Austin's best hair stylist- Matthew Redden – I just love Matthew at Roar Salon! Not only is he well qualified as a hair stylist he also makes me feel very relaxed while in the chair. He is open to talk with you about your hair/needs/type and best style for you. He is kind and a good conversationalist but doesn't bombard you with endless chatter. Call now and make an appointment! You will love him.
Best Hair Cut Ever – I have found a new lease on life -- at least when it comes to my hair cut -- with Emily.
A little background... I have had long hair my whole life and recently I decided I needed shorter hair that is more manageable and more presentable on TV (I'm a political analyst). I took the plunge with Emily and its been likfe altering.
However before she even took out her scissors she first talked with me at length about my needs, likes/dislikes, and routine. She also spent time "researching" by looking at my website and my different appearances to understand how my hair moves and my style.
The act of cutting is only one component of her holistic approach to understanding what goes into a cut one loves.
Aside from her mastery of hair cuttery, Emily is a lovely and affable person. What sets her apart is that she listens.
Briana is one of a kind! – Briana is one in a million when it comes to hair stylists. I have come to her with many impossible requests, including fixing my gray highlights gone wrong to going from red to blonde, then back to red again. Not only does she enjoy the challenge, she never ceases to amaze me with her work. The best part about Briana is her way to communicate and be on the same page with you (which is sometimes the most important part). Even when I don’t know what I want and make no sense, Briana finds a way to know exactly what I want and exceed my expectations. It won’t be another awkward hair appointment; you will leave feeling like you’ve met a new friend and with beautiful new hair. She is truly a one of a kind hairstylist with an incredible, natural talent for what she does.
Matthew at ROAR – If I had to sum up my first impression upon walking into Roar, it would be "precious." It truly is a gorgeous space down to every little detail. And the staffs' personalities match up perfectly to the overall ambiance. Everyone was extremely welcoming and made me feel like I was top priority at all times.
This is the first time I've ever had Matthew cut my hair, and I am so very pleased with the finished product. He listened to my concerns but also recognized that I was open to his professional opinion on products and styling. I will definitely go back to Matthew in the future!
Lauren- Amazing! – Roar is adorable! I had my hair cut by Lauren, who was super professional and really sweet too.
I was a little iffy if I wanted to change up my look drastically or not, but Lauren took my few cues and really ran with it and I am so happy with the result. She also walked me through some styling tips and easier ways to accomplish the same look that she gave me.
The staff is super friendly and really goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Lauren! She has me feeling like a superstar!
Matthew & Briana – I had an amazing experience at ROAR. From the front desk to the stylists, everyone I interacted with was welcoming and outgoing.
Briana Clark did my color and I couldn’t be happier with the results. She was easy to talk to and understanding about my apprehensiveness to color my hair. She suggested a gloss and explained exactly what she would do before starting. The color turned out better than I could have hoped for.
Matthew Redden did my cut and it’s the best one I’ve gotten in I don’t know how long. He is a perfectionist in every sense of the word and spent the time necessary to give me exactly what I wanted. He is also extremely personable (and adorable) and I truly enjoyed visiting with him during my cut.
Aside from the incredible people, the salon itself has a great feel and is decorated to a T. After my experience at ROAR, I know I will never use another salon as long as I live in Austin! They are truly the best.
Brian & Emily – I went to Brian for blonde highlights and Emily for a cut and it was amazing!! Brian made my color look so great and fresh I love it. Emily is amazing she sat down and took the time to ask what I really wanted to do, then she cut my hair from really long to mid-length with lots of layers and now it looks the best it has ever looked.
Hands down the best cut/color I have ever had :)
Briana--Awesome cut/color! – Briana is absolutely wonderful! She always does a great job of getting my hair precisely the shade of red I want!! I get so many compliments on it! When I'm looking for a change or something more exciting for my hair she comes up with creative ideas to update my style with my color and cut--we've done an ombre with my color and most recently she did some face-framing and added bangs about which I've always been apprehensive, but she knows what she's talking about! Briana is full of great tips for healthy hair too I love it! She's so fun to chat with, and she's also very professional! I send allll my friends to her! BRIANA IS AWESOME!!!!
Briana is the best! – Briana started doing my hair about a year ago and she is by far the best hair dresser I have ever had! Bright purple can be tricky but Briana makes it flawless everytime. I've never trusted anyone with my bangs but they always look perfect after I get a cut. I've never gotten so many compliments before I started going to her so I'm always handing out her cards and recommending her to all my friends.
Mathew, Mathew, Mathew!!!! – I don't think I've ever enjoyed getting my haircut as much as I did at Roar. Mathew did my hair and I want to pack him in my suitcase and take him with me when I move to California--and not just b/c he is a genius and gave me the best hair cut I've ever received. He has such an awesome, fun personality. We chatted the whole time. I think at one point I was laughing so hard I started to cry. MATHEW at ROAR!!! he is a superstar. you will not be disappointed. he is very talented.
