In 1971, the first Gene Juarez Salon was opened by Mr. Juarez in downtown Seattle. As Seattle’s first contemporary fashion salon, Gene Juarez 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 and two state-of-the-art cosmetology schools. Since day one, Gene Juarez has been locally owned and operated in the Pacific Northwest.


Gene Juarez is proud to be the official beauty sponsor of the Seattle Sea Gals. Stylists get Sea Gals game day glammed-out with hairstyles worthy of their signature hair flips. The Sea Gals always have their hair, nails and skin in perfect condition; we love to help the them look their best and keep Seattle full of pride! Join us as we cheer on our local team with a Gene Juarez twist.
