Holding Up The Sky: Adler J Rises Beyond The Glass Ceiling

Adler J Salonspa is not only one of the highest level Aveda Salons in the area; it is the one of the highest level Aveda Salons in the area that is female owned and operated and whose philanthropy to the community is just as important to their business plan as their premier products and services.

When owner operator Danielle Kellams opened her business nearly 13 years ago her vision was clear; and today that vision of her role in the community has come to fruition. Adler J SalonSpa was just promoted to a ‘Lifestyle Aveda Salon’ which is a clear proclamation of how far Danielle and her team have come to be able to offer Fort Wayne the most exclusive services and products the salon world has to offer. It is also a testament of what is to come, because it now means they are held to the highest level of training the industry offers. Their ongoing Aveda Development and Partner Support Program assures clients they will continue to offer the best and the latest of trends. Aveda Salons are a flagship to “reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink” so clients are not only getting the best, they are getting the best for the environment.

In addition to this ,Adler J Salonspa is a proud partner in the Red Carpet Experience for ‘Hello Gorgeous!’ (SEE BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS BELOW) wherein they provide complimentary, professional makeovers and cosmetic education to a nominated woman battling cancer to strengthen her confidence and empower her best-self throughout this often debilitating illness. “This is a Blessing for us to be able to offer this to Hello Gorgeous recipients” says Kellams. “It is a true honor for us.” Kellams also is one of the participants at this year’s Dancing with the Stars. A local fundraiser to support the Carriage House. “There are so many wonderful organizations to support in our community it is difficult to just pick a few.” With the busy life of a business owner, mother, wife and volunteer she is grateful for these opportunities.

“Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example of environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty but around the world.”
