Great second experience

Kalea did a wonderful job keeping the length but adding some shape to my hair. She also have me plenty of tips on how to make my hair softer and shinier!




Kate did an amazing job on my layers & taught me the Deva Curl process. I finally found my salon and stylist!


Alex S


I am always so much more happier and relaxed when I get my done here! Kalea is amazing and does exactly what you want her to do to your hair. The Kevin Murphy products, that she uses, are the best products ever! Definitely go here!


Susannah Halsey

bang trim 

Kalea was quick, professional and delightful as always! I wouldn't go to anyone else for these bangs =)


Katy B


This is the first hair salon I went to more then once, and I will continue going as long as I live in Austin! Kalea is a fantastic hairdresser and super friendly person. I've never been happier with my haircut. What I love about her is that she also understands different preferences of customers and is ready to accommodate a natural no-poo user as well as fancy high-end products enthusiasts ;)



Kate is awesome

A buddy of mine recommended my the salon and I have to say that the visit was a pleasure! Kate was very helpful and since a very long time I am very happy with my haircut again! Thank you Kate. hopefully I will be back in Austin sometime soon!



Always wonderful!

I've been going to Kalea for awhile and every time my experience is awesome!! She really knows hair!!! She can do any color, cut, or style.


Cynthia R

Great advise and expert color and cut!

Kalia is very knowledgable about hair care and does a great job with color and cuts. I was recommended by a friend and it turns out that a few other friends also go to her. I am happy to recommend her to anyone. She will do a complimentary consultation so you can get a sense for what she does.


Maggie H

Kate is Great!

I went for my first time to Kalour Studios this weekend, and it was perfect! My previous hair place literally fried my hair, so needless to say I was very scared to let anyone color my roots for fear my hair would just fall out. Kate was awesome! She was so delicate with the process and explained everything to me so I wouldn't stress about it. By the time I was done I got so many compliments even a few "your hair looks like Marilyn Monroe's!" Def. recommended Kate to my friends!


Leslie L

Kate rocks!

Kate is the best ever! She is very professional and has years of experience. I always leave feeling better than when I walked in! I love my hair each time and receive so many compliments. She listens and gets it right the first time. I definetly recommend her to you and everyone you know. She has been doing my hair for over 20 years and I don't trust anyone else. It will be a sad day if I ever move!


Hunter S

Really happy

Kalea has been helping me navigate that awkward few months when you're growing your hair out long, and for the first time I've looked good in the process.


Andrea Loera

Kalea is AMAZING!

I found Kalour hair studios and Kalea after days of research; she had great reviews on her balayage skills so I decided to book an appointment! It’s amazing how good my hair felt afterwards! I have never ever received so many compliments as I have with this hair style and color! The whole experience was fantastic, I could not have asked for a better environment and Kalea was so patient and answered all the questions I had!



Curly Haircuts

It had never really occurred to me that there were places that specialized in cutting curly hair (although I'm sure they could cut any hair and do an amazing job) before I heard about Kalour from another curly-haired friend. Kalea did an amazing job and taught me a lot about how to take better care of my hair and what products to use that are specifically designed for it. The studio is also adorable. Definitely going back as soon as I need another cut!


Kendel J

Awesome Service

I started seeing Kalea after years of going to SuperCuts and confessed where I'd been going to get my hair cut... and asked her to help me define a style would work best for me - including my lifestyle. She listened to my limitations and the took me at face value who I said "I certainly don't know what would look best so I leave it up to you." As a guy who really doesn't have a clue what would work well for me, it was a relief to finally find a stylist I can trust to make me look great.


Jackie D

Kalea is awesome!

I always leave Kalour loving my hair! Kalea is always honest with what will work my hair and I love her for that. I have very curly hair with a mind of its own.



Highly recommend!

I had long hair and Kalea chopped it all off. I couldn't be happier with the results. She also totally nailed my balayage highlights; they look great. She really took her time to make sure everything about my cut and color was perfect. You can tell she enjoys her work, too, which is always nice!



Great experience!

When it comes to hair, I'm difficult. I am extremely attached & struggle constantly to find someone who actually listens to what I want done. I was long overdue for a cut, & was extremely weary about getting anything done in Austin. I absolutely loved Kalour! Kalea was wonderful - more than willing to cut my hair fabulously so my confidence in it would be revived, & also gave me plenty of tips & tricks to make my hair shine and bounce with all it's potential. I truly recommend this place!


Jennifer Lancon

I found my new home

Kalea is amazing. I went yesterday for the first time and was blown away by her talent and passion. She takes her time with you and explains everything she does!! I will definitely be back:)


Felicity M

Great up-style

Loved, loved my hairstyle - Kalea did a fun and stylish updo for a recent event. Everyone who saw it complimented me. And my hair was in great shape the next day b/c of the fantastic Kevin Murphy products she uses. Would def. recommend Kalea & Kalour!


Amy Lundell

Best hair cut/styling I've ever had!

Kalea is wonderful! It is so apparent that she is so passionate about what she does and it shows through her finished product. I highly recommend this talented and fun lady!



Great Hair

Wonderful service but it does come with a price, so if your prepared to pay then get the best color,cut, and style of your life!!



curly hair specialist

Kalea is the best curly hair specialist around. She and her staff have taught me a lot about how to take care of my hair at home to get the salon result.


Ben Colvin

I'm Spoiled

I am now official spoiled by Kalea's magical hands, which in two years, have giving me nothing less than perfection, happy haircut experiences............ and after having joyous pleasant conversations in a relaxed, positive atmosphere Kalea sends me on my way every time in style, with smiles, and of course with a good looking head of hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! p.s The additional hires there are very kind and they seem to smile a lot and that's always pleasant as opposed to frowning


Cassie Rubin

Awesome Balayage

Finally I have found a lady who knows her stuff! Super knowledgable but very relaxed. LOVED my hair!!


Luna Wood

Healthy curls

Kalea gave me a complementary deep conditioning treatment with my cute curly cut. I love my hair when she's worked her magic. Thanks Kalea!!


Donna D

Cut by Kate

Kate cut and styled my hair and I love it. It looked fabulous when I left the salon, but the real measure of a good cut for me is if it looks good when I work with it: and it does. Also, I loved the look of the minimalist decorating of the salon, very nice and comfortable. I will be back.



Simply the best

Listened to what I was trying to do. Exceeded my expectations. The best salon I've ever been to. Very very talented stylists!!




Always a great time and always an awesome hair cut!! I like that the studio is small because you always feel so welcomed.


Katy B


You can believe all the reviews you found! This salon is very nice and comfy, Kalea is a professional who cares and listens, she is amazing at what she does plus is easy to talk to. What I was amazed by is that she knows about the "no-poo" method and even uses products that are based on this idea. I got a beautiful haircut and will go back again and again! I've never went to the same salon twice before... My search for hairstylist is over!


Cristy B


I am new to Austin and spent some time online looking for a new hair salon. I stopped in to check out Kalour Hair Studios and instantly had a great feeling about it. Kalea was able to get me in the next day (lucky me) for a haircut and some new balayage highlights. She listened to my expectations and made terrific suggestions for how to care for my thin, straight hair. The cut and color are superb! I am thrilled to recommend Kalea.


Kristen O

Great Experience!

Kalea is very knowledgeable and somebody that you can trust. I learned so much about my hair and how to take care of it. The best part is for the first time ever I left the Salon feeling like I could re-create what Kalea did to my hair on my own. She gave me all the right tips to style my hair and bring out that curl without going to the Salon. I also tried balayage highlights and I was very impressed with how natural and rich in color they look. So happy to have found a Salon I can trust.


Amy V

Kalea's a Keeper!

Kalea has been patiently and cheerfully working with my ever-changing preferences since I found her in April '13. I am enormously appreciative of her expert opinion and tips, and for improving the look and condition of my hair from day one. She approaches each client with enthusiasm and a keen interest in doing exactly what works for them. It's never a one-size-fits-all with her. I gladly recommend her.


Alexandra S


Kalea is so awesome! My hair never holds curls but these curls last for my semi formal, then I slept on them, and they still looked really good in the morning! She rocks!!!


Brandi B

I will never go anywhere else!

Kalea is amazing! I've never had a hairstylist that knew what I wanted when I didn't even know! The drive from Round Rock is 100% worth it!!


Stacey Campbell

We LOVE Kalour hair studios!

Kalea has been our family stylist for over two years. My husband, son and I love what she does to keep us all groomed! With our variety of "hair issues," we really put her through the paces! Love her new glam and private studio... so relaxing, just beautiful!


Liz Stripe

Recent hair appt

I had my hair colored previously and it never felt healthy afterwards. I had my hair colored yesterday at kalour, my color is perfect and kalea did an amazing job styling it. I will never go back to my old place. Loved her and her gorgeous studio.


Lindsey Jackson

I'd give more stars if I could!

Kalea is sweet and funny and has some mad skills! I love my hair cut and have received lots of compliments!


Niko Wood

Teen Haircut

Thanks Kalea! I really like my haircut! It's so BOSS! Can't wait till I'm back at school and my friends see it.


Megan Gattis

Fantastic colorist and teacher

Kalea is the first stylist to really teach me about my hair and how to take care of it. She was so sweet and took a lot of time with me. My color is gorgeous, so natural looking and feels great. Highly recommend Kalea!


Lori Doyle

Kalea the Kalour Goddess

Kalea is awesome! She can do wonders with color and she helped me find out I have Type 2a/b hair! *


Elise G

Kalea is the best!

I have never liked my hair, as it is very curly and hard to deal with. She took her time with me, explained to me what I need to do to take care of my hair, got to know me personally, and was sooooo sweet and cute! I ended up absolutely LOVING my hair and I leave it down now - which I never did before. I recommend her to anyone - curly or straight haired - she knows what she is doing!!!!! KALEA IS THE BEST!!!!!


Taira Jordan

The best

Love the atmosphere and time spent on the right look. Kalea is the best at creating the perfect look for each individual.


Lauren Z

Count on Kate!

Kate is fantastic! She is a sweetheart who really listens and understands when you explain the look you are trying to achieve. She was my stylist at her previous salon, and now I've followed her to Kalour! I trust my hair to her any time I need it styled for an event, and I always receives compliments on my hair when she does it. If you're looking for a personable, highly talented, and creative stylist to take on your 'do, then Kate is the one for you!


Derek Cuellar

Great Experience!

I'm like a little kid when it comes to haircuts. I dread every second of it and avoid it as much as possible. But at Kalour I thoroughly enjoyed my haircut experience and can't wait to go back!


Luna Wood

Curly Haircut

Kalea Is amazing with my curly hair!! She's informative and educated when it comes to conditioning, treatment and even what type of brush I need to use. I love my new haircut! Thanks Kalea!!!


Kelly A

Kalea is the BEST hair stylist in Austin!

I've tried countless hairstylists in the last 13 years that just never quite got it right. A friend referred me to Kalea's old salon, Shine Salon, and she had stellar Yelp reviews so I booked her. The color was spot on and the haircut was EXACTLY what I wanted. BEST bang cut I've ever gotten and I was hooked after that. She opened her own salon, Kalour Hair Studios, which is only her so the environment is relaxing and feels exclusive. Did I mention Mimosa Saturday?! :)


Joanna K

Love my new hair cut!

I knew I wanted a change but not sure what that would look like. But Kalea knew exactly what to do and I love it!


Kristy Wisdom

Kalour Studios

Kalea created a welcoming and casual environment and I loved my hair cut. I'll definitely be coming back.




I just moved to Austin and was getting my haircut for my ID photo, so I was nervous about going somewhere new, but Kalea was wonderful! She welcomed me to the city, gave me tips on how to get healthier hair, listened to exactly what I wanted and made it happen! Love my haircut and got an amazing neck massage when she was washing my hair :)


Diane D
