Darla Mason was born and raised in De Leon, Texas and moved to Austin in 1987, after graduating from Roffler Barber School in 1997. She began working for Sydney Tupa at Head Lines Salon where she gained a reputation for being the "go-to" girl for color correction. Darla left Head Lines in 2001 to go out on her own where she began leasing a chair at Shampoo Salon. She continued to build a successfull carreer there, specializing in color, color correction, and cutting. After having her first child in 2003 and twins in 2005 her full time job became being a mom, but she never stopped doing hair, just reduced her hours. Darla joined the Salon hush. team in 2010 thanks to her old friends and Salon hush. owners Walter & Suzanne Matthys.
Darla keeps a "by appointment only" schedule on Sundays and Mondays here at Salon hush.
