Wow!!! Just left there after 3 1/2 hours of torture to my daughter's hair. DID NOT EVEN FINISH HER HAIR EITHER! The owner said I could come back tomorrow to finish because....... they stopped my daughters hair to start on the next person. I would have to wait until the finished her hair THEN they would return to my daughters hair. So I decided to leave and told the owner since they only applied shampoo and conditioner we would call it even and leave w/out paying. WELL I called my credit card company and they alredy ran the charge thru! HORRIBLE experience and will never go back. Blamed me for wanting to sit in the room with my tenderness 10 year old. Said I caused the hairdresser to be nervous. Really? I told them before I made the appointment. If you cant take it then dont make the appointment!!!!
I was so not impressed with the service here or the knowledge of the stylist. I've been natural over 8 years and I've successfully cared for my own hair and am usually hesitant to allow others to care for my hair due to previous experience from cocky stylists. I thought this would be a better experience after reading reviews but on second look I can only assume that those with a positive experience probably actually think their curls are a "problem" to be "managed". I on the other hand love my healthy, thick, tightly curled hair. First the stylist used horrible washing technique with shampoo further tangling my hair and poorly cleansing and conditioning. Then proceeded to rip the hell out of my hair with a denman brush and blow dryer without adequately or gently detangling first. I should have known better due to the fact that she obviously disliked and could not care for her own "natural" hair because of the obvious bad sew in weave she had in her hair. And her own professed use of a "lil" relaxer to help her own curls blend with weave.... All I originally wanted was a trim because I haven't trimmed my hair in a while and during our consultation she said that she would just blow dry my hair before trimming. She then proceeded to flat iron my hair. Also with poor technique in my opinion. Hopefully once I wash this mess out my curls will revert back to their original beauty and the cut won't be completely horrible. I first went here for a trim to cut off frayed ends and single strand knots after going about 1.5 years without professional trim... But after all the stress and pulling I feel like I just have additional wear and tear on my hair... Awful awful awful... So mad right now! And overpriced as hell. Which I wouldn't mind paying I the service was up to par.

I actually enjoyed my time at this hair salon! In the past, I have dreaded the long hours at local salons, with grumpy hairstylists who expressed annoyance when I broached the subject of returning to wearing my hair naturally. I have discontinued relaxing my hair for the past six months and am amazed at what natural products and a flat iron can do. I certainly do not miss the burning chemicals on my scalp! Harmoni is an excellent setting to work ones way back to natural hair. Hair stylist Sharon was punctual, kind, and very informative about how their products with natural ingredients (i.e. Babassu oil) compliment the hair of women of color. She took a gentle approach to caring for my hair and the end result was excellent. The products worked very well with my hair type and I look forward to returning for my second appointment today!

I've been natural for the past 4 years and was considering if I should stay natural or return to relaxers. After finding Harmoni Salon through searching online, reading many reviews, and even seeing photo results posted, I was convinced I would give it a try. I left feeling very confident Monica was knowledgeable about caring for my hair type (very coarse) and condition. I left the salon in amazement of the results. I'm looking forward to this journey of having healthy long hair!!!

I've lived in San Antonio for over three years and have had one bad haircut after another. Based on all of the good reviews I decided to try Harmoni. I requested Monica. The salon was quiet and relaxed, which is unusual for San Antonio. Monica listened to the issues I have with my hair and was very thorough in explaining what she was going to do. I just had a wash, cut and style (flat-iron), but it was a very pleasant experience. I actually like my hair again. My hair type is coarse, and I relax it but I'm considering going natural one of these days, and Monica seemed very knowledgeable about transitioning processed hair back to natural. Very pleased with this experience and will be going back.

Took my daughter in to see Sharon for her first haircut. Albeit she is 7, so it was quite past typical haircut age, so this made me a very nervous mama. Sharon was very patient with all my questions, and gave me some great tips on caring for my daughters curls. I'm very satisfied with the results of her cut and steam treatment, and we will be going back for again. I also really appreciate their natural line of products, and feel comfortable using them on my little one.

I was very leery about trying salons because I had no good referrals. I am new to the area and my hair is naturally curly and unprocessed. I really needed it doe so I went on the advice of a natural hair group on the internet and ended up here. I had my hair washed with an extra heat style on my natural hair at Harmoni Salon in the Stone Oak area near 281 and I was very satisfied. Aressa was my stylist and she was very nice and professional. She took her time with me but did not rush. I liked the fact that I was her only client at the time and did not have to sit around and wait on an over-booked stylist. When I left my hair looked great! It was silky-straight with luscious curls. I will definitely be returning!

I recently had my hair done at Harmoni Salon and I must say I was thoroughly impressed by my service and outcome. I was referred by my mother and sister who both frequent the salon. My stylist was very knowledgable of the products being used on my hair and listened to everything I said. She also gave me some tips on how to achieve the look I want. Overall I loved it and would definitely recommend it to a stranger looking to have a wonderful hair experience. Sharon is FAB and I can't wait to go to my next appointment :-)

I've been natural for over two years and me and my hair have been through quite the roller coaster ride. I have 4C hair that has major shrinkage on top of me being extremely tender headed so i really disliked doing my own hair. i would wear sewn in weaves so i wouldnt have to deal with it, which led to my hair being dry brittle and coarse (no fun to wash and detangle) not to mention prone to breakage. i realized i needed much help so I found Harmoni online at Naturally Curly and was amazed at the positive feedback so i decided to call and make an appointment which took a while to get but was well worth the wait! Monica took great care of my hair and walked me through each step of the process. The steam treatment with the hydrating hair masque left my hair soft and silky. She trimmed all the dead ends and i really respected the fact that she asked me how much i wanted her to cut BEFORE she started cutting. She was patient and very honest about the condition of my hair and explained what i needed to do to get healthy hair. The products she used was also AMAZAING. My hair is bouncy and full of life! Cant wait til next week for my next appointment!
I'm still not 100% sold on yet on Harmoni Salon. My initial experience was great (Aresa did a great job on my first flat iron!! I mean it was great!) and as a result I scheduled another session. The experience from the second session -- not so much. To make a long story short, I left looking like a chia pet and still had to pay for the service (no bueno) but despite that horrible experience I gave Harmoni another shot and this time was pleased with my session.
HOWEVER, what really is making me skeptical about their practices was my most recent situation. Someone from their business called me at 11:03am (and didnt leave a message, so I called back after work -- didnt really think anything of it, since I had an appointment scheduled (or so I thought) for 1 December. So when I called, I spoke with Monica who informed me that my appointment was scheduled for today at 7:15pm - I explained that I would need to reschedule since I was under the impression my appointment was Thursday -- that's when I was informed that I would charged a $25 fee since I canceled the appointment after the 24hr period. PLEASE NOTE: Prior to this I didn't get a text/email/phone confirming my appointment. Maybe I missed something, but NO ONE called me yesterday to confirm my appointment, but instead called today at 11:03 (didn't leave a message) and I'm responsible for a $25 fee? I appreciate the owner Monica, for her willingness not to charge for rescheduling. The salon does good work, it just seems like it may not be the best fit for me.
I normally don't write reviews, but wanted to share. Bottom line, my experience with the work/effort produced is split -- still can't forget that horrible style, and my most recent experience kinda puts a damper on my other positive experiences/visits. Products are expensive but they work well. In my opinion, I hope this last appointment works out -- but it will definitely be the deciding factor. Will keep you posted...

I was very happy with my time at Harmoni. Aresia was my stylist and I've been going to her for almost a year and i think she does a great job. I have naturally curly hair and don't trust many people to touch my hair but i love the results. I think its kinda expensive but you do get what you pay for in the long run. I like their products but they are on the higher end as well. Although I don't go on a regular basis, when i do go i enjoy my time spent.

Harmoni Salon does awesome work. Im very satisfied and everyone I know that has been here is greatly pleased. Aresia does fantastic work and takes time listening to exactly what your requests are. She handles your hair with great care. I recommend Harmoni Salon to everyone, ask for Aresia.

I was very disappointed with my hair cut. First, it was the most I had ever paid for a hair cut, and to me was NO better than Great Clips...Arevia seems to have cut my hair like SHE wanted to and did not take into account the natural waves I have. Plus she did not get the sides even nor the layers. She was very firm, almost scolding me trying to push their very expensive Holistic hair products. I will have to wait for my hair to grow out so I can get it fixed... I WILL NOT GO BACK.

I went all natural within the last year, but I wasn't educated on caring for my natural hair. So I when to Harmoni and Lia (stylist) knocked my kinks straight! My nappy hair was blowing in the wind when I left the salon. Harmoni salon is a place I would recommend to anyone with any type of hair.

Lisa is the first stylist I have been to that can handle my texture issues and give me the look I want. She takes her time to find out what my wants and needs are each time she does my hair. I love the way she keeps my look updated and fresh while listening to my my expectations. I highly recomend Lisa as a stylist.

I just returned from my 3rd visit to Harmoni Salon since moving to San Antonio in June and my hair has never looked better. After years of growing out my curly locks, I finally found a stylist, Sharon, with whom I trusted cutting them off. I love my new short 'do and I would trust Sharon with my hair any day. I have never had Monica cut my hair, but she is always really friendly whenever I come in and her and Sharon always make me feel welcome. If you have any questions, these ladies know a LOT about hair so don't be shy. I love Harmoni!

I spent six years without getting my hair cut because most stylists butchered my naturally curly hair and made me look goofy.
Now I go to Harmoni Salon. I'm really impressed with Sharon. She created a new custom cut just for me, working through my nebulous goals to do it. When I came back the second time, I noticed that she had also taken extensive notes to be able to recreate the cut for me. It's a very relaxed, yet professional, and also skilled salon. And they're concerned about the health of your hair, too.
I get compliments on my hair all the time. I get twice as many since going to Harmoni.

I am absolutely in love with Harmoni Salon!! I recently moved to San Antonio and was very disappointed in the first two salons I tried. One of my friends told me about Harmoni and I've been hooked ever since! Great atmosphere. Natural and healthy products. The staff is the sweetest ever!!! They are also soooo knowledgeable. I love it! I went to Monica. I won't go to anyone else. She is AMAZING!! I made my two daughters appointments and they love it also. My youngest doesn't want to go to anyone else but Sharon!!!! Nothing but good to say. Harmoni Salon is it!!
