Hello, I'm Justin, a hairstylist with over 18 years of experience, and hair isn't just my profession; it's my passion. When I'm not crafting beautiful styles, you'll find me immersed in the wonderful chaos of my family – a teenage daughter named Jazlyn, two lively dogs, Lexi and Grey, and my loving husband, Keith. Family is at the core of everything I do.
Beyond the salon, my life is a blend of chic fashion, a touch of nerdy geekiness, and a love for the culinary arts. I devour anything from mystery novels and sci-fi to flipping through the pages of a comic book. In another life, I might have been a chef – I love to cook, and the kitchen is my happy place.
My family is a self-proclaimed movie house; you'll likely find us at the theaters on any given night during the week. We believe in the magic of storytelling and the shared experience of a good film.
I'm a firm believer in the power of community, something often overlooked in our fast-paced lives. Building connections with like-minded individuals is something I treasure.
People often ask me what drew me to the world of hairstyling. The simple answer? My mom. Growing up, I witnessed her transformation into a quintessential New York City girl, always impeccably styled. She danced to the beat of her own drum, a trait I've inherited.
The longer answer lies in a significant moment when my mom, due to a work-related accident, felt she couldn't embrace her beauty. I stepped in to recreate the magic I'd watched her perform countless times. That transformative experience, turning her 'meh' into radiant, reignited something within me. It was in that moment, as we both shed tears – hers of joy and mine of realization – that I fell in love with the art of hairstyling.
So, when you choose me as your stylist, you're not just getting years of expertise; you're inviting someone who understands the power of beauty, transformation, and the importance of making every client feel special. I look forward to meeting you and creating magic with my own hands, just as I did for my mom all those years ago.
