Jamie Morrison got involved in the salon business because she wanted to work in an environment that was fun, relaxing and professional.  This led her to open JB Salon in LaVista, which offers top of the line products and services.  A natural progression of the business was to add a boutique to her space, J’Amour, that offers contemporary women’s fashions and accessories.  They offer a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere for customers to shop and get hair and spa services.
