.

Nobody will ever touch my hair again! Mark is amazing! :) He has a great set up, with his own private room and a great television you can sit and watch a movie or music dvd on while you get your hair done - although I am a jabber jaw and talked his ears off :) LOL. I have long (almost waist length) strawberry blonde fine thick hair - no bangs to speak of, long layers with layers framing my face in the front and sides - nothing radical or extravagant. For some reason though - I have had nothing but horror stories for years with stylists and my hair no matter where I go - I think I have found two that I have just ""kinda"" liked - until now. Mark is DEFINITELY A KEEPER! I WOULD FOLLOW HIM ANYWHERE! I met him initially on Facebook through a friend of a friend and had been wanting to do the Keratin Smoothing treatment for awhile - so as Mother's Day approached I decided what the heck - if I was gonna let anyone touch my hair again I was gonna go with Mark and that is what I wanted for Mother's Day so told the hubbs and we made an appointment. I was a little nervous at first due to so many stylist messin it up - but he came HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. When I got there I was instantly comfortable! Mark is very knowledgeable when it comes to hair and products and KNOWS what he is doing. I will NEVER trust my hair to ANYONE else!!!! We had a great time talking while he did my hair - it was like one of my best girlfriends was sittin right there with me! Best time I have had in a LONG TIME! AND OMG MY HAIR LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS AND HIS PRICING WAS FABULOUS! I don't see how anyone can compete with him honestly and I have been to some high end stylists all over Houston and nobody can compare. He is one of a kind! I wish I could upload a picture of my hair for you to see. I don't typically spend money on myself and have a hard time doing so as a mother but it was worth EVERY DIME! I would go back and do it again tomorrow - and my hubby would let me :). He was thrilled with it as well. Mark - I cannot thank you enough! You are truly amazing. You made me feel like a princess and completely at ease. You have a customer for life my friend! <3 <3 <3 YOU ROCK! HOUSTON'S BEST!!!! Bringin my daughter in to see you next :) She has amazingly long and beautiful hair too LOL. She saw mine and wants hers done too now LOL NOT! Maybe someday when she is MUCH older but I HAVE to bring her in to see you so you can give her the royal treatment and make her feel like a princess like you did me! :) Thank you again my dear friend! Would recommend you to anyone! Keep rockin it! ;)

I will never trust anyone other than Mark to touch my hair again. Not only did he do a great job on my hair, but he made me feel comfortable. He is there if you have an emergency problem with your hair, and works around a schedule that fits FOR YOU. I not only have a hairdresser now, but a friend. He works quickly, and he has fun while working... making it a fun experience for all. I can guarantee a great experience for anyone of ALL ages!

Mark recently added hair extensions to my hair. WOW! What a difference they make. The hair looks fabulous. He's a professional and he's quick. I seriously can't say enough how great a job he did.\r
\r
Additionally, I booked Mark for a photoshoot. What an amazing job. The photoshoot was fun. The makeup artist did a great job. The photos were gorgeous.\r
\r
I highly recommend Mark for both the hair extensions and the photoshoot.\r

I went to Mark after two over hair dressers put extensions in my hair. I had the worse experience ever. My hair fell out; due to over processing with bleach. It was very heavy and frizzy. I called Mark Cortez he took me in on an emergency basely. He took out that ratty lookin horse hair and made me feel beauty. Mark is FABULOUS. When you leave you feel like a model or a movie star. Mark can change your life too.\r
Mark has a private room with a TV & DVD player where he does the extensions. \r
I watched a movie and we ordered take-out . He was done in no time at all. Mark did a wonderful job. I highly recommend Mark Cortez, he is a stand up guy and an extremely talented artist who loves what he does. Not only did I find my new permanent stylist, I made a friend forever. I love Mark and his work. I am in sales and I will refer him to everyone I know.\r

Mark Cortez's hair extensions have given me the confidence I have never had, I feel like a supermodel! I have had hair extensions before this and they felt heavy and rough. People told me they felt like horse hair! Great lengths extensions feel like my own hair, and people think they are my own hair. Ever since Mark fixed my my hair color, gave me extensions, and took my photos I have been getting constant work as a model, something I never even considered prior to the magic he created with my hair. He is not only skilled in application but he understands what looks best on a women and how to bring out a woman's true beauty

My hair has had extensions before so I knew what to expect. Not only was his work just so-so but he was rude and then overly solicitous trying to get a tip is my only guess. I could tolerate him IF his work was better, but it wasn't. Save your money and your time, and look for someone else. This guy is just not worth it.

Pros: I guess he could have been even a bigger jerk--maybe

Cons: Mediocre work but horrid attitude

Mark has been doing my hair for over 10 years, and the only time he didn't was when I moved to DC. I tried to find someone in DC to come close to him, and no luck! His highlights are amazing, cuts great, he isn't scared to take a risk, and he has me laughing my butt off in his chair. Plus I get to watch DVDs in his chair! His rates are a deal, and Thank Goodness I have moved back to Houston so Mark can continue to do my hair! He also does fantastic extensions.

I am a business owner and thought i was way too old for hair extentions. I have BAD hair, frizzy, curly, you get the idea... My daughter got extensions after being referred to Mark. They decided i needed them, and i felt stupid, as a 40+ getting extension. This is my third year and I cant even see myselft without them. I went from 1 hour in the AM of getting ready and then being disapointed with frizzy hair later in day, to 5 minutes in the morning and everyone saying how good my hair looks. Mark has literally changed my Looks and made hair easy. he is the BEST 5 stars to Mark he is truly the best.....

I struggled to find a new hairstyle after having a baby. My hair is fine and thin & I felt like it stopped growing with all the hormonal changes after pregnancy. I went for a consultation with Mark and he gave me guidance on length and color. My extensions arrived really fast and I had another appointment where he put the extensions in. Mark did an excellent job and he was really fast. My ""new"" hair was fabulous!!! I have gotten so many compliments in the 2 1/2 years that I wore the extensions. I recently took the hair out because my natural hair has grown out alot. I had no damage and my natural hair is very strong and healthy. I have no doubt that it is because Mark uses a great product (Great Lengths) & he is very experienced. I can't say enough good things about Mark. I will definitely get extensions again in the future and I wouldn't think of calling anyone but him.

Well, first I talk to this guy who is so rude, so ignorant, so totally arrogant that he turned me off. Then, because my regular person is gone from the country, I use him for some extensions and, let's just say, never again! His work is okay although not even close to what I am used to, so that alone is enough to never go back even if he was a decent person. But this guy is such a lying loser, is such lying know-it-all that he is a total bore to be around. Bad enough I had to sit there for such a long time as he takes to do the work. It was gruesome listening to him yammer about how wonderful he is (and on and on and on) when you just know this guy is a total loser. Oh! and if you want to hear someone who lies, lies, lies, well, this is the guy. Don't you dare believe anything from this fool including the words ""and"" and ""the."" Total complete loser who does mediocre work, but, he's a legend in his OWN mind (just ask him). In a word: \r

Best hair extensionist I've ever had! I have been getting extensions for 10 years now and I damaged my hair recently from highlights. Mark was so nice and personable. He matched my hair color perfectly, I have honestly never had anyone match my unique hair color this well, and fit me into his busy schedule as soon as he good. He really cares about his clients and their best interest. Not 5 minutes after I left his salon, I was getting compliments from random people on the street. He does a great job and out of the dozens of hair extensionists that have done my hair, he has done the best job! Mark goes above and beyond with all of his clients! I would highly reccomend him to all my friends!

MARK'S THE BEST\r
I CAME TO MARK WITH AN APPARENT HAIR EMERGENCY. I WENT TO A PLACE A COUPLE OF MONTHS BACK THAT FRIED MY HAIR..A PLACE THAT WAS BY MY GYM AT DAIRY ASHFORD AND WESTHEIMER. I CAME OUT WITH TREMENDOUS BREAKAGE AND A BAD COLOR. I HAVE ALWAYS WORN MY HAIR LONG AND WAS THINKING MAYBE EXTENSIONS. I WAS'NT ABLE TO AFFORD THE COST OF THE PROCEDURE. MARK LOOKED AT MY HOPELESS HAIR AND SAID I DID'NT NECESSARILY NEED EXTENSIONS. HE GAVE ME AWONDERFUL LONG LAYERED CUT. HE KEPT MY LENGTH AND WAS ABLE TO CUT A HUGE AMOUNT OF THE DAMAGE OFF . HE ALSO PUT IN HIGHLIGHTS TO FIX MY COLOR. THIS MADE MY HAIR LOOK MUCH FULLER. I LOVE MY HAIR. I CANT REMEMBER THE LAST TIME IT LOOKED THIS GOOD. I HAVE READ SOME OF HIS REVIEWS AND I DONT BELIEVE HE HAS AN ATTITUDE. HE IS AN ARTIST AND WHEN YOU ARE THE BEST IT IS EXPERTISE NOT ATTITUDE. HE WAS ALSO ABLE TO FIT ME IN TO HIS VERY BUSY SCHEDULE. I AM A RESERVE FLIGHT ATENDANT AND ONLY HAVE 11 DAYS OFF A MONTH AND ON MY OFF DAYS I TAKE CARE OF A CHILD WITH A HEART CONDITION. I TOLD HIM MY DAYS OFF AND HE FIT ME IN. HE IS THE BEST. I RECOMMEND HIM TO EVERYONE.

I came to Mark Cortez because I could not take it any longer: I have always had very fine hair that refused to grow past a certain length. Moreover, my hair was damaged and frayed from years of bleaching. It was a mess. After researching hair extension options, it was clear to me that the Great Lengths system would be by far the best choice. Great Lengths hair is of the highest quality and the application causes very little damage to my natural hair. It looks incredibly natural.\r
\r
I feel very lucky to have found Mark because he is an expert. To him, styling beautiful hair is an art form. What?s more, he works fast and efficiently. I have gorgeous hair that is also professional enough to fit into the corporate world. No one would ever know that I had hair extensions- they just think that I have beautiful, healthy hair.\r
\r
Mark always treats me with the utmost professionalism, but I feel so comfortable with him that we?ve become friends. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who longs to have sensational hair.

I went on 2 other consultations before calling Mark. I always do lots of comparing and research. I was initally impressed with his website, but was thoroughly turned-off by his attitude. Very arrogant and talked HORRIBLY about other stylists. He fabricated so many lies about one stylists that I felt I had to tell her myself because I knew (since I had met her) that there was no way the things he was saying were true.\r
Apparently, I wasn't the first to hear an earful of junk from him in efforts to steal clients from other people who are fairly competitive. From what I was told, this ""other"" stylist caught wind of his lies and recorded him talking badly about her on the phone. If he hadn't stooped so low trying to win my business, I may have gone with him- but I felt that it showed alot aboout his character and he just didn't strike me as an honest guy after that.\r
\r
Nice to see that other clients were happy, not that I would need his help ordering a bikini (felt like he was staring at my chest the whole time to begin with) but his business ethics stinks.\r
\r
I think I'll stick to short hair for now, I'm just not that into drama, rumors, lies, and conspiracies to mislead customers that are paying big bucks.

My name is Kise? Zettel , I am a 41 year professional in the energy industry. My hair is thick and I wear the length is a little past my shoulders. I never thought that I would need or want hair extensions. My birthday and the holidays were coming up and I wanted to have my hair a little bit longer. So I went to see Mark to pick out my hair colors and the next week he put the extension in my hair. I could not believe how real the hair felt and how beautiful the hair looked. The next day my co workers were surprised at how beautiful my extensions looked and real they felt. My hair dresser was so surprised that she wants to refer her clients to Mark for hair extensions. I thought that this would be a one time thing?.. I don?t think I will ever go without having hair extensions by Mark.\r

Pros: Private room and comfort made the experience top notch

Mark does fantastic work. It was amazing. I was just another chick at a club and after my extensions, I telling you the truth, I was turning heads, getting asked out ALL the time, and even getting out of speeding tickets. His extensions look sooo real and natural. He matches the color perfectly and listens to exactly what you want, then does it. He is fast and ALWAYS on time. I never have to wait. I come right in and sit down and am attended to. You can watch TV in his private office/salon area. In fact, he helped me pick out a bikini on-line and I ordered it on his computer (that is in front of your chair) while he was doing my hair. He is just a really great hair stylist and business man. Moreover, if I've got a really important date/meeting, he'll make time for me during off hours to accommodate getting me hair done. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

After I made the decision to get extensions, I really did my homework before I chose the salon. One of my good friends has Great Lengths and her hair is amazing! I really thought about going to her girl who was in LA. After I found Mark and met with him to discuss everything, I knew I had found the place. I was a little nervous going in and Mark answered my million questions and I left feeling that I had made a good choice. I travel a ton and only had a 3 day window to get it done. Mark ordered the hair and scheduled my appointment when I needed it. He has this nice private room with a TV and DVD player where he does the extensions and color. The time flew by! We watched a movie and he even ordered take-out for lunch. We were done with everything in less then 4 hours including color, wash, extensions, a cut and style. Mark did an amazing job, I love my new hair. I spend a lot of time in front of TV cameras and everyone loved my hair as well. I highly recommend Mark Cortez, he is a stand up guy and an extremely talented artist who loves what he does. Not only did I find my new permanent stylist, I made a friend.

I was a little nervous going in and Mark answered my million questions and I left feeling that I had made a good choice. I travel a ton and only had a 3 day window to get it done. Mark ordered the hair and scheduled my appointment when I needed it. He has this nice private room with a TV and DVD player where he does the extensions and color. The time flew by! We watched a movie and he even ordered take-out for lunch. We were done with everything in less then 4 hours including color, wash, extensions, a cut and style. Mark did an amazing job, I love my new hair. I spend a lot of time in front of TV cameras and everyone loved my hair as well. I highly recommend Mark Cortez, he is a stand up guy and an extremely talented artist who loves what he does. Not only did I find my new permanent stylist, I made a friend.

Mark Cortez does the best hair extentions in town and you can trust me because I've tried them all. The first time I got extentions I was even referred by a friend and I still wasn't safe. It cost me twice as much as Mark charged me, took exactly four times as long and hurt very badly (I actually had to make her stop half-way through my blow-dry). The money that I did spend on extentions from Mark was more than worth it. Now that I've had them done, I'd pay more if he asked me to. They are beautiful, no one ever thinks that they're fake and they tell you how to take care of them, which the other salon didn't. He'll even let you drop-by if you have any questions. If you knew me, then you'd know how hard I am to satisfy and Mark exceeded my expectations. Two enthusiastic thumbs-up and highly reccomended.

Pros: Mark has an actual office in the salon, so you don't have to sit in a chair in front of everyone while you get your hair done.,

As a NYer, one would think I would be able to find a good hair extensions specialist in Manhattan. WRONG! I don't want a good job, rather a GREAT one. I have been utilizing Mark's services at Gagliano's because he truly is a leader in the competitive world of hair extensions. Mark is dedicated to his clients overall well being and happiness. He replaces good with great. I have severly damaged hair due to overprocessing and corrective color. Since Mark has been caring for my hair I have noticed a drastic change in the texture and appearance. Once you discover how truly dedicated Mark is you won't need to be jumping from salon to salon anymore. He views his career as a career and doesn't view it as just a job. Why go anywhere else? Trust him, I did....
