01 Feb Raw Hair Studio stands out among San Antonio Aveda salons
Situated along St. Mary’s Street in a historic home, Raw Hair Studio’s character is obvious from the first impression. Every detail is arranged to make clients feel special and pampered from the moment they walk in the door of this Aveda-concept salon. From the friendly receptionist ready to serve a warm, welcoming cup of tea to the scalp massage that begins every visit.
Raw Hair Studio offers a variety of personal beauty services including curly haircuts, color correction, ombre, balayage, Brazilian blowouts, highlights, facial waxing, VoMor hair extensions, and Nova Lash Eyelash Extensions.
The architectural details and eclectic furnishings of the salon reflect the wide range of personalities and talent on the Raw team that come together to make this salon such a success. A blend of experienced master stylists and fresh-faced junior stylists make Raw Hair Studio popular with not only clients, but with hair stylists as well.
Owner and Lead Educator Anna attracts top stylists by offering education and professional development opportunities. “We believe education is absolutely necessary to become a great stylist,” she said. “A strong staff of stylists, in turn, grows a strong following among our clients.”
When Raw opened in 2008, the vision for the salon was a relaxing environment where each client feels pampered and spoiled. That vision holds true today. From stress-relieving hand and scalp massages to the undivided attention of a highly trained stylist, every client is made to feel special.
Anna has spent her 18-year career working with Aveda products. This plant-based product line has a commitment to deliver high performance products with ingredients that are kind to the environment and also to support social and environmental improvement whenever possible.
“I wanted to bring something new to San Antonio,” she said. “Not only does Aveda create amazing products they give back to create better living environments for many of the communities that help produce the all-natural ingredients in their products.”
In keeping with the principle of giving back, the stylists at Raw put themselves aside and give back any way they can at volunteer events. “We also feel that pampering our guests each day is a way of giving back,” Anna said.
Raw is always on the cutting edge of the beauty industry, bringing new services to San Antonio, including Brazilian Blowouts. Whether your hair is curly or straight, the Brazilian Blowout de-frizzes, tames and creates a smooth, manageable surface for your hair, making it easier and quicker for you to style. With the use of sulfate-free shampoo, the Brazilian Blowout can last for up to 12 weeks. Right now, through the end of February, all Brazilian Blowouts are 50% off, making it a perfect time to get frizz-free hair for spring.
Another unique service is the FREE Raw Signature Blowout (a $40 value). It’s a great way to get to know Raw and its experienced stylists, and to get a feel for the salon. Got a special event? Or a date night? Let our stylists give you a Raw signature blowout — you’ll get a voluminous, frizz-free style that can last for up to 3 days. These free blowouts are based on stylist availability.
To make an appointment for a Brazilian Blowout, a Raw Signature Blowout, or any of our other services, please call 210.545.0729. We look forward to pampering you!
