Really! - Not an Upscale Salon

I initially visited the Salon for the first time because of a bad haircut somewhere else. I thought I needed to spend more money and go to an upscale salon. I was wrong. The first time I went there the stylist suggested I let my hair grow out for a while because the cut was so bad. I now went for my second visit and boy am I REALLY disappointed. My hair is so uneven; long pieces here and there very short pieces that are sticking straight up. I even went back the next day to see if she could fix it. She stated that this is what happens when you texturize hair. Oh well, so much for letting it grow out. I will now try to find someone else to fix this REALLY bad haircut. The salon itself is really nice, but all I want is a good haircut.

Outstanding Service and Style!!!

I recently visited Alan Murphy Salon for the first time after a referral from a friend. The salon was extremly clean and elegantly decorated. I was most happy with my new stylist Courtney. I told her exatly what i was looking for and she went to work. She even made a few suggestions that would make my idea even better. The final look was flawless. The techniques she used were very impressive. I have never walked out of a salon and felt like they achevied exatcly what i was looking for untill visiting Alan Murphy Salon.

WORST SALON EVER

I had to worst expereance from the moment I walked in the door , I was ignored by staff, After 30 minutes had passed I asked the receptionist if thre was a problem, she rolled her eyes at me, overall bery unprofessiol. When I finally got to see a stylist it wasnt whom I had booked with I left the salon in tears. I asked for blonde highlights in my natural strawberry blonde hair, the stylist then told me that she ""didn't think it would look good with my skin tone) But I Told the stylist EXACLY what i wanted done. Then end result is horrible, I did not get blonde highlights, My hair is now a deep brown....this salon RUINED my hair, there is NO way to go from strawberry blonde to chocalte brown and then back t strawberry blonde!!! I cry evertime I look in the mirror. This has got to be the worst cut and color ive ever had and had to pay over 300 bucks while in tears in front of the entire salon stylist and clients, not was I embarrassed by the staff but on a daily basis now as well, due to Alan Murphys Salon.. DO NOT GO TO ALAN MURPHY for haair services, unless you want your locks ruined.

HORRIBLE!!!

I went to have my hair trimmed...the girl who cut it didn't know how to cut hair so I've got uneven sides and now will have to cut off my hair to get it even...what should have been 1/2 an inch off will now probably end up being close to 5 inches off. This is not my first visit, but will DEFINITELY be my last...avoid this place like the plague!!!

Great experience, beautiful style, well worth the price!

I have gone to Alan Murphy since the beginning of 2009 and I great so many comments from people I know and don't know about how pretty my color and style is. I have lots of gray and looked very straggled. Leigh Moore and Andrea Thue have given me beautiful blonde that blends as my hair grows and a layered style that allows me flexibility in my styles. I look younger and rested - without surgery!

Best Salon I Have EVER Been To

I have been going to Alan Murphy Salon for a little over a year now, after being a loyal customer to another salon for 8 years - and it has been the best change ever! My hair has never looked better. Yvette (hairstylist) and Amber (colorist) and true artists. My color and cut are always perfect and I get compliments everywhere I go. I find the entire staff to be very friendly and outgoing, and the salon itself is simply gorgeous. I'll never go anywhere else!

HIGH PRICES...

When I go to a Salon, most of all I want a good haircut and color. The tea and pampering is nice, but not what I came for.
The prices are RIDCULOUSLY HIGH. The haircut nothing special, the color nothing special. I have been to Salons like this.....beautiful surroundings.....pampering.....very high prices.......and mediocre services.

Great Colorist !!

Leigh Moore , is a great up and coming colorist who specializes in corective color. I had been to a post oak salon very well known and left with yellow roots and white ends with every color in the middle. Leigh fixed my color and i will never leave her !!

Great Service and Style

The Alan Murphy salon has seen quite a bit of changes yes, but all for the better if you ask me. They are actually moving locations in January 08 to Louetta and 249 which is a great location!!! The service and atmosphere are something that you normally see in high end salons therefore, the prices are comparable to such establishments. If you want a quick cut from someone who is paid $7 an hour and specializes in kids and mens cuts, this is not the place for you. However, if you want the look and feel of a classy salon that prides itself on customer service and excellence then it is definitley for you. Keep in mind the price you pay isn't just for the product or end result rather it's the environment that is created by Alan and his staff.

Pricey

I have a customer of Alan Murphy for years. I have seen complete change in staff with several employees quitting all at one time. Recently they have regrouped and new faces have been seen. Their prices continue to climb. Getting color and style used to be all included. Now since last fall of 2005, its a higher price. You must pay for style on top of paying for color. Explanation for the Alan Murphy salon, other salons have been contacted and they are charging, so now Alan Murphy has followed the lead.
I find customer loyalty from this salon is not there. They really DO NOT care what the customers wants, its what the owner wants which is more money.
The salon is good but trust me its not that great. I recently had my hair washed and was left with water dripping down my back for the girl who washed it splashed it down my back.
I waited for her to come back with a dryer towel but she left me sitting. With anger I approached an employee and told her of what had happened and she quickly gave me several towels. My color at times disappointments me even when I tell the colorist the color for some reason does not look as what I am expecting. The prices are well over $100.00 for cut and color. I think telling Alan Murphy that customers will not put up with this type of prices and performance perhaps just perhaps will awaken him from his glass house.!
