Kylee was wonderful. She is very professional and friendly. She colored my hair exactly how I wanted it. I will definitely recommend her to my friends. The staff was great.

I found this salon on insider pages and then read the reviews on citysearch and gave it a try. How scary is it to go to a new salon? VERY. anyway, I really enjoyed this salon and the staff, these people understand customerservice and the haircut and the color I recieved were excellent. Not cheap for Austin, but as good as anything I found in LA without the pretense and WAY cheaper.

I have been going to KK for 3 years this October 2011. Sarah has been the best hairstylist and colorist I have ever had. The entire staff is wonderful, professional and educated on a continuous basis per Kris. The way that Keith and Kris run their business and salon is absolutely wonderful. They have the right mix of comfortable atmosphere and professionalism. I highly recommend them if you are searching for a new stylist. You will NOT be disappointed!

I can not believe how good a job Amber did with my eyebrows. I have blonde eyebrows and they tend to get messy but I have always been afraid to wax because most places take half my eyebrow off!\r
\r
Amber shaped them better than I have ever had them in my life and I am 22. I left feeling so pretty with a new shape. \r
\r
Honestly, I am one of those people that does not believe online reviews but let me tell you- Amber can be trusted with anyone. \r
\r
PROMISE!!!

I've been getting my eyebrows waxed since I was 17, so I've been to my share of salons. I'm now 35 and have been going to Amber for 3 years. I can honestly say she truly has a talent. She is able to find the perfect eyebrow shape for your face-shape, which, from what I've experienced, is not so easy. She now has a client for life, and I would recommend her to anyone!

So I found this salon online years ago after my stylist decided he wanted to quit the business. I have to say I absolutely love this place! I drive an hour to get there because the quality of hairstylists is above and beyond anything I've ever experienced anywhere else. Once I drove out for an appointment and my stylist at the time was sick and couldn't do my hair. The owner of the salon said the next appointment was on him. Sure enough, the next time I came in I went to pay for my service which was well over $250.00 and the awesome front desk girl Autumn said ""No Charge"". Okay girls... anyone knows that's about the best thing to hear ever! Now Deanne does me and my daughter's hair and we absolutely LOVE her! She recently gave me a whole new 'do for the New Year and I've received nothing but compliments. Even after I had a mini meltdown 'cause I couldn't style it, she squeezed me in and gave me another lesson so I could make it look as great as she did! Thanks Keith Kristofer's for providing such a great service and thanks Deanne for makin' me and my little one feel absolutely beautiful!

My husband and I have been going to this salon for awhile. We followed Jacque there for manicure services from another salon and started using Deanne for hair cuts and Amber for facials. We've been very happy and have continued to go there although we moved to San Antonio in '09. Oh, and I can't submit a review without saying how awesome Autumn and Sasha are, who handle appointments and cover the front desk!

Went in for a hair cut, nothing difficult, just some layers. This is one of the worst haircuts I have ever had. It can't be fixed, I have to grow it out. DO NOT GO TO KEITH KRISTOFER SALON.

In order for me to leave rating, I had to leave one star.

The first time I found this salon Larin cut and colored my hair and Amber found the perfect eyebrow somewhere on my face, but since I was in town on a business trip, I thought I was just lucky. When I returned to the Dallas area, I kept getting compliments. I mean LOTS of compliments. I went back to my former stylist as she was local. It took three months to grow out that cut and color, and I made my next appointment four hours away. I've continued to return (driving eight hours in a day...yes just for hair and eyebrows) for nearly a year. Larin and I discuss my hair. Really discuss my hair until we are both satisfied that we know what I want. And Amber and her amazing eyebrow ability? Magical.
I hesitate to let anyone know how great this salon is only because I need that appointment! You will receive COMPLIMENTS. Seriously.

I was in Austin for a meeting and wanted somewhere to get my hair colored and cut. Based on other reviews, I made an appointment at Keith Kristofer with Freddy. He was fantastic! Not only were my color and cut done just perfectly, but what impressed me the most was that since I was in town on business, and live in Wisconsin, it is likely that I will not be a repeat customer. I was worried ahead of time that whoever did my hair might not be quite as careful with me as they would be with a 'regular' but I needn't have worried! He was friendly, personable, and did the best job imaginable. I just wish that I didn't live so far away and that I could be a regular customer! Thank you!

I had been going to a very high end salon in Austin for about 9 years. It was time for a change as my hair was not looking its best (stylist just wasn't paying attention anymore, I suspect). So i found the reviews of KK online and tried it. I'm hooked now. Carrie did my color and Emily the haircut. The color is better than my previous color, more depth to the highlights. Carrie did a good call on that one! She was exceedingly professional and I am very pleased. Emily's haircut was one of the best I've ever had. She told me how to blow it dry on my own and her tips were right on! My hair actually looks good now, even when I style it. That's a first for me. Finally!!!! Great salon, check it out.

Pros: Professional and high quality

I've been in Austin almost a year now. When I first came here I used Citysearch to help find a place (Joie de Vie), however the experience was terrible. So I waited 7 months for another haircut and used citysearch again, this time going to Keith Kristofer. When I made the appt I told them what had happened, and that I needed a haircut before Christmas and that I was quite nervous based on my previous experience.

When I came in I had a few minutes to look at their retail line and was happy to see they carried Kerastase (I was out of my previous shampoo etc and had been wanting to try Kerastase). I met my stylist, Emily, and she told me that they schedule new clients for a longer appt. Also, the person who had booked my appt (incidentally the owner) had made a note that I was nervous. Emily put me at ease and took her time cutting and styling my hair - I never once felt rushed, which is VERY important to me. She worked with me, listened to what I wanted, and gave me exactly what I asked for! She recommended what products would be best for my long, dry hair and didn't push any products, which I loved.

I waited a little while to write the review just to see how my style held up after a few weeks. I love it just as much as I did the day I walked out of the salon. After using the Kerastase products (I used the moisturizing line and am excited to try their shine products next time), my hair feels as soft as in did in the salon and I can actually get my hair looking like Emily did at home! I am very happy that I found this salon and thanks Emily!!

I tried this salon after reading all the good reviews and I was very happy. I received highlights and a haircut, both of which were among the best I've had. Additionally, the atmosphere was great. I will definitely return.

I went here for a haircut about a month ago after reading all the good reviews. I was happy with where I already went to get my haircut, but I thought Id check Keith Kristofer out. The stylist was cool, thats about the only pro I can think of. I didnt get what I asked for. A part of my bangs was about two inches longer than the rest. Id compare it to the greatclips cuts I used to get when I was 12. I paid $45 for a $10 cut. Im sure guys have gotten great cuts here, I just wasnt so lucky.

I went in to have my hair colored a shade darker (medium brown) with subtle highlights for a friend's wedding party the next day. I asked for subtle highlights, and not anything drastic. The highlights were foiled first and left on the entire time. The results were truly disappointing as I looked like I had thick blocks of orange/yellow streaks through my hair, and even older with the highlights by my ears resembling white hair. The main color looked lighter than what I had walked in with because of the highlights. I was so embarrassed with the pictures, and to this day cannot look at them. I went back the following week to have it fixed, and the 2nd application of the darker color hid some of the hideous highlights but not for long. I had to go to another salon within the same month, and they did their best to correct the issue without damaging my hair. I will never go back to Keith Kristoffer's.

I have had my eyebrows waxed and tinted everywhere from Los Angeles to New York to Dallas to London, and trust me when I say no one in any of those cities can compare to Amber at Keith Kristofer Salon. She spends a great deal of time analyzing your skin, hair and the shape of your face before deciding what eyebrow color and shape is right for you. I'm a redhead, so mixing the perfect color combination for my skin and hair can be difficult, but Amber gets it right everytime. Unfortunately, I live in New York, which makes it impossible to see Amber each time I need a touch up. I was recently reminded how amazing she is when I went to have my eyebrows done at Warren Tricomi in the Plaza in New York, and it was a disaster. Even the most upscale salons can't compete with Amber.

If you live in Austin, definitely go see her!!

Another year has passed that I've been with Keith Kristofer Salon & Spa, so thought it was time to update my review.\r
\r
I love them all, still, and even more than I did a year ago. Even thought KK is an higher-end salon, everyone is so fun and down-to-earth. I always feel comfortable & welcome there. There's no snooty attitude, even though these folks are tops at what they do.\r
\r
Here are the individual props:\r
\r
Carrie, my colorist (that's right, she's mine, all mine!! But I'll share her...) is amazing. My color has never been so right on target before (and I've had really good colorists before). Carrie is such a sweetheart, I adore her and really enjoy the time I spend with her. I could hang out with Carrie all day. Did I mention how great her head massages are?\r
\r
Amber does my brows & lashes. I don't know how to describe the incredible before and after with Amber. I walk into the salon at the end of summer (I'm really bad about getting my locks & lashes done over summer) looking like a worn-out, used up, trampled on Mom and leave feeling pretty and younger. She truly is THE brow designer and, lucky us, she's in Austin.\r
\r
I had a facial with Amber at the beginning of summer and it was so luxurious and I was glowing for the next several weeks--my skin was radiant!\r
\r
Warning about Amber, though, you'll laugh your tush off with her--she's so funny!\r
\r
Larin gives the best Victoria Secret haircuts--it's the highest compliment I can give a hair cut. I wake up every morning with beautiful hair and hardly ever have to do anything to it. I can even go months between cuts (which I try not to do, just for healthy hair), and the cut looks great. Seriously, that is the true test of a great haircut. Larin's very fun to talk with--she's bubbly & cute.\r
\r
I met Adrian for the first time today, for a conditioning treatment, shampoo, blow-dry & style. Love her! She is so easy to talk with, laid-back and interesting. The hairstyle turned out so silky & sexy--great job!\r
\r
Jacqueline is a doll! I don't see her nearly enough, but she always makes me laugh and does a phenomenal job on my hands & feet. She's great at helping me find good colors to go with my skin tone, too.\r
\r
Autumn, Jesse & Maddie always start my day right, when I walk in the door.\r
Maddie is about the cutest thing I've ever seen, she is so pretty!\r
Jesse's beautiful eyes I could stare into for hours, well, when he's not making me laugh. Riot!!\r
And darling Autumn, where to begin? She has the sweetest, purest heart--I just love her! I always love to see what her latest look will be--she's such a beauty and does such fun things with her hair.\r
\r
KK is the best salon I've ever gone to, not just in services, but also in people. I've been with them for two years and plan to stay with them forever.\r

Salon only knows how to do banana peel blond. Eyebrow expert didn't really provide any advice with free consultation. Note to salon... there is golden blond, carmel etc...

This was my first time at this salon. I was comfortable there, everyone is very nice, and the salon is beautiful.

Here is the really, really important stuff:
I went to Kris, my hair was a mess, it was the wrong color and I had quite a bit of growth. So I needed her to correct the color, and blend it into my natural mostly white with brown hair outgrowth. What surprised me is that she knows what color is best for my skin tone, she actually studied that! In the past years, I have asked stylists at other salons what color would be best for my skin tone, and none of them knew, they just said pick a color you like.

Kris did a perfect job, my hair looks fabulous! It looks 100% better, Kris performed magic, I really didn't think it could turn out this well. It makes my skin look better and I think I even look a little younger:) Thank you Kris!

Also, her assistant, Jessica? I think that's her name, I am so sorry, I can remember for sure. But her assistant is a doll, and I can honestly say I have never had such a relaxing shampoo. I know this sounds silly, but even when she dried my hair with the towel, it was relaxing! I want to go back in between hair color appointments just for her to wash and style my hair!

They really care about how you look at this salon, they listen, and treat you like you matter.

I have Asian hair, and this causes me lot of problems when it comes to haircuts. I've gone to lots of cheap places where they do a terrible job, barber shops that do an okay job but not good enough for me to come back, as well as some nice salons here in Austin that cater to women, NOT men. Keith Kristofer Salon is the best place I've EVER been to. Most of my life when I get a haircut, I'm not completely satisfied. This is the FIRST time I left with smile on my face. I really had a good experience. My stylist was Larin. She listened to what I was looking for and spent a lot of time with me. My haircut was about 1.5 hours because she took her time to provide me with a quality cut as well as to understand the frustations I've had with my hair. She washed my hair at the beginning AND the end so I didn't have to rush home to take a shower. Another great thing is that she helped me to better understand the way my hair grows so that I can style it in a way that makes me look my best - how many stylists really do this? She told me to wash my hair every couple of days so I wouldn't dry out my scalp. And she made me a shopping list of products that best suit my hair. Larin has made a lifetime customer and I look forward to my next appointment.

I have Asian hair, and this causes me lot of problems when it comes to haircuts. I've gone to lots of cheap places where they do a terrible job, barber shops that do an okay job but not good enough for me to come back, as well as some nice salons here in Austin that cater to women, NOT men. Keith Kristofer Salon is the best place I've EVER been to. Most of my life when I get a haircut, I'm not completely satisfied. This is the FIRST time I left with smile on my face. I really had a good experience. My stylist was Larin. She listened to what I was looking for and spent a lot of time with me. My haircut was about 1.5 hours because she took her time to provide me with a quality cut as well as to understand the frustations I've had with my hair.

Pros: Stylists listen to what you want and nice atmosphere

Keith Kristofer saved my life! Okay, okay, that's an exageration, but I feel like the wonderful ladies at Keith Kristofer did! My husband is currently deployed and will be arriving home to San Antonio this week. In an attempt to spruce up before his homecoming I decided to have my hair highlighted at a very expensive salon in San Antonio. In short, they destroyed my hair. I cried for three days and on the third night I emailed Keith Kristofer salon at around 11 pm. I received a response from Keith and Kris, the owners, at 12:30 am the same night. If that isn't customer service I don't know what is!?! The salon worked me in only 2 days later with Kris styling my hair. From the moment I arrived at the salon to the moment I left everyone at Keith Kristofer was friendly, welcoming and professional. Kris thoroughly discussed with me what I wanted to do, what had actually gone wrong at the other salon, and what kind of outcome I could expect. Kris, Kris' assistant and Jessica took wonderful care of me. I had three great women styling my hair and checking on my progress. Kris did not disappoint. My hair is beautiful! It is exactly what I was looking for! I actually liked my hair even more the second day than I did walking out of the salon! How amazing is that? I will not go anywhere else! I will not let anyone else touch my hair! I am a Keith Kristofer client for life, and I cannot wait for my husband to see it!

I have been going to this salon for over a year and a half now and I think it is the best salon in Austin! Deanne is someone I recommend whole-heartedly! She is easy to communicate with and she really listens to what you want. Everyone at the salon from Autumn at the front to the owners are very friendly and they all seem to strive to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy in their salon.
Another key note on this salon are the products they use. If you are looking for true customer service and high quality hair styling this is the place to be!

I have been living in the Austin area for 4 years now and have never been able to find a salon that I liked. I am extremely picky and i don't just trust anyone with my hair. I would drive to Houston (my hometown) 3 hours away just to get my haircut by the same person i went to since high school. I have had several bad experiences trying to find a great place in Austin. I was recently introdcued to the Keith Krisopher Salon and I will never go anywhere else. Shannon did an amazing job cutting and coloring my hair!!!

I have had ""bad hair"" for what seems like forever. I looked on Citysearch and based on the ratings and responses from those who were less than happy with the services (says a lot about customer service), I emailed the salon with my concerns and the fact that I have been unable to find someone to fix my ""bad hair"". I received a quick response from Keith who recommended that I come in for a complimentary consultation with Kris, which I did. She listened to me, offered suggestions and we scheduled an appointment. She gave me color and a cut that I love and can work with. I am a work in progress but think I have found my answer. The salon is welcoming, friendly and Kris could not have been nicer. Thanks to everyone!

This is agreat salon. I've been around the proverbial ""salon block"" and I can honestly say this may be the best one yet. Chris, who I saw, REALLY knows her stuff. She is one of the owners I think and seems to work with some of the other stylists while she's working on her own customers, but this wasn't a problem for me. I want someone that knows what they are doing. I had a mess when I went in and she did a very exacting consultation and it was obvious from the start that she is a pro. The salon is clean and artsy and the front desk girls are professional and sweet. (and cute !) These people care about your experience, it's obvious. I intend to try other services at this salon.

Keith Kristofer Salon is a awesome salon for cutting and coloring hair. I live in Houston but I found this salon when I was working in Austin a lot. Now, I drive from Houston to Austin just to have my hair highlighted and cut here. I've tried so many salons in Houston and even Europe when I lived there and could never find anyone who could turn my dark brown hair to light blonde exactly the way I wanted it to look. They are priced as much as other high end salons but my stylist Sara really knows what she's doing and she has a great personality too. At my first appointment with Sara, she spent a lot of time talking with me to find out exactly wanted with my color and cut and she explained to me what she would do to achieve the look I wanted. Sara listened to my trials and tribulations with my hair and came up with a solution that's worked perfectly for my hair for the past 2 years. Her coloring knowledge is exceptional. She understands that everyone's hair is unique and coloring one way may not work the same way for another person's hair. She also understands that the number one priority for a customer being there is doing their hair, not chit chatting or gossiping like other stylists I've seen at other salons in the past. Sara pays incredible detail to the task of doing my hair, more than any other stylist I've been to, and it impresses me at every appointment I have with her. She hasn't slacked off after time, which a lot of stylist do when you become a regular customer (I hate that). The salon also uses high end haircare products like Kerastase, Shiseido, and Aquage. I use Kerastase at home so it's important for me that the salon I go to use it too (just my personal preference). I'm not sure how I'll find a stylist and salon like this one if I ever moved away from Texas again!

I tried Keith Kristofer and Kris specifically after reading the great reviews on citysearch. So I feel like I have an obligation to contribute to the reviews since they helped me. I'd had a horrible color experience and went to kris at Keith Kristofer for a color correction. She was meticulous, interested, thorough, careful, collaborative, all-around a great person to see for color correction. However, when I went back for a second hair color I didn't think her work was nearly as detail oriented as the first time; the highlights weren't as evenly applied and the color choice wasn't as flattering to my skin. Also, she had an assistant assessing when my color was finished and she didn't check it herself. I was a little disappointed with the second experience and felt like my color results were only ""ok"" and not as vibrant as I was expecting, which I told her. She asked me to please call her if I wasn't happy, and I really believe she stands behind her work. I'm just trying to decide if I'll return or not. If you need a color correction I highly recommend Kris. I am just trying to decide if it's the right fit for a long-term relationship. :) I found the cut to be good, though not my favorite cut I've ever had. The staff are all very nice and the salon is very pretty and relaxing.

I tried this salon at the end of last week and I was very pleased I saw Chris for color. This is a very friendly place with a terrific vibe and they are professional. Since checking out city search and coming back to do this review, I noticed the ""terrible"" review down below. Not sure who she saw, but I can't image anyone at this salon being ""stuck up"". Certainly not anyone I met. I can recommend Keith Kristopher Salon. I will be going to back.

Cons: Hard to get in on short notice

I have repented of my sins, returned to Keith Kristofer Salon and look fantastic. \r
\r
My first trip to Keith Kristofer resulted in the best haircut I'd ever had. I have very fine hair and had always left it way too long which made it shapeless and scraggly. I would let each new stylist cut more each time because I started to see how much better it looked with some shape to it but I never found the right person to make me feel WOW. Then Sarah came along and gave me a fantastic bob with all the soft layering I needed to add some oomph to my limp hair. No choppy texturing. It was PERFECT. \r
\r
Fast forward to the next appointment and I was ready for cut and color. Now I'm a thrifty girl and I have to admit I had sticker shock when I got to the counter to settle up because of the cut + 2 process color?. but I did not have buyer's remorse. The color lasted forever! \r
\r
For what ever reason I turned into a cheapskate and thought I could get a good cut at some of the other places in Austin. The last place I went I ended up with a 90s mom hair cut. No real nice shape to it and choppy texturing. \r
\r
I realized I'd rather walk away a tiny bit lighter in the pockets than buyer's remorse so I went back to Keith Kristofer and Sarah Saenz (remember that name) fixed me again. I told her that I wanted to let my hair grow back out to just below my shoulders but I couldn't live with the funky shape I had right now. She agreed and gave me a sexay cut and said to come back in 10 weeks for the next session. And I can tell you after 9.5 weeks I'll still look great and that?s worth the $60.00.

I recently went to this Salon thinking it would be a good idea because my other Salon close to the area moved locations. I was so shocked and disappointed after going here. I spent a over $200 and the result was horrible!!!!! I will never go back here, it was the WORST HAIRDO of my life!!!! Not to mention the staff is very stuck up!

I just moved to Austin and had been driving back to Houston to get my hair done once a month. Well, a friend of mine just told me about Keith Kristopher Salon, so I wanted to try it out. Wonderful! I went to Herve and he did a fantastic job. I had bright blond hair and wanted to go darker, and Herve took the time to explain everything to me and told me exactly what he would do and how it would turn out. He talked me through every step, was enjoyable to talk to, and did a fabulous job on my color. I absolutely love my hair and have gotten so many compliments on it. I love the written estimate. While the haircut was a little on the pricey side, Herve gave me the best haircut I've ever had. I enjoyed every minute of my trip to the salon and will definitely recommend it to everyone.

A newcomer to Austin, I needed a rescue salon that would ""fix"" a bad color job I had gotten at another local salon & was so glad to have found Carrie Cowan at Keith Kristofer's salon. Carrie, a color correction expert, did an awesome job getting my color back to the way I wanted it. She is truly a color genius. She was so friendly & I left feeling so uplifted by such a positive experience that I will definitely be back. It's one of those places you can just tell the employees enjoy working at & they pass those positive vibes onto the customers. Everyone I met was so welcoming & sincerely wanting to help.

I have traveled many places and lived everywhere. I have been using the same place in Denver for 20 years, I have tried to change many times but always ended up flying back to Denver. A little over a year ago I swore I would never risk it again and have been traveling to Denver every 6 weeks no matter where I was. I read about this salon on City Search and decided to step up. Amber was wonderful! I had the best facial I have had in a long time. From the time I walked in the front door, I was treated very well. I am already planning my next facial. Next was hair and Teryn was all over it!! I was worried for about the first 3 seconds and that was it. The last time I tried someone new, they turned my hair pink, no kidding. That was why I was a little worried. When Teryn started talking and shook my hand, I knew that it was going to be fine. After the cut and color, it was more than fine. It was great!!!! I'm sold. Thank you so much for such a great experience from start to finish. My next hair trip will be with Teryn in 6 weeks!!!

Have you ever walked into a salon with a designer handbag, dressed business professional, paid like 250 bucks for a haircut and color and STILL felt like everyone at the salon was looking down their nose at you? Well you won't find that at Keith Kristopher. What you will find is excellent staff, wonderful atmosphere and fantastic salon services.\r
\r
Keith Kristopher is exactly the type of salon I want: \r
-contemporary, comfortable surroundings without being posh and snooty\r
-down to earth, talented stylists\r
-clean and comfortable nail care\r
-to feel and look great for a great price\r
-easy appointment scheduling\r
-open communication about fees, what I want, and what's best for my nails/hair, etc. \r
\r
I've had my new 'do for 2 days and I got stopped on the street yesterday by a total stranger who raved about my hair. She couldn't believe the color wasn't natural and she loved the cut. (She was obviously a professional, and after chatting a bit she said, ""I'm so sorry - can I touch your hair? It looks so healthy, I can't believe it is colored!"" I would have passed along the business card Teryn gave me, but I'd already passed it on to one of my other new hair fans. (Don't worry, we got the number into her phone!)\r
\r
I can't leave out Jacqueline (I hope I'm not butchering her name). I've gotten a manicure and pedicure from Jacqueline. It was perfect! I play soccer several times a week and I do lots of filing so my hands and feet need serious TLC. She did an excellent job and the stations were clean, comfy and cute. I felt like I was chatting with a girlfriend I'd known for years! \r
\r
If you want an amazing experience, make an appointment now! Don't pay too much for a haircut or other service you aren't in love with -- call Keith Kristofer and make an appointment now!

I always get a great cut from Sara. She also makes good conversation, is very professional, and polite. The staff a Keith Kristofer are all friendly, I feel like I'm talking to a friend when they call about appointment scheduling, or for any reason. I've recommended a friend to Sara and he was very happy with the cut. \r
\r
I've had 120 dollar hair cuts that weren't half as good as a cut from Sara, and it will cost you less than a third of that (for a basic men's cut). \r
\r
I've never had a negative experience at Keith Kristofer, and I'm sure you won't either. Make sure you go, and ask for Sara!\r
\r
Also, I forgot to mention. I've had my eyebrows waxed there a few times and that too is impeccable.

I saw Teryn (I'm not sure of the spelling) and she was awesome! She was super sweet and funny and gave me one the best cuts of my life. She took the time to work with my hair texture and talk with me about exactly what I wanted. I went from fairly long hair to pretty short and I love it! Everyone at the salon was friendly and said hi on their way by my chair. I had a really great experience overall here and would definitely recommend going to Keith Kristofer Salon and Spa, that is of course unless you don't like feeling like a movie star!

Pros: Friendly Staff, clean fun enviornment, safe feeling

Cons: NONE!

My young teen son has thick, curly hair. He let it grow out passed his shoulders, and we loved the look, but he needed to cut it to participate in athletics. Concerned that he would have a fuzzy ""fro"" we sought someone with experience cutting and styling male, curly hair. we found that person in Mycah at Keith Kristofer Salon. She took her time and gave an exquisite cut, and ensured that both my son and I were completely happy with her work. \r
\r
The rest of the staff were equally professional and attentive. Overall a great experience. We will definitely return!

A family member recommended this salon to me and I'm so glad she did. Herve cut my hair and Sunny did my highlights and I can't rave enough about how good my hair looks. You know you got a great cut when you can let it dry naturally and it still looks gorgeous. I'm a low-maintenance person and rarely have the time to blowout my hair. I told Herve I needed a cut that would look good even when I let it dry naturally and he understood right away. This morning I washed it, put a little mousse in it and was out the door and my hair looks fabulous and has tons of volume like Victoria Secret hair! This is the best hair cut I have ever had and I cannot recommend him enough. I also got highlights and they turned out beautifully. Sunny is a delight to talk to and she knows what she's doing. After a long consultation to find out exactly what I wanted she went straight to work. She did 2 shades of caramel - a light and a dark - which look perfect with my dark brown hair. The highlights are thin and subtle and the over-all effect is natural but not at all boring. Thank you Herve and Sunny!!

Pros: Easy to find, easy parking, wonderful non- pretentious staff and a hip atmosphere

Growing up in Austin I have tried different facials all over town and this is by far the best facial in Austin . Amber is so friendly and nice and really goes out of her way to make you comfortable. Not only is the room relaxing, but the Sonya Dakar products really work. My skin is always smooth and glowing after I get a facial and looks amazing. (my skin is really sensitive so it is great to find someone who really understands my skin type) The facial is worth every cent and I even purchased some of the products to use at home. Amber went over which ones would work best for my skin and I have really seen a difference. (the face washes and scrubs are my favorite) Amber waxes my eyebrows too and they always look wonderful. I could rave about this place forever and it is great to find a salon with great people and services. I also get my hair done here and would never go anywhere else. AND I have to say that Marisa at the front is so accommodating and really helps out anyway she can. I highly recommend getting a facial/waxing with Amber (plus every other service) --you will not regret it!

I am fairly new to Austin and this is the second salon I have tried. I was impressed by the people and the place. They are very nice and they certainly seem to know what they are doing. Any time I go to a ""luxury"" salon I worry that it will be arrogant and cold, but this salon is far from it. One thing they did that was different ffrom what I've experienced is the stylist quoted my price for color and hair cut during the consultation BEFORE they started on my hair. I havent seen that before but I liked it. No nasty surprises at the end. They seem professional in the way they go about things and it was a pleasant experience all the way around. I received hi-lites and lo-lites and a hair cut and I am happy with the results. Looking forward to trying some of their other services. I recommend.

Updated on Sep 19: Original review now truncated. The owners contacted me after my initial visit and invited me back to see a different stylist. We agreed my first experience was subpar via a series of professional and polite emails. I'm the first to admit everyone has a bad day. So I saw Kris today and she was excellent. She took the time to really understand my hair, what I wanted. She asked lots of questions to draw out how I like my hair. I appreciated that. Her attention to detail was exactly what I desire from a superior stylist. The staff and owners have been courteous, professional , and service oriented all along. Short story: First visit was bad luck. It happens in life. And this place endeavoured to make it right. Original review: I was shampood by another stylist who said my stylist was a little behind. Not a good sign. I expected my stylist to introduce himself and examine my hair before cutting it. After the shampoo I sat at her station to wait. After 15 minutes with wet head, my stylist left the bleaching going on in his chair. He went to work and 9 minutes later was finished, including his leaving to check on his bleaching. Men's haircuts are pretty straight forward. He onlymade a couple of texturing strokes with a razor but that was it for detail. To be fair, he gave a decent cut. Combine the wet head wait, the quick cut at a different station, and the lack of attention after completing my hair and this combines for a 3 star rating. Sure, it was a much better cut that I would get at a walk -in place. But I will be looking for someone and someplace where I receive the level of attention my appointment and my fee deserves. In sum: Polite, friendly, nice space. But men-- be aware that you *may* be a second class citizen here based on my experience. I wanted to like the place. And my cut was decent, as I said. The guy was talented and I wished I would have gotten a little more attention. Maybe you will have better luck than I did.

I got a haircut from Sarah Saenz and it was great! She was recommended to me by a friend whose hair I like, so I knew I was probably going to get a good haircut. She didn't cut my hair too short, and made it look healthy again. I'll probably be getting haircuts from her from now on. The thing I liked best, actually, was that I was thinking about getting a deep conditioning treatment, and she honestly told me that it would probably be more beneficial for me to regularly do one myself at home. Then she pointed out some hair products that were all half off! I really don't like being taken advantage of or being ripped off, so I appreciated her candor and helping me get a good deal.

One word - Professional. I have been once, and I will be back. I am very happy with my hair and eyebrows and I was impressed with the way I was treated. A fun, gorgeous place. This place is a safe bet if you frighten easily like me when it comes to choosing a new salon.

Pros: It was very easy to park and easy to get to

Cons: None that I can think of

I visited this salon about two weeks ago and found it very nice. Nice people,nice decor, nice everything. The work they did on my hair was gorgeous. I had highlites and a hair cut. Everyone I met there was professional and seemed quite knowledgeable. I will be back. I can wholeheartedly recommend it.

I'd been going to this salon for a long time for manicures and pedicures which are professionally done in a lovely, immaculate atmosphere. Everyone at this salon was so nice and helpful and the surroundings are so serene and pretty, that I decieded to try cut and color appointment with their top stylist. The service was very professional with an initial consultation after which I felt that my wants and needs were listened to. Not! The highlight color wasn't remotely what I wanted, highlights where chunky not subtle, and because the product hadn't been left on long enough to lift my hair beyond an orangey yellow, I was subjected to another unwanted (but charged for) service of a toner/glaze. The color never improved. The cut was beyond awful. Although this salon guarantees their work I was afraid that a return would just make things worse. So, spending another chunk of change, I retreated to my former stylist (who was closing shop-- that's why I tried Kristofer), for repair. Still looking for the perfect stylist in this town. Seems hopeless.

Cons: Very Erratic Styling and Color services

This salon is a class act. you will get excellent service here, your hair will look fablous and they always think about the integrity of your hair. The thing that sets them apart from most other salons, is they REALLY CARE. They genuinly want to make you happy and want you to walk out of there feeling confident. The prices may be higher , but you're getting guranteed services in a impeccably clean luxurious salon. I am a client here, and I always feel welcomed and most importantly My hair always looks great.

I moved from North East Texas in 2005. I tried different salons, paid high prices, went to the ""best"" so called colorist in Austin and surrounding areas. Finally I called my salon in Tyler and she recommended finding a salon that uses Keratase. So we looked online and booked with Sarah. She did a fantastic job on my daughter's hair, so I booked an appointment with her. She did a great job cutting and coloring my hair. I highly recommend this Sarah at this salon.
