Seattle >Robert Samuel Salon
Home for difficult hair.
I am one of those odd women who "just don't do hair". Not that I wouldn't like to I just have no patience or ability to work with hair. Unfortunately I have very thick and somewhat unruly hair with part of it very straight and other parts very wavy. I had gone to Gene Juarez for many many years for both my color and cuts. They did a great job but were extremely expensive and I had to see one person for cuts and another for color. My very close friends (I call them my sisters) had recommended Robert to me so I decided to give him a try. On my first visit I was a bit apprehensive but needed color as well as a cut, I decided to be safe and do a basic all over color, my cut was free.
I told Robert I don't do hair and needed an easy wash and wear type cut but still wanted it to look current and cute. He nailed it first time out. I now have new salon that does better work than Gene Juarez for a lot less money and I only have to see one person. If you need someone to guide you in choosing the right cut and color this is the place. My hair always feels great after a color and never feels like it was over processed, and the look is just fabulous. I come from Bellevue to get my hair done and I hate when I have to come to the city but Robert is worth every trip.
Thank you Robert!
worst hair experience ever.
I had to get my hair cut and color corrected before being in my friends wedding. I had very dark brown dye on my hair and a good 7 inches of grow out (my hair is naturally medium brown). I called the day before to make sure that they would be able to lighten the dark and then dye it all to be a rich brown. I was told that they could and were having a special and the haircut would be free. I was elated. I went in the next day and told him that I wanted to keep my length add some layers and I wanted bangs. I also confirmed what I wanted done with the color. As far as the color is concerned he put some chemical on my head, put me under the dryer and walked away for an hour. He rinsed my hair and proceeded to the hair cut. He asked if I wanted shoulder length hair and I emphatically said "no"! I asked about the bangs and he told me that my hair would never lay right and refused to give me bangs. I got my hair chopped shoulder length takin about 6-7 inches off when I only wanted a slight trim (and my hair was perfectly healthy) no bangs and I was done. Where is the color you ask, well $140 for some peroxide, a free (bad) haircut and I was done. I was informed that to color my hair would only be an additional $70. Never again and I strongly suggest NEVER going here!
BTW when I got home I cut my own bangs and they are adorable!
Great deal for students!.
My friend and I had back to back appointments 2 weeks ago with Iris and we absolutely love her and love our hair!
She listened to exactly what we wanted and made us feel comfortable. She is definitely an easy stylist to talk to while she cuts your hair, very funny and wise -- we actually had some really good conversations! Really refreshing compared to other salons and stylists that I felt really forced you to chat.
Also, when we went we were the only customers so we felt like we had the salon to ourselves. Super relaxing.
And the best part is that my friend and I are SPU students and so instead of a $45 haircut, ours were only $30! That makes my pocketbook much happier. I'm just sad that I just started going to this salon and I'm a senior!
My new regular Salon.
So, I'm usually the victim with the salon horror stories....with the terrible cuts, and bad service...
But coming to Robert Samuel salon was such a relief!!!!
From the outside it looks really nice, and pricey...so even though I live on Queen Anne, I never went in, until yesterday. Surprisingly, the cost was low for an upscale salon!
My hair stylist was TINO, and he was amazing!
Very kind, and provided me with A+++ service. He gave me the perfect bob cut, with the layers just how I envisioned it. He also added in some abstract cuts recommended by him, and it's awesome!!!! I can definently trust his vision from now on! I am so thankful that I found my regular stylist/salon....it is such a relief. So if you are tired of crappy service, and terrible cuts...go to Robert Samuel. Highly Recommended!!
best place in seattle for a hair cut. Robert Samuel Salon is my favorite place to spend a few hours being pampered. The owner Robert gives the best cuts and color in the city and is able to make everyone feel special. I have and will continue to recommend this salon to everyone I know.
Best haircut. Robert knows EXACTLY how to cut & color my hair & that's not easy! I wouldn't ever think of going anywhere else. A small personalized salon w/ lovely plantings in a pleasant neighborhood. You can even park in front!
Mediocre. Terrible haircut, will not suggest to anyone. The cost was awful for the poor quality of style provided. It does not fit my sense of style and is just hideous and will take months recover from.
Not the place for men. Women may have a great expereince here, but as a guy, I recieved a so-so haircut and paid $25 bucks more than at other places. Definitely not worth it!
A great salon!.
I love this place. The staff is talented and friendly. My hair always looks fabulous when I leave there.
I highly recommend it!
Great Salon. I have been searching for the right hair stylist and finally I found one. Iris is talented and personable. She suggested some great ideas in how to treat my hair and maintain it. I would highly recommend her. The staff was all friendly and salon was clean. Would definitely return.
