I recently moved back to the Houston area and was looking to try a new hair place for a cut and color. I found Uruku Salon on Citysearch and read about the great reviews about Anthony and was SO happy I did - Anthony did an amazing cut and the color is PERFECT! I have been coloring my hair for years, and have always struggled to achieve the right color - it was always either too dark, too red, etc., so I explained to Anthony what I was hoping for and he delivered! I have never been so happy with my color. I love URUKU and the Kerastase products they use and will be going back to this salon for a long time to come!

I have lived in Houston Heights/Montrose/River Oaks areas for 5 1/2 years and have tried several hair stylists. I was looking for someone who could create a style for me that made me look and feel younger. I wanted this style to be modern and cute. I found the perfect stylist through a gift I received at an auction. How lucky am I! Anthony at Uruku has cut my hair for 6 months now. I have had several compliments on my cut and have given the salon contact info. to several of my friends.
The salon is very clean and the people are fun and friendly. I never have more than a five minute wait. I always look forward to the head and neck massage and the pampering I get at Uruku.
You can't go wrong with Anthony at Uruku!

Anthony at Uruku has been cutting my hair for over a year now and I highly recommend him. I've never been happier and love the rest of the team who always greets me with cheer and genuine warmth, which is welcome after a stressful day or work week.

I was referred to Uruku when I admired a stranger's wonderful short haircut. One day, I just dropped in hoping to make an appointment. They treated my like a VIP with a hand massage, vino and fit me into Anthony's busy schedule, because truly I was desperate for a new look! I've never looked back and wouldn't consider another venue. He understands my hair, my personal style and works with me to create a look that is both sophisticated and playful. I love the dry cut, it makes so much sense and I think works especially well with my fine hair. I've always been disappointed with that "just cut" hair look that typically happens when hair is cut wet and then dries and pulls up. That just isn't the case with the method he uses.

I've also tried also tried highlights. . They were placed perfectly and just the right color to lighten up my face. Of course, sometimes when you change color, the face makeup needs to be touched up as well, and their resident makeup artist came to the rescue . I received rave reviews when I got back to the office after a lunchtime appointment.

I do not have experience with the other stylists in the salon, but I understand Anthony trains them and they go through training with Aveda. So I would consider using if Anthony were not available.

Again, I'm super happy with Uruku and recommend to all my friends. Hope your days are all "good hair" days! Mine are since i found Uruku!

Worst highlights I ever had!!! Those highlights look like I made them myself (and I am not a stylist). I called to speak to the supervisor and asked for a callback but he did not call me back.

I received a gift card from a Tootsies event to come to this salon, along with other gift cards to other salons. I chose this one because I read so many good things about it on this website. You are all wrong!

Being a fabulous, reputable salon, you would expect numerous clients in here, as well as staff. There were neither of the two. I was the only client and James was the only staff.

He proceeded to sit me down in the most uncomfortable chair I have sat in in a salon. It was hard as a brick. Then he kept asking me, "so what is the problem you are having with your hair?" Do I have to have a problem? Hair does grow and sometimes you just need it cut, don't you think? And that was all he said about my hair! The rest of the time I was there, he would not shut up. He kept talking about Anthony, the owner, and trips they had gone on, and his life in San Francisco, housing, life in Houston, and he would not shut up about his Mercedes and scooter. Now I don't know about you, but when I go somewhere, I want it quiet and I want to relax and be pampered. None of that was happening!

Another problem I had was that on their website, it says you get lots of complimentary items, such as a head massage, hand massage, etc. I received nothing. I take that back, I received nasty, cheap wine. The thing I find appalling is that he set my wine down on his hair cart and then began to cut my hair dry. Well, if you have not had this done, here is what happens: since the hair is not weighted down by water, it flys. There was hair EVERYWHERE, including in my drink. And when he finished with me (after my cut, wash and dry) there was hair ALL OVER my shirt. Did he wipe it off or offer to do something about it? NO! And I had on a black shirt! They should know better than to let that happen. It is common courtesy.

Then we go to wash my hair. He literally squirts a little shampoo in his hands and just smoothes it over my hair. There was no lathering, or really even any cleaning of the hair. There was no hot towel wrap like it says on the website. There was no head massage, either. The same goes for the conditioner. He did not take the time to really "wash and clean" my hair. Then we go back to his station and he blow drys it. Then he sprays something in it and makes it all messy and says, "doesn't this look fabulous?" AND THAT WAS IT!!! There was no flatironing it or hairspraying my bangs in place and he never even let me see the finished product. He just walked away and up to the front desk to check me out.

I will NEVER go back to this salon! And I might even recommend that he never come to Tootsies again either, because he said he works for them, in the conversation he was having with himself.

I had picked up a pair of glasses and walked down to Uruku because I noticed that they are an Aveda salon. We'll that was the end of that, I walked in everyone was so nice and willing to help right away. I girl at the counter first started to help me and then brought me to a new product named "Caretrico", then James stepped in. He asked if he could wash my hair with the new product and I hesitated a bit, wonder why some one would offer to do that! I said yes he took be back and got me ready. We out of the blue I asked if he could cut my hair, we'll he said yes sure!!! WHAT REALLY!! Long story short, he cut my hair talked to me the entire time, did not pass me off, washed my hair, put fabulous Arimino product in my hair, blow dried my hair and it was perfect.
I have been looking for someone like James for several years, he's the best! "I bought all the product"!

I always enjoy my experience at Uruku and have visited more than one stylist. They are experienced and take the time to listen to you before they begin cutting or coloring. The Aveda hair color is wonderful and I love all the other Aveda products. A great salon!

After walking in a few minutes before closing... And, without an appointment. I was sure that I was going to have to wait until the next business day to get a haircut. I was pleasantly surprised when I was graciously asked to have a seat! JAMES was extremely kind and took great care of me. I have been back several times, and I even pre book my appointments with him. I have always been 110% satisfied with the service I receive from him, and the staff at Uruku.

I loved the service at this salon, the people are very professional and they treat you as someone very special. I have gone there for three different services, from facial, styling and coloring hair. So pleased with the three services. My hair was in such a state of breakage and dehydration by my hair color, and they manage to create a great color for me, and used all different types of masks and treatment, that my hair changed drastically. I definitely recommend it

I booked with Alan for a in salon hair treatment and cut. My hair is coarse, curly and dry. I couldn't believe the final result. He used a Kerastase product that left my hair soft and smooth. Loved the haircut too. The salon is easy to find and everyone made me feel welcome. Great place!

I went to Ukuru after feeling a little like some other salons in Houston treated me like I was going through a conveyor belt at a factory. I hadn't had my hair colored in years and was bored with my current hairstyle.

I made an appointment with Stephanie and basically told her that I wanted subtle highlights and a change in my hairstyle-but not too drastic. That's a pretty challenging order, since it's pretty vague! But, she did a great job. The treatment started with a nice scalp massage, using an oil that I had chosen. She then cut and highlighted my hair very nicely. I was very pleased with the results. Stephanie listened to me and we had a good conversation. Everyone else was friendly and one of the other stylist even helped us pick a shade for the highlights.

The results have been great. It has been almost four months since my visit and I still get compliments about my hair at least once a week (from men and women)! I will definitely go there again!!

I went to get my haircut at Uruku today....I was nervous because I had never been there before, but, as soon as they assigned me and my crazy hair to Crystal, it set my mind at ease. She was genuinely friendly and definately knew what she was doing! My hair looks better than it has in years!!

I really enjoyed my experience here. After having several messed up dye and cut jobs from other places I finally went here and came out so pleased with the results. My hairdresser managed to do what I wanted and fix the problems from the other places. Since then I have been back once and I really appreciate when a hair dresser listens when you say... "I only want a TRIM."

I enjoyed the relaxing spa like experience at this little shop. The aromatherapy and neck message before the haircut was very nice. The complimentary glass of wine added an even nicer touch, but the haircut was what I came for. I was not disappointed. The stylist listened and gave her imput. The cut was everything that I had wanted. The whole staff was warm and friendly. I will gladly return to Uruku Salon.

I got my hair done at another salon in the River oaks area, like I had been doing for over 2 years, and my color when uneven, streaky and some of the blonde was orange. I went to Uruku---and Crystal did an amazing job bringing my hair back to life. It looked natural and even again. Uruku is my new salon!!!!!

first, they called me to reschedule my appointment earlier because their ac wasn't working. i was already pretty annoyed cause i planned my whole day around having my hair done at 3 o' clock..but i was just like okay..whatever..then, the girl had to dye my hair twice cause she didn't do it properly the first time and once she started dying it the second time she wasn't trying to hide how she felt about it..sighing and breathing hard and pulling at my hair..then she told me that she charges 20 dollars extra if i want my hair styled...i have never heard of that before, anytime i get my hair colored, they always style it..that's part of the 70 dollar fee..i figured she was just too lazy to style it cause the other lady didn't style my friend's hair because she was too hot since they didn't have ac..then the girl offers me a free hair cut voucher if she doesn't have to style my hair..i took the hint. reluctantly, because i am never going back there so that voucher is worthless, and ugh..i was just so upset cause i have naturally curly hair so it has to be styled somehow, at least blowdryed..and since i had to walk around and go eat with wet hair by the time i got home to style it myself it was all frizzy! grrrrrr...the main reason i like to go to the salon to get my hair done and pay that much money is so that they will style it and it will look really nice. not so i can walk around town with wet hair and then go home and style it myself. my friend got her hair cut and we were both extremely disappointed with the service.

Called and got an appointment the next day. My appointment was right after work and the complimentary scalp and neck massage was just what I needed. I really liked my dry cut from Daniel. He's extremely friendly, yet professional. He was very attentive to my hair needs and gave good tips without me even asking. He's a fast talker though so listen closely. Another plus - he offers to trim bangs for free if you become a regular . I've already made an appointment for my next visit.

I had my hair cut & highlighted in April and had a great experience with Daniel. He is very professional, yet personable and friendly. I was happy with the amount of time he took with my hair - felt pampered and relaxed. He also gave me extra hair care tips. I recently moved to Houston and was happy to find another Aveda salon- I really appreciate their products and approach to hair/skin care and the environment.

I went there to see Daniel..he is so great. The salon its self is so inviting. The staff there are so welcoming. Daniel is a great stylist. He dry cuts your hair standing up in front of a mirror..so cool. He makes sure eveything he is cutting is how you want it to look!

i do not feel that some of the reviews is the real representation of this Salon or Daniel. I have been a customer of Daniel's for the last 10 years and i am an African American with curly haif. He is the only other person in Texas that has cut or colored my hair and he has done a great job. I have always had a great expereince at the shop and the information that is told in this review is very wrong.

This salon for one is a diverse environment and i have never seen them treat anyone any different from myself. They are pleasant and personable and very accomodating.

I am originally from the East coast and do not like the salons that make you sit there all day while they are gossiping and working on more then 2 people at the same time. I am used the great service that I get from Uruku Salon and Daniel.

I am a women of color and Danny will continue to cut, color and styled my hair since he has been doing a great job for the last 10 years. Maybe you are used to a different type of salon, every place is not the same. I have also recommended many of my colored girl friends to him and they have had to problem

He is the only other person in Texas that has cut or colored my hair and he has done a great job. I have always had a great expereince at the shop and the information that is told in this review is very wrong.

This salon for one is a diverse environment and i have never seen them treat anyone any different from myself. They are pleasant and personable and very accomodating.

I am originally from the East coast and do not like the salons that make you sit there all day while they are gossiping and working on more then 2 people at the same time. I am used the great service that I get from Uruku Salon and Daniel.

I am a women of color and Danny will continue to cut, color and styled my hair since he has been doing a great job for the last 10 years. Maybe you are used to a different type of salon, every place is not the same. I have also recommended many of my colored girl friends to him and they have had to problem

Pros: Love the hot washclothes

Cons: Early appointments

.

DANIEL DID A GREAT CUT AND BLOWDRY MY HAIR. I HAVE VERY CURLY CRAZY HAIR AND HE BLEW IT OUT WITHOUT USING A FLAT IRON AND MOST HAIRDRESSERS HAVE TO USE A FLAT IRON BECAUSE OF HOW TIGHT MY CURLS ARE. MY CUT WAS GREAT!!!!!!!!

Pros: They give you a great experience (massage, wash, scents)

Cons: no drawbacks!

.

The environment is the only thing that is nice about this place (Westheimer location); the staff is very rude, and if you are African American (non-Hispanic/Caucasian) you are automatically stereotyped. I simply asked Daniel to "trim my ends", and he literally chopped my hair off. Every time I think about, or look at my hair I instantly get upset, because the first thing you are taught in Cosmetology is to LISTEN.
I can say this, if you know so much about hair, and think you know everything there is to know..how about you find another Profession. The entire staff is close minded, arrogant, and disrespectful. This is not so much as an opinion it's actual FACTS, I seriously hate my hair, and I just pray to God that it continue to grow healthy. One thing I can add is that you should never look at someone and judge them, it's a very uncomfortable feeling, and it's unforgettable.
My advice to Daniel, NEVER touch a woman of color hair, EVER...you have better luck cutting grass. Stop thinking that you know everything there is to know, when you don't know ish at all. Nobody like liars, well at least I don't, and maybe you need someone to tell you. Constructive criticism, take it, and LEARN.

I was a walk-in, and I was taken care of immediately. The personal stylist (Crystal) was fantastic - the best haircut I have ever had! I loved the personal attention and relaxing atmosphere. Wonderful!!!!

Been searching for a hairdresser after my 15 year hairdresser moved to Clear Lake (I tried driving it for 6 months but gave up in the end). I've tried quite a few before a friend recommended Danny to me. He did a great job and on top of that, gave a great head and neck massage! My hair is in transition (the last hairdresser chopped quite a bit off the front of my hair) so it's growing out and Danny gave me a haircut I can live with for the time being!

Pros: haircut and attention to detail

Cons: so far, nothing

.

The staff is very nice and funny. The "new talent" hair cutters are nice, however, they are still getting acclimated to this place and can take some time to cut your hair, but in the end it looks great and they are friendly.

I needed to do something about my hair other than clip it up and ignore it. I looked at reviews and chose Uruku because they listed costs for services so I knew where I stood. I chose a Level 1 cut and was lucky enough to get Stephanie. I explained that I was a minimalist and had as little to do with my hair as possible. She suggested updating my look and spent a lot of time making it happen. It is a great cut and passed the shampoo and let it dry test the next day. Still great!

I just drove by and decided to get my hair cut. I told Daniel what I was looking for and he delivered that and more. He gave me tips on styling it myself. And went above duty by offering to trim my bangs for free in between haircuts!! It was a great experience. I will admit I was a bit nervous about just walking in, but I love the cut and I have gotten so many compliments from everyone! I will be going back in a couple of weeks for a color!!

Pros: friendly, professional, discount for 1st time, no wait

Cons: could be pricey except they gave discount and coupons

.

The hairdresser I had was inexperienced with color and the solon did not look up to par with other Aveda solons. This was very disappointing for an Aveda salon.

I went there with a picture of what I wanted and my hair came out nothing like it. I thought it may end up looking somehwat similar, but I walked in with hair closer in color to the picture than when I left....nearly 4 hours & $300 later. He put "highlights" on my hair and then when he was done, it looked like there were basically no highlights! My picture looked like heavy highlights. So, he said that he could put a "few" more in. He ended up doing my whole head over again. I don't think this guy was experienced.

Also, the hairdresser made me stand up to get my hair cut....not real nice after I had been there so long, it was late (for me on a work night) at night.

To top it off, I got a paraffin hand wax and it seriously burned my hand. I started to take my hand out and the hairdresser pushed it back in saying that my hand had to be submerged in it. I pulled it out screaming....that hurt me so bad. But I tried not to make a big deal of it.

I called the owner to talk about my hair because I was so unhappy with it. It took her two days to call me back (I called a couple of times) and was VERY rude to me. She interrupted me and wouldn't let me talk. I'm a VERY nice person (as evidence by me not saying much about them burning my hand!) and can't believe this lady was so rude. She said I could come back and speak with their "expert" colorist but the timing didn't work out because he is only there on certain days. I just gave up and don't want to waste my time.

I just walked in off the street to ask for a price guide...and I was so won over by the friendly staff and their first timer's 20% discount that I decided to get my hair cut right away.

My Creative Designer, Daniel, treated me and my hair concerns with respect. He gave me his recommendation, based on my hair type and my preferences. I absolutely love my new, easy-to-fix style.

The whole atmosphere was welcoming and relaxing, from the warm hand towels, the warm buckwheat and lilac shoulder wrap, the basil tea, the neck and shoulder massage, and, of course, the wonderful hair cut. I've been raving about the experience ever since!

I will definitely be going back to the salon.

I went to this salon simply based on seeing it driving by. Daniel both cut and colored my hair. He was both fun and skilled. He offered suggestions which worked out great, gave me some tips, and was enjoyable to sit with for the 1+ hours that it takes to get a cut and color.

I was able to talk with other employees and plan to use their facial services in the future as well.

Another thing I really liked was Daniel's guarantee of sorts. He let me know if I didn't like the cut or color to feel free to come back within 7 days and he would fix it. I didn't need to use this guarantee because I loved what he did but it was nice to know it was available.

I highly recommend this salon.

Daniel was very knowledgable and took good care of me. I'm use to eight dollar haircuts and sports clips cuts so this was definitely a change of pace. I want a style not just another haircut and that is what I recieved, good location I will be returning.

Finally got around to writing this. Got a cut Memorial Day weekend with Stephanie. (Originally scheduled for someone else, but was double-booked. Since I hadn't been there before, I went with Stephanie as the receptionist suggested).

They do a small aromatheraphy session and head/shoulder massage as part of the cut, which was great. They also do dry-cutting (washing and drying after cut), which I'd never had before.

Stephanie was great. I brought a picture to give her an idea, she adapted it to my hair and lifestyle. Stephanie has a great eye for a cut, and my boyfriend said it's the best cut he's seen on me (that's a few years' worth!).

The new client coupons and coupon for reviewing brought me in, and the great cut will keep me coming back!

I have gone to Uruku several times and will continue to go back. I have gotten two facials there- great results, relaxing. I got my hair and makeup done there for my wedding- I looked great, they were very accessible and understanding when I came in late. I have gotten my hair cut there 3 times- Crystal is great.

I went to Uruku salon a few weeks ago and had a great stylist named Chrystal! She gave me a great cut that has lasted through many weeks. I have long hair and many stylists like to take off more than I ask. Chrystal did exactly what I asked and made my hair look great! She also knows lots of insider tips to use at home to keep your hair looking healthy. She also recommended wonderful Aveda products.

The whole staff at Uruku pampers you as soon as you walk in the door. They give you a neck rest with filled with warm lavender beads, and a cold bottle of water when you get there. Chrystal also gave me a wonderful head massage with Aveda aromotherapy oils.

I will be making another appointment with her for next week, and I'm looking forward to going back. If you're looking for a salon with great stylists and a spa-like experience check out Uruku salon!
