We’ve Expanded Our Grand Rapids Footprint!


Douglas J is pleased to announce the expansion of salon services in Grand Rapids following the acquisition of Phillip Michael Salon.

Since opening in Grand Rapids in 2007, the Douglas J Aveda Institute has continued to grow. With strong relationships already established in West Michigan, we felt it was a good time to expand upon our brand, knowing we can now offer our students a career path to continue with Douglas J as a salon professional in this part of the state

Bryon Center Team

Douglas J is committed to West Michigan, evidenced through its investment in local talent and businesses. The salon anticipates creating additional jobs as guest demand increases as a result of exceptional service.

Phillip Kissinger had this to say about the news:

“This is a perfect alignment of our collective culture and values. I truly love interacting with guests in a positive salon environment. Making them look and feel their best will always be a passion of mine.”

An industry veteran, Kissinger has owned the salon for a decade and boasts more than 20 years of experience. He will continue to work behind the chair daily as operations transition to Douglas J, as will stylists and Douglas J alumni Erica Straayer and Kelly Schlicklin.

The salon is located at 5751 Byron Center Avenue SW, Suite E, in Wyoming, Michigan. Reservations can be made by calling 616.532.9500.
