I have been to several high-end salons in Houston (Bella Rinova, Salon Ceron, Urban Retreat) but needed a fresh eye. After reading lots of reviews, I went to Kharisma for a consultation with Linda (color) and Mark Savana (haircut). Both were wonderful. I just went to the salon for the third time, for a cut only. I decided to go super short, which I have done off and on over the last 30 years. This was the first time Mark had cut my hair super short, and I was very impressed with the process he used. Instead of talking about what kind of haircut and shape I wanted, then having him cut to a preconceived shape, he listened to what I wanted then cut little bits at a time, following my head shape and the way my hair grew. I've never seen someone work as he did, and the result is a fabulous haircut that satisfies what I said I wanted AND truly suits my head & hair.

I just saw Loris for the first time on a recent trip to Houston from NYC. I was referred to her by a close girlfriend to use for my wedding.

I was looking for a glamorous, 1930's look. WOW. She immediately understood my dream an made my vision even better as she adjusted for my personality. I plan on flying her up to New York for the wedding.

I would highly recommend Loris to anyone looking for an amazing stylist. Apparently, Loris learned her trade in Milan and Paris and her accent is mesmerizing and fun.

Cheers, Here Comes the Bride

From the moment I called to make my appointment, I had a sense I was in for a unique experience. The employee taking my appointment was so nice and professional. She confirmed the day and time twice and then let me know she'd be giving me a reminder call. How did she know?

The day before my first cut, I received the reminder call and was asked to be at the salon 10 minutes early. FINALLY, a salon that doesn't treat me the way most doctors offices do.

I arrived and wow....what a beautiful place. I experienced the buzz and soon realized I was at "THE PLACE" in Houston. Offered a tea to drink, I immediately changed and received my consultation. Although the stylist checked in with my ambitions, she was quick to advise me that I didn't have the face for the type of cut I was wanting. She suggested an innovative approach and OMG - Amazing. I get compliments on my hair almost daily.

The entire process took half an hour. I'm busy so that works for me. I was impressed with how continually clean the salon is, especially when considering how busy they were. The entire salon (staff & customers) had "good energy". The place just felt good.
Both my son and my daughter get their hair cut (her colored) at Kharisma. We've been returning for a few years now.

Pros: Beautiful, Hip, Clean, Creative, & Always on Time

Cons: Difficult to get an appointment on a moments notice

My regular hairdresser was out for several months so they told me Laura was taking all of her clients. I went to Laura for color and she had the worst attitude of any hairdresser I have ever been to. After she applied the color on my hair, she was finished talking to me and doing anything for me. When the color had been shampooed out of my hair, no one would towel dry my hair or comb it out. I had to get someones attention to get another towel to at least get enough water out so it was not dripping on my clothes when I left. They should have a sign that says "If you are not getting your hair blown dry, be sure and bring your own towels and combs." I guess $90 just does't buy you as much as it used to. At least not at Kharisma. Thay will be my last trip there.

Pros: None

Cons: Rude hairdresser with diva attitude, Overpriced.

The first time I went to have my hair lightened from dark blonde to blonde, I was very clear the entire time that I wanted to be made blonde. But Melissa put zebra-stripe highlights in my hair to make me still a dark blonde but with chunky light blonde highlights - looked RIDICULOUS! I had to walk around like that for a few days before she'd see me again and she finally fixed it. Fast-forward several months, and now Melissa is gone. A woman named Laura was supposed to replace her for my already-scheduled session but at Melissa's price. Laura copped attitude that I had paid Melissa's price instead of hers (should I have even tipped?) and did a horrible job lightening my roots; there went $100 down the toilet since you can still see the roots. My own mother does a better job with the kits you buy at the store for $10. Two out of four visits left me looking worse than when I went in. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!

Pros: professional and most courteous salon in over 25 year

.

This is by far the best salon in Houston. If you don't mind paying a little more to get the best... then this is the place to go. Eric is awesome with color and Loris is a french trained hair stylist....her cuts are so precise, your haircut will fall in to place after getting out of the shower. Seriously...the best haircut I've ever had and she's always consistent.

Pros: Best Color Eric /Best Cut Loris

Cons: None

I'm someone who is always paranoid about the health of my hair, and when I went to Laura for color she made me feel at ease, because she is the type of person that you feel like you've known forever. She did such a wonderful job on my highlights, and she always has new subtle suggestions on how to change the same color to match the season or occasion. I've never been happier with my color! Recently, she did the updos and formal styles for my wedding, and everyone looked like someone out of a magazine!! She makes it look too easy. Oh yeah, and she does fabulous cuts, too.....

Pros: Best color and style in town

Cons: Limited parking

I have now been a patron for Kharisma for several months. As a man I had never truly considered frequenting a high-end salon, but I wanted some style to the hair that I had grown out for over a year. I researched the net for possible styles and showed them to Loris. She asked me several questions on why I had chosen the styles I was showing her and as she inspected how my hair grew; she offered suggestions before whipping out the shears and straight blade. My siblings say that when I leave the salon that my cut and style seems like many a celebrity seen on tv and print media. Loris is sweet and extremely skilled. The entire staff are friendly and there are no airs of conceit at Kharisma. From the way my hair looks even a fews weeks after the cut to the wonderful staff, I certainly give the highest rating and would tell any male who wants a stylish to cut to leave the barber shop and visit Kharisma.

Pros: Loris's skill and the friendly staff

Cons: A little hidden in its physical location

I found out about Kharisma from City Search. I was absolutely desperate as my hair is impossible. I had not found anyone to consistently style my hair with any success. Loris is a master! I drive a long distance but she's totally worth it. I have gone from frump to feeling like I could be on the cover of a magazine. Melissa does a wonderful job on colour for me. I get so many complements on the color alone. The added bonus is that everyone is so friendly - it's not stuffy like some of the comparable elite salons. The customer service is the best of any salon I've been in - but it's the fabulous hair that you must experience~

I followed Courtney to Kharisma from another salon in town. She gives a great haircut -- listens to what you want, makes suggestions taking into consideration the kind of hair you have, the shape of your face and your lifestyle. Also, Courtney is GREAT at color and highlights....it looks really natural. The salon itself is very clean, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend it.

I've been to every high end salon in Houston and found Houston's best kept secret in the Galleria area. I was refered to Laura by a friend of mine, whose hair color always looks great. Laura took the time to listen to exactly what I wanted, and also made suggestions of her own as far as what colors are in for Spring/ Summer and what would best complement my skin tone. I found out that Laura is an artist for L'Oreal Professional and travels all over the nation to train classes. I had a great experience and have refered her to all my friends.

So as it turns out, I went to Visible Changes in Galleria Mall on a whim.
Just walked by; and decided to try them out.
About 200+ dollars later; the worst hair cut in the world, a puddle of tears, and an angry client.

On my way home I pass by Kharisma Hair Studio.
I've heard of the Studio by heresay.
I walk-in.
Immediate customer service.
Everyone was extraordinary and professional.
My hairstylist Lyndsey Whittington even made me green tea while I talked her ear off!
I sat there for MAYBE thirty minutes just telling her what was wrong with it.
And thirty minutes later-my social life was back.

And I can look in the mirror and not cry.
It is an absolutely amazing salon.
I recommend this place to anyone that has cried in a salon before.

Never again.

Kharisma is my favorite salon in Houston. The entire staff is well trained. You will never leave this salon with bad haircut. It's a little expensive, but it is worth every penny. Some of their clients travel hours away for their great service.

I just moved to Houston from NYC and I waited as long as I possibly could to get my hair done. A co-worker recommended me to Courtney at Kharisma in the Galleria area. I finally tried her this week. She spent time LISTENING to my concerns in her consultation like so many stylists don't take the time to do. She was very patient and understanding of the anxiety involved with trying a new stylist. I didn't want anything different on my first visit so she did her best to match the highlights and cut created by my stylist in NYC. She did just what I wanted and it looks better than before! Thanks, Courtney, you have a new client!

Cons: I had to wait 3 weeks for a mid-day appointment. It would have been 6 weeks for an evening.

In the past I've had a lot of trouble "connecting" with different stylists on the type of style that was best for me - not just what they thought looked good on me. This is the first salon I've been to in many years that listened to what I wanted, but gave me an individualized, classy style. I have used many of the stylists at this salon for my hair color and haircut, and all of them are great! I've definitely become a regular client, and I''ve never been happier with my classy, yet modern hair style.

My wife and I live in Houston! In the past she had her hair cut, styled and colored at Jose Eber' by Ceron but was not that happy. She felt like she was getting the same old thing but for a very high price!!! She had lunch with a group of friends at Tony's and everyone was raving over one of her girlfriends hair and everyone asked? Where do you get your hair done? It's looks fabolous!! She said Kharisma Hair Studio by Loris Fusi, and she cuts my husbands hair too!

Well my wife went to Loris Fusi @ Kharisma the next week and has never been back to Ceron! In fact, I am now a customer myself! I have never received so many compliments myself by other business colleagues and constantly refer her business!

My wife always looks like a model out of Vogue when Loris does her hair! Thank you Loris!! and Thank you
Kharisma Hair Studio, you are excellent in everyway!! 100%

Loris and Eric are the best haircare team in town. Their new salon is absolutely gorgeous; even won an ASID design award. The service is impeccable. This is one of Houston's best kept secrets! Loris is an unbelievable stylist and Eric is the best colorist I have ever been to -- and that includes many of NYC's best salons. I give Kharisma the highest recommendation possible.
