I have to say that I love this place. I have had two really great experiences here- and each time with the same stylist-SHAUNA. I adore her. Why? Because she is SHARP as a tack, has a fantastic sense about people, and gives a mean haircut. She loves working with curly hair- which I have- and she gave me a beautiful and functional cut that was exactly what I wanted. She also cut and bleached a strip into my teenage son's hair- and this was the first time he let anyone NEAR his hair in ages. She was so cool with him. Gave him a great style that he liked and they talked music for a good hour and a half while she worked on his hair. Also- Shauna didn't just cut and style my hair, she taught me how to style it myself in a way that she knew I would since I don't spend much time on my hair. I love Shauna and you will too. She knows what's up with your hair. She knows what's up.
After a visibly botched all over color at another place in Milwaukie, I looked on Yelp for top reviewed places in Portland. I selected Venus Allure.
The stylist, named Shauna, not only had to correct the mess left in the wake of my days old hair disaster, but had to make the outcome look realistic, natural and professional.
Happily, Shauna succeeded at it all! This meant something special for me because, as a blind person, I can not directly observe whether the work is well done and must go through my day until I can find someone honest and clear-eyed enough to tell me honestly. My daughter filled that role this go-round and said that the work looked amazing.
Thanks, Shauna and staff for your welcoming and professionalism. I plan to re-visit Venus Allure regularly.
