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:
Integrity
Excellence
Teamwork
Family
Artistry
Fulfillment

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

    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!

  • Sharita HamerSharita Hamer

    This school does not educate their students or instructors on textured/black hair! I had to come back several times due to incorrect hair dye color! There's only one instructor, who's Puerto Rican who is passionate and not afraid to style black hair. The ladies in the front including Rachel are rude as well. My hair fell completely out! Yes you already know what my next step is!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Tonya MazarkyTonya Mazarky

    I do recommend them, I had my hair done there last week. I've been trying to contact them since last Thursday and all I'm getting is music.

    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 �

  • Lauren De La CruzLauren De La Cruz

    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.

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.
