Jean Claude Simille opened Jean Paul Hair Salon in 1972 with his brother, Paul, at 181 Central Avenue in Albany, NY. 4 years later, they moved their operation to a bigger space in the Dewitt Clinton Building on State Street, a beautiful Salon overlooking the Capitol.
After the brothers separated, Paul moved to Colorado where he ran 2 successful Salons in Aspen and Crested Butte. Jean-Claude stayed in Albany and in 1986 expanded the business to Stuyvesant Plaza in a 4000 sq. ft. space. The move proved to be very successful, 3 years later the downtown store was sold and the Spa was open in a 9000 sq. ft. space. Encouraged by the success of the Salon and the Spa and Jean-Claude’s faith in the future of the region, in 2012, a third location was open in “Newton Plaza” in Latham, NY.
Today “Jean Paul” is a household word in the Capital Region after 40 years in the Hair Salon and Spa Industry.
