In the shadow of Williamsburg condos, the corner shines at Mousey Brown Salon.

I've gone to mousey brown for nearly a decade. I followed after an inexplicable move from hip Bedford ave address hair salon to a sunny corner of run down McCarren Park a few years ago. I didn't really get it. Who knew? Regardless, they do hair really well. I generally take an appointment with anyone, and I have always been happy with the results. I love the glaze hair color they use to tone out my grey; and a haircut. It runs me about $150. with the tip. Somewhat less than other hairsalons in the 11211 zip that are quality salons. So , I do give it a 10 out of 10 rating, for being a first class salon in Brooklyn.

Mousy Brown is my favorite salon.

My hair is almost totally grey, brittle, and willful. I have had my hair colored by several different stylists there. I always play around and change it up with the color, which probably isn't so good for my hair. Mousey Brown's stylists keep my hair in fabulous condition, especially given what I end up wanting to do to it. Light , dark, red , blond , and everything in between. My newest favorite is the INOA permanent hair color. Between that and the treatments they use afterward, my hair has never felt better. And it is a permanent color! I like the way the glazes can feel, but they fade so fast that it isn't so perfect for me. The INOA is magic and worth the extra cost.
