Hair is fun and it is also something I take very seriously. This picture does NOT do justice to the work that Heather Davis from Salon Sovay has done on my hair.
I recently found myself on the market for a new hairstylist a performed some massive searches on the internet to find a place. Somehow I stumbled upon Salon Sovay, read Heather’s bio and wanted to give it a shot.
So, I went in Saturday, a week ago, to get my first haircut from her. Salon Sovay is located in this cute little house just south of Oltorf on 1st Street. Honestly, it’s a little farther than I would normally drive from downtown but I really liked it when I saw the place and stepped inside. Now, I get to meet Heather; first impression, she was cute and definitely embodies the Austin funky style. Ok, that’s all good and well, but can she cut hair? My answer is a resounding yes. This is one of the best haircuts I have gotten in quite some time, and at a more than reasonable price I might add. As a new customer, I appreciated that she made it a point to let me know that it’s more than ok for me to play with my hair for a week and come back if I don’t like it. I mean, I know most hair peeps give some sort of guarantee, but I need permission to know it’s ok for me to come back if I don’t like it.
I have a feeling that this won’t be an issue, however, because after my first cut and color we added a few days later, I see that Heather is a perfectionist. As a person who takes my hair very seriously, I appreciate that greatly! It has only been a week and I have already had several people stop me and ask where I get my hair done. We finished up the color today and it’s just awesome!
I’ll have to post some more pictures soon to show off the color she has done. I’m most impressed with the passion and creativity she has brought to the table and hope I haven’t hyped her up so much that I lose my seat to all her new customers!
