An Amazing Experience – A recent visit to Orbit for both myself and my roomate has been nothing short of incredible. We were both treated royally by our stylist Rebecca and have continued to receive compliments from stangers for both the color and the cut. I counted the numerous compliments received just last weekend (9) with regard to my hair color. This happened to be a custom blend specially formulated for me that emcompasses amazing depth and functionality...Form and Function at it's finest, don't pass this Salon up as few in this city come close to the level of hip urban chicness!! Two thumbs up in my book!!
hairdo – After finding Orbit on City Search, with such high recommendations, I knew I had finally found a unique salon that I was excited about visiting. But what happened??? Its a ghost town now! And the infectious urban "energy" seems to have vanished along with some of the staff. I'm outta Orbit!
NO Longer the place – Used to have a lot more going for it. Now it is just dirty and dark. Only one stylist left, all the good people are gone. Avoid this place, unless you like being treated like a less than!
My search has ended. – After decades of terrible haircuts and various other hair nightmares, my search has ended at Orbit. From the moment I walked through the door I could tell this was going to be different. The entire staff is warm and friendly, the salon space funky and relaxing, and then there is Arthur. What can I say about him? Arthur is to hair what Monet,Renoir,Picasso,etc. are to painting. He is very detailed and gives you 110% of his time and attention. He cares and it shows! I don't care if I live in Bora Bora, I will fly back to Atlanta because no one, except Arthur, will touch my hair-EVER.
What can I say? – Whoever said "It's Just Hair" never had their haircut by Arthur at Orbit Salon. I went to him for the first time on a whim a couple of weeks ago and I feel like a new person. It's amazing how something so seemingly small can make such a difference in your life. People, left and right, have complimented me on my hair. Arthur took the time to make thought out suggestions and explained to me what he was doing every step of the way. I have never received such outstanding service at Van Michaels or the uppity over priced salons of Buckhead. THANK YOU ARTHUR! and ORBIT!
thankyousomuch! – Thank You Arthur! And Thank You Citysearch! I've been to a million salons in Atlanta and have a million horror stories, but not anymore. Arthur took one look at me and knew exactly what to do. The cut, the color, the conversation - it's perfect and I found it all through citysearch.
Arthur Rocks! – Finally, we found a place we will go back to. We have visited several other salons in the city and have never felt saticfied enough to return for a second time. After seeing Orbit voted Citysearches best salon, we decided to give it a try. Before booking our appointments we found a great promotion on thier website, "Bring a Friend and get one service for Free". Arthur was great, he was friendly and we had an honest and open consultation before he started. Our cuts were awesome and the color was good too. We highly reccomend taking advantage of this great promotion, as it will give you a chance to try out the salon without dishing out a whole lotta cash! This is one place we will visit again!! Thanks Arthur! JoAnn & Juleen
"Out of this..." – Like most of the East Atlanta crowd, i've noticed that if you don't work in the neighborhood, then you are probably passing through or panhandling. Unless your the bar-tender. I'm pretty busy myself, and the last thing i want, is to spend hours at a barber shop waiting to get my "hair did." I only know of one person who can cut my hair five minutes before I have to run down the street to be five minute late for work. It's Casey. He's truly out of this world. I've never been unhappy with his artistic stlye. Casey has always listened to me and executed my wishes with scissor sharp percission. I feel he truly wants for your happiness, dare i say, more than your money. No one else has touched my hair since i have stepped in Orbit. Their the best, he's the coolest, and my hair's the happiest.
Arthur is the one – I just saw Arthur for the first time, and I am thrilled. I have never been so happy. It is better that I thought it would be, and that rarely happens. I have been to several stylists in Atlanta, but none as skilled as Arthur. A colorist like him is seldom found in Atlanta. I have been coloring my hair for years, and I think he did the best job I have ever had. He really made my hair look fantastic. He took all the time he needed, and it shows!
Cooly modern, Orbit Salon is stellar! – Having been to East Atlanta many times to dine or shop, my first visit to Orbit Salon fully captured the mood of this ecclectic neighborhood. With equal parts retro and modern decor, I knew I was in a hip salon, but felt ease that I've never felt in "fancier" places of Atlanta. Arthur Joseph Olerud cut and flat-ironed my boring long hair with such precision and attention, that I can't imagine how awesome his funkier styles must be! Not only was I impressed by his professionalism, knowledge and charisma, but Orbit's staff was equally groovy. Orbit Salon is a hidden treasure worth seeking...
