Yes, Salon Aqua Blue has closed but you can find Gayle at Salon Uffizi. you can reach her @ (512) 797-3871

I forgot to mention about coloring your hair and having the process done. You can color it the same time you have the product

I love, love, love the cut I received from Ronny. I came to him after a bad haircut and he not only fixed it, he made it look awesome.

I definitely recommend Ronny....worth every penny.

I have been a client of Alfredo's since his days at Toni and Guy. =] I have extremely thick and and unruly hair and Alfredo is a pro at handling it. Every single time I walk out of the salon I am satisfied and feel great about how I look. If you are new to the area or looking for someone you can TRUST to cut your hair without butchering it, please go see Alfredo. The last time I went in I actually saw Brandon and have to say he did an excellent job. Hes very meticulous and took his time making sure every hair on my head was perfectly cut. lol :D Bottom line is Alfredo is a wonderful stylist, I highly recommend him.

Cons: Location (for me)

I can't tell you how many compliments I get about my color and cut every time I see Gayle Standard. She knows exactly what to do every time I see her to make my hair look the best that it can be. If I want a change, she's ready with ideas and gives me the realistic advantages and disadvantages. I can't say enough about her abilities as a hair stylist!

If you're spending 2 hours with anyone one on one, ideally you're looking for someone who's smart, friendly, kind and fun to talk to and Gayle embodies all those things. I enjoy our talks so much and I always leave feeling up and positive because she is such a great person.

She??s the best in Austin!

Went to the salon yesterday a but upset (personal stuff) and left looking great and feeling much better than when I arrived. Receptionist is very welcoming, and the stylist are all very friendly. My hair needed the roots to be brought under control and Lupita Oliva went to work and I felt like a new woman when she finished. My hair looks fabulous and my spirits were lifted by all the kindness that surrounded me. If you are a red head or if you desire red hair Lupita is the only person in Austin to see. Love you girl keeping doing what you are doing!??

What can I say except that Gayle is simply awesome at what she does. She couldn't have chosen a better career as far as talent and also loving what she does for a living. I always look forward to the day I get my hair done, not only for the beautiful look I always end up with, but also the conversation and comaraderie! She is both knowledgable and honest. The salon is clean and the atmosphere is fun. I always feel welcome and leave feeling beautiful!

I've been reading the reviews and much of the negativity has been about stylists. If you like the salon, why not try a new stylist? Gayle is the best. She's been doing my hair for about four years and I can't say enough good things about her. I would follow her to the ends of the earth. If she opened up shop in her garage, I would be there!! Luckily she's found a great home at Aqua Blue.

Everyone at Aqua blue is friendly and welcoming when you walk in the door. My only complaint is the chairs are somewhat close together, which makes conversation a little tough at times. But overall, I think the atmosphere is fun and hip...just like Gayle.

Gayle does wonderful things with cuts and color. She has prevented me from making some big mistakes. If you walk in with a picture of the latest do you want , she'll frankly tell you if it's going to be too high maintenance or simply won't look good on you. She suggests good cuts and always mixes the perfect color. I've had people stop me to compliment my hair and ask for my hair sylist's card on three different occasions, which makes me all the more confident in Gayle's abilities.

I've never had a bad cut or color with Gayle and after four years, that speaks volumes. Give Gayle a try!! She's the best!

Gayle is my hair dressser and she is awesome. She is one of a kind. She knows exactly what I need to do with my hair even when I don't. I HIGHLY recommend her. The salon is funky and cool and so is Gayle.

OMG I have had the absolute worst experience with Ginger. This is the WORST haircut I have ever gotten. I told her I was trying to grow out my hair and she seriously cut me layers, that are short! I went home crying because now it is going to take me another 6 months to grow out what she messed up. Not to mention the haircut really is not that great either. She did not listen to anything I wanted. I told her I wanted a little bit of a face frame, nothing short, and she cut it short.

She was also 15 minutes late coming in. I mean I was there before her, talk about unprofessional.

NEVER EVER GO TO GINGER..

Okay. So I wrote a bad review of this salon last November, but let me tell you -it has now changed. Previously I had a good haircut, just no the haircut for me. I asked for my money back and they obliged. Alfredo, who is the salon owner(I think) told me that I should come back and give him a try. After months of debating, I decided to do it. I gave Alfredo some pictures of hair that I liked. He said that he saw the concept that I was looking for and then cut my hair. He fixed my hair, ater cutting it, in a way that I would just never do or be able to do. I have to say that I have very fine hair which goes flat 10 minutes after fixing it. Well, I got home and the next day I fixed my hair for the first time since it was cut. It was amazing!!! I had more body and my hair just fell into place. I tried for hours to figure out how he did it. All I can say is that it was better than ever. Honestly, it was the best hair cut I have ever had (and I have had alot of haircuts). I am in love with my hair and more confident. I will be going back to Alfredo again, for sure!!!!!

My hair is dark naturally but I wear it very blonde. Anyone who has blonde hair knows you have to have a great colorist or else you will look like sh*t. Brassy, fried hair is never hot, even if you are Britney Spears. I just moved to Austin from California and was so worried about finding a colorist; thank god I found Brooke.

I have job in PR and I need my hair to look Hollywood. Brooke always delivers! Even if I just go in for a wash and dry, I come out looking like Kim Kardashian. Not only does she use the best quality coloring products, she is super careful so that my hair stays healthy and on point. She will also help you pick out Shamp&Conditioner to match your specific hair needs. The colors that she chose for my low lights and highlights really compliment my skin tone and look natural. I even decided to get some extensions and they look awesome!! She colored them to match my hair and cut in some layers so you can't even tell. Even my close friends commented on my hair "growing" not even realizing... I still haven't told them!
She always has so many ideas for stylish cuts and there are a ton of hair magazines to look at for inspiration. Bangs, no bangs, the break-up chop, short cuts, long layers... Brooke has hooked it up. I am not kidding, she knows her industry. She will also notice the mistakes of another stylist (oops... I cheated out of desperation)! One thing you can count on, is that she very honest and won't let you leave Aqua Blue until your hair looks great. She does such a good job I always give her an extra $20...

Before you leave, make sure you meet Alfredo... the s*xy owner of Agua Blue... look for his spicy black hair and hot glasses...

I've been dying my hair black from a box for almost twenty years, and was starting to get tired of the color as well as the trouble of getting the color, going home, praying I didn't get dye on anything other than my hair, and all the other fun at home dye acutramal.

I'd gone to some place at the mall where they were extremely rude to me saying that black dye cannot be taken out and even if they did, it'd look horrible. I'm sure it would have if I'd let THEM do it. I was going to give up and just let it grow out hideously, until I remembered I'd gone to Aqua Blue a year prior and really enjoyed it. Also I recall they did crazy colors and feisty cuts, so I figured if they can get the colors in there, they should know how to get them out again!

Robert had cut my hair last time, with me only going in with a bad print out photo of some TV star (don't remember) and I said "Can you do this?" and he said "Yup" spun me around in the chair a bit and TAH DAH. Perfection.

So this time I went in and said... "Can you make my hair not black anymore?" Robert seemed almost excited at the idea, and not only said yes, but explained HOW he could, what he'd use, the effects on my hair, and how black hair dye and other dyes stick on your hair. It was like a science lesson!

Robert came in on his day off and was very patient with my child-like tender headedness... not sure how else to say that. Anyhow, he was up front and honest, saying we'd do our best and that it might take more than one go at the dye remover, and I was fully informed and actually excited to participate in this very interesting process.

My hair looks FANTASTIC! The entire staff is wonderful and fun, they're so accommodating and gracious. I love listening to their stories.

Long story short, Robert is now the ONLY man who is allowed to touch my hair from now on... for salon purposes anyhow! Haha!

I have had Cig cut my hair for 2 1/2 years, after he left Toni and Guy (and for good reason), instead of searching for him, which was a big mistake, I went to other places. They were all "okay" but nothing like what Cig does. so when I decided to cut 8 inches off my hair, I knew I had to find him. Like always the cut looked amazing. He is so patient, takes his time, and very talented. I highly recommend him to anyone who appreciates an outstanding, ninja level haircut and style.

I have been going to Allison for years, and even after I moved away to Seattle, when I came into town, I'd harass her for a haircut. I am so lucky she is at Salon Aqua Blue now because it so close to me! I have never been one to color my hair, but I wanted something new and different so we did just a little, and I LOVED IT! I had it done a couple months ago, but I STILL look in the mirror and love it! I work nights and always go in tired, but I can close and my eyes and breathe easy (and nod off :) ) knowing that Allison is making my hair look great!

I've always had a really hard time finding a hairdresser that does what I want. It seems like every hairdresser I have been to will completely do the opposite of the color and especially the cut I want. Allison cut my hair and I absolutely loved it! She did exactly what I asked and even offered for me to come back if there was something I didn't like or wanted to change. And a week later, she let me come back for a trim. She is really sweet and made my first experience at Aqua Blue one that will keep me coming back. I'm planning on going to her this month for a cut and color because I know she is going to make it look awesome, just in time for summer. I definitely recommend Allison if you're considering Salon Aqua Blue for your next hair appointment!

Just wanted to take some time to recommend Allison for all hair needs. I have been going to Allison for years. She has done everything for me from new exciting cuts, color, to quick trims and even did my hair for my wedding! I have loved everythig she has done! I've tried to go to others for some cheap in between cuts and am never as happy as I am with Allison's work. I'm in need of something fresh for the summer and will be calling Allison very soon!

Cons: none

I have been going to Allison for several years now. She always understands completely what it is I am looking to have done and communicates effectively before beginning the process. The cuts she gives are very good and very easy to style once I get home.

Unfortunately, I live out of town now, but when I can, I make the three hour drive to get my color done here. The technique she uses is not run-of-the-mill, but my color always turns out amazing. Very natural and exactly what I am looking for. And, she is more time efficient than most other stylists that I have been to.
I would recommend Allison at Salon Aqua Blue to ANYONE!

I just want to let everyone know that if you are looking for a different hairstylist, check out Allison! I moved to south austin about a year ago and have to admit that I have tried another stylist or two during that time because of the drive, but I will for sure be making the drive to see her no matter what. Everytime I sit in her chair I feel like I have no need to worry because it always turns out the way I imagined... she takes the time to consult and suggest things about what you want and need out of your cut and color, and then shows you how to style it. I just feel so at ease when she is working on me. I love the way I feel and look when Allison is finished. I know that I can be a little picky at times, and that is why I will only go back to Allison. So Thanks Allison!

Everytime I sit in her chair I feel like I have no need to worry because it always turns out the way I imagined... she takes the time to consult and suggest things about what you want and need out of your cut and color, and then shows you how to style it. I just feel so at ease when she is working on me. I love the way I feel and look when Allison is finished. I know that I can be a little picky at times, and that is why I will only go back to Allison. So Thanks Allison!

Pros: detailed oriented, calm, and cool atmoshphere

I have to admit that I was a cheater. When Mischa transitioned from Orbit to Aqua, there was a period of limbo... and mourning :( The fact remained that I had to get my hair did, so I tried to go to other salons: Frenchie's and Wet. Although decent places, neither of the stylists could re-create the work of the mystical Mischa! I have been going to her for about three years, and I have learned that I will have to go to her until she retires (LONG time from now). I am manic about my hair, and it takes a lot to please me, both in cut and color, but especially color. I naturally have nearly black hair, but she makes me look like a blonde beach bunny in the blink of an eye. You have to go to this gal at least once in your lifetime. You won't regret it. Besides, the salon is owned by someone who used to cut my hair years ago at Toni & Guy, and he is an absolute genius!

Pros: free and ample parking; good satellite radio; clean

Cons: THE FLUORESCENT LIGHT. Fluorescent is NO ONE'S color!

I feel bad for writing a negative review when my stylist was the one telling me how great the reviews are on citysearch & that's how most people find them. I just don't want someone else to fall into the same boat I did.

I went in looking for a change. Something new and different! I made an appointment a week before with Allison, got a phone call the morning of asking me to come in later b/c she was running late. Got there, waited for about 30 minutes, sat down, and she had no idea what I was there for. She thought it was a cut, but I had wanted a cut, color, and full highlights. She was stressed about this b/c she overbooked I guess and I ended up getting a partial highlight and lowlights and a cut - she didn't let me know any of this, I figured it out when she told the receptionist what to charge me for. Also, she rescheduled 1 or 2 people that were waiting there for her during my service.

After she blew out my hair and styled it, I spun around, looked in the mirror, and looked EXACTLY the same as I had when I had gone in. This was after I stressed I wanted something DIFFERENT. She asked how I liked it and I said, ummm, I look the same. Maybe shorter? So she cut an inch off and just stood there. I was leaving it up to the pro and I ended up paying $260 for nothing.

Not to mention I also scheduled an eyebrow wax, but when it came time, they hadn't "plugged in the machine". I even tried to buy some hair product, and the girls that worked there said they wouldn't want me to buy anything from there because it didn't work.

It was a real bummer! And now a couple weeks later, my hair has turned a lame brassy color. I am so not a complainer, but after I stated to her at the time that I was disappointed that I looked the same, she charged me full price and rushed me out the door to take care of someone else.

Oh, good people... PLEASE go see Cig! My daughter absolutely looked awesome after her recent hair cut. He takes time and is so careful about his craft. She REFUSES to go to anyone other than the amazing Cig. She told me that she got loads of compliments about her hair and can't wait for her next cut. Thanks so much, Cig!

I have been going to Mishca Fruge for 6 years and she is awesome. She does the best highlights I have ever experienced. She knows how to make me the perfect blonde - which is very hard to do. She also does great hair cuts. In addition to her skills and expertise, she is one of the sweetest and coolest people I know. She is so much fun to talk to. She is just all around awesome! Go see Mishca at Salon Aqua Blue (off of 183 and Burnett)! You won't regret it.

I used to go to Orbit Salon- and that is a great salon with a great vibe- but the best part about Orbit was one of their stylists, Michelle Fruge. So when Michelle transferred over to Salon Aqua Blue, I went with her. Salon Aqua Blue has easy parking, decent prices, and an artsy, modern atmosphere. This review, however, is really in praise of Michelle Fruge. Now, I'm a guy and she is very cute, but that is not why I'm writing this haha! She is the most easy going, amiable, pleasant to be around stylist I have ever had. She's young, she's cool, and she knows what she's doing. I'm told coloring is her specialty, but let me tell you she is great at men's haircuts! She doesn't talk on the phone or chat away with other people while barely paying attention to what she's doing with your head like some stylists do...she takes pride in the work she does and it shows. I have very fine, strawberry-blond hair and somehow she manages to give it a lot of texture. Not only does she do a great job, but I actually leave the salon in a better mood than when I came in! Now how can you beat that?

I would like to give a shout out for my color stylist Mischa, she works at Aqua Blue. She has been my stylist for eons , and no matter where she is I follow . I have had other stylist in the past that would take it upon themselves to do what they felt was right for me . Mischa however really takes the time to ask you what you would like to have done and how you maintain it and wear it . She really does such a great job ! She also has an amazing personality and has me laughing the whole time I'm there . The salon is really nice ,it has a very open lay out , cool vibe to it and features art work from local artist ..Everyone that works there is very nice and greets you with a smile .. which is very important to me . I would highly recommend this salon to everyone and highly recommend Mischa to everyone that goes there as well !!

This is a great place to get your hair cut and colored. It was clean, neat and the people are friendly. Mischa has colored my hair for years. She listens to me and is patient when I change my mind. She guides me to the right decision each time. Just recently Misha began cutting my hair too, and I love it. The place it easy to find and I'd recommend it to all my friends.

Several years ago I decided to no longer get my hair done, I decided this after having horrible salon experiences and hated every second of getting my hair done. I was introduced to Ashton through her cousin, and absolutely loved her. I recently was casted in a reality tv show on mtv. I give partial credit to ashton for my getting on there cause she helped me get the rocker do i felt best represented me. Trust me, next time you see me on the reunion show i can bet I will have just stepped out of Ashtons chair! Thanks doll!!!

I've followed Irma for years. Literally. She is the only person I have ever felt comfortable saying, "Do whatever you want" when it comes to my hair. She always helps me pick a cut and color that is just perfect for me and not to mention the season. She's so sweet and friendly and makes me feel comfortable when I'm in her chair. Granted that I have to book appts weeks in advance its ABSOLUTELY worth it. I get so many compliments on my hair when I get out of an appt that its crazy. Her styles are so easy to upkeep even after my appt. I recommend anyone and everyone to check her and Salon Aqua Blue out. You wont regret it!

By far the best hair dresser I've ever had! He's been cutting my hair for 2 years and it always looks perfect! I refuse to see anyone else! The salon itself is also great! Many salons have a pretentious feeling to them, but not at Aqua Blue. You'll feel right at home!

Salon Aqua Blue is Austin?s new locally owned salon and the new home of my stylist, Cig. Cig is very personable and full of compliments even on my bad hair days, but he is simply amazing on the days that he cuts and styles my hair. I highly recommend him to all of my girl friends and to all of my guys friends that are in need of updating. He has an awesome ability of making everyone feel at ease upon entering the salon and carefully listens to the needs of my hair. More inviting is his genuine honesty on the upkeep of my style concerning products, and my ability to maintain the style in between cuts. Cig is a must see for an awesome haircut and style for anyone who desires a cutting edge look. Cig is a breath of fresh air. Kudos for Salon Aqua Blue.

I went to Salon Aqua Blue for the first time the other day and had an incredible experience! My stylist, Ashton, gave me the best cut, color, and style that I have ever received in my life! She was friendly, personable, and extremely attentive. She listened carefully to what I wanted to do with my hair, and then made some excellent suggestions based on my specifications. She made my hair look healthier, more vibrant, and more cutting edge than it has in years! In fact, when I went out that night, one of my best friends told me that my hair looked better than she had ever seen it! I had an important event that evening, and I received multiple compliments from many of the attendees. I am so grateful to Ashton for improving my appearance so drastically and helping me to feel good about myself! Did I mention that she waxes as well? She did an awesome job on my eyebrows, and when I walked out of that salon I felt like a new person! I would recommend Ashton to any and everybody! She is a superlative stylist! I love Salon Aqua Blue, and I love Ashton!

Salon Aqua Blue is a beautiful, trendy and clean salon. I enjoy all of the stylist there, especially Ashton. Ashton has cut and colored my hair many times, she's a lot of fun and does a great job. I'm a guy who's always been told that I have a lot of hair, and weird/difficult curls and waves. Lucky for me Ashton's got skills! My hair always lays right, and I don't have to worry about rigorous explanation or re-cuts. Thanks Ash! You make this world a more beautiful place, through me!

I've been getting my hair done with Allison S. for a couple years now and really do leave the salon loving my hair. She is very energetic and definitely understands what I ask her to do and does it well. I would definitely recommend her to any and all of my friends. She knows just the right way to make anyone fell comfortable in her chair.
I also have enjoyed Aqua Blue, it is a great salon with very nice employees. After getting my hair done with Allison, a very nice gentlemen (sorry I don't remember his name) offered to do my make-up after hearing me say I had somewhere to go. He did a great job and made me look very natural. In fact, I need to go back to get some of that make up. Overall, Allison and Aqua Blue are top notch.

I went see Allison because I was in dire need to get my roots done. I recently moved to Austin and needed to find a new hair dresser, as well. Allison was spectacular with matching my color and creating lots of dimensional colors. She gave me a great cut and blowout, too. She was also very attentive and very friendly and talkative, which makes the hours go by quickly! Lover her and Aqua Blue Salon, too.

I don't know if it's the relaxing Austin "hip" atmosphere or the friendly stylists that make you want to stay and hang out...it certainly makes you want to keep going back. And you leave looking and feeling TEN years
younger! Ashton is awesome....and GORGEOUS! You feel lucky to have someone who is so put together herself transforming you! She works wonders with color and she really listens to what you want with a cut! I've never seen anyone cut hair with such confidence and flair!
Go by and check them out....INSIST on ASHTON ...you won't be sorry!!

Ashton was the first person to do my hair when I moved to Austin and I won't go anywhere else. She really listened to what I wanted and executed it perfectly. She always makes me feel welcome and even stays late to accommodate her clients. She's amazing at cutting and coloring. The salon itself is very nice with great art on the walls and everyone there is very nice. I strongly recommend making an appointment and finding your new hairstylist!!!

Jenna Soligo is new to Salon Aqua Blue but definitely not new to the art of hair! She does amazing color and cuts! I have now referred 4 people to see Jenna and they all love her and will continue to see her as their hair designer. Whether you are young or older she will give you the perfect style. She also gives a wonderful scalp/face/neck hot towel massage which is very relaxing. When she gets done with you, I know you will have the same high opinion I have! Check Jenna out at Salon Aqua Blue! 775-1233

I moved from NYC just about a year ago. I didn't know many people in town, so I picked this salon out of the "blue". Ashton did my color and cut and when I went home for the holidays last December, everyone remarked on my hair more than any other hair cut/color I've had in the past (included overpriced NYC salons!). Months later, I went back to Ashton, she not only remembered me, but made me feel better about the faux pax I had created when I tried to color my own hair. I came into the salon mortified w/ what I had done, but she fixed me up and gave me sage advice (to always trust someone else to do my color!) From now on, I will trust Ashton to do my color. Thanks Salon Aqua Blue!

SALON AQUA BLUE ! ROCKS!
I have never really had a professional haircut until I met the amazing hair crafter RONNIE! I used to cut my own hair and not a great job at it either. That?s how bad I used to be until I was told about Ronnie. He has cut my hair for a while and now I have a real hairstyle. I never knew what it was to have a "hair cut" until now. I used to just shave my head and now I have long manageable hair that everyone loves. Go REQUEST THE BEST!
Thank you Ronnie!

I met Allison Schingle about a year ago and she does everything to make me feel relaxed and stress free. Everytime I come in she asks me if I would like a drink and I always walk out feeling great about my new cut. It's hard to explain how down to earth Allison and the salon are but I recommend Allison to all of my girl friends and guy friends because I know that they would fall in love with her. Honestly, I've tried out other salons downtown that have comparable service, but their prices are outrageous and always entirely too crowded.

She is very easy to talk to, a great listener, and is everything I could ever want in a stylist.

See you there!

Pros: Stylists and front desk employees service and personality, spacious, very clean, and easy to find

Cons: not a thing

I've been to Salon 505, Bella's, Toni & Guy, Aziz, and Avenue Express. Robert at Aqua is a diamond in Austin. He's very good at what he does. He listened to what I wanted,instead of what most stylist wanted for me. He's also very reasonable with his pricing and he backs up his work, which many stylist do not even attempt to. I recommend Robert to people who love to find rare deals, but yet only want the best.

This was my second visit to this salon, but my first time with Ashton. My previous stylist moved back to Florida. I told Ashton that I wanted to keep the cut similiar but I wanted a fresher color. I also said I wanted it to have dimension and be shiny. She spent three hours coloring, cutting, and washing my hair but it looks amazing. She cut it wet, cut it dry and styled it nice and straight. My hair looks healthy and I have received tons of compliments. If you are looking for a stylist who can cut and color equally well, Ashton is the one for you!

I began going to Ronny and Robert several years ago when they were at another salon in town, and followed them here. It took awhile for Aqua Blue to get up and running, thanks to crazy City of Austin delays, but it was worth the wait! The salon itself is comfortable and convenient and all that, but the REAL reason to choose any salon is, of course, the stylists. You can't beat Ronny and Robert!! I go to Ronny for cuts and Robert for color, but that is just because they were limited that way at their previous place - I would be comfortable with either of them both cutting and coloring my hair - and I am NOT easy to please when it comes to my hair or stylist!! You go, guys!

OK, so I just moved to the city back in December, and needed a hair-cut bad, and had NO idea where to go. I called another place on here that got great ratings, and the lady on the phone I was trying to make an appointment with was RUDE!! So, I decided that since this place was new and had good reviews I would give them my businees rather than a place that obviously thinks they're too good for new customers. Everyone was very nice, and the place was very clean! I wanted to decently major change...lose a lot of length and new style. Tricia was fantastic! Almost 100% exactly what I wanted. but I really think the reason it wasn't 100% was more my hair than her skills. I loved this place, and will definetely be going back for trims and future services! Can't wait til they start doing waxing! And, for those who don't know....the salon has a website on MYSPACE. Seeing pictures before I went in would've helped me decide to go there in the first place.

Pros: Close to popular area, reasonably priced

Cons: closed Sun and Mon, pretty busy Sat.
