WHO WE ARE
Your new salon home
The Dirty Blonde ATX was opened by Peyton Walker in 2021. After working for over five years at a local commission salon, she was disappointed at the corporate culture overtaking what was once a very enjoyable place to work. Exhausted by the constant drama that accompanies the stereotypical salon environment as well as the box she felt forced to fit each appointment into, Peyton took a big risk and left to open her own salon suite. Equipped with a handful of loyal clients, a vision, and a goal to give her clients the personalized service each client deserves Peyton spent the next year building a salon environment where clients feel heard, validated, and accepted. After just a year of working for herself, Peyton was able to hire her first apprentice and is working to expand and hire more talented individuals with a goal of creating a positive, inclusive, and inviting culture not only for our clients and but also for our current and future stylists.
Color and Extension Specialist
Peyton started her hair career in 2016 where she attended The Aveda Institute Austin with the ultimate goal of working with wigs at Walt Disney World in Orlando. It wasn't until she started working in the salon environment that she realized her love for blonde transformations and making her clients feel beautiful. As a former blonde herself (and always blonde at heart), Peyton knows just what goes into achieving and maintaining that perfect blonde while keeping the integrity of the hair the top priority. In addition to blondes and other color transformations, Peyton specializes in hair extensions as well. She loves the meticulous, detailed nature of the service itself and can't get enough of the joy that clients feel when they finally have the long, voluminous hair they've always dreamed of having. She also loves investing in her education and learning new techniques. In an industry that is constantly evolving, Peyton recognizes and appreciates how essential it is to stay ahead of the current trends and be aware of the best practices in achieving a particular look.
When she's not in the salon, Peyton loves to spend her down time relaxing with her partner Alex and her two fur babies- Penny, a 5-year old golden retriever and Porter, a 4-year old goldendoodle. She loves learning about new subjects and hobbies, spending time in outdoors in the water, and anything related to true crime.
Peyton's hourly rate is $110 per hour and she is currently taking new clients for all color and extension services.
