I haven’t been to anyone else in years. I have never received a bad haircut from Tim and I can’t say that about any other hair dresser, to whom I have been.

Ask for Emmy! She’s awesome. She’s super nice and casual you almost feel like you’re at your friends house getting a haircut (I say that in the best way possible) Always makes sure that she understanda what I want before she’s starts. I always leave satisfied and happy with her service. Thank you Emmy!!

Great salon! Kortney is amazing. She transformed my hair before my wedding into just what I was looking for. Went above and beyond with helping me dye my extensions.

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

Anyone wanting/needing foils, do yourself a favor and book with Madyson at Austral Salon. So about the salon itself ... The vibe when I entered Austral was calm, professional, and happy. I saw the young lady at the front desk wipe down the pens multiple times. There was plenty of soap and hand sanitizer on the tables. I’ve always loved the windows and natural light. Great space. About the stylist..Madyson’s abilities are second to none, and she’s so pleasant to talk to during my almost two hour foil sessions. She takes her time from the beginning of the appointment to the end. I’ve never felt rushed or hurried like I have at other places around the area. I’ve seen her a dozen times or so for full or partial foils, and I have had a few haircuts from her as well. She never gets “scissor happy”(which, if you have long hair, you can appreciate!) Can’t say enough about Madyson! She’s awesome :)My first review was posted about a year ago, and I haven’t changed my opinion about the salon or Madisyn’s work. Both are still awesome. When you’re reading the reviews, please don’t let a few negative reviews stand in your way of trying out Austral for yourself. I’m certain if customers would express any issues or concerns, that any of the stylists there would go out of their way to make it right. I’ve only known them to be accommodating. As for price..it isn’t the least expensive place in the area, but it’s not the most expensive either. Madisyn makes a recommendation and has never given me a reason to feel like asking about price isn’t welcomed or encouraged. In order to get what you want from a salon, you have to do your part and give them honest, usable feedback and a chance to make it right..this is different than trashing a business and people in an online review with a fake name.If you’re looking at these reviews, chances are you don’t like your current haircut or color anyways so give it a shot :)

Australs has been my hair salon since 2004, They are very good at what they do. I get my hair cut , styled , colored ,and highlighted . Also do Keratin treatments because i have very thick curly hair. They are wonderful with working with it and i have found that only hairdressers who know how to work with my kind oF hair are hard to find. So i stay loyal to them. I highly recommend them.
