Okay....i LOVE this salon!!! Cortex is sooo laid back & all of the staff is super helpful. I get cut & color at a great price with Skip. She takes her time & really does an amazing job! Over the past 3 years we've done it all - short,

I recently decided that I needed a change in my hairstyle. My current stylist had me stuck in the same style for years and after recently having my first child I thought I needed a style that didn't make me feel like I had "mom hair".

Rest assured, the reviews about the unpretentious nature of this salon are true... This salon is entirely laid back and friendly. I formerly had my hair done at Vis a Vis, loved the results but ceased going due to the staggering snootiness of the staff... and clients for that matter.

Cortex is far superior. I highly recommend Skip as she is very adept, easy to talk to (no awkward hairstyling silence) and fun. As for the hair, I briefly articulated my desired hair stlye / color and she completely exceeded my expectations!

For those of you with thick, straight hair who want layers that fall naturally, Skip will not disappoint.

This place is awesome and I think Corey is fantastic. I have naturally curly hair and have always loved the cut and color he does with my hair. I sent my straight-haired friend to him as well and she loved him too. He has never once made me feel rushed (which is rare for a salon) and the one time I wasn't 100% pleased, he made me a new appointment immediately and fixed the problem perfectly. Talk about phenomenal customer service. I can not speak enough for his talent, customer service skills and general pleasantness.

Everybody at Cortex is so friendly and talented. I constantly look around and see other stylists working wonders as well. This salon is very welcoming and not pretentious at all. Highly recommended.

I've been searching for a stylist for a while now. I finally had my hair cut into an adorable bob and highlighted by Skip. I could not be happier with the results! Skip is a great listener, she understood exactly what I wanted in my cut and color. She then took her time and FINALLY, after a year of so-so hair, I have EXACTLY what I want. Not only did she do an amazing job of making the vision in my head a reality, she is a total sweetheart and enjoyable to talk to.

I have to say that I had the WORSTexperience at Cortex. First off, I was a loyal customer of 12 yrs-so I would expect more out of this place. But after my hairdresser (who I LOVED) left, they transferred my appointment to a new stylist who was maybe a year out of beauty school and charged me the same price as my seasoned stylist Josh. For over 200, I had my hair ruined. The highlights were in random places all over my head and they all seemed to be in one section. My cut was cute, but that was the only plus. I called and came in for my hair to be fixed and after another failed attempt, I frantically called around looking for my beloved hairdresser.

When I entered the 2nd salon to have my hair FIXED-I could hear the stylists trying to determine who was responsible for doing that to my hair as I sat waiting for my appointment.) The owner of that salon even came out to talk with me to make sure that the bad color/ highlight job did not come from their salon! After spending 200+ at Cortex and 200 at the second place, I was very upset (but after having my highlights done for the 3rd time in one week, it finally looked presentable....until I got it fixed I had random strips of crayola red and dark brown and white in my hair.....not something I would expect from a pricey salon)

Luckily I found Josh at Urban Body after calling around and asking salons in the area if a Josh recently starting working there. The front desk at Cortex would not tell me where Josh now worked after I explained what an awful experience that I had and that I would not be back. I didn't get a call from the owner or anything. I guess being a customer of 12 yrs doesn't mean much there. And I will say that it seems that something is going on behind the scenes there b/c I recognized 2 stylists the last time that I went, and like I said, I had been going to Cortex for years and had always seen the same people.

Don't go there. Unless you like to waste money and time. Go to Urban Body.

I had to tell everyone that I drove three hours from Union, SC to have my hair colored by Tracie Morrison at Cortex Salon. I had a great time and my hair has never looked so good. I will not let anyone touch my hair but her. She's a great stylist. If you feel that no one can do your hair right, I recommend that you visit Cortex Salon and ask for Tracie.

I just went to Cortex for my first time today for highlights and a cut. Corey did my highlights and for the first time in my life, the color was perfect WITHOUT toner! I went to Brandy for the cut (since I heard she was fabulous with naturally curly hair) and she did an amazing job. I don't think my hair ever looked this good! I am very picky about people doing anything to my hair but they did such a great job that I already scheduled my next appt.....in August!

I HIGHLY recommend Cortex!

I went to Traci after trying many different dissapointing salons, and after working in hair salons myself. Not only is Traci a great colorist and cutter, but she listens to her clients and gives them a haircut that is beautiful and will grow out perfectly. Being a poor college student I can't go to the salon every 4-6 weeks as recommended, and she is the stylist for me because I can go 12 weeks between haircuts if I need to and still look great. I highly recommend Cortex and Traci Morrison and I refuse to have anyone else touch my hair.

I just want to give a shout out to Cortex and all of the recent upgrades they've made! Love the new technology! Not only do I look amazing when I leave, but I always have a great time. Everyone always talks to me and it's such a happy, positive environment. Cortex FINALLY has a great team and it couldn't be better! Oh, the best part....Tracie's head/shoulder massage and haircut . She rocks!

Krista is AMAZING!!! Love, love, love her! Not only does she give me the best haircut and color ever, she's super cool and fun.

I've been a client of Cortex for many years now, and I must say that it's never been better! They have recently upgraded their systems and the technology is way cool! I love my text confirmations! I truly look forward to my visits and the happy, relaxed environment. Everyone is always so helpful with booking my appointments around my crazy work schedule and I'm always greeted with nothing but friendly smiles. Rachel's amazing haircuts and bubbly personality is the icing on the cake! I love Cortex!

I'm from Tampa and was visiting friends and in desperate need for highlights and a haircut. One of my friends referred me to Roxanne at Cortex, but she was completely booked for the weekend. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly and was kind enough to place me on a waitlist. They called me within a few hours and said they would work me in. I think they could hear the desperation in my voice! Upon my arrival, I was greeted with nothing but welcoming smiles from the girls at the front desk, received a tour, and given a cup of lovely chai tea. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting and had a nice energy. Roxanne's cutting technique was very precise and not rushed and my highlights have never EVER looked better! I will recommend everyone to Cortex and most certainly Roxanne. I'm such a fan that I won't be going to my stylist in Tampa any longer. In fact, I booked an appointment for my next visit to Atlanta. Now I understand why she was so booked! Thank you to Roxanne for the best cut and color I've ever had and the awesome girls at the front desk!

I am new to Atlanta and was referred to Cortex, but am sorry to say that I will not be giving this snooty salon my business. After being placed on hold for way too long, I was greeted by someone who had no idea how to book an appointment. I was transferred over to their " salon coordinator" who was a little more helpful, but still could not accomidate my somewhat flexible schedule. Decided not to visit due to their seemingly disorganized salon.

I've been going to Cortex for over 15 years (every month) and have never had a bad haircut. Jon is world class! And Marion runs a staff
that is truly professional, courteous and polished! The atmosphere
(unlike most salons) is warm and inviting. They make you feel like family! (How many salons offer you herbal tea while you are waiting for your stylist?) A truly hip and original experience! I can see why they keep getting voted as one of Atlanta's top salons!

I'm new to Atlanta and had no idea where to begin to find a salon, let alone find a stylist who knew what to do with curly hair. After reading tons of reviews online for various places, I decided to take a leap with Cortex and had my hair cut by Brandy yesterday. She did a PHENOMENAL job. Brandy was really sweet and personable, and she instantly understood what I had in mind for my haircut. The cut was perfect, and my curls have life again. It's always so difficult for me to find a good stylist (my poor curls have been mutilated several times by stylists who tried to cut it like straight hair!), and I'll definitely go back to Brandy. The salon atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. They offer herbal tea and coffee while you wait, which was extra nice since it was so chilly outside. I fully recommend Cortex!!!

Pros: Talented stylist, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Brandy wasn't pushy about buying the salon's products, as many stylists can be.

Cons: I found parking on the street... perhaps parking could be tough depending on when your appointment is. I didn't have trouble parking though, & my appointment was in the evening.

I love visiting this salon because of the relaxed atmosphere and great service. Allison is a fantastic stylist and really listens to her clients. She gives great advice for all your hair woes and delivers a cut or color that is sure to please. She is also very friendly and seeing her is more like visiting an old friend than just seeing a stylist. I highly reccomend seeing her and visiting this salon in general.

After years of trying to find a stylist I could trust I made an appointment with Allison at Cortex. You'd have to move me to another state and ban be from an airplane before I would consider going to anyone else. She always gives me a great cut and/or color. Whether I want the same old thing, or a new updated style, she always has the perfect touch. I've never had anyone do better color/highlights. My hair is difficult to take color, but she's mastered it. Allison's best skill is understanding what I'm asking for and turning it into spectacular results. I would recommend her to everyone I know.

I was referred to Cortex by a friend, and I haven't used anyone else since. Krista always cuts and styles my hair and does a fantastic job. She really listens to what you want, cuts it perfectly, styles it, and teaches you how to style it on your own (which is really helpful to me!) The price is very reasonable as well!

I recently visited Cortex in Virginia Highlands. I have to say this place is amazing!! The staff is so friendly and welcoming. It's nice to see smiling faces for a change. The stylists are amazing. A very talented group of people. I've been to many salons in Atlanta, and this is by far the most professional, comfortable environment I have experienced. I have found my new salon!!!!!!!!!

.

I had a haircut there and the next day I noticed it was uneven (one side was longer than the other). When I called the salon to request a fix, they told me my stylist couldn't see me until next Wednesday (7 days later). When I asked if another stylist could fix it, she said they would have to charge me. When I said that I would have to go to another salon, she just said, "OK" and hung up on me. I will never go back and will make sure to tell everyone I know what horrible customer service I had.

My experience at Cortex Highlands was fantastic! I am a curly-headed girl with SEVERAL unpleasant salon experiences under my belt. The atmosphere was mellow (not like walking into a rave like most salons) and I left with the best cut I have ever had. Brandy worked magic with my naturally curly hair - fuzz and unruly kink has been replaced with beautifully defined curls. If you are looking for a stylist and are tired of the salon scene, go to Cortex.. you won't be disappointed!

Brandy gave me the best haircut I have had in years! She knows what to do with naturally curley hair. Stylish cut with wonderful do-it-at-home tips. I send all my friends here!

Pros: stylish cuts, freindly staff

.

Cortex spa has all the services of larger salons but is much less of a rat race and has friendly staff who make you feel right at home. It could be your first visit or 15th and you are equally welcomed. Anna's facial and Kristi's massages are my favorite treats!

I went in just for a color consultation and left with great color and a wonderful new cut. Brandy did a great job. I just love the results! Thanks Brandy! The place is stylish yet unassuming. They carry great products and their pricing is a pleasant surprise. Believe me, I've paid a lot more at other salons for cuts with which I was not nearly as pleased.

Josh is a true professional, an amazing artist, and just a cool guy in general. I highly recommend seeing him - if you can get in! The last time I was there I saw Emily (of the Indigo Girls) ... the salon is mellow (expect to hear Miles Davis playing, for example) and subtle. If Van Michael is too much of a "scene" for you, you'll love this salon with hardwoods, gorgeous crown molding, and no-attitude staff. See you there!

I LIVE IN ETON, GEORGIA, WHICH IS NEAR THE TENNESSEE LINE. MY DAUGHTER HOLLY INTRODUCED ME TO SUZANNE WHO WORKS AT CORTEX WHEN SUZANNE DID MY HAIR FOR HOLLY'S WEDDING. SHE DID SUCH A GOOD JOB THAT I STARTED LETTING HER CUT AND STYLE MY HAIR. IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE DRIVE TO HAVE MY HAIR LOOK THE WAY I LIKE IT

Fortunately, my good friend referred me to Cortex and her stylist, Sherry. My life hasn't been the same since! I presented Sherry with the ultimate "hair challenge." She responded with patience, expertise, and consultation skills that made me feel confident about the whole procedure, as well as how to live with my new style after I left the salon. I look forward to my visits to Cortex and the treatment I receive during my time there. The music, the smells, the lighting: A true sensory delight.

Cons: Challenging parking

Cortex occupies a beautiful space in a secluded strip of shops in the Highlands. Inside, the high ceilings and understated decor offer a feeling of natural calm. From the hair washers (Allison's great) to the stylists (Josh is my favorite), Cortex's services exceed other area salons. There's not a bit of pretention, either, which is a nice change of pace.
