Mary Babineau has been my stylist for 6+ years. She was referred to me by another friend when she was at another salon. Mary is by far, the best stylist I have had in 20 years and that includes a very well known Beverly Hills salon. She is an expert with highlights. Everyone that I have referred has raved about how great their hair looks and how well it grows out which we all know is key to great highlights. The bonus is that Mary is a lovely person to know and always works to accommodate your schedule. The Salon is very quirky and fun in decor. The owner and staff are very professional and friendly. If you are looking for a new salon I can highly recommend the Atomic Salon.
Tracey did an AMAZING job! She showed me that Hair Styling/cutting/etc is an art form! Not only is the Salon extremely clean but the staff is also incredibly polite and will accommodate in any way. I recommend Atomic Salon and Tracey to everyone!
Dena was FANTASTIC! I had a great, laid-back time getting a gorgeous cut and useful tips on styling that were right for me and my lifestyle. I highly recommend Atomic Salon, particularly Dena. Enjoy!
Upset Customer – Such an AWFUL EXPERIENCE. Have always enjoyed each visit there until recently, Joey decided to shut the water off by the end of the night. When I had a 6 o'clock appointment that lasted until 8:30. I still had to have my hair rinsed and couldn't because Joey decided to shut the water off throughout the salon without notifying my hair stylist. I had to leave that night with bleach and foils still in my hair! I wanted to speak with him the next day about the issue and he was "too busy." He couldn't speak to me up front and only offered a free shampoo/conditioner. Wow.... thanks! (not) COMPLETE DISSAPOINTMENT!!
Joey is the GREATEST – I literally JUST got home from my hair appointment with Joey and absolutely had to jump on and give a review. If you have not been here, I seriously urge you to make an appointment. I'd never been here before, and only went because of a Gift Certificate I had.
Needless to say, They will see me again and again! Not only is it in a great location, but the service and attention to detail was on point, and the skill of the stylists were remarkable, and they are proficient in ALL types of hair (which I was initially worried about).
I told Joey that I didn't really know what I wanted but didn't want it too short and just something that fits my face. I was watching him, but I still don't know how he did what he did. I even compared Joey to Edward Scissorhands, because he was like an artist with my hair.
End Result - My hair has never looked better! I actually left feeling beautiful :D
Best Salon I've Ever Been To! – This is by far the greatest salon I have ever been to. Joey at Atomic has been cutting my hair since I was in high school and I can't imagine ever going anywhere else. Before I met him, I would cry whenever I got even a trim. Now I am always guaranteed to leave with a big smile on my face! He has styled my hair at all different lengths and colored it as well - perfect every single time. He even did my hair for Senior prom. He knows exactly how to style and cut hair for every occasion, want, or need. The salon is ALWAYS clean, the people there are ALWAYS friendly, and I would recommend Atomic (and Joey!) above all else. Don't go anywhere else when you can go to Atomic!
Always a great cut! – 2 years ago, I was looking for a change in stylists and took a chance on Joey at Atomic Salon. (He was a stylist for a mom-to-be fashion show I participated in). I had a great first experience and have continued to have my cut & color done by Joey. He listens to what you want and makes suggestions about style or color based on your hair type. I have never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes for my appointment and have always left with a haircut that exceeded my expectations. If you need a new stylist/salon, take a chance on Atomic.
Personal, Consistent Service, Attention to Detail – I am often stopped and asked "who does your highlights?" I tell them "The man upstairs does my highlights (white/grey), but Joey at Atomic does my low lights". I have been going to Joey for over 5 years and have always been more than pleased. Joey and Shannon have created an atmosphere of funky creativity that remains professional and service oriented.
Excellent and Consistant Stylists – I am a bit particular, since I have been getting highlights for a very long time. The problem I always run into is the lack of consistency with both my cut and color. You won't find that problem here.
Joey always spends a lot of time on my hair and when I leave it looks just as good, if not better than the first time I came in.
The staff there is courteous and considerate. The one time that I waited a few minutes for Joey, they brought me a beverage. This is not the cheapest salon, nor is it the most expensive....I recommend this salon to both family and friends.
Go see Joey! – I've been getting my hair cut and colored by Joey at Atomic Salon for 7 years now. I keep coming back because after all this time, I still get compliments on my hair. He's attentive to detail and wants you to look good and be comfortable with how you look when you leave his chair. He's professional and talented.
