Business of the Month - Siggers Hairdressers

SiggersJohn Siggers trained with the best in Atlanta back in 1960 with Styles by Styles, a premier beauty salon run by Styles Adamson. John spent his learning years with recognizable names like Jameson and Don Shaw whose friendships have lasted a lifetime, but John is the only one working 80 hours and still cutting hair. Hair has been a true passion for John and his family, inspired by his mother. Eucal Siggers started shampooing friends’ hair out of her home in Alabama in 1938. She eventually opened her own shop and brought up many stylists during her working years, including John and his wife Carol. Under the guidance of Eucal, John and Carol traveled the world representing the United States in international styling competitions. In both 1962 and 1963, John was named United States Hairdresser of the Year.

John and Carol opened their first salon, John’s Coiffures, when North DeKalb Mall launched in 1965. John and Carol soon realized that they would prefer to own their property rather than rent and bought the current building in Tucker in 1980. They were drawn to relocate to Tucker because by this time he and his wife had moved to the Smoke Rise neighborhood and their son Chad was attending school in Tucker. When the move was complete, they rebranded the salon Siggers Hairdressers.

In Georgia a beautician has two options to train for the certification: beauty school or apprenticeship. Siggers has based their business model on apprenticeship and that has greatly added to their success and their staying power. “Having a trained and ready pool of stylists to promote as we grew just made sense,” said John as he sat in the sun-filled break room.

John and Carol’s son Chad and his wife Amy have been part of the stylist team and leadership for years as well. Chad added, “Mom and Dad have been good to the business and the business has been good to them,” referring to their long list of loyal clients. In addition to having clients that have traveled to Tucker from around the southeast for decades, many stylists have remained for decades as well, “Helen Wilson, we all call her Grandma, has been cutting hair with us for over fifty years and has an incredibly loyal client base,”.

Every year Mayor Frank Auman selects a Tucker business to receive the annual Mayor’s Business Award. This was started back in 2018 as a way to recognize and thank long-standing local businesses. The past four recipients were Local No. 7, Cofer Brothers, FODAC and Northlake. This year the Mayor would like to honor Siggers Hair Dressers for their longevity and service to not only Tucker but the Southeast. The Mayor and Council will present John, Carol, Chad, Amy and their staff with the 2022 Mayor’s Business Award later this month at the salon. You can find Siggers Hairdressers online at and at 2166 Northlake Parkway, Tucker, GA 30084.
