I came to Salon Mink after trying four other places in the area. I don't have difficult hair in any way, so I'm not sure why I kept getting bad hair cuts! Anyway, enough negativity; let's get to the good stuff. I'm trying to grow my hair out, and it's at the short bob stage. I was running errands one morning and decided to stop at Salon Mink to see if they had any walk-in appointments available, and they did. That's how I ended up as one of Ashley's clients. I love her! She gave me exactly what I wanted, and continues to do so as she helps me grow out my short cut. She even gives me what I want when I don't know that's what I want -- I went in for a neck trim one morning and sullenly asked for her to "just cut it all off." Instead of proceeding, she said "did you just go through a breakup? Because I don't think you actually want to go short again." Of course, she was right on both counts.I've only had haircuts and single process color done by Ashley, but I have no complaints about either. She takes her time with me and is very meticulous when separating out the gray streak I have in the front of my hair during coloring, so I can keep my Rogue-like appearance intact. I've referred two classmates to her, and they are both pleased with her work as well. More...
Erick is always consistent. Great experience everytime.
Ashley did a perfect job at highlighting/balayage my hair! I couldn’t be happier with my results and overall it was a great experience from the punctuality to the overall experience I will definitely be back again! Ivana
Rebecca is the most professional hair stylist I have ever met. Each time Ive seen her she gives me the color that I absolutely love! ! Rebecca is as sweet as can be and just an absolute sweetheart! I feel very comfortable sending others to her because I have nothing but wonderful things to say about her! I am happy and grateful to have some an amazing hairdresser near me!Thank You Rebecca for being the BEST hairdresser in the world! More...
Always a pleasant experience!!!
I've been going to Mink for 2 years now. I will never go anywhere else!! Everyone there is beyond talented!! Very welcoming, and accommodating! ! I personally go to Emily! Either way, you wont be disappointed!! More...
Salon MINK happens to be one of the most friendly, hospitable environments in the SMTX. Erick Suarez is my Barber and he does an amazing job at making sure he keeps me lookin fresh. Absolutely recommend for beard trims and kids cuts!! Thank you my guy for keepin it real. -Rod More...
Katie is the best! I went from light brown to red and I’m so happy with how my hair turned out, will definitely be back.
SARAH IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Great hair dresser!! I've been getting my hair done with her for the past 2 years! She saved my hair from being burnt and thin. We went from a raggity gross brown/ silver to the blonde that I am now! I even trust her with my extensions. Ask for Sara you wont be disappointed. Salon is beautiful and plays great music :) 15/10 recommend. Great place, I live in Austin now and still make the commute to San Marcos! More...
I LOVE my new Blonde hair! Ashley set me straight! The salon is adorable, the staff are all so friendly and make you feel very comfortable. And can we discuss a MINKmosa... YUM! Cheers and Thank You! More...
I recommend it all. It’s definitely a one stop shop for fashion, style, and relaxation. From the hospitality to the conversations, I would have to say, it feels like family.
Paulette did everything that I asked for. She was always making sure that I was comfortable and was very patient with me. I recommend Paulette and Mink salon ! I will definitely be coming back! I went for a partial balayage and a trim. My hair turned out great. Thank you Paulette! More...
This was the first salon in San Marcos i've been to and it was very stylish and fun. Becca was my hairdresser and she was amazing ! !!! She got my hair from a green/blue ash color to a pretty caramel/brown highlight duo. I would recommend Mink to all my family and friends and I will definitely be back ! More...
Sarah Lamb always does an amazing job! She is such a delight.
Katie was friendly, knowledgeable, and did a really nice job cutting my hair. I will definitely be returning.
Nice staff very friendly great atmosphere i enjoyed my visit
Salon Mink is a staple in our San Marcos community! A safe haven for all LGBTQ ️ Acceptance of all people no matter what and respect given when respect is earned. Absolutely no negative and unfair feedback will be tolerated towards this family owned and much loved business that has served our special community for years. More...
I have been getting my eyelashes done by Lara for about 6 months now. She is very talented and I have never received so many compliments on how bright and pretty my eyes look! I had previously tried various mascaras and applications, but could never quite get the desired look. As a bonus, I don’t have to mess with mascara and eye makeup remover anymore! I highly recommend Lara and Salon Mink for beauty services! More...
I have been getting lash extensions from Lara for a few months now and I've never disappointed with her work! She does an amazing job, and really takes her time when applying my lashes so I know the health of my natural lash is also being maintained. She is very realistic and will educate you on the health of your natural lashes so you know which route is best for you before even applying the extensions. I've been getting extensions for years and have never experienced this, it really shows how much she cares about her clients and their happiness. Never letting anyone else do my lashes ever again! If you're looking for beautiful lash extensions that are almost mistakable for your real lashes, Lara's your girl!! More...
Great people and great cuts
Best place ever staff wonderful. Rebecca she's the best love this place
Katie just cut, colored, and styled my hair! I showed her a few pictures and she knew exactly what I was wanting! She even helped me picked how toned of a look I wanted and was spot on with the shade. So happy and definitely recommend this salon for anyone wanting a good hair style in a fun, cute atmosphere! More...

Romy did an amazing job and gave me exactly what I wanted!
Samantha did an awesome job on my hair I'll def be back!
Cory is the best! I love my short Spunky Haircut.
Very professional!! And focus on you and what you want. Paulette is awesome!
Romy is an amazing stylist and person. This is my second time going to Salon Mink and I’ll continue coming back to Romy for all my hair highlights and cuts. I love how conscientious she is about listening to her clients and trying her best to work with their desires and hair types. Thank you for making me feel beautiful! More...
I've been going to this place for three years now. I was so scared to go to an unfamiliar hair salon when I first moved to San Marcos but they never disappoint. It's a very cool place and the stylists and owner are very friendly. More...
I love love love this salon. I had trust issues with my hair even though I only get it trimmed. Emily cut my hair so perfectly. I walk in and get a mimosa, then a shampoo scalp massage! She always brushes out my hair and uses nice products. Then she offers to straighten or curly my hair. It makes the price sooooo worth it. I love going to get my hair done now, it's like a lottle pamper session. Sam cuts my moms hair, which is super fine and short. My mom has never loved a haircut so much. Laura does waxing and she's freaking awesome. I don't go anywhere else for any on my salon needs. Highly reccomend! More...
Love! Went in for subtle Carmel highlights and a light trim, Katie my stylist did an amazing job! She listened to exactly what I wanted! She gave amazing customer service!! I keep my beauty regimen kinda low maintenance so she even gave me a few tips and recommend some good products! Will definitely be going back for my touch ups and trims! (:Oh and this was my second visit with mink! The first time I just went in for a trim like 4 months ago. Romy cut my hair and she did a really good job! Plus she was super nice! More...
Romy helped me get the color and look I was going for. So happy to show off my hair now. This was my first visit to MINK. Everyone was very welcoming and I am impressed by their unique vibe and talent. Thank you!
Best stylists and mens haircuts in town, see Erick S. For a clean fade and lineup, and he does straight razor! Stop off to get a massage to! Schedule your appointment at least 3 days in advance, these guys and gals stay booked! More...
Katie was amazing
10/10. I can't recommend MINK enough. I had eyelash extensions done by Lara last week for the first time ever. Unfortunately, I had a bad reaction to the surgical adhesive. When I messaged this page, she instantly got back with me and let me come in *after hours* to have them removed. Though the experience was not ideal, Lara handled everything incredibly professionally and was so calm and sweet the entire time. She even reached out to me the following day to check on me. They have definitely gained me as a customer for life - overall, excellent service, rad atmosphere. More...
My whole family thinks Salon Mink is FABULOUS! From the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by the always friendly Saidat, you know you are in good hands. My husband and sons enjoy the relaxing straight razor shaves from Erick after their haircuts. Lara makes my eyes "sparkle" with her lash extensions. Samantha does a fantastic job of highlighting and cutting my waist length hair (and doesn't even complain about how long it takes! :) When I got married last year, they took care of not only my family, but all the bridesmaids too - hair & makeup. They made us all look more beautiful than we could ever have imagined - and, with 40+ year-old women, that's saying something! The only thing better, though, than their style and service, are the people that work there. Everyone is warm and outgoing, and make you feel valued and respected every time you step through their door. Corey has created a wonderful ambiance of friendship and family at Mink. It's a gem I'm glad I found! More...
Rebecca is the best hairdresser I’ve ever had in my life, I was dealing with a scalp condition and Rebecca never made me feel insecure about it and was extremely knowledgeable about my condition and ways I can help it out! I came back to her for the second time today wanting to get my haircut short for the first time in 2 years I was nervous about what to get and I have to say Rebecca walked me through everything and I could tell she loves what she does. I am 100% happy with my haircut today and how she helped me out so much. I would literally recommend her to anybody that asks me who is a reliably stylist!!! I would’ve given more that 5 starts she is amazing and I will not go to anyone but her!!! Thank you Rabecca! More...
I hadn't had my hair cut in about a year and have always been picky about who I let cut my hair. after reading reviews I decided to check this place out. I called on a Saturday and got in within a couple of hours. Katie did an amazing job and I left feeling brand new. Everyone was very sweet from the moment I walked in. Absolutely would recommend this place to everyone. More...
Great salon! The level of professionalism alone is worth the extra expense of going to this salon versus a super cut place.
Awesome experience going here ! Romy always does an amazing job and will not go anywhere else :) everyone here is so nice and accommodates the customer to what they want or what they think is best for them! 5 stars!
My favorite salon! They always do exactly what I’m hoping to achieve. Everyone here is so friendly and sweet.
As a hairdresser's daughter no one touches my hair normally. Romy did an amazing job on my hair giving it new life with a great color and cut. Definitely my go to person now.
Ashley is amazing! She always has an amazing happy attitude (everyone at the salon is always so happy and friendly every time I come in) and takes AMAZING care when doing my hair! She never rushes and always checks to make sure I am getting exactly what I want! More...
I love this place , Paulette is amazing. She has been cutting and coloring my hair for almost 3 years. Hair is important to me and she always has done a great job . Thank y’all for the great customer from everyone . More...
Amber Lehua Lunsford
Got an amazing haircut from Romy! They cut and styled EXACTLY how I wanted it. I have never had that in my entire life. Also they had such a caring and nurturing serviceful mannerism I could feel the good vibes when they were washing my hair. Also they had great intuition about my communication, because sometimes I want to talk and sometimes I just want to be silent and they were able to understand by my body language which one I was feeling. So happy. More...
Ask for Corey if you want an amazing color or cut. He really listens and gives you exactly what you want done. He matched my hair color perfectly and it came out looking vibrant and feeling healthy. I'm pretty picky about how much of my hair gets cut off and he was so understanding and cut exactly how much I wanted. More...
I can’t say enough great things about this Salon, the atmosphere, and my stylist Samantha Endres! I will never go anywhere else
EMILY IS AMAZING ! She always makes me feel so beautiful by the time I leave the salon. She has done my hair exactly how I imagined it! She’s so sweet and makes me feel relaxed. I drive all the way from North Austin, just so I can have Emily do my hair!! She’s fabulous & I won’t have anyone else touch my hair, now that I have found her. Thank you Emily for making me feel beautiful, always! More...
Ashley was wonderful! I came in ready for a new look and she was more than accommodating. Super professional, super sweet and did a killer job!
Yesterday I went to MINK for the first time ever. i got a haircut from Katie Blackshear and I am so incredibly happy with the results of my haircut- probably the only haircut i have ever truly been happy with. Highly recommend!
I love it
Love this place!
I love mink. Free beer and a great haircut, what more can you ask for. Emily Galvin has consistently given me the best haircut over the last 2 years.
Called them yesterday on 2/13/19 and they got me an appointment faster than Greased Lightning! Seriously I got an appointment 30 min later! Side note: I'm a man with longer hair so I usually go to a barber but me being 1000 miles + away from my old high school barber. I needed a new barber/ stylist. And I love my old barber, but Katie Blackshear (the stylist who cut my hair) gave him a run for his money, seriously! I honestly got one of the best haircuts of my life. Katie made me feel great! She kept me in the loop as she was cutting, informed me on proper hair care and shared tips and tricks with me to help my curls and waves. I've never been more comfortable in a salon! They offer drinks, free trims for clients. The place is a gem, & Katie got me all luxurious and fresh feeling :) all in all, probably the best haircut experience I've ever had! Definitely recommend this place, and ask for Katie! More...
Let me tell u guys..this salon is a 5 star salon. I drove an hr and a half to see Paulette for the 1st time and she did a great job especially when i just showed her a picture and it came out the way i wanted. My kids and husband loved it!! Thanks Paulette SHOUTOUT 2 U GIRL ❤❤ More...
I got a cut and partial balayage done by Katie Blackshear and she did a fantastic job!! I will definitely be returning to see her. The staff and ambiance is wonderful as well!! Thanks again, Katie! More...
Loved Everything about this place! Loved my haircut from Paulette. She's wonderful. :)
I have been going to MINK for many years and always leave looking like a beauty queen! Happy 11yrs MINK!! You guys rock!
I love this place. Their work, attitude and patience are the best. I take my Mom there. She has severe dementia. Everyone talks to her and treats her so wonderfully. I rarely get my hair cut but when I do it is just a trim to get the dead ends off. This is one of the few places I feel I can get her hair and mine done at the same time. I normally have her attached to my hip so to speak. This past Christmas my husband's office Christmas party was a vintage Hollywood theme. I looked up how to do victory curls on the net. Very quickly realized this wasn't something this tomboy could do and instantly felt so bad for all the women that had to do that ever morning in their day. Mink did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup that we won a free night at the Fairmont in Austin. If I could give them more stars I would. More...
It's been 11 years and my love for Salon Mink & Corey Casey has not faded. Even though I moved 1,800 miles away to NYC, I still find myself back at Salon Mink at least once, if not twice, a year for highlights and a trim. It's hard to find a hairstylist you love and trust so you don't want to let that go regardless of the road blocks or long commute. Plus, hair is SO expensive in NYC!!I have long, fine hair and have pretty much been doing the same variation of highlights and cut since I was a teen, just more natural looking over the years. Corey was the person I was recommended to by a coworker because he's especially great with long hair, and I have been loyal to him since. Except for two appts here in NYC where I sadly couldn't make it back to San Marvelous. But shhhhh!!I have seen the salon grow from the size of one store front to two when the neighboring business closed. Their offerings as well as chair count have expanded over the years as well. In addition to haircuts and hair color, they also offer hair extensions, makeup applications, eyelash extensions, waxing, and even massage! The look of the salon has also blossomed since it's 2008 opening. Salon Mink just keeps getting bigger, better and more beautiful as time goes on. I have only continued high expectations in the future. Keep being fabulous, Salon Mink! More...
Katie did a wonderful job with my daughters color treatment. We loved it! Only thing I would change is for the stylist to have given the option of temporary or permanent color as the color only lasted less than 2 weeks. We followed all care instructions as well. We will go back, we now know to ask more specific questions. More...
I love Salon MINK! I use to go to a hairdresser across the street who was way behind the times when it came to color and modern cuts. My Mother recommended me to Corey Casey at MINK. Corey is amazing at what he does. Not only does he really listen to you as a client but he can also can recommend ideas to you if your like me and don’t have a clue what you want to do to your hair sometimes. The environment at the salon is very friendly and inviting. You get a good vibe about MINK from the moment you walk in the door. This salon is full of talented hairdressers! So go ahead and make an appointment because once you do you will be hooked like me! (: More...
If you ain’t getting your hair done at Mink you ain’t getting your hair done ♀️ ♀️ such a fun welcoming environment with an incredibly talented staff! Sarah is like a color goddess and she always leaves me feeling like a queen More...
Corey has been doing my color and cuts for over 5 years , People ask all of the time where I get my hair done !, I’m a walking advertisement for this salon ,,perhaps a commission Love this place ❤️
Kassidy Lyn Reinagel
Mink is by far the best salon I have been to! The atmosphere and the staff is unlike any around! I don’t normally trust people with my hair but Ashely is incredible and she never fails to make me feel more confident and beautiful than ever! 10/10 would definitely recommend Mink! More...
Lexi Peters Ruiz
Corey is amazing at what he does. Always love my hair. Been going to Corey for a VERY long time and I’ve never been disappointed. ❤️
They have best salon in Sanmarcos staff very friendly and outgoing
I love how easy and fast I was able to book an appointment! The receptionist is so sweet and social, loved her! Also, have gone here twice now and both times I had great service! Paulette did an amazing job! Recommend her for sure. She's so nice and knows what she's doing. My hair is so soft even with the bleaching, which is amazing. Thank you girl! Will be back again. More...
This is my favorite salon the whole staff are wonderful they always make my hair look amazing.
Ashley got me in SUPER last minute to save my extensions after a terrible ACL experience. She consistently made sure I was comfortable and that I was on board with her game plan to bring my hair and extensions back to life. Would recommend her to ANYONE!
I had an amazing experience with Emily! This was the first time to have my hair colored and she did an amazing job! I was nervous to see the end result, but she talked me through every step and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! She is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and achieved the result I was looking for. I will definitely be back More...
I got my hair cut and colored by Paulette today, and I couldn’t be more pleased by the results! Paulette was very friendly, and she did a wonderful job. I was pleased by how thorough she was. This was my first time at MINK, and I doubt it will be my last. More...
Amber Lynn Stork
Emily did my color and cut! She was awesome. She even had courtesy to call me let me know she was running a little behind. She is very warm and welcoming and explains everything along the way! My hair turned out just like the picture I showed her. I’m glad I finally found a hair stylist that I love More...
First off let me just say that this place is amazing. Extremely professional and knowledgeable about all the up to date cuts, colors and styles. Now moving on to the amazing Lara who keeps my lashes on point. This woman is a genius at her craft. I get a minimum of 3 compliments daily on my lashes and I'm not the most approachable looking person. I'm gorgeous and the lashes play a major roll. So to the child who obviously hasn't had a TRUE professional extension experience I feel sorry for you. Not just because you are an angry soul and can't even correctly spell PUBIC hair correctly, but because I doubt anyone could make you happy. I've personally spent years and tons of cash on idiots that truly did a terrible job. After almost giving up on extensions all together, I was referred to Lara. I will never go to anyone else. More...
Sarah was the best!! I feel so brand new.
This salon was awesome!! Ashley did my hair and I love it!! She specializes in blond and she took me from being brassy brown to healthy gorgeous blond! She took her time and told me about the Amica products they use and I’m so excited to use them! The staff was friendly and I will be bringing my daughter in to see her!!! More...
Worked me in at the last minute, great products and service.
Amazing work and attention to detail, thank you.
I’ve had an amazing experience every time I’ve walked in the doors at MINK salon. Lara does an amazing job at lash extensions. I highly recommend anyone wanting lash extensions to check her out!! More...
Paulette is absolutely amazing! I showed her a few photos of what I would like and she delivered perfectly! Thank you so much!!
Samantha is the best! She always gets whatever blonde color I'm wanting exact, every time! So sweet and very knowledgeable! I don't know what I'm going to do without her now that I've moved! More...
If you’re looking around or thinking about getting lash extensions look no further than Lara at MINK Salon. My lashes truly were so much more than I expected. I got these luscious lash extensions for my recent destination wedding and honeymoon in Costa Rica and they held up and then some! I went swimming through rough ocean waves, went snorkeling, swam in waterfalls, went horseback riding, rode a catamaran, enjoyed days on the beach, and oh yeah...got married, ALL without losing a lash!!! Amazing work!! I even came back home and rode my bike several times with them still looking lovely. I washed my face of course and touched them up in the morning and before going out, and they always looked perfect. I felt beautiful, and I can’t wait to get them again someday. They’d be absolutely perfect for any occasion. More...
I had a 30 minute message and a hair cut and the salon staff was fabulous. I have never had a message before and Tori was so wonderful. Palette was my stylist and she did an amazing job on my hair. I recommend Mink to everyone who want a great salon experience. Next time I’m getting an hour message as well as a hair style!!! More...
Go see Lara Claire, she is amazing!
Every time I get a cut here it is great. I recommend Paulette!
I just want to say I will never go anywhere else it took me 2 years to try this place out and when I finally went in the place and staff blew me away! Salome is amazing I’ve gone to her twice now and she does such an amazing job both times I’ve received so many compliments on my hair even months after. More...
AMAZING !!! So friendly and helpful. My mom and I absolutely love our new haircuts. My mom has finally found a place she can go to. And so have I. Definitely coming back. Thank you so much for the great service. More...
I WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!!I just moved to the area and I got so lucky deciding to go to salon mink! The salon is so cute and fun and everyone is so welcoming. I called to make a last minute appointment and they were so accommodating and got me right in! Ashley did a partial balyage for me and I absolutely LOVE it!! She definitely knew what she was doing and did a fabulous job, I’m so obsessed with my knew color More...
I love Salon Mink! I just got my hair done by Corey and it's the best haircut I've ever had! That's saying a lot coming from a woman that has curly hair. He's certified in the Diva cutting method and I am blown away! I wish I would've done this years ago. Not only is he incredibly talented at his craft, Corey is also a super nice guy. Oh and also, I usually just leave the salon without getting my hair styled because I've never had a stylist that had any idea how to style my hair. Not this guy, he's truly a miracle worker. I'm so happy! More...
I usually have my hair done at a salon in my hometown so I was hesitant to switch to a new one, but Ashley did a fabulous job. Great service, great price, and most importantly my hair looks amazing. Absolutely will be back! More...
All of the staff were so friendly! The place was clean and so cute on the inside! Salome did an excellent job on my hair. I didn’t even have to show her a picture or anything ! I told her what I wanted and she gave it to me on the first try! I usually have to ask for my hair to be dyed again at salons because they never do it how I asked and showed them. I will DEFNITELY be back!! Thank you Salome and Salon Mink! More...
I loved my cut and the salon is super cute.
Emily is the bomb
I'm something of a salon hopper and Salon Mink is the best in the area! Rebecca gave my rough, grey, dry hair a beautiful color and flattering, modern cut. She's now my go-to hair stylist. Highly recommend for anyone in the San Marcos / Kyle / Buda area. The staff is friendly, timely and they always offer a glass of bubbly! More...
My girlfriend and I love coming here! We’ve recommended this place to several people. Staff is pretty young (college town) and they’re absolutely fabulous! Always polite and courteous. A bit pricey but hey! It’s a hair salon and they do a great job : ) More...
Sarah is amazing! I drive all the way from San Antonio just so she can color and cut my hair. Sometimes I've asked for some weird requests and she always comes through!
I have been coming here for some time now. I followed Emily Galvan from another establishment. The courtesy and environment is 5 stars in my book ever since!
I’ve been looking for a quality hair salon since moving to San Marcos. Though quality is the most important aspect to me, I am still a college student and on a college budget. I’m so glad I came across Salon Mink. The atmosphere is great, the stylists are kind and the prices are not bad at all. Paulette was my stylist for my first time, and she did an amazing job and was so friendly! I definitely recommend Salon Mink and Paulette. More...
Got a great haircut a few weeks ago.
Extraordinary service and great ambiance!
Sam is amazing. She does a great job n they are an amazing at their talent. Artist is what they are. They serve free wine, beer, and champagne.
Salon Mink is a 5 star salon. Love the quality, service and atmosphere. Corey's the best stylist in San Marcos!!!
Great service from the whole team. Emily and Paulette always do a good job. Highly recommended.
Went to Salon Mink for a men's haircut. Was offered a cold beverage upon arrival - I chose water, but could have selected sparkling water or even an alcoholic bebida. Emily cut my hair. She's good, and quick, too. After the trim she washed my hair and massaged my scalp. Very pleasant! I recommend the experience! More...
Me and my boyfriend came here for haircuts and it was great. Johnny is super nice and incredibly talented! I am very picky with my stylists and the way my hair is cut, but I am super happy that I came here and I will be coming back!
Sarah Richardson Dugas
Great stylists! Loved everything I’ve had and my kids have had done. Everyone is always friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wanted to find the best stylists in town.
Came here because my mom pressured me to cut my obnoxiously long, dark brown hair. Was really dreading it because I NEVER have a good experience at salons. I usually go in with instructions and the stylist/colorist does what they feel best. Usually ends with me crying in my car. So, of course, mother knows best. She comes to see Sam for her own hair cut/color. We arrived and were promptly greeted by a very sweet, engaging receptionist. Sam came to get me and listened to me complain about how I NEED to keep my long hair. I showed her some pictures of balayage highlights and expressed my fears of commitment. She put my mind at ease and the rest was history. SAM IS AWESOME. Can't wait to come back when I'm in town!! More...
Nice place. Good vibes. Erick Suarez hooked it up fast. Will definitely be back!
So I was super skeptical of going somewhere other than super cuts but decided to see Emily Galvan here. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to a super cuts!
Love MINK! Cory, Emily and the whole crew are fantastic! Costumer service is top notch and I’m always greeted with a smile and friendly conversation. This is one of the few places that can really do a great men’s fade and blend. However the best part isn’t the hair cut (which is amazing) but the shampoo and head massage by Emily. Seriously tho, I plan on going and paying her in between cuts just for her famous shampoo massage. Lordy! Also, I expected to pay well above what I do at my regular mom and pop barbershop, BUT was pleasantly surprised it was the same cost! Great value, great service, great stylists. More...
Wow! My first visit to get a short haircut and the experience was wonderful. Thank you Rebecca! I love my new short hair and the great customer service, I will go back and maybe get a shorter length.
I have been in the San Marcos for the past 3 years and have been going to the same barbershop since I have moved here. When I messaged my barber asking if he was available, he said he was away on vacation for the weekend and would not be available. I have always seen the Mink but for whatever reason never ventured in, probably because I already had a place where I was getting my haircut. But, boy was I blown away by EVERYTHING that the Mink offered. Once I walked in I felt as if I was home. Erick the Barber was the hairstylist for the day and Erick gave me the best haircut I have ever had in the past three years of my being in San Marcos. I have this HORRIBLE cowlick that has always been a problem for me but I don't know what Erick did but my cowlick now seems manageable and tamable. Thank you sir. There is never really a time when I would walk out and instantly SnapChat my hair but as soon as I walked out the FIRST THING I DID was SnapChat my new hair and share it will everyone. Will go back and will continue going back. Thank you Erick and CC for the amazing experience. More...
Got a massage from Torrie Blake, at mink. Was incredible. I'm writing this post a week after my massage and I can genuinely say I still have no pain whatsoever. The environment was extremely clean and relaxing with great scents! Everyone was super welcoming and polite upon arrival.My appointment was very flexible as well and had ample options for my availability.I will defiantly return to MINK for my next massage bb!! More...
Absolutely WONDERFUL place! I am so glad I found Corey and company. I have lived in Hays County for 18 years. I have been to salons from San Antonio to Austin and never could find a single stylist who could do both color and cut for curly hair and do it well. Corey hit the mark! The overall vibe of the salon is funky, relaxing, and a calm kind of groovy fun. Everyone was so friendly and the prices were right, too. I have found my new hair home. Thanks Salon Mink!!! More...
Chantelle Nicole Helton
Today was the first time I allowed someone other than my mom to do my hair. I had a lot of damage from coloring my hair myself and Samantha did a great job on making me feel comfortable! I love my cut and color! I will be coming back! Thank you Samantha! More...
Went in yesterday to get a fade and some beard work done with Erick. He absolutely killed it (in a good way). I left there happy and feeling/looking great! The staff there is very generous as well. I’ll definitely be going back. More...
I saw Emily at Salon MINK for a color and cut and she was amazing. I drove in from Austin on a recommendation from my daughter and it was well worth the drive to get just what I wanted in a friendly, fun atmosphere at a reasonable price. I'm sure there are great colorists/stylists in Austin, but once you find someone whom you trust, what's the point in going anywhere else? Emily took the time, and had the skills to get my color just right. Highly recommend! More...
I went to Mink today for the first time and my hair looks amazing! I had it cut and colored by Salo and not only did she do a genuinely wonderful job but she was very attentive, friendly and careful. My hair was really damaged and with her expertise she whipped it into shape just in time for my wedding next week. Forever grateful! More...
Romy cut and styled my hair and it’s the best haircut I’ve ever received! I appreciated the honest conversation and feedback about my typical hair routine and maintenance to make the inspiration photo work for me rather than directly copying the photo. I’m definitely schedung with Romy again. More...
Went to Salon Mink for the first time because I had heard good things. Long story short, I asked for 2 inches off at the most and I walked out with more than 6 inches cut off. The cut and style is pretty but clearly not what I asked for or wanted. ***UPDATE: Salon Mink reached out to me after I posted this review. They were extremely helpful and apologetic about what happened. They offered to rectify the situation and were very kind! Corey is awesome!*** More...
I have been getting wonderful haircuts by Sam E. She is new to the game with the heart and touch of a long time pro!! Mink is where you should go to get a great cut and color.
We love Emily! She does a GREaT job in my son's hair! He does theater and likes to look stylish, she pulls off whatever picture he brings in!
Salon Mink is the only place I ever go for mine and my boyfriends hair anymore. We personally have Emily Galvan style us and she is nothing short of amazing. She's efficient, helpful, and fun! I love the time that she takes to make sure we both look fly as fuck. If she moves I'm going with her no doubt, but the salon itself is something of wonder.

Sarah Lamb works MAGIC, I needed a big change but always loved my long hair. She cut 12 inches and did a beautiful balayage! I got so many compliments and have since sent more people her way because of how flawless her blending is! I was offered a drink upon arrival and felt right at home! I can’t wait to book my next appointment to go a little lighter!!! More...
Corey has always steered me in the right direction... whether it be a cut or color. I’ve been with him for years and he’s always done fabulous work!
Sarah is amazing with color! After seeing all her amazing work, she inspired me to color my hair after 10 years! Can’t thank her enough �
I LOVE this Salon and Sarah!! The salon it’s self is cute and has a great atmosphere for a pampering day out. The reason I keep coming back though is Sarah! !! She’s an amazing hair stylist who always listens to your concerns about your hair and fixes them it’s like hair magic! Love love!! More...
Love Mink Salon. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Corey does an awesome job with my color and cut. I always have folks ask me where i get my hair styled. I’m thrilled to tell them Mink Salon! More...
Corey always does an amazing job with my hair. The cut and color always come out better than I imagine. Love this place and the people!

For the last 4 years I have gone to Sarah at salon mink. This salon is absolutely amazing! Sarah has always gone above and beyond to meet my hair expectations. Anything from wedding hair and make up to a root touch up I’ve had it done here! Amazing! More...
Sarah does my hair and if fabulous! I drive all the way from San Antonio just so she can color and cut my hair. No matter what I ask for she comes through making me look great!
I have been a customer for a few years now. I am positive everytime I go I'm getting a great cut. Corey took my long hair on-hand been growing out and turned it into a cute pixie cut. I wouldn't trust anywhere else to make such a dramatic change. It looks amazing. I have also had amazing color experiences there as well. Not to mention I always am offered a beverage while I wait. More...
Paulette Gonzalez! !!! I know everyone here is amazing however Paulette is the best!! She listens to my interests and makes them happen! Thank you!!
I went into salon mink today and Im not going to lie i was a little nervous because i only have one person who does my hair. And with this haircut i just got i love it so much! Shoutout to Salome and Eric for the great service! The staff is very respectful, anyone want a great job for a any haircut i recommend salon mink! More...
No complaints, love it here! I've been here twice and no problems with either visit, employees are very sweet and welcoming :)
Had a really good first experience here. Very knowledgeable stylist and really enjoyed my haircut! Can't remember her first name, but her last name is kind of unforgettable. It's Lamb.
I had a great experience here! Romeo, my stylist, laced me up just right. He was very attentive, friendly, patient and professional. He took his time and made sure I was happy with my new cut. This is my new spot. I will definitely be back!Had another great experience at Mink! Emily Galvan, my new stylist, fully delivered. I got exactly what I wanted. Great service, staff and ambiance. Highly recommend. More...
Emily Galvan always fixes me up very nice.
Love the owners. Fun feel of the space.
Great experience with Sarah!
Sarah saved me! I had a terrible experience at another salon and she scooped me up last minute, did me a huge favor and took the time to ask what I wanted and put care into her work. I went from a terrible color job to a beautiful blonde. Definitely go to her! More...
Eric my man killed it. Not one thing to say negative. This is the guy I'm telling you San Marcos. Real handy with the straight blade as well.

I went to Mink Salon for eyelash extensions with Lara Herdeman and let me say, she's amazing! I showed Lara a picture of what I wanted my eyelashes to look and she replicated the look so beautifully! She really customized the look to my eyes and lashes. May I say I look like a celebrity now? Mink Salon has a comfortable room where eyelash extensions are done.Lara asked me what look I was going for, the types of cleansers I use on my face, so on, to assess which type of lashes to use! She does her craft with perfection. The eyelashes feel lightweight and will not damage your natural lashes. I highly recommend Lara and her attention to detail! More...
So I have never the best of luck when going for a short look! I've hear of Mink from a couple of people and decided to try it! I am absolutely satisfied!!!! My long thick boring hair was cut to a shoulder length bob and I love it! Samantha did a great job, I showed her exactly what I wanted and that's exactly what she did. I was shocked at first of the change but she styled it for me and it all came together. Love it!!!! More...
Priscilla Gamino Harrell
Romey is your girl ! She is so sweet and has the passion for hair. She is amazing in color, cut and does exactly how I want my hair ! She is also great with kid haircuts! Thank you to everyone at Mink Salon, they are AWESOME! More...
This is my favorite place to go and get my lashes done! I've been coming to Salon Mink and visiting Lara for almost a year now and there's nothing like pampering yourself with some beautiful lashes. They are inexpensive, last for the perfect amount of time, and visiting with Lara is always a joy. She's so accommodating, always lets me talk her ear off, and does such a great job. I get compliments on my lashes even weeks after getting them done and every time I refer them over to Lara because I know she will take care of them. Beautiful lashes accompanied by great service, I'm so happy I found this place. More...
I discovered this place on YELP reviews after a few terrible experiences at Sports Clips. I will never trust another salon with my hair ever again. This place is amazing and my stylist, Erick, has phenomenal skills and gives a perfect cut every time. I recommend this to anyone who is fed up with the local chain salons/barbers and want a stylist who actually cares about their clients. More...
Love Love Love! This guys are awesome, professional and everybody is so sweet! �
Today I went to get a haircut I was nervous about going short, but samantha made me feel comfortable and new exactly what I wanted. She completely did way better than what I wanted and I freaking love my hair so much. Girl at front was her sweet and offered a drink and popsicles for my kids that was nice. The whole entire experience was great I highly highly recommend this place to anyone. Thanks samantha�� More...
Anthony N Brittany Casas
Everyone is super friendly and makes sure your fully happy with your service! Emily also went over the products she used and kept me well informed about how everything works! Definitely found my place! Recommending to everyone � More...
Paulette hooks it up every time I have gone into Salon Mink, and I constantly love the outcome! Plus everyone is super nice and outgoing, it's great to just have a conversation there too!
I've come to Mink a few times and a gal named sarah does my hair. She's awesome!!!
Samantha Endres literally made me look and feel like a movie star!!!!
I usually go to Mink to get my hair done by the amazing Sarah Johnson, but today switched it up and I just had fun getting a wax. ..I didn't even know that was possible! Lara Clair is officially my new aesthetician. I also got the best welcome from the beautiful Saidat! I just love this place! Keep being bad asses, ladies � More...
Absolutely LOVE coming here!!! Everyone is so friendly and inviting. Sarah Lamb Johnson is absolutely the best and can make any hair dream a reality! !! Won't be going anywhere else but here � More...
The best in San Marcos! Paulette is especially good at color and styling!
They cut both my daughters hair and both girls got beautiful cuts. My youngest got this cut that was more detailed with needing scissors and electric trimmers to the underside and the lady that helped her was extremely detail oriented and took her time until it was just right. We will definitely be coming back here for all our other haircuts.. More...
20$ hair cuts and bad ass hair stylist with awesome message therapists with infinite drinks as you wait
I am currently going from brunette to blonde yesterday was my first appointment with Paulette and I had the best experience. I loved how my hair turned out she is a wonderful had great conversation . loved the overall I'd give it 10 ⭐️ More...
Thanks to Erick I have had the best taper fade of my life! He has experience cutting all types of hair. He is kind and very detailed with his work. With me being a perfectionist with my work I can most defiantly appreciate this. It's hard to find a good barber and I highly recommend him. More...
Danielle De Leon
The day i went to make my appointment i was greeted by the friendly/professional receptionist. The place is a really cool environment and everyone there is really friendly and makes you feel comfortable. Paulette is amazing, friendly, and sweet, she did such a great job with my hair (it was a mess lol). I definitely left happy and full of confidence i cant wait to go back. I definitely recommend this awesome salon! More...
Erick did the best job I have ever had. First time in along time that I have gotten a style and not just a buzz cut. He did an amazing job on my fade and my beard. I will definitely be back to see him! More...
Emily is amazing. I love the way my hair turned out plus she is super sweet. This salon is hands down the best one I've been to in a long time. The ladies at the front desk greet you with a smile and offers you a beverage as soon as you walk through the door. Will be coming back soon! More...
Paulette did a fantastic job with my hair! She's excellent at her job. Not only that, I was met with a great ambiance, professionalism, and champagne! The only reason I'm not giving five stars is actually because of Yelp. I made my appointment through the app (which was wonderfully convenient), but the cut and color price I was given when I booked was $35 under the actual price I was charged. It was absolutely worth it, so I didn't mind paying more than I had anticipated. However, it would have been preferable to get the actual price up front. Nevertheless, I will be back to see Paulette. More...
I've gotten my hair cut & styled here for years. Corey has never let me down. Chill positive vibes, great stylists & flexible schedules. I have and will continue to recommend MINK! More...
Lindsey Gregory Francis
Sarah is the best! Can't wait to get my Fall hair done next week :)
Everyone I've interacted with at Salon Mink has been incredibly friendly and accommodating, but my review is specifically for Paulette. I finally worked up the nerve to get a pixie cut, and she more than delivered. I didn't feel that I did a great job communicating what I wanted after my initial appointment on a Saturday, and she was able to get me back in as soon as they were open again the following Tuesday to fix my hair, free of charge. She cut my boyfriend's hair too, and he said he's happy to have finally found a stylist who will cut his hair the way he wants it. Five stars for two happy clients! More...
Very nice greeting when I walked in. Paulette was a mind reader (I'm bad at explaining what I want) very nice and personable. Easy to talk to & awesome cute! Extremely happy!!!! More...
I went Lara for Brazilian which is not the best experience in general but Lara makes it the least painful experience anyone could have. She is gentle and clean. I've been to her several times and it always the best Brazilian I've ever had. I've beenelse where and it has been super painful and uncomfortable. Lara makes it the easiest and best by far. A thousand out of a hundred by far! More...
I love love this place! I wait to come to Texas to get my hair done and I live in North Carolina! ❤️❤️
True artists at work here!!! Best haircut ever :)
MINK always does an amazing job! I have been to several different people there and loved every one!
Nice and relaxing day having some great down time at The Mink Salon. The staff is sweet and friendly, Paulette does a great job styling and coloring my hair!!
I've been looking for a great salon since moving here and I found it at Salon Mink! Everyone was so friendly and sweet. I had Emily and she did an AMAZING job. She was very patient with me while I took time to explain to her what I was thinking of doing and she executed it perfectly. I highly suggest going here :) More...
Eric is a genius. Needed a haircut and a beard trim and he went beyond my expectations! He was patient with me when I asked him to do a little more when trimming my beard, something I'm very proud of, but he took excellent care of it! The receptionist was warm, took great care of us, we got complimentary drinks, and ALL of this at an extremely reasonable price! They have a returning customer in me, no more driving to New Braunfels for a haircut! More...
Madelyne M. Bednorz
Tori is AWESOME at massage! Made me feel comfortable and relaxed! :) But I would not recommend the facial though - the products did not smell good at all.
This salon goes a great job. My husband and I both go here. Sarah does a great "color" on gray hair!
Great place to get a haircut! Emily does an outstanding job with guys cuts, and makes it easy to get the style you're after.
Sarah Anne Sosa
Paulette did my cut and color. She is amazing and she did a great job! I keep getting complimented on my hair. I will be back. The mimosas were nice, too!
Kelsey Lynn Flessner
thank you Emily! Today I got the best haircut I have ever had and I'm so obsessed with it!
I was truly blown away by the level of service at this salon. They got me in right away and squeezed a mini facial in the mix and made sure I had a cold drink in my hand. Joey was so great she listened to what I thought and gave me her feedback and then executed cut and color perfectly. I didn't want to leave! More...
This is one of the best salons I have ever been to. I was referred to Corey, and he was so knowledgable. The atmosphere was amazing, I always was asked if I needed a refill on my drink, and every hairstylist talked to me to make me feel at home. I highly recommend salon mink to anyone and everyone! More...
This salon is great. You can book appointments online, the staff is super sweet and attentive and the hair products are sold at a reasonable price. Emily cuts me and my husbands hair and we adore her. She asks lots of questions to get to know our preferences and styles. Best salon in town! More...
I live in San Marcos an have for 2 years now and have driven all over trying to find a great hair salon. I've found a few I liked but were costing me outrageous amounts of money. Mink is the perfect salon to get exactly what you want for the best price you could ask for. Thank y'all and can't wait to come back and see y'all again. More...
I have lived in five states and paid considerably more for a cut and style, but have never had a better haircut than the ones I get from Corey Casey at Mink
Great place to have your wife's hair "Did" because they offer you an alcoholic beverage while you wait on The Wifie! She likes how they blow dry her hair and you get a Drink!
Salon Mink did an amazing job with my daughter's hair. We didn't realize that they also do black hair and were pleasantly surprised that they not only were able to do her "up do" for prom but did an outstanding job! We were very happy!
I experienced my first massage here, and the girl was awesome! I had been having sever back pain for a couple of days and after leaving I felt so much better! And I couldn't beat the pricing of a dollar per minute! The massage room was clean, tranquil, and very relaxing. Without a doubt I'll be back More...
Today I received lash extensions from Lara and was AMAZED at the result. She is friendly, extremely thorough, and took the time to find out what style would work best for me. She did a beautiful job. I kept getting compliments from co-workers who were incredulous that my lash extensions looked so full, long, AND natural. Lara fixed what mother nature overlooked and I will be back. More...
Michelle N Erik Frey
Ray Reeves is ah-mazing!!!!! I am a naturally brassy brunette with a sassy stacked bob. I'm terrified of seeing a new stylist, but Ray is the best! I came in 6 weeks after my first visit and my hair still looked great!! Ray is a genius with color, talented with his cuts and pays attention as he makes sure his clients are happy. And his mustache is the best EVER!!!! More...
I went in for the first time and had my hair cut and highlighted by the uber fabulous Ray! I was a little nervous, and all for no reason. Ray listened when he asked what I wanted and did exactly what he said he was going to do, but better! I left feeling, and looking like, a million bucks. He has earned my daughter's trust and now mine. I will happily drive from Schertz to SM to get my hair done! And ask him about the cosmetology program the salon is sponsoring through the high school. Salon Mink is helping shape the future of local students as well as beautifying those in San Marcos. Bonus!! More...
MINK is my absolute favorite place to get my hair done. Jade does my hair and I will never be happy anywhere else anymore. She is amazing! They offer you drinks while you wait, they are all so sweet, and they make sure that you are happy before you leave the salon. Love love love! More...
MINK made my work day / birthday perfect! Sarah Lamb cut and styled my hair and she did an incredible job. I'm definitely coming back ❤️
I've always had trouble trusting people with my hair. Jade I can trust 100% I'll be leaving San Marcos soon but I will make the drive to come to Mink!!!
I love Corey! Salon Mink is the best salon I've been to, hands down! Great customer service and my haircut always turns out better than I could have imagined! I recommend Salon Mink 100% Also, the option to schedule an appointment through Yelp is so convenient and easy, I love it!!! More...
Kaylen did a great job on my full highlight. I have dirty blonde hair and like to have highlights put in when my roots start to get really brown. She did exactly what I wanted in about 2 hours for a great price! Mink is clean and stylish & all the stylists seem to be giving each client great hair. I would definitely recommend. More...
Love it. Ray is the owner and founder and he cuts and styles my hair. It was a long time since I had a hair cut I enjoyed and I really enjoyed it. My family was in town for a wedding and I received multiple compliments. More...
massage is excellent and professional
For over 2 years now I have been coming to Salon Mink. Although I live in Austin, I love coming to get my hair done here. The salon is very cute and comfortable and the service is superb ! Corey, the owner, does my hair most of the time, usually a dye and cut and my hair feels and looks absolutely amazing after. I always come prepared with pictures and some kind of idea of what I want and we talk about our options. I've done multiple colors before in one sitting and have been very pleased with the results! He's a great hair dresser and stylist and very easy to talk and connect with which makes the experience irreplaceable :)The staff is always very welcoming and friendly. They never forget to ask if you'd like a water, some champagne, magazines - basically anything to make you comfortable, which is much appreciated. There's always a good music selection on and great vibe throughout the salon. They offer several more services besides hair too - you just have to ask! More...
Every time I have gone to mink, be it a color, eyelash extensions or a cut it has always been absolutely amazing!!!!!!! Love the staff! They always remember me and we always have great conversation. Definitely best place to go to. I live in Austin and drive all the way to San Marcos for this place. You should too! More...
Just got my hair done by Joi!!! She is a Goddess among hairdressers!!! Love you!!!
I love love love Salon Mink! Ray even taught my 12 year old how to take care of his curly hair...and he listened! Fantastic salon!!
Kaylen has always done my hair exactly how I want it! My most recent hair endeavor was to try out ombré. I was super nervous, but it was so worth it! I absolutely LOVE it!!!!!
I always get my hair done here by Corey, so I figured he would know what to do with my hair for my wedding, and he did not disappoint! I have thick, wavy hair and a head piece that did not fit my hair and he made it work! He gave me a few unique ideas and some traditional, I went with the unique since that is more my style and it was absolutely perfect! I did not have my make up done here, as I did it myself so I can not comment on that. Wonderful service though! More...
When I started college I searched for a new salon that I would trust and one that was passionate about their profession. After a month or so I picked Salon Mink and can honestly say no one else outside of Salon Mink has cut my hair in 5 years. The staff have proven themselves time and time again to care about their clients and what they do and I recommend Mink to everyone who wants a dedicated salon with the most talented stylists. More...
They are the best place around, hands down, love MINK
They were attentive, professional, and clean. Most importantly hair feels great after the keratin treatment!
Martha Soliz Wright
They did an amazing job on my daughters hair and make up for my wedding day! Amazing staff and greeting when we walked in!
I am a longtime client of Salon Mink and it is absolutely the BEST!! Excellent atmosphere- complimentary beverages and very stylish locale. Staff are extremely professional and all exercise great customer service but maintain a very friendly, inviting, and chic aura at the same time. Quality and service just like any high dollar Austin boutique salon but for a much better price and with local San Marcos charm! You'll never find anyone intimidating or condescending that work here, everyone is super sweet and engaging. Communication is easy so it's simple to come in and get exactly what you ask for or to use a stylist's expertise to help you figure out what you want. I absolutely LOVE Corey Casey, he styled my hair for my wedding and is my go-to for cuts and color (and I'm pretty particular- low lights, high lights, the works) but I'm never unsatisfied and when I inevitably change my mind about what color or style I want at the next visit he always delivers 110%! And his prices are extremely reasonable given his amazing work! I also ADORE Amie Harding for eyelash extensions. I have been getting lash extensions for about three years now and she is WONDERFUL! If you've never gotten lash extensions, DO NOT HESITATE! It is absolutely the best beauty investment you can make. Entirely eliminates the need for mascara and cuts way down on the time for your makeup routine. You always look like you have fabulous eye makeup because you always have outstanding lashes! If you have gotten lash extensions previously then I assure you Amie is one of the best- her prices CANNOT BE BEAT. I promise, definitely the best deal you will find, I have never gotten such outstanding lashes at such a reasonable rate. And the quality is superb! I have had both good and bad lash experiences previously with different salons so I know what's out there and Amie is amazing. She listens to what you want, takes the time to consult with you thoroughly and you will never feel rushed through an appointment. She is very accommodating and the whole experience is incredibly relaxing, don't be surprised if you fall asleep. I recommend Salon Mink to anyone who's looking for the best without any reservation! More...
I went to Salon Mink in search of someone to do my bridal hair and makeup for my big day. My experience was a very friendly and accommodating one. The receptionist answered all of my questions and did everything she could to make sure my dates/times were worked into their schedules. They let me know what their standard pricing was for a bridal package (which even included a free makeup/hair trial run before my wedding). Both times, my hair and makeup took approximately 3 hours total to complete. Ray and Corey drove out to my venue to make me beautiful on my wedding day and it was nice to not have to worry about anything but sitting down and letting them work their magic. They were also helpful in keeping my mind off the ceremony while talking, making jokes and playing music while working. I felt at ease and was very happy with the final look. What else can a girl ask for on her special day? Keep up the great work Salon Mink! :) More...
Salon Mink was a great value and did a great job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. Cori did my hair, and he was so artful, nice, and accommodating.
I got a lot of compliments on the intricate work he did on the back of my head and involving a family pin I put in my hair. Sara did my makeup, and she did a good job, but after seeing all of my other girls get their makeup done, I would have preferred that Saidat had done it. Sara was really nice and professional, and it looked good, but Saidat was offering a lot more guidance to the girls, and she also seemed to understand more the look that I wanted. I also noticed in pictures that I had been over bronzed. However, I loved the whole experience! You can sip mimosas or sparkly water while they work, and the place has a great vibe and plenty of room to hang out if it is not your turn. They got my entire bridal party of 8 in and out in a few hours with hair and makeup.
We did have one negative experience though. One of the stylists (not sure which) cut off my maid of honor and told her that she would not finish doing her hair because she had to get to her next costumer. She looked fine, but the finished product was not as involved as what she had been hoping for, and she was paying for it afterall. We were pretty infuriated, but as soon as Saidat and Cori heard about it, they took over and Saidat did her hair to her satisfaction. Maybe that stylist was just having a bad day, but it was stress we did not need at that moment. So thank goodness the rest of the staff was so great! More...
I did not notice until I saw a picture of myself that my previous hair dresser was making my hair look like straw. When I asked her to help me make it look healthier, she didn't change how she colored my hair, rather, she sold me expensive shampoo and conditioner. My hair still looked like straw, but it smelled good.Then I found Corey at Salon Mink and he has helped make my hair look more a natural color and feel and look healthier. I've been going here the last three years and Corey and his staff are fantastic. I hesitate to recommend them for fear that it will be more difficult to get an appointment, but good service should be rewarded. More...
Love my new cut and color! Corey and Ray rock.
A girlfriend and I decided to book pedicures at Mink as a pampering/de-stressing session. As soon as we arrived, they offered us Perrier so we were immediately charmed. Then, they took us into a tiny room in the back of the salon that was painted gray (with a few pink embellishments). We sat right next to each other on a small corner sofa which was very comfy. The girl who gave me my pedicure was named Adrienne and she did an awesome job. For $35, we got (as the website says) a soak, nail care, massage, exfoliation mask, aromatherapy wrap, and polish. Just thinking about it now makes me want to go back and get another one. And my toes look great! If they could update the space in the back, I would be even more excited about it. Sadly, it did have kind of a closet-y feel. Update your space, you guys! You deserve it! More...
Loooove this place. Its always super hard to find a hair dresser you love. I have been going to see Corey Casey at Salon Mink since 2008 and even though I moved to Austin in 2009 I still go back go San Marcos to see Corey - you cannot get better quality!
After um-teen years since I have been pleased with haircuts, I gave Salon Mink a try this morning. I went in with "ZERO" expectations and came out on cloud 9! It is NOT just hair..it's an attitude and Romeo is a super sweet, super talented hair-genie! I love my hair, I am getting over the top compliments everywhere I go! Yes, yes...YES! Go see him, start looking uh-MAY-zing!! More...
If you are thinking about going to Salon Mink, go see ROMEO!!! He is awesome! I myself am a hair stylist in Austin and I will drive to San Marcos for Romeo to do my hair because he is the only person I trust with my hair! The salon itself is very nice and clean and has an awesome feel to it. I feel bad that Salon Mink has all bad reviews on yelp but has 50 FILTERED reviews that are all 5 stars. I love Salon Mink and everyone who works there and especially Romeo! He is great at cuts and color (he did my ombre) and he is very personable. More...
This place is great! I had the best haircut I've ever had here and my boyfriend loves getting his hair cut here too. I just brought a picture of what I wanted and she gave me exactly what I wanted! And she didn't take off more hair than I wanted, if anything It looked longer after she did my hair. I love the style of the salon and the five star service (ex. offered drinks while waiting). I definitely recommend this place! More...
I went for the first time today to get a hair cut. I have very long, curly, thick hair that usually presents a challenge to most stylists, but Romeo did such a great job. The atmosphere is more upscale than your usual San Marcos hair place and, the receptionist / scheduler was friendly and competent. At most salons the stylists seem to be more concerned with their lunch order than their client's hair, but here I felt like everyone who was in the chair had their stylists undivided attention. The cut was $10 more than I pay at my old place but I think it was a steal because Romeo did such a better job than my old stylist. I will definitely come back for a second try. More...
Awesome place and fabulous stylists! Best haircut ever!
(I'm sad to see that there are no positive reviews. I know first time reviews are often filtered until they make additional local reviews, so I thought mine might stay. Here's hoping.)Prior to coming to MINK, i had no regular stylist/barber/etc. After one appointment with Corey, I now have a permanent stylist with appointments every 6 weeks and cleanups in between. The salon looks great, the atmosphere is inviting, everyone I've interacted with has been fantastic, and I trust the advice I'm given there.If all of that weren't enough, I'm able to enjoy a number of beverages (I always opt for beer if I have the time) during my appointment.If you're looking for a stylist, be sure to stop by and give this salon a go. More...
I have very curly hair so I've always been very picky about getting my hair cut. After moving to San Marcos, I continued to drive back to Houston to get my hair done for about 5 years. Finally, I decided that I needed to find somebody local. Going to Salon Mink and getting Chelle to cut my hair was the best decision ever! She knows curly hair and did not disappoint! Not to mention she's one of the most friendly people I've ever met. If you have curly hair and are stressing about putting it into somebody's hands, I PROMISE you won't be let down!! More...
Not sure how the previous reviewer had a bad experience... Because Rochelle is AMAZING! I have been going to her for a little over a year now and I can't say a single bad thing, her waxing is always AMAZING and I can't help but leave with a huge smile on my face! AMAZING!
Quick, fast, AMAZING color! I love Amanda, I'm sad I had to move back to Illinois, I finally found a great Salon that had great products! I usually had a problem with my hair looking faded after a couple weeks; definitely didn't have a problem with that here! More...
I came here about a year ago. I had decided to get my hair cut short for the first time in my life. When you sign in for your appointment, they offer you a complimentary soda or glass of champagne (maybe more options now? ) ...very nice, and a first for me. I brought a few pictures from the internet so I could give my stylist an idea of what I did and did not want. She was pretty good at interpreting the kind of look I wanted. I was not sure if I had wanted bangs with my new hairstyle, so my stylist gave me a compromise with side-swept bangs, which I was content with. My stylist also gave me product recommendations, but I unfortunately couldn't remember any of the names. I got a cut, wash, and style for $45 when I went; if you do not want to invest that much, then look elsewhere. More...
Alex Wester at Solon Mink has been cutting my hair for the last six months and has done a super jub. She listens to the descriptions of my lifestyle, what I think I want for a hairstyle and then gives me a cut that really works. The Salon is conveniently located on Hopkins with plenty of parking. Staff are friendly and courteous. They also send reminders and thank-yous by e-mail, which is nice.One star off for the loud music, but that might be a generational thing. More...
I am very hard to please and have used every hair stylist in this town. I have found my place. Salon Mink has perfected the art of pampering. From the moment someone walks in they are treated like royalty. If I should ever move from here I will return for the happiness of my hair. More...
Corey has been cutting and highlighting my hair for the last year and he is awesome. My old stylist moved too far away and I hesitated to change to a new one but right from the first time onward he has done a fantastic job. I get a lot of compliments over my hair. The staff at Salon Mink are all very warm and friendly, and the furnishings are very hip. More...
i went here on a whim and ended up getting 11 inches cut off ( i know, sounds like irrational decision making!) but it ended up being a GREAT decision. alex, my hair stylist, worked magic on my long, dried out hair and turned it into a sleek and really cute short hair cut.She really is a great stylist! The salon is also big and airy, with lots of magazines and they offer you drinks when you come in. it was a great experience and i would recommend this place to anyone in SM! More...
Best in San Marcos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amanda is amazing! I go back and forth between bright blonde and natural highlights and she does them perfectly! I am very picky and she listens to exactly what I want and makes sure to take her time to make me happy I would recommend her to anyone. It is pricier than I have paid in the past but I have never been as happy with the results so it is worth it! More...
Salon Mink is awesome! Will for sure be continuing my business with them... The atmosphere is adorable. Brittany cut my hair, and did a fantastic job! I was super nervous about going short (cut probably around 4 inches off!), but she did great! Thank you Salon Mink :) More...

Mink is so cute; definitely the hippest salon in San Marcos and Corey is literally the best hair stylist I've ever had! He has never given me a bad haircut and I've recommended him to all my friends. I'll be moving to Houston soon and I plan to come back to get my haircut...he's just that good! More...
