Ember Ristau

Owner, Stylist, & Amateur Therapist

Hi Love! My name is Ember, originally from a small West Texas town but moved to the North Austin area in 2009 from Seattle, WA.

As a mom of two, I know exactly how important it is to feel special, pampered, and beautiful in a relaxing ambiance. I've designed my studio salon experience in a way that will leave you feeling uplifted, relaxed, and more confident than you've ever felt before.

I've been a stylist for over a decade and have never felt more connected with and inspired by my clients or my craft. I specialize in soft, natural looking dimensional color and blonding. I take great pride in the fact that I take numerous classes throughout the year to bring you the latest in trends and best of the best products in an approachable, non intimidating way.

I am often testing out the latest in beauty crazes. I'm on the pulse of all the great beauty products and procedures and can give you a few laughs with all my "experiments"!

I am a self professed food snob! I love trying out the latest foodie restaurants with swanky vibes & craft cocktails. When you come to the salon, I can give you all the must try spots while you sip on your glass of bubbly. 

I have this next level ability in giving advice and insight. I read people and situations like no one else I've met before, so I often get asked to weigh in on certain things or situations. I'm a problem solver by nature and I think the combo of the two lends to my special and unique approach to curate the perfect color & style for all my clients.

I'm excited to meet you!
