Who We Are

Keune Academy by 124 was born of the vision of two families. Keune is a European cosmetics brand with a United States headquarters here in Georgia. Salon 124 is a local chain of salons that specializes in luxury hair services. Both of these businesses are family-owned, and have a vision of bringing high quality education to aspiring beauty professionals. Keune and Salon 124 have partnered together to create Keune Academy by 124, a cosmetology school designed to train the next generation of trend setters, innovators, and superstars in the beauty industry.

Our mission: To prepare students through quality hair design and cosmetology education with the knowledge, skills, and professionalism needed to enter their field in the career of arts and sciences and be successful.

What We Do

Keune Academy by 124 combines quality Keune products with Salon 124 expertise to provide cosmetology and hair design education. The entire Keune product line is available for our students to use and practice with during their education. Salon 124 brings business and industry expertise to help our students excel at both the state licensing exam and as professional cosmetologists. We have six core values that we strive to encompass with both staff and students:

These core values serve as a guiding light to help staff and students alike become better versions of themselves.

Student Testimonials

This is hands down the best school in Georgia. I have never in my life gone to a school where every single person there from the director of admissions, to the staff, to the instructors, to the students are literally so kind it makes you want to cry. You can tell by the curriculum, the way the school is kept, the energy in the building, and literally everything about this establishment, that these people bend over backwards every single day to make your experience that much more worth while.

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."

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.
