    My daughter had an appointment first thing at opening. Stylists do not arrive early so they are setting up/sweeping up hair from the day before at the same time as opening the door AND the same time appointments are scheduled (there were about 5 of us). 2 of the stylists with opening appointments had emergencies and were late or not coming, one of which was my daughter. I only figured that out by eavesdropping, we were not greeted for at all for about 10 minutes . They called in a different stylist for the other woman but said nothing to us. I do understand that emergencies happen but communication is key (also that seems like a statistically improbable amount of emergencies but I am willing to believe they really were). I finally found someone who said our stylist would be 40 minutes late. My daughter decided to wait and they did give us a $5 discount. Her haircut is fine- not great, she asked for layers and there are a very few, but with a stylist who was that late and planning to move away, it could've been worse. The place is cute. They should've offered a drink while we waited, maybe I wouldn't have been so irritated, hah!

    I wanted to get a Brazilian blow out for the first time but I was nervous about doing it and how the process would take for my hair. I didn’t know a lot of stylists in waco that was certified to perform the treatment to my hair. After calling my family stylist she referred me to her friend Melissa Brown and told me if anyone can do it she can. The confidence she had in her friend was enough for me to take that leap of faith. I booked a consultation with Melissa and it went so well that immediately after I was in her chair. I love her professionalism I explained to her my goals in retaining my natural curl Pattern while defining the curls. Not only did she convince me that she was able to do this but she also explained to me the benefits of having the Brazilian Blowout will help me continue to grow strengthen and manage my hair by controlling the frizz while sealing the follicles. After the procedure I loved the results so much that I’m committed to following up in two months and I even booked an appointment for my mom to get hers done. My hair is so light weight now it flows with the wind. It’s easy to comb through less snag and less breakage and minimized the hair on the floor as well as the hair left in my comb. This is a miracle for my type hair I’m African American and Indian with a 4B and 4C type curl pattern and I am a witness that Melissa can manage and tame all types of hair. Thank you Woman you are a Godsend ??Service: Hairstyling

    My sister's hair recently grew back from chemo and she decided to come here to get her haircut for a clean up as a walk-in. My sister instructed the stylist of what she was expecting and specifically asked if she was experience with using clippers and cutting short hair, "the stylist agreed and started to do the haircut.(Mind you my sister has not cut her hair since the first time she went bald.). She started to cry just a bit and without even a concern the hairstylist ignored her and continued. It was awkward. When she left the place she looked at her sideburns.. one was rounded and the other was square and the worst part is that she was cut on the back of her neck. From there she drove straight to a barbershop to get the haircut fixed. (By Iris @ Next Generation Barbershop) bawling her eyes out. There was no compassion nor sympathy from the hairstylist on the behalf of her mistakes... no personal connection was established which to me I value the most is great customer service because that will always ensure that you'll want to return.Instead of the hairstylist being honest about her experience.. she basically, "faked it til she made it" and instead sent her off knowing that the haircut was horrible. I would suggest doing research on the stylist and their work before sitting in a chair.Service: Haircut

    I was able to get a pretty last minute appointment with Amy. It was fantastic! The location is very centrally located, the staff were super polite and helpful and the decor of the salon is beautiful. I highly recommend getting your hair done here! Make sure you call for an appointment, and they actually do a little bit of everything so make sure to call and ask! BTW parking can be difficult at times so make sure you give yourself some parking time!

    This is the best hair salon in Waco. I have gotten blowouts bi-weekly by nearly every stylist in the salon, and every time I have been impressed! Shelbi is definitely my favorite. She is very knowledgeable and professional, and has a great job on my extensions and balayages. If you’re thinking of getting extensions, make sure to book with her!Services: Hair colouring

    It’s OKI got a blow out I don’t think it’s greatI don’t think I’ll go there again but they didn’t do a bad job. It is frizzy. Normally not the case when I do it. I'm Hispanic in case that's relevant for ur hairTheir customer service is really niceDay 2: still Frizzy and worried about putting product in to make it not frizzyHair feels dirty.I rewashed & dryer my own hair one handed. Rainy outside. No frizz.

    I'm a Baylor student and I came here to get a ton of my hair chopped off! My hair originally was pretty long and got it cut in almost a long bob with layers. Haylee was my stylist and I came in one morning on a pretty short notice. The woman at the front desk was a bit quiet, but it was an early morning. I got my hair cut in layers and it was exactly what I wanted. I also got my eyebrows and upper lip waxed which was done also by Haylee. At first I was terrified about having my hair cut short, but she did an amazing job and I was not disappointed! I never even get my hair cut at salons, but honestly now I trust On The Avenue so much I will be coming down from Dallas to get my hair done during the summer.
