Bad Experience – The dresser that cut my hair had 10 years of experience, but I believe since I was getting a discounted service through Living Social, he didn't want to spend time with me. (I thought that was because it was Saturday, but reading other review I realized that it was because the voucher).
I told him what I wanted, along with showing a picture and explained to him every detail about how I like my hair especially the fact that I don't have time to style it on the daily basis.
I repeatedly asked his opinion if I had made a good choice considering my type of hair and he told me it was a good option. When he left me alone a few times during our "conversation", I should have realized that he was not paying attention at all to what I was saying.
When he finished his service he asked me how committed I was to making my hair pretty and like I told him before, I don't have time to style my hair every morning. So he told me that in this case, my hair would not be as good as I wanted.
At this moment, I was sure that he never really listened to a single word that I had told him... but it was too late.
And also, the final straw was that the hairstyle was not even close to the picture showed him.
A week later I realized that his goal was to promote "The Lion King" movie... because it is exactly how my hair looks like, the lion... congratulations! At least I already have an idea what will be my Halloween costume for this year!
Not Even Worth 1 Star – The most absolute miserable atmosphere I have ever been seen.....The majority of the stylist seem to hate their jobs and mostly each other...I have never been in a salon were the stylist are apparently not allowed or do not want to have any type of relationship with their clientele other than on a business capacity......The stylist do not smile and just look as though they would rather be anywhere but at Clique Salon....good grief change careers or change salons!!!!! The only reason I give them 1 star is for location......Please Please do yourself a favor go elsewhere....
Oustanding customer service and Skilled stylist! – I hate the cost of a high-end salon, but Clique earns my patronage:
So, for the last ten years, I have had really long hair. I always trimmed my own ends and bangs because I didn't see the point of paying salon prices to maintain my no-frills look. Flash forward to now, after hacking off 14-16 inches for Locks of Love, I wanted a specialist to make the cut right.
Trish was my gal!
She created a perfectly shaped bob that accentuated my face and had all the right angles. She even managed to cut my bangs well despite my darn "cow lick" right at my hairline. She really took the time to listen and interpret what I wanted into what would work.
We even added color! Since high school I had always dreamed of having some cool burgandy highlights, but never colored my hair. It just seemed out of place, but Trish picked the perfect shade and seamlessly added it to my hair. Seeing how great it looked was enough to make this stoic customer giggle!
I've been back three times since. Trish has always done great.
Oh, and there was a frustrating mix up with the receptionist, which had me fuming enough to consider never returning, but Trish intervened, got the manager Natalie involved, and in the end, Clique saved the day and had a satisfied customer. They are willing to work to solve problems, as long as you give them the chance.
very nice experience – I got there because of living social deals offer - as the salon is upstairs I wouldn't probably notice it but thanks to a coupon I went there.
I love the location in Rice Village and the salon is quite big and nicely designed.
Receptionist is super nice and very patient.
I didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes. I was offered sth to drink.
My hairdresser Erika did a good job on my hair - I like the haircut, I like the color, I loved the massage of my head and neck. I really got relaxed which does not happen to me very often.
Hair cosmetics are not overprized and the choice is quite big.
They validate the parking ticket so there's no problem with parking as Rice Village is rather tough to park outside.
I will definitely come back there.
Clique Salon in Houston Pavillion – I went to the downtown location of Clique Salon-1201 Fannin and was very impressed. Great atmosphere, perfect location. Ashley did my hair and I love it. Going back for highlights!
THE BEST! – I loooove Amanda!! She listens to what I want and accommodates ten fold! By far the BEST stylist I've ever had! The salon is very welcoming and they will not only offer you wine and drinks but if your hungry will give you menus of nearby restaurants .. totally amazing! I've never had a bad experience visiting this salon! Amanda is the gem of this place, book with her for sure!! Love her!
I went to this salon 2 weeks ago after searching for a new stylist. I heard about Trish at Clique in Rice village and decided to give it a try. The salon was very nice . Trish greeted me and consult about my color and cut. She was really thorough with my questions I had. I got simply color for low maintence and a layered cut. It was a very nice brown color and I Love the cut! My husband even complimented on my hair (normally he doesnt ever notices it.). Thanks Trish!!
Worst Haircut I've Ever Had – I went to this salon on the basis of a friend's recomendation. As she has great hair, my expectations were high that I too would have a good experience. Unfortunately, that was not to be the case. The first thing I noticed was that they were playing very loud music like what you would hear in a night club which is not my idea of a relaxing atmosphere. Next, the stylist I had, Trish, didn't listen to a thing I said regarding my hair. I told her that I wanted the color to remain close to the same (it was a reddish brown) but that I wanted the color to be more intense and a deeper red. Somehow, this got translated into a want my hair copper with blonde highlights. I went back a second time to have the color corrected and while it is better, it is still not close to what I had envisioned. Worse than the color though is the actual hair cut. I explained to Trish (as I always do because I know how my hair behaves better than anyone) that my hair is curly and it shrinks considerably after it is dry. She didn't listen and cut my bangs while they were wet and cut them WAY too short and at an angle so that one piece sticks out now and the sides are curled and puffy. I can always tell when it's been too long between haircuts because I resort more often to ponytails and headbands but, I have NEVER had the expereience before of needing to resort to that for a brand new haircut. Extremely disapointed and won't be back. Don't let this woman touch your hair.
Rushed and Expensive – The first thing I noticed was that there was no wonderful smell when I walked in which is typical of an Aveda salon. My stylist, Trish, rushed me in and then rushed me out. It seemed she was making comments about my hair that were rude and she seemed snobby. I've never had a cut for that price and I go to Aveda always so I was very displeased when she didn't do an aromatherapy massage before my shampoo and when she acted like she was in such a hurry to cut my hair and get me out of there. While drying my hair she had the dryer on the hottest setting and wasn't moving it around and she burned my scalp in 2 areas. The manager was in the front when I left and she rudely said "thanks" and didn't even look at me when she said it. Not what I'd expect from an Aveda salon in the least. For $65 I expected a little more personalization and calming experience. I will never go back. Oh, I also asked for a $50 stylist and I got a $65 stylist, but didn't find out until they asked me to pay. This place isn't worth it. Find another!
SO BAD! – I have been to this salon before and have had some mixed experiences with haircuts and highlights, but this last experience was the last straw. I had the worst color experience ever. Not only did they not listen to my request, they were obviously reticent in how they did the hair color. My hair was a disaster with patches of different colored hair that was inconsistent throughout. Worst of it all, the stylist told me that there was no issue with the color and that it looked fine. I left the salon to meet friends, and they could not believe that a stylist would let me walk out without trying to fix this disaster. Never again!
