Best Haircut in Austin! – I discovered Ritual Salon on a random walk around the neighborhood about 8 months ago. My stylist is Erica Cantu. Erica is super pretty, so when I was asked what I want to do with my hair, I said "I want a haircut that when I walk in somewhere, the general comment is "now that's a great head of hair!". Recently, I found myself in a circumstance of not being able to make it to the salon for a good 10 weeks. Normally after almost three months without a haircut, I'd look like a walking disaster. But I'll be darned if my hair still didn't look great even after all this time! Not to mention that she is so fun to talk to! She's very upbeat, laughs and smiles all the time.
Guys, do yourself a favor and get to Ritual for your next cut and ask for Erica! While you wait, you can even have complimentary beer, wine, sodas, or water. They really take good care of their clientele!
I have strayed twice in 10 years.... – .... and I regretted both times. Although it has recently changed from Salon Bloom to Ritual Salon, they give the same great service and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. I will never stray again. Both Kristy and Shannon are great stylists and fun to talk to. (they will even let you drink whiskey while you get your hairs cut). Check 'em out!
Amazing stylist – Ritual Salon describes itself as an "inviting salon where you will receive top of the line, precision cutting, multi-dimensional coloring." I found that the salon lives up to its reputation, and much, much more. My stylist, Erica, is truly amazing..her talent matches that of any stylist that you would find in a high end salon in New York or LA...attentive, with an expert eye towards cutting- edge fashion. What makes Erica so special is she brings not only her talent, but a homegrown aesthetic that is truly Austin. Her laugh is contagious, and I am only but one of many clients that have been coming to see her for several years. She makes the "cut" an experience..I would highly recommend Erica, and Ritual Salon.
Valerie Martin: Best ATX stylist! – When it comes to my hair I am HARD to please. I have been to salons ALL OVER Austin, but never went to the same stylist twice. Two and a half years ago that all changed when I found VAL. Someone had screwed up my previous haircut so I went to Val hoping she could save me. She not only corrected the previous stylist's mistake but gave me the best hair cut of my life and continues to do so to this day. She is the most knowledgeable hairstylist I've ever been to and in the past two years has changed my hair by recommending new products and telling me which to avoid, as well as giving me tips and tricks on how to make my hair more manageable and healthy. Once you try Val you'll never be able to go to another stylist again. Trust me, I would know...I recently moved to Dallas and still make the drive to see Val every few months! Give Ritual Salon a call and ask for VALERIE. It will be the best decision you've ever made for your hair. : )
Valerie! – Valerie has been making me beautiful for years! She always knows what do to whether I'm letting it grow out or want to go radically short. Her experience shines! I walked away this past weekend with a new rockin' color and awesome trim. If you want to try someone new with confidence call Val. You won't regret it. :)
Valerie is my favorite stylist – Valerie's haircuts are the absolute answer to a great curly hair experience. My hair needed some serious help today when I went to Valerie. I have been trying to grow it out and it had been a LONG time since my last cut. She created a great look that I didn't even know was possible with my hair. She didn't cut too much off and she knew exactly how to style it. I walked out of that salon thrilled with my haircut. Make your hair happy and book an appointment with Valerie.
The location is great and the salon is chic with a great vibe. Love the online booking!
Can a salon be an experience? – It's not that Bridget has been taking care of the family for almost 9 yrs...or that the salon is truly booming after she became the new owner...or that you get refreshments (ask for the Mimosa on Saturdays...hint hint).
It is that the place is really just hopping and busy with talented stylists. The place is chic, the mood is awesome, the music on the sound system makes you wanna bob your head (discouraged to prevent mishaps..just saying). The staff is is truly amazing, and know their stuff.
DO: Get your ass down here next time you need to fix your hair and get yourself an experience.
DONT: Spend more time at the old and washed up place you current frequent because you don't want to break up with your current stylist.
ritual salon is the best! – I've known the owner, Bridget, for years. I trust her completely and she does a fabulous job every time I come in. All the other stylists have loyal returning clients and I would let any one of them do my hair in a heartbeat. The salon is beautifully decorated and inviting. Bridget has done an amazing job creating an atmosphere of style, fun and relaxation. The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful. The salon also offers online booking and appointment confirmations, which are so great for someone like me who is always on a computer.
In a nutshell, this is my favorite salon in Austin. I look forward to every appointment because I know I will leave looking and feeling great! Go check them out ASAP!
My favorite hairstylist is Shannon – I have been going to this salon, now named Ritual, for years. Shannon has always been my stylist and I am very happy with her work. She really listens when I tell her what I want and delivers great results. Her highlights are the best I've ever gotten.
The free parking in front of the salon is also nice. No hunting for a spot or feeding a meter. Just park and walk in. Easy.
