I was headed to Austin and was in need of a revival, a look revival, a me revival. It was my 50th birthday and I definitly wanted an experience to kick off yet another chapter in my life. A salon savvy friend of mine recommended Jackson Ruiz (an Aveda salon). I made an appointment for a cut and color, but got so much more! When I arrived I was taken to my colorist, Todd, who asked me a number of questions to get a feel for what I was looking for. I needed something that would require less maintenance, but would still be oustanding. She brought out the samples and recommended that I go darker (closer to my natural color) adding highlights of a softer blonde and red, which would define the frame my face more and acccentuate my eyes. I also met with my stylist , Charles, who spoke to me about what my goa was in a cut. Sassie, soft, fun, professional. A tall order, but I need versatillity to suit my lifestyle and personality. I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome! My color is perfect for my skin color and green eyes and my cut is everything I ask for. Did I mention that the shampoo was an experience in itself , relaxing and invigerating all in one, I got a wonderful hand massage during my cut , and was served some very refreshing fruit infused water. I have read other reviews on Jackson Ruiz, mentioning an ""assembly line"" feeling. Yes, many people service you in this salon - all specializing in their field. I have no issue with one who is a expert in color do what they are best at, then have another whose expertise is styling do my cut. The experience was so refreshing that I scheduled a facial and massage for the next day. Needless to say this was yet another wonderful experience. My facial had my skin feeling fresh & beaming and the massage was the BEST. They even refreshed my makeup afterward. No doubt the goal of this salon is to make you feel special. I left relaxed and feeling beautiful. Jackson Ruiz, Thank You! Revival accomplished!
