From the time I walked off of the elevator onto the fourth floor of the Charles F. Berg Building, I knew I was in the hands of a team of stylists that take their work and their quality of service seriously. Owned by Portland styling mavens Fahti and Danielle, this salon feels light, open, airy and comfortable. \r
Front desk service was cordial and competent. The capable and sweet head receptionist, Sarah, did not need to peek at the calendar to guess my name correctly. I was outfitted with a custom-made gown and a drink before I knew it. \r
Once settled, Nicole's color service included a comprehensive interview, and the result showed that she had both listened closely to my wishes, and that she had the ability to create something over and above expectation. \r
My experience was finished off with a cut by Danielle, who seems to do her best work when she gets lost in the task. Shears flying, Danielle created a look and a shape that is comfortable, versatile, and looks great, even while growing out. \r
Overall, I found the entire staff to be warm and personable. My cut and color are almost two months old, and I can still work with it. While the prices weren't the lowest around, it is certainly a good value, as I would have had to go in for a second service by now if it wasn't for the capable work of the Fada ownership and staff. That is the true test of good hair service, and they passed with flying colors (and cuts)!!!
Pros: Thoughtful design, service, and a comfortable experience
