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.

I love this salon, all the employees are professional and very friendly. I go to Kortney and she always goes the extra mile to get my hair to where I want it to be. I’ve been going to her for years, and even after moving 1.5 hours away, it’s still worth the drive.

Yay! I got exactly what I wanted this time! I've been to several different salons over a span of many years, chasing a certain shade and quantity (a lot) of blonde. Before now it's been a VERY long time since I've looked at my hair and thought, "This is it, perfect!". It's embarrassing to say but I actually got a little emotional for the first time ever in a salon LOL! Oops. I do think it's necessary to add that because THAT'S how happy I am. Thank you Kristan (spelling?) 🤗

Tim is a miracle worker. I got probably one of the worst hair cuts I’ve ever received from another place. I thought there was no hope for me and my hair. It was already way shorter than I wanted with awful layers. I wanted a cut that didn’t take anymore length off and made things look better, but I was skeptical that anyone could do that. The salon replied to my email in a day and scheduled me for the next day. I got there and they were professional and so sweet. When Tim saw my hair, he knew it was a disaster. But he fixed it and made it 150% better. I highly recommend the salon, especially for those with short hair that’s difficult to work with. Thank you all :))

Madisyn is wonderful! She is very skilled and listens to what you want. She has been doing my hair for two years now, and has consistently delivered beautiful results. Today I came in with a few photos, gave her some loose parameters, and said “I trust your judgement”. She did not disappoint! Austral’s atmosphere is nice and welcoming, and after years of searching I finally found a hair dresser and place that I “click” with.
