Help Please

Okay so you can only find so many message boards for Eugene. So I've decided to give this one a try. I actually live in Eugene. Have now for about a year and a half. My problem is I am in dire need of a good hair salon. I am a black female so I would prefer a place that specializes in black hair (or at least has a black person doing hair). If anybody knows anything I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

After a year & a half , have you found nothing in Eugene? I read this but if you live there, you probably know everything in town by now- they got Best Hair Salon in Eugene-Winner! Creative Id

"Owners Gayle and John Muckerman have been involved with Creative Id Salon for about 25 years now and have owned it independently for 16."

They do everything-waxing etc.

If you find it just not working for you in Eugene, would you consider coming to Portland, there are certainly plenty of hair salons here and they seem to all be busy ..

Good luck, I know how important it is to feel good about your hair, hope you find something soon :)

Hello there in Eugene! we live in Bend, Oregon and my husband works in Eugene so am over there off and on. Here is my suggestion may or may not work. We moved here years ago and when I left my favorite hair dresser in Roseburg I was at a loss. It was suggested that when I was out and about and saw someone's hair I just loved, I took a moment and asked them where they got their hair done!

One day at our Fred Meyer the checker's hair was just what I was wanting, so I asked, "who does your hair" and lucky for me it was a local hair dresser, whom I called and got info. I made an appointment with her and was the best find ever.

So if you are lucky enough to spot someone's who hair you just love, and are brave enough, just ask them.

Also you may inquire at the local beauty college of salons in Eugene that specialize in black hair. If the salon you call does not often they are good enough to refer you to the specialty you are looking for.

Good luck, nothing better than a great hair dresser!

I have had great luck at the salon at JCPenney at Valley River for what that is worth.
