The newest salon, opening in November 2017, will be the first Van Michael Men concept

Van Michael Salon announced plans to open an eighth Atlanta-area location at The Battery Atlanta™, the mixed-use development adjacent to SunTrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves. The newest location will be the first ever Van Michael Salon to exclusively offer grooming services. Van Michael Men at The Battery Atlanta is scheduled to open in November 2017. The 33-year-old group of salons has seven additional locations throughout Atlanta in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Virginia-Highlands, Midtown, The Avenue in East Cobb, The Forum in Peachtree Corners and Avalon in Alpharetta. Van Michael Salon also has multiple franchises in Japan.

Van Michael Men will offer the finest in grooming services. Haircuts with expertly trained Van Michael Salon service providers will take place in 30-minute appointment windows, which will include a shampoo, cut and light styling. Cut services will be $40. The salon will also offer shaves and waxing services. Unlike the other seven full-service Van Michael Salons, The Battery Atlanta location will not offer color, makeup or blow dry and finishing services.

“Since 1984, Van Michael Salon has been fortunate to provide hair and beauty services to more than 120,000 Atlantans at our seven locations throughout the metro area. Our full-service salons have been dedicated to providing a world- class experience to our loyal client base of men, women and children for more than 33 years,” states Van Council, co- founder and owner of Van Michael Salon. “Our first Van Michael Men concept at The Battery Atlanta will provide the same first-rate quality of service with shorter appointment times and stylist expertise catered to grooming services.”

The Battery Atlanta is the South’s preeminent lifestyle destination. Anchored by SunTrust Park and conveniently located at the intersection of I-75 and I-285 in the bustling Cumberland area, The Battery Atlanta is a 1.5-million-square-foot mixed-use destination featuring some of Atlanta’s most acclaimed chefs, unique retailers, a live music venue and multiple entertainment destinations. The Battery Atlanta opened with SunTrust Park in late 2016.

“We are very pleased to have found the perfect location to launch our newest salon concept,” continued Council. “In addition to being the home of the Atlanta Braves, The Battery Atlanta offers endless retail, entertainment and culinary options that allow the development to stand out as an attractive destination for men. We are looking forward to offering men’s grooming services, which also stand out above the rest, in our new home at The Battery.”

In more than three decades, the salon has grown from just five stylists, including co-founders Van and Michael Council, to more than 370 full-time employees in Atlanta.
