Portland >Chameleon Salon and Day Spa
Things get better with time!. Hi there! I started working at Chameleon Salon and Day Spa in August, 2010. We have since then moved to a new (and larger!) location...being able to accommodate more clients, provide a much larger selection of services, and have a relaxing atmosphere for all to enjoy! I am sorry for anyone who had a negative experience here at Chameleon Salon, and invite you back to see (and feel!) all of the improvements that we are proud to offer! It is unfortunate that of all the reviews here on CitySearch, they post older ones for first glance...I invite you to read further, and see what we have to offer! ~ Mara
I can never make an appointment :(.
I have called Chameleon spa a couple of times to make an appointment but they are always to busy. I live a couple blocks away and have wanted to go here regularly but have never been able to make an appointment to even see if I would enjoy going there.
I also signed up for thier e-mails and today I thought I would get in for a last minute deal pedicure but the lady said they were only booking 30min. appointments and pedicures take an hour. I dont understand why they do last minute deals when they only have time for 30min appointments. I have never been to any solon or spa were any procedure takes 30mins? That isnt long enough to do anything:(
We try to accommodate our clients as best as possible and I apologize that we have not been able to get you in as soon as you?d like. When we announce these deals people will often respond instantly to schedule an appointment. We don?t announce these deals unless we have large chunks of time available. In your case, only 30 min appointments were left after other clients had already scheduled appointments filling up the larger openings in the day. Please keep us in mind for the future.
Fabulous Facial. I keep going back for the relaxation facial with Tracy at Chameleon Salon. It is so relaxing that I feel like going to sleep, but I don't want to because I don't want to miss any of it! I recently tried the non-surgical facelift and that was great, too. My skin felt so smooth and yes, younger. I love the funky little room with the quiet music and the very soothing hands. After a week of stress at work, it is the best!
Thanks for the great feedback! We're happy to hear you've enjoyed your services at our salon and have noticed a difference in your skin.
Poor quality facial. Very disappointing experience. Was excited to try out the deep cleansing facial during their "happy hour." The place was pretty much deserted and I could see why. It was filthy and the room cramped. There was even a dead fly in the sheer drapes above the table I was lying on. The facial was basically a wash and tone which I can do myself at home. No mask, no extractions. The worst part was I was charged full price. I will not be going back.
Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us. The facial you requested does not include a mask (detailed product description on our website)& extractions are done by request.Our salon undergoes deep cleaning by a professional cleaning service in addition to following state board sanitation & disinfection regulations.We would love the opportunity to provide a better experience for you.Please contact us directly so we can refund you the $10 difference & schedule a complimentary facial.
A+ hair. The Chameleon is a fantastic and fun environment. I've had my hair done by a stylist there named Tracy and she always does a fantastic job! The owner is professional and has a great relationship with her staff. Everyone I've seen leaving the salon with their new hair-do, mani, or pedi always looks happy and satisfied, just like I do. I haven't had any spa treatments there, but I do have an appointment for a brow wax today. I'm confident it will turn out perfect just like my hair always does! I would definitely refer a friend, because I have before and the results have always been amazing!
Thank you for the great feedback! We're happy to hear that you've been so happy with your visits to our salon. We have a great team and it's nice knowing our clients notice and appreciate that too. Much thanks for referring your friends to our salon!
Got To Try The Brazilian Gloss. I've been going to Chameleon Salon for a couple of years and have always loved my cut and color. I'm not one to want to spend time fussing with my hair on a daily basis though, so Madelyn suggested the brazilian gloss treatment. I'm so happy I had it done. It has made life so much easier. Less than 5 minutes and I'm out the door! I would recommend this salon to anyone. I always have a great time when I'm there and have always been happy with their services.
Chameleon salon...ok to miss this one..
Being new to the NoPo area I was hesitant to jump right in with a new salon. I read the reviews and decided to stop in to make an appointment for a hair cut, eyebrow wax and possibly a pedi. Walking in the floors were dirty. I chalked it up to the weather and proceeded. The salon reminded me of my friends room... when we were 12. Tacky and dirty. The pedi chairs had dust and dirt on them and screamed "yuck". There was no way I was willing to chance getting anything. The "owner" was eating something that wreaked of garlic (I love garlic but not mixed with hair product scent). All in all I would never return to this "salon". I over paid for the service and had to fix my brows when I got home. I'm not one for discount chains but I would go to supercuts before visiting here again. Guess there was a reason the place was empty and I got serviced right away.
Got tip from new friends... "Faces" for brows/face and "Tonic" for hair.
I say stay away.... Sorry Chameleon.

My New Salon. I was making a major and irreversible change to my hair-bangs. Jade was awesome in making this transition possible, fun, and, most importantly, cute! As long as I live in this town, this will be my salon.
Thanks for the positive feedback. We're glad to hear you're happy with the new 'do!
Relaxed, Friendly and Great Service.
I was lucky enough to try Chameleon over a year ago, when I first moved to the area. Usually I see Madelyn, although I've had other stylists perform cuts and color when Madelyn is booked and they've done a great job. I've been trying to grow out a short haircut and she always remembers this and never cuts my hair too short.
Just one example of their outstanding customer service: I let a friend trim my bangs one Saturday morning, and they turned out way too short and uneven (I know, totally my fault!). I stopped by Chameleon with no notice, hoping Madelyn would have time to fit me in. Not only did she make time for me immediately, she didn't charge me. And I love my bangs shorter! Give Chameleon a try, you won't be disappointed!
Thanks so much for your loyalty to our salon and for providing such positive feedback!
Best Kept Secret. Chameleon Salon is a hidden treasure in N. Portland. They use top of the line products, including Paul Mitchell Color and OPI nail products. They even have Vegan nail polish! Ever since I've been going to Madelyn I've been getting compliments on my hair color. The prices are in line with other salons of this caliber, however, they have "happy hour" prices between noon and 4 pm, send out emails for last minute deals (20% off), have really great referral programs and even have a punch card where you can earn a free pedicure or haircut after a certain number of visits. While the salon very charming, the atmosphere is not snooty. Love this little N Portland Gem.
Thanks for the positive feedback. We greatly appreciate your continued loyalty to our salon and your participation in all of our promotions!
