Jovance Professional Studios has a unique story of transforming from the award-winning Jovance Salon into an innovative business for salon professionals. Jovance Salon was founded in 2004 by Michael and Maya Parker with a mission to merge Michael’s experience in lean management into the beauty industry and create an entirely new and unique business model. Michael and Maya began meeting with four stylists, integrating their ideas to become one team. United by their shared desire to create a professional and team atmosphere, other beauty professionals began to join the Jovance team serving diverse clientele with all hair types - using care, specialized skill and speed in an upscale and family-like environment.
Jovance Salon’s story is very unique because it is one of the only multi-cultural salons on the west coast providing diverse services in an upscale atmosphere, while making clients feel part of the salon family. The strong teamwork of the stylists and technicians was proven by the efficiency of their services and showcased in their care for the clients so that each guest walked away feeling beautiful inside and out.
When Jovance Salon needed to temporarily shut down in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team began working on a plan to re-open Jovance in a whole new way. Although the closure presented some challenges at first, the team at Jovance found an opportunity to re-invent in a way to meet new industry standards, allowing beauty professionals to grow while still providing quality service. After much preparation and planning, the move was made to officially transition to Jovance Professional Studios. We found an opportunity to re-invent Jovance with a focus on professionalism, commitment to support the growth of salon owners, togetherness and cleanliness. With the strong focus on the team in a supportive atmosphere, our tenant stylists help one another with skill development through training and mentorship.
