If you look at the dates when 'people' claimed to give such great reviews to Robin, they are all on exactly the same day. The very generic "She is great" with 5 stars are all posted on the same day. Could it be just a coincidence that a plethora of people decided to write very similar reviews on the very same day? I think not... I got my hair cut and colored by Robin and wish I had noticed this deception before I went. I got my hair cut and colored a month or so back and was extremely disappointed. My color was alright at best but my basic trim was atrocious. I had to go to a different salon the next day for them to fix it and even they were shocked at how horrible and choppy the layers were! Maybe if Robin had done a blowout like normal salons do, I could have seen the uneven, choppy layers and had them fixed. I left with half of my hair still wet and zero style. I will definitely not be going back!

My independent daughter just called me practically in tears after leaving this "salon". She put herself entirely thru 4 years of college. She also just received a job at a fortune 500 company in the Atlanta area. Moved herself . So she decided to go to this salon with an offer from LivingSocial. She had a meeting at work that ran late and upon arrival at the salon was greeted by an o you are the late one. I had set aside an hour appt for you and you have 20 minutes left . the shampoo girl soaked her blouse and the owner of the shop proceeded to be very rude enough to bring my daughter to tears. Why ? I have no idea!!! To make matters worse , the only service that was rendered was a wash and trim, no blow dry or style , this for $35.00. Its awful to think that someone could treat a young lady who has overcome so many obstacles so poorly. Shame!!!

I have been going to Robin for 19 years and I can't imagine trusting my hair to anyone else. She is so fun and easy to talk to, she listens to my wants and needs and delivers each time! The staff is great always a friendly atmosphere!

Studio 305 is warm and friendly! But if you go, ask for Kevin! I love my cut and color! I have short, thick, red hair and have never been able to find anyone who made me perfectly happy! Kevin is the best!

Mark Dotson has been my hair stylist for more than five years. His training, skill set, and creativity keep me coming back. He always has great ideas and the ability to achieve amazing results. Mark has been the only stylist to consistently meet or exceed my expectations and deliver time after time. I can't recommend him enough. If you haven't been markd, then you need to get markd! http://getmarkd.com

I recently had my hair cut by Mark Dotson. I have never been more impressed by a hair cut. Mark listened to all my concerns and after his precise cut, I walked out amazed. I will never put my hair in another stylists hands again!

I've been going here ever since my sister said I would like it. Robin does my hair perfectly, and she is the only person who I let cut my hair or dye it. She knows the best way for it to look. I can't wait for my next haircut/dye job because I need it.

The first time Mark Dotson cut my hair was five years ago. He is the only stylist I've seen since then. Mark's hair creations are stylish, flattering, and easy to maintain. I love seeing Mark because I know I'll get many compliments, even weeks after my haircut!

I've followed Mark Dotson from Vidal Sassoon, to D.A.S.S., and now to Studio 305. I was immediately impressed with him b/c of his training with the V.S. Academy, and he has never steered me wrong. You can tell that he is very passionate about hair, and many times he doesn't let me out of his chair for 2 hours. I've honestly never received a hair cut from anyone else that was better, and I can often get by longer in between cuts b/c he does them so well and is so detailed. He is always professional, polite, and personable--just a fun person to be around. I've taken 3 other people to see him, and they were all equally satisfied and impressed. Obviously, I'm not the only fan of his work!

I don't live in Atlanta anymore but you can be sure I am there more than I should be because there is one person I will let cut my hair and that is Mark Dotson. I am grateful my job and family require frequent trips to Atlanta because this haircut cannot be pulled off without him. I have paid insane amounts of money going to some of the most revered and costly coiffeurs throughout the nation but Studio 350 and Mark Dotson have made a lifetime customer out of me. It is worth any and every penny but I guarantee you won't pay nearly as much as you would at any of those studios. You'd be nuts to go elsewhere.

Mark Dotson is probably the best kept secret in Atlanta. He is friendly, professional--the cream of the crop. Mark takes time in his consultations and offers you fabulous options without sacrificing style. His technique is on point. If you value your hair as your crowning glory, or want to, he is the man to go to.

Carter Vu at Studio 305 has been the 1st hair stylist I've found that I loved in Atlanta. He does not have a set price list (it changes with his mood), but he's worth the money.
