I was new to Austin last year and was lucky enough to find shanna on the internet. She is by far the best colorist and stylist I've ever had (and there has been a long line of them!) my color is perfect! Her prices are reasonable and it's always a fun experience at the salon!! I regularly buy Kerastase shampoo and conditioner. They are must buys!
I've been a client of Shanna's for about 6 years. Her cuts always look terrific. She started coloring my hair about 3 years ago, and it looks so natural that most of my friends don't even realize that I have my hair colored! Empire Salon sells Kerastase products, and I have slowly added different ones into daily use. I think they help my hair look good. Shanna knows what she is doing and I highly recommend her.
Shanna is awesome! I have been going to her for about 5 years. Her color is spot on. I go for natural color and it always looks great. I have naturally wavy/curly hair that I wear both straight and curly. Her cuts make it look good both ways, and she has curly hair so she knows what she is doing. Go see Shanna, you won't be disappointed.
Shanna has been cutting & coloring my hair every 6 weeks for over 3+ years. That's a lot of cuts & color. She's professional, knowledgeable, listens & makes suggestions when I'm not liking my hair. (I found Shanna thru an online source after my former stylist stopped listening to what I would like & continued to give me the same haircut.) Empire Salon (formerly Steven Todd at this location) carries Keratase products. Shanna uses these products on my hair and while they are a high end product, I've never had a hard sell "you have to buy" this. I use the curly hair products & they are fabulous. If you have curly hair, I highly recommend Shanna. Another great thing about Shanna is she is very efficient with her time. I'm in & out in no time and I leave with great looking hair.
I first found Shanna in 1995 when I needed help with my wedding hair. Since then she has helped me through pregnancy hair, short hair phases, long hair phases, curly , straight...you name it! And finally, when it came time to needing color, I never even hesitated to let Shanna work her magic. Shanna is not only a FANTASTIC stylist, she is also a fantastic person. ... Oh, one more thing... In almost 20 years, I can't remember ever having to wait. She takes her client's time seriously an that is rare in and of itself. Treat yourself to a great cut/color and you''ll be hooked too!
Shanna has totally tamed my wild and crazy hair. My dry fuzzy frizzy hair is now soft, manageable and sleek. A rainy day in Austin used to be a potential hair disaster....and now it's no big deal! My hair is healthier than ever. I recommend Shanna to anyone with
A "thumbs up" is just not enough to express my sincere satisfaction with Shanna. I found her on citysearch last week after I came home from El Paso. The home of my stylist, of whom I have been committed to for the past 8yrs. The only time I ever colored my hair was with him. I stuck with my first. :) This last visit, I went to him and requested an Ombre style color. I SHOWED an example of my expectations. After 4 hrs in his salon, my hair survived being stripped,bleached,colored and cut. I left him with a broken heart and as an unsatisfied customer. My new spring style was not at all what I expected. It was ruined. After I came back home, I googled "color specialist in Austin"...Shanna was listed more than once and I called her. SHE SAVED MY HAIR!! I was able to take pics of my hairstyle and sent them to her via text. She was very prompt in her response to scheduling me. I am extremely satisfied with her coloring/cut skills. I have received so many wonderful compliments on my new hairstyle. As a reparative color recipient, Shanna applied the line of Kerastase products to restore health back to my damaged hair. I purchased the products to maintain the regimen. I have zero regrets. Shanna has gained a new client. She was so wonderful at helping me to feel comfortable. My hair is sooooo important to me that I waited 8yrs to color it again. To come out of this bad experience with a beautiful color, cut and style is nothing short of an answered prayer.
I found Shanna by searching for 'hair color specialist'. My current hairstylist had given me lopsided, gothic black hair and I didn't trust her to fix it. After seeing all the impressive reviews for Shanna, I decided to book with her. At my appointment, she was very straightforward about what to expect with my hair. She was able to lighten it by a couple of shades, which made all the difference. She also cut my hair and was able to take out a lot of weight from the 'shelf' of hair I always had from my other stylist. I am so glad I've found Shanna and I highly recommend her, she knows hair.
Shanna did an outstanding job with my hair color!! I highly recommend her.
I've found my stylist! – After many failed attempts at finding a new stylist, I finally found Shanna due to her great reviews and because she specializes in curly hair. Well what do you know, but Shanna informed me that I have wavy and not curly hair (no wonder all those products weren't working).
Shanna did a fabulous job - cut, color, and style! She also took the time to explain what she was doing and why, and gave me great instructions on how to create my new style at home. I couldn't stop looking at my hair in my rearview mirror all the way home. Thank you Shanna - it's so nice to love my hair again!!!
