DON'T COME HERE!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF THE HEADACHE!!!
Their new location is on 3126 N St Mary's St, San Antonio, TX 78212
I was charged $30 dollars for a consultation!!!!!!!!
THE WHOLE CONSULTATION WAS THE STAFF TRYING TO CONVINCE ME TO PAY CLOSE TO $500 DOLLARS WORTH OF HAIR STYLING SERVICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been to many hair salons all over the country, from California to Florida (including AVEDA hair salons) in the past for the same kind of hair care, and I'...view moreve never felt this feeling of uneasiness, and most of all I've never been charged half of $1000 for hair care.
They are going to try to tell you that it's so expensive because AVEDA is all natural. I've been to AVEDA salons in the past...never have I've been scammed like this.
My first impression when I walked in to Raw Hair Studio was the pretentious attitude of the staff. I felt an unnerving feeling because I felt that they were acting like this for a lack of something...to find out it was trustworthiness.
This is my first review on Yelp. I don't like to complain. In this case, I feel people need to be very aware of what they are dealing with before walking into this so called "gem."

So, just moved to San Antonio from Austin where I had a lot of artist to chose from.
I've tried many in this area and have been most excited about the care, touch, technique and percision These two ladies put into taking care of my hair, eyebrows and hands.
Anna takes great care to make sure i'm ecstatic about the way I look. ...view more
From my position I've seen very happy women working with Ashly.
you should try them. They are professional and very detailed.view less
Excellent salon, reasonable prices, great location - what more could you want? I've been quite a few times, and I've watched the stylists work, and they definitely know what they're doing. I don't believe the person who gave them one star - all the other reviews are so positive. Guess that person had a grudge or something. Raw is cosy, friendly, and comfortable, not at all like those big expensive salons where you pay through the nose to wait around and be impressed by the high end int...view moreerior design. At Raw I'm impressed by the good work.view less
I first wen to Raw after purchasing a Groupon for a pedicure. I was really pleased with the service--Ashley gave me the best pedicure I have ever had and when I messed up one of the nails, she happily repaired it the next day. That was a month ago, and the pedicure still looks good! Today, I went back for hair color and a cut. My color was a total mess, I had been coloring it myself and was trying to go to a lighter color, so I had various different shades. Ashely and Ana worked t...view moreogether over the course of 4 hours to strip out the old color, remove the red highlights and bring me to a more natural golden brown. It looks amazing! I cannot believe the change and have gotten a ton of compliments already. One thing I noticed that I really like compared to other salons I have been in is the degree of attention Ashely and Ana give their clients. In other places, it seems like they get bored with the client and are more interested in gossiping with one another. At Raw, the focus is entirely on the client. They checked in with me repeatedly to make sure they were doing what I wanted. It was a wonderful experience. I would recommend this place to anyone, especially those who have difficult color issues (or just want a great pedicure or hair cut!)view less
As a long time Aveda fan I was referred to Raw,when I called to make my appointment the stylist that had been suggested to me was no longer there...I decided to take a chance anyway. Big MISTAKE. I walked in and was impressed,cute place, great location! Unfortunately that was the only positive thing about my visit. When my stylist approached me she seemed very nervous. I just wanted a simple highlight and cut. My stylist seemed very unsure of what she was doing, and put my service on...view more hold several times while she questioned the only other stylist there. When she finally started my service she was shaking so bad I couldn't tell if it was nerves or some other ailment. Either way, it was very disconcerting. As the foils were Slowly put in, I was made aware she wasn't even using Aveda product! For a place that boasts Aveda, this was very disappointing. Buyer Beware, this is Not an Aveda Salon.The color was ok ,definitely not what I was expecting. it was kind of
spotty, and my layers were very uneven. Next time I will stick with Aveda Institute, it is just around the corner after all!view less
Love everything about Raw. Moved to San Antonio in January 2011 and luckily was referred to Anna right away . Its a bit of a drive for me but WORTH EVERY MILE! The atmosphere in the salon is relaxing and fun and I always feel like I have Anna's undivided attention when I'm there. Love the time she takes consulting, the head and hand massages, and the friendly conversation. Last visit we made some changes to my cut and added a few more layers--I loved it and got a number of complimen...view morets. Yesterday, we decided to change the color and it turned out amazing--a little darker with beautiful copper highlights. I am so pleased with how natural it looks. I trust Anna's expertise and have always been delighted with the results. Make an appointment with Anna and I guarantee you will go back again and again.view less
RAW is an adorable salon in a quaint unique building that all of San Antonio needs to know about! It is a welcoming and friendly salon, and you will feel like family as soon as you walk in the door.
Ashley has done both my hair and a pedicure and she is amazing!! Not only do I love my new color, but there was a never a second of that awkward interaction you so often feel with a hairstylist. She is extremely personal and will make you feel like a million bucks both inside and out...view more. She gave me exactly what I asked for with my color....made suggestions, but didn't try to talk me out of what I knew that I wanted! Love my hair and can't wait to go back.
If you book an appointment with Ashley, I swear...you will become a regular of hers! Thanks Ashley, can't wait to see you again for my hair and a pedicure!view less
I have lived in San Antonio most of my life and have always gone to the same person. I decided to try Raw and went to Ashley and I will be going to her from now on! She was AMAZING! Not only was she personable and so fun, but I haven't stopped getting compliments on my highlights! She takes her time and makes sure she does exactly what you wanted. I absolutely loved the studio and Ashley. Anna got to know me as well when I wasn't even her client! :) Great place, highly recommended!
Ashley started doing my nails and hair this past spring. I love her! She is so thoughtful and talented. The Raw studio is also such a pleasant and calming place. Lots of goodness there. You get a hand massage and the Aveda products are wonderful. I highly recommend them!
I have known Anna for years and she is always amazing to me. She has so much talent and vision in her little finger and always brings out the amazing you. She now has Aveda products, which is fabulouuuuuus! As soon as you walk into her hair studio Raw, you feel that tranquility that is who she is, which she also brings to her work. Her studio is both earthy retro and raw. And it is most definately an extension of her artistic flair and expression and goes beyond her obvious talent...view mores and expertise for your tresses. She gives you her all, and to her that is everything. And for me, that rocks the casbah. Never will there be another. I absolutely love the waterless pedicures by Ashley, it is all the rage and a very different experience than your regular spa pedi. And Anna's hair massages are the best I have ever had. I want to return for that alone. You will feel pampered, destressed, and love your new do. Anna is simply sophisticated and yet lovingly RAW. You will not be disappointed when you place your tresses in her hands.view less
