Shelly is a great find!!! – Shelly was recommended to me by a friend. I was complimenting my friend on her hair and she told me about Shelly. I have been to her twice and my hair is more healthy than ever before. We have been working on turning me blonde and it has been a huge success. Shelly is so gentle on the hair and I believe she really knows her chemistry when it comes to hair. Shelly takes her time and weaves the highlights throughout the hair, not taking shortcuts and cutting in on the back. My cut is exactly what I asked for, the shop is awesome and peaceful. 2 thumbs up!!!
VERY Happy Customer is a fan – I heard about the new owner, Shelly, from my friend who has been seeing her for years. Until now, I have bounced from stylist to stylist looking for someone to get it right. I have seen Shelley 4 times now and she's "the one" for me! She understands my hair and the style I want and what products will work best for me. Within the first two visits, my hair looked and felt healthier than it has in years! The other stylists that I met there were all warm and conversational. I like the transformation she is making with the salon decor - it has a touch of class.
Bianca is the BEST! – I've lived in Austin since 1995 and I've had my hair colored blonde approximately once every 2 - 3 months since 1992. If you only count the times I've had my hair done since I've been in Austin, that's 60 times I've had my hair colored in Austin and I've NEVER had a stylist give me the exact color of blonde that I've asked for. I've always walked out of the salon slightly disappointed. Well, I'm FINALLY happy with not only the color but the cut of my hair. I showed Bianca a picture with the color that I wanted and she gave me EXACTLY that color. No excuses - no talking me out of it - she just did it. Of course, not everyone can have every color so I guess I was lucky that i was able to achieve the color I wanted. But it came out perfect and I was so happy. No othe stylist was able to achieve that for me. And I'm growing out my hair so I just wanted a nice trim that made my hair look healthy. I can't tell you how many stylists chop off inches when you just want a trim. But Bianca really listens to you and does exactly what you want. She's so great and talented. And the other great thing is she is so sweet and funny and great to talk to. The time flies by because she has a great personality and is the sweetest girl. If you are picky about your hair (who isn't???) and you want a stylist who is a nice, good person - then I highly reccomend going to Bianca. I'll follow her to any salon - hell, I'd drive to San Antonio to have her do my hair. That's how good she is. It's so nice to look in the mirror and be happy with your hair. Bianca did that for me. Go check her out - you won't be disappointed.
Love My Stylists!!!!!!!! – I just have to say something for my girls Nicole and Bianca who work at the color salon. They are two of the original stylist that have been at the color salon for a long while. So I think it is wrong to say that there are NO good stylist left at the salon. Yes I do have to admit that the changes arnt really my taste but It really doesnt matter what the salon looks like as long as I am happy with my stylist and my hair. They have both have done my hair and are Amazing!! I dont just trust anyone with my hair because I am to picky but I would definetly go to either one of them. They both listen to exactly what you want and they really do care about keeping your hair in good condition. I havent been dissapointed yet! NIcole and Bianca are both trained with the latest styles in hair coloring and cutting so they really do know there stuff! All im saying is not to juge them for where they work and what you have read about the color salon, they are really great stylist and you wont be dissapointed.
PAUL IS THE BOMB, FIND HIM AT THE TOPAZ SALON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Ok so I have been going to The Color Salon for years now, and all of the sudden Paul gets terminated and I cancel my appointment that had been scheduled. Then these new people at the Color Salon call me up and remind me I have an appointment and I said, NO PAUL DOESN'T WORK THERE ANYMORE!!! They responded that maybe I could try another stylist??!!! CRAZY!!! People that are loyal customers ONLY trust their stylist, not who ever decided to come in as new owners!! I think it is also weird that they turned the salon into what appears to be a thrift store!! Also, the new owners kept all of Paul's records for his clients and will not give them back??!! How wrong, his clients are important to him, so if anyone reads this and is looking for him, now you know where to find him!!!
Thank you for your review! Paul has personally called the Salon and thanked us for referring his clients to him. We were giving his cell number to anyone who called. Any salon that is commission, owns all client records. This is obviosly another review ploy to promote an ex-stylist and it is absolutely not true. We wish you all the best!
Super hair salon with great stylists – Shelley has been cutting my hair for over 10 years and see is fantastic. My hair is almost impossible to cut as it has waves, flips, a double crown, and it is thicker on one side than the other. Over my forty+ years in Austin, I have found only Shelley and one other stylist that could cut it properly. The shop is also decorated nicely and has a very elegant feel. Everyone is always friendly and accomodating. I would recommend Shelley and her salon to anyone. David Hargus
Versatile Stylist – I have been using Shelly Wuest exclusively for almost 20 years & have yet to be disappointed by her services & genuine caring attitude. She has always gone above & beyond to be sure I leave her chair completely happy & confident that my hair looks great!
I have seen the results of her talents on her other clientele over the years & have always been impressed by her versatility. She is able to make young children, teens, men & elderly women all leaving her salon looking & feeling their best.
Shelly & Charles have transformed the Color Salon into an inviting, personable & fun place to shop for unique boutique items, hair products in addition to complete professional salon services.
The salon is convientely located near Central Market, Amy's Ice Cream, movie theatre & many great restaurants.
I have, & will continue to recommend any & everyone to Austin Color Salon.
WHERE IS PAUL! – I went in to get my hair cut by Paul who I later realized had been terminated for some reason. I was offered another staff member to cut my hair, but upon going in, felt uncomfortable and out of place and decided not to.
I feel like a business should maintain relationships with good staff and customers. I was treated very poorly on the phone when I inquired where he was.
Overall, I would not recommend this business based off of my experience with them. The environment is awkward and the clientele reflects a business that does not match a younger (hipper) demographic.
I felt like I was surrounded by the crew of the titanic, nothing against that, but for a younger person (25-32) it was not a place for me.
I am a male and prefer to feel like an establishment wants more than my money for services offered, which could be matched for a lesser fee.
I wish no harm to the business, but strongly feel an overhaul is required to keep the ship afloat. They should consider updating their business - great examples, Birds Barbershop, Electra Hair Salon, Grapevine...
