Get Started


We are a team of outgoing, creative individuals who work together to provide an outstanding salon experience. We all have the desire to learn and grow, so we make it a priority to offer plentiful coaching and mentoring opportunities to our team.  No need to guess if you’re doing a good job or not, you’ll always be in the loop and guided by our caring leadership team.

Named a Salon Today 200 Salon and an Austin American Statesman Best Place to Work, in addition to winning honors at the North American Hairstyling Awards, Canadian Hairstyling Awards and a Behind the Chair One Shot Awards, our award-winning reputation demonstrates we’ve curated a highly-skilled and unified team—and that our guests have noticed the difference.

We foster an engaging and exciting work environment by hosting a variety of events throughout the year. Some of our favorites include Boat Tours on Lady Bird Lake, The Ruiz Amazing Race, our annual Holiday Potluck, Hot Dog Roasts and Winter Celebration.  In addition we host a new-talent showcase annually where our newest stylists present a collection and launch themselves into the Austin beauty scene that celebrates their originality and taste level.

Find out if we’re a match.



We have two salon locations in the greater Austin area, and whether you’re a fresh transplant or born & raised—everything you need is only steps away. Both locations are positioned just a short walk from Lady Bird Lake, hiking trails, and a cycling path, making Ruiz Salon a convenient outdoor hub in Downtown Austin.

Nature isn’t the only attraction in this area—vibrant art, upscale shopping, irresistible restaurants and eclectic energy make our neighborhood an exciting and energizing place to work. Guests love visiting our salon, and with Austin’s booming growth our team enjoys limitless potential to expand their books.

Go ahead, take the chance. It could change your life, and ours.

Join Our Team


Each day is a chance to learn something new at Ruiz. For us, education is essential—each Ruiz stylist has the opportunity to develop their artistry with world-class career development training, continuing education and workshops from industry-leading artists.

We know training is not one-size-fits-all—our stylists have the ability to develop skills at their own pace, with all the support they need to thrive.

At Ruiz Salon, we make it a priority to give back to the local community. We contribute to many non-profit organizations in the Austin area, including the Capital Area Food Bank, Safe Place, and Operation Blue Santa.

Aligned with Aveda’s mission of sustainability and wellness, health and the environment are also causes we hold close to our hearts. We participate in Aveda’s annual fundraising initiatives for charity: water, earth month, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

We donate over $10,000 a year towards local causes and have raised over $500,000 for clean water since 2000.
