This year for Fashion X Austin, Urban Betty did all of the hair for the annual kickoff event. The theme this year was "decades" and each hairstylist took a model and a decade and rocked out some amazing hair. The event was hosted at Speakeasy and featured Face Kandy for makeup and a multitude of Austin's most talented stylists to create the fashion for each look.

This year we have chosen to benefit Austin Classical Guitar, a non-profit organization that supports programs in over forty Austin area schools and in hundreds of schools around the world. Our goal is to raise $2,500 to senda student to college for one year through this program.

Last year for my honeymoon, I traveled to London and Paris for two weeks. Before going, several people gave me tips on how to style my hair and deal with power adapters and converters. Did I pay attention? No. And guess what? They were right. So hopefully, I can help a few people out there avoid the mistakes that I made and save yourself and your hot tools! Did I mention I ruined a curling iron and a Chi iron? Yep. This story gets a little...


With the new year upon us, its time to start taking extra care of those tresses.

There are so many options out there it’s no wonder most of us are a little lost when it comes to which product is the best and what works. I believe the answer is in the numbers. Here are top 10 most used and bought products by our salon guests at Urban Betty:


  • Name: Houston Puryear Ward
  • Age: 27
  • Hair Type: Blonde-ish. Medium Length. Getting thicker by the day – thanks to my pregnancy!
  • Who is your stylist? Laura Heyns North

  • Name: Andrea Fitzpatrick
  • Age: 36
  • Hair Type: fine, curly (but dried straight most of the time)
  • Who is your stylist? Erin does my cut and color. Laura did my hair and makeup for my wedding recently.

Fashion color have become very popular as of late and I get a lot of questions from my clients about this. So, if your find yourself perusing through Pinterest for Katy Perry’s emerald green or Kelly Osbourne’s muted lavender, there are some things you should be aware of.

Achieving these colors is no easy feat and requires some finesse. Many of the beautiful heads of hair you see online are photo enhanced, or might be colored extensions...
