Jacob Leatherman
Senior Stylist / Colorist / Extension Specialist

As a young kid, my parents recognized early on my creativity and passion for the arts. When I was four years old, I woke up on a sunny California Christmas morning to unwrap my first pair of dance shoes and a blow-dryer. I have worked in the entertainment industry as an actor and dancer for over 20 years, and had the chance to share the stage with many great artists. From make-up, to hair, to styling, the transformation from dressing room to the stage has always been one of my favorite things to watch. In the salon, I take pride in creating that same experience for each guest in making sure they leave looking and feeling like a star. Whether it be an exciting color change, a fresh new haircut, hair extensions or my favorite, an amazing style, I want to share with you my love for not only the art of hairdressing, but the art of life. Remember, your hair is your best accessory so make a bold statement
