About Jonathan:

I’m from south eastern North Carolina and practiced cosmetology there for more than a decade. I moved to Asheville and joined Ananda in the summer of 2015. Some of my hobbies include spirituality, hiking, Netflix, and a good Gin and Tonic.

What makes your hair brain sing?:

I love helping clients see themselves in a new way and creating a look that not only is flattering but fits their lifestyle. I love variety and I feel that shows in my clientele, they range from beautiful long layered cuts to edgy pixies. Color is a huge passion of mine and I take great pride in creating the perfect shade to compliment my client. I love creating beautiful blondes, reds, and rich dimensional brunettes.


Go-to davines Product:

I love the Blowdry Primer, it is my go to when doing a blow out and does all the things I need. It creates body, humidity protection, and a beautiful shine. The dry texture spray is also a personal favorite, I use it on my own hair and I love how it instantly gives your hair separation and body, it’s like dry shampoo and hairspray had a baby.
