West End Reviews

MY FAVORITE SALON! I am from Chicago, so I was very skeptical of trying a new salon in Austin. I used to go to a high end, down town salon a few blocks from my house. Thankfully when I first moved here my coworker recommended it, and I have been coming ever since! From the greet to the consultation to the private hair washing room to the style and cut itself, best experience every time. I had jumped around from stylist to stylist within the Ruiz Salons for about a year, then I met Nikki! She is the best, I love her and her cuts are nothing less than exactly what I want! It's incredible! 10/10 would recommend! Never a bad hair cut! Always a ton of fun! The best hair dresser (I apologize if this is an antiquated term lol) I have ever had hands down!

Absolutely love the exceptional hair cuts Sharon gives. Each time is exactly what I'm looking for. Ferrence was able to add highlights & tone perfectly to...

First off as someone who works on social media I am always a bit nervous when trying a new place especially when you’re talking about changing your hair color. The whole experience from start to finish was tranquil,beyond professional and superseded any and all expectations I had set. Juanita was the one whom greeted me as I walked in offering drinks and welcoming me with all the current promotions. Sole was my colorist and was knowledge and very compassionate explaining so much about my concern of breakage caused by another salon. I felt so comfortable and relaxed. The price was almost identical to what I have been paying at the old shop and I am so grateful to this team. Salon Ruiz from start to finish was a fine tuned machine..EVERYONE AND I MEAN EVERYONE WAS SMILING AND Accommodating. 10/10.. I don’t know who you have running the show here, but you definitely picked the right one.

This was my first time at Ruiz West End after a friend recommended Alex. Alex immediately understood what I had hoped to do and she was spot on!Everyone else was very friendly and helpful. And the parking was a big plus as well.

*Ruiz is a FANTASTIC salon - but this review is specifically for one of their stylists*Alex is the absolute best! I’m always excited to try new looks with her because I trust that she’ll do an amazing job and she takes the time to consider every little detail about a cut and style. Not only do I always leave absolutely thrilled, I also genuinely appreciate the way she shares her expertise through suggestions that supplement what I’d had in mind, so that my experience is uniquely tailored to my own hair type and my personal style.

Shani is excellent with highlights. She makes them last a long time and does not do too much. The reason for 4 stars is that I was quoted $115 for highlights but with toner and botonical which I was not asked if I wanted doubled the price. I want to know up front what I am being charged. This is on the salon not Shani. I like the hand massage and the excellent service but that is what a tip is for.

Alex is a genius. I have a lot of very curly, fine hair and she always gives me a perfect cut that I can wash and wear, whether I want to go long, short, bangs, or layers. She's super talented, skilled, fast, and focused.

I have been coming to Ruiz Salon every month for 30 years. The treatment is consistent from the front desk, hair coloring, shampooing and haircut and styling. I have never had a bad experience. Also, there is always something to shop for!

Everything from the moment you walk in the door until you depart, is excellent! You are greeted with warmth, asked what they can get for you while you await the most relaxing shampoo, replete with aromatherapy and temple massage. It is with good reason that Allan Ruiz is sought world-wide as a stylist and professional. One sign of an extraordinary haircut is traveling and staying up almost 24 hours from Austin to Seville, Spain and your hair still looks fantastic. Thank you Allan!

Fab experience, need a cut and some hair love? Don't think twice. The intro price for new customers is great. My stylist was lovely and the whole experience just a great self care treat.

Jaime cut my hair cut a few months ago. I still love it! It is one of the best haircuts I've ever had. She listened to what I wanted and gave me great recommendations on style. I can't wait till I meet with her again for my next haircut.

Ruiz salon employee Souli, was beyond fantastic. She worked magic on my hair. I love the ambience inside. It seems all of them are truly there with their hearts!! Souli, thank you for literally saving my hair game! Kenzi, thank you for referring my stylist! I would’ve never walked into Ruiz on my ow . I am glad I did. Now I am booked for my next hair miracle in six weeks, because after this experience I’m definitely going back!

Highly highly recommend Alex Langley for hair cuts, wash & styles! She’s 100% attentive and gives the most relaxing shampoo massages.

I love this salon! My hair looks great every time and they make it so easy for me to schedule with flexible appointments available early in the morning and late at night, plus they’ve always got weekends available which is rare. I moved out of state and was nervous to find someone who could do my blonde without damaging my hair; it has never looked better!

Shani did my color work with partial dimension and toner. It looks amazing! Very rich color and the depth I was looking for this holiday season. Many Thanks!

Went to Ruiz Salon while visiting Austin over Thanksgiving. I desperately needed a haircut and booked with Zeke. He was amazing! He was thorough, evaluated my hair length and texture and helped me design a cut and style that's best for my lifestyle. Highly recommend!

I love this salon! Everyone is so gracious and helpful. You can tell everyone likes working there! Shani does amazing color work on my hair. And last week Angela did a keratin treatment on my hair and it has changed my life! My hair is so smooth, soft, and manageable. Ruiz is the Bomb!

After my daughter was born I was left with a new wave texture to my hair that I have not been able to appreciate until now. I came in for a haircut, and left with more confidence that I can style my hair into more than a frizzy mess. Alex gave me a fantastic cut, and took the time out to show me how to style my beach waves. I had the tools and now have the products and know how to use them.

Very accommodating, I once had a booking error on their end and they made sure to take care of it for my next appointment which I really appreciated. I felt...

Monica is amazing and has helped me realize the full potential of my hair! Love going to her for haircuts, and she always makes stellar recommendations. Thanks to Monica I never have to style my hair because of my haircuts!

First of all Sasha went above and beyond all expectations! When I arrived at the salon parking was easy which I love! The front desk staff was kind and accommodating. Everyone I interacted with was friendly and asked if I needed anything. It was so nice to be offered coffee and water because most salons aren’t offering those services. Sasha was so clear and direct about my services. I really didn’t think the color I wanted was achievable but she proved me wrong! She made it easy to understand the process, cost and maintenance. My service was relaxing and took half the time I would sit at other salons. I’m so thankful I met her and I’m excited to come again! Thank you Sasha and the whole Ruiz staff!
15:28 08 Feb 22
My stylist, Alex is the BEST! She has completely changed my view on getting my hair cut. I’ve been going to her for a year and a half, with set goals in mind. I know that she always had my best interest at heart, and wants me to achieve my hair goals even more than I do! High end salon, and I definitely have to budget like crazy to afford going here consistently, but it’s worth every penny for the services.

I've had great color and haircuts here for years, but customer service has been a mixed bag. It feels more like a spa than a salon - you wear a comfy robe,...

I had a service with Malory last night and love my haircut! She did a great job listening to my needs and I’m very happy with the result. Pam was exceptional when helping me book my appointment and was very helpful and patient working with me as I had to make a few schedule changes. Overall very nice experience.

Had a wonderful experience at Ruiz salon- seaholm location. Journi and Amber took phenomenal care of me... you will see in the pictures attached how drastic this cut/color was... and these two young women nailed it! Very very happy and will continue to sing their praises. I also enjoyed the culture/vibe of the salon and everyone was friendly, accommodating and made me feel welcome. I honestly can’t say enough great things about this experience. I want to mention the owner being onsite and I appreciated his interactions with his staff and his commitment to excellence! Thank you so much Ruiz Salon!

LOVE This salon. They do a beautiful job, my experience is consistently relaxing and enjoyable and the no-tip policy means I know what I'm spending up-front. I've been going here for 15+ years.

Went and got a ‘pick me up’ highlight with Ethan. BEYOND AMAZING! Ethan is a great stylist that makes you feel special the moment he greets you. The salon is a relaxing and he just adds to the experience. Good conversation, great stylist, amazing experience! Go see Ethan!!

Bre was amazing. She did an excellent job correcting my hair color. I will definitely be back. I am very impressed with the salon.

It ceases to amaze me at the friendliness of the staff and professionalism at Jackson Ruiz. Everyone is so kind to me and welcoming. Thank you for that! I continue to adore and appreciate Laken's expertise and honesty regarding my hair. Also, an unsung hero who has assisted me in the last couple of years when emergencies have come up and appointments cancelled and needing to be rescheduled is Pam! She's an unsung hero! So, here's to you Pam for your friendly, caring, and compassion towards me.
