About

Our Salon Story

Personal Images Salon opened for business in the spring of 1993 and quickly became a leading salon in Jackson, MI. Owner Sherry Burditt had a goal to provide a salon atmosphere where clients felt comfortable and team members could grow professionally. Soon after, the salon expanded by adding a full service Day Spa. In an ever-evolving beauty industry, Personal Images has stood the test of time thanks to Sherry’s commitment, our talented staff, and our loyal clients.
