This place is so friendly, so warm, and so inviting. The people are fun, hard working, and beyond skilled. I've gone to this place multiple times to see Allison for my silver hair and I've always wanted out with a giant smile on my face beyond happy with my results.
My sister and I visited at the same time yesterday for the first time. We loved our experience! They nailed the color and cuts. And how can you not love the great stories they have to share?! We'll be back!
Loved the environment and how my hair came out! Got it done with Esme and she was great!
i have asian hair which means its SO HARD to lighten. it always turns orange and stays that way. i bleached myself at home about 3 times and gave up and was referred by kirsten from sally beauty to go see shelly here. SHELLY IS AMAZING!! the girls here are sweet and shelly told me she made all her prices reasonable and honest bc thats the kind of treatment shed want which is so considerate. i have NEVER and i mean NEVER seen my orange ass bleached hair turn to such a nice ashy gray. AND she gave me what i wanted with a beautiful color melt i do have to say that i did pre lighten my hair before going so if you dont get what you want the first time, be patient bc bleaching is a PROCESS. but OMG T18 by wella could NEVER tone like shelly can.
Ok guys, THIS IS THE PLACE YALL NEED TO GO to get your hair done. I'm on cloud 9 right now because of how good my hair turn out. Allison was super great, knowledgeable and know what she is doing. I have been wanting to dye my hair silver for the longest time and she has made it happens !!!!!
To get to this silver, I did 2 bleach sessions with Allison. My hair was solid black originally so it cant be lighten enough with just 1 session. Allison talked to me about the process, let me know what we are dealing with and what I should expect.
I highly recommend her !!!!!
I had the best experience with Shelly. She was knowledgeable and very experienced. She made me feel comfortable from the minute I walked in.
I have lived outside of Austin for the past four years and have struggled to find someone who was skilled and didnt break the bank. So, I have been going back to Chicago to get my haircut every five weeks . The problem was that I have been going to the same stylist since I was 13 and im now 49. Finally got tired of flying to get my haircut every month.
I have tried a few places but nothing seemed to pan out. Had a few recommendations from others in the area but the problem was the stylist either cost 300 for a cut and color or had no idea what they were doing.
I finally decided to do the research on my own. I knew the minute I walked into the salon I made a good choice. Everything about Top Image reminded me of my stylist in Chicago. Great prices!!! And highly skilled stylist. Love love love my haircut. Already have my appointment for next month. It only took me 4 years but I finally found a great stylist. Thanks Shelly for a wonderful experience!!!
For the past 22 years, my mother has always cut my hair and I've gone to multiple places for color. I've never been to any hair salon that wasn't in my home town so I was already nervous about going someone new. I easily made an appointment online and then met Teagan. She instantly made me feel welcome by asking me what I wanted. I have curly hair so my biggest concern was how short my hair would be and the entire team Teagan was cutting my hair she kept double checking then length and apologized for being a perfectionist but I LOVED that she was a perfectionist because it made me trust her easily. My hair hasn't been this short since 2010 and I've been so used to having long hair, but I wanted to get rid of all of my dyed dead hair, and now I have short hair but it's healthy and natural and just what I wanted.
Everyone at the salon was so nice, I will definitely be back for other services!
Wonderful haircut by Esme!! It's rare that you ask for a trim and the stylist ACTUALLY gives you a trim instead of lobbing a few inches off - she did a fantastic job. She kept the general shape of my hair and layers that I wanted, too, and then a face frame which looks so good! The salon was clean and the other staff were so welcoming. Great haircut experience!
I'm a student at Texas State and found out about this salon while I was flipping through the coupon book. I decided to give it a try, and have been so happy I did! Shelley was really friendly and she is great with color! I've gotten a lot of compliments on my highlights =) I would definitely recommend this salon. It has a home-y feel to it, too!
Hair stylist Esme not only gave me the best experience but the best customer service and best hair outcome I've ever had and I'm so glad i came here and put my trust into this hair salon 100% would recommend!
This place is my new jam from now on. Alison did my hair. Absolutely LOVE IT!!!!! Shes super professional. My head was burn a bit after bleaching ( due to my dry scalp). She was able to fit me in right the next day for 2nd round of tone so that it will remove the rest of the yellow and orange tone from my hair. I have got so many compliments. Im glad I decided to give Top Image a try. Highly recommended !!!!
Great place. Teagan always is patient at getting my hair just right !!
great place to get your haircut! Teagan did a fantastic job trimming and layering. she's very sweet and gave me much information about my hair. definitely will go back for a visit again!
Teagan is not only amazing and hair cut AND color (going blonde, so lightening), but I knew she was the stylist for me when she didn’t try to put a bunch of junk in my hair before drying it OR didn’t try to sell me a bunch of products. She never has. And seriously, finding a good stylist that clicks with you/your hair is almost as impossible as finding the right partner! There are other salons in SM that you can pay $300 for the full “blonde experience” but nah, I’ll stick with Top Image where they keep it real!
The stylists at Top Image are great! ??
I've coming to get my hair done by Shelly for 2 years and I can honestly say I'm very happy here! The ladies here are very nice and always here to help you with any questions you have.
Y’all! Allison is AMAZING! I highly recommend and will be going back!! She took my yellow hair and fixed it just as I asked!!
Allison did an incredible job on clean up my very damaged and yellow hair. definitely going back
I'm absolutely in love with my new hair!! As someone who has never gotten her hair professionally dyed, I was definitely worried about how the results would turn out. But Allison Wimberly did AMAZING on my partial balayage, and even did the bottom half of my hair ombr to give it that look. Everyone was so friendly, I loved the experience, and on top of that, got a MORE than fair price! Definitely recommend!!
I got my hair done by Allison yesterday and I love it! I got an ashy blonde bayalage and it looks great. She did exactly what I asked and actually made it look better than what I pictured! I called asking when I could come in and she was available right then. Andddd she stayed and extra two hours after closing to finish my hair. Everyone in the salon was so sweet, it was a great environment! I will definitely be returning :-)
I went in for a cut and balayage. Alison took care of me and she was great. She's very sweet, knowledgeable, and has been doing hair since she was young.
My only complaint would be that I scheduled an appointment for 12:00. I showed up early at 11:40 and was not seen till almost 2:30... I took off from work for the appt and wasn't given any discount or anything.
But other than the long wait I had a good experience.
Alice is the best! I have been going to her for a long time and I will never go see anyone else! She balayages my hair and always makes sure it's healthy. I will never go anywhere else!
Teagen did an amazing job on my hair. She did a trio balayage with a cut, conditioning and style and I'm obsessed. She's very sweet and talented. Highly recommend!
Very amazing experience i was able to completely relax after being at work since 3am she started working on my hair at 10am and im very pleased with the turn out of the color choice deep Burgundy when my natural is a dark brown i will definitely be going back
Shelly did exactly as I requested, took me back to all white from grey dark brown auburn mess. She trimmed an d repaired a really bad cut as well. Now I have the Hair and the cut I have been used to! Randy Loving Wimberley
I loved this place! So cute and chic. I had an appointment with my sister for 12:30 and was in and out within 20 minuets. They were so nice and made us feel comfortable. We will definitely be going back!
Best salon in San Marcos. It's truly a one-stop-shop. Hair, nails, waxing and microblading!!!!
Greatest Salon EVER!! The interior is unique and stylish, the girls are really great people! Will come back if I need another appointment.
I love this place the people are amazing and sweet they help me out with figuring out what right for my hair and do an awesome job cutting, styling and coloring this is my favorite place!!
Great service. Called and got appt same day. Staff is friendly. And I like my hair cut. Definitely recommend this place.
So I can assure u I don’t like anyone doing my hair I do my own normally cuz of cost and all. However this woman has impressed me. I am getting mine done on Wednesday. I have no doubts it’s gonna be amaze!!! I currently have “trumpish” on top and platinum on the ends. I will show before and after I decided to ruin a good thing wanted to go bk to platinum way too quickly. My bad. ? any hoo she says it’s fixable. Thanks in advance my friend.
I went in to get a golden baylage by Shelly and I loved the outcome! Best salon I've been to by far. She was very sweet and friendly and was very welcoming in her salon. I can tell she loves what she does and is good at it too! I would definitely recommend this place!
Patricia did an amazing job! I’m always indecisive about what I want done and she did an amazing job!
Today was my 1st day back to work since I got my hair done and I got so many compliments. Thank you Patricia for helping my transition back to blonde from brown. And everyone in the salon was so nice while I was there. I will be back! ?
I love top image! Everyone there is super nice and accommodating I've never had a bad experience. They always get your hair exactly how you want it! Definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting perfect hair!
I absolutely love this salon!! Shelly does an amazing job every time i go to get my hair highlighted . My daughter recommended this place to me i been going to Top Image for over a year, it never disappoints !!
Love it ???? great staff !
I absolutely fell in love with this salon and the staff. They are so sweet and very considerate. Alice took good care of me and the time to make my hair look perfect! She gave me plenty of advice for taking care of my hair and was very flexible with her schedule. She made me feel comfortable and made sure I was happy with my hair I am definitely coming back? i recommend this place to friends and family.
I had a wonderful experience at Top Image. Teagan was my hairstylist and She did a great job. Hair cut, hair color, some highlights and styled my hair. I absolutely loved my new style and I'm so excited for my new look. Thank you Teagan! I also got to see Shelly do a Awesome job on a girl who was getting her hair done for prom. Very Sweet girls????
Shelley Gonzales is the best!!! Top Image Rocks!!!!!!!
Shelley is AMAZING. I drive all the way from Dripping Springs to have her do my hair because she is that good!
This place is amazing! I have only been to Shelly. She is the best of the best!!! I am very picky with who touches my hair because it is thick and curly. She always does such an amazing job! On top of that, all of my friends that I have sent to Shelly have loved their hair as well. Additionally, if you work or live on campus, their new location is a walking distance - and they even have the cutest coffee station in their waiting area!
Shelly is talented and super affordable! I appreciate how she plans what she wants to before each appointment. She is also kind and genuinely cares about making sure you leave happy with her work!
Shelly did a miracle on my hair! I've never left a salon and actually been confident and happy with my hair. The salon is beautiful and the employees are so sweet!! I will for sure be coming back and referring friends. Thank y'all so much!
Lucky day when I found this salon on Yelp. From my phone call, which I got an appointment the same day, to my stylist Alison, which it turns out I used to work with her. Alison was friendly and enthusiastic. First time I've ever had a stylist I had to tell to cut more off. Most try to scalp you. Seriously, give this place a try. You won't be disappointed!
I take my hair no where else! I love Top Image, my kinda ladies, awesome talent and great service.
Brought my daughter in for make up and style hair. 3.5 hours + later she looks wonderful and ready for prom. All of you were patient with my daughters wishes and most accommodating to her. Many thanks
New to San Marcos and needed to get my hair trimmed. Teagan is amazing! Not only did she trim my hair but we also did a few highlights. I love it. I would recommend her to anyone that asks. Thank you so much Teagan. You are my new stylist here in San Marcos.
I went in wanting to be super blonde!!! And Shelly did soooo good!!! She did my hair just how I wanted it ,SUPER BLONDE! Definitely going back!!
I wanted to go super blonde and Shelly did sooooooo good!!! I love my hair so much ! Best salon I have ever been to!!
I've been to sooooo many hair salons trying to get a super icy blonde color. I didn't have any luck till I went to top image hair salon. Shelley did my hair EXACTLY how I wanted it! I will definitely be back!!!!
Best hair salon I've been to in San Marcos! Teagan did an amazing job working with the brassy blonde I had gotten at other salons in town and transformed it into a beautiful balayage. Gave me a shade of blonde that perfectly complemented my skin tone and brown that matched my natural hair color great. I'll be coming here from now on!
Patricia did a wonderful job on my color. She was really helpful helping me pick out a new look and it turned out great. Thanks Patricia.
This is a very cozy shop with awesome customer service.
If I could give this place ten stars, I would--but alas yelp maxes out at 5. I have been going to Shelly for some time now and she always does my hair very nice. Sometimes I just ask her to do what she wants, which is never a disappointment. Highly recommended. Very cute Tiffany's chic atmosphere. You won't be disappointed, but make sure you call and make an appointment because this little treasure is busy :)
Today I received a great cut, color, and partial highlight from Teagan. I came in yesterday with my hair looking a mess (at at-home hair dye disaster) and was trying to get in anywhere I could to get it fixed. I was able to get an appointment with her and I am SO glad I did! I'm moving out of the area soon, but I will be back to get a touch up from her before I leave! I definitely recommend!!
Top Image is a great salon to get a haircut, at a reasonable price. I always feel welcome when I go in, and the hair stylist Shelly is always professional, and makes sure I'am satisfied. I'm always getting compliments, and being asked where I get my haircut at. I always recommend Top Image Hair Salon.
I came across Sonya at Top Salon because Ben at Premier cuts butchered my hair earlier that morning. I was in desperate need of the mess to be sorted. Called them up, told them the situation, and they fit me in! When I got there, Sonya was ready for me! She assessed the damage and started her magic. Earlier that day I asked Ben for a trim with long layers framing my face. What I got was one inch off the back (behind the ears) and 3 inches from the hair in front of my face. It wasn't blended. Just one length. By the end of the fix she had blended in the horror to suit my needs. I got to keep all of my length in back and it was blended so that it looked very nice in front. I highly recommend Top Image salon for anyone who isn't quite sure where to go for hair care. They are great with long hair!!!
I recently had to move to San Marcos for school and I left my usual hair dresser back home, thinking I would never find someone I trusted as much as her. Then I came to Top Image and Shelly was AMAZING!! She took the time to make sure she didn't cut off too much hair and the cut I have now is one of the best I've ever had! She listened to what I wanted, made sure we were on the same page, and delivered!
Convenient; great price! Owner Shelley gave me a professional haircut for a great price. She took as much time and care as any salon I've been to, at any price. I'll be back!
Shelly at Top Image Salon is really good at doing Highlights and is very cheap. I recommend everyone to go there. My husband and I been going to Shelly even before she opened her own Salon, which has been about 3 years now. My husband and I won't go to anyone else but her. I have referred a lot of people to her and they all seem to love her as well. Believe me you won't be disappointed.
its just a great place to relax and have fun while getting pampered.
Only 3 ?...This needs at least 5 stars !!!! Top Image is Top Notch !! Shelly is very personable and a joy to see. Jowana is great too !! that girl can work majic to some hair! I can spend all day there talking and drinking some monster ! Me and my family enjoy going the extra mile from Austin. Thanks guys!!
