Trendz by Tammy Black Hair Salon
About this pro
23 years in business
I've been getting my hair care at Trendz By Tammy for 3-4 years now. I am an extremely busy professional and I own my own business, so it's imperative for me to be able to get in and out in a timely fashion. The Trendz by Tammy salon has always been able to accommodate my appointment times, and I've never been late to an event or a meeting. Additionally, I deal with high profile clients, so my hair must have a professional appearance. I have long, very thick natural hair which I get washed and straightened. What takes other salons in the Houston area 4 hours to complete, only takes Trendz by Tammy 2 hours, which is a HUGH PLUS for me. I've been in Houston for 9 years, and I've tried multiple hair dressers (people who burned my hair, or couldn't get it straight, or had bad attitudes, or cost way too much. I even struggled for a while trying to do my hair myself). None of the other salons came close to the quality of service, consistency and value that Trendz by Tammy provides. My hair is so fabulous, most people think I have a perm even though I don't, and my hair has grown tremendously since I've been going there! Even when I feel like rocking a natural style they deliver 100%. I am thrilled, blessed and fortunate that I found Trendz by Tammy salon! I only wish I found them sooner!Dec 17, 2014

- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?The job I am most proud of is when a gentleman brought in his mother who's hair was very matted. She had been in a coma for several months. She was just out of the hospital. She did not want all of her hair cut off but she was prepared for it. I permed and cut a very small about of her hair. She and her son was very pleased. You can view these pictures at trendzbytammy.com
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?My advice is to ask relevant questions to your particular needs when looking for a good hair salon and hairstylist. Do not call and just inquire about prices. Cheapest is most often not best. Ask questions like what type of products do they use, what is their specialities and how long have they been in business. You can even ask is it ok to come by and see the salon. If a hairstylist have a problem or seem irritated by any of these questions, that is not a good sign.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?The wait time in a black hair salon is not always the hairstylist's fault. There are several factors to consider. The very nature of a black woman's hairstyle require time. She often gets precision haircuts, precision curls, dryer time, flat ironing and eyebrow arch. The second thing to consider is clients themself often show up late or don't show up at all. So often I have to pad my appointment book a little to compensate for the loss of lates and no shows. It a balancing act because I don't want my ontime clients to suffer because of what others have done. I try to protect all involved by doing several things. I ask new customer when making appointments, if plans change please call and make me aware. I don't give new customers the first or last apt of the day. I pair new customers with regular client appointments and I have cancellation fees.
