Let's Have a Discussion...

Yes, you.

You have lustrous, gorgeous hair that enhances your bone structure, brings out the color of your eyes, and flatters your skin tone.

At least, you could.  All you need is the right stylist to reveal it.

Your eyes are intriguing.

Your skin is radiant.

Your smile lights up rooms and warms hearts. 

If you don’t see that beauty when you look in the mirror, let us help you find it.

In a hair rut?  Know you want a change, but not what you want?

We do.  You want a look that:

✓ You can style

✓ Fits into your schedule

✓ Has upkeep you can manage

✓ Flatters your bone structure

✓ Is a great color

✓ Makes you feel stunning

The right style is different for every person.  Your hair’s natural texture and growth patterns help determine the best haircuts for you.  Your bone structure and face shape determine which cuts will look fabulous on you.  Your skin tone and your eye color will look their most radiant with specific colors.  You have the time and the skills for certain styles. 

You know what you want.  You might not know what hairstyle will do all that for you.  We do.

Salon Efrain Story

To understand the mission of Salon Efraín, nestled in the upscale community of River Oaks, Houston, TX, you must take a journey back to Monterrey, Mexico. Imagine a young woman who was bullied for her appearance. Like so many women, her insecurities about her looks impacted her confidence. Although she was beautiful on the inside, her external insecurities left her nervous and unsure. As a result, few people got the chance to know this extraordinary woman.

Enter this woman’s friend, Efraín.

Efraín considered this woman one of his closest friends. When she came to him seeking help to look beautiful for a graduation party, he didn’t hesitate. Already an aspiring stylist, Efraín had honed his skills on people who were already in touch with their beauty. However, his mission became clear: to not just make his friend look beautiful for one evening but to transform her in such a way that she would never again question her beauty.

Working meticulously, Efraín transformed her hair, making it radiant, luscious, and beautiful. He used makeup artistry to enhance her natural features, revealing the beautiful structure of her face. For her, it was a transformation. For Efraín, it was a revelation.


From that pivotal moment, Efraín realized his mission: to reveal the intrinsic beauty in everyone. But he knew he couldn’t do it alone.

Today, Salon Efraín is no longer just about Efraín—it’s about a team of skilled artisans who share his vision and passion. Handpicked for their exceptional skills and commitment to the transformative power of beauty, our team of hairstylists and makeup artists continue to make the Salon Efraín name synonymous with excellence in River Oaks.

Whether you’re looking for transformative haircuts, stunning balayage, or enriching keratin treatments, Salon Efraín and his team are here to make your beauty shine through. It’s not just about looking good; it’s about revealing your true self.

At Salon Efraín, we believe that beauty is a revelation waiting to happen in everyone. And now, armed with a team as passionate as he is, Efraín continues to make this belief a reality—one transformation at a time.

Beauty is more than skin deep.

“Beauty is only skin deep.”

You have probably heard that saying a thousand times or more.  The problem is that it is not true

Beauty is more than skin deep. When you look good, you feel good.  Looking your best can boost your confidence.  It can free up energy to achieve your goals.

Some people think that focusing on beauty is shallow.  We know that when you feel beautiful, you focus less on your looks and more on the moments.

The right haircut or flawless makeup can help you feel beautiful and ready to tackle the world. At Salon Efrain, we help you get there. Schedule an appointment today!

Who do you want to see when you look in the mirror?

Rice village hair salon that believes every women is beautiful

We start all of our client relationships with a consultation.  What look do you want?  What matches your personality?  Are you a high-maintenance diva who needs an appropriately glamorous look?  Are you a casually chic woman who likes a wash-and-wear style that fits your lifestyle but still turns heads?

Anyone can leave a salon looking and feeling fabulous.  When you walk out of a salon, you have spent hours with a skilled professional with the training to make you look great.  That is why so many times someone walks out of a salon with a haircut that they think is great, but that is all wrong for them.

That is why a consultation is an absolute must.  A great stylist does not just create great hairstyles.  A great stylist helps find the right style for each person. 

The real test of a great haircut is how it looks the first time you style it.  Does the cut compliment your face shape and bone structure?  Does it work with your lifestyle?

We take the time to find out. 

We build a relationship and, together, we build the vision you want to see in the mirror. We are a River Oaks hair salon located in the Houston area, schedule your consultation today!
