Studio3 – Cynthia, Cynthia, Cynthia!
AND they found a real TOY for my baby girl to play with while she was waiting!
Also, they use great products on your hair. The place looks very nice and upscale, but the atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. What a nice combination -- a real treat to go there.
Pamper Yourself, best style, cut and hair color – I just went there 2 weeks ago. My friend recommended Cynthia. She is amazing! She did a custom color and cut on my hair that turned out fantastic. I enjoyed the conversation.
Great product selection, professional staff. The salon itself is very clean, relaxing and comfortable.
Pamper Yourself !
Sterling in every aspect!! – The hairdressers are amazing - "Darcy" is "Studio 3" - (and you have to meet the other owners Jennifer & Laura) this is a special salon (to me) because they cater to disabled people like me.... The Positives are excentuated regarding each and every client. You'll feel like you're the only guest.... I'm partial to Kim & Jenna - and don't miss Aimee - she's a fantastic makeup artist. Studio 3 carries THE BEST Hair Products such as Kerastase, Shu Emura -- don't know if I spelled the names correctly but they're AWESOME products! Worth every penny. Hope you guys win BEST SALON! You've earned it!!!
The Best!!! – Love Studio 3!!! I have been going to Darcy for FOREVER and she is the best! I live in Austin now and I drive three hours to Houston for my hair to be done at Studio 3. I love the salon---I always feel relaxed there and not rushed while sipping on a beverage of my choice while I wait. Darcy always makes me look like a star!
Pure Magic! – I first met Darcy ten years ago, when I was living inside the loop and she was working at another salon. I was fortunate enough to wander in off the street and right into her hands! I now live in Katy and drive in to West U once a month for my "day of beauty" at Studio 3. After 10 years, she still keeps coming up with new and inventive ways to keep me from looking like a suburban soccer mom.
Studio 3 is a warm and inviting place to visit. It is trendy enough to make you feel that you'll get a fresh, current look, but it is not in the least intimidating. Special touches--from the candles and hand towels in the powder room to the assortment of hot and cold beverages (love a mimosa on a Saturday morning!)--add to the experience.
Studio 3 is a gem!
wow wow wow – OH EM GEE
Cynthia ROCKS, I went in feeling frumpy and plain but she saw something lovely in my hair and brought it out.. what a beautiful thing for such a small cost.. it's a sweet little salon like a jewel box, awesome service without a whif of snobbery.. wow, I am hooked for life
Best stylist in the city – I started going here following a stylist who has since left. Before going, she referred me over to Kim, who has now been doing my hair for about 3 years. This is more than I have routinely paid for cuts and coloring in the past, but it is well worth it. Flawless haircuts that almost style themselves, beautiful color that looks so natural and that grows out so that it never shows. Every time I start to think that maybe I don't want to pay so much for a haircut, I remember all of the bad cuts that I have every had, and just bite the bullet and economize somewhere else.
tucked away jewel – Studio 3 is in the heart of West U - upper end neighbor chic. Megan is fun, personable, talented, creative and clearly loves what she is doing - that is who I have been going to but the rest of the stylist seem to have equally happy clients. The staff is attentive, the decor is relaxing yet hip, and the space is just right.
The only down side is that the salon is always very busy - hard, very hard, to get an appointment, so plan well ahead - and sometimes there isn't even a chair to sit on in the small waiting area - but then again someone will quickly offer you a glass of wine, soda, or other beverage.
With Loving Care – After seeing the other reviews here, I called for an appointment. Darcy doesn't accept new clients, but Lynn does - and she's fabulous! I brought her a picture and asked what she thought about it on me (she's the professional afterall!). She loved it, so we cut off 12 inches for donation. She matched the picture perfectly and agreed to my request for a change on the bangs to better suite me. She provided lots of desired consultation on care and styling of my horribly fine hair, from techniques to products. I was thrilled with the hair cut, and amazed by the care she took with every detail of the cut. She checked for evenness often. She didn't twist my head around or make me hold it at uncomfortable positions. She took a lot of time with my cut because it has a lot of really thin sections that have to be the same general length but purposely cut to be jagged. This is the type of cut that a cheap place with an untalented or inexperienced person could royally screw up. It could have easily been screwed up by someone who was rushing. But Lynn is fabulous! I have a million-dollar-movie-star-worthy cut! My husband even said the cut makes me look thinner! And that is saying something because he was oh so sad to see a foot of hair get cut off. I'd go back to Lynn in a heart beat! I went in the mid-afternoon, and there was plenty of parking too. Lynn was ready for me promptly at my appointment time as well. Oh, and coolest thing ever - I received an automated appointment reminder call a day or two before hand! If you are thinking about it, look at the rest of these reviews. I went solidly based on what they had to say, and I was not disappointed. I hadn't heard of this place before city search.
Great Energy, Perfect Location – Studio 3 lived up to the hype that we have been hearing about in our neighborhood. I made three appointments for my family. Two of my daughters need to have their hair done for a dance. They looked so beautiful when it was done. The stylist took a lot of time and really listened to them. The third appointment was for me. A blowdry - I also got a treatment - WOW - I enjoyed that a lot! I went back the following week for a hair cut. It is a really nice salon. Vibrant, Alive ,and full of great energy!
