I’ve lived in Austin for 3 1/2 years and finally found THE SALON of Austin. I love their professionalism, communication, and true love for what they do. I’m hooked, thanks guys!

Tina has been doing my hair almost 14 years…Every single time she does my hair I walk out feeling like a runway model and get compliments on my color for months.

KaRu is one amazing place. Not only are their stylists and colorist amazingly talented, it’s a fun, friendly, and unpretentious place. The ambiance is energetic and inviting and the decor is stylish and beautiful.

Everything from making the appointment to the woman at the front desk just made this is a pleasant experience. I also love the all natural, vegan Unite products they use at Karu. I ended up buying the shampoo and conditioner, and am still loving them both.

They are all very talented and after trying 5 different salons and spending lots of money and complaining to my husband I am now a faithful and loyal client of Karu Salon. My hair is thick, curly and they have not thrown me out they are so good at what they do…they accept a challenge.

Even though it’s been almost a month, I still have people complimenting me on my hair color. I love my new color!
Lauren B.
I’ve always wanted to be able to walk into a hair appointment and give a basic idea of what I want, then trust the stylist to do what s/he thinks looks best. Dreams come true – that’s just what I got to do at KaRu!

After Innu closed I searched for a comfortable professional salon and found it at Karu. Tina is a great colorist and super friendly. Worth the money.
Sarah M.
Since I’ve been going to KaRu, I’ve referred several of my friends all of whom have raved about it and I can’t imagine going anywhere else. Seriously, if you want beautiful hair, go to KaRu.

I’ve lived in Austin for 23 years; I’m PICKY about my hair and this is the BEST salon I have found, hands down!

Love this place! My husband and I have been customers for about a year, and we just adore everyone at Karu. Everyone is very friendly and the atmosphere is so relaxing and inviting.
Sonia D.
You feel like part of their family when you are there. I highly recommend this place.
Catherine E.
To call Kari just a colorist would be doing her an injustice. She is an artist.
Lori P.
As soon as you walk in you feel like home, welcomed with smiles and open arms, and it’s a wonderful place to natter amongst everyone, and know you’re getting a classy cut.
Sophie P.
I visited Karu Salon for the first time and I was delighted with the atmosphere. It was extremely classy but not pretentious. I felt instantly at home and the moment I walked in I was greeted with smiles.
