When asked what the salon is best known for, owner David Troy answers in laconic antipodean style: "If you ask my clients, they would say I am known for cutting everyone's hair short." The David Troy Salon in New Braunfels, TX is also known for amazing haircuts, inspired styling, coloring and highlights, and a friendly and professional staff.
There's also the salon's unique pricing structure, with a price list based on the level of experience and expertise of the stylist. So it's easier to get a fabulous cut for a reasonable price, whether you get a Stylist, Senior Stylist, Director or Artistic Director. Troy stands behind the quality of the work done by each employee: "David Troy Salon is not a spa, we don't try and do anything but hair. It takes 4 years to become a hairdresser in Australia and I have worked with some of the best hairdressers in the world. I try to pass on all my experience to my staff."
The David Troy Salon offers creative color for those who want something more. And because they're familiar with every hairstyling mishap, major or minor, the salon offers color correction as well. Troy began his hairdressing career in Australia, where he was born, and has been cutting and coloring hair around the world for 25 years.
It's important to Troy to keep prices affordable for everyone, while making sure that they get a quality cut, color or style: "Yes this is important, not only for people to understand but to let people have a great experience at affordable prices. I am not here to rip people off and sometimes I think hairdressers' egos get in the way of themselves so they over charge for the service."
Troy thinks there's a place for both professional hair salons and chain stores like Supercuts: "Look, there is a place for all salons and there are benefits for both. I make it a point to never talk bad about any other salons."
Clients can take home with them the salon's special shampoo and conditioner. The David Troy Sulfate Free Shampoo won't strip away hair of its essential natural oils or pigmentation from hair dyes. It's a mild cleanser and like the accompanying lightweight David Troy Hydrating Conditioner, comes lightly scented with lemon and rosewater.
Client reviews reveal a devoted following who wouldn't dream of getting their hair cut, colored or styled anywhere else:
"Totally amazing! My first visit to David was the day he opened his shop and I've been nowhere else since! My daughter, cousin and many friends also call it "home". First class stylists!"
"David Troy is THE salon in New Braunfels! Perfection in coloring with amazing cuts and exquisite customer service. If you want to look and feel fabulous, YOU WILL go and check them out. David, of course is THE MAN!!"
The salon welcomes walk-ins before 5pm. After 5pm, appointments are required.
