Brian Charles Hair Studio expanded in October to take over the space next door.

Adding more than 1,600 square feet and bringing the total square footage to 3,468 square feet allows a total of 19 stylist chairs, a press release said.

The salon is adding four new shampoo bowls (totaling eight), another bathroom (totaling three) and revamping a storage room into a color mixing room for their colorists. There will also be a new “social media wall” in the new lobby area designed to feature several spotlights for before and after photos of clients.

Brian Charles is also celebrating its five-year anniversary.

Located in Steiner Ranch at 5145 N RM 620, Ste. G-140, Austin, the salon is the brainchild of industry vets and life partners Jon Gray and Ric Salvadalena, who created the Brian Charles name by using their middle names.
