generous, excellent dye-jobs, free fringe trims for growing haircuts, schedule in advance – Chloe, a hairstylist who works here, has been cutting my hair since the first haircut I ever had. I've never gone to any other salon, but I have gotten a few substitute stylists from Mint when she's been away. None of them have ever been grumpy or aggressive about their opinions, but have seemed to read my mind to create exactly what I wanted, even when I wasn't sure what I wanted. To anyone who thinks they might feel out of place here, I can tell you immediately that you won't. It doesn't matter what you wear (that doesn't affect what hairstyle you'll get anyway) because it's casual there. The receptionist will always offer you a [complimentary] drink to sip and there are hairstyle magazines to sift through for those who are undecided. The stylists generally work quite well off pictures, so if you want the same haircut as your friend, you can bring a picture of him/her (but I wouldn't recommend that).
I've watched every ethnicity in every gender walk out of this salon looking gorgeous. I've watched the blandest people in the world come out looking strikingly diverse. Either way, this is the salon for you.
So great! Love em! – I've been to Kenny for highlights several times - very natural looking and he is so sweet and fun!!!!! Love him. I also went for a blowdry with Darylynn one day when Kenny was busy. She is so nice and a lovely person too! They are always so sweet when I call. I love them!
I love my highlights – I see Kenny for my highlights and haircut and he does a wonderful job. The salon is modern and clean and the front desk is always friendly. I have curly hair and have had trouble in the past finding a stylist. Kenny really understands curly hair and always listens to my ideas. He is the first stylist who has helped me grow my hair out and he never cuts off more than I want to. The salon is located centrally in Hyde Park and has plenty of parking.
Terrible Stylist with Bitchy Attitude – I saw McKerry for a cut and color. This stylist has a horrible attitude! I was kept waiting for about 20 minutes before my appointment, but I didn't really mind. What I did mind, however, was how I was treated once I sat down. The few comments she made to me were short and snide. Though I was a new client, she spent no more than 30 seconds consulting with me on what I'd like done with my hair and, throughout the two hours that she spent on it, nothing was ever said about what she was actually doing to it. It was one of the most uncomfortable experiences that I have ever had in my life (and I am a really easy-going person). I expected much, much more from a stylist who charges over $200 for a cut and color. I certainly will not be going back!
I highly recommend Suzanne at Mint – I love the atmosphere at Mint Salon. Suzanne is fun and creative. Since I've been going to her, I've constantly been getting compliments on my hair style and color.
BEST SALON IN AUSTIN – It took me 10 years to find the perfect salon. I FOUND IT! Kenny has transformed my bleached blonde, damaged hair, to a beautful natural, healthy look. My hair was overprocessed, damaged and the style was NOT flattering. My hair now looks amazing! I have received more compliments in the past 2 years. Kenny is fun, friendly and I love the brutal honesty. :) The salon is clean, the staff is great!! Melissa is wonderful -- Always smiling and so helpful! Kuddo's to this great salon! It is a little pricey for my budget, but you definitely get what you pay for. Well worth the money!
Professional – I went on friend's recommendation to Kenny (the other stylist has such a devoted client base he doesn't accept new clients) and he was excellence. Friendly, easy going he listened to exactly what I wanted. I
was thrilled with what he did and he seemed to enjoy what he does- maybe because he has a lot of skill and I am sure plenty of happy clients. Anyway, this is my second year here and it is the first time I finally found someone I want to stick with. Maybe my recommendation can save you some time,money and frustration. The salon was clean, no attitude either. As for price, it ain't Supercuts (eww!), so if you can't break a
$50 then maybe it is not for you. In my experience you get what you pay for, and you don't want cheap hair unless you work in radio or something.
Excellent style and color from Suzanne – Suzanne has been cutting my hair for several months and does a great job. She recommended that I consider color and highlights. (My formerly auburn brown hair has gotten a bit dull and grey.) I was apprehensive since I do not like chemicals on my hair and since I had never had it done before. She listened to my concerns an made some suggestions. Ultimately, I decided to give it a try, and I am delighted. My friends and family did not quite know what was different, but thought that I looked younger and better. She did a terrific job;very subtle with nice "sun kissed" highlights. I'm definitely going back!
Still undecided =/ – I tried this salon because it was near my old apartment, and I'm still not sure how I feel about it =/ All trims are charged as cuts, so I can never afford to get my hair trimmed when I get it colored. Also, the first guy I went to there (the receptionist picked him for me) didn't pay attention to what he was doing and when I got home, I found pieces of hair around my face that hadn't been colored at all! He charged me very reasonably however, so I didn't bother to gripe. So again, it was close to where I lived, so I tried a different stylist and she did a very good job, but it took over three hours just to do my roots and the pricing was insane (I remember it was roughly over $200. To do my roots.) The stylists were friendly when I went and seemed to do a good job of listening and discussing what I wanted, but I'm not sure I'd go back.
Erin Jantzen - Best for cut & color - and she's fun ! – Many times, you never know what you're gonna get when you are on vacation and looking for a cut & color. I found Erin at MINT and now I wish I lived in Austin! She Rocks ! I recommend her very highly!!!!
