"I just had my hair done by Kate and she is absolutely AMAZING! I honestly think this is the first time I have ever felt TRULY happy about walking out of the salon. I've had a blondish ombré in my hair for a while now and had been thinking about going back to my natural color. Kate took me back to my natural brown and gave me an amazing cut as well! The best thing I can possibly say is that Kate listens to exactly what you want...and then makes it even better. Her salon is small and cozy and everyone was so easy to talk to. It definitely helps that it's right around the corner from me. Needless to say, after being in Austin for 14 months as of today I have finally found where I will continue to go to have my hair done!"

The Last Satellite is a charming salon in The 704 building by Broken Spoke. I absolutely love coming to this salon because Kate always makes me feel at home while I am getting my hair done. She has been cutting my hair for quite some time now and always makes me happy! I don't feel nervous at all in her chair. She is a pro at hair cutting! Thanks Kate!!

Dawn Hill is absolutely amazing! She is creative and fun and very good at cut and color. I have been following her around for the last 7 years and I would highly recommend her for any type of hair - man, woman or child!

"Best hair salon experience ever!! Dawn was so pro and had the most original and effective technique for my most troublesome hair. It's naturally curly and I'm getting a bit grey. She meticulously weaved in a barely light and dark highlight that blended So beautifully that roots will not be a problem for a while.  She listened when I said I wanted to keep the length and I Love the shape! Highly recommend. I'm hooked."

"Kate has been cutting my hair for a couple of years and I just love her work. She's patient and extremely talented. I love her new salon and it's in a fantastic hip location with shopping and restaurants nearby. I highly recommend her!!"

Ann Marie D. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Her salon is super cute and quaint and also very close to my home (a great bonus!) She explained everything she was doing with my hair (going from ombré to one color) and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I was the only one in the salon the whole time, so I felt like royalty! She gives amazing scalp massages, pays very close attention to detail, and her pricing is just right. Kate is a very talented stylist and I can't wait to go back!"

Ashley S. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Dawn is an artist and so talented! She listens, she responds, she respects you (the client) and she gently directs you to the best style of your life. The salon is convenient with ample and free parking, clean, hip, friendly and you will leave feeling phenomenal. And looking even better. YEAH DAWN!"

Barbara C. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Great location, lots of parking, very clean and modern salon (with an Austin Vibe) and once Kate does your hair you won't want anybody else. Kate is nice, down to earth and is truly passionate about making you and your hair look great and she's got the experience to do it. I have thick, messy long hair that has defeated many a weaker stylist but Kate tames my hair beast without breaking a sweat and the products she has for sale are amazing and actually affordable!"

Barnaby J. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Dawn has been cutting my hair since I moved to Austin three years ago. She is amazing. When my wife was looking for a new hair stylist, she was hesitant to take my recommendation. I'm a guy, what do I know about women's hair, right? Plus, my wife had some serious issues to navigate from years of bleaching. But, I knew she'd be impressed with Dawn and finally convinced her to pay Dawn a visit. My wife was sold right away. Dawn is super talented and we wouldn't go anywhere else now that we've found her. I highly recommend her!"

Brett C. from Yelp

★★★★★

"This place is awesome!  It has a cool Austin vibe, Kate the stylist is completely professional and genuinely cares about her clients. I will never let another stylist touch my hair again! She has styled several of my friend's weddings (hair and makeup) and the brides looked phenomenal and were extremely happy on their big days. I highly recommend Last Satellite and Kate's services, she is the best!"

"I left there with my hair feeling 200% healthier than before I got there. She works some magic, that's for sure. VERY highly recommended. Go for quality instead of quick and cheap - you get way more than you pay for in this case. Can't wait to go back!"

"I had an excellent experience visiting Kate at Last Satellite for my haircut. The level of hospitality made me feel at home. Such a lovely, warm, and welcoming environment paired with Kate's fun and enthusiastic attitude made for an all around amazing experience. Oh not to mention my haircut is perfect. I've already had several compliments. Top notch. 10/10."

Charles H. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Great vibes coming out of this salon. The space is super clean (very important to me), warm and welcoming. It's not every day I walk into a business and experience REAL hospitality that makes me feel like I belong, like I'm at home. Not only is the space beautiful and unique, but my haircut is fantastic. The level of skill, art, and professionalism by Kate, paired with such a wonderful environment creates an all around fantastic experience I have not found anywhere else. Top notch, 10/10."

I always love love LOVE my hair when Kate is done with it. Brunette to blonde can sometimes be hard to get just right and it is always perfect :) I will never go anywhere else!!"

"I have been going to Kate for a few years, and I always love how she cuts and styles my hair. Yesterday she gave me a short, easy, unpretentious cut that I can easily manage myself and fits my way of life perfectly. Thank You, Kate!!!

Donna D. from Yelp

★★★★★

"I got a fabulous haircut from Kate, as I always do. My haircut looks great from the day I get it and it is easy for me to style it as it grows out. Her new salon, Last Satellite, is classy and spare. It is easily accessed at a light on South Lamar, where parking is available for retail clients. I recommend Kate not just because I love my haircut, but also because I love my haircut experience."

Donna D. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Relaxing, clean and personalized salon experience. Reasonable, comparative prices. Easy parking. Refreshments available (that's important to me.) I recommended Kate to a neighbor friend whose stylist had moved to Costa Rica, and now she regularly visits Last Satellite. I'm now recommending Kate to all the Yelpers and Facebookers in Austin. That's you. Trust her to listen to what you are going for in that next look. When not in the salon, she is on sight at events and fashion shoots so her skills are diverse. Located near the Broken Spoke on South Lamar."

"Comfortable, relaxing and vintage feel. Salon owner and lead stylist Kate Leatherwood provides personalized hair and beauty services that refresh the soul."

Emily T. from Facebook

★★★★★

"As a former member of the chic Osgood O' Neil salon in the north Texas area, Kate knows her stuff. She has designed a sleek cool concept that embraces Austin eccentricity and flair. Ever the professional, she goes the extra mile to make sure that the customer is always satisfied. And, yes, there is free parking - the last of a growing bastion in Austin!"

Gigi Z. from Yelp

★★★★★

"I used to go to the usual chain places to get my haircuts. It was always a dice roll as to whether it would be satisfactory or not. At the Last Satellite that is never a problem! Kate Leatherwood is a very talented stylist and has always delivered 5 star haircuts and customer service. It is a very lax location right on Lamar, centrally located. There are snacks and even a vinyl record player to listen to music! Bottom line is that when I get my haircut at Last Satellite I always get compliments for weeks. Try it out, I assure you will probably come back again and again!"

Guillermo M. from Yelp

I wouldn't think to go elsewhere! If you are looking for someone new to give you a fresh styling, I totally recommend you check out Last Satellite!"

"Dawn has been cutting and styling my wife's and my hair since we moved to Austin in 2013. She is amazing! Every time we see her there we feel great when we see the magical results. Not only is she a great hair stylist, she is a great person too. She really cares about how you feel when she's finished styling and wants to be sure that you are happy with the outcome. I couldn't recommend her any higher. If I could give her 6 stars, I would."

Jeff M. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Kate is the best! She really listens to what you want and takes her time to get it right. She's also sweet and fun to be around. I'm so happy with the cut and coloring that I've gotten from her and she's also great with bang trims! (You gals with bangs know how hard it can be to find this sometimes!). I highly recommend her. Also, her salon is clean, laid back and chic. You feel a little like you're hanging out with her in her home... like an upscale, modern Steel Magnolias - next to Broken Spoke! Overall an awesome experience."

Jenny H. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Kate was amazing! I've struggled finding a stylist who is as good as Kate with color and highlights. She made sure to match my color perfectly and listen to exactly what I wanted. The highlights she gave me look incredible. She took her time and was meticulous giving me tiny natural looking highlights that blended perfectly with my previous blonde color. Her shop is the cutest little thing ever. I would HIGHLY recommend her."

Jenny N. from Facebook

★★★★★

"Last satellite is a chic and inviting salon in a new upcoming south lamar. Kate's been cutting my hair for a while and has never disappointed. She has done a great job cutting my hair when it was short and now as I'm trying to grow it out. You'll leave feeling and looking good. Guys, the girls will notice."

John A. from Yelp

Kat A. from Facebook

"I started going to Kate about four years ago when we both lived in Dallas. I was overjoyed when I found out we were both moving to Austin at the same time! Her new salon is very relaxing and easy to get to. I always know its going to be a good day when I get my haircut from Kate. She also has done an amazing job with giving my blonde beige base a fresh look with a mini or partial highlight!"

Katie K. from Yelp

Mahlon L. from Facebook

"Kate Leatherwood is an amazing stylist and colorist. When I first walked in the Last Satellite doors, I was dealing with a hair disaster after not being able to color or style my hair for eight months. Kate worked miracles, spent a lot of extra time on the color matching new roots and older hair growth and bringing in my old color, and when I walked out again my color and cut were perfect. I'm sold for life."

Max A. from Yelp

"Kate does a wonderful job. My color and cut are always perfect when she does my hair. I'm sold for life."

Mollie H. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Last Satellite is a great change of pace from most salons! I have a hard time trusting people to cut my hair but Kate had me relaxed from the moment I walked in. She uses great products and really knows what she's doing. She takes her time and you never feel like she's rushed to get you out the door. I highly recommend Last Satellite!"

Monica C. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Kate is so talented. You can show her a picture of what you want, and she will recreate it effortlessly! I wouldn't trust my hair with anyone else in Austin. She is the BEST!"

Natalie W. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Kate is the only person I let touch my hair. She's the best I've ever had!! The salon is so cool and fun, I always end up hanging out and having a beer after. 5 stars all the way, wish I could give more :)"

Nowell M. from Yelp

"I always look super sharp leaving the Last Satellite. Kate's the best stylist in town!"

Nowell M. from Facebook

★★★★★

"My normal hair girl left the business, so I went to a new girl who gave me the flattest hair imaginable. I looked like a school girl, like an awkward one. I don't like (or don't have the time to be) messing with my hair, so a really good cut is everything to me. Thank all higher beings I found Kate! She turned that frumpy mop of mine into a really great, short bob. I even got compliments from strangers on my hair up to 2 months after it was originally cut...once when my hair was only half dry! Total bonus that her space is clean, simple and cute. And Kate's funny, charming, and really easy to talk to."

Phyllis K. from Yelp

★★★★★

"I've been getting my haircut here for the last 3 months, and I've always been know to be the pickiest client for any of my past hair stylists. I warned Kate from the start that I could be a challenge, but she accepted without hesitation and has consistently exceeded my expectations. There are a million options when it comes to a men's haircut, but I will continue to see Kate because she's an excellent listener, pays close attention to detail, and most importantly, she cuts and styles my hair the way I want it done. Highly recommend this girl!"

Preston S. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Excellent, excellent, excellent.  Kate is an amazing stylist, listened to what I wanted in a new style and made it better than I had imagined. She is super talented and always fun to talk with. I highly recommend you book an appointment, if you want to look your best."

Ryan T. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Kate has been cutting my hair for years, and I will never go to another stylist! She is friendly and a complete professional! I'm a bit picky when it comes to my haircuts, and she has never once let me down. The Last Satellite Salon is unlike any hair saloon I've been to. It has a relaxed vibe. Unlike most salons, which keep a frantic,  unpleasant environment, in my opinion, The Last Satellite is a place that I love to visit! Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by Kate or one of her stylist with a big welcoming smile. She'll offer you a beer and a snack, put on some good tunes, and just go above and beyond to make sure that your stay is enjoyable. I recommend The Last Satellite salon to anyone and everyone!"

"Kate did my hair for my bridal portraits, and she was absolutely wonderful!! She repeatedly offered me coffee/water and was repeatedly making sure I was comfortable. Kate executed the perfect hairstyle for me! She studied all of the hair inspirations I had sent her, and she made sure that I loved every single curl on my head. I will be going back to her for all of my hair necessities! Thank you, Kate!! I've absolutely loved working with you!"

Star L. from Yelp

"Kate Leatherwood always makes me feel glamorous when she styles my hair. She also gives great new hair tips and keeps you up to date on new techniques. I especially enjoyed the balayage technique she used, it was very subtle and precise. I like my hair to look natural and it achieves this perfectly. Thanks Kate, see you soon :)"

Stevann M. from Facebook

"Dawn Hill is an amazing stylist and colorist who transformed my fine thin hair into something beautiful . She also works wonders with my husband's thick curly locks so she can charm any type of hair into looking great. In the past, I hopped around from stylist to stylist, but since I've experienced Dawn's gifts, I am committed for life. I understand why her clients fly from all over the world to see her. The salon itself is brimming with space, light and elegance. If you are looking for a stylist that can work miracles, go to Dawn. You won't be disappointed."

Suzanne G. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Kate is a true artist! She transformed my 13yr old daughter's hair and created a work of art in the process. My daughter was breathless with delight at the end result. She had no idea Kate was going to work such magic. Kate was patient, generous with her time, and created a beautiful galaxy of color that shimmered with health and body. The week before she had given me highlights and trimmed my hair to perfection. Kate and Last Satellite definitely has two more clients for life!"

Tari J. from Yelp

★★★★★

"Kate is amazing! I brought my kiddo in for a cut and Kate was just the sweetest. I've always struggled with "taming" my kiddos hair. Kate made me feel wildly inadequate because she got it done like nothing! My kiddo is beyond happy with her cut and style and I will definitely be back for a cut and color myself. :) Thank you Kate!"
