ORANGE SALON REVIEWS
Finally embraced my curls, and Heather gave me a terrific cut with a lot of helpful education along the way. Rocking big curls and a big smile now. Thanks Heather!
I love this salon and their new location is even better. Ruben has been the only person to ever put color in my hair. Trust him 100%. The first two visits I got a standard blonde balayage but this most recent time I wanted a change and totally trusted him with doing a rose gold ombré on my brunette head. And of course he totally pulled it off.
I had no idea this was known to be a curly hair expert salon. I was looking online to find someone, ANYONE, who had any experience at all cutting curly hair. I’ve tried many salons in south Austin and at all of them my curls were wet and stretched out before they were cut..and when it came to styling, my hair was covered in hair spray and scrunched like an 80’s rocker. Not at Orange Salon!!! First of all as soon as you walk in you’ll notice nearly every client there has curly hair! That’s how you know you’re in the right place. Elisio Vega as my stylist. A cute, sweet, young man who really took his time giving me step by step instructions on how to wash, dry, and style my hair (using deva curl products -but he didn’t push them on me). Elisio really took his time with my hair and meticulously cut individual curls to ensure I ended up with the shape I was looking for. I went from waist length hair to above the shoulder. I always slightly regret cutting my long hair whenever I get a cut, but not this time. I love my short hair even more! I’ll definitely be back. Elisio is the only one allowed to cut these curls!!!
Orange salon ROCKS!!!! Everyone is always so friendly, helpful and fun. The music rocks and you can sip on Orange bubbly water while you’re there! I have been going to Heather Barclay for 8 years and I cannot say enough great things about her! No stylist has EVER been able to nail my color (blond highlights) like Heather. I settled for less than what I loved for years until I came to Heather. I will not let ANYBODY else touch my color. Period. Everybody that works there is amazing though and they all have their own unique style and flair!
I just moved to Austin, TX from California and I had no idea where I was going to get my crazy curly hair cut. I was a little apprehensive because my hair can be hard to manage and as an African American woman it can be hard to find someone to tame my curly naturals. I found the Orange Salon on yelp, decided to give it a try, and Lord knows I am happy that I did! Heather is AMAZING! She first sat with me and gave me a full consultation to make sure that she understood exactly what I wanted. She then executed the look that I wanted beautifully. In addition, she also taught me some new techniques to achieve the voluminous look that I was going for. She knew so much about the deva curl line, and she was able to explain to me how each product works AND why. I had never had such a thorough lesson. I left the salon with a new cut, new color, and happy as a kid in a candy store. Plus the salon smells like oranges! lol I’m in love. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a curl doctor.
I’ve been going to Orange Salon for almost 2 years now. Heather Barclay Sanders is awesome! I live and work in San Antonio but make the drive to Austin just to get my hair styled by the talents of Heather. She always listens to what I want when I decide to make changes to what we have been doing. Never been disappointed! If you are looking for amazing hair, great experience and compliments, make Orange Salon your choice!
Finally! A salon that has stylists that can cut curly hair. It’s a serious struggle. But my stylist, Eliseo Vega knows how to make curls look awesome. He’s very knowledgeable and really takes pride in his work. He even gave me tips on how to style my hair at home so it’ll look just as good. This will be my place to go from now on.
Went in to get a chop by a Deva Curl certified stylist and had an amazing experience! My stylist Aneysa Moreno was very sweet and we communicated very well about what I wanted for my hair! She was very nice and accommodating, offering a seat for my mom and refreshments. I overall love the way it turned out and I’m so happy I came back to Orange Salon!
My stylist was Aneysa Moreno. She was amazing and did such a beautiful job on my long hair. She knew exactly what she was doing and took very good care of me. Offered me refreshments once I sat down. She walked me through everything she was about to put on my hair to achieve the perfect ombré. My hair ended up being FLAWLESS. Make sure to ask for Aneysa Moreno, she’s the only one I trust with my hair. Her main concern was to keep my hair as healthy as possible while also achieving the desired look I asked for. Needless to say she will be my permanent hair stylist in Austin.

I kept asking myself “Why did I wait so long to make this change?” I never cared for my curly hair, I never understood it. I’ve been wearing my hair curly the last 2 - 3 yrs but again didn’t really like it, didn’t know how to work with it . I never knew or learned how to care for my curls , how to condition it or simply how to get the very best from My hair. That is until I walked in Orange Salon and let Heather educate me: She was thoughtful and considerate to what I wanted my curls to be. I could tell Heather formatted a plan on how to out shape my curls before she even started cutting. The overall proof on how great my new curly hair looked was right after getting my new hair I went to Central Market and got 3 compliments by complete strangers. I can’t stop looking at myself. I have gorgeous beautiful healthy curls. Looking my best ever, thanks to Heather!
Chole did a great job with doing a balayage on my hair, just what I wanted! She was knowledgeable and friendly 😊 I think I found my new stylist!!
Heather and Chloe are hair masters!!! I went in not knowing how to get frizz free waves and with dark never dyed hair. I wanted a balayage and thankfully Heather will do her work until you are happy and it is just as you wanted! I am so happy with my new blondish balayage and frizz free waves. Heather and Chloe take the time to educate you on what they are doing and how to do it at home, they also explained every step along the way with coloring and styling. I am so glad I tried the Deva Cut and Orange Salon!
I've had unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember. I've not once felt beautiful with my natural hair until I got my hair cleansed and styled here. Anthony was amazing. He took me step by step on how to care for my curls and style them since I basically knew nothing.This is the only place that will touch my curls now. I'd highly recommend my curly friends to come here.
Heather is a master. I always leave looking fresh, with a color that pops and an edge cut - sure to please/would recommend!
