Editorial review from Citysearch 3/24/2014

Monica is the best hair stylist ever! Took me a very long time to find the best in Austin, having gone through a ton of places, many very, much more expensive. Not that the previous experiences at other places were bad... they were just not exactly what I wanted. Every time I leave Monica's appointment it is a celebration of great look and great mood, cannot stop looking at myself in the mirror, get so many compliments on my hair constantly (even when the cut is about to get refreshed and I did not really do my hair), literally get stopped in the stores with questions where I had it done and many of those by men for their women:). Besides the wonderful atmosphere, superb stylist skills, products and pace of the appointment, I always get the color, cut and the length exactly as I want it (many stylists before left the hair much longer than I wanted, being afraid to overdo, I guess). And sometimes I get tired of style and ask for advice and it is always right on. My best friend and an award winning stylist from Europe who used to do my hair back in the day and who now lives and works in London keeps making sure I never even think of going anywhere else to do my hair, but Monica, my cuts and color always get stunning compliments:) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! I hope Monica never moves from Austin or I will have to move wherever she is:) more

Monica is the very best stylist in Austin!!! 8/6/2010

Monica has been my hair stylist for over three years now and I wouldn't trade her for the world. Not only is she very down to earth and personable, she also has an in depth knowledge of hair and various hair treatments. Her very skilled hands will give you the perfect cut. I have never felt so in love with my own hair and constantly am complimented about it. It is not only healthier and shinier but, she manages to create the perfect cut for my face. I have never been disappointed by her in all these years and would never try another stylist again. She has the best work ethic and goes the extra length to make sure her customers are 100% satisfied. I've recommended her to all my friends and family. And without hesitation am recommending her to all who read this review....If you are living in Austin, you must give Monica a try. You will not be disappointed. more

Best for Brazilian Hair Straightening! 7/26/2010

Thank you so much for giving my hair a complete makeover with the Brazilian Keratin Treatment. I am absolutely in awe of how soft and shiny my hair is. I also love that my once very course curly hair that I dreaded combing has been transformed into silky large wavy tendrils. I had tiny curls but I did not want to get a 'stick straight' hair transformation. This treatment was perfect and well worth the investment. I can wear my hair wavy and down or straighten it with a flat iron in less then half the time it previously took! Before, I could not wear my curly hair down without having a huge helmet hair style that was not flattering. Also I want to add that these Keratin treatments are a remarkable breakthrough from the days of harsh stinky relaxers that made your hair board straight and would not enable the hair to have natural movement (I tried many of them back in the day.) Pros: Transformation from unruly dry curls to soft beautiful hair more

Monica is Fantastic! 7/25/2010

I am an African American woman with natural hair (no chemicals). I went to Monica for a Keratin treatment. I was looking to loosen my natural curl and cut down on frizz without using chemicals. From the moment that I contacted Monica, she was very professional and explained what I could expect from the treatment. I was super excited about my appointment, but nervous that Monica may not be able to handle my thick and kinky natural hair. Monica handled my hair beautifully. From start to finish, Monica knew exactly how to work with my hair. The result was a silky, shiny, manageable hair of head. Thank you Monica! Pros: Fast, Professional, Amazing Hair Skills more

Big Salon Talent without the pretention! 7/22/2010

I found Monica a short time after I had just moved here. I was desperately seeking relaxing for my curly, now frizzy red hair. I wanted to try thermal reconditioning and thought perhaps in the city I would have a better experience. Then I found Monica's Marbella website. I could tell from all of the info on the site that she was no fledgling stylist. I got a good feeling about her so I called to make an appointment. I was a bit shocked that I had to wait almost a month for the appointment but I really wanted this done so I waited. My appointment time arrived and I upon entering the hole in the wall shop I was nervous, but Monica came out right away and greeted me, and we got to work. We talked about the process, how many she had done and she was just so confidant and relaxed that I felt the same. As this is a long process I wondered if there would be 3 hours of awkward silences. NO WAY! We told each other life stories, compared movie likes, talked parenting, husbands and before I knew hair was straight, silky and I was ecstatic! Monica's hands are like little hair surgeons. She works effortlessly and her personality makes you glad to be there. This is an expensive service but I really felt I got my money's worth and found a terrific stylist to boot. I just had my second thermal reconditioning treatment today. It was just like we had seen each other the week before and not 10 months ago. She does such a good job that I won't need the service again for many months. Perhaps I'll go for a cut so I don't have to wait so long!! Pros: no wait, pleasant conversation, efficient work more

The Best in Austin 12/31/2009

It was by sheer luck alone that I stumbled into Monica's salon 6 years ago when I moved to Austin. At the time I was incredibly nervous about putting my delicate and perfectly blonde locks into the hands of someone new. However, Monica is a hair care genius! She matched the color perfectly on my first visit and has been taking excellent care of my hair ever since. Great conversation and great prices make my visits even more enjoyable and to top it all off she is speedy - so I'm back to work in a flash. Girls, if you're looking for great stylist with a no non-sense approach to great hair - you should definitely make an appointment with Monica right away! Pros: Relaxing, Professional, Great Results more

The Keratin Smoothing Complex is Awesome! 12/1/2009

I had read all of these great reviews about Monica at Marbella Hair Studio regarding the Yuko permanent hair straightening, but I was a little disappointed that my hair was not healthy enough for the process. Luckily, Monica suggested the Keratin Smoothing Complex (same as the Brazilian Blowout) as an alternate treatment which would not only take the kinks out of my natural curls, but would actually strengthen my hair while leaving it feeling silky. The results are awesome! Even two weeks later, my hair is still so soft, smooth and manageable. Thank you so much Monica. Pros: Results, Cost more

Truly a Great Stylist! 8/31/2009

I have lived in thirteen different cities and I have always said that one of the most difficult things about a move is finding a new stylist! When I first came to Austin I tried one salon and went 5-6 times but it seemed no matter what I said or did, each cut was worse than the last. A friend recommended Monica and I have been her client ever since. She is extremely professional with an ability to hear what her clients want and translate that into a really good haircut. I appreciate that she is prompt with her appointment times as well as responding quickly to my calls for appointments. I am delighted that in Austin I have finally found a really great stylist! Pros: Professional, Prompt, Friendly Cons: N/A more

Always Pleasee with the Results 8/31/2009

My hair is very important to me as I have to see Monica every 4 weeks as I have been blessed with gray hair. Monica has done a wonderful job with my hair color and hair cut. She is not only an awesome hair dresser, but is a great person to talk to. We are both working moms and like to compare our boy?s stories. She is very easy going and always listens to my concerns with my hair. She is very straight forward and I really like that. I have always been happy with my hair and I love her hours. Pros: Results, Conversation, Hours of Service more

Relaxing Visits 8/18/2009

Monica has been my personal beauty advisor for several years. I've done my aging gracefully with her intuitive guidance. This being said, I'll explain. After years of coloring, I started noticing those""silver strands"" in my hair. I liked what I saw but....... Monica helped me thru those long months of out-growth with patience and a slight touch up or two. She seems to have an innate knowledge of color and style, not to mention the wonderful head massage while shampooing. The salon is always clean and very organized. Monica, herself, is a lovely, professional person. I thoroughly enjoy my visits. Pros: Wonderful Colorist, Relaxing Atmosphere more

Always Great Results 8/18/2009

Monica has been doing my highlights for years. She does a great job and is reasonably priced. I use email to make my appointments--which I love. She always works with my schedule which is not easy since I am a flight attendant. On top of all of that, she is easy to talk to, so time just flies by when I'm there! Pros: Great atmosphere, flexible more

Worth the Trip! 6/10/2009

I randomly found Monica through an internet search after moving to Austin. Since then, I have never visited another salon! Monica's work is always impeccable and above reproach. I leave feeling absolutely satisfied. After four years of faithfully going to Monica for everything, I moved to Lubbock. I still, however, wait until I visit Austin to have my hair cut and styled. I couldn't imagine going to anyone else! Pros: Results, Service, Price more

Great hair, Great price! 2/14/2009

I found out about Monica through a friend at work whose hair always looks great. I have thin, fine hair and have had a terrible time finding someone who can cut it to where it looks nice and easy to fix at 5:00a.m. Monica has done a great job with my hair and does not charge a fortune like everyone else. She is great to talk to and always on time. more

Thanks for the recommendations 10/13/2008

I found Monica through these great reviews of her on CitySearch, and she lived up to her stellar reputation. Got fabulous highlights, a nice cut, and very friendly service. more

Monica is fantastic! 4/21/2008

Monica is fantastic with cuts and color / highlights. The colors are vibrant, shiny and they blend so well. I'm always thrilled with the results. Her rates are really reasonable and that allows me to maintain highlights w/o going broke. I followed Monica from her previous salon and would follower her if she moves again - she's that good! Oh - all this and she's really sweet and funny. It's like hanging out with a great girlfriend - plus I get my hair refeshed! more

OMG - Miracle Maker Monica 3/28/2008

Where do I begin. I have been color treating my hair for ever and so my hair was way over processed. When I came to Monica over a year ago, my hair was a serious mess. Monica not only treated and repaired my hair, she helps me maintain the most beautiful color(s)! I love my hair foiled with multiple colors and she does a fantastic amazing job. Thank you Monica! Sincerely . . . Carolyn Pros: All services are perfectly and precisely handled. Location and parking are perfect too. Cons: Call ahead! more

Awesome Hair Dresser 3/17/2008

If you are looking for a hair dresser with creative ideas, great hours, awesome personality then Monica is the girl for you. I myself am very picky about my hair as my color usually turns black if left on too long. Monica does an excellent job and really listens to what you want and not what she wants. Give her a try and I promise you will not be disappointed. Pros: Service, Results, Price more

Best Ever 5/23/2007
