moved to Portland about a year ago, and any woman knows the hair concern... Now who will do my hair? Well, after much online searching, I came across Revolution-so I decided to drive and see what hair-hope I could find. I LOVE the environment, style, and character that the staff brings to the shop. I visit every month or so and always love my hair. Not only do I love my hair- but all I see are smiles and laughter from other customers in the rest of the shop also. Jerri and Dianna are hillarious and very helpful with any crazy question I come up with. I love to do drastic changes to my hair, and Dianna pulls it off perfectly every single time. Not only is the cut, color, and style great; but their motto is, "if you leave and decide it's not right-call us and we'll have you back in to fix it". I can't say enough- and you wouldn't want to read my ramble all day anyways! You will be happy and love your service here, so give them a call and get in to check it out (just don't take my spot next month!). Thanks Ladies, You all Rock!! Pros: style, ambience, service, knowledge, fun more

They do GREAT eyebrows! 11/13/2008

I love this place! I am neurotically picky about my eyebrows and no matter how much I ever explain to people how I want them, they never get it right, except here! The really take the time to do what I want and do it the right way. I love them! more

My Best Salon Experience Ever! 9/28/2008

Hi! My name is Butterfly and after my experience at Revolution, I am a happy camper! I moved to Portland about a year ago and unfortunately my hair stylist search has ended in one disaster after the next. Not to mention a few tears and a hole in my wallet. In desperation I decided to try one last place before chopping my locks completely off. I randomly chose Revolution, well maybe not totally random, I thought the name was cool. Well, I am happy to say that my experience ROCKED!! Jerri Kicks so much butt! Not only did she give me the hottest hair cut I have ever received, but the color turned out perfect! I have black hair, and time after time I ask stylist to add some purple or something fun, but it never turns out. Well Jerri succeeded! Two months later, my color is still shining! (time for a root touch) I have no clue what those other reviews are about-- someone just having a bad day I suppose. I think that Jerri is a talented artist, and fun to talk to as well. I seriously can't believe how amazing my hair looks! I have gotten so many compliments on the cut and the color. Jerri you Rock my socks!! Thanks for the great look! more

Great eyebrow wax 8/13/2008

I went to Revolution Salon based on its rave reviews on Citysearch, and I was not disappointed. I was nervous about getting my eyebrows waxed for the first time because I didn't want too much to be taken off and be left with pencil-thin eyebrows. Betsy listened to exactly what I wanted and I had great looking eyebrows when I walked out. She was quick and it was fairly painless, considering the obvious. She definitely knows what she's doing and is highly recommended. Pros: Expert staff, comfortable room for waxing Cons: Strange location -- it's easy to fly right past it more

THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!! 6/24/2008

I have been getting my hair done by Betsy for a couple years now and she is the absolute best! I moved across the country and had only ever had my hair done by my mom, who is a stylist, and I was very nervous about a new person doing my hair. She made me feel so comfortable and at ease that I now only let her do my hair. The prices are awesome especially for the work she does. She is so friendly and personable, quite the diamond in the ruff. Also the owner Jerri is super sweet too. They always make you feel so welcome and part of the family. I would recommend this salon to anyone and everyone! I'll never go anywhere else! Luv you guys!!! Pros: Service, skill, personalities Cons: Not a one! more

Professional and friendly staff!!! 6/13/2008

I came upon Revolution Hair Salon because of the rave reviews from Citysearch! I was looking for a new stylist and heard Kelly was great... so I booked an apt with her and have been going ever since! She truely listens to what you are asking for and takes her time to do a good, complete job. I have gone to other places where you tell them a look you're after, and they butcher it. I would hands down recommend this place to anyone! The entire staff is great and friendly, not to mention they try and fit me in no matter what they have to do! Thanks ladies!!!!!!!!! Pros: Easy to get an appointment, great relazed atmosphere and super nice folks! Cons: Parking is a bit small, but they have a larger lot in back more

DISAPPOINTING 6/1/2008

After reading all the reviews, I just had to check it out for myself. I am so very sorry I did. Maybe this was an off day for my stylist Jerri. She did not cut my hair even and did a poor job styling it. I had to go elsewhere to get it recut evenly. I also had my eyebrows waxed and that too was uneven and pencil thin. SO VERY DISAPPOINTING, NEVER AGAIN!!!!! Pros: The door upon leaving! Cons: Parking, Skill, Professionalism, Service more

AMAZING! 5/12/2008

I've been getting my hair cut at Revolution for awhile now by Diana and she does the most amazing job ever. The entire staff is really warm and friendly and very attentive to clients' needs -- moreso than any other salon I've been to. I recently had my brows butchered elsewhere and went to Revolution to get them waxed after letting them grow out for awhile. My thanks goes out to Jerri for giving me what may be the best wax I've ever had in my life. I've never been so pleased with my eyebrows before! Pros: Service, atmosphere Cons: None! more

Best Salon, Best Serivce, Best People! 4/30/2008

This salon rocks my socks off everytime I go there. Jerri kicks major booty at everything she does, including running a buissness. I don't know who this "veeva" person is, but I think they are just some poor bitter person who has never sat in Jerri's chair. I'm treated like a princess everytime I go and I go a lot. I'm probably in there getting waxing, facials or hair about twice monthly. I'm addicted to these wonderful people and the excellent service they give. I've recieved practically every service they offer there, and never had a bad experience. Jerri pampers me in the facial chair like I was royalty and all the girls cut and color hair like true artists. I have friends and family who go to them because of my recomendations and still go there because of the great service. So whomever you are that wrote that bogus review, put up your dukes 'cause I'm willing to fight anyone so rude as you! Love, Abbe P.S. Love ya Jerri! Pros: Everything! The atmosphere, the staff, the products, and the service all rock! Cons: Not many parking spaces, but no ones perfect. more

One of the BEST salons around 4/23/2008

I have been getting my hair done at Revolutions for over a year now. I went there because a friend recommended them, and the last place I had been really did a terrible cut... so I went to Revolutions to get it fixed, Betsy, and Dianna have both done my hair and they do the best job ever! These ladies are professionals and know what they are doing. I have watched the owner, Jerry do hair while mine is being done, and she is amazing also. This is a salon with really great stylists. Its a MUST if your need a good stylist. Sharon Pros: The ladies are great stylists and the atmosphere is great Cons: parking is small in front, but do have some also in back more

Best Salon Ever!!!!!!! 4/21/2008

I have been coming to Revolution since it opened and was extremely shocked to read "the highly not recommended" review written on 4/10. Not only have I (and my family) been treated professionally, but the staff is highly experienced and friendly. The atmosphere at Revolution is fun and comforting. I'm sure that if anything bad ever happened to me, the staff there would be the first to admit and rectify it. I have turned many of my friends onto Jerri and her Revolution and they keep going back. I don't imagine that will change anytime soon. Pros: Friendly/fun atmosphere, professional staff Cons: Absolutely none more

DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMENED 4/10/2008

I had my hair colored and cut by the owner Jerri. She totally ruined my hair and my outfit. The coloring was done poorly and the cut was noticeable uneven. She even got coloring on my clothes which happened to be white and of course she didn't say anything. I later found several large sized color stains on my back. I also had to point out things to her that didn't look right or even, but it didn't get any better. She even asked other stylists for advice on what to do. Needless to say my hair was a mess and I went to another salon to fix her mistakes a few days later. The other stylist I went to was sick while looking through my hair at what a crappy job Jerri. She also let me know I wasn't the only one this has happened to and knows of others Revolution horror stories. Pros: Can't think of one Cons: Location, parking, unprofessional staff, repeated attempts at trying to persuade customers to purchase their products more

A Valuable experience 3/3/2008

I was nervous in choosing a new salon. I just moved across the country and seached here for a new salon. WOW! Extremely pleasant! I got a terrific color and haircut! I was gently helped to find product for my hair. I felt completely at ease. Easy to find location for someone who has just moved. For me, the parking was not a problem. I really cant say enough about how wonderful the ladies are! Easy to talk to and extremely helpful. I look forward to coming back again and again. I was offered so much more than just new hair color. I was treated to a beverage if I was inclined. I really felt like Diana listened to me about what I wanted to do with my hair, and had the benefit of her expertise. I appreciate the time that she took to make sure that she was not only going to do what I wanted, but what would work for me. I am amazed at the changes in my hair since I have moved. I have curly hair that just seemed to go completely crazy now that I have moved here. I came in with boring hair and left feeling completely renewed! I have hair that works for me here. By taking the time to get to know me, they have already helped me to make future appointments that will work for me. This little extra attetion is very much appreciated. Thank you! Thank you! I look forward to becoming a long time customer. :D Pros: Atmosphere and Expertise Cons: N/A more
