Specializing in Curly Hair, Haircutting, coloring & highlighting
Hey ya'll, I'm Joel!
I grew up all over the South and Midwest. I now call San Diego home and proudly serve as a professional stylist right here in La Mesa.
After traveling the world for several years, living in the Middle East along with bunches of spots around the US, I know how busy and adventurous life can be. This is exactly why I feel so committed to providing maintainable, natural styles that look amazing for those fellow adventurers at heart out there. I, myself, have a naturally very curly head of hair, so I know the struggle! There’s too many cool things to do and see. It’s important to rock a style that looks both great AND is manageable for all the wild occasions life can bring.
Before I officially become a hair professional, I worked as an illustrator, an exhibit artist in a special FX studio, and I continue to work as a representational fine arts painter. Needless to say, attention to natural detail is my jam. So,I decided to pursue the art of hair.
I love having personable, interesting conversations and getting to know you and your wild wonderfulness. I want to work together with you to provide the services, tricks, tips, and the creative detail to accentuate your natural hair qualities! I want you to feel empowered to wear your hair beautifully, naturally, and hassle free. You're on the go and have lots of exciting things to do, see and explore. Why not look beautiful AND naturally you- with simple ease?!
While I’m not in the salon, you can find me consumed with my latest painting, working out at the gym, exploring nature or experimenting with a new recipe to feed to my lovely family.
From short barbering haircuts to working with long LONG hair, I cut and color it all. So, come visit me!
