Best salon to get a Brazilian wax done at – I had a brazilian done at Spalon about a month ago and was so satisfied with every aspect of the service that I will most likely be going back there for my monthly wax from now on. I cannot speak for other salons in the West U area, but I can say that the brazilian wax at Spalon is superior to Beautique's (in Rice Village) in both price and quality of service. Alisa, the esthetician at Spalon, has a demeanor that puts you at ease, which can be a significant plus when it comes to something as potentially unpleasant as waxing. Alisa's service was professional, precise, and surprisingly painless compared to my experience at Beautique. In addition, a brazilian at Spalon costs $45 (reasonable in my opinion), whereas I heard Beautique recently raised their price to $55 (subject to verification). What really impressed is that toward the end of the wax, Alisa was attentive enough to use a pair of tweezers to pull out by the root, one at a time, the hairs that were too short to be waxed off. I feel that details like these are what set great service apart from good service, and I will definitely be going back to Spalon in the future.
Wonderful Salon – I was browsing through Citysearch looking for a reputable salon were I could get my hair cut and styled. I came upon the stellar customer reviews for Spalon and decided to go and try the place out. Lucky for me, I was able to get an opening at short notice. Peter did my hair. I absolutely loved how he examined my hair and asked me about my concerns as to the kind of hairstyle that I want. He then proceeded to explain to me what he was planning to do, all the time taking into consideration my requests as well as his own expert advise. He was very professional and friendly the whole time. This helped put me at ease. Peter is not only nice, he is a wonderful hairdresser too. I just love the hairstyle that he created for me. Would defintely go back to Spalon for my next haircut.
Best haircut I have ever had!!!! – I have had my hair cut in a lot of high end salons in Houston, but Spalon was by far the best! Peter was meticulous, attentive and very thorough. He spent 15 plus minutes just looking at my hair and talking to me...not AT me. He made sure I was comfortable with what he was going to do before he even began cutting. He took his time and was very interesting to talk with. I highly recommend this salon. The staff is also very nice and the atmosphere is relaxed.

I HOPE ALL OF YOU THAT R STILL SEARCHING FOR A GREAT WAX GIVE HER A CHANCE .I DID AND I LOVE IT, I am going to have a facial next week with her too.
Best and most professional haircut in town – I had a great haircut with Peter at Spalon. He spent alot of time looking at my hair, BEFORE being shampooed, which I think is the sign of a true expert. How can anyone tell how your hair is when it's all wet?
Then we discussed my lifestyle (want a great cut, but no fussing), and I ended up with a perfect cut. It's so cute, and I've had so many compliments! So glad I found this salon and a really professional stylist!
The salon itself is clean, cute, has a great vibe. Everyone is friendly, but professional.
Alissa was great! – I have a regular aesthetician out in The Woodlands but she was on vacation when I desperately needed some facial help. My sleeping patterns have been awry and it shows in my skin (breakouts). I looked around online and found great reviews for Alissa and called Spalon. Unfortunately, they weren't able to fit me in that day -- but 15 minutes after I called, Alissa called back (she found me on her caller ID) and asked if I could come in because she just had a cancellation. I was elated! I went in, not knowing what to expect, since I love my regular aesthetician.
I told Alissa about my skin (acneic, very sensitive, oily, cannot stand harsh chemicals) and she listened and understood and didn't use anything harsh on my skin. Most aestheticians would just *ignore* me and use whatever they think is best (even though we know our own skin best). But Alissa was fantastic and really listened and understood and helped my skin.
Alissa's extractions are thorough and fantastic. They aren't painless, I'll admit, but she will get to every last pore on your face to make sure nothing dirty is left inside your skin. Her hand are quick, however, so any pain is momentary while the benefits are lasting. I would highly recommend visiting Alissa to see how thoroughly she will clean your skin.
Alissa did not push products on me but offered several samples when I left. I LOVE it when spas are not product pushers.
The massage during the facial was also fantastic. Most aestheticians do not have enough hand strength to do a good massage but Alissa is not so. Great pressure and great massage techniques -- the entire experience was very relaxing and I am glad I have found a back-up aesthetician in the Houston area.
I would highly recommend going to visit Alissa. They used MD Formulations, Skinceuticals and Guinot (Paris) skincare products.
Great facial and best hair cut ever – After reading the reviews I was anxious to give Spalon a try. At different intervals I have had a massage, pedicure, facial and hair cut. The facial was so relaxing and Alissa was just a joy to be around. As mentioned in other reviews, it is nice that there is no pressure to buy the products they have available.
I have been going to The Beautique for a little over a year and was not very happy with the results. Peter set me straight about a few things (You want a body wave?!?! Exactly how old are you??), then got right down to business. I have never been happier with my hair - I just love it. I didn't want it to look like I was trying to look 20 again, but I didn't want an old lady hair style either. He cut it just right. Like the first reviewer mentioned, you go in with a cut and come out with a style. I need a color touch up now, so that will be the next service I receive from Spalon. Give them a try and you will be completely satisfied.
relaxed and not stuffy – I stopped into Spalon hoping that someone would have time to cut and color my hair. I was immediately accomated, Jennifer helped rescue my old highlights without damaging the rest of my hair. I will definately be back!!! Thanks J.J.
Great Cuts – Peter did a great job on my hair. I came in with hair that was too long, too damaged, and way out of date. Peter listened to what I wanted and did exactly that with a touch of his expertise. Now my hair is stylish and much healthier. The atmosphere is personable without any snobbery. A big plus for me was there was no sales pressure to buy products.
Great Value -Excellent Results! – Not often do you find one salon that addresses all your beauty needs; but ,I have found it. My esthescian, Alissa Valen and hair stylst, Peter Spann provide their personal touch to every aspect of the service and beauty health products offered at Spalon. From the minute I arrive, I am their main concern. With experienced listening skills, they provide me with practical feedback that address my specific beauty regime needs with no product pushing.
Spalon's atmoshpere is not just a business , but a way of life.From personalized skin care consulting, to massage theraphy, Spalon's first and last prioity is you. To put it bluntly, if you want to treated like just another number go to any of Houston's "big" salons that tout " Full Service". But if you want a be treated like you are their most important client go to Spalon where you can't find a better price for the service with excellent results! My skin and hair look great!
