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.

    Here to compliment Christine! She made the enrollment process for me AMAZING! She was always available to talk to me, even after school hours. She is so professional yet so much fun- the perfect mix. I enrolled before I ever toured, thanks to her. I knew this school was for me just judging from my experience with her. My list of compliments could continue all day. 10/10 would recommend! ❤️👏🏻

  • Kimberly CroleyKimberly Croley

    UPDATE: They made good on everything and have not had any other issues since then. I would still recommend them to anyone that asks about my hair as I get many, many compliments, especially for color.

    I would have given them 5 stars but today I left with unfinished hair and very upset, especially when your appointment was at 9 am and they could not cut your hair because at 2:15 pm there wasn’t enough time. They close at 3:30 and the student said she could have finished. Not my fault that my hair line around my face was completely missed when coloring and so I had to have the coloring touched up which = more time sitting and processing the color. 3 different instructors, 3 different opinions. I’ve been coming for years and years and today was just a bad experience. Color is great. Not the color I wanted (another story for another time) but it’s pretty and it covered my faded green/blue color. Now I have to go elsewhere and have my hair cut. Very disappointed.

    I went to Keune Academy in Lawrenceville for a color appointment. This was my first visit. Kaye was my stylist and she's awesome! Very professional and friendly. Also the instructors on the floor were great. I will have a few more visits until my transition from dark to blonde is complete, but I will soon schedule my next appointment. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends.

    Asked the stylist for different colored hair and got the same color I already have. Did not cover my roots its literally the same. Students and staff were very nice except for the ladies at the front desk, there were 4 girls up there and none of them welcomed me in or smiled. It was my first time there wouldnt go again.

  • J CJ C

    My first time here and I really enjoyed myself! Can I start with the price?! Thank you Keune for affordable services!! My stylist was Ranay. She was so sweet and moved so diligently but precisely. I was nervous about having a junior do my hair but really wanted to try highlights for the first time. This ended up taking over 6 hours but the end product is STUNNING! The instructors were great about letting Ranay do her thing but checking in often. She knew when she needed the extra eye of the instructor and I appreciate that. She felt at ease and so did I. She did not stop! So much work! When she saw the end result we were both elated and her instructors were so proud! I already have my next appointment with her and she will then be a senior. Thank you all for a great day and making me feel beautiful!

    Ps: My husband said to add a big THANK YOU as well because he loves it!

    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.

  • Rebecca VanDruff HannonRebecca VanDruff Hannon

    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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!!!!

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.
