I had my eyebrows waxed here about 3 weeks ago. I never get my eyebrows waxed, I usually do them myself but I thought I would get them touched up for a change. This place had good reviews on hair so I thought ok, I'll give it a try, why not!
The girl who did my eyebrows was new, so I'm not sure if I can say this refelects the company or not. All I know is one eyebrow was ridiculously larger than the other. She waxed them and then continued to pluck and pluck and pluck until there was barely anything left. Not to mention she cut my eyelid by pulling off the wax so I had scabs on my uneven eyebrows.
It was a disaster. They are just now growing back! Just be weary if you get your eyebrows waxed!

Lili has been doing my hair for over 2 years now and not only do i love it, but i get so many compliments i had to start carrying her card to give to people. I have literally had people stop me at the grocery store to ask me who does my hair. I will follow her anywhere. I really dig the new digs too. Hairy Situations is stylish and very laid back. If you are a student like me, you will love it.

My Story......I've been a client of Rebekah's for over 8 years and I'm fashionably late in writing this review. I reside in south eastern part of the United States. My salon contracts with Rebekah every 8 weeks to consult and cut a few selected clients hair. She has never missed her commitment to provide her services, consults and fly into our area for several days. In my area, she has waiting list for new clients and you are lucky if you are selected to be one of her clients. If you live in Austin and she has availability, I would make an appointment immediately. She is able to identify the different textures of hair, the characteristics of your face then designs a style/cut that really works for you and your personality. I tell her a few things I am looking for in my hair design and she takes it from there. I have never seen anyone leave that did not look less than FABULOUS after receiving services from Rebekah. Personally, I've always had the WOW factor when leave the salon. She's also a lot of fun and provides me with styling tips which I am easily able to duplicate myself. After I left the salon the first time Rebekah cut my hair, I was stopped twice in the first hour by people asking who your stylist is. My husband even commented how good my hair looks! He never notices anything. Thank you, Rebekah for your continued service to a southern hospitality state. >""""

Rhonda has cut my hair for almost 20 years. I have followed her everywhere. Obviously she does a GREAT job on my crazy hair. I don't even have to think about it. She cuts it so I don't have to do anything with my curly wild hair. I like Hairly Situations too...lots of things to do on Congress, wine while you wait, nice staff. I hope she doesn't move again.

nice, clean, trendy place.
- my true rave is about my stylist Rhonda Peters :)
I've entrusted Rhonda with my hair cut & color since 2006 and trust my hair ONLY to her. She fixes what I mess up by trying to do things myself, lol, and has given me exactly what I wanted when I ask for it. This includes highlights, lowlights, haircuts (long like the exact Jennifer Anistion cut and color & short cut like Victoria Beckham's).
Cut is about $50 - which I don't mind because she does such a good job I only have to go every few months, if not longer than that. Color (last time I had it done) was $80 partial & $100 full highlight. This includes up to 3 different colors (highlights & lowlights)!!! She can make them chunky or natural (I've had both done before & they look awesome!).
Bottom line: I always get compliments on my hair :)

Rhonda and I have been friends for a few years now. I thought going to her for haircuts would be fun since I know her. Well, on my way to my first haircut I realized how akward it would be if she didn't do a good job or if I didn't like the cut, and I started second guessing my decision to go to her. Thank God she is an incredible stylist. Not only do we have fun during my haircuts (she has a great sense of humor,) but she is so good at what she does! I have very flat hair but I don't like to spend time on it. Rhonda always makes sure I have a cut that I don't have to maintain or worry about. I will continue going to her as long as she's cutting hair!
I have been getting my hair cut, styled and colored by Rhonda Peters for almost 7 years. (as long as I have lived in Austin) She is AMAZING!!! and does the best highlights around.
I have naturally curly hair that is FULL of cowlicks.....she gives me the best cuts that are versitile......to wear curly or straight.
Not only is she good at what she does.....she is also has that beautiful southern charm and hospitality and GREAT sense of humor!! She is WONDERFUL!!!!
Joseph is the best. He has been doing me for years.... my hair and color that is!!!!!! He always knows what looks best on me. And will tell me the truth if I want to attempt something too crazy. He will offer solutions and suggestions while listening to what I am trying to achieve. He is awesome with color and able to cut and style my difficult natural curly hair. Those of you with frizzy curly hair can relate. I live in San Antonio but make the trip to Austin with no problem. He is so worth the drive.
Most of my life I've hopped from one stylist to another, but I've been so happy with Rhonda Peters' cuts that I've stayed with her for a few years now.
Rhonda always listens to my requests but also comes up with great cuts even if I can't make up my mind. I like low-maintenance, and she respects that and gives me cuts that look good without a lot of styling. And they grow out well too.
I just followed Rhonda to Hairy Situations, and it's a fun South Congress environment with convenient hours and great amenities like accessible parking and even wine while you wait!

Just stopped in the other night late when every one was about to leave and Jessica said she would stay late to do my hair she was so nice and my hair looked so great when i left. How often does some one stay late for some one they don't even know. I was so happy with my cut and how it looked. i would highly recommend Jessica and hairy situations to everyone.

The salon itself has a great atmosphere. The people there are down to earth and friendly. Ray Ramos has been my hair stylist for 3 years now and never had a complaint. Any hair style you want he can do. You will leave the salon with nice hair and no complaints.

I had a great experience at Hairy Situations Salon yesterday! I have problem hair (super fine but thick, thick, thick) and have always had a hard time finding someone that can work with it. Rachel was able make it look great and let me know what products would work best for what I want. Highly recommended.

Ann Shackelford, for the last 7 years, consistently doing kinda super color, cuts, and awesome up do's for me. I have followed her to her different shops, and really like her most current spot at Fringe Salon. My long thick locks only deserve the best. :0) Keep up the good work Ann!

I was first recommended to see Anne back NINE years ago. She fixed my awful coloring and created a beautiful color for me and will not steer me in a wrong direction. I'll ask her for some colors or styles that interest me, and she will listen and coach me on what would be best for my face shape and skin tone. Each year we change up the style ,and I'm always happy. With this LONG and THICK hair I don't trust anyone else! She can turn my lion's mane into a smooth and silky designer look. I always marvel at her work. I've faithfully followed her for all these years, and now she's even closer to me....check her out at Fringe Salon.
Thanks again for a job well done Anne!

I've been going to Johanna for over a year and I must say that I always leave more than satisfied. I began going to her after cutting my hair very short and damaging it with repeat coloring. It was completely fired and over-processed but thanks to Johanna, my hair is healthy and growing beautifully. She respects my wants and opinions while always keeping the health of my hair in mind. I completely trust her. I think she's AMAZING and would recommend her to anyone. Not only was Johnanna great but the receptionist were great as well. I have a terrible habit of forgetting my appointment times and really appreciated the appointment reminder I received from the receptionist the night before. They were really sweet and very attentive.
