ROAR salon is "hands down" the best place to get your hair done in Austin. Rory, salon owner, is the best colorist I have ever met. He is so talented and his techniques on coloring hair is a work of art. I get compliments on my hair all the time. Rory is also a FABULOUS person and I am so blessed to know him.
I am 41 years old and have been to every "upscale" salon in Austin over the past 20 years. I have also traveled to other cities, such as LA and New York, specifically to visit the well known, upscale salons in those cities as well. After much frustration and copious amounts of money spent, I was ready to just give up. I could not understand how I could walk out of a hair salon spending so much money, and not feel fabby...as you should. I was literally ready to save my money, color my own hair and run down to a 'walk in' salon that charges 8 to 10 dollars. Then I discovered Roar. I had heard some buzz around town about Roar, and decided to give them a try. BEST decision I have ever made. Not only is the salon super cool and groovy..yet sophisticated in its decor, when I called to make an appointment the receptionist made me feel like I was the only client they had. When I came in for my first appointment, the staff was so welcoming. When I sat down to get my hair colored by the owner Rory, he made me feel the same way..like I was his only client. He listened, gave suggestions, and let me ramble on about all my bad experiences. He is a master at coloring, and I get compliments everywhere I go. That day I walked out or Roar feeling as fabulous as I ever had. I have been a client here for about 3 years and I have never left unhappy. In fact, every time I leave I want to go our on the town to show off my hair.
Not only is ROAR the most fabulous place in Austin to get your hair did, Rory, salon owner, is quite possibly the most talented colorist around. Rory has been highlighting my dirty blonde hair since before he opened the doors of ROAR and for so long, has been my dirty little secret. But now the cat is out of the bag!!! The look he creates is so natural that the other day my dad asked me how my hair could be so much more blonde than my sister's when I am older than her? I hadn't the heart to tell him that I have been coloring it for years. You can read of Rory's tremendous accolades on the website, as well as all of his amazing experience. But the proof, my friends, is in the pudding. If you are searching for the look that is truly you, except a little bit better, then Rory is your man. If your aim is a little bolder or a little more daring, he can do that too, but I am continuously amazed at his ability to make my hair look fabulously natural.
I feel amazing when I leave ROAR and I am so glad to have discovered (literally) my own personal gold at the end of the rainbow! Thank you Rory and ROAR, you are the BEST!
Wonderful, wonderful place to be. The atmosphere is so calming and warm. And the service/people are the best you can ask for. I love ROAR - wish I lived in Austin so I could go more often.
Roar salon is a hidden gem! It's an absolutely gorgeous salon with a down to earth vibe. I had my hair cut and colored, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. Loved it!
