The Color Studio Salon is staffed by boss babes who are at the top of the hair game!

We work as a team and are dedicated in providing a great time while letting us fix your crown👑

Our business here is pretty unique, The Color Studio Salon & Suites works like two businesses in one. Which includes a hair salon in the front and studio suites in the back,

that offer services not provided by the salon.

 

 When you work hard and be kind, amazing things will happen!

Chase those dreams and believe in yourself, you never know where it could take you!

Five years ago I left my beauty school instructor career behind and took the biggest step in my life going behind the chair. To those of you who are not in the beauty industry that means I left my comfortable salary job and went commission working at a salon with no clientele. There were days I remember leaving the salon crying in my car because I was literally there all day and had either no one sit in my chair or just a few come in throughout the week. I'm not lying to you when I say, I would collect at least two to three paychecks before cashing them out in the beginning because I was to embarrassed of how little I was making.

 

I was determined to be successful and never said no to anything in the beginning even pedicures. When no one wanted to do them I said yes :) because you never know in conversation they might need their hair done. After two years of hard work I was able to leave and start my own journey opening up The Color Studio back on January 2, 2018.

Let me tell you consistency is key because now after another two years of hard work I took the next biggest step in my life and officially opened The Color Studio Salon January 2, 2021! My dream vision for the salon is for a whole bunch of boss babes together in a space getting our lady hustle on and supporting each other.

When I was a little girl, I loved to play beauty shop. I enjoyed doing make up and hair. As I got older I got more interested in the beauty industry. Being bullied my whole childhood,  I've always had very low self esteem because of it. As soon as I was introduced to the beauty industry, I realized just how beautiful and good I could feel about myself, and the true meaning behind hair and makeup!

 

For me it is an art, A way of expressing myself and to show what kind of talents I have. This became my passion in life! After high school I attended Paul Mitchell beauty school for 11 months. Right after I started full time in a salon for five years. It was time for a change and that’s when I decided to move to The Color Studio.

 

I needed something new, fresh and positive! Because I am a very detail oriented person, I want my clients to leave feeling beautiful about themselves. Because every woman deserves to feel beautiful, in my eyes doing hair and makeup can only enhance the natural beauty that everyone possess inside!

I find great joy in being the person chosen to beautify those that seek my help. Handing out confidence with a twist of the wrist and a stroke of a brush to every one of my clients, friends and family. That brings me the most joy and happiness beyond words!

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah & I’ve been a licensed stylist for over 8 years. Since I was young, I’ve always had a love for everything beauty: fun colored nails, makeup to impress & of course, ever changing hair.

 

My beauty career started at the age of 15 when I entered my high schools’ brand new cosmetology program in the small town of Crystal City, TX. I became the first student in the programs history to graduate and receive my cosmetology license. After working for 3 years back home, I made the move to the big city to learn & grow in my career.

 

I provide a variety of services, but balayaging & transforming hair is my specialty. I love connecting and building relationships with my clients to not only give them beautiful hair, but help them feel their absolute best to go out and conquer their world.

 

Come have a seat in my chair and let’s make your hair dreams come true! ✨

Hello lovely people,

My name's Karen Pickens, also known as "Kayzelle" (family nickname). I was born in the Philippines, but grew up as a military brat, moving from place to place. I have always loved everything in beauty.

At the age of 4, my mom taught me how to braid, and since then, I styled my own hair. I used to buy the Cosmopolitan Magazines in my teen years, and that's where I learned how to apply makeup and do different hairstyles.

Growing up I wasn't allowed to do any fun colors to my hair until I turned 18. Then, as soon as I turned 18, I bleached and permed my hair! I know now that wasn't the best idea. As I got older, I'd visit the salon frequently and always wondered what it would be like to work in a hair salon.

In 2016, I enrolled at the Aveda arts Institute in Corpus Christi as a Cosmetologist, then graduated May 2017. Fast forward to today, I work at a beautiful salon with the most amazing women, and it's been a dream come true!

Hey there friends! Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Ashley Hebert-Martinez! I came into the beauty industry during covid after my first career as a sales rep for restaurant supplies was demolished from the pandemic.    I came into the industry knowing a little about hair and how to do my own but I was pretty unsure about how my anxiety filled self would feel doing someone else’s! So when I did my first highlight on “Anna” the mannequin my whole world changed. I have a serious love for colors! I love to do the color melting and making the colors as un natural as possible 🌈.  A couple fun facts about me, I grew up in Livingston Montana, yes like the show “Yellowstone” 😅 the town I lived in only has 7k people I love my  little 3 stop light town but I don’t love the snow ❄️ . I have a twin sister there and my mother still lives there as well💓 I have lived in Texas for going on 9 years 😱 and it has been the best decision. I moved to Austin and began my career as a rep, I was then promoted after 5 years with Ace Mart and they moved me to San Antonio and I have loved everything about this city 🙌🏼 I am a mother and step mother to two beautiful girls, Maxan and Luxley (9) and they keep me busy! 😅 I love to get to know all my clients and build those life long relationships! Also a HUGE social media junkie 😂 I love to post, educate and make people laugh! I hope to see you soon! 💓

I was Born and raised in Rhode Island, I moved to Texas in 2018.

I'm an adrenaline junky who loves animals, going to concerts, and watching horror/true crime movies. I’ve had a passion for hair since I was 8 years old, I’ve basically grown up in the salon watching and learning as much as I could. Once I got my hands in hair I knew I would be doing it for the rest of my life.

I'm dedicated to giving my clients the hair of their dreams. I want everyone in my chair to feel beautiful and comfortable and to leave more confident than ever before.

I have a goal to never stop learning and connecting with people and I can’t wait to have you in my chair.
