I finally caved in and went to Vain after 3 friends recommended it. And it was there that I met Crystal, one of the coolest and most talented stylists in town. All of them are great and well worth the hefty fee. And they only use my favorite products by Kevin Murphy.
GO SEE SARA THOMPSON AT VAIN! – My hair isn't anything special, but Sara Thompson at Vain Salon makes it looks amazing. I've been getting cuts, color and highlights from Sara for a while now and will never go to anyone else again. She knows hair texture and what kind of cuts go well with face shape, body type, etc. I get compliments on my hair (cut and color) everyday, and thanks to Sara, I finally have confidence in my lucious locks. You will not be disappointed if you try her out! I've heard it through the rumor mill that she's a bad @ss with guy-cuts too....Check her out!
Great Salon! – I tried a bunch of different places when I first moved to Austin and Vain was by far the best. I've been going to Joey for years now, and she's still terrific. Great color and cut.
best haircuts in the world! – I have been following Buffy for a few years now, and she has given me some of the best haircuts I've ever had. I can't get over the fact that my hair can look so good with very little effort on my part because Buffy cuts the shape into it so well. I also tried color from her for the first time yesterday and it's gorgeous! I love that the two of us can collaborate on coming up with what will work for me--not only am I excited about my new look, but Buffy was also very invested in it. She spent 3 and a half hours with me (I asked for a lot of things!) and we were both ecstatic about the finished product. If you want to have cool hair, and you want other people to notice your cool hair, you should be going to Vain.
Penny is the best! – Ive been going to Penny for years and she is the best!I just love the way she cuts and colors my hair I always get tons of compliments,I have to drive pretty far to get my hair done but she is worth it!!!
best salon in Austin – I've been getting my hair cut and styled with Buffy for the last couple of years. I do not trust anyone else with my hair. She's creative and knows how to give a unique look that is specifically tailored to her client. I love that I can come into the salon and tell her to do whatever she feels like and I will leave the salon rocking an incredibly chic and stylish hair do. I've had dozens of hair styles done by Buffy and not one of them I was disappointed with. (I've also had my hair done by Tifffany when Buffy was booked solid and loved the cut as well.)
The salon itself is inviting and fun to come to. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. Everyone is very positive and talented. I never leave Vain disappointed.
Creative Stylists – My hair is extremely frizzy and difficult to cut and tame. I went to many places before I found Joey at Hairy Situations. She knew exactly what my hair needed and suggested products so that I could keep my hair in check long after I left the salon. She is very open to "tweaking" your cut to your specifications, and has great ideas if you have no idea what you want. I love Vain's decor and attitude. Additionally, they have fantastic product lines that can accommodate all types of hair. Most of all I appreciate what Joey and the other stylists are doing -- making styling and coloring an art form.
Cool east side hair salon for "dang I look good" cuts and color in a cozy, converted house. – In Short
Still hip but less intimidatingly punk than other local salons, this full-service hair salon inside an old east side house makes sure its clients leave with a super haute 'do. Once inside the relaxed space, staffers offer clients a complimentary beverage; opt for a glass of wine and let the pampering begin. Expert stylists consult with their clients to come up with a modern cut that's most flattering. Full color services include all over color, highlights and color correction. Keep your processed hair from looking frazzled with a conditioning treatment. Facial waxing is also offered at the salon.
The BEST! – I wouldn't go anywhere else! I've been a customer at Vain since they opened a few years ago. I actually followed Shawna there. If you are looking to be adventurous, want to try something new and fun she is one to see. The owner has done a fabulous job at making the cute house a great comfy place to relax and get beautified. Well worth every penny!!!
Best hair stylists in town! – All of the people that work at Vain are amazing. I have been going there since it opened, and I not only love my hairstylist, but everyone else there is wonderful as well. If you don't have a place you love, you HAVE to try this one! You won't regret it!
from a Los angeles girl... just what I needed! – I had my favorite hair cut at Vain by Crystal. I got compliments on it everywhere i went. I have gotten my hair cut in beverly hills for several years, and the style at Vain was up to par with what i was used to. I noticed some people said there was some attitude from the staff... I say, try going to a big city like los angeles (where new clients are actually turned away) and Vain will seem like a giant peace of angel cake!
Anyway, great hair cut and style, cool atmosphere!
