Growing up in Seattle I've tried a fair number of the local salons. At some of them i felt as if the staff were always pushing me to be more 'creative' with my hair (I like it long and straight) or had too much turnover. After having my 4th stylist leave in 2 years from one popular salon I asked a few friends for a suggestion with the hopes of putting an end to my hair cutting madness.
The result of the simple request - a salon that i can say lives up to all the recommendations I had heard, and one that I can't ever imagine leaving.
The staff have always been great, helpful, friendly, talented and quite warm and welcoming. i would recommend giving them a try, you too might be as happy with them as i am.
