ABOUT + CAREERS
JAX Salon and Spa is dedicated to service by promoting health, self-confidence and beauty. We prefer to use plant and mineral based products and a soft human touch.
Jewel Call lived by love and instilled within others the importance of loving one another. In the early 1960s, Jewel opened her first salon in Tacoma, Washington and later grew her business by adding two more locations which she ran for 25 years. The foundation to her success was her focus on excellent customer service combined with positive employee relations. With the nickname Sarge, Jewel was known as a tough boss, but was strong on love, praise and advice.
Following in his mother’s footsteps, in 1982 Jack Call opened the doors to the first Aveda Concept Salon on the west coast with the dream of developing a creative team of well-educated and highly trained individuals who shared his passion of spreading love and beauty. Originally located on 6th Avenue in Tacoma, JAX moved to downtown Gig Harbor on Judson Street. In 2008 JAX moved to its current location on Harborview Drive while simultaneously expanding into a spa. Jack humbly dedicates the last 30 years of success to his mother’s inspiration and mentorship.
As a third-generation hairdresser, Jack’s son, Austin Call, works side-by-side with his father in hopes of continuing the family legacy of Jewel Call.
“And love one another.”
In loving memory of Jewel G. Call | 1922-2016
