Samantha Kent speaks – With comments made by jeanvaljean1823, it makes one wonder why Solaria Day Spa mets its demise shortly after Lady Katelyn left.
PLEASE NOTE THAT LADY KATELYN IS NOT SAMANTHA KENT...I am Samantha Kent and I reside in The Palisades with my husband.
jeanvaljean1823...get your facts straight before you spout things that are untrue!!!
Staff writing own reviews? – Samanthakent (Review - Celebrity Hair Stylist in Lakeway) is Lady Katelyn. :( Doesn't say much when they can't even have their friends write their reviews and have to do it themselves.
Lady Katelyn is Amazing! – Finding a good hairdresser is hard enough. Finding one that takes it to a whole new level is something else. Usually you only find such artists on the coasts - LA or New York. To have one here in Austin is simply stunning!
But once you read her client list you won't be surprised. Lady Katelyn has worked extensively with Hollywood stars and fashion shoots.
My wife recently wanted a whole new look, to match Her new attitude. She wanted something drastic - to cut off her shoulder length hair and have a close-cropped, very short look - but also very feminine. She Who Must Be Obeyed gave me the task of finding the BEST hairdresser for this important project. i made some inquiries, did some searching - and came upon the incredible Lady Katelyn.
Lady Katelyn listened very closely to me, and offered a lot of suggestions. I could tell right away that She knew exactly how to handle this potentially dramatic make-over. Newly confident, i spoke about with my Wife and she took over from there. At this point all I had to do was pay!
Luckily, my Wife allowed me to attend and wait while the transformation took place. Lady Katelyn was everything I expected - and more. She was smart, bright, professional. She put us at our ease. Everyone in the salon was terrific. The outcome was simply stunning - my Wife looked simply like a new a Woman. She is incredibly high maintenance and tough to please (i know) but she was simply blown away by the Lady Katelyn.
There is only one place i would consider doing my Wife's hair. And that is the Solaria Day Spa. And only one Woman who understands the special needs of a tough, demanding Woman - the incredible Lady Katelyn.
My Comment Too... – This place is loud. Maybe the person below was there on a quite day, but when I was there it was loud too. Nice inside but the noise level was to high for a spa. The person who worked on me was nice but I was distracted by all the other things going on. Laughing, joking, and yes the phone ringing. So I agree with the second comment.
Had to comment!!!!! – Hi everyone. Forget what this person who submitted the last review said! I have been going to Solaria for at least a year now and this place is the PERFECT spa to relax in. Yes it is pretty and tastefully done, although you wouldn't know it from the outside, and the atmosphere is very spa-ish and relaxing. I get massages by Liz and she keeps me coming back. Melanie, the facialist gives superb facials and is extremely knowledgeable in her field. Speaking of the hairdresser, what hairdresser isn't a little eccentric or unique? C'mon people! What spa have you gone in where the hair area wasn't a little noisy? The relaxing stuff like facials and massage is done in a separate area!
Not so Relaxing but Pretty. – I told a friend about my bad experience at this spa a few weeks ago, she told me about Citysearch. I have since found a nice quite spa and decided to write my own review. When you see the word SPA one would think this means a place to relax and unwind. NOT!!!! All I heard was the loud, obnoxious, crazy unbelievable stories by the hair-dresser, the wrong music and the phone ringing. So if you are looking for a place to relax this is not the place. Save your money and try the Spa down the street. The only positive thing was that it is decorated nice.
The Very Best Spa in the Hill Country! – I wish I had found Solaria a year ago when they opened! I went for a manicure and pedicure, did not want to leave, ended up spending the day. Jennifer's manicure and pedicure was the best I have ever had. I kept adding appointments as the day progressed. Melanie gave me a fantastic facial, products were top of the line. Lis is a fantastic massage therapist and I ended this great day with a new hair style and color by Lady Katelyn, Trichologist/Stylist. When I read all other reviews, I totally agree with them all. The owner, Laurie has put together the best staff I have ever found! I have already booked all my appointments for next month. Lady Katelyn transformed my frizzeled burned hair into a beautiful color and sassy, fun and easy to handle style. L.A.'s loss is our gain. I can not say enough about this wonderful little spot of Heaven in Lakeway.
CELEBRITY HAIR STYLIST IN LAKEWAY – Mere words cannot express the gratitude that I have for Solaria Day Spa. I?ve been going to this little slice of elegant heaven for the past 6 months and have always received top of the line services. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable that I feel like just pulling up a chair and staying awhile. To label this place as being one thing is hard; with its rich bronze floor to ceiling drapes, the Moroccan style mirror in the hair salon, the warm copper floor to the dark walnut furnishings, this is what a day spa should be. When I?m there, I never want to leave.
On my most recent visit, I had the pleasure of sitting in a styling chair and being catered to by one of the most talented hair person in the industry; to call her a hairdresser would be an insult. HAIR ARTISTE? EXTRAORDINAIRE is more like it.
She calls herself, Lady Katelyn?and she is every bit of this and more. Being in her chair was like watching a true master artist at work. After a thorough consultation, Lady Katelyn began creating a look for me; something special that no other person has. My hair, a virtual train wreck; she definitely had her work cut out. I?ve got super wiry, thick, course grey hair that just kinda sits there. The color was long over due and had turned brassy on the ends?like I say; she had her work cut out.
When she was done (she?s fast, too) I almost didn?t recognize myself; gorgeous shiny color, beautiful haircut and she even showed me how to take care of what she did. My husband loves the new me. I WILL NEVER GO ANY PLACE ELSE.
Beverly Hills California may have lost a hairdresser, but The Hill Country has gained a true hair artiste.
Know what they are doing – I'm not sure I would say that this is a lux spa, more like a nice nail place, but...they do a great job. My solar nails are perfect, the cuticle is healthier than it has ever been and the nail bed seems to be in great condition too. The facility is extremely clean, and chairs are great. I might try the other services too (massage, facial, etc.) I highly recommend.
Outstanding Pedi for Exfoliating – I went to Solaria Day Spa for the Restorative Pedicure and was blown away by the kindness of the staff and quality of the services. I run/workout frequently and wear high heels that that tend to leave my feet calloused. This pedicure is awsome as it removed all my callouses and left my feet and calves feeling incredibly soft, refreshed, and relaxed. I have tried several pedicures at Austin Area Spas and Solaris by far exceeds all of them. The massage chair is amazing and the nail tech does an excellent job massaging your calves and feet. There is also this great smelling spearmint product that is rubbed onto your feet before your feet get wrapped into these warm towels. It leaves your feet feeling tingly and fresh. The polish job was great as well. The staff was incredibly nice and the spa's interior is incredible. Can't wait to go back again!
