Jessica, the new aesthetician is amazingly skilled. My facial was everything a facial should be - targeted to my specific skin care needs (yes, she actually asked), calming, rejuvenating. The products are great but the magic is in Jessica's technique. Just the right amount of pressure in smooth, repetitive motions is oh-so relaxing with special attention to the temples, forhead and jaw where we all hold tension. Her abundant use of hot, steamy towels makes you feel totally decadent . While your mask does its work, she moisturizes your hands, arms, shoulders by rubbing in a creamy lotion to complete your relaxation. The space is lovely - quiet and serene. Jessica is warm and personable but so respectful of the client's privacy needs allowing you to enjoy the peace, quiet, and stillness after the facial. She's my girl from now on in...give yourself an hour....you'll be glad you did.

P. S. While I don't do waxing....I've heard she's able to deliver 'slick as a whistle' and is as 'ouchless' as you can get.

I regularly go to this salon for my hair but I decided to get my eyebrows waxed last week because my usual girl at another place was out of town. Boy, am I glad I did! It was hands down the best eyebrow shaping and wax I've ever had. Their new esthetician Jessica is an ace. I came back on Saturday for a facial with Jessica and I never knew this is what they're supposed to be like. I fell asleep twice I was so relaxed! My skin has never looked better and my husband actually noticed and gave me a compliment! That is a first! Shes definitely the only one I'm going to from now on and I cant recommend her or the staff there highly enough. Five stars.

I'm not much on writing reviews but I definitely read them as I feel they contain valuable information; especially when it might involve my hair.
I felt compelled to write because Jamie T. is a fantastic hair stylist and I was so happy with her I felt I just needed to tell someone. She cut my hair exactly how I requested, and gave me a fabulous color. She was just so pleasant to talk to as well. I highly recommend her for anyone out there looking for an awesome, talented girl to take care of her or his hair or beauty needs.

I acted upon a referal from a lady in the grocery store and it turned out to be one of the best things I have done in a very long time. Saw her and loved her hair and she referred me to Jamie at the Island Salon and Spa. She is a wonderful hair stylist and has a great attitude and professionalism. I do not always act so impulsively but I did this time and I won. I did enjoy my appointment with Jamie and I also enjoyed how everyone made me feel so comfortable.

This was by far the worst brazilian wax I have ever had. Not only that, but the staff was extremely unprofessional. In the middle of my wax, the technician's phone rang and to my horror--she answered it as I was lying on the waxing table feeling extremely uncomfortable. She proceded to talk on the phone for a couple of minutes.
I was in utter shock that someone would do this in the middle of an akward treatment. In addition to the unproffesionalism, I was bleeding in several spots where I was waxed and this had never happened to me before--EVER. My skin was red and irritated for days.
I never take the time to write reviews, but thought that people should be warned before spending a lot of money for poor service. Go somewhere else!!

Although the location did not look the same as in the Video (no candles, no artfully painted walls, no palm tree ambience as the camera shows), the booking included a confirmation call from the stylist. Christiana was cheerful, accommodating and at ease. The appointment provided flexibility to craft the cut, and Christiana was both patient and willing to take on ideas to create a cut that was tailored and worked. And to get this service and cut for the price paid was just the result I wanted: A great value for a quality, tailored cut and personable experience. Thank you.

I will definitely be back...glad to find you!

Visit Island Spa and Salon as soon as you decide you want to try a Brazilian for the first time, or if you're looking to follow up on one done somewhere else. You will not be disappointed with Ruby Singh, the salon's wax professional. She is an expert at what she can do for you. Her experience is revealed as she helps you to relax if it is your first time, and if not, then be ready for some down to earth conversation. She' never in a rush, and takes the extra time to make sure you are completely satisfied w/your new look. I will never ever go anywhere else...and yes..she uses powder and also cleans up the sticky wax.

This is my 3rd time to visit Island Salon and Spa and my 2nd time to have Wes do my highlights! He is fabulous at highlights and really listens to what you want and offer his suggestions also!

BUT this time I went in for a "Pob". I had hair that feel half way down my back, long and straight and i wanted something new! So Wes listened to what I wanted and gave me a wonderful cut! I absolutely LOVE my cut and couldnt of asked for a better job than was done by Wes!

I have had TONS of compliment on my hair today and have referred him to many people :) Thanks Wes for the glorious cut and color!

Before I decided to write this review I read the other reviews about Island Salon and Spa, and most other reviews were very positive and I toatally agree with them. However what i didnt agree with was the person who wrote "worst Manicure ever", I had my nails done at the Island and by far it had exceeded my expectations. Everyone there is very professional and easy going, I wasn't pressured into buying anything which was a nice change.. They are very flexiable with appointments and I will reccomend this place to everyone I know.

I got a facial and massage at the Island Spa, and it was fabulous. The massage therapist was extremely professional and expert. I felt so relaxed and revived after an hour of her work, especially my shoulders and neck. The facial was equally wonderful, given by a different therapist. My skin looked really purified and glowing. It was a great experience, and I WILL go back!

Ok, I've had my nails done to the point I can probably BE a nail tech. Sometimes, though, I like to pamper myself and go someplace nice rather than a chop shop.

This was absolutely the wrong place to go for nails. Basically, the person that did mine was a hairdresser who may have had a few hours of nail teching in school, but obviously wasn't comfortable with it.

I sat down and said I'd like an American finish. The lady was very chipper, but I noticed (you notice these things) a hesitancy about filing and trimming cuticles. Halfway through the manicure, she tells me she really doesn't feel comfortable doing an American finish, but that if I don't want my nails painted, she'll give me a discount.

Well... mind you... if I'd known THAT, I'd never have sat in the chair! The "discount" was $17. I told the front desk clerk it wasn't worth that. Basically - all I'd gotten was an arm massage (not the best I've had, but not bad) and a few passes of the emory board. She dropped it to $10. So, I paid $10 for nothing, really.

Very unhappy with this joint and won't go back. Always check at these spas to see if your nail tech is really a nail tech or whether she/he is a hairdresser masking as a nail tech. I've had this happen to me twice (I learn slowly). Spas seem more notorious for this.

Wes is the BEST colorist and stylist that I have been to...ever. I'm NEVER disappointed and I am stress free when putting my locks in his hands. He's creative and listens to what I want. I'm continuously complimented on my hair styles/color, which of course is a real ego boost. Wes is a real gem....He'll always have me as a fan! I will always be on Team Wes!

I went to Elaina after my hair was ruined by an inexperienced hairstylists. My hair was completely bleache out and almost beyond the point of being saved. Elaina stayed late to fix my hair and return it to health. She was more concerned about the health of my hair than anything else. She told me the process would take time but needed to be done to ensure my hair would just break. My hair now feels much better and looks GREAT!!! I would highly recommended Elaina for any hair service!!!

I recently moved to Austin and began the search for a new hair stylist. I tried a small salon a couple of weeks ago and got a pretty bad hair cut. I found Island Spa and Salon on Citysearch and read great reviews so I called yesterday to see if they could get me in to fix my hair. I was lucky enough to get scheduled today with Elaina. Elaina quickly reassured me that the haircut was pretty bad, but the good news was that she could fix it! I have wavy to curly hair and usually try to straighten it, with not that great of results. Elaina cut it to where I could wear it naturally curly or staight. She explained how I could very easily style my hair for every day wear by scrunching the curls and letting it air dry. Just a little product to finish it off and I'm ready to go. I have to say, it looks awesome. A very hip style and the best part is that it's so easy for me to do myself. Elaina just found a new customer. I won't be going anywhere else. Thank goodness.

This is the first time EVER that I have gone to a Salon , including some of the "high end" ones, and not gone home and re-done my hair. Janelle is amazing. My hair looks wonderful and she did the highlights exactly as they needed to be done! The Salon is relaxing, exceedingly clean, and so friendly. They now have a customer for life!

Wes Turnbow is the best stylist I have ever had. I have fine hair and it just would fall flat but then thankfully I met Wes. He took the time to listen to my hairstyling challenges, suggested some different options to give my hair the oomph it desperately needed, and even coached me through styling on my own. Wes listens
to me which is so hard to find in a hairstylist. His color is also phenomenal - he is like an artist. Wes
has taken me from a sunkissed chesnut to a fiery auburn and now a bold brunette all within a year. How fun is that! And my hair is still so soft, healthy, and manageable. He also does my sister's curly hair and she loves his work too. On top of all this, he is super funny and nice and makes you feel good about yourself each time you see him. Book with Wes, he is the BEST!

I have tried to find a good salon in Austin for many years, since I came here years ago to go to UT. I left my last salon because of customer service issues---they were rude and not professional. I made an appointment with Elaina at Island Salon and Spa and walked out for once feeling very happy and like I'd made a good choice! My hair feels healthy and is exactly what I told her I wanted. I have long blonde hair and I really get annoyed when stylists try to talk me into cutting it. Elaina is a long hair and highlight expert. She didn't try to sell me any products and her service was prompt. I will go back to her next time because I feel like I can trust her to understand what I want with my hair. She did an excellent job--request her!

After years of my hair being boring and blah I decided to take the plunge and get it cut and styled. A friend recommended Elaina and she not only gave me a great haircut she also recommended I get highlights. So, the next week I went back, slightly nervous because I never in my life have had highlights. I wasn't real sure what to expect, but after a brief consultation with Elaina I knew I was in good hands. She did a fantastic job! The highlights are just enough to make my hair shine and not be "wow, you got highlights". I have gotten so many comments on how great I look and the only thing I have changed is my hair. But let's face it, when you feel good about how you look people notice. And that is what Elaina did for me. She gave me a cut and highlights that fit me and made me feel beautiful. So if your looking for a change I highly recommend her.

Im from Houston, got a strong referal from an Austin friend, and I was completely impressed and totally satsified!
This weekend I got an awesome facial from their new professional from NewYork. She really knows her stuff, and my face hasn't looked and felt this good in years.
And finally... MASSAGE! Kimmie's hands are blessed, she is healing in everyway. You dont know how much you really need one of her massages till you get one. You will vow to come back after just a few weeks have passed.

Overall this is a great place....they are pros at taking care of you, and you will feel welcome, and want to come back regulary.

I followed Tanja from her old salon, she is the best colorist and stylist I've ever been to. I've been going to her for 5 years now, I would follow her anywhere. Thank goodness she's at the Island Salon & Spa now - what a terrific place.

I also highly recommend Kim for massage. The hot stone massage is to die for. I can't wait to go again. Nancy is also wonderful for manicures. : )

Hemdira, the owner/manager is a doll. I can't recommend this place enough.

I am a college student, new to town ,and I was scared to death about trying a new stylist out. I met Jenelle downtown one night and we started talking and she gave me one of her buisness cards. I called and made an appointment that very next day. My hair was down to the middle of my back and I want to cut it off. I wanted to get away form the high school look. Jenelle made me feel and look like a million bucks. I was so relaxed in her chair. Jenelle new just the look to give me. I love it!!! Everyone should try her out. She is the best!

Positively EXCELLENT!! This spa was spotless, the staff very welcoming, courteous and helpful. I was from out of town and received clear, easy-to-follow directions to their location. Kimmie gives a FABULOUS massage. I had the deep tissue massage with hot stone therapy and came out feeling like I had a new body. My thanks to all the staff. I'll be back!

Positively EXCELLENT!! This spa was spotless, the staff very welcoming, courteous and helpful. I was from out of town and received clear, easy-to-follow directions to their location. Kimmie gives a FABULOUS massage. I had the deep tissue massage with hot stone therapy and came out feeling like I had a new body. My thanks to all the staff. I'll be back!

I called in for an appointment, bored with my hair but still trying to grow it long after chopping it boy-short last year. This was my first time at Island Salon, and I was assigned Jennifer Simmons -- she totally reshaped my hair to help me enjoy my length and keep on going long! Friendly, with tips in other areas, she was great. I've already referred her to one friend -- I'll definitely be back!

Pros: Atmosphere, understanding & helping client achieve desired results

I was referred to "the Island" for a pedicure and it was the best I ever had. I have gotten pedicures for years and I have to say again----THE BEST----with Nancy Ward. I met Tina while I was there and ended up getting highlights. She listened to me and we discussed what I wanted and she shared her thoughts and we came up with the best look for me---awesome.

Nancy Ward does an incredible job with nails! I am a tennis/golf player, and I leave after having a pedicure and my feet are soft and smooth. I have followed her for eight years, and she is absolutely the best nail technician in town!!

As painful as this is to admit, I had (as Sweet Stephanie put it) a European Mullet. I did not do this on purpose, but the pushy stylist at another salon insisted she knew "exactly what you mean" when I explained what I wanted. SOOOOO, I went running to the AMAZING Stephanie who is WONDERFUL in EVERY way. She fixed my awful hair and made it look shiny and gorgeous, to boot. My best friend also got her hair cut and was very happy with the results. I can't say enough about Steph. Besides being from England (v. exotic), she is fun-loving, easy-going, and VERY easy to talk to. This stylist is a keeper. You could not be unhappy with Steph. She's the best.

I went to this salon after being unhappy with my hair for awhile . Lisa cut and colored my hair and it is so beautiful now. I get so many compliments and best of all my husband even noticed and likes it too. Lisa is the best hairstyilst around . I won't let anyone else touch my hair from now on.

Judy Anderson is awesome! She actually convinced me to cut my hair from shoulder length to short, highlighted and colored. I have had everyone come up to me and tell me I have dropped 10 years off my face.............she does a phenomenal job, makes getting my hair cut fun, and is the only person I know that could keep me sitting in a chair happily for 2 hours while doing my hair.......She is beyond professional and just a pheneomenal hair stylist. Always stays up to date on what is new and improved, and passes that knowledge along to keep my hair looking healthy and me looking younger - recommended her to my Mom who is Miss Fussy and Mom loves her - actually is driving over every 6 weeks from Florida to have Judy do her hair.

I have always hated the way I looked in pictures. I am not very photojenic one might say. My mother wanted me to have a bridal portrit done, which of course I did not think was a good idea. My mom set me up with Kimberly who has been doing her hair for years. She did a wonderful job. Its like she had a magic wond. I looked beautful for the first time ever. My pictures are priceless. Even the photogarpher said that he didnt have to do any retouching because my hair and makeup were flawlwss. Thanks to Kimberly at Island salon and spa.

Pros: semi privite room, talent

Stephanie is the best with color!! I am a blonde and we hate to end up too brassy or too brown. Stephanie has always used the best technique and chosen the best combination of colors to weave. Next best about Stephanie is that she is great with the cutting of your hair. Stephanie always has a smile on her face and wonderful bounce to her voice. She is a delight! The salon is easy to get to from either side of town and there is plenty of parking. Don't wait another minute before you call her. Auddie W.

I live north of Fort Worth, but it is well worth the drive to have Stephanie color and cut my hair. Steph has such good ideas and is able to make them real with excellent results. I've never had so many compliments on my hair, especially from men! The entire staff is very flexible and always works with me to make it easy for me. I will continue to keep the road hot between here and Austin.

I went to this salon after reading the reviews on city search. I've been needing a new style but not sure what would look good. I went in and asked for Lisa, She listened to what I did and didn't want and told me what would look good for my face. She was very nice and very good at what she does. I now have the perfect style , I love my hair now. Going to this salon was a great experience for me and I won't go anywhere else ever again.

I will make this short and sweet! If you want to look your best you must go see Kimberly. She is the best. She did all the works to my hair and I look amazing. Not only do I look good but I can do it myself. So if you want to save yourself some time stop researching and book an appointment with Kimberly today.

I am a new client of Island Salon and Spa and I have to say that I will always be one now. I absolutely love my hairstylist, Stephanie. I have never found anyone that can work with my hair like she can. She knows exactly what I want with out me having to tell her. I always leave her with a huge smile on my face. I am willing to drive from Fort Worth to Austin every time I need a haircut just to have Stephanie do it for me. There is no one else like her!

Last week I went to see Jennifer after seeing her name on citysearch. I was a little hesitant because I am new in town and didn't know what to expect. From the moment I walked in this salon I was impressed. The atmosphere, the staff, and best of all Jennifer. I couldn't have made a better choice. She is an absolutely amazing colorist and she gave me the best cut I had ever had. Did I forget to mention she is fun and she made it all about me. From the extra long scalp massage to the glass of wine. Pure class and charm. If you are looking for a new stylist, you have to try Jennifer.

I highly recommend Jennifer Simmons to anyone! In the past, I have driven 4 hours to have my hair cut. Now I have found Jennifer. She always does an excellent job with whatever I ask of her.. cut, color, etc. Jennifer is always professional, fun, and actually interested in how I look and feel when I leave her chair. I trust no one else with my hair! Stylist extraordinaire, definition - Jennifer Simmons.

I was so tired of looking the same! Every time I left my old salon I felt like I always came out looking exactlly the same even though I asked for something different. I even had pictures. Until I found Kimberly!! I showed her the same picture that I had and she colored, highlighted and cut my hair. I looked so good I wanted to cry. She did everything I expected and more. She is a very pretty girl inside and out. Did I mention talented? I am not the only one who thinks so, Austin Monthly Magazine thinks so too. She was nominated for best stylist in town in 2005. I read this in the UT informal classes booklet were she teaches makeup classes for all ages. I know I have found the best stylist in town and her prices are awsome!

Shortly before I moved from Austin to Dallas, I went into this salon and had Jenelle do my haircut and highlight. I was so impressed by what she did that to this day I drive 200 miles to have her do my hair when needed. I also had her do my updo and makeup for my wedding (the reason I moved to Dallas) and I received so many compliments, and my pictures look so great. She is well worth my drive into Austin.
