With over two decades of experience in the hair industry, Jason’s career as a colorist has allowed him to gain experience, in many facets of the business. He has had the privilege of working in education, television, print, film, and as head of departments. It all began with his love of art, photography, and fashion, ultimately leading him to cosmetology school.
Upon completion, Jason was offered an apprenticeship at Vidal Sassoon in Beverly Hills. This garnered him international recognition, as well as, the opportunity to pursue training in London. He then joined the Vidal Sassoon color team at the Beverly Hills salon where he cultivated a loyal clientele.
He also collaborated with the creative team on workshops, photo shoots, and technical seminars. In addition, he mentored and trained future colorists throughout their apprenticeship.
While Jason has an appreciation for working with all hair types, textures, and colors, he also enjoys a challenge. His strength is color correction work. Jason believes, “It is gratifying to witness a client’s demeanour change completely when they see what they thought was irreparable damage, transformed into more than expected.” His attentiveness, attention to detail, and warmth have catalyzed his success professionally and personally. When he has spare time he spends most of it in the company of friends and family; including his dog Dax.
Fun Fact: Jason loves cooking for any occasion and once considered a career in culinary arts. He also has a keen eye for photography.
