Salon Borealis - hair coloring - blonde.

I LOVE my hair! This is the third time I have visited Salon Borealis and walk away incredibly happy each time. My mom lives in Seattle and now only has her hair done by Michael when she is visiting Portland because he does such an amazing job coloring her difficult hair. While I was in the salon, two women were there who drove all the way from Yamhill just to get their hair done. Highly recommended, fun atmosphere, and fabulous color and cut!

The truth is that I cannot stop saying ‘Wow.’ It’s what I’ve said since I walked out of your salon, Michael. You are an artist, detailed and au courant in every sense, taking the time to explain your procedure so very thoroughly. Your ability to mix warm and cool tones to create an edgy yet natural look has produced nothing short of a gorgeous look that works, both in the office and onstage with the band! The effect has done wonders for my skin tone. You were spot-on, darling. Love the new color line from Italy. Thank you, thank you, for being you. xo!

I’ve been going gray since I was 17 and have been all “natural” hair colors under the sun. I came to Michael at Salon Borealis with the challenge of wanting to find a way of being my natural color mostly, but with a bit of pizzazz. Over the last 5 months, I’ve enjoyed beautiful haircuts by his hand, and creative color and highlight work that is quickly bringing about the transformations I seek. Accolades from my family (and a cat call on the walk home from the latest appointment) have me thinking that I’ll be facing my next milestone birthday in style.

I LOVE my cut and color. I’m a lady in my early 50’s who has tried many different hair styles and colors. I came in with yellow hair with grown-out dark roots, and Michael understood what I was concerned with and asked just the right questions to put together a look that was flattering, professional, and easy for me to maintain. He is a great communicator and I think that makes all the difference in the world. His depth of knowledge is evident when he explains why something doesn’t work, especially when it comes to color. He is one of those few people that have the ability to take your complexion, eyes, shape into consideration. This guy is a master at what he does. Jovial, funny and just a down-right a great guy. I will not go anywhere else now.

Michael has been cutting my hair for years. He has a talent that is incomparable. I never have to worry when I sit in the chair. I always step out of his shop feeling beautiful. Michael, thank you for making my hair famous!

My hair was in dire need of a do. Michael gave me the most flattering haircut and the color was totally gorgeous. I will definitely make this one of my future hair style stops!!
