“Strength doesn’t come from what you can do it comes from overcoming the things you thought you couldn’t.”
The day Jay decided to change his life, he walked home from his lunch shift at an Irish Pub restaurant where he had worked as a server. Remembering the moment so clearl, as he knew he couldn’t keep working as a server, and knew that traditional college was not for him. As the answer came, the day instantly grew brighter, and Jay knew with certainty that this industry was his path. Since that day jay has been a stylist for 17 years! Attending multiple education classes, & honing in on his skills, such as Goldwell Foundation Formulation NYC, Goldwell Formulation Foundations in Milwaukee, creative cutting with Jay Mahmood, Hair Cutting Foundations with Vivienne Mackinder, Increase Your Creative Edge with Vivienne Mackinder, Creative Cutting Series with Nick Beraidi, & Vidal Sassoon ABC Cutting Chicago (Just to name a few.) Jay has worked tremendously hard to get to where he is today! He says “it was a moment of Divine Intervention.” One that he’s been so grateful for since the first moment he picked up a pair of shears.
