Alex Burton Studios - Houston, Texas, United States

Jun 24, 2014 - Got another *great* haircut from Sean a couple of weeks ago. My hair is between 2C and 3A, probably closer to 3A. I have been going to Sean for 3 years now and have always been pleased with the results. He always styles my hair curly at the end, which I appreciate so I can see how it will look as I never straighten it. For me the key is "can I fix it as easily myself afterwards" and the answer has always been yes. Sean listens to what I ask for and always explains what he is doing ahead of time and as he is cutting. Always a great experience! The studio is made up of a group of stylist, makeup artists, etc who lease a private space and handle their own appointments. Sean is in Suite 156, at 713.528.4450. Parking is not a problem. Just be sure to allow time for traffic at certain times of the day, as it is the Galleria area.

Cut Loose - Houston, Texas, United States

Feb 28, 2012 - Last week, I got a *fantastic* haircut from Sean. I'm recovering from a bad haircut that left my hair very damaged, so I was a little nervous. I have very thick, fine hair that is between waves and curls, and I usually end up with cuts that give me either pyramid head or mushroom head. That did not happen this time! From the start, it was clear that Sean knew what he was talking about as he evaluated my hair. He gave me a great haircut that let my loose curls come through and that has been SO easy to fix myself at home. He used Bumble and Bumble products which seemed to work very well on my hair, but he did did not try to pressure me into buying them. I will definitely be going back to Sean for my next haircut! One drawback is parking; there is only street parking, which given the salon's location, can be a little difficult. I was lucky enough to find a spot right in front, at 6pm on a Thursday. I was so impressed with my haircut, that parking won't dissuade from going here, I'll just take it into account and get there a few minutes early in case I have to walk a couple of blocks.

Kharisma Hair Studio - Houston, Texas, United States

Nov 13, 2011 - I have 3a curly hair, which I usually let air dry or use a diffuser. I had my hair cut by Roi a couple of weeks ago. The haircut went okay, up until near the end when he ran scissors vertically through my hair to "release the curl". He put SO much product in my hair that I didn't notice the problem this caused until the next day when I fixed my own hair. Running the scissors through my hair left me with little hairs sticking out at all different lengths when I let it air dry. My hair looks frizzier than ever!!! It did not look like this before the cut. I am so disappointed because I had heard he knows how to cut curly hair. I do have to give him credit for fixing my hair curly. Still I am so disappointed by the abundance of frizz in my hair now.
