James Bowens-Salons by JC Superstar

James Bowens has been in the barbering business for more than 23 years. He found his passion in barbering when he was younger, cutting friends and family’s hair before he had any professional education.  After receiving his Barbers license, he started to work various jobs in the industry. He has managed shops in the past and while he enjoyed his work he did not enjoy being beholden to others schedules or tied to others ideology of how a barbershop should run.  It was then that he started to plan for his own business one day. He built a strong clientele base and started to look into having a barbershop of his own. As James puts it “Salons by JC paved the way for me to open my first Barbershop.”

James watched as Salons by JC-Round Rock  was being built and decided to see what suite concepts offered. He met with the franchisee owner before the walls to the suites were up! As he saw the progress of the building, he became more excited to make the move. This was a place he could run his barbershop the way he wanted to.

J Harold’s Barbershop opened June 4, 2014. It’s an old school meets younger clientele kind of shop. James specializes in haircuts and provides hair art to his younger clientele. He doesn’t know if he will ever make the jump to a store front and that is ok. He’s enjoying the freedom to be his own boss and run the type of barbershop he has always wanted.

James can be reached via Facebook or Instagram and of course you can call him directly at  512-348-8810. To quickly book an appointment with James just visit his Styleseat page!

Deb and Fayette-Salons by JC Superstars

Talk about having the best of both worlds…..Deb and Fayette salon suite owners at Salons by JC certainly do. This dynamic mother-daughter team have been styling Coon Rapids for decades and have both brought their talents and business to Salons by JC with the opening of “Forever Young” in Suite 5.  Deb Rivard the former owner of Kids Kuts and her daughter Fayette Scheller made the move after visiting the Salons by JC in Riverdale Village even before it opened. Fay quickly realized this was a great way to reduce the overhead of her current salon and not assume a brand new 5 year lease. As Deb puts it “I have been doing this for a long time and a 5 year lease was too much of a commitment and burden.” Bringing “Forever Young” to Salons by JC allowed them to easily transition their salon and not assume future headaches and debt. Deb went on to say that the owner “Brent was great in helping in the transition and has provided tremendous support to the new salon suite owners.”

Deb and Fay were attracted to the great location and amenities that include a full-time Concierge, the freedom to schedule, and the opportunity to make as much money as you can based on your own business. Deb brings a lot of experience in marketing to her own business and continues to do that with advertising in local newspapers. She is encouraging the younger salons suite owners to market themselves and to take advantage of the marketing advice provided by Brent at Salons by JC.

Forever Young is a full-service salon specializing in haircuts and color for the young and the young at heart! Give Deb a call at 763-355-2072 or Fayette at 763-656-8044. You can also visit their website at
