Megan is AWESOME! Best hair stylist ever! She's super at figuring out what you want and making it happen, or giving you options if you're looking for something. She really wants you to have amazing hair that will make you happy, so she takes the time to figure you out. It is really nice and refreshing!
As an educator, she has learned to teach others about hair, hair color, chemistry, etc. It is reassuring that she knows her stuff about hair, how the different colors will blend and set with my hair color.
Regardless, if you want a new color or just a fresh cut Megan is the person to see!! I always have a blast sitting in her chair, then walk out looking gorgeous! Highly recommended!!!

MELISSA IS AMAZING!!! I can't sing her praises enough, seriously. I have been to enough salons that have not only butchered my hair but where I had to ask the hairstylist questions because I was bored out of my mind she was so silent, but then was charged an outrageous price.
I had very long hair and was so afraid of cutting my hair short. She must have sensed my anxiety and told me to look at hair colors while she was cutting and it helped! I couldn't believe how perfect my hair matched my skin and how natural it looked. I never could have imagined my hair would look right in blonde highlights (I'm Asian). I thought blonde highlights would make me look trashy, but she actually made my hair look chic and professional at the same time.
Not only that, it was such a joy to be around her. She was funny and energetic....had a great personality. This was the first time I have ever enjoyed my time at a salon and my loved my hair. My sisters saw a picture and love my hair.

I've been going to Vertigo for years having a friend tell me about Erica and her Vertigo salon. She is beyond any other stylist ... best hair cuts I've ever had best highlights and color I've ever had. And they are fast where used to sit in the salon for hours. My last hair cut was truly amazing. I told Erice that I wanted to let my hair grow and when she was done with the cut, it actually looked longer than when I went in there. Now who else can do that? Over the years, I cannot count how many people have complimented my hair.

Melissa is the hair stylist to ask for at Vertigo. We LOVE her and the fantastic work she's done. I came in not really knowing what I wanted other than to ""clean up"" what I had and add a little volume. I told her to do what she thought would look good as I immediately had faith in her skills As she cut she explained what she was doing and the results it would have - and she was right on. She gave me choices of how to style my hair afterwards and didn't push any product on me but did explain what she used and I chose to buy some because I liked the results it had on my hair. Then she did my daughter's haircut (very short) from a picture she brought in, and my daughter loved it! It was so cute and stylish. The following week my daughter went back to have her hair bleached out and purple color applied. Melissa took the time to do it right (and my daughter has dark, dark brown hair) and even went to get more color for us because we didn't bring enough (we chose to bring our own, which was an option). Melissa mixed the two colors, both shades of purple and the result was amazing! It looked as though my daughter had purple hair with deep purple highlights and lowlights. Melissa does fabulous work and I will continue going there only because of her. I will not change to another stylist unless we move to another city, and even then it would depend on how far away it was. Satisfied doesn't even begin to describe our experience.
Many other stylists have tweaked and cut my hair the way they want to, not even paying attention to my hair's texture and body. Melissa definitely has skill, experience and is very friendly and fun to talk to during the appointment. I find myself looking forward to my next appointment gladly. Plus the price was fair - you can't for more than that. :)
Absolutely love, love, love Melissa Anderson @ Vertigo Hair Concepts!!!!! I've been going to her for about a year now and will NOT ever change. She cares enough to take the time to understand what you are looking for, because half the time I have no idea what I want done and she always helps me figure it out and I am always satisfied with what she does. I truly trust her with my locks...
I have gone to others and they cut your hair the way they want it. Melissa listens and is very knowledgable in everything that she does. She also cuts my partners hair and it always turns out just the way we want it. If you're ever looking for a great stylist, go to Melissa...she will NOT disappoint!!!! I PROMISE!!!
By far this place has the best stylist. I always set up appointments ONLY with Melissa. Shes, by far hands down, really great at what she does and I would choose no other stylist but her. She does everything and she does it professionally. Treatments such as Japanese thermal hair straightening, haircuts, thinning out hair, shaping, highlights, hair color, you name it! On top of that, if you don't know how to or explain what you want, she'l give you her suggestions, which are always always great, like when I sometimes don't exactly know how to explain it, and they always turn out perfect. You can't go wrong at all with her. Melissa is by FAR the best hair stylist to WALK THIS EARTH!!!!! No joke!! Simply said, you will be satisfied every time with your hair needs.
Thanx Melissa!! :D

I am not exagerating when I say that I haven't been to the same salon twice... It seems that for the past couple of years, every haircut that I have had has been a complete mess.
I have shoulder length hair and don't usually cut it above chin level. I have been going through a viscious cycle of getting a haircut and just waiting for it to grow long enought to get another haircut that may somehow fix the previous one.
No more crying over bad haircuts...I decided to do my research and look for a salon with some good reviews. I figured a salon that has so many excellent reviews could be the answer.
I made an appointment with Liz last Friday...she is simply HEAVEN SENT! She truly worked a miracle with my hair! My hair is thin as it is and having just had a baby, I have embarrasing hair loss on the top. I decided to get red highlights to give it some definition and a haircut that I would hope would give my hair some volume. I showed Liz a picture of what I wanted and she not only created the same hair cut, she took the time to show me how to create the hairstyle at home.
I was nervous about the highlights since I never had them done before, but with Liz walking me through every step I felt at ease.
She works fast with the scissors, but somehow doesn't seem to make you feel like she is rushing. She has truly perfected her craft in her 20 years of experience! She says that it all has to do with the tools, but I say it all has to do with the love and passion she has to her profession.
I wanted so badly to write a review as soon as I came home Friday night, but one look at my hair from my husband.....well let's just say that I had a great weekend!
For the first time ever, I will be going to the same salon again and again and again....

I've been getting my hair cut by Melanie for a few months now. I've always gotten cuts from stylists at independent salons. The price has consistently been in the $40-$50 range. I have to admit that I've never had a better haircut. Not only does she do a great job, but she has the talent to adjust the cut based on factors particular to your own hair. What you end up with is a style that fits your head and grows out looking great. I wouldn't get my hair cut by anyone else!

Joel did an amazing job with my hair. I walked in with no idea of what I wanted to do, and after talking to me for about 10 minutes he came up with a hairstyle that worked for me. I came in with frizzy limp hair and walked out with a hairstyle I can actually recreate myself that moves and looks great. Thanks Joel!!!!

I walked in not really knowing what to expect, but what I received was a quality haircut with an outstanding stylist. Joel hooked me in with a quick consultation and was ready to help me shed my tangled locks for a sexy sleek shorter haircut. He was wonderful and I highly recommend him. I will see him again for my next trim or color! Also, the pricing was reasonable too!

Not only are the stylists friendly and the atmosphere relaxed and hip, they really know how to cut/color and style your hair! The place looks great and the waiting area is comfortable. Plenty of up to date reading material and hairstyle guides for those that need some direction. Erica always offers something cold to drink and they always have cold beers for their clients! At Vertigo, you feel at home and these are the reasons to visit. The reason to come back? The way your hair looks when you leave! Each stylist really cares about the way you look as much as you do. (Your hair does represent them in a way.) Erica has been cutting and coloring my hair for at least 5 years and I am so confident in her and any stylist she would choose to work with that I can just sit down and say ""do anything! be creative."" For first-timers, you can sit down with a stylist and discuss in detail the look you have in mind. They will give you their honest opinions on what look will work best for you. You should try Vertigo. You will not be disappointed.

I had a disaster of an ordeal with the lying cheating person who was supposed to do my extentions for my 10 year anniversay marriage renewel in Jamaica She basically left me high and dry and took my money. So I called around to try and find a salon that could get me in.. in a timely fashion. When I called Vertigo I spoke with Erica and she was a heaven sent. She was understanding to what needed to be done and went above and beyond to make sure that I was perfect for before I left for Jamaica. And she even offered to come in on a day they were closed to assist me. It all turned out so wonderfully. She will tell you the truth flat out...and she will listen to and deliver what you want. I will continue to travel to her location because I love her work, and she rocks also!!!

Vertigo Hair is by far the best Salon I have ever been to. For about 5 years I would get my hair done somewhere else and then switch everytime to somewhere different because I would never be satisfied with the turnout. I have long blonde hair that I did not think should be difficult to work with but it was for every salon until I went to Melanie at Vertigo Hair. I have been going for about a year now and would never go anywhere else. She has always done exactly what I wanted and I would trust her opinion about my own hair, which is hard to do with many stylists. The Salon takes great care of you, the staff is all very friendly and none of the stylists rush through your appointment. Your hair is just as important to them as it is to you! I would HIGHLY reccommend Vertigo Hair to everyone!

I've been coming to this salon for about a year and it's the best I've ever encountered! All the people are friendly and they have so much knowledge on hair it's unbelievable! The salon also looks very welcoming in a unique way! I especially like all the paintings and pictures on the walls and what's cool is that they change because you can buy them right off the wall!
Anyway, every time I come in my stylist, Melanie, asks me what I would like to be done to my hair and if I don't have any specifications she comes up with a style i might like. And I always love it! I've never had a miss with Vertigo Hair Concepts ever! :)

My husband and I have been going to Vertigo for about 6 months now. All I can say is that it's the best salon in Houston. The location is great and the environment is very relaxing. Melanie is not only friendly, she always took the time to talk to us about the styles we want and made sure that we love our new hair cut each time. I highly recommend anyone out there to give Melanie a call and schedule your next appointment!!! You won't be disappointed!

Being so new to Houston, I had to scramble to get all my services lined up. My first dentist gouged my gums. Car insurance was a rip off. Haircut – that was another story. At Vertigo I was greeted at the door and handed a beer – my salonist, Deah took control and made quick, easy work with my mop and left me feeling pretty good about myself. The shampoo and scalp massage was pretty great, too. Deah has panache and flair, a quick wit and a great vision for what looks good. The folks at Vertigo are relaxed and fun which makes for a good atmosphere to get trimmed up. It’s an easy recommendation – go to Vertigo, ask for Deah and come out looking sharp.

The hair stylists at Vertigo are some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of working with. I was organizing a benefit fashion show for a local charity and not only did I love how Deah fixed my hair for the show, she and a coworker James came to the show and helped backstage showing young student hair stylists and designers how to fix their models hair out of the kindness of their hearts! This was the first time we had been able to find a hair salon to come and help our kids backstage and the models were absolutley stunning! I recommend Deah and this salon to anyone interested in great styling and hair cuts. Deah made a great little chignon bun for me that lasted (without any strays or falls) for nearly eight hours and I was also doing physical labor such as putting up pop up tents, she is amazing! This is definately the place to go for everything concerning hair.
Thank you so much Vertigo!

I've been getting my hair done with Deah for over four years now and she's been awesome. She always works with me, as I never really know what I want to do with it. However, even with my indecisiveness, she always does it perfectly and I leave the salon ecstatic. Deah's been with me through all my phases, from short to long, and back to short again! We've even been all over the color spectrum, have done funky colors to calmer ""work-friendly"" highlights, and she always does a great job.
As for the salon, it's super laid-back, with a cool vibe and artwork on the walls. The staff are super friendly, accomodating, and professional, especially when booking appointments. I highly recommend Vertigo to anyone looking for the perfect salon and stylist fit!

I've been seeing Erika for a few years now, and there's nothing that would make me go somewhere else. Erika always knows what will work for my hair and face, and knows how to take my vague descriptions of what I want and turn it into a great hair cut. Everyone I've sent her way goes back. I always get compliments on my hair, usually a couple of times a week! The other thing I love is that what she does (be it color or cut) always grows out well, so if I don't have time to get to the salon right away, I don't look like I've given up on grooming.
The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, and all of the other staff are really friendly.
