I have been going to Venus Hair salon to see Jill since I moved to Houston five years ago. Jill is an extraordinary stylist and I can't imagine ever going to anyone else. The prices can't be beat!

Venus had a packed house when I went for my haircut and highlights, but she manages all the traffic coming in and out of her shop so well. I enjoyed my time there...which isn't something I usually say about visiting a hair salon. But Venus is something special! The haircut and highlights were great as well!

Pros: Great value for her experience level

Cons: Don't expect a quiet, relaxing spa visit

I went to Venus Hair with the remnants of the worst haircut I have ever had. I figured that it would take 2 or more cuts to get it back to a managable state. Wrong. Jill took her time, was very precise, listened exactly to what I wanted and I got a GREAT haircut. After an afternoon working in my back yard... it still looked great.\r
\r
The price was also one of the most reasonable I have encountered in Houston. Go to Venus Hair...ask for Jill

I went to Venus after reading these reviews and was extremely disappointed. I just moved to Houston. Jill cut my hair. I asked her for a trim and to follow my previous cut. I am now lop-sided and she ruined my previous cut. I was also disappointed that there was no wash/style with the cut and that it was a dry cut. When I have had a dry cut in the past, they have washed it, blown it straight and then cut it. I don't see how you can get a good cut working with dirty bed-head hair. They were quite nice however and I enjoyed the decor and atmosphere of the place but I will never go back.

I recently went on CitySearch to find a new hairdresser after trying several Galleria area salons. I've been trying for years to get a cerain look that fits me and my personality. I was really surprised when I walked into Venus Hair due to the decor. However, I am a woman who likes to try new things and I gave it a shot. I have to tell you that Jill did an absolutely fantastic job on my hair. I have gotten more compliments in the last 30 days than I received in the last five years. I have tried various salons, spending more money that I wanted to. I was more than pleased with my haircut and its been almost a month since my last haircut and my hair still looks great. I was even more pleased with the cost of my haircut. YOU NEED TO GIVE JILL A TRY. Thanks so much Jill for a super fantastic haircut!!!!

Pros: Very friendly atmosphere

Cons: not close to home

You sure can spot a bogus review like the one below.
No employees are named and they use very specific salon jargon but here is the main thing.
If you mess up my haircut that I paid for, i am not going to somewhere else and pay them to fix it. Would You?
YOU will fix it regardless of any costs or problems you incur.
I love getting haircuts by Venus. Its like buying a new suit only cheaper. For days I strut around getting compliment after compliment and it makes me feel good.

I've read these reviews and I'm wondering if I went to the same place. I was so excited to go to Venus because of the reviews I read. I have thick, dry, and medium length hair. I have been told to warn the person who answers the phone about this, which is what I did. When I went in February, the person who cut my hair was inexperienced and did not know what to do with my hair. I have long layers....that's it! I just wanted a trim. I was sitting in the chair getting mortified by the minute. As she was trying to style it, the owner told her not to ""waste her time"" and to just flat iron it wet. Not a good feeling here. Also, my haircut was done with dry hair (no shampoo until after the cut). And I was still charged about what I usually pay. Needless to say, I'm never returning.

I don't understand the previous review. I have gone to Venus Hair four times, and am so happy! It is a great haircut, and Jill showed me ways to style it. I have also had more compliments on my hair since ""the new girl"", Jill has been cutting it than any other stylist I have ever gone to. I love Venus Hair, and many of my friends are going to book appointments because they think my hair has been styled perfectly for my kind of hair and the shape of my face. Jill, you and Venus rock! I also love the freindly atomosphere of the salon and the reasonable prices.

I went to Venus Hair on 08/05/06 and got the best color and cut I've had in quite some time. When I went in, my hair was over processed, frizzy, and brassy. After Venus' corrective color I finally look like ""me"" again. My husband usually never notices when I change my hair, but that day he did. He commented several times how much he loved the color! As for the cut, it's perfect! Venus took the time to listen to my needs and gave me the perfect cut for my busy schedule. I have curly hair that can sometimes be difficult to magage: Venus gave me styling and product recommendations that have allowed me some extra shut-eye in the morning! My only regrets are that I didn't find Venus sooner, and that I didn't post this review sooner.

went to venus after reading all the great reviews and hearing that it was so affordable. i just want to warn people to be careful- b/c the stylist i got was very scissor happy and cut much more than i wanted. not only was it too short it had too many layers and not enough style. another friend of mine went and also had a similar experience. sometimes it's worth it to pay a little bit more. if i could go back in time i would. i would just recommend the newer stylist to pay more attention to what people ask. she'll be more likely to have return customers. two weeks later - i am here to tell you i couldn't do anything with my hair so i went to a different stylist who clearly showed me how uneven my hair was in the back -- one side was obviously shorter than the other. also the first thing she said was ""it's very texturized."" well i had asked for no texturization at all. it will take a long time for me to get my hair back to just the way it was, much less the way i want it to be. i had to have more inches cut off just to make it even and i was trying to grow it. very very disappointing. i agree with the person who said those who loved the new gal must have simple hair or styles. she certainly needs more practice/training.

Wanted to check in again and say thanks to the gals at Venus. Jill has cut my hair several times with the same result: Easy to style, dry-n-go hair. Another perk to the dry cut method is that I can go for a trim during my lunch hour and still have time to eat lunch! \r

Today (12/7/06) I saw Susan for a root touch-up. She does an excellent job because the color doesn't fade. I have naturally dirty blonde hair (which is now dark brown-thanks to Susan) & previous attempts at color with very pricey salons would fade after one shampoo.\r
The first time Susan darkened my hair, the color lasted for months! Now, I only need the roots touched up every other month depending on my hair growth. Susan is truly a color expert!\r
The salon is frequented by the nicest customers & the conversation is always entertaining. Jill has also done my hair in the past & she does an excellent job as well. \r
I hope you two have a Very Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!

I just had my 50th b-day and needed something extra. I came out with beautiful red hair with highlights of a different shade of red, and hope for my future. Ms. Venus really listens and was even able to intuit what I needed and wanted. The place is funky and cool, and enjoyed talking to Jill and the customers that stopped in. It has that cool vibe to it. I'll be back for sure!!!

I come in every couple of months from West Texas to get my hair cut and colored. Venus is the best! The salon is always clean and friendly and the staff are creative and talented. On Saturday afternoons you can meet Huey Long, the last surviving member of the Ink Spots. On Tuesdays, Betty is there to give the best pedicure the foot massage I've managed to find anywhere.

Venus has been cutting my hair for 10 + years and i always leave with exactly what I ask for... a little longer in the winter and a little shorter in the summer. Sometimes I get to visit with old friends and other times I meet new friends. LOVE IT! I was diving 25 miles and now that I have moved I will drive closer to 90 miles but it is worth evey mile!\r

This place is funky, eccentric, warm and has a real heart beat. It is not a homoginized, cookie cutter mall salon. I walked in as a brassy, washed out yellow headed mop and walked out as fabulous re-headed vixen! Great people watching too. It is terrific to see a business that is important to the community AND a community that is important to the business owner!

I was tired of paying $60-$100 for a haircut, so I started searching for a place to get a great haircut and not pay a fortune. I'm so happy I found Venus! They have great prices and the staff is awesome. Jill really listened to me and I walked out with the exact haircut I wanted and I still had money for shopping! Jill educated me on how to keep my hair healthy. She gave lots of tips and pointers that the expensive places never gave. I highly recommend Venus and Jill.

A bright, fun and artistic shop dedicated to style for both the eclectic and conventional customer. Venus' caters to a wide range of customers. I see the retirees getting their hair piled high, younger folks receiving muli colored styles and men shorn and dyed too.
I've had my hair cut there many times over the past years, quickly and skillfully. Before I'd went to Venus' I'd always wondered about it, with its curious atmosphere. I finally made it there and have not wanted to go anywhere since. To see Venus in the Heights parade etc. is always heartwarming. A great value and experience to be had by all.

What a great find!!!! LOVE YOUR SHOP! It's like Big city meets Mayberry meets
Northern exsposure meets Funky Town. No pretention here!!! You are made to feel right at home! Not like the generic , arogant , and sterile shop enviroments we are
all use to. And I got a great hair cut!!! and I am picky. And a bonus is that you are
surrounded by Antique shops, Art Gallerys, gift shops, vintage clothing, a deli a
caffe etc, that are just as unique and awesome in there own right!
19th street in the Heights, a real Treasure!

I waited years to get my hair cut and styled because I didn't want anyone messing up my long hair and cutting too much. After about a year of researching Houston salons and asking a lot of women ""Who did your hair?"", I made an appointment at Venus Hair. All I can say is that I could not be more pleased with the way Venus cut and styled my hair. I am still thrilled just to look at it in the mirror---and it's been a month since she gave me a new ""do"". I will not go through years of research or asking anyone else who does their hair. As far as I'm concerned, I've found the best salon and stylist in Houston---and I won't be gambling with anyone else. What a relief to not have to worry, ever again, about who is going to cut my hair.

I am new to the area and did a search to find a great place to go, Venus did not disappoint! I am always terrified of getting my haircut because of my very curly hair, but Jill did a great job and soothed me the entire time! She even showed me a better way to dry my hair and really took the time to work with me. The people are very friendly there and the shop is interesting. I have found my new place!

Where everybody knows your name, remembers your quirks, tells you the truth, gives you great service, makes you look hot, and the biggest perk? You get to experience the funky, interesting people that come in one after another after another to visit with Venus. It's the only place to find out everything happening in the Heights by just sitting in the chair for a while. And laugh your butt off.

Ignore the naysayers! I have been a customer at Venus Hair for several years, and it is BY FAR the best salon experience I have ever had (and I've tried a LOT!). After years of trying to get stylists to LISTEN to me, I finally found Susan, who gave me what I wanted, and not what she THOUGHT I wanted. I have a haircut that looks great, is easy to deal with, and that doesn't control my life. The shop atmosphere is FUN! You will not only get great hairstyling, but you will meet some very interesting folks. Venus Hair is definitely worth your while. I have sent several friends to Venus, who are now also satisfied return customers. Susan is a gifted stylist with years of experience. Trust me, She knows what she's doing!

Venus Hair is 'head and shoulders' above all the other hair salons I've been to in Houston. It is a landmark in the Heights area and one of the funkiest, friendliest places you will ever experience. I have been going to Susan Venus for almost 8 years now, and have never had a bad experience. Cut, color and attention to detail are always superb.

Susan Venus runs a first-rate salon. She's always there cutting and dying hair. She's personable, friendly -- you'll feel like family in a couple of visits. Her salon is the best thing going in the Heights, especially on 19th St!

When I got to Venus Hair location I immediately recognized the wonderfully creative ""hairst"" art car parked in front. Ok, I thought, they have a sense of humor, something that is so refreshing. The interior of the salon is ecclectic, decorated with hundreds of masks, jewels, posters, crusifixes, manaquins and more. I felt so comfortable there, last Wednesday, as I went to get my hair cut with Jill Hernandez. The atmosphere is so friendly, so ""neightborhood"". I loved hearing the old stories of how Venus Hair evolved, and meeting many who stopped by to say hello. I left with a smile on my face because of the great ""new do"" Jill created, and for the experience of being in a salon that reallly cares about it's customers, friends, and reputation. I would rate Venus Hair an A++.

Susan Venus (owner & stylist extraordinaire) is the best in Houston for Color & Cut. I went this week for my every 6 weeks color & trim - it looks GREAT. I took a friend with me for her 1st Venus Do.she is very happy with her cut and color.

I had another serendipitous encounter at Venus Hair that day. Jills (the new stylist) client and I determined we knew each other from way back...ends up we are both Native Houstonians, were in the same mid-term class at Grady elementary and were even in Bluebirds together. I love that about Houston; if youre a Native, youll always have a link to people you run into at a place like Venus.A GOOD DO AND FUN, TOO!

I love that about Houston; if youre a Native, youll always have a link to people you run into at a place like Venus.A GOOD DO AND FUN, TOO!

Pros: great hair cut, best hair coloring, relaxing & fun

.

I went in Saturday for a haircut. Mind you, I was going from below my shoulders to short....dicey for ANY woman. I talked to Venus about what I wanted, and let her at it. She gave me a MAGNIFICENT cut, and for HALF of what I've paid in other ""high-brow"" salons. Everyone is raving about my hair, and I LOVE it. I cannot say enough great stuff about the entire experience! Absolutely recommended--no matter how far you might have to drive.

Venus is wonderful. Susan made my hair look better than it ever has with a great cut, beautiful color and highlights. I would highly recommend this salon not only for it's great service but also for it's affordable value. I will definately go back.

People tell me often that I don't look my age. I believe it is because of the way Susan Venus colors my hair . Noone sees the grey! She has incredible talent and being in the shop is always fun and interesting.I highly recommend her to everyone.

No matter what you want this is the place. I took in pictures of 5 different cuts to Carol and she was able to get and idea of exactly what I wanted and deliver. This gang can set and tease your hair once a week, or keep your current style or give you something cutting edge.
The atmosphere is phenomenal. Its wonderful to go to ""the salon"" and gab. This beats the heck out of the therapist chair and I leave looking way better. No matter what you are looking for they meet you where you are and everyone is welcome.

Venus is a great hair colorist, cutter and she even likes to give perms! I don't get perms but a lot of people do and they are very happy customers. I hunted down a colorist using best of citysearch recommendations and found Venus. I've recommended a lot of people and everyone has been pleased! Also, her salon is very unique. It's Heights barber shop with a bohemian, art flair. Ms. Venus' art car ""Venus Hairse"" sits out front of the shop so you can't miss the place. Parking is easy in front of the shop and lots of parking around the back of the shop. If you want to look good and have fun, try Venus Hair!

I've been having my hair cut at Venus Hair for over fifteen years - most of my teenage and adult life! No matter what ""phase"" I've been in or what hair trauma I've been experiencing (most recent: the need for gray coverage!), the staff at Venus Hair has given me great cuts, great colors, and great styles at great costs. The value cannot be understated - many of my peers spend three times what I spend on color and cuts that look cheap and unstylish.

I now live out of state but return to Venus Hair 2-3 times a year for hair upkeep. It's also a great way to catch up on neighborhood gossip and catch up with the community - which is a big bonus for someone who has moved away.

All it takes is one trip to Venus Hair and you will be a convert for life!

Ever see the movie ""Steel Magnolias"" and wish your hairdresser ran a shop like that? Then give Venus Hair a try! This shop has a small town feel with uptown results. Susan Venus does a great cut and color! The staff is friendly, atmosphere easygoing and the conversation entertaining. On Saturday the music is of compliments of Huey Long. Its easy to find the shop among the others on 19th Street; look for the Venus Hairse!

Venus Hair is the funkiest, livliest, and most entertaining and unique salon in Houston. Their talent with hair is the main reason for going, but the social interaction and general side show is also a major draw.

I went to Venus Hair for the first time about 3 weeks ago. I explained to Venus what I wanted and she listened attentively. (I have thinning hair.) She made suggestions about the color and then proceeded to give me the best hair cut and color of my life!! I have received so many compliments on the cut and color. My husband just loves it! I highly recommend this shop to anyone. My search for the perfect haircut is over. They are open late two evenings a week and the shop is easy to get to. Thanks, Venus.

Unlike most other reviews, I know little about hair save that it grows on my head and requires me to get someone to cut it every so often. Beyond the pedigree and pleasant atmosphere, the staff can understand and tolerate someone as difficult as myself. They can also take that input and produce a result that gives positive feedback from those that see their work upon me.

I went back in to get the blonde turned into chocolate brown and auburn and it turned out beautiful. I'm always satisfied when I go in. Thank you so much for my beautiful hair Caddy ^_~
My Mother's been going for a while now, I told her she'll get great service and be talked through exactly what she wants, what's best for her hair and also get to check out the incredible amount of art in the studio.
Thanks again!

Carol is fabulous. My friend and I just moved to Houston (had to leave New Orleans because of Katrina) and found Venus Hair walking by. It looked enchanting so we called for appointments. Carol squeezed us in on a Thursday evening. My hair looks gorgeous! It's the perfect shade of red and the cut looks darling. The atmosphere is
great - very fun, retro-chic and comfortable. This is not one of those annoyingly pretentious places. Venus and Carol are warm and wonderful. Love it!

Carol is a true hair genius. She took the time to find out exactly what I wanted, let me know what would work and delivered a cut and color that far exceeded my expectations. On top of the excellent service, the salon is filled with interesting collections of art, stuff and people. You will never be stuck back in a corner under a dryer reading an old magazine at Venus Hair. All of the staff and the random visitors are friendly and keep you fully entertained.
If you are tired of the overpriced ""cookie cutter"" salons out there give Venus Hair a go, you won't be disappointed!

The place is amazing! I love art and I love New Orleans, and this place has lots of both. It is small, personal, and the staff is polite and out there! I love Ms. Venus's art car hearse, you can't miss it! Caddy gave me a fantastic haircut and wonderful conversation about options with my hair and highlights. I have seen her work on many of my friends and have always been impressed! I just LOVED this place! I will NEVER go to an overpriced pretentious and/or big chain soulless salon again! Also, it's right in a block of FABULOUS antique stores and a great deli NEXT DOOR! I had a simply wonderful afternoon, thank you Venus Hair and Caddy!
(PS - Call and book with Caddy RIGHT NOW! You will NOT be disappointed!)

Venus the ""Goddess of Hair""! What a wonderful place. The atmosphere is fun, friendly and cool. I used to fly to a salon out of town to have my hair done about ever 6 wks because the quality of color and cut I received. Then I found Venus Hair. I've not been anywhere else since. It's also a great place with wonderful people (Huey Long and Helen, to mention a couple) and lots of laughs, too. Need a good hair do and a mental health shot in the arm? Go to Venus Hair!

I've been getting my hair done in Pasadena for about 3 years.
I was recommended to Venus Hair by a friend specifically to Caddy. She IS a miracle worker, despite the sign in the shop that says, ""I'm just a beautician, not a miracle worker"". She took the time to talk with me and tell me what would work, what wouldn't work, she was patient and very straight forward. She knows what she's doing. I went in drab and faded, and came out a blonde beauty! Thanks Caddy!
Hahah I sound like an infomercial.
I will never get my hair done in Pasadena again. Venus is quite a drive for me, but so incredibly worth it.
Ms. Venus herself was there and greeted me as I came in. She was very friendly and I felt right at home.
Please go there....
