I lived in San Francisco and would always go to Dry Bar there and once moved to Houston the next thing to it was Blow Dry Bar. The concept is the same, except at Blow Dry Bar they charge you extra based on your hair. I have thick, long hair that requires to use a blow dryer and straightener and I made sure to let the person servicing my hair know that - she only used a blow dryer to straighten my hair and I was shocked when she told me she was "done" after blow drying. I said I would like a straightener ran through it as well and she told me my appointment time was up. I walked out spending more than Dry Bar with horrible hair that frizzed out as soon as I stepped outside. I will NEVER come here again. I'm so happy to learn that Dry Bar is finally coming to Houston and I recommend everyone go there instead when it opens.
Made an appointment over the phone and showed up for my appointment the next day at the River Oaks location. Was told that my appt was at the Voss location, and they couldn't help me. First, I didn't know there was more than one location and Second, the person I talked to on the phone was more interested in getting my cc number and didn't bother to confirm location. Instead of raking an opportunity to earn my business in the future, they said that they would "talk to the manager" about not charging my cc. As I was driving away, the Voss location called to ask where I was, and basically told me tough tits, and would charge my card. Bunch of snotty kids with no training whatsoever.
My stylist dripped sweat on my shoulder... It was disgusting! The chic beside me's stylist was really rude when talking about other customers. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.
To any hairstylists looking for work; DO NOT go here for a job.
I will never support ANY "business" that takes advantage of their employees.
Haystack Hair – the place is cute and clean. however, I agree with another reviewer that the "stylists" seem to lack confidence and experience. They use NO styling products-at least none were offered in blowing out my curly hair! their advertising should say no cut, no color, no products or BYOP. No products in Houston=haystack hair or flat-head. if you are going to specialize in blowouts-do it up right! have a couple of great styling products in your aresenal! The stylist at my regular salon charges $45 for a blowout that lasts me at LEAST 3 good days, if not longer. the extra $10 I would "save" for a so so blowout at blow dry bar, wasn't worth it. The extra $10 bucks I would pay at my salon for great hair for 3+ days is worth it. I probably will not be back to blow dry bar unless I read some reviews that say they are using basic styling products/have improved somewhat.
Not so much – Wanted to try it out before I had an urgent need.
Not really impressed... my stylist really didn't do as good a job as I do myself. The stylist seemed to lack confidence, had no suggestions. My hair was not completely dry - which I didn't notice until after I was in the car and driving away - so I lost what little volume there had appeared to be when I left, and it started frizzing up within an hour. I'm a real product junkie, and I was looking forward to suggestions regarding product for great blowouts, but she made no suggestions whatsoever.
IF you're in a hurry and IF for some reason you can't do it yourself and IF you know exactly what you want and IF you double-check to make sure your hair is DRY... it might work for you. I thought it was an almost-waste of $40.00. But, I learned not to count on them for something special, so it was almost-worth the cost.
