20 Best Hair Salons in Austin

Following our popular post on Delaware Hair Salons, we present the best hair salons in Austin Texas as many moved in there and had difficulties finding good salons:

#1. Salon Sovay

#1. Salon Sovay

#1. Salon Sovay is best for haircut with a trustworthy hairdresser. Rating: 4.7 stars from 59 ratings.

Savoy is known as a miracle worker for hair. People with all kinds of problems like long, fine hair with constant flyaways can be cut out to make it look luscious, healthy and beautiful.

Savoy is also full of so much wisdom and positive energy, it is a joy to sit in her chair. Some of her staff, like Kelly, also gained praises in reviews with people going for over a year or even Mom group.

After a bad color/cut experience at another salon, I found Kelly through a Mom group who did an amazing job correcting the color and fixing the cut. Would recommend 10/10!

I was recommended to have my client visit Kelly Magee-Tate at Salon Sovay and her work is amazing! Not only is she super professional, flexible, and a joy to work with, but her ability to bring life back into previously damaged/bad hair color jobs is uncanny.

#3. L7 Salon is best for being worth the price. Rating: 4.7 stars from 86 ratings.

L7 Salon is also clean, friendly, timely and provide all-around services. Some regulars have been having their haircut there for over seven years.

Dennae Rae listens to what I want, executes perfectly, and lets me come by in between services for a quick bang trim. Every staff member I have encountered here has always been friendly, timely, and provides all-around incredible service. 

Always amazing and worth every penny. Go to Dennae Rae and you will not be disappointed. Salon is always super clean

I wanted to donate my hair and I knew I would have been left with a very short hairstyle which I was afraid of. But, as soon as I came in I felt very safe with Elizabeth my hairstylist. She knew what hairstyle would look good with the short hair and it turned out really good. I never go back to the same hairstylist usually but this place and this stylist is different, she was amazing!!!

Lexie is awesome! She cut my hair and helped me find new shampoo and conditioner. My hair looks and feels great!

The service is professional and so worth the price. I really liked that they don't charge extra for the length. I recommend this place to everyone. Thank you!

Erin did an amazing job! I am pleased with her work. I went in for a color correction and she was very nice and sweet and made me feel comfortable.

Jessica is sweet, funny, honest, and amazingly talented. I always love my cut and receive several compliments (admittedly, I don’t style my hair so all credit is Jessica’s!) The receptionists are attentive and super transparent about cost/scheduling. Super cute and fun atmosphere.

Jess is by the far the best stylist to have ever laid hands on my head. She goes the extra mile to communicate with you but is so personable! I really recommend letting her work her magic and show your locks some love.

Bre was very professional and made my daughter feel comfortable the whole time. She felt like a princess. She said she wants to grow her hair again and give it to another little girl!

Samantha was super nice and she did a great job on my hair. Such a cute shop too! Highly recommend.

Great salon they actually care about your hair and want it to grow and be healthy. Not in it just for quick money- plus it’s pretty reasonably in price. With great advice, conversation and atmosphere you’ll feel right at home. Plus they work efficiently.

Used to sit for 5 hours for a partial highlight from another salon. When I was in and out in less than 1.5 hr I was hooked!

#8. ROAR

#8. ROAR

#8. ROAR is best for cutely designed haircut with experienced hair stylists. Rating: 4.8 stars from 122 ratings.

ROAR salon is clean and cutely designed with 2 great stylists Roxy and Pepper that garnered many great reviews.

Roxy was amazing! I was very nervous about chopping off my hair but she made the experience so great. She made me feel comfortable and talked me through whole process.

Roxy also took the time to get to know me and my hair routine to tailor my haircut into something that I could manage easily. I was very grateful for that. I walked out of the salon truly obsessed with my hair.

Pepper has cut and styled my hair twice now and she is the best! She has the best approach for cutting layers and she's very talented! She's also very kind and considerate and I am so glad

If you’re looking for a haircut, Pepper is the best! She’s an expert and will help you achieve your hair goals. I always appreciate her honest opinion and recommendations, and never leave disappointed. You’ll be in good hands with her!

Being new to Austin and having two terrible experiences before finding Roxy…. Let me say the following words are 100% truth and here to help you (and your hair) in your search, as well! I cannot say enough amazing things about Roxy! I have followed Roxy from her previous salon to Roar and I must say, my experience with her at Roar was the best one yet.

Roxy at Roar is absolutely amazing! She is very personable and always makes me feel super comfortable. My hair was an a total wreck and now, thanks to Roxy, looks great and is healthier than it has ever been.

#9. Method Hair

#9. Method Hair is best for female cuts with enjoyable conversations. Rating: 4.6 stars from 194 ratings.

Method Hair cuts is suitable for people wanting great conversations and not just fuss-free haircut given the price.

I have wavy hair and always go to Doug for a new inspiration, a new hair cut, twice I gave him a few words and he knew exactly where to take us.

My allegiance is primarily to Sarah Statham. Luckily she's the owner! And it shows! She's excellent at what she does, she's creative, always figuring out ways to improve or learn more, and she's a fantastic person!

Sarah has helped me look great through long hair, short hair, bleached hair, and post-partum hair loss.

Jordan cut my hair exactly how I wanted it, was very informative and gave me a great scalp massage as well! Having your hair cut by someone new to you can be a nerve wracking experience but Jordan made me feel very comfortable and communicated with me the whole time. I’ll happily go back!

Melissa is a gem and does absolute wonders to your hair.

Audrey as my stylist and she was the sweetest. She was so helpful and kind, even when the shop was busy. The shampoo girl was always very sweet. Everyone I talked to was just overall very kind.

Kellie King was so patient, helpful and fun (as every great stylist should be!) as we talked through hair color and style for my super thin, fine hair. I really love how everything turned out - my color looks amazing! Excited to go back in a few weeks for my touch up. I highly, highly recommend!

Holly did an amazing job on my hair! I had a few inches cut off and wanted curtain bangs with layers. She did not disappoint, and I couldn't have been happier with the result! The vibe of this location is very nice and they also have coffee and water available while you wait. I will definitely come back for color later!

#11. Golden Soul Salon

#11. Golden Soul Salon

#11. Golden Soul Salon is best for Instagram-designed salon. Rating: 4.8 stars from 96 ratings.

Golden Soul Salon can be found on Instagram and is probably the most beautiful, open and bright salon. You often will need to book well in advance and it is a little pricey, for good reason. They are awesome and you get what you pay for.

Nicole was extremely welcoming and great to talk to. I showed her a few pictures and she did magic on my hair. She made my hair look better than it ever has looked. I will for sure be a client of hers for as long as she will have me! Definitely recommend this salon.

Holly was great and I will be going back. Highly recommend if you need a new salon, the shampoo experience alone was worth going for.

I have been going to Nicole for over 4 years and she is awesome. She knows my hair so well and I trust her completely.

#12. Love + Roots

#12. Love + Roots

#12. Love + Roots is best for adorable salon with good all-rounded services. Rating: 4.5 stars from 135 ratings.

Lindsey and Paige did a great job on my hair. I was new to the Austin area and was looking for a new stylist when I saw some awesome reviews about Lindsey at Love + Roots. I

Paige did my blowout after and it turned out fabulous, she took her time and the blowout last lasted all day.

I had fibro blast done on my face with Kali. I super appreciate the time she took to look at my skin and the way it reacts before making her recommendations, and then help me understand why she chose what she chose. She made me feel comfortable immediately and didn’t make me feel like I was just another ticket number for the day. 

Paige did a great job on my bleach retouch and gave me a creative spin on my signature pink color. Loved all the boutique items available in addition to the quality hair products they carry.

Kiyita blew me away with her pure talent! Everything from evaluating my hair, shampooing, the glorious head massage, and cut. She listened to my concerns and desires. She went above and beyond. 

Lindsey is amazing! She cuts my wavy/sometimes curly hair better than anyone I have ever been to. I love how she starts with a dry cut and then does a wet cut after shampooing. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends, but especially my wavy haired ones!

#13. KaRu Salon (located inside Third Space Salon)

#13. KaRu Salon (located inside Third Space Salon) is best for having a cut with a great stylist. Rating: 4.6 stars from 113 ratings.

Kari was the one who worked on my hair, and she did an amazing job. I had half my hair split dyed violet and then covered with black dye. She was able to lift the black and the violet pigment out of my hair in one session, allowing me to get my hair re-dyed back to my natural color (dark brown), without any weird pink undertones. She also cut my hair and did a great job at giving it shape and movement, especially since I have a ton of hair. 

Kari listened to what I wanted, and then went way beyond my expectations!! I look ten years younger, and had a wonderful experience. Love my hair and love Kari.

I have been going to Kari at Karu for 6 months for my men's haircut. She has been styling my hair so I can grow it out long. She is great at explaining the process and walking me through different products that work well for me. I love my new style. Thanks Kari!

Kari goes above and beyond. She is a master of her craft! The salon is super cool with a great vibe and layout. Always a great expereince!

#16. Craig Piatti Salon

#16. Craig Piatti Salon is best for coloring and stylist hair. Rating: 4.8 stars from 37 ratings.

Natalie, the stylist that serviced me, was incredible! She was so kind, patient, and had the most soothing aura/energy ever! The first time she applied the toner, the ash didn’t take as much so I walked back in and apologetically asked if she wouldn’t mind doing it again… and she did in a heartbeat and even told me not to apologize! This place is the best! Can’t wait to schedule another appointment in the near future! 

Craig turned my mess of split ends and burndt hair into a miracle! The whole team is just phenomenal -kind, thoughtful and talented. You cannot go wrong booking any of the stylists- I promise you that the results are going to be amazing.

Natalie did a wash and cut for me and I am so happy with the results. Great people, great service with stimulating conversation, and an all around wonderful environment.

Mykaela is a sweetheart and made me feel at home like I had been going to them for years.

Ren is friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Throughout my experience with her she gave me so many helpful hair care tips I should have wrote them down. She even helped me save money on a color we found out wouldn't be compatible with my hair.

Bella Salon provides great hair styling, average hair dye services but a tad pricey cost. 

Keith listens and does what you want with your hair. I feel like a new person and love what he did. He also made me feel comfortable the whole time. We chatted comfortably and he was engaged in the conversation. I've gone to other places before where you sit in silence and it's uncomfortable.

The stylist that are good at dry, curly haircuts and highly recommended to feel welcomed and valued with top notch professionals and genuinely nice people.

Sarah cared about the end result and made my hair look and feel great. She also helped me understand the steps to make my hair look good at home. Will be back!

Sara added shape to my hair without sacrificing too much length, as I am trying to grow it out. She even showed me how to style my curls.

Emily did a great job on the color. It didn't turn out exactly like we discussed after my visit, so I contacted the salon to ask for a color tweak (which is always a bit awkward to do).

Emily was really easygoing and even gracious about tweaking the color, which I really appreciated.
