Local Business Spotlight: J|CO Salon by Jessica Shay

    J|CO Salon is one of Main Street Forest City’s gems.  A partner salon of Modern Salon and Spa in Charlotte NC, it is the first and only salon using organic and non-toxic products in our area. They recently celebrated their first anniversary and redesigned the salon! I highly suggest you stop in to check them out and make an appointment.


    Owner and Creative Director, Jessica Phillips knew what she wanted to do with her life in high school and did just that, a rarity. While I was sitting in her chair for a much-needed cut and color she told me her story and I was beyond inspired. After going to school to become a hairstylist, Jessica worked at local salons, acquired her cosmetology instructor license and taught at ICC and Gaston Community College before deciding to open her own salon. She knew what she wanted and knew the area needed it as well – expertly trained stylists that stay up to date in every way, paired with organic products from Italy. Heaven, am I right!? Learn more about the Organic Pure Care product line here. Jessica has recently become a Babe Extensions Educator and is highly trained in hair extensions.

    Jessica had a dream to have a salon that her small town needed. Her goal was to bring a big city feel to a small town and give the community everything they deserved.


    J|CO Salon offers so much more than cut and color – extensions, scalp treatments, keratin treatments, spray tans, scalp and hand massage are just a few of their amazing services. Rest assured, all stylists attend training, trade shows, and in-salon education constantly. Jessica keeps herself up to date as often as weekly with online webinars and courses that Modern Salon and Spa offers. 

    J|CO Salon is located on Main Street Forest City, right beside Mirror Mirror Boutique and in the same section as Ellie Mae’s Tavern, making it easy to treat yourself in all categories – beauty, fashion, and food!
