In an effort to further his education, Joseph Golshani came to America over thirty years ago with the intent of returning to Iran, but he soon realized the tremendous opportunities that were offered him in this country. He remained in America and made a name for himself.
Joseph & Friends hair salon and spa began as a dream of Joseph and his wife Behnaz in the 1980’s. In 1989, with the help of his family, he opened the first salon which would be the flagship and home base of operations for years to come.
After twenty years, Joseph & Friends is considered one of the top 10 salons in Atlanta, and has grown into multiple locations, providing transformational experiences for clients. Joseph & Friends was also chosen as one of the top 200 Salons in the USA by Salon Today Magazine.
