The best of the best of the best 12/12/2008

I waited 4 years before getting a real haircut (more than a trim) because of past experiences. Although Forbici's was highly recommended, I was still fearful of cutting off my long hair. Marty and her daughters were so wonderful that now I look forward to my next haircut. Marty spent an hour perfecting my haircut so that not a strand was left uneven. Her daughters were charming hostesses, the conversation was lively and the atmosphere felt as though I was in the living room of a favorite aunt. I got all that and decades of Marty's expertise for less money than I paid at Van Michael's New Talent (apprentice) salon. And the experience was infinitely more enjoyable. Pros: Great haircut, happy experience more

Forbici Fabuloso! 11/19/2007

Marty's expertise, artistry, and genuine friendliness inspire my loyalty to her salon. more

Best Scissor Layer-Cut in Atlanta 8/26/2007

Marty not only owns Forbici, she gives it a warm homey feel. I like a precise haircut that does not rely on thinning scissors to make up for a lack of attention to detail. Absoultely unpretentious, Marty Kennedy's friendly manner belies the fact that she gives the best scissor layer cut I've had in 20 years... I give Forbici Five stars and two thumbs up! (My daughter out and out will not go anyplace other than ""Marty's"" to get her hair done.) Pros: Great haircut, great intergenerational conversation, great service Cons: None! more

Marty listens to you 8/21/2007

Marty really listens when you tell her what you want and usually achieves it. She is great with all types of people and all styles of haircut. I took my mother there when she came to town, and Marty was able to give her a razor cut, which not many people do any more. I am so glad I found her--I don't go home from an appointment and cry anymore. more

Talent Without Pretension 8/16/2007

Marty is exactly what I was searching for - an ""intuitive"" stylist; one who can look at your face and hair type and give you the most flattering cut, while always making sure that it is what you really want. I have never gone to the same salon as long as I have been going to Forbici's (7 years), but now that I've found Marty - what a relief! My salon-hopping days are over. And all this with the bonus of being able to relax in non-pretentious, comfortable surroundings. At Forbici's, you won't find the chrome and glitter of a big name salon - just the talent. Pros: Great cuts and cozy too Cons: Absolutely none more

refreshing salon experience 7/30/2007

What a breath of fresh air Forbici is! In the middle of all the high-priced, high-attitude salons in the snootiest parts of the city of Atlanta, there is Forbici, like a cool breeze in the midst of a heat wave. From the time you walk in, you realize that this family-owned hair salon is different from the rest. I immediately felt welcome as soon as I walked in - somehow they managed to put me right at ease, whereas most of the time in salons I feel like everyone is sizing me up. Mattie Kennedy cut my hair - she apprenticed under her mom (the owner) for four years before taking her own clients. The thing that I appreciated about Mattie is that she actually listened to me (!!!), didn't do what I didn't want her to do, and politely asked before doing anything that she thought I might object to. She gave me several styling tips all throughout the appointment - you can tell she has plenty of experience in the salon industry, even though she considers herself a ""junior"" stylist. Believe me, I've experienced junior stylists who charge more, have more attitude, and have less knowledge about hair than she does. Although she only makes evening appointments, she seems dedicated to making her clients happy. My first experience at Forbici can be summed up by saying it was a warm, homey experience with people who seem to really be invested in their business and in you. Pros: really nice people, family-owned hair salon without the attitude Cons: parking is tight more

Forbici for Hair 7/28/2007

Marty is a great artist! She spends time making sure you're happy with your hair before you walk out the door. I have been to other ""top"" salons in Buckhead and VA Highland and have found Marty to be the best. The atmosphere is very laid-back and friendly. They (she and her daughters who work there) always make you feel welcome and let you know that they appreciate your business. I have been a client of hers for four years. Pros: Great stylist; very friendly service Cons: Can be difficult to reach, but they do call you back! more

Superb personal attention 2/2/2007

My personal experience at Forbici for Hair has been more than excellent. Marty Kennedy is a gifted and careful stylist who treats hair not only for good looks but also for maximum health benefits. It shows and I am grateful to have my hair back with full body and great managability after some years of poor treatments at other salons. The shop is very casual and relaxed and the personal attention is exceptional. The conversation is good too. Pros: Careful attention to condition of hair and it's appearence Cons: May occasionally be hard to reach more

Best Haircut (men's) 12/25/2006

I'm a 46-year-old man, and I've been going to Forbici for four years. I grew tired of the quick in-and-out razor cut kind of places, and I don't want to spend too much time or money on a haircut. That's why Forbici is great. I get a specific cut, the service is amazingly friendly, and the price is right. It's right in downtown Decatur with plenty of free parking. Highly recommended. Pros: Friendly service, hair stylists who care, free parking Cons: Sometimes hard to get an appointment. more

Delightful stylists! 11/22/2006

Show up, and you'll get great service, a fabulous cut, and plenty of good feelings~ more

If you love your hair, you will take it to Forbici! If you don't love your hair, take it to Forbici and you will love it afterwards! 10/21/2006

I have been going to Forbici for at least 6 years and I hope to continue going for many more! Marty is a very detailed hairstylist...many times she'll be perfecting my style even as I'm walking out the door! I appreciate her commitment to her craft. I can tell she cares a great deal about what she does. Her daughter gives the best shampoo I've ever had! more

I recommend Forbici to everyone who will listen 10/19/2006

I have been a customer for many years now and wouldn't even think about going anywhere else. Marty does an amazing job and I trust her completely. She really cares about what her customers want. The atmosphere is causal, comfortable, and super friendly. The location is great, the prices are very reasonable, and I always have fun when I'm there. Marty is excellent at her craft and has taught her daughter Maddie well, who also does a great job. Forbici Forever!!!!! Pros: all good Cons: no bad more

Best Color in Atlanta -- great cuts, too! 9/8/2006

Forbici isn't fancy but that's why I feel so comfortable there. It also doesn't hurt that for as long as I've been going there, I'm routinely being asked about who does my hair. Marty Kennedy is nothing short of amazing. The cuts are always excellent, but what really sold me was Marty's ability with color. People are shocked when I tell them my hair is colored. They can't believe it! I've never, ever, found anyone with as much natural talent for color that looks real. Marty's daughter Mattie does an excellent job, too. She aprenticed under her mom for 4 years before taking her own clients. Pros: Excellent color, cuts, styling more
