More about Gene Juarez:

The first Gene Juarez Salon was opened by Gene Juarez in downtown Seattle in 1971. As Seattle's first contemporary fashion salon, Gene introduced Seattle women to best in class service, artistry and innovative European haircutting techniques. A few years later, in 1974, the second Gene Juarez Salon location opened inside the original downtown Seattle Nordstrom on Fifth Avenue, offering a connection to fashion and world-class service to our clients.
Since then, through our commitment and dedication to our clients, artistry and innovative education, Gene Juarez Salons & Spas has grown to 10 salon & spa locations, two state-of-the-art cosmetology schools. Since day one, Gene Juarez Salons & Spas has been locally owned and operated in the Pacific Northwest.
