Austin's best hair salon – Mark's style is so easy - the salon isn't drama central like many salons. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, patient and fun. Clint's shampoos are dreamy, and Mark is brilliant with color. I love every cut I've received, and Mark's been styling my hair since 2006.
Mark also styles my husband's hair. My husband usually complains about salons, but he loves Mark's salon - especially Clint and Mark. Jorge and Michael are also great - I've never personally used them, but I'd absolutely trust them. I've seen their clients and seen how they work with them, and the whole place is a class act.
What an Austin Blessing! – Mark Thomas cut his teeth in the fashion industry in New York and San Francisco but had the good sense to come live the good life here in Austin, Texas. What a blessing for us. Rather than having to fly to New York to get a hair cut and color like this, I can just drive up Lamar ;)
Mark's a true professional. He is the best colorist I've ever had and I totally trust my hair with him. Plus his prices aren't nuts. You won't be dissatisfied.
Jorge is Awesome! – I've been going to Jorge for several years for haircuts and color....he is the best! I also considered Jorge the "BrowMaster" because he is excellent with eyebrow waxing. Hands down he is a professional in every way and I know I will continue having my hair cut and colored with Jorge only!
Thank you, it's my pleasure to provide you with best.
No more Hair issues, Thanks Jorge ! – I've been going to Jorge for the past few months, and guess what?
NO SURPRISES !!!
I have consistent color and hair cuts that are flattering
and go with my personal style .
I was always searching for that one individual who could "produce" a fantastic look , not once, but everytime that I made an appoinment!
Jorge is also pleasing on the eye ,and easy to talk to!
What a find !
I'm happy to hear you love your hair. I'm grateful for your feed back. Thank you so much for the respose,
My 5 Star Hair Treatment Day – What a find! Visiting the fine city of Austin for a ISPA Convention , I was told of this Hairdresser Mark Thomas . I booked a hair treatment and color service . Wow my Color and Bayalge highlights ,cut and the most amazing what they called a facial for your hair by j.f.lazartigue .
I am already planning my trip back for more. Not only was it the best and most relaxing salon experiance I have ever had , I love my hair and the comments on how great my color looks as well as my cut.
The whole staff was 5 star from start to finish and i am loking forward to my next appointment .
We're proud to be the exclusive carrier for Lazartigue .
This product has been proven superior over all others for 30 , plus , years .
Hard times?? Mark's the man! – I have to let everyone know that after getting my hair cut and hi-lighted by Mark, I've never looked better or younger! I found him to be less expensive than the majority of Austin hair stylists. When my husband was between jobs, Mark worked with me to find a budget that worked for me and my whole family! What a thoughtful person!!! Thanks Mark!
What can I say?
We all need the best hair style possible , especially in a down economy !
One word ,Jorge! – My new hair cut from Jorge is awesome!
I don't have to do anymore than wash and go!
Edgy without the work !
Thanks, I really enjoyed taking care of you! It was great having you at our salon.
Thanks to Jorge, got the best cut since NYC! – How many times have I tried to relay to a stylist that I don't want to look like I'm "trying" to hard achieve a mordern cut/style for myself.
Jorge gave me a look and cut that only my NY stylist could produce. ( one that looks effortless and works with my over-all persona .)
What a wonderful experience with a truly talented individual!
Thank you ! – Thanks for the terrific write-ups.
We strive to continue the personal and quality service that is expected.
Fabulous! – Not long ago, as I sat down to have my hair cut by a new stylist who sported a gold corset and filled me in on all the details of her personal life (and every other stylist in the salon) I thought to myself, "Why is it so hard to find a skilled, professional stylist in Austin?"
My search is over.
Mark Thomas is *the best* stylist I've ever had. He has a WONDERFUL personality and I find myself laughing and laughing as he works his magic on my hair. He pays careful attention to what I ask him to do an never balks of chafes when I give him direction. His salon is clean, relaxing, and stocked with great products. Clint, his assistant, is an incredibly nice person and gives a shampoo that is to die for. I don't know Michael (the other stylist) but I have observed him with his clients and I would go to him in a heartbeat as well.
Mark utilizes a little-used but highly effective technique called "baliage" to highlight hair. Few stylists use this technique because it is not easy to master, but when done correctly it gets the color/bleach as close to the roots as possible (closer than the foil method). This allows Mark complete control over how and where he is applying the highlights and it makes for long-lasting highlights.
Marks haircuts have excellent structure and last forever, as well. This is significant because while you may pay a little bit more for one of Mark's haircuts, they last longer which will save you $$ in the end.
