If you have curly hair, you have to see Kristy at Ritual Salon. She gives me the best cut that I have ever had. She knows how to style it curly and blow it out straight. She also colors my eyebrows and they come out perfect everytime. They always have the latest and best products available as well. Everyone is always so nice and I always receive great service.

I have been going to this salon for over 2 years and will go no other place! If you are looking for a welcoming, upbeat, trendy environment, with experienced professional staff and excellent consultations from the stylists, go here! I would HIGHLY recommend Willow and Maya. I always leave with a great cut every 5 weeks. My experience with both has been wonderful! Not only are they good at what they do, its always a great time catching up and chatting. Both are very friendly and personable. They are two crazy, hip ladies :)

Since going to Ritual Salon, I've been introduced to two great products, Davines Mat moulding gesso and Kevin Murphy Night Rider, both are excellent and would recommend!

Scheduling an appointment is always easy. Their online booking provides a simple log in to your account where you can set up, change and confirm your appointments. This is SUPER handy! Love this feature. You also get an email reminder of your upcoming appointment and with one click, confirm. The salon is very easy to get to, one block off 6th with lots of parking.

There are many things that set this salon apart from all others. If you're searching for "that" salon, search no further.

What a wonderful hair experience! I remained with this Salon when it transitioned from Salon Bloom and I still love it. Christy is extraordinary and she has been cutting my hair since I arrived in Austin almost 5 years ago. I have sent friends and family to hear and will continue to do so. She is THE BEST EVER!!!!!! Knows how the cut and style hair, LISTENS to our concerns, is ALWAYS on time, up on all of the current hair trends, enthusiastic, professional and I just LOVE HER. The overall staff is just wonderful. Everyone is courteous, professional and friendly. I would highly encourage anyone who needs a new hair venue to make this number ONE priority on your list.

I have been going to Ritual Salon for a while now, I followed my hair stylist there after she left her previous salon. My experience at Ritual is nothing but amazing every time. The staff is very nice and professional, they are always helpful (especially since I tend to call last minute to schedule appointments, they always work with me). Sharamey is the best hair stylist I've ever had! I love her and I will follow her anywhere and have. I've gone to her for 8 years now and she knows my hair better than I know it myself. She's so good I sent my mom and my sister to her and they've both been using her for a couple of years now too and have nothing but positive things to say as well. I would also recommend any of the other stylists as well, they all seem wonderful! Overall, I love Ritual and have never had a negative experience there and will always follow Sharamey where ever she goes. I would definitely recommend both her and the salon to anyone!

Through a great recommendation of one of my closest friends I found Erica about four years ago. She has been phenomenal in styling and shaping my hair exactly how I wanted on over 50 visits since that time. After going to her for about a year, she discussed with me some ideas she had for transforming my look, for what a new and better style might be for me. I was resistant to change but ultimately left my fate and look in her talented hands. She created a completely new style for me that was a rave hit! Initially I received so many compliments and comments like I look skinnier, younger, and even taller! Shoot if a hairstyle can do that then you'd better get in there to see Erica STAT!! An ex-girlfriend even told me I look so good that I need to marry Erica since she improved my appearance so much. Well rather than mess up a good thing I think I'll just keep her as my one and only style consultant and keep coming back! She's continued to do an amazing job keeping me looking my best over many years. Erica ROCKS! And Ritual Salon is very cool too.

Erica, my stylist not only makes my unruly hair look incredible but she makes the time it takes to achieve that aim a pleasure. If your looking for a great atmosphere to go and get your hair cut you need to give them a call. You walk in and are greeted by smiling people offering you a drink and asking if you need anything. The attention to service is welcoming in a time where customer service seems like a rarity.

I had tried several stylists around Austin. When I started to grow my hair out, no one could cut it right. I have very coarse, thick hair. Valerie has worked wonders. It looks shiny and healthy. She always has great recommendations. I don't even want or need to have input. I just let her work her magic. Thanks Valerie!

Ever since I went to Erica Cantu for the first time 12 years ago, I?ve been hooked. While living in Los Angeles, I sometimes let my hair grow out just so I could have her work her magic when I came back. She?s a true professional and has trained at some of the most prestigious academies around the country. Furthermore, having frequented two of the most famous salons in Beverly Hills, I can honestly say that Erica is far better than them (and charges way less too!)

Calling her service a "haircut" is the understatement of the century: it?s an experience. My hair grows so fast she should be charging me double, and watching her texturize, craft, and mold that titanic mess on my head into something spectacular is what it must have been like watching Rodin at work.

Most importantly, she doesn?t just treat you like a client, she treats you like a friend ? going above and beyond to make sure you?re happy. Oh and as a few others have mentioned, she?s easy on the eyes too.

Ritual Salon itself is great too. Great service, complimentary drinks, a clean/modern atmosphere, and a rarity in downtown: lots of parking.

Love this salon, but specifically my stylist, Valerie Martin. I've been seeing Valerie for 3 or 4 years. and LOVE her! She always listens to what I want and explains why it will or won't work for me. My hair is looking the best it has in many years because of her.

Ritual is a lovely salon with a great location. Parking is never a problem,either.

Valerie is the absolute best - especially with my curly, hard to manage, coarse, thick hair!! I now have hair that is longer, smoother, and shinier than I have ever had in my life. Where do I begin... well, I used to always wear my hair curly. I started some softening treatments to control the frizz a bit. Then I wanted to grow it out some and perhaps blow it out straight, but was worried about the damage that could be done to my hair with all the processes I put it through. Color, highlights, softening... and now best of all is the Global Keratin treatment I recently had with Valerie a few weeks ago. I have the healthiest, shiniest, smoothest hair I could possibly ask for. Blowing it out is a snap as it only has a very slight wave, if that, to it. I absolutely love my hair. Valerie takes her time, she evaluates the health and condition of your hair before doing a thing. This is not a one size fits all deal whatsoever. I've never received so many compliments on my hair as I have been receiving since getting my hair done by Valerie. For those curly-haired girls out there you need to visit Valerie.. whether you want to stay curly or go straight, she knows exactly what to do to make and keep you happy!!!

I discovered Ritual Salon on a random walk around the neighborhood about 8 months ago. My stylist is Erica Cantu. Erica is super pretty, so when I was asked what I want to do with my hair, I said "I want a haircut that when I walk in somewhere, the general comment is "now that's a great head of hair!". Recently, I found myself in a circumstance of not being able to make it to the salon for a good 10 weeks. Normally after almost three months without a haircut, I'd look like a walking disaster. But I'll be darned if my hair still didn't look great even after all this time! Not to mention that she is so fun to talk to! She's very upbeat, laughs and smiles all the time.

Guys, do yourself a favor and get to Ritual for your next cut and ask for Erica! While you wait, you can even have complimentary beer, wine, sodas, or water. They really take good care of their clientele!

I travel all the way from Richmond, Virginia twice a year to get my hair cut here. And not just because of how cool everyone is but because Willow Witten totally rocks. Not only does she know how to cut, but when it comes to color - she has a magical gift of knowing just what you need. I would not let anyone color or cut my hair. And the fact that I travel 1500 miles to make it happen, well - that says it all. If you want a great experience, fun people, courteous treatment and excellent hair .. Willow Witten & Ritual Salon make it happen.

.... and I regretted both times. Although it has recently changed from Salon Bloom to Ritual Salon, they give the same great service and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. I will never stray again. Both Kristy and Shannon are great stylists and fun to talk to. (they will even let you drink whiskey while you get your hairs cut). Check 'em out!

Ritual Salon describes itself as an "inviting salon where you will receive top of the line, precision cutting, multi-dimensional coloring." I found that the salon lives up to its reputation, and much, much more. My stylist, Erica, is truly amazing..her talent matches that of any stylist that you would find in a high end salon in New York or LA...attentive, with an expert eye towards cutting- edge fashion. What makes Erica so special is she brings not only her talent, but a homegrown aesthetic that is truly Austin. Her laugh is contagious, and I am only but one of many clients that have been coming to see her for several years. She makes the "cut" an experience..I would highly recommend Erica, and Ritual Salon.

When it comes to my hair I am HARD to please. I have been to salons ALL OVER Austin, but never went to the same stylist twice. Two and a half years ago that all changed when I found VAL. Someone had screwed up my previous haircut so I went to Val hoping she could save me. She not only corrected the previous stylist's mistake but gave me the best hair cut of my life and continues to do so to this day. She is the most knowledgeable hairstylist I've ever been to and in the past two years has changed my hair by recommending new products and telling me which to avoid, as well as giving me tips and tricks on how to make my hair more manageable and healthy. Once you try Val you'll never be able to go to another stylist again. Trust me, I would know...I recently moved to Dallas and still make the drive to see Val every few months! Give Ritual Salon a call and ask for VALERIE. It will be the best decision you've ever made for your hair. : )

Valerie has been making me beautiful for years! She always knows what do to whether I'm letting it grow out or want to go radically short. Her experience shines! I walked away this past weekend with a new rockin' color and awesome trim. If you want to try someone new with confidence call Val. You won't regret it. :)

Valerie's haircuts are the absolute answer to a great curly hair experience. My hair needed some serious help today when I went to Valerie. I have been trying to grow it out and it had been a LONG time since my last cut. She created a great look that I didn't even know was possible with my hair. She didn't cut too much off and she knew exactly how to style it. I walked out of that salon thrilled with my haircut. Make your hair happy and book an appointment with Valerie.

The location is great and the salon is chic with a great vibe. Love the online booking!

It's not that Bridget has been taking care of the family for almost 9 yrs...or that the salon is truly booming after she became the new owner...or that you get refreshments (ask for the Mimosa on Saturdays...hint hint).

It is that the place is really just hopping and busy with talented stylists. The place is chic, the mood is awesome, the music on the sound system makes you wanna bob your head (discouraged to prevent mishaps..just saying). The staff is is truly amazing, and know their stuff.

DO: Get your ass down here next time you need to fix your hair and get yourself an experience.

DONT: Spend more time at the old and washed up place you current frequent because you don't want to break up with your current stylist.

I've known the owner, Bridget, for years. I trust her completely and she does a fabulous job every time I come in. All the other stylists have loyal returning clients and I would let any one of them do my hair in a heartbeat. The salon is beautifully decorated and inviting. Bridget has done an amazing job creating an atmosphere of style, fun and relaxation. The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful. The salon also offers online booking and appointment confirmations, which are so great for someone like me who is always on a computer.
In a nutshell, this is my favorite salon in Austin. I look forward to every appointment because I know I will leave looking and feeling great! Go check them out ASAP!

I have been going to this salon, now named Ritual, for years. Shannon has always been my stylist and I am very happy with her work. She really listens when I tell her what I want and delivers great results. Her highlights are the best I've ever gotten.

The free parking in front of the salon is also nice. No hunting for a spot or feeding a meter. Just park and walk in. Easy.
