Hi Jackie I am Wyatt and would like to apologize for the hair cut. I hope you don't take my wrong doing out on the other stylist in the salon. I truly wished you would have called me to let me know your feelings about your cut. I will

NEVER AGAIN. I brought in 3 pictures, asking for the "long bob" like Jennifer Aniston. Wanted shoulder length in the back, a bit longer in the front. The 3 pictures clearly showed this. Stylist Wyatt instead cut my hair 1/2 inch short

I was casually looking for a new salon when I came across a Houston Tidbit coupon. On impulse, I made an appointment without reading any reviews or doing any research. A gamble - but I won! \r

First of all, I was referred to this salon by a friend who has gone there for a while. I was referred to one stylest, but ended up getting Sharon DeWitt because the other girl wasn't available. I am SO thankful it worked out that way! I

What a fabulous salon! Quaint and cute.
Front desk is nice and professional.
The owner Cheryl is the sweetest!
I have been going to Shine now for the past year since I moved down the street.
I have always had a great experience with my haircuts.
I recently went in and got a Brazilian Blow out!
OH MY GOSH!
AMMMM-AZING!
Ivania did the Brazilian Blow out on me and what can I say but am so GLAD that I did it and that she suggested to me.

My hair is thick, the Blowout has made my hair so much more manageable, less blow dry time, less using of my straight iron.
It used to take me about 30 minutes to blow dry, style and it has cut the time in half.
And with this Houston humidity, it is answer for all women who want NO FRIZZ! Leaves your hair silky and shiny. I have received so many complements and people touching my hair in disbelief.
I suggest you do it and call and ask for Ivania.
This salon has some TALENT!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Shine In The Heights. It is the kind of fun and fashionable place I love going to every 7 weeks. Cherryl has been my stylist for 8 years. I've always leave feeling like a million bucks. She's on top of all the current techniques for coloring and caring for hair. She really listens to all my requests and concerns. She's the real deal. A total pro.
Everyone who works at this fun and trendy house tucked in the Heights is committed to making your experience a wonderful one. Love it!

As with many women, I have had my battles with finding the perfect salon. There are many options to consider: first and foremost - talent, second - location, location, location, third - do I feel comfortable here, Shine in the Heights has one of the most inviting and warm atmosphere's around. You can walk in and just feel at home here (This may be due to the fact that it is a renovated house or because the owner has her cute little dog running around) and fourth - this place offers the perks of a 5th Avenue Salon, but offers a great deal for the quality of their services.

I kept hearing things about this "quaint little salon" in the Heights that I just had to check out. I finally booked an appointment with someone named Sharon. I walked in, dug the vibe and got whisked into a charming little back room to talk about my hair. I'm blond, but I'm picky - why? I hate getting my hair done and then feeling like it needs to be colored two weeks later. I expressed this concern to Sharon and she said that she had a solution for that ... at this point I was thinking, "ok, I have been getting my hair colored blond for over 20 years now and no one has had a solution" In the end, SHE WAS RIGHT - she did what I refer to as hair magic... I went in six weeks later to get my hair done again, but I still felt like it was as good as new. My roots were blended perfectly and tone was still fresh and vibrant. I went in the second time and this time we added a trim. She trimmed my hair to my exact request. (I hate it when I walk into a salon and ask for trim and walk out with my hair six inches shorter). Bottom line, Sharon is a brilliant colorist who can really feel what a person is wanting and she knows how to listen to her clients. What more can you ask for?

I have tried many salons in Houston over the seven years that I have lived here and have finally found a keeper in Shine.
Cherryl is amazing! First, she highlighted my hair with warm blonde color and then used a base breaker to make the look more natural. My husband loved it! He even said that it finally looks like I may actually be a natural blonde rather than an obvious bleacher. It was the fastest color that I have ever had and the least expensive. Cherryl even mentioned that we may not have to do the highlights every time which was so refreshing after being accustomed to being sold on extra services and products at every other salon.
As for the cut, I could not be happier. I brought in a picture which she was able to very closely replicate while adjusting to my face size and shape and to my previous horrible haircut. I was happy yesterday but the real test came this morning when I had to style on my own and was actually able to get the same look as she did in store!
I could not be happier and have already booked out my next two appointments. Very, very good value!

I have dark brown hair and color it a warm light brown. I came in for a fresh highlights and a root touch up. Sharon was the stylist who worked on my hair; she said she would give me a warm color and color my roots to match. When she was finished I requested that she just dry a section of my hair, so I could see the hair color. (It was a Tuesday, and I was just going home). This might have been a mistake because it took me longer to notice the bad dye job.

When I went home I dried it, and like Yum Yum (another reviewer) I noticed that my hair had big roots. In other words it looks just like it had when I went in, except I was 100 dollars poorer. I, like Yum Yum, asked my friends and co-workers who all agreed that it looked like I hadn't done my hair, and that I had dark roots. They also commented that the bottom was to dark.

I expressed my feelings to Sharon. She said that the bottom was already dark and that she couldn't do anything about that. I kind of agreed with her because she did not dye that; however, I think it was her skill as a colorist that made the color difference so obvious. (I wasn't rude, so I didn't tell her that.) She agreed that there was a large gap between the roots and the highlighted part but she said that it was the processors fault. (Whatever.) She said that sometimes it takes her awhile to know what processor works best on clients. (Shouldn't she know that already?) When she was done my hair looked slightly better, but it really wasn't that great, and you could still she some roots. I cut my losses, and didn't bother calling again.

This was about 8 weeks ago. I just posted this because I just dyed my own hair with Nice and Easy and it looks better than what Sharon did. Also, I saw this place had such high marks! That must have been their friends. Honestly, I'm just tring to warn people. It was cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Pros: The owners Yorkie (dog).

Cons: bad colorist/stylist, bad parking.

This was my first time coming here. I was referred to Cherryl or MaryAnn, but they were booked on the day I wanted to come in and the only stylist open was Sharon. I had read the reviews beforehand and recalled Sharon's rave reviews, so I was ok with that.

I told Sharon what I wanted to do for my color and she did a good job with that. She suggested some face framing highlights, which I have had done many times in the past, so I went with her suggestion. That was a mistake. Many of the foils did turn out beautifully, but the ones that mattered were the ones that actually framed my face along my hairline. Above my forehead, there was about a one inch gap from where my hairline was and where the highlight started and the highlights were too chunky. I didn't really notice it until I got home, so I called and let her know that I wasn't happy and scheduled another time to come in and fix them.

When I went back, I specifically pointed out the two main issues: the highlights were way too far away from my root, which made it look like 2 months grow out, and that the two streaks above my forehead were a little too chunky for me. Not sure how this happened, but I walked out of there without either issue being fixed. It was bizarre, considering I watched her put the foils in and say she was going to get as close to the root as possible.

At this point I was pretty mad. Friends and coworkers agreed that it looked like an amateur had done the highlights and they all told me to not let them touch my hair again and just ask for my money back. I decided to contact Cherryl and see what she suggested. She had me come in so she could look at them to see if they were fixable. It was pretty awkward for me to have to go back twice, as I have never done that before, but she was very professional about it. She agreed that the highlights were too chunky and way too far back, so she broke up the streaks with some lowlights and brought the highlighted part down to the root. A simple fix, which I why I'm still pretty confused as to what happened with Sharon.

Cherryl gave me a shampoo and conditioner for having to come back for corrections twice, which was nice of her.

With all of the great salons in Houston though, I doubt I'll return to Shine in the Heights. Third time was the charm for getting my hair to look right, but unfortunately I think in this case it's also three strikes and you're out. : /

Pros: Quirky, laid back atomosphere, Owner is great

Cons: A little hard to find

I've been to this salon, which is in a little house on 11th street several times now, for my color, and I have never been disappointed. I've sent 2 of my friends, and both of them loved the stylist i recommended, Sharon. She always does a great job, and the place is just so laidback and cute, you can't help but love it!

I went to Shine in the Heights and had Sharon style my hair. I told her I wanted something a little bit more funky so she gave me highlights, lowlights, and a gloss. It looked amazing without being too unique. I will definately be going back in the future to have my hair upkeep. The price was amazing and the people were very nice! Great salon, Great stylist!

I recently tried Shine for my first time after a previous bad experience at another salon. My expectation were not only met with the great color job I received, but were blown away when I saw how cool the salon was! I will definately be back to see Sharon, who did a fantastic job which was better than I'd hoped for. And the value! No more crazy salon bills!!

After moving here 3 years ago, the task of finding a new hair salon was daunting, but I luckily went with the supercute ad I saw in Heights Pages and tried out Shine in the Heights.
I've been going to Meryann for haircuts for over two years now, and I have never been disappointed. She's cool and will listen to you and discuss what you want to accomplish. Lisa does my color, and she has done excellent work the past six months I've been going to her. She listens to me and suggests things that I wouldn't know of, and I am definitely so happy with my color!
The salon itself is low-key and funky --definitely not pretentious, as so many other salons in Houston have proven to be. The price is extremely reasonable, and I have never flinched when told how much I owe. Especially for those living in the Heights, I highly recommend this awesomely comfortable salon!

Pros: Low-key atmosphere

I have been going to Cherryl and Meryann for several years now and I have NEVER had a bad experience. They are always extremely professional and are top knotch colorists and stylists. From the moment you walk into SHINE, you feel at home. It is a very ecclectic salon without the uber foo foo BS that goes along with a $300 color and cut salon. The mood is relaxing, the girl talk is therapeutic and the results are simply stunning.

I found Cheryl through a referral and have been going to her for years now and would never think to go anywhere else! I've referred subsequent people over to her and have had zero complaints...I always get both cut and color and am never disappointed. Would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend checking them out-there are several stylists if Cheryl is not available and everyone is very friendly. There is a cute boutique attached as well :)

I went there for the first time and it is such a cute place! Perfect if you live in the Heights or close by as it is located right on 11th street. They offer all types of servics and are super friendly! Shelia (the owner) is wonderful! I just had my hair cut/styled, but will be going back for highlights soon. I loved my cut and had a great experience overall. Highly recommend!

It was my first time to ever go to the shine in the heights and i have to say it was the best costumer service and best hair stylist ive ever had. Meryann welcomed me to the shine in the heights very well and cut and colored my hair fantasticly! Im very hard to please when it comes to my hair and i have to say i was so thrilled with the outcome of my hair, to tell you the truth it was better than i imagined.

I loved Shine and I am hard to please. Maryann was very efficient and gave me exactly what I was looking for in terms of color. I haven't gotten my hair cut there yet, but will defnitely be back. She also styled my hair very well and gave good advice on how to wear my bangs. I will also be trying her out for my wedding in August.

after reading other reviews here I had my haircut by maryann. unfortunately she did a very sloppy job - my bangs were extremely uneven (much longer on the left side) and simple requests such as leaving my layers long were ignored and several inches came off. even if she had done what i requested, its an uneven and very disappointing cut.
all in all, I would not recommend this salon to anyone.

Shine was recommended to me by a friend after an uptown park salon completely ruined my haircut. MaryAnne helped to re-do my hair and gave me an inspiring and fun new cut and color. The staff is always very friendly and the salon is relaxing and upbeat. I've been going back for several months now and have been extremely pleased! People often stop me on the street and in restaurants just to tell me about the exceptional color of my hair, which is made unique by MaryAnne's artistic stylist abilities. I would highly recommend the salon to anyone!

After having my hair cut and colored by Cherryl at Shine in The Heights, I would NEVER let anyone other than Cherryl or Maryanne touch my hair! I have found my 2nd home at Shine. Not only did she give me the absolute BEST color & cut for my hair & face shape, I was actually stopped and complimented by both women and men (on several occasions) after having my hair done at Shine. The atmosphere is so laid-back, hospitable, and relaxing. They've successfully combined upscale quality with a charming environment. They work very hard at making everyone feel comfortable and important-- like you've been one of their best clients for years and years. The creation of this inviting and friendly atmosphere seems to come so naturally for them. And as an added bonus... There is even cute & unique jewelry and purses you can buy there as well!!! Luckily, I live pretty close to Shine. But, even if I had to drive an hour, I would gladly do so to see the ladies at Shine.

I was searching for a new hair salon because I was not happy with the one I was going to. So I would always pass by this salon. So I made a appointment for cut, color & style and I was very nervous and almost canceled the appt. I ended up going and I am so happy that I went. When I arrived they offered me Wine it was very nice it took the edge off and relaxed me. MaryAnn was so cool she understood what I wanted and exchange she offered me advice. When it was time to discuss color I had a certain color in my head but it was hard to translate so we looked through magazines and we found a similar color and worked off that. She created this awesome color and I was very happy! After everything she styled my hair and it looked very chic. Love Love Love Shine:)

From the moment you walk down the quant path to the door, you are in a relaxed mood. The girls, Cherryl and MeryAnn make you feel like you are home, with their southern hospitality and very cool surroundings. Then the service you get, I love my new color and cut, they listen...not just cut....but offer up plenty ideas. I haven't tried the massage yet, but did meet the masseuse which was very nice. GO see the girls, they will make YOU shine!!
