Business partners and co-owners, Peter Galluzzo and Katie Schweighoefer met doing what they love: hair. Their collaboration brought the innovative Jump Hair & Nails to Marco Island.

Although Jump has been open since August 2014, the energy in the salon still feels exciting and new. The salon recently expanded, adding a treatment room and an additional stylist area.

Peter’s vision for Jump is that there will be “something fresh every year.” He says, “This year the spa is new. Next year, it will be something else.” In the new treatment room, Reiki and energy work is to begin this month. Also coming to Jump, Dr. James Farmouth will provide treatments such as Botox and Juviderm, by appointment.

Part of what sets Jump apart are their innovative products, like Olaplex, which Jump stylist Karen Argo calls a “game changer.” Olaplex, created by chemists, reconnects hair’s broken bonds, giving your locks a smoother, shinier and more youthful appearance. “It will give you back the hair you had in your 20s,” Karen says. It works especially well on curly hair (which tends to be broken) by reducing frizz and defining curls. The product also makes color treatments last longer.

Jump is also the only Marco Island salon to carry Yon-Ka Paris skincare. Esthetician Lucy Viana Harper describes Yon-Ka Paris as

a “results-oriented” skincare line based on five essential oils. Lucy’s skin care treatments at Jump are “personally customized” and utilize her years of experience in the industry. Custom facials are 18-steps, as opposed to the usual four to five step facials provided by many other estheticians.

Jump’s goal is that the salon never be stagnant. Stylists are constantly seeking additional training and education on the newest techniques and products in the industry.

Other ongoing changes in the salon include the décor, which is clean and fresh, with accents in Florida’s tropical colors. The vibe is inviting. Jump customers receive a warm welcome from the greeting at the door to the visibly happy and engaged stylists.

Katie sums it up, “To live in paradise and feel like you are not working is amazing.”

Jump has five stylists, who provide haircuts for men, women and children. Other hair services include color, highlights, balayage and ombrè, and treatments like Olaplex. Also available by appointment: facials, waxing, manicures, pedicures, massage and body treatments.

Jump Hair & Nails is located at 118 S. Barfield Drive, across from the Shops of Marco. Salon hours are Monday, Friday and Sunday from 9 AM-5 PM, and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 AM-7 PM. For an appointment call 239-394-5867 (JUMP). Visit their website at, or like them on Facebook at “SpaJump.”
