Seattle >The Gilt Edge Society
Salon Nervousness?. As in, I was always one of those people that couldn't relax and enjoy the salon experience. Having stylists that are more interested in being stylists rather than someone who, you know, listens to what you have in mind, and even maybe takes a little time to get to know you. I saw Glenn (the owner) for extensions, and I swear from the beginning it was like I had always been going there. They're in a cool location in Belltown, and there is no pretension, no loud dance music or huge front desk manned by someone with an earpiece and better things to do than talk to you about, you know, hair. Glenn's a total professional, easy to talk with, work with, and knows, not just hair, but STYLE. He clearly individualizes his approach and really seemed to want to help my hair look great in the context of my personal style. My salon beef is gone and now I look forward to going, finally my salon experience is what it should be- relaxing, enjoyable, and confidence-building, rather than a vanity-related chore. So if you're like me, chill out and go to Gilt Edge and love going to the salon again.
I found my new stylist!!.
I purchased a Groupon, which was offering cut/wash/style for $25. Since moving here I have not really found someone to do my hair and was only getting my hair cut when I flew back to Michigan. Um, that is not so convenient.
The salon itself is kind of minimalist, has really cool huge canvas paintings on the walls and uses one of my fav product lines, Kevin Murphy. It wasn't like an uppity salon, but felt more like you were getting your hair cut in a gallery or something like that.
I thought I'd just get a basic trim, as you never know with a new stylist, but I ended up walking out missing 7 inches and with seriously, one of the best cuts I've ever had (and people keep complimenting me, which is always fun.)
Cadance was my stylist and she was super nice. She had some ideas and wanted to take a lot of length off my hair. She sat with me and talked with me for a bit about what it would look like, kind of played with my hair to show me what she was thinking, etc. She definitely took her time with me, which I appreciated as I was scared to death to cut my hair.
She started cutting longer, then asking me if I was OK with that length, if I wanted to go shorter, etc. She did that seriously 3 or 4 times. She wanted to make sure I was comfortable with how it looked and I don't think she wanted me freaking out about how much hair I was removing.
She made sure it was perfect before she finished. Also, she does free bang trims in between cuts, which is a bonus.
All in all, for the first time ever I don't have crazy long hair but I am very happy with how it looks and I think found my new stylist in Seattle.
Sierra is the BEST!!!. Sierra is the BEST hair stylist period!! She has an amazing gift for color and she's incredibly artistic. The hair cuts are always PERFECT. Plus she's a GENUINELY wonderful fun great person!!
"So fresh and so clean, clean". Not going to lie, Cadance gave me a PIMP @ S S haircut. Shes knows her Sh! T and takes her time. I actually got laid that night because my hair is so rad now. I recommended The guilty Edge Society and Cadance... Very processional and clean establishment. Place is awesome!
BEST HAIRCUT EVER!!!!.
Glen walked me through my hair cut and explained everything that he was doing and why. Showed me how i could tame the beast aka my hair. He is truly one of the best hair stylist i've had who's been able to get my hair exactly the way i want it.
I'll most def go back and would definitely recommend anyone to go there :)
Best Hair cut and color ever!. Glenn has been doing my hair for about 3 years and since then at least once a week I am stopped by someone and asked who cuts my hair. When I first went to GlennI told him " I maybe in my 50's but I dont want an age appropriate hair cut"! My hair is always fun, a little edgy yet cut perfectly.
Great Cut. After multiple friend recommendations, I finally went to see Glenn yesterday for a cut. He took the time to really evaluate my hair and my expectations. He suggested helpful products and styling tips, but was never pushy. My hair looks and feels fantastic and I can't wait to see him for my color. Go see him immediately if not sooner!!
The best haircut I ever had. I have had short hair since I was 12. I am now 40. I usually go to the best salons and best hairstylists, but I was never overwhelmingly happy with my hair. You know how it is. It is never quite perfect. I had my haircut with Glenn for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and it is honestly the best haircut I ever had. It is absolutely perfect. It looks darling, and every hair is just as long as it needs to be. He also gave me good product recommendations, again for the first time ever. Usually I end up finding something for myself that I like. Glenn is AWESOME. Go see him immediately! :-)
Steven is the brains behind my look. I went in there a year ago and said do what you want to me! Steven dyed my hair black. (Something I would have never done on my own.) And I loved it! I feel like I leave with my very own look. I am happy everyitme, he never lets me down. I have never had a better haircut ANYWHERE!!!!! I get constant compliments on my color and cut.
Glen is the greatest!!!. I have been to The Guilt Edge Society for hair extensions, color, and cut and had an amazing experience each time. I have never had trouble making an appointment around my busy schedule. Everyone who works at the Guilt Edge is extremely friendly. The vibe of the salon is professional yet fun and spunky. It is by no means pretentious. They have extremely resonable prices and I recommend anyone and everyone to make an appointement with one of the lovely hair stylists at Guilt Edge!
The owners and staff of The Gilt Edge Society would like to take this opportunity to thank everone for their generous praise and kind words. This last year was exciting and fun and we look forward to many more years serving you. Here's wishing everyone a prosperous new year ,.Thank you all so much.
