All I can say is if you have a problem, do not expect for it to be fixed. If you are expecting a boutique, it is far from that. If you are a professional and want to have a professional natural look, forget it. The style was something that I thought I could work with on day 1 and by day 3, it was a mess. I went to the airport with my boyfriend and TSA told me that they had to search under my hair going to my destination and arriving from my destination. I must say it was an embarrassment. When I finally asked my coworkers about my hair, they told me that they did not like my hair. They said that it looked like a weave. They went on to say that the cut was horrible and I received referrals to go to someone else. Sparkle was informed and became very defensive and very argumentative. She is only professional and about customer service when she is trying to get your money. She will consistently talk and tell you that something is wrong with you for not liking her work. She was not willing to work with me to make a dissatisfied customer to a satisfied customer.

Sparkle is no doubt the BEST hair stylist around!! I have had many weaves before, and I will be the first to tell you, I am a frugalista, but when I finally decided to splurge and pay the extra $$s for Sparkle's particular weaving expertise I couldn't have been happier!! I would recommend anyone to 'invest' in her services - you could save a couple of dollars elsewhere, but why do that when you can pay for quality?! I work out a LOT, and I am rough on a weave, but my hair STILL looks fabulous - the hair (Remy), and the cut is so amazing even on my 'bad' hair days I look great!! Thanks again Sparkle - you ROCK!!

My first time going to Sparkle was late October 2010. A friend highly recommended her, so I decided to see what she could do for me. I must say Sparkle is truly a "miracle worker". my hair was dry and brittle, so I decided to give my own hair a rest, I opted for my very first sew-in, she conditioned my own hair before the sew-in. When she finished I was amazed at my transformation! It didn't look like a sew-in at all, it had a very natural shine and lots of bounce. I was very pleased with the cut and style, but being the skeptic I am, I decided to wait before I gave a review, to see how my hair would hold up. Its has been 3 months and my hair still look good. Sparkle gave me some maintenance tips to do at home, but it's easier and more convenient to let her take care of it. I have a new born and this free up more time for my baby and husband. I am now sold, after 3 mos. I am about to schedule my appt for a take down and and new sew-in. Thanks Sparkle for making my ife much easier, it may be a long, long time before I wear my own hair again. Mia

I must say that Sparkle is great and I love how does my hair. I have been with her for almost a year and must say I have not had a bad experience. When I saw the bad review I had to comment by saying it must be another salon because everyone I know loves Sparkle. Please read all reviews before making a decision.

I initially thought that my experience with this salon was great but after wearing my hair for two days, it began to look "wiggy" and stiff. I was stopped by a few associates who even asked me if I was wearing a wig and that was certainly not a compliment. I actually went to another salon and had my hair redone in a more natural looking manner. I am now VERY, VERY Happy. I also paid 60% less than what I paid to Sparkle. This was a lesson learned. I just wanted to give more accurate feedback.

This is a fiction review. Salon422 specializes in FREE hair and doesn't apply product to make the hair stiff. All styles are applied for a natural touch for each client which are the same pictures on our website. To mention this reviewer never called the Salon to reference this experience as we always make sure all clients are satisfaction. Thanks! - Team Salon422
I had the honor of experiencing the work of Master Stylist, Sparkle of Salon 422. First of all, let me start by saying that 422 is a first class salon. I love the "loungy" atmosphere. I decided to go to Sparkle because I had heard so much about her and after months of wearing the same old style, I desired something a little more edgy and fun. Sparkle is immaculate with a pair of shears! OMG! I love my cut! It's everything that I wanted. Short, chic, edgy, and oh so easy to maintain. I get so many compliments! She is by far THE BEST that I have experienced and I would recommend her to anyone. And yes, I said anyone, meaning all ethnicities. Try her out and I guarantee you'll keep going back. I have found my hair stylist for life! Thanks Sparkle!!!! View some of her work via salon422.com!

I have had the opportunity to experience many stylist here in ATL, since I am from here. However, once I found Salon 422, I knew I was here to stay. Sparkle delivered A1 customer service, which is very important to me and the quality of her work is superb! I have never gotten a style from her that I didn't like and I must say that she has definitely won me over and I am here to stay!

Service was awesome!! Sparkle was very knowledgeable and was able to guide me in the right direction due to my indecisiveness!! Been rocking the sew-in for 2 months so far and I've gotten compliments everywhere I go!! Love the versatility of my style and would recommend salon 422 above all others!!!

I found the salon by doing some research online- i've never gone to a stylist before - especially not for weave after just seeing pictures on the website but after seeing her pics i had to check her out and i'm glad i did. i've never liked my hair after getting it done until sparkle did it. it was truly amazing and i get compliments on it everywhere i go...after 14 weeks...still. she is amazing!

Being from Atlanta I thought it would be easy to find a great stylist that could do a sew-in without it looking like a sew-in,but it has not been that easy. I found Salon 422(Sparkle) through Kudzu. Every review and picture was SOOOOO ON POINT. Sparkle is the best stylist and very professional. My sew-in not looks like my hair, but it has body and movement(not to mention the layers are gorgeous). If you are looking for a stylist and salon that can cater to your beauty needs, whether dramatic or conserative; Salon 422 & Sparkle should be your ONLY decision.

My friend and I drove from Macon and let's just say that we don't regret it. Sparke is really a Top of the Line Beautician. She cares about healthy hair and she doesn't cut pictures from beauty magazines to post on the website, this girl has skills. She really cares what the client wants. She did an amazing weave and cut, and trust me only you will know that it's a weave. If you really want a Spectacular hair do, in a Professional Atmosphere by a Remarkable stylist that's definitely a Keeper; ‘call SPARKLE' you will truly Love your hair and receive Excellent comments.

After having a baby, i decided that i wanted to funk it up a bit...I searched high and low for a stylist that could create a healthy, easy maintenance, funky hair style. After almost throwing in the towel of countless visits and consultations I was blessed to find a stylist that not only created an award winning hair cut but also took the time to show me numerous ways to maintain my hair style!!!!! Sparkle is the truth!!!!

First of all, I have had it all. Short, long, weave, curled, front lace wigs, quick weave. Everything! Nothing looked good because the cut is really the key to a good weave. My newest venture, infusion. Another costly mistake. Well, I had to try something new. Sparkle! I tried Sparkle. Thank you Lord! She has not only made my sew in look good, she made it look like mine. This is the best looking hair style I have ever had. And the men- love it! I definitely recommand her and the compliments keep coming. She is simply a cutting diva and a wonderful person. She treated me with great professionalism and friendliness. She is worth every penny.

I was very comfortable during my visit at Salon 422, Sparkle has a very pleasing personality, and is a very professional stylist. Her styles are absolutely amazing. She gave me my very first makeover and glamour shots, and I have gotten loads of compliments. Keep it up. Ms. Davis
