Mai 5/24/2011

Hi, I'm a client of Mai's at TOC salon and I called in but their phone is disconnected. But I have Mai's phone number and I found out that she is no longer there. So if you are looking for her she can be reached at 713-240-6669. She is great and would recommend her to everybody. more

Great experience 1/26/2011

I don't normally write reviews, but I feel that Mai does such a wonderful job on my hair that her work should be recognized. First of all, she is very talented at cutting and coloring hair. Even if I don't fix my hair it still looks good...that's when you know you have a good cut. :) Aside from that, the salon iteself is beautiful and comfortable. She's is a delight to chat with and will make your experience there enjoyable. The price is very reasonable. I would highly recommend coming here. more

GREAT, GREAT Permenant Makeup 3/22/2010

Mai was absolutely fantastic. Pros: Great service, great work more

A hidden treasure 3/19/2010

I went in TOC wanting to get my eyebrows done. Mai was very kind and made time in her busy schedule for me, even though I was a walk-in. She was very professional and did a wonderful job on my eyebrows. Her salon is beautiful and clean. It is hidden gem, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. more

Great Haircut & Color 1/27/2010

I am new in houston. Tried TOC because it was across the street from where I live. I found a rare treasure in Mai. She listened on what I wanted on my haircut. Recommended different cut that really soften my face. Love it. Came back the week after for highlight & wanted to change my usual color. Mai recommended a color that I would never have guessed would work well with my hair. Feeling adventeruous, I followed her advice and I LOVE the color that she chose. During my coloring session, she gave me tips also on softening my make-up application. Will come back for more. Pros: Great cut, style & color choice, pleasant environment more

I've Found My New Salon! 11/21/2009

I really don't know what SecretShopper01 is commenting on below. Lily also gave me a full set of solar nails. She was very friendly, did an excellent job, and her work area and all tools used were super clean. The entire salon was spotless and very relaxing. I met and talked with the owner as well, who was equally friendly and recommended budget-friendly options over the more costly services offered. I have also been to many spas and salons in Houston and I will keep going back to this one! Pros: super solar nails, friendly staff, plus so much more Cons: not enough time to get more services more

Toc is an Awesome Place! 11/5/2009

Mai is brilliant! I simply loved what she did for my wedding. Everybody who showed up at my wedding said that I look unrecognizable...which is the greatest goal achieved. I love the way Mai did my make-up and hair! more

Go get yourself a pedicure, you know you want to. 8/18/2009

I simply love this place. At first I came over because it was right across the street from my apartment, but now, even though I have moved out to Missouri City, I make the trip to get my manicures and pedicures from Lily. She gives the best leg massages ever. I appreciate the attention they pay towards hygiene; they use stainless steel sinks and disinfect their equipment diligently, also making sure you see that the equipment they will be using has just been taken out of the heater. I also adore the ambiance/decor. It is attractive and relaxing, putting me in a good mood. They do quality work there, and the prices are great. Pros: Lily and Mai more

Horrific Experience 8/18/2009

The day I went into Toc Salon, I was hopeful of a unique and delightful experience. What I recieved was no less than a horrialble tramatic experience. As I sat down to get solar nails by Lily , I watched in horror as she attempted to use unclean tools. I tried to express my uncertainty of the tools cleanliness and when I did, I was precieved as rude and was certainly treated differently. Besides the outrageous prices (for service that could be obained in a much higher class salon), Toc was a most uncomfortable experience. It was alot of fancy decor with a rude and unprofessional staff. I have been to many spas and salons in Houston and for the price-this was the most unsatisfying experience. When a salon stops short of protocol and than deny ownership for their mistakes it is not one worth spending hard earned money. There are plenty salons and spas in Houston that ARE worth your time and money-but certainly not this spa!! Pros: Aesthetics Cons: Unproffesional, lack of good management more

NO LONGER ASSOCIATED 8/16/2009

Due to horrible management and lack of professionalism SBW and Jennifer Buzzaird (formerly seen in the commercial above) will no longer be offering services at this location. Please disregard any reviews seen below as to her services, legal action is in the works for defamation of character. Pros: Jennifer is no longer associated Cons: You can no longer see Jennifer B the LMT here more

Great Salon and Professional Staff 8/11/2009

I went to the same hairdresser, in the Galleria area, for more than 25 years. Because of time and traffic issues I no longer wanted to drive from the West side of Houston (Eldridge & Parkway Plaza) to the Galleria for my hair and nail appointments so it was time for a change. I asked a friend if she could suggest a good hairdresser and nail technician closer to my home. She suggested Mai & Lily at TOC. It's been almost two years since I made the change to TOC...Mai for my haircuts and Lily for my solar nails and pedicures. I am 100% satisfied with everything about TOC. Mai gives me the best haircuts ever. Lily's solar nails and pedicures are done to perfection. Mai and Lily are very professional yet also friendly and fun to visit with. The staff goes above and beyond to make the clients feel welcome! I've suggested TOC to two of my friends. They are both now also loyal and satisfied customers of TOC after having been longtime clients at their previous salons. TOC manages to provide the professionalism you expect in a nice salon combined with a welcoming and caring attitude in a beautiful and relaxing environment. Since I get my nails and hair done at TOC, I'm there for an appointment at least three times a month and have never witnessed any staff member behaving in a manner such as the manner described by the ONE negative review about TOC. There is obviously something vindictive behind that review from what may be a former employee! I have never heard anything negative from any of TOC's clients! I highly recommend you give TOC a try...you will not be disappointed! On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best...I rate TOC a 10! Pros: Fantastic Staff - Relaxing Environment Cons: THERE ARE NO CONS! more

OUTSTANDING! 7/31/2009

I have been going to TOC salon for almost 2 years. I was originally attracted to the look of the salon- gorgeous. I was living right across the street, so it was easy to just pop over for a haircut. After one trip, I was hooked. About a year ago, I moved downtown, but I still make the trip to see Mai- I wouldn't dream of going to anyone else. Pros: Mai works miracles Cons: none! more

MR.NASSER 7/28/2009

I CANT SPEAK FOR THE WORK OF THE OTHER STYLISTS BUT MY EXPERIENCE AT SALON TOC WITH NASSER HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT OUTSTANDING.IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOUR HAIR IS VERY SHORT, OR VERY LONG HIS WORK IS EYE-CATCHING, NO MATTER WHAT THE LENGTH OR STYLE. HIS EXPERTISE AND HIS ATTENTION TO DETAIL MAKE HIS HAIR SALON ONE OF THE HOT SPOTS IN THE SALON INDUSTRY. HIS WORK IS WORLD -CLASS FROM THE MOMENT OF YOUR ARRIVAL TO THE MOMENT OF YOUR DEPARTURE YOU FEEL THAT YOU HAVE BEEN NOT ONLY TAKEN CARE OF BUT YOU FEEL REALXED KNOWING YOU ARE ON GOOD HANDS. HIS LIGHT HAND MAKES IT A VERY ENJOYABLE AND YOU WALK OUT FEELING SATISFIED AND VERY HAPPY AND LOOKING GREAT. HIS YEARS OF EXPERIENCE SHOW WITH EVERY HAIRCUT, BLOW-DRY AND HAIR COLOR. SO FOR ME I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO EVERY LADY IN THE WORLD AND WISH I COULD JUST LET EVERY WOMEN EXPERIENCE ONE HAIRCUT WITH HIM, BECAUSE I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THEY WILL RETURN. HIS GOAL IN MY OPINION IS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION THAT WILL REFLECT HIS CONCEPTS AND VALUES OF THE HAIR INDUSTRY. SO THEREFORE I BELIEVE THAT SOMEONE WITH SUCH LUXURIOUS STYLE SHOULD NOT GO UNRECOGNIZED. Pros: WHY GO ANYWHERE ELSE... more

An unrushed experience 7/27/2009

My family and I just moved to the neighborhood, and I wasn't in the mood to drive to the other side of town to see my regular stylist. I decided to stop in at TOC and see if I could just get a quick trim. The atmosphere in TOC is a quiet and calm ambience. Not like other hig end salons where it always seems so hectic and pretentious. The stylist who worked with me was a nice gent named Nasser. Since I have long hair, below my waist, I'm very particular in who styles my hair. But Nasser listened to what I wanted, suggested a few ideas of his own without being pushy or arrogant, and gave me an incredible scalp massage while shampooing my hair. When he finished, I was very delighted with the outcome. I also found out that he does children's cuts, so I'm planning on bringing my son there for his next hair cut, since his Dad just seems to butcher it! LOL Pros: relaxed and easy going atmosphere more

WOW! 7/24/2009

I went in today for a quick pick-me-up. I usually go find a salon for a mani-pedi, but today I felt like getting my hair trimmed. I pass by TOC everyday and today decided to see what they were all about. Nasser had time to do my hair and I had read about him on citysearch so I was happy to sit in his chair. The best part was the wash! I mean I have never had a shampoo feel so good. He spent so much time massaging my neck and scalp that I thought I had gone in for a massage not a trim. The trim, too, was great. I wasn't looking for a new stylist but I now have one! Pros: The whole Salon more

For the Best Razor Cut go see Nasser 7/12/2009

Nasser has been my stylist for quite sometime now and I don't even want to think about going to see anyone else. He is excellent all around. First he always starts with a consulation, if you want something that won't go with your face he will be 100% honest with you, and try to work with your idea but make it fit your face. Color, well lets just say since Nasser has been doing my color I have been asked almost everyday what I do to get my hair so shiny. My reply, ""I only let a great colorist do my highlights."" And cut, well I did title this ""Best Razor Cut,"" so let me explain. I wanted the stacked bob that is so popular right now and didn't know if my very thick hair would look good styled this particular way. So I consulted with Nasser and he said my hair would do very well with this cut if done with a razor. So I sat down and when I got up I felt like I was ready for my cover shoot! The cut was perfect! Since then I have gotten my hair shaped up about every 5 weeks or so. Over all Nasser is the one to call. Pros: Best Razor Cut In HOUSTON Cons: None! more

Beautiful Wedding Make-Up and Hairstyles 6/30/2009

Mai did a wonderful job with all of our hair and make-up. The airbrush make-up lasts alot longer than traditional make-up, and looks great! Thanks Mai! I went back to get my eyelashed permed and tinted, and they look great! No more curling my eyelases or using mascara for 3 months! :) Pros: Relaxing spa more

Expert Service 6/16/2009

Excellent service, friendly &, most importantly knowledgeable staff. I go in & ask for their recommendation & always walk out feeling like a million bucks! Pros: Friendly Service, Level of Knowledge, Passionate, Skilled Cons: Small Salon, so if you just walk in, you may not get seen, more

HIghly Recommended 4/17/2009

Whether you prefer Therapeutic or Relaxing massages, Jennifer at TOC is it! My low back pain and sporadic muscles spasms are distant memories for days after receiveing a massage from Jennifer. I would highly recommend trying TOC if you are currently considering massage as part of you personal health and wellness routine. Pros: Experienced Massage Therapist more

Best Bridal Hair & Makeup! Loved loved loved it! :) 3/23/2009

I came to Mai, the stylist who did my hair and makeup from a friend's recommendation. It was purely through word-of-mouth that I found her, thus I didn't even read about all these positive reviews about her and her salon. Since I live in Austin, my interaction with Mai has only been via the phone, so it was pleasant to see that she was actually very talented and professional in person when I arrived at her salon for my hair and makeup session. Mai is really good at what she does. She gave me the hair-do that was even BETTER than the pictures I brought in to show her, and my makeup was flawless, I looked very natural, best of all her makeup was very light that I didn't feel cakey or made up at all. I love getting facials and pedicures so needless to say after this wonderful experience I will definitely come back more often to get other services from this salon. Highly recommended! :) Pros: Very natural makeup, but made me glow! more
