About Gene Juarez:

Today it continues under the guidance of a visionary team—a group of experienced artists and an executive team who are energized by the opportunity to write the next chapter (in tandem with owners Evergreen Pacific Partners). What hasn’t changed is the spirit of the brand, and the simple principle that relationships—and the powerful connection we have with our customers—is what defines our success. At Gene Juarez Salons & Spas we are deeply committed to your beauty and well-being. We guarantee every Gene Juarez experience for your ultimate satisfaction.

Gene Juarez Locations:

You can find Gene Juarez Salons & Spas in Alderwood, Bellevue, Downtown Seattle, Kitsap, Northgate, Redmond, Southcenter, South Hill, Tacoma and University Village. (For additional locations- Gene Juarez Academy and Training Salon- directions and more info about each please click HERE)

My Thoughts: Gene Juarez very generously offered me the opportunity to review their salon with a coloring service. I was extremely excited because my mom loves Gene Juarez Salons and Spas and is always raving about her experiences there. After checking in I was handed a robe and room and they took my coat and offered me a drink, which I gladly accepted. The high level of service combined with the friendliness of the staff highly impressed me. After only a few minutes of waiting my colorist brought me back to her chair where I was again offered a refill on my water and a few magazines to read. The colorist was very knowledgeable and worked hard to please me with the end result. Recently I had a bit of a bad experience with an at home box coloring kit and my hair was a bit darker then I would have liked with red tones that I didn't care for. I was VERY pleased with the end result of my hair- a nice medium-light brown color with lighter tones, I was very happy not to see those red tones anymore. My next visit will be to their spa. The atmosphere of the salon was nice and relaxing but I needed to use the restroom and they let me use the one in the spa lobby and I am now dying to get in there! Everything from the music, scents, and colors, being just a step away from the business of the mall outside it’s doors Gene Juarez’s spa is the perfect picture oasis of relaxation.

Eww I hate before and after pictures- the before ones always look so bad. I went with my hair all yucky and unwashed (which is preferable for a coloring) so this is what I look like with my hair just pulled out of a pony tail, the picture of me with the dryer of my hair even looks better then the before picture :).
