Jack Thomas | A Marquee Salon in Historic Danville

Design • Development • Web-focused Photography • Copywriting

We knew before getting started that the folks at Jack Thomas were looking to elevate the salon game in an affluent area already saturated with consumer options. They were completely gutting their space and building fully custom from floor to ceiling. They were bringing in top-tier talent from some of the best, established salons in the area. The ownersrhip had built a name for themselves in the industry, but this was a first venture into their own space. With significant capital investments in a competive market, results were needed.
