When Jason was in the eighth grade he took a career aptitude test. Cosmetologist came up number one! "Is that like a Russian astronaut?"Jason asked. "Nope, it's someone who applies makeup on people." said the young, ill-informed test giver. Jason laughed it off and repressed all urges to play with peoples hair for the next 20 years! After pursuing a career in ceramics, Jason woke up one day in 2001 and realized that it really is hard to make a living as an artist! With a push from his mother (a counselor turned hair stylist) Jason enrolled in beauty school and hasn't looked back! "I'm still an artist," Jason says "but now I'm a fiber artist!" When creating with hair, Jason likes to figure out what a person's hair wants to do and than make it to do that really well. And Jason's mom? She moved to Corvallis in 2013 and has become an obsessive ceramicist!
Garrett moved to the Willamette Valley 21 years ago from Reno, Nevada. He was originally a roofer until he decided to enroll in cosmetology school. It was then, 14 years ago, that he found his new passion -a knack for hair - and fell in love with the industry. Garrett was drawn towards a smaller, more intimate, family-like salon and is available at Jason'Salon in Corvallis for family and longtime loyal clients. His head massages, precision cuts and knowledge of hair color have caused a stir in the community. When asked what he enjoys most about his profession Garrett answers "I love making people feel good about the way they look. I love working with people and value the relationships that I build with my clients."
