JULIE MATA is an excellent stylist! – Julie Mata rocks as a premier stylist in Austin at this wonderful salon. I have followed her and her career for many years. She is spot on with listening to my ever changing requests with cutting my hair. Julie is so creative with color as well. Her head massage releases stress and relaxes you immensely while receiving a shampoo. People continually ask me who does my hair, and I have referred many happy customers to her. Julie is one of those truly positive individuals that is just fun to be around. We started off as a stylist-customer relationship, but as all Julie's customer's will testify, it's not long until you are fast friends with her and her loving family. I highly recommend Julie Mata and know you will come to appreciate her level of five star service as well. She is truly one of a kind!
At last! I have finally found what I've been looking for! – First and foremost, I must say that it truly was 'Divine Intervention' that brought me to this salon! I have been looking for a stylist/salon who could meet my needs insofar as what I wanted done with my hair as it pertains to the color, cut and product used. I moved to the area about a yr. and a half ago, and to my dismay, I could not find a stylist who would listen to what I wanted even when I gave them the specific brand name and recipe needed to produce the outcome I wanted. I had just missed my flight to the town where I use to live so that my hair stylist there could do my hair. After researching, etc., I called Samuel-Rey Salon, and I was able to be seen immediately as there had been a cancellation. To my delight, I got in immediately, and after speaking with Sammy, the owner, I learned that he uses the same product that my previous stylist uses as well. I explained to him what I wanted, and I asked if he could do it. He was most courteous and amenable to everything I discussed and proposed. How refreshing was that! He assured me that he could do it and that he could do it with the exact product I wanted. True to form, he was able to deliver, and I am ecstatic about it! I have finally found someone who will listen to what I want and who will deliver on what he says he can do! It was a breath of fresh air! Everyone in the salon was so friendly and courteous, and the atmosphere was so relaxing and unpretentious. I am so thankful to him and to all of his staff for making me feel 'welcome' and truly 'comfortable.' He is a true professional stylist who understands and cares about what the client wants. I am sold! I am very, very picky about my hair and how I want it done, and believe me, this place has the class and down to earth atmosphere that is unsurpassed! Thank you for listening and delivering Sammy! You have my business! Sincerely, Mary J. Salinas
Great Salon and Great People and of course GREAT HAIR – Major koodos, Great Hair, Great owners, Great management too. The staff is Amazing, Full of Knowledge, you can feel comfortable going to any stylist. A great place to come and get rejuvenated for both men and women. While your in make sure to check out everything in the store, it's a great place to find that perfect lil rare gift or piece of art that would compliment the new you..
As a former employee at this salon I know first hand that every single person working here is completely trust worthy and reliable. Anyone of them would give a complete stranger the shirt right off their back. Clients are always leaving things behind and their has never been a problem and I don't forsee that there ever would be:).
FANTABULOUS! – Awesome Awesome Salon! Everyone is wonderful and the salon is beautiful! I love my new "40 yr old make over" and will definitely be going back! I encourage everyone to go in and see for yourself what a great experience it is!
Fantastic Salon – The salon is awesome! Sammy can do no wrong. The highlights and haircuts are the best in town. You will feel like a family member upon walking in the door. And trust me the compliments on your hair will keep coming and coming!
The salon and the people are wonderful – I love this place. I walked in and just felt welcome. While I was getting my haircut everyone talked to me and was so nice. The place is beautiful and I love the boutique. Everyone here is professional. As for the comment about theft with a debit card, I am unsure how that would happen since when you use a debit card a pin # is required. I would never worry if I left my credit card or debit card behind. I know it would be in good hands.
My favorite salon! – I walked in, and smelled roses. The employees were all very nice and cheerful, and really made me feel welcome. I felt very relaxed from the get go, though I had never been there before. I even had a glass of wine when I walked in! It is so cute and fun, and the little shop in the front was fun to look around while I waited for my turn. My boyfriend kept coming over with some little thing to show me while I was having my hair done and I would laugh. My stylist was named Jennifir, and she was very sweet and cute. She made me laugh while we talked about boys and our day. The style was exactly what I wanted, and in the exact shade I asked for! The prices are just what you would expect, if you are looking to have your hair look fab-u-lous. Plus there are some really hot guys there who do hair, which Jennifir and I talked about quite extensively. ;-)
I suggest this salon to anyone who really cares about their hair looking good and having an atmosphere you can trust!
Always a pleasure doing business with you! :) – While I understand the serious problems identity theft can cause, I don't think you should make acussations without proof. As the manager of Samuel-Rey Salon, I can assure all of you that no attempts were made by this anymous client to contact the salon to inquire about any false charges, lost/misplaced cards, or unauthorized charges made to his or her account. Additionally, we do not use a pin-pad to process debit/ATM cards, and therefore would have been unable to use or misuse anyone's debit card for transactions. I certainly hope that you will take the time time to review what our other clients have to say about their experience with our staff and our prfoessionalism and expertise in both customer service and our field in the beauty industry. We strive to care for our clients' satisfaction and appreciate all of the referals and return business we receive.
As for "jh0686", I am sorry that you misplaced your card; I hope you are more cautious in where you misplace your things. Most importantly your accusations.
Come here at your own risk – I went here recently for the first and only time to get a trim and was fairly pleased with the results. However I accidently left my credit card at home and paid with my debit card instead which I never do. When I say never I mean that it's been at least a couple of years since I've used it anywhere. I have never used it online and it's been a long time since I've used it at a regular "real life" store. Next thing I know someone was making charges online and my account was overdrawn leaving me with no cash in my checking account. It took a while to straighten this out with my bank and in the meantime I didn't have any money to pay my bills with. I believe it was somebody at this salon and I have since found another place where the employees do a fantastic job and have thus far not stolen my identity!
LOVE IT! – First time at this salon and I love love love it! Smokey did my hair yesterday, he was so cute and sweet and he made my hair look fantastic. Its the first time I've ever had a man do my hair, which I would think would be uncomfortable expecially because Smokey is HOT. It wasn't uncomfortable at all, he was so sweet and had me totally relaxed. I even hugged him at the end...wtf? lol I will def. be back, even though its more then I like to pay. For cut, highlights, some super pricey product and tip it was almost $240 *faint* thats even with the 25% discount they gave me on the product (very sweet bwt) Its worth it, and I'm pretty frugal and not at all above getting my hair cut at supercuts. If you can afford it, its worth it! It was just a fantastic experience all around. Great place, I will be back!
