meet jonChao!

specialties: precision cuts, razor cuts, short hair, bangs, curly, texture, lived in cuts, foliage, lived in color

the hair universe is my playground. I was a kitchen hairstylist in my youth, lived the salon life, traveled as an educator, and goofed around backstage at the Houston ballet for a minute. I made supermodels and film actors more beautiful in NYC and now I am here at ananda!

what makes your hair brain sing? beautiful wearable hair that brings out the best of you requires a hairstylist who is also an artist, one who works comprehensively rather than following the steps, and has great listening skills to customize the perfect hair for his clients, and I can do just that.

go-to davines product: to name one of them, the oi all in one milk helps to calm the frizz and still feel weightless

what you love about ananda: it’s the creativity and uplifting ambiance that draws me in, don’t you agree?

fun fact about you: I have 48 wheels: 3 skateboards, 2 cars, 1 trailer, 3 motorcycles and only 10 bicycles at the moment
