Kristen cut and styled my hair. BEST haircut ever! I showed her a picture of cut I liked. We discussed how it would work for my specific hair type and lifestyle. Great style! AND best of all - husband said cut made me look 5 years younger! Thanks much!

Haley was my stylist and I LOVE the work she did! I came in a pretty hot mess, and she listened and guided me to reach the best end results for my damaged hair. I wanted to add some dimension to my hair, so I asked to go lighter and get layers. I felt totally pampered and spoiled, I would definitely go back. Thanks Hailey!♥️

Emmie washed,cut,and styled my hair and did a nice job. I have very thick hair and most ppl don't know how to cut thick hair well. She is patient and takes her time to cut my hair correctly. I would recommend her to ones with thick hair!

Tim cut my hair. Kristin colored it. They were both warm, savvy, and good listeners paying attention to who I was and what style and color would work for me. I felt very comfortable in the salon -such a nice vibe- and with them. The layout & the attention you get are peaceful and spacious. I plan to keep going. I just recently moved here. I was very happy with the style and color. Susan S.

I have had my hair cut here a couple times and last time I went in I didn’t love the cut- but they were quick to fit me in to fix it free of charge with a different stylist named Mary (who was amazing and so thorough, highly recommend her!) and I’ll definitely be back!!! Austral/Mary had amazing customer service! 🤍

Lindsay is a very professional hairstylist and I could not be more pleased with the results. I told her what I envisioned and she listened and I got more than what I wanted in the cut, style, color, and highlights. She is a true professional that is very talented at her job. The others at the salon make you feel very welcome. Visiting Austral is a very good experience.

I’m super late on leaving my review but this place has probably the nicest staff I’ve ever interacted with when it comes to a hair salon. Also my hair stylist (Emme, sorry if I spelt it wrong!) did AMAZINGGGG! I was so happy with how my hair came out I felt like a brand new person! I’ve had very bad traumatizing haircuts so it’s hard trusting new people with my hair but she did such a great job and I will definitely be coming back! She was soooo nice and didn’t make me feel uncomfortable or awkward. In the past I’ve had people cut my hair in silence lol but she had good conversation and was just really nice the whole time. Y’all are doing an awesome job! Great staff
