My sister recommended Cynthia to me some years ago. She told me..."Cynthia's great Rick. She'll make you look like a star," which is just what I needed to hear. I was living and working in Las Vegas at the time and my look was important to my business, so I gave Cynthia a try. Cynthia listened (actually listened) to my concerns about how I felt I needed my hair to look and was able to give me a style that worked in the boardroom in the daytime and on stage at night - that perfect balance that, believe it or not, was a real challenge to find in Las Vegas. At that time, in the early nineties, I had to be in Georgia a lot, so it was only natural that I would use Cynthia but after several seasons of going to her (between salons in ' Vegas) I realized no one I had used since the seventies had done as good a job as Cynthia was doing now. I began arranging my trips to Atlanta based on her schedule as much as mine...yes I am vain about my looks, obviously. Is she expensive? Compared to what? The Hair Force chain, a $5 nightmare? The ditz down at Neiman-Marcus? Please! She might be a little pricey, but she beats all the competition in her neighborhood. Is she inconvenient? Well, for me she is - very. I now live in back in the south, but not Georgia, and I still jump through hoops to get in her chair...because I know when I get out of that chair my hair will look exactly how I want it to look. I am rarely (never) on stage anymore but I still have to go to the board meetings. When Cynthia is done with my hair I am ready to take on the world...because I know I have the best haircut in the world. That's how I feel and Cynthia neither asked for, nor paid for this review. I just wanted to let everyone know how happy I am to have her as part of my staff.
This is really an exceptional salon. Every aspect is top quality. The owners of the salon seem to very picky whom they hire. The stylists have been trained by the best of the best (Some stylists are from other major salons and trained all over the world and nationwide.), as well as all the employees are just exceptional. My colorist (Sorry, not up their proper name.) was fantastic, too. There backgrounds are so interesting to hear about. My stylist travels to shows all over the world. I would let anyone do my hair their, even though I have my "guy". The whole team works together, customer service is top notch. If you want the best, please give DASS a try. I travel 3 - 4 hours to have my hair done at DASS and I could choose to go to any city or another Salon in Atlanta but I will never go anywhere but Dass. I have never used their Spa, but I plan to do so soon. Did I mention I get pampered there? I love that. That is their level of service for everyone. At least go by and tour their Salon. My stylist is at the Lenox location, however, each Salon is the same level of service. When it comes to my hair, price does not matter, however, their prices are lower than what I thought they would be. So, don't stop by because you may think is "too much," I promise you will be very pleased. Dass has their own line of products that are also exceptional. I am not sure of the Dass history, but I believe they train their hair experts, on top of they're training, as well. They most do something, because they bring in people and they business is a well oiled machine. Perfect. I hope you have a memorable experience! Highest Regards, Minnie Barnhill - Mynatt
JB personifies the term Master Barber. Step your game up and get an appointment on his book...oh yea, you read it right..appointments! Gone are the days of the dreaded wait of a traditional babershop. You'll sit in JB's comfy oversized barber chair and get world class treatment. Whether you're there for a cut, trim, eyebrow arch, or facial treatment, you'll love it when he swings the chair to unviel your look in the mirror. JB doesn't discriminate. His client demographic is wide and inclusive. Men, women, young, old and those in between can and do take advantage of his arsenal of skills in the hair/barber industry. Ladies--tired of barbers who won't fade you out? Fellas, outraged about your barber's inability to blend fade and use a razor? Whether you're a celeb or just a good 'ole regular, you'll get the best the "A" has to offer when you sit in JB's chair. JB consistently crafts styles to suit all. He is innovative, trendy, classic and traditional all in one. I've been a client for over a decade and JB's creative juices have yet to fail me and keeps me coming back. Just like my relationship w/ my general physician; no one else touches this head of mine. He's just that good. From hair shows to the movie studios [yep, he's got his SAG card, folks!], JB's reputation precedes himself. He contiually strives to grow in the profession and break the mold of what people traditionally think of when they hear 'barber'.
