Our History

Bob Steele Salon was founded on June 15, 1979.  It was fate that Bob Steele became a part of the industry.  After meeting a hairstylist at a party, he decided to go to cosmetology school, and 6 years after beginning his career, he opened his own salon.  The defining moment for Bob, and the salon, was 2 years after opening.  He was left with no stylists and was working all day with the help of a few assistants.  In just 2 years, he rebuilt the salon to be even more successful than before.  From that point forward, the salon continued to grow.  The philosophy of the salon was built around a quote from Zig Zigler; "You can get everything in life that you want if you'll just help enough other people get what they want".  The idea was to support new stylists as they established their career and encourage them to continually grow.

In 1999, the salon was approached by Post Properties to join their new high-end development, Post Riverside.  After moving to the Post Riverside community, Bob Steele Salon became one of the few premier luxury salon locations at the time.  The Atlanta Post Riverside salon has grown to house over 30 stylists.  In 2004, Bob Steele and Amanda Hair struck a deal for the buyout of the Corporation and Bob Steele Salon expanded through a merger with a salon in Marietta.  To better accommodate our clients, we also opened our Salon Support Center and support offices in East Cobb the same year.  A year later, our third location on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta was opened.  Bob Steele continued to run the company, alongside Amanda Hair, until 2009 when he decided to retire and have fun!

Amanda Hair (yea, Hair is really her last name!) continues to manage the company with the same 6 core values Bob Steele Salon has always had.  Caring, Community, Continuous Improvement, Having Fun, Award Winning, and Integrity are what make Bob Steele Salon.  The founding philosophy still stands today.  We believe in building strong and lasting relationships with our team and guests.
