Lady Jane's styles new West Michigan salon
A St. Clair Shores-based salon for men is opening its third store in West Michigan on Monday.
Lady Jane’s Haircuts for Men said its latest salon is in Walker next to Best Buy, at 3450 Alpine Ave. NW.
The salon is Lady Jane’s 20th Michigan store and its 45th location nationally across seven states.
Lady Jane’s is planning to open 11 more salons by the end of this year.
“We’re very excited to open our newest Lady Jane’s location in Walker,” said Tim McCollum, president of Lady Jane’s. “Alpine Avenue is a great area, and we’re looking forward to providing many new jobs, as we continue to expand throughout the Grand Rapids area.”
The chain’s founder, Chad Johnson, attributes the salon’s success to its “exceptional service and products” such as leather reclining chairs and plasma TVs.
New charitable foundation
Lady Jane’s also is getting ready to launch Wicked Awesome Wishes, the company’s charitable foundation.
On Aug. 23, Lady Jane’s is planning to open the foundation by attempting to break the world-record for the most haircuts given in 12 hours, as well as the individual record for most haircuts by an individual stylist in 12 hours.
All the proceeds and donations will go directly to the foundation, which willspread its funds to “those who need it most.”
