The Joseph Koniak brand encapsulates the person, the achievements and the aspirations of Joseph Koniak, and continually evolves to meet the changing needs of clients, organisations and brands.
Joseph Koniak is an award-winning and dedicated hair artist who hails from an extraordinary creative background. The son of Michael Collis, co-founder of the globally acclaimed Molton Brown hair and beauty brand, Joseph worked under the tutelage of his father for seven years to become the youngest Artistic Director of the Molton Brown salons before opening his own premises in 1999.
Having tended the tresses of some of the most famous names in the world of fashion, film and publishing, Joseph now partners with Eleven Hair as Artistic Director at 11 Blenheim street, Mayfair W1S 1LL. The neighbourhood has strong family associations for him, as his grandmother, Joan Burstein CBE, co- founded Browns boutique in South Molton Street in 1970.
Joseph prides himself on offering a personal, in-depth service to match the lifestyle of his clients. Salon excellence is maintained by each member of his highly-proficient team who have been trained to bring passion, quality and style to every occasion.
The Joseph Koniak mission is quite simply, "To make the world a more beautiful place, one guest at a time”, and the ethos is equally simple; Joseph Koniak demands ‘Passion for Perfection’ in everything he does.
As well as running a successful salon, Joseph has a celebrity client list of some of the biggest names in show business - working his magic in both the film and fashion industries.
