Autumn was perfection! I was in town on business and needed a cut badly. She came through and did such a good job, I'll be using her in the future. I'm here often enough to make her my regular stylist. She's young, but brilliant!

Kourtney is a genius! She sits down with me every time I get my hair cut and we talk about what I want versus the reality of my hair! 🤪 A consultation every hair cut! Then she works her magic. I am never disappointed and always amazed at Austral Salon! Thank you Kourtney!

Austral Salon was my last stop in my hunt for an outstanding hair salon. These guys are color professionals. I have never received highlights like they offer at Austral, either.I'd like to encourage you to forge a relationship with one of the professional stylists at Austral. They are the best in town.EDIT: 10/27/2022Austral Salon opened in 1987. Oh, Brother! I have been going to Austral Salon since they opened. I know that I am a 'lady of a certain age', but I have never frequented a salon for 35 years before. Austral Salon served me well in my early 30s. Do not do the math...Tim cut my hair in the 80s someone else did my color. Tim is specialized! This was back when Tim used to make his 'grand entrance' into the salon. The theatre! Okay, boss, Charlene, I will stop. Austral STILL is the best in town.EDIT: 10/28/2022KRISTIN, who has the dubious distinction of her station's being right beside Tim's, has been doing both my color and my cut for the past 5 years or so. KRISTIN does those kinds of cuts that 'shake your head and it falls back into place. I treasure that.There is no telling WHAT I'll ask KRISTIN to do as far as color is concerned. KRISTIN is cheerful about everything...KRISTIN is also a wizard.EDIT: Kristin (and I ?) have changed my dark brunette hair to a dark blonde. Lord, but I do like it, especially the highlights.

I cannot Rave enough about the salon. I've been a client for over a year now and my hair has always come out so well. I went to them when my hair literally was burning and falling out due to other services at another salon. They were able to bring my hair back to healthy condition and still keeping me my pretty Platinum blonde. I ventured out and did some fashion colors this week and it turned out so good and was insured that my hair would still be in a good healthy condition if I wanted to go back blonde. They walk you through every single one of your options and let you know the outcome before making your final decisions. Hands down will not trust another living soul with my hair other than kortney!!!

I had such an amazing experience during my first trip to Austral Salon. The salon itself is beautiful and spacious with an eclectic blend of modern and contemporary elements. The front desk was very welcoming and friendly and offered me a drink, gave me a gown, and showed me where to hang my coat. And it only got better when I met Kylee, my stylist. She was absolutely awesome. She was sweet and had a great demeanor. She listened to me carefully when I described what I was looking for and answered questions, offered suggestions and did an excellent job with my color. And the products she used smelled so good! I wasn’t familiar with the product line before but it left my hair feeling so soft. And my blowout was so chic. The price was very reasonable as well. I will definitely be back!

What is balayage?

Balayage is a highly sought-after hair coloring technique that can create a natural-looking and sun-kissed effect on your hair. Unlike traditional highlighting methods, balayage involves hand-painting the hair in a sweeping motion to create soft, blended highlights. This technique allows for more control and precision, resulting in a customized and personalized look.

The word “balayage” itself comes from the French word meaning “to sweep” or “to paint”. And that’s exactly what our expert stylists at Austral Salon in Columbia, SC do – they carefully paint the hair to achieve the desired effect.

What makes balayage so popular is its versatility. Whether you prefer subtle, soft highlights or a more bold and dramatic change, balayage can be customized to suit your unique style and preferences. It works on all hair types and lengths, from short pixie cuts to long flowing locks.

One of the key benefits of balayage is its low-maintenance nature. Since the color is applied in a way that mimics the natural way hair lightens from the sun, regrowth is less noticeable and touch-ups are minimal. This means you can enjoy your balayage look for longer periods without frequent visits to the salon.

At Austral Salon, our expert stylists have mastered the art of balayage and can create stunning and personalized looks to enhance your natural beauty. Whether you’re looking for a subtle sun-kissed glow or a bold and vibrant transformation, our team can bring your hair vision to life.
