Harsha Madhusudhan

Hairstylist and Makeup Artist (she/her)


Since Harsha was a young girl, she was drawn to cosmetology. She enjoyed getting her hair, nails, and eyebrows done and loved how happy and confident she felt afterward. Harsha wanted to be able to create those same feelings for others. But first, she was determined to get an education at a four-year University. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Marketing at Oregon State University, Harsha traveled to India, where she took a makeup course and learned the art of eyebrow threading and henna tattoo design. Harsha followed through with cosmetology at the Aveda Institute of Portland, graduating in 2015. She later received her James Ryder Makeup Lab certification as well.

Harsha had worked at a Paul Mitchell salon in Portland for two years when she decided to spread her wings and move across the country to Austin, Texas. She started at Urban Betty Salon in November 2017 and continues to thrive in her career. Harsha not only cares about creating beautiful aesthetics, but she goes a step further by taking a personal interest in every one of her clients. “I love building relationships with each new face that sits in my chair.”

Harsha especially enjoys hair coloring and makeup application as it allows her to express her creativity. She is also exceptional at finishing a look due to her strong blow-dry skills, whichis attributed to her experience working at a blow-dry bar.

Throughout her career, Harsha has deepened her understanding of color theory and the science behind hair coloring. She teaches color theory at Urban Betty. Harsha is a member of Urban Betty’s Leadership Team where she and a teammate lead the philanthropic efforts at Urban Betty Salon.

Outside the salon, Harsha continues to express her creativity through the art of Bollywood dancing, singing, and crocheting. She spends the remainder of her free time hiking, watching stand-up comedy, and exploring new restaurants with friends.
