I've had the pleasure of knowing Marti since before I even had hair to cut. Obviously, I wasn't really aware of the greatness of the person I had been privileged with knowing, and I probably won't fully understand until the day comes when I am forced to go elsewhere. (And that's not coming any time soon).
Having hair that I've always found to be nearly intolerable to deal with, Marti has always been there to guide me in how best to deal with a mass of frizzy, curly hair that on my own would probably be completely impossible to tame. I can always trust him to help me solve any of my hair troubles, even if it's as simple as a trim.
But from the simple to the extraordinary, Martin is dependably open to even the strangest ideas someone as young as a teenager can come up with, such as primary red streaks for a rare summer craze. He's a whiz with colouring and knows exactly how to match something as insane as red streaks to fairly average dark brown hair, as well as give a quick touch-up on greying hair (my mother has been receiving hair cuts from him since before I was even born, but heaven forbid Martin allow that to show through her hair!).
There's no better place in Atlanta for the most up-to-date trends for weddings, prom, galas, or just a day out at work. Martin Spradlin is simply the best.
Pros: Unique ideas and styles to every hair type and mere whim
I've been going to Martin for a bit over a year and love my hair! When I first moved to Atlanta, I went to another, nearby Buckhead salon that got good reviews, but was annoyed that the owner always worked on about 3 people at once (very thoughtless about his client's time) and I was also disappointed in the over-blonded look he gave me. Even though I asked him to tone it down next time, he went with more highlights, and I ended up with cheap-looking, damaged hair. (Of course, with his huge ego, he insisted it was perfection)
Not so with Martin! He KNOWS color inside and out. He listened to what I wanted, and then gave his professional opinion. He gave me what I wanted, but better! The cut is great and when I walk out of his salon, I feel like I look fabulous. Martin devotes all his time and attention to his clients, and we all love him. Don't waste your time with other salons. Martin is the best.
Pros: great cut and color
Martin is the first stylist to actually help me acheive the hairstyle I want. He listened when I talked about wanting to grow my hair long and has given me two great cuts to get me through the growing out phase, and to recover from a BAD haircut I experienced at another salon. I completely trust him, and the drive from Augusta to Atlanta is totally worth it! I never thought my hair would look its best at 40. Thanks Martin!
Pros: flexible with appointment schedule. I am from out of town and Martin gets me in with short notice.
I moved to Atlanta 4 years ago and after several average salon experiences, my sister in law convinced me to go to Martin last spring. I must say that I am almost 30, and Martin is by far the best hairstylist that I have ever been to. Instead of timidly cutting my hair with no feedback, Martin takes the initiative and time to make suggestions that really improved my hair. He talked me into highlights which have made a tremendous improvement to my look. I have received more compliments on my hair while going to Martin than I've received in my whole life. In addition to being an expert at what he does, Martin is just friendly and fun to be around, not at all snobby and pretentious like many boutique salons. He's so likable that I've actually ended up tagging along with my sister in law on two separate occasions when she has had her appointment just to hang out! If you are looking for a boring, complacent hairstylist who agrees with everything you say just to have you leave with ugly hair, Martin is not the one for you. However, if you are looking for a highly skilled and honest stylist with a great personality, Martin is it!
Martin has cut my hair several times and this last time was the best yet! I wanted a new look and I was not disappointed. Martin has so many creative ideas and will tell you exactly what will look good on you and what will work with your hair. He is great about giving you an original cut and showing you several different ways to style it. I'm still getting compliments on my hair nearly a month later. I can honestly say I'll never go anywhere else in Atlanta to get my hair cut!!
Pros: Always a great experience!
I absolutely love Martin! Everytime I leave his salon I feel like I just got the best cut and style I've ever had! I've been to many different stylists, but nobody else compares. I have very fine hair and Martin works miracles with it. He always teaches me how to style my new cut and shows me multiple ways I can do it... day, evening, etc. Not only are his skills amazing, but the cost of a wash, cut and style + lesson is not too expensive. Martin also has a wonderful personality! You will feel so comfortable with him. I would recommend him to the whole world if I could!
Pros: Always a great experience!
Cons: None at all :0)
Martin is great and knows exactly what he is doing. If you are a guy with curly or waivy hair go to Martin. I moved further away from Martin's salon and decided to go to a place closer to home. The Salon I chose ruined my hair. I will drive the extra mile to see Martin. He took a horrible hair cut, worked his magic, and fixed a huge ugly mess. Martin is a consultant and a stylist so listen to what he says.
I have lived in Atlanta for years and after trying numerous salons, I just was not very happy with my color. I got on Citysearch and read the reviews on Martin and decided to give him a try. It was one of the best decisions I ever made! Martin is amazing!! I absoutely love my color and it gets better with every visit (as Martin promised that it would). He is great at cutting hair, as well! It's so nice to be able to go to him for everything and I actually enjoy going to the salon now! I can't say enough great things about Martin and the service that he provides. I get so many compliments on my hair now. I am actually moving in a few weeks and am so sad to be leaving him. There are so many stylists out there, but ones like Martin are such a rarity. I wish that I could take Martin to NYC with me! I will miss you Martin!!
I have been seeing Martin for the better part of 2 years and he just keeps getting better and better! When I first started with him he told me that I should go shorter and lighter. Being that I had worn my hair in the same style for 20 years I was skeptical and told him to trim it. Well, after him begging to cut it every 6 weeks I finally gave in a week ago and let him have at it. Knowing that my husband might divorce me. :) He was right, as usual! I have recieved so many compliments that I hate that I walked around all those years with all that hair. And my husband loves it! I know it is hard to change but believe me, Martin knows what he is doing and YOU SHOULD LISTEN. I am glad that I have him as my talented style guru! Thankyou for everything Martin.
Pros: his patience, expertise and humor
Hi all I'm 21 years old and fashion and modeling is my life. Well, this past summer I had a huge event to go to so I went to Martin to glam my hair and make me look like a movie star. I brought a pic out of people magazine and told Martin make me look like this! To make a long story short, my hair ended up looking okay but not like the pic. Then, Martin explained to me why my hair couldn't be just like the picture. Any how I brought that same pic to my new hair guy, and OMG just like the pic no explantaion necessary.
Pros: He is Funny
After moving to Atlanta from Beverly Hills I thought I would never find a comparable sytlist and I now I have! I tried several salons in the past year and have never been completely satisfied. Martin is a true jem! He actually improved my hair color and the condition is remarkable. He even managed to work my 8 year old daughter in for a cut and gave her the most adorable stacked bob. He is so funny and a true master at his craft!
Pros: Martin, attention to detail...
My best friend has been seeing Martin since she moved here 3 years ago and has raved about him all the time....no I am here and I understand! He is great!!! My hilites rock! My hair looks like a movie star's and I understand how to style it now. Thanks Martin! I have already had many compliments and feel like a million dollars.
OK my sister came in town this past weekend from New York, where she works in a fancy salon on 7th Ave. Long story short...my husband sprang theater tickets on us and she needed to touch up her roots. She really didn't but she is soooo picky about her hair. Martin worked her in on his very busy Saturday and, somehow, talked Miss Perfection into a new red color with amber highlights. To my amazment SHE LOVED IT!! Said he would make a fortune in New York. She loved him and was so pleased with her hair. She wouldn't shut up about him all weekend. Seriously, THANKS Martin for the unbelievable!
Cons: isn't available 24/7
Beware ladies, Martin's work is on the decline. My friends and I have been going to Martin for a long time. In that time I have seen Martin become successful and regretfully arrogant. This was tolerable only because his work outweighed his arrogance. This is no longer the case! We have noticed that since Martin's clientele has increased dramatically so has his insatiable urge to talk trash and gossip behind the backs of the very people that put him on map, not to mention my last two cuts have been so average that I thought I went to the wrong salon.
Pros: Easy parking
Cons: Rude, late
I have been going to Martin now for two years. I started out with long, straight, no style, brown hair and now short,great style vibrant red hair with some hightlights. He is wonderful with hair, he knows what cuts and colors are in and out, and what is the best look for the season. HE listens to what you like, but also tells you what will look good with your shape of face and body. It is a very clean, pleasant, small salon so you get that peaceful,one on one time too yourself. He's great, I will never go know where else.
Pros: great outcomes
Martin is a fantastic stylist who is great for those who need help knowing what style would look good on them. He isn't shy in giving tips and great recommendations for what would work for you. The salon is small and personal enough that he always remembers you and what you need. He's great!
If you look down the list I have written a review for Martin before. In fact I initially gave Martin 5 stars and was very pleased with my hair cut. Then recently a friend of mine who just moved into town: was looking for a salon and informed me that a 2 star review was on Martin's city search. Well, I have to say my last hair cut was sub-par and I was shocked about the way he was talking about his previous customers. So maybe it was a fluke but Im going to have to agree with that 2 star review. Sorry Martin
I have been living in Atlanta for 6 years, and have really been a 'salon hopper' during my time here, even trying some of the bigger named salons, because I never found a place with an atmosphere that I felt comfortble in, a stylist that I felt I could trust completely AND communicate easily with about my preferences and needs, and a price that was sustainable for me. My search is over. Martin is so incredibly welcoming, the reviewer that said that he treats new customers as if they were long time family friends was exactly right! Usually, I hate the generic 'chit-chat' with stylists, but Martin's great sense of humor, warm spirit and genuine personality made the experience just delightful for me. I not at all a 'fashionista' and often feel very self-conscious in upscale salons. Not only was Martin super welcoming, the other ladies who where there before/after me were just as nice. It is a refreshing atmosphere, and suprising for a salon with a stylist who has the professional background/talent/experience that Martin does.
I came in with a 'rescue' hair cut, and even though it will take a few months for my hair to grow out to be exactly where 'his vision' has it to be, it looked GREAT when I walked out. The cut was so great, I came back to have him do color and wax my eyebrows, and my expectations were exceeded. I already scheduled an appointment for my next visit, and Martin will be my hairstylist from now on.
Pros: Stylist, atmosphere, cost, service
Several friends recommended that I try Martin for my hair color and style. That was about 7 years ago. I have been going to him ever since. He is fantastic! The color he does is great. He has such a good eye in knowing what color will suit you best and the product he uses is top-notch. As for the hairstyle, I just tell him to do what he wants. He always seems to know best. Just this last time I was in, I told him I needed a change. He was so excited and told me that I needed to go with layers. Of course, I followed his advice. I have received so many compliments on my new hairstyle. Martin?s salon is beautifully decorated and you will feel so comfortable there. It?s always great to see Martin and catch up on things. He also has a good ear if you ever need someone to talk to about your problems. :)
I've lived in Atlanta four years now and have tried salons such as Van Michael and Joseph and Friends, but the experiences can't compare to Martin's expertise or personal touch. I visited a couple months ago for color and was sold. Martin immediately makes you feel at ease and connects with you as though you've been a client for years. I've since gone back for a cut and scheduled Martin to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. It's only been a couple months, but I've received numerous compliments on my hair and requests for his information.
I have been going to Salon Martin Spradlin now for 8 months. Martin is fantastic! He is s very personable and ALWAYS does a great job. He listens to what you want and I have never been disappointed as I have in other salons. I have sent a few friends to him and they have been extremely happy as well. I would highly recommend Salon Martin Spradlin for anyone anyone looking for a great salon in Atlanta.
Pros: great service, personality and I am never disappointed
Each time I go to visit Martin I leave there so impressed with his talent! You would think that after 15 years of him styling, coloring, cutting and highlighting my hair, it would seem hum drum by now. But each time I leave there I feel even more beautiful than the last. He is everything you could ask for in a stylist. He is honest, loyal, talented, and a great friend. He would not lead you astray when it comes to something as important as you feeling good about your hair. He is just simply amazing and you will NOT be disappointed!
Pros: My hair looks great EVERY time.
Cons: He doesn't live with me to style my hair
OK so I?ve been to some of the finest salons in Atlanta. I?d been seeing the same colorist for years. He was the most popular at a certain high-priced salon. I had to make appointments months in advance to see him. One day, my appointment was cancelled last minute and there was NO ONE else at the salon who could see me within a week. I was desperate. My roots were terrible. So, I got on city search and started my research. I decided on Martin because of all the wonderful reviews. I was even a little suspicious of all the great reviews. I thought maybe these were all his friends, or maybe it?s a few people leaving multiple reviews. But I was desperate to get my roots fixed so I called to get an appointment. Martin was available to see me within a few days. And let me tell you all the reviews ARE TRUE!!! He is the best colorist I?ve ever been to. I would often have to go back to the ?popular? guy at the high priced salon to get a spot fixed here and there. I thought ?foil slippage? was just part of the process. Well I can tell you after 6 months with Martin, I?ve never had to go back for foils ?slipping? or spots missed. And I will never go back to that salon that charges way more than Martin does for sub par work. Not only is he great with color, he is also great with cuts and styling as well! And he is the best eyebrow waxer I?ve ever been to. Try Martin, you won?t be disappointed!
Pros: Expertise, value
A friend recommended Martin to me years ago and I?m so glad she did! I?ve been going to him ever since, and have brought others in for his magic touch as well. Martin is a wonderful colorist and stylist. He can consistently give you the look you want, and if you want to change it up ? which I?ve done several times - he has great ideas! I always feel comfortable with Martin because he is a perfectionist and I know I?m going to be happy with the outcome. Plus I always have great time with him along the way!
I I was on city search trying to find a new place to cut my hair. I saw all the reviews for Martin Spradlin and thought i would give it a try. I will admit i was a little nervous when i walked in, but Martin made me feel comfortable. He told me what would look good with my features and told me how to style it at home. I waited a week to write this review because i wanted to see how my hair was at home. I love the feel of it and how it makes me look. I will be returning again. Thank you for a wonderful haircut.
Pros: Intimate Salon, Easy going
Cons: Parking can be tough
I came onto citysearch with the tedious task of trying to find the "perfect" hairstylist, and I have found him. His salon is beautiful, and it made me feel right at home. I love the fact that his sole attention is for you and your hair. I did not have to deal with 10 different people, just Martin! My friend came with me while I got my hair done, and he made it just a fun girl's day out. We had a blast! When I came into his salon, my hair was VERY dark, but Martin made it a beautiful light color with amazing highlights that accentuates my skin tone. He told me what will and what won't look good on me, and I trusted him 100%. Martin definitely knows what he's doing, and he is GREAT at it! All the reviews on here are certainly true, and Martin, I know you're very busy! =) I know you're probably not going to read this anytime soon but once you do, I have to say again-- thanks so much! You are truly a genius, and I hope you never leave the Atlanta area. Love you darling!!!
Pros: Ending hair results, fun atmosphere, plenty parking, personal service
Cons: Martin won't come home with me to do my hair everyday!
Martin has been cutting and coloring my hair off and on for the last 16 years. I drive from the Douglasville area EVERY six weeks to see him because there just isn't anybody better anywhere! Trust me, I have tried and i have ALWAYS ended up back with Martin. This time back, I am definitely there to stay. His salon is very beautiful and relaxing. He will cater to your every need. We have such a blast together when I am there. It is always a fun experience!
Pros: Excellent service & care
Cons: Martin could use a bit more personaltiy! (JUST KIDDING!)
I see Martin for cut, color, eyebrows, and the company. Martin not only does great hair, but he truly knows how to make a woman feel beautiful. He is the most honest hairstylist I have ever worked with and I trust him with my hair completely. If Martin thought I should cut my long hair off and wear a boy cut b/c it would look good with my bone structure - I'd think about it for 2 seconds - then I would do it. After my first visit with Martin, my attitude toward my hair changed; I hardly ever throw my hair up into a ponytail anymore, I LOVE my hair, the color, the layers, the way it falls around my face. He knows hair and he knows what will look good for each person's unique face, body, and style. I have dark brown hair and have always felt like there is not much that can be done with it from a color standpoint, but I was wrong and thanks to Martin, I LOVE MY HAIR!
I have known Marty for 20 years. He did my hair when I first moved to Atlanta and still does it today. He has done my two daughters' hair since they were old enough to sit still. He is one of the most creative stylist I have seen. Each one of us has different hair and personalities. Marty works with us to maintain a unique style and we are frequently complemented on his work. I sincerely recommend him!
I have been a customer of Martin's for well over 10 years & could very possibly be his most long distance customer. I live on the Island of St. Croix in the Virgin Islands and travel to Atlanta frequently, some trips which are scheduled specifically to see Martin. Martin is extremely talented and has got to be the tops in his profession. I have very long hair, almost waist length (and Martin only asks to cut it maybe every other visit, a small joke between the 2 of us). He does an excellent job on highlighting and lowlighting and my hair is a bit of a challenge since we're trying to "disguise" those grey hairs that continue to creep in around my face! What a beautiful job he always does with the color. It never fails, the day I see Martin I get at least 3 compliments on my hair before the day is over. He's the only stylist my husband trusts to keep the color perfect and of course the length! Martin is extremely personable and adds that personal touch to every thing he offers in his salon! He is truly a gem! JPayne
One time in 20 years I let someone other than Martin cut my hair and it was disaster. I think he was out of town and I was desperate. I don't recall how, but he had to fix it when he returned and I don't believe he even scolded me, probably thinking that the lesson had been learned and I wouldn't stray again.
In our early days Martin had creative carte blanche and did some very fine work - people would stop me on the street and ask who does my hair. Presently I have rather long hair, which Martin detests and hopes I'll get over eventually. He trims it meanwhile, lovingly and patiently.
An exceptional stylist, but also just a marvelous human being -
Martin brings perfectionism to his work, a personal touch to making his clients happy in an incredibly low-key boutique salon setting. Outstanding colorist adapting to his clients overall coloring; and a great sense of what cut/style suits his clients face. The peripheral services are another area where Martin shines - style for an event/wedding, make up and brow waxing. You walk out of Martin's studio feeling great and looking great. Because he is so good at what he does, you are able to look that way for the subsequent weeks until you visit again. That is an indication of a great stylist.
usually i dread going to a hair salon because i've never been one to put much effort or thought into my hairstyle, which, for some reason, seems to offend the hairstylists i've been to. in order to avoid any hair salons with snobbish attitudes i came to citysearch and found martin. he made me feel at ease about my hair and was not judgemental about my lack of hairstyling finesse. also, i have baby fine hair and he was able to make it look full of body and sass. martin's salon was kind of like an upscale salon version of Cheers--martin knew everyone's name and was very warm and inviting in conversation. although the salon is a little small and required some musical chair-playing at times, i thoroughly enjoyed my time there and absolutely love my haircut!
I live in Douglasville and have been going to Martin for thirteen years. I always look forward to my appointments, because not only does he do a great job, Martin is very personable and we have a great time. I have tried different salons in Douglasville, but I always keep going back to Martin because I love the way he cuts and colors my hair. I would highly recommen Martin. I LOVE YOU MARTIN!!!
When I moved here almost three years ago, I asked a friend of mine who did her hair because her hair was just beautiful, both the cut and color. She gave me Martin's name and I have been going to him ever since the first time because he does an awesome job! He really knows how to cut thick hair, which can be a challenge and he is just awsome with color. He gets it just right. He is a true artist which is very hard to find. I feel so lucky to have been referrred to him by my friend and I am grateful to have him continue to make me feel beautiful every time I walk out of his salon. Thanks so much, Martin!
Martin is FABULOUS. On my 45th birthday my daughter told me it was time for a change. She gave me a trip to Martin?s salon. I have been grey since I was 30 and have naturally curly hair. Martin changed my entire look by changing my hair color and style. He gave me highlights and taught me how to use a hair dryer. Martin took the time to show me how to style my hair. He forced me to learn how to use a styling brush and hair dryer so I could duplicate his fabulous look at home. He is patient with those that are not quick learners like me (thank goodness). Martin even shaped my eye brows to perfection. I?ve never received so many compliments on my looks. Friends and co workers could not believe how the new style made me look so much younger. His shampoos and conditioners help keep my hair looking young and silky. I've been coming to Martin for 5 year. I see Martin every 4 weeks and book a year in advance. If you are looking for someone to help you understand your hair Martin is the stylist for you.
Pros: Great Atmosphere, not a factory shop, personal and dedicated service
Just went to Martin?s after reading all the great reviews on citysearch. When I first arrived at his salon I was a little skeptical at the size of the salon. BUT not at all skeptical anymore since I just left there with the best hair style EVER. This is better than any style I have received in the past from any of the LARGE salons in Atlanta plus I didn?t have to tip 10 different people for touching my hair. A true genius in his field. LOVE HIM
I've been a client of Martin's for over 10 years and truly enjoy referring friends and acquaintances to him because everyone loves me for it! Martin truly has intuition for a person's individual style and comfort zone and delivers accordingly. Whether I see a 18 year old fashionista or a 50 year old grandmother in the salon they always look comfortable and confident with their hair.
Martin is an absolute perfectionist when it comes to color - you will not find someone more dedicated to the art and science of getting it right. I have NEVER been disappointed with my color. His is great at adapting my hairstyle to fit my ever changing professional and personal wants. He even styled my hair for my wedding. On top of it call, Martin has a huge heart and makes all of his customers feel really special.
Give Salon Martin Spradlin a try...you won't regret it.
I am so lucky to have Martin as my hair stylist. Martin always knows what fits me, and my hair always looks like perfection when I leave. With Martin, I have great highlights, a cute cut, and shaped brows! Thanks for everything you do, Martin!
For over a year since I moved to Atlanta, I tried several salons for my hair and couldn?t find the right one. Luckily a friend of mine recommended Salon Martin Spradlin. I gave it a try and absolutely fell in love with it.
The atmosphere in the salon is soothing and friendly, and Martin is such a genius. It took no time for him to find the right style and color for my hair. With his talent, Martin has given me a great new look. Not only does the style fit me but also the highlights he added enhances my natural hair color. I've gotten numerous compliments everywhere in town or out of town on vacation. I've never been so happy with my hair. If you are looking for a great unique hair style, Salon Martin Spradlin is the right place to go!
Martin is the best! I love the relaxing atmosphere of his salon, and I LOVE that he can do amazing color and a fabulous cut, plus wax my eyebrows all in one sitting! Sooo, much better than the places where you have to book one service with the colorist, another with the cutter, and a thrid with the waxer... who has time for that? I highly recomend Salon Martin Spradlin to anyone!
Martin truly gives the best haircuts I've ever experienced! He is supertalented and takes extra time to make sure my hairstyle is the best for my lifestyle! The salon is comfortable, super personal and a treat not to have to deal with a receptionist, escort to get a gown, hairwasher, colorist, stylist, etc that comes with all the mega salons. It's just you, Martin and your hair!
Martin has been doing my hair for several years and he always does a fabulous job. The boutique style salon and his attention to detail are fantastic! I switched over to Martin from a larger Buckhead salon based on a friend's recommendation. I have never been happier with my cut and color. The relaxed atmosphere is a welcome change from the large salons in the area. He is the best!
I met Martin many years ago while living in Atlanta. He began doing my hair and quickly became a dear friend. He is a wonderfully gifted, sensitive artist. He takes into such careful consideration the "whole you" while performing his magic! I recently visited Atlanta for a conference and had the opportunity to see his new salon - perfect, just as I would expect. P.S. Of course, I love his hair styling abilities, but he's also fantasic at make up application - I had no ideas my eyes could look like that!!
Pros: Personal Service
Cons: Hard to get there from Ohio
I actually went to Martin because of all the recommendations on city search and believe me its all true. Martin is so fantastic... I walked in with my hair being a disaster, I had tried to cut it myself and give myself highlights- I know major mistake! I had my engagement party a few days after I went to Martin and I got compliments about my hair from EVERYONE there. I seriously walked out of his salon looking like a girl from one of those shampoo commercials! He works all this magic at GREAT prices and with GREAT conversation!
I've been to all those other snotty salons around the city and trust me not only does it look better when Martin did my hair but you actually have fun getting your hair done with Martin! He gives you great individual attention and shows you exactly how to style your hair for your cut. Think about a dream trip to the salon and that's what you get with Martin! Now I am going to have him do the hair and make up for all my bridesmaids for my wedding and of course for ME! Martin is the BEST! Thanks Martin-Sarah :)
Pros: PERFECT! great highlights, great cut, teaches you how to do your hair, not snooty, fun to talk to!
Martin Spradlin has been a pleasure to work with for over 9 years. I found Martin through a friend years ago when I worked in Buckhead, and it was very convenient to have appointments right after work because he was right around the corner. Yes, he was a great colorist and stylist - and I realized over the years, when my career changed and my work wasn't right around the corner, that he just couldn't be replaced. So for many years now, I drive past many other stylists north of Atlanta to make my way back to Martin every month and a half or so. He's professional, accomodating and extremely talented. I get compliments literally weekly, and have for years, on both my cut and color. Martin is consistently perfectionistic in his work for me, and I always know I can count on him to deliver. Best of all, though, Martin is loyal to his customers and has a heart of gold. My children love the treat of a cut by Martin as well. He can't be beat on talent, service and just a pleasure of a person to have in your life. I can't imagine trustiing anyone else! Martin Spradlin is a true Atlanta treasure.
Pros: Always exceeds expectations
Cons: Can't think of one
Worldly technique in an exquisitely charming atmosphere? I cannot think of a better description. It?s hard to combine the art of Manhattan?s finest hairstylists with the charm of Buckhead, but Martin has done it. His incredible appreciation of the art of hairstyling has melded completely with his heart and soul. This combination in turn has made me a permanent fixture of Salon Martin Spradlin.
Pros: simply the best!
I have been a client of Martin Spradlin for many years and I wouldn't consider going any where else. Why?
Because it is a pleasure evey time I have an appointment. The salon is gorgeous but not intimidating. He is genuinely talented with hair, but in addition to that he is a wonderful person who really wants you to look your best. He's a great listener and also is willing to give you suggestions that can really make you look your best. Both my daughters, when they lived in Atlanta, loved going to him and since they have moved far away, they have never found anyone who even comes close to the great haircuts that Martin gives. My husband, who has never wanted to even walk into a salon has become a regular with Martin and now raves about the hair cut he gets, plus he loves the massage with the shampoo. I think Martin is the best all around sylist in town. GIve him a try, if you want a really great experience.
At the urging of one of my husband's clients and a last straw with my previous stylist, I finally decided to give Martin a try. For some reason I always thought it best to go to the big-name salons in town, but my first evening with Martin changed that forever! He was so attentive and I couldn't believe I was his only client for two hours...I was so used to the assembly line of the large salons. We had terrific conversation and I felt so comfortable right off the bat with him. He does an awesome job with my color and hair style. Best of all, he will really listen to you to understand your lifestyle and your preferences to help you come up with the right style for you. Not to mention hanging out with him is a BLAST!
Now if the above doesn't convince you to contact Martin right away, hear this: my husband, a real "guy's guy", who up until a couple of months ago refused to rise above the $9 barber clipper cut, has converted and GENUINELY ENJOYS GETTING HIS HAIR CUT BY MARTIN! And is happy to pay for it! This was a feat I never expected to pull off.
I will be eternally grateful to Martin for what he does to make me look great, but of equal importance, for giving some style to the guy I have to look at for the rest of my life! ;)
I have been going to Martin for the past 10 years and it's amazing how many people stop me to comment on my hair color and now even my hair cut. I love going to Martin. I know that my hair looks great because complete strangers stop me and tell me so! Not only are the results amazing, but his new salon is clean, cozy and beautifully decorated. You feel like you are over at your friend's house while you are there and he is a lot of fun, too. I have basically been able to change all of my friends from going to their previous salons to coming to Martin. He's that good. He did my wedding hair and makeup as well and people have been snagging photos of my hair from my online wedding album and putting them in their wedding planning online bios as examples of what they want their hair to look like on their wedding day! Now if that isn't a compliment, I don't know what is!
Pros: gorgeous salon, amazing results, offers great products
Cons: limited parking
