My hair person just opened a brand new salon in Birmingham, AL called Hairfolk. Check out their new digs!
HairFolk Salon | Birmingham, AL
Founded by highly sought-after hair stylist Eric Goss in September of 2017, Hairfolk is Birmingham’s newest high-end hair salon that specializes in expert cuts, styling and coloring techniques, such as balayage, and most importantly, stylists you can trust. This premier hair salon is NOW OPEN and is located in the heart of Birmingham’s Avondale neighborhood on 4th Avenue South.
About the Owner
In 2008, Eric left a successful career in retail after his partner Justin encouraged him to take his small town Mississippi dream of becoming a high-end hair stylist and make it a reality. Today, after a thorough apprenticeship and years spent working in Birmingham’s best salons, Eric is respected as a top stylist in Birmingham and throughout the South. If you become a client of Eric’s or his salon, their mission is to make you feel like family.
“I really pride myself on giving my clients 100% of who I am.”

The salon was designed by Owner Eric Goss and his partner, Justin Wygal. They are interior masterminds and nailed every aspect of design in the salon.
Sit Back and Relax
Enjoy a nice refreshing beverage when you check in; maybe a local beer from Cahaba Brewing, a glass of wine, a spot of tea, a soda. This salon has an “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” attitude, so don’t be shy about sipping some Chardonnay at noon–you deserve it!
Make Yourself at Home
Going to Hairfolk doesn’t feel like running another errand, or checking another task off your never-ending to-do list–and that’s on purpose. From the street, you can’t tell if Hairfolk is a hair salon or your best friend’s fab new house in Avondale. In fact, Goss kept the original residence on the property and converted the interior to suit his businesses needs. Upon entering the salon, couches and comfy chairs abound, so whether you’re waiting for your appointment to start or waiting for your color to set in, you feel like you’re just relaxing in a friend’s living room.
Not Your Average Beauty Salon in Birmingham, AL
You won’t find piles of magazines sprawled all over the salon floor. While you wait to start your appointment, or are processing color, you can use one of many tablets to virtually flip through any magazine of your choice!
It’s an Oribe dream! All the products they use when styling your hair can be purchased on your way out. They also sell those amazing Capri Blue candles that Anthropologie has!

Best Hair Salon in Birmingham, AL
Most people would say that they trust their hairdresser with their life. Do you agree? I know plenty of folks who assess their day based on a “good hair day” or a “bad hair day.” As many of us know from experience, all it takes is one hack job of a haircut, or a horrific color-job to send you running for the hills. If all this is true, then I would be willing to bet that you invest a lot of time and money into how your hair looks. I know I do!
Other top hair salons in Birmingham include: Salon U in Homewood, AL. I actually used to get my lashes done here by Ana. My dad goes to Forecast Salon in Homewood and I have also heard great things from Deanna about Wheel House Salon in Homewood.
Have a great (hair) day!
