Testimonials from Clients
Alicia C. 9/1/2022 - Melissa Bush Mercado at Salon Republic was great, she asked me what I needed and really listened. She took her time, cut a lot of the weight out from the back of my hair, added nice layers which gave my hair lots of movement and did some texturizing. Nice shampoo and conditioner with a sweet scalp massage. She doesn't push you to buy products but I desperately need to add moisture back to my hair so I bought some. Anyway, she is awesome and I'll def be going back!
Pam S. 2/24/2022 - Always Amazing. I love my short pixie haircut and look younger. I feel great every time I see Melissa. She is Professional, Sweet and Reliable.
Danielle S. 9/24/2022 - Absolutely Amazing!! I have curly hair and she created a wash and go style that is so easy to style. I love her product recommendations and loved how she enhanced my natural color. I feel younger and my hair is gorgeous. Most of all she was on time and we had a great consultation. I am bringing my daughter in for a keratin treatment next week.
Kristen P. 5/14/2020 - Melissa is the BEST!!! I just love her. She has such a fun attitude, she really loves doing hair and she makes you look and feel the best that you can. I've been getting my hair done by her for the past few years and she just does great work. She gives you a consistent cut and style when you know exactly what you want and she is ready to try something new to help you break out of your style rut when you just want a change.
NaturallyCurly.com 8/9/2018 - I've been to several salons in the Austin area over the past 20 years, and FINALLY I have found what I think is the best: Melissa Mercado at Salon Republic. She KNOWS curly hair. She takes time to get to know my curls and their pattern and she just has a "vision" of the right cut for maximizing my curls and what looks good on me. (Plus, she's as sweet as can be and SO cool.) Give her a try.
Karthika, R. 10/28/2016 - Got my hair colored for the first time & the experience was super cool! I was excited to wait and see the final color effect & confident that my hair was in the hands of one of most experienced & acclaimed hair stylist. Melissa totally understands the anxiety of people who walk in first time to get their hair colored! Professional, polite & friendly hair stylist definitely worth the money & time!
Dev V. 6/16/2015 - Melissa Mercado at Salon Republic is Fabulous!!! I am really impressed with her professionalism. She started with a Real Consultation....Image that! I thought "those" were out of style or just never ever happened. Melissa asked the right questions and actually "looked" at my hair before telling me what she thought I needed. After much discussion and agreement, she mixed, applied and conversed amicably. The end result???? Gorgeous! LOL! I am truly pleased, ecstatic! My husband Loved the color and the cut. I will definitely return. Extremely Happy Customer!
S.L. 5/21/2015 - My stylist, Melissa Mercado, does a fantastic job every time. I followed her from her previous salon, because she always gives me a great time and wonderful look. Whether I am feeling adventurous or more buttoned-down, she always makes sure I leave looking and feeling my best. I adore her!
Micheal Ivy 3/2/2014 - I followed my stylist, Melissa Mercado, formerly from Kisma, to her own hair studio in Salon Republic. She has been cutting my hair for a couple of years now and I can't imagine anyone else laying their hands on my scalp! She is very thorough and conscientious, instinctively knowing what will work best for you. She is located in Studio 156. Call for an appointment at 1-512-433-9901.
