I'm new to the area and everyone I asked recommended Van Michael. I see Chris for my hair cut. The pre-hairwash massage alone is worth it! It is very costly so I don't go as often as I'd like but I'm always happy with the results. Some of the staff seem a little snooty but it is't enough to turn me off. Parking can be a bit of a nightmare so leave yourself a few extra minutes to make sure you get a spot.

Van Michaels Salon left me a message that they were cancelling my hair appointment for my BIG HOLIDAY party- 3 hours before my appointment. The reason they cancelled my appointment was "Rod/Ron (the stylist) wants to go home early." It's the Holidays! Your busy season! I made this appointment 6 weeks ago!!! The phone staff is so clueless they offered to have Rod/Ron call me on Monday- how does that get my hair done for my party? I have been using this Salon since I was 26 y.o. I will be 50 this year. No More! The place is more about "the scene" now than about providing great service to their clients.

I have been going to Van Michael's for years. Every haircut has been awesome... And, my color is very natural looking. I love the folks there and highly recommend the salon.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! My first visit to Van Michael NTS started with an old work picture. The pic was taken 5 years ago when I had super-short hair, terrible color, and an extra 70 pounds. After losing the weight, and growing my hair out long, I was well overdue for a new pic. I wanted a new look from the best of the best - I went to see Harry Wood. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the entire experience! I've never been so thrilled with a cut and style! Not only is Harry amazingly talented, he and his awesome assistant London, took the time to TEACH ME how to get the look at home. I was educated on products, styling tools and techniques. Harry even emailed me a bunch of technique videos from his IPAD to help me achieve the look on my own. Next, I saw Chanel for makeup to complete the look. Again, I was OVERJOYED with the results. She also taught me technique as she worked her MAGIC on my face. Needless to say, I got the celebrity treatment. I walked out of the salon feeling red-carpet ready if only just for a new work photo! I truly felt amazing. HUGE thanks and shout to Harry, London, and Chanel for creating an unbelievable look and overall experience. BEST CUT, STYLE, and MAKEUP EVER!

I have been getting my hair done at Van Michael Salon for over 10 years now and just had the best experience ever. I have very thin hair and have wanted to do extensions for years. I cant express how great my experience was. I got them done by Harry Wood IV at the Van Michael in Buckhead and I'm absolutely in love with my hair! I truly couldn't be happier!!

and he's wild about me!!! Harry is a talented, accomplished, and personable stylist. How many times have you gone to a stylist who does an awesome job cutting your hair the first couple months? Harry has consistently provided the "perfect haircut." He is always on time and takes a personal interest in each client. He gets highest marks from me. Thanks Harry. Susan

I came in to see Billie for a specific hair cut that I brought a picture of. I have struggled with my thin hair for many years and was really fed up with it. I picked a very edgy hair style and figured I had nothing to lose. I have never had a stylist put so much work and detail into my cut than Billie did. She totally rocked out the style I wanted and I actually love my hair again for the first time in a very long time. She is shear awesomeness!

I have been going to Van Michael salons since 1997 and have never had a bad haircut or color experience. The BEST, however, is Lauren for color. She is excellent at what she does. I have been seeing her for a couple of years, and she is always striving to improve her technique and skills. I find it hard to believe, but my hair is prettier and prettier each time I go to see her. I often have people stop me in public to ask me who does my hair color - I get compliments all the time - all thanks to Lauren!!

Van Michael salon has a great atmosphere and talented people working there. I have been going to the salon for about five years now and I have recently started going to Austin. He is the most talented and gifted hair stylist I have ever gone to. I always get the most compliments from friends and family when he cuts my hair as compared to other hair stylists. I absolutely love every haircut he has given me! Ask for Austin Bentley if you want an amazing haircut that will make you want to show it off to everyone!

I have been seeing Harry Wood, now at Buckhead VM, for over 10 years, and I can't say enough great things about him. He's so patient, and kind, and knows exactly what I want when I don't always know how to say it. His cuts are consistently wonderful, his service is never rushed,and I always feel at home. Harry will make you look, and feel, like a million bucks.

On the recommendation of one of my girlfriends, I recently went to see Harry at Van Michael in Buckhead. All I can say is WOW! I have a haircut that I love and have never had an easier time styling my hair. I was very impressed when, at the start of my appointment, he handed me his iPad so I could look through hundreds of pictures of different haircuts. While we talked about what I wanted my hair to look like, I felt like he was really listening and genuinely cared about what I said. The end result is fantastic, he kept my hair long like I wanted and added in some great layers. Needless to say, I'll be going back to see him for my next haircut. It's official: if you want to look and feel beautiful, Harry at Buckhead is the one to see!

Unfortunately, I went to Van Micheals at 39 West Paces Ferry Road Northwest, Atlanta, GA 30305, to get a spiral perm with KHIA MCLENDON and I ended up paying a total of $404.92; I ended having a half of my hair completely straight and after talking to the manager I was told that KHIA did not feel like helping me because she is one of the top ones and she knew what she was doing. So, save your time and money on this one
