Amazing salon. I've consistently been amazed with the people and the service at Urban Betty Salon. Chelle has cut my hair for the last two years and I couldn't be happier. This is THE place in Austin for men to get their hair cut. The salon expanding and growing and I can't wait for my next experience there. Always an amazing time.
