Gaga Salon: Austin Hair Salon

Katie has been in the hair artistry industry since 2007. She started her career apprenticing under a well known hair stylist, Albert Luiz, in Houston Texas. She worked under him for a year, and then independent within the salon for another 5 years. Katie opened her own business, Gaga Salon and has been very successful.

Katie recently moved to Austin to start a life with her husband and she is now accepting clients in Austin, Texas! Her passion is everything hair, but specializes in blondes and short women’s cuts. Katie enjoys making her clients feel and look great!  

In her free time she rescues dogs, eats anything with cheese, and loves the outdoors, and movies.  Katie is hands down one of the most experienced hair stylists in Austin Texas.

Katie Taylor is one of the best hair stylists in Austin Texas and the surrounding areas. She takes her time and makes a style personally just for her client. She is also a gifted colorist and make-up artist. One has to book ahead of time because she is busy but worth the wait! Katie is a real sweetheart! I have been her client since she got in this business. And I have been to many stylists in this area, including Austin.

Katie is a hair magician. I had been dying my hair with black boxed dye for 8 years and she got me to a natural medium to light brown balayage in one session. This was a miracle! I couldn’t believe how healthy and natural the color looked. Katie is my go to girl with all things hair and she never disappoints ? I’m now at my dream hair color that I never thought was possible thanks to her!

Katie is amazing! Not only is she super talented but she is super kind, a beautiful person inside and out. She has gotten my hair from brown to blonde, to purple to green to rose gold etc all within a year and my hair has remained healthy through it all. Any color I want and or style she achieves and it always comes out perfect and better than expected. We like to call her the hair goddess for a reason! Katie also has come to my rescue to fix my at “home hair dye jobs” or my at “hair home haircuts”and some how fixes my messes every time. She educates me on how to keep my hair styled, cleaned and healthy. She keeps my hair healthy and beautiful looking. I always leave her place of work with a smile on my face. Katie’s work environment breeds safety, happiness and has a colorful attitude which ensembles her character and what I always feel after leaving the salon. I highly recommend Katie & think that everyone should go and see her.

It's a shame that 5 stars is the best rating because I would give my experience 10 stars!!! Absolutely amazing experience! I felt comfortable talking with Katie and she gave me a great dye job and hair cut! Awesome atmosphere and very comfortable chairs. Katie is a very talented artist and I will return for another dye and haircut

Finding the Right Salon for Your Hair

Have you ever looked for a place to get your hair taken care of and wondered why there are so many? A haircut is just a haircut, right? Maybe at a barber shop, but not at a real salon. If you’re looking for hair care that can’t be matched, you need to come to a salon. It’s more than just a hair stylist spot or place for quick cuts. Salons take care of all your beauty needs and come equipped with full studios of equipment, tools, dyes and tints to make anyone’s hair flair with celebrity appeal. 

What’s included in a salon that you can’t get anywhere else? Why come to a Salon in the first place? What are the services that you can’t find anywhere but the highest class of salon in your city?

More Than a Trim

Haircuts are the most basic job that a salon can fulfill, so obviously, you want to go get one done somewhere quicker and cheaper, right? How often do they get it right, though? Do they take head shape, your face, your ears, your neck exposure, your fashion – your Choice into account? Or do they just start snipping and ask if they’ve gone too far?

Even basic haircuts at a salon hit different. Stylists will pick your brain for all the options on how you want to look and treat your hair like art to form it to your fashion choice. If you have none, but want something more satisfying, salon stylists will manage your hair with you and find the best cut that works for you. Standard sessions for cuts and styles range in price based on the length and quality of the hair. The longer the hair, the greater the care. But rush services are available, because sometimes you need to get moving fast and you can’t let your hair slow you down.

More Than just Color

Hair dyes are always a temporary measure. As long as your hair is growing, it is replacing itself and new, natural hair replaces the older touched-up hair. Many do-it-yourself kits omit essential steps or are made of harsh chemicals that, yes, change your hair color without any care or attention paid to the actual chemical damage being done. If you want to dress your hair up for the season, for an event or keep it toned for life, salons are the place to go.

At a proper salon, you can get simple dye jobs, for sure. Highlights can be done selectively or on full-head levels, and don’t just splash on a dash of color and send you away. Salons implement fiber-enhancing formulas to strengthen hair during the process so you leave with hair stronger than when you came in, as well as more fashionable. Rootwork is also available, so the color reaches all the way down to the hair that hasn’t even grown out yet, giving you a natural color. Glossing and Balayage treatments to give a boost to your natural color can also be offered, things that standard hair stylists or at-home kits can’t even attempt. 

More Than What you Came With

What if you don’t want to get rid of your hair or change it drastically? What if, instead of going somewhere to lose your hair, you could go somewhere to get some of it back? If hair growth and replacement were a thing that just took a single hour-long appointment, salons would have schedules booked for months in advance. The next best thing can still be done, however, with hair extensions and bond treatments. 

Hair extensions are among the easiest ways to add a lot of length to your current style, even past what your head can naturally grow. If you’ve reached the terminal length of your hair where it just can’t push out any more but know you can rock a look with longer, more luscious locks, hair extensions can add volume or length to any head of hair, and in any color. They can even substitute for highlights in thinner hair and restore years of age from natural thinning. Bond treatments are similar. Your hair gets damage from every day things like hot tools, color processes, and even direct sunlight, causing it to dry out and fray. Bond treatments help restore those broken bonds with simple, natural glues that hold the hair together and enrich it over time, turning once broken up and stringy messes into solid, flowing locks.

More Than You Think

Coming in to a high end salon is opening a door to a world of possibilities for your hair. You can either sit down and choose one form that fits your purpose for now, or you can go one step further. Salons only employ beauticians with the highest standards and knowledge of hair treatments. They don’t just know the process of what to add and when, how long or short to cut. They know hair, and if you give them time to know you, they’ll know exactly what you need.

Special styling gives salon artists a time and place to shine. They can work with your hair at its worst to transform it to its best with a mix of treatments and conditions in a single or set of session. By the end, you’ll have the hair you’ve always wanted, and will know how to keep it that way for good. Coming to a high end salon means you are automatically a high end customer who deserves to look their best. Scheduling a consultation with a stylist sets you up for a long term professional, and friendly, relationship with someone who will become the number one fan of your hair.

More Close Than you Might Realize

If you’re in the Austin area and you look up salons, you might be surprised to see how many there are around the city. Each one will have its own atmosphere, its own styles, and its own experts. Find your hair’s new favorite place today and begin the first day of your new look for life!

I am stunned at the precision and quality of Katie. She dyed and cut my hair and I’m surely not easy to please and I don’t leave reviews unless they are earned. My hair looks and feels fantastic. After receiving cut and color from other stylist the color would fade while they would sell me product that was supposed to make it not. I remember my scalp slightly burning at other salons. This was not the case with quality control of Gaga salon. She used top of line product on my hair and I can tell by the way it looks and feels that she genuinely cared about the aftermath of the work that she put into my cut and color. She did not try to sell me product afterwards and my hair is still bright blonde with the hippie shampoo that I use as opposed to a purple shampoo salons will sell you. I highly recommend her because in my honest opinion she is the best hair stylist I have come across in central Texas.

Katie was amazing! Scalp massage was wonderful and my cut and color was the best that I've had in years! I definitely recommend this hip comfortable and even entertaining salon.
Katie listened carefully and asked questions before she started cutting my hair. She did an outstanding job. Best haircut I’ve ever had!

Her shop is super clean and beautiful and She is genuine and sweet. Really enjoyed my visit and i came out with gorgeous hair. Win Win! 😃 I found my stylist! ❤️
10/10 would recommend to a homie. Katie is super sweet and paid attention to what I want. I haven’t gotten a cut in over a year and missed my blonde. She knocked it out of the park!

Had my first visit with Katie today and she was absolutely fantastic! Loved my color and cut, plus had a great time chatting away - not only does she do a great job she's also extremely personable and made the time fly. I think I found my new stylist!
Katie is WONDERFUL! Easy to be with and did a fantastic job cutting and coloring my hair. She has good intuition and an artistic eye! So glad I found her ! If you go to her you will be truly impressed⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
