Very up to date salon. The people working here know what they are doing!

Hannah Smith

I LOVE my hair!!! I had tailbonelength hair and I saw Jessica (I had rachael before and also loved her) It had been a year since I had my last haircut and I have really back salon anxiety but Jessica is really knowledgeable about what looks good with different hair types. She did just what I wanted and we talked it through before starting. I love the layers she gave me!! The only negative thing was she tends to be really rough when brushing and styling which isnt a problem if you have short hair but if you have long hair, those little hairs that snag hurt really really bad!!!! So yeah heads up if you have long hair just ask them to be gentle :)

Kristi Hendricks

I enjoy my experience at The Velvet Monkey Salon in the Plaza District a lot. I have been there twice and enjoy the unique atmosphere. Mandi Heldreth does a great job cutting my hair and knows what she is doing. Thank you!

My stylist was nice enough but she was dragging things out over multiple appts. I spoke with a friend of mine and she was able to lighten my hair doubly as light and was able to do the color job I wanted in two hours. My stylist wanted several appts. During the first two appointments with my stylists at Velvet Monkey, my hair was the same color and I was out $280 in total. My friend did it all for just over $100

Catie Lewis at the 63rd Street location is THE BEST. She knew exactly what to do with my curly hair and gave me a FANTASTIC cut.

My hair looks amazing. Chelsea is awesome. The rest of the staff is very friendly. Had a blast and came out looking good!

Sean O. Murphy

I like getting my hair cut here. Easy to get an appointment or walk in. Funky or punky styles no problem.

Called in to find a new stylist. Reception was unable to give me any indication as to the political leanings of any of the stylists. I'm going to be spending a lot of time with this person, and then handing them a large sum of money once the job is complete. I don't want to listen to any nonsense. I did not think this would be an issue at this salon, but whatever. 5 stars because I don't want to hurt the business; hopefully this feedback will be well received.

I had a haircut done by a lady in great clips who i asked to trip rhe dead ends and some layers since my hair is thick, she screwed up my hair, i went to see debra wasser and she fixed my hair and i love it! I'll keep coming back to get my haircuts here i was already thinking in chopping off my hair ans she fixed it

S.J. Gokey-Hartsfield

Mandi is great! She always takes the time to talk through a client's plan for their haircut before doing anything rash. The client's happiness is her number one priority and it shows!

William H Miller III

I aways get a great hair cut when I visit the Velvet Monkey Salon. The staff is great and always makes you feel welcome. I make a point to visit when ever I visit Oklahoma City. Please come to Florida!!!

Great customer service

Catie did my hair a while ago and while I loved the cut and the way she styled it she really over processed my hair. It’s been breaking of in chunks since our appointment. Do not let this woman anywhere near you with bleach.

Best in OKC...Debra Rocks!!! in the Plaza Dis.

S.E. Puett

First cut at the VMS. Sophie saved my hair. It was fried the night before by a faulty texturizing experience at another place. My hair had to be cut short & Sophie was my superhero. She gave me a great consultation with lots of encouragement. She was able to give me what I asked for in shape & was still able to salvage length She educated me on my options for growing out & mainraining the new cut. She took a genuine interest in my concerns

Kaitlin Gillespie

I have been to a lot of salons and this place is definitely my favorite. I got my hair styled my Cara. It seriously was the best hair experience of my life. She was completely gung-ho for my ideas and was actually excited to do my hair. She actually cared and that was amazing. She completely understood what I wanted and executed better than I could ever imagine. Wonderful experience. Definitely come here! Everyone is warm and inviting and the building itself is awesome. I'm going to stay with them for a while.

Sophie cut my hair yesterday. Nuthin too complex--just trimming/thinning my combo curly/straight hair. After rocking my svelte mane for a day, I can report that it looks great! No complaints on my end! Bonus: I appreciate that she remembered my girlfriend's name and had fantastic taste in punk music :D

I love the staff, eclectic environment, super creative stylist.

First time going to this salon and I left hurt, disappointed and belittled in the way I was treated. I don't color my hair often and it had been about 6 months since I last touched it. The hairdresser was trying to figure out why I had such dry, brittle hair even though I haven't colored it recently and don't do it often. She kept prying to figure out what was going on so I told her I have Lupus. One of the many symptoms of Lupus is dry, brittle hair. She told me that she wouldn't be able to color my hair the way I wanted without it breaking off in the next month. Which I appreciate her telling me because my hair already in bad shape as it is. I definitely don't want to make it any worse. She seemed to understand my struggle at first, but continually used her "bossy voice" (her words, not mine), saying over and over that I need to use different shampoo and whatnot. Which I understand. Cheap shampoo won't get you high quality results. But I felt belittled when she spoke about my hair and everything I'm doing wrong with it, when it's mostly due to the fact that I have an autoimmune disease and can't control every single symptom. She also goes on about another client who has RA and we were just making conversation and I asked if the woman's hands are starting to deform. I asked this because along with Lupus, I too have RA and deformed hands is a worry of mine. She told me that she's noticed her hands change but that she doesn't believe her client realizes it and went on to say that she doesn't know if she should bring inform the lady or not. What?! Why on earth would you even consider telling someone that? I'm sure the lady knows that her fingers are becoming crooked and it's no ones place to point that out to her. To summarize, I know she had good intentions of warning me about my hair. But I also didn't want to spend over $200 and 5 hours in a chair to be ridiculed and belittled.

First time coming to this place and I've been looking for a great stylish so I tried velvet monkey, and my stylish is Kyle. He did a fabulous job he exactly knows what I wanted for my hair and im Asian so I have a thick long black hair so yes a lots of work. But I'm glad I came to this place and definitely going back. And the place is very eclectic love it.

Tristan is awesome


My girlfriend turned me on to Joan Brinkworth and I think she must be the best hair stylist Ive ever had. She is very knowledgeable about trendy cuts and I always get my fill of political conversation (although she could probably stand less talk about Republicans). I highly recommend Joan at the Velvet Monkey on 16th.

Baron Brian

I've been going to a bunch of cheap haircut places for years. After getting a really bad haircut at another place I decided that it wasn't worth saving a few bucks if I looked like I had been in an accident so I decided to try Velvet Monkey. I am so incredibly glad I did. I scheduled through their online system for the same day and when I went in there was no wait, I went straight back to the chair. My stylist, Catie, was very involved in asking what I wanted done with my hair and listened closely to what I had to say. She had several suggestions and I went with her ideas. She gave me the first good haircut that I've had in years. It's the first time I haven't walked out of a hair place in a long time thinking, "It's OK. It'll grow out I guess." I scheduled a return appointment on the spot and I'm looking forward to being a regular here.

Great experience with Nicki Jones

Unique and very 'punk' aesthetic. Love it

Aaron De Cuir

Decided to try this place out after my previous hair stylist moved out of state. Definitely a cool atmosphere, I had Nikki and she was very accommodating of my somewhat odd requests, hair turned out great my wife loved the cut ( hard to find ppl that can pull off a masculine men's long haircut at least from my experience.) Definitely a great place. Will be my new go-to salon. A++ Thank you Nikki.

Ruth Glenn

The Salon itself is great, the atmosphere is really nice. My stylist was super nice. She did a great job on my cut. But the reason I am giving 3 stars is my color, she wanted to cover my grays (I do not have many) and I said I would prefer not to. But she did anyways, and the color is super orange. I tried to make myself think I would adjust to it, but everytime I do my hair I end up just putting it up. I hate to sound dramatic, but my hair makes me super sad. Can't wait to get my hair fixed.

Tina Waldrip

I absolutely love The Velvet Monkey. I came in to this salon after my hair colorist of 7 years, tragically quit listening to me. I'm so glad I made the decision to choose The Velvet Monkey and my hair colorist Taylor Sparks is Awesome! From my first meeting with her, she explained the process of how to reverese the color I had and she took her time, listened to every word I said and included me in everything to make sure I understood and was accepting of my color. Taylor is remarkable and I would recommend her to anyone who wants beautiful hair color and excellent service. Thank You Taylor for your patience and your phenomenonal service!

I had graying Black hair & Cara blended a mixture that took away the top Grey and left a hint of it in my sideburns, so the attn. to Color it wasn't SO Obvious....Many people have asked me, if i have lost weight , or what I changed...did I shave the mustache and that is the ultimate compliment...Cara...every 21 to 27 days !

The best stylists in okc

Mandie Garc

HORRIBLE first experience in going there. I paid $130 to have my hair ruined and over processed. The lady who was doing my hair kept on pausing to text on her phone and while I was getting my hair dyed she ran to Braums and left the dye in an extra 15 min! What made it so unprofessional is that her and the other stylist next to her were having some highly inappropriate conversations that I would have preferred not to hear! The inside is nice but it definitely lacks professionalism.

Josh Herrera

Nikki is awesome! Came here once and never going anywhere else!

Ken Goad

If you are serious about getting your hair colored.. look no further. The ladies at Velvet Monkey Salon are among the best in Oklahoma!

I've had some good haircuts here, and some bad ones. I've gone three times, and each time the service has been getting a little less than what I expect. At first, Alex did a great job on my hair--she knew just what to do with my super-straight, thick hair and didn't leave it too long or uneven in spots. She was good with the scissors and had a great razoring technique, she was able to thin my hair a little and NOT make me look like a mushroom. The next two times, I couldn't even remember the stylists' names... these were not memorable cuts, and not for the prices I paid. On my second visit, the girl didn't even bother to wash my hair, and just tried to cut it with heavy gel all over my head. I've never had that done at a salon, and I expect a little more for what I paid. I had hair clippings stuck to me for weeks, and my hair just didn't look right--it wasn't trimmed properly in places that had been combed down. After the first washing I started planning my next trip to another salon. Overall the Velvet Monkey is not a bad shop--it just depends on whether you like your stylist and agree with his/her method--like ANY salon. I liked Alex, I wasn't so fond of the others. I might go back, or I might try somewhere else. You won't come away with a bad haircut from this salon, but it might not be what you're expecting. I recommend calling or texting the individual stylist you plan to see and talking about the haircut you want, that way you know what you're getting into.

I wanted a bright red and I left with a darker red than I had expected. They are overpriced. I have seen them do really good colors on others on the website but was dissapointed with mine. Maybe it was just the color I requested but I was a little disappopinted because of all the excellent reviews that I had read I was really expecting to have the color I wanted. The place is nice and the staff is friendly. Just make sure you get the correct stylist.
