Wish it was less expensive so I could go more often....
When I had my appointment at Pink I felt like I had finally found the right hair salon. Tisa took her time with my appointment and gave me great info on how to deal with my hair. She also talked with me about how to get my hair where I want it. She suggested treatments and products without being pushy, and, she was funny and chatty without making me feel pressured to make awkward small talk!
All of the other staff I encountered were also very sweet and down to earth- no pretentious nonsense, no fake friendliness. Oh, and cool outsider art all over the place! Plenty to look at while you're getting your hair cut.
To me the only negative aspect of Pink is the price- high. BUT, I did get a long and thorough appointment for my money, and, I don't get my hair cut often, so that is something to consider. Oh, and the building really could use some new interior paint... I'm all for boho South Austin, but a few touch-ups would enhance the place.
Trust. I love this salon! I have been twice, and will be back. Amanda is my stylist, and I love her personality. I trust her with my hair, which is hard for me to do with just anyone. The salon has an upbeat vibe with soco elements that make it truly unique!
Cute salon, great brow and bikini wax. This is a really cute little salon! I've been pretty much everywhere in town for waxing, but I decided to try out Pink's waxing services after a friend recommended them. I had a bikini wax and brow wax there last week and am so happy! The bikini wax was really quick, precise and mostly ouchless, but the main thing that made me so happy is my new eyebrows. My brows looked okay before but Tricia increased the arch slightly by waxing slightly higher on the underside and now they look amazing! A couple people have said I look energized and happier and I certainly feel smokin' now!! As far as the cost, with waxing I think you get what you pay for. This is a higher quality salon and they use high quality wax and as a person who has gotten cheap wax elsewhere I know good wax and a good waxer are well worth the money. The prices are very reasonable for the high quality! I probably won't go to anyone else now cause I don't want them to mess up my perfect new eyebrows!
Trisha @ Pink is the Best Esthetician in Austin!.
I'm about to reveal one of the best beauty secrets in town. Her name is Trisha. She is the esthetician at Pink Salon & Gallery. Her facials are amazing!! I have fair skin which has always been very sensitive to products. Since I've reached my 30's, I all of a sudden started having mini break outs. This is especially disturbing since I made it through my teens and twenties with clear - blemish free skin. I began spending a fortune on products to try and remedy my new problem. Nature continued to lash out on my face. Finally, I made an appointment with Trisha who worked some sort of crazy magic- on skin. She combines micro-derm, peels and potions in a customized facial especially geared to your particular needs. She goes over and beyond- and even sends you home with samples and her very own hand-mixed scrubs and beauty tips for the next week follow-up. My skin looked AMAZING!! Since I've been going to Trisha, I have people ask me all the time how I look so much younger than I am. I think I can give quite a bit of credit to the magical facials at Pink. Trisha is one of those people who has truly found her calling!
Don't get bikini/brazilian waxes ever!. Absolutely the worst Brazilian wax of my life and over-priced. I will never never never go back!!!
Great hair salon!.
Pink has an amazing atmosphere and does a fabulous job. Tisa is my stylist and she is incredible--full of creative ideas and very helpful for styling suggestions! I would recommend this salon to anyone who is looking for something new and fun!
I love the fact that you meet with your stylist personally to discuss how you feel about your current style and what options you'd like to consider for that particular appointment.
My only warning is to be careful with price. You wont leave with a haircut for less than $75; I was shocked when I got a color glaze and left with a $201.00 bill!
Amanda Rocks!!. PINK is Fabulous! AMANDA is the BEST!! By far the best salon experience I have had. The girls are super cute, hip and friendly. Amanda has an awesome personality and is super talented, she always makes me laugh and makes me feel pretty! LOVE her!!
So sad that I'm moving away from Lilli at Pink!.
Pink Salon, Lilli as my stylist and ALL of the FABULOUS staff will be greatly missed as I leave Austin for the San Francisco bay area. Lilly has been doing my hair for the past two and a half years since I had moved to Austin from San Diego where I had been CONVINCED that no one could do my very think, difficult to manage, and not to mention I was growing out...hair like "my girl" in San Diego. WELL I WAS WRONG! Lilli is patient, friendly (in fact, she's become a dear friend) and most of all TALENTED. Whether it's been my color (blonde, blonde and blonder from the orignal shade of brownish-red when I got here and the first time she did it) or the cut (honestly, I've not had a major cut since I'm growing it out, but Lilli LISTENS and doesnt do anything you dont want her to although her recommendations are always correct.) I have been so happy and want to cry when I think that Lilli will no longer be doing my hair on a regular basis. I'm seriously considering flying out every 6-8 weeks!(ok, ok, I will have to look for someone else, I know.)
So in short...best experience in Austin for hair and not only is Lilli great, but every one i have been honored enough to make friends with at Pink is awesome.
Brandi is practicly my mother.... Brandi is our family friend her daught babysat us for along time. Anyways pink is an amazing place to get your hair done. My hair is always amazing and all my friends are super in love with it. She cut my bangs and now every girl at my school has them we call them "brandi bangs" and soon im going to get a straight perm from her. Im super excited. I TOTALY RECOMMEND HER GO TO BRANDI AND PINK THEY ARE AMAZING!!!
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!!.
Aside from being absolutely adorable and as personable as can be, Trisha gave me the best facial of my life. From just one look at my skin, she was able to tell me exactly what needed to be done... EXFOLIATE and get rid of those pesky blackheads!! I have been to aestheticians all over this town and they have NEVER been able to get rid of the blackheads on my nose. Girls with oily skin... you know what i'm talking about!! But its been 3 weeks since my facial and my skin still looks like porcelain which is a first for me. Also, I must agree with one of the other reviews in that I came really close to falling asleep. I'm not sure how she does it, but she was actually massaging my back during the facial. All in all, I am more than pleased with my facial and I am actually going to ask for the 2-HR facial for my birthday! (insert hint to boyfriend here!)
Thank you Trisha, you're amazing and you'll definitely be seeing me again!!
