Been all over the place having my hair 2/7/2012

Been all over the place having my hair worked over and have finally found a hair home. Everyone there is talented and professional, but my go to girl is Melissa! Added bonus she caters to myhair neurosis with patience... You are in good hands there and the entertainment street side makes the trip even more worthwhile! more

Tessa is a Miracle Workers! 11/18/2011

After decades of altering my looks to meet the demands of my job, I semi-retired. I went into the Bob Shop entirely by chance and met Tessa. She took one look and then worked miracles. She was able to take everything I had left after years of neglect and make me actually look pretty. It is like being reborn! Thank you!! more

Great Stylist...and I'm a happy girl! 9/12/2011

I came to the Bob Shop on a recommendation from a friend. Having not had the best previous experiences with hairstylists in Portland, I was a little nervous. But upon walking in, I was immediately put at ease by the friendly front desk girls. My Stylist, Melissa, was fantastic! She was great at listening to what I needed and gave great advice when it came to taming my unruly mane! I walked in ""just ok"" hair...and left looking like I stepped out of a fashion magazine! I look and feel amazing! My color turned out more beautiful than I could have ever asked for, and my cut is easy to style! Thank you so much, Melissa! There are no doubts that I will be returning! Happy Happy Girl! more

Fantastic Hair, People and STYLE! 6/27/2011

The Bob Shop is really fabulous! It's beautiful, professional, pleasant atmosphere, great service...loved it! April was my stylist and she was really amazing. She listened to what I wanted, created the most beautiful highlights and the cut was exactly what I was looking for...which isn't easy when you have long curly, unmanageable hair! She also suggested some fabulous products for my curly hair that remoisturized it, made to easier to style and smelled delicious!! Thank you Bob Shop and April!! I will certainly be back! more

Very Professional 6/22/2011

I love going to get my hair done at The Bob Shop, April my stylist has never done me wrong and her professional and kind personality makes it even better. I am growing my hair out and love layers and a flat iron and every time I leave my hair flows like silk. She is incredible! more


I have the greatest stylist, Melissa Styles, who has done my hair for years! She always listens to exactly what I want - and the styles and colors are always so much better than I expected. If you want to look and feel like a million bucks - try Melissa Styles - you will be so happy you did! more

Reliable, attentive and skilled service, APRIL is terrific 2/25/2011

I have been going to the Bob Shop for over 20 years, believe it or not. How many businesses STAY in the same place for so long? or even stay open? What this means is success through reliable, quality services. April is my hairdresser par excellence. If I had an airplane, entourage, and performances to give, April would go with me. As it is, I work from home, so don't need the plane, but see April every 6 weeks for hair color and cut. She has given me a youthful styling, with great results to the color challenges of turning gray and white hair to blond with red highlights. Very reasonable rates. I get many compliments on the cut and the color. Thank you, April, for taking care of my head! more

Melissa . . .Mmm NOT so good afterall 8/3/2010

Recently I had an appointment with a stylist named Melissa, who I was told had an availability and could get me in right away. I now know why she had availability, she's obviously inexperienced and does not have clients. When I got an appointment I assumed that I would be getting a top notch stylist who would give me what people come to expect from The Bob Shop - Great Hair, Amazing Talent, Professional Attire and Exceptional Customer Service, However I received NON OF IT! I asked for simple layering in my haircut and advice on what to do for my color. I left with big gaps in the layers and what looked like someone had hacked away at my bangs. In the beginning we talked about color and I knew something was wrong when she gave me advice that was exactly the opposite of what every other stylist had given me before so I decided to just have her do the haircut. I will Never go back to the Bob Shop again, its disappointing 'cause so many friends have said nice and wonderful things about this salon, they've obviously been to other stylists there who know what their doing. I was way too shocked and embarrassed to complain right then because she seemed really frustrated when I questioned her about the cut. In the end I went to another reputable salon and had it fixed, they told me i should at the least call the manager and complain.\r Letter to Owner of Bob Shop to follow. more

Love, Love, Love Melissa 7/7/2010

I have been a loyal client of Melissa's for quite some time and have followed her now to The Bob Shop! I just wanted to let all of you know that she is an amazing stylist! She always makes me look fabulous and is very attentive when it comes to listening to my needs and concerns! Since I've been with her my color has never been more beautiful and my haircut is always easy for me to style and maintain! \r The Bob Shop is great, as well! Reception is always positive and polite, and the salon has a great vibe and team atmosphere! I love Melissa and I love it here, too! So, if you aren't yet a follower, better get on board! \r Thanks, Melissa....see you soon! Pros: Great Stylist, wonderful vibe in salon, fantastic experience Cons: parking more

William is amazing! 5/11/2010

What he did to my hair bagged me a six-figure keeper who never said a WORD to me before! I couldn't believe it! I get compliments on my hair from complete strangers, so of course I have to tell them about William-carry his cards with me, next to mine :) Pros: Great stylist, funny, smart & REALLY cute! Cons: Still looking more

Love My Color Eric! 4/12/2010

I was referred to Eric from a friend because I needed my color fixed. I was a little worried at first but Eric put me at ease immediately and made a few suggestions. I must say I am very impressed with the results. I would definitely recommend Eric for cut and color. It really is the best experience I've had at a salon. Pros: knowledgeable, laid back, confident Cons: no wine or beer more

Brazilian Keratin Treatment 3/28/2010

First I have to say I love April, who gave me the treatment. She has done my hair for several years and is fantastic. I trust her implicitly with all my hair choices which is why I trusted her with this treatment. April gave me the keratin treatment which involves heat setting keratin into hair for lasting results. No more flat iron. All I do is blow dry and go and it looks like I have spent a lot of time on my hair. It is genius. The treatment last several months and my hair is healthy and smooth. I have no fly-away hair or frizz. I love it. Pros: Long lasting results, smooth hair. LOVE IT Cons: Procedure takes a few hours-pricey more

Eric is simply a color expert! 3/23/2010

It can be hard to stay with the same stylist when we all move around so much, but I will hunt Eric down no matter where he is! We first met a couple of salons back about a year and a half ago and I've been dedicated to his color and styling services ever since. If you want a no-nonsense, educated approach to hair from someone who knows classic to cutting-edge and everything in between, and if you're craving individualized attention to help you look and feel your very best, Eric is the professional you've been looking for. Pros: Uncompromising quality, honesty, and style! more

Andrew is fantastic! 3/10/2010

He was very attentive, and listened to what I said. My color came out amazing. It's like he read my mind! I felt like all of his attention was focused on me. He's very kind, personal and not at all snooty. Go to him! You won't regret it. Pros: Great customer service, right on the bus mall Cons: Parking. Music. more

Eric is the best 12/21/2009

I went in to get a hair cut but I didn't know what I wanted. It was the first time I met Eric and he decided I needed a color too. I left transformed and I have never felt better about a visit to a salon. I love Eric !!!!!!! Pros: he listens and really knows color more

Shannon is the best!!! 7/23/2009

i've been getting my hair cut and colored by Shannon for years now and I just wanted to tell everyone that she is the greatest! She is the best listener and has great ideas that are up to date if you ever want a change. All my friends and family (male and female) see her and we can't imagine seeing anyone else. In addition, she is a sweet and caring person and my visit is always enjoyable. The rest of the staff at the Bob Shop are very friendly and personable. Pros: downtown, awesome staff more

I have the cutest nails in Portland. 11/6/2008

I see Debbie for my nails once every two weeks. I'll never go to anyone else. She builds a professional friendship with her clinets that is more valuable than the perfect nails you have when she is done. You get a great window seat the looks over the spa. The whole staff is very enjoyable and friendly. I love the reminder call I get the day before my appointment. When I leave I feel ""like a new woman"". I might be cutting back on a few things around holiday time but I will not stop going to Debbie. Pros: Plenty of street and garage parking, professional staff, easy to find location Cons: none! more

Great cut! 10/16/2008

I work in the US Bancorp tower and just recently started going to Barb at the Bob Shop. She gave me an awesome cut and I was very happy with the service. I have been jumping from stylist to stylist looking for one that would cut my hair the way I wanted it cut....and now I finally found someone who does! Go see Barb! more


I have been going to Barb for years now and she actually just moved over to the Bob Shop. She has always done an amazing job on my cut and color and I always feel like she takes care of me while I am there! She is the only hair dresser I have ever had that I actually look forward to going in and getting my hair done : ) I highly recommend her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pros: I leave feeling gorgeous! Cons: None!!! more

Yvette is a TREASURE to behold! 6/16/2008

I have been going to Yvette at the Bob Shop for over 10 years. She is the only person who can manage my coarse thick unruly hair and cut it into a sleek Bob every time! People stop me on the street constantly and ask me where and who did my hair. I finally hand out cards because I don't have time to talk to everyone who compliments me. \r AND Sam who waxes for me is THE BEST!!! So, see these two excellent beauty people !! They are TREASURES!!!\r Thanks for over Ten years of excellent service!!! Pros: Call Reminders, BEST Hairstylist, Easy location, Friendly Staff, Quick Service Cons: Sometimes high turnover with Reception. more
