WHAT ERICA'S CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
"Got my hair cut by Erika and she was THE BEST!! She walked me through everything she was doing and as a hair dresser told me what would look best. She is very charismatic and we talked through the whole appointment. She gave me exactly what i was looking for. Even though i am on a budget, i had to tip her!
I will come back to her."

"Salon in the Heights is a precious locally owned salon. Erica, my stylist, is simply the best I have found across 3 states I have lived in. She listens, consults and then does a fantastic job. I get color and the brazilian blowout on a regular basis. I have had extensions done in the past also. If you are looking for a comfortable, professional and very reasonably priced salon, Salon in the Heights is for you!!"

"If you want your hair to look beautiful go to Salon in the Heights and let Erica do your hair it’s that simple. She is the hair Goddess!"

"This place is amazing and Erica is a queen. With a few pictures and some vague descriptions she gave me exactly the cut I wanted and she talked me through my nerves on going blonde for the first time. Everyone there is so unbelievably welcoming and friendly, it feels like home after a few minutes. I can’t recommend them enough, and I’m kinda cranky that google only lets me give five stars because they deserve at least 10."

OWNER & STYLIST
In his early 20s, Mark knew that the beauty industry was his career path. Following his move from New Jersey to Atlanta, he opened his first salon. During visits to Houston in the mid-80s, he fell in love with Houston and, in particular, with The Heights. Due to the fact that many of his clients in Atlanta were dependent upon him for their hair needs, he made the decision to keep his salon open and, for the next 12 years, alternated work between Houston and Atlanta.
Mark then determined that The Heights was his permanent home and in 2006, he opened the Salon in The Heights at 1438 Yale Street. Mark's warm and caring personality is felt, not only within the salon, but by each client who passes through the door. He strives to offer his clients the best in all aspects of hair care, and throughout the year attends hair shows and classes in order to learn of any and all new techniques.
Mark is also very active in community matters which benefits The Heights and people from the Houston area. Mark's personality is also characterized by an exuberance appreciated by his clients and as shown in the bright purple and yellow exterior of the Salon in The Heights.
