REVIEWS OF Model Citizen Salon IN Georgia

Ameya Sawadkar

I had a haircut appointment with Amelia last week and it was a phenomenal experience! I'd not had a haircut for close to a couple of years (since I moved here) and had no idea what I wanted except for a very vague reference image. Amelia knew exactly what it needed and I'm really happy with my new haircut. I know where I'm going for all my haircuts while I'm in Athens! Everyone else was super nice too! :)

Judd Thompson

I won't have my hair cut anywhere else, and I don't use the "we've missed you" coupons they send out every few months because they are just that good. Hands down, they're the best salon in Athens!

Allison Higgins

Looking to get your hair done go to Model Citizen Salon. All the stylist are amazing and knowledgeable. I always leave with great hair!

Baylee Carter

Love the experience I have every time I come here! Excellent staff that will never disappoint you with any choice you make. Had Maddie for the first time today and was very pleased with the results , she's fun and super easy to talk to!

Whitney Watkins

The stylists here are wonderful! Michelle is basically a hair whisperer for fine-haired ladies such as myself. I absolutely adore her vibrant personality and hair knowledge. Stephanie, their in-house aesthetician, is a sweet soul who makes my skin so happy. I am always delighted with my experience at Model Citizen. These folks genuinely care about their craft and their clients. I realize that prices can be intimidating, but it's truly worth it. By the time you waste $40 to $50 on a bad hair cut (more than once), you would have been able to get a great cut from someone who truly knows and loves their craft (and, by extension, you!). So, treat yourself, or, rather, allow these stylists to treat you AND your hair to a great time.

Haley Meeks

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I needed a haircut asap so I called and they fit me in on a Friday afternoon with no appointment. They were so willing to accommodate me and make me feel at home. They are so professional, so fun, and my hair looks AMAZING! They offered to help me with styling it even after I left and helped me pick out what products I needed and didn't try to get me to buy what I truly didn't. The salon has the coolest vibe and so do the people. I'm a student at UGA and they totally cater to you as a person. As long as I'm in Athens I will be going to them for anything I need. To be honest I'd probably drive hours just to come back here I loved my experience so much! You definitely should go to them, you won't regret it!!!

Kristan Robertson

Just had my first appointment here and I really would have appreciated being told to expect my haircut to cost $70 when they called to ask me if I could switch my requested appointment time to someone more experienced they recommended for my "hair type" based on my notes in my appointment request. My hair type is super fine and thin, like not a lot of hair at all, and I went for a very basic short style - nothing complicated. I almost died when I was given my total at the register, but I'm not the type to make a scene and I appreciate quality salons... But really upset about the price not being disclosed as a new client and being switched to a different stylist that charges the max.

John Hansford

Amelia just gave me the best cut I've had in years : )

Lori Branson

I had my first visit today with Lacey and it was a very pleasant experience, fun and comfortable atmosphere, lots of light and windows (I not a fan of salons with low lightning). It was a pleasure meeting Lacey. She took time to ask questions and listen to my hair challenges. I appreciated that she explained why and what she was doing. She gave me a wonderful cut and style and showed me how to maintain it. I have found the salon and stylist for me. Thank you Lacey and Model Citizen. I'll be back soon.

S. Schmidt

Great vibe and great customer service! Amelia is able to give you the hair cut/color you've always wanted, even if you're as inarticulate as I am. I highly recommend this salon, and Amelia, to anyone desiring expertise and a personalized experience.

Carrie Mauldin

Love this place and John Presley is awesome! I hadn’t had a haircut in months and wanted to add in a little more layering after my initial haircut, and he was more than happy to let me come back in to fix it. Everyone was super nice, and I definitely recommend if you want to feel great about your hair! Def ask for him!

Anna Collett

Lacey made my hair and me feel beautiful again and explained her process every step of the way! The salon is unique and cute and I can’t wait to return.

Christy Fricks

I went here because i couldn't get an appointment with my regular stylists. They booked me with, Elyse. She seemed genuinely interested in getting my hair right. The trim she gave me was Okay, but I left with two different colors on my hair. She didn't event come close to matching my roots with the color red that I have on the rest of my hair. Purple red at the tops, orange red at the bottom. Now I have to find someone to correct the color. ugh.

Victoria Yonter

At first I was hesitant because the salon is pricier, but after reading other reviews, I decided to try it. It was so worth it! I had my hair cut by S-Jay and for the first time in my life, I was happy with the amount of weight that was taken off of my hair. My hair is super thick and curly, but she did an excellent job! It was not only the best haircut of my life, but also the quickest. I will definitely get my hair cut here again.

Kristen Puckett

Saw Michelle for my wedding hair and she was the BEST! First, the salon is a beautiful, airy space with plenty of sunlight - can't go wrong with that! Everyone was super nice and personable and then Michelle just did an amazing job! All I had to say was "Old Hollywood" and Michelle went about curling and pinning for three hours until my hair was perfecto! Great price, great experience, highly, highly recommended!

John Godwin

This is the best place to get your hair cut in Athens, hands down. I can't speak for everyone who works there, but if all of the hairstylists do as good of a job as Nathan does then this place can't be beat. 1. I never have a problem scheduling an appointment, and when appointment arrives he is ready to go! 2. He knows what he is doing! I can't say for certain, but I am fairly sure he schedules an hour slot to make sure you are taken care of 3. To top it off (if you didn't start with the shampoo), you finish with shampoo and massage, yes massage. I leave this place and should get pulled over for Driving too relaxed! Lastly, as if you can put a price on this is extremely reasonably priced. That's why it's important to tip! Located in Normal-town next to the Grit with plenty of parking!

Chrissy McGee

Love getting my fashion colors done here. Everyone is always nice and their products last great in my hair and are they are nice and vibrant.

Hudson Wong

The first time I had a haircut in the States.The staff was nice,not much communication.Although the bang was a little short for me, I think it can be better next time.

Marianne Hashmi

Model Citizen salon is THE best salon in Athens. The atmosphere is laid-back and serene and everyone is happy to be there. Lisa is a miracle worker and truly talented at what she does. Go see her!

Helena Kesler

Maddie was wonderful! She was super sweet and made sure to explain every step of the process. I would definitely recommend this salon!

Karson Brooks

I needed a new salon when I got a permanent job in Athens. I had heard awesome things about Model Citizen from people around town, so I made an appointment online. That was super easy and fast. They had great hours to work with my schedule. Everyone was super nice walking in and made me feel welcome. My stylist was John Presley for a cut and color. He was really knowledgeable about what I wanted and walked me through exactly what we were going to do for my color. I also made a pretty big change to my hair, cutting off a lot of length, and he handled it very well! Definitely am coming back and would recommend 100%!

Simona Bovanova

This is a great salon; the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed and everybody is extremely sweet and knowledgeable. I had my hair done by Kasey and she did an amazing job on my bolayage and cut. I have had some pretty bad salon experiences before so I'm beyond glad to have finally found a salon in Athens that is actually above par and will definitely be back

Rebecca Glaze

I absolutely loved this place as soon as I walked through the door! There is such a cool atmosphere here and everyone is so nice. I previously had a rough experience with a former hair dresser at another salon so I met with Kasey for a consultation and she immediately made me feel so comfortable. She and I talked and she came up with a gameplan that was best for me and my hair. She worked around my schedule and even stayed late in order to do my hair. She is phenomenal! I'd recommend her in a heartbeat! If you're looking for a salon in the Athens area I would definitely suggest going here.

mckenzie callahan

I have been going to Model Citizen ever since they opened and my mom has been seeing Elizabeth before she opened this salon. The staff is amazing and can fulfill any of your hair dreams, and they really know their stuff. I've had quite a few hair colors, including purple and rose gold, and they've all turned out beautifully!! I refuse to go anywhere else! I've lived in Athens my whole life and whenever my friends ask me where they can go for a great cut and color, I always recommend this place. Hands down the best hair salon in Athens!

Sharyn Bortle

So I go to my girlfriend's house in the mountains and she says, 'I hate you because all you do is turn your head upside down and blow dry your hair dry and it looks perfect.' ... and I say Model Citizen, Michelle... best trip you will ever take!!

Ivette Nunez

Model Citizen Salon is the perfect mix of high end service, comfortable flow and artistic jive. The employees of Model Citizens Salon are both professional and creative. I would recommend this salon to anyone who is interested in getting the highest quality service in Athens for an affordable price.

Emma Stephens

Nathan at Model Citizen is a fabulously talented stylist! If you want beautiful hair, go see him! Everyone at Model Citizen is friendly and welcoming-- and the decor is gorgeous! Great place!

Kelsey Smith

I’m really grateful for the team at Model Citizen. Jordan is my go to stylist + assists from Nathan and Taylor. I always show up with lofty hair goals, and they make it happen for me! And are sure to explain every step of the process, tell me about the proper care, what should come next, etc. They really provide full scope service and I have never experienced that at any other salon in Athens or elsewhere. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair.

Sam Hopkins

Fun and funky, the salon atmosphere is bright and inviting, with eclectic background music that has tunes for young and experienced alike. I'm a fan of Nathan, but everyone here seems to be having fun making people beautiful. Parking can be challenging some days, but it's a short walk from Bottleworks so eat local and enjoy a constitutional to your appointment!

Haley Simons

My first time at the salon was an excellent experience! Maddie was my stylist and she was super personable and sweet. She had great ideas for my hair color and cut. Very pleased and will definitely be back.

Chris Long

I would definitely recommend Model Citizen to anyone wanting a quality haircut! Atmosphere is superb, everyone is super friendly and you'll leave looking like a badass. My hair butcher- Mary Rose is awesome! If you're in Athens, seriously go get your cut here!

Emma Dykstra

Lacey did an AMAZING job on my vivid color dye. Can't recommend her highly enough!

Cathy Bruce

Hip, chic and sweet are the words I use to describe my favorite hair salon in Athens. My stylist Kasey always gives me the best advice about my hair and cut, and when I come in and want a different color (like red or purple) she goes the extra mile to mix up the best shade for me! I love her and I love Model Citizen! If you want great hair and a great experience while you are getting your hair done, its the best salon in Athens!


I had a hard time finding a stylist when I moved to Georgia from Minnesota, but I finally found the amazing Sallie Dingus! She listens to me, is warm and personable and my hair always looks great when she does her magic. I love the salon!

Laura Callan

I had made a review about a wonderful haircut I had received and it didn’t have to cost my paycheck to get, but tinybangs on instagram friended me and all I can say is that her portfolio is beautiful. I have lymphoma and am going to take the plunge and shave my head and I may just make the trip back to Athens if I physically can to get some lotus flowers and hearts cut in, so no one thinks I’m a boy when they take my breasts and hair. lol. I gotta keep it light hearted. Keep smiling, joking, and laughing. Sorry, I used y’all as an example. I’ve paid hundreds of dollars for horrible hair cuts and not one came from y’all. I only made the analogy Bc y’all are known to be booked out for weeks and to be the end all/ be all of unique, amazing hair ARTISTS in Athens. No harm meant. I’m trying to edit out your name from my review and having problems. Please accept my apologies.

Cali Cc

This is my third time at Model Citizen and again, I am impressed! The stylists are always friendly, down to earth and knowledgeable. Shout out to my stylist Maddie today for rocking my 'do!

Paige Thomas

This is my first time at Model Citizen Salon and it has been great! Such a friendly and welcoming staff! Maddie did something totally different than what I'm used to (foils) and I absolutely love it!! Definitely would recommend!

K Happe

Top flight salon, no question. Best cut and color in Athens (and I've tried nearly all their competitors at one time or another). Michelle is an amazing colorist and knows exactly how to cut my hair no matter what style I'm experimenting with. Highly recommended!

JoshuaA Jeffries

Great cuts. Good folks. Good location.

McKay Higginbotham

So I recently came to model citizen because every other hair salon in Athens could NOT do balayage - and I was recommended Jordan. She is AWESOME at hair and AWESOME as a person. Just awesome. I'm gonna come here forever.

Melissa Scott Kozak

I love everything about Model Citizen // great service, great cuts, great color. The stylists love what they do, and I trust them to take creative liberties with my hair! I definitely recommend them to everyone.

Shelbi Aldrich

This was my first time at Model Citizen and they were able to fit me in pretty last minute, which was soo great. The staff is amazing. Super helpful and willing to get anything I needed. My stylist Maddie was awesome!! She was totally able to see my vision and make it happen. I will definitely come here again, I highly recommend it!

Rose West

I needed a haircut for an update to a grown out pixie and called to schedule something same day. I was told they were full but put on a cancellation waiting list. Later that day, they called and informed me they could fit me in. Yay! Anyway, when I arrived, I met Kate, my stylist. She was attentive, friendly, and did a great job interpreting my vague requests for "shaping" my hair and wanting bangs and volume. I left with a GREAT haircut! I will definitely be back to see her! I've been to several other high end salons in Athens over the years and like those, this one felt hip, but without that exclusionary and "cold" feeling. I recommend it highly.


I’ve tried out 3 salons in Athens and this is by far my favorite. Better pricing than others and I’ve never had a problem getting exactly what I want done. Maddie is awesome I highly recommend her for color!

Sharon Godfrey

I had an appointment with Nathan this morning. Have never had highlights in my hair before. The hair cut was great. Together, my hair looked awesome. They are great for all ages. Very nice people. Recommend them highly.

Nancy O

Another great cut by Amelia today! My hair needed new style and we went a bit shorter than I've had in a while. But it looks great, fuller, with texture. She uses techniques I've never seen. Highly recommend Amelia!

Cheyney Stephens

Have been visiting this salon for more than a year and it is always a wonderful experience. Salley Dingus is, by far, the best and kindest stylist in Athens. The environment is energetic and fun; a perfect representation of the Athens lifestyle! If I could give more than five stars I WOULD!

Leena D

I drove from out of town to go here, hoping for a good experience (based on the reviews and photos), but left disappointed. I specifically called and made an appointment that would include time for a consultation, cut, and color. About two hours into it the girl proceeds to tell me she is double booked and now has to go back and forth between me and another client. On top of that I showed her photos of the things I liked and wanted blonde highlights added with pink as well. She put in highlights, then added a bright pink on my whole head, and when it was rinsed, the color was super bright on my roots only, which obviously looked bad. After all was said and done, I left with bright red hair and NO blonde highlights or pink. Unfortunately, I am sorry that I drove almost two hours to visit this salon. Update: The business did call to inquire about my problem and did invite me back to try to make the situation right.

Kimberly Silvis

I love Model Citizen Salon! I've been lucky enough to be a client since they opened. Such a welcoming atmosphere, great staff and product lines, and their appointment calendar runs like clockwork. Chala is such a great stylist and always listens to exactly what I want done with my hair and we both know, one day, if I decide to do something drastically fun and different, she'll be the one I trust to do it.

peppa pig

Jordan is awesome- plain and simple. She is meticulous, honest, and one of the most real girls I know. Your hair will be safe in her hands! :)

Courtney L

I love this salon! The place is modern and comfy! Lisa is amazing- does the best color and cuts I've ever had. Always willing to suggest something fun and new!

Sarah McKinney

Mary Rose rocks! Awesome atmosphere, easy to get to.

faheed choudhry

So I was having a hair crisis AND in the middle of my fantasy football draft. I came to Model Citizen and got treated by Mary Rose. She was super accommodating of me having to use my phone to draft whilst getting my cut. She's very talented and was able to get my temp fade down. Mary Rose is the real deal, gifted, personable, and it didn't hurt that she's very easy on the eyes. Ha. The salon staff was very friendly and cool. The building looks really dope on the inside. Overall just good vibes and I will definitely be hitting them up when I need to get a fresh cut again.

Iza Knief

I was completely uncertain of what I wanted, and very vaguely described it to the stylist. She did a great job and cut my hair exactly like I imagined it. Thank you Sally. They also kept my 3 year old entertained while I was getting a haircut, and for me that's priceless. Great atmosphere, very clean, I highly recommend it.

Natalie Howard

I love this place!! My stylist Kasey is awesome!!!! She never disappoints! No matter what style or cut I'm going for she nails it every time!! She's very attentive and knowledgeable. And makes you feel right at home!! And you leave looking like a million bucks! I always get so many compliments on my hair!!

Caity Walker

I love Model Citizen Salon! I've been going to see Lisa K. for a couple of years, and I don't trust anyone else with my hair. Last time I saw her I got some peacock highlights in my hair and they loll amazing. I've gotten so many complements. The staff is are all wonderful, professional, and super friendly. Always offering water or coffee/tea when you arrive. Atmosphere is very different cool, modern and eclectic. If there is one "criticism" (for lack of a better term) is that it is sometimes hard to find a parking spot.

Anna Simmons

Where do I begin! From start to finish it was such a great experience. I went to Maddie for some purple highlights for the summer, and the result surpassed all my expectations!! The color is rich and gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. Maddie did such a fantastic job. She paid such careful attention to making sure I left with nothing less than what I wanted, and was so sweet and wonderful. Love her and Model Citizen!!!

Alison Dillon

Best hair salon in Athens! I've been consistently pleased with their professional and knowledgable employees. Model Citizen can meet the needs of a spectrum of clients through their experienced and creative stylists. Michelle is awesome and I'm always blown away with my hair! Love the vibe and style of the salon.

Rebecca Mountain

Cool, chic, and comfortable, this place is perfect. Mary Rose is the best!

Mary Hitchings

Maddie has always taken such good care of me. I'd never colored my hair before, but so many people recommended Maddie, I felt confident letting her lighten up my mousey brown. Im always nervous about people cutting my hair when they don't have nutso curly hair themselves, but I love my haircuts from Maddie. I've never had a better one, honestly. I'd also wanted to go purple for years just to get it out of my system, but I liked what she did with it so much I came back for more vivids! She's also so kind and fun to talk to! I'm so glad to be a member of her fanclub!

Abigail Henderson

John Presley does an absolutely amazing job with highlights!

Elle Jay

I've had my hair done twice there now most recently with Kacey and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about it. From when you walk in to the end the service is amazing. I went a little outside of the box with my hair color today and kacey did an incredible job. It also made me feel great when all of the other stylists were asking what she did. I love that the salon has the little head

Rebekah Becker

I love Salley!!! She is amazing and I won't let anyone else touch my hair!

Heather Leffert

The staff here is very friendly, accommodating and professional. The atmosphere is great! Lisa is my stylist and she is very talented and just a fantastic person. I highly recommend this salon!!!

Audrey Glasgow

Lacey did a fantastic job, made changes I requested and used the reference photo I brought in. I've got difficult curly/frizzy hair and she always does great for me. She is greet with curly hair texture and cutting it to work with the circles!

Kimberly Rein

I love Michelle and Model Citizen! Michelle has been cutting, styling, coloring my hair for almost ten years! I would follow her to the ends of the earth! Her talent is beyond magical! Besides her insane talent, she will make your time in her chair a blast. Model Citizen is the place to go to get exactly what you're looking for, to feel pampered, and to feel right at home all at the same time.

Emilee Harden

Hands down the best salon I have EVER been to! The customer service is above and beyond, and every person on staff is friendly, considerate, and knowledgeable. I have tried several salons in Athens, and Model Citizen and all of its top tier stylists have always made me feel comfortable and welcome, and I am consistently blown away by the excellent service! Your stylist will go above and beyond for you to make you love your hair and will not stop until you are confident and happy with how it looks.

Kayla Zilch

You can go pretty much anywhere and get a hair cut or colour - but if you want an experience, go to Model Citizen. My balayage appointment yesterday was the second time I've been to this Salon, and I left so happy I'd chosen to invest in Jordan's talent. She was honest and up front about what my hair could safely do in one lightening session, and then outperformed both of our expectations with a gorgeous honey coloured balayage. I have my follow-up appointment already scheduled, but love this colour so much I just might keep it for longer!

Melissa McKim

Love this place! Great atmosphere & decor. Yes. That's a total plus for me! Cheerful staff. Competitive prices. I see Michelle L for my hair. She's done cuts, colors, highlights, etc for me and is a major talent. 100% recommended.

Mylissa Slane

I love love love Model Citizen Salon!!!! The staff are unbelievably friendly and professional and they know what they are doing! I see Maddie Mansell for coloring my hair and she does an amazing job every time. She goes out of her way to help her clients by including free shaping and touch ups! She is just all around awesome and really cares about her clients. You can tell how much she enjoys her work by how excited she gets when trying a new color or style. Every person I have encountered at Model Citizen is warm and welcoming and easy to talk to. I cannot say enough good things about it!

Emilee Stapleton

I went in today for the first time to get my hair cut with Michelle, and the whole experience was great! Model Citizen is in a great location, and the salon itself has a really cool vibe. Michelle was great and walked me through every step of the process! Would definitely recommend.

Lily Masa

Today I made a last minute appointment, and was placed with Maddie. She was absolutely amazing. She took my train wreck of a hair and worked with me to work towards my goals. She talked me through the process and really understood the direction I was wanting to go. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, and will definitely be back! I would highly recommended Maddie!!

Julia McCarthy

I'm not normally one to review places, but I just had to leave one after my experience here! I went in the other day and I was a little nervous about getting 8 inches cut at first but Lisa was amazing! When I told her the style I wanted she really listened, asking me about my styling habits and general experience with shorter hair. She explained to me what she was doing and why she was doing it throughout the whole process, making sure I was comfortable with it, and gave me a ton of styling tips so I could maintain the look she was giving me. Everyone there was so welcoming and accommodating, and the whole salon looks amazing, with a unique and creative style you can only get in Athens! I can honestly say this was the best salon experience I've ever had and I would seriously recommend checking it out!

Heather Lacey Rae

Best salon in athens! Talented, experienced stylists! If you are new to the area or just looking for a new salon, dont be afraid to schedule a consultation with a stylist and talk over the best options for you! If you are a stylist looking for a job....this place rocks!

Corrine Potts

Love this place. The stylists are fantastic and the products they sell are wonderful.

Jessica Scott

Lacey was amazing! I went in with a mess of faded red and copper hair, and I just wanted to go back to my normal hair color. She did a great job blending together all the different shades I had so I could go back to a chocolate brunette color. Definitely worth it, plus the environment of the salon is very relaxing and fun!


I have been searching high & low for a stylist who knows her profession! I must say I have found Lacey@ Model Citizen!!!! Lacey knows hair and has an awesome personality that shows through her work. Lacey & I discussed how I arrived at her doorstep

Tara Childers

Absolutely love my new hair cut!!! Salley is awesome! Everyone was very nice to meet and makes you feel comfortable

Sonic Titan

So my wife went here to get a haircut for an interview. They took her as a walk in last min and still gave her an amazing hair cut. Great place and nice people can't beat it.

Matt Collins

Great experience with great people. John-Presley in particular is a great stylist and an absolute saint. He helped me with a big change to my hair right before my wedding, and didn't judge me (at least not that I could tell) for bringing him a mess to fix. Best salon experience in Athens by far.

Jenny Wares

Cannot say enough good things about Model Citizen. Love my stylist. Professional atmosphere, but still very fun - light and open from lots of windows too. Sell great products, but never pushy. They send text reminders also. Love Model Citizen!

Harper Kennedy

Everyone here is insanely talented, but Jordan is the best! There is nothing she can’t do, whether I bring in a picture or fumble through a vague idea of what I want. The salon itself has a great ambiance, and their whole staff really make every visit a great experience from start to finish. Highly recommend!

Sarah Roberts

I took my daughter here and had a wonderful experience! Everyone was very kind. We originally booked JP for a pixie cut but he recommended Amelia who is very talented in pixie cuts. My daughter can’t stop talking about how happy she is with the haircut and the way they treated her. We will definitely recommend this place and will most definitely come back!

Lydia Nichols

Maddie Mansell does the best color in town, hands down. Super cool vibe in the salon, too! Anyone who wants to do cool funky color and have it remain healthy should definitely check her out!

Heather Eve

I have always had a fantastic experience at Model Citizen! Everyone there is so incredibly friendly and helpful. I swear that Michelle Laird (my favorite hair stylist) has hair magic!!! I always leave feeling beautiful and know that I can trust her completely to do what will look best!

Katie Sullivan

I've just had the most ridiculous experience. I'm so done with this salon. They have cancelled on me several times INCLUDING the appointment I had set for my WEDDING hair with almost no notice. They offered another stylist to do my hair for my wedding but wouldn't book me a consultation with the different stylist so I could see if she was any good. Then today I forgot about my appointment and called 40 minutes after it was set to reschedule and they wanted me to put deposit for my next visit! Now, I would understand if I was a habitual no-show but that's not the case. I no-showed ONE other time almost a year ago. They have cancelled on me 3 times and changed my stylist once without asking if it was ok with me. What a hypocritical policy. You have lost my business due to this. If you want stability, go to another salon.

Bryan Center

THE best salon in Athens. Hell, maybe the world!! Everyone is super nice and helpful. I will only let Michelle Laird touch my locks. I once asked about cutting all my hair off and she said "No! The world needs hair like yours in it!" As long as they are around, I won't let another pair of scissors near my hair.

Noel Reece Bloedt

Amazing service as usual, paired with optimal cuts personalized by stylists. Shout out to Breanna Koonce, to whom I am a client.

Angela Moss-Hill

Katie did a fantastic job today! This place is always wonderful. I love the atmosphere.

Kaitlin Turner

I have been here 2 times and both times they have been very impressive! my most recent time with Maddie was very good, she was very nice and an amazing hair stylist, also the salons decor is very vintage! I love it here!

Candace Smith

Salley does my hair. She always does a wonderful job. Everyone there is pretty nice too.

Jodi Copeland

This was my first time getting my hair styled here. Absolutely loved it. Sally and all the other staff are very friendly and caring. They listened to my concerns about my hair and what I was looking for. Thank you Sally!

Bailey Pepper

Lisa is amazing. I was dealing with a fiasco of a dye job from another salon and she managed to not only fix it, but to also give me something that looked great. Cool salon with a wonderful vibe.

Katherine Boll

I wanted to go to a lighter blonde. Two appointments, $240, and my hair hardly looks different than before. I was disappointed with the results, and the price of my second appointment was very questionable- she did it very quickly & hardly used any dye. Overall I was disappointed, spent a lot of money and didn’t even get close to what I wanted.

Maris Castang

Model Citizen is my go-to salon!! I have always come out a happy customer whether it be a cut or color. Lisa does my hair and I highly recommend getting an appointment with her! You'll fall in love with the amazing decor and friendly faces!

Tony Satchurin

Katie was awesome and showed me what products would work for my hair. My new go too spot

Kim Jimenez

I can't even begin to explain how amazing my experience at Model Citizen was. I initially asked for a consultation so Kasey gave me some great pointers when I explained how I wanted my subtle balayge/sombre. I've had some horrible experiences before so I was a little nervous. But Kasey took great care of me. She explained each step along the way and was insanely patient with my very long hair. When she got done I couldn't believe it. She absolutely nailed the color & style. It was exactly what I wanted! Now I get why this salon has such a great rep. I'll never go anywhere else. My hair needed Kasey all along. Thanks guys!!

Blythe Snead

Go see Lacey!!! She's here now, from Pageboy. She does phenomenal work, and she's great company. I get compliments every day on my hair. I have Pulp Riot vivids on my hair and the integrity of my hair has not been compromised. She's the only person in Georgia who will touch my hair again!

Maggy Menjivar

Loved the location very cute & relaxed atmosphere. JP was awesome he cut my daughter's hair and my daugther and I loved it!! JP went above and beyond gave us tips and pointers on how to style her hair!

I had Maddie do an updo for my wedding, and she was INCREDIBLE! She listened to what I wanted and went above and beyond; best of all, she was quick and the style held from 9am until 11pm! Plus, she was great to chat with throughout the whole process and made me feel relaxed the morning of my wedding. Would highly recommend!

I have been seeing Jordan at Model Citizen for the last few cuts and colors. She is so fabulous! The whole team there makes you feel really welcomed from start to finish. You can find a lot of photos of previous work from a lot of the stylists on Instagram if you’re someone who likes to see what they’ve done in the past. Love it here! And the prices are reasonable for the work you get done!

Julie Perkins

My experience at Model Citizen has always been top notch! Everyone is super courteous and professional. Nathan is a gifted stylist. He listens to what I want and then puts a plan into action, that not only makes me feel gorgeous, but is also something I can realistically maintain at home!

Amanda Sutton

Kasey is amazing! She did a tough corrective color on a faded vibrant red that was growing out into a copper orange. We weren't sure how it would turn out (I wanted a bright pink) but her intuition and talent was awesome and I ended up with exactly what I hoped for. Super friendly, but will also be honest about what might not work on you. I highly recommend her.

Life changing haircut by Amelia!

I visit Stephanie about every five weeks, and she is fabulous! Not only is she fun to work with, but she is thorough, professional, and always focused on serving her customers' needs. I love that she talks to me about the products she's using and is always looking for new items that might be even better for her clients. I highly recommend a visit if you have never worked with Stephanie before. You won't be disappointed!

Carol Chambers

Ashley Franklin

I have gone to model citizen for about 2 years now. Every time I am immediately greeted at the door when I walk in. I have had several wonderful experiences with a stylist, Jordan. She is truly a talented artist. I would definitely recommend Model Citizen to anyone who is looking for an out of this world shampoo and an awesome cut!!!

Morgan Lynn

I've lived in Athens for 3 years now and haven't gone to a new stylist since I loved my stylist in snellville so much. I Loved my experience at model citizen. I walked in and they were so friendly to all their staff & customers. Lucy was able to pin me in and we ended up cutting off all my hair!! I have never left the salon happier than I did when Lucy finished my hair!! Thank you so much model citizen for being my new salon! Lucy was so warm and welcoming! I'll be coming back for sure.

Maddie did a wonderful job giving me my dream hair! Highly recommend her for your beauty needs!!

Kat Dunckel

Love all the stylist there, but it's specially Sally and Kasey! They are just fabulous! Everyone learns who you are and greets you by name, it's a great place to go for just a quick cut or her something fabulous and off-the-beaten-path! You definitely won't be disappointed

Eli R.

FANTASTIC! Elizabeth is the best. We had a wedding recently, and she helped with my mother - who has not had her hair done properly in years - to look fantastic! Goodbye Grey - hello blonde! Seriously, my mom had a great time with Elizabeth, she felt completely comfortable - and she looked amazing for the wedding! Mom will be showing off pictures of her hair for years - she looked that good. I highly recommend Elizabeth and the team @ Model Citizen.

Michelle has been doing my hair for years and I love what she does with it. I trust her style and taste so much that I finally got the purple streaks I've always wanted! She made them look professional and edgy, so much so that what was going to be a brief style choice is sticking around. I've never gotten as many compliments or been happier to try something new!

Melissa Yonce-Hayes

Just had my first experience here & saw Amelia. I had an idea of what I wanted in a haircut - something stylish but super low maintenance. Amelia nailed it & I walked away with the best haircut I've ever had. Already booked my next appointment. To top it off, she's very kind & laid back & I enjoyed getting to know her a bit.

Ashley Newman

Hands down one of the best salons I’ve been too! The entire staff was warm and welcoming

Sierra Matthews

I went to Maddie today to get some pink highlights. She is amazing and the salon has a great relaxing vibe! I definitely recommend Maddie to anyone looking for a fun new look!

Morgan Henry

Wish I could actually afford to visit this place...

Christopher Childs

Far and away the most professional and friendly salon in town. Great environment with incredibly talented people! Michelle cuts my hair and is a true delight. This place and the people there make my heart happy.
