Great Hairsalon and Stylist – After several years of searching for a new hair stylist I walked into Assured Image and found Aurora. Located in the Meyerland Area between Tuesday Morning and Beldens this place is great and very affordable too. Aurora knows exactly what you need and gives a great haircut. I have also heard great things about the Manicurist and Cosmetologist there and plan to give them a try soon too.
Make sure you give this place a second look! – Between Tuesday Morning and a small liquor store on Braeswood off of Chimney Rock is a true Diamond in the Rough!
A girlfriend of mine purchased a "Living Social" deal for me to receive my first Brazilian Blowout at Assured Image II Hair and Nail Salon. I had never been there before but knew exactly where it was.
To be honest, all the times I've visited Walgreens or Chase (since they share the parking lot) I've never paid much attention to this seemingly small salon. Definitely my loss there!! Especially, considering i live less than 5 minutes away and have been traveling for 30 to my current mediocre hair dresser!
What the lovely owner Gwen may lack in rent by choosing a more modest location than some, she definitely made up for in wow factor and consideration for her clients. When you walk in you cant really see the back, just the front counter, comfy waiting area, and available product. But when she takes you around that corner, it's truly an amazing sight. Yes there is the normal salon chairs, dryers, mirrors and what-not, but also several, and when i say several…I didn't count but I would estimate at least 8 private rooms for nails, hair, waxing, facials, ect…a lovely bathroom and another comfy waiting area. In the very back a long line of clean and shiny shampoo bowls. Great decor too. Not to mention clean clean clean!
Now I have a very unpredictable schedule between a rowdy 4 year old, a traveling husband, and a business. I called and requested to get in right away for a Brazilian Blowout since my hubby was finally home, and Gwen herself squeezed me in within 2 days of calling.
I came in on a Friday morning at 10 am. I was nervous. Not to have the treatment done, but that it wouldn't work on my crazy, frizzy, unmanageable, curly (very curly) hair. Gwen eased my fears and got to work right away. She paid special attention to detail…getting even the smallest stray hairs through the special flat iron…even heating up a very tiny one to go back over those baby fine, short, curly, stray hairs. All the while making fun and extremely appropriate conversation.
I'll tell ya, that treatment, and Gwen doing it was worth every penny. I left Assured Image II Hair and Nail Salon looking and feeling like a new woman.
I waited nearly two weeks to write my review because I was worried the treatment wouldn't last or that my hair wouldn't look like it did when she did it…but it did and it does!!!! The best part? I don't have to spend nearly two hours slaving away at my hair to straighten it and then watch it just frizz up anyway in this wretched humidity.
All I have to do is continue to use the special products that Gwen recommended and blow dry. No frizz to be found. And if I want that pin straight look I just have to run the flat iron through big chunks of my hair. No more sectioning into tiny sections and going over and over the hair. I even went to the pool the other day and got my hair wet. It didn't frizz crazily or make me embarrassed to be seen!! lol
My hair is like new hair. My husband said I have "super model hair". For 27 years my hair has made me miserable, but for the last 2 weeks it has made me feel gorgeous.
To say the least, I am very very pleased. I will be canceling my appointments elsewhere, and returning to Gwen. Not only for my BB treatments, but my other beauty needs as well.
I will be receiving a facial there soon. Stay tuned. And get your butts to Assured Image Hair and Nail Salon Pronto!! You won't regret it :)
A color & styling genius – When my long-time stylist (31 years!) moved away, I was devistated until I found AURORA at Assured Image Salon. She's got a real talent for cut and color and is always a pleasure to work with. Flexible, too, which I greatly appreciate! I'm so grateful to have found her (31 more years?!)
Aurora is the Woman! – Aurora has been doing my hair for 5 years. No one in my long years of life has been able to understand how I want my hair to look. Aurora gets it! I have never walked out disappointed. Aurora you ROCK!
Aurora - Terrific Hair Stylist + True Artist – Want to look and feel your very best? Make an appointment to see stylist AURORA at Assured Image II. This lady is a terrific color and cut expert who applies true artistry to her work with my hair. After every visit I feel rejuvenated and refreshed, and am the recipient of many, many compliments about how great I look. Thank you, Aurora!
Great Stylist at a nice nice salon! – Aurora Aurora Aurora!!! is a gifted color specialist! Not only that, but she cut my hair quickly AND with unbelievable precision. She did a Brazilian Blowout for me a month ago and my hair looks and feels fabulous. I am so happy that I found this salon and this stylist.
Aurora Rocks!!! – If you want great highlights and an awesome cut. Aurora is your stylist. She is a true "Color Specialist" If i could get a $1 for everyone that commented on how great my highlights and cut were, I would be a millionaire right now. I have referred her to other friends and they are very satisfied. She has been my hairstylist and color specialist for 3 years and I never had a bad experience.
Aurora is great – A friend had Aurora cut and color her hair and it looked fantastic. The first time I went to Aurora, I said, "Give me a cut and color that will look flattering." She did an amazing job. I've recommended her to several other friends and they are all converts, too!
Francisco gets my highest recommendation – I went to Francisco because I couldn't get in to see the person I'd been referred to by a friend. He did such a fantastic job that now I'm going to him exclusively. In my life, I have never had as many compliments on my hair as when Francisco cut it. He has the ability to match hairstyle to facial structure and overall appearance. He's an amazing stylist and Assured Image is an amazing salon!
Houston's Premier Salon – What an experience! I had the opportunity to visit Assured Image 2 last week and was very impressed. The Salon itself was in immaculate condition. It was a very clean and relaxing environment with jazz music that played throughout which put me in another place. The service I received from the owner Gwen was second to none and my hair looks amazing. I have gotten multiple compliments from both men and women on the way my hair looks. I think I found my new Stylist.
