Village La Salon – Mauri has been coloring and cutting my hair for over 10 years and I would not go anywhere else in Houston. The cut is always perfect and the color always lasts longer than I think it will. The salon services are also very high quality. Roxann does wonderful facials. Parking is always available in the Village across from the salon so that is not a problem. You can't get better services and the costs are very reasonable.
Maintain your great look or get a full-body overhaul at Village La Salon in Houston featuring massage, facials, waxing and more. – The Scene
The best part of this salon's decor is the line of movie stills festooning the entry hall. Once past that photo of a water-drenched Sophia Loren, you'll pay for anything to bring magic to your own merely mortal shape and skin. After leaving the stills behind, the ambiance gets markedly more prosaic--a bit heavy on '80s flourishes, like faux marble pedestals.
Services range from maintenance to reconstruction to luxury. Get average-length hair colored and cut, long hair styled for special occasions, and special service for kids and men. If you're bent on thwarting nature, go for the permanent makeup: eyebrows, lip liner, even full lip color. If you'd rather just feel lovely, ask for the Refresher treatment--a spa extravaganza of massage, honey-almond body polish and reflexology.
Owner lies about price! – Prior to making an appointment for my sister, I called to ask what the price ranges were for a hair cut. The owner said between $50-$75- It all depends on the length of the hair. I said my sister's hair is below shoulder length. She said it will be $50. Feeling that this is a reasonable price, I went ahead and made the appointment.
My sister was really upset with the haircut and said that she cut her short hair, shorter than she wanted! She was furious, gave her credit card, signed, and walked out. I was with her and felt that the owner may have charged her too much, and I was right. She charged her $60! I was furious. I called her to ask her why she did that and she made an excuse that the price depends on the style. She lied because earlier she said it depends on the lenght! Also, I got a haircut from her in April and my hair was upto my midback. She had charged me $50.
Did not meet her customer's needs and lied about the price--- unacceptable!
Great Salon, Great Employees – La Village Salon is a great place for cuts, hi-lites, and facials. I found this salon last year when I moved to Houston by looking on-line; however, I got lucky because the prices are great and so is the service. Mauri and her employees are wonderful and caring. Because I have really long hair, high-lites can get really expensive, but La Village Salon is very reasonable and I always get compliments on my hair.
I find it very sad that someone in the medical field would write such an unpleasant review about such a great salon and such a caring stylist because she became ill during your hair appointment. You, of all people, should be a little more compassionate in this situation. I wish I could write a review on you as a nurse.
awful – There was one stylist and shortly after putting a few highlights in my hair she said she did not feel well and went to lie down. I had to wash the color out myself and leave while she snoozed on the couch and I left with orange hair
If you're looking for a stylist that can read your mind, look no further... – I was really nervous going to a hair stylist that have never cut my hair (let alone try out a wild hair cut/style), but Mari had made this new experience so fun! Mari really made me comfortable right from the moment I stepped in the door. I felt bad for coming in so late but she didn't mind, she gave her 110%. Not only that my haircut accentuate my face but the hi-lights added that extra Moxie. Mari, you have a customer for life! Thank you so much!
Avoid eyebrow threading – Do not get the eye brow threading. My eyebrows looked the same as when I had gone in. At one point during the threading, my eyebrow hair was getting caught in the thread and the lady threading commented that my eye brow hair was long-normally eyebrow hair is always trimmed prior to threading but not here and it wasn't really done afterwards. Stray hairs were also left. I went home and had to fix it myself. The top of one eyebrow was not shaped the same as the other as well. Don't waste your money on threading here.
Warm and Affordable – I was dreading finding a new stylist because I have had many botch jobs in the past. They cared about my experience and they listened to what I wanted. She was upfront about her opinion, but not pushy, and I am very pleased with what was done. My hair is not easy to work with because it has a big time mind of its own. They are experienced with curly hair and my cut looks great. Thank you very much!
PS. The parking wasn't a probem either because they have spots reserved right infront of the door. (yes!) and they have DISCOUNTS that made it especially affordable. Definitely my new salon, I'm looking forward to a facial.
Happy Long Time Customer – I have been getting my hair cut at Village La Salon by Mari for as long as the place has been open - about 10 years! Mari manages to make my hair cut look fresh and different every time I see her. Once in a while I will opt for highlights as well and find her to be one of the best colorists I'v ever been to. When I really feel like pampering myself I will also book apointments for a pedicure and massage in addition to my haircut and come out feeling soooo good. Definitely a good experience.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SALON – I highly recomend this salon!! I decided to take my mother on mother's day to show my appreciation. I found Village Salon and the host was so generous i called her to make a reservation and she set every thing up for my mother we both got facial and wonderful massages and seaweed wraps it was the best time we've had in a very long time!! They even had a variety of resteraunts that we could order from and had luch there!! It was very nice!! I highly recomend this salon!! **** (4 stars)
