Just got my first color and cut at Lava Hair Studio. First time EVER that I have walked out of a salon and would not change a thing about the style of my hair. Emily B did an amazing job. Thanks

I gave it two stars and not one because the inside of salon is beautiful and the people are friendly. I was initially happy with the salon and my stylist after my first visit. My hair was pretty long and she had cut it in a short, cute style that really suited my face. Then when I went back to get a trim she cut a couple of extra inches off and the layering was not at all the same. My hair isn't thin but it is fine and after she was finished shaping it (as she called it) it looked really thin and WAY too short. I would have to put about a gallon of product in my hair every morning just to keep it from looking horrible and I had told her I wanted something that would be easy to maintain and would look good with just a wash and a blow dry. Then, the next two times when I went back and I tried to explain to her that I just wanted a trim and did not want any layers or anything she gave be the EXACT same hair cut that she had before saying she was shaping it not layering it. ARE YOU SERIOUS!!! I finally gave up going there and after a couple of months of letting it grow out and it looking terrible, I went to a different salon to get it fixed. The poor stylist told me there was no way he could fix the mess she had made in only one cut and proceeded to show me how uneven all the "shaping" was. He was shocked when I told him that the cut had been received at Lava. He knew the owner and couldn't believe that she had anyone working for her that would make the kind of mistakes that my stylist had. She had completely discounted the fact that I have fine hair and tried to give me a cut that was more suited for someone with really thick hair. I'm still having to let the layers grow out and have them slowly cut out. Thankfully, six months layers, my hair is finally looking healthy and full again.

This is the best salon that I've ever been to. The stylists know what they're doing and it shows. The salon is stylish and the employees are trendy and so nice. My hair looks great and is easy to fix in the mornings. The deep conditioning treatment made a huge difference in my hair. Lindsey was my stylist and I've already prebooked my next appointment!

I recently had my hair cut and colored at a salon next to the Outlets in Dawsonville. My hair looks and feels the best it ever has and it's easy to style on my own. My stylist was at the least experienced level but seemed like she knew exactly what she was doing and the results prove that she's highly educated. Thank goodness because I've searched for years for someone who knows what I am asking for. Emily listened and did exactly what I wanted. I didn't even have to show her a picture or anything. I'm so glad to have somewhere close to go to that's not too expensive and that knows what I want. Thanks Lava!!!

I had a similar experience to someone else who wrote a review. I have had blonde hair for years and have never had bad highlights in my life until I left lava hair studio. I wanted bright blonde highlights and walked out out looking like I had a pumpkin on my head. The color was streaks of gold and orange with dark roots. I notice it was not the best job while I was at the salon, but it wasn't until I got home and my husband commented on how it seemed to keep getting more orange as the night went on, that I realised how awful it was. I can't believe someone at a director level , aveda salon could not tell that my hair was over or under processed. I am disgusted and do not ever plan to go back. I am not even asking for a redo because I don't want to walk out looking like a striped leopard. Now I will probably end of spending another hundred dollars to have it fixed elsewhere. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SALON!!!!

My husband got me a gift card to Lava Hair Studio for my birthday. He had sensed that I was not feeling my best about myself and knew exactly what I needed. He had always gone there for his haircuts because he works nearby and they were always able to get him in immediately. I was hesitant about spending the money on myself but since he got me the gift card I had no choice. As soon as I walked in, I knew I was in good hands because the look and feel of the place told me that these people know what they are doing. I got all over color, highlights, and a haircut with Rebecca who is at the master level which is right in the middle. If she is at the middle, I can't imagine who is at the top. She was the best hairdresser I've ever had as far as knowing what was best for my hair. Even though she had her own assistant she still did almost everything herself. I was totally thrilled with the entire experience. When I left I bought my sister a gift card for her birthday next week. My hair turned out gorgeous- Brownie Points to the hubby this year!

Well, I'm kinda new to "hair studios", so suppose it's kinda my fault for not enrolling in the "How to Communicate with a Hair Stylist" prior to my visit.
Yes, I wanted a style.
Yes, I said I wanted to keep my length.
So, here I sit w/ my near waist length hair now 4 inches above my bra strap.
Yes, it will grow back out, but now it will take much time since it's layered in some weird, superficial way in the back. Sure looks like a headful of badly damaged hair to me!!

I just returned from an appointment at Lava Hair Studio. I had highlights, lowlights, and a haircut. My stylist was a total expert and artist. I have never had a stylist that was as knowledgeable about hair as she was. My hair looks exactly the way I've always wanted it to but nobody could ever get it right until now. My stylist's name was Samantha. The salon looked really stylish and clean and the shoulder ritual was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep in the chair. I will go there from now on and recommend everybody else to if they want to finally have the hair they've always wanted.

I was so impressed by this salon. The staff were so friendly and attentive to my friend and I. The rituals were awesome! My hair looks better than ever thanks to my stylist- Tanya-who is super talented. My friend is so happy too. I can't wait to go back. The prices are very affordable considering it is an upscale Aveda salon.

I just returned home from Lava Hair Studio where I had a total makeover- hair, makeup, waxing, everything. I was amazed at how well this salon performs. The stylists are so talented and obviously well educated at what they do. I didn't have a picture with me and I wasn't even sure what I wanted to have done. The stylist had a vision for what would bring the best out in me according to my features, etc. She worked her magic and Wala- I'm a new woman. A makeup expert did my makeup and even taught me how to apply it at home. I look better than I did 10 years ago thanks to Lava!! You get so much bang for your buck there! I'm so glad to have finally found a place where they are all about what they do and know what their doing!

My first impression of the salon was WOW. It is very upscale and stylish and the employees are very warm, friendly, and professional. Everyone gets a relaxing ritual with their service. I felt like I was queen for a day. The stylists perfect your color and cut and I love Aveda products which make my hair so healthy. The stylists style your hair to perfection and they explain how to do it yourself at home which is what I needed help with. I can't recommend this place enough. I can't believe that anyone would have anything bad to say. I guess some people are just impossible to please. I am so glad that I spotted them above Design Finds beside the Outlet Mall!! I am a believer of the LAVA magic!!

$160 down the drain and I have orange and dark brown hair with blonde spots. Initially I was happy with my stylist and received a good haircut there. I decided to let them do my low lights and foils. I have been a blonde for years and told her what I wanted. I like it blonde, and I wear my hair back in a ponytail.

My stylist seemed happy with her color treatment. She used no products on my hair for body and blew it dry flat against my head. I blew it dry with a round brush before I left - the stylist walked away to the back. With my hair down, I could not tell the coloring was so wrong.

Until the next day. I pulled my hair back in a ponytail and discovered that I had dark brown and red highlights with splotches of bleach around my hairline. The colors did not blend well. It looked as dark as before I went to the salon, with some red and blotchy highlights thrown in. And there are very few blonde highlights in my hair. The underside of my hair is so dark it looks oily. Yuck.

The salon offered to redo it with another stylist but my dermatologist did not suggest it due to the burns I received on my scalp from their steamer. My hair is thin and brittle and is also falling out from being postpartum. For these reasons I declined a redo. I can't let them keep processing my hair to fix what they started. My head has to heal first.

To top it all off, the salon will not give me my money back, even after explaining the burns and brittle hair.

I Discovered this salon throught the Noth Georgia magazine and loved my haircuts and color. Of the eight months using the services my stylist did not make my appointment three times because she was sick. The salon never used my cell phone number to contact me to let me know she was not going to make my appointment and then tried to push me over to other stylists. They did leave messages on my home phone on the days of my appointment but they also knew I worked. The last time this happened, not only did they try to push me onto another stylist but when I tried to make another appointment with the one I liked her hours have changed and was not available in the late afternoons or Saturday. What kind of salon only offers hours from 8:00 to 4:00? Needless to say I left feeling like I got jerked around, and now I will never reccommend this salon to anyone,
