I received such a terrible hair cut I cried for days. I asked for a trim but was given a new style that turned out to be choppy and ?butch?.

Do great color and can cut most hair well, besides long, curly hair 12/15/2010

Let me start of by saying that Gaylynn is an amazing colorist. My new stylist totally stayed with Gaylynn's color. I also understand that cutting curly hair (especially long, thick curly hair) is a specialization. Unfortunately, nobody at the salon specializes in cutting curly, long hair. Most of their clientele seemed to have straight, short hair. After a lot of frustration at my frizzies (even the anti-frizz, and other products, from there weren''t helping), I finally had to switch salons and see someone who specializes in long, curly hair. I learned that my hair was being cut in a classic way, instead of in a way that most flattered my curls. The frizz was partly because of my curls not falling right. I also learned that I needed to be using a shaping gel, in addition to an anti-frizz gel. Gaylynn never recommended this to me. That being said, Gaylnn is a master colorist and all of their stylists do great work on most hair types. I would just suggest more training in curly hair, bringing on a stylist who specializes in curly hair, or maybe politely referring curly haired clients to stylists elsewhere. more

Always Great 9/23/2005

I've had horror shows of haircuts before. Even places that cut it great once mess it up the next time. Blades is the exception. The stylists always listen to exactly what I want, are honest about styles that will work with my hair and face and pay great attention to detail. I love Blades and tell everyone about it. more

Great service, no attitude, no tipping! 6/6/2005

The best haircuts I've ever had have been at this unassuming salon on a quiet strip of NW 21st. The stylists are all employed by the salon, not renting stations, and the whole place is closed one day a week for mandatory training sessions. Better than that, stylists aren't even allowed to accept tips, so your $45 haircut actually costs $45 and you don't have to deal with that awkward "How much is enough?" moment at the end of your cut. Recommended absolutely to everyone. more
