juju salon & organics is an intersection of wellness, beauty, design, sustainability and community. Our mission is to help people live healthier, minimize their carbon footprint, and think sustainably without having to sacrifice a great look and style.
For over a decade, juju salon & organics has been on the cutting edge of all-natural, non-toxic, and organic professional hair, skin, and body products and services.
juju salon & organics started in 2005 as a small organic hair salon owned and operated by stylist Juliene Featherman in the Queen Village neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With a lifelong passion for holistic, sustainable living, Julie wanted to create a salon where the customer felt comfortable, healthy, and cared for. juju salon & organics became the first wholly organic salon in the Philadelphia area.
Julie, a graduate of Temple University, the Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, a certified cosmetology instructor, a former paralegal and a mother of two, feels she is doing her service to the community. “I want to help others by doing business with cruelty-free, charitable manufacturers who are responsible to our communities and to our planet,” she says. juju is committed to its sustainable and ecological philosophy in all aspects of its business.
The catalyst for Julie’s commitment to health and an organic lifestyle was the birth of her first daughter, Lucie. It was then she chose to fully put into practice her education in Eastern religion as well as her own private practices of yoga and vegetarianism. juju, which means magic or a holistic charm used for healing in West African culture, is also Julie’s childhood nickname. The salon is an outward expression of the inner ideology she has come to embrace throughout the years.
“I literally had the best possible experience at this salon after trying another organic salon. I was totally thrilled with my experience and will be making this my home salon from now on.”
