Having won many prestigious awards and gained an unparalleled clientele, Urban Betty has since doubled its size and expanded to 16 stations with a full staff of stylists, assistants, a salon coordinator, and a salon manager. Awards & Press The Austin Chronicle has awarded Urban Betty "Best Of" in the Salon category for 2008 and 2010. And Urban Betty was recently named one of the Top 200 Salons in the country for 2011 through 2014 by Salon Today magazine. The Salon is also the winner of Austin Citysearch 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 in the categories of haircut, highlights, blowout, hair color, hair extensions, and barber.

I had an awesome base color to start with, honestly. She sat in my chair with super subtle blonde highlights already so I just used #herringbone sections with a balayage technique to brighten her up around her face. #perfection⁣

Bobbin’ texture by @nina_styles13⁣

Short bob for this babe! I love playing with fine hair and finding what product/s works best for the client. This gal has precious fine hair but needed a little movement and texture. I paired the kerastase densifique mousse and the kerastase VIP Powder to create this look. It’s good stuff y’all!!! Looking for a new style this year? Give Urban Betty a call or DM me for openings! 😘😘⁣

FUN FACT: this balayage was mostly done in the dark with flashlights because of a temporary power outage! 😱🔦 by @juliashairdiary⁣

YALL. 🙌🔥⁣
Funny story, the power at the salon went out in the beginning of this balayage at like 7pm, so most of it was done using flashlights from our phones for light, thankful for my amazing co-workers and Rachel's strong arms 💪 😂⁣

Copper balayage by @_katiedoeshair⁣

I’m still gushing over the depth this canvas has. My guest has been wanting to experiment being a red head for quite some time now. In our consultation, I explained the commitment it is to be a red head and our other options we had. We decided to go down a route that will allow us to go back to a subtle canvas if we wanted to. ⁣
Balayaging panels allowed me to shift her natural base enough to give the warmth you’re seeing at her base. Then, the real star was #shadeseq. It gave us the reflection and sparkle that we were left with! ⁣

Smokey Magic 🔮by @_katiedoeshair •

Miss Lindsay came in with leftover temporary die that had faded green/blue. Her DREAM hair since I met her has always been a Smokey Lavender.
Our process started with babylights and tipping her ends out to try and work through as much of the discoloration as we could. Slowly but surely we lifted her to a pale yellow. Next, I wanted to make sure that we canceled and neutralized all of the green blue that was left over. I glossed her with @redken #shadeseq 09RB 06RB and Pastel Pink. This did everything and more that I could have wanted. Finally, we were able to end with this beautiful canvas. I used @pulpriothair Nevermore, Blush, And Clear for our final formula.

🚧IMPORTANT BLONDE PSA🚧 by Rachael Sproull. Read below 👇

For those of you wanting to go platinum in one visit- THIS is why I won’t do it!!! Sweet Angel came in to see me with very over processed hair. She was bleached in one day from her natural color to platinum. The little pieces on the top of her head are not layers... it’s breakage. For now, we are doing the CUTEST bob on her while she grows her hair back to virgin!! She is on a strict regimen of protein based products to really feed strength back to her hair. And I’m seeing her every 6 weeks for maintenance. For now, absolutely NO color is going on her hair until it grows out. Although we might get really excited to get someone as blonde as possible in one visit, unfortunately this is what happens when you push hair too far too fast. Those of you who know me know that I do my blondes slowly and I separate visits over months at a time to keep your hair in good standing. I am so thankful that I got to meet Angel and really get to know her well! She’s literally the most positive and sweet person and I’m so thankful she came to me for the healing process! Stay tuned with Angels journey! •
