Love this salon and the stylists. No waiting and good activity and very professional but not stuffy. It works within anyone's budget. Aveda revamped their products and I love them.

I like the stylists at this location, but they have made me wait for 30-45 minutes each time. I love the stylists at the Buckhead and Highland locations. When the stylists have run excessively late, they always offer a huge discount, which shows me that they value my business.

I've been going to Van Michael Salon for years! There are many in Atlanta and all are great, but the Sandy Springs location is my favorite! Probably because that is where you can have Avery cut your hair! I started with Avery when she was on the New Talent side and have grown with her, parting only a few times for bad haircuts elsewhere which she promptly recovered! She patiently listens to what your vision is and then makes suggestions based on what your growth patterns, shape and lifestyle will work best with. Never fails! Everyone at Van Michael Sandy Springs is courteous, professional, knowledgeable and places the customer first.

I've been going to Van Michael for over 10 years, and been through several outstanding stylists...however, none compare to Erin. Her personality is only outshined by her professionalism and her amazing skill at making her clients look and feel great.

I have had my natural stick straight hair cut by Jenny for 8 years now. I have had everything from a stacked bob to an asymetrical cut to long and blunt and long with layers. I am stopped by strangers with each new cut inquiring where I get my hair done. Jenny listens to me every time, takes copius notes to save for the future and is honest about what to expect from your hair and helping you expect it as well. Not only is Jenny reasonable professional but her personality is an added bonus in helping me enjoy the entire experience at Van Michael in Sandy Springs.

I used to go to the aveda school, but after it took 7 hours last time for color I tried Van Michael's new talents and have always been pleased. They do a great job, have great suggestions and I never leave dissappointed.

Recently, made an appointment for the first time at Van Michael and saw Hannah. Hannah was amazing! I have never received so many positive comments about my hair! I needed a major change in hair style and Hannah provided very creative ideas and options. She was also very fun and engaging. The finish look of my hair was better than I could have imagined. Hannah listened to my hair needs and desires. Then, she designed a hair cut that fit what I had asked for and more. She also recommended a colorist, Jocelyn and set a appointment time for me. Jocelyn was also wonderful! Both girls provided such amazing customer service. My highest expectations were met! You have made a customer for life! Thank you, Hannah and Jocelyn!

I have been going to Van Michael for 10 years. My hair is straight and fine. Harry always knows how to make me feel beautiful and cuts it with precision. I trust him implicitly! My color- Jackson is the best. I have very dark hair. I like to have a one-process color done mostly for shine and fullness. Long ago one hairdresser tried highlights (not jackson), and it was a disaster! Then I found Jackson. She immediately did a one-process dark eggplant to cover it all up, and now I let her play with the color and she changes it a bit every time. Once I came in and was a bit rushed with my schedule and she was running behind. She took the time to talk to me, gave me a discount and apologized. it was the best customer service I have ever seen. I will always go to jackson and harry as long as I have hair on my head! I love them!

I am often too picky about my color and bounced around town until I found LANE. She is amazing!!! My color is always great and the appointment goes so quickly with conversation and tons of laughs. LANE is a keeper!!!

I had 3 haircuts with Hannah - first one was fine, second one was not great but chocked it up to a bad day. The third one was horrifying. She didn't even care that I was unhappy with the cut. This is the second time I had to go to Great Clips to clean up her mess. She does NOT listen, she's arrogant and does not accept any type of criticism. Save your money, she's not worth it!

I was recently referred to the Sandy Springs Van Michael's location by a good friend that had been raving about her stylist. I am so glad that I tried her stylist "Kenney" because he is AMAZING and TERRIFFIC and WONDERFUL. Great professional manner, and he listens well plus OMG can he cut the heck out of my super short hair. The salon is very nice and relaxing. I have never felt excited to go to the hair salon, well now I do. The total Van Michael experience makes me feel warm and fuzzy. You are pampered and treated with great care. I will be back again and again - I am addicted!
