    Lovely salon and Missy did an awesome job on my trim! Excited for my next appointment

  • Nov 22, 2020 by Juli W.

    The entire experience of going to BlueBird salon is a wonderful immersion into self care.  There is a sense of joy, fun and collaboration among all of the team members there.  Every client that walks out has a HUGE smile and a little extra pep in their step because they feel special.   My stylist, Kristina Kahm, is a GODDESS.  She spends a good amount of time understanding what I like, what I don't, and comes up with a great solution. Best part - she doesn't offer anything I DON'T need.  She is also INCREDIBLE with color - bringing out tones I didn't know were possible!  My hair has never been healthier or more beautiful. HIGHLY recommend!!  #treatyourself!

    Horrible horrible experience. Rude, racist and completely overpriced. Set me up with a newer stylist who completely took away all of my longer thicker hair. Asked for layers but she completely took away from the inner depths of my hair which makes it feel completely empty. I am extremely upset about the service provided, it takes a LONG time for my hair to grow and I care a lot for the health of my hair. I had heard nice things about the salon but it seems to have a cult following with not much talent. In addition, they are not welcoming to persons of different ethnicities it seems which was again off putting. Very very upset will never ever go back

    I have come to Kristina two times now to fix my hair and I have to say she is just the best hair stylist I've ever encountered. She knows exactly what I want and has worked miracles on some (what I thought were) hopeless cases. She's very calming, comfortable, and easy to talk to. When I get nervous she's so kind and understanding. I am so happy I found her because I wouldn't be able to see my hair ideas fully realized without her.

    I had a wonderful time with Sammy on Monday! I've been going to her for 2 years now:) she really knows how to cut thick hair and style it correctly which I'm pretty selective about. Plus Bluebird is incredibly neat, clean, and beautifully decorated! You should definitely check out this darling salon! They have done a good job implementing all of the covid policies as well.

  • Nov 12, 2020 by Jordan D.

    I've been going to Bluebird for about a year and would highly recommend Sammy! She always takes the time to listen and understand exactly what you want. I've never felt rushed during an appointment and Sammy is fun and easy to talk to. She's helped me both lighten and darken my hair, and I love how it turns out every time. I always feel amazing when I leave the salon!

  • Nov 12, 2020 by K W.

    I just got my hair cut and colored by Sammy Williams and I can recommend her enough! Every time I get my hair done by her I feel like a whole new mama! She made me feel completely at ease with all the restrictions put in place from the county/state. If you're looking to feel like a million bucks- Sammy is your girl! The salon is absolutely adorable and in the best location!! They have the best products and the sweetest staff.

  • Nov 12, 2020 by Hannah P.

    Bluebird has always taken such great care of me! Everytime I go I see Sammy and she always goes above and beyond to make sure I leave the salon feeling great. Just recently I dyed my hair darker and the next day was feeling like I needed some highlights to lighten it up (too dark too soon haha) and Sammy squeezed me in between appointments to make sure I'm feeling great about my hair. Not only does she do a great job but she's fun to talk to. She even texted me today asking if I'm still feeling good about my hair. Will definitely keep coming back and seeing Sammy.

    Curtis is my favorite hair stylist and I have not needed to go anywhere else in the 4-5 years. He provides great conversation, styles my hair to perfection and I always leave with my confidence higher than the sky. 100% recommend Blue Bird salon if you want to feel beautiful. Also sitting in a massage chair while someone washes your hair is a luxury I don't plan on moving on from anytime soon.

  • Nov 10, 2020 by Tori M.

    Last week I got my hair cut for the first time in quite a while and Paige was friendly, genuine, and helpful! I never know what to really tell stylists and she was checking in the whole time making sure I got what I wanted. I'm enjoying my haircut still. There were some issues with scheduling and another stylist running behind two days in a row, causing me some frustration but I'm so grateful that Paige got me in last minute. Thanks again!

  • Nov 06, 2020 by Joanna B.

    I had the best experience at Bluebird Salon with Kristina Kahm! I came to her with a horrible haircut and brassy, half-dyed hair. Half my hair was my natural black/dark brown, and the other half was yellowing and bleach damaged. Kristina was able to fix both my color and my cut, giving me adorable layers and picking the more gorgeous chocolate black color for my bleached hair. I honestly couldn't be happier! Kristina was so kind and thoughtful the whole time, and really listened to what I wanted. I'm already looking forward to the next time she does my hair!

  • Oct 28, 2020 by krystinah Nicole

    Both times I've scheduled an appointment here for a hair cut. The hair stylist assigned to me was a no show.

  • Oct 14, 2020 by Stacy F.

    The best salon in SLO for a reason! I love, love Kristina K! She is a Rockstar and such a professional. She worked her magic on my hair and made me feel beautiful again. Thank you Kristina

  • Oct 06, 2020 by Alexandria B.

    A few weeks ago I went to Bluebird Salon for my first time and I absolutely LOVED it! Kristina Kahm did the best job bringing my hair back to life! I showed her pictures of what I wanted and she delivered exactly what I asked for. Kristina took so much time with me and my hair and I can't thank her enough. I love the way it turned out and I get compliments almost every day on my hair! Thank you Kristina!

  • Oct 05, 2020 by Amaris B.

    BEST HAIR OF MY LIFE!!!!! check out stylist @hair_by_kristinaK on Instagram. If you have any doubts on achieving the hair color of your dreams -- she's your gal! Kristina spent hours with me, listened to exactly what I was hoping my hair could look like, and then executed the most beautiful artistic technique to get it perfect. She is a color genius! The staff is kind and hospitable and the salon is super chic and clean. Everything about my experience was professional and amazing. Props to Kristina's assistant as well -- she was on it, practically a mind reader, prepping and checking and there the whole time to see it through. They worked really well together and I'm so so so so so happy with my hair. I've been trying for ashy/mushroom/ grey hair for 6 plus months and today it happened!!! Thank you Kristina and Bluebird salon, you took my hair from bronze lion king to a ashy beautiful queen!! THANK YOU!!

  • Oct 04, 2020 by Kaylyn K.

    Update- Skylae Johnson is the stylist who is to blame for this damage and negligence, if avoid her at all costs if I were to have one piece of advice. Sorry you think this is harassment, I get messages asking which stylist to avoid and so figured I would lay it all out. And I haven't a lever done anything to my own hair, I've always paid big money to have professionals do their job. This would be like going into surgery to have a toe repaired and waking up without a leg lol. Just trying to warn other people who might not want to lose all of their hair. Refund doesn't help grow the hair back. Thanks. This is not the first review I've left for this salon. It has been one full year since I got the worst "chemical cut" I have ever seen. After one full year of taking all the supplements available and putting all the best reviving hair products on my hair is barely skims my shoulders (The bottom layer of hair anyway, the rest reaches my ears finally.) but I still have big bald spots and places my hair won't even grow any more. The hair dresser who did this still has a job at this salon, which for me says a lot about the establishment itself. Also, her license has been delinquent for months and she's still doing hair here. My beautiful hair was ruined and won't be how it was for several more years. Be weary of who does your hair here. If I had one wish in the world it would be to go back in time and not come to this salon. I've spoken to the owners and although I received an apology finally (and refund for the service.) I still do not feel it was enough for what happened here.

    I had my naturally blonde hair dyed brunette professionally here after several years of debating the change. The dye was "semi permanent" and I was told would last 6-8 weeks, which is the only reason I pursued the change. 7 months later... still very dark brown hair that was fading to an unappealing reddish color. I had a consultation in order to correct/strip the hair dye and the salon wanted to change me upwards of $400 to strip my hair and couldn't guarantee complete color removal, which I obviously declined. I deeply regret ever getting my hair done at this salon and will be suffering the consequences for years to come despite my original color costing $200+.  The stylist also did another clients haircut while my hair was in foils (due to improperly dying my hair in the first place) which was beyond stressful as too much time in foils can ruin/burn your hair. Overcharged for very poor outcome and I will not be recommending services to anyone!

  • Oct 01, 2020 by David S.

    Just had my first haircut in a very long time. I had Tina (I think that's the name I heard through the mask) and she did an incredible job. Very nice salon. Very clean. Everyone had masks on. 100% recommend it and I will be going back to her for future cuts. Thanks!

  • Jul 13, 2020 by Leanna Martin

    Leah was amazing! I absolutely love my new haircut. She was very helpful on helping me figure out a routine for my curly hair.

  • Mar 06, 2020 by Mariana Silverman

    I came in to this salon to get my eyebrows done for my birthday! The last time I came in, I was super impressed and happy with the professionality of the store and the outcome of my brows. However, this time I was super let down. I came in and the woman asked what I wanted to get done to them and I specified “a clean up.” She started the wax and then had me look in the mirror, all the while talking on her iwatch and not really paying attention to anything. When I looked in the mirror, I realized she had reshaped my right eyebrow, and immediately said that that was not what I had wanted. I ended up with a cleaned up left eyebrow and a reshaped right eyebrow, and then the woman still charged me for a full reshaping even though they clearly were not up to par. I left feeling wronged and upset because I had expected more and was surprised that it had gone so badly. Expected more!

    Unfortunately I had an awful experience with one of the stylist and also with the company for having her as a makeup and hair stylist for weddings!

    I do want to preface I don’t like leaving bad review and had to sit with this for months after the wedding so I can decide if I want to leave this review.
    My wedding was in October and it’s been 4 months and I still strongly feel this post needs to be posted.

    Looking out for all the brides out there!

    My hair stylist and makeup artist was JZ..Jen Zagala...
    She claims she is a makeup artist and she needs to stop that now! Blue bird do you hear that... Stop that because there are brides who dream of there wedding day being perfect and when you claim you have a makeup artist yet they have no idea what they are doing it can put a huge Drench on one of the most important days of a girls life.

    I worked hard to make my wedding day perfect and the one thing that didn’t work out was my makeup and hair. She. Was. Awful. !!!
    At one point I looked in the mirror and truly had cracked white eye shadow and Halloween eyelashes.. I immediately was in shock but kept my cool...
    kindly payed her, rushed her out and my girls took all my makeup off and started to do my makeup themselves.
    My wedding started 2 hours late because of it all and my hair was average . I could of done better to be honest.
    Anyways, I just want all the brides to know they should not trust who this company hires and if you are going to use them make sure to do your own research.
    It was my wedding day and I deeply regret not doing more research to find an amazing hair and makeup stylist. You can really see it in the photos now..for goodness sakes I had no false eye lashes on my wedding day. It was disappointing... but my wedding was still magical. At the moment I was just simply in bliss marrying my love nothing could of upset me but after months of seeing the photos and thinking about it, it is not ok...
    Don’t claim you are a hairstylist and makeup artist if you don’t know what the heck you’re doing people.

    I recently had my hair colored and cut by Ivory and she is amazing. I can't recommend her or the salon enough. The receptionists are welcoming and kind and the facilities are modern and comfortable. Ivory easily took my mess of processed bleached and colored greenish hair and made it look stylish and back to my natural color. It feels more healthy than it did before we started and has a great shine. If you are looking for a salon in town give them a try!

  • Feb 01, 2020 by Annette Beck

    Curtis Campbell has been my stylist for quite some time. He is excellent and I highly recommend!!

  • Dec 27, 2019 by Allison Warren

    This is a very pleasant salon to go to for any reason! My favorite part about it is that they offer champagne to their clients! How fun! All the stylists are super sweet - just be sure to make it very clear what you want / are expecting. Thank you Bluebird for being a great business and giving me a great experience. I'll definitely be recommending this place to others!
    Have a happy new year!

    I Started going here a month ago and can't be more pleased. Went with hair to my shoulders and wanted to go back to old shorter look. Evan cut it perfectly to the way it was without ever seeing how it was. I relocated from So Cal and hit the jackpot with Evan

    I've been to Bluebird Salon about 4 or 5 times now over the past two years. Every experience has been nothing but positive. Immediately upon walking in, I'm greeted and asked if I'd like something to drink (wine, water, etc). The salon is always sparkling clean and decorated in an inviting and fun way. My first appointment was schedule with whomever was available and I was lucky to get Evan. From a basic trim to a dramatically different cut, he has been incredible each time. He understands different types of hair and exactly how to work it to give his clients the most flattering cut possible. He listens to his clients wants and needs. I also appreciate the extended evening hours that Bluebird is open; It makes it possible for us full time working people to get a quality cut without having to miss work. So if you can't tell by now, I'm a huge fan and highly recommend Bluebird Salon!

  • Nov 22, 2019 by Shannon M.

    I had hoped my experience would have been so much better but my first visit to Bluebird left me in tears and still unable to sleep. The cut I asked for should have been straightforward and I provided pictures of my own hair in the cut. Instead of long, smooth layers I ended up with an overly thinned out, piecey shag that is going to take months to grow out. Check in was awkward and unclear where or who I was supposed to check in with. I was asked if I wanted anything to drink over the shoulder of another guest the receptionist was helping. The drink options were not shared with me and the water I requested was forgotten. It's a pretty space but the cost, in ability to execute my requested style and the subpar guest service leave me disappointed and frustrated. I would post a picture but I can't even look at my hair right now.

    I recently got my eyebrows microbladed by Ashley and I couldn't be happier. She took her time with my appointment and didn't rush anything. She listened to everything I was saying and really cared about her work! I would recommend any and everyone to come to her. She truly has a passion for what she does and it shows in her work!

    If you have curly hair or want someone who's down to earth with some funny stories Shelby Urban is the way to go. I've been coming here for about 6 months for toner and treatments and she is my favorite. She remembers who I am, tells me her crazy stories, and is a genuinely kind person who is absolutely AMAZING AT HAIR. I never knew how curly my hair was and she's taught me a lot.

  • Nov 03, 2019 by Mariah G.

    If you have thick hair, Shelby is YOUR GIRL! Ugh I have a ton of hair and can probably count the number of good haircuts I've had in my life on one hand. I bop around salons and hairdressers every time I need a cut because they're never that good. Shelby is seriously that good!! She made me feel so comfortable and gave me a fantastic haircut. I also found her pricing really reasonable. I will absolutely be going back! Bluebird Salon itself is really cute and you can tell they genuinely care about their clients. I only wish they would send a reminder or confirmation text. They called to remind me but i always forget the time so a text would be helpful.

    Although it was months ago I felt the urge to share...So it was the first time that I had been to a salon since getting out of the hospital for major surgeries due to a MRSA infection. The booking staff were attentive and thoughtful pairing me up with a wonderful hairdresser who accommodated my specific and challenging needs!  My hair came out beautifully and I even got some great inside info as to how to help nourish and revitalize my hair after such traumatic events! The price was reasonable and absolutely worth the result! I will definitely be back!

  • Oct 19, 2019 by Gabi G.

    I just got my hair done by Vanessa  she did such an excellent job. She definitely took her time with me even though I was running behind. I showed her pictures of the kind of color I was going for and she went above and beyond that for me, fixing the hair color I had before. Not only that, she cut my hair to where I didn't lose too much length, I have really long thick hair, but was able to take all the spit ends and weigh less so I can finally have some volume. Thanks Vanessa, I will see you soon

  • Oct 17, 2019 by Jeniffer K.

    Love this salon!!! Warm and inviting and everyone is extremely friendly. My hair needed help and that's exactly what it got. I saw Leah Heidler and she saved the day!!! Love my cut and my color. I've found my forever salon and stylist. Thank you!

  • Oct 04, 2019 by Chip S.

    I came to BlueBird salon to have my hair cut and colored before my wedding day and I could not be more thrilled with my experience there. I saw Kristina, a master stylist at the salon, and she literally brought my hair vision to life! I had never colored my hair in the past (ever!) and I was really nervous to switch things up right before my wedding. Kristina was so calm and helpful, she helped me figure out what I wanted and listened to everything I had to say. She took her time and really made sure my hair came out perfect. Her technique is incredible, she is truly an artist when it comes to hand painting. I left the shop with my hair looking even better than I envisioned and it was all thanks to her! Will definitely ONLY be coming back here for her in the future!

  • Oct 03, 2019 by Lucy Z.

    Kristina is a miracle worker. We had a consult and I had complete confidence that she would transform my orange, streaky hair into chocolate perfection. I wasn't wrong. Her styling is on point too. She put curls in my stick straight hair and it's lasted a day. I am impressed. But really the color is unbelievable. So rich and deep but not damaged looking. I love it and will be back

  • Sep 23, 2019 by Alexis B.

    Bluebird was a wonderful experience. After moving to slo from orange country after ten years and seeing the same hairdresser, I was very nervous in going somewhere new. This salon is so cute. They sell great merchandise out front. I was greeted with a mimosa when arriving. My hair stylist was cute and did a fabulous job. She understood what I was looking for and did it. This place is a little on the pricier side but you are getting what you pay for.. the whole experience. Will definitely come back.

  • Sep 22, 2019 by Becka R.

    I have not had my hair cut or colored in over two years and needed it so badly. I saw Kristina at Bluebird and she was absolutely amazing. She asked what I wanted done and communicated well with me regarding price, expectations, and goals. She is very detailed and took her time and my hair came out AMAZING. I am SO happy with the results. I highly recommend Kristina.

  • Sep 21, 2019 by Mary Ann P.

    I've been going here for about 2 years.  It's always clean, organized and well kept.  You are automatically greeted and offered a beverage.  They really strive on great customer service.  Making appointments is a breeze too.  I've seen Cindy and Shelby so I highly recommend them. They both make recommendations on what looks good on you and make every effort to meet your expectations.  Looking for a new salon and hair stylist then definitely see them!

    Shelby U. is now my forever hairstylist after being a walk-in and getting my hair colored and styled by her at Bluebird about a year ago. She gave me exactly what I wanted and then some, helping me find the perfect color and the best balayage I’ve ever gotten (I tried other people from other salons and I wasn’t totally happy). A year later she’s still giving me AMAZING, LONG LASTING COLOR and tips on the best way to style my curls (life changing). She is incredibly talented, friendly, and professional and I love getting my hair done by her. Thank you Shelby and thank you Bluebird!

  • Sep 20, 2019 by Rainer Fiege-Köllmann

    Favorite salon in the area. Have been going here for nearly 10 years and had various stylists. Everyone is very friendly and has always done a good job with my hair. They also do small things like provide change for street parking.

    Just moved to the area and a friend suggested Bluebird.  I have been highlighting for years but the upkeep was too much.  I wanted something a little more low maintenance that would still be blonde but without that harsh root line as it grows out.  Kristina was amazing.  She completely understood what I wanted and explained each treatment in detail. It was the best color treatment I have ever had! I love my hair! I highly recommend Kristina!

    Chanel did an amazing job color correcting my hair! Before I came in it had red undertones and was orange at the it's a beautiful brown ashy color which is exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend!!!

  • Sep 14, 2019 by Stephanie L.

    Just went to Bluebird Salon for the first time and am so happy I did! First of all, the owner is so incredibly responsive and sweet..I emailed the salon to schedule a color correction and cut.  She recommended Vanessa and I couldn't be happier! Not only is Vanessa super sweet and personable, she did an amazing job on my color and cut! Will definitely be back! Thank you both!

    I was really disappointed in my last service. I went in to get hair extensions, and they were falling out the very next morning. Granted the stylist did have me come in later that afternoon to fix them. I waited to wash my hair as instructed (3days later) and that first wash took them right out. I used a sulfate free shampoo as well. I spent hours trying to place them back just so my hair would not look a mess at work. The customer service was great, but my extensions were not. I just don't feel like they should be coming out less than a week after getting them.

    Both times I came here, I was more than happy with my experience. Vanessa gave me a fabulous color and a perfect cut for my very thick hair. I'm happy to have found a stylist who doesn't try to thin my hair too much, but also takes enough out to keep it healthy. She has lots of experience with coloring, so she could answer all of my questions. Even though it was a very busy Saturday morning, she took her time making sure I was perfectly happy with my style. If you need someone who will listen to you and give you exactly what you need, give her a call. Thanks Vanessa!

    Just got a full highlight done by Vanessa and it turned out beautifully! In love with my new blonde! I would definitely recommend if you are going in to bluebird to ask for Vanessa she does an amazing job!

    I just moved to the area and a friend referred me to Bluebird Salon. I called today and asked if anyone was available for a cut. The universe did me a solid and they had an appt available with Vanessa. She was absolutely wonderful. I've had long hair for over 25 years and she made me feel super comfortable going with the big chop I've been contemplating. The front desk staff was great as well. I loved the vibe of this place.  The atmosphere and energy was an unexpected treat. Thanks Bluebird, especially Vanessa, you guys rock.

    Just left the salon after getting a total transformation from Chanel (@chaneljoneshair) and I couldn't be more happy! This is the best color I've ever received. She is not only talented, but she has the best personality, is so sweet, and made me laugh the whole time. Hanging out with her for 4 hours while she did my hair was actually fun and went by so fast. If your looking to go blonde or get a beautiful color job, Chanel is your girl ! She will forever be my hair stylist

    Love this salon! Chanel's suggestion of tape in extensions gave me the hair of my dreams!

    Saw the great reviews and walked by the salon a few times before committing to a new hairdresser! I saw Maggie, and instantly it felt so easy. I am a brunette and have gray roots trying to peep in, and my vision has been to lighten up and go more blonde. Maggie got me! It was drastic enough to what I wanted, and I may go back in a few weeks to lighten even more. I seriously love it. The salon is so vibrant and cool and makes you feel pampered before your session even starts. Worth the money!

    Bluebird is a spacious, beautiful and professional salon. Not only was the customer service efficient, but the hairstylist Skylae demonstrated her well rounded skills at the salon. Check out the before and after!

    Where can I start...... Madison, the stylist, did such an amazing job with my cut. She was super friendly and helped me decide what cut would look best with my hair. From the receptionist to the stylists they all are super friendly and make you feel welcomed. They also give you a complimentary drink while they do your hair (:.

    Second time in a month hairstylist cancelled on my wife. First was due to a wedding she picked up and second due to Saturday morning hangover. I scheduled my appointments weeks in advance and verify them.

    I've been going to Bluebird Salon for about four years now and love it. Everyone is friendly, I've never had to wait very long for my appointment, and the salon is super cute and clean. They did a great job of matching me with a stylist who knows how to work with my hair type and style.

  • Jul 06, 2019 by Conny L.

    I've been a Bluebird customer for about 3 years now, and always go to Curtis who specializes in straight razor cutting. I have very fine and straight hair that never had much volume before. Curtis consulted me and was the first hairdresser to suggest a bob cut. I was blown away - all of a sudden, my hair is full, perfectly frames my face, and makes me feel beautiful. We've experimented with different bob styles and bang lengths and shapes over the past years, and Curtis always offers his expert knowledge of what would work best for my personality and style. I have tried many hairdressers in SLO and the five cities area before, but never had such a great experience as with Bluebird. My cut is $65, and I get free bang trims and neck trims between appointments - totally worth it! Curtis is always professional, but fun and likes to talk about various topics, so he makes the time go by quickly with many laughs. I'll never go anywhere else again!

    I highly recommend JZ for her kindness and expertise in getting a gum out of my daughter's hair.   We drove to San Luis Obispo today to visit Bubblegum Alley.  Half way into our drive, my daughter got a bubblegum in her hair in the backseat of the car while we were stuck in traffic.  *Sigh* After visiting Bubblegum Alley and eating dinner, we walked around town to do something about the gum in my daughter's hair and saw this place.  The lady at the reception was super kind and friendly and offered help with hair oil, etc.  I tried to get the gum out of my daughter's hair but did not get far.  Then, JZ stepped in and professionally brushed out the gum.  The ladies here are amazing!  Thank you!!!

    My hair got super damaged by the hair cut . It makes 3 weeks now and I am just waiting to regrow . The hair cut length was not adapted to my Face structure . Also when I came in the salon no one asked me if I would like some water or anything. From my opinion this kind of salon should have a minimum of attention . When I called In the morning they told me everyone was book . While I was cutting my hair all the staff was chatting ( all appointements canceled ) end of day ... When my hair cut was done and walked to counter to pay ( I know it was the end of the day) , but no one asked me ifI wanted to book an other appointment and my stylist did not even say bye. Really desapointed, I thought this was the best salon in SLO . Thank you for reading my comments .

  • Jun 24, 2019 by Ali P.

    I always receive great service at Bluebird Salon. Brit is my hair stylist and is fantastic. She's so sweet and does wonderful work every time. She is so easy to chat with and helps me feel comfortable and relaxed every time, which is tough for me in a salon environment. The rest of the stylists are kind and have lots of different strengths between them. Some specialize in curly hair, others with straight, some do great dramatic looks, while others can give you a subtle update you've been needing. The front desk staff is always welcoming and quick to offer a refreshment. I would definitely, and frequently do, recommend Bluebird for hair styling services in SLO!

  • Jun 12, 2019 by Brynn R.

    I've been going here for years, NEVER have I had as good of an experience as I had with Jillian. She was extremely friendly and willing to put in lots of hard work to dye my hair blonde. She's so talented and is a perfectionist! She even accommodated me having to run to the other side of downtown to grab my paycheck after my hair was done. All in all, wonderful experience. ASK FOR JILLIAN!!!!

  • Jun 06, 2019 by Natalie McCluskey

    Love this salon! I’ve been to both Amber and Britt and they were both amazing.

  • May 25, 2019 by Paden M.

    Okay these selfies I attached suck but I just had to show the before and after color. This review is for Maggie who is an angel and helped me go from black (with lots of old black boxed dye!) to nearly blonde in just a couple sessions with minimal damage. She's been really honest with me about what is doable, how much she charges, what to expect, level of damage, etc and I really appreciate that. Plus she is just so talented!! She really listened to what I want and gave me exactly that. She has a ton of experience and was able to give me the best possible personalized recommendations. Plus, she's such a sweetheart and so fun to be around, the appointments fly by because she's a great person to chat with! She genuinely cares about her customers. I will be coming to Maggie at bluebird for the rest of my time in SLO, for sure! I feel more comfortable and trusting of her than I ever have or a stylist. Also in general bluebird rocks, the girls who work there are all so friendly and fun, the place is always nice and clean, etc. love!

    I haven't had a haircut in 5 years. I had so many other priorities to spend my money on that I never really got to have a self-care moment, but I had truly gotten to a point with my hair where it made me feel less confident. The layers were grown out, the ends were ratty and there was significant breakage. I didn't know if my hair could ever bounce back from the lifeless mess it was. I did quite a bit of extensive research on Bluebird Salon and when I called to make an appointment the receptionist was very accommodating in finding a stylist that would not only fit my budget, but would really be able to work with my naturally wavy hair. We both decided on Madison. So on Saturday morning I showed up with the hopefulness that my hair could be remedy and ready to chop my hair off into a lob. Madison was wonderful. I was a bit shy so I didn't talk much, but she listened to what I wanted and was really open when I needed a bit more clarification on the direction we were taking with my hair. I really felt she was considerate of my hair needs and I bought all the products she used because the results were amazing. I liked that there were times when she sat to cut my hair and moved my face at certain angles. She was extremely professional and I let her have free reign on how to style it. After I saw how beautiful my hair looked in a lob, I trusted her to do whatever she wanted. She really understood my hair texture and definitely worked with it and made certain the style would work with me when I left the salon. The service was everything I expected from Bluebird and then some. I definitely plan on scheduling another appointment with her in the future as well as for other services that Bluebird provides. I 100% recommend this salon to anyone in need of a haircut or who are like myself and just need a good self-care moment.

  • May 14, 2019 by Nate Guggia

    Curtis was amazing. I was feeling pretty lost with my hair style and wasn't sure what to do with it. He took the time to consult me on a few cut choices that'd work specifically for my style and hair type. It wasn't just a normal haircut. It was personalized. I felt like he was an expert at cutting men's hair. This was the best haircut and styling experience I've had in a very long time. I'll absolutely be returning for my next haircut. Thank you!

  • May 14, 2019 by Nancy Toledo

    Amazing environment and lovely treatment by everyone! I got a hair cut and color by Jillian. She did an incredible job transforming my less than appealing hair mess; definitely recommend!!

    I had a lash lift done by Sarah last week and I love how they turned out! I was a bit nervous because I hadn't done anything like that before but Sarah let me know the process and kept me in the loop while doing the lift. We talked while I was there and she is super nice and easy going. I would definitely recommend her to other people and I've seen photos of her other work which is beautiful! Trust her with your lashes! The front desk girls were really sweet and helpful too. I love this salon!

  • May 09, 2019 by Tess L.

    I was so nervous to find a new stylist. I'd been going to the same one for over 10 years, but starting college I needed to find somewhere closer to campus. A few girls on campus had recommended Bluebird and after speaking with the owner on Yelp, I decided to give it a try. I had very long hair and was looking to go pretty short, which I was also super nervous about... But then I saw Gabi, and she was lovely! She used a razor cut method paired with normal trimming and left my hair looking gorgeous and super healthy. The salon atmosphere is clean, friendly and relaxing. The staff were all very nice. Gabi assured me if I had any issues with my cut, I could come back and she'd fix it up. I couldn't have asked for a better first experience and will be coming back in the future.

  • May 03, 2019 by K C.

    Had my first haircut with Gaby and am so pleased! She really is an artist and is there to provide what your hair NEEDS. My hair was dead and lifeless and with a simple cut she gave it so much volume and personality! This is my new favorite place in SLO and I feel confident going in knowing that bluebird has my best hair in mind!

  • Apr 29, 2019 by Loralie H.

    Love my cut and color - Cindy took me to platinum and keeps it fresh and bright as well as consistently coming through with a really good cut.  It was my good fortune to find her. I enjoy the trendy type energy of the salon, lots of interesting looks and plenty of style, but it is the courtesy and care the moment you are greeted by the always attractive and professional front desk that sets the pleasurable tone of your experience. Not looking to change!

  • Apr 19, 2019 by susan c.

    Here on vacay away from my regular stylist so I tried Gabi on a whim, and I'm totally thankful I did! No new person has touched my hair in over 10 years so this was a huge leap of faith for me.   This work was by no means inexpensive but I gave myself a treat n now that it's done I feel it was totally worth it.

  • Apr 11, 2019 by Carol R.

    I just had a total spa experience!  Pampered all the way by my stylist, Cindy Figueroa!  She not only listened to my hair preference but she took great care to take care of my every need right down to the wall heater to warm my feet to a warm towel behind my neck to a massaging chair at the sink to a fabulous "trim" without taking too much off!  (I love my long hair.). Unlike other stylists I've had in the past, Cindy really cares that I love my hair long after I leave and not just the salon look for a few days.  So, long-haired ladies and shorter lengths too, if you're looking for someone who pays attention to you AND you want that spa experience, book your next appointment with Cindy Figueroa at Bluebird Salon!

  • Mar 28, 2019 by Lindsey Harn

    Absolutely loved my cut with Janina!!! She's the curly haired expert. My hair is long, curly & can be unmanageable. She made me feel comfortable, confident & seriously styled. Everyone at the salon is friendly & gracious. Thank you!

  • Mar 16, 2019 by Shyla P.

    I went to bluebird salon based off the reviews I've seen, I found Gabi and had not gotten my hair done in 3 years, my hair is long and thick. I was so nervous about getting it dyed to a lighter color. Gabi was amazing, she had a consult with me before and set my expectations accordingly. She focused on doing my hair, listened to everything I said. I didn't want it cut short, just a trim. She did just that. I would say if you want to get your hair done, but are worried about not having what you want done, she's the girl to go to. She listened to everything I told her I wanted. I left the salon so excited. Thanks Gabi!!!!

  • Mar 13, 2019 by K S.

    Just finished up with a cut by Brit Tarr and am so happy with it! I've never had short hair and Brit gave me the best cut I've ever had. So stoked to show off my new look!

  • Mar 13, 2019 by Saskia L.

    Some of the lovely ladies from Bluebird came to my sorority's bid night earlier this year and they were amazing! They did the cutest braids and buns on everyone and I'm about to go get a haircut here so I'll be sure to update my review after!!

    I loved Amber so much. She far exceeded any expectations I had. My hair makes me feel more like myself. Usually I leave salons with regret, but this is truly a great cut and color. She deserves all the props. Also, the salon was beautiful and nice to spend time in.

  • Feb 26, 2019 by Juliana L.

    I got my hair done by Amber today and it's the best work I've had in a really long time. She blended, balayaged, color corrected, and toned my poor hair to something beautiful. I'm so happy.

  • Feb 06, 2019 by Samuel C.

    All you wonderful people going on about how great Evan is as a hair cutter are spot on.  He is a master cutter and trains many of the other cutters at Bluebird.  If you are wanting a transformation, a new cut, a challenging cut, no worries, Simple Simon for Evan. He is world class, no lie.

  • Jan 27, 2019 by Olivia Webb

    I called in the morning to schedule an appointment later in the day. Not only were they able to schedule an appointment for me, I was scheduled with Master Stylist Evan. They told me the price before I booked the appointment and stuck to it when I paid. Evan was knowledgeable and gave me some great advice about how to care for my hair. He cut my hair to exactly where I wanted it. I’m excited to come back here next time I need my hair cut!

  • Jan 07, 2019 by Olivia Z.

    This salon is incredibly professional and has some talented hair artists. If you go to their website you can peruse the instagram of all their employees and find your favorite stylist to book an appointment with. They are definitely good at pampering you, so if you're treating yourself to a new look this is the place to go! I definitely enjoyed my experience and I would book again. My 1 star dock is because of a picky detail about my hair cut, and because of their policy where they charge you half the service fee if you need to cancel for any reason within 24 hours before your appointment. I understand the purpose of this completely avoidable charge-- but since it's not a set price it can get expensive depending on what service you're booking, plus it means you need to share your credit card information over the phone. That always makes my nervous. Also, I specifically asked for my hair to be long enough to pull back neatly and some hair at the base of my neck got cut way shorter than the rest of my hair--- too short. I can only guess my hair dresser intended to cut away the more damaged parts, but it will be a while before my ponytails will look neat again. I enjoy the overall cut though!

  • Jan 03, 2019 by Ashley M.

    I've been in to see Sammy three times now and absolutely love her! Each time I've left with exactly what I'd gone in looking for (dye and cut-wise), and she's worked with me along the way to figure out just what that is. She's incredibly friendly/personable, super easy to talk to, great at what she does, and just has an overall awesome energy about her. Stoked to have found her, and can't wait to go back again!! :)

    This was my first time being a customer here and I freaking love my hair cut. I'm sure the other hair stylists are amazing too but Maggie is outstanding!! I don't get my hair cut often and she made me feel so welcoming and I thoroughly enjoyed my hair cut. I just had to say a few words on what I was picturing for my hair style and she went above and beyond. I look like an entirely different person and have a boost of confidence now thanks to Maggie! Plus I got some great new products that are easy to use; So far they are doing what I wanted them to do and I'm enjoying them very much. Would definitely recommend this place and I'll be returning. Drinks and free bang trims!! Wooh!!

    5 starts for the salon, 10 stars for my stylist! I'm sad that I can't remember her name, I'll have to call to get it. Because wow! I have had very long hair for over 10 years and finally decided to go short. I showed her a few pictures of what I wanted and she helped me decide exactly what to get. It turned out EXACTLY how I wanted it! I'm so happy I could cry! I've never loved my hair like I do right now. Before I moved to the area, I went to the same stylist for about 7 years. However, bluebird is my new standard. THANK YOU!

    I've been putting off leaving a review because I was hoping I could convince myself to like my hair, but it has been a couple weeks and I'm honestly so disappointed. I came in to get my roots blended into the rest of my hair. I wanted it to look as natural as possible, and I didn't want to bleach it anymore. I wanted to go back to a version of my natural hair. When I came in, she insisted that it would look much better if she lightened a couple small pieces and I finally gave in after she showed me a picture of the balayage she wanted to replicate. It doesn't look anything like she said it would!!! There are HUGE areas of bleached hair. I have naturally curly hair and now the bleached areas are so damaged that they don't curl right anymore and just look fluffy. On top of that, the line of my roots is just as bad as it was before I spent almost 300 dollars to get it fixed. To top it all off, she dripped a drop of bleach on the top of my head, and people keep thinking I have a spot of dandruff. This was my first time getting my hair done and I wanted so badly for it to be amazing, but it wasn't.

  • Dec 08, 2018 by Cass M.

    My experience with Maggie at Bluebird was most awesome and enjoyable! She did a wonderful job with what I asked for. Make-up can always be tricky especially for a wedding day. She helped me feel comfortable & look my best for the wedding! I highly recommend her! She's so sweet and gets it!

  • Dec 05, 2018 by Lilianne T.

    I am still relatively new to SLO and I was so hesitant to go to a salon here bc I was afraid of prices. But after calling around, I found that a women's haircut here is pretty standard price - $55. My stylist was Madison I believe and she was super sweet and energetic and talkative. She did such a great job with my hair! I love my hair so much and she really took care of it with the instructions I gave her. I trimmed off maybe 3 inches and asked for layers and for my hair to not be so poofy thick in the back and she did it all! I felt impulsive and wanted to color my hair as well but it was probably a good sign she didn't have time to do it. Her prices for coloring was pretty cheap too - it starts at $80! Overall, this is a cute little salon with multiple stations. It's very clean and they even sell lots of good hair products. I got suckered in and I'm usually pretty resistant. I would come here again for sure!

  • Dec 04, 2018 by Taryn D.

    Maggie did a great job on my single color and cut! Would highly recommend her for her style and her enthusiasm in what she does. They give you coffee and spa water which is a wonderful touch too! I would have gotten wine if I didn't have to work later haha. Very well done Maggie!

    I just got the best haircut of my life from Gabi !!! I have had my hair long, down to my elbows for over 6 years ... today I was feeling adventurous and Gabi gave me a beautiful shoulder length cut. I have been dreaming of taking this leap for several months now, and I am just so grateful the stars aligned for me to meet Gabi today. It is exactly how I hoped it would be. I feel like a new woman !!! Thanks Gabi : )

    Besides their wonderful staff, and talented stylists I just want to point out how clean, stylish and functional Bluebird Salon is. The two times I've been here the front desk has warmly greeted me and asked if I needed anything as I waited for my stylist. After extensive research aka scrolling through her Instagram feed I chose Sierra! What I loved most(besides the end result!!) is our consultation. I knew that she genuinely cared about what I wanted, and I wasn't just another person who was sitting in the chair. Not only does Sierra have a strong passion for her career, but she's also extremely educated and took the time to explain how I should upkeep my color/hair. When I returned a few months later to go a little blonder Sierra was unfortunately unavailable. However, my previous experience with the salon didn't deter my hair plans and so I looked at other stylists and went with Gabi because I felt she would create a look that I wanted- and she did! Gabi was just as wonderful as Sierra! She's a well experienced and educated stylist that delivers on what you want. Before I left Gabi told me that I could text her or call the salon if I was having any issues- I didn't of course because I loved my hair!! But it's that sort of care and attention to clients that makes me want to drive 40 minutes to get my hair done. They're a professional business, yet the interaction between clients and stylists (even if they're not your client or not your stylist) is casual. It's such a positive, relaxing and delightful environment to spend a few hours in. You never want to leave, but when you do, you feel confident and invincible!

    This place is a joke. I went in for a Brazilian blowout only to leave extremely disappointed. Before I booked the appointment, I specifically went in the salon to show my hair length and ask if it's possible to do one at this point. The receptionist went on back and asked the stylist who used to do them previously. She came back and said that the stylist told her that a Brazilian blowout can be done at any length. It was only after then that I decided to book an appointment. 3 weeks later on the appointment day, I was greeted  by the staff, who are very friendly indeed. Then I was seated and the hairstylist explained to me as to what a Brazilian blowout does, and it apparently "does not smooth out curls" but it eliminates frizz. I was a bit confused by the hairstylist's description of it as I have witnessed family members do them repeatedly. Now I understand my hair is extremely coarse and curly and the result may not be as smooth as I wanted. But my family members have even coarser hair and their hair has come out completely smooth and silky when they've done them. Also, she reminded me that my hair is too short and that I wasn't going to eliminate frizz 100%. Didn't I come and ask if my hair was at the right length 3 weeks earlier? But I wasn't going to let that discourage me so I decided to give it a shot, thinking the result will be better than what I had initially started with no matter what. However, fast forward till the end--my hair was completely the same. The stylist tried to convince me that it's a lot less frizzy and that I should "rock the curls." And I was told I wasn't supposed to shower my head with shampoo for 3 days, which I'm sure isn't part of the Brazilian blowouts process. But if that's the case, that should have been disclaimed early on. After I got back home, my family members who had done Brazilian blowouts their entire lives told me that I looked the same. I don't understand if the problem was my hair was too short or if it was too thick and curly but basically I payed $300 for my hair to look the same.

  • Oct 17, 2018 by Maddie C.

    Gabi is the BEST. I've gotten my hair done by 20+ hairstylists, and I've literally never had a balayage look as natural as she made mine look. Gabi does exactly what you ask for (balayage, cut, tone, you name it) and always leaves me super happy with my hair! 10/10 recommend her!

  • Oct 17, 2018 by Kristina R.

    Curtis all day everyday!! I get so many compliments on my hair and tons of nurses have started coming to him to get their hair done also. He's super fun, very knowledgable, and always delivers. If you need a good cut, go to him, you'll never be disappointed.

  • Oct 16, 2018 by Jessy E.

    I got my hair cut and colored for the first time at Bluebird in April and have been trying to fix it since. I have naturally curly, dark brunette hair and it was bleached blonde even though I had no desire of making my hair blonde. It was cut in a way to "take off some of the weight of my hair" but it made it more frizzy and puffy than normal. I've toned my hair at other salons 3 times now and my hair has been left orange and my curl pattern is damaged from the bleach. It looked good the day of after all of the styling, but it was not close to what I wanted at all. Price was also never discussed with me so when I checked out I had to pay upwards of $300 when I just wanted a simple haircut and touch up on the redness of my hair from the sun. I think my stylist's vision was just too ambitious for me!

  • Oct 13, 2018 by Nancy D.

    Very much enjoyed new my hair style experience with Curtis Campbell at Bluebird Salon. He gave me everything I was looking for in a style that is simple and easy to care for, plus gives me a great saucy look. I'm very happy with the new me. He explained his thoughts and methods before cutting and it all turned out just as he had described it.

    I've been here twice now, both times Gabi's done my hair and I highly recommend her!! She was really good at knowing what to do with my hair and explaining the whole process to me. She turned my hair from dirty blonde to the perfect light blonde that I wanted! She also cut my hair the second time and it made it even better

    I don't normally write reviews. But after living with this haircut for a while and recalling my bad experience at Bluebird Salon, I've decided to warn others that it's definitely not worthy the money ($80!). I tried Bluebird after my stylist of many years moved out of the area. I booked an appointment with Gabi Martinez because she was supposed to be good with curly hair, and she seemed to have experience with long, wavy layers. I was hoping to find a new permanent stylist (I tend to be very loyal once I find someone). Gabi couldn't have cared less. She didn't seem very interested in me or my hair, cut it shorter than I had requested, and then told me toward the end that she didn't have time to style it! She used no products, even though I had told her what I use from the Bumble and Bumble line, which the salon carries. And she simply gave me a blow dry, which doesn't work with thick, normally very curly hair. To top it off, without asking me she cut a new chunk of bangs, which I'm now having to grow out. My bangs even looked crooked because she didn't style them. The cut itself was OK once it grew out a little bit. But given all the other issues and the fact that I had to go home and style my hair myself, I could have gotten the same basic cut for a lot less. I'm happy to pay top dollar for an excellent cut and a stylist who I can trust. Bluebird Salon is NOT it!

    my new go to salon!! over the summer I got eyelash extension again and was eager to find a place in slo to keep up with them since now I'm back for school. last year I tried to do the same thing but the salon I went to didn't do a great job and was expensive. Bluebird salon is so beautiful and the staff was super helpful and nice. Right when I walked in I was impressed with the interior decor! I got a hybrid (fuller) lash refill with Sarah and she did an amazing stuff. The next day she followed up to make sure I was happy with my lashes and so did the receptionist! They really made me feel like they cared and appreciated my business. I will definitely be coming back, maybe for a new hairstyle too!

    Had a great first experience! Went in for a full foil and after speaking with Curtis we decided more of a partial would be best. He was great. Friendly and really knows his hair stuff. Even decided to cut my hair. I am very happy with my new doo! Thanks Curtis, you rock!

  • Sep 28, 2018 by Dallas F.

    The salon itself was nice, but the cut I got was not what I asked for. Would not recommend to a friend and will not be going back again. I asked for fringey, face framing bangs and even showed her a photo from Pinterest and ended up looking like coconut head. Will not return.

  • Sep 17, 2018 by Katie M.

    Had one of the best salon experiences here last week thanks to Leticia Staton! She listened to exactly what I wanted, made suggestions for what she thought would look good, and ultimately transformed my hair! My hair was so grown out and not very blended and she fixed it perfectly! I have been getting compliment after compliment on my new do and that's all thanks to her. I feel so confident with my hair now! Can't wait to book with Leticia again! P.s this is the cutest and friendliest salon I've been to.

    I have been going to Bluebird for a little over a year now. Recently, I switched hairdressers within the salon (only due to scheduling difficulties). I was a red head and wanted to go to bleach white hair. I did my research before talking to Amber G. to know whether or not she would opt to change the color in stages and not all at once, as the former is much better for the hair. Right off the bat, without me even saying anything, she recommended doing several appointments. She also went into detail about the process that would be taking place with my hair. Amber was very kind, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with. Even when I had some areas that I wanted to be a bit more bleached after our last session, she called me in and spent two hours getting it a bit more white. For free!!! I don't care how good a product or service is, if there is bad customer service then I won't return to a business. I have never had that problem at Bluebird and it's because of the hair stylists (like Amber) who are very hospitable and kind to their clients. Thanks Amber and I'll definitely be coming back!

    I was looking for a big chop because my hair was as dead and as damaged as it gets. I called in around 4 and was able to get an appointment at 7:45 that night (they open until 9!!), and was scheduled with Madison. I showed her a pic of what I wanted, but told her she could do whatever she felt would best suit me. She chopped a good 6-7 inches of my hair off, and wow what a difference. My hair went from dead waves to luscious curls instantly and I was so happy with the results. She showed me all the products she used, and how to use them at home. She even gave me her card so I could text her if I have ever had any questions. She was super cute, and made me feel like a new person!

    Ariel transformed my hair from long and dull to short and light. She listened intently about whatI wanted in the consultation and delivered it flawlessly. I especially loved her attention to her work and creative concentration on my head. Since I was there for a few hours, I noticed the entire staff worked professionally and the place is so clean! HIGHLY recommend this place.

  • Aug 25, 2018 by Kristine D.

    I used this app to schedule an appointment earlier this morning and the owner Ariel was so sweet she was able to fit me in late this afternoon. I felt really bad because I knew I should have scheduled an appointment at least a week on advance and I didnt want anyone to have to stay late because of me. I didnt realize my appointment meant she was double booked and I felt bad for a few different reasons, but Gabi was so sweet and she made the experience awesome! I'm really exicited about how my hair turned out. Especially after the other salon experiences I have recently encountered. I absolutely love my hair and my entire experience! Already scheduled another appointment. :-) This is definitely going to be my new salon. So exicited. Thank you to all of the Bluebird staff for being so sweet, friendly, and incredibly accommodating. Also, thank you to Ariel for being so responsive. Thank you to Gabi for squeezing me in, being so kind, and doing a superb job! I am very grateful :-)

  • Aug 14, 2018 by Jen L.

    I messaged Bluebird Salon (through Yelp) about making an appointment for my daughter (6 years old). They responded quickly and a receptionist called to set up an appointment. We called on Bluebird to fix a not-so-great cut that my daughter had received at a different establishment. There was no judgement and Shelby knew exactly how to fix the cut. I was SO impressed with the result. She was so kind with my daughter and the result is perfection. Thank you!!!

  • Aug 11, 2018 by Rhiannon K.

    Bluebird Salon is clean and attractive and the receptionists are personable and professional, but this review is for Evan. Evan is the best stylist to ever cut my hair; he listens to what I want (which frequently changes), offers his professional opinion, and proceeds to create art every time. He is also a really great guy. Over a couple of appointments he taught me how to do my own hair for my destination wedding and it turned out exactly how I wanted it. You won't regret making an appointment.

  • Aug 07, 2018 by Marissa E.

    Leah Alvarez is AMAZING!!! I had virgin hair and was so nervous to ever get my hair done and had pondered on getting it done for so long - but after a last minute event came up, I decided to give Bluebird a call and they accommodated me after super short notice (You guys are SO sweet. Thank You for allowing me to come in last minute!) I was scheduled with Leah Alvarez & she was awesome!! She took such good care of my hair, I felt so relaxed, and she was so so sweet and knowledgeable! She is a great stylist and her work is beautiful. I keep getting questions on where I got my hair done and by who and I keep recommending Leah!! If you're pondering on getting your hair done like I was, or just want to go to an amazing stylist, go visit Bluebird and go see Leah!! Everyone in Bluebird is so sweet, and my experience all around was amazing. Beautiful salon, beautiful work, great products, and amazing stylists. Go to Bluebird and see Leah! I promise you won't regret it!

    Bad service. Don't waste your time in this saloon. My wife scheduled an appointment, they took her credit card number, warned several times about their cancelation policy. On the next day they were late more than an hour when my wife decided to give up waiting.

  • Aug 02, 2018 by Melanie Bise

    Ariel, the shop owner did my hair. She made me looked like a barbie doll! She seemed like she was really enjoying playing with my hair.

    I have long wavy hair that I don't take good care of. So I got the shine gloss treatment. I don't know if it really did anything for my hair. But my hair looked amazing afterward.

    I love bluebird salon. I get the most wonderful service. And the head massage while my hair is washed is always amazing.

    For someone with a lot of hair, it's very reasonably priced. I love it here.

    Sorry for the car selfie. But it's the only picture I had afterward.

    I didn't actually get to go here. I reached out to this salon to see if they did balayage color and if they were able to do silver. I was invited in for a free consultation and tried driving over to the salon. I didn't realize they are right in the thick of downtown SLO! There was tons of traffic and the parking deck was packed with no parking available. I tried driving around and got lost. I get such anxiety driving in SLO or any sort of high traffic areas and wound up going home. I sent them a text and apologized for not making it in. They were really kind and if I ever get over my fear of driving there on my own, I'll try to actually go. I am giving my rating based on the nice customer service I got.

    What an “WONDERFUL” experience from time you walk in till the time you leave. Both my daughter and I have thick hair. We had just moved from Austin TX so to trust a new person can be challenging. That land of unfamiliar. Anyways, SO BLESSED to get Sierra and she gave both my daughter and myself a FRESH look. We are going back to her in August for color

  • Jun 20, 2018 by Brenda G.

    I'm so sad and disappointed. I was dying to get my hair done at Bluebird because it has such good reviews and I looked at their Instagram and loved it. I have thick, brown hair and wanted to get my hair thinner and do a light brown balayage but I got a stylist who's work is not to be found neither on their Instagram or online (should've been the first sign). When I got there I explained to her what I wanted and showed her pictures she begun to work on my hair but didn't use foils but I figured not everyone does and she knew what she was doing. While I waited with bleach on my hair she begun to do another person's hair cut, which is fine however she forgot I was there until I reminded her and then she hurried to rinse my hair but didn't see her use any toner I asked and she ran again to go get it.... i was so frustrated at this point but trying to be nice since we're humans and maybe it was a long day... then she begun to cut my hair and gave me layers even thought I didn't want them I wanted just my hair ti be thinner out. I was so upset but just wanted to get out of there ASAP. I paid the $250 plus $30 tip. Later I got home and my hair looked stupid orange and it still does with some parts looking completely paper white. It's been about a week and a half and my hair won't stop falling off my head and smelling my harsh chemicals. It's honestly so sad and I've even cried about it because i have a bald spot in the back. Maybe I just got an awful hairdresser who shouldn't be there in the first place, but I would not recommend this place to anyone.

  • Jun 15, 2018 by Heather S.

    Walking into Bluebird, you feel welcomed with a positive vibe from the front desk. Sierra, my stylist always does such an amazing job on my hair. I appreciate her honesty and her well educated work. She cares and takes the time on making it perfect regardless of what we're doing. I would advise anyone to make a visit to this cute space and see Sierra if you're looking for a great service. Would highly recommend and will always be a returning client!

  • May 28, 2018 by Kaitlyn L

    Love this salon. Cindy did such a great job on my hair

  • May 20, 2018 by Karen R.

    After waiting over 10min for my appt, the hair stylist didn't even apologize!  I had an appt for consult ? And appt for my color ? The stylist must have not read her schedule as she was confused as when I would be returning for appt ?  I was very precise in what color I was looking for & needed permanent dye to rid the grey.  The stylist put some Semi-Permanent color on I'm assuming as my grey came back in 2wks. Costing $180 is way too costly for color that lasts 2wks ! I should have read all the negative Yelp reviews before I went to salon !

  • May 18, 2018 by Monet B.

    Brit at Bluebird is a real angel! Not only do I love the way she cuts and colors my blonde hair but she also put in tape in extensions to create more fullness in my thin hair. My hair looks fabulous now thanks to Brit! She really listens to my wants and needs during our consultation and is the sweetest to talk to throughout the appointment. Bluebird offers a super fun upbeat atmosphere and it's obvious that the staff is up to date on trends and techniques. Would highly recommend Brit to anyone!

  • May 05, 2018 by Kiersten H.

    Bluebird Salon is FANTASTIC with amazing customer service and great stylists. I had one experience where my hair wasn't cut up to par from here (I have difficult hair to cut)- but they went above and beyond to make it right- that is how I knew what a great business it was! The stylist manager fixed my haircut and gave me product to use while it grew out. Since then, I have received fantastic customer service, and have gotten a great haircut every time. Everyone very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend Bluebird.

    I was honestly supper excited to get my hair done, I'm new to the area and after reading some pretty awesome reviews I decided to book an apt for Tuesday at 9:30 with gabby (BIG MISTAKE) , my hair was not what I expected at all .. I made another apt to get it fixed (like she said she would, no charge) but instead of fixing my hair the way I originally was hoping for she gave me highlights which was NOT what I wanted despite me saying that over and over ! Now $450 dollars later with a double service charge I still don't have the hair I want, what a waste. I definitely would stay away from this place.. save your money! I totally feel like I was ripped off and would hate for anyone else to have the same thing happen

  • Apr 14, 2018 by Devin Stewart

    Sierra is incredible! Not only does she do a fantastic job on my hair every single time, but we both share a love for food! It’s great to know that I can connect with my stylist on a personal level, as well as a professional one. Beautiful salon, great service, fun atmosphere.

  • Apr 08, 2018 by Eva G.

    Evan is the man. I had really long hair that I never wore down. My husband loves my hair so this was just sad. I told Evan this and that I wanted a hair cut that I could easily wear down without too much work. He went straight to work. Side note, I like getting my hair cut by Evan because he doesn't just talk to talk. When he speaks he says real things. Not just blah blah blah I talk to you cuz I have to.  Anyways, this hair cut IS THE BEST HAIR CUT I Have ever had. Not an exaggeration. I don't blow dry it at all. I wash my hair every morning and roll out with it partially wet. It dries with this perfect little beach wave at the bottom. So I wear it down all the time. My man loves it and I have received more compliments on my hair in the last month than ever before. It's awesome. He cuts my bangs in between visits at no charge as long as I promise not to touch them with scissors myself. Evan is a great guy with an amazing talent. He listened to what I wanted and delivered.  The salon is cute. Nicely done. But Evan is the best part of it.

  • Apr 06, 2018 by Carolyn

    The services we came for turned out just fabulously. The staff was welcoming, personable, professional in a relaxed atmosphere. The knowledge and skills of the stylists was second to none.

  • Apr 04, 2018 by Mackenzie D.

    I have been a Bluebird loyal customer since my wedding back in 2011. Danica did my hair and makeup and Sammy did the bridal party and part of my makeup. They were a fabulous team to have on that day, and I was immediately hooked. Everyone looked fantastic, and they were very professional. Since 2011, I have been seeing Sammy for my haircuts and color. I have curly hair and have been through my fair share of stylists who claim they know how to cut it, only to end up with a haircut I hated. Sammy is the first stylist I trust whole-heartedly to have free reign with my cut and color. Every time I walk out feeling beautiful and totally loving my new look! The entire staff is warm and inviting, and I have befriended many of the other stylists over the years and feel like they are family. The salon decor is totally fabulous...shabby chic at its finest. Ariel does a great job decorating, and keeping the salon totally trendy, and I always look forward to seeing what has changed the next time I come in. I look forward to my appointments and count down to the day of my next haircut. I can't say enough good things about this salon and Sammy. Love her, love the salon. Hands down, the best in SLO county!

  • Apr 04, 2018 by Cara J.

    I have been seeing Sammy at Bluebird for the last year and LOVE HER! I went in for a major chop and to get my hair dyed for the first time. Sammy was so sweet and listened carefully to what I was looking for. I love that whenever I come in she has suggestions ad picture ideas and will teach me styling techniques (I'm a hair newbie and ask a ton of questions). The salon is gorgeous and has a happy buzz about it. I love looking around during my appointment and seeing what all the stylists are up to - huge variety in hairstyles!

  • Apr 04, 2018 by Erin W.

    So many wonderful things to say about this place! I'm always welcomed the moment I walk in and offered a glass of water or coffee, which I think is such a nice gesture. Sammy has been doing my hair for about two years now, and she is THE BEST. When I moved to the area, I was searching for a new hairdresser, but I was scared to try someone new as I had used the same girl for years. When I met Sammy, I knew instantly that she would take care of me. She is so sweet, friendly, and professional -- I love her so much! She keeps me beautiful and blonde, and I look forward to our appointments. I would most definitely recommend Bluebird, and I especially recommend Sammy!

  • Mar 31, 2018 by Paris U.

    I was visiting a friend from out of town and was just totally feeling myself and wanted to treat myself to a vacation blow out. I walked in and asked if they had any appointments and they accommodated me immediately! Britt gave me seriously the best blow out of my life and fixed my bangs and made me look amazing! It was such a great treat for my vacation and everyone at the salon was so sweet and the place was beautiful. I'll have to come back next time I'm coming through town:)

  • Mar 27, 2018 by Lisa D.

    AMAZING! I just moved and was in need of a cut and color. After a snafu with another salon, I called Bluebird, and as luck would have it, they were able to fit me in. Maggie was about to leave early but after hearing about my situation, she made arrangements for me. I could not be happier with my hair! The hand-painted color, with hints of dusty rose is gorgeous and the cut is perfect. Not only is Maggie a gifted artist, she's funny and sweet. In fact, everyone at Bluebird is kind, professional and welcoming. I've already scheduled my next appointment and am looking forward to coming back!

  • Mar 23, 2018 by Aly A.

    As a previous salon manager, I am so impressed with everything with this business. I left a Yelp message at 8 am on a business day for a hair emergency - another salon had made my hair blotchy, brassy, orange, and streaky. I knew that would be a tough appointment to book, since fixing this would take time. I left an emergency message to try and have my hair fixed, and the owner replied in about 15 minutes AND got me in for the same day! I immediately felt so welcomed by this salon and felt my business was wanted. Gabi did an amazing job fixing all the problems with my hair! Even though I was her last client of the day, she took time to make sure everything was done right. (I had been worried that the appointment would feel rushed). I left with a natural tone and a light balyage. It wasn't as blonde as I'd hoped, but she explained prior to starting the process that my hair would need several sessions to get to the blonde I originally wanted. We discussed what would be the most affordable and natural options for my hairstyle. Her quote was reasonable and well worth it! Unfortunately, I just can't afford another session for the style I'd originally wanted, but I am still really content that my hair is fixed. The only note I would have is that the whole back of my shirt (and jacket) got wet from washing my hair, which I don't think my stylist noticed. The decor (and atmosphere) of the salon is trendy, upbeat and fun; everyone at the front desk was welcoming and beautiful, and I felt I could trust all the professionals represented in this business. When I can afford it, I can't wait to go back and have another experience here. Thank you Bluebird for your complete professional experience, and for saving my hair!

  • Mar 06, 2018 by Nicole K.

    This is my first time ever writing a review on yelp. I came here because it has excellent reviews so I decided to check this place out since I'm new to the area. Everything about this atmosphere was great including the service and the employees, however when it came to my haircut I was pretty devastated. My hair is extremely curly and it took me years to grow out. I came in for a TRIM. When I made an apt I told them an apt for a TRIM. When I came in I told them I'm here for a TRIM and finally when my hairdresser asked me what i wanted I told them a trim about HALF AN INCH. I honestly have no idea what they heard me say however they cut about 4 inches off. I truly don't understand how that even happened. Hair grows back I get it, but I prided myself on my long curly locks and now it's way too short. Long story short make sure ur hairdresser is clear on what you want.

  • Mar 03, 2018 by Rebecca B.

    I am new to the area and needed a haircut bad. I searched on yelp and found Bluebird Salon. I was a little nervous as I always get nervous when it comes to my hair. When I showed up to my appointment I was greeted and seen by my hairstylist right away. My hairstylist was Evan. I showed him a picture and he said he could totally make my hair come to life again. Evan too great care of me as he explained what he was going to do and make it as easy as possible for me to style my hair since I am pregnant. Evan too his time in cutting my hair and then in styling it. Once he showed me, it was probably the best haircut I have ever received. It definitely brought my hair to life and looked so healthy. I will definitely be back. Thank you Evan and thank you Bluebird Salon!

  • Mar 03, 2018 by Beth L.

    Janina is the best hair stylist in all the land! She's truly a master colorist and also just a fun person to hang with while you're getting your hair done. She books out way in advance, but don't let deter you. It just means that she's amazing and in high demand!

  • Feb 23, 2018 by April S.

    I have been going to Bluebird all 4 of my college years in San Luis Obispo and from balayage to brunette to blonde to lobs, they never disappoint! Not to mention their customer service is beyond outstanding.  Recently, Madison Santero has become not only my amazing and talented go-to hair dresser but a friend for life! To anyone who's looking for an affordable and highly talented salon, Bluebird is the way to go!

  • Feb 22, 2018 by Sonya T.

    I went in for a big cut. I chopped about 10 inches of hair into the cutest Lob. Evan was super friendly and honestly quite hilarious. I was very nervous to cut so much off but he mentioned he trained with the stylist who created the look I was getting, so that was comforting. The salon was quiet and clean. The music was low and calming. The products smelled and felt awesome on my hair. I will definitely recommend and return :)

  • Feb 08, 2018 by Sierra L.

    Morgan is AMAZING! I have been getting Brazilian waxes at other salons and just recently went to Morgan and will never go anywhere else! It was by far one of the best experiences I have ever had in my 3+ years of waxing. She is extremely personable and makes you feel really comfortable. If you are thinking about waxing, but are hesitant, trust me and go to Morgan!

  • Jan 29, 2018 by Stormy P.

    I waited almost month before leaving this review, hoping I'd calm down, get over it, and move on. But it still bothers me every single day. I went in to this salon after not having my hair cut for 2 years. I went of the great reviews. My hair was down to my belly button and gorgeous. But it needed a refresher! So I showed the guy pictures, asked for long side swept bangs and some LONG layers. I came out with my hair up to my shoulders, BLUNT straight across bangs that I don't know what to do with. I was the last appointment of the night and towards the end of my appointment the receptionist just kept circling us, making me feel like she just wanted him to hurry up so she could leave. I spent 70 on a hair cut that is genuinely awful. The bangs aren't even, the layers don't make sense. I have random short chunks in places that there shouldn't be short chunks. I have wanted to cry so many times, I would NEVER suggest this salon to anyone.

  • Jan 28, 2018 by Madison C.

    I had a pretty nice experience here for a haircut with Gabi. She did a nice job keeping the length but chopping off some dead ends and thinning out the texture. They do a wash and blow dry and she curled it at the end. She was polite and thorough. There was an issue with my booking. I requested an appointment for 2:00 on a Saturday about a month in advance and was given one with Gabi (I was referred by a coworker with similar hair who had a nice experience). Two hours before the appointment, the receptionist calls and says they no longer have my appointment and I can come in at 6 that night or another day. I was already up in SLO (I live further south) and was very thrown off by this news. Ultimately, after placing me on hold, she said she could fit me in at 1:15 so I rushed in then. Gabi was very apologetic about it, but I didn't hear much from the salon otherwise. They keep your credit card when you book your appointments and charge when you cancel late. I just wish they would hold themselves as accountable as they hold their customers. Frankly, I expected something a little more considering I still don't know what happened to my 2:00 appointment? Additionally, just a warning - pricing on the website is $50 and up for a cut. My cut was $80. I think that's pricey and I didn't feel like I received $80 worth of a service. $50-$60 seems more appropriate. However, there were a lot of positives. The salon is spacious and very pretty inside. They use nice products and are right in downtown SLO (that means no easy parking ... ) so you can walk around and shop after. I don't know that this is the salon for me, but I'd recommend giving it a try!

    Evan Anthony is by far the best stylist in SLO!

    It took me a long time to realize that choosing the right hair stylist is very important. I bounced around to different people who never were able to create what I wanted for my hair. So I finally did my research and found Bluebird. I was looking into going darker but wanted it done right, so I researched each of the stylists (or birdies as they call them) and found one who seemed like she would work. Sierra did not disappoint! She was able to see what I wanted while also making the color a bit unique for my skin tone. If there is anyone who has had the same trouble I have had in finding the right stylist, I would visit their website and look a bit into each person. The vibe of their store is very nice too! It's clean and they offer you a drink while you enjoy getting your hair done. The space and people and wonderful and I will definitely return!

    I absolutely love Bluebird Salon. I have a hard time trusting people with my hair and I can happily say that every experience I've had at bluebird has been exquisite! I've been a client of Olivia's for a couple of years now and she always does exactly what I imagine, but way better! I've recommended Bluebird Salon to so many friends and they all come back saying how amazing their experience was as well. The staff goes above and beyond with their services and make sure you are relaxed and comfortable the whole time. As long as I'm in SLO, I won't go anywhere else but Bluebird Salon!

    Amber Gillespie was the Stylist for the Wada Wedding at The See Canyon Fruit Ranch. When I arrived she was finishing up and quickly made room for me to take getting ready shots. Amber was very easy to work with and so sweet. She made all the Bridesmaids Look Flawless. And the Bride was Stunning!  When the Bride and her Bridesmaids look and feel Beautiful they are Confident and Happy. Amber is Professional and so Talented. When ever my Brides are looking for hair and makeup Amber will Definitely be my Recommendation!

    I have been going to Bluebird Salon since 2014 and every visit I am greeted with professional stylists, a clean/beautiful environment, and amazing customer service! I had never dyed my hair before coming to Bluebird and I finally took the leap and am so happy with the results. Amber has been my stylist and the appointment starts with a consultation where she asks what I want and offers her thoughts. She listens to what you are looking for and delivers. She is very friendly and we always have great conversations. The owner of Bluebird Salon, Ariel, is also so cheerful and bubbly and makes your experience at her salon all the more magical.

    I was visiting SLO and in a pinch -- I needed a trim and blowout for a holiday party I had to attend that night.  Bluebird was able to get me in same day and Gabby was wonderful.  She gave me a great haircut and even fixed my problem bangs. She styled my hair and it was perfect for the party that evening. If I lived in SLO, I would definitely switch to this salon!

  • Dec 05, 2017 by Lucy C.

    The girls at the front desk were super nice, welcoming and helpful. Monet did a wonderful job at cleaning up my brows while still keeping them thick like I had asked for. Gabi was AMAZING, we talked about what sort of haircut I wanted and gave me some helpful tips about aftercare. I've never been able to curl my hair but Gabi was able to. I absolutely LOVE my haircut and will be going back to see her in January. I highly recommend this salon and definitely recommend Gabi, Monet and Evan. They're the best

    JZ was our stylist for my wedding, and she did a phenomenal job! We had her come on site to Morro Bay, and even with the early call time of 8 AM (don't worry, we all had coffee), she made the day so special. My bridesmaids and I looked amazing, and I wouldn't hesitate to come back more if I lived closer than LA. Even so, I may be back for some rainbow highlights now that the wedding pics are done. :)

  • Oct 19, 2017 by Shannon W.

    Bluebird Salon did the hair and makeup for my September 2nd 2017 wedding. If you remember back to labor day weekend you may remember being miserably hot... our wedding day was the hottest day on record in San Luis Obispo, yet judging by the hair and makeup of the bride, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride you would have never guessed it! Our hair and makeup lasted beautifully throughout the day and into the night. We had so much fun getting ready at Bluebird!

    Go to Morgan for your waxing needs! I followed Morgan when she moved over to Bluebird from another waxing studio. Once you find the right person for waxing, especially Brazilians, you do mess with that! Morgan will make you feel comfortable and at ease. She does a great job at listening to what you want, any concerns you may have and does an efficient job. I love that you can tell she is comfortable, confident and passionate about what she does. I always enjoy my results and our conversations during my appointments. Thank you Morgan!

    5 STARS! ARIEL IS THE BEST!!! My mom found Bluebird Salon on Yelp -- so happy we did! This is an LA salon without LA prices. Arial took such AMAZING care of my Mom and I. She's a talented artist that's cares about her clients. It was my 1st time adding bright colors (mermaid ombré hair) and couldn't be happier! Our haircuts were perfect! Ariel was a total joy, can't wait to come back!!!!!!

    I have been getting my hair done by Kacey for 5 years and honestly don't know what I did for all those years before her! I have super thick, wavy hair and finding a knowledgable stylist has always been incredibly important to me. Kacey has an amazing understanding of how to work with my hair; she has done an array of color for me from balayage, to highlights and then taking me back to my natural color with ease. Every style that I have had with her has come out looking effortless and natural. Not to mention, her cuts are top notch (something that's not easy with hair like mine). She is very thorough, she listens, and then takes time to explain the color and cut process with you which makes me feel so at ease in her chair! Annnnd her amazing scalp massages are a plus! I trust her completely with the life of my hair! I have told many friends about her and all have been just as impressed. If you are looking for a sweet and knowledgeable stylist, try Kacey!

  • Aug 19, 2017 by Alyssa C.

    Bluebird was such an awesome experience! The atmosphere was great and my hairdresser Gabi did absolutely amazing job! Inlove with my hair! She's new from the Bay Area and I would totally recommend her! Thanks Gabi!! :)

  • Jul 26, 2017 by Jamie B.

    I have not been to Bluebird Salon in a year, but after finally meeting another stylist I liked at a new salon, I decided I should share my experience. I'll try to keep it short. First time I got my hair cut here the stylist was very friendly, but the cut was so uneven in the back my fiance even noticed! (and he never notices lol). I went back in a few days later and she kind of treated me like I was imagining things. Thankfully she fixed it, but made a point to let me know she wouldn't charge me, like she was doing me a favor. The second time I made an appointment with this person she went home sick, so I got set up with another stylist. Honestly I was relieved. A good excuse to stick with the salon but switch stylists. I LOVED the first cut she gave me. But, like another reviewer has mentioned, she isn't great with color. Last May I saw this stylist for a cut and color. I used to dye my hair a deep reddish brown and wanted to do it again. I told her that I was going to be at my cousin's wedding in a month so I wanted something that would last. Long story short, she dyed my hair purple. Not reddish brown, more like merlot wine. At first I kind of thought it was fun, so I didn't press the matter, but she knew it wasn't right and offered to dye it again. I passed. Not only was the color not at all what I ordered, but two weeks later it really started to fade. I called the stylist and told her, which is when she told me she used a "demi" and not a permanent color. Even though I had told her I had to go to a wedding in a month!! She offered to have me come back in for a touch-up... for the same price I originally paid. I passed again. I spent the whole trip apologizing to friends and family for my fading purple hair. Ok, finally, the last straw that made me write this review is their front desk staff. Hard to pinpoint exactly what it is, but they always seem short over the phone and in person. Not helpful. One day I walked in looking for a hydrating hair mask because I could tell my hair was getting really dry. I asked the women at the counter and they both looked at me like I was insane (not exaggerating) and asked "Why do you need that? Your hair looks fine?" Needless to say I felt like a complete idiot and did not purchase anything. FINALLY, a year later I went to another salon to get rid of split ends. My stylists said, and I quote, "I don't think your hair is damaged. I think it's just really dry. Have you ever tried a hydrating mask?" And that's when I decided I would finally write this review. The end.

  • Jul 05, 2017 by Elya L.

    I was really looking forward to getting my haircut at this place because of all the rave reviews.  However, what I got was less than satisfactory.  The hairdresser wasn't very friendly and I tried to spark conversation that didn't go anywhere.  I mean, I don't need to talk about our whole life stories, but he just wasn't interested in talking.  He also didn't do what I asked and the back of my hair underneath is uneven.  I didn't bother to tell him I didn't like the cut because he already seemed irritated and I didn't want to sit there any longer.  It's a decent cut once I style it to my liking, but still some odd pieces and not what I wanted.  Other than just not vibing with the hairdresser, this place is nice.  The set up is beautiful and most of the customers seemed very satisfied and friendly with their hairdressers.  Maybe it was an off day for him, I don't know.  But if I'm paying this much for a hair cut, I expect some genuine friendliness and real attention to what I'm asking for.  Oh well, it's hair and will grow back, but I won't be returning to this salon for my next style.

  • Jul 01, 2017 by Gail I.

    Go see Jen.....hands down the best color and cut ever!  She's so intuitive; with very few hints or helpful descriptions from me, she gave me exactly what I wanted and more.  What a talented artist.  So personable too; she's the whole package and now has a customer for life!

  • Jun 28, 2017 by Sharyl N.

    This salon is a lil gem in SLO! The staff is always friendly, and the atmosphere is always clean and lively. But..... the best part is Curtis! Every cut, color or treatment is always a winner! Curtis makes the whole hair experience first class, and you leave every time with a fabulous "do"!

  • Jun 16, 2017 by Sarah De Los Reyes

    Great attention to the needs of your hair and what looks best. After coming here I never wanted to go anywhere else!

  • Jun 12, 2017 by Kerry Willard

    Loved my haircut, main complaint was that my stylist was 15 minutes late for my appointment. I was also put on a different stylist's schedule than I had originally scheduled with and no one told me. Luckily it was my first visit and I didn't know either stylist, but it still seemed weird to me. Lastly I found the stylist to be a bit condescending when I mentioned I preferred a style requiring "minimal maintenance" as well as when I mentioned the fact that it had been a long time since I had gotten my hair cut. I left feeling happy but slightly judged and deflated by the staff.

  • May 02, 2017 by Lisa L.

    I was looking for a new hairstylist that had recent training for the best look.  My hair was as long passed the midline of my back.  Curtis cut my hair and I can't even understand what he did to my hair.  Yes, it grows back but I am so unhappy with this look I have to live with.  Ugh!!!

  • Apr 21, 2017 by Dorothy A.

    I recently had my hair cut and colored (balayage) by Celena. She did a great job and was meticulous about the color placement. I moved to SLO recently and have been trying out new stylists. It is definitely pricier than where I moved here from but Celena really seems to know her craft and enjoys what she does. The salon had a pleasant atmosphere and was bustling with stylists and their clients. It was a bit of a process (I was there for a long time) but I was very pleased with the results.

  • Apr 14, 2017 by Domenique B.

    Atmosphere is awesome and I don't even recognize my hair after it's so great. Olivia is so great. My hair is really thick and a lot of times I get a hair cut it gets rushed because there's so much to cut but Olivia really takes her time and does an awesome job. The hot towel while the conditioner sets in is by far my favorite part. Highly recommend giving them a shot if you're looking for a new hair stylist!!!

  • Apr 11, 2017 by Ally J.

    I called to see if they could get me in for a cut and color while I was passing through town on vacation. They were able to get me in with the owner the next morning and I LOVE my hair! So happy with the final results.

  • Apr 07, 2017 by Jaileene Espinosa

    got a very unique haircut...sarah was able to cut my hair exactly how I wanted and followed along with any subtle changes I made along the way...they even served me a cup of tea when I walked in and waited to be attended

  • Mar 25, 2017 by C F.

    I absolutely love Selena. She did an awesome job coloring and cutting my hair. Can't wait to go back and see her in a month!

    Jen Hammack is awesome! She is easy to talk to, professional, and very knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great haircut or color!

  • Feb 27, 2017 by Sarah R.

    This review is based just on customer service.  I made an appointment for a blow out, was quoted a price and a time.  The day of I was called before the appointment and told that it would be pushed back and that my stylist was cash only.  Then I was told a different price than originally quoted, $50 just for the blowout.  I asked if they could call me back to confirm the time and final cost and I never heard back from the salon.  I really, really wanted to like this place.    But after how confused the staff was (on multiple calls) I'm nervous to even make an appointment let alone trust them with my hair.

  • Feb 09, 2017 by Stephanie T.

    I am here to sing Evan's praises!!!!!! He took a "meh" haircut and a set of very temperamental curls and gave me something I can really work with, day in and day out. I got my hair cut a week ago and I can't even tell you how many times I've woken up in the morning like, "WOW, I love this cut!" (When usually in the morning I'm looking like the bride of Frankenstein. Truth). He really took the time to listen to what I needed, examined my hair, and spent a great deal of time mastering the cut. He also gave me a sample of a B&B hair product, and being new to the area, places to eat & things to do around SLO. Evan, Ill be back to see you soon! Also excited to try out Bluebirds other services.... Thanks a ton!

  • Feb 09, 2017 by Lindsey H.

  • Feb 07, 2017 by Paige R.

    I've been seeing Olivia for years and I'm in love. I don't have the easiest hair to cut- it is long, thick, and wavy- and she makes it look beautiful! On top of that, she is the loveliest person.  Calling in and booking an appointment is easy and your day will be made if you get the pleasure of speaking with Martha! She is wonderful.

  • Jan 27, 2017 by Christine D.

    Maygan was amazing! I came in not really knowing what kind of blue I wanted. I had a hard time explaining it but some way some how she got exactly the color I wanted. She gave me a lot of good tips to try to keep the color last as long as possible. It was a great first time experience!

  • Jan 17, 2017 by Renee O.

    Love my new hair cut! It was my first time coming to  Blue Bird and Evan did such an amazing job! I was super nervous to cut 10 inches off my hair but when I sat down and told him what I wanted and my concerns he reassured me that it was a good choice and my needs were met. Never going to see anyone else! He is the only was I trust with my hair now. I highly recommend seeing Evan! Thank you so much!

  • Jan 13, 2017 by Molly Smith

    I love this salon! I feel like a princess when I walk in AND out of there. They offer you drinks while you wait, you are pampered by some of the most talented hair stylist around and you leave there looking so much better than you did before you walked in the door. I can't say enough about them. I adore this place and all the people who work here.

  • Jan 13, 2017 by Soq. Schafer

    Adorable atmosphere with highly qualified stylists. Haircuts run about $50 and they work hard to fit your schedule and what you're looking for. Finding a good parking spot to access his place is the hardest thing you'll encounter. They have always been on time with my appointment. Great spot for Bumble and Bumble products.

  • Jan 13, 2017 by Jamie T.

    What a great experience. Booked my first appointment here and had Cindy as my stylist. I have never been this happy with my hair; both cut and color are perfect, I couldn't have asked for anything better. The salon is gorgeous and is a clean, comfortable, fun environment. I highly recommend Bluebird Salon and Cindy. Thank you so much!

    Update on the blonde process from Jen !! I am so happy with the results.  This was the last session to get my hair light and natural looking which is NOT an easy task for a naturally dark brunette Italian.   Pictures below.  100% satisfied and loving it !!!  Jen made sure to show me how to take care of the color and it is extremely soft and feels amazing. I promise you will not be disappointed if you go to her.

  • Dec 23, 2016 by Kendra P.

    After a botched hair dye job, I thought my hair was unsalvageable. I visited bluebird as a last resort and Taylor did an amazing job fixing my hair. Now it looks exactly like what I initially wanted! She is extremely talented and kind, and I'd recommend her to anyone. Best hairstyle I've ever had! Thank you Taylor!!!

    Maria saved my color!! I went in with a color disaster; my hair was a muddy grey green color. I had a picture of a pumpkin spice color I wanted and walked out with exactly that! I could not be happier with the result! She is super sweet and great to talk to as well. The salon itself it adorable! And the front desk manager, (Marsha or Martha sorry I can't remember) is wonderful and was so helpful in booking my appointment. A great experience overall!

  • Nov 27, 2016 by Tawny C.

    Jillian was amazing, easy to talk to, knew exactly what I wanted and was very professional. I love the whole salon & atmosphere. The minute you walk in your greeted with a smile & asked if you need anything. Jillian worked very hard to give me exactly what I was looking for and even went beyond what she had to. I'm looking forward to going back.

    Curly girls, take note! Lisa Ponce Kim is the girl to go to if you have curly hair! She was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G with my curly hair. She took her time and was super easy to talk to and really sweet too. She know what she's doing and is SO good at it. Finding someone who is good with curly hair is difficult but I will look no more. Cash or check only. It's definitely not inexpensive here but it's worth it!

  • Oct 03, 2016 by Heather V.

    This place is first off such a cool decorated salon. I loved my hairdresser Kevin. He was super nice and did a great job with my cut and offering local suggestion for food and dinning. I was only there for a night and really needed a hair cut and I am glade I came here. Hours are super late and accommodating. I have straight boring blonde hair yet I was really happy with my results for just a basic hair cut. If you are in San Luis definitely come here and ask for Kevin!

  • Sep 22, 2016 by Mackenzie M.

    Cindy is the best! I have never left a salon so in love with my hair, usually I just end up leaving disappointed and feeling like it look still damaged and unhealthy. Cindy educated me on my hair type and what is best for it. I'm so happy and will always go back to Cindy! She does hair magic!

  • Sep 11, 2016 by Rachel G.

    Horrible color.  Poor communication.  Unprofessional salon. I went in this May to go from very light golden blonde to silver blonde, not the most difficult jump.  My stylist, Carissa, encouraged me to do it and assured me she could take it on.  I showed her an exact picture with darker roots to add depth to the overall look, and very light silver ends. I am relatively new to coloring and did not realize she was bleaching my roots, yet not rest of my hair.  I ended up with the strangest looking two-toned hair, with super white blonde roots and darker silver ends.  The exact opposite of what I asked for.  I was mortified and honestly didn't even want to see my friends later that day because it looked SO bad.  She passively offered to fix it but made it seems like her leaving the salon by 3pm was more of a priority.  She already messed up my hair once, so why would I want her to redo it while rushing hastily?  I asked if I could discuss the matter with my sister for a moment and then let her know what I decided.   I decided I didn't want my hair redone by her, because I felt the trust was already broken and I really didn't want to damage my hair any further.  I was about to tell her my decision when she comes back from the bathroom with tears in her eyes.  EXTREMELY uncomfortable and unprofessional... I politely told her I would like to get it redone by someone else and her mood changed to pissed off.   The management helped with the situation and said someone else could redo my hair later that week and that I would not be charged until then.  I was happy to hear that, but honestly dreaded just being in the salon later in the week and possibly running into Carissa after her unprofessional outburst... The management assured me that they would give me the best stylist and inform her of the situation in order to repair it. A few days later I came into the salon and was seated in a chair right NEXT to Carissa's.  Talk about awkward and a lack of consideration on part of the management.  Also, the new stylist had no idea I was coming in as a redo, and simply thought I was a new client.  I had to very uncomfortably explain my situation right beside Carissa, when she could clearly overhear.  This is where the management really sealed the deal that I would NEVER be coming back here, and also telling all my friends about my poor experience at Bluebird. My new stylist helped me get the look I was after, which I appreciate.  Unfortunately, major damage was done to my hair and has never been the same since.  That is why I'm writing this review 4 months after my treatment, because the overall horrible service is still affecting me to this day! I strongly recommend going somewhere else in town.

  • Aug 16, 2016 by Sarah A.

    Just started going to Sarah Newlon (hairstylist), she did the most beautiful ashy blonde highlights on me.... definitely coming back!!

  • Aug 08, 2016 by Kait Bullard

    Sarah Newlon is an incredible stylist and a must visit! Her color is always spot on and her styling is beautiful. An added bonus is she is enjoyable to spend an hour or two with while getting your hair done, never awkward or uncomfortable. You can see some of her work at @createdbysarah on Instagram. Love her work and love my hair!

  • Jul 21, 2016 by Ashlee P.

    Customer service? No. Trained staff? No. I left with hair that was poorly cut and colored to the point of damaged ends and unhealthy hair, and unfortunately, that's not even why I stopped going there. After trying to reschedule (not even cancel) my appointment the day before it was scheduled, I was told that the salon's new policy requires 24-hours notice, and failing to cancel within that time frame, I would be responsible for half of the services I was scheduled to receive. Their new policy was never told to me, sent to me in an email, nor was it advertised on their website. While I understand having a cancellation policy (even one that's not written anywhere), I was simply trying to RESCHEDULE my appointment NOT CANCEL IT, and instead of them working around me or being understanding that my 9 AM appointment time didn't jive with my new work hours, they told me it'd be more convenient for them if I could come to my original appointment. I was stuck, and since it would have cost me more to miss my hair appointment than work (unless I lost my job trying to make it to Bluebird), I told the receptionist, "Forget it. I'll be there." In a last ditch effort, I emailed Ariel, the owner. Though she was quick to respond and told me -- since I wasn't told about the new policy -- I wasn't liable for the cost of services, as per their new policy, the damage -- to my hair, psyche, and frustration level -- was done. Since the work is generally sub par, too, I decided not to go back to Bluebird after that.

  • Jul 18, 2016 by Jennifer V.

    I love this salon. They take their time and they do a great job. For women, finding a place to get your hair done is always a frightening journey. I felt truly blessed to have stumbled upon Blue Bird Salon with an effective yelp search a few years back. I am loyal to my stylist and felt apprehensive about going to a different stylist but due the a scheduling error (by the salon)I had to trust their replacement to do as good a job as Kasey... She did. I am always very happy with my hair when I leave and they are very accommodating while you are there. The only reason I have them a four instead of a five was because of the scheduling error...with an automated system... I am still a loyal customer to this salon.

  • Jun 11, 2016 by Kimber L.

    Too much money for a horrible haircut. Asked for long layers and got a straight haircut that looked very choppy and uneven. If I would've known I would've saved the $60 and had my three year old niece do a better job. Never ever going back. Don't let the cuteness of the salon fool you. Try blade runner instead.

  • Jun 05, 2016 by Lucie S.

    Kacey gave my short hair an ombré and did a really nice job! I've gotten a lot of compliments on how natural it looks, and it feels just like my natural sun highlights when I was younger. Kacey was very friendly and hospitable and I loved working with her!

  • May 28, 2016 by Caitlin F.

    I have been a client of Curtis Cambell's for about seven years now. I relocated to Denver (from AG) mid 2010. With my somewhat frequent visits home to the central coast, I always ALWAYS make sure to make an appointment with him. Whether it be a color touch up, bang trim, or something new. He is my absolute favorite stylist I have ever encountered...he brings an incredible and exceptional level of professionalism to the industry. Curtis is easy to talk to, fun/goofy, and I always look forward to seeing him to do my hair. Bluebird salon reception staff are always extremely friendly with me as well. The receptionist with the short hair and freckles overheard me speaking with Curtis about living out of state and my unsureness about booking future appointments...she approached me saying to just let them know on the phone that I am from out of state and only in town for X amount of days/time and that they will accommodate my appointment with Curtis during my trips home to SLO. That's great customer service! Above and beyond in my opinion. Check this salon out. It's totally worth it!

  • Apr 14, 2016 by L D.

    Cute salon but your definitely paying for the atmosphere. Been here a few times and each time I've gone, my stylist seems to be going downhill, more and more. Last time was enough for me. Went in for a bayalage and came out with horribly colored hair. I now have two toned hair (imagine your top half dark and your bottom half brassy gold) not to mention it's dry. It wasn't applied right and basically slapped on. She also left it on too long, due to her gabbing with her other client. This is what happens when you try and do too many clients at once. You may make money, but your client loses quality. The color was definitely not applied the way it should have been. The real pisser...the stylist had the audacity to charge ME $300 for HER mistake! She re-did my hair several times (basically slapping on more color and leaving me for over 30 mins) after I told her it wasn't right, and it still didn't come out correct. Then I think she ran out of time (again, due to her OTHER client) and she didn't even bother to style my hair. I was left with wet hair and no apology or refund. But she had no issue charging me for her mistakes. I am pissed off and totally appalled at how I was treated, after I have been a client at this salon for a few years. I have put up with a lot of BS from inept front desk staff saying I don't have an appt. when I have an appt card IN my hand, to having appts cancelled 15-30 mins before my appt. time, to being overcharged over inflated costs, numerous times. Reason I continued coming to this salon was because in the beginning it was good. My stylist in the past 6 months or so, seems to have other things on her mind, but her clients hair. She seems to care about making money but not offering professionalism or quality. Same with the salon. One thing that's consistent, is that this salon/owner and the stylist, do not want to admit wrong doing or refund you for their mistakes. NOT professional at all. Also, the parking really sucks.

    Unfortunately I did not have a positive experience here.  I had my hair done for my wedding day in Cambria and it was AWFUL!!!  The person who worked on our hair was clearly lacking in skills or experience.   My maid of honor was also unhappy and texted me from her room to see if I would mind if she started over and washed her hair and did it herself (!!).   This was very disappointing as the wedding pictures will last forever, ugh.  I asked the salon for a refund because I was so upset about this but they did not offer me one.

    Rebecca at Bluebird is the absolute best wax service I have ever had. I've been getting Brazilian Waxes for 5 years now and she's been the best yet. And she always styles my eyebrows perfectly! The hardest thing about leaving SLO after graduation will definitely be trying to find a Salon as good as Bluebird.

  • Apr 05, 2016 by Ellalina K.

    Loved our experience. I was turning 40 in a couple days needed a pick me up to put a bounce back in my step. Evan is amazing. I gave him a head of flat hair and he returned it back to me sexy and bouncy. Seriously a miracle worker. He also spent an incredible amount of time with my daughter. Giving her a A+ pamper experience. He helped her tremendously with her ridiculously thick hair. Making it more manageable and light. Something she can actually manage. After all that work, he styled her hair just the way she requested it, a special treat for a mother daughter team that is no frills! Evan thank you so much for such a wonderful experience! We look forward to seeing you soon!

    This salon is so cute and chic! Carissa gave me a haircut and it turned out great. She really took her time and listened to what I wanted. I'd never been to this salon before and she was very personable and made me feel comfortable. Will definitely be going back!

  • Mar 22, 2016 by Jason C.

    Curtis Campbell and Bluebird Salon get five stars from me!  From start to finish my experience is spot on. I'm always greeted promptly and courteously from the front reception. They offer beverages which is a nice touch.  If I have to wait, it is only for a short time, and I never feel forgotten. Curtis is the most knowledgeable and passionate hair stylist I've ever had.  He always takes his time to listen to any concerns I may have and he advises me well on the best and latest products available. I have been going to Curtis for several years now because I have tough hair to deal with and Curtis is very attentive to the little details. He's a perfectionist and that makes him great! Highly recommended!

  • Mar 13, 2016 by Vanessa G.

    My last two visits were not a good experience!  I've invested a lot into my hair and to not get what I wanted sucks.  The last time i left with my hair wet in the scalp, and parts curled and others straight.

  • Mar 08, 2016 by Carlie B.

    I first went in to see Lisa Ponce Kim just under two months ago, with dull, washed-out red hair for a consultation for a color correction. Not only did she outline in detail everything that she planned to do with my hair, she also outlined prices for me and made the process easiest on my wallet, AND she pointed out some products to me to not only help repair my hair as it was, but to keep it healthy throughout the color correction process. Two appointments later, not only is my hair a GORGEOUS blonde, it is also healthier than it was BEFORE all of the lightening/toning/blonding. Lisa most definitely knows what she is doing when it comes to hair, and I will never trust anyone else with my locks again.

  • Mar 03, 2016 by Nadia A.

    I've been a client at Bluebird for almost a year now and I have a great experience every time. Not only is the salon the cutest thing you've ever seen, but they also have great staff. I love Taylor! She is the first hair dresser I've ever gone to that actually listens to what I want and doesn't talk me out of it, or gives me results other than what we discussed. She always gives me a great cut & color!

  • Feb 24, 2016 by Katie Sowers

    Make sure you DO NOT book or even attempt to contact them if you are planning a destination wedding. They REQUIRE a trial run. I looked on their website and what I wanted done for my bridal hair was shown on their site. They would not work with me as I am 3 hours away and would not be able to to pay travel expenses as well as pay the full price to have a trial run and pay the full price AGAIN on my wedding day. I AM PAYING FOR A WEDDING HERE! Seems they are not confident in their staff and it's sad that they lost a sale of having makeup and hair done for 6 people over $70.

    I would never recommend to anyone.

    I can't say enough about the work Lisa Kim does. She is brilliant with color! I never received as many compliments on my hair as I do now. Since Lisa masterfully transformed my short, dark hair into long, almost blond awesomeness, I am always confident what she suggests! The salon itself is beautiful. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, but not pushy.

  • Feb 17, 2016 by Jodie L.

    Amazing!! I just got my hair done by Kasey and I couldn't be any more happy with it! Explained what I wanted and got exactly that. Great service, great prices and I'm so incredibly happy with it! I highly highly highly recommend!

  • Feb 13, 2016 by Bri V.

    I have been seeing Rebecca for Brazilian waxes for a long time now and she is the best I have ever had. She is very professional, making you feel comfortable being in that position, super quick and thorough. I mean like in and out of the room in 15 minutes or less and trust me...even through my pregnancy I was able to handle it. I would recommend Rebecca to anyone for Brazilian waxes any day!!!

  • Feb 10, 2016 by Cait C.

    Lisa is absolutely amazing! Completely transformed my hair and gave me a great boost of confidence! Very, very happy!

  • Feb 07, 2016 by Linda R.

    Definitely the most fabulous experience I've ever had in a salon! I booked a consultation and cut with Curtis after reading all the rave reviews about him on Yelp. Not sure exactly how I wanted my hair cut, I went in with some pictures and ideas. Curtis was so attentive  to my ideas and offered great feedback on why what I thought I wanted might not work for me. I've had very few experiences in a salon where a stylist actually cuts based upon your hair, how it grows and goes all out to create a great result. Nothing less than exceptional service and skill!

  • Jan 26, 2016 by Michelle L.

    After recently moving here to the Central Coast, I experienced a couple of disastrous trips to two other local salons. I set off on a mission to find the perfect stylist, and after reading 100's of reviews on Yelp from Paso to Arroyo Grande, I knew I had to see Curtis At Bluebird Salon! I was NOT disappointed, besides doing an absolutely amazing job, he took time to review his strategy with me to minimize any further damage and come up with a plan for my future visits. The conversation was easy, amusing and not once was there that awkward silence!

  • Jan 15, 2016 by Heather T.

    So, I am a hairstylist from out of state who is visiting friends in Slo for a week. I've been craving a new look and I wanted the salon experience. I wanted someone who wasn't my close friend or a trusted person to cut my hair. And Curtis Campbell hooked it upppp. He gave me an amazing straight razored, textured bob and I love it. I felt comfortable and I trusted him and it turned out wonderful! Thank you so much!!

  • Jan 15, 2016 by Kathy R.

    Curtis is fantastic!  Visiting SLO, had never been to the salon before, and after talking to me, he gave me the perfect cut.  That just never happens.  Can't recommend him highly enough!

  • Jan 14, 2016 by Katerina B.

    This is a nice salon with a comfortable atmosphere.  There is lots of natural lighting.  It has an edgy, chic feel. I had Bri do my hair.  She is VERY nice and listened to what I wanted and what I didn't like.  She took her time doing my hair so it would be exactly what I wanted.  She made suggestions along the way but ultimately did exactly what I was asking for.   I would highly recommend her.

  • Jan 09, 2016 by Lyndal H.

    I have been going to Curtis Campbell for over 7 years now and followed him over to Bluebird Salon. I am so glad I have a wonderful stylist who always makes my hair look fabulous! It grows out lovely and I always get so many compliments on how nicely he highlights. Curtis is also just entertaining and fun during the time there :) Thanks Curtis!

  • Dec 30, 2015 by Shelly V.

    So I'll be upfront...I may be a tad biased. When I moved to SLO this past summer I was sad about leaving my stylist down in Long Beach. My cousin in law Rhyan Townsend is a stylist a Bluebird, and she always has the best hair so naturally I started going to her. I was still a bit worried. Would I like her as much as my old gal? Well, I'm happy to say HECK YES I DO! Rhyan really listens to what you want and she delivers. She also is great about offering up suggestions on what she thinks would look best on you too. I love my hair. She did what I wanted and then tweaked it a bit to make it just a little better. Her head massage while shampooing is a BIG plus too. So good!

  • Dec 07, 2015 by Becky R.

    Let's call this a double 5-star review. 5 stars for Bluebird's unparalleled customer service, and 5 stars for miracle-worker Lisa Ponce Kim. I put off finding a local stylist for as long as I could, having made months of in between visits to my longtime, far away stylist bearable with ponytails. When you love where you live,  and can't go months and months without a haircut and color, or make a three hour trek to your regular... It's time to get serious about finding your new local person. Bluebird's excellent reputation (both here and word of mouth) made that an easy task. Their smart pre-game consults are a must, and I'm so thankful they offer this service. Lisa's Jedi-like reputation as a color whiz was reassuring, and seriously, you cannot google "color" and "slo" and not read about her somewhere on the interwebz. Meeting with Lisa to determine what you need before a service is critical, and ensures a great result for you and your stylist. Lisa is a perfectionist and will work hard to achieve what you want with your hair, and will bring you back to earth when what you say you want, and think you want are two different things :) Happy to report Lisa's been my SLO reg for over a year now. And I'm so happy to have found her.

  • Dec 07, 2015 by Fannie B.

    I can't imagine where all these positive reviews are coming from, unless I just happened to get the most inept hairdresser in the joint. Maybe she was still a student, maybe she wasn't a stylist  at all, but was simply filling in for the day, maybe she had beer for breakfast. Whatever it was, I will never, ever, ever return to this salon. The stylists communication skills are nil. A perplexing and bizarre experience. And in the end, a haircut that looks like a 5-year old did it. Be warned.

  • Nov 28, 2015 by Emily L.

    We (my mom and I) come in to see Curtis Campbell! I discovered him at another salon when going to Cal Poly a few years ago and have followed him to Bluebird. The salon is beautiful, lots of natural light, has verve coffee and has some fun, quirky details. And they use Bumble and Bumble products which are my favorite. But back to Curtis... After college I moved a couple of hours up north, but I still have to see Curtis to cut my hair. My mom (who lives in LA) happened to come with me to an appointment one time, loved what he was doing on my hair, booked an appointment for the next day and now sees Curtis every few months. I love that he works with the natural waves of my hair, styles me in a way that I can recreate myself and try's out different products on me that I am interested in. I always walk out of Bluebird with a smile on my face because visits with Curtis are full of laughs and my hair is always looking great!

  • Nov 23, 2015 by Stephany M.

    I have been going to Curtis Campbell for approximately one year and I am sorry I didn't try him years ago, it would have saved me a lot of hair problems I encountered with other local stylists. He is extremely talented and will always give you an honest, professional opinion.  My hair was severely damaged when I first found Curtis and now, it is healthy and strong again.  He is an artist and it shows in his work.  He is good for lots of laughs during your hair color/cut/style, he is your own personal comedian.  If you are looking over these Yelp reviews trying to decide on a stylist...look no further...Curtis is your guy.

  • Nov 18, 2015 by Nicole D.

    I found the best hairdresser in SLO, and probably all of California, 2+ years ago when I stopped in to get a bang trim. I had worked in a hot restaurant all day, so was lookin pretty scrubby.. but after Curtis gave me the perfect, technical trim, and threw a little product in with his magical hands, I got a discount at a hardware store that didn't go into effect till the following week! I was sold! Ever since, I've been hooked on visiting the comfy, friendly chair of Curtis Campbell. He listens to my vision for my hair and makes it happen, but I like that he'll also advise on what's going to really work for my hair. He suggested we lighten up the weight of my hair to give it more movement, and I started feeling like an off-duty model when I'd wake up with waves that were ready to go in 10 minutes. I haven't done color with him, only because my artistic mom does a decent job for free, but I would LOVE to have him do it someday as the girls before me always look good with fresh highlights as they're leaving. I'm picky with aesthetics, and searched high and low (at least 4 other salons in SLO) to find this guy. If you're looking for a great hairdresser that will get it right every time, give Curtis Campbell a shot and you'll be hooked just as quick. Also, this fresh salon has such a great vibe- clean, fresh interior and very inviting with complimentary tea or wine to unwind with as you get the star treatment.

  • Nov 18, 2015 by Miranda B.

    I had a wonderful experience at Bluebird Salon with Danica!  I have very thick and wavy hair and she did an awesome cut basically cutting out the weight with long seamless layers using several dry cutting techniques.  It now dries so much faster and looks awesome!  I highly recommend for anyone but especially those of you with thick hair.

  • Nov 14, 2015 by La S.

    Curtis Campbell has been taking care of my hair for over two years now, and as we all know, once you find someone awesome, why ever go elsewhere( unless they switch salons!!) ?? I first had Curtis cut and color my hair at his previous salon ,and because he really knows how to cut hair, I followed him to bluebird . He does an amazing job on my color ( pure platinum!) , listened to me when I needed my hair a little longer for a wedding, and always fixes me up with cute cuts. He also does a great job on my adult son's hair and beard. The salon itself is lovely and the staff is friendly! Treat yourself to cut and color by Curtis at bluebird salon!!!

  • Nov 13, 2015 by Reid C.

    I go to Curtis Campbell there at Bluebird and I go in looking old and tired, like a dirty sheep that's been out the rain for a few weeks, I come out looking young, fast and fresh. Smelling of fine oils and a face full of new confidence. Since I derive all my power from my beard, he is careful to make sure I stay tight and streamlined. He also does my wife's hair and give her the  crazy cool style that always turns heads and get her tons of compliments. SHE MY WIFE BRO, KNOCK IT OFF! Curtis is the man, be careful if you take your wife to him as all the guys will be swooning after her.

  • Nov 10, 2015 by Deidre M S.

    Amber Gillespie has been doing my hair for awhile now.  She really listens to my concerns and works hard to accommodate my wishes. Amber is an expert at cutting, styling and coloring hair.   I am happy every time I leave there and would recommend that you try Amber if you are looking for someone new.

  • Nov 10, 2015 by Brenda M.

    After searching for a stylist on the Central Coast for over 2 yrs, I have finally found a gem at Bluebird Salon. Her name is Susan Anthony. I have been a hairdresser myself, in the San Francisco Bay Area, so I am familiar with excellent hair cutting ability and color and hi-lights that are creative and top quality.  I travelled from Paso to Lompoc looking for 'that one' to cut and color my hair to my high standard. From the first appointment, I liked Susan's easy friendly manner. She looked at me, listened to me and then went to work. Her haircuts are excellent, and I have never been more pleased with my color and hi-lights. When I am ready for a change, she is already on it. I can't say enough about her ability. It is so nice to have people come up to me and say, "I love your hair, who did it?" And I tell everyone, Susan Anthony at Bluebird in SLO.

  • Nov 07, 2015 by Lucy M.

    For months I've been hearing about how amazing bluebird is so I decided to get a hair cut from there and let me tell you that I 100% agree with how amazing thi salon is. I was warmly welcomed by the receptionist and was told that the next available time to get my hair done would be at 4:15. I came back and was assisted by Evan who layered and trimmed my hair. I cannot express how in love I am with my new hair cut. It feels lighter and looks soooo much nicer too. Evan was absolutely amazing and was helpful the whole time. I will definitely come back and ask specifically for him. If you're looking for a great hair cut then ask for Evan!

  • Oct 26, 2015 by Raquel G.

    Jennifer did an amazing job cutting my hair. First time I have ever left a salon feeling like the stylist cared and understood exactly what I wanted! Thanks!

  • Oct 16, 2015 by Sunny H.

    I moved here over a year ago and started looking for a hair dresser. Never found a good one. Then found out my friend was moving here. Thank god she did. I booked with her as soon asap. I haven't been disappointed since. She's passionate and knowledgeable and even calls to make sure I'm a happy customer a day after. Thanks JZ.

  • Oct 10, 2015 by Jenna W.

    Lisa Ponce Kim did ANOTHER amazing job on my hair. I chopped 12 inches and went from pink to dark and no one could have done a better job than she did! She's taken me from light to dark to purple, pink, sunset and red! I wouldn't go to any other stylist. Best in SLO, hands down!

  • Oct 02, 2015 by Payton C.

    This review is a little overdue but it could not go unwritten. I had gone there originally to lighten my hair after going 4 years without dying it. It did NOT turn out exactly how I wanted it but unfortunately the girl I had seen was away and I was on my way out of town that week. I called and let them know my situation and they were more than happy to correct my hair. I was placed with Dominique (I would give her a 5 star rating) and she was incredible!!!! Not only did they fix my hair complimentary but Dominique brought back my natural color and made my hair look exactly how I had wanted it the first time. She was so sweet, knowledgeable, and friendly. I HIGHLY recommend seeing her when you are headed in :)

  • Sep 30, 2015 by Adrienne F.

    I would absolutely recommend booking with Blue Bird Salon for any service! I booked with Sammy for my wedding hair and makeup and she did not disappoint. Starting from the trial to getting a trim right before everything was great! She was so helpful in answering any concerns or questions and very patient with an indecisive bride and mother of bride:). She wasn't feeling well on the day of the wedding but still made it out bright and early and did an awesome job. Rebecca at Blue Bird was GREAT for any waxing services:) - very quick and professional!! I would recommend Blue Bird to anyone looking for reliable professional fun artists!

  • Sep 11, 2015 by Chelsea T.

    Got my hair cut by Lisa, and I'm so so glad! She did a fantastic job, and listened to exactly what I wanted. The shampoo & style are wonderful as well. I've tried many stylists around SLO, and finally think I've found a place I'll stick with.

  • Sep 07, 2015 by Nicole N.

    This is my second time getting my hair done by Jen Zagala and I wouldn't go anywhere else. She does a great job at listening to what you would like but adding her own flare. Best highlight I've ever got!!

  • Sep 06, 2015 by Samantha D.

    I called Bluebird the other day just for a haircut and they were able to get me in the same day which was awesome! It was my first time here and I don't trust many people with my hair so I was a bit nervous. First of all, the salon itself was adorable! Very well put together and open. It was definitely a fun but relaxing vibe which made me feel welcome. The people at the front were super friendly and quick to help. I waited no more than 5 minutes for my stylist to come out. I was at the salon to cut my long hair that I've had forever. I've never liked cutting my hair but I wanted (and almost kinda dreaded) a change of style. That nervousness quickly turned to  excitement when I met my stylist, Jen. She was friendly, funny, and so down to earth! Not to mention she is a genius when it comes to hair. She took my ideas and told me what would work with my hair and my face, and what wouldn't, and in the end she was definitely right. We ended up deciding to cut almost 6inches off of my hair!! This could be traumatizing for many girls, but instead of running out crying, I was smiling from ear to ear. Jen knew exactly what to do to make me feel confident and "sassy" (: I cannot wait to go back to Bluebird to get my hair colored by Jen! I 100% recommend Bluebird Salon, and I 110% recommend Jen!

  • Aug 28, 2015 by Elizabeth B.

    I was referred to Bluebird via a friend when another salon in the Paso Robles area did me dirty.  Let me just tell ya, EVERYTHING happens for a reason and even if we had to drive 40 minutes out of our way on my wedding day, it was worth every single penny! (a car full of bridesmaids, just blast Missy Elliot and Beyonce and make it a dance party! The drive will fly by in no time!) OK, if you don't read any further... just take note that AMBER IS AMAZING!!!!! She did my hair and makeup the day of my wedding. I had a consultation/trial with her about a month before my wedding date and she NAILED it! Although I asked to have my makeup done last minute, it was no problem. Even with no makeup trial before, she was able to do exactly what I wanted/imagined. She's a one woman show and this woman deserves a medal!  She made me feel so beautiful & let me note, that she's also the sweetest and made sure that I was 110% satisfied and comfortable throughout the whole experience. Bluebird also accommodated my 6 bridesmaids and my mom and mom-in-law. Everyone left so happy & GORGEOUS! They have tons of Smashbox cosmetics available for purchase and half of my girls went shopping crazy with all of the cute jewelry they have for sale! For bridal parties they also offer unlimited mimosas, muffins, and fruit! We definitely popped a few bottles, but I was getting married!! Why not?! haha.. Thank you Bluebird for raising the bar with your stylists and thank you again to Amber!! I wish you would relocate to Las Vegas but don't worry, I will be back next time I visit the Paso area!!

  • Aug 24, 2015 by Chelsea T.

    This place has an amazing vibe! Very friendly, bright, and clean. Amber does my hair and is amazing Every time. She does exactly what I want and has fun with it. I would recommend amber but any of the stylists are probably just as wonderful.

  • Aug 02, 2015 by John K.

    Really like getting my hair cut here. Very relaxed environment for a guy. They offer drinks and usually have some good music playing. Prices are inline with other salons.

  • Jul 24, 2015 by Erica N.

    Everything about this place is on point. I could write an essay on why Bluebird Salon is the best in SLO, but I'll try to condense it down to what really stood out to me. The salon itself is spotless. I'm a germaphobe but I can truly relax knowing they sanitize each work station and disinfect every tool/brush on a regular basis. Also, the decor is very cute and remind me of the super chic, high end salons in Los Angeles. Their customer service is outstanding. It's easy to make an appointment and they are eager to work with their clients. The woman at the front is really friendly and attentive to when people come in so you're not awkwardly waiting for someone to assist you. The complimentary fruit-infused water is a plus as well. Now I'll comment on my amazing stylist, Cindy. Oh. My. God. This woman is so talented and it's clear that she genuinely cares about her client and their hair. She works really well with my hair type. I'm mixed race and my hair has really tight curls and all different textures to it but she handles it with confidence, a big plus considering many stylists are intimidated by African hair. So far I've done conditioning treatments and blow-outs and I've always left the salon happy with the results. I'll be going back to her for a straightening treatment soon and I know she will leave my hair looking flawless, as usual. Overall, you can't go wrong with Bluebird. There is a reason why they have such a loyal clientele base!

  • Jul 13, 2015 by Kristen R.

    Lisa Ponce Kim is AMAZING! I have been going to her for over a year now. She has perfected my blonde hair in a way I never thought was possible. She really listens to what you tell her and she takes it and runs with it! She is very knowledgeable about color which is so reassuring. I could not be more happy with my hair!

  • Jul 11, 2015 by Shu Hua H.

    This review is for Audrey. Her energetic personality and positive attitude deserve at least one star. Aside from that, everything else was bad. I did not like the choppy, uneven haircut I got. She did ask for my opinion about the length I want, and I also told her how I like my bangs. However, she was unable to meet expectations. She was also rough in handling my hair, repeatedly scratching the back of my neck with her long nails while she was grabbing for new strands to be her next victim. I also felt like she was in a rush to make it in time for her next customer during my whole cutting hair experience. Way below below below expectations for a $50 price tag. She told me I can go back for a fix/trim if I don't like my cut afterwards. No, thank you.

  • Jun 30, 2015 by Elaine C.

    I went on a friend's recommendation and I'm glad I did. I got an undercut from Sammy who did such a great job! She was professional, friendly and personable; and gave me exactly what I wanted. The atmosphere is cool/hip but not pretentious. I would definitely recommend!

  • Jun 13, 2015 by Hannah M.

    This is my first time coming to this salon as well as seeing Taylor. Let me tell you Taylor is amazing!!!!!!! She gave me exactly what I wanted, the color was perfect according to the picture I showed her I wanted. She was so sweet and easy to talk to. I will def be seeing her again, she is a color and style genius. Love it

  • Jun 13, 2015 by ben c.

    Great stylists, in a cute place. Clean and modern in a easy going way. Front desk and appointment management, needs a little improvements. Definitely go there !

  • Jun 10, 2015 by Katelyn G.

    Went in to buy product for my trip to Mexico. Graci the front desk coordinator helped me. This girl goes above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome, her knowledge of the products is great. She really listened to me and what I like. Usually in salons I find the front desk staff does a decent job but not great. Graci did an amazing job and I will go back just for her customer service. Plus Bumble and Bumble products are my new fav!

  • Jun 06, 2015 by Summer S.

    This place doesn't know communication. At all. I've been a loyal blue bird customer for 5 years now. Unfortunately, the relationship has come to an awful end. My go-to girl, Lindsey, moved away. I chose to switch back to Janina, who I had originally started with in 2009. Reading some of the reviews on here, it seems like scheduling with Janina is always messy. My appointment was double booked, moved around, and it took 4 hours to do what my previous girl usually completed in 2. I didn't even have time for her to blow dry my hair. Unfortunately the salon owner handled the matter extremely unprofessionally. She put me in the wrong, and finally just stopped replying to my emails. I dont care who you are, if you own a business, you make sure ALL clients are happy. Totally disappointing considering I was charged $220 for the worst service I've ever experienced.

  • Jun 03, 2015 by Mike M.

    The atmosphere of this place is incredible. And I love the fact that they provide beverages while you wait. My favorite stylist is Susan Anthony. She does a great job and really takes the time to listen to what I want to make sure I love my cut every time. Ask for her and you won't be disappointed.

  • Jun 01, 2015 by Aubrey M.

    To start off, Dominique is amazzzing! She is meticulous with her color technique and the integrity of your hair is most important to her.  I have really fine hair and i went 3 shades lighter in 1 sitting with an ombre style and my hair felt the same as before the bleach! 3 stars because i needed a rush appt so i went with another stylist.  I know i should have waited, but all the other stylists seemed so good!  I got another girl, stressing that i was going lighter again, wanted ombre, and did NOT want warm/gold tones/red tones.  She did an all over highlight with bleed marks at the roots.  My boyfriend asked me why i went strawberry blonde when i got home. :/ my hair really dried out and it ruined the ombre that dominique did.  She didnt even write down the color she used so when i went back to fix dominique couldnt even correct it by referencing what was done.

    I really wanted to like this salon more than I did because of all of the rave reviews, but I just did not have a very positive experience.  The salon itself is adorable, the hair washing and massage was very enjoyable, and I like that they use and sell Bumble and Bumble products.  I was not impressed with the haircut that I was given, as it was not at all what I had asked for.  I'm wondering if I might have miscommunicated the cut that I wanted, but the cut that I got just did not meet my expectations, nor did I feel that it was worth the $60 I spent on it.  The part that really upset me was when I went to pay, I handed the cashier my credit card and was told that my stylist only accepted cash or checks.  I feel that should have been communicated to me BEFORE I had gone through the whole cut and caboodle.  I feel like it is pretty standard today for many people not to carry cash or checks on them, and for an established salon, such as Bluebird, to accept Visa as a form of payment.  I ended up having to run down the street to the ATM to get cash to pay, which wasn't something I expected to have to do.  I'm happy that I had my bank card on me to even be able to go to the ATM, because if I only had my credit card on me, I wouldn't have been able to pay at all.   Like I said, I really wanted to like Bluebird, but it was not the best and I will most likely go back to the salon that I normally go to.  I just wanted to try somewhere new, and this place came highly recommended from a friend, and I read so many positive reviews on here, but my experience was less than ideal.

    I have extended stays in SLO.  During this last visit I was desperate to have my hair done.  My daughter goes to this salon so I decided to give it a try.  I was scheduled with a new stylist named Taylor Haenel.  Wow, was I delightfully surprised even though being nervous about a new salon and a new stylist!   Taylor did a great job and is incredibly talented.  Also, I liked the products the salon uses and to top it off, Taylor gave me a great head massage when washing my hair.  I'm not a "yelper" but felt the need to write a review for this experience since it was so good!

    I came to this salon to get my hair and make up done for my engagement photos. I showed the stylist a few photos of how I curl my hair and some make up inspiration. I warned her that my hair is thin and will fall flat quickly if hairspray is not used. She began by curling my hair which took her all of 5 minutes and was hardly anything special. She then went on to do my make up. I told her I love make up, I wear a lot of it and am not afraid of it. After it was done and she showed me in the mirror it was way to natural and light for my taste. I asked he to apply more eyeliner as it was non existent. She tried to make my make up a little darker but it was still not working out. By this time, my hair was completely flat. She went back and curled my hair and still...was more of a slight wave. I am too nice to tell someone I dont like what they have done. After I payed, I ran over to cvs crying and bought make up and hairspray (as I was traveling from out of town for the day) and tried to fix the mess in the car on the way to my photos. I got my engagement photos back today and I just started crying. I don't feel like I look beautiful. My pictures are ruined. I am so unhappy with how the stylist didn't listen to me.

    Ok fellow yelpers, if you want a luxurious but comfortable experience, go to Bluebird Salon in Slo right off Marsh. You feel fancy just walking through the door, let alone getting any services done. It is truly refreshing in this salon. Very clean and has lovely people on staff. I want to highlight one person in particular, Kristy Gerber! I have always had some concerns when I get my hair done (not quite the right cut or color when I leave) but with Kristy she explains what she's doing in terms you can understand, she doesn't shoot down your choices and did a thorough job making sure I was satisfied when I left the chair. I actually walked out of the salon with a confidence I don't usually have after getting my hair done. Refreshed and renewed!! I can't express enough how impressed I am and how well Kristy knocks it out of the park! I will definitely be returning for all my cuts and colors! If you want to have a blast while feeling like a million bucks, go see Kristy at Bluebird Salon! You won't regret it!

    I've been living in Los Angeles for the past 11yrs getting my haircut by one of LA's top professionals but I recently returned back home to SLO For work and knew I had to take a chance..... This one goes out to Evan Stears!! He delivered on not only a creative/professional cut but this guy gave me the whole pamper package..... Like literally man.... Was the head massage, massage chair, hot moist towel for my face, product advice, friendly conversation, witty banter and overall Michelin star experience part of your daily routine??? If so this dude is gold. Bluebird salon is employing some champions and I will encourage every person I know in the area to give them a chance. If I wasn't so busy all day every day with work I'm pretty sure this haircut could get me a girlfriend, maybe even wife haha... Much love Evan and bluebird. Props.

    Hi Olivia, I HATE MY HAIR. I asked for my hair to to be light on the tips like an ombré with a balyage highlighted transition. I showed pictures. We had a consultation and I explained and I explained again on the day of color. You told me you could do what I wanted. NOBODY NOTICED I EVEN GOT MY HAIR DONE. I even clearly stated I wanted a noticeable difference. I asked questions throughout the color... Including "Will all my tips be light?" And you said yes.. I asked "will there be enough light on the tips after you cut it?" And you said yes. For my haircut I asked for more of a v shape. I asked for layers to be texturized and not blunt. My hair is now less v shape then before and looks ugly, blunt and uneven. And now I have a layer of dark hair more than peeking out of the bottom.  I wanted as little length taken of as possible and now I am forced to cut more so I can fix it! Just look at the pictures I posted.. So... To fix the botched haircut I had to make more layers than I had before(WHICH I SPECIFICALLY DID NOT WANT) and cut most of all the color off. Now I have lots of light in the front with no color in the back!!! MY HAIR LOOKS LIKE SHIT! THANKS FOR RUINING MY HAIR OLIVIA!!!!!

    Such a cute salon! All the decorations are really cute and, more importantly, it is spotless. I've been to salons before that have had hair or dust bunnies and it really puts me off. This place was great though and the staff was all really friendly. Also a great touch: massage chairs in the shampoo station. I went after work and this was the perfect relaxing touch. I'm tempted to go just for an occasional shampoo and blow out, it was so nice! I had Sammy do my cut and blow out and I think she did a great job. My hair is naturally really curly so it can be tricky to cut properly but she handled it really well. She also was great and offered to blow it straight for me which was nice. I love having my hair straight sometimes but don't take the time myself. It looks great and she did it fast! I've been to other salons where a cut and straightening takes closer to two hours but she was wrapped up in one which was nice. I was also really impressed by her offer to touch up the cut if it isn't quite right once I style it curly (my curls are random and sometimes have to be cut uneven to appear even when they curl up) - it was so sweet of her to think of that and I really appreciate the offer. She was so nice and I think after bouncing to different salons for awhile now I have found a new place - I will definitely be going back to Sammy.

    Domenique has magical hands!  The shampoo alone will send you to Nirvana!  Wait to see what she can do with your hair!  I referred several clients to her, and they have all been delighted!

  • Jan 21, 2015 by Amy S.

    Like all salons, the experience really depends on who you're working with. Danica is great! She always knows what to do with my hair (looks perfect when I leave and isn't hard to style by myself later), and is good at making relaxed conversation.

  • Jan 16, 2015 by Kari C.

    You walk in and immediately they ask if they can get you anything, like the fruit flavored water they have! They have a section of Make-up for you to test out and they'll even give you samples, like Sephora does, if you find something you want to try.(Smashbox was there last time but I think it varies). The salon is clean and very nice! The staff are friendly and professional! They even have massage chairs while they wash your hair, and a hanger for your purse at each station (so you don't have it on the floor)! The bathroom is clean and has robes in case you have something nice you need to protect, even under the usual protective bib thing Salons put on you. Danica has been doing my hair for 8 years and I cannot recommend her enough! She did my hair for my graduation, my brithday parties and even my wedding, and it was absolutely perfect! Of all the things that went wrong on that day, my hair and Make-up stayed put! *On the very rare occasion when Danica isn't available, Brit is an excellent choice as well! She did my hair and Make-up for a photo shoot and did an amazing job! They have never let me down and I always leave feeling gorgeous! Highly recommended, A+++++!

  • Jan 16, 2015 by Neela H.

    They did a fabulous job for my wedding! Andie came to my hotel and did a sensational job on my hair. I have very curly hair and it's so easy to make it look terrible, but she did a really great job. Everyone I dealt with was prompt, courteous, communicative, and sweet. I would not hesitate to recommend this salon!

  • Dec 28, 2014 by Amanda B.

    Finally found a good salon!  Now, I don't have to wait till I have a chance to go to my regular stylist in LA!

  • Dec 28, 2014 by Erica F.

    I chose Bluebird salon as a potential wedding hair stylist company, after seeing a few wedding photos with hair I liked done by Bluebird.  I scheduled a free consultation, as recommended by their website and the wedding specialist at the Salon.   I'd like to thank Bluebird Salon, for convincing me that it was entirely possible to complete my own wedding hair.  The stylist I was put with for my consultation, it turns out, was leaving the salon and not going to easily be able to be the stylist at my wedding.  While I liked what we developed in the consultation, none of the styles exactly felt like me, or authentic to myself.  I completed a down hairstyle, with curls set and teased volume, a half-up hairstyle that was a bit softer, and a twisted updo that looked okay at first, but got completely bedraggled throughout the day.  I had my appointment at 9am (similar to what I would do for my wedding), and had a 7pm engagement party. By the time 5:30 rolled around my hair was falling out of its updo, and looking a bit scraggly.  There was no way I could wear the hairdo to the party, and I ended up having to wash it out and blow it dry, my regular M.O.  Afterwards I felt 300 times more attractive and confident, which was the seal in the coffin for my decision about whether to use the salon.  I would want my hair to last at least until 7pm, when the reception starts!! At the end of the free consultation, the two young college age staff marched me to the front, told me I could schedule my next 'trial' with the same salon stylist at the location she was moving to, and charged me $60 for the trial I completed that day!!!  A bit misleading when they, unasked, launched into a paid trial when I arrived announcing I was there for my free consultation.  I couldn't even tell that that was what they were doing, having never completed a consultation before, and was incredibly put out by the business practices of the salon if they are going to nickel and dime everywhere and sneak in charges for services that originally were not asked for nor expected to be paid for.   All in all, the salon was pretty, the stylist was friendly, and the hairstyling not bad, although not for me.  I'd give a half a star for that, but the fact that they didn't listen to what I had come in for and gave me something that was far more expensive than I had originally signed up for overrode any pleasing experiences.  Additionally, the fact that the wedding specialist at the salon did not pair me with a permanent employee after learning of the 2 weeks notice of the originally paired employee was a huge faux pas (especially when she send me a reminder email after the date of the employee providing notice). Don't go to Bluebird if you have something specific in mind and have a strict budget!!

  • Oct 25, 2014 by Anna S.

    Adore this salon, at every location they have been in. I usually see Rhyan T. but have seen other stylists there as well, and would recommend all of them. Rhyan has excellent communication skills, especially during the consultation. Even though I have been going to her for many years now, she STILL takes the time to discuss what we (but really she) will be doing. Cute decor, very friendly, and the receptionists all seem to be very professional and presentable, always willing to go above and beyond. Will continue to go to this place, keep up the good work!

  • Oct 09, 2014 by Amanda M.

    I love Lisa!!! I come back from Boise to get my hair done because ever since I moved I can't find someone near as good! I have blonde hair, and those of us blondes know that it's soooo scary to go to someone new, I've had a lot of different green and orange blonde colors!!! Trust in Lisa she is the best at cuts & colors EVER!!! Plus she is hilariously funny and possibly the sweetest person in the world!!! I refer her to everyone and everyone raves about her! She's the best choice you can make for your hair and for yourself!

  • Oct 06, 2014 by Laurén H.

    GO. BOOK. WITH. LINDSAY! The past 8 years I have spent living in San Francisco & New York City - i've had my hair done at some of the most outrageously expensive, famous, and talented salons out there. But nobody has made me happier & as satisfied with my hair, than MISS LINDSAY CULVER!! She has the most incredible energy, the best spirit, and she is SO good at what she does. She helped me figure out what I wanted, made helpful suggestions, and most importantly, SHE DELIVERED. She also gave me some important tips on hair care that I've kept with me ever since. I won't go to anybody else, and the commute from the Bay Area to San Luis Obispo is worth it for great hair (time spent in the chair getting to hang out with such a lovely person doesn't hurt either)! I would recommend Lindsay to ANYONE - she has experience with clients from the young to elderly, and all that lies between. Wide range of talent - from cuts, to casual or funky coloring, & the woman can style. Also, I didn't even mention how affordable she is. Can't wait to go back.

  • Oct 06, 2014 by Emily M.

    I decided to try a new salon (on a whim), and took the advice of many friends and booked an appointment at Bluebird. The place is super cute and the staff was very friendly- except the girl who actually cut my hair. She was new, and just happened to be the one they assigned me when I made my appointment. It was obvious she was only making conversation because she had to, and I felt uncomfortable the entire time. I got a very basic cut- layers and an ends trim- yet she did it unevenly and too quickly. I wound up having to get my hair fixed at another salon. I was super bummed because I'd heard such great things! But my experience there was mediocre at best and I probably won't be going back.

  • Oct 05, 2014 by Robin Aylor

    I have been going to Bluebird Salon for several years! I get TONS of compliments on my hair and am often asked who my stylist is (it has been Janina since Ariel decided to concentrate on business and the move to the new salon). I have never been disappointed! The staff and the other stylists treat me like royalty, or at least like a family member they are truly happy to see! I watch the other stylists when they are working and it is a professional and fun environment...I have to admit that I sometimes bring in photos, knowing darn well I am not going to look like the 20-year old actress or model in the photo, but we have fun with it, and I am realistic! I may not look 20 but my hair looks great! I love the new salon!

  • Sep 27, 2014 by Jade F.

    This was a last minute walk in, the salon itself is adorable! Great decor, really stylish and warm and cozy. Everything is really spotless as well. The reception was very professional and offered tea or coffee. The products were great, my stylist was very friendly and really took her time. After $58 (incl tip) I ended up with a beautiful cut, the only reason for three stars is I didn't get the cut I asked for :( i brought in a pic, I wanted a chopped bob, kind of funky, awkward, European and had taken a while to grown all my layers out in order to do it. Instead I got an A line with high layers in the back, so back to growing them all out again. I think the style is so popular right now stylists just get in the habit of blending blending blending. Wish I would have known it was happening but I had my head down spun away from the mirror until it was too late and she was so sweet and there was nothing to be done about it, I didn't have the balls to complain.

  • Sep 26, 2014 by Jessica G.

    So I see this salon has a ton of mixed reviews so let me lay it down for y'all. Although I cannot comment on the salon hair services (yet) I had such a life changing facial I just want to shout about it from the mountain tops. I'm kicking myself for not remembering my esthetician's name but she was blonde and so kind, informative, and made me feel so comfortable. I've had my fair share of facials but nothing that made my skin come out so flawless as this one, I highly recommend her! The salons aesthetic was gorg, super trendy, girl who checked me in was super nice and I know it's downtown but parking was pretty easy. If you can't find a meter just park in cvs or Wells Fargo, duh.

  • Sep 16, 2014 by Tiffany E.

    I just started going to Lisa Ponce, hair stylist and make up artist, and love love love her! My hair is hard to deal with because it's so dark and I want it real blonde and she knew how to get it where I wanted it without frying my hair! she also really knows how to do an amazing cut and style after! She also just has an amazing-easy going- down to earth personality!The salon is beautiful and everyone is very sweet!

  • Sep 13, 2014 by Natasha N.

    Horrible unprofessional place! Burnt my scalp with bleach and since then I have literally "three hairs" left and my scalp is super sensitive now. Never coming back and never recommend this place! I would give them minus stars if was possible!

  • Sep 11, 2014 by Jessica Q.

    I just experienced Bluebird Salon for the first time a couple of weeks ago.  I have to say I have driven by it hundreds of times, but have never really taken the time to think twice about this place. Everyone working there was welcoming and friendly upon my arrival. The salon was very clean and organized, as well as spacious and open. My favorite part about the salon was the massage chair at the shampoo bowl.  Yes I said message chair - OMG! Such a nice treat, especially for a new mom who barely gets a second to herself! I was in Heaven!!  I had a great first experience there and I am looking forward to going back in the near future! So I guess that brings me to why I even made it to Bluebird to begin with.  I have to start off by saying that I stumbled upon Lisa Ponce Kim by chance about 6 years ago and I will never look back!  When I came to Lisa I had fried, damaged, hair from too much bleaching and not enough care.  She was able to swoop in and save the day.  She convinced me that it would be fine given time and that she would be able to get it healthy.  Not only did Lisa bring my hair back to healthy, long strands, but it is now shiny and soft too.  She is amazing at what she does; there is no doubt about that. Growing up in San Luis Obispo, I have had plenty of time to experience salons in my area and I have never had a better experience than this.  Getting your hair done should be something you look forward to and are excited about.  I can honestly say that I am always happy and excited when it comes time to get my hair done.  Lisa is very comfortable, personable, and easy to relate and talk to.  I thoroughly enjoy my experience with her and I would follow her anywhere.  She is well worth the travel.  Lisa has also been totally patient with me since I had my daughter in January.  She is totally welcoming of me bringing Olivia with me and it is definitely reassuring to know that she is just as patient and kind with my daughter as she is with me.  =) I would definitely give her and the salon a shot!!! I promise you will NOT be sorry!!

  • Sep 11, 2014 by Lauren O.

    There are so many amazing things I could say about Lisa Ponce Kim! I first went to visit her when I got engaged and wanted to start working on my hair to get it to my end goal for the wedding. She was so caring and sweet and made sure that we strategically cut and colored my hair to be exactly what I wanted for the special day. She spent tireless hours on my hair which to say is thick would be an understatement. Lisa always listens to me about what I'm looking to do and creates flawless hairstyles even beyond what I could have hoped EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I will never be able to go see anyone else for my hair - I'm spoiled now! Lisa also styled my bridesmaids hair for my wedding and I have to say that she made the morning so fun and relaxing just by being there with me and my girls. My bridesmaids absolutely loved their hair and it was just so wonderful to have her there! Whatever you're looking for - a new look, wedding makeup, prom hair, anything - Lisa is your girl!

  • Sep 10, 2014 by Ashlee A.

    I have been going to Lisa Ponce Kim for over 3 years now. Before I met her I felt like no one could get my blonde hair the way I wanted it was a constant frizz battle for years! My hair has never been healthier, it looks and feels better than it ever has since I started coloring my over 15 years ago. I would and do recommend going to see her to anyone.

  • Sep 08, 2014 by Kelly T.

    I've been to Bluebird twice now, both times with Olivia. I moved back to the area from LA and took a chance with Olivia when the front desk scheduled me with her. She has cut my hair and colored it, and both times it has been perfect. I feel like I never really love my hair after I get it done, but both times with Olivia I have! I've been to a couple other salons in SLO and many (must pricier) places in LA and nothing has ever compared to Olivia. I am so glad I found her and will absolutely be going back to her.

  • Sep 05, 2014 by Shelby H.

    Lisa Ponce Kim is AMAZING!!! She is so nice and welcoming and awesome with my hair! I change my mind a LOT and always come in asking for something new. Through my ramblings she is able to understand exactly what I want and dye, cut, style my hair better than what I had imagined. Lisa is great with color and she is focused on keeping your hair healthy and not damaging it with chemicals in anyway. She always makes sure I am 100% happy with my hair before I leave. She really cares about her clients and that means a lot!

  • Sep 04, 2014 by Michael A.

    I like things that are awesome.  That's why I like Bluebird.  I'll elaborate. The atmosphere of this place is a little hard to say with just a few words, but to say the least it feels like everyone who works there is happy.  And by happy, I mean it in the deep and meaningful kind of way.  It has a sense of warmness and care that penetrates every minuscule detail, even down to the complementary water (lightly flavored with fresh cucumbers, blueberries and strawberries).  Every time I leave that place I feel like a million bucks.  I highly recommend Bluebird if you're looking for a classy salon with awesome taste.

  • Sep 03, 2014 by Stacy T.

    Three words, Lisa Ponce Kim! I've gone to almost every hair salon you could imagine here in SLO and I think I've found the one. The one hair stylist that literally does it all and does it well ladies. Even if you think you like your current hair stylist and you're doing the same ol' boring haircut/dye, switch it up and try her. I promise you'll be stoked on her work and she does what looks good on you of course. If that doesn't convince you, at the end of your shampoo they have lavender hot rags they massage into your hair, amazeballs. I've seen her work on all ages and she does a fantastic cut and color.

  • Sep 03, 2014 by Allison M.

    I go to Rebecca for all of my waxing needs and she is amazing! Her brazillians are fast and she makes you feel comfortable and keeps you chatting so you don't notice the pain. You can tell she is a perfectionist when it comes to brows! She really takes her time and makes sure you are happy with the results. I have loved every service I've had from her and wouldn't see anyone else!

  • Sep 02, 2014 by Lisa C.

    I wouldn't come here for a facial. The room had no relaxing music. All you could hear was the music and talking from the salon. The room was so bright and had no ambient lighting which is appropriate for a facial. The facial was descent. I'm used to getting my décolleté massaged and shoulders and neck but that wasn't even touched. Very disappointed. The esthetician had a very light touch. I wanted more. She didn't extract important blackheads around my chin. So it was alright. Just nothing special that's for sure. The esthetician didn't even introduce herself. So I don't know her name. The only thing worth mentioning is they use image skin line which I love. And the only great interaction was with the receptionist Haley! She was so super sweet, informative, and helpful. She is also an esthetician who I wished was the one giving me the facial. Thanks Haley for being a sweetie!

  • Aug 28, 2014 by Gretchen M.

    Recently I was in to see my favorite, Lisa Ponce Kim! As always she met me with a warm smile and a great big hug! Then came the fantastic hair talk. She always knows how to make my mumble jumble ideas of modern, yet hip, but classy hair hopes into a badass color and style. PLUS, she takes the time to show this chaotic mom of four some small, quick tips how to style my own hair each day, so that I can feel as beautiful each morning as I do when I leave her salon chair. I adore her and am over the moon thankful to have her as my hairstylist!! Go see her now, today, ASAP at her new fabulous location!!

  • Aug 27, 2014 by Johanna P.

    This review is two-fold. The first is for Lisa Ponce Kim. What an amazing stylist! She has been doing my hair for I don't know how many years now (6...8??) and I would follow her to the ends of the earth! First off, she listens. Not like " oh ya hmmm well we are not doing that" type listening but really listens to what your shooting for.  She knows when I say "I want red!" that means copper and when I say "what do you think about bangs??" that I'm just talking crazy :) Second, she is always learning new techniques and styles, never getting in a rut. Lisa is always on the "cutting edge" (no pun intended) of hair, something you WANT in a stylist. She also gives a magical hair washing :) because, well, she is magic! I could go on and on but in reality, Lisa is one of the best in the business! The second part of this review is for the Blue Bird Salon. Wow. Just wow! What a beautiful, inviting salon and atmosphere! You are greeted as soon as you walk in, asked if you would like water, beer, wine etc and made to feel right at home.  The front desk staff is so friendly and welcoming. And all around great experience! I absolutely recommend Lisa and Blue Bird to anyone looking for a great stylist and salon in SLO!

  • Aug 27, 2014 by Nick G.

    I go to Janina for my haircuts. She is amazing! She does exactly what I want and her shampoo is sooo good. Best salon in town!

  • Jul 10, 2014 by Amber B.

    It's great....Super cute place and staff. The past two ladies I had do my hair really listened to how I wanted my hair cut and were able to actually deliver what I wanted. They have tea and biscotti as well ;p I don't live in slo anymore but when I visit I make sure to come here for my haircut! :)

  • Jun 04, 2014 by Lindsey F.

    I saw Janina in February for cut and color. First off she kept me waiting 30 minutes. Ordinarily I wouldn't mind waiting a few minutes, but I'm busy, hey aren't we all? 30 minutes is just too much.The cut was good but color absolutely terrible. She managed to do everything I asked her to avoid leaving me with bright white stripy highlights in my previously pretty natural looking hair. As the cut was good I rescheduled for another cut-again nearly 30 minute wait. Snobby, unfriendly staff. Overall less than mediocre salon experience.

  • Apr 30, 2014 by Uma H.

    I'm from out of town, so I scheduled and paid for a trial makeup session the day before my wedding. Something in their brushes and/or products made me have a severe and painful allergic reaction the day before my wedding. Keep in mind that I've NEVER had any reaction like that to any products; I've even tested several products at Mac and found no allergies to the products that this salon said they were using on me. After going through the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner in total pain and embarrassment (you can imagine all the questions I got that night), I called the salon the night before my wedding in tears and the stylist showed no sympathy. My eyes were in pain and blood red all day ON my wedding day. Proof? You can see my blood red eyes in all the pictures during the ceremony, family/friend pictures, cake-cutting, dancing, etc. I called the salon about a week after my wedding, and the manager took absolutely no responsibility for it and again showed no sympathy. They wouldn't refund me for my trouble (I'd paid in full for the trial and the makeup session) because it was apparently my fault for having an allergic reaction. Thanks Bluebird Salon, for stressing me out and making me look and feel horrible on my wedding day. I got to experience pain and feel self-conscious all day rather than enjoying the big day.

  • Feb 02, 2014 by Angee J.

    Fantastic cut and color by Olivia. I just moved to SLO and was so pleased by her service and attention to detail. She colored my red hair perfectly, and gave my curls a through and bouncy cut. I will be going back for sure!

    I've lived in the area my whole life, and finding a good hairstylist is something that has simply never happened for me. Until I met Amber. I actually found her when she was working at a different salon, but when she told me she was moving to Bluebird, I knew I couldn't lose her. She always cuts my hair exactly the way I want it. And I am incredibly picky about my hair, always have been, always will be. She's the only person I have ever trusted to dye my hair also. About a year ago I felt like my hair was looking boring and she gave me the idea to ombre it. For the next month, I got nothing but compliments from all my friends and colleagues, and even to this day people compliment me about my hair. I always tell them to go to Amber and Bluebird Salon. I also tell them how cute the salon is. They decorate it every season and it's always amazing! They're so creative with their displays it actually inspired me when I was decorating my house after my latest move. Needless to say, if anyone were to ask me where to get their hair done, I wouldn't even hesitate. I love Bluebird, and I love Amber!

    I've been going to Amber for about three years now. Even though I no longer live in San Luis Obispo, every time I come back into town I still have Amber do my hair. I absolutely love my hair every time she cuts and colors it. She is not afraid to change it up so I don't get bored which is so great! She comes up with styles I wouldn't have even thought of and I end up loving it. Amber just recently did an ombré to my hair and I get complements every where I go. It was just the change I needed. Not only is Amber a great hairdresser she is also an amazing person and a dear friend of mine. Having a hairdresser with a great personality makes all the difference and I look forward to seeing her each time. My most recent visit was at the Bluebird Salon. I loved the atmosphere and how friendly the other hairdressers were and how interested they were in what Amber was doing. I am so fortunate to have an amazing hairdresser. She's the best!

    Horrible experience! First there is NEVER any parking near this salon, you have to spend like 10 minutes trying to find a parking spot and you almost always have to pay for a meter. I parked in metered parking and put money in for 2 hours. My appointment was with Tyler, which I was hesitant having a male do my hair and informed him that my hair tends to pull dark colors fast and that sometimes when I get browns in my hair it ends up looking black. I also let him know that I wanted a warm chestnut color (my hair was medium brown color - hadn't been dyed in about 6 months). He dyed my hair with a semi-perm color and let it sit on for 35 minutes while he went and got coffee for himself. When he came back and washed it out, I still had dye all over my ears and forehead (guess no Christmas shopping for me after that...had to go straight home). I asked for shorter layers and it looked as if he barely trimmed them, my hair was still heavy. As he was blow drying my hair I could see SPOTS all over, as if he hadn't used much dye. I realize these things can happen, but I was waiting for him to say "the color didn't deposit as I had hoped so we are going to put a toner on it." But NO. He did nothing. He acted as if he simply didn't see ALL the spots all over my head and was like "ok have a great weekend!" I was like "ummm. what is with all of these spots all over my head." He played it off and pretended it would go away after I washed my hair. The worst part is that my hair was not chestnut brown, it was black and I hated it. I don't know that much about semi-perm dye but I know it simply does not correct itself. 135 dollars later I had spotty heavy hair and I was very dissapointed. To top it off, it took him 3 hours and I got a parking ticket. The owner or manager of the salon (whoever is attached to the email) was very understanding and booked me with an experienced stylist who corrected everything, but it wasted another 3 hours because she had to fully dye my hair again in the same color and she fixed the cut. I felt the need to tip her because it wasn't her fault and she wasted three hours of her time trying to correct his mistake. So 200 dollars later and a parking ticket I had black hair and a haircut that I love from the second stylist (I wish I could remember her name because she was amazing). If she hadn't fixed Tyler's mistake I would NEVER go here and deter everyone I know from going, but that isn't fair to the stylists who are actually talented. So I am letting anyone know simply not to go to Tyler, he doesn't listen and he isn't accountable for his mistakes...other staff there are wonderful.

    I wish I could give this place NO STARS! I live in SLO. I had been trying to make an appointment for Jinina who my friend introduce to me as a good hairstylist. 2-3 times I went to make an appointment for her about a week later, she was saying that is not possible and I have to make an appointment a mount in advance. Finally for new year I made an appointment from Sep. And I was happy this time I'll check her up. But about a week before my appointment I got a call from this salon which my appointment has been canceled because she's not going to be at work in that day. So, I let them know I won't never ever make an appointment in this place which the people who works there do not care about their responsibility about their job!!! I can't make an appointment this time of year any where els because all the beauty salons are pretty booked for this month. After reading my compliment you can feel how disappointed I am

  • Nov 12, 2013 by Jillian C.

    A couple weeks ago I went in and had Olivia cut my hair. I'm always nervous about going into a salon because I'm so shy but Olivia made me feel so comfortable. She was so sweet and darling. She cut my hair perfectly and it's grown out really nice! I will definitely come back and have her do my hair and it highly recommend her, or any other stylist! Everyone who worked there was so friendly!

  • Oct 24, 2013 by Danielle K.

    Best salon ever! So cute and quaint. Sweet and talented staff! Jessi Campbell is my fave for any hair/makeup needs! Bumble and bumble products make my hair happy

  • Oct 24, 2013 by Jessie C.

    Bluebird Salon is beautiful and I'm always impressed by the creative and classy vibe. It's the perfect San Luis Obispo mix of professional and artsy. Olivia Michel does my hair and I always walk away happy!

  • Sep 20, 2013 by Arianna B.

    I love this salon! It is super cute and the staff was welcoming and friendly! Melissa Eluguera is an AMAZING stylist!! I will not trust anyone else to touch my hair, not to mention the hair of my children other than her!! She has "magic fingers" according to my boys and well I am inclined to agree! She has a real working knowledge of color and the latest styles & cuts! Melissa always has the best tips on maintaining the integrity of your color, makeup applications, and beauty fashion trends! She is just wonderful! I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a stylist who knows what they are doing!

  • Sep 14, 2013 by Kay C.

    I decided i needed a change on a whim and took a chance on one of the only places open later on a saturday in Slo...well it was a great success! I was apprehensive of getting a male stylist at first but tyler was amazing! Not only did he do a fantastic job, but he was so welcoming and fun to talk to. GO TO HIM!

  • Aug 31, 2013 by Julia D.

    I love BlueBird because when Rhyan cuts my hair it looks good when I walk out and every day after that! Do yourself a favor and make an appointment today!

  • Aug 26, 2013 by Amber W.

    So so so happy I gave this salon a try! First off, Brit is awesome!! I had an AWFUL haircut from salon luxe, and Brit is my savior! What started out as shoulder length, thick, blunt straight cut with weird layers ended as a beautifully layered, thinned, simply styled, and just flat out a GREAT haircut from someone who knows what they are doing. Love it! Awesome service, delicious cucumber water, and a great vibe! Will be going back for sure! Thanks Brit!

  • Aug 26, 2013 by Susan K. L.

    Absolutely love this salon. Great atmosphere, trendy but without snootiness or attitude! Everyone there has been friendly and kind. Special thanks to Danica who cuts my hair beautifully! Always a great job and it grows out great too. And she is soooo nice! Highly recommend her.

  • Jul 17, 2013 by Sean R.

    This is my second time coming to BBS. This time I had Tyler cut my hair. I have to say it looks excellent! It nice to always find someone that knows how to do a mans haircut. There is nothing wrong with any of the stylists that work here, but it is easier to explain what you want to a guy and have him understand exactly what you mean. I have never really had any loyalty to one person or another when it comes to cutting my hair, but I can assure you Tyler is who I will be going to from now on!

  • Jun 09, 2013 by Christina P.

    This salon is so welcoming and has a great style about it.  Book a cut with Janina, she is AMAZING! My husband and  I both go to her.

  • May 20, 2013 by Jessica L.

    Hooray for salons that are open late! I arrived to my 7:00pm Saturday appointment about 10 miniutes early, and was seen immediately by my stylist, Jessica Sauzek. Right off the bat she was super sweet and attentive. The salon decor was adorable and I felt really comfortable from the moment I walked in. The scalp massage was freaking amazing, and all of the Bumble and Bumble products smelled heavenly. :o) I told Jessica I wanted to take my shoulder length curly hair and turn it into a pixie cut! I brought a photo as an example, and she actually used it as a reference. Now, I had had this cut before about 2 years ago, and it took a good hour and half to 2 hours from start to finish. Jessica had me washed, cut, styled, and out in about 40 minutes! The cut is amazing and is exactly what I wanted! I've had it for 2 days and have received countless compliments. It was a little pricey at $60, but was totally worth it. I was also given a little sample of the wax she used in my hair, as well as a list of recommended products for styling. So awesome, I can't wait to go back! Thank you, Jessica!

  • Apr 26, 2013 by Cassidy S.

    I absolutely love this salon, they have the nicest sylists and always do the best job ever on my hair. The inside of the salon is also super cool, I love the look of it! Tyler has been my stylists every time and he is amazing, my hair always looks amazing even when I give him very little instruction! He is great with my curly hair! Also the receptionist was able to do my makeup after my haircut and did absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this salon to all my best friends and even my mom!

  • Apr 01, 2013 by Angelina A.

    Cool Vibe, Nice Staff, I always get a very good hair cut at a reasonable price

  • Feb 23, 2013 by Vicki P.

    When I want my hair done right I go to Cindy at Bluebird. No other stylist listens and  has gotten things as consistently right as she has.  Even when your hair is changing, she understands what to do with color and cut.

  • Feb 21, 2013 by Melannie R.

    I love this salon. It's cute and comfortable. I like the location too. Jessica S. is the best stylist I've ever been to. I followed her from another salon that was just ok but I am so happy with her and Bluebird!

  • Feb 19, 2013 by Gabby C.

    Let me start by saying, first and foremost anything that is written is not a personal attack on the hairdresser who handled my blow dry and style last Saturday it is more of a response to the lack of customer service I received. Where do I even begin...? I am giving Bluebird salon one star because I understand people are human and humans make mistakes otherwise I would be giving them nothing. NOT only was I quoted the WRONG price over the phone prior to coming in my hairdresser did an UNFINSHED and MEDICORE job on my hair. I had been looking forward to a formal, gala for over a year and I wanted everything to turn out perfect so I enlisted what I thought was a professional but turned out to be everything but!!! My hair was weighted down with tons of product and my curls were falling flat while leaving the salon. Then the hairstylist proceeds to BLAME MY TYPE OF HAIR. I'm sorry that I have long, thick, and healthy hair-a stylist's DREAM. I was pressed for time so it didn't help that the ENTIRE appt took 2  1/2 hours to inevitably have my hair turn out like I just ROLLED OUT OF BED (please see photos for reference). Really it looked like a HOT MESS. Much to my boyfriend's dismay when he picked me up I was crying UNCONTROLLABLY since I had traveled almost 3 hours from San Francisco to attend an event in San Luis Obispo. My hairdresser offered to "fix" my hair but honestly I didn't have the time nor patience to deal with her or the salon ever again! They charged me $50 (when I was quoted $35 over the phone) and since I was VERY UNHAPPY, not even about the $, I asked to just pay what I was quoted since I would have to spend an extra $75 to get my hair redone and I would be late to my event. It was despicable that as I was crying and stressed (1 hour before the red carpet) they offered me a $5 DISCOUNT! Are you serious!? What kind of customer service is that! I am a natural people pleaser and am very understanding and in my YELP history HAVE NEVER GIVEN A NEGATIVE REVIEW but I couldn't let this go! DO NOT RISK going here especially if this is your first time. TOO bad they couldn't spend as much time and effort on training their hairstylists as they do their interior decorating. Gorgeous décor. HORRIBLE SERVICE AND TECHNIQUE.

  • Jan 30, 2013 by Sara S.

    Jessi C. is amazing.  She takes her time and does a great job!  The salon atmosphere is eclectic and everyone there is very friendly. I've bounced around to several different stylist before Jessi.  I've been with her now for two years:)

  • Jan 15, 2013 by Kayla S.

    I have been going to see Jess Sauzek for many many years, following her from salon to salon. I'm so happy she's now at Bluebird. All the other stylists are very friendly, reception actually knows what they're doing, the interior decor is pretty awesome, and they actually offer me wine when my appointments are after work! Pretty rad. Jess is amazing with short hair. Most of the time I don't even have to tell her exactly what I want: she just knows and  it always comes out edgy, fun and easy for me to work with. I've referred guy friends of mine, girlfriends of mine with long hair, even my mom and aunt to go see her, so I know she's flexible and just as amazing no matter what she's working with.

  • Nov 28, 2012 by Baskin R.

    I'm always scared to get my hair cut in new places but I needed a cut really bad. After checking out every possible salon I decided on this one (it had the most stars and was available when I got a free moment). The receptionist was really nice and had told me what she used in her hair and she looked mixed like I am! I love when other mixed people give me styling tips our hair is difficult sometimes. But anyways I loved the cut I got..layered short to frame my face but she still kept it long enough that I didn't have a panic attack and tell everyone I was bald lol. I would go back if I was ever out there again.

  • Nov 18, 2012 by Bridget B.

    Jenn Hix was the makeup artist for my wedding day and she did a perfect job. Jenn listened to what I wanted as a client (vs. someone who puts you in "their style" of makeup no matter what you say). My look was vintage and done in a way that enhanced my natural beauty. People commented on how great I looked after my trial run, and whoa did I look good the day of my wedding. I could see it in everyone's faces, and Jenn deserves credit for her contribution. Five stars Jenn, great job! p.s. Jessi Campbell is now my regular hair stylist, she also deserves five stars!

  • Nov 16, 2012 by Kelsey S.

    I've been going to Bluebird Salon for almost 2 years now and it's still as good as it gets. I now see Rhyan and she is the best. I have never, ever walked out questioning my hair or the service I have received. They stay open late for those who work during the day, like myself. Go to Bluebird Salon, seriously.

  • Oct 24, 2012 by Kalei W.

    As a college kid, this was my first hair cut in san luis obispo. I walked in this afternoon and they put me in a chair right away! Tyler was my stylist and was really friendly and knowledgable about hair. He gave me the cut I wanted! It looked just like what I used to get in my home town so I felt good about taking the risk of finding a new place to cut my hair. The salon was cute and everyone was nice. I will probably go back if I absolutely can't wait for my next trip home to get my haircut because it is more expensive than my salon at home. It cost $50 for a trim for long hair. Other than that, two thumbs up!

  • Aug 18, 2012 by Samantha W.

    I have really short curly hair, and I let it grow out way to long. I'm never too sure what to tell the stylist.. my hair can be difficult and I wear it short for a reason :)   She asked good questions, and was really friendly, and the salon has a comfortable atmosphere.  I came out with one of the best cuts I've had in a long time. It was $5-10$ more compared to other short cuts I've received, but it was the best one, so I'm not complaining.  I plan on coming back. I also really liked the bumble&bumble product they gave me a sample of.

  • Jun 02, 2012 by Angie B.

    I've never gone in for a hair cut, but I've been in several times for eyebrow waxing/shape-ups and the gals do a great job!!!

  • May 11, 2012 by Aurianna W.

    I just got a cut by Jessi (I won at a charity event). It was amazing. I had been in once before years ago and saw a different sylist, and loved the products, atmosphere but did not like the cut or style. That experience was OK,  but Jessi and everyone else there last week was so great that I might make her my regular sylist.

  • Mar 28, 2012 by Jamie R.

    I haven't cut my hair in well over a year; I was always too scared of any hair dresser because I have been done so wrong in the past so many times with multiple people. I came into Bluebird Salon on impulse and I had the best time. Kelly was amazing!!! She took me as a walk in and for the first time in my life someone got what I was trying to say about my hair. I can't thank her enough and truly feel I have found someone that I can trust and go back to. The reception is so great, they offer you coffee and wine and the girl that helped me was so nice and stylish and very accommodating. The sinks they wash your hair in have neck cushion and massage chairs. The salon doesn't smell like chemicals, it's open and spacious and they all make you feel pretty. I will definitely be back ASAP. Thanks again KELLY!

  • Mar 20, 2012 by Cassie B.

  • Sep 29, 2011 by Damien M.

    I went in and got an amazing haircut from Jessica S. My hair looked like lightning had struck me 10 times and I felt uncomfortable everywhere I went. 10 tons of stress was lifted from not only my chest, but also my head. I left feeling like a midget on platform heels. Thanks Jessica S, your charm and wit and wonderful cutting skills made me a much happier person.  You will be back asking for her if you try her.....

  • Sep 28, 2011 by Jackie L.

    I initially went to Rhyan because I sifted through their list of stylists on the website and she seemed to have the most pictures of clients she's worked on and even her own website.  It seemed like she had a lot of experience and that made her stand out to me from the other stylists. Best decision ever!  Rhyan not only has a super sweet, welcoming demeanor, she is a wizard with coloring-she listened exactly to what I wanted and achieved it almost effortlessly.  The cut is awesome too and I always look forward to going in and seeing her.  I'm totally a believer in Bumble products now, and even though I can't always recreate the style she does for me at home(I'm lazy & short on time) I still love my hair a lot!  Go to Rhyan!! (just don't get her so booked she cant see me anymore ;) )

  • Sep 03, 2011 by Jennifer W.

She's very talented and makes the whole experience so much fun as well as all the other stylists in there :) Also, the salon set up is adorable and all the Bumble products they sell work great.

  • Aug 24, 2011 by Jess H.

    I love Bluebird! I tried a few different salons in SLO before going to Bluebird. I get my hair done by Ariel, and I have always walked out so pleased and excited. Ariel is incredibly talented and whether I go in with a picture of what I want or have no idea, Ariel always make my hair look awesome. They also sell Bumble and Bumble products, which are great, and SmashBox cosmetics, which are quality. From what I can see, the other stylists are fantastic as well. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

  • Aug 21, 2011 by Nicole B.

    I just starting going here about a year ago for haircuts and have really enjoyed my "haircut days" here.  The salon is well kept and they use really nice products......without trying to sell you on them at every trip.  Highly recommended!!

  • Aug 18, 2011 by L L.

    Jess Winstead is a SAINT! I had the most horrible experience at Tiger Lily salon.  I had only had my hair dyed once before and all I wanted was a little more blonde in what was currently an ombre hair style.  This hair style is becoming more and more common so when I asked Amanda at Tiger Lily's to do it she confidently told me yes.  Her idea of ombre must clearly differ from the rest of the world. I am a brunette and she decided to slap bleach on the bottom half of my head.  I won't even get in to using solely bleach on a brunette, but she also left drops near my scalp.  Long story short, I looked like a cheetah.  I called Jess close to tears and she quickly fit me in that week.  Wearing a beanie was not how I wanted to spend my week of graduation.  Jess not only fixed my entire coloring but also fixed Amanda's hack of a haircut.  Feeling sorry for what I was walking around with, Jess also gave me an enormous discount!! Jess has a talent for coloring that I have never seen before.  I constantly have friends asking where I get my hair done.  I will be traveling from the Bay Area to San Luis Obispo a few times a year just to go back to Jess! I highly recommend her!!

  • Jul 17, 2011 by Clayton W.

    Great atmosphere for a salon! I've been going to Sammy for over a year and she has never done me wrong! I refer all my Friends to her and they too love her! She's a great stylist who really loves her job! Defiantly request to get your hair done by her, you won't be disappointed!

  • Jun 21, 2011 by John C.

    I finally got a chance to check in with my go-to stylist Danica at Bluebird and thought it was a great salon. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and offered me a variety of beverages if I was so inclined. The decor is clean, yet fun with whimsical and contemporary elements. I loved the touches of natural wood around the displays and mirrors. The space is good and there are plenty of stations. Everything seemed very clean. As always Danica delivered with a top notch fade and haircut experience. She is hands down one of the best stylists I've found with clippers. Guys... if a fade is your thing she is a must. My wife has also had her cut her hair and she loved it, so whatever you need with your hair, she can do. FYI, she gives amazing head and neck massages as well. Go see Danica for your cut at Bluebird and you won't be disappointed!

  • Jun 06, 2011 by Traci F.

    Blue Bird is filled with great stylists and has a welcoming fun atmosphere. The best stylist in there is my Janina. She makes getting my hair done so incredibly fun. She is talented and very professional.  She can work on curly and strait hair which is great because I have lots of curls.:)

  • Apr 16, 2011 by Adriana M.

    This salon is so cute!  It has an adorable vibe inside and the head massage with the vibrating chair during shampoo time is my favorite!  It kind of looks like Urban Outfitters inside with the colors, wood, and other accents.  Rhyan was my stylist and she made me feel comfortable and did a fantastic job with the cut and style of my long hair.  I swear I went from Marsha Brady to Kim Kardashian in one visit.  :)  I will definitely be going back.  Plus, free bang trims for clients!

  • Apr 13, 2011 by Hannie K.

    Bluebird is bright, prettily decorated, and the stylists give off an aura of competence and style that just makes me feel confident in the service I'll receive at their salon.  The Bumble and Bumble product line is always well stocked and presented.  I have always been able to just stop in to pick up the product I need. I see Rhyan - she's bold, fun, and sooo precise.  Rhyan takes the time to review her strategy with me as well as what we did last time, what we might want to consider doing differently, and the anticipated result and pros/cons of each.  I can't say enough about Rhyan - give her a call, set up an appointment, and get to know her for yourself!

  • Mar 29, 2011 by Colleen P.

    Very cute salon and nice staff.  I always go here to have Natalya do my hair.  She is the first hairstylist I've become faithful to and I hope she never moves out of the area.  I give her a vague idea of what I want done and let her take over.  I always come away from the salon feeling extremely lovely!  Thanks doll!

    My 12 year old daughter's hair needed serious help.  She would not listen to either her mother or me on what she needed (big surprise).  So we took her to Natalya Lovato @ Bluebird.  Natalya was FANTASTIC!!!  She helped our daughter decide on a new style and the cut was great!  Natalya, thank you!!

  • Mar 14, 2011 by Camille C.

    Unfortunately I have to give Bluebird salon a bad rating. Got my eyebrows waxed there for the third time, which was definitely the worst time. All three times my eyebrows have been waxed based on the esthetician's preferences, not my own. This last time my eyebrows were waxed by Danica. I informed her that I liked the shape and the thickness "please just clean it up where it is obvious". Well apparently I wasn't clear enough. I walked out of the salon with my eyebrows half as thick as they were before, a different shape, and different lengths (one started closer to my eye than the other). I'm unsure how you can blatantly disregard the customer's instructions. Don't get waxed here.

  • Dec 16, 2010 by Sara V.

    So great!  Just decided last week I needed a cut and have been holding off because I didn't have a regular stylist anymore.  Called in, the receptionist was nice as could be and got an appointment for that afternoon.  Even though they were a little bit behind, they were still so friendly and didn't make me feel like I was just sitting, they continued to offer me drinks until my stylist was ready. Danica did an AMAZING job and was great to chat with.  It was quick and everything that I wanted.  I even got a little thank you card in the mail from them today.  Fantastic salon, loved the atmosphere, I will certainly be back!

  • Nov 02, 2010 by Brian T.

    As a salon this place is nice. It has character, it's modern, and the workers are very nice. I like my stylist here and since I'm loyal and I never have any problems, I continue to see her and I will continue to come to Bluebird. Whether you come here and get something you're satisfied with is up in the air. It isn't so much the salon as it is the individual stylist. Some will and are of course, always better than others. Cosmology is a skilled art, and not everyone can be a Van Gogh. Sometimes you just get a Thomas Kinkade.

  • Oct 27, 2010 by Kara V.

    I've been going to Ashley Jalving now for almost a year.  I came to her after my last stylist botched my hair... she was able to work her magic!  I love my hair and have loved it since she's been doing it!  I've been getting extensions from the beginning from Ashley and I couldn't complain at all.  I get so many compliments - and no one ever knows that I have extensions!  So lets just keep this out little secret. :)  I had extensions before from other stylists and I prefer Ashley's techniques.  The process she uses doesn't damage your hair and they don't fall out... something common with extensions.  Thanks for making me feel pretty, Ashley! :)

  • Oct 26, 2010 by Ashley C

    I saw Jess yesterday for a hair cut.  I made my appointment the morning of and had a great customer service from the front desk staff.  The interior of the salon is decorated in the style of Anthropologie and had an awesome and eclectic feel.   Jess was extremely thorough in asking what I wanted done with my hair.  She explained the 'physics' of the hair cut and gave me great suggestions for modifications on what I told her I wanted.  She was very open to making changes in length and so on throughout the haircut to cater to my wants.  The haircut was exactly what I asked for and the pricing was reasonable, $45. The salon uses Bumble and Bumble products, which no one can complain about.   They also carry the full line of Smashbox cosmetics.

    I've gone to Bluebird now for 4 consecutive visits - a record for me.  It's got a really warm and vibrant feel.  Jessica is great, I am the first to admit I'm not that great at communicating what I want done with my hair, but she seems to get it because I've really liked all 4 haircuts she's given me.  And she totally understands that I need a low maintenance cut and something that will grow out well -  and she doesn't judge me for it, which is awesome. I do love the bumble and bumble products, and they are surprisingly good value (i.e. the ones I've splurged on have lasted a surprisingly long time, which is great!). I will definitely be going back to Bluebird for as long as I am in SLO.

    Very nice salon. The front of the house is always cheerful and helpful. They always offer you a complimentary beverage while you are there. Jessi cuts and styles hair like no other. But I have had my hair cut by others there and they fit the mold as well. Overall excellent salon and I will be back.

    I came to Bluebird because my stylist (Carlos) switched from another salon. As usual, he did amazing work, and I loved the decor and feel of the salon. I left feeling gorgeous, satisfied, and well taken care of. Maybe this is the Carlos…

    I'm sure some of the other stylists are great, but I am not impressed with my haircut from Sammy... I've had way better. Feel bad since she was really nice, but it's just not that good. I guess it was $45, instead of 50 or 60, but still a lot of money for coming home and re-blowdrying it and fixing up the bangs myself. Won't go back without a recommendation for a specific stylist. Maybe I'm just picky, but it's so hard to find someone good!

    I strolled in here to get a haircut, and have been going there since. They are all so nice there and they were able to fit me in the same day! I could have waited for the next available spot but I was close and thought I'd let one of the other walk ins have it. I have no idea what to do with my hair but the ladies there always seem to have a good idea. I go there all the time now, they do a killer job.

    Dean is the most amazing stylist E.V.E.R.! I have been going to him for a total of 5 years now. I went to Cal Poly for school and since graduation moved to LA and then back to San Francisco. I make the 3 1/2 hour drive just to see him!! He is energetic, funny, thoughtful and not to mention LISTENS to your thoughts about your hairstyle. In the past 5 years, I have never been disappointed by his work and he has always done what I have asked. The salon is great, full of conversation and smiling faces. It's a little oasis where you can relax. Bumble and Bumble products are sold at a descent price. The receptionists are always friendly and they really try their best to work with your busy schedule to fit you in. Further, I think that the dyes that they carry are much better quality than you get at some other salons. All of the staff seem great, but I would 100% recommend Dean. . . you will NOT regret it!

    Way too pricey for the quality! I went in to Bluebird Salon for a partial highlights and a trim (is what the stylist decided after looking at the pic I brought in)$150+tip and 2.5 hrs later I walked out nothing like the pic I showed her…

    Dean is absolutely amazing. I moved away from SLO in June and I just can't find anyone that can compare to him. He always gives me the exact cut that I want and love! He's wonderful at his job and I miss him terribly. The salon is set up really nice and everyone there is very nice as well. They carry Bumble & Bumble (which I really love) and it's just a very welcoming place to walk into. I highly recommend seeing Dean if you want to leave happy :) I'm going to be making 3 hour drives just to get my hair cut with him ... well worth it too!

    I happened to pass by this new, chic salon and I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to accommodate my last minute request for a cut. Rebekah started off with a wonderfully soothing scalp & shoulder massage.   She did an amazing job with the cut as well as the style!   I keep getting compliments on the cut-it was exactly what I was looking for! Visit #2: 1/8/09- I just found out today that Rebekah moved to Hawaii- oh so sad!   However Ariel recommended Julia, who was equally fabulous!   I am so smitten with this lovely salon!

    I don't normally take the time to review things but I have to say Dean Herrington at Bluebird is AWESOME! I am extremely picky about my color and he gets it right everytime.  My best friend has curly hair and makes a point of getting her hair cut by him whenever she is visiting from NYC. I moved here from Long Beach so compared to NY/LA prices my friend and I both find his services extremely reasonable!

    Bluebird is pretty new (opened April 2008)  The set up is nice, very Bambi-ish/foresty/woodsy.  All the stylists seem to know what they're doing, and I HIGHLY recommend Annette, Except she is only staying there until the end of July.   The reason I didn't give this place another star is because of the receptionist, as nice as she is she needs to pay more attention to the phone.
