Van Michael Salon Expands with Sixth Atlanta Location

Clients of one of Atlanta's most popular salons are in for a real treat because Van Michael Salon has just announced plans to open a sixth (yes, sixth) Atlanta location, which practically ensures that pretty soon everyone in Atlanta will be a client. When it comes to the beauty industry too much is rarely ever a bad thing, and apparently the masterminds at Van Michael agree because offering clients another location is surely music to their ears. Read on to get all the details and what to expect. Van Michael Salon announced plans for expansion to include a sixth Atlanta-area location in Alpharetta's upcoming The Avalon development, a $600 million mixed-use community scheduled to open in late 2014.

The opening of the sixth location coincides with the 30 th anniversary of the opening of the original Buckhead salon. The Alpharetta salon will join the flagship Buckhead location as well as salons in East Cobb, Sandy Springs, Norcross and Virginia Highlands. Van Michael Salon also has a location in Miami and multiple franchises in Japan. Van Council, Van Michael Salon Founder, states, "The opening of our sixth location could not come at a better time for us as we celebrate 30 fantastic years in Atlanta.

Our growth over the past three decades can be attributed to our loyal client base of more than 100,000 people as well as our tireless educational team, brilliant executive staff and talented team of hair and beauty experts. We thank you all for your support over the years and hope you will join in our excitement as we embark on this new venture in Alpharetta in 2014." Since 1984, Van Michael Salons have grown from just five stylists in a single location to more than 320 employees nationwide. All locations are full-service, Aveda-concept salons with specialized cut, color and make-up departments.

As one of the Aveda's most successful group of salons worldwide, the educational team is tapped year-after-year by the global brand to perform and educate stylists from around the world at all major network events. The salon has earned frequent accolades from fashion and beauty leaders, including "Best Of" honors in VOGUE , Allure and Elle magazines. In addition to industry honors, the salon was thrilled to receive a spot on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's 2013 Top 100 Workplaces list.

North American Properties is developing The Avalon, which will be located in Alpharetta on Old Milton Parkway at Exit 10 of the Ga. 400. The upscale live, work and shop experience will include homes, townhomes and retail space. In addition to retailers and restaurants occupying 500,000 square-feet of retail space, the development will include a Regal Cinemas movie theater and Whole Foods Market. Construction on the development began last month with plans to open to the public in late 2014. For more information, visit www.vanmichael.com .
