I've always been really picky nervous when it comes to letting someone touch my hair. All the previous times when a "stylist" would cut my hair even to do a simple trim. They would always mess it up! Either cut too much off or make it jagged and uneven... but delaine did an amazing job with my hair trimming it up, adding a few layers to my really long hair and even giving me some nice side bangs. She definatley has a customer for as long as I live in texas!!

Like most people, it took me a while to find Urban Betty, but once I did, I was sold! I even moved away for a year, but when I came back to Austin I came right back to Urban Betty. I love Jamie. The first time I met her she immediately got my style (which is not complicated by any means, but still). And now that I've been having her cut and color my hair for the last two or three years, I love going in where I can say, "Same as last time" and she knows exactly what to do. Plus she's fun to talk to. :)

I have been seeing Veronica for about 4 years now. She has always been on time and super professional. She's also a great girl, very easy and pleasant to talk with. I have always been happy with my hair when she finished. Cut, color....always love it. She's also great about making adjustments if I come back in a month wanting a different shade or when I decide to grow out all of my color....and then put it all back in a year later!
The salon itself is really lovely, comfortable , bright and happy. It's a pleasant place to be.
I Highly recommend Veronica and Urban Betty!

After moving to Austin 3 years ago, I hadn't found a permanent stylist here yet. To say I'm picky is an understatement. So, I was extremely nervous about not only trying someone new, but also getting highlights for the first time ever. But I'm so glad I chose DeLain! I am beyond thrilled with the results! After rambling about what I wanted for 15 minutes, she somehow made sense of it and I got EXACTLY what I pictured in my head. You should go see her. Seriously. :)

When I went to Erin to help me go red, I was worried that it would take a miracle to get me from where I was (brownish-blah) to the bright, vibrant red I wanted. I'd had every haircolor under the sun, and had even occasionally used boxed color when in a money pinch. Despite all that I've put my hair through, Erin was able to formulate a color that was EXACTLY what I wanted. I would (and have) highly recommended her to anyone looking for a great color. She's great with cuts, too, but it was her skill with the color that really impressed me and has me coming back (tonight!)

It took me 3 years of going to several hair salons and stylist in Austin until I finally found the one! Urban Betty is a wonderful salon, both in its style and service! I am an avid colorist, I have done everything and anything to my hair and have not been satisfied with a color. After going to Ryan at Urban Betty I no longer need to worry about what my hair will look like because I know it will look amazing! For the first time I have highlights/lowlights and color that look totally natural! The salon is beautiful and all the workers are very friendly. Overall I loved my first experience there!! Oh and the 20% discount was great!

It was my first time I had went to Urban Betty.
I found an awesome online coupon from city savings for my first time going, 20% off.
My stylist was Jamie, she was amazing, very fresh and funky. She did a great job, and I was very happy with the results. She exceeded my expectations. She has a great personality, and talked with me the entire time. On top of that the salon is lovely, and I got a student discount. Overall I loved my first experience there!

I have been going to Liza for 3 or 4 years. Over this time, she has convinced me to make a few changes here and there, and they've all been great ever since.

PROS:
- Creative yet practical.
- Quality conversation.
- Always friendly and upbeat.

CONS:
- Wish I would have started with her when we moved to Austin 13 years ago!

I moved to Austin knowing no one. I saw people whose hair I admired and ask them who was their colorist/stylist. Of the 3of the people I asked referred me to Liza. I love the natural& multidimensional look of blonde she gave me. She didn 't over lighten it like some no vices do. I also sent my husband to her & she gently suggested & convinced him to change his circa 1992 hair style. He looks 10 yrs younger!

Jeni is awesome!! I had a bad experience at another salon and i decided to try Urban Betty because it has such great reviews. I told Jeni exactly what i wanted and she did it! Most hair dressers are "know it alls" and never listen to what you want. Jeni rocks i finally found a place in Austin that i love!! She gave a great scalp message too!

I'm so happy to have found this little salon tucked away in a great shopping complex. For my first appointment, I chose Liza--solely based on the rave reviews from City Search. I am SO happy I chose her! I walked away from my first appointment absolutely thrilled with my cut and highlights. Liza does an exceptional job. I am so impressed with her skills--her fingers are magic when she does a haircut and I have to say, it's the best haircut I have ever had and I have been to some of the best salons in Vancouver. I've had people I don't know approach me and ask me who does my hair and my family and friends say it's the best cut they've ever seen on me. I've been completely happy with every experience I've had at Urban Betty and especially with Liza!!!

Urban Betty has a great location, excellent services, and I always have an enjoyable time. Liza does amazing highlights and hair cuts, I am always thrilled when I leave. The color always turns out the way I want it. I have gone to her for years, and I have always left happy. I recommend Liza and Urban Betty Salon to everyone. The atmosphere is fun and relaxing, and the people are great.

I got my highlights done by MELANIE and it looks AMAZING!!! Everyone keeps complimenting me on my hair! Even my husband who hardly ever notices or says anything when I get my hair done keeps saying how much better it looks!! I love my hair, loved her and I am definitely going back to her from now on!!

When I moved to Austin I was a little nervous about trying to find a stylist as good as the one I left behind in Maryland. I finally found Urban Betty salon and booked an appointment with Melanie at random but I am so glad I did!! I have been to see her a few times for some color therapy and have loved the result EVERY time!! Not only is the color amazing, but her cuts are great too!! I recently got pregnant and have been unable to color my hair but thats no problem, Melanie gives awesome cuts and her prices are so reasonable!!
She not only does an amazing job as a stylist but she is also really friendly. I don't know about you but I hate going to salons and having someone do your hair and not speak to you the whole time. That is totally not her style, She is personable and knowledgeable, really what more can you ask for? So if you are new to the area or not and looking for a great stylist, go to Urban Betty and ask for Melanie, you will not regret it!!

Jeni did such a great job with my hair... It's been 2 months and I still get compliments on it! I'm new to Austin and finding a new hair salon is always hard, but I've found mine here. My mom is even considering driving from Dallas to get hers done :)

Sarah came highly recommended and she is incredibly nice and personable; I really enjoyed my time in her chair. The salon itself is tucked away like a secret hideaway and is very comfortable and stylish.

However, I have to rate the whole thing one star because, well, I hate my haircut. I tried to keep an open mind and let it grow on me, but it hasn't ... and I'm literally crying right now.

The problem: it looked great when she blow dried and straightened and fussed with it. In my real, low-maintenance, every-which-way wavy world, it looks horrible. And I'm furious about the bangs. It took me so long to grow them out and CHOP, back to the awkward growing out phase. And I paid for this?? Effing hell.

At least I used the citysearch 20% off coupon.

I've been looking for a great hair colorist in Austin for a long time. I went to Urban Betty this week and FINALLY found one! Delain did an amazing job on my hair color and was very knowledgeable about hair color. She did exactly what I wanted and it's by far the best color I've had in Austin! Thank you Delain!

I have followed Stephanie for 6 years to wherever she has worked, but Urban Betty is such a great salon that she has no plans of moving! Steph was referred to me by a longtime and dear friend who has a slew of fam members (some in Houston!) and other friends who also love Steph. Similarly, I've been so impressed with Stephanie that now I have a "gaggle" of friends and family who use her exclusively as well.

Besides Stephanie's very professional yet extremely laid- back and sensitive personality (and GREAT British phrases), she is amazing at determining what REALISTICALLY works best for each INDIVIDUAL client's hair type, maintenance schedule, and daily routine. Her hair cuts are so good that they last forever, even if one chooses to grow their hair out before seeing her again. Regarding color, she delivers, and when one is trying to determine a shade, she is great at using your skin tone to assist with the decision.

Stephanie also styled (updo) my hair for my bridal portraits as well for as my wedding (and also my mom's and sister- in- law's) and did a fantastic job.... even at 6:30 am for the portraits!

I can not say enough great things about Steph- you just have to try her once- not only will you find your stylist for life, but you will also meet one of the best people around. Don't wait until the last minute- call in advance!

I have been growing my hair to donate to Locks Of Love for 5 years....finally decided to cut it off and was a little scared. Chose this salon/stylist from the high ratings on Citysearch and was not disappointed. Amanda made cutting 11 inches off my hair a wonderful experience. Great cut and I will be returning when I get the courage to go even shorter.

Walking in, I was impressed with how hip and cute the inside of the salon was. My hairstylist Liza was the best! I have very thin and cottony blond hair that I've never liked, and Liza gave me the best cut ever! For the first time in my life I had a haircut that I liked. I strongly recommend Liza AND Urban Betty Salon... you won't be sorry!

Went for a color and ended up with bright roots, 20 shades lighter thant the rest of my hair. They tried to fix it but it still didn't look good. I was very disappointed in the final result after being there for about 5 hours. I thought they were over priced.

I've seen Jamie at Urban Betty 4 or 5 times for haircuts and color. She's given me an edgy but easy to manage haircut that really suits me. Her color work is fun, I'm glad she's versatile with her color ideas. Best of all, she's friendly and happy, so it's always fun to see her again! Thanks so much Jamie! :)

Jaime is the BEST hair dresser and colorist there is! Believe me? I had been a client of my sister, who is also a hair dresser for years. And consistently been unhappy with creativity or lack there of, her attitude about what SHE wanted to do with my hair? not me, and her lack of knowledge. I had heard that Urban Betty was one of if not the best salon in town. I decided to fire my sister as my hair stylist and finally see someone knew. I picked Jaime from her profile online? she oozes creativity, warmth and patience. Nervously, I went to her that first time and she did something my sister never did? sit down with me and listen to what MY goals and desires were for my hair. And she has been doing exactly that ever since. The last three times I went to see her I requested something totally different from the previous time, and each time she said it was no problem, had a can-do attitude, and each time my hair was a knock-out! She is such a kind person, easy to connect to, and on top of today??s latest techniques. I really appreciate her work, she has transformed the way I see myself with, finally, a hair cut and color I can be proud of? that??s totally me, executed perfectly by Jaime! Believe me, it took some guts to cut the cord between me and my sister as my stylist, but? if anyone out there is staying in a stylist relationship with someone you feel ??obligated? to, all I can say is get out! It is worth it if you??re not 100% happy. And 100% happy is what Jaime will make you feel!

I have been getting my hair cut from Megan for many years. I own Teo Gelato in the same shopping center and I have to say it is such a nice addition to the center. Everyone who works at Urban Betty is friendly and fun. The establishment is clean and all the hairstylist know what they are doing. Give Urban Betty a try. You won't be disappointed but if you are the owner is on site and she will assist you with what you need.

Stephanie at Urban Betty has a great eye for color and cuts. Great attention to detail, always on time, really listens to what you say! I have been going to Urban Betty and Stephanie for more than two years and I have been very happy. The salon is cute and friendly and prices are very reasonable.

I can't imagine a nicer atmosphere in which to spend an hour getting a hair cut nor a more affable stylist than Sierra at Urban Betty. From the moment she starts combing the wet hair till it is blown-dry, Sierra makes a study of what I want and how best to make it work with how my hair grows. I love a cut that I can either let go free after washing or one that i can style. Sierra is focused and cares what I want to have done. She has also colored a friend's hair who said that no one had been able to get the color right. With her flaming red hair and ready smile, plus her interesting conversational abilities, Sierra is a unique experience in the realm of stylists. She is a stylist I can trust to make every effort to achieve a great cut.

I went today and got a great color and cut by Sierra. Urban Betty is in a great shopping area, easily accessible. Plenty of parking. Sierra was very friendly and talented. She colored and cut my hair exactly as I wanted it. She didn't rush and made sure to ask me questions about my style and offer advice. The entire staff seemed very friendly and I saw a lot of people leaving very happy. The prices vary depending on who does your hair. Citysearch has a coupon for 20% off for new customers and I used it and saved which I happily gave back as a tip. I will definitely be back to Urban Betty.

I have been going to Amanda for about a year now and I adore her. Not only does she do the best color I have ever had, we have so much fun while she is doing it. I always walk out looking fab. My cut and color are always modern. I am not sure if this matters to you in a stylist but Amanda is just a really good person. I consider her a friend and she will always hold a special place in my heart after she did my wedding day hair. It was PERFECTION and she even texted me later to give me some much needed encouragement. Love her.

I was super nervous about getting my hair done, first of all, because I'm very picky about hairdressers and secondly because I decided to get highlights and I had never colored my hair before. I didn't really know what I wanted before I walked in the door and asked Liza for her opinion and she gave it to me honestly and frankly! I definitely appreciated that and absolutely felt at ease with her. My hair color and cut are both amazing! I'm growing my hair out and Liza really gave me the perfect cut and I think it will grow out very well. Basically, she gave me exactly what I was looking for without me giving her any direction. She gave me a flattering cut and color! The products used are great, the salon is very cute and relaxed. Go to Urban Betty! It's worth the money (cuts are too expensive!).

Stephanie is the BEST! Super cute salon, really nice stylist, GREAAATTTT haircut and great highlights! She did such a good job and it was a really great experience. I've found my salon in Austin, that's for sure. I'll never go anywhere else! A bit pricey, but worth every penny I think. :)

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I'd like to profess my love for Urban Betty and Jamie, the talented & fun stylist extraordinaire. Like many others, I was new to the area, searching for a reliable and affordable stylist. I found Jamie and was thrilled after my first visit (with both the cut AND color)...the 3 visits that followed left me equally satisfied. I get complimented on my hair regularly and owe it all to Jamie! The salon atmosphere is perfect as well. Urban Betty is chic without being stuffy--I always feel comfortable and know I'll be getting an uptown 'do without uptown prices or attitude. I am THRILLED to have found you, Jamie & Urban Betty--keep up the great work and thanks for keeping my hair fabulous! xoxo, jennifer

It took me almost four years to find a good hair stylist in Austin and now that I?ve found Lisa at Urban Betty, I won?t go anywhere else. Lisa is an artist when it comes to hair! She knows exactly how to give me the look that I want. I?ve had so much fun getting new looks that I?ve been there three times in the last four months. Before I went to Lisa, the only person that I would trust with my hair was my stylist back in San Diego, and I?ve been living in Austin for four years, (a long time to go without a new look). The best part about Lisa is that she is very honest about what styles will and won't work for me. At first I wanted bangs, but this would never work with my cowlick. I went from my really long flat boring hair to the cutest little bob. She even showed me how to style my hair myself so that I could have that perfect look every day! I would certainly recommend Lisa to everyone!

I went to Urban Betty last week on a recommendation from a friend. I had read such great things about Liza on this site I decided to see what the fuss was all about! I went in for an all over color and cut. I went in with fairly light blonde hair and came out with the most gorgeous chestnut brown! She knew exactly what would look good on me! As for my cut we cut several inches off to form the cutest "bob" style haircut! It's so easy to manage and just really looks great! I couldn't be happier that I listed to my friends advice and saw Liza. I will definitely be back! Thanks so much Urban Betty and Liza!

I went to see Jamie after I spent $600.00 and 8 months trying to fix my hair color. I usually have it different shades of blonde and after one day or dying it myself, I needed help. So after months and months and dollar after dollar was spent at other salons, I gave up.
Then I found the BEST salon listed in CitySearch in Austin, which was Urban Betty. I read the reviews and had to get in with Jamie. Two weeks later I was there.
It was amazing. She is amazing. She fixed my hair and for a fraction of the cost I had spent in the past.
Please, if you are looking for a new stylist or just a quick haircut or color, SEE HER. I adore her. She is now my forever stylist in Austin!

I am not the type of gal who is willing to drop alot of money on a haircut at some fancy salon. Although, as I get older, I am discovering the importance of finding someone with whom I can work, someone who will listen to me and really hear me. I am looking for a professional who can hear about me and what I generally want/need and be creative to come up with her own unique cut for me that reflects my style and personally.

I SCORED BIG when I met Jamie at Urban Betty!! FIrst off, I called at 10am on New Years Eve hoping by some off chance she'd have an opening. The reception stated tht she did not, but she would talk to Jamie because Jamie is known to stay later to fit people in. Jamie called back within 20 minutes saying yes, definitely, she could fit me. I find that to be graet customer service for a new client!
Not only is Jamie great at what she does but she is down to eart and personable as well. I felt right at home alongside her in her jeans and t - not dressed to the 9s overdone (in all black) with oveerpowering smells of perfume, makeup, or hairspray.
Jamie is a real person who understands real people's lives. That's why she offers a special discount rate for students. Living in a college town, this caught my attention. Jamie said she does this because "I remember being broke and looking for a decent place to go get my hair done." She is down-to-earth, yet just as chic, saavy and hip as you expect from a young stylist.
I ended up with a super cute, hip, chunky cut that got me compliments all night - and even a special someone for a NYE kiss. Way to go! I will certainly be going to Jamie again and again. In fact, I think I may have finally settled down with one person...it's been a long time since that happened!

Go see Jamie! She's the BEST! :)

So after reading all the reviews of Urban Betty, I made my appointment with Liza expecting her to appear in a sparkling bubble of magic with a huge opalescent dress, a wand and a tiara, ready to weave her magic spell upon my hair.
Wrong!
I got a down to earth, funny,normal, talented artist who takes her craft and her job and making her customers happy very seriously. I got a great haircut, even with some challenges that I presented to her. I am cuter going out than I was coming in, and that's what it's all about, right?

I moved to Austin about 4 months ago and had been wanting to change my hair to a red color. After reading the pages of reviews for Urban Betty I made an appointment with Liza and we set up a meeting to see what we could do to my hair. I have always found pictures of what I wanted my hair to look like but never had anyone be able to do that...til I met Liza. Now I refuse to get my hair done anywhere else. Urban Betty is the greatest salon and very cute and trendy. Not only is the staff friendly and amazing, Liza is the best hair stylist I've ever had. If you are picky about getting your hair done like I was, I strongly recommend Urban Betty!!!!!

I set an appointment with Jamie 3 weeks out so I'd be good to go for the Holidays. However, I forgot I was an event planner and had Holiday parties last Saturday. Duh! Anyway, I called the Wednesday before my scheduled appointment and asked if she had any cancellations for Saturday and she didn't. However, she actually offered to come in on Sunday and do it.----I took her up on it and my hair looks fabulous!!!! Thanks Jamie!
