master stylist + owning partner
AJ discovered early in life his future would be in the hair industry. As a teen, he watched his sister in excitement as she journeyed into the industry. Little did he know that the corporate America route he was going to take would lead him on a path from Chicago to Atlanta in 2006, opening a door of opportunity into the hair industry. A.J.'s recent success comes from a strong foundation of knowledge and experience working along side some of the industrys most accomplished stylists, which has catapulted his successful career. A.J.'s is driven by results and helping clients find a new self confidence. A.J. says," I am driven by the reward I receive when my clients look in the mirror and you can see that look of happiness and the renewed self confidence that everyone deserves to have. I love to hear the stories that clients share about the conversations they had with a friend, a family member,a co worker and even random strangers they pass on the street. Conversations that always start when they are asked ' Who does your hair?' And when they say "AJ" that is the best reward that anyone, in any profession could ever receive. Knowing that the small role I play, makes such a big impact to someone and helps them find a new level of self confidence drives me each day."
Outside of the salon, A.J. is always searching for new ways to be involved within the community. For several years he has been a volunteer stylist and team coordinator for The Paul Mitchell School’s "Day of Beauty.” His work has been noticed on several of Atlanta hottest runways, print publications, television and film.
