From the upscale to the unique, here are some of the best beauty salons in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX:
Obsessed with Bravo’s hit show “Blow Out” and the upscale styling world of its weepy, tantrum-throwing owner Jonathan Antin? The atmosphere of the hair guru Matthew Tully’s Uptown Salon isn’t far off. They’re located at 2815 Allen Street, Dallas, 214-999-1116.
Avalon Salon and Spa at 6632 Snider Plaza and3669 McKinney Avenue in Dallas is another fav. They may be reached at 214-750-5667 or 214-969-1901.
So you’re sitting there and the stylist is cutting your hair and she doesn’t know you and you don’t know her and the silence between you she can’t stand – – you can, but she can’t. But this place leaves you alone, see? A best place to get a haircut and listen to the late rapper Tupac is is Stylelabb at 2714 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, 214-370-LABB. If you’re a guy and your hair is curly, what works better than cutting it is “taking the weight out of it,” as a stylist there says.
Are you into gossip? Well, Salon Gossip says it all. Located at 2216 Commerce Street in Dallas they may be contacted at 214-742-7300. Or there is Sweet 200 at 2550 Elm Street, also in Dallas. The number is 214-742-2500.
The best place to save yourself a trip to the spa and get your hair done at the same time is the Beauty Store & Salon at 5964 W. Parker Road in Plano. They may be reached at 972-608-4444. They have another location at 1900 Preston Road, Preston Park Village, #318, also in Plano. The number there is 867-6888. Not only can you find every ointment, lotion, peel, and organic skin- or hair-care concoction you’ll need here but the prices are usually lower than you can find at swankier spots. Through word-of-mouth they are also said to have the best colorist. Not all of us like to acknowledge that we’ve had to dip into the color wheel now and again but when middle age starts creeping up and gray hairs become evident, the colorists at this shop know how to keep you away from the tell-tale orangey glow or the just-too-vivid blonds.
For kids, there is Kids Kutz. Before discovering the place, one mom was so desperate to cut her two-year-old’s hair she took the scissors to him while he was asleep. Kids Kutz is located at 1201 Airport Freeway W., Suite 330, Room 21 in Euless. They may be reached at 817-354-9920.
Another good place to take the children is Stride Rite (ask for Ginger in the back). Two career families, already over-scheduled to the max with kids’ activities will find they can cross at least two items off their checklist if they visit this place in Preston Center. Located at 6129 Luther Lane, they may be contacted at 214-373-1182.
Voted Best Women’s Stylist by a local paper, Roman Gonzales is takes away the panic that usually ensues when people are trying to find a new stylist. Roman’s Hair Studio is located at 4200 Herschel Avenue, Suite 12 in Dallas. The number is 214-403-3855.
Also recommended is Osgoood-O’Neil Salon at 6932 Snider Plaza in Dallas. They may be reached at 214-373-6336. Don’t want to take a my word on it? Fine, then take Allure Magazine’s which recently named colorist J.T. Osgood one of the best colorists around.
Voted Best Hair Salon in 2002 by the Dallas Observer, P.J.’s Hair Salon is another top choice. Tucked away in a little shop next to the Hong Kong Market, it isn’t hip or swanky, expensive, or pretentious, either. Located at 9780 Walnut Street, #360F, they may be reached at 972-231-1101.
At Hairs The End Proprietors Robert Wilson and Matt Tully are looking for clients who want more than just a little off the top. Located at 108 S. Crowdus Street in Dallas, they may be reached at 214-742-4END.
