Simply answered, Daniel Jones.
Servicing 200 clients daily,
Muse Salon & Spa is noted as one the busiest and fastest growing salons in the region. That's quite an accomplishment that makes Daniel and his husband, Jody Mason, very proud (and rich), fueling their dedication to provide a stellar experience to their upscale clientele.
There is no doubt that is Daniel Jones has skills, yet his creativity began in the most unexpected of fields--funeral sciences! After moving to Atlanta from South Carolina in 1997 for an internship, Daniel realized that funeral science just wasn't for him. Instead, he responded to an ad in the newspaper for an apprentice at a hair salon--everything was about to change. Daniel knew his parents weren't about to flip the bill for another career, so apprenticing was the only option and his drive became the leading force to success and happiness, both followed, quickly. Daniel studied while working at the salon and became a licensed hairstylist. While apprenticing, he became the busiest stylist in the salon, quite an impressive feat. As Daniel gained a huge and loyal client base, professional growth was inevitable and four years ago he opened Muse Salon & Spa.
When asked what's his secret to success, Daniel gives a one word response,"
." In addition to a great cut, hairstyle and spa treatments, there is something else that keeps customers coming back. Some, in fact, drive from other states, fly, or schedule appointments during planned Atlanta trips. Muse provides special customer care to everyone alike. The staff makes you feel special and comfortable during your visit. The Muse team offers impeccable customer service, which seems to be a dying art these days. Their motto:
"hire for attitude; train for talent."
It works. About half of their clientele come from Buckhead which is saying a lot considering the number of salons in the area. 30% of Daniel's clients fly from other states. A number of clients are local celebrities such as
. Daniel can even boast a few Hollywood A-listers clients, but I can't kiss and tell!
There's always something exciting happening at Muse. Lately, it has served as a movie set. Recently, scenes out of the upcoming

I'll leave you with a fun and amusing story that tells of interesting days at Muse Salon and proves that Daniel Jones is a super star. A regular client called for an appointment to get her hair styled the day before she was scheduled to travel abroad. Daniel advised against styling because of the very long flight ahead. Client "X" as I'll refer to her, had a motive: Diamonds! X was traveling with diamond jewelry, lots. X felt the safest way to travel with her diamonds would be by wearing them, definitely not with checking them in nor as a carrying on. " I want diamonds in my hair" proclaimed X. Unusual, yes, a problem, no! Daniel created a style to accomodate 16 karats in diamonds! Not a typo, 16 karats were stylishly tucked and secured in X's hair.
