DESCRIPTION: Located in the heat of Buckhead, Jamison Shaw Hairdressers is a fifty-year old, third generation, family-owned and operated salon. It operated under the phrase, "three salons in one." The space includes three sets of dressing rooms, three sets of bathrooms and three distinctive styling areas. The result is a cozy and inviting facility, particularly to new guests, who might otherwise be intimated the shear size. The salon's most recent remodel focused on the front-interior space which is comprised of the retail area, point of sale space and reception.
"Our decision to simultaneously expand our front desks was aimed specifically at increasing profitability by adding two additional cash drawers, a fourth phone line at the desks and a third printer. Our remodel created a marked improvement over our prior front desks, which we had long ago grown out, and has enhanced the productivity of our front desk operations exponentially."- Candy Shaw Codner
