I booked an online appt for a haircut with Tara after reading her bio. I've had several different people cut my fine, straight hair in some sort of "Lob" or "Bob" in the 7 years I've lived here. Most fell flat. Literally. I knew as soon as she started talking to me about my hair and how she listened that she was going to be just what I've been looking for. She tried different cutting techniques that literally lifted my hair naturally and gave it more life. She is now my "go to" stylist for haircuts for now on. I'm so happy I won't have to hop around anymore. I've found my happy haircut place.
I went to Mint for the first time last week and wow am I happy! Tara Bowden was my colorist and she did an AMAZING job. I wanted to bring my hair to the next level of red and it looks so natural and beautiful. I brought in inspiration images and she did exactly what I wanted and I could not be more happy! She also gave me a hair cut. She is a sweetheart and so talented. I will definitely be going back to her!
I can't say enough good things about Tara at Mint. She's done my hair for years and yet still takes time to consult with me and ask what I'm looking for and make sure we're on the same page with my hair goals. She always nails it and I love that she cares about the integrity of my hair and will never let me push it farther than would be healthy. Plus I love the new space she's in at Mint. Ballard Ave is always a lovely place to hang out and Mint is a welcome addition to the block.
I've gone to Tara for color and cuts and I adore her. She really takes time to listen to what you want and makes sure that you're happy before you leave. On top of that, everyone who works at the shop is very friendly and makes sure you're taken care of. I can't recommend Tara and Mint Salon more.
Tara is the sweetest most attentive hairstylist! She is up on the trends, loves her clients and goes above and beyond to make sure they love their hair. I love her company and the wine is always a plus too!
I hadn't had a haircut in almost a year (after a bad experience at another salon), and my hair was a total mess. I thought I was gonna have to chop it off, it was so dry and full of split ends. I booked an appointment with Tara based on her Yelp reviews, and I was not disappointed! She was incredibly sweet. Even though I really had no idea what I wanted to do, she listened to my concerns about my last cut, had a good, immediate understanding of my hair's texture/density, and was able to give me exactly the style I needed -- one that looks good whether I take the time to dry and style it nicely or not -- while maintaining as much of the length as possible. Thanks, Tara!
I have been looking for a new stylist after mine had moved away. Luckily I booked an appointment with Tara! She was punctual, listened, asked questions about my hair, and made sure I was a part of the process. She was really nice, and I loved my new cut. I have thick and coarse hair so lots of stylists have butchered it, but Tara did a great job! Highly recommend her!!
