About Salons by JC: The Beginning

More than a career makeover.

In 1997, Jack Griffey and Cecil Miller began their journey to transform the beauty industry one salon suite at a time. Like most young 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 driven beauty and wellness specialists ready to break free from the traditional salon model.

The company has since moved its headquarters from Dallas to San Antonio, where it continues to grow through franchising. Today, Salons by JC has 53 locations in over 20 states and Canada.

In 2016 Salons by JC plans to add 25 more locations throughout the U.S. and Canada and is committed to developing over 200 stores in all major markets over the next several years.

More than hair.

Salons by JC’s success proves there are major shifts in the industry. With new disciplines and specialties emerging every year, the traditional salon model focused around hair and nail services, quick turnarounds, and one-size fits-all solutions is slowly becoming obsolete. In contrast, Salons by JC empowers beauty and wellness specialists like you with salon suite rental opportunities. We provide you with all the tools you need to operate a business tailored to your strengths and areas of interest.
