Redheads...Austin is the BEST – As a natural redhead that has never colored my hair, I was taking a big leap of faith when I sat down and let Austin color it. Without me saying much, Austin knew exactly what I wanted and exactly how to make it happen. He exceeded my expectations by taking my natural red and enhancing it just perfectly. My hair is the best it has ever looked!
I will continue to see Austin as long as I live in Houston...I suggest you do the same.
Austin = Amazing! – I first visited Austin at White salon using a Groupon, and followed him to Craft because after two years of trial and error, he is the only stylist in Houston who has been able to handle my hair! He has done my cut, highlights and style three times now, and not only do I love the cut/color, I leave with a perfect blow out every time. For anyone with hair as frizzy and unmanageable as mine, you understand how rare this is! To top it off, every visit is always fun - a great experience all around!
Go see Austin!! – A Groupon brought me to Austin earlier this year, and I am going for my 3rd visit next month! Not only was I happy with the beautiful results of my first visit but fell in love with Austin's wonderful personality. He makes you feel instantly at ease and as if you've known him forever. He is down-to-earth, offers great suggestions and just knows his stuff.
He gets you in and out of the salon without feeling like you're being rushed or sacrificing quality. That's important because it's hard to make time to spend 1/2 a day at a salon. Another thing is that he's always ON time so no sitting and waiting forever like most salons. I really appreciate that respect of my time.
The salon itself is nice and relaxing. Parking, by the way, is so easy! That was a problem at my last salon in the area. I love that they actually have a parking lot.
Austin gave me beautiful subtle bronze hightlights for my dark brown hair the first visit. I left feeling so great and everyone noticed my hair the next day at work. Since then, I've had a few lighter ones added. My boyfriend loves my hair! I'll be experimenting next month with the Brazilian express treatment. Can't wait! I'm not nervous at all because I know I'm in good hands!!
Go see Austin at Craft. You won't be disappointed and will leave feeling amazing!
Austin=Awesome!!!! – Words cannot even begin to express how much I heart Austin and Craft Salon!
Through the years, I have been to several people for highlights and cuts. I have had the good, the bad and the ugly. But finally I can say that without a doubt, I have found the VERY VERY best when I booked with Austin Payne!
I happened on Austin by chance, when Craft called and said my former stylist was no longer there. I liked Cara and the gang at the salon SO much that I asked for a recommendation and Matt sent me to Austin for highlights and a cut. I was AMAZED!! My cut never looked better and my color was perfect!!!! Not too blonde, not too brown…just PERFECT! I received more compliments than I ever had before and the most glowing one was from my mother, a constant critic about my hair!!
Anyway, I have found my guy, and you should give him a try! He is very skilled, and listens to what you want or think you want and makes recommendations on what a good look would be for you. Give Austin a call the next time you need a cut, color, blow-out, etc. and I promise you won’t be disappointed!!!
Lola Does a Lovely Job! – I have become quite loyal to Lola at Craft Salon. She has cut my hair 5-6 times and also given me highlights. She really listens before she goes to work and the results are lovely. I have thick, wavy hair and if it's not cut correctly it just hangs there, heavy and clumpy. Lola cuts it carefully, first wet, then dry, and she knows how to skillfully bring out the natural wave and get rid of the weight.
I began to trust her so much that I decided to try some blonde highlights with her, the first time in 20 years. They turned out great -- subtle enough that they still looked natural, but they also brightened my look. I love it.
So, I would recommend Lola for a cut, or color, or both! Plus she's quite warm and easy to work with.
Austin does amazing work! – I went in for my Groupon today and Austin Payne took great care of me. I met him before at White salon through another deal and I was so glad he did my har for a second time. I had never had highlights before b/c my hair is black and I never would have thought that any color would actually work on me. He proved me wrong and gave me some amzing bronze/brown highlights. I see he has other great reviews on here and they are so well deserved! He's running some great deals right now and I took advantage of purchasing another. I look forward to going back in August. Thank you Austin for fixing an awful cut and for making my color look even better :-)
Ask for Austin! – I just moved to Houston from the metroplex and was desperately missing my stylist from home. I was very hesitant to try a new salon and a new stylist given past experiences that did not turn out so well. Austin put all my fears at ease! He listened to me and added his own suggestions as well. I love my new cut and want to spread the word to other weary customers. Craft Salon was excellent and Austin was just what I was looking for!
Austin Payne Rocks! – I moved from Dallas last September, and my friend recommended her guy Austin @ Craft Salon. I normally would drive all the way back home (aka 300+ miles) to my regular stylist, but I had an important event so I decided to branch out & give Austin a shot. I'm sooo glad I did, because he did an awesome job! I went from brown hair to a dark blonde, and it looks so natural. The cut was great too! My hair looks fab...THANKS AUSTIN!!!
Austin!! – I too was a client of Austin's at White Salon and was just heartbroken to find out he left until I found him again at Craft! I've been seeing Austin for about six months now and I can't imagine going to another stylist. Whenever I first started seeing him I would explain the look I was going for, and now I simply show up to my appointment and let him create a look he wants to try on me and every time I couldn't be happier! Austin is the best colorist I've ever been to, he has such skill in blending the tones for a truly natural look. He's also such a great person and really takes the time to get to know his clients.
Great Color for blondes – Craft is a great salon conveniently located in Montrose. The overall feel of the salon is hip, down to earth and relaxing. All of the staff I've encountered there have been helpful and laid back, while still being professional. They won't try to push products or extra services on you, which is nice. Great atmosphere and services.
I followed Austin from White Salon after just one cut and color with him. He did an exceptional job with coloring my naturally blonde hair. I got natural looking highlights and low lights that complimented my skin tone, and gave my hair brightness and depth. I have an appointment to see him for my next coloring. He definitely knows what he is doing with my hair and also seems genuinely interested in making sure I'm happy with my hair.
