Kari Leon Geurerro, Owner and Master Colorist, founded KaRu in 2010 following 11 years of success in hairdressing. Possessing a remarkable ability to transform dull locks into head-turning masterpieces; she attracted some of the most experienced and talented stylists and colorists in Austin to her team. Our clients celebrate us as a salon that provides services that are “classy with an edge.”

KaRu is committed to providing a first-class experience for both their stylists and clients.

Every apprentice completes a year-long training program specifically developed by Kari. This ensures that every stylist meets our world-class standards. For this reason, Unite hair products recognized KaRu as one of the top five education-driven salons in the country and selected KaRu to join their team at New York Fashion Week 2012. Recently titled one of “Austin’s hair icons” by Austin Way Magazine, Kari leads her expert team with continued excellence to provide the most impeccable artistry and service possible.

The hairdresser is…

“It is my considered opinion that the hairdresser is the most influential person in any community. When the public goes to a hairdresser, something happens to them. They feel safe, they relax. The hairdresser knows what their skin is like under the makeup, they know their age, they don’t have to keep up any kind of pretense. People tell a hairdresser things they wouldn’t dare confess to a priest and they are open about matters they’d try to conceal from a doctor. When people place their secret lives in the hairdresser’s hands, the hairdresser gains an authority few other people attain. I have heard hairdressers quoted with complete conviction on art, literature, politics, economics, child care and morals. I tell you that a clever, thoughtful, ambitious hairdresser wields a power beyond comprehension of most people.”
