Instead of mindlessly suggesting the most popular styles and colors, this staff takes the time to find out what works best for you—practically the opposite of a cookie-cutter salon experience. (Although, they do often have cookies for clients.)If the humid Atlanta weather is doing a number on your 'do, we suggest flocking to Fresche Salon. Probably sooner than later. Because the appointment slots at this little salon, tucked amid the Stone Mountain hustle fill up quickly. And it's no wonder: as the salon celebrates it's 10th anniversary, customers note that it still feels as up-to-the-minute as when it first began back in Grant Park. That's due to owner Joi's passion for staying fresh (get it?) and current in her craft. All Fresche staff are consistently educated about the newest techniques, and Joi herself is an educator in the industry, traveling, teaching and bringing everything she learns back into her salon.
In addition to wielding shears with skill and confidence, the Fresche staff is also known for its nigh-magical colouring abilities. While it's true that they're all intimately familiar with the latest colour trends, they don't just mindlessly recommend what's popular for their clients. No, this is not a cookie cutter salon. (Though, to be clear, they do often offer cookies…and beverages.) Joi and her staff pamper each guest, taking into consideration what will work best with each person's hair and styling habits. Not to mention, the salon feels like a breath of fresh air, with sleek, clean decor and art from local creators. It's the sort of place where clients make connections with their stylists, and we think that's a pretty nifty thing, don't you?
