Working hard on many weekends also gives her the perfect excuse for weekend getaways with the hubs and a tall glass of wine. But If she could be anywhere in the world, it would be Disney. A busy woman can dream, too, right?

Jimmy has been with the salon for about 2 years and has loved every second of it. Everyone loves Jimmy’s scalp massages & product recommendations but his ever changing hair colors are always a hit!
Before we were lucky enough to have Jimmy on our staff, he was first brought to us as a client when he was just a kid! Once we discovered his adorable personality and passion for the salon world, we knew he'd be the perfect addition to our work family.
Jimmy is going to be practicing his skills on our salon floor under our many, talented stylists and we couldn't be more excited to help him further his education at J. Clay Salon. He has been such a helpful addition to our team doubling not only as an assistant but our (salon) certified handyman!
When he isn't spending his time with us, he enjoys traveling to Savannah - specifically for the river, and volunteers at a local dog rescue!
We are so excited for his new journey as an apprentice, and are certain you will enjoy getting to know him and watch him grow as he continues to make leaps and bounds in his career!
.... hopefully he'll still have time to change our lightbulbs.
With 3 years of experience, Jeni has stepped out onto the salon floor full force and is doing some amazing work. Outside of her love for her clients, Jeni was also sure to answer this question by recognizing her work family - and we love her response.
"I really enjoy the people I work with the most. All the stylists are so willing to share and explain any techniques or tips they have discovered over their many years in the industry. They genuinely care about helping each other be the best stylist they can be and continuing education."
When it comes to travel she is definitely not the picky type. "Literally, anywhere!" were her exact words. Whether its the beach, a mountain cabin or even a local theme park or city, Jeni is there in a heart beat. But as a new homeowner, she really enjoys spending her time with her 5 year old fur baby, Zira and doing home projects to transform her house into a home.
As you can see there is a lot to love about this girl. Jeni is a vital asset to our team and is quick to do whatever necessary to ensure her clients are taken care of. We are so happy to be the ones behind her journey as a stylist here and look forward to all the happy faces and fantastic work she will be inventing here!
