fabulous 11/4/2009

Mia is a wonderful colorist, right on the money every time. does fantastic highlights, and the color is very natural. she will accomodate you just about anytime, even in the evening. vastly superior to anything else i have tried in fifteen years. Pros: best blond in town more

great place for color 11/4/2009

stupendous color, best in town i've tried. No orange overtones. Have been coloring my grey for 5 years now, no one compares. Mia is also a wonderful person and fun to talk to. Much much better than any large salon like visible changes. Pros: flexible appointments, affordable more

lacking consistency 11/1/2009

I've given this salon and stylist a couple of tries now. I agree with many reviewers that she?s friendly and personable. Considering some of the other places I?ve tried, this one isn?t bad. I can tell there is a lot going on with her business, because it took a while just to get my appointment scheduled and out of business messages when I was trying to get an appointment. Not sure what?s going on there, I?m just here for my hair. I am disappointed with everything this time, but I understand she has a lot going on. I guess I?m just use to the consistency that you might expect at a larger more established salon. I do hope everything gets better for them. I'm not sure if I?ll be back. I would like a hair appointment to be enjoyable, and less dramatic. Pros: friendly environment Cons: a little chaotic more

She's still here and still the best colorist in town!!! 10/29/2009

Mai is the best, she's still in business. If you're looking for someone who only does color, Mai is your girl! she's skilled, knowledgeable, very fast and affordable. I've been going to Mai since she was at Visible Changes, that's like 8 or 9 years ago. She was the best then and now still better then ever. She's very knowledgeable with color and will educate you on how to maintain and protect your hair and color. Oh ask her about Moroccan oil, it's like the best thing for your hair. And yes her color is very natural looking, that's what got me hooked and keep going back. She's really good with fixing other hairstylists mistakes, I've seen her work her magic on other people when she would squeeze me in between her clients. She's very accommodating and always on time. And now I got my husband to go to Mai to color his hair, took 10yrs off him, we're happy campers. Thanks Mai and keep doing what you do best! She's still in business so go see for yourself. Pros: best color, affordable, friendly more

Mia is Back and She's Great!!! 10/28/2009

Sure to become a Houston institution, Mia's Cou'leur is the best in town--- without any doubt. more

fantastic color 10/27/2009

Was referred by friend for color only. Very happy with results, she gives a wonderful natural color, no one knows it's colored. Uses gentle products. Fits you in anytime. Very affordable. Nice quiet environment. Clean. I dont realize why the last review was so negative, it sounds a personal or vindictive issue to me. My experience was entirely the opposite. Pros: fits you in anytime more

not worth the hassle 10/9/2009

I'm been searching for a color stylist in Houston for some time now and I came across Couleur not too long ago. After reading the reviews, I thought it might be worth a shot. I'm frankly a little disappointed. The color was avg. The stylist was not communicative enough at least I didn't get the feeling that she completely understood what I wanted, and that made the entire process of sitting in a chair not knowing the outcome 1 hour very unnerving. Thank god the results were not as bad as I imaged in my head. It's not exactly what I wanted, but I knew that already sitting there this whole time. It's not bad, but not as good as everyone has raved about this stylist. My biggest complaint is that it is a one person show, a very small closet salon, and I really think it is too much for one person to handle all by themselves. She has to answer the phones, talk to people in the hallway, all the while, I'm wondering if she's loosing focus on my hair. She also works like a fast food rest. and I'm wondering if there is really any attention to detail. I'm sure that I'll keep looking, the location is a bit further than I'd like to drive unless you're already on the west side of town, and I'm sure something better can be found locally to me. Pros: not sure Cons: dis-organized one person show more

Closed 10/8/2009

Mai was amazing. I don't know why she closed but I know she will be missed. I hope she is well. Pros: Mai was a real pro. I'm sorry she's closed Couleur. Cons: No Cons. more

What a job! 3/17/2009

I moved to Houston from out of state 2.5 years ago. I cannot tell you how frustrated I've been trying to find a hairstylist to actually care enough to listen to what I know about my hair, and what I WANT. Let me tell you, I've been through 5 different stylists in that amount of time. I've had my hair turned pink, fried to mush, turned gothic black, turned strawberry shortcake red, and turn out just plain blah. I've gone to stylists of every type, and every price point. Believe me, I wish I was exaggerating, but I'm not. I've taken in pictures, gone back repeatedly and have NOT found anyone who even came close to doing a good job on my hair. Until now! I can't tell you how glad I am that I found Mia. (I just had my hair done tonight). Mia took the time to listen and UNDERSTAND before she just started throwing color in my hair and going with her own interpretation of what my hair should look like. She made suggestions that enhanced my ideas and incorporated everything I wanted. After such a long search I cannot tell you what a relief that is..(trust me, a girl's hair is a very delicate matter!) I am admittedly ""determined"" in what I want my hair to look like..and know just enough about hair to make someone crazy. So, I can be hard to please. UNLESS YOU TAKE THE TIME TO LISTEN! and Mia DOES! As for the issue of Mia not ""specializing"" in cuts (although she happily trimmed mine tonight)...I personally don't think its a big deal. I'd rather have a stylist who TRULY specializes in color, and gets it right. Because Mia has dedicated her time to really studying color, she can deliver results the first time. Not only that, she was able to achieve the color I wanted AND make my hair look healthier than it has in years. She really cares about your hair. I'd suggest instead of complaining about what you don't like, communicate with Mia. I can't believe that she would not be willing to do whatever it takes to make you happy. If you want more personalized attention (which I can understand), then let her know, and give her the chance to meet your needs, instead hoping she will read your mind. As you can tell, I can't thank her enough! Great job Mia. (BTW, I am blonde with dark brown and red hilights. The blonde was the best I've had since moving to Houston). Pros: One on One attention, takes time to understand, reasonable Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

Great Blonde! 10/14/2008

After an almost 2 year search to find someone close to home, I have found Mia! She is brilliant with blondes & corrective color. Neat thing-- she uses a steamer instead of a dryer for you to sit under & my hair feels BETTER even though I went many shades blonder:) I would reccommend her services to anyone-- especially if you're a blonde.... Thanks, Mia! Pros: Color, Blondes, Corrective, Evening & weekend appointments more

Great color! 9/18/2008

I found Cou'leur on Citysearch and decided to give her a try. Mia really listens to what you want and my formerly brassy blonde hair is natural looking and healthier. I have been back twice and will be calling today for my third color appointment. I have found someone that is good with blonde and listens. more

A Good Place for Good Color 8/3/2008

I used to go to a salon in Rice Village, but left after I was unable to find a routine stylist (the salon had extremely fast turnover). I heard about Cou Leur through City Search, but was reluctant to try it based on somewhat conflicting reviews. I went in for a color & cut, but ended up having only color because I was informed that cutting is not in her area of expertise. For those that are unfamiliar, this is a salon run by one person - who is EXTREMELY talented with coloring hair - but prefers to not cut it. Though originally feeling inconvenienced, I kept the appointment and could not be happier with the results. My hair looks healthy and shiny...and NATURAL now...which is more than I can say for the 5 or so colorists prior. I recommend this for anyone looking for a nice update - be it for a natural hide-gray change, or even something dramatic. I will definitely return. Pros: Online Discount for 1st Timers, Parking, One-on-One Salon Cons: No Cuts (Just Color) more

Going downhill... 6/13/2008

I have been a client of Mia's for a couple years now, but I think I will have to start looking elsewhere. My last 3 or 4 trips have been a huge disappointment (they are truly TRIPS for me because so far away from home)! The previous review is right about her being a fan of ""squeezing you in"" now which is inconvenient for all clients. My appointments used to last an hour, and the last three have lasted more than 2 hours because she will work on 2 and 3 clients at the same time (usually by herself!)...no more personalized attention! Very disappointing especially for a long-time client. And what's with not cutting hair all of the sudden? She used to cut mine, but apparently that's not as profitable for her anymore...I dunno? She is good at the color so if you have an emergency or don't mind spending 2-3 hours of your day at the salon, go for it. Personally, I think a good hairstylist can provide quality AND service and she is lacking in the service department. Good color, but no longer worth the drive or the money..I will be finding another stylist. Pros: Good color Cons: Poor service, slow, won't cut anymore, no personalized attention more

Love my color! 2/22/2008

I went to Mia for a cut and color, but she said cuts weren't her specialty. She gave me great color. It's actually the blonde I didn't think I could get away with! After a few days, it's mellowed out to a beautiful honey. She was pretty fast considering my length. She did re-schedule a cut with her coworker, so I had to come back the next day. But I love the results! Cut and color! I recommend them both. The only reason why I wouldn't give it 5 stars is because when I called to make the appointment, she didn't tell me to schedule a cut with the stylist too (who only comes in on Thurs-Sat currently) so I had to make 2 trips when she told me she didn't prefer to cut it when I got it colored. Other than that, she's great and super friendly!! Pros: Great color, friendly atmosphere Cons: Doesn't prefer to cut more

Best Highlights Ever!! 6/7/2007

I have been going to Mia now for about four months, and I am so Happy that I found her!! She does the best job on my hair color. I always get the most perfect, natural looking highlights. She is also very consistent. My hair looks the exact same color every time and no one else has been able to do that for me before. It always seemed like my hair would just get lighter and lighter with other colorists. If you are looking for the BEST, then Mia is your girl!! And even better than her talent is her price. Give her a try. You will not be sorry. Pros: best highlights, cost, comfortable atmosphere more

Good color; don't bother if you also want your hair cut 5/26/2007

Mia is very fast and does a good job with color. She will also do what you want her to do. The big problem is that she doesn't like to cut hair, so here are some ways she deals with that: Pros: very fast; good color Cons: she won't cut your hair if she can help it more

Highly recommended! 4/16/2007

I have had the worst experience with getting my hair highlighted. I've always wanted that Jennifer Anistan golden blonde and no matter how many pictures I've brought into the salon, they never get it close. They always go way too blonde, make it ASHY (the worst), beige or stripey. I usually go home upset, disappointed and in need of a color correction right away. It has been a very frustrating experience but I am so glad I found Mia! Pros: Affordability, service, atmosphere, skill level Cons: Far from where I live (Spring) more

Highly Professional & Beautiful Results! 2/17/2007

I just got back from my appt with Mia. I found Mia on citysearch and after reading many rave reviews I decided to make an appointment. My hair is jet black with some brown color and blond highlights, after going to a previous colorist, she made it worse by making it too brassy and orange so I asked Mia what would she recommend for my hair. She toned down the brassyness and gave me gorgeous highlights without further damaging my hair. She was fast and efficient yet paid attention to detail. Pros: Up with the trends and best hair color products Cons: Absolutely none! more

A rare find! 11/2/2006

Mia did a great job with my color ""fix-up""! She was very sweet, professional, and prices were definitely reasonable. I had a bad hair experience, and she made me happy to look in the mirror again, ha! My hair felt healthy after all the work too, not dry and damaged. To be talented and affordable is a rare find, Mia's a steal! Pros: Friendly, talented and experienced, reasonably priced Cons: A bit of a drive from downtown, but worth it! more

Great Color! 9/27/2006

Mia does a great job with color. She always does my hair exactly the way I want and the color stays that way. Unlike a lot of beauty professionals, if you show her a picture, she really will make your hair look that way. I'm really glad to have found her. more
