    This place is awesome! I have been to other beauty schools in the past, and I have to say that this is the most professional academy I have ever been to. Sydney did an awesome job on my hair. The instructors were great. The location is very convenient for me. And I will definitely be going again!

  • Cassie WindsorCassie Windsor

    My experience was great! Scheduling was simple and convenient (I had to move my appointment time last minute). The instructor involvement was consistent and helpful throughout the cut. I required retouching from an uneven haircut when I came in and Mary was very professional and communicative and talked with me during the cut to be sure things looked right. She needed to style my hair with a flat iron to mark details, a service charge that she offered to cancel out with my sign-off to include my hairstyle on social media. It was a smooth and pleasant experience for me after having many poor experiences with other salons. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. My stylist loves the Keune 124 program and was very skilled and informed about style techniques. I will continue to recommend Keune academy and return in the future!

  • Yvonne AngleYvonne Angle

    Anita was awesome! I have fine naturally curly hair and it's a challenge to get an up to date flattering look. She gave me a great style that I haven't had before. Instructors were attentive but gave her enough space to still function independently. Everyone was polite and friendly. I will definitely be back and hope that I can follow Anita, she's a keeper!

  • Susan SotoSusan Soto

    Wonderful experience everyone is very detail oriented and knowledgeable. I will come back again for anything to be done in my hair.

    Great ppl! Friendly environment!

  • Joi BrownJoi Brown

    As soon as I said that I was African American they said my fee would be $8 more and that a "Super Senior " would have to do my hair .... what kinds of load of crap is that !!!! Definitely discriminatory

  • Susie RacheleSusie Rachele

    The students there do an excellent job. You can’t beat the price! I’ve been there twice so far. My hair isn’t easy. It takes them ALL day. The instructors are there to help in case of a mishap or judgment call that didn’t work out. I drive almost an hour to go here

  • Kim Mauney DixonKim Mauney Dixon

    Kaitlyn does a great job! Very professional and love my hair!

  • Alexis MilewskyAlexis Milewsky

    I received a great haircut and color, and the students are so professional! The whole appointment took 5 hours, but my stylist was so attentive and made 5 hours go by fast! Thank you for everything!

  • Sue O'Farrell NicholsSue O'Farrell Nichols

    I've been going here for about six years. Always a great service from the students. Great leaders also. I highly recommend Keune Academy!

  • Whitney DecaminadaWhitney Decaminada

    Sienna did a wonderful job! Very knowledgeable and professional!

  • Neela NeelaNeela Neela

    I've been coming here for about 8 years or so maybe 2-3 haircuts a year and occasional highlights. If there's one thing I value from here it's CONSISTENCY in the training these girls (and guys) receive. Sure it takes a bit longer than a salon, but I actually don't mind that part. I wish I could recommend a specific stylist but they all are amazing and usually graduate before my next visit �

    If you want to attend a school that cares about it's students and makes you feel like family then Keune Academy by 124 is for you. The teachers are great. The administration listens to your concerns and helps you reach your goal of graduating. I loved going to school here. They are the best.

  • Cindy DavisCindy Davis

    Loren Davis did an awesome job on my hair! My first color to cover my greys was a great experience with her.

  • Karen Nixon YoungKaren Nixon Young

    I started going to the school when it was Process "down in the hole" in Snellville. I followed them to Lawrenceville. I probably will not be coming as often because I am following a student, Kathryn Young, who graduates from there on 7/22! My girl!!!! She has been so blessed by incredible instructors (Beth Robinson, Amber) to name a few. They have added waxing, eyebrow tinting, mani/pedi, and makeup application too! Definitely recommend the school, but if you want a stylist come see Katie at Bob Steele!!!!

  • Hannah Grace EllisonHannah Grace Ellison

    Marie did an awesome job!!! I am so in love with my hair!!

  • Maddie DrinkwaterMaddie Drinkwater

    PLEASE DO NOT GO TO GET YOUR HAIR BLEACHED HERE! I came in first day to get my hair lighten up to have a brown shadow root to ashy blonde balayage. I sat there for 4 hours with bleach in my hair and when they washed it out, it was orange/yellow and very coppery and brassy. This was 91 dollars + tip. Then they told me to come in for another bleaching and toner to finish off the hair. This would be another 70 + tip. I ENDED UP WITH BEAUTIFUL ROOTS AND ORANGE/YELLOWY DESTROYED ENDS!!! Will not be going back to have it redone, I'm going to a professional to have them dye it back to brown as bleaching it more will cause my hair to fall out. They absolutely ruined my hair and as a girl whose hair acts as a security blanket for her, this is very stressful and discouraging. I cannot wait to have my hair fixed from this mess.

Student Testimonials

After an extensive search for the best cosmetology school around Atlanta I found the Keune Academy by 124. I’m now an active student and love every minute of it. The school has taught me so many things not only how to do hair but also business aspects of running/working in a salon. I would highly recommend this school to any person wanting to attend hair school.
