History Established in 2006 When Douglas Weaver started cutting hair in the mid 1960s his vision for his own salon was based on three simple principles; provide an uncompromising level of service for his guests, create opportunity for professional growth for young people within the salon industry, and to give back to the communities that support Douglas J. In 1967, when Douglas and his wife Sharon, made the decision to open a salon, it was a small affair with big intentions. The salon employed 6 team members and was located in a small space in East Lansing. The salon has since moved to Okemos, where it remains today. Along with developing the Douglas J Aveda Institutes, Scott and TJ also introduced a new salon brand, the Douglas J eXchange, to the family of companies. The Douglas J eXchange is an intimate salon with an urban appeal and licensed technicians. The East Lansing eXchange opened its doors in 2002, and the Ann Arbor eXchange opened its doors in 2006.
