Beauty & Brass in Rudy’s Barbershop New “Atlanta” Location

Hello Divas!

Meet Micheal our new fab writer!  He visited a fab new barbershop at Ponce City Market! Check it out!


If you guys love Ponce City Market, then you’re going to park your car inside of Rudy’s lobby just to get in the chair (Lol).

Rudy’s Barbershop has been around for more than 25 years servicing both men and women. Rudy’s is based out of Seattle Washington, but has taken root in cities like Los Angeles, New York, and now Atlanta or “Hotlanta” which ever one you prefer.

I honestly created a checklist in my head, upon arriving!

Curb appeal? Check! Inviting? Check! Product knowledge? Check! Great service? Check! Check! Check!

What I love most about Rudy’s is that with talking to the team I realized they truly care about creating a positive experience for everyone. Every detail from the store design, all the way to stylist chairs mattered. Everything was thought out with the client and stylist in mind. “Every shop is unique and intentional.” -Marshall Ryan, Creative Director & Store Designer”.

Rudy’s has a warm and welcoming vibe. I felt comfortable with the stylists, I felt comfortable with the people, and I love that the stylist took the time to learn about me, learn about my hair, and then executed the most amazing cut.

I asked the stylist, Why Rudy’s Barbershop? “Well I have been with the company for about 2 years. They have become like my second home, it’s a place where I can come, be myself, and do what I love. “ –Genie Clark, Lead Cosmetologist.

This is a place that does it all! They offer an array of services from cuts, to blow outs, to shaves, and coloring. They have tons of high quality hair care products for everyone. They continue the education of the stylist and staff, teaching and training them in how to care for the client. This is a place that is open and equipped to serve Atlanta and the surrounding areas.

I asked Brendon Lynch, CEO of Rudy’s Barbershop, “What do you want people to know about Rudy’s? “

“We opened this barbershop up to both men and women because we wanted to create an environment where like-minded individuals can come enjoy each other’s company while getting really great services. This barbershop was truly created with everyone in mind. Getting to know the client’s needs and creating an experience for both the client and the stylists is important to us. “
