The James Griffith Salon opened in Venice, Florida - August 1, 1988, as an AVEDA Concept Salon. Next came their partnership with The Gasparilla Inn & Club in Boca Grande, Florida, opening a second salon, then expanding with a third location in Sarasota, Florida in 2008.
Christine grew up in Venice and met James in 1981 at Venice Theatre. We are home grown, as are most of our AMAZING staff . . . we love Florida and our communities and look forward to servicing your needs.
We are French trained hairdressers and James and his team were the first students in the United States to attend the world-famous Jacques Dessange Academy’s advanced training class when they branched out to NYC. The James Griffith Salon staff attends continual education whether it’s to hone their technical skills or learn about the newest AVEDA products launching or the latest fashion trends. They are consistently voted “best of the best” in various categories among their local publications. Additionally, James Griffith Salon has been named to the SALON TODAY 200 by SALON TODAY Magazine multiple times, the top business publication for salon and spa owners. James is honored to also be a member of Intercoiffure, a prestigous industry group comprised of the country's top salon owners and leaders.
