Best hair salon in west Houston area 10/13/2010

I have been a regular client at the Upper Hand in Royal Oaks for over 3 years and am there at least twice a month. They have a very friendly staff and excellent hairstylists. Shiva is my stylist and she is extremely talented with my ""fine"" hair texture and very good with color ideas. My husband is also a regular client of Shiva's and our daughter, who lives in San Diego, visits her when in town. Lisa is very good at waxing and eyebrow shaping, also. We feel at home there and highly recommend the salon. more

Best color, highlights and hair cut 10/7/2010

Jennifer Riding is the best! I'd let her do whatever she wants to my hair as she has an expert eye for color, highlights and cut! I wanted to go blonder and let me tell you I am complimented wherever I go on my hair. She knows her clients, listens to there needs and concerns and works with them to achieve the greatest results. So if you are looking for an awesome stylist see Jennifer. The other stylist at The Upper Hand at Royal Oaks are great as well so you will not be sorry going to this salon for your needs. more

Best Salon in Houston 9/29/2010

I had been looking for a long time to try and find that perfect place to get my hair done, and I have found it! I have been going to the Upper Hand Salon in Royal Oaks for over a year, and I have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxed, but with a beautifully sophisticated flair and the customer service is wonderful! I would also like to take time to recommend the stylist, Courtney. She is very attentive to what you ask her for, and she also takes the time and effort to go through styling options if you need them! The first time I went to see her was after a horrible highlights job that a previous salon had done, and she fixed it up beautifully! Each time I go in she tells me what colors and styles are in and what would look best. I was sold then, and I have not been disappointed once since. more

Bast Hair Salon in Houston 8/15/2010

To say I love the Upper Hand Salon in Royal Oaks would be an understatement. I have been going there for over a year. The customer service is amazing. Everyone in the salon is so friendly and helpful. When going to get your hair cut and colored there I highly recommend Nancy. She is a genius . She never has disappointed me. I have gotten my haircut and colored at some of the other top salons in Houston and no one has ever compared to her. When I fist went to see her I had a dull hair color and bad cut and my hair now looks totally different. I have never left there disappointed. more

This is the first time I have been to The Upper Hand, and I scheduled with Jennifer Ridings. She gave me EXACTLY what I wanted and how I described to her!

She will now be my new stylist!!!! Thank you so much! Pros: Shop is Clean, Employees are Friendly, Welcoming more
