Until I turned 40, I was blessed with low-maintenance, straight hair. Since 40, I have struggled with gray, dull and frizzy hair. Finding limited success through coloring my own hair and finding a suitable hairdresser, I finally found D'Anna, who is not only a master colorist and stylist, but more of a partner in my long-term hair maintenance. I strongly recommend D'Anna if you are seeking a partner in managing your hair challenges. She is brilliant!

I WAS IN VISITING FROM NEW YORK AND D'ANNA FROM HOT TOPS DID THE KERATIN STRAIGHTNER ON ME AND I CAN NOT EXPRESS HOW BEAUTIFUL MY HAIR LOOKS. ITS BEEN A LIFE LONG UNMANAGABLE PROBLEM FOR ME-IT WOULD TAKE HOURS TO GET MY HAIR JUST RIGHT ONLY TO GO OUT IN THE HUMIDITY OR RAIN FOR IT TO LOOK LIKE A DISASTER-\r
\r
MY HAIR IS HEALTHY SHINY IT HAS BODY NO FRIZZ AND I'VE HAD SO MANY COMPLIMANTS THAT I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD AND THE DRYING TIME WAS CUT IN HALF \r
\r
LOVE IT - CANT LIVE WITHOUT IT\r

I just left Hot Tops in Montrose where Jeffrey did the MOST fabulous job with my hair! Thank you sooo much Jeff! You have cured me of hair salon phobia. Jeff really knows how to listen and how to deliver. If you aren't sure what you want...or know exactly what it is you are looking for...Jeffrey can, and will, deliver.

I had just moved back to Houston from NYC -- in need of a hairdresser -- when I saw that Jeff was voted "best hairdresser in Houston" by Houston Press, so I gave him a try.

He's a super-nice guy, and I hate that I have write this review -- but I want you to share my experience, since it was just unreal.

I have long, super-thick, naturally wavy hair. I wanted a refresh of my very well grouwn-out "flip" cut I gotten from my gal Brooke in NYC.

My last haircut had movement -- and length. I got compliments about the back -- how it moved -- all the time with Brooke's cuts.

Jeff stopped that! He sheared the long hair at the crown (where it would swing) to only 2 inches! (It actually "stuck up in the air" on it's own (no help from me) for about a month after the cut-- like Dennis the Menace)

He cut my hair with razors at times (instead of scissors)-- I think this damaged my hair. No one has ever used razors on my hair before.

I had to take my eyeglasses off for the haircut -- I am blind w/o them -- when I put them back on at the end -- 1.5 HOURS LATER -- I was horrified.

I when in with very wavy hair and when I left, my hair was perfectly FLAT. All life had been removed. My hair looked THIN. It just laid theire.

He pressed it with this hot iron --- when I asked him why, he said, "to get the most accurate cut."

No hairdresses has ever had to BURN my hair to get a good cut.

When he was done I wento the bathrooom and immediately punged my head into the sink and rewetted it, trying to "juje" it back to life. No luck!

I didn't cry till I got home, thankfully. My husband got so tired of hearing me whine about that haircut!

I got no color, folks, and yet as I said, my hair felt like straw for 3 weeks afterwards.I am not exaggerating! Even my girlfreinds couldn't believe how burned my hair felt afterwards. It took about a month before it started to feel like my hair again.

The bad cut aside -- why did he have to burn my hair????

DO NOT GO TO JEFF FOR A HAIRCUT. You will regret it, unless you want a circa-1980 short, punky, spiky look and don't mind having hair that feels like straw afterwards.

This place was recommended to me months ago. My only regret is that I didn't try it sooner. The atmosphere is great and I felt welcome the moment I walked into the shop.

I knew I was in good hands.

Daniel was my hair stylists and he was terrific! He was very in tune with what I wanted and what would look best on me. I am so freakin happy with my results that I will need surgery to remove this smile from my face. I can't wait til my next appointment. You must try this place!

Ask for DANIEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I just moved in to the Montrose area and was looking for an upscale hair salon. I looked on Citysearch and found this wonderful place!!! I made an appointment for today and was greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. I received a great cut, THANK YOU Blair and had a wonderful time. They all were very busy, but not too busy to offer me refreshments. A great glass of wine with a great haircut, now how can you beat that!!!! I will be back and am thinking of coloring my hair next time. Thanks again for the great experience, SOOOOO glad I found you all.

I got a horrible haircut-the worst one I've ever had- that is going to take me months to grow out. It's such a shame because I thought I had found such a great stylist. I had to cut off about 2 inches from the length (which is what I was initially trying to grow out in the 1st place) just to make it look somewhat even. I've now learned that sometimes pictures and simple communication just isn't enough. I will never go back to this salon.

he took me on short notice and did an amazing job on my cut. I was very scared to make the change from tony & guy, but he came with such high recommendations that I trusted him. I'm very pleased with the results and will be coming back!!!

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that Jeffrey is the sixth stylist I've had during my first year in Houston. I didn't find him because he was named Best Hairdresser by the Houston Press. Instead, the old brick building on Montrose that houses Hot Tops caught my eye, and every time I'd go by on my way home from work (around 8 or 9 pm), he was in the window working. He really listens to what you have to say and gives you an incredible cut. After an appointment with Jeffrey, I get a lot of compliments on my hair, the first time that's happened since 2004. I cannot recommend Jeff highly enough, and I like being able to call or text him directly for an appointment (713-305-7610). Jeffrey is amazing. You won't be disappointed. For this guy, the sixth time's a charm!

Shortly, I'll be re-locating to Seattle, WA and my biggest fear is never being able to find a hairdresser like Jeffrey! He's been cutting my hair for years, which in my case having hair that is fine, thin and with multiple cowlicks is challenging! What a comfort it has been knowing a professional who understands your hair needs and is focused on the details it takes to give you an outstanding cut. Two bonuses are his humor and his engaging conversations. His 2008 Houston Press Best Hairdresser is, indeed, well deserved. Want a great salon experience? Call Jeffrey @ 713-305-7610 (he's quite flexible)----you won't be sorry!

I'm 25 and have thick, longer hair; which most stylists don't know how to cut. I don't like overstyled looks, just more natural with a bit of flair.\r
I'm new to Houston and went to Jill after having several nightmare haircuts from ""stylists"" that would be better off cutting vegetables than hair. I was so reluctant to get another cut that I waited almost 6 months since my last one, and I was really looking awful! \r
Jill listened to ALL of my concerns (even my horror stories) and before cutting gave me a complete run-down of what she planned to do and made sure I was okay with every step of it. She was so kind in trying to accomodate my needs and worries, and she defintiely did not get scissor happy! She did thin it out a good bit though, so if you don't like that, you may want to tell her. She didn't talk much while cutting, but it was evident that she likes to concentrate on her work, and was very friendly when not in mid-snip.\r
She did use a razor to cut some framing around my face, which I normally do not like, but she is very skilled at it and for the first time I didn't mind the razor cutting.\r
The environment of the shop is really cozy, in a very stylishly remodeled former home, and would make just about anyone feel welcome. They receive clientele of all ages and backgrounds: from the lil elderly ladies getting their bi-weekly fluff, to the young, handsome gay men who always look their best.\r
Finally, after everything else had checked out good I began to approach the counter to pay for my new 'do wondering how much damage my bank account was about to endure. To my surprise, only $45! And, when I left a tip, they gave me a sample product/christmas gift! I almost dropped dead of sheer joy as I am used to paying at least $75 for cuts from Edward Scissorhands' relatives.\r
Overall, if you really have no idea of where to go and need a definite sure bet, call Hot Tops!

I've been looking for a new hair dresser for a while now and have specifics on how I want my hair to look. I met Jeffrey and knew instantly that he'd do a great job cutting and styling my hair based on his past experience alone. He's been in the business for over 15 years and as soon as I told him how I wanted my hair cut (a few inches off the back and big sweeping bangs), after a glass of wine and a lot of great conversation, I was looking back at myself in the mirror and my hair looked EXACTLY how I wanted it to ! That RARELY happens! He's definitely got a client for life with me and I think he's just wonderful! Ask For Jeffery Parker and you won't be disappointed. : ) Jeny P.

I used to see Jesse at Toni and Guy @ Willowbrook mall. He moved away for a couple of years and is now BACK IN HOUSTON @ HOT TOPS HAIR STUDIO in montrose!!! I'm so excited to reconnect with him. Jesse Cougot is so amazing. I was lost when he was gone. If you live in the Montrose you have no excuse not to try him out for amazing cut and color. If you live in the burbs...the drive is worth it. He is willing to stay late on weekdays for anybody! I love you Jesse. You ROCK!!! Thank you for moving back!

What would you all say is the average age group of their clientele? I'm 19 and go to St. Thomas which is the only reason I even saw the place, and after reading the reviews I'd love to check it out. However, I don't want to be the only one under the age of sixty there, know what I mean? :p

I am accustomed to waiting for at least a week to get an appointment at a salon, but not this time! The same day I called, I was given an appointment that evening with Jesse. He stayed late, even though the A/C was out, to take care of me. Jesse ROCKS! He listened to what I wanted, took the time to evaluate my hair and current cut and then explained everything he was going to do BEFORE he even shampooed my hair. He did some of the cutting with my hair wet, blew it dry and cut the rest. I have to say, this is the absolute best cut I have had and I would totaly recommend him to anyone! He also took into consideration my ""low maintenance"" life style and gave me a cut that I could let dry or blowdry and have it still look awesome. I expected treatment like this to cost big bucks, but the price was VERY reasonable and I have already made an appointment to go back so that I can keep my hair looking hot. I have to say the best reaction I got to my cut was from my husband...he was wowed (especially when we went out and it only took me 10 minutes to get my look together)! Thanks Jesse!

I made an appointment at Hot Tops to see JJ from the great reviews and i was not disappointed. I have long hair and had not had a cut in months. JJ added fullness and face framing layers to my hair and it completely changed the shape of my face(in a good way). I came in with boring long hair and left with bouncy tv hair. Thanks!!!

Pros: Friendly staff, funky and artsy

Cons: none

He's a newcomer to this salon but not to the profession - Douglas knows how to do what he loves very well! I have never felt as comfortable in a salon as I did when I was in his chair. Truly Awesome Work! THANK YOU DOUGLAS! * BOOK WITH DOUGLAS! (713) 526-1440 *

I was getting to the point of seriously going Sinead O?Conner, but then I started to going to Hot Tops. Daniel is the master of hair! Prepare yourself to enjoy a relaxing evening, drinking a glass of wine, and getting a cut that you?ll love and that lasts. I highly recommend it.

Jeff is the best reason to go to Hot Tops! I miss him all of the time and whenever I am home in TX I go to him for a haircut b/c I can't find anyone like him and I live in Manhattan! He is so unbelievably talented and the sweetest person ever. When the owner passed away things changed and not for the better but now things are back on track, there's new management and the atmosphere is much more professional! I love Hot Tops and worship Jeff!!

Jeffrey is so talented. Got my first haircut from him in 1996, but then left for a few years, chasing perfectly good cuts elsewhere that saved me a few bucks. Now that I'm back with Jeffrey (been back since 2002), I realize how much longer Jeff's haircuts last. And that there's no reason I should ever settle for less than truly loving my hair cuts. He's good at all the cuts; I've had everything from short barber styles to my current, longish, dude-in-a-rock-band do. I'm not nearly as hip as my haircuts (though I try...) \r
And I love being in Hot Tops. Cool music (thanks to Jeffrey). The old Montrose mansion is totally original on the inside--fully funky without ever leaving the realm of ""tasteful"". Everyone's really nice, too--unpretentious, even though they're all totally cool and/or really cute. I always leave there feeling energized.

Lauren is a wonderful hairdresser! She is great with color and cuts. I've gone to her with a very specific, detailed idea of the cut I wanted and she nailed it; and I've also gone to her without a clue of what I want, and she created a hair style that was absolutely stunning. She always cuts my hair to perfection!

It took me ten long bad-hair-day years to find HOT TOPS! But, it was worth every second of the wait! Jeffrey is a wizard with hair and takes the time required for each magical creation. The pampering is a plus, too. Nice to know someone will offer a drink and then a refill and munchies on weekend mornings. I love that EVENING hours are available as Jeffrey stays until 8 p.m. Helpful given my busy crazy life. If I could pack HOT TOPS into a box and take the whole shop with me when I move I'd do it in a heart beat. Pricey but worth every penny. This from a starving student too cheap to wear make-up or drive a car. The best splurge ever!

I have been having Jeff cut my hair for at least 12 yrs. I had a super short hair cut and it was always perfect when I walked out of Hot Tops. Jeff would spend soo much time making sure every hair was exact. It was always hard to find anyone that could cut short hair. Jeff is the best I have ever seen. I have been letting it grow a little and he found the most individual and stylish cut for me. He is one of the most talented hair professionals I have ever met and just a great guy!

I have my cut done by Jeff and color by Michael. They are a great combo. Strangers stop me, and frequently, to compliment my hair. Recently I have grown out my hair from a super-short layered cut to a bob. Jeff made every step of the way stylish. He is always patient and works with me to give me the cut I want. Michael does a wonderful job in giving my dark hair natural looking highlights. Highlights do not always mean blonde and he understands that. Plus the salon is open late and they are very accomodating with appointment times. Everyone is nice; no one trying to be the super-cool, trendy, condescending style-star here. Try this place and you won't be disappointed.

I went here today and got a great cut by Jeff. The salon is a must for someone not wanting the stuffy atmosphere of the chic salons nowadays....they listen to what you want and give you the hair cut you want. They want to give you what you want! I haven't been to a salon that cares in years! I am definitely not going anywhere else from now on. Jeff rocks. Good cut...nice unstuffy atmosphere...and RELAXED! THANKS!

I have passed by Hot Tops many times and for once decided to stop in. I was lucky enough to have Jennifer cut my hair. My hair is fine and limp and she made me look as though i had the hair of ten people. Jennifer also took the time to show me how to change up my look. She also gave me a week to come back in case i needed any adjustments. I haven't needed any adjustments but just the offer will bring me back to see Jennifer.\r

I was extremely nervous about a haircut that I wanted to dare to try. I showed Marisa the picture and she talked me through it from beginning to end. We talked, we laughed, she is so much fun and I had such a wonderful experience! I have been going to another salon (that I worked at) for years. I wanted something a little funkier and more ME. Marisa gave me exactly the cut that I asked for!!! It basically styles itself and I have gotten non-stop compliments on my awesome new 'do. Thanks Marisa and Hot Tops for making me such a happy gal and for finding me a new hairstylist!
