Haircut in Zilker

Set along a happening stretch of South Lamar in Austin, Topaz Salon is a cool, fun salon that doesn’t skew too far into hipster territory. Its décor and ambience is stylish and modern, but with enough classic touches to stay grounded and approachable to anyone just walking in. Concrete floors, warm-colored walls and clean, spacious stations make customers feel at home, and little touches like complimentary beer or mimosas and use of an iPad while you wait keep customers coming back in droves. Despite the open space, both men and women feel a touch of privacy in the chair during their cut, color, straightening, waxing or hair extensions.

James Strife began his hair career by apprenticing at a Dallas salon dubbed one of America's Top 100 by Elle magazine. After getting certified in cutting and coloring hair, his curriculum vitae expanded to include styling hair for Oscar de la Renta runway shows and for TV shows such as Made. Now Strife brings his experience to his own salon, where men and women can get their hair cut, enhanced with highlights and toner, or made glamorous with balayage streaks or smoothing Brazilian blowouts.

Jodi Holtz, the owner of The Waxing Studio, has over 20 years of experience, and she imparts her wisdom by personally training all of the staff at the locally owned salon. This crew has performed more than 200,000 depilatory treatments since the studio's founding in 2006, using a custom-made organic wax that leaves neither sticky residue nor glitter deposits behind. They wax nearly any area of men's and women's anatomy during sessions that last only about 15 minutes.

Complimentary cups of tea and coffee greet clients as they enter Benjamin Beau Salon, a salon staffed by artful stylists versed in cuts and color. Following in-depth consultations, stylists escort patrons to the Color Bar, where they mix hues on the spot. Across the way, in the warmly lit Wash House, staff members conduct shampoo and conditioning sessions supplemented with head, neck, and shoulder massages; gentlemen receive these before and after their cut. In the main space, comprehensive cuts commence in front of blue-framed mirrors as a stylist or Beau himself recommends hair products that best suit each guest’s style and spirit animal.

Julie Ton approaches skin care like a scientist. She knows that the health of skin is subject to both internal and external factors alike, and so she works with clients to identify and address the factors in their own lives. Going beyond the scope of a typical aesthetician, Julie pairs every facial with plenty of conversation, as she both consults with, and educates, the client in her care. Once she identifies the lifestyle and genetic factors influencing a guests' skin health, including sleeping habits, daily water consumption, and propensity for wearing Groucho glasses, she's able to tailor her services and recommendations. She also offers guidance on how to maintain that post-facial glow. In addition to facials, microdermabrasions, peels, and other pore-pleasing treatments, Julie waxes away unwanted hair and applies makeup.

Located along the west side of South First, it can be easy to confuse Salon Sovay for someone’s home. In fact, the salon has been converted from a house, and one of the white exterior walls is covered by a mural portraying Farrah Fawcett surrounded by several birds. In the entrance waiting room, the sun shines through the large windows, keeping the leather couches warm. Independent stylists work on hair, eyelashes, nails and waxing in the salon’s various rooms, while a metal and glass case and wooden furniture holds jewelry and products. Watercolor and themed artwork hang from the walls, and a second Farrah Fawcett portrait makes an appearance near the back of the salon.
