The BEST Salon I Have Ever Been To... – Hands down, the best salon I have ever been to. After moving to GA two years ago, I have visited over a dozen salons trying to find "the one." After visiting this salon last night, I can genuinely say I adore this place and I LOVE my hair. All of the employees at the front desk are very sweet, welcoming, and thorough. Chad, one of the owners, handled my full foil color and blow out. Chad was incredibly nice, personable and caring. He took the time with me to figure out what I really wanted. I did not feel rushed, at all - which I have felt at other salons in the past. I can honestly say I walked out the door with the BEST color and blow out I have ever had. This is coming from someone who consistently dyes their hair every 6 weeks. Also, the products seem amazing and smell incredible! I will definitely continue to come here and I highly, highly recommend it!!
I'm a fan! – have to tell you that I came to Bon Vivant after being greatly frustrated with the attitudes,prices and pushy product sales at an upscale salon in the Mall. (cut and color was costing me a fortune, not to mention several hours of my time).
Bon Vivant has been a breath of fresh air. Adrienne is my stylist, and is superb. My hair always looks fabulous when I leave, and I always get compliments!
Everyone there is pleasant to deal with, and it is such a pleasant atmosphere.
I haven't found them to be pushy at all about product sales. They ask, you answer yes or no, and it's done. No big deal. (Their protein spray is awesome, by the way).
training is impeccable! – A few weeks ago, I was invited to be a model at Bon Vivant for a haircutting class. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but what I recieved was amazing! The training that the staff goes through is really good. Everyone at the salon was so friendly and inviting. I got one of the best haircuts I've ever recieved, and I was actually educated on how to style my hair!! I will definately be back!!
Very upscale and friendly salon!! – I've been a client of Bon Vivant for over a year now, and I absolutely love it! I've seen several of the stylist there and they are all great. I always get great service and awesome hair. The products are absolutely amazing as well!! The products and service are both very much worth the money.
Buckhead in Woodstock!!!! – For years now, I have been going to this wonderful salon, With beautiful, caring stylist that treat me as if I'm Princess Diana! I have referred my daughters and friends there and found over the years, many of my church family and non-for-profit friends love them too! They are all full of energy and appeal to the younger generation, but have class and warmth that makes an spunky old lady like me just beating down their door ever 5 weeks. They take time to listen to what you want and even take more time before you come in to think about your color and plan for changing seasons. They really know how to keep any age fun and updated and in style. I love their products, too. They are like prescription vitamins for your hair but without the cost! The prices are more than reasonable and when I couldn't get in to see my favorite girl, she had one of the other girls who were trained with her to get me in and she consulted so that I was still taken care of before my reunion. It is a very upscale salon and reminds me of something I would see in Buckhead but it's right here in Woodstock!
My most favorite thing about the salon is that everyone there takes the time to know you and they truly care and look forward to seeing you every few weeks! They are some sweet girls and I will be a client forever.
Talented stylists, but a deceiving salon & unethical owners – Pros: the stylists are highly trained, skilled,very talented (most are even pleasant and personable), and they do amazing work with hair. The salon's products are amazing (they are on the expensive side, but I can assure you, they are well worth the price), BUT, the salon will lead you to believe the products are ONLY made for them, which is untrue. The company who produces their line of products also supplies other nationwide salons with these exact products; each salon can choose their specific line, so Bon Vivant does have an exclusive "line" and are the only salon in GA with these products, but these products are NOT developed by or produced solely for Bon Vivant and can be purchased at other salons in the U.S. This is very misleading and is unethical to tell people these are THEIR products.
Cons: management lacks sufficient professionalism, and has a very cocky attitude. The owners do a poor job at providing employees with a stable or pleasant work environment. Initially they come off as very pleasant, Christian people but they belittle and insult their employees, require far too strict requirements for employees (to clarify, I am NOT saying a dress code is too much to ask for any work place, but having your boss personally take you shopping and pick out the clothes that YOU have to buy for work and requiring $500 in MAC ONLY makeup is excessive, especially when the employee has to pay for all of this upfront to start the job when they have been unemployed for two years and don't have the money to put out upfront for these items- the owners don't care, lacking all empathy for their staff, and still require you to purchase everything THEY choose for you), and overall lack any compassion for their employees. What initially seemed like a dream job turned into a total nightmare. If they treat their employees this way, imagine how they talk about you [their clients] when they aren't around (and yes, they do talk about the clients, which is very unprofessional and rude). Many of the employees talk badly about their work experience, to quote one, "I am so done with this place", and they are terrified to tell the owners that they aren't wearing the required MAC makeup due to the expense. This type of environment is unhealthy and stressful for employees and will eventually start to rub off on the clients.
This salon is skilled and WILL do a great job on your hair; but if you are one of many who are misled into thinking this is a Christian-based salon with super nice, caring owners, you couldn't be more wrong. I suggest going to a comparable salon that will provide you with an equally great service without the high-and-mighty, better-than-thou atmosphere.
Awesome – I was invited to come to Bon Vivant as a model, which means that I will receive all my services for free from a beginning stylist. I wasn't really expecting anything, but I got everything. They were really kind and helpful. Plus they really like coupons! I love coupons; they're awesome. You get to save money and be in this crazy cool, relaxing atmosphere. I am a fan, and I can't wait for my next appointment!
BEST salon experience I have ever had!!!!! – I went into the salon not expecting to be pleased because I am VERY VERY picky about my hair, but from the very first second I walked into the salon, I felt completely comfortable. The front desk staff greeted me and gave me a tour of their beautiful salon. Again, wasnt expecting much because it is in Woodstock, but it looks like it belongs in SoHo, New York. Very high end and very impressive. My stylist was nice and gave me her honest opinion of what I should do or don't do to my hair. More importantly, she listen to what i wanted. I was waited upon and pampered the whole time. I was asked if i wanted cookies or coffee while i waited for my stylist to prepare my color, given magazines, and had THE BEST SCALP MASSAGE EVER!!!! I now have the best cut and style i have ever had. I will never go to another salon because I found exactly what I want here.
Not sure where these other people went but... – I have been going to Bon Vivant for approx. 5 years now. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with the receptionists (giving you reminder calls when your appointment is coming up....key!!!, with Kaitlyn, Rachael, and the owner. They seem to be refreshingly honest when you suggest a style or color that you SHOULD NOT try and then make some suggestions that would work for someone's face shape and skin color. Also, the gentleman owner is friendly and has been nothing but courteous and professional. The other thing that I can point out that is a bit "iffy" is the high prices on some of their products that they sell. My girls also have gotten their hair cut there (ages 13 and 11) and they have come out looking like a million bucks! I'm not wealthy by any means, but sometimes you have to pay a little more to get better quality. And when a stylist is in high demand, yes...it is a pain to get booked a month down the road, but once you are in...they prebook your dates for you so you are in like Flynn.
Over price for Woodstock, Ga – I have no idea where to start, I did get a good cut/color, but I get the same at my current salon for half the price.
First, I hate fake people when I left the salon they all say you look great.. pleaseeeee that is so cheessy.
The prices for Woodstock, Ga is crazy, this is not New York people stop acting like it.
Also, I went a couple times and I had to wait over a month to get in. I have never seen a salon like that in my life. I was happy to go back to my orginal salon, where I get treated right and feel like a person not falling for this act. I told my salon about my experience they laughed and shook their heads. I told them it was a free cut the first time so I could not turn that down, but after the second one a had to pay for I was gone.
Maybe the people in Woodstock fall for this act, but sorry you are being fooled.
