Jim Grimes started it all in Lawrence. As the first Aveda salon downtown many might recall the old days of Headmasters Salon that was to become the nexus of many of the hair studios currently in town. Jim has extensive experience, style and a peerless grace. He enjoys yoga, meditation and jumping out of perfectly good planes in flight. Ayurveda concepts brought Jim and Aveda together and they are still going strong! Come in and glean a bit of zen from Jim!
