I moved from the mid-west this past 3/19/2012

I moved from the mid-west this past fall I have not been able to find a good hair person, until this past weekend! Kellye is extremely talented and took the time to really understand what I wanted. Not only did she give me exactly what I was after, but also showed me how to recreate the look myself. I love the versatility and I'm so excited to get highlights next week! I highly recommend her especially if you are looking for a change. more

This place is a filthy dump! The girls 1/26/2012

This place is a filthy dump! The girls doing pedicures do them out of buckets and the tools they used were not properly sanitized! I looked around and there was dirt and grime everywhere! This place needs help! more

Sparkle Beauty Bar - The Best in Portland! 4/26/2011

I have visited so many hair salons over the years, and dumped so much money on hairdos that really were hairDON""TS, it makes my head spin! All the hype, the austere surroundings, the styled staff I've become so accustomed to...well, to make a long story short, I found the REAL DEAL at the Sparkle Beauty Bar in NE Portland. In the little blue house behind the Sparkle Beauty Bar sign, magic happened to my hair! As a woman ""of a certain age"" (60), I got used to the hair helmet, and the oddly colored hairstyles from beauty professionals around Portland. My mantra of ""don't cut it short"" was ALWAYS met with short hair as a finished product. WELL, it came as a wonderful surprise to me that this little, local hair salon also did hair extensions at an AFFORDABLE PRICE! Lo and behold, I now have the (real) hair of my dreams, long and beautiful! Not only am I estatic, I receive compliments and exclamations of ""Nice hair!"" My stylist , Jenni, is the absolute best....patient, kind, and well-versed in all manners of hair...My highest hair style recommendation goes to Sparkle Beauty Bar. Visit there, and walk away with the best hair style of your life, like me! more

Top Quality Hair Cut 4/14/2011

I had my hair cut by Tami. She gave me the best quality hair cut I've had in a long time and I usually go to higher quality salons. She really takes care to make sure that the cut is done precisely. I highly recommend that you give Sparkle Beauty Bar a try. Thank you Tami. more

So Proud of these Girls 10/5/2010

I am so proud of all of the girls at Sparkle. As one of the original owners who started the salon back in 2006, and are no longer involved, we never imagined it would be continued and live on once we moved on! Sparkle I'm sure, has obviously been through some re-imaginings lately, but what I love about these girls is that they continue to keep a very certain spirit alive and well, that the salon was born to have: Sparkle is NOT your typical salon. Sparkle is a place where real people live, work and play. These people just happen to be some of the most talented hair extension experts, nail techs, stylists and waxers around. This salon isn't supposed to be about ""Look at me, look at me! I'm the pretty stylist."" This salon was born to be a relaxed environment, for REAL women who work, live and know that a haircut is about making a client feel comfortable and welcomed...NOT just excepted by the majority. The salon knows acceptance is something you must find in yourself, and they are there to help you along your journey! Sparkle is a salon that participates in the environmental future, the community and LIFE. They are there to show you that, sure hair is important, but you don't HAVE to have a certain haircut, a certain ""look"" to feel good about being you. You just have to learn to be comfortable with yourself. This is not going to be a salon for everyone, there are many clients and personalities out there who enjoy the lack of talk, the everyday hired receptionist, the cold surroundings of just another Pearl District salon. However, if you are looking for an intimate, special, real and honest old school beauty parlor experience with an update, this will make you smile. That makes me smile, and hope that Sparkle will always continue to thrive, grow and live on, on it's own. Responsible Beauty. more

Sparkle is relaxing and awesome! 9/29/2010

I have been going to Sparkle for almost four years now! The staff is very professional and care about their customers. Even after I moved to Silverton, I make the commute (two hours round trip) because of the excellent service! I originally started going because of an ingrown toenail (which I have not had anymore thanks to Melissa!) but continue to go because of the relaxing nature of the experience. I highly advice trying it out...you will be very happy! more

Sparkle is one of those places that makes Portland great. 9/10/2010

Sparkle has an awesome staff that always gives me a great hair cut. it's obvious they take pride in their work and listen to what i want. The shop is a cute house set off the street which creates a really pleasant atmosphere. The stylists are fun to talk with and it makes the whole experience a joy instead of a chore. Sparkle is a great place, try it out! more

Talented and upbeat staff creates a great atmosphere 9/9/2010

I have been going to Sparkle Beauty Bar for over a year when the time comes for a hair cut and an acrylic nail fill. All of the hair stylists are up to date on the latest styles and are experienced no matter what hair type one has. At the end of the cut my stylist always makes sure that I am satistfied with the end result. When I decided that I wanted to treat myself to acrylic nails I knew exactly where to go. The nail tech is very talented and well knowledged. She makes sure that I am comfortable and I always feel I am in the company of a friend. The conversation seems to be never ending between the entire staff and their clients. Whatever the service is you seek, every one at Sparkle Beauty Bar will make sure that your every wish is catered to and you leave feeling like a pampered goddess. more

awesome customer service, a great experience 9/8/2010

i was greeted as soon as i walked through the door. all the stylist where very friendly and nice.i was offered a beverage as soon as i sat down.. i went in for a haircut, i was a little unsure of the exact style i wanted but my stylist was very helpful and gave me great advice. the stylist made sure to ask me if i liked my cut or if i wanted to change anything, they were very reassuring in the fact if i wanted to change something with my style i could, it made me feel like they weren't just trying to rush me out the door. at the end of the service i decided i wanted to get some waxing done, they were more then happy to help me with that service. the wax room was very clean and they did a great job. i would highly recommend this salon to others more

Unskilled Stylist & Unprofessional Salon 8/23/2010

My stylist was incapable of a simple bob. Basically it was just a trim, not too complex, but she managed to give me a hair cut that is probably the worst I have ever had. It is as if she listened to everything I asked her to do, and did the exact opposite. Every day I look in the mirror and curse the day I walked into Sparkle Beauty Bar! Not only was my stylist completely incompetent, but the atmosphere in this salon was so unprofessional. There were at least four other stylists just sitting around and gossiping. One of them actually had her little dog running around and when her appointment arrived he had to hold her dog while she did his hair! Cute name, great location are the only things going for this salon - don't be fooled like I was. more

Finally! The hair stylist I've been waiting for. 10/16/2009

After searching for literally years in Portland for an affordable but good hair stylist. I went to see Kristi Nouri at the recommendation of a friend. Krsit is fairly new to the Portland area, and even newer to Sparkle Beauty Bar, but it is clear she will have much success. 1st time cuts with a new stylist are always a bit scary, and Kristy talked me through every step: From really taking her time to go through color schemes and styles with me to doing a dry cut at the finish to make sure every part of my style was as I wanted it. She made the entire experience a pleasure. The end result, a head turning hair cut and color that I absolutely love. All I can say is its such a relief to have found a stylist I can trust. I am extremely picky about my hair and would truly recommend Kristy to anyone. Pros: highly skilled, affordable, great costomer service more

Great job on hair for my wedding day! 8/12/2009

Ann Simone did an awesome job on my hair for my recent wedding. She was very attentive to my requests, and I felt like she really cared about her work. She was very easy to talk to, prices are great, and the shop is really cute. I got lots of compliments on my hair, and it held up all day perfectly. Thank you! ~Emily more

really great 8/7/2009

I went to the Sparkle Beauty Bar for the first time with my 2.5 year old son. They were all really friendly and Simone did an amazing job cutting my hair and his. We had so much fun and I couldn't believe how reasonably priced she is. Cutest place! Love it.\r \r Pros: friendly, fast, cheap more

THE BEST! 6/18/2009

I'd been seeing another stylist (at another salon) that I liked, but didn't LOOOOOOVE. I decided to give Sparkle a try. Keelie cut, layered and colored my hair. It's fantastic. I have never been more happy with my hair and how it looks. She listened to what I wanted and didn't want and made the perfect cut. I had NO idea exactly what I wanted it to look like but somehow she knew. Pros: People that know how to do hair! more

GREAT EXTENSIONS! 6/8/2009

I had extensions done by Ann Simone a few weeks ago, and they still look great! The best part is they look NATURAL!!!! Pals of mine say ""Something is different, but I can't put my finger on it...."" ""It's my hair, it's thicker and about 4""-5"" longer."" The extensions are even the same texture as my own hair, not straight and not curly, perfectly matched ""wavy"". Ann Simone used the ""Hot Locks"" hair on me. These extensions are at at a mid-price range, and made extensions a possibility for my budget. Many salons just answer the phone and say ""Yeah, we do extensions, and they're $1,000."" At Sparkle Beauty Bar, you get a consultation first that explains the different types of extensions, the history of several types of hair applications, and you have many choices of what will work for your hair, and your budget. I love my new hair, she did a great job, she taught me how to care properly for my extensions (they do require extra work, and special shampoo, which was also not over priced). I am looking forward to my follow up appointment! Thanks so much Simone! Pros: Ann Simone KNOWS hair extensions! Cons: Parking (only sometimes) more

AMAZING!! 5/23/2009

I am so amazed with Ann and her staff at Sparkle Beauty! They are hands down the most talented and professional of hairstylists and I am so proud that I can be one of their customers. They pay attention to detail and know how things are meant to be done. I feel at home here and can't wait to go back :) more

Amazing People, Awesome Styles! 2/23/2009

I came in a few days ago to have my hair cut for locks of love and they went above and beyond. I gave them free reign to cut and style my hair in a way that they thought would be flattering. Simone layered my hair and gave me bangs, I now have the best haircut I've had in years, and it was free! I also made an appointment to have my makeup done and got really good tips on what colors work with my skin and how to correctly apply....well, everything! I will definitely be going back when my hair gets long enough to cut again. Pros: Ambience, Friendly, Knowledgable more

Sean at Sparkle Beauty Bar is the BEST! 1/28/2009

Sean gave me the most amazing haircut, color and style....EVER! You can definitely tell that he knows the latest cutting and coloring techniques. I went in wanting something modern and edgy and Sean gave me exactly that. I am truly impressed and couldn't be happier with my new look. I have gotten so many compliments. Thanks Sean!!! more

Simply the best! 8/15/2008

I have NEVER been so consistently happy with my hair and have NEVER received so many compliments as I do since I started going to Sparkle almost 2 years ago! Keelie is awesome! They are friendly, non-pretentious and I appreciate that they keep themselves knowledgable about trends, the environment, etc. I also appreciate that Keelie has an opinion to offer. I've gone into salons before, asked if a certain cut or style will work for me and I am treated with a blank stare, a nod, then a DISASTER! Keelie has talked me out of bad choices, offered good alternatives and is always willing to make changes as necessary. I don't know what I'd do without Sparkle! Pros: Skill, atmosphere, customer service, training/education, choice of product, charitable affiliations Cons: Parking, size, appointments are sometimes hard to get. Plan ahead!! more

Fantastic hair extensions 6/26/2008

I've suffered from thinning hair for years. I'd never considered getting extensions until just recently. I just got tired of trying to style my thin, fine hair. I couldn't do anything with it. I started looking up information about extensions online and then discovered AnnSimone here in town. I went in for a consultation and she surpassed my expecations. I only thought that there were just a couple of types of extensions to choose from. It turns out there are several kinds and she found the type that would work best for me; an integration. I had been worried that extensions might damage the remaining hair I have left, but this was VERY non-invasive. Very gentle on my own hair. I've been very pleased with the natural looking results. I was afraid that the change would be very dramatic and artificial looking. My friends that don't know that I got extensions have all complimented me, saying how nice I look lately: Did I lose weight? Did I perhaps get a new haircut? It's subtle difference, but to me it makes all the difference. I look forward to trying a different length soon, and maybe a different volume? Thanks so much AnnSimone! more
