Shear Envy Salon’s trio of trained stylists transforms untamed tresses into smooth 'dos during Brazilian blowout treatments. During the eight-step, roughly 90-minute process, nimble hands apply shampoos, solutions, and serums designed to coat the hair shaft in keratin proteins, smoothing disheveled strands without exposure to jazz sax solos. A final blow-dry seals the stylist’s lock-straightening in place for 10–12 weeks. Though Brazilian blowouts can often render wavy hair stick-straight, the treatment will allow curly hair to keep some of its curvature, ensuring that stray strands can still function as corkscrew stand-ins during hard-up winetastings.
At Onyx Salon, a talented staff of stylists and aestheticians renovate women's and men's faces, nails, bodies, and ?dos with masterfully executed services.

Brow and facial waxes de-fuzz mugs for professional makeup applications, and spray tans prep bodies for the beach or provide camouflage for pilfered Olympic gold medals. In addition to their regular beauty-boosting appointments, the stylists host glamour parties, where they gussy up guests with eye-catching hair and makeup before releasing them into the wild for bachelorette parties and nights on the town.
Scott Sachnoff's passion for hair color began 20 years ago in Santa Barbara, California, where he began his career by assisting a head colorist for Schwarzkopf. It took a move to New York City to fully catapult him into the high-fashion world of hairstyling, however, and a stint spent training with Redken soon found him ascending to assume the title of Master Hair Colorist. While his time in the Big Apple earned him a loyal customer base, Scott soon caught the traveling bug again, relocating this time to Texas to establish his own salon and a reputation among the state's politicians, professionals, and celebrity line dancers. Today, he credits Austin's vibrant streets and nightlife with inspiring his signature cut and color treatments, which he creates using low-ammonia formulas by Italian color line Framesi.
