I've seen Donnie a few times then went to the other big name salons and it was a total waste of money. Donnie is the best. He is so easy to talk to and fun to be around. I have really thick, curly hair and Donnie is so great with me. He doesn't freak out like other salons and charge me a crazy amount. Defnitely worth every penny!

I just love my new look. I cant thank you enough Donnie for the new hair style and the great make-up tips. When I got home my husband said I look 15 years younger and that is always a plus! Btw I love your new website!

Ben took my tired dark brunette (some gray) 58 year old hair and brought it to life with beautiful caramel foils and a super cut. I felt 20 years younger when I left.... and it didn't take all day. My friends and family couldn't figure out why I looked so good. That's how natural it looked. Anyway, thanks Ben for a great new look.

Donnie is EXCELLENT! I've been going to him for about 2 years and have never had a bad experience. He definitely listens to what you want but also suggests things to make it a little more fun... he's always right! I've been stopped so many times by people asking me where I go and I just tell them "donniehair.com"! 4 or 5 of my girlfriends have also gone and now won't go anywhere else. He's great...I'd recommend him to anyone!

I went to Donnie based on the comments from Kudzu.com for a haircut. I had tried to grow it for 4 months and he cut it all off just as it had been prior to the four months. He did do a good cut as my hair was overprocessed and probably needed the cut. Went back a couple of weeks later to have partial highlighting done on areas where it was very dark. He indicated he could highlight all over with some low lighting to even it out. I came out darker all over than before I came in. I advised him I was not happy. He asked me what I wanted him to do and I asked him to fix it the way I requested. He said he could not do anything for at least a month and said the color was on him. Went to another professional the next day who did fix it and also some zebra stripes and bleeding from the foils on the previous day from Donnie. Happy to find a professional who cares and will respect the customer's request with knowledge of how to make it happen correctly with no damage to the hair!

I think I need to reply here and tell what is missing. You did say you had grown you hair out. But It was SO damaged that it badly needed to be cut. I did highlight and lowlight you.. I also told you that. I would do what i feel is SAFE to do on your hair because you came in with hair that had been Way over highlighted that had been pulled though a Cap for year's the hair was almost white pluse you had a bad perm on there also. Im sorry I took you out of the 80's and took at least 10yrs off of you. I do know how to work with Damaged hair btw but when I have to put my Name on your hair there are only somethings I will do.
Donnie gave me the best cut ever.. I cant beleive i have been walking around with a cut and color that was not ment for me.. Donnie talked with me about different colors and cuts that would look good on me.. I was a bit scared at first cause i had never had a cut or color like he wanted to do.. He was such a nice younge man and for sure Knows what he is doing. I walked out a new person!! I just let him do his job and i now have a work of art for hair. LOVE IT! Thank you Donnie.

Donnie made me feel so comfortable, gave me a fabulous cut, and color! This was the first time I tried out a stylist since moving to Atlanta and I hit the jackpot on the first try! I have already received compliments on my hair and my husband LOVES it! I'd recommend Donnie to anyone!

I chose Donnie at Shear Impressions because of the reviews. I was so pleased. Immediately when I went in, we sat down and he asked me about what I wanted, made suggestions, and even told me what he didn't think would look good. I was very nervous because I wanted something bold, yet professional. Donnie did an amazing job and I would highly recommend him.

I've been going to Donnie for several years and have always loved my hair everytime I've walked out. I really like to change up my color and style and he always has wonderful suggestions. I get compliments all the time. At Shear Impressions you get a great look for a great price.

When I first moved to Atlanta and was in need of a stylist, I found Donnie based on a recommendation from a friend at work and what can I say...the rest is history! Donnie has been doing my hair for three years now. I was not blessed with good hair and yet with Donnie's expertise I'm actually getting compliments for once in my life. He's charismatic and fun be around and I definitly recommend him to anyone looking for a new stylist or just looking a good change!

This is the best haircut I've ever had.. Donnie is an artist. I went in after 2 1/2 yrs with the "same ol' haircut" and told Donnie to do what he thought would be flattering and stylish. Most people will want to scream when they hear that... but not Donnie! He came up with something fantastic AND easy to manage... And what a sweetheart!! I will keep coming back to him every time...

I went to Donnie today for the first time today and am so totally happy with both my haircut and color. I found Donnie after scouring reviews on kudzu and decided to trust him to cut 13 inches of my hair off to donate to Locks of Love. I have always had long hair and was scared and nervous. He made me feel at ease and did a wonderful job. I almost didn't go to him because of the last post of an unhappy customer but I am so glad I did! He was careful to make sure I loved his work and was very efficient and pleasant. He may only have one color for everyone (according to the last post), but if he does it just happened to be PERFECT for me!!! Thanks Donnie.

The first time I went to Donnie, he was great. The second time, I came out with brown hair not blonde. The lady right before me was not happy either. Her color was way to dark too. It seemed to me he had one color left in the back and was using it on everyone that came in. Not only was the color wrong, the highlights bled and I had these weird stripes of color through out. I had to go to a high end salon to get it fixed. DON'T GO!
