Joseph & Friends began as a dream of Joseph and his wife Behnaz in the 1980's. In 1989, with the help of his family, he opened the first salon which would be the flagship and home base of operations for years to come.
After twenty years, Joseph & Friends is considered one of the top ten salons in Atlanta, and has grown into multiple locations, providing transformational experiences for clients.
We are a multicultural, educational based company which strives to go above and beyond to provide exceptional service to our guests.
All Joseph and Friends Salons are full-service Aveda concept salons. We offer a variety of services including a full service spa (at the Holcomb Bridge location), to top of the line extensions. Joseph & Friends has been recognized as one of the fastest growing salons by Salon Today for the past eleven years. Our stylists complete a rigorous education program and participate in continuing educational programs every year.
Joseph & Friends wants to exceed our guest's expectations in every aspect of their visit. We want each guest, whether they spend an hour or a day, to feel a million miles away.
We are dedicated to offering convenient alternatives for our guests in terms of booking their appointments. In doing so, we have added a centralized call center and on-line booking.
We exclusively use Aveda products, Petroleum and Paraben Free -only pure plant and flower essences from nature. Aveda is a pioneer in environmental conservation and awareness and ensures products will not only benefit customers through exceptional performance, but will positively impact the people and economies from which the product's ingredients are sourced. Aveda's philosophy coincides with ours and that is what makes us who we are!
