I have been going to Monica for 15 years. When I first went to her, I had bought a box of ash blonde hair color from Walgreens... People listen to me and listen to me good... Do not use box color!!! I came to her as an orange, green, purple, blonde and tearful hot mess. I was from that moment on a customer of hers for many many years. And then I lost my job and tried to save a few bucks and go to someone else who was half the price..... I again ended up back in Monica's chair, less of a hot mess but still some hot messiness was going on..... let's face it people when it comes to your hair you get what you pay for and she's not even expensive! I will never leave her again my hair is finally pretty and healthy again and I have learned some hard lessons, mainly no outfits go with messed up fugly hair!!!! I love Monica FOREVER more »

Monica Johnston has done my color for several years, I wouldn't even consider going to anyone else. When friends admire my hair and ask who did it, I tell them Monica, and refer them to her. Not only is she very talented and professional, her office space is clean, inviting, and very convenient, with lots of parking. What's more, she is very friendly and fun to be around. We have developed a wonderful friendship, I love her! I highly recommend Monica Johnson for ALL your hair needs! more »

Monica has cut my hair for years...her cuts are so good that I let her do whatever she thinks will look good on me...I've never had a bad cut. She cut and colored my hair today and I look 10 years younger. I love Monica! more »

Well, almost 4 years later I am STILL with Monica. Why? Because she has NEVER let me down, whether it be my cut, color, or pleasant , fun conversation. She is truly talented and actually listens to her clients. I am still OCD about my hair, and unlike other stylists who get annoyed with clients telling them what not to do with their hair, Monica encourages me to show her, or actually gives me the comb to let me part my hair, and even wants me to check it to see if I see anything I want changed before I get out of the chair. I have always been more than satisfied with the results. I have never had to ask her to change a thing about the style she has given me. I have had to reschedule with her in the past and she has always been understanding and accommodating. However, I do give her at least 24hrs notice, because, as a small business owner myself, I understand that frequent cancellations at the last minute are disrespectful. If she can't rebook that time slot on short notice it affects her paycheck which in turn negatively affects her livelihood. Most people, unless there is an emergency, are able to give at least 24hours notice. I am a healthcare professional for 30 years and almost all physicians offices will tag on a $25 or more cancellation fee. Thank you Monica for the excellent service you provide. more »

Monica is an amazing hair stylist. I have been getting my hair cut by her for a few years now. Her cuts are amazing and she always does what I ask for. If I ask for a tiny trim, that's what I get.
I wear my hair straight with long layers, and Monica does an amazing job every time.
Also, she is really nice and kind.
She is the best hair cutter I have used in Austin over the past 20 years. She will not disappoint you.

Monica rocks! I've got thick, curly hair that has been poorly cut in the past until I found her 15+ years ago. I'd never ventured into color either, but she does an amazing job of making it look natural. I highly recommend Monica as a complete hair stylist. more »

Monica is wonderful ! I just moved here and being busy had let my hair "go" a bit. it was quite a job with a corrective color and cut, but Monica knew exactly what to do. It came out fantastic! Highly recommend her. more »

Monica is an outstanding color specialist and I always love the cut. She always takes special care of my fine hair which is hard to find. If you are looking for a stylist you can trust I highly recommend Monica and her years of experience more »

We moved here two half years ago and it took three different stylist to find "the one" for me. Monica knows what she is doing when it comes to my crazy thick curly hair and that is a feat on its own. Not only does she do my hair bit my husbands as well and his is the complete opposite of mine. We love our look when Monica is done and the way we feel as we are friends not customers when we are with her. more »

I've been going to Monica for cut/color/highlights/Keratin treatments for years. I'm very particular and she does an outstanding job! She listens to what I want, takes the time to understand and gives very honest feedback about what may look good or bad on me and keeping my hair healthy. She never rushes and it shows that she wants her customers to leave satisfied. I love that I found Monica on this side of town. Bonus: she's super cute, funny and caring. more »

Monica has been my colorist and hairstylist for 13 years and I think she is the best! She is very knowledgeable about color and when I ask for advice about a certain hair color or style, she will honestly give her opinion about whether it will work for me or not. I trust her judgement and I like her direct approach. When I have been late for an appointment a couple of times, she was very courteous, respectful and understanding. And when I needed to change my appointment, at times, she was very accommodating and gave me several different dates and times to choose from. Monica exudes professionalism and she has treated me well. I recommend her to all my family and friends!!! more »

Monica is great at cutting hair and I had been with her for several years but she's also crazy. I work very erratic schedules, as my clinic is open 7 days a week, 12 hours a day 365 days a year and sometimes I have to reschedule as I, like many people, don't know what they are doing 6 weeks in advance. God forbid you attempt to reschedule with her, even with notice. She will either not talk to you or lecture you, or even debase you, making you feel like crap. It's unfortunate that this happened but i will happily go to another person, who was highly recommended, is cheaper, is good, and appreciates a loyal customer. Someone that realizes they get paid by their clients to be a professional. more »

I highly recommend Monica. She's been doing my hair now for 13 years and I would never go to anyone else! She's always done an excellent job and really cares about the quality of her work. We have become great friends over the years! more »

Monica is an awesome colorist I have been going to her for 15 plus years. I think she is the best in town and want to make sure everyone knows she is at Salon Republic. Her attention to detail is out of this world, she will tell you what you need to hear not what you want to hear. That is what I love about her and am proud to call her my friend. I would and do recommend her to anybody looking for a well rounded professional. We laugh a lot!!!! more »

Monica is awesome! I've been going to her for 20+ years and she always does a great job. Since she started coloring my hair, it's not uncommon for me to get stopped by strangers so they can compliment my color and ask where I get it done! Highly recommend her! more »
5on BirdEye, Nov 17, 2015
Monica does a great job EVERY time. I never leave with a bad cut or color. She listens and understands whenever I want to change my style & helps me figure out what will look good. She was even available for 'therapy texts' when I was growing out my bangs! I refer everyone to her and they all love her. more »

I don't usually write reviews, but I do believe in giving credit to experience and professionalism. Monica is by far the most knowledgeable stylist I have had care for my hair. Monica has given me the best accessory that I wear every day..... I could have no make up and in my sweats and still get compliments on my hair!! I would recommend anyone who wants a stylist that is professionable, knowledgeable and fabulous!!! more »

I have been going to Monica for about 5 years now after loosing my long time hair dresser to cancer. A friend from work referred me after my having a hard time finding someone that I felt comfortable with. Monica does a fantastic job of making you feel comfortable and truly listens to what you want your hair to look and feel like. From cuts and highlights to styling Monica does top notch work, my husband and both daughters continue to go to Monica as well. more »

I met Monica about 25 years ago when I had a huge hair disaster. A colleague of mine recommended her and I went to her right away. She did wonders when I thought there was no hope and I've been going to her ever since! Yes, that means I'm no spring chicken. So, if you have your own tried and true style, Monica will give you that. If you want the latest style or color, she can do a great job of that, too. You can see that from her website. Don't let that scare you away, though, if you are traditional like me and want the style you've always had. One thing I like best about Monica is that she will tell you if a style is right for your hair. I have very fine straight hair and very few styles (like one!) will work. I can't remember how many times I have asked her if a certain star or model's hair style would work on me. Her answer: "If you have a stylist who follows you around all day like they do." I need that honesty to keep me on the straight and narrow - hair-wise! She won't let you walk out looking goofy unless it's truly what you want! Monica is skilled, dependable and funny. I'm her client for life! more »
