Textures Hair Design is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars, based on 63 reviews!
I love this salon and absolutely adore Isra. She's a master with color... And everything else! I can't recommend her enough.
Always love it here!! And Elia is just one amazing hair stylist!
The stylists here are incredibly friendly. Booking an appointment is super easy and I've never been disappointed with a haircut. I always ask for Christina and she always does a great job. They also have an endless supply of Bumble & Bumble products which is always a plus.
I tried Texture for the first time couple of days ago. I made a last minute appointment and the receptionist scheduled me with Maryam. I had a great haircut and blow dry by Maryam. I walked out of the salon very pleased with my experience and my haircut. She understood what I wanted and completely exceeded my expectations. I have become her customer after 1 try and will follow her wherever she may go. Finding a great hairstylist is not easy. I am so glad I met her. I highly recommend her
Thank you Maryam! I walked out of your salon with a gorgeous color and cut! You truly are very talented. I'm so happy I found you! I will definitely be coming back!
I've found my new "go to" salon for men's haircuts. Maryam does an outstanding job with my haircut. The salon is very nice with excellent service, a great downtown Menlo location, and plenty of convenient free parking.
This place is great for haircuts. The hair salon has friendly stylists that try to work with you to give you the best and most satisfying haircut. They actually listen to what you share during the initial consulting session. The stylist will also explain and give you helpful styling tips as you get your hair cut. It doesn't feel like they are rushing.
I went to this salon for the first time last week. Christina gave me the best haircut and color I've had in my life!!! I feel like a million bucks ;) Thank you Christina!! I will certainly be back! It's also wonderful to be offered cookies and tea while waiting and during your session.
The only thing my daughter asked for for her fifteenth birthday was to get her hair highlighted. Since this would be her first time doing anything major to her hair, I wanted to make sure it was done by the best that I could afford. This is why I chose Textures Hair Salon. Elia is super professional and her experience shows. We weren't sure how to describe what we wanted, but she knew exactly what we were thinking and it couldn't have turned out better! The salon is really easy to get to and there was plenty of free parking out back. I would recommend Elia and Textures to any of my friends and will now become a regular.
I see Miriam at Textures - great cut on my long hair, along with good advice like switching my part every 6 months. Seen her 3 times now, over the last couple years. I'll definitely be seeing her every couple months now to help my hair stay healthy and long!
I went to Textures in Menlo Park nervously about to cut 10+ inches off of my hair. I've always had it long, wanted to donate it and chop it off! Olimpo Cerda did a FANTASTIC job on my cut and hi-lights. I was extremely satisfied and will not let anyone but him do anything to my hair from now on! He pays attention to detail and is a perfectionist. I would strongly recommend anyone go to him and have even referred many of my closest friends.
I moved to Menlo Park from out of state 4 years ago and have tried about 4different hair salons, all unsuccessful at replacing my regular gal (inconveniently located 700 miles away). I used to think that all high-end hair salons have great stylists, but learned the hard way that price and quality don't always correlate (exception: Wal-Mart). I happened to swing by one day for a bang trim and fell in LOVE with Michelle. I've been going back there for about 9 months. She is the first stylist that actually delivered on what I wanted, and what she promised. She is knowledgeable about different highlighting techniques that don't require constant maintenance. I referred a friend to her and she is now also a client. The other great thing is that they don't charge outrageous prices, it's clean, and everybody there is super nice and professional. They also mail out coupons periodically, so you don't feel completely taken for granted.
Bottom line: Michelle is the BEST and no more 700 mile trips to get my hair done = happy girl (with great hair)
Elia did an amazing job cutting my hair. Having recently moved to the area, I have been hunting for a fashion-forward and professional salon. After striking out with several other salons, I found Textures and made an appointment with Elia - my experience was amazing. Textures is a clean, professional, and comfortable environment to have a hair cut/style. Their prices are reasonable, considering the area; however, the overall experience is worth much more that what I paid. I booked another appointment, and will be seeing Elia again in four weeks. More importantly, I finally found my salon - Textures.
I love Lori Grass. She, ahem, makes my hair blond again. Good talk, amazing prices, quick service, late night hours. Compliments abound as a result of her talents. Did I mention how reasonable the pricing is???
I just went to Textures for the first time and got an incredible haircut by Nina Cordero. She did an awesome job (I had about 4.5 inches cut) and was really receptive to some of my ideas. I let her make the calls on how long to cut the layers near my face and the finished style was spot on. I will definitely be coming back. (Plus, they have a 20% off coupon on their website. Don't know how long it will be available, but it makes the trip well worth it!). Good luck!
I just moved to Menlo Park and used Yelp to find a new place for a haircut. I got a GREAT haircut from Naomi tonight -- better than even very good cuts that I've had before. She really thought about what the most flattering modification of my cut would be, and then executed it perfectly, all while giving me lots of friendly, smart tips about moving to the area. She has a new customer!!
What a great experience! The atmosphere in the salon is always friendly... Naomi is my stylist and she has me looking the best I've looked in years. You know, trimmed but you don't have to wait two weeks for it to grow out.
I have to rate the whole experience five stars...
She has a client for life.
First time visit for a hair cut and partial highlight with Meli. Easy scheduling over the phone; they got me in for an appointment within 24 hours of when I called (appointment was for a weekday morning). It was my first time getting professional hair coloring done, so I was a bit nervous and wasn't very good at articulating exactly what I wanted. Meli was wonderful throughout the service, and the outcome was great. I have medium-length (a couple inches past my shoulders) hair, and the total cost came to $180 for cut and partial highlights. I am a big tipper when I'm happy with a service, so I paid just over $200 all together. That was quite a sticker shock for me, coming from a suburb of Portland, Oregon where prices are lower, but I had figured it was going to be a splurge. I am happy with the result and will go back. When I left, Meli told me I can come back for FREE bang trims and gave me coupons for future services.
Since coming to the bay, I have has the pleasure of coming to textures salon. Generally speaking I am a 20$ hair cut guy but the care service and product that I receive here has had me coming back for over a year. In particular, Michelle carbajal, is a lovely stylist. She takes a tremendous amount of time and energy to make sure that you get exactly what you ask for. What's more, she is always willing to make suggestions which I always take as they are 10x better than my own. many kudos to this place. Come, meet michelle, and get an awesome cut.
I am back to praise Textures once more as consistency in hair color is very important. My appointment with Melissa was also very rewarding; previously in October Naomi worked here magic by creating beautiful highlightes and made my red shade more blonde. Naomi was "on standby," as she was booked through Christmas. I had walked in to schedule an appointment with her and she suggested if I wanted it "now" that Melissa was excellent too and to check her schedule...I did and she happened to be able to take me on the spot. This time I wanted to return to my warmer shade and keep the beautiful highlightes. Melissa worked from Naomi's color notes and my hair color turned out even better than I could imagine. The point I am making....Textures is a salon where a team effort is a very nice touch and the results are outstanding.
Naomi is a GODESS of the tresses! I've entrusted her with my locks for over 5 years now and have never been disappointed! PLUS, I now live 2 hours away from her (since April 2008) and STILL drive to the Bay Area once a month because I can't find anyone as good as she is in my neighborhood.
I had my hair done with Daniela this week and I was very pleased. She listened to what I wanted and was very thorough. Pricing was reasonable, and I'm very pleased with my cut and styling, will go back for sure.
Textures is a great salon. Michelle did a fantastic job on my hair, but I think I'm even more impressed by the lack of attitude which is so common at many hair salons. The stylists are super nice and down to earth.
I've received great haircuts, highlights and care from Shirin. She is talented and professional.
Textures is in a great location too.
I was referred to this salon from a colleague for a bridal up-do. Melissa designed a beautiful, unique style that was perfect for what I was looking for! Still to this day, I receive wonderful comments about my hair from those who view my wedding pictures. My bridesmaids also had their hair styled here, and the results were beautiful (and stayed secure all night)! I have continued receiving hair services from Melissa - she has a a great personality and a natural ability to work with hair. I would absolutely recommend her and the other hair stylists at this salon.
I had the best haircut and highlights ever! Melissa worked like hand and glove with me and I got exactly what I wanted and more. She listened, she gave me excellent choices and worked with me and my hair without a hitch. I had asked a friend where she got her hair cut and she told me Melissa at Textures. I followed up and couldn't have been happier.
I had Szeka To highlight and cut my hair! I had never highlighted my hair and I was really nervous about it but she walked me through the process and helped me visualize how it would look! My hair came out looking fabulous, I loved it! Thanks Szeka!
This place might have the highest ratio of filtered reviews to unfiltered reviews. Not sure what that's about... Anyway, Meli gave me a haircut here recently, and I really like the cut. She did layers and long bangs very well in my opinion and I'll probably go back. She was super nice, as was everyone there. The only thing that annoyed me was that they gave me a new client packet as I left, which I only opened like a week later to find that there was a coupon for a discount off the next service *if you book the appointment before you leave your first visit*. So, I guess I can't use that now? It would've been nice if they told me that upfront instead of putting it in an envelope as I'm walking out the door. Otherwise, great experience!
I have been going to Texture's for about 6 years now, ever since an at-home mishap left my blonde hair green! Naomi fixed my green hair, and I have been going to her ever since.
I highly recommend Texture's, the staff is always very friendly and overall, they offer a great salon experience!
This is for Amy who is the person who does my manicures and pedicures at Textures. She does the best gel fills I've ever had and is the only person who has ever given me a good pedicure. I've been going to Amy for at least 5 years and highly recommend her.
I just had my first Textures experience, and I loved it! After seeing all the great reviews here, I called and got a next-day appointment with Elia. When I arrived, the receptionists were very friendly and offered me tea, coffee, or water. The salon was very clean and nicely decorated, with plenty of parking available. Elia herself was extremely friendly and did a GREAT job with my hair. She immediately picked up on many of the things other stylists tend to ignore (cowlicks, side part, fine hair, flyaways, etc.), which I appreciated. She gave me a great haircut and then spent a lot of time and care drying and styling my hair. I was thrilled with the results!
Elia gave me the 15% off "first timer" rate, so I paid $68 plus tip. Her usual is $80, which isn't quite clear from the price list (which says $50 and up). Maybe some of the other stylists charge less. She also gave me an envelope with coupons for future visits.. $10 off a service, 20% off a product, and 15% off color/highlights. I thought that was a great way to build customer loyalty.
I'm looking forward to going back! Thanks, Elia and Textures!
I found Textures 10 years ago when I called the salon in a panic to fix my hair after a really bad haircut elsewhere. I was greeted by a wonderful stylist on the phone who squeezed me in to help me since the salon was about to close. When I showed up, she gave me the perfect haircut. Little did I know that wonderful stylist was the owner, Elia. Now, 10 years later, I will not let anyone else touch my hair. I can guarantee that whenever I get a haircut, I will receive at least 10 compliment on my hair. Checkers at Safeway, random people on the street, at the carwash...
The salon is elegant, clean and efficient. The location just perfect in the middle of downtown Menlo Park and parking is not a problem.
My mom, my sister, my aunt and now my daughter all go to Elia and I don't know how many times others have asked me for her number. I love Textures and I love Elia!
I think I finally I found a place where I can say I have a future hair stylist in mind! My friend, Christina, had recommended that I check out her salon where she was being trained by the owner (Elia - Super Knowledgeable & Nice), and that she was excited to show me her new skills that she had learned.
Christina definitely surprised me! I asked for a fohawk cut and she made sure that the length and style were to my approval. Superb quality & perfection!
Besides the cut, the hair wash was awesome too. It was a wash and a soothing head massage at the same time.
Overall experience: A++++
I'm definitely recommending Christina to everyone I know that needs a personal hair stylist in the future!
Elia is amazing! I didn't have an appointment (just accompanying my sister) and she squeezed me in for a haircut and style. I loved it! Will be coming back soon!
I had the pleasure of meeting with Amy to get highlights for the first time and a trim. The final highlights were amazing. Amy took the time to incorporate different shades of blonde into my naturally brown hair to make it look more natural, ensuring the finished product was perfect, which it was! The trim was exactly the length that I wanted, and I cannot wait to meet with Amy again. While the overall vibe of Textures is relaxed, all of the hair stylists are professional and guarantee that you leave a happy customer! My whole family has been coming here for 10 years now and we wouldn't ever dream of going anywhere else.
I made an appointment with Amy Tran because my regular stylist, at a different salon, was not available. I received one of the best haircuts I have had in several years. Amy was very professional, listened to what I wanted and also offered her own expert suggestions. She also gave a relaxing head massage. It has been about three weeks since my hair cut and it still looks wonderful. The salon staff was very attentive and offered me a beverage. The salon is clean and there is ample free parking near by. I usually go to "high end" salons and found this to be a better experience for a fraction of the cost. This is my new regular salon.
Incredibly friendly people at Textures! Elia does a great job with our family's hair (the little guys and Mom and Dad) and Katie is super-friendly at the front - she's great with scheduling appointments and has such a warm personality. They're all just wonderful people, and this salon is a great asset to the community. Keep it up, guys!
Super talented and friendly stylists. The staff goes above and beyond to make you comfortable. My mom referred me to them and I am glad she did!
Elia is the only one I trust to cut/color my hair! Always does a great job keeping my hair healthy and cutting a style that works for my crazy curls and for styling straight
Textures is a warm, friendly salon. The receptionist offers a warm greeting, a reminder phone call (great as the appointment doesn't always make it to my calendar), and water, tea, or coffee with a smile. I've rarely had to wait more than a minute or two (If that) which is great for busy people and a feat I wish they could teach some other appointment-based businesses. These are nice touches but the reason I have been coming here for about 6 years (even after having moved out of town and thus having many closer choices) is that my hair always looks good when I am done! She does a great job with coloring and highlights and checks in to see if I want any modifications. She also colors my eye brows so that they magically reappear :). While I've kept a similar cut for a while now, she checks in each time about the length and adjusts based on my request. She can also look at your face and hair and provide suggestions which is something not all stylists can do well. High quality products are used to make your hair healthier and feel better. Textures is a warm, friendly, well-run salon where I get a great cut and color that I have been complimented on. If you want the same, give it a try! Several town parking lots within a block or two too.
Went here to get a hair cut for my daughter and myself. I was referred to see Isra from a friend of mine. It is really hard to find a good hairdresser that can fit your style and keep you updated on the new styles. I was so impressed with her work. I felt like a new woman when I left. My daughter loved her cut. She made great recommendations on how to keep our hair healthy and didn't try to push product on us which made her advise more genuine. I have been in the Bay Area for 10 years and have been skipping from hair dresser to hair dresser. I finally found my match. I was so impressed that I had to write my first review. You have got to come see Isra. She will make you feel like a superstar.
Elia has twice given me the best haircut I have ever gotten. I had hair down my back and she gave me a very short a-line bob, which was terrifying, but it turned out exactly how I wanted it.
After I grew it back out she gave me long, sleek layers. She actually took an inch off when I asked for an inch, rather than taking liberties to cut off extra hair that might be damaged.
I have awkwardly thin but frizzy hair and it has always been styled well here-- never weighed down or damaged by product or styling.
I actually live in NYC now and still try to get my hair cut here every time I'm back!
Christina Cheung at Textures Hair Salon is a very gifted hair artisan. My first visit, and she nailed it! Exactly the haircut I wanted. She listened to me and what I DIDN'T want, and then gave me the best cut I've had in years. My experience exceeded every expectation I had by a mile.
My hair is not easy to cut, either; a bad and unbalanced cut a few weeks ago left me frustrated, and my hair is thinning, very fine, and I have cowlicks. Thank goodness that Christina is VERY gifted (and reasonably priced as well). Additionally, the salon itself is a calm and pleasant environment, and the front receptionist was very professional, helpful and friendly. Things could not have gone better, and I look forward to my next visit soon!
I had my hair cut here by Amy. She did a great job!! She was very professional and the cost was very reasonable!! I would recommend anyone to get their hair done by her!
Love textures- great haircut and really nice staff!
I can't say much about the salon in general except that it has a nice atmosphere and the receptionist always remembers to call and remind me of my appt. My review is about my stylist, Jeri. She is the best. I let her choose my color and style and I get so many compliments....all the time. I am in my early fifties and no one would know I have gray hair. It looks so natural! And the cut is trendy and shoulder length. People think I am much younger than I am. She listens and really has great intuition about color and cut. You must ask for Jeri and I promise you will be happy! I have, for several years.
Well, for one thing, Textures is a beautiful salon with a warm and friendly atmosphere!! I also know all the stylist and they are very talented and friendly!! Elia (the owner) has been styling my hair for years and I always get the comment "WHO DOES YOUR HAIR"!! The receptionist, Katie, is the BEST!!! Very accommodating, and always calls and reminds me that I have an appointment!! Textures is the best place in town for HAIR and NAILS (Amy does a fabulous manicure, pedicure and fills)!! All around a GREAT experience with TALENTED professionals!!
Textures hair studio really makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed. I loved getting my hair done, by the owner, Elia. She was very helpful in helping me decide on a new hair style and worked with what I was comfortable with. They were all really nice as to offering me coffee, water, and snacks. I enjoy coming here to get my hair done and will definitely be back again!
Great Place for Color!
Textures Salon has stylists who specialize in Color, especially highlights. If you want to be a believable blonde, this is the place to go! Their name is also listed as Texture Hair Design, but it is really Textures. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed. But, you really want to call ahead, the good ones book fast.
Naomi is the best!!!!!!
I've had Naomi cut my hair for the past 5 years, one of which was after I relocated to El Dorado Hills! Yes, once a month I make the drive because she is the best! I have baby fine hair and she does wonders with the cut/color to make it look like I have more hair than I do!
Textures Hair Design & Beauty has lots of happy customers. A Yelp user said he has had nothing but the best experiences at Textures Salon and another member said the stylists are super nice and down to earth. Comments on their stylists are generally great, like this one from a Judys Book member,Naomi is a truly gifted hair designer. Two Insider Pages user also gave reviews. One confidently wrote Give them a try, you won't be disappointed while another user warned others to Ask for the owner or one of the veteran stylist. Don't trust their new stylists...one ruined my hair! The pricing is moderate here, and the quality, you be the judge.
Editorial Review Offering special occasion styling, along with traditional cut, color, highlights and more from this Redken Color Specialist.
Absolutely loved it here!! Szeke was perfect and cut my hair exactly how I wanted it. Top knotch salon-- highly, highly recommend.
I broke a nail yesterday and couldn't leave to Vegas today with one missing. The only issue was that I worked till 730pm and all the nail salons I know we're already going give closed. I yelped to find open locations and came across Texture hair Salon. I was kind of hesitant because their pictures and name itself implies that this business was for hair only but under categories it saids nail. Desperate to just get this nail fix I called and asked if they really did nail and if they're really open till 9. Good news that they do have a nail technician and the receptionist went out of her way to go and ask the technician if she could stay longer for me, they made an acceptation for me! Bad news, they're really open till 8, that's why the receptionist had to ask the technician to stay.
The technician did my fill very quickly and was very nice and helpful in picking the closes polish to my original color. I was lucky enough to have had her stay to fix my nail issue.
I gave this 4/5 stars only because there were no options in acrylic designs (she said that the people around here are more conservative so they don't do designs), and the time was incorrectly (not sure if that's yelp or their responsibility to edit).
Textures gets five stars for my favorite hair stylist, AMY! I just love the way she cuts my hair. Not only does Amy do a great job technically (making sure both sides are perfectly even), I love that she does not rush. Amy is super gentle, thoughtful, and thorough when she cuts my hair, and it shows. She gives me the that cut I want, not the cut that she wants to give. I really appreciate the time and consideration that Amy puts into doing her job.
Added bonus: She is extremely sweet, kind, and gives amazing head massages!
I had such a great experience here! I called one day in advance to get my nails done, and I was lucky to get a reservation the next day. They even accepted 2 pedicure gift certificates from 2002 in exchange for one gel manicure. (so I cannot really comment on their prices) I thought that was very accommodating of them.
Angie is the nicest receptionist! When you walk in she is very friendly and offers you water or coffee or tea. I waited about 5 minutes after my reservation time, but my nails ended up coming out great. I am really happy with the result and I definitely recommend getting french gel sets here, as I know they are going to last a long time. The nail lady was really nice and we talked most of the time she did my nails, which I now find to be very rare.
Great staff, clean salon, and perfect location.
Great experience for a first timer. I was looking for a new stylist in the area and came upon this salon with great reviews for Elia, the owner. I booked my appointment with her and was pleased to find her available that afternoon.
One thing I discovered quickly is that Elia is extremely knowledgeable about hair and her experience shows. She has a confident vibe about her and is quick to point out what your hair needs and what it doesn't. She had Elizabeth blow-dry my hair (I think she was in training) and would still walk over and check her work to make sure my blow dry was going smoothly. I loved that she is so invested in each customer's satisfaction and quality of haircut.
The price is steep, but totally worth it!! I left with a bounce in my step and a gorgeous cut!
Had an amazing experience with Elia. She did an amazing job styling my hair and giving me the look I was shooting for. Definitely nice for a guy to find a salon that can do trims for both guys and gals at a reasonable price. Front desk management is amazing also. I love coming in to visit with Katie who's got to be one of the most fun and optimistic people you will ever meet; go Katie!!
I came to Textures for an appointment with Shirin, my fabulous stylist of choice who had more recently been at Jax Salon. As such, this review is mostly a comparison to Jax.
The waiting area isn't as luxe or spacious as the one at Jax, but honestly I find it less intimidating and a bit warmer. If I had a long wait, I'd probably opt for the larger waiting area, but being that I tend to schedule my appointments, it's rarely that long a wait. The greeter was quite nice, which was a plus--there isn't always one at Jax. Besides being a little smaller and sporting a little more traditional rather than modern decor, it's a decent little salon :)
I am so pleased with my hair color done yesterday by Elia! I always bring a different request and she leaves me so happy!!
This place is great for haircuts. The hair salon has friendly stylists that try to work with you to give you the best and most satisfying haircut. They actually listen to what you share during the initial consulting session. The stylist will also explain and give you helpful styling tips as you get your hair cut.
My experience at Textures was one to remember. I was warmly greeted as soon as i walked in and offered a refreshment, making me feel right at home! The staff is very hospitable and the prices are very reasonable for the great service and quality work offered here. I was very pleased with my haircut and highlights, they took their time and i definitely recommend this salon to anyone looking for a great service by stylists with experience and touch of modern flare.
In four years of getting my hair cut, colored and styled by the owner Elia, I have always been happy with the results. She has worked with me over time to change my hair color, highlight or simply allow me try out different styles. Of course, there have been some that have been less successful, but, hey, hair grows, and you can try something different next time! She is a pleasure to have as a hairstylist and is always very patient with me as she listens to what it is I am want to do with my hair. The salon is also clean, comfortable and professional. Never have I been surprised by the price as everything is very clearly labeled at the front desk.
