I've been searching for a permanent stylist since moving to Ausitn a few years ago. Finally I've found Sarah and I can't imagine going to anyone else. She's wonderfully talented and has great ideas. I'd recommend her to anyone. THANKS SARAH!!!

This is truly a fabulous establishment with a ton of heart and and skill to match! John MacDonald is one of the most enjoyable people I have ever met. Even better, he is amazingly skilled at both haircuts AND coloring. I moved to Austin from NYC and was super impressed by John and his salon. John could pop up to NYC to teach those salons a thing or two about quality, comfort, and heart!

kristin is a hair genius! i love the fact that she is a perfectionist. she will make sure your hair is perfect every time. she listens when you have an idea and if, for some reason , that idea doesn't fit your face or need, she will sit with you and help you figure out what will help you look amazing. i send everyone i know to her. she does it all! i now live 1500 miles away from austin and can tell you that she is worth the plane ride. she is the ONLY person i will ever let put scissors and color to my head. and remember, she is not only a hair genius she is a genuinely wonderful, unpretentious, kind, individual!!

Steve Stanford is the best stylist in Austin, if not in the country. I've moved around and was really thrilled when a friend introduced me to Steve. He identifies the natural attributes of your hair then develops a cut and color to complement them. He not only has technique, but he also has a vision and as a result I have gotten so many compliments on my hair! I have been going to him for 5 years now and will never leave!

My sister is a very good friend of John's. In 2005 I flew from Vermont to Austin for her wedding. That's when I first met the ever famous John I have been hearing about for over a year at the time. He is wonderful. He reminded me of Edward Scissor Hands. I had hair flying everywhere. He gave me three different highlight colors, and as he was washing my hair I recieved a head massage. I was sooo pleased with the outcome. I'll tell you, it may be expensive, or for me it is, but if I lived in the area I would work a second job if needed to go see him. He is the only sylist I ever trusted with my hair, as far as trying something new. I HIGHLY recommend him.

After looking for a hairstylist for 3 years I finally found John in 2003 and I am so glad I did....he is the most wonderful stylist I have ever ever had. He did the the hair of myself and all my wedding party in June 2005 and did the most transforming haircut on my best friend that she cried....it was awesome. Not only did he make me feel and look beautiful on my special day he did so with my whole wedding party. I have yet to go to his new place but I can only imagine that if as wonderful as he is. After moving more then 2 hours away and seeing a different hair stylist I will be back in John's chair as he is the ONLY one who knows how to make my color look amazing and make myself look and feel amazing. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE........

Kim gives me the best haircut ever and always has a smile. I am a guy so I hate getting haircuts, but I have been going to kim for over 2 years now on the advice of someone else and thought I should spread the word too. My wife absolutely loves her as well, and that is no small victory!

After many years of bad luck, I finally found the best! I have been going to Kim B. for over two years now and have never been anything but wowed! She does outstanding color and I always love my cut! She provides great consultations when I am thinking about a change and always achieves the look I'm after! Kim is very knowledgeable and has tons of experience! My mom, step-father and my husband all go to her as well. Not to mention, everyone I have referred has done nothing but rave! I actually followed Kim to John Girard from another salon and couldn't be happier. Everyone from the front desk to the owner goes above and beyond to provide excellent customer service and they are all super accommodating. Hands down, this salon truly is an urban retreat! I would highly recommend Kim and John Girard Salon to anyone looking for the BEST!

I started seeing Steve Stanford at Bella about 7 years ago and have now followed him to this salon. I can't say enough wonderful things about Steve - the compliments I get on my hair color say it all! He took me from bleached blond to a natural looking red and I've never looked back! And the new salon is very inviting and warm with lots of natural light and a great, relaxed space. I highly, highly recommend both the salon (all of the stylists are great) and of course, Steve. Your search for a great salon and stylist in Austin is over - you'll be very pleasantly surprised!

After moving from Europe to Austin, one of the big obstacles for me, was to find a good and trendy hairstylist. After trying few places I was rather disappointed and then somebody recommended Kimberly B. to me. When I see her, she not only takes into consideration my physical appearance but also my personality and my busy mom-of-3-girls lifestyle. The results are GREAT!!! Thank you, Kimberly, you are the BEST!

I have recently been looking high and low for a new stylist in Austin. After months of searching, I finally took the recommendation of a friend and made an appointment with Steve at John Girard Salon. Best decission I have made in a LONG time. The hair cut was the best one in years and the color is incredible! Steve is awesome - so much so that I made a follow up appointment immediately - which is something I never do! I can't wait to go back - it is a welcome escape. The salon is relaxing and inviting. The entire team is extremely funny and they all make you feel very welcome. I could go on and on. In short, do yourself a favor and make an appt. with Steve - you won't regret the decission! Many many thanks Steve - see you in a couple of weeks!!!!

I get so many compliments on my hair cut! Steve Stanford is fabulous at finding the right style for your hair. For years, I had "average" haircuts, but Steve found the WOW in my hair. And Steve is very talented at choosing the right color, so it looks looks like my own natural color (of a few years ago). He also massages your scalp during the shampoo - what a treat.

I would be lost without John Girard!
Since I descovered his incredible gift I will always go back there. I'm from Italy and when I moved in the USA I was never able to find a good salon, I used to go back home and redo my hair by myself after spending a lot of money.
With John I just have to close my eyes and when I open them I have the comfort to go out the salon with my beautiful new hair cut and color.Just let him do what ever he thinks it's good for you, You won't regret it! Trust me.
Thank you John you are a Master in what you do, I will see you soon!!!!

I have never written a review for citysearch, but Steve Stanford at the swank John Girard Salon is responsible for a whole new me and I need the world to know about it!

I started to write a review when I got home from my whole new hair doo (this would be cut & color) because I was just glowing. Then I decided I would wait. Sure, the I looked fantastic now, but what about three days later or a month later?

Alright, you can guess from the myriad of stars, my hair still looks fantastic and Steve Stanford is a bona fide bald headed, cape wielding SUPER HERO.

I went in with a small, yet, standard list of hair demands: It needs to make me look thin, young, long, but not too long, and bang-less or maybe short with wispy bangs, fabulous color that looks hip, but not so hip that I get stared down at my kid?s playgroup! Oh, and I want to be able to wake up and go, or try to curl it into a semi-Texas glamour doo when I need to see my mother.

Steve nodded and thought for a few minutes. Then he went at my hair like he was on a mission from God. Highlighting, coloring, dragging the hair from the back and layering it around my face, moving my part, chopping off a few inches, and snipping the layers so they weren't too chunky, throwing a little product on the ends, and VOILA! I ended up one hot tamale!

It looked gorgeous. I loved it. I shook my hair and it fell perfectly into a messy, bouncy, flawless shape. It was more edgy, but still long enough to throw in a clip and it was pretty enough to make my Texas mama proud. That boy is a magician. I've referred several friends and they all now worship at his feet and are sworn believers.

There is also lots of free parking and the salon is completely hip, totally cool and an Austin experience that is not to be missed!

I have been coming to John since 2000 when my daughter was in school in Austin. I live in Houston and was looking for a new haircut and color. She suggested I go see John while I was in town. I have been with him ever since and am so glad he has his own place to call home!!! He is one of the most innovative and creative stylists as well as a great colorist!! He listens to what you want and then tries to give you his own refined version and look, that is best for you. The salon is fabulous and John decorated and designed it himself!! He is a wonderful friend as well as hairdresser. I highly recommend him, as long as I can still get my appointment!!!!!!!!!!

I followed two of my stylists to this Salon, and I am so happy they moved here! This new salon is just fabulous! Small, intimate, chic setting--- so comfortable and inviting. LOVE every single person that works there. Kim B. is hands down the most incredibly talented hair colorist in this town, and Kristin has always given me fabulous hair cuts. My husband gets his hair cut with Steve, and has never been happier (finally) with his hair. I recommend this salon without a doubt to anyone looking for 'the place'. I won't be going anywhere else.

I just want to send out a compliment to John, owner of this wonderful new salon. I?ve been living in Austin for 16 years since moving here from NYC and I?ve finally found someone who can cut men's hair. My wife knows how frustrated I was with some of the hairstylists in Austin (I?ve probably tried 20+ stylists) and she recommended around a year ago that I see John. I know how particular she is about her hair and she was very happy with how he did her hair coloring. Her recommendation was right on. There never seems to be a problem w/ parking and the salon is very comfortable (not loud and crazy). We are very happy for John and wish him and his staff success.

John Girard Salon is fantastic! It is a modern salon with a casual feel. You can walk in feeling out dated and leave feeling like you are the sexiest thing on the street. The service you receive is personal from start to finish. John is amazing and has really created a salon that fits everyone. I highly recommend this salon to everyone.

I recently came over from another salon in town that shall remain nameless, following my old stylist Kristin.
John Girard is much better. A lovely, well lit, and extremely chill salon in the heart of downtown Austin, this is a place I know I will keep coming back to. The owner is very nice, and the rest of the staff are very personable and charming as well. Kristin does my color and styling, and I have to say she is a genius with it. Nowhere have I seen someone better at colorwork than her, and I have been around. Her cuts are impeccable as well.

This Salon is highly recomended for it's talented staff, inviting, relaxing atmosphere and overall high quality experience.

Thanks Kristin!

I came to John Girard Salon on advice from my roomate, and was blown away by Kristen's talent. She is a master stylist, INCREDIBLE with color, and can do a blowout like nobody else. She made me look like I just came off a film set. My boyfriend was thrilled when I came home. Kristen is hands down the best at cut/color I have EVER SEEN. Very warm, really takes the time to get to know you, make sure you get what you want. She is very committed to making sure you leave 100% satisfied with your new look!

Another happy customer!

I highly recommend John! He has taken an always disappointed highlightee and turned me into a devotee of his magic! John is always willing to work you in when he can and WANTS to hear your opinion about his work. John is lighthearted and above all does an amazing job. He is a true professional.

John Girard Salon surpasses all expectations and trounces the competition. First, John MacDonald is one of the most wonderful people and that personality shows through in every part of his work and his salon. I first came to John in 2001 and instantly loved him. Years (and 2 cities) later, I still drive from Dallas every other month just to see him. I rarely come in with a plan for my hair...I just leave it in his capable hands and every time he's finished I feel beautiful. Second, John has worked long and hard to open his new salon and it shows. Nowhere else do you get the quality treatment that you do there...from the gorgeous walkup, the bright sunny interior, the friendly staff, hand massages while color sets, makeup touch-up, and of course the BEST shampoo in town. Honestly, I'm not sure why someone would go anywhere else!

I would not go anyone else, or trust anyone else with my hair-- Kim B. is the most phenomenal colorist, and Kristen gives me hands down the best hair cut I've ever had. Not to mention the fact that they are two girls who I genuinely look forward to seeing.

My hair looks the best it has ever looked!!! I went to see Kim B. and I had no idea what I wanted. She helped with an amazing cut and the best color I've ever had! I get compliments on my hair all the time now, it made such a difference, so I thought I'd tell everyone that I can where I got it done. I will tell anyone who will listen about Kim, she's amazing at what she does and hilarious!

After being in Austin for 4 years and searching for the right stylist. John was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad he was. He took the time to get to know what I was looking for and gave lots of suggestions of what he thought would look best. I totally trust him and give him free rein when it comes to the cut and color of my hair.

I tend to be a little, shall we say, "high maintenance" when its comes to my hair. I looked for two years to find the perfect stylist - and I finally found one - John MacDonald! I started with John in 2001 and wouldn't go anywhere else. He's an expert at color, very accommodating with my crazy schedule and gives the best shampoo in town! He's always been honest about what will and will not look good and takes the time to get to know each client's hair needs. I give John my highest recommendation!

This is a FABULOUS new salon owned by an amazing guy who gives 100% of himself to his clients and his stylists. The team he has put together is fun, experienced, talented and oh so sweet. You will be so happy & hip with any of the stylists at Jon Girard, but I have to say that Steve Stanford is my very fav!

The salon is conveniently located on West & 3rd with lots of easy free parking. It has the vibe of a super swank hip garage. Being Austin - it's super cool to let the outside in and John Girard Salon has struck just the right laid back atmosphere where you can relax for awhile and become a great new you. I get so chilled out by the great vibes that I hate to leave!

Steve Stanford at John Girard is one of the most gifted wonderful people in the entire universe. Not only does he make each and every one of my hair dreams come true (and believe me, folks, I have many and demanding dreams), but he also makes me feel comfortable and look amazing. His vibe is always calm and laid back, and Steve always takes the time to listen carefully to what I want - even if all I can say is "I want something that makes me look not too old, not too hip - but WAY WAY super cool". He GETS it! I'll never go to another hairdresser as long as I can keep Steve in my life. I have followed him from other salons, and I believe he has finally found the perfect place.

JOHN GIRARD ROCKS - You want Austin cool, look no further and book now because this new place is about to explode! Five of my friends have tried it and they are now definitely JOHN GIRARD GROUPIES!

This is a FABULOUS new salon owned by an amazing guy who gives 100% of himself to his clients and his stylists. The team he has put together is fun, experienced, talented and oh so sweet. You will be so happy & hip with any of the stylists at Jon Girard, but I have to say that Steve Stanford is my very fav!

The salon is conveniently located on West & 3rd with lots of easy free parking. It has the vibe of a super swank hip garage. Being Austin - it's super cool to let the outside in and John Girard Salon has struck just the right laid back atmosphere where you can relax for awhile and become a great new you. I get so chilled out by the great vibes that I hate to leave!
