Let me preface by saying that I have gone to the same guy for my hair for over 10 years. I moved to Austin over a year ago and have been putting off finding someone new. I've been emotionally scarred in the past so this was no small feat. I furiously did research and I came across Michelle at BOB Salon, and I am so happy I found her! She is truly AMAZING! The consultation before we started put me completely at ease. She intently listened to what I wanted and then asked me asked a lot of questions to make sure we were both on the same page. If you've ever left somewhere hating your hair, you know how important it is that you feel like you're being understood, and she definitely made sure of that.
Getting the right blonde is serious business and she freaking NAILED IT! She did a heavy blonde highlight and then also brought up my base color/roots to a lighter shade, so my hair has beautiful dimension. My highlights look phenomenal and the cut is great, too. She totally exceeded my expectations, and I can't even express how much I love it! All the hearts.
If you are looking for a true blonde expert, are looking for someone new after moving, or if you're just looking for an amazing and talented person for your luscious locks, I would recommend Michelle a million times. I am so relieved and so thankful to have found her. I can't wait to go back for more of her blonde magic!
PS I have raved about Michelle, but I also loved the atmosphere of BOB Salon. It's a cool, non-pretentious space. They offered me a beverage as soon as I walked in and made me feel right at home. Thank goodness I've found my "home" hair salon in Austin!
This is a long overdue review, but I've been going to Michelle for over 2 years now and can't say enough great things about her. She is the queen of blondes!!! So personable, accommodating and professional. Highly recommend for any of you blondes looking for that perfect color!!!
