About Us

Our Story

We wanted to open a business that represents us, what we do and what we want for our clients.  

Our name "The Station" came to be as we were thinking about our city and its rich history.  The Choo-Choo is certainly a focal point of Chattanooga.  Before it was known by its now infamous name it was called "Terminal Station".  We wanted to tie in a bit of history with the opening of our salon and barbershop and the unique client experience you'll receive when you visit our team and sit at their "station".

Joy Clemons


Joy's vision for The Station is for every client to have an extraordinary experience from start to finish.

Even though she is not behind the chair, she loves the hair and beauty industry and found that owning a salon and barbershop is her unique way of combining this with her many years of experience in business and finance.

Joy's passion for excellence is the driving force behind making sure our team of designers grow and stay on top of industry trends through continued education in classes, workshops and hair shows.
