Through a commitment to continuous education, the stylists at Clique Salon have learned that hair fashion is a limitless art. Regional and national seminars furnish their infinite utility belts with evolving techniques, which they then apply to cuts, color treatments, and other services at their Houston studio. However, they do preserve one constant: a commitment to environmental health. Their stations remain free of aerosol and are stocked with natural haircare products, including formulas from Aveda, Modern Elixirs, and Tea Tree. Positioned within these fresh surroundings, the hair gurus begin each appointment with a consultation, during which clients sip on wine or another beverage as they describe what direction they want their locks to take. As the stylists cut, dye, and condition strands, they also dispense aftercare recommendations, enabling patrons to preserve their new color without hiring an art-restoration specialist each week.
Clients at Stylingbar can relax during styling sessions, and not just because they’re sipping flutes of champagne. They can relax because they’re going to walk out with a fabulous blowout that will last for days, thus freeing up their time to do more important things, such as teaching the dog to sing.
The stylists at the salon wash hair and infuse strands with essential oils imported from France for an additional fee. They then create pin-straight locks, sassy curls, braids, and updos for an additional charge as well.

Uncle Funky's Daughter's curly specialists imbue coiled manes with a combination of in-depth curl analysis, frizz-eliminating cuts, and moisturizing conditioners. Sessions begin with an in-depth consultation, in which stylists meticulously analyze hair's natural curl pattern to identify the cut that will best work with each tendril. Stylists then lather up strands in an invigorating citrus-cleansing treatment that removes built-up residue and traces of self-doubt to create a clean surface for a deep-conditioner application, which layers strands in a creamy blend of rosemary and avocado to seal-in smoothness for a frizz-free 'do. Stylists then trim up curls, delicately restructuring curls before instructing patrons in the art of maintenance and moisture management at home.
