I go to Mousey Brown for Lacy, she is the BEST. She knows how to treat my curly, frizzy hair. Gets it just the color I want it and always knows exactly what I want. Most of all ther is no stuffy feeling at Mousey Brown. Unlike some other reviews here, I believe it is a bit pricey. Last time I was there I spent about $300. For color, cut and hi-lites. Also they are sometimes not even there during the hours they say they are opened. I called once and left a message nevr got a return call for my appt.

Pros: Lacy

I moved here 10 months ago and have been looking for a good salon like Goldie Locks tastes porage. I couldn't find one that was right. Bad service, good color. Bad color, good cut. Too expensive, too dirty. It was a nightmare. A friend of mine recommended Mousey Brown and I decided to go. I have never looked back. Great haircuts, great color, great atmosphere, great people and GREAT prices. I didn't have the "pay the rent, or get highlights?" dilemma because I could do both. I am very happy there, Lacy is awesome and fun. She knows what I want better than I do. I am a fan for sure.

I am new to NYC from California & i recently got my hair colored (hilights /lowlights) & cut at Mousey Brown for the first time. The stylist spent time w/ me taking about what i wanted colorwise & i felt really comfortable that we were on the same page. My hair turned out exactly the way i wanted it to & I am so happy & I feel so HOT! I have curly hair (a lot of it) & other stylists at other salons (even really expensive well known salons) have always gotten it wrong. The atmosphere is chill, fun & no egos. Also the cut was only $55 & w/ my color the whole thing was under $200. Good value for a great job. I will be coming back.

Pros: qualified, cool, affordable

Cons: not in Manhattan, tips must be in cash, no ATM nearby

i got one of those haircuts where you want to call in sick to work for like 2 months and go out and buy an assortment of fashionable hair covering head wraps from a salon i won't mention. so after about 3 months of growing out my bad cut which still looked weird, i gathered my courage and called to book an appointment with my friend's salon mousey brown. i begged the front desk guy to give me someone good and luckily for me he did! now i've got an awesome razor cut that i am totally happy with! i'm actually getting compliments on my hair! it's so nice to feel like the hairdreeser actually knows what he's doing! thanks marcel!

i had my hair done at mousey brown just recently and i was highly dissapointed.
i called and tried to make and appt. with the guy who used to do my hair and was told that he was no longer there. i ended up with an appt. with a woman who i assumed to be the owner. the haircut was VERY slow and ended up being a bit too choppy and even a little lopsided. i was so anxious just to get out of there that i didn't even bother to go back and ask to have it fixed. mousey used to be my place of choice but now i just feel like it has unfortunately gone down hill.

Pros: cheap

Cons: stylist, location

.

i think the man who cut my hair was either in a bad mood or tired.he said very little and just hacked away at my head.then when he finished he mumbled something about my hair type suiting a little gel and letting it dry naturally.when i got home with my hair looking like i had my head flushed down a toilet it dried into a big frizzy ball.thats what you get for a cheap haircut. never again.

Pros: cheap, nice looking place, great name

Cons: uninterested, lazy, rude

I am going back to Mousey since the cut I got there was equally good to the one I got at a Madison Ave salon which cost over three times as much. The people had no attitude and didn't push any products.

Was in town from Boston for the weekend, and over drinks Friday night, a friend mentioned Mousey Brown. Decided I wanted to leave NY with a new cut, so I called first thing Saturday and lucked out with an appointment that afternoon. They've moved though, to 732 Lorimer (same phone). It's a tiny little place, but the music was fun and the folks were friendly. I was very pleased with the cut and service I got from Brian. Hope he's still there when I go back in a couple of months!

I've been going here for the last year and I've had nothing but pleasant experiences and truly great haircuts for only $40. I don't know what went wrong with the poster below but I recommend this place.

I recently went to Mousey Brown for the first time and had my hair done by Tara. My cut and half a head of highlights cost $140, a true bargain in NYC for quality work. She did an excellent job, giving me a more sophisticated cut that really suits my face. She did a great job with my highlights too, giving me a summer blonde look while still looking natural. My only problem with the salon is that it is small and a bit cramped.

Pros: Inexpensive, Quality service

Cons: Small

This salon's high staff turnover is its downfall. In 8 or 10 haircuts over the last five years, I've never been able to catch the same stylist twice! For a quick trim in Williamsburg, though, it's hard to beat the cost--though look out for Mousey alums starting their own salons around the 'hood.

Homey, cozy Mousey Brown is the mom-and-pop of hair salons. Within the narrow, vaguely vintage space, customers peer out the window at McCarren Park while awaiting service. The staff, as relaxed as the clientele, includes one receptionist…
