I had my eyebrows waxed here about 3 weeks ago. I never get my eyebrows waxed, I usually do them myself but I thought I would get them touched up for a change. This place had good reviews on hair so I thought ok, I'll give it a try, why

Lili has been doing my hair for over 2 years now and not only do i love it, but i get so many compliments i had to start carrying her card to give to people. I have literally had people stop me at the grocery store to ask me who does my hair. I will follow her anywhere. I really dig the new digs too. Hairy Situations is stylish and very laid back. If you are a student like me, you will love it.

My Story......I've been a client of Rebekah's for over 8 years and I'm fashionably late in writing this review. I reside in south eastern part of the United States. My salon contracts with Rebekah every 8 weeks to consult and cut a few selected clients hair. She has never missed her commitment to provide her services, consults and fly into our area for several days. In my area, she has waiting list for new clients and you are lucky if you are selected to be one of her clients. If you live in Austin and she has availability, I would make an appointment immediately. She is able to identify the different textures of hair, the characteristics of your face then designs a style/cut that really works for you and your personality. I tell her a few things I am looking for in my hair design and she takes it from there. I have never seen anyone leave that did not look less than FABULOUS after receiving services from Rebekah. Personally, I've always had the WOW factor when leave the salon. She's also a lot of fun and provides me with styling tips which I am easily able to duplicate myself. After I left the salon the first time Rebekah cut my hair, I was stopped twice in the first hour by people asking who your stylist is. My husband even commented how good my hair looks! He never notices anything. Thank you, Rebekah for your continued service to a southern hospitality state. >"" 2

Rhonda has cut my hair for almost 20 years. I have followed her everywhere. Obviously she does a GREAT job on my crazy hair. I don't even have to think about it. She cuts it so I don't have to do anything with my curly wild hair. I like Hairly Situations too...lots of things to do on Congress, wine while you wait, nice staff. I hope she doesn't move again.

nice, clean, trendy place.
- my true rave is about my stylist Rhonda Peters :)

I've entrusted Rhonda with my hair cut & color since 2006 and trust my hair ONLY to her. She fixes what I mess up by trying to do things myself, lol, and has given me exactly what I wanted when I ask for it. This includes highlights, lowlights, haircuts (long like the exact Jennifer Anistion cut and color & short cut like Victoria Beckham's).

Cut is about $50 - which I don't mind because she does such a good job I only have to go every few months, if not longer than that. Color (last time I had it done) was $80 partial & $100 full highlight. This includes up to 3 different colors (highlights & lowlights)!!! She can make them chunky or natural (I've had both done before & they look awesome!).

Bottom line: I always get compliments on my hair :)

Rhonda and I have been friends for a few years now. I thought going to her for haircuts would be fun since I know her. Well, on my way to my first haircut I realized how akward it would be if she didn't do a good job or if I didn't like the cut, and I started second guessing my decision to go to her. Thank God she is an incredible stylist. Not only do we have fun during my haircuts (she has a great sense of humor,) but she is so good at what she does! I have very flat hair but I don't like to spend time on it. Rhonda always makes sure I have a cut that I don't have to maintain or worry about. I will continue going to her as long as she's cutting hair!

Most of my life I've hopped from one stylist to another, but I've been so happy with Rhonda Peters' cuts that I've stayed with her for a few years now.

Rhonda always listens to my requests but also comes up with great cuts even if I can't make up my mind. I like low-maintenance, and she respects that and gives me cuts that look good without a lot of styling. And they grow out well too.

I just followed Rhonda to Hairy Situations, and it's a fun South Congress environment with convenient hours and great amenities like accessible parking and even wine while you wait!

Joseph is the best. He has been doing me for years.... my hair and color that is!!!!!! He always knows what looks best on me. And will tell me the truth if I want to attempt something too crazy. He will offer solutions and suggestions while listening to what I am trying to achieve. He is awesome with color and able to cut and style my difficult natural curly hair. Those of you with frizzy curly hair can relate. I live in San Antonio but make the trip to Austin with no problem. He is so worth the drive.

Just stopped in the other night late when every one was about to leave and Jessica said she would stay late to do my hair she was so nice and my hair looked so great when i left. How often does some one stay late for some one they don't even know. I was so happy with my cut and how it looked. i would highly recommend Jessica and hairy situations to everyone.

I had a great experience at Hairy Situations Salon yesterday! I have problem hair (super fine but thick, thick, thick) and have always had a hard time finding someone that can work with it. Rachel was able make it look great and let me know what products would work best for what I want. Highly recommended.

Ann Shackelford, for the last 7 years, consistently doing kinda super color, cuts, and awesome up do's for me. I have followed her to her different shops, and really like her most current spot at Fringe Salon. My long thick locks only deserve the best. :0) Keep up the good work Ann!

I was first recommended to see Anne back NINE years ago. She fixed my awful coloring and created a beautiful color for me and will not steer me in a wrong direction. I'll ask her for some colors or styles that interest me, and she will listen and coach me on what would be best for my face shape and skin tone. Each year we change up the style ,and I'm always happy. With this LONG and THICK hair I don't trust anyone else! She can turn my lion's mane into a smooth and silky designer look. I always marvel at her work. I've faithfully followed her for all these years, and now she's even closer to me....check her out at Fringe Salon.

Thanks again for a job well done Anne!

I've been going to Johanna for over a year and I must say that I always leave more than satisfied. I began going to her after cutting my hair very short and damaging it with repeat coloring. It was completely fired and over-processed but thanks to Johanna, my hair is healthy and growing beautifully. She respects my wants and opinions while always keeping the health of my hair in mind. I completely trust her. I think she's AMAZING and would recommend her to anyone. Not only was Johnanna great but the receptionist were great as well. I have a terrible habit of forgetting my appointment times and really appreciated the appointment reminder I received from the receptionist the night before. They were really sweet and very attentive.

A close friend of mine referred me to Hairy Situations. At first I was skeptical, as I usually am when I first step foot into a new salon and entrust a stranger with my hair.

The first experience wasn?t too bad, the stylist was fun and friendly. My haircut was not what I was expecting (way too short), but the overall experience was ?alright.?

I ventured back into Hairy Situations trying out various stylists, hoping to find ?my new stylist.? Most of the men?s cuts I received were tolerable, except for a young blonde girl who butchered my hair with thinning shears.

My last and final trip to Hairy Situations did not even end with a tragic haircut. I called in, spoke to a receptionist and set an appointment with Heather. Approximately 25 minutes later, I received a phone call asking if I could come in 15 minutes earlier. I thought, ?Great I could use the extra 15 minutes to run a few errands.? So I entered the time of the appointment into my phone, set a reminder and went on with my day.

I showed up for my hair appointment 20 minutes early, only to find out that the receptionist ?accidentally? told me 5:45pm instead of 4:45pm. The receptionist spoke with Heather about what had happened. Heather declined to set aside 30 minutes out of her day to correct the receptionist?s error.

I was supposed to be at an event at 7:00pm, but I was forced to be late, because I had to find a decent salon in Austin that was still open. I called around and ended up at Topaz Salon, where I found a great stylist.

What a Hairy Situation!

I would follow Anne to the ends of the earth, she's that great! Color, style, the works! Fortunately for all of us she's not going that far. At Fringe the parking will be much better and the distance is about the same. Fringe is a good move for her.

After meeting my hair stylist here I went for a completely drastic look and it turned out really well. The staff was amazing and my stylist even gave snacks while I waited to get my color done. Plus its located on South Congress.

I LOVE ANNE SHACKELFORD! It's been 5 years since I highlighted my hair and last week I took a leap to go from a brunette to basically a blond. It looks so amazing my husband, kids and friends can't believe it. Anne is so talented and knows her stuff. I will never go to anyone else, she's not only good with scissors but she is also a delightful person who i enjoyed spending time with. Congratulations on a job well done girl!

I saw Heather Barclay for the first time on Saturday, and she gave me the best haircut I think I've ever had. I have serious hair issues (curly hair that I straighten regularly, with mixed results), and she gave me a cut that actually looks good when I do it myself! She took her time with me even though she was recovering from surgery, and made sure that I was comfortable with what she was doing. I HIGHLY recommend Heather Barclay. She's amazing!

Anne is wonderful! I have been going to her for over a year and love her. She cuts my hair and waxes my eyebrows. Both of which I have had very bad experiences at other salons in Austin. I was nervous when I first went to her because I have very long thick hair and a lot of stylists do a horrible job (leaving it longer on one side than the other, missing small sections completely, etc). However, Anne does an amazing job and I completely trust her. I feel like she realy listens to me and respects my wants and opinions. I have recommended her to several of my friends that think she is amazing as well. Plus, she always manages to fit me in, even with my difficult schedule.

I've been going to hairy situations for a couple years, now and I love it! The atmosphere is great: it's very austin, but relaxing. Brooke styles my hair and she always know exactly what I want. I hopped from stylist to stylist and was never happy. I have really really thick hair and Brooke is the only person I have found that takes the time to cut it right. She's really friendly, but not overly so. Everything is great from start to finish. She even messages my head when she shampoos!

I highly recommend her and anyone else who works at hairy situations.

I went in to see if Pam could fix the bad mess of hair that Urban Betty left me with, and she is a genius. Her hair color technique is amazing and she is upfront and honest about what she can and cannot do. She is a true professional and the salon was awesome. I highly recommend getting an appointment if you want to look your best.

I see Heather Barclay here and she is phenomenal. I've been going to her for 8+ years and she is talented and also a very nice person.

I followed her to this salon (she's been at 3 others since I started going to her) and this is my favorite one. The location is nice (if you can't park on Congress just turn onto one of the side streets. I've never had to park very far). The decor is fun and the other stylists seem nice. The receptionists are decent but none of them have ever blown my socks off. However my interaction with them is limited because Heather schedules her own appointments, run the credit cards, etc.

I had a bad experience at another local salon and had to look for somebody to fix my hair immediately. Thankfully, I was told Jorge could take me in late when I called Hairy Situations looking for somebody to help with my hair. Well, Jorge was incredible. I am EXTREMELY picky about what I want for my hair and have been known to fluster more than one hairstylist, but Jorge handled everything expertly and was just a total pro. He listened to what I had to say, gave me feedback, explained the different options and what each would do, etc. Once we decided what was best, Jorge went to work and the results were amazing! I absolutely LOVE my hair right now!! It is the exact color I wanted. I have never gushed about a hair stylist, but Jorge definitely deserves it!!

Aside from his great professional skills, he has a great personality. He made me feel comfortable and at ease. Go to Jorge, you will not be disappointed!!!

I absolutely LOVE my hair right now!! It is the exact color I wanted. I have never gushed about a hair stylist, but Jorge definitely deserves it!!

Aside from his great professional skills, he has a great personality. He made me feel comfortable and at ease. Go to Jorge, you will not be disappointed!!!

Pros: GREAT Hairstylist; Wine for you to relax!

Cons: Parking on S. Congress can be tricky

After an exhausting and horrifying search for a good stylist in Austin I found Hairy Situations. My first visit was about a month ago with Sarah and she did an awesome job! Thanks Sarah! I went back today and had an appointment with Pamela. Yet another awesome haircut! Thanks Pamela!

I highly recommend Hairy Situations to anyone in need of a good salon. Especially if you've been through a salon nightmare like me. The stylists here will really put you at ease and they do a great job.

Pros: Great, friendly staff and the stylists are wonderful.

Cons: Parking would be a little irritating for someone who doesn't want to walk. Which I don't mind doing.

Her pedicures are sublime and gorgeous. She gives the BEST foot pampering experience ever. Plus, the results are a must have for strappy sandles :)

Mohawks to mother-in-law Lindsey's got you covered!
I first met Lindsey when I was planning fashion show events, she came highly recommended to me by one of my featuring designers. She amazed me by coordinating hair and make up for the entire show, which is no small task. Everything look great and ran very nearly on time. Since then she has done a correction on my hair, saved my hair when it was fried and keeps it looking amazing! I get tons of compliments!
My reds stay in which is nothing short of a miracle. I have also brought both my mom and my mother-in-law, they both love her too.
My only regret is that I didn't fly her to NY to do styling for my wedding (and mom agrees) my pictures would have looked so much better!

I was recommended Hairy Situations from a friend of mine. I then came to City search and read all the various reviews of Hairy Situations and the stylists. Out of the list of reviews I really liked the reviews I read about Anne and then looked further at her website. I've been going to Anne for a couple of years now. I'm extremely picky about my hair stylist and was so pleased to find someone to do my cut and hi-lights that I felt confident in. My highlights last forever it seems. I always leave feeling "Oh so pretty" and would recommend her to anyone. If you want to make an appointment with her you can get her contact information from the receptionist and Anne is always very prompt about returning calls. I'm so glad I found city search reviews that led me to Anne.

Pros: Everything about the cut, color and style

Cons: None

I've been living in Austin for 3 years and have been driving to Houston to get my haircut and colored... I had tried a few stylist here in town and had HORRIBLE experiences, so I gave up... till I cut 9 inches off and hated it and needed a quick fix, I decided to give an Austin stylist one more chance... A male friend referred me to Penny... and I've never been more pleased. It's the best cut I've had in a long time and I've been back twice... needless to say, her price is great, and she listens and has the patience of a god. I couldn't be happier!

Pros: availability, product selection

Penny Boone is an awesome stylist and an awesome person. She always makes my hair look fantastic. Every time she does my hair I get constant compliments. I'm really confused as to why she doesn't have more reviews on here. I have sent tons of my friends to her and I have never heard a single complaint. As far as I know everyone I have sent to her has become a long term client. She is super fun to talk to and she always knows what to do, even when I don't. Do yourself a favor and go see Penny, you won't be sorry.

Cons: parking, the music (usually)

i grew up in austin and had looked for the perfect stylist for years. finally i found lindsey who not only knows how to color my hair without it ever drying out in the slightest, but she completely evaluated and understood my hair after the first cut. not a single cut has ever gone wrong and i have pretty complicated hair to master. we have gone both long and short and everything always looks perfect.

i moved to nyc and she even comes and does my hair in my home. talk about first class service.

not to mention every time she cuts my hair and waxes my eyebrows i get exponential amounts of action.
if you're looking to get some action ( in the good way), lindsey sanders it is.

Pros: lindsey gives good head massages and most likely cares more about your hair than you do

Cons: all of the above doesn't seem possible but it is

I've gotten several haircuts and color treatments done to my hair this year alone by Lindsey and each time it has turned out amazing. She's always been attentive with my needs throughout the process of getting my hair done, has made sure I know how to maintain the colors that have been put in, and has always produced a hair style that has been equal or better than the vision I've had for it. The colors are always dead on, the styles are edgy without being rediculous, and the entire expirence has been great. Plus, she's always willing to work me in, within reason of coarse. I've gotten some pretty horrifying hair styles done in my past, and I can honestly say that she is the best hair stylist I've been to. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is decerning about who touches thier hair.

Pros: Service, Atmosphere, Wine and Soda served

Cons: Parking

I have very difficult hair to cut and dye. Lindsey always takes her time and gives me the best available. I won't let any other hair dresser touch my hair after being her client! She always offers great conversation and a fresh personality. I highly recommend! Book in advance as she is BUSY!
I don't drink wine and Linsey is still worth going to get my hair done.

I have been demanding perfection of my stylist and colorist since I was fourteen. I have fired more stylists than I can remember. I was fired by a stylist a few years back. Well, he had too much of my demands and talked me into shaving my head. I began thinking a few years back that I should just date a stylist. Well, turns out that Lindsey is the best stylist that I have ever met and I married her. She talked me into growing my hair out after we started dating. She was only waxing my eyebrows at first. And, she is the best at that too. Since I grew my hair, it has been whatever color we decide on for the season or week. And, it always looks great and stays healthy, no matter how extreme the change is. Honestly, she recently fired me from getting my hair cut by her. She got tired of me wanting her to stop to cut my hair as we were getting ready to go out. Penny Boone, also at Hairy Situations, styled my hair for the first time the other day and she was amazing. My expectations were far surpassed by Penny's talent. I will never let Lindsey fire me from coloring my hair though, even though she has tried. Good luck with that, Lindsey. I know rare talent when I find it. Bottom line, Lindsey and Penny are fantastic. I mean it. By the way, Lindsey puts up with a lot of high maintenance or difficult clients and is very professional and gracious with them. I have witnessed it. However, few people surpass my high maintenance ways. So, don't feel that she would have a problem with you if you are a perfectionist. Nothing would make me happier than a lot of picky people going to see Lindsey and giving her the trouble that I used too. Tell Penny that I said hello, too.

Pros: professional salon equally adept at edgy styles and weddings and formals

Cons: free wine but no Oregon Pinot Noir or Veuve

Having great hair is so very important to me. I was a stylist myself for 9 years before deciding to explore other avenues. Anne and I worked together for a few years and in all my years as a stylist she was the only one I could ever trust to do a perfect job every time! I have lived in Dallas now for the past two years and have jumped from salon to salon paying outrageous prices in the hopes that my hair would look somewhat decent. It never happened. I finally decided to hell with it and started driving to Austin to see Anne again a few months ago. She has done a great job as usual and my hair hasn't looked better in years! I will never make the mistake of going to anyone else again. She has a great work echic and the perfection literally shows! It is worth the drive everytime and I feel so beautiful agian!

She is an amazing colorist. I have been seeing her for years now and everytime I walk out of the salon my hair is fabulous, before her I wanted to hide my head when I walked out the door so I could go home and fix it! She has a lot of her work posted on Shutterfly, the link is tricky, but if you copy and paste what I have below and add "(dot)com" after "shutterfly" (be sure to join the link togther so there are no spaces) then you should be able to see her stuff. I know she'll email you the link if you just ask. Hunt no more for the best stylist in Austin, go see Anne Shackelford!!!

I luckily got hooked up with Brooke Ellington because the stylist I use to go to quit and the receptionist recommended Brooke. Thank God for my last stylist quiting. I am so happy time and time again with my haircuts and Brooke's off beat humor makes the cut go by way too quickly. Brooke is AWESOME.
