PHILOSOPHY: THE HABITS & BELIEFS THAT DEFINE JF

Styling: "I strive to bring out those subtle intricacies and give a bold cut that is based on the architecture of the face and silhouette as well as reveal personality."
Nutrition: "My mother always said 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away.' I've been eating an apple every day for 30 yrs."
Haircare: "Grass does not grow in sand. Likewise, hair cannot grow in a dry or damaged scalp. The only products that actually work are those that reach the follicle, scalp and hair shaft."
Fitness: "I start my morning every day with a 5-8 mile run to keep my energy levels up."
Anti-Aging: "Anti-Aging is more than skin deep. Confidence knows no age."
