Owner & Lead Stylist
Sidney Hollwager is one of Atlanta’s most-celebrated stylists, whose flair for cut and color has been featured multiple times in Allure. His passion for the profession is personal; Sidney’s beloved late aunt was a hardworking hairdresser and entrepreneur who cultivated his earliest ideas of what a salon could – and should – be. Salon Vagabond was the natural evolution of her teachings, but it could not have become a reality without Sidney’s diligence and high standards. For nearly three decades, he worked in highly regarded salons across the United States and Canada, among them EDRIS Salon and Warren Tricomi in New York City. At the same time, he focused on honing his skills through extensive training with Vidal Sassoon, Toni and Guy, and L’Oréal Professionnel SOHO Academy NYC. Now at the helm of his own business, Sidney aims to create a nurturing environment where everyone looks and feels their best.

Owner & Creative Director
For decades, D.J. VanCronkhite’s energy and imagination have propelled him to success in the music, wellness, & fitness industries. Now creative director at Salon Vagabond, D.J. is an instrumental – and total – partner in fashioning and maintaining all aspects of the salon’s procedures, pulse, and potential. Humble to a fault, D.J. understands that experience is the greatest teacher, and he devotes himself to encouraging that spirit of growth and discovery throughout the salon. Much of his work is behind the scenes and without fanfare; he encourages and develops inventive solutions, fresh ideas, and great talent on a daily basis. The rest is decidedly public. A gifted and entirely self-taught portrait photographer and videographer, D.J. is a hybrid creative who captures the spirit and evolution of the salon’s brand and culture with his stills and films, illustrating real time all that Salon Vagabond has been and will become.
