Bellevue's Gene Juarez is the 2018 Salon of the Year

Locally, we know Gene Juarez as great hair stylists, colorists - and general spa enthusiasts.

But now the whole world knows them, and their Bellevue location specifically, as the 2018 Salon of the Year by national publication, Salon Today.

The salon at the Shops at Bravern won out over hundreds of submission to reign supreme.

What set the salon apart from the rest was it's nod to the Pacific Northwest. Inspired by a loft, the 16,500 square foot space has 60 client stations, a shampoo "oasis", mani-pedi station and a private men's spa with beer on tap.

“The space is gorgeous,” Gene Juarez president, Scott Missad said. "But I am more proud of our people, of how they have moved in and made the space their own.”

Big congrats to GJ! I guess it's time to book my highlight touch-up now...
