Horrible. Rude, obnoxious owner. charming employees but I think the shampoo guy was on something and when he talked he kept dripping saliva on my face.
When i asked the owner not to break my base he threw a fit.
I will never go back.
I learned my lesson! #1 ALWAYS read reviews, and if you have a stylist you love, treat him/her like family.
It took me over 3 months to write this. i do not like writing negative reviews for small businesses in this economy, but everything horrible you read about the owner is true, and if he chooses to lash out at me like he did the other people that spoke up, it will simply verify that he does not wish to acknowledge his faults or apologize. Your clients are your bread and butter. Treat them kindly and they will treat you kindly in return.
I do have a few good things to say. The young man at the front desk and the assistant manager were very nice. I did not have to wait long for my appointment, The other stylists seemed very friendly, and the fruit water was delicious.
Still. If I get my hair colored, it will be Angela at Myth or Sebastien at Bella.
New Client – I just moved to Houston and needed to find a salon. I've had the same person do my hair for the past 10 years, so I was nervous about someone new doing it. But I was about to start interviewing for jobs, so I really needed a cut and full highlights. I called White Salon and they set up an appt for me with John. He did such a great job! The color was perfect and I loved the cut. I feel that some stylists don't really listen to what you want and instead do what they think looks best. But John really listened to everything I said and did exactly what I wanted. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it was a little pricier than my old salon (about $75 more). But it's such a nice salon; everyone is very friendly and the atmosphere is great. I will definitely be going back--good stylists are hard to find, so I'll definitely be going back!
Amazing Experience (Eventually) – I should have read the reviews before but I got David (the tattooed guy) and I was not a happy camper. Everyone was so nice and the salon was beautiful which really made my stylist seem out of place. When I called back to let them know I was not pleased, Bruce talked me into coming back and assured me the old stylist was gone. I got Kerry! She not only repaired my color but gave me one of the best haircuts ever. I will definitely be returning to her. I am glad I called back or I would have given 1 star.
What a truly dreadful place! – I was "styled" by the tattooed guy with blond spikey hair. The color and cut was so bad I had to go to another salon to get it fixed. Big chunks of hair were left dark and the cut was so poorly done. It looked like a kind of 80s shag. I would never go back.
This place is a joke – I had high expectations of this salon after reading the good reviews. It turned out to be one of the worst hair salon experiences in my life. When I called to make an appointment Bruce the receptionist was very nice and accomodating and gave me an appointment with the owner Gerry. When I got there and he found out I had a coupon I was given to a very young and inexperiened girl to work with my damaged hair. I didn't appreciate that but she was very nice and I could see she was working hard to try to please me. I ended up telling her to do the minimum and just give me a trim and touch up my roots as I was afraid of being very dissapointed if she messed up. All this time Gerry was walking around eating and talking. I came away with my hair basically looking like it did when I walked in. If only they would have done a good job they would have had a repeat customer as I am always looking for a good stylist.The next day I had to go to my guy at Visible Changes and fix it up for me. It looked so much better after that. I would say don't use this salon as they don't care about you only your money. The owner and Bruce seem very snobbish. Save your money and go somewhere else. especially if you have a coupon for this place.
Wonderful Experience – Loved my experience! I received great care - was comfortable and felt at ease. The color and cut were great! I received so many compliments at work the next day. I will definitely return.
...damn, whitney. – Pretty amazing, I have been going here for about a year and I have to say all of my favorite and best haircuts/styles have happened within that year. Whitney does an amazing job, I always prefer and trust her expertise in what is best for my hair. She always takes her time and is extremely deliberate in her ideas/decisions.. she always sees these ideas/decisions through to perfection with her clients. Truly an artist. The rest of the staff is extremely friendly. The pricing is very reasonable and the facility is also pretty f-ckn sweet. I couldn't expect a better experience..well unless they started providing happy endings ;) and midgets that juggle....oh, i also love the cute little gay guy that answers the phones. ahh, he is such a sweet guy...i think his name is bruce? anyways, he always keeps my glass of wine full when i am there. overall borderline amazing.
Great cuts, nice folks! – Love love love this place! I have been seeing Allison for haircuts for the past year and can't say enough great things about my experience at White Salon. The staff is friendly, the haircuts are great and they are always willing to work you in for an appointment - I will be coming here for the long term!
Wonderful Experience – I've lived in Houston for many years and I had tried many salons without finding one I cared for. I've been to the White Salon at least three times now for either a cut, color or both and each time I was impressed with the results. I had my hair colored and highlighted most recently . When I went in I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted so my stylist, John Ritter, recommended what he thought would be flattering for me. I was extremely pleased with my color. It came out perfect and even though I did not get a cut my hair was still styled beautifully after. I also found the staff extremely friendly and polite.
Friendliest Salon Staff in Houston – I love this salon! I've been in twice, both times with Ashley and she is absolutely amazing. She's great at what she does and she is so sweet.
I'll never go anywhere else for as long as I live in Houston.
