Jason’s career in hair started by styling his friends in high school. He then attended the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica followed by an apprenticeship at Architects & Heroes. After his apprenticeship Jason was offered an opportunity to do hair on a movie; he took that chance and ended up working in film for 20 years. During his film career he also became known for his editorial and advertising work.
Jason loves glamour and dress up as much as he loves wash and wear hair. His strengths are working with the hair’s natural texture and movement to create a shape and a cut that is personalized for each client, making it perfect to style or leave alone. He keeps himself inspired by following fashion week and people watching.
Pamela’s interest in haircutting began as a child when she would sweep hair at the local salon after school. She was fascinated by the process of haircutting, and throughout her life continued to be drawn to the craft despite explorations in other occupations. Anytime a friend needed a kitchen-cut, she was willing and available.
Finally, she took the leap and began her apprenticeship at Barrow Salon, completing her advanced education here at Harper Paige. She believes that with the continuing (r)evolution of fashion, that education is a lifetime process. She is excited by the prospect that there will always be an element of pushing the envelope in this industry; but also, that keeping it simple can most times be the best solution.
Her time away from the salon is spent learning the art of Flamenco, rolling on 2-wheels or 8, getting fresh air, supporting her local art and music community, and giving her pibbles as many kisses as they can handle.
