I went in with dark brown hair and came out as a blonde exactly the way I imagined. Lindsey Travis was my stylist and the girl knows what she's doing. Good conversations, people, and atmosphere. I felt like a hair model when I walked out of that place and being on South Congress put and little more getty'up in my strut.

Several friends recommended Wet Salon to me, and specifically Jessica. My first appointment I brought in a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like and Jessica made it happen. Seriously, the best haircut I have ever had. I'll be back.....
Thank you for a great haircut. I love it!

I joined Citysearch just so I could write this review of Ruby Martin at Wet Salon. She just gave my a dynamite haircut!! She's an artist who knows what looks great on you. I just told her to do her magic, and poof! thirty minutes later I looked fabulous. She's also sweet and funny and not one of those annoyingly arrogant stylists who make you feel like they're gracing you with their greatness. Ruby's down to earth, friendly, and super talented. five stars.

The headline says it all. I have been visiting Wet for close to 3 years, since moving from Chicago. It is friendly, non-pretentious, well-priced, and vibrant. The stylists do not keep you waiting, the salon is clean and wonderfully eclectic, and moreover, you will be more than satisfied with your hair. I frequently visit Wet for blow-outs as well as regular trims and highlights. I have not been disappointed. Owners Eric and Jimmy have created an oasis that is calming, accessible, and filled with professionalism mixed with cutting-edge technique and creativity. Many times, I have needed to be fit in at the last minute, and they have ALWAYS accommodated my request with smiles and the type of precise work that I typically don't find here in Austin. I wish I could have Eric and Jimmy teach every salon in this town how to manage their shop and moreover, client relations. I adore Wet...I am convinced this is the best salon in ATX. I was fortunate to be lucky on the first try.

Wet Salon is a grass-roots salon – truly Austin - but more like ""home"" - spun from unbelievably great people (Jimmy Haddox and Eric Massey) who have had a great friendship with one another for many years and were able to accomplish growing an enormously out-of-the box creative business and made it work. They were unafraid to take a dream and make it into a masterpiece. The salon is comprised of wonderfully artistic and creative individuals with huge hearts and unbridled talent, who a statement with each piece of work they accomplish. They make it happen for every individual who happens their way. Each one of them are AMAZING! Jimmy is totally over the top with creatiion and color!
Jimmy never ceases to amaze me with his innovative ideas and consistency in striving to give me everything I want. He provides ideas and solutions through wisdom for any problems I may be experiencing - even after 17 years. Jimmy is fabulous! Every time is like the first time - only better - and we create something new with each visit.
Both Jimmy, Eric and their entire team of accomplished stylist provide an experience you will not forget and will want to go back for more. The talent in this salon is overflowing, customer service is outstanding, and, the pricing is very competitive. I can assure you – it is worth every penny…. and then some...
Wet Salon is truly the best thing that has happened to me and to Austin. Sharon Brumley, Austin, Tx

Wet Salon is more than a ""Salon.""
Their team are more than simply ""stylists.""
Wet Salon is more like a funky clubhouse for a diverse group of people (clients and staff) who truly appreciate quality, creativity, and lively social interaction.
Jimmy Haddox, a founder and co-owner, has been cutting my hair for over a decade. Not only does Jimmy do a fantastic job with a pretty challenging head of ""man-hair,"" Jimmy, his business partner Eric Massey and many others at Wet have become good friends over the years.
I live in Dripping Springs. It's not always convenient for me to go to South Congress for a hair cut; but, it's definitely worth it for me!
My experiences with Wet Salon have always been extremely positive. It's a treat for me to come see my friends at Wet, enjoy a nice change of scenery, RELAX, have a lot of fun, get a great haircut, etc.

Curly Hair + Austin Humidity= Disaster
Enter Jimmy at WET and I have a great hair day every day (well almost--sometimes I mess it up). Jimmy is creative and talented... and makes me laugh when he is styling. WET is a comfortable salon where everyone is casual and friendly. I always leave the salon felling much better than when I went in

Mark was my stylist. Every time he cuts my hair, it is the best hair cut i have ever gotten. i tell him what i want, and he always delivers. He is also very nice and a pleasure to talk to. In fact, i think every one there is nice. it is a very friendly laid back atmosphere. They dont have techno music blaring, no fashion show network on a TV, no florecent lights. i feel very calm and relaxed and most importantly, i always get the best haircut. Its a little pricey, yes, but its worth it. my hair was long, i hadn't gotten it cut in like two years and i got it cut short. It was $60 before tip. Pricey, yes, but like i said, IT'S WORTH IT!! I mean face it, you're going to have to pay money for a good, stylish haircut, so you might as well come here. And i think depending on what kind of hair cut you get, he might give you a free trim. at least that's what he told me.
