Austin >Estilo Valdez
High Praise for Estilo Valdez. When I first came to this salon, my hair was very short and gray, with frizzy, unruly curls. I had struggled with it for years and longed for a change. Haley suggested BKT treatments, and the results have been transformative. With Haley's expert cuts and BKT, I now have a smooth, chin-length bob, and for the first time in my life, I actually feel good about my hair. Plus, I get compliments! I recommend Haley highly. Recently, Jacqueline has been doing my BKT treatments, and she also does a wonderful job. The salon has a warm, lovely feeling, and the staff is great. I give them five well-deserved stars.
My absolute favorite!. I'm originally from Houston, and I have been going to the same stylist for cuts and highlights since middle school. When I moved up to Austin for school, I tried a few different salons, but would always save my highlights for when I went home for the holidays because no one was really worth going back to. My senior year of college I was referred to Melinda and I am so glad I took my friend's advice. Melinda is fabulous at absolutely everything. My highlights never lasted this long with any other stylist. It's a shame I didn't find her until the end of my time in Austin!
Haley & Jacqueline are AMAZING. I first found out about this salon from my mom. She was the previous owners (Ron) theater teacher in high school. The first time I went everyone was SO friendly and made me feel welcome. Haley has done my high lights for almost a year now and she does it PERFECT every time. Jacqueline cuts & styles my hair and she is equally amazing. I highly recommend either of these girls. This salon is very Austin, always playing great music. I will NEVER go anywhere else.
ahhmazing hair salon. Really love this salon. I've been in Austin for a long time and have tried many other salons, but Estilo Valdez has just the right combination of chic and casual. It's sooo Austin. The stylists are friendly, knowledgable and very talented. They make sure you feel comfortable. They listen to what you want, or if you don't know, they make suggestions. And they know what they are talking about. The decor is fun, too. They always have interesting art work on the walls, and if you are looking for Redken products, they have everything. I highly recommend this place.
Thanks so much for coming into our salon and giving us this great review. At Estilo Valdez, we pride ourselves on being where style and fashion meet art! And all the stylists are warm and friendly too! We're glad you had a great experience and were willing to share it with others! See you back in the salon soon, Carmen, Owner, Estilo Valdez
The best Redken salon - Angela is amazing!.
Every single visit to Estilo Valdez has been excellent.
I started going to Estilo Valdez a few years ago just for color. I'm a long time Redken fan so whenever I move to a new city or area I look up a salon that uses Redken. There were several salons in Austin that I did not revisit before finding EV...when I happened into Estilo and sat down in Angela's chair I had finally found my permanent salon and stylist! The decor is great, the music is AWESOME (I secretly think they steal my ipod when I'm in) and Angela always listens to my requests, clarifies to make sure we're on the same page and then makes it look fabulous EVERY time - and I've gone from all blonde to dark red/brown! Since finding Angela I have recommended her to all of my friends and family and they have also been very happy with her skills and fun personality.
Melinda is awesome!. It has been about 5 months since I
Go see Jacqueline!.
I have a massive, beast-like mane of hair. It's long, thick, and curly/wavy. I've struggled for years to find stylists that can deal with my hair. Most of them honestly had no idea what to do, and it showed. Jacqueline is the first stylist that I feel 100% confident with. Every time I go in I come out looking even better than the last time.
She's also super friendly and really easy to talk to. The salon itself has a really nice laid back vibe. I hate walking into a salon where the stylists seem too pretentious. All the girls at Estilo Valdez seem really down to Earth and it's a fun, relaxing environment to be in.
I would HIGHLY recommend Jacqueline to anyone looking for the perfect cut/color. I've just moved out of Austin but I am seriously coming back to get my hair done by her - it's worth it!
We are so glad you found us! Jacqueline is great at working with curly hair, I'm glad she was able to make you satisfied! And thank you soooooo much for commenting on the other stylists as well. At Estilo we are just one big happy family, and I'm glad that you were able to pick up on that vibe during your visit.
See you in the Salon Soon! All our Love, Carmen, Owner
Jacqueline @ Estilo Valdez is Awesome!.
I'm one that likes to change up my hair style and color quite often, and Jacqueline has given me great results each time! She's given me some fantastic cuts, which is sometimes difficult with my extremely fine/straight hair, and always mixes a rich, beautiful color that really emphasizes the cut. She's definitely got a knack for knowing how to mix the perfect color for your skin-tone.
I was a newbie to highlights, so understandably nervous when I first sat down to get them, but Jacqueline did a great job explaining the process, making me feel at ease, and assured me that with the perfect combo of highlights and lowlights, the overall effect would nicely frame my face--and man was she right! I'm now a complete convert to highlights!
Jacqueline is also one of those stylists that you're comfortable talking to--she asks questions because she cares, not because she has to. And when recommending products you know that she'll only recommend the things she uses herself, which makes you feel like you're getting advice from a friend, rather than a salesperson.
I love getting my hair done with Jacqueline! Definitely go see her!
Danielle, We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience with Jacqueline. She is certainly very talented and always leaves her guests feeling great and looking their best. All our stylists are trained in the using the finest Redken products, and understand how important it is for each guest to be well educated about how to maintain their look. We are so glad that Jacqueline helped you feel at ease and comfortable. Hope to see you back in the salon soon, Carmen, Owner, Estilo Valdez
Autry did an awesome job!!!. Autry is great with my curly hair! I have naturally frizzy, bushy, curly guy's hair and she gave the me the best look and style of any stylist I have had previously. Thanks Autry!!
As the latest edition to the Estilo Valdez family, Autry Parsons continues to amaze and please us with her stylish cuts and expert coloring. I am so, so happy that you were pleased as well. As Austin's Curly Cut Specialists, Estilo Valdez aims to "Wow" our beloved Curlies... We are glad you weren't disappointed. All our love, Carmen, Owner, Estio Valdez Salon
Angela is the best curly cut stylist ever!. Angela did a really good job on my hair cut! Thank you so much! I have straight hair in front and curly hair in back, and have never had any cut that was easy to maintain. Well, last night I went in the pool, got out washed my hair, and then went straight to sleep (with wet hair) I woke up this morning, and my hair still looks great! What a fantastic hair cut! Thank you Angela!
I can personally attest to this great review and fantastic haircut! The review is from my 8 year old daughter, and I am so, so, so, happy I won't have to flat iron her hair everyday anymore. Her hair is just perfect, for the first time in her life. So, thank you Angela, for the best cut of her life! I really appreciate it. All my love, Carmen, Owner, Estilo Valdez Salon
