Hair Luvin' 9/13/2011

I seriously had no clue what it meant to get a ""GOOD"" haircut until I went to Anthony. I decided to go from super long to super short and it was like the lady cut it with a butcher. So I went to Anthony, due to good reviews from a friend, to get it fixed. Possibly the best decision of my life! I seriously have had at least 15 people ask me who cut my hair and when I left his chair that day I felt pretty again. I know it sounds shallow, but you're hair is VERY important...and he understood that.\r \r Took his time, did an awesome job...and just an AWESOME person in general! He even called me a week later to check up on how I was feeling about my cut!\r \r I would recommend Anthony's hair luvin' to any and everyone!! more

Amazing hair cut! 7/19/2011

Sovay did a great job cutting my long, thick hair! I cn't stop looking in the mirror. Super cute salon, friendly people. more

Sovay is an awesome stylist & person! 3/26/2011

I went in to see Sovay to get a haircut about 2 week ends ago--I have extremely long and thick hair, and needed someone who appreciated that instead of dreading it. Before I made an appointment, we spoke on the phone about my hair length, texture, and exactly what I wanted and she actually seemed excited to cut my long, thick hair. I went the following weekend and immediately connected with Sovay as a stylist and as a person. She is a perfectionist, and will not let the client walk out of her salon without being 100% completely satisfied--and I definitely was. Not only did I get an amazing cut and style, but I felt very comfortable talking to her from the beginning. I will be back soon for another hair cut very soon! more

Charlie Hodges @ Sovay 1/10/2011

I was referred to Charlie by a very good guy friend that likes a little bit of an edgy cut. I have a 12 yr old son that I have not been able to get his hair cut the way he likes it and that looks like it should. Keep in mind that i have been in the industry as a manicurist/owner of a full service salon for 16 years. Tried Charlie and ablsolutely loved him!! SO i decided to step out and actually pay to have my hair done after 16 years.....and it is worth EVERY penny! Lastly...Charlie uses a line Moroccanoil..that is the BEST!!!! Smells wonderful!!! more

Charlie at Sovay 1/10/2011

I've been going to Charlie Hodges there for about 2 years and he's great. Very professional but cool at the same time and always works with me on different cuts and looks. Highly recommend checking out this salon. more


The best in town! Highly recommended for anyone that is looking for a stylist with extensive experience, professionalism and for a good price! more

Charlie Hodges 1/9/2011

Charlie Hodges is awesome! I will never go anywhere else to get my hair cut. I recommend him to everyone I see. more

Charlie Hodges is excellent 1/9/2011

Charlie knows just what I want and need. He makes me look and feel beautiful on my color and long, curly hair. He's the best! He also has great discounts that help the pocketbook! Thanks, Charlie! You're the best! more

Charlie Hodges is awesome 1/8/2011

Charlie Hodges is a excellent colorist and hair stylist. Take your hair to Charlie and it will turn out great! more


I have been going to charlie for about 4 years now. He does my cut and color. I have tried every color under the sun and my hair has always turned out great. He is also all about the health of your hair. If you want an amazing hair artist go see charlie. You can call his wife Niki for an appt at 609-9369. more

Great company and cut! 11/27/2010

Sovay is such a unique & interesting person and on top of that does a great job cutting hair. She takes the time to listen to the client to figure out what they want and what would work best with their hair texture and styling habits. She offers a quality product at a fair price, and I can't wait for her to expand her female beautification empire :) more

Sovay is awesome! Love my hair! 11/19/2010

Sovay is an amazing colorist and stylist ! Love what she does with my hair!! She really listens and has great ideas. I used to dread haircuts before Sovay, now it's a treat to myself. Drive from San Antonio to see her, have for 3+ yrs. She's the best! more

Anthony Brown is amazing! 11/4/2010

I found Anthony through a girl I worked with and I had been desperately trying to find someone to cut my short, fine, blonde hair. Anthony was the answer to my search! He is a hair artist and does a great job with my hair, and with others. I highly recommend him, at that I drive to Austin from San Antonio just to have him cut my hair more

It is worth the trip! 10/23/2010

Great environment, people and hair cut. more

New to the Area??? ANTHONY BROWN IS YOUR NEW HAIR STYLIST 10/14/2010

Anthony now cuts my and he colors and cuts my wifes hair. He has mad skills. He is super talented. His approach to cutting hair is brilliant. My wife and I went to my first hair cut with Anthony and were immediately impressed. He is truly a great guy and sincere. We had a lot of fun but most importantly he did a perfect job with my frustrating hair. \r \r Im new to Austin and I am always weary about having a new person cut my hair. My hair is a little thick, a little wavy and a few cowlicks... NOT for amatures! When I find a person who can cut my hair I stick with them as long as I can. You will have to ask him to truly appreciate it but he will ""LOVE YOUR HAIR"".\r \r If your new to the area or if you or somebody else screwed up your hair and you need it fixed immediatly go to Anthony and feel confident that he will take care of you. He listens and does what you ask. I believe its good to ask him what he thinks and his opinion because he may know your hair better than you do.\r \r MAD SKILLS, SUPER NICE GUY AND HE LISTENS!!! more

Charlie Hodges: A God Among Men (and Stylists) 8/3/2010

I got recommended to Charlie when he worked at a different salon. That was four years ago, and I have never let another person touch my hair ever since. Not only is he an AMAZING stylist who elevates hair color to an art form, he's also incredibly funny and cracks me up every time I see him. I always look forward to going. If you're even a little OCD, you'll love Charlie because he's a perfectionist. When I first met him, he told me that every woman has a picture in her head of exactly what she wants her hair to look like, and his goal was to make it exactly like that picture. And he does it! Very highly recommended; I will be with Charlie until the bitter end. more

Charlie--always knows how to fix it! 7/18/2010

I went to Charlie for 2-3 years and then moved way north and needed to pay off some debt. My hair hasn't been the same since. \r \r Charlie is really good at cutting, coloring, and styling hair that doesn't want to be styled. \r I've missed having people comment on how great my hair looks after he cuts it.\r I'm thinking it's time to deal with the drive and the few extra bucks.\r In addition to all that, Charlie (and his wife, Niki) are really nice people.\r Pros: artistic, creative; intuitive stylist more

Anthony Rocks! 6/18/2010

I recently moved to Austin and was worried about finding a stylist, considering I have a short hair cut and am VERY picky! BUT I called here and talked with Sovay, she recommended Anthony. He is amazing. Very particular and actually listens to what YOU want. He does a great job of cutting my hair, and we are trying to grow it out and it still looks cute :) He also does my color, blonde, and of course it looks amazing too! He's the best! more

Anthony Rocks! 5/14/2010

Anthony is the only person I trust with my hair and I will travel ANYWHERE to get his hair luvin'. A couple years ago, I had doubts about getting bangs since I'm a girl on the go and didn't want all the upkeep they require, but Anthony thought they'd make me feel sexy. He was right & he's bent over backwards to meet me on my hectic schedule to provide the trims I need. He's one of a kind! more

Erica Cantu has incredible cutting skills!! 5/11/2010

Sorry ... accidentally hit ""publish"".\r \r Where was I? Oh the comb and sizzor thing. I can only describe it as a fast, rhythmic interchange between comb-n-sizzor which provides a better look and final product than just doing the clipper thing.\r \r Then there's the razor cut. Well, you'll see. The razor provides a nice, soft textured cut that not even a pair of thinning shears can reproduce. Not many stylist use the razor but Erica is crazy good with them. \r \r I just hope I have her for a long time. I appreciate her skill. Pros: Is EXCELLENT w/ razor and prefers sizzors over clippers Cons: Calling a San Antonio number for an Austin appt!!! ;) more
