style, craftsmanship and comfort.

no hype. just amazing hair.


2018 has been a wonderful year for us. Rated as one of the top 10 salons in Philadelphia, we close our doors with a 5 star Yelp rating as well as a 5 star Google rating. What we did, we did well. That however does not always pay the bills. While Atlas was an ambitious project, from the beginning it has not been financially viable, which is why we are closing the salon.

Though sad to leave, we are each excited about future endeavors, and so very happy to have had this experience together. We will keep the site up and continue to list our stylist’s new salons on the stylist page. Sarah and everyone at duross & langel will let you know how to make contact if you should somehow lose touch with your stylist. When you call they may be swamped so please be kind and patient.

Personally, I know that change can be daunting, especially if you like what we’ve created at Atlas, but this is an exciting time for us all, and we hope you will join us in celebrating our new adventures. duross & langel continues as always. You neighborhood natural soap and skin care shop. Please stop by for your favorite products or just pop in to say hi.

Thank you for everything. It has been my profound honor to have shared this experience with each of you. There is no way we could have lasted four years without the stylist’s talents and support from clients like you. Wishing you a brilliant future.
