L. Jones Salon Grand Opening

Today was my big day! It was my first day at my very own salon!  I must say it took a little bit of adjusting but I think I got the groove of things down now.  I am actually typing this from my salon while in between clients since for some strange reason I am not hungry on my lunch break.  There is free wifi for myself and my clients and I must say, I could really get used to this!  Here are some pics of the place with no one in it.  I felt like you didn't get a fair glimpse of the place from the last post since there were so many people in the background.

I made my dryers extra cozy for all of my clients who decide on a style that may have them under there for a while. And they will have plenty of magazines to read while they wait if they are not taking advantage of the free wi-fi option.  I also have a radio playing
sweet melodies in the background.  My good friend Shay of made those chevron pillows for me.  I just love them! Ya'll be sure to check out her blog, she sews things and for someone to not have any formal training she's pretty great.

I added the hot pink curtains because if there is ever any client that may be uncomfortable with others seeing her hair I can add an extra bit of privacy.  Plus they were the only ones left at the store I went to so they must have been waiting on me to come pick them up!

I'm a firm believer in faith.  The bible tells us that if you have the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains.  I have learned that when you trust God to do what he says he will do and to obey Him, anything is possible.  If you believe you can do something, you will!  It all starts in your mind.  If anyone would have seen my appointment book a few years ago, you would never have believed that I could have my own salon. But God!! Never underestimate Him or yourself!

Retail shelves stocked with my very own products!  Not only stocked, but they have been selling like hotcakes!  I am going to have to replenish very soon.  Remember, orders can be placed by clicking the shop tab on this blog.  I send out orders within 24 hours.

My shampoo bowl is a bit different than what I'm used to.  It is also my styling station as well!  The good thing about it is that my clients don't have to keep getting up.  They come in, sit down, lean back to get the shampoo experience, and afterwards they sit right up and I can begin setting the hair.  It's quite cool if you ask me.

A few inspirational quotes, you never know who it may affect.  Plus it helps me stay positive.

Have you ever had an idea or dream that seemed extremely far fetched?  This sign is for you. Go for it! It just might work...

Another inspirational quote and my beautiful family. God definitely did something amazing when he put these two people in my life. Now can't imagine life without either one of them!

An extra waiting chair for just in case.  Comes equipped with a throw if anyone is too cold.

My name outside of my suite! I just love it.  And if you are ever in the Birmingham, AL area come see me! I'm always taking new clients.  Appointments can be booked online at

And now you have had the grand tour! And again, a big thank you to all of my clients who have supported me since the beginning when I had no idea what I was doing!  And thank you to all of my blog readers who continue to send comments and messages of encouragement! Even if I don't respond back, I read every single one of them and it means a lot.


  1. Congrats! I needed this post today..especially about the appointment book. I am just starting out but my faith is in God that I will be booked one day soon. You are an excellent testimony and example. Be blessed!

  2. Congratulations! Your salon is beautiful!
