Elizabeth is very talented, meticulous and gives you exactly the style and color you want! I will continue to request her for her skills, great personality and attention to detail.
Terrible place. The student that did my daughters hair for her wedding was clearly not ready to do clients hair. Instructor hardly ever came around to check on her. It took over 8 hours just to color her hair!!! Your kidding me right...Then they charged more then what consultation was set at. The gals who answer phone refuse to give me Owners name/number and are rude and hung up on mr 3x. DONT GO THERE...
I had Alla do my nails and condition my hair and she was amazing! She was really friendly and did a great job. Prices are affordable and service was great.
Took kids for hair cuts. Great service and friendly staff.
I bought a Groupon for about $26. & decided to give this beauty school a try because it is close to my residence. By the time I left I ended up paying about $84. I did have a 2 Color weave but this is a RIDICULOUS price for a beauty school! Their sign in the lobby says the owner started this school as a “for profit” school...well, they are definitely making a profit & I doubt if the students get any portion of what they are charging clients for services. My color turned out looking NOTHING like I wanted & I even took a picture of my hair colored the way I always have it done. Grace at the front desk was completely unprofessional & rude the first time I came in. They wanted me to come back because the student didn’t have time to finish my cut. Thankfully, the manager, Tracy, was helpful & she & another student cut my hair. I came back & they did re-do my Color & I'm much happier with it, but it still isn’t what I wanted. I did give the student a $10. tip because she worked hard at trying to get what I wanted. However, Tracy said they would refund my a portion of my money because during the 1st color I was charged for 2 extra bowls of color because the color “timed out” because the students do take longer. I told the student I didn’t want a refund if she would put the chemical on that protects the condition of your hair during coloring, but she did not do this when it was re-colored...even though she said she’d use the same products. In total it was $94. for color that isn’t bad, but not even close to what I wanted. Lesson learned. I WILL NOT GO BACK! If I had known it would’ve cost this much I would’ve gone to a professional salon. I paid $50. for the color I had done in the picture that I showed them of how I wanted it done, & that was at a PROFESSIONAL salon! I’ve had my hair done at Paul Mitchell, Portland Beauty school, Beau Monde & Phagans & never paid over $70 even with the tip! This school charges students a LOT in tuition (I know because my daughter considered going there) & they still want to charge the same as, OR MORE for services when these are students?! I don’t mind students making a mistake on my color if I’m paying $50. but for almost $100. I at least expect it to turn out somewhat how I wanted it to. I can say Grace was friendlier the 2nd time I came in. I was about to just walk out very angry when she was so rude the 1st time. I still feel completely scammed & ripped off...their Groupon makes you think you’re getting a good deal & you end up paying more than what you would at a high end salon! Absolutely unreal! The only reason I even gave them 2 stars is because the student was very nice & did try her best. Also, the manager, Tracy, is VERY nice & professional! If it wasn’t for her I would’ve just left very angry & wouldn’t have gotten anything for what I paid. At least, they did fix it to where I am happy with it...it’s just not even close to what I wanted or what I paid for!
I am very pleased with my hair stylist, Emily. She is doing a great job. I look forward to her cutting my hair on a regular basis.
Chantha is going to be a great stylist and she did a fantastic job on my hair and beard. The whole experience was great and the people were so nice
Appointment was for a facial. Came early to fill out paperwork (one being that they aren't responsible for any possible harm done during facial process, yikes!). Told me my appt was with Lexi but after 15 minutes the woman at the front asked Roger to fill in. 15 minutes later roger comes to get me (now 30 minutes late). I told him my one hour facial would have to be cut short due to babysitter availability. After I get in the room I tell him when I need to leave by and he understands. After I finally get started roger tells me what he will be doing then he gets a phone call and leaves the room for 5 minutes. Now my facial can only last 20 minutes. I came in early to ensure I could get the 1 hour facial but had it for 20 minutes. Not worth the money I spent even if it was a Groupon. Will never go back.
The new owners are amazing! They strive to give you the best possible education, so you will be set up for success post graduation. They want the best for you and it shows. It's owned by a family who has been in the industry for generations and their experience is unrivaled.
I came in the other day looking for a school I wanted to go to after highschool. The second I stepped into the school everyone exuded this amazing up beat energy. All the students and teachers seemed love being there. Everyone was happy to talk with me about their experiences and talk about what it would be like for me when I enroll there. I absolutely loved my experience talking to everyone there.
Well where to start, I moved from Vegas to Wilsonville a year and half ago and needed a new place to get my hair done. I picked Summit Salon from the internet after doing some research. Nancy has been cutting my hair as well as coloring and waxing my brows. I have seen Nancy grow through the months with her techniques and feeling much more comfortable with herself. Nancy has been doing a better job each time that I have visited the salon. I have been able to talk to some of the staff as well as the students with each visit. It's nice to walk in somewhere and have the staff and students recognize and remember you. It puts a smile on my face and I alway rebook before leaving for my next appointment. I gave four stars because I always fell that there is room to improve in everything.****
Worst haircut I've ever received. There are random chunks of hair that are shorter than all the others and stick out awkwardly, and the layers were done incorrectly so that the bottom layer is actually shorter than the top. I now have to wait for my hair to grow out before I can get it cut properly, but it is safe to say that I will not be returning here to have this done. Only giving two stars because the person who cut my hair was very nice and gave great advice on hair care.
I have been here a few times now. Jennifer is amazing. The students and staff are friendly and create a fun and relaxing environment.
This is actually Barb Reynolds. I love Summit, have always done an EXCEPTIONAL job. I have Emily as my hairdresser and just love her. She always does an excellent job, and my hair always looks great.
My name is Linda and I had an appointment with Brandon Long on Wednesday, Dec. 28th for highlights. I am thrilled with how well the color came out!! He is a terrific hairdresser and listens to what you request and takes the time needed to do your hair correctly. I am hoping that when Brandon is done with his education at Summit Salon Academy that he will be nearby so that I can follow him to his new location!!
Alana did a great job on my hair! She was friendly, thorough, made sure I got exactly what I wanted, and was careful to consult with the instructor every step of the way to ensure that my hair didn't get destroyed in the process. Now I have the princess hair I always wanted :) just a heads up, because they are learning, plan on it taking a little longer than you may expect. They do a great job though!
Went there with a groupon that was for a cut, style and full highlights. My appointment was at 9am and I left at 2pm... thats 5 hours... granted it is a school and they are learning but I had to down grade my full highlights to partial highlights and no style at the end because it had taken the student 5 hours already to do partial highlights... I was looking around at the teachers like why aren't you helping her and making this go faster? IT SHOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN 5 HOURS TO DO PARTIAL HIGHLIGHTS AND A TRIM..... went home and stopped by Sally's for toner cause adding toner at the salon was extra and not included in the groupon I guess... so stupid.. sorry but I won't go back to that salon school unless I get someone with more experience. Make sure you clear your whole morning and afternoon if you want your hair done there.
Jennifer did my hair today. She was excellent at asking me questions and the instructor questions though the whole process. Good job Jennifer.
I don't review as much as I should, but I really want folks to know how special Summit is and what my experience has been here. Two weeks ago, when I came for my color, things went wonky during processing and it didn't look as we had hoped. That happens. What doesn't generally happen is that the manager and another stylist jumps in to help make it better, staying well past their shifts to make it so, with a friendly, cheerful and fun attitude that made it feel like a good thing. :) Today, they had me come back to give me a free style since we didn't get to that part last time, and I'm even more impressed. My stylist Stephanie (ask for her, folks!) is just as excited about my style as I am, and her talent, friendliness, and professionalism makes me feel lucky to have found her! (and no, I don't work for the salon or anything like that - true story!) And the instructor Josh is just what I'd want in an instructor if I were a student here. He asks questions of the stylists to get them to understand the process and to become the artists they are more fully. If you're a student, consider that. And if you're a client, know that you're in good hands. This place is great, and the people are smiley and friendly. Couldn't recommend it more!
I have been coming to this salon since March. Alla is amazing! I have had facials, hair cuts and high lights with her. Her work is flawless. I have referred my sister, mom and friends to her. Best customer service and sweetest personality!
Havra did my haircut style and conditioning , She was patient , learning and interested in the work. She did my curls very perfect. Good place must try
Natalie is fantastic. My hair looks and feels amazing and she is so nice. Definitely recommend this place.
This school/salon has gotten a beautiful and modern facelift! The new owner has brought life back to this awesome school!
Everyone is friendly and always has a smile. It's a great place to get your hair done!
Diane was great and the whole experience in the salon was good. I rated you only 3 stars due to the fact it was hard to get thru to correct number to make an appt. I called and left a message with a Mario and also another director asking how to make an appt and never got a response returned so that is why you only got three stars. The people actually doing the hair styling should have 5 stars.
I enrolled in this school and they got back to me so fast! The process was fairly quick and they were very nice with any questions I had or they’d go into detail about everything so I had no questions. An amazing school! Can’t wait to start!
The student Chandler Adams did my color and cut today. The color turned out phenomenal, I have paid a fortune in the past for this no yellow blonde and this turned out amazing! I couldn't be happier.
Great people wonderful job.
this is update to my first review that i said its not recommended at all ,but the owner (Mr.Chris) contacted me and we solve the problem, I do appropriate his professional attitude ,wish him best of luck
Jennifer Rabellizsa was fantastic. My son loves his haircut. Thank you
I usually get my hair cut at a high-end men's salon. I decided to try Summit Salon Academy on a whim, and I'm SUPER glad I did. Camille did an amazing job. Just as good as the cut I get with a high-end stylist and it only cost about 1/5 the price. I'll be going back! The stylists here are students with varying amounts of time on "the floor" so expect that services may take a little longer than usual. It's definitely worth it though. And the teachers assist the students as needed to make sure everything is done to salon standards. When I went in everyone was really professional, friendly, and super nice! I re-booked with Camille for my next cut and this is now my go-to place.
Very friendly environment, great prices, and love my hair color!
Really happy with my cut and style! The deep-conditioning treatment was amazing and Camille did such a great job with the cut, beard-trim and style. I will definitely go back. Ask for Camille! She knows what she’s doing and has an amazing sense of style. She gave lots of great advice and recommendations.
Working hard to help students Excel in their future career as a successful stylist.
Poor customer service
So excited to start the hair design program. Brooke is amazing
Had an awesome facial last week. So relaxing!
Jennifer followed suggestions from me. Was open to her instructors feedback. She did a beautiful job on my hair and the result is "I'm a happy client and my hair looks amazing"!!!
You guys, I just had the best and most relaxing facial to date. Elizabeth was very gentle but provided pressure when required. I’m leaving this salon with glowing skin, and feeling so relaxed and without stress. Thank you Elizabeth for this great experience. :) hope to see you soon!
I have been to Summit Salon academy twice and both times Taylor has been my aesthetician. She’s a wonderfully calming person that puts me at ease right away. I love Taylor’s skills as a facial aesthetician and will be going back for further appointments
They're students... They're learning. The instructors there are always there to help and it's a very professional environment even though it's still a school. The new owner Chris is amazing and cares about each and every person and will do what it takes to go above and beyond for his customers. Go in with low expectations so you can be wowed by the amazing students and their talents so you keep coming back, So many amazing individuals here!
Emily worked her magic--retouched my brunette roots and transformed me into a blondie!! Thank you babe!
There are big differences between the locations. They are not all owned by the same people. Tigard is a great location and the staff is terrific! They got new management staff that is on the ball.
Always a great experience here!!!
Terrible place. The student that did my hair was clearly not ready to do clients hair. Instructor hardly ever came around to check on her. It took over 2 hours just for a hair cut! Your kidding me right! The student didn’t even get the highlights even close to my roots. Almost 2 inches away from the root! Never again will I be coming back here. It’s so bad that I’m writing this review from the salon chair!! Clearly the student needs more instruction. She had no confidence in herself from the minute I sat down and it showed. It also made me feel anxious
Carly was great! Very gentle and attentive. Exactly what I wanted for a cut. Everytime I come here, everyone is great. The instructor's are super fun and helpful and make you feel welcome!
I had a great experience at Summit. Corrie was my stylist and she knew exactly what I wanted. I have very long hair and wanted to boost my color without damaging it. My hair has tons of shine and is still healthy. Thank you Corrie!
I haven't been there BUT tomorrow I have an appointment to get my hair done and a manicure! I hope and pray that my experience goes well! I am taking my son's girlfriend to get her nails done! We are going to get beautiful for my sons Graduation tomorrow night! Look out world Gary Ford will be graduating from HS!!!
Dropped my wife off for a service and 9 hours later they still haven’t finished. Never heard of anyone taking 9+ hours to do someone’s haircut. This is unbelievable. An entire day worth and she didn’t even get her hair cut. Will never come back here again.
I got a facial today from Emily. She did a great job. It was a nice way to add a relaxing hour to my day!!!
Staff is so friendly and professional . I will absolutely schedual again . They are very cutting edge on style .
Thanks for the awesome tour!
Today, at Summit Salon Academy I had blonde foils and a haircut. My student stylist was Christal. Christal did a beautiful job, just perfect! Getting the right shade of blonde can be difficult but Christal got it perfect. I would highly recommend her
I got my haircut by Nancy yesterday and she was awesome! She cut off about 3-4 inches and gave me a super cute A-Line cut. I could not be happier and Nancy was very sweet! Thanks :)
Just had a facial done by Morgen mobile at the summit salon academy And it was great! Can’t wait to go back again it was so relaxing and Morgen is such a nice young girl
Just had a great facial by Andrea Hill. I recently had back surgery and needed some pampering. She did a great job, I left relaxed and glowing! I've had facials before, and always like them, but this was special. She really is gifted. I'm going back in a couple of weeks just for her!
Absolutely fantastic salon! Nothing like your grandma's beauty school. Ali and Josh helped me feel beautiful again!!
My experience with Alex who was my person does great job and she spends time on your hair I was happy with the results and plan on getting my hair colored soon
It was great. Customer service was on point. Lisbeth was the bomb; very friendly and helpful. Plus, you can't beat the prices.
I purchased a groupon for this place. Scheduled my apt. then the day of was canceled on cause the girl was sick. They wanted to reschedule for like 2 or 3 weeks further out when I already waited a couple weeks to get in. Then.... i made it in for a 2nd apt and halfway through the girl putting in my highlights up and left cause she wasnt feeling well. They wouldnt finish my cut and color and wanted me to reschedule yet again. This place is horribly unreliable and I dont plan on ever returning!
Emily did a great job! Real sweet and attention to detail.
Didnt asked for anything extra beside toner, which I expected to pay. Stylist would just inform me what she was doing to my hair, ended up with a big bill at the end. She would only tell me what she did after she added products and said nothing about additional costs. And hair turned out nothing like the color I showed
Excellent service for an unbeatable price. My girl Emily and the instructors are always willing to go the extra mile!
Friendly environment with affordable pricing. Professional staff and patient yet thorough instructors. I have already made a second appointment at the Tigard campus for additional services. Thank you Jennifer for my new look, just in time for the holidays!
This school has many opportunities for students and the education is great!!!
Had a Groupon for a really good deal, they were super busy which being around the 4th of July is understandable. Schedule my appointment everything seems fine. Wake up on the day of my appointment to a voicemail saying they have to cancel because the stylist called out, and to call to reschedule. Fine I work customer service so I know things happen. Was able to reschedule for the same day at an earlier time cause they had a cancellation. Enroute to the salon and hit traffic have my friend call to say we will be late, I can hear the lady being extremely rude when asking how long "a little late is". I understand they need to know but there are so many better ways to ask then being an ass. She pushes the appointment out another 15 minutes. 8 minutes to arrival and my phone is ringing, have my friend answer as I am driving, guess who. "We need to cancel again because the stylist we thought was coming in actually isn't." Again trying to be understanding but the receptionist didn't do herself any favors by being rude again when my friend was repeating what was going on to me. All in all if that is how they are gonna treat people at the desk I don't want to see how they are when you actually make it in for an appointment, if you can.
I came here on...12/29/16The pricing was afforable, the people are really nice and friendly. I had a person by the name of Corrie..She was really Great, she did an awesome job on my hair, she did EXCATLY what I asked for. I will be going back to Corrie the next time I return. I had a wonderful experience. Thank You!
I definitely recommend this salon.
Wonderful experience getting my hair cut, conditioned and styled. Also decided to throw in a waxing on my eye brows. All turned out great. The student was Daniella. Thank you so much. Great prices.
I feel that my experiences were very educating and I learned a lot about makeup also I'm excited to learn more can't wait start class on the 20th and would like to follow up with some more but it's an awesome class and I really enjoyed it thank you Summit Salon Academy
This place is awesome! Kati or Kaitlan, gave me the best haircut of my life! Go see her!
I had a good experience at Summit Salon Academy. My stylist was Corrie who was so sweet and funny! The only reason why I gave a 4 star versus 5 is because the bayalage color came out a tad darker than what I wanted it to look like, but I was assured that with a few shampoo's the color should lighten. Other than that, the teachers are there to help the students whenever they need it and everyone is very sweet. Will be coming back here again! Thank you. Plus you can't beat the pricing!
Summit Salon Academy is AWESOME!!! The staff is out of this world. Hawraa is fabulous!!! She does the best facial’s!!! Super friendly and makes your face feel baby soft!!! Will always go to Summit Salon Academy!!!!
I had a partial highlights and haircut done by Emily. She was very attentive and concerned about getting my hair right. It turned out great!
I have been to Summit Salon Academy a couple of times to be a model for a student. Not only is the staff genuinely friendly and full of personality, the environment was comfortable. Jennifer R, a current student there, is amazing! Despite glitches with equipment, apprehension and dealing with the pressure of passing a test, she truly delivered quality service! I definitely recommend checking this little gem out!
Everyone here is great
For awhile I didn't know what I wanted to do and just moved up here to Portland, met a hair stylist and she was amazing and helped me so much she went to this school which now a few months later will be going to in August. I'm excited to go here! The teachers are amazing, went in today to sign some papers and got a style from it! They check in! The students do amazing work too! This place is awesome and I can't wait to begin my hair career! Also if you want a style done, just stop by they'd love to have you!
Worst place to go and learn nails. Spent way too much money and never got to actually learn nails due to air ventilation. They never had air ventilation so even doing a perm should have not been allowed. The owner is more about how much he's making than whats important for the students to learn. I honestly think they should shut down. They dont have enough of the instuctors for the students. I learned the person that was instucting me just got out of school when I started and she didn't have the right license to teach. Shady school all the way. They also judge you for being in a position of not wealth. You have to know students are starving students unless their parents are supporting them.
I have been coming to Summit for some time and always have great students, then they all graduate. Last time I was fortunate to get Emily. She is so good, we tried something different with color, always a little scary, but she did a great job and was very confident. I have my next appointment with her and will continue to ask for Emily until she graduates. Thank you Emily.
I came in for eyebrow wax and Emily made me FINE. She even did a facial after and put me right to sleep. Go see her, she's chill
Sitting in my car crying because a really sweet girl didn’t know how to cut my hair and she butchered it. The place was lovely and super nice people but I’m left heartbroken and enraged that it will take me 6 months to a year to grow back what she cut off. On top of that they wanted to charge me 20-50 extra on top of my Groupon that I was not aware of when making my appointment. Please have better help they said there was only one instructor for over 15 students.
i have been coming to Payton since May and she’s done wonders on my hair!!! she’s such a joy to be around. She’s really helped my hair come back to life after all the bleach and terrible things happen to my hair from my previous salon. I’ve had haircuts, color and styles and even facials done by her. She goes above and beyond to make sure you look like a million bucks when you walk out of there. I definitely recommend hair and this school. The instructors are amazing and they have a clean and lovely Facility. if I could give this school 10 stars I would.
Saw it on Groupon. Lucky I called before I scheduled to ask some questions. The receptionist told me to not buy the Groupon and she would offer that price. Well needless to say I came in for my appointment. I was suppose to get a cut and highlights. Two hours later left with nothing. I never knew a hair student could be so scared of hair. She seemed uncomfortable and did not know what she was doing. Not secure in herself. Needless to say that was scary and after two hours and two tests she ran on my hair I left. Just don’t go there.
Update on my last review. I got a Groupon here in February, I have had to wait 6 weeks for appointments that were cancelled on me with out telling me, reschedules that as I'm heading to them I'm called and cancelled on. A friend worth it the Groupon was supposed to go with me and we're both just done with the terrible system they have in place. This is an awful example for the students on what is expected after school.
Taylor took my dream and made it a perfect reality! We were on the same page about everything! Wonderful teachers to help with hers (and mine!) questions! And at such a great price. Loved watching her (and the staffs!!) reactions to my reaction during the reveal! Love!
I went to the one in Clackamas Town Center-- I had gone about a year ago when they told me that my hair was damaged and they couldn't give me a perm until I let all the damaged part grow out. They wanted me to go THERE and get it cut regularily... I had a friend cut it every so often for a year and then went back to get my perm... They said that I had to COME IN THERE EVERY-OTHER-WEEK (at $6.00 EACH TIME) for TWO MONTHS to get my perm...that would be $24.00 & $24.00 for the perm...hmmm...that's $48.00 IN TWO MONTHS for a perm!!!! When I LOUDLY protested they told me that the people who didn't tell me I would have to come in THERE were gone... "TRUST US" they said--"THOSE OTHERS ARE GONE". I TALKED TO A MANAGER WHO TOLD ME THAT I'D BE BETTER OFF AT A "REGULAR" SALON WHERE THEY DIDN'T USE STUDENTS AND PROBABLY HAD OTHER (BETTER?) PRODUCTS"... GEE, I WONDER IF THAT MEANS THEY USE CHEAP JUNK? I guess for $48.00 I WILL be going to a "normal" salon and get BETTER PRODUCTS USED FOR LESS!!!!!!!! There is NO place on their site for customer feedback (I wonder why?) and even their Facebook page reviews are ONLY from SATISFIED students!!! LIVE AND LEARN!!!
This was first experience at this school for a facial. Robert was amazing! Well worth it!
Alla did a fantastic job with my color, and recommended product to keep it looking good after I left the salon. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Thank you!
I had the worst experience with the instructor who kept on saying that we don't have time for this and that and had horrible behavior. Worst customer service by the instructor. The hair was done nice but I could not get the desired color. That was really disappointing.
Very nice people!!!! Highly recommend
Amazing community. Less like a traditional salon and more like a community. I went in for a shadow opportunity to be able to see the school and learn how they run (I'm a high school student looking for after high school opportunities) and I am so interested in being a part of their family at Summit Salon Academy. Rob did my haircut and it was excellent along with also making me feel comfortable with letting someone besides myself have control of my hair for the first time in months, even with my high anxiety and being super ticklish when having my head shaved. Definitely will be somewhere I keep in mind for future services. Photos are from Robs Instagram page
I sat there for 3 hours on a simple all over color and it wasn’t the color I asked for. I wasted $60 for my hair to look the exact same as when I walked in there and I won’t be going back.
This is probably the best salon I have ever been to. I have been here twice to have my hair cut and colored. Both times, the instructor and student did a great job and were a pleasure to be around! Jennifer did such a wonderful job with my balayage hair coloring!! She was like a professional and really cared that it turn out the way I wanted it to. Lovely experience and student- and I am very happy with my hair :) Good atmosphere, good hair, what more can you ask for from a salon? Thank you!! :):)
I liked other students but Maria was not professional and never explained what she is doing, not people friendly at all. I wanted two color highlights, but she never paid attention to what I wanted, which took her 4 hours but I didn't get what I asked for. I highly recommend her to really communicate with each customer while doing their hair, ask and tell what you're doing in every step.
Corrie was great. Helpful, good communications, friendly staff.
Just finished an amazing facial with Andrea. The head massage was to die for.
I have been coming here a while.. Brandon did my color ..came in a grey ghost wearing a hat ..left feeling like a million bucks ...thanks b/Bridget McCarthy
Rene did a fantastic job with my cut, color and style. I totally recommend Summit Academy
