AVA HASTEY, FOUNDER/OWNER AND STYLIST
Like so many of her like-minded, loyal clients, Ava is a native Texan who got to Austin just as soon as she could. A Wella Master Colorist and award-winning stylist, Ava has been in the business for more than 30 years. Starting out as a hair and make-up stylist in Dallas, Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York, she moved to Austin in 1981. Drawn to the city’s cultural climate, she soon developed a following among the fashion-conscious. She worked as a stylist for runway, television and the burgeoning film and recording industries. Soon she found herself backstage styling for performers as eclectic as Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughan and George Strait. She has owned two salons in Austin, mentored a myriad of the city’s stylists and frequently travels to New York and Paris, France to study the latest in cutting and coloring techniques.
Ava specializes in “editorial” hair for magazine fashion shoots. Her work has been featured in Tribeza, Rare and Austin Monthly. She also enjoys doing “ceremonial” hair for weddings and celebrity events. And her “less-is-more”, uncluttered approach will surely resonate with you.
Ava loves the rich, artistic culture that is nourished and supported here in Austin. It has allowed her to develop her own artistry with hair as her medium. Ava is also an avid volunteer, contributing to everything Austin, from AIDS Services to Zachary Scott Theatre.
