Fabulous experience and great hair cut. Joshua was so patient, skilled and a great listener. I felt like I saw my therapist but felt great after.

From the service to the color I received, bob salon is horrible! There are too many things to mention in this little review. I will NOT be going back.

I'm a relatively new client to bob(SALON). I LOVE my stylist, however, I'm not too fond of their staff. They're not always friendly when I have to reschedule my appointment, when my schedule doesn't permit me to come in at my scheduled appointment time. I always try and give a notice if I can't come in, I've never just NOT shown up. I can HEAR them roll their eyes on the phone when I call to reschedule. What's up with that?? Do they think I want nappy hair? I can't help it when unexpected things get in the way... I guess they've forgotten that the customer is always right. Who knows?

I had high hopes for my first appointment, but bob didn't quite live up to expectations. The warehouse setting is really cool, they offer you a drink, and the operation appeared to be efficient and organized. My main complaint is that evidently the standard procedure is to double book the stylists (in other words, my stylist was splitting time between myself and another customer. While an assistant shampooed or blowdried me, my stylist cut someone else, and vice versa). The overall effect was rather rushed. My haircut came out OK (I needed a small correction later), but I felt like I was being pushed through so they stayed on schedule. I didn't feel like the price of my haircut was unreasonable, but I did feel like I should be the center of attention for the amount I paid. I hope bob reconsiders the double-booking policy. Not sure if I would go back...

Cons: they double book you! :(

I have been getting my hair cut at Bob for the past couple of years, and I have always enjoyed the overall experience. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the atmospehere is laid-back. Customers are always greeted with the offer of a beverage, and my stylist (Brooke) gives the best hair cuts I have ever had. I'm actually quite surprised that anyone would have a negative experience at Bob.

This salon has awful customer service. I went in just to take a look around and was ignored by everyone in the salon. There were a lot of people at the front and not a single one said hello to me. I showed myself around and again noone in the entire place even smiled. So I left. I have no idea how they are with hair, but if their customer service level is any indication I wouldn't get my hair cut here.

it saddens me to see some bad reviews here. i've been going to bob for about a year and a half now, have seen several different stylists, and i've always been more than happy with my cuts and color. the building is really cute and colorful and the staff is very friendly and very accomodating. i never felt like they were just trying to get me in and out; getting my hair done at bob is always a great experience. i've paid a lot more to get my hair done in new york and atlanta, but nothing thusfar has compared to the quality of work and great staff at bob. please don't let those bad reviews deter you from going - everyone i have ever talked to who goes there absolutely loves their hair and the salon. i've sent all my friends there and no one has ever had a bad experience. i love bob and i think you will, too.

A couple of my friends started going to Bob when they opened so I gave them a try. I know there is always different levels of talent in a salon so when I was unhappy with my first cut I simply asked for a different person my next trip. Same result. My friends encouraged me that I needed to see Nicole and that she was basically the only one in there that had ever really been trained to cut hair. I reluctantly made an appt with Nicole for my next cut. I got the feeling while she was cutting my hair that she would rather be waiting tables than making me feel welcome as her client. I guess I would have to say it was the best of three cuts I got at Bob but I would fall far from saying it was great...barely good for that matter. If Nicole is the "best" of the class, I have seen enough.

I followed a stylist to Bob when they opened. I had been seeing Donna for two years and had followed her from a previous salon before that. I think she made a poor decision to move to this place. It is basically a 100 year old warehouse. I guess some people might think that is cool or chic but I think a salon should be upscale and clean. If I am going to pay $50 or more for a haircut I want to feel pampered. I got the vibe she wasn't totally happy with the staff and management so I am hoping she will leave and go somewhere new. I saw a couple of other people mention the parking situation and let me assure you its horrid. That's another reason I stopped going. I wish Donna would see the error in her move and go somewhere else. ANYWHERE ELSE! so I can start seeing her again.

I drove from Alpharetta to Athens, on the recommendation of my best friend, to have Lyric cut my hair. It's curly and has a mind of it's own, but somehow Lyric was able to do what many have failed at over years of trying to deal with unruly curls. It's a 70 min. drive from my home to bob(Salon), so I don't always make the trip when it's time for a cut/color. However, whenever I have made the effort, it's been well worth the extra time and trouble. Lyric is a miracle worker, but each of the hairdressers are excellent at what they do. Friendly staff, good products available, great ambiance in a salon that's not just an old house or a storefront in a shopping center. The place itself is part of the whole bob(Salon) experience. I had a great time and my hair never looked better. Thanks Lyric and Alissa.

I, for one, really like BOB Salon. I've always had nothing but great service here. Give all the salons in the area a try and I'm sure you'll agree with me. I think Nicole is a fantastic colorist and I'm more than happy with my service.

6/10/07: I do not want to say anything bad here... I really LOVE bobSalon and, for a year, my hair was fabulous.... However, I could not leave my review up from last time(written on 11/14/07). Simply put, I do not recommend bob at this time for hair extensions... I am shocked at the service I received. However, bob is very brave and the first in Athens to dive into the art of hair extensions. I hope that they continue to learn and improve their system to provide a consistent service for the Athens area. I wish them all the best.
I want to say thank you to everyone who has been so kind to me.
**** I do think bob IS THE BEST for corrective color, highlites, etc... I think every stylist there is very talented. The receptionist, owner, and staff are very professional. The GHD products, brushes and straightener/styling tools I have purchased there are the top of the line, and the staff is highly educated with their products. I do not give an overall bad rating to the salon because it is only one individual who put my extensions in. The first time they were fine, the second.... not ok. Unless you have $3500 to spend for inconsistent results, I do not recommend this service.
Highlights/ Haircut--- Great Value with consistent, fabulous results!!!!!!

Wow, what a relief.I thought I was walking into a chic salon, but I had been told that it was the best haircut in town, and, while, the salon is very beautiful, it is not at all a chic salon....I felt as comfortable there as if I had walked in to a barbershop with a barber pole.

I usually don't write, nor even look at this kind of stuff, but I did see alot of negatives in the past few days about Bob(salon) on this site. Some wedding deal.

But, I got a really good haircut from Hilary and am definitely going back.

I liked this place. Good haircut, good vibes.

I just moved to Athens from Palm Beach, Florida. I was sure that I would have to fly back to Palm Beach to get a decent haircut. A neighbor told me about bob(Salon) and I called the salon. A very nice, very friendly girl named, Alissa, recommended that I make an appointment with Lyric because I have short, curly hair.

I was beyond surprised when I walked in to this gorgeous salon in Athens, GA....much better than any salon that I went to in Palm Beach.

Lyric gave me the very best haircut I have ever had and the color is beyond believable. My husband actually noticed my haircut and color. (The first time in 33 years of marriage).

Everyone at bob(Salon) was so friendly and accomodating. My hair looks even better as it grows out...I don't think I can ever move out of Athens and leave my new most favorite salon.

And, the GHD products that I bought are the best products that I have ever used.

Thanks Lyric and thanks Bob(Salon)....I now don't even miss the gorgeous weather in Palm Beach because I have found the best hairdresser and the best salon EVER!!!

I was also in the wedding party that was mistreated at this place. Shame on you guys for being such rude people. We were shunned form the moment we walked in. To make matters worse they charged us more than I pay in Atlanta for the same service and did an extremely poor job. I ended up having to redo my own hair afterwards. I will never go back here.

I went in this place as part of a group of five people for my friends wedding. Big mistake. We couldn't believe how rudely we were treated. One of the girls actually had to end up essentially doing her hair herself because the stylist she was put with couldn't work a curling iron. We should have charged them but instead they charged us and boy did they ever. I felt bad from friend who paid the bill because she knew they had done a horrible job. Thanks alot BOB for starting her special day off on such a sour note. I hope people heed this warning.

Following the reviews on here.... I went ahead and booked an appointment for a haircut with color here. Now I am sitting at home wondering what if anything can be done to fix my hair. Do your hair a favor and stay FAR away from this establishment. Parking is horrible..prices are WAY to high..and the finished product leaves MUCH to be desired.

I went in today not expecting much, however I came out really really loving my new hair style. I went and saw Lyric, and let her pick a style for me. She was very precise in every single cut. The cut is absolutely wonderful, and I can't wait to see it grow out. Very very good place to get your hair styled, better than the places ive been to in mid-town and downtown Atlanta. The price is excellent compared to the more expensive salons, and the quality and the style of the cut is better. The salon is very unique, it has a very nice design. It was very comfortable, and I'm definately going to see her when I get tired of my new style.

Bob Salon is a great salon. I always get a wonderful haircut here and really enjoy the employees. I can see why the salon is always so busy--the atmosphere is fun and inviting and the salon decor is interesting (not to forget about my great haircut.) If you go get your hair cut here you won't be disappointed.

BOB's is FANTASTIC! Why would you want to go anywhere else? They have the best stylists in Athens. I would trust any one of them to do my hair. Save yourself some time and heartache and don't even bother going anywhere else in town. I've been to them all and this place is the best of the best!

Bob is hands-down the hottest spot to get your hair cut in Athens. Although it's frequently very busy and hard to get an appointment at times, the little touches make all the difference--they sometimes have cookies or cheese and crackers in the waiting room and everytime I've been there, they've had really good wine. In addition to this, they have great stylists and a really fun atmosphere. Everyone here enjoys what they do and it shows. Even though I see a senior stylist, they now have junior stylists--one of which my friend went to and loved her cut--at a discounted rate.

I had the absolute best experience at Bob Salon! The staff, other clients, and general atmosphere were so warm and fun. I had a beer and talked for a long time with the lady getting her hair done next to me--who has been seeing one of the stylists for years and has followed her stylist to other salons. She said her favorite place is Bob. I just loved everything about my experience. I will definitely return and recommend this salon. And my hair looks awesome.

I was very happy with my first visit to Bob Salon. After I read that they won the Athens Banner Herald's choice awards, I thought I should try them out. I was definitely not dissapointed--the decor was fun, quirky and impressive and the staff was very friendly. They were extremely busy when I was there for my 2 pm appointment, however, I never felt rushed and instead felt pampered with my glass of wine and my view of the trees. My cut and color by Stacy was amazing. It's probably the best I've had in years. I'll definitely return to Bob.

I love this place. It's so hip and urban and yet friendly. I've been there 4 times and have a new person cut my hair each time. Every haircut I received was great. I'd definitely recommend this salon. They also do the thermal reconditioning--which you can only get done in big cities-- and have these great products from the UK called ghd. I bought a flat iron that also curls my hair and works wonderfully.

This place is amazing! It's in this old,cool loft-style warehouse and has the best vibe. I was offered complimentary wine or beer for my late afternoon/early evening appointment (but I hear you can still have the wine in the mornings if you prefer.) My wine came from one of the top wine shops in the area and I relaxed on the back deck while I waited for my stylist. And she was definitely worth the wait. Lyric was amazing with my curly, thin hair. She also gave me the best highlights I've had in years. I've been througout Atlanta looking for a stylist and I finally found one in my home town! I'm thrilled and will definitely be back. I'm assuming a lot of people feel this way as the place was packed when I was there.

I live in Atlanta and frequent the best salons. I came to Athens to visit my daughter and she suggested we get hair cuts. I immediately thought that this experience, though quality time with my daughter, would be awful. What could Athens possibly have that Atlanta does not? I was surprised. Bob has a funky, urban, and yet southern/ comfortable feel. The stylists at bob seem very ecclectic--from tattoos to preppy. I saw the stylist with the tattoos and was a bit nervous she might give me a crazy haircut. But I was pleasantly surprised that she listened to exactly what I wanted. It's been a few weeks since my cut and it's growing out into an even better style than the original. I would definitely go back to Bob. I might even make a trip to Athens specifically to get my hair cut (and not call my daughter! )

I live in Atlanta and frequent the best salons. I came to Athens to visit my daughter and she suggested we get hair cuts. I immediately thought that this experience, though quality time with my daughter, would be awful. What could Athens possibly have that Atlanta does not? I was surprised.

I've been to this salon a few times in the past year or so and have had a new stylist each time. My hair has never looked better! These people are so talented and I've been happy with each of my cuts. I also love their product line they said they got from London. This is really the best place in Athens (and maybe even Atlanta.)

I didn't expect to find such a great hair place in Athens, GA, as I have just moved to the area from Atlanta. Bob is a very professional place with a great vibe. I'm glad I won't have to drive back to Atlanta to get my hair done. I left with a wonderful cut and color and am entirely happy with my overall experience at the salon.

This place is awesome! Love the atmosphere--I relaxed on the back patio with a glass of wine while I waited for my stylist--love the music, love the people. Athens has needed a cute, hip little hair joint like this for awhile. And I got the best haircut I've had in years. Thanks BOB!

Thank you, John Robert! I've finally found the stylist of my dreams! He listens, understands the exact style I'm looking for and then cuts it flawlessly. What a great find in Athens. I've been driving to Atlanta for the past 10 years, but now I can say I'm an avid BOB fan.

This salon is in the most beautiful, old, loft-style building. I had my hair highlited with Lyric and she listened to exactly what I wanted. I'm now a ravishing red head. To top it off, I have very thick, curly hair and she gave me a cut that works wonders. My friend who came with me saw Nicole and loved her hair also. We'll both definitely be back.
