Consistently the best – I have been going to J. Brandon's since I moved to Austin 3 years ago, my husband & I both go and agree that the quality, price and overall experience is amazing. Angelica and her team work hard to make sure each customer is satisfied, communication is key and all of the ladies working there communicate well with the customers. The 'bad review' for J. Brandon's sounds like a fluke - I can't imagine anything like that happening!
I have had hair to my shoulders and now I have almost a pixie cut, all done by Angelica and the other ladies and I could not be happier each time I go! And color - she's great at helping me (and other customers too that I've seen) choose the right color & cut to make sure you're happy. She reviews your current style, hair type, what you prefer (do you take a short or long time doing your hair), she teaches you how to style it when she's done so you can repeat it the next day!
I could not be happier with J. Brandon's, I've had Karen cut & color my hair, Liz, Angelica and probably others too - 3 years is a long time to remember 'who cut your hair'!
Pricing is great too; you won't spend a fortune to look like a million bucks!
The best salon in southwest Austin – I have been getting my hair colored and styled at JBRANDONS since they opended over 5 years ago. Its hard to find a salon where you find everything about it to be top-rated. I have been to many salons over the years and eventually ended up looking for a new one to try because the stylist I was going to quit being creative or the atmosphere in the salon became uncomfortable, the prices started going up because the salon was becoming more popular... This has not been the situation with JBRANDONS...Anjelica Vargas, the owner and the stylist I have had the pleasure of getting to know these past five years puts customer service first. She wants every customer who comes to her salon to be 100% safisfied with the service they have received and does whatever it takes to make that happen. I also know that whenever Anjelica has not been available any one of her stylist are able to step in and do a great job. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one of those wonderful shampoos with the best neck massage in town!
Top Professionals & Best Service – I to have to respond in the strongest terms to the negative review below. I've been a client at J Brandon's for over 5 years. I am in this store every 3 weeks and have worked with every stylist including the owner many many times. The owner insists on the highest quality service and creates an inviting atmosphere for both stylists and patrons.
I find it odd that this recent customer generously "tipped" the stylist in question and gave her a big thanks? Now she claims she left nearly in tears? This was a "bogus" review by someone with another agenda. Look at the other reviews and come in and personally experience professional service in a fun setting!
Great Stylists – After reading a recent negative review regarding a stylist at JBrandon salon, it was clear I needed to voice my opinion. I have utilized the stylist mentioned for over a year now and have been absolutely thrilled with every haircut and other service I have received! I also know, for a fact ,that this stylist has received many, many compliments from those I have referred to her. In fact they still seek her services on a regular basis and have been quite excited about the cuts and styles they have received. I have never had anything but great service, the entire team of stylists are professional and treat their customers with respect. I understand that on occasion someone might not get the haircut that they had in mind, but to write such a personal attack was unnecessary. As a stylist (as indicated in her review), I would think that this person would understand this. It is unfortunate that she chose to be so unprofessional to write such a note. I am sure that this particular stylist as well as the other stylists at JBrandon are not upset that this particular patron will not be coming back! As for me, I will continue to seek the services of Alissa - you go girl!!!
Total Disaster – I received the worst haircut of my life here. I am a hairdresser so I know a good haircut from a bad one. The stylist, Alyssa, seemed uninterested in giving me the style I wanted. I brought a picture and the end result was NOTHING like it. It was choppy, uneven and out of date. I left this place almost in tears. I had wanted a trim and some layers, but left with a substantial amount of hair gone and out the money I paid for this wreck of a haircut.
I called to speak to the manager/owner hoping she would resolve the situation, but she was rude and hostile to me and made it seems like I got the wrong style because *I* didn't know how to communicate what I wanted (HELLO! I brought a picture!!). She offered to pawn me off on another stylist, and when I asked about her skills (continuing cutting education), she got very short with me.
Save yourself the hassle, and your hair. Go to a salon with a good reputation and shell out a little more money to get a style that you want and a stylist who cares about your hair.
J Brandons...no one else compares! – My husband and I stumbled upon this amazing, customer service oriented salon one weekend after being mauled by a "salon" across the street from J. Brandons. Since then, we don't go anywhere else. The parking is convienent, the stylists are always dressed professional, and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The salon is chic with it's unfinished floors, oversized floor lamps, and retro seating area. I personally love the one on one attention with the bonus shampoo and massage! No matter the day you go in, the vibe is always friendly and inviting, which, nowadays, is hard to find. Walk-ins are welcome and the wait is not long at all. Have a seat in the sunken retro seating, flip through a up to date hairstyle mag, and sip on wine. Bliss.
Exceptional Experience and you come out looking your best! – I have been going to J Brandons since they opened several years ago and gradually every other member of my family has become a loyal customer as well. I have 3 children (teens to 20's) in those hard to please ages and they have never been happier. They always "experimented with other salons" before trying J Brandons. Now they don't even consider going anywhere else. My college kid waits until she is home to get a haircut! They all have their favorite stylists but when they are not available they are always happy with who ends up cutting their hair. I have had my hair cut / styled by at least three different ladies there and I have been extremely pleased with everyone of them. The main reason I "request" Karen is for her famous shampoo and massage. I always feel spoiled after that experience. She needs to give lessons... then everyone would be equal there!
Hidden Treasure – I have been going to J. Brandon for cut, highlights and waxing since May of 2006. Everyone is so friendly and insist on pampering their customers. The first time I went in, I was big and pregnant, my roots were 2 inches long and hadn't had a haircut in 6 months. Karen was very helpful in helping me pick a haircut that would look good on me, during and after my pregnancy. While I was there, one of the other stylist did my makeup, just to help me feel better about myself and it did just that. The stylists there gave me that extra boost of confidence that I was so lacking.
Since then, I have found no reason to go to anyone else. I always feel right at home from the moment I walk in the door. My 5 year old daughter doesn't want anybody else to cut her hair, except Karen because she gives the best head and neck massages while shampooing her customers hair. I even got my mom going to Karen for her highlights.
My family and I are so pleased and couldn't ask for more in a styling salon. Thanks J. Brandon - Kari
Have the best looking family in town at this "family-friendly salon" – I have been a loyal client of J. Brandon's since they first opened their doors, and I look forward to my appointments because it is such a fun place! My kids all love going there......my sons enjoy flirting with the stylists, my daughter won't let anyone else touch her hair, and my mom looks forward to her weekly appointment. The minute we walk through the door, everyone greets us with a bright smile. The service is excellent, the stylists are all great, and the atmosphere is fun. But the best part is that my hair always looks fabulous, and I get compliments all the time. I owe it all to those talented stylists!
J. Brandon's is the BEST!
