Jessica just moved to Ann Kelso from Bella Salon. Much better location - just steps from all things cool in SOCO. Great parking garage just behind the salon on Elizabeth St. ...


This salon was recommended so I decided to try the "SPA" pedicure and manicure since I am expecting a baby. The "SPA" pedicure consisted of a tub of lukewarm water with me sitting...

Looking for your hairstylist? 11/10/2009

If you are looking for your hairstylist, good luck, I know all the stylist that were at Ann Kelso have been doing all they can to find their clients. Many of them are o facebook. If you are looking for Jessica, who recently left Bella Salon for Ann Kelso, I am now at Milk+Honey on 3rd street (236.1112) All my prices will be the same for all clients of my former salons, so just mention what salon you came from. I hope to see you soon. Cons: Evicted more

Terrible...don't go 10/27/2009

I had a terrible haircut here. Obviously you can't put hair back. Also, when I've tried contacting them about this, their phone message has been repeating that "they are closed at this time." This is during business hours..How can you run a business like this. I will not be going back and I urge any new customers to think twice about going here. It is not that fabulous for it's exorbitant prices. Not worth it! Pros: Good product lines, convenient location Cons: Over-avg pricing for under avg experience or expertise more

Pros: brilliant color Cons: none more

Perfect Salon and Spa experiences. 9/14/2009

Crystal rocks! I've been going to Ann Kelso salon for a while now, just getting my hair done, but recently I've had some skin issues and decided to branch out. Georgia was extremely knowledgeable and polite, she really helped me out and I rescheduled with her right away to keep my skin vibrant and healthy. more

Acupuncture works! 9/8/2009

After trying everything for my arthritis pain, I finally was talked into acupuncture by a friend of mine. I decided to see Dave at Ann Kelso and boy was he great! ! My first day was a total relief of my leg and headache pain. I encourage anyone to give acupuncture a try. It beats taking a prescription every day, knowing the meds really take care of the symptom not the actual problem. I am now able to function normally in my everyday life. more

Pam was incredible 9/8/2009

In my profession I am constantly meeting with clients and shaking hands and my wife would constantly cringe at the state of my hands and finally talked me into getting them done, and I'm glad she did! Being a man, I was very apprehensive about going to get my nails done, I didn't think that was a normal thing. Arriving at Ann Kelso Salon I noticed that there were a few other men getting services so this calmed me down a bit, but Pam, my nail technician really put my mind at ease. She helped me get over my fear of what is considered "normal". Pam informed me that a large percentage of her clientele is male and that it isn't out of the ordinary. She made a difference with the state of my hands, she cleaned them up and even told me ways I could keep them looking nice between appointments. I will be back, I'm proud to say that I'm a man that gets his nails done. more

Wonderful Experience 9/4/2009

I am new to Austin and was nervous about trying a new stylist, but Angela made all the difference. She greeted me right away and invited me back to her station for an in depth consultation. We went over any issues I was facing with my hair and what I was looking for in color. She was quick, but thorough and provided wonderful styling tips for me to help tame my unruly hair. I will definitely go back and see her again. more

Something has Changed -- Not for the Good! 7/1/2009

Let's just say.... I am done going to this salon/spa!! I have on more than one occasion showed up for my "confirmed" appointment to find out I was: 1) double booked the service, 2) my appointment was canceled or deleted from the system, or 3) my appointment was not the service I had booked. Ugh!! To top it off --- the ladies working the phones and front desk never have apologize or show any concern for the error or inconvenience. It is too bad. If I owned the salon I would be concerned. So, if you make an appointment, be sure to confirm it after they have.... Pros: Location Cons: Front Desk Service more

OMAR Makes Me Feel Good!! 6/20/2009

OMAR IS GREAT!!!! Everytime OMAR cuts my hair I feel like a new person and I love it. And thanks to OMAR my color is fixed;-) I will never let anyone but OMAR cut or color my hair again.. Cuz if I did I know I would just need OMAR to fix it.. Pros: OMAR!! oh and Parking (Nice out of the Sun) more

god example for bad customer service 5/27/2009

I called to make an appointment with a specific stylist. They didn't even acknowledge my request and then proceeded to tell me the name of another stylist and their availability. I once again repeated that I wanted a specific stylist and they told me that the soonest I could get in was wit hthe other stylist. I told them that I really didn't care if I had to wait for the other stylist I just wanted the other person. They said the person available was just as good. I decided that if they weren't even easy to deal with on the phone then I probably shouldn't get a hairstyle there Pros: expensive, location Cons: rudeness.. more

Great haircuts--Thanks Maya 5/13/2009

I've been seeing Maya for my haircuts for over a year now and have been so happy with her cuts. She does exactly what I ask her to do, is so nice and very professional. She also customized some extensions for me and I am so pleased with the results. Thank you, Maya. more

Meredith is GREAT! 10/9/2008

I have been going to Meredith for about 4yr. She's the Best. We always have alot to talk about and I really love the way she cuts my hair. I get compliments almost every day on how cute my hair is. I now have breast cancer and will have to change my next cut to a shave. We will have fun and she will make me feel comfortable. See u soon Meredith. Patricia Simmons more

Best Eyebrow Wax-Debbie 10/7/2008

I have been going to Debbie for about 4 years now and can't say I have ever been dissapointed. She is so personable and she really cares about her clients happiness. She shapes my eyebrows exactly how I want ever time and pays extra attention to the blonde hairs that are hard to get. Oh and I never break out with her. She is perfect. I have sent about 10 friends to her and all of them say she does an amazing job. Go see Debbie for perfect brows! more

**** DANNY, super stylist **** 9/6/2008

DANNY is the super best!!! I've been 'seeing' Danny for gosh 3 or 4 years?? HE is amazing!! His color is spot on and he will work with you on whatever your hair needs. When you meet Danny your usually greeted with that amazing warm smile of his. He takes you to his station and proceeds to make you his only priority while you are with him. He listens to what your thoughts are, your concerns and questions. Then tells you what he thinks, and works with you to get your desired look..... When I see Danny I get to spend 3-4 hours with him for a color, hi-lights and cut; followed by an amazing blo-dry and style that makes me feel sxy as heck! I love that. Anne Kelso did their part in getting ahold of Danny. So when you call ask for Danny! Great job Anne Kelso keep of the good work! more

Todd is amazing!! 8/3/2008

I just got a fantastic cut and highlight from Anne Kelso's newest stylist, Todd. He did an amazing job making me feel comfortable, gave me an incredible massage while shampooing, and was so much FUN to talk to. He took the time to explain all the products to me and made sure I knew how to style my great new cool cut when I got home. He made me laugh, was on time and foiled my hair faster than anybody! He has SO much experience, I'm glad I got to know him before he gets to be booked up all the time. Did I mention the highlights were the best I ever had?? Pros: Friendly, fast and FUN!!!! Cons: None that I saw... more

Excellent Environment High Energy Salon and Spa 7/18/2008

I stopped by Ann Kelso Salon for an emergency haircut and facial during a trip here from Colorado. My skin and hair always go crazy with the climate change. From the moment I walked in I was greeted like a friend by the front desk staff. They got me in on the same day in my desperation. Georgia gave an excellent hour long facial with delicious smelling product. She is warm, nurturing and made me totally comfortable. My haircut with Suzanne was perfect. Listened to all my concerns and helped me find product to tame the crazies. An overall excellent experience. Thanks for making a colorado girl comfortable in Texas! Pros: Same day booking, fantastic front desk and staff Cons: Not close enough to me! more
