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!

I had an amazing experience at Austral Salon this last week! I have been wanting to add a hint of purple to my dark har for years and Kylee walked me through the process for Balayage and it look amazing- and subtle, which is exactly what I wanted! She also gave me tons of helpful advise on keeping the color bright. Can't recommend Kylee enough!

The customer service here is spectacular, and all of their stylists are very skilled. I highly recommend Kortney; she rearranged her schedule for me as a new customer and gave me *exactly* the haircut and blowout I wanted. She’s an absolute sweetheart and I’m so happy to have her as my stylist from now on. 15/10
