I wanted to get some recs on hair stylists in the frisco area that aren't outrageously priced! under $110 for cut/highlights/blow dry

My 22 yr old & I want someone who knows blonde highlights. I searched and found a few names and wondered if anyone had any feedback.

Megan @ Troy Richards?
Mansour @ Aalam Salon
Sara @ Clive & Co.
Brenda @ Salon M OR Sonia @ Salon M?

and of course...Peyton, lol...I have seen her name all over FOL. What salon is she at?

thanks!

I go to a lady named Debrah, she is not actually in Frisco but she is AMAZING! She is in Salon Boutique right across from Willowbend mall in Plano. She is known as the highlight Queen! I usually pay $120 for highlights, cut, wash, dry and style but it is totally worth it!

Sarah!! I'm in my 40's, have had highlights for decades and Sarah is the best of everyone who has done my hair. Clive & Co isn't cheap. You're not going to get the cut and highlights for under $110. Also, Sarah doesn't do any cutting. You'd have to book with a stylist who cuts, but there are some fabulous stylists for that as well. You just really can't go wrong with this salon. I just wish I'd found it sooner.

ETA: Sarah is a total sweetheart. :)

I go to Thomas at JCP Salon...he does a highlight (2 colors ~ highlight & lowlight) & cut for $95. Took me a while to convince myself to switch from my other salon to JCP; but I'm glad I did! I have a 20% off coupon that is good for new clients...PM me if you want to try him & it's yours.

Meagan at Troy Richard Salon has been doing my blonde highlights for about 4 years now. I moved with her when she moved there. She is really great at color., but unfornately you won't get out of there for under $110 for highlights, cut and blow dry. But worth it IMO.

I go to Megan at Troy Richards. I love love her. My sister gets blonde highlights done and drives from Norman just get get her hair done. She has tried places closer and always goes back to Megan. She is not cheap though. There is another girl in there that did our babysitters hair for her birthday and she is blonde and it looked great. She is less then Meagan her name is Allison and she did a great job on our babysitters hair.

I go to Kara Vrooman at Catwalk Salon and LOVE her. She is such a sweet girl and very reasonably priced (IMO). For a cut, partial highlight, toner, and blow out I pay $125. I started going to her about two years ago and will NEVER use anyone else. My hair has never looked so shiny and healthy.

Good luck!

I shouldn't know these things, but....

Call Joe and his brother Butros who own Salon Ana Bella at 121/Custer for an estimate. They should be less expensive. Joe has been my wife's hairdresser for years (blonde highlights) - and she's picky but frugal (he was the senior hairdresser at Regis then he opened up Salon La Bella - Lebanon/Legacy before selling it and opening up Salon Ana Bella a couple of years ago) Several of my wife's friends go there as well.

Nicker goes to Thomas as well, and always compliments him. She's been wanting me to go to see him for a long time.

Blonde Highlights

I just reconnected with my old stylist. She is located in Carrollton, however.
Angela Boncek at Studio 213, on Marsh, just south of Trinity Mills.
214 315 7087

I have very fine lifeless hair and she makes me look amazing. The only reason that I stopped going to her was because I've been unemployed. Now that I will start my new job on Monday, I went to her for "professional" help.

She has her master cosmetology teaching certificate and has her certification in cut and color with I think Redken. She is also a special occasions hair stylist specialist. She ran the salon at the Grand Kempinski off of the Tollway for years.

Her pricing has gone up along with everything else. I paid $90 for cut and highlights, which I hated to do, but I trust her with my hair and won't go to anyone else as long as I can afford it.

Best of luck to you.

My guy is amazing. I get highlights and a cut for around $75. I recently went to brown/hazelnut from blonde as I wanted a change, but I'll be going back for more highlights from him. He's superfast as well. I'm usually in and out in about an hour and a half.

I don't know the people you mentioned, but I LOVE Jan Edwards for hair! She rocks! She has m-oved and is now inside Imagique Hair and Spa on Preston. Above the new II Brothers. Her number is 214-619-4242.
I just went to her yesterday and it is great to have a new cut and style! I have used her for about 4 years now.

I have been going to Chris for a couple of years, too... LOVE him. I have naturally dirty-blonde hair and he brightens them up to a "beach-blonde" color. I love his work and I've been to a lot of stylists that charge double what he does with less than stellar results. I have a lot of hair (long, too)... I pay $90 for color, wash, cut, blow dry, style and flat iron. I'm there for a couple hours of "me" time. I highly recommend him. The salon is not fancy, but you get great results.

Just resurrecting this thread to say thanks for the referral. The stylist I normally go to wasn't available (she always needs at least a week's notice) so I called him and he gladly fit me in same day. I had no idea what to do with my hair but had an unrealistic picture of Jennifer Anniston to go off of and he went with it :p He did great. The color looks so natural! Plus he was so sweet and affordable. Definitely my new hair stylist from this point on :p

Ha; funny...I also have that 'unrealistic pic' of Jennifer Aniston that I always take for my highlights as well!!! My stylist gets it pretty close...just wish I had Jen's hair & body to go along with the color...lol!
