How to find a great hair salon in Atlanta


  1. Check reviews online and ask friends and acquaintances for referrals. Stop someone whose hair you like and ask them who did their hair.
  2. Visit the salon's website. See if the salon fits your personality and lifestyle. Also check pricing and services. Be sure the salon offers the type of service you need.
  3. Be sure the salon uses great products and offers great retail products. 
  4. Go to stylists that specialize in your hair type.
  5. View the work of stylist you are choosing. See if they specialize in fine and thinning hair, precision cutting, French-sculpt cutting, balyage, highlights, keratin smoothing, color correction, human hair extensions, etc...
  6. See what education the salon gives the staff on an ongoing basis. Top salons know that ongoing training is imperative to stay up with trends, techniques, styles and product innovations. 
  7. See what other services are offered. One stop services such as manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials, massage, and lash extensions are a great convenience and time saver. Plus, many salons can perform several services at the same time.
  8. Check to see what awards and other recognition the salon has been given. See if they are an authority on hair and have been featured in print, television and radio features. Being voted the best in Atlanta is a strong indication that most people are happy, satisfied clients.
  9. See if the salon is involved in community charities and events. Giving back to the community is always a great thing and when you support salons that do give back to the community; you are helping the community as well.
  10. Go local. Support small local salons vs. big national chains. Top local salons mentor their staff, provide continuing education, and are very concerned with your satisfaction.
