The best salon in Austin. Period.
Ok. So I have SUPER curly, SUPER difficult hair. I've always dreaded going to get my hair cut because I always felt like the stylist would just try to get me out of there, I would always argue with them, and I was always emotionally exhausted after a hair cut. My recent hair cut with Janet St Paul blew all those cuts out of the water!! John, my hair stylist, was SUPER knowledgeable with curly hai
What a quality studio! Right from the moment I walked in, I was greeted by the friendly staff like I was a long-time customer, even though this was my first visit. My stylist John was super engaging and gave me one of the best haircuts I've gotten in my life, and the whole time he shared with me hair care tips and tricks on how to keep my hair looking salon-fresh from home. I highly recommend giv
Do you enjoy feeling special and well cared for? Then this is the place for you. From the moment that you walk into the door of the Studio and as you are saying good bye everyone there will make you feel special and they will cater to your needs. They are not pushy with their products but make you aware of what they have to offer in case you need or desire any product. I look forward to my ne
The best haircut and color in Austin. Period. An unparalleled cut, color and customer service! Every time. Update: I have long-loved Janet St. Paul for the way they make me look and feel my best. The way the management and team has responded to this unparalleled COVID-19 challenge makes me respect and appreciate their beauty industry leadership even more. I doubt any business--including medical
Great stylists - wonderful staff - they take great care of you!
I’ve chosen Janet and her team for five years to take care of all my salon needs (cuts, color, treatments). The professionalism and environment created for me as a client is top notch and centered on ensuring I walk out feeling refreshed and looking fabulous. As Janet and her team reopened post pandemic shut down, the intentional protocols implemented are outstanding. My experiences have been exe
This salon is by far the best I have experienced. Janet St. Paul and her team have gone above and beyond in the face of the Covid Pandemic and I feel safe, confident and comfortable going in for my haircuts. While the procedures seem over the top, I assure you they are perfect given these scary times. I thank the entire team at Janet St. Paul for their diligence and attention to detail and excell
Janet and her staff have gone above and beyond to make me feel comfortable while dealing with new regulations for the Covid virus. I’ve had two haircuts since the salon has reopened and both visits were great. Janet is so talented and really listens to my wishes about hair styles and care. The staff always makes me feel special!
This is the best studio in town and they have gone to such lengths for it to be safe and sanitized. Janet is so amazing and talented and she brings her energy and enthusiasm to the whole place. I can't recommend more highly!
Janet and her staff throughout the Covid pandemic have been exceedingly conscientious. The salon standards before the pandemic were stellar and remain so now. In my opinion they have served the public well through strict adherence to health guidelines for both the client and the staff. It’s not just business as usual there.It’s business with the highest integrity. It’s all good. To experience th
Janet and Shannon have transformed my fine, limp hair into the best hairstyle of my life! They are professional, knowledgeable artists!
They are amazing! Sherry did a fabulous job on my hair, what a mess it was. I am growing out a pixie cut and it was extremely uneven and thick and heavy on top. She pulled out a lot of the weight and gave me an adorable Bob Cut, finished with bangs. With over 25 years of experience she knew exactly how to make this happen with minimal loss of length. She has certainly become a favorite stylist of
Every stylist serves up top of the line services!!
This salon was absolutely lovely! The staff are so kind and helpful. There are many thoughtful touches throughout the studio as well. It is an experience to make you feel very beautiful and pampered! I recommend that you go and guarantee you will leave satisfied and happy!
Nicole is fabulous. She listened to what I wanted & gave me exactly what I wanted and needed! I needed a bit more hair cut off than I realized so she gently worked her magic transforming my hair into a beautiful easy to style look🥰 The products she recommended work wonderfully too!!!🤍
😍Janet's simple and expert cut and style gave me just the lift I was hoping for. Nicole's color tips were stunning. I look forward to returning and learning more about how to do my hair on my own.
I had my first appointment yesterday with Conrad (haircut) and Linnea (color). They both spent the time to learn what I specifically wanted done to my hair. I have a lot of hair, thick/wavy, and got a dry cut by Conrad. My hair has never looked or felt better. I got all over, single color with Linnea and it turned out exactly how I wanted. I am so happy I found this salon.
I can’t say enough about how amazing Janet and her staff at the studio are! From the minute you walk in to the moment you are finished, you are pampered and attended to constantly by the whole crew. Janet has such incredible vision for what looks great and gave me a cut that is fresh, stylish and best of all easy for me to maintain. Michelle did a fantastic job on my highlights as well - I can’t
Janet St. Paul Studio is truly a beauty and hair salon that exudes excellence both visually and in the caliber of stylists, front desk team and management. The award winning reputation is well deserved and the salon's healthy feeling and vibe is the best!
I received a fabulous cut from Michelle and lots of fantastic tips and tricks from Nicole. An amazing experience and I can’t wait to come back for highlights. Thank you ladies!
Janet St. Paul is a miracle worker. She not only saved my hair, she gave me the best cut in my life! So glad I found her. I will never go to anyone else.
I've been going to see Janet for years now. I ditto what everyone else has said. I get an awesome cut in a wonderful place with wonderful people. I totally love being with Janet and having her cut my hair. She is very talented and is an awesome human being. And that has translated to creating an amazing business with a beautiful staff. If I worked in this business I would want to work at Janet S
They took the time to assess my needs and made sure I was very comfortable while at the salon . Professional and courteous. I was from out of town and and felt extremely welcome. I will be back next time I am in town.
UPDATE (April 2019) - Jessica did permanent eyeliner (semi-permanent tattoo) on me, and I am IN LOVE!!! I'm a mom and work from home, so I rarely put on makeup anymore but with the permanent eyeliner it looks like it's always on! I love it - ready to do my lips next. The stylists at Janet St. Paul Studio really took the time to understand my lifestyle, preferences and help me choose a cut that w
I drive from Houston to Austin to see Nicole for an awesome hairstyle. The entire staff are very friendly.
3 weeks after getting a bad haircut at another salon, Nicole worked her magic and transformed my hair into a soft, sexy style that flattered my face. She took the time to teach me the best way to blow dry and style it myself. New to Austin, I have found my stylist!!!
I enjoyed the total experience, the staff were professional & friendly. Shannon gave me one of the best haircuts ever! I already made my next appointment!
Three of us arrived at the salon on a windy, January morning in Austin for my son's wedding - within minutes enjoying cappuccinos. The entire experience was relaxing and pampering during the talented team's execution of perfection. All I did was show Janet a pic of my gown and she took it from there into an amazingly sophisticated transformation that made the evening even more spectacular. Many
Loved my haircut. Linnea did a wonderful job. The place has a nice vibe.
This place is amazing!! I had a complimentary consult with Janet St Paul today and Our conversation was above and beyond a new hair style. Janet genuinely cares and looks at everything as a whole, your daily routines, maintenance from skin care, makeup etc. I was lucky enough to be able to get a haircut because of a last min client cancel and I was all over that!! Every member in the salon th
So happy with the way my Balayage turned out. Linnea did a great job and I've been getting nothing but compliments ever since!
It's a beautiful salon & I had a great experience getting recommendations for my hair type. They are friendly & knowledgeable.
Love that they have all the necessary info on their page and very responsive to messages. I’ll definitely try them out even though I didn’t get the chance during my short visit to Austin.
Really helpful page for me! Out of town and was trying to find a hair salon and the information on the page was great!
Blown away...The salon is elegant & beautiful with a relaxed comfortable personal feel. I never thought I would see a salon like this in Austin Texas. I am originally from LA and lived in New York for many years. Janet’s salon is by far the best I have experienced. The service was great from check to check out I felt uniquely taken care of even though the salon was busy. Parking was a little tric
I arrived from San Diego for a wedding. Prior to leaving I looked for and asked about Austin's recommended hair salons. All reviews and 4 suggestions led me to Janet St. Paul Studio. The reviews and suggestions were spot on. I called for an appointment for an updo and a makeup makeover. I talked with Beth who was gracious and helpful. She set everything up, following up with specifics in an
Amazing salon, people and love the new location! I went in for a cut and highlights and it looks fantastic! Love all the complements I have been getting. Highly-highly recommend!!!
From the moment I walked in until I left this salon was a great experience. Amie Romero corrected my hair color and added highlights. She topped it off with a great cut and style. My hair feels healthy and looks great. Thank You Amie! Highly recommend Amie and Janet St. Paul Studio.
This place is great as soon as you walk in, you feel welcomed, and genuinely appreciated as a customer by everyone. I don’t usually write reviews but I had to in this case because stylist Amie Romero did an amazing job. I have ridiculously straight hair and tons of bad experiences because of it,no one can cut my hair right! Amie nailed it. Even three weeks later it still looks great. Thank y’all
Amy did a fantastic job with both color and cut. In fact, she took extra time to make sure the color was perfect. Janet St. Paul Studio is lucky to have her!
Janet St. Paul is awesome. They worked with me to get my hair where I wanted it. When there was confusion, or a misunderstanding every person from the salon chipped in to help! The first visit I had with them, we didn't get my hair exactly where I wanted it. So we scheduled a second appointment and now my hair is amazing and exactly what I wanted it to be. They genuinely care about their customer
All the people at Janet St. Paul are just amazing. Thanks, Janet and Shannon and everyone for all you do.
Janet is amazing. She has a way of figuring out exactly what I want in my hairstyle even when I’m not sure what that is, and gives me a style that is easy for me to maintain, no matter the complexity of the cut. And it’s always enjoyable going to the salon, where it is relaxing and friendly.
So thrilled this level of Salon is in Austin! Moved here from CA and am thrilled with the talent and expertise Nicole brings to her clients . I’m so happy with my hair! Thank you Nicole !
Nicole is a true professional, she gets it when it comes to curly hait and I am thrilled she’s come to Austin!
I don’t believe my hair has ever been softer after highlights! Beautiful salon, lovely people! This is an Austin gem!
Top of the line!! I've been many places in Austin never experienced such an amazing haircut/color and service until I came here. Walked out 100% satisfied
Janet St. Paul is simply the best salon in Austin. Hair genius❤️😘
Janet is a genius and an artist! The products she recommends work wonders and her tips and tricks for easy styling are amazing for me and my quick paced lifestyle. Worth every penny!
To say Janet is a miracle worker would be an understatement. I happened upon her salon about two and a half years ago, when my hair was in its worst condition ever. Janet and I spoke at length over the phone before meeting in person, but I knew immediately she could be trusted and would rescue my hair. Janet is a great listener, and provides honest feedback, never leading me astray with how/what
Worth it. Period.
Janet is a "hair rescuer"....just last week I had personally ruined my hair cutting on it.....and she literally performed a miracle.....and did an "angular cut" (her words) and I LOVE IT! Thank you Janet St. Paul!!!!!!!
The best staff and performance I have ever seen at a hair salon since I moved in to Austin. Very friendly and professional on the world level. Sophisticated design and a great atmosphere. It was a pleasure to get my hair done in Janet St. Paul.
Janet, Beth and everyone at the salon are amazing. Every one of them. From the moment you walk in the door, you know you are in a special place. They listen, treat you well, and I have never been disappointed with any hair cut or color I have received. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure your experience is the absolute best it can be.
Highly skilled and knowledgeable staff in a lovely new location downtown. Professionally run, but still warm and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend the studio and have done so frequently.
Janet St. Paul Studio for Hair and Beauty is nothing short of AMAZING! For many years, I have struggled with finding a salon that is both great for my hair and for my soul! The staff at Janet St. Paul is talented, innovative, professional, and most of all very compassionate. I felt like family from the moment I walked through the door. Honestly, I was initially skeptical because of previous poor
Had my hair cut and colored by Whitney Schaaf and it was the best cut and color I've ever had! I'm a blonde and very picky about my highlights, but Whitney is a top notch stylist and I am lucky I found her!
I've been to many hair salons and "chop shops" over my 55+ years looking for someone who could consistently cut my hair so that is resembles something fashionable and not something you'd find in the worst cosmo school out there. It has been a long, scary road! Some of them actually get it right....once. The second time it already begins to fade and by the third time, I think they had simply gi
Super happy...got served a cappuccino in a beautiful antique cup, got treated like royalty. Great hair products and wonderful stylists.
I love this place! The best in Austin!
I lived in Dallas for 14 years and had the same colorist for much of that time. Since coming to Austin I have struggled to find someone. The head colorist at this salon, whose name escapes me right now, but she was voted best colorist in Austin in 2014, believe it. COMPLETELY amazing!!!!!! :)
Janet is the absolute best! I have been going to her for several years now. In fact, I've been relocated to Houston for work but I still make the drive to see her. My hair is naturally very unmanageable. It was kinky and frizzy in the worst way. I knew I wanted to get it straightened but after a few bad stylists, my hair was nearly fried. Once I found Janet my hair has completely changed. She has
I have been going to Janet for almost three years, and am so grateful I found her. After my first cut, people stopped me regularly to inquire who I was going to for my hair. Eventually, she began doing my color, and the same result followed. Now, I just keep her cards on me! Janet has an amazing gift for transforming hair, and my advice is to just trust her. That being said, she will never disreg
Janet is wonderful! She listens to what you want and your lifestyle, how much effort you want to put into styling, etc. and essentially just creates a haircut and style that just works. You will look amazing when you leave and be able to replicate it yourself! The salon is small and a warm, comfortable environment that's beautifully appointed. Highly recommend it!
Janet St Paul is nothing short of AMAZING!! I was referred to Janet after a haircut disaster, so I was reluctant to let anyone touch my hair. She competely transformed my hair and I will never allow anyone to cut my hair again. Ever. While the prices are more expensive than I previously paid, it is worth it because my haircut lasted months longer than it typically does. I have never been this
I feel so lucky to have found the Janet St. Paul Studio for Hair! This salon is by far the best in Austin. After receiving a traumatic haircut from a top ranked salon in Austin, I found Janet St. Paul when I was simply looking for a blow out to hide my bad haircut. I walked into the salon to inquire about appointments and the stylist Ashley saw my hair and immediately took me under her wing.
Shannon Briggs is an amazing hair artist. You can't go wrong with her, not to mention the fact that her personality is like a ray of sunshine.
I decided to treat myself to a really good haircut because I was going from long to short. Janet was great at consulting with me and describing things about cut, texture, color that made sense to me. I appreciated the time she took with me, and the cut is just right! Great scalp massage during the shampoo, too! A friend of mine told me today that she was staring at my hair, thinking "that sty
Janet St. Paul is a beautiful salon that I would recommend to anyone! Shannon has helped turn my once drab haircut into something amazing! I have been going to Shannon for a little more than three years, and do not see myself stopping anytime soon!
Janet St. Paul is the best hair stylist! Moving here from NYC and being very fussy with my hair- I will only use Janet as a stylist. My haircuts last a really long time, and the best part there is no windows of good hair or bad hair days, there are only "great" hair days. She knows how to work with your natural texture, color and hair style. She is great at doing my color as well-it always looks
