Helene was recommended to me by one of her original clients. After seven years in Atlanta dealing with half satisfied and over priced highlights from the top salons, I have found a home!! Her highlights are so natural. Helene doesn't over do the blonde which is a common money maker for some colorists. Plus the amount of breakage which was a common problem with my fine hair the week after highlights, wasn't present after Helene's color. Her attention to detail and natural artistry should make anyone who sits in her chair feel like a million bucks when they leave.

I have been going to Helene for about almost 10 years now and she has always done great work! My hair is SO difficult as it is so thick and slightly wavy at the same time so she always works with me on ideas to try to make it easier to work with. One thing we tried 2 years ago was the Keratin straightening treatment and it has been a life saver for my hair. She does every service - haircuts, color, and Keratin treatments with preciseness as she is truly a Perfectionist. And she doesn't shy away from doing difficult hair which is encouraging for me as I have had some stylists that have. I always get great compliments on my hair's highlights as she does such a great job!

I have had the privilege of knowing Helene for several years now and I can honestly say she is one of the best hair stylist in Atlanta! First, she truly listens to her client to understand what they want and what fits their lifestyle. Secondly, she is the most METICULOUS hair stylist you will ever meet -- she is perfectionist when it comes to cutting a clients hair. Lastly, Helene prides herself in continuing education - she is also a trainer for a well known product line, which I think is awesome, as I know she will always be up to date on the latest trends and products when it comes to hair! I would highly recommend Helene.

I was referred to Helene by a business prospect of mine. This person gave Helene the most incredible reference which included many superlatives. Helene did not dissapoint. She exceeded my highest expectations. Since moving to Atlanta about five years ago, I have had at least ten different stylists and Helene is by FAR the best. She is very precise and takes her time. I have a high degree of confidence that she knows what she is doing unlike many other stylists that have cut my hair in the past. Helene's prices are a little high, but if you try her just once, you will see that she is worth every penny! She is a real character too which is a big plus!

Helene is the absolute best - I switched to her after going to a bigger salon in Atlanta and am so lucky to have found her. She is incredibly precise and your cut will be perfect when you walk out the door. It is also a pleasure to deal with her in a smaller salon setting - no waiting between a cut and color, big salon snobbery, etc. If you are looking for a great cut (at a great value) in Atlanta, go to Helene.

I have been a loyal customer of Helene's since 2003. She impressed me from the very beginning as it was clear that she was a perfectionist. When someone is working with my hair, that is what I want! The cuts and color I have tried over the years have been exceptional and she is certainly talented. There is no doubt that I would recommend her to anyone searching for a stylist.

My first experience with Helene was a few years ago when I turned to her for help to change my hair color, which had been died tomato red by my previous stylist. In an hour or so I looked brunette and normal again. Now all the members of my family are her clients. What I like about Helene is that she listens to you, does exactly what you ask for; and if you need an advice about cut or color, she comes up with it in a most creative way. The service is great,the price is affordable; and a nice conversation and satisfaction are guaranteed. It's easy to make an appointment over the phone, she'll try to accommodate your time preference and make sure you leave her satisfied with the cut or color. I would definitely recommend Helene as a stylist to anybody who is looking for one.

I highly recommend my stylist, Helene... She listens and pays close attention to detail. She is very focused and very precise with color...it is like a form of art. She's also skilled at giving cuts that work with and complement your face. I always tell her I want to walk out of there looking like a supermodel and she gets busy working her magic. The proof is in the compliments I receive... even from strangers!!!

I have been using Helene for about a year now. After being a long-time Van Michael customer, I was persuaded to switch by a friend's rave reviews. Helene starts off right by blocking off plenty of time for each appointment so that you get her full undivided attention from start to finish. The cuts have been the best I have ever received. My friends have noticed! I got my hair colored by Helene for the first time this month and it was also fantastic.

I've only had three stylists over the course of my 30 years here in Atlanta. Helene is by far the best. What a pleasant experience it is to be able to sit in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere and have someone of such exceptional skill care for you. It's like a holiday every time I visit. I leave rejuvinated and looking my best.

Helene has been cutting and coloring my hair for almost four years. She does an AWESOME job - she listens to me, makes professional suggestions and never rushes. She does precision work. This is absolutely the BEST my hair has ever looked. After years of going to Don Shaw and several Aveda salons around town, I cannot imagine going to anyone else. There is only one Helene! Go see her and you'll be sold too :)
