Relied on all the positive ratings too. The most botched, crappy, rushed highlight job ever. Not even near my scalp so I still have the roots showing. She knew she screwed it up by sticking me under the dryer too long so that it bled and caused bright orange bleach spots. So, she globbed dark brown dye all over my hair to try to hide it. Total botch job but she charged full price. I went to a different place next day and set an appointment to try to have it corrected. New place could only try to get some of the dark brown dye out without damaging my hair. I'm broke and my hair looks like crap. I have to let it grow out a couple of months before the new place can do more to fix it.

Venus Hair specializes in color correction.. I don't know who did this to you, but I do know that it was not VENUS HAIR. We've been in business for 33 years and what you discribed did not occur here Becky, Jill, Venus

Becky cut my hair and it was such a good cut that it grew out perfectly for a little over two months. That's a long time to not need to go back for a trim while you're growing your hair out. VENUS HAIR is the best!

Everyone at Venus is friendly and welcoming and its such a treat to see all the decorations and costumes throughout the store. But Becky is the reason why I come. She is awesome! I have thin hair with cowlicks and she manages to surprise me each time I go with a great cut! Thanks again, Becky!

I went to Venus hoping to find my new hairstylist and I found her!!!! Becky gave me the best cut of my life! I went from having shoulder length hair to a pixie and not only did she not make me look like a man, she made me look fabulous! I cannot wait to go back to her!

I also loved the fact that the salon left the door open and gave treats to visiting 4 legged friends as they passed. What a welcoming place.

I love going to Susan Venus or Venus Hair! She is amazing and kind about everything!!! I love her and feel loved when I go in there. There are always Tootsie Pops waiting to for me in case I am on the run. If I am late, it is not a crisis and I don't get yelled at.

Oh and the cuts, that is right! The cuts are always great. If I tell her I have a conventional event tomorrow, I get a the appropriate cut. If I want a summer cut; she cuts it short. If I want to try something new she does!I love Venus! She has welcomed my family as well, and loves them the way I do! She has asked that I am bring them back. My parents are older and don't get around so well, and she makes them feel right at home. They have been happy with their cuts too!

I was given Venus Hair's name and number years ago, and found I needed it this year! It has been a joy getting to know the people there. It is also on my favorite street in the Heights. I love the Bead Shop, and Art Show there. So go there and check it out!

Venus Hair provides extraordinary Salon Service in The Heights. Their cuts are fantastic, but their expertise lies in the art of Haircolor.
Susan and her team are professional, successful Hair Colorists. They use Matrix Socolor and Matrix Color Sync, and years of experience and training to create beautiful hair for their clients...every time!
The salon has an open, warm and friendly ambiance that provides the client a unique and wonderful salon experience. And their prices should make the ""mall salons"" feel ashamed.
Venus, Jill, and Becka are a credit to the Beauty Industry.
I am honored to be their friend and business associate.

I have curly, fine hair and no one has ever cut it right. I'm 58 years old! Finally Susan Venus did it just right. I've rarely had compliments before, but as soon as I visited this shop for the first time, the compliments just kept coming--old people, young people. Two months later with the same haircut, I was still getting compliments! This is a fabulous place!

I have thick curly hair and have had the hardest time getting a good cut and color. Jill at Venus is awesome and the whole experience at Venus was fun. My hair look great and I have gotten more compliments than I can count! If you are looking to a great cut and color go see Jill at Venus.

Well ... moved f/Houston back in 9/09 and haven't had a decent haircut/style since! Thank goodness for Venus. When I came visiting back in April, Venus' was my first stop. And she did not let me down! Now if I could just import her clone to Mason County, MI where I live!!!\r

She has always been the best hair stylist ever for me! You won't be disappointed. And what a shop she has ... you'll be enamored and charmed. \r

Soon I'll be moving back to TX and you know where to find me every 2 months.

I was looking for a new stylist and checked online to see who got more thumbs up. Venus Hair Salon was by far the best rated salon in Houston... And once you go, you will see why! \r
\r
Some like the clinical look of some salons, but I love a salon that puts you at ease as soon as you step in the door. Venus Hair does just that! The chairs that you sit in while getting your hair done are the original salon chairs, the walls are covered with old salon items from bygone eras, as well as conversational pieces that are scattered in little niches in the store... I am sure that I could visit this place a thousand times and discover something new. By this point, I haven't even had my head touched and I am already loving this place... Not to mention the hearse art car that is parked right outside of the salon!\r
\r
I was scheduled to have my hair cut by Becky. My first impression from just looking at her is that this is gonna be a blast! And I was right... I told her what I was looking for and she did it just right! Not to mention, I loved talking to her... She has a great way of putting you at ease and having fun! \r
\r
Needless to say, I think that I have found my new stylist... I am gonna be going back in a couple of weeks to get my hair cut again from Becky! \r

After doing tons of online research looking for a hair salon in Houston that would be right for me, I finally settled on visiting Venus Hair. I recently moved to Houston, and after 10 years of going to the same stylist I was VERY nervous about letting anybody near my long, curly hair with scissors.

As soon as I walked in the door I felt a little more at ease. The entire salon is covered in kitschy, fun art, dolls, masks, etc. I get a little uncomfortable in sterile, modern, minimalist salons, so this type of atmosphere was great for me. Almost like an extension of home!

After talking with Becky for 10 minutes or so, I felt like I could completely trust her and put my hair in her hands. She cut my hair and I also got a gloss treatment to rev up the shine and hydrate my curls. Bottom line, she did a wonderful job with my hair! I will definitely be back for my next cut and I will be telling everyone I know in Houston about my experience.

I have personal knowledge of the referral for polish princess and am very upset. Jill is not only the best at color and cuts but is a real sweetheart ! There were quite a few facts that princess left out. If your going to tell a story lets tell all the facts. First of all she came to Jill with a request to ""fix a bad haircut"". Jill did her best and she left happy. PP came back to Venus Hair THREE more times with complaints and all three times Jill did her best to satisfy the princess. (as is her policy there was no charge for those 3 visits because Jill does whatever it takes to please the customer) Then PP made a 5th appointment for a new hair cut and told Jill she wanted her bangs notched. That is what Jill did. When PP started whining Jill stopped and informed her that there would be no charge for her 5th haircut but that she would no longer be able to cut her hair because she was uncomfortable with her requests. Keep in mind this girl had a bad haircut to begin with and came in 5 times asking for haircuts all the while stating she was trying to grow her hair out!! Helpful Hint: If you want to grow out your hair STOP asking for it to be cut ! I am a 54 year old nurse and I want Jill to know that when my daughter first brought me in it was because I was feeling depressed and really just old. ( I was looking pretty old too) Jill's hair care has made me feel and look younger, she has really made a difference in my life. I get compliments very frequently and I would follow Jill anywhere because if I have anything to say about it, I will never let anyone else touch my hair. I make my appointments six weeks in advance and always leave feeling happy and beautiful! Venus Hair is not a ""Quirky"" Salon it is awesome with originality. I have also noticed the fact that Venus cuts hair for seniors at a very reduced rate. How much more could you possibly want out of a hair salon. So my advice to polish princess is yeah go back to the mall. That may be the best place for you. But as for me and many many other satisfied customers, well keep hanging out at Venus Hair where the happy people go. So sorry you had to be booted out :)

I have used Venus hair for over a year. I go once a month like clockwork. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you need color correction, this is the place to go. Jill is my stylist and is an artist and master at color and high lighting. Venus has owned this salon for YEARS and she did my hair once when Jill was out of town. Loved her work as well. I feel very lucky that I have found this little shop that is easy to get to in the Heights and takes such good care of me. The idea of trying to find another stylist or salon is as scary as the idea of dating again! Thank you so much ladies for all your hard work, and the fun, dedicated customers you've got that make all my visits so much fun!

I've been going to Jill @ Venus Hair for over two years now. Terribly disappointed to read the last review...I too was looking for an alternative to the Toni & Guy salon and totally found it. Jill has been doing a great job! She does amazing color...check out her photos on the Venus site. I've gotten tons of compliments, both on color and style. I'm sorry that Polishprincess has the perception of a bad experience...I love this place and will be a customer for a long time to come.

I called in desperation and made an appointment with Susan Venus to save my hair from a disastrous haircut. I had long hair and the short hair had no style.\r
Susan took time to ask what I wanted and I told her I wanted a short easy care-free style. She gave me the best short hair style I have ever had. She cut the style appropriate for my hair texture - thick and curly. I love it! It is a cute bob with bouncy curly layers.\r
I will go back and have her style my hair again.

Highlights are slopped on in a hurry so they don't even get near your scalp (the reason you're there in the first place is to get rid of new growth but you'll still have it.) She stuck me under the dryer too long creating bleed (bright orange bleached out blotches). She tried to hide her crappy job by globbing dark brown dye all over my hair making it nearly black. Then she had the gall to charge full price. Went to a new salon next day and set an appointment to correct my hair. All they could do was try to get some of the dark dye out. I have to live with crappy, blotchy hair for two months before they can do more without damaging my hair further. I'm broke and my hair has never looked worse!!

Traumatic childhood/teen/adult experiences taught me that while hair does indeed grow back, the interim experience tends to be brutal. \r
\r
Due to learning lessons the hard way, hair salons are now something I have no problem being a snob about. After a mullet experience not too long ago, I now run in the opposite direction of a friend of a friend cutting my hair or finding the 'best deal' on haircuts in town. I'd rather not look like Billy Ray OR Carrot Top, thank you. \r
\r
Jill at Venus is the only person in Houston who I trust to take shears to my hair. Sometimes I go in with a photo of a cut I want, other times I just need a few inches lopped off to get me back where I was the last time I was there. Never have I left the salon in tears or had to go back and have Jill fix her cut. \r
\r
The prices for haircuts are outstanding and Jill has a legion of followers. I met one the other day out of the blue and we both rhapsodized over Jill's expertise. A fair price, awesome skills, and many fans is a triple-threat for booking a cut, so call a week or so ahead. Saturdays seem to be the busiest and I have never seen them take a walk-in, but the planning ahead is worth it.

Never have I left the salon in tears or had to go back and have Jill fix her cut. \r
\r
The prices for haircuts are outstanding and Jill has a legion of followers. I met one the other day out of the blue and we both rhapsodized over Jill's expertise. A fair price, awesome skills, and many fans is a triple-threat for booking a cut, so call a week or so ahead. Saturdays seem to be the busiest and I have never seen them take a walk-in, but the planning ahead is worth it.

Pros: Jill

Cons: Walk-in appointments hard to come by

I went here after some friends suggested I try it since my hairdresser had moved to Florida two years ago and I had not had my hair done since. Let me say this was the best decision I have made when it comes to my hair. Venus(Susan) cut, colored and styled my hair and she is totally amazing !! The salon is an experience in and of itself and I enjoyed every moment I was there (almost four hours) !!! These ladies really know what they are doing and treated every single person who came in like they were their best friend ! Susan, Jill and Sharon are three of the nicest ladies I have ever met and I will never go anywhere else !!! Oh, and one more important thing ! The price was much less than I have paid in the past and the end result was better !!! It cant get any better than that !!!

Jill gave me exactly the haircut I wanted and beautiful blue streaks, plus lots of good advice on how to maintain the color, for a very reasonable price.

I've been to Venus hair salon twice since I have moved in to the neighborhood. I couldn't be more pleased. I have never had a color last as long as the one done by Jill. I had so many compliments weeks even after my hair was cut. I have short hair and if it still looks great 3-4 weeks after a cut you know your hairdresser did a fantastic job. Everyone is super friendly and interesting to speak with.

Not only does Susan do a most thorough and long-lasting color job on my very-resistant gray hair, she takes great care to protect it as it is baby-fine and delicate. I have not been to any other colorist who makes my hair look this good and does not damage it.\r
In addition, when I have an appointment to get my hair done, I look forward to a laid-back and interesting experience. I enjoy taking time out of my busy schedule to go to Venus Hair as much as I appreciate the look of my hair when I walk out the door. It is a pleasurable way to get my hair colored and visit with friends.

I thought I had finally found the stylist for me when I first went to Venus Salon. However, on my third visit - an appointment I made six weeks in advance for the first timeslot of the day (9:00 a.m.) - I walked in to find Jill working on someone else. She explained that the woman had to pick her daughter up at 11:00 so she was going to take her first. She said she'd only be 10 minutes getting her color started and then could take me. She asked if I was ""cool with that"". I told her I would live and I took a carefully-timed 10minute walk. When I returned, she was about half way through getting the color on. Susan Venus was there, saw the whole thing, and never said a word.\r
\r
Bottom line, if you're ""cool with"" having your appointment given away for bogus reason, this is cleary the salon for you. However, if you think that making an appointment six weeks in advance and showing up on time entitles you to expect your appointment to be honored, this might not be the place for you.

I love coming here. Jill did great job on my haircut and color. When I go to Venus there is so much to keep me busy. Whether its looking at all the cool stuff on the wall, or chatting with the stylists and patrons. I'm so glad I found Venus Hair!

Pros: close to my work

Cons: far from home

What can I say...except the I am blown away by Venus Hair. Let me explain.

I returned to Houston from NYC last summer and unfortunately let my hair grow out very long and it lost it's short cut shape. See, I have very curly hair. I mean REALLY curly hair. And to find a stylist who can work with my hair is sometimes a tall order.

When I went to another salon in town (near my home in the Montrose) I asked for a short cut. But my stylist couldn't do it. Seemed like she was afraid to take off the hair. Then I gave her one more chance and still she was unable to cut off the long hair....much to my chagrin.

Enter Venue Hair. I walked in last Friday and asked if they took walkins. Sharon looked at me and said YES! Then I told her I wanted to cut it all off. No problem, she says... Lastly, I told her that I needed to be done in 45 minutes. Again, she said...""No Problem.""

And in 30 minutes I walked out of Venus with a GREAT hair cut at a great price. I couldn't be more pleased!!!

And I am now a devotee of Venus Hair. No need to look any further for a great haircut in Houston.

I've been going to Susan Venus for about eight years. I have never had a bad experience! It's amazing what she can do with color (and it's not easy keeping away the grey)! The shop is quirky and very much an institution in the Heights. You'll never let anyone else touch your hair.

Okay so I have a hard time sticking to one stylist, I hop around alot, because I never stay interested by them. But I have put that to rest now, because unless I die I will always go to SHARON to get my hair done. Her personality, friendliness, charismatic charm, and professionalism are by far her best qualities. I went to her initially because I had an itch to have a new look, and boy was I impressed. I took a few pictures and she and I both came up with a unique look just for me. Since then i've been back many times, each time changing it up and she's right along with me. Now when I get compliments i'm always telling people, ""Go see my girl Sharon!""

I needed an elegant look for a charity gala and Sharon took care of me. She is an artist! This was my first visit to Venus Hair and I loved the atmosphere. People truly love working there. I know I will go again and recommend it to my friends.

This place is AWESOME. Today was the first day I went in and I immediately felt welcomed. The staff is unbelievablyyyyyyyyy friendly. The minute you walk in there, you feel like a little kid in a candy shop, the walls are off the chain and the service is even better. The haircut itself was really really good, i don't think im going to ever let anyone touch my hair again. you should definitely check this place out.

After reading all the reviews about Venus Salon I decided to face my fears of another bad haricut and try it out. (I have been growing out my terrible haircut and bad highlights, from another salon, since last August!) Jill is truly fantastic! She is cool and down to earth and spent hours doing my hair exactly like I specified. As a blond, if you don't weave multiple colors through your hair, you will look unnatural or like a zebra. Today, my hair looks like I have spent hours in the sun and my hair was naturally lightened. Jill is definitely more than a stylist, she is an artist. \r

Venus is in Downtown Heights, so on the weekends there are a ton of people wandering through the shops. People kept stopping to look at Venus' awesome art car and to check out the inside of the salon which is decorated floor to ceiling with paintings, masks, dolls, and crosses. It is like a working museum. All in all, everything written about Venus Hair is accurate. It is like a hidden gem in the middle of historic Houston and I will be recommending this salon to everyone I know!

I surfed the net and went to Venus Hair Salon based on the excellent rating that they have received from majority of their customers. I had Jill cut, style, and color my hair. I received lots of compliments from my husband and friends. Jill is very professional, competent, and sensitive to my needs. Definitely, it won't be my first visit and highly recommends this place to my friends and family.

Pros: Service, price, experienced and professional hairdressers, location

Cons: Had to schedule appointment several days ahead because they're booked easily.

The walls are jam-packed with masks and other knick-knacks, but get past the light-hearted interior and you can find experienced hair-dressers.
