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.
I have been going to Adel & Gary's for over 30 years - with Gary as my hairstylist & Jackie as my colorist/chemical pro! Both--are the BEST in the business. Gary- knows how to DESIGN your hair to match your face. He is a sculpture that knows what style, hair length, color compliments your face. I have sent many friends and family to him to get a "make over". They have ALWAYS been completely AMAZED at the results. Jackie- is the chemical genius! My hair is always healthy and brilliant when I leave! (except the time that I messed up my hair on my OWN by trying to do my own hair at home--Ran to Jackie to help "undo" what I had done. She warned me that I should wait. After I begged her to fix it.. She added just a little correction coloring here and there-- It turned out GREAT! (only a little breakage because she was SO careful to choose the healthiest hair) I even get tons of compliments on my latest experiment -- I might get her to do it again-- However, next time, I would let HER do it from the beginning-- I almost caused all my hair to fall out doing it on my own! Eeekkk I would drive an HOUR to go to Adel & Gary's to get my cut and highlights -- But, luckily they are still close by. P.S. I hear "Tony" is also a good hair stylist-- haven't used him personally though.
I give them two stars because it's a beautiful salon, convenient location and I like the concept. My first impression of this salon is "they all should know what they were doing". Well that impression quickly faded. My stylist was Deidra or something like that! She was thirty minutes late to my appointment, not a big deal but it is unprofessional. She wasnt as friendly but that wasnt a big deal but it is unprofessional. One thing that I appreciate from a stylst is that they keep it real with me. Be honest let me know what you think is best for my hair, since you are a freaking stylist. I was going natural and I already hated it. She didnt make me feel any better out of it. I got more criticism then healty advice. She made me feel like she couldnt do my hair as pretty since it was short and natural. If she would have freaking suggested I needed to get a perm then I would have but she didnt suggest that! Any way she cut my hair into a bob, flat ironed it, and i looked like a freaking bird! I spent 85$ there, and I had to spend an extra 65$ the following week because it was so fugly. I want to try Darcell next.. Hopefully things will go well or I will raise hell.
I honestly decided to leave a review because i know there are others experiencing issues similar to me. I came to Uptown & saw Josie off of a site called styleseat.com. i had recently been tooken advantage of by 3girls&aneedle hair/service and wasnt sure who to trust. But simply by grace & mercy, i was led to Josie & had a wonderful experience. I got a full sewn in w/ closure using true indian hair (she believes in recommending quality vendors & not just trying to get over with bad batches). Pricey...yes...but worth it due to the quality of hair ordered (2 bundles & closure $315...will review hair as well) & she died bundles & installed for $250. She also cut layers into the beautifully dyed blk with subtle burgundy highlights (1st time trying color...was nervous...but came out great). Additionally, they were friendly, enjoyed gospel music in background (which i truly appreciated but later R&b was played), was not loud/ghetto/cursing going on...just really a cool environment. This is a real & true review by a female fed with Atlanta's abundance of hair vendors & stylist out here trying to collect on our hard earned money! Im DEFINITELY returning!
I did my research before flying into Atlanta GA from California and I was in need of a serious stylist that knows how to transform people into stars. I actually followed Beautii J's career history on you tubes and blogs which shows a lot from the fashion world, products, entertainment, hair and now educating up and coming stylist. I really wanted a master educator a women of her master craft in my hair. Beautii listened as to what my needs where and added a few suggestion and assist me in selecting the best Indian Hair that matches my natural hair as possible. When my weave was done, I felt and look like a mega star and I must say Beautii has turned my life around because I was picked for a role that is currently view on T.V. now. The staff is so friendly and nice. The staff work is superior as well, I have not seen any client leave unhappy. The shop appearance has a European decor that relaxes your mind. Rest assurance, I am pleased and I have found my long term stylist that not only services my weaves at the shop she also hooks me up on set. Thanks Beautii J...
We arrived at a little after 7pm in a Friday night. The place was busy but not ridiculously crowded. We were seated right away. The music was nice (from Bruno Mars to Janet Jackson) The service was outstanding! Justin, our server, thought we waited too long for our ramen. It didn't seem long to us as we were busy digging in on the delicious appetizers of Japanese fried chicken (yum) and braised pork belly (omg yum). Next thing we knew, Justin came over and told us he discounted part of our meal and apologized for the wait and then the manager brought us MORE complimentary pork belly! Seriously, we didn't think the wait was long at all! The appetizers were plenty for 2 of us. We ordered the mild curry ramen (a bit on the spicy side) and the spicy Wasabi ramen with shrimp added. Both were very tasty! The curry was spicier than I expected, but the curry flavors were spot on. We will definitely come back and I will recommend this place to my friends for sure!
This is a beautiful salon. It is decorated very nicely. I love my stylist which I followed from another salon. My last visit however was disappointing, not because of anything my stylist did but moreso how myself and the person that was with me were treated when we arrived. I can understand that the owner would like to keep her salon nice but not allowing a paying customer to bring anyone along for an appointment is bad business. My guest, who is also a client of my stylist was turned away at the door because she was not being serviced that particular day. We drove an hour and fifteen minutes only to not feel welcomed at the salon upon arrival. This was a complete turnoff. I can understand not allowing children in the salon unless they are being serviced. I can even understand not allowing more than one person to accompany a person with an appointment, but a person that is an actual client turned away at the door.... humm. I can see why the salon is empty.
I have been going to Spoiled Opulence for 6 years! They do all types of hair, and specialize in natural hair and weaves. My professional hair stylist is Danie and she is AWESOME!! She has done all types of styles with my hair including sew in weaves, highlights, and coloring! She also straightens(silk press) my natural hair and people cant believe I dont have a perm. She cares about keeping my hair healthy and advises how to properly take care of it in between visits! She goes over and beyond by suggesting alternatives if I want to do something that can damage my hair & it ALWAYS comes out PERFECT!! I am always pleased with her service and my hair when I leave.Overall this cute, chic salon offers professional and efficient services. The stylists will get you out quickly without compromising the quality of your service. On average, my visits last from 90 minutes to about two hours depending on the type of servcie that I'm receiving.
Cynthia did the best ever hair cut for me a few years ago. When I left the country, it was with great disappointment that I was unable to see her for quite a while. Not only was the cut PERFECT when I walked away, but for days, weeks and even months after. My hair grew out in the same cut as if it were regularly being styled, and I was still receiving compliments six months after my last cut. Her technique is completely personalized, and she takes her time to make sure it's exactly what you were looking to achieve. She's very realistic about what she can do - right away she knew there'd never be big hair from my thin, straight mess - but she absolutely maximizes what good qualities your hair brings. She has a great sense for helping you with YOUR style rather than following a trend or fitting you in to a pre-set idea and her vision is impressive. I'm thrilled to be back in town and seeing her again - and it shows!
I googled brazilian keratin hair treatment and found this studio. I knew I wanted keratin on my hair since my sister got it in New York and her always bad hair was suddenly good hair! My hair isn't that curly it's just very hard to deal with and looks good only on rare occasions without lots of product and ironing. I was able to get an appointment here (they only work by appointment) and am so thankful I did. They looked at my hair and chose the keratin that was best for me (a mild one since I have allergies) and after the days I waited to wash my hair (2) my hair looks like it belongs to someone else. If I just blow dry it (which is fast now) it looks like I've been working on it for an hour, maybe even better. This treatment is unreal and the lady at Gloss who did it seems to really care about your hair. I sent her a text to ask if I could use my old gel and she responded right away. Great place and great treatment!
