The story of Salons by JC
In 1997, Jack Griffey and Cecil Miller began their journey to transform the beauty industry one salon suite at a time. Like most entrepreneurs, they started out with a big idea, but had to learn how to start and run a business from scratch. After a lot of perseverance and hard work, Salons by JC opened its doors in 1998 in Dallas, Texas – welcoming beauty and wellness specialists who were ready to break free from the traditional salon model.
Today, Salons by JC has grown tremendously to over 100 locations in the US and Canada. We are making it possible for driven salon professionals to become independent, start their own salon business, and grow their own brand.
