One of the worst salons in Houston – Michel's Hair Salon is probably the worst salon in Houston. The owner, Michel, is very unprofessional and has ruined me hair to the extent that he had burned and broken my hair. He spends all of his time talking about other people in a derrogative way, and if he doesn't like you he damages your hair. I have other friends who have had the same experience. He hires people that are inexperienced and unprofessional as well. I know several hairdressers that have left his employment because he is constantly complaining about them. He speaks badly about clients of his. Hardly anyone speaks english in his salon and it is very rude to be in his chair and have him speakling Arabic or Israeli. His salon is also very dirty. I dread having to use the ladies room when I went there. My advice for any prospective client is to stay away.
There are plenty of really good salons that are clean, and do not degrade their clients or other hairdressers.
WORST SALON EVER! – The last two comments didn't even scratch the surface. I agree, the place is FILTHY! Not what you would expect in the upscale Galleria area. The owner, Michel, is in a class of his own to say the least. RUDE RUDE RUDE!! He complained about all of his customers. He BRAGGED about how he has INTENTIONALLY screwed up his clients hair and how he has overcharged them. He bragged that if he doesnt like the hairdressers, he gets rids of them. He said no one stays there long and laughed about it. How sad! He burned my hair because he used a peroxide that was too strong. He left me under the dryer and left. It wasn't until I got up and asked someone if I was ready to be rinsed. He was nowhere in sight. He, like his salon, is dirty and he smells . I can honestly say that I will NEVER go there again. I don't know how he does business, but don't expect him to stay in business long with the way he does business. BEWARE!!! STAY AWAY!
Uggh – I fully agree with last reviewer. Salon is dirty, employees are disinterested, bored and busy on their cell phones. This was my first time there on the recommendation of a friend of a friend. I too overlooked the decor and filth , waiting way past appt. time and rudeness thinking I was getting a really great haircutter.
"Ramsey" was the haircutter. I explained the type of haircut I needed to work best with my hair. He then proceeded to cut what he wanted as if I had never spoken. When he was finished I told him I did not like it
and could he cut it a little shorter and at least get the bangs up to my eyebrows as I couldn't see very well with them hanging half way down my nose. He cut again and refused to cut it any further saying He doesn't cut "Mullets" and that if I didn't like it he didn't care and not to come back. What a psyhco,egotistical, prima donna. Who does he think he is?! I am paying him for a Service, which means he's in the Service industry, which means you cater to the public. He said he would cut the best hair that he thought I should have! I left as quickly as I could and now will have to find someone to fix this mess. I don't know if the owner ever reads these reviews(I doubt it), but this guy has a TERRIBLE ATTITUDE towards clients. I also saw the poor woman that come out before me. She looked shell shocked poor thing. AVOID THIS PLACE.
Worst experience ever! Do not go! – I have to say Michael DeMarse is the absolute worst hairstylist I have ever been to. The salon is filthy & has the worst atmosphere, but I thought I could overlook that for a few hours to get good hair. I couldn't have been any more wrong! I don't know where to start with Michael. He is the most uncomfortable & unprofessional man. He tells very sexually inappropriate jokes & doesn't get the hint when you are speechless. He wrote a book about hair & make-up that he constantly tries to sell you on. He has a horrendous line of make-up that looks like he makes in his garage that he wants you to buy. AND, on top of all of that, I left there & my mom said I needed to get my hair done!!! Needless to say I scheduled another appt that day to get the roots he so kindly missed.
Save your money & sanity. This guy will leave you feeling very uncomfortable & ugly.
