Connie

Kurtz

Owner

Connie has a strong love of animals and has always wanted to start a business of her own.  When her daughter started a career as a dog groomer and showed interest in owning a small business of her own as well, the partnership and Hair O’ The Dog Pet Salon became reality! Connie has called Austin home since 1997.  She is married and is the proud mother of three children, one step daughter, two dogs and one fat cat.  Oh yes, and her vintage trailer, “Poppy”.  She has a B.S. in psychology as well as an MBA.

Amanda

Slack

Pet Stylist

Amanda has had a passion to work with animals since she was a child. In 2015 she started at Hair O' the Dog as a bather, and fell in love with working with dogs. For a year she trained with Brianna and Randi, and in 2016 she started grooming. Her favorite breeds to groom are shitzus and doodles. She is also very good at brushing out undercoats--huskies in particular. Amanda enjoys keeping all the doggies fresh and clean, and of course looking adorable! She plans to stick with her grooming career for a long time, and looks forward to being more involved with animals in the future.  Eventually, she hopes to open her own kick ass animal shelter on a farm so she can rescue animals.

Jullisa

Hornsby

Bather

Jullisa started her new career as a bather at Hair O' the Dog Salon in the winter of 2017, after being a full-time stay at home mom with a feisty toddler. While bathing and brushing out dogs, she discovered a new passion and is being trained by Brianna, Randi and the rest of amazing groomers here at Hair O' the Dog Salon. She is full of ideas, with an artistic mind and aspires to become a dog groomer. Her beloved American Staffordshire Terrier, Dozzer, (4.1.2004 - 5.17.2016) was her best paws friend that taught her patience, how to be an alpha, and how to love unconditionally. At the same time, reading Cesar Milan books has helped her to understand the dog world. 

STAFF

Brianna

Ward

Owner, Pet Stylist

Brianna has been grooming for 10+ years. Her love for animals led her to attend the well-known Classy Pet Grooming School in Colorado. Afterward, she returned to Austin to begin her grooming career. Brianna and her mom had always talked about opening a business together. When the opportunity to start Hair O' the Dog arose in 2015 they were excited! Some of Brianna's favorite breeds to groom are poodles (mini and standard), yorkies and doodles. She has a sheepdog named George who is also the mascot for the shop. Brianna's aim is to run a family business with a welcoming environment and a staff that truly cares.

Randi

Troxel

Pet Stylist

Randi hails from Texas and is proud to be deaf. After a life-changing experience with a very special pet cat, she decided to try her hand at grooming and attended Golden Paws Grooming School in Houston. She fell in love with grooming and has been happily doing it for ten years now. Randi's favorite dogs to groom are golden retrievers and poodles, but she is an expert at grooming any long haired dogs that require hand scissoring. Randi has a Rottweiler, Duff, a best friend and service dog, whose name she chose for her love of The Simpsons.

Sarah

Fredericks

Pet Stylist

Sarah has always had a love for animals as far back as she can remember. She started at Hair O' the Dog as a bather and received intense training to become a groomer. For Sarah, nothing beats coming to work every day and being greeted with tail wags and slobbery kisses from the dogs and smiles from their parents. "I love working at Hair O' the Dog because it allows me to combine two things I’m passionate about – being around dogs and providing the best possible service to our clients. It’s such a pleasure to get to know all the wonderful pooches and their human families." She enjoys working with any breed, to gain experience grooming and to expand her skills.
