After graduating Barber College in 1987, and working in two other salons, Thom joined the team at The Mane Event Salon in 1993.  He took ownership of the salon in 1994 when it was located on Main St., right in the heart of downtown Franklin.  We have since relocated the salon to 1914 Columbia Ave., and were joined by my wife Sherié.  During the relocation, the salon no only underwent a fabulous facelift, but also expanded into a full service salon and spa.

We joined with KRS systems in 2007 and began expanding the business and its employees.  Thom has attended The Summit Business College, Step-up, The Redken Connection, and numerous other Matrix and Redken classes.  He is currently in the process of obtaining his Redken Color Certification.  Thom’s guests love him because he has the extraordinary ability to translate style and fashion into user friendly techniques.
