Relaxed Vibe - Janelle gives great hair! – A stop at Rockit always brightens my day. I have been going there for years. Standard fare includes; great service, conversation, shampoo, neck massage, and stylish cut. Janelle can coif famous grunge rockstars to conservative pilots. Give her a try, you will not be disappointed.
Wanna Be A Rockstar? – I'm a musician through and through and my hairstyle and look is a HUGE part of my business...so when my image was starving for creativity, I sought immediate help! A southern songstress trying to work in Nashville, I needed something fresh and "star-quality", edgy even, but nothing too rock-em-shock-em outrageous...after perusing Rockit's website, I knew this was the cure to my banal locks crisis...My hair is naturally dark DARK brown, so most stylists (TOO MANY TO COUNT) have run at the thought of lightening my chocolate tresses...but not Stephanie a.k.a. "the color diva" at this hip salon. After 12 years of experience, this totally sweet and down-to-earth gal knew exactly how to take my color to the next level. We shared ideas and came to an agreement ending with her reassuring, "just trust me...you're gonna love it." AND INDEED I DID. The gorgeous shades of "ego" red and golden and pale blonde lowlights were perfectly woven into my natural color to create a subtle, yet funky brightness that perked up my pale complexion and kicked my style into overdrive. It's the perfect style to accompany a perfect experience: my best friend and I loved the hot pink, zebra print, guitar-studded walls of this rocking hair haven...and even enjoyed chatting it up with the other stylists about our top five rockers through the years! I have found a new home for my new 'do...and that home is ROCKIT SALON. I left feeling like a star. You should, too!
Best Vibe in Atlanta – Love this salon, it's so refreshing to find a place where you truly get what you pay for. My entire family goes to Rockit. Very cool space and people...we love the down to earth people that work here! Janelle does our hair and has always done an excellent job. It's so hard to find someone that listens, improves your style and is REAL. Color & cut is always RIGHT ON. Conversations are always great as well!
The mananger is always so fun & on it! The owner is very cool / fun and the other stylists are very cool & personable. The products they carry ROCK!!
Here's a great bonus...Tracy Ewell has great cosmetic & skin care products here as well. She always takes time to help with the right product for my skin type & it's amazing how she can match her cosmetic products to your skin tone.
I always walk out of Rockit happy & feeling like a new person. I love being able to find quality service, hair products, make up & skin care in the city w/out having drive to buckhead.
I highly recommend Rockit.
Amazing Color!!! Amazing Cut!!! – I walked out of Rockit feeling like I belonged on the cover of a magazine! After going semi-gray a few years ago, I have had the hardest time finding a hairdresser to funk up my hair without making me look fake?kind of an oxymoron I know...but have you ever gotten your hair colored and it is too ?Elvira? dark or too burgundy red?? A friend referred me to Janelle at Rockit after my endless search through all the high-end/high priced conveyer belt salons and she found the perfect color the first time. She also talked me into highlights that are not obnoxious chunks, just enough to lighten my face and turn my natural brown/gray drab hair into fab! The cut is so cute?I have long hair and she would not let me cut it off?she just framed my face a bit with the sides and took off the dead ends!! I was way nervous at first glance because some of the stylists have crazy funky hair color and I thought another color mishap was in my future?but let me just tell you I look ten years younger!!! Also Tracey their make-up artist did my eyebrows and makeup during my color process while the office manager gave me a shoulder and hand massage?HELLO?all while I was sipping on wine!!! I walked out of there feeling like a new person?.I wish I could post a picture to show everyone a before and after!! I mean I was hot before mind you?HA! Just a little joke! All my thanks Janelle & friends for the Rock Star service. I have already made my next appt at Rockit!!
Have to agree.. Wont go back – I have to agree with aubs312005. I too went to see Janelle a couple of times and was less than thrilled with her cold attitude. The first time I saw her was after I talked to her on the phone and had to reschedule my appointment. She was kind of short with me on the phone which shocked me a little bit, but I let it go because I probably upset her schedule and couldn't really blame her for feeling put out. But, when I showed up for my rescheduled appointment, she was still kind of rude like I had a black mark next to my name or something and treated me like I was keeping her from doing something she'd much rather be doing. I'm not a picky customer and I'm not difficult to work with at all. I just thought I caught her on a bad day.
The haircut was pretty good so I decided to go back and try again, thinking that maybe she wouldn't be so moody the next time. That time was just the same. I tried to be happy but not too chatty in case I distracted her from cutting my hair. Just really spoke when I was spoken to, which wasn't very much because she spent more time talking to other salon employees than she did with me. Again, it seemed that the last thing she wanted to do was to be there cutting my hair. Overall, she did a pretty good cut which grew out nicely, but I have to admit that I just can't face going back and getting the same really-don't-want-to-be-here attitude. I'd rather go somewhere where I felt like my stylist was happy to be there, and for me to be their customer.
Highly recommend Janelle – I have been going to Rockit for over a year and Janelle has been doing my hair the whole time. I am originally from NYC and have been to the top salons. I honestly have never had a stylist who understands my hair as much as Janelle. Not only does Janelle understand my hair, but my hair has never looked as good. We all have long days and if I had clients come to me at the end of the day, I can tell you I may not always be in the most upbeat mood. Try standing on your feet all day for over 8 hrs and I think we can cut our stylists some slack. I highly recommend Janelle and if you do not believe me, look at a recent issue of Allure magazine, where Janelle was featured. Keep up the great work Rockit! -Maureen
I have been getting my hair cut at rockit from day 1. I love what Dana has done with rockit. It TRULY ROCKS! Great people, great place and ROCKIN hair. I even met my wife at Rockit. What about that? :)
Every once in a wile I read the reviews on city search. Most people give what I feel is a true review, Good or Bad. Then you get those people who need to slam people on-line but are to small to leave their name. Sad:(
Can you get a GREAT dew every single time you go to a salon? I would hope so. I have had GREAT haircuts at Rockit and a couple of ok haircuts at Rockit. More great than ok.
But ever single time I go to Rockit I have the experience of getting to know the people who work there, the clients who come there and people who just stop by to have a glass of wine after work. That ROCKS! Rockit has a wonderful energy, great staff and not a bad wine selection.
Getting to know them has been great. I have enjoyed getting to know Rockit, it's staff and it's clients over the last couple of years and look forward to many more, good and or bad.
Bottom line: great hair cuts.... GREAT people and a amazing experience!
Thank you Dana and everyone at Rockit.
Love you guys
Over priced, under talented, but full of attitude – I visited Rockit several times. I'm willing to give everything a fair chance. From the get go Janelle was full of complaints. Always tired, always so happy I was her final client for the day, something on her ALWAYS hurt. I spent $260 including tip for cut and double process color. She warned me the highlight tone may bleach out and just to come back if they did and she would re tone. They did bleached out and I did return. She toned my highlights TOO DARK, essentially wiping out what I had just spent so much money on 3 weeks prior. I gave her another chance. I went back for a haircut and color (single process - I gave up trying to get my highlights right). The color was good (can't really screw up brown), but this time she gave me the EXACT cut I had always told her I didn't want - a round bob. Yes, a round bob from this rock and roll salon. Needless to say, I've never gone back. A couple weeks ago my friend had an appointment with Janelle. The salon called her the same day of the appointment to tell her that the appointment before her's had canceled, so Janelle decided to go home for the day and could she please reschedule. Needless to say she switched salons as well. Too expensive, not creative (hello! a round bob?!), and too much attitude.
Yeah not so much... – I've had my hair cut here and I've got several friends who get their hair cut here. The cuts are ok, the color good (Stephanie) but overall the service (front of house) ruins it. I know it recently won Best Of in a couple of publications but come on! There's no reason an award winning salon should be run by an incompetent monkey. Rude? Just honest. You'll pay big salon prices but you won't get big salon customer service. Book your appointment a month out and pray to god you (or more likely they!) don't have to reschedule - cause it ain't gonna happen.
More than I could imagine!!! – I recently moved to the area, so I've been putting off finding a new salon. One day i saw a girl in Macy's who had the most beautiful hair, so i stopped her and asked where she went. She said she went to Rockit and a girl named Tiffany does her hair. I called and made an appointment THAT DAY! I was in her chair within a couple days and walked out that day feeling the best I have in years. The way she did my highlights and haircut was nothing I had ever seen before. It is so natural, but fun and not boring too. I am so pleased to have found her in this adorable salon!!!
