A Letter From Karla


Our girl Karla had an amazing experience in the salon yesterday that we thought was share worthy. These are her words after working with a new client who reached out to us:


“The Internet is a powerful tool if used correctly. It gets your name out there and leads people(in my case) sitting in my chair. This client moves state to state with her husband every 10 months and never knows where she will end up next. She began looking up hashtags and different salons in Austin and found my work and loved what she saw! I know all my posts are probably annoying to some, but to me it’s advertising my art. Put it out into the universe, and it shall give back.”


Our work is our art, and even more so our livelihood. We are honored to let them be one in the same!



Stay dangerously beautiful, Sirens Salon



The Magic And Myths Of Day(s) Old Hair


Much like Matthew McConaughey is known for ditching the deodorant, we are getting in on the grunge look too! Don’t worry dolls; we aren’t ditching the smell blockers, just cutting the daily hair washes. That’s right, your own stylists are saying it’s time to stop shampooing so often, and here’s why:


By washing your hair daily you strip the follicles of their natural oils. Even the most organic and natural of products can cause distress. By washing your hair every couple of days you give your head a break and keep your color looking fresh longer! Bonus, having day(s) old hair allows for better and longer lasting styling/updos.


And now, for the myths to squash RIGHT NOW:

1. Won’t my hair be greasy? We suggest investing in some fab hats for the first week or two of your no washing project. But after that your hair will stay looking fabulous throughout! And for those days that need just a little help, we suggest Unite 7 Seconds Refresher.

2. Won’t I get lice? Though you might not believe it, lice is more prone to clean hair so not washing isn’t going to make you a target!

3. Won’t my hair smell bad? From personal experience, we have yet to smell any of our girls’ hair : ) But, when it comes down to it, Unite always has our back! Their Hair Perfume is perfect for an inbetween wash fresh smell.


For more info on day(s) old hair ask your stylist at your next appointment!

Corrected by Sirens


Sometimes new clients end up at Sirens looking for a solution to their current color woes. This is when we bring in the big guns and get down to the service in which we specialize: color correction!


Much like any other service, our stylists take time to consult and assess the current situation. Keeping budget in mind, they will find the best way to have you walk out confident in your new do. Something to keep in mind when going in for a color correction is that you might not leave with the exact look you are thinking. Fixing a problem can be timely and costly; it’s a process that we want to get right!


Hair integrity is also something we always consider with color corrections. As much as we want to achieve your desired look, we also want to make sure to keep your hair as healthy as we can in the process. It is very important for clients to be honest and upfront about any and ALL hair history. Chemicals and past dye jobs will effect the outcome of your color correction.

In this exact instance our client had untouched roots, a band of past black hair dye and ombre she was unhappy with. Our stylist, Lauren, worked to give her a cohesive look as realistically close to the blonde photos she brought in while keeping her budget in mind. After several closely monitored steps this new Sirens client left feeling confident and beach babe blonde all over!

Let Your Eyes Shine!

photo-273 I have been working with Sirens Salon for a few months now, taking photos and raving about the amazing work I watch them do. Being a granola type girl, it is rare for me to touch my hair or make up, and though they have done great work for photo shoots and blog tutorials, I’ve never gotten down to the nitty gritty with the salon.


That was until yesterday. Sitting in the back room I heard Owner Emma’s voice trickle in “Dye Shelby’s eyelashes!”


My only question: “What is they all fall out? You can’t fix that can you?”


Sitting down in the waxing chair my heart began to race, my mind fluttering to all the things that could go wrong. And then, we began.


My body instantly at ease as Sirens stylist, Lauren, took me step by step through the process, asking many time if everything felt alright, and keeping conversation even when I had to lay eyes closed for 10 minutes.


Time and time again I watch these girls do amazing work, and I watch them be the most humbling and comforting salon staff. They are gracious and professional, but most of all, they truly care. They want the best for their clients and take great pride in their work.


It also didn’t hurt that when I woke up in a frenzy from a missed alarm this morning, I took a look in the mirror and was able to bypass makeup all together. Something that before would have never been the case with terribly transparent lashes.


So thank you Sirens, for keeping my spider legs in tact, and for walking me through a quite concerning experience.



**Eyelash dying is $30.00 and last for about 4 weeks.



-Stay dangerously beautiful,

Love Shelby
