Before you head out and soak up Atlanta's nightlife scene, you'll want to stop by Adore Hair Studio -- there are two locations in Decatur and Inman Park -- for a haircut, color job or flat iron. The customer service is unmatched and they make appointment setting convenient with their online portal. If you have super curly hair, you'll want to try to book with Malaika Lewis-Pickard, who also gives fantastic precision cuts.

Another fantastic option is Helmet Hairworx Atlanta, which again has several locations througout the city. They often run specials, like a cut and color package for $99. Many of the stylists here were trained at the top-notch Aveda school, like Emma Hasty, who is phenomenal at custom coloring.

Women in Atlanta have perfected the art of looking good and it starts with the tresses. Here’s a quick list of the best salons. 
Vis-A-Vis. Owner and stylist Jeffrey McQuithy’s client roster is a who’s who of Atlanta. But, like any good stylist, he’d never spill the beans on just whose locks we can lust after. Trust us that many powerful women in the city have him saved in their contacts.
Salon Vagabond. The Aviary, the eco-beauty hub that houses Salon Vagabond, is one of the only places in the city for non-toxic hair color. Its edgy vibe and expert stylists make it a favorite for hip in-towners.
Jon David Salons. For more than 15 years Jon David worked at Van Michael Buckhead until branching out with his own space in the Old Fourth Ward. His affordable rates, great cuts, lovely color, and good conversation are why he has such a loyal following.
Drybar. When what you want is a good blowout and nothing more, look no further than Drybar. With cheekily named styles like the Cosmo and the Mai Tai, the national chain thankfully has an outpost in Buckhead.
