Belle de Jour Salon unabashedly specializes in women’s hair color with a commitment to service and quality, selective staffing, dedication, and a laser focus.
Located inside the Perimeter in Sandy Springs at 5290 Roswell Road in the Mount Paran Walk shopping center, convenient to Buckhead, Brookhaven and Dunwoody, Andrea Davis Goldklang’s salon employs experts who are “committed to providing the best hair color and styling services to the women in the Atlanta area,” the salon’s website says.
Before opening Belle de Jour, owner, color director and master stylist Goldklang learned the science of formulating color and the art of proper application through immersive training and work with Louis Licari in Manhattan and at Van Michael Salon in Buckhead.
Licari is called New York’s King of Color by fab-beauty.com. With multiple locations in Atlanta and Tokyo and a rigorous training program, Van Michael salons enjoy a world-class reputation and were voted the Best of Jewish Atlanta in the hair and beauty salon category.
Belle de Jour finished third in that category in the voting by AJT readers, despite having only one location to build customer loyalty.
(Goldklang was unavailable for an interview for this article because she was preparing for the celebration of her daughter’s becoming a bat mitzvah.)
From the moment they enter the salon, Belle de Jour clients are offered lemon water or LaCroix and are overwhelmed with painstaking customer service.
The salon’s talented, highly trained staffers offer traditional coloring or the latest hair color trends, such as the popular balayage and foil highlights, as well as other styling services. Corrective color, glaze and treatments are also available so that each client leaves the salon feeling confident and refreshed.
After her son’s cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy and remission since 2012, Goldklang and her staff have raised money for CURE Childhood Cancer each September.
In keeping with the motto “Success without giving is not success,” the salon has raised more than $50,000 for the cause.
In addition, the salon donates services to many schools and organizations throughout the community, as shown on the “Giving” link of its website. A Mother’s Day gift at Belle de Jour can therefore have a positive giving ripple effect.
