I have been going to Monica for almost 8 years. I get my hair highlighted and cut and I always leave feeling great! I know this is silly, but I didn't really want to post a review online because I was worried that eventually I wouldn't be able to get an appointment with her if she got too busy. But my husband kind of encouraged me since he is also a business owner who appreciates reviews. So here I am! Monica makes me feel beautiful! She also works around my crazy work schedule.

Thank you so much for your review! I love having you as a client.

I had always wanted to try the Brazilian Blowout Treatment but had been hesitant because of the cost. I purchased one of those Groupon type of deals online for another salon's Brazilian Blowout service and they nearly fried my hair off! I was so disappointed with the results and later learned that they were not a certified salon. Not too long after I ran into a friend that normally had curly kinky hair and she had beautiful shiny STRAIGHT hair! I asked her what her secret was and she said that Monica at Marbella Hair had recently performed the Brazilian Hair treatment on her. I quickly booked an appt for a month later with Monica hoping for the best but getting ready for a potential repeat failure. Boy was I wrong! My hair came out beautiful, straight and healthy looking. Monica has a client for life. I think that the moral of the story is that Monica fixes the mistakes of other salons and that you get what you pay for :)

Unfortunately I cannot give a good review of this experience. I found this salon on the internet when I was looking for a reputable salon to get the Keratin hair treatment. This was one of the first ones to come up in the austin area with good reviews. I called to make the appt and spoke with Monica. Literally one of the first things she said is that I would need to give my credit card number over the phone to hold the appt. I told her I didnt feel comfortable with that so we still booked it. The next day I got a call from her salon mgr Romeo who told me it was their policy to get that to hold the appt. at first I said no and told him to give it to someone else as he told me that many others on their list would take it. Then I looked at their website again and decided to take the chance ( I really wanted it done) and said I would give it to him. I also noticed some forms on the website that he said he would email over and to put my card number on them and email them back. I asked again did he want the card number over the phone he said no just put it on the form. When I got the form I wasnt able to type on it to send it back, unfortunately Im not the most computer savvy. I assumed if there was any issue I would hear back. Fast forward to Monday morning @ 7:30 am I drive in rush hour traffic from north Austin to get there not exactly sure where it is, then call the number, Moncia answers the phone and tells me they gave my appt to someone else. She said they sent another email that I never saw to have me give the card number. I asked her why they didnt just call like before. I have over 35000 emails in my account I dont always see them unless I know they are coming. Needless to say she said she was sorry but offered no remedy for the situation. They were so worried about their time being wasted that they ultimately wasted mine. Whats the value in that? I have never been treated so poorly by anyone in the beauty industry. I give this experience minus 5 stars.

It was by sheer luck alone that I stumbled into Monica's salon 6 years ago when I moved to Austin. At the time I was incredibly nervous about putting my delicate and perfectly blonde locks into the hands of someone new. However, Monica is a hair care genius! She matched the color perfectly on my first visit and has been taking excellent care of my hair ever since. Great conversation and great prices make my visits even more enjoyable and to top it all off she is speedy - so I'm back to work in a flash. Girls, if you're looking for great stylist with a no non-sense approach to great hair - you should definitely make an appointment with Monica right away!

Pros: Relaxing, Professional, Great Results

I had read all of these great reviews about Monica at Marbella Hair Studio regarding the Yuko permanent hair straightening, but I was a little disappointed that my hair was not healthy enough for the process. Luckily, Monica suggested the Keratin Smoothing Complex (same as the Brazilian Blowout) as an alternate treatment which would not only take the kinks out of my natural curls, but would actually strengthen my hair while leaving it feeling silky. The results are awesome! Even two weeks later, my hair is still so soft, smooth and manageable. Thank you so much Monica.

I have lived in thirteen different cities and I have always said that one of the most difficult things about a move is finding a new stylist! When I first came to Austin I tried one salon and went 5-6 times but it seemed no matter what I said or did, each cut was worse than the last. A friend recommended Monica and I have been her client ever since. She is extremely professional with an ability to hear what her clients want and translate that into a really good haircut. I appreciate that she is prompt with her appointment times as well as responding quickly to my calls for appointments. I am delighted that in Austin I have finally found a really great stylist!

My hair is very important to me as I have to see Monica every 4 weeks as I have been blessed with gray hair. Monica has done a wonderful job with my hair color and hair cut. She is not only an awesome hair dresser, but is a great person to talk to. We are both working moms and like to compare our boy?s stories. She is very easy going and always listens to my concerns with my hair. She is very straight forward and I really like that. I have always been happy with my hair and I love her hours.

Monica has been my personal beauty advisor for several years. I've done my aging gracefully with her intuitive guidance. This being said, I'll explain. After years of coloring, I started noticing those"silver strands" in my hair. I liked what I saw but....... Monica helped me thru those long months of out-growth with patience and a slight touch up or two. She seems to have an innate knowledge of color and style, not to mention the wonderful head massage while shampooing. The salon is always clean and very organized. Monica, herself, is a lovely, professional person. I thoroughly enjoy my visits.

Monica has been doing my highlights for years. She does a great job and is reasonably priced. I use email to make my appointments--which I love. She always works with my schedule which is not easy since I am a flight attendant. On top of all of that, she is easy to talk to, so time just flies by when I'm there!

I randomly found Monica through an internet search after moving to Austin. Since then, I have never visited another salon! Monica's work is always impeccable and above reproach. I leave feeling absolutely satisfied. After four years of faithfully going to Monica for everything, I moved to Lubbock. I still, however, wait until I visit Austin to have my hair cut and styled. I couldn't imagine going to anyone else!

I found out about Monica through a friend at work whose hair always looks great. I have thin, fine hair and have had a terrible time finding someone who can cut it to where it looks nice and easy to fix at 5:00a.m. Monica has done a great job with my hair and does not charge a fortune like everyone else. She is great to talk to and always on time.

Thanks Monica!

Monica is fantastic with cuts and color / highlights. The colors are vibrant, shiny and they blend so well. I'm always thrilled with the results. Her rates are really reasonable and that allows me to maintain highlights w/o going broke. I followed Monica from her previous salon and would follower her if she moves again - she's that good! Oh - all this and she's really sweet and funny. It's like hanging out with a great girlfriend - plus I get my hair refeshed!

Where do I begin. I have been color treating my hair for ever and so my hair was way over processed. When I came to Monica over a year ago, my hair was a serious mess. Monica not only treated and repaired my hair, she helps me maintain the most beautiful color(s)! I love my hair foiled with multiple colors and she does a fantastic amazing job. Thank you Monica!

If you are looking for a hair dresser with creative ideas, great hours, awesome personality then Monica is the girl for you. I myself am very picky about my hair as my color usually turns black if left on too long. Monica does an excellent job and really listens to what you want and not what she wants. Give her a try and I promise you will not be disappointed.

I chose Monica based on the reviews I had read, the easy location, and quality for your dollar. (I'm a teacher also!) I was so nervous about "hi-lighting" my silvery hair. With a head full of white hair, dramatic highlights could have been quite shocking. Yet, I'm young(ish) and bravely walked through the door. The first person I saw was Monica's previous client and I could not help but stare and proclaim, "I want that hair!" Beautiful, natural looking highlights with the cut I'd been wanting but not getting for years! My nervousness quickly dissipated.

My highlights are subtle and beautiful - just the thing for a first timer and the cut is perfect. It's so rewarding to have a great hair experience after years of mediocre. Monica is easy to talk to, she listens and gives intelligent feedback without being pushy. The whole experience was pleasant but the hair is happy, happy! Even the "morning after"....with bedhead, it's the best hair I've had on my head in many years.
I hated the whole finding a new stylist thing and living through the ho-hum bobbed haircuts. Thank you Monica for giving great style and comfort to even those of us on the lower economic chain. Teachers deserve to look hip too!

Monica's been taking care of me for about 3 years now, I think. I was so sick of spending almost $200 on my hair every month and a half when a girlfriend of mine referred me to Monica. I don't know who to thank more: my friend or Monica! It's putting it lightly to say Monica's rates are affordable, but I couldn't be happier with her work. She cuts and colors me very naturally, which is important to me. I don't want to LOOK like my hair isn't naturally the color it is. She also styles from verbal descriptions and from photos pefectly. Someone else already mentioned it, but the fact that she doesn't make you sit in the salon chair all day is such a relief. The longest she's ever taken to work on my hair is and hour and a half. I'm able to see Monica once a month now, so my cut and color always look fresh!

I just moved over the summer and didn't know anyone for a good recommendation for a hair salon. So I resorted to the good 'ole internet. My "kickers" were location (seeing as how I still don't know my way around), price (because a teacher's salary isn't the highest on the pay scale) and time frame (because my hair was in some serious need of help). Monica provided all of this ALONG with a fantastice attitude ( I felt like I knew her forever...I enjoyed the pictures of your son Monica...ADORABLE is the word) and her salon is hip & yet not over the top to where you don't feel comfortable & welcomed. I felt pampered! She took her time but it didn't take all day like other highlight sessions with other stylist I've had. Monica is very professional yet down to earth. GREAT GREAT PERSONALITY!!!!! There wasn't a selection for THE BEST on the recommendation scale or that would've been my choice! KUDDOS to you Monica...you are my new stylist!

If you want a relaxing, affordable, personable & fun stylist then give a shout out to Monica...you'll be glad you did!!! Here are the digits to dial (512) 653-3773 Besides, aren't you worth the pampering?

See you soon Monica!

My hair is very important to me--I have long blonde, hilighted, baby fine hair and since I've started seeing Monica--it's perfect. No more bad hair days!!! Monica is an expert at hilights. She never makes me wait and always gets me in and out (hilights and cut) without me having to spend half a day in the hair salon. Monica really listens to everything you want and has really great suggestions for all your "hair issues". I will never let anyone else even touch my hair. I've been to Toni & Guy, several Aveda salons througout the country and no one can even come close to the service and expertise Monica delivers each and every time!

I am so happy I found Monica - she is such a great stylist. She is very easy to talk to and she is very knowledgeable about cuts and color. She will give you a trustworthy opinion about what will look good on you. I always get compliments on my hair cuts and my color. I have referred friends and family to Monica and they are always happy and always go back. I cannot say enough about the great service she provides and she is friendly and has a comfortable space and very reasonable prices.

I've been going to Monica for 3 years and couldn't be happier. She offers fabulous service at very reasonable rates. I frequently get compliments on my color and trust her completely to help me choose the right cut. And on top of it all, she is a great person to talk to! Monica is easy, laid-back and makes you feel 100% comfortable in her chair.

Monica has been my stylist for 4 years. She listens and I get what I want each time. My hair is thin, fine and curly. She does a wonderful job with highlights and cut so that my hair is at its best. Bravo Monica!

I'd grudgingly lived with big, messy frizzy hair (bigger and frizzier when I moved to Austin) when I heard about the hair transformation process used by Monica. I was skeptical, but scheduled an initial consultation. Her professional confidence and calm, friendly personality impressed me, so I put my hair in her brilliant hands. Forward two years: my hair's never been better. It's healthy, smooth, straight, easy to style and care for, even on the muggiest days - who knew this was possible?! Maintenance and touch-ups are no problem, and my hair product consumption has dropped drastically as well. I get so many compliments from friends to strangers. I just tell them, "It's not my hair, it's Monica's." I can't recommend Monica enough - she's wonderful.

I read all of the reviews on Monica and decided that I had to see for myself if she really was that good. I booked an appointment and had my hair highlighted. It looks great! It even looks healthier than before. You can definitely believe the hype. Monica is awesome.

OMG!!! I can't believe what a find! I went to Monica to see if she could fix the mess I made of my daughters hi lites. She's swesome. She not only fixed it she also gave her an amazing haircut in about an hour and a half. She saved the day since my daughter was going to a photo shoot that afternoon. Super professional, super friendly, super great! Everyone should go to her.

I surprised my wife with a gift certificate to Monica at Rivas hairstudio for her birthday. She was in desperate need coloring her hair (her gray was showing.) She was able to book an appointment with Monica in the evening and came home looking 20 years younger. Monica really did a great job and wife loved her. She'll have a repeat customer so long as she's around.

I've suffered for years with my curly hair. I would spend nearly an hour every morning trying to straighten it with the flat iron only to curl back up during humid days. I did a little research on permanent hair straightening and found that Monica was the resident expert here in Ausitn. I called Monica and set up a consultation and then went in for the treatment. It took about 3 hours and the results were amazing. My hair was straight, smooth and healthier than its ever been! Monica was so wonderful. She even gave me some free samples to try. I now spend less than 10 minutes in the morning getting my hair ready. What Monica did was pure magic. Thank you so much. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Monica to anyone!

I usually go to a salon on 5th Street, but they were all booked and I was in need of highlights because I was going to a wedding in a couple of days. I remembered that a friend of mine had told me about Monica a couple of months ago so I found Monica's card and gave her a call. Not only was Monica able to fit me in, but I think that my highlights look better and more natural than my what my usual hair dresser is able to do. And best of all, it was half the price of what I usually pay. I am definitely making the switch over to Monica and would recommend her to anyone.

I've always been a bit reluctant to color my hair, because the last time I had it colored at another salon, it came out looking orange. Monica was recommended to me by a friend that has been seeing her for over 3 years. I have to say that I love my new hair color. It looks natural and healthy. Monica really listened to my concerns and was able to recommend a shade that would compliment my skin tone. I will never be reluctant to color my hair again so long as Monica is my stylist.

I went to see Monica on a friend's recommendation (I'm usually jealous of how her hair looks). Monica did a highlight and a hair cut and I have to say, I think that I look better than my friend now :) My hair makes me look years younger. I would definitly not hesitate to recommend Monica to any of my friends. Monica, you really are the BEST!

Monica has been doing my hair for nearly 3 years now and I wouldn't think of going with anyone else. She just recently moved to the Rivas Hair Studio from Kent of Europe. Rivas is so much nicer and more conveniently located. I especially love the red floor and the Asian theme. Monica always provides great service and I always end up leaving feeling and looking like a million bucks. Thank you Monica for all your great service. You know you have a client for life!
