McCallie Jaeschke fulfilled a longtime ambition on Jan. 30. She launched Salon Five One Five at 1903 First Ave. S. Jaeschke co-owns this new business with Michael Payne.

“I’ve been in the hair industry for eight years,” Jaeschke said. “Opening my own salon has always been my dream. We had this opportunity arise and decided it was time for me to go out on my own.”

She said this business venture is the culmination of her longtime fascination with hair care.

“I’ve always done hair,” Jaeschke said. “I would color my own hair in high school. I’d do my friends’ hair for dances.”

After high school, she tried college and an office job but quickly decided that they weren’t a good fit for her. Jaeschke said she concluded that the beauty industry was a better career choice. She completed the cosmetology program at La’ James International College in 2010. Prior to opening Salon Five One Five, Jaeschke worked at another salon for eight years.

The building that now houses the salon was previously occupied by Atlas Kitchen & Bath. To make it a state-of-the-art facility for a very different enterprise a major renovation took place.

“We did an intense remodel over three weeks,” Jaeschke said. “We used all local contractors. Everything is brand new in terms of the equipment we use for hair and nails. We have all new flooring. New paint. It’s been completely remodeled. It’s really exciting to be able to have complete creative control for the design of the building, the products, the stations. All that has been so fun.”

She said the salon has four chairs. Currently the team of hair and nail specialist consists of Jaeschke and one other stylist but staff expansion is being considered.
