OMG!!! I went into this salon yesterday and was blown away. Let me tell you, I had 3 different colors in my hair and I thought it was hopeless!!! Ericka was my stylist and she did not flinch when she saw my hair. I told her I wanted my hair a nice red that went with my complexion. I have very tan skin and not all women of color can wear red hair. To make a long story short, Ericka was able to transform my hair from an ugly, three-demensional, dry mess to a beautiful red, silky creation. The staff was so nice and inviting. The young lady who is traing blow dryed and straightend my hair and did an awesome job!!! I HIGHLY recommend going to VIVID. They are exceptional!!!

First time customer at Vivid and I left very pleased. She really took the time to listen to what I wanted prior to the cut and made great suggestions based on my hair type. Also, suggested some volumizing hair products the salon carries. Love the atmosphere in the salon and Jenn was very friendly and conversational. Highly recommend- will be a returning customer!

Stephen is a super-stylist! He's a total rock and roll hair superstar!
I never wait when I arrive for my appointment, his technique is amazing, the salon and his station are always extremely clean, he's attentive to my needs, and he's great to talk with. I recommend him to everyone!
The services I've had: hair cut, trim, and highlights (low and high). I always leave with the softest, shiniest hair and a big smile!
The salon is situated across from Alon's and Family Dog and next door to Rosebuds...easy to find parking across the street and the entire staff is super friendly.
LOVE this place and Stephen is the best!

I've been going to Liz for years and I can't imagine letting anyone else near my hair. Liz is amazing with color and is always up for a change whenever I decide I want something different with my cut. Now at Vivid, she has a great team, the space is beautiful, and I look forward to my appointments every time. I completely recommend Vivid if you want to feel welcome and pampered and to find a stylist that you can trust to listen to what you want and have your hair look even better than you expected.

Since moving to Atlanta in 2009, I've tried several stylists in different salons around town, but I didn't enjoy any of them until I found Stephen Ciccone at Vivid. Stephen is FANTASTIC at what he does, always taking my ideas of what I want and making them look even better than I imagined.
I also love the atmosphere at the salon. Its exposed brick walls and hardwood floors create a hip vibe, and it's a calm, fun environment where I feel like I am there to be focused on and pampered.
I've been in salons before where it feels more like I'm at the zoo with noise and chaos, and I hate . Vivid is busy but calm and personal, and even the other stylists are so friendly and welcoming and will often stop to say hi, which is really nice.
Bottom line: If you want beautiful hair and a calm, professional, and friendly environment, you should be going to (see Stephen at) Vivid!!

Liz is the first person to every get it right for me. Having very thick hair, and wanting a low maintenance cut, I was always trying to figure out what style worked for me. Liz took over and I haven't worrried since! Thanks Liz for taking the time to get to know me and creating a style that truly fits me and my lifestyle!

This Virginia Highlands salon is a gem! Liz Covin has created a salon with the right mix of atmosphere, professionalism and edginess. Add to the mix Erika Williams as cut and colorist and you have perfection. Erika is a great listener and does carefully crafted work. She has intuitively and consistently gotten my color and highlights just right, even when I want to change it up or tweak it, the results are spot-on, every time. This is a best-in-class salon without all the stuffiness, drama or snootiness you might expect from a salon of this caliber. A great salon experience with dedicated and knowledgeable professionals. Be prepared to handle the compliments you'll receive on your hair!

Cyrus is the best hair stylist I have ever used. He always listens to what I want in a hair cut and color. If I ask for something that won't work with my hair he will tell me and discuss my options. It is always a fun experience. I would not trust my hair to anyone else.

Best cut and color EVER!!!!
I went to Vivid Salon for the first time and luckily got a FANTASTIC stylist, Stephen!! He gave me the best cut and color EVER!!! I was a bit nervous (as most girls are when they go to a new salon...and with a new stylist) but Stephen did a fabulous job and was extremely friendly. I would highly recommend this salon....and most definitely Stephen!!

Typically I have walked out of a hair salon and not felt spectacular about what the stylist has done. Jenn did such a fabulous job on my hair that i cannot stop looking at it! The length was just as I requested and the layers went above and beyond my requirements and expectations. The salon is located in the Morningside area and is a nice, unique spot with a great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Jenn and Vivid to anyone is looking for a fantastic haircut or a new style! Jenn has definitely made me a repeat customer!
As everyone knows finding a GREAT hairstylist and salon can sometimes seem impossible. You might find a good salon but not a good hairstylist and the other way around. Well my fiance' and I have had our fair share of finding the mediocre in salons and their staff, but once we were introduced to Vivid and its employees we are done with our search of finding both a GREAT salon and an AMAZING Hairstylist. Cyrus is a definite asset to Vivid and his clients. He brings both professionalism and expertise to his clients daily. My fiance' drives 2 hours to only have Cyrus do her hair, she will not let anyone else touch it and neither will I. Cyrus, Liz and the entire staff make us feel like family and we are forever grateful to have found such a wonderful salon. Vivid doesn't settle for good they strive for GREAT and set the bar for others trying reach success in this industry. THANK YOU CYRUS & VIVID!!!
The perfect salon experience! Stephen does an amazing job with my color and cut, and my hair is pretty fickle! Today, he suggested doing my color with cream instead of gel -- and my hair has never felt so healthy and shiny. The vibe is very welcoming and I love that salon is located in the Virginia-Highland/Morningside neighborhood. If you haven
Liz and her staff operate a first class salon. It is very welcoming and relaxing. Much detail is given to every client's needs and from my personal experiences.... great results!!! From color to cut, you will be very pleased to let all of your friends and neighbors know you are a Vivid customer!!
Just like half of the people in Atlanta, I am a very picky about my hair. I want folks who are knowledgeable about the latest styles and coloring techniques. Liz (and everyone else at Vivid) brings that sense of style and professionalism to each client. Liz's drive to give the very best service is what keeps me going back every month to Vivid. If you're looking for a new, hip salon, I can't recommend Vivid enough!

the worst thing about moving to a new city is finding a great stylist! Well, I found one in Liz! It's very rare to find a stylist that can do a great short cut and Liz can. She is also very knowledgeable about color and did and amazing job highlighting and coloring my hair. Love the ambiance inside the salon and I could purchase high end hair care products, love this salon and highly recommend!

i just can't say enough great things about my entire experience at vivid! i went in for a cut, color & highlight...so, i knew i was in for long haul! from the moment i walked in the door, when i was greeted by the friendliest of faces and immediately offered my choice of beverage, i felt like a VIP! and then there's lexi...she is my new best friend! she doesn't know it yet, but we're gonna hang out every day from here on out, just so, when the hordes of people accost me to tell me how absolutely fabulous my hair looks, she'll be right there, and i can immediately direct all praise, comments, referrals & questions directly to the artistic genius, herself! i'm not kidding when i say, there hasn't been a single place i've gone since i got my hair done two days ago, where i haven't received multiple compliments on my hair! with very little information, lexi was able to create the exact color and style for which i was looking! i loved the atmosphere so much, i may start showing up there a few days a week with a piece of foil in my hair and just sit on the couch and hang out! the price was BEYOND reasonable and it was genuinely an excellent experience all-around!

I am sure you can find a talented, tactful, professional, friendly stylist here however, I did not find this in the owner, Liz. My hair was so uneven that my next stylist had ppl in her salon come over to explain how you never leave a clients hair, and I did explain to Liz that it was uneven, and she didn't fix it only made me believe that I was blind or my head must be on crooked, not how to respond to a customers concern. She also colored my hair that washed out in less than a week and even aware of my disatisfaction she charges full price... She didn't get it because she didn't listen. I was very clear about my cut and she CHOPPED up my hair way to short and totally uneven. Should you get your hair cut by Liz, speak slowly, Loudly, say a prayer, then Repeat! You may get her attention before she does what she wants to your hair then makes you uncomfortable around other clients by her lack of tact and professionalism.

Vivid was the first salon I came to after moving to Atlanta. While Vivid's very nice, Ritchie is the absolute BEST stylist I have seen here in Atlanta (I once tried Salon Red and let's just say I really missed Ritchie after that one.) Ritchie colored my hair beautifully and gave me a great cut that all resulted in me feeling happy and confident.
Ritchie's no longer at Vivid, though!!! Now he's at:
Lather Salon & Spa
1451 Piedmont Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30309
Lather's really close to Vivid -- no more than half a mile away and the atmosphere is very clean and relaxing. You cannot go wrong with Ritchie, he's an expert colorist/stylist and on top of all of that, very nice and confortable to be around! Thanks Ritchie!!
