Best Hair Stylist in Austin – Jodi is so good that I have followed her to three salons from the original one where I found her several years ago. I'd follow her if she left N Salon, but I do like this salon. The receptionist is friendly and helpful and remembers you. Everyone there is friendly and it is a pleasant space (with a nice looking spa) with plenty of parking at a central convenient location. But Jodi is the reason to go. She's always pleasant, warm, and professional. And, as someone already commented here, she has the perfect combination of truly listening to and responding to what you want with her knowledge of what is fashionable and will look good on you. I was apprehensive when I was trying to decide whether to start coloring my hair. With Jodi, I have never looked back. She's an expert colorist and great at creating styles with her cuts. I always feel great after I've had an appointment with Jodi asnd I do get compliments. I only wish I could style my hair like she does. But she's also good at helping you develop something you can do at home -- whether it is styling your hair or getting it into better condition with Kerastace products which absolutely change your hair unlike any other product line. I feel hair prices are high when I pay , but it takes the sting away when you're going to someone as professional, nice, and helpful as Jodi. I have recommended her to friends and family and do so with the highest recommendation. I couldn't believe that I saw some negatives reviews on this site. I cannot understand that! Please ignore them and take my advice -- go see Jodi yourself.
Underwhelmed! – Pleasant, plump & pricey! Charged way too much for the end result. Especially for already short hair! You can do better somewhere else for sure.
I want my money back! – I WENT AND SAW JODY BENETT AND SHE RUINED MY HAIR AFTER MAKING ME WAIT FOR LIKE AN HOUR. DON'T BE FOOLED BY ANY GOOD REVIEWS ABOUT HER BECAUSE SHE PROBABLY HAD HER FRIENDS WRITE THEM OR PEOPLE IN THE SALON! ALSO SHE CHARGED ME MORE THAN I WAS TOLD IT WAS GONNA COST!!
BAD EXPERIENCE HERE! – My hair tab breaks down like this: Bad directions TWICE by dingbat receptionist = 1 1/2 hours in my car being totally lost (quarter tank of gas at $3.62 a gallon and 2 toll roads) Total: Approx. $10.25. Price charged for haircut and color = $175.00 (She tried to charge me $200.00. I was quoted $155.00!) Tip = $10.00 (For no other reason than I'm an idiot! DON'T TIP IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY!) Favorite shirt ruined by haircolor (And I asked her if I should take it off) = $20.00. GRAND TOTAL: $215.25. And what did I get for my money? Well, the 4 other women that I work with didn't even notice that I'd had my hair done. Two of them actually said, "Hey, I thought you were getting your hair done this weekend." My best friend and roommate, out of town when I got my hair done (so one would think he would notice the change upon his return) also did not notice. Trust me, normally he would've noticed. So for $215.25 I got a whole lot of product in my hair that was apparently supposed to convince me my locks had been transformed. Could've done that myself, at home, in half the time. In fact, I DID end up doing it myself, (REDOING it that is) with a box of store-bought hair color and a friend that agreed to cut my bangs! But before that last resort, I called her and gave her a chance to make things right. I left a discouraged but cordial message that she didn't even bother to return! DON'T GO TO JODY BENNETT AT N SALON! JUST DON'T DO IT TO YOURSELF!
amazing, creative, skilled, sassy – i moved to Austin two years ago, and one of the first recommendations i received from a friend "in the know" was this: "go see Jody. she will rock your world." and indeed, she has been rocking my hair-world for two years now. she is extremely innovative and clever with color and cut, and the best part is that she knows how to strike the balance between making recommendations for you and listening to (or really feeling out) what you need and want. she's also extremely funny and cute, and makes your trip to the salon a treat every time. i've referred dozens of people to her, and now the only complaint is that they can't get a slot with her because she's so busy! very, very highly recommended...
Fabulousness in the hairstyle universe – Like many people, my hair does what it wants whenever it wants, and manageability is usually a joke. Especially here in humid Austin, maintaining a hairstyle with stubborn hair is beyond difficult. Thankfully, I found a brilliant stylist who understands my situation, and I've gone to her for cuts, stylings and color work ever since I moved out here 6 years ago. Jody Bennett has a great instinct when it comes to styling. She pays attention to her customers' concerns, and really familiarizes herself with the hair she works on. This is why I'm always very happy with the results! I get compliments on my hair all the time! Highly recommended!
Creative, Playful, Professional: Best Stylist in Austin – I am extremely particular when it comes to my hair, and Jody has never let me down. She communicates well, she's creative, she's professional and she's very very funny. Her styling and coloring techniques are truly a work of art. She?s very conscientious of her work and of your needs. She's done her homework - she knows all the latest trends and what is in style. She does a great job of keeping me looking hip, fashionable and stylish without looking silly or over the top. I consistently get compliments after Jody cuts my hair. I've even complimented other women on their hair only to find out Jody is their stylist too! I highly highly recommend Jody.
Jody is my hair guru – Moving here from LA in 2003, I thought I would never ever ever find a stylist that could even hold a candle to my beloved stylist in Los Angeles...lucky for me, I was wrong, and found Jody. I have very short hair and it's always been difficult to find stylists who know how to create very short cuts that look feminine, but Jody's got it down for sure. I also like to change my hair color with frequency (I'm currently a lovely sunkissed blonde) and Jody is also an expert colorist who's taken me from deep chocolate brown to the whitest platinum, cherry red and every shade in between w/o me going bald or broke. I would highly recommend Jody's services on a professional level, and besides she's very nice and funny which makes sitting in the chair with bleach on my head for an hour a lot more fun than it could be w/someone else.
Go see Jody!
Want to feel and look like million bucks? – So, it had been a while since I have had my mane coifed. I went to N Salon after hearing all of the buzz about it around the office. I made an apt. with Jody after a friend's reccomendation. I went in for a trim because I have been unable to work with it (for the past 10 years). I left the salon with a new sassy cut and gorgeous color. It's been 3 weeks and I still feel like a million bucks! Thank You Jody!!!!!
