Godawful eyebrow wax, nails OK, pedicure bad – I can't comment on the hairstylists here because I didn't get my hair cut. I moved from Austin and went to MK on the recommendation of my salon in Austin. Before committing to getting an entire facial done by their esthetician, who is some dude that is a contract hire, I scheduled a brow wax. This guy completely molested my eyebrows. I knew before I even looked in the mirror that they were going to look awful because he did the entire thing with only three strips--one under each brow, one in the middle. Sure enough, my brows were uneven, one had been chopped off on the side, and they were rounded like half-moons...looks like my little cousin did them while she was distracted watching Hannah Montana. Plus NO prep, NO lotion afterwards. This guy was TERRIBLE! I had to wait two months for them to grow out before going to Spalon on Bissonett for corrective waxing....Alissa at Spalon is FANTASTIC, I 100% recommend her. She also agreed that the MK guy butchered my brows.
I had a fill done by Amy...she did a good job. I also had a pedicure by Thanh....lackluster. The water was tepid, she didn't have enough strength to use any pressure in filing or massage so it just tickled more than anything.
Also annoying: for nails and waxes you can't pay by credit card, so bring your checkbook (if you even know where that thing is anymore). Ugh. MK = no goods.
stylist Berry – I have been to Michael Kemper's Salon twice, each time was a very good experience..I will keep coming back..Yolanda washed my hair each time, her scalp messages were relaxing, and she made sure I had coffee or tea if I wanted it..Berry was my stylist each time, I like the hair cut he gave me..He is an expert at making one's hair look and feel better, he was fun to talk to..I will keep coming back...It was a treat to spend part of my day at the salon, then meet my sister to go shopping in the nearby area.
Excellent Experience – I would give a 5 star rating if I had more experience with salons; but, this is my first time. Being new to town, I wanted to avoid the several days usually needed to allow my hair to look good after a barber's work. Michael Kemper Coiffeur met my expectations. My appointment with the boisterous and lively Florence ("Flo") added another dimension to my experience here. Flo served me tea, provided several books with hairstyles, and spent adequate time discussing the options for my hair type. She was also knowledgeable about the area as I assume a hairstylist should be. My appointment ended with her giving me instructions on how to care for my new style and her choosing some "product" for me to use. My return visit was equally as enjoyable, and I certainly recommend this location for men's hair care.
Shawna Barton an amazing hair stylist – I went into Michael Kemper to get my haircut by this young lady named Shawna Barton and I was blown away by her performance. Shawna was prompt about my haircut appointment unlike other high end salons where I am waiting at least 15-20 minutes to get my haircut. Shawna offered me a drink while I am sitting at her station to get my haircut where other salons I have to ask if I can have something to drink (which is usually nasty water). She was very nice/friendly and you could tell that she wanted to become your friend and she was not socially retarded like other hair stylist, or a chatty Kathy.
The process of my haircut was just phenomenal. She asked what would you like to have done to your hair and we talked about it while I was getting my hair washed. She even went out of her way to show me some photos of hair styles that I might be interest in. The photos were not from some hair book that was three years old, but from current magazines. The washing of my hair was very nice/relaxing and the products were superb and not the cheap products other high end salons use, and there response is that this is the best product on the market (yeah right).
Finally, the actually haircut was priceless. The time that she spent cutting my hair was unbelievable. She never used the clippers at all to cut/trim my hair, just the scissors. The quality was outstanding and she was not rushing to hurry up and finish for her next client, or go to lunch. Shawna was completely confident in her work and she took her time to get it done and she was happy when you were happy with your haircut.
I would definitely recommend Michael Kemper?s as well as getting your haircut by Shawna Barton. I have received a ton of complements from the people I work with to my family and friends, and they all asked where did you go and who cut your hair. I hope this review helped out and you should call this number 713-877-1645 to schedule an appointment with Shawna Barton at Michael Kemper.
Loved this Salon – I absolutely loved this salon, my experience here was without a doubt the best i've ever had at a salon. I was treated like i had been a client of the salon for years from the moment i walked in. I had read a few of the reviews of the salon and decided to make an appointment with Brad (for a facial) and Shauna (for my hair). They did a fabulous job! Extremly professional. My skin has never felt better and my hair looks amazing. I would highly recommend the both of them to anyone, they're so great!!!
LOVE IT! BEST IN TOWN! – This salon is truly like going to see family. From the moment you ride up in the glass elevator you immediately feel welcomed. I have had the most incredible facials by Brad EVER!!! I am a client for life!
WORST CURRUPT SALON IN HOUSTON, YOU WOULD GET BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE AT SUPER CUTS – This is the most corrupt salon in Houston. DO NOT GO THERE. I had an issue with a stylist there. I tried to reason with management. Angie, the manager, obvoiusly has some mental issues. They have no customer service. I would not recommend this salon to anyone. You will get your hair ruined! Stylists go in and out cause it is a very unpleasant place to work. DO NOT GO THERE!! Do NOT ENTER! I would not trust any of the stylists there. There seems to be some very underhanded business going on there. Angie needs to learn some serious customer service skills. She acts like a kindergartner. This salon needs to be reported to the authorities. They do not insure their hair stylists!! BEWARE!! DO NOT ENTER!!!!
User review by whitestar23 – I just recently moved to the Houston area and was having a hard time finding a new stylist that i felt comfortable with. I had already visisted a couple of salons but wasn't having any luck in finding someone that really did a great job on my hair. I decided to give it one last shot in finding someone in houston to do my hair before going back to Austin to my previous hair stylist. I made an appointment at Michael Kemper Salon with Shawna. She did an amazing job with my highlights and my cut, it was exactly what i wanted. She was so sweet and knowledgable which put me at ease. I can't tell you how relieved i am to have found someone to do my hair. Just wanted to share what a wonderful experience i had with not only with Shawna but with the entire salon itself.
