Mary is truly an artist when it comes to hair. She took the time to listen to all my hair requests and concerns and also offered great hair care advice. I could tell she is fully committed and loves what she does. Not to mention she is super sweet! She completely transformed my hair and I left with healthier hair than when I came in. Thank you, Mary!

Mary Catherine is the very best in the world! My son made an appointment with her in December of 2007 to give me a makeover. Even though I now live in Richmond, Virginia, I wait until I visit Houston for her to cut and color my hair. I don't trust anyone else. She takes her time and makes sure that both you and herself are pleased with her work. She knows her profession and once you have her work her magic on you, then you won't consider having anyone else style your hair.

I have been seeing Mary Catherine for my hair for 12 or 13 years, even when I didn’t have much hair due to chemotherapy. She does the best hair color, highlights and/or haircuts of anyone that I ever used. She is very knowledgeable and always has ideas on how to make my cut or color special and always makes me feel wonderful by the end of our sessions. I highly recommend her services.

Mary took such good care of me. I had a pageant to prepare for and she cut and prepped my hair before the show! Her efforts were not in vain and I did get crowned! My hair lacked shine due to it being super thirtsty as she calls it, so she made sure I got plenty nutrition for my hair and sent me home with the perfect shampoo and conditioner that both my daughter and I use!

Mary Catherine knows my hair like it was some kind of garden and the natural curls were plants. They all have their own preference to curl towards one side or another, and she cuts them so they can do what they prefer, and look good doing it. I’ve never had anyone cut my hair so the natural curls have such good opportunities to show off!

MC’s work is amazing!! I always leave happy with my cut and color. She’s great with blondes and makes sure to keep my hair healthy and strong after all of the processing. She also has great conversation which is always a plus. 10/10 Would recommend her to everyone! (She’s also great with men’s hairstyles)

I had been going to MC for over a year and have finally had enough. The first time I went to her, she had to bleach my hair four times because she "miscalculated"; therefore, my hair has been breaking ever since. I continued to go to her because she was a family friend and I felt some sort of loyalty toward her. I should have listened to EVERYONE else. Not a single person understood why I continued to go to her because the results were almost always horrible (I was happy with her work a few times). Not only is she always late, she takes a minimum of four hours to color hair. As if that wasn't long enough, you will likely have to go back a second time like me because she didn't color it correctly the first time. Her other reviews are fantastic but if you asked how many went back and are still with her, I guarantee they all have ceased to do so. She is not a great hairstylist and I wish I stopped going after the first time. Also, she gossips about her clients. For example, I now know she has a client who has given over $100K to some guy who is scamming her. If that wasn't enough, she talks constantly about how disgusted she is by the Trans community and that they are going to Hell.

Most hairdressers shy away from doing crazy or unnatural hair colors. I personally went to three different hair dressers who all refused to do a gray color and insisted I stay with a natural hair color like a deep red. Mary on the other hand, jumped right at the opportunity and said, "let's do it!" Her salon is welcoming and I felt right at home from the beginning. After having bleached my hair within the last 6 months, I was relieved to see she uses many organic and plant-based products that achieve the look while minimizing damage to the hair. She always told me what she was doing and the purpose of using a particular product. I couldn't be happier with my hairstyle and color!

I have been a client of Mary Catherine's for over 10 years. She always gives me her such personal attention. She is very invested in my needs. I have very fragile hair but she has taught me a lot about how to take care of it. The color always look great. I've gone back to her every 2 to 3 months, and I always get compliments on my hair. You can't go wrong with Mary Catherine.

I've been going to Mary Catherine for years. She is a joy to be around and a top notch hair stylist. Her new location is so convenient and cozy. I think it is a more comfortable environment compared to the large, high end salons that she previously worked at.

Mary Catherine was referred to me by a friend. Her haircut for me and color were great. I had 2 people call me "chic" looking after she had just done my hair. I would highly recommend her. She's reasonably priced and does an excellent job. I'm a cpa so my hair needs to look very professional. She'll be my stylist for a long time.

Mary Catherine has been my hair dresser for over 20 years. I always leave her feeling great! She specializes in organic hair products, especially Kevin Murphy which I love. She's a genius at hair color! It's a rare to have that combination of experienced, creative and on the cutting edge. She has it! I highly recommend a visit to her.
