About Jon’ Ric International:
When Hall made his decision to move his career back to barbering he found a salon franchise with an opening in the Alexandria area.  He made the decision in September of 2004, “when Potomac Greens was still dirt,” and opened the salon in June of 2005 when all the construction for the area was finished.  Jon’ Ric International is now a full service salon.  “What sets this Jon’ Ric apart is that we are one of the few multicultural salons in the area,” says Hall.  

Business Philosophy:
