Jon discovered early in life that his future would be in hair. At the young age of five, he would watch in awe as a master stylist transformed his mother’s hair during frequent visits to a Paul Mitchell salon. From then on, he was hooked. Jon went on to graduate at the top of his class from the Iowa School of Beauty when he was just 18. Upon graduation, he quickly landed work with celebrities including Bette Midler and Janet Jackson. Jon continued to harness his skills as a stylist at a myriad of notable institutions, including Bumble & Bumble in New York, Vidal Sassoon in Los Angeles and Jingles in London. He spent five years working for famed stylist Oribe at his Fifth Avenue Salon in New York where he styled countless runway shows and honed his craft. Jon then moved to Nashville, his home for the past 13 years, and has styled the likes of LeAnn Rimes, Alan Jackson, Lisa Marie Presley and Poison.
