I love Pompadours!! The atmosphere is clean and sophisticated. The salon has accommodated my erratic schedule and always provided the best service. The stylists are professional and attentive; I never feel rushed. As a professional individual, I value my image - having stylish, well-tended, healthy hair is a must. I highly recommend this salon!!

My friend selected Pompador's for her wedding day hair do (and all of her bridesmaids) despite the negative reviews we had seen on Citysearch last summer.
The Pompadour's experience began with good marketing efforts on their part but ended up a nightmare, especially dealing with their wedding coordinator. On the wedding day we were all disappointed with our hair do's and the salon seemed unable/unwilling to make changes. Perhaps Pompadour's needs to reconsider booking bridal parties as they seemed overwhelmed working with a group.

Ask for Tina, she is a true artist with a brilliant talent for discerning what you want, and translating it into action. I have gotten a cut/color/highlights from her several times, often changing it up for fun, and it always turns out exactly as I envisioned or better. As a bonus, she is excellent at advising ideas if you don’t know specifically what you want to do. It’s difficult to find a hairstylist that you can really trust, and Tina is that hairstylist. That’s the best part of the experience, just relaxing and enjoying yourself, knowing you’re in great hands!

Having lived in DC, NYC, Dallas and many places in between, I've had the opportunity to have my hair styled in some truly wonderful salons and I consider myself a tough customer to please. I have only been to Pompadour's once but with stylists this talented, once is enough to ensure that I will be a customer for life! Eddie worked magic on my hair transforming my dull, overgrown look into a sassy but professional style that looked as fabulous days later when my inexperienced hands did the styling as they did when Eddie first cut and styled it. A good stylist can make your hair look wonderful in the salon but it takes a person with exceptional expertise to cut and demonstrate styling such that you can replicate the look yourself without difficulty. Eddie took extra time from his schedule to ensure that I could style the look myself, advised me on which products to consider purchasing and never once tried to intimidate me into buying more than needed. I have never been to a salon where they suggested rather than forced products on me and I have to say that was one of the most refreshing parts of the entire experience. Eddie is truly a stylist who cares about the person, not the bottom line! I would highly recommend Eddie and anyone on this talented staff!
I was recently in Boulder on business and stayed at a hotel with a chemical problem with their pool. Imagine my shock when I returned to my hotel suite to find my professionally done highlights sporting a green tinge.
The clerk at the desk recommended two salons, but since my salon at home uses Aveda products, I decided to call Pompadours.
I was impressed that they could get me an appointment THAT DAY, but also very grateful...the person I talked to on the phone (I want to say her name was Wendie, but I could be off!) was VERY understanding about having to get my new green hair fixed ASAP.
Andrea (the stylist) stayed past her shift time to accomodate me.
My hair is BEAUTIFUL and I didn't not have to wear a hat to my conference.
I could not have asked for better service.
On my return home, I had all the information of what was done to fix my hair on a card to give to my stylist (given to me by Andrea) who was also shocked I got such quality service with such short notice.
I am in Boulder at least twice a year, and would GLADLY come back!
I've been seeing Eddie for the past year and have always been thrilled with my cut and color. He is exceptionally talented with an uncanny ability to envision and create the perfect style for me.
The staff is professional and helpful. I've noticed that all of the stylists are very capable; I've never seen a person walk out of the salon looking less than fabulous.
It's unbelievably convenient to have the full line of Aveda products on hand. I also like Pompadour's commitment to the environment and the local Boulder area. I don't know why you'd go anywhere else.
I called the salon in tears over a horrible, horrible, horrible style and highlights from another ""reputable"" salon in town. I could not believe how nice and accomadating the staff were. They did everything they could do get me an appointment that fit my schedule as quickly as possible. The stylist and her assistant were wonderful and my hair looks better than it ever has!!!! Special thanks to Wendy for helping me out!
My long time stylist had retired and I was not looking forward to finding someone new. Pompadours came highly recommended by a dear friend and so I tried it. I am so pleased that I did! I got a wonderful cut, the staff was very friendly and the customer service was outstanding!
I am new to Boulder, and found Pompadours through the Aveda website. I was pleasantly surprised at how well I was treated there, even though they did not know me from Adam! I have gone to salons before where I have been ignored because I was not a returning customer.
I went in and left my style completely up to Mick and I love it! Best cut I have had in a few years. I am so glad that I picked the right salon on the first try in my new town! I will definitely be returning to Pompadours.
I was walking on the Pearl Street Mall and spotted Pompadours and walked in on a whim to get my hair cut. They were able to accommodate me right away. Vanessa cut my hair- she is funny and my hair looks fantastic. The other stylists and their clients were talking and laughing. Oh! And I got a killer head massage!
SHAME ON YOU POMPADOURS- BOULDER DESERVES BETTER!
By far the worst salon experience of my life. My stylist cancelled several times but I decided to stick it out and I knew I should have cut my losses when upon my arrival there was a college aged girl crying her eyes out over her cut and the employees offered nothing but a smirk at this poor girl.
Through the entire cut and color the stylist (who I would in NO way consider stylish) proceeded to complain about all her clients that don't tip at least 40% and that the salon's owners would rather NOT have those individuals as clients!!!!! I thought I was a good tipper at 25% but perhaps through the countless appt.'s the salon cancelled on me was their way of getting rid of me as a client. Which seems to be common practice as it happened to my friend as well.
Needless to say I was offended, but the worst part of this experience was: the cut and color were of the same quality as the local Great Clips.
SAVE YOUR MONEY AND SUPPORT A SALON IN BOULDER THAT DESERVES YOUR MONEY, AND BUSINESS. Boulder is too chic and too stylish for this horrible place.
After trying to make appointments for our bridal party, with back and forth emails and phone conversations, Wendy, the wedding coordinator at Popmadours in Boulder decided that ""it was just too confusing and taking way too much time."" Her solution to this was to send an email indicating that our bridal party would be ""better served"" at another salon and promptly, without any warning, cancelled all appointments that had been tentatively set for the wedding day. I spoke with both owners but sadly their customer service approach appears to sync with Wendy's...if you ask too many questions and need extra attention on scheduling (as living out-of-state can bring about!) Pompadour's solution is not to try to come to a reasonable resolution but to, instead, cancel your appointment. Unbelievable, but true.

So I just moved to Boulder about a six months ago and was really worried about finding a new salon. I had three or four people recommend me to Pompadours so I decided to try it. Let me tell you I am so glad that I did. Everyone their was very friendly and made sure all my needs were met. Before getting my haircut they gave me a nice relaxing head massage. I told my hairdresser what I wanted and they went through the pros and cons of the cut that I would be getting to make sure that was the best suited cut for me. The cut turned out amazing and exactly what I was looking for. I recommend anyone who is looking for a top of the line cut or color to go their. Plus they have been voted best in Boulder the last THREE years in a row and have been mentioned in INStyle magazine.. if that doesn't tell you anything

I visited Pompadours for a cut and color. I found the entire experience --from my initial call to set up an appointment through the moment I left Pompadours- to be extremely wonderful. The manager and front desk staff were very helpful and professional. My stylist and her assistant were amazing. I had a thorough consultation before my stylist started and I felt very confident and comfortable that I was going to get the cut and color I wanted. I couldn't be happier and I look forward to my next visit.

I went to pompadours to get a modern-beehive updo for a wedding I was attending. My stylist, Kelcey, asked for a photo by email of the kind of style I wanted before hand so she could study it (how professional is that!) so I had high expectations right from the start. The receptionist was very nice/inviting, offered me a drink right away. Kelcey really took the time to make my hair look great - she didn't rush me out just because my appointment slot was coming to a close. She stayed an extra 30 min to make sure my hair was perfect and that it would stay perfect through a whole night of dancing... which it did! I had so many compliments on the style - people kept asking me where I'd had it done because it looked so beautiful! I was only visiting CO for the wedding (I live in NYC) so I can?t make visiting Pompadours a regular thing but if I'm ever back in Boulder for an event I'll know just where to go!

I have been a client at Pompadours for over ten years. The service, ambiance and haircuts are above par. On a rare occassion, I have had to go elsewhere to get a haircut and I always return to Eddie at Pompadours. My hair is very curly and hard to cut but Eddie always makes it look great! I highly recommend Pompadours.

Excellent stylists and friendly staff. Beautiful views of the mountains. I first came here to get my wedding hair done, and I have been going back to the same stylist since then. My mom uses the owner and her hair always looks awesome. They are a litte pricey, but so is any good salon in Boulder, and they are well worth it!
