Krissy did an awesome color!!!! I am a 57 year old man and was very iffy about getting my hair colored bc I didnt want it to look fake where people could tell. But she did a wonderful job of matching it so close to my natural color and it looks so good! Defintally glad I decided to try it out and will defintally be back once my grey starts to show again!

I am a guy and it is really hard to find someone that cuts guys hair to where you do not look like every other dude out there! I have kinda long shaggy hair and Krissy used a razor to really make it lay right because I also have very thick crazy hair but it looked sooo good once she got done I was so amazed! Ive never had my haircut with a razor before but I will prob always ask for a razor cut from now on and i highly recommend krissy furnish to anyone i've already told all my friends!

I have been trying to find a stylist that can actually use a razor without butchering my haircut! Every place I have been I have not been very satisfied at all! I found Krissy on craigslist and thank god I did because I finally found a stylist that can cut my hair with a tazor exactally how I have been wanting it for the longest time! Thank you Krissy for listening and finally giving me the cut I've always wanted!!!

I have dirty blonde hair and am in constant need of highlights. Krissy does an excellent job of making my hair an awesome light blonde, not yellow or brassy. I highly recommend this clean, efficient, beautiful salon right off of Bee Caves. There's plenty of places nearby to grab a bite to eat afterwards.

I have been looking for a new stylist because nobody can seem to get my color exactally how I want it! I found Krissy through styleseat and she nailed it on the first try and the color has stayed longer than any other color Ive had done! I also love my cut as well so I will defintally return and highly recommend her to anybody!

I have been going to Lisa (the owner) since I was 14 years old! I am now 31 and would never think about going to anyone but Lisa! She is an expert colorist! I just got my highlighted today and yet again, she has done an amazing job! The staff and atmosphere at Salone di Essenza are the best!

I have been going to Lisa(the owner) and Alex for over a year now. excellent talent and customer service!!! Everyone there is professional and genuinely nice! They always offer complimentary wine, sodas, tea, juice or coffee. I get my hair hilighted and cut every 4-5 weeks here. Recently, Alex did the keratin infusion for me. I LOVE it! I am an attorney with 2 small children. My hair is ready in half the time and I get so many compliments. Keratin is like brazillian blw out without fermaldahide. Much more natural and silky smooth. I am very picky about where I go and who does my hair.....you will look and feel great after a visit here!!!They are A+ in my book and I am a hard grader.

I had been searching for a new stylist for months and then discovered Alex! She corrected a botched cut and color and in the quickest time I've ever experienced. She is professional, genial and uses the best products (Kevin Murphy). I highly recommend her for cut, color, up-do's, make-overs and waxing ... she does it all and she does a fantastic job!

Alex has been styling my hair for several months and I absolutely LOVE her and this salon! I was referred to Alex by my sister... she always makes my sister and I look great! I moved to Austin last year, from California and I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to find a salon that I liked. I am so happy to have found Alex! She is the best! :)

I am always nervous about going to a new salon, but Shannon definately eased my nerves. She sat with me and answered all my questions about changing my haircolor and style and gave suggestions about what would look good for my skin tone and face shape. She was not pushy at all! I hate when stylists do whatever they want and don't listen to what I want. My hair looks great and it is just what I wanted! I have gotten so many compliments on my hair that I just had to write a review! Shannon, thank you so much and you have a loyal customer for life!

I was referred to this salon almost 2 years ago and have not have had one bad experience. I go for cut&color and my daughter goes for cuts. The owner is very in tune to the needs of the client. I can definately recommend Lisa&Alex to listen to what you want and do an awesome job. I am so happy to have found this salon!

I'm pretty sure I didn't ask for an asymmetrical haircut. The girl didn't ask very many questions and pretty much butchered my hair. Had she actually styled it instead of just blow-drying it, I would have noticed then and there that something was absolutely wrong with it. I wish I had had the same experience everyone else has had, maybe it's just the stylist. I don't think that Lauren has been cutting hair long enough to be on her own yet. She's very personable, she had a great attitude. I'm sure in time with experience she'll be a great stylist. Until then, I can't recommend her.

I am very pleased with the way she handles my hair and she always makes sure i'm comfortable. Very sweet person.

I was a little bit nervous when I went to get my hair cut and colored here. I haven't really found a stylist in Austin that I like enough to keep going back to. I found Alex and Salone di Essenza from a coworker. I was nervous because I really wanted a total new look. I went in with long brown hair and a walked out with a short, sassy, and blonde highlighted new hairdo! I loved it! Alex helped me pick the color because I was very indecisive and just kind or scared to go with blonde but it looks great! I have received many compliments and I will be back for sure!

I have recently started going to Saolne di Essenza as my stylist is now there. (I will follow her anywhere)The place is really nice and offers a wide range of services all with a Mona Fizz. (A really yummy drink!) My stylist is Alex and she is great. She always gives me a cut I love and the color I want for a reasonable price. She also does waxing which is really convenient as I can go in and get all my services done at once. Really nice for someone who travels alot for work. You should definitely make an appointment today and ask for Alex!

I went to Salone Di Essenza for a new look. My stylist was Alex Elizondo. She really listened to what i wanted and didn't want and gave me a beautiful look to turn heads. She took her time with me and really explained everything she was going to do to my hair! The product line she used made a huge difference on my hair and was very reasonably priced for the value! The outcome of my new look really made my day and made me a new woman! She is the sweetest stylist and totally worth going and seeing!

With few frills but superb service, this hidden gem is one of the best salons in town. It's all because of the talent and attitude of every person there. Absolute Tops in my book for any professional in Austin is an unassuming superstar, Jennifer Hill. Superb!!! cuts and Exquisite!!! color that is totally personalized are the norm without attitude or bows to trends but rather true attention to the individual. In addition to Jennifer, everyone here knows how to relate color to skin-tone; cut to hair type, features, and lifestyle: and genuinely give good in-depth professional advice on how to do-it-yourself to get salon perfect results. Product lines for services and for home care are the best available and they help you make selections that are truly tailored for each individual, not for the hyped product of the month. \r
\r
Back to Jennifer, she's a gem and a patient, quietly intelligent and intuitive superstar who can discuss philosophy as easily as body art and makes her clients look fabulous. \r
\r
If you're looking for a chichi salon that faux fawns on you for $$$$ this ain't the place. If you're looking for results and support without hype, this is it. A++-List all the way - In LA or NY you'd have to know someone to get in, here you can even walk-in (until the word gets out). This place isn't trendy looking but you will be!

Pros: Superlative color and cuts, Great service, Great Product Lines even hard to find ones like Australia's Kevin Murphy. No prima donnas here

Cons: None, unless you choose hip looking studios with snotty personnel rather than excellent professionals, then this isn't your salon

i've gone to jennifer for my last 3 or 4 haircuts and this girl knows what she's doing. this is coming from a guy who has tried 4 or 5 different high end salons since moving here a year ago. i'm a guy and have very thick/coarse hair, so its not the easiest to tame. you know a stylist is good if they can do my haircut as short as it only using scissors (no electric razor here). I have gotten shorter cuts from her and she's managed to do them very well without a guard on the razor - so you don't get that gross boxy ledge that you get when you go to the cheap places. she's very meticulous and uses different techniques to texturize etc. she isn't pushy about products, and she's very personable and talkative. the salon on the whole is great. i'm always offered a beverage and its very chill. i feel like the stylists here really take their time here and aren't trying to rush you out the door to get to their next client. i reccomend this place highly, so do yourself a favor and see jennifer!

Pros: skill, ambience, great product, everything!

This is the second time I've been to this Salon. I love the atmosphere. Curry has done my hair many times and everytime she knows just what I am wanting. I have never been disappointed by her. I just love what she does with my hair. I trust her totally.

I've been to most of the salons in Westlake and by far this salon is the best. I don't know if this helps clients but when I moved to Austin I was ScAreD for someone new to do my hair. Lisa and Virginia are GooD I've been to both so if your new to Austin try either of them. I hope this helps.\r

-The Stylist are Nice and they make sure that you are comfortably happpy when you leave.

Lisa has been styling my hair for 13 years. I always receive a great hair cut . I look a lot better leaving than what I did when I entered the salon.

I have gone to Salone di Essenza several times now for highlights. Virginia, Curry,&Cary have given me fabulous looking hair each time. It's great I can get my eyebrows waxed there too! Everyone is so friendly \r&makes me feel welcomed.

My co-worker always has the most gorgeous hair&she told me to go to Lisa. I have done highlights in the past but over time I just become too blonde. I have brown hair&just wanted natural highlights. Lisa did what she called a ""sun-kissed"" look. It really brightened up my dull brown hair. I absolutely LOVE IT!! Thank you SO MUCH for making me gorgeous too!

Pros: Relaxing, professional atmosphere&booking online!

Nothing I received at this salon was worth the amount of money and time I spent 1) scheduling an appointment with the owner/receptionist, who needed to reschedule it twice; 2) waiting for a late hairdresser which was not the one I had booked my appointment with; and 3) leaving with a hairstyle which cost twice as much as it was worth and looked unprofessional.

There is an old joke about why the Queen of England always wear a hat. She has white girl hair! Well I would be wearing a hat all the time too if not for Virginia Bell's great haircuts. Fine, frizzy and mousy before and since starting with Virginia I get accolades weekly if not daily! (she does my color, too)

It is hard to find the combination of a hip stylist and a traditional barber. Salone di Essenza has that in Virginia Bell. She always knows how to get that fresh new look, and still get my hair perfectly faded around the sides and the back - just the way I like it. Virginia has been cutting my hair for over twenty years, and she'll be the one I visit the next time I need to look my best.

Virginia Bell does a top job on hair color and highlights. I go to Virginia to add sunlight and a natural healthy look to my hair! on a regular basis! She's terrific!

Hi Lisa!\r

Don't let Jen's crazy hair and tattoo's fool you - she's an expert who can give you any type of color and style, from funky to high-class. She's the only one I let cut and color my hair, and I've recently asked her to do the up-dos on the wedding party for my up-coming wedding. She's been my stylist for three years now, and I love her new berth at Salone di Essenza. It's a good location (with doughnuts and coffee right next door for those early-morning appointments) and the other stylists are great ladies as well.

I cannot say enough positive things in this review. Jennifer is a fabulous hair stylist and I wouldn't go to anyone else to get my hair done. She is an incredibly talented colourist and knowledgeable about her craft. She works very hard to make sure that you get the hairstyle that you want. She's helpful and friendly and fun to be around.\r
\r
Best in Austin, without a doubt.

I have been a client of Jennifer Hill's for a number of years, and she is the best stylist ever! She has always done an amazing job for me. She's an expert colorist and stylist. The salon is very friendly and has a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere as well. Can't be beat! I have never had a stylist who I trusted more or was more pleased with than Jennifer Hill!

I just had my hair styled by Curry and after 10 years in the Austin area --I finally got a great haircut.\r
She is a warm, caring individual and really listens to what you want. \r
I am really fussy about my haircuts, since I have really short hair and she exceeded my expectations.\r
If you are looking for a new stylist - just give Curry a call at the salon.\r
