The B. Monroe Story
B. Monroe Salon began in October of 2008 as Signature Salon, founded by Nichole Mitchell Brewer. Nichole opened Signature Salon with the dream of:
- Giving Macon a comprehensive and unique salon experience
- Creating a salon that gave back to the community
- Offering hope for stylists who wanted to achieve a successful career on a proven career path
Despite being only 24 years old, Nichole had a knack for cultivating strong relationships with her clients and a natural talent for cosmetology. Signature Salon opened with five stylists at its original location on Forsyth Road where they provided superior services for six years.
“Cosmetology has been an interest ever since I was young. I had a wonderful mentor at a local salon who told me that I could not only have a career doing something fun, but that I could be a positive influence. After enrolling in cosmetology school, I worked at a salon and fell in love, interacting with people and making them look and feel their very best.”
By the summer of 2014, Signature Salon had grown enough to construct a new, more permanent home on Bass Road in North Macon. This beautiful location opened with 9 stylists and a nail technician. In August 2016, after two more successful years, Signature opened a second location on Cherry Street, joining the revitalization of downtown Macon. Throughout the years, they have added numerous cosmetic services, such as spray tans and hair extensions, as they continue to expand and meet the needs of their growing clientele.
In 2018, the salon’s 10th year, Signature rebranded to become B. Monroe Salon. The name change mirrors the evolution and growth of the salon. When Nichole and her team started in 2008, they had no idea of the success or growth the company would experience in just 10 short years. The first decade was very much a period of learning and self-discovery. With a unique, established identity, the B. Monroe team is ready to dive hair first into the next decade.
“We’re dedicated to empowering our team and to the longevity of our careers. Our mission is to redefine the hair industry with a completely new mindset of being career-minded versus just being a hairstylist. The B. Monroe culture is fun, supportive, and knowledgeable which creates a positive work environment that allows our stylists to truly thrive.”
B. Monroe is obsessed with their guests and wanted to pamper their community head to toe. A boutique was added to each salon location in the Spring of 2018 to offer a chic shopping experience for customers while they were visiting the salon. The boutique sections carry a wide array of apparel, jewelry, shoes, and accessories.
B. Monroe Salon continued to grow and expanded to a third salon location in Kathleen Georgia which opened in April 2019. This location offers full hair services, airbrush tanning, and makeup services.
Exciting changes are happening at B. Monroe for Fall/Winter of 2019! This Fall, we are transitioning the Cherry Street location into a full-time clothing and accessories B. Monroe Boutique. B. Monroe is enthusiastic for the future of 551 Cherry Street as it evolves into a B. Monroe Boutique!
The B. Monroe Career

The B. Monroe Community
At B. Monroe Salon, we feel so blessed and embraced by our community and we want to always give back and support our city through a variety of amazing organizations. We have organized and participated in events supporting the New City Church, Crisis Line and Safe House, United in Pink, Susan G. Komen, Locks of Love, Jay’s Hope, and others.
At B. Monroe Salon, we are so proud to support Jay’s Hope because it’s a local organization that helps families right here in our community. Jay’s Hope is a Christian organization and they focus on the entire family. At Christmas, Jay’s Hope gives gifts to the whole family, which is so special because they understand that the whole family is deeply affected by childhood cancer. They always think of things that others don’t – like providing gas cards and financial support for hotel stays. Whatever the family needs, Jay’s Hope comes up with a solution.
