The Ivy Social Salon popped up seemingly overnight at 279 East Main St. in downtown Jackson.
Owners, Julz Stewart along with partner, Kelcie Carter, quietly started renovations back in October of 2017, unveiling the big finish just last month. The salon features a wide range of services for men and ladies, including all the basics, plus beard care and full facials, just to name a few.
Although Julz's specialty is men's cuts, she stresses that the Ivy Social Salon is not just for men. In fact, the Ivy has its own color correction specialist in Emily Hollback, who has 5 years' experience in her field. Basic services start at just $13.
A special feature of the new business is that customers will be treated to complimentary beer and cold-brew coffee while they wait for their services.
Big plans are in the works as the Ivy Social Salon prepares to bring in rotating tattoo artists, which the business will accommodate in the evenings.
The duo also hope to organize special events for kids, such as a daddy/daughter day and even host massage therapy sessions.
Kelcie's father, Larry Carter, is given credit for the beautiful renovations of the historic downtown Jackson building, which is located next door to The Tea Caddy. With Mr. Carter's assistance, Julz and Kelcie even managed to save and preserve the original flooring in the establishment.
Business hours are Monday thru Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., except for Thursday, when the Ivy will open from noon to 7 p.m. Weekend hours include Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call 740-577-9184 or find the Ivy Social Salon on the Booksy app. Walk-ins are also welcome.
