California born and bred, Jamie has been using hair as a from of expression since the age of 12. The ability to transform someone to look and feel completely different with the proper use of shapes and geometry captivated her from a young age. Jamie’s aesthetic has evolved over the past 2 decades from the rebellious mohawks and Betty Page bangs that allured her in junior high school to, now, a softer more wearable approach that suit her clients' needs. Jamie sees herself as a conduit for her clients as she facilitates their self expression through hair. Empowering her clients and helping them achieve their hair dreams has always been Jamie's most powerful vision.
Jamie's passion for hairdressing has taken her all over the world - from Paris Fashion Week to cutting hair in the jungles of South America. It all started at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, California where she learned the famed namesake's geometrical precision cutting approach. After graduation, she moved to New York City in 2006 to train with Bumble and Bumble and begin her cultivation of razor techniques. It was here that Jamie truly discovered a vision in her work, melding geometry with the sculpting abilities of the razor to create lived in shapes with both movement and structure.
Jamie is not only salon savvy, she has also earned her place as a sought-after educator, and wedding and editorial stylist. Backstage at New York Fashion Week since 2006, she has created hairstyles for designers such as Erin Fetherston, Zac Posen, Karen Walker, Mark Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Loagan Nietzel, and Chromat. Her work has also appeared in Allure, Teen Vogue, Nylon, W, Pop Magazine and Italian Vogue.
Jamie aesthetic has evolved into one of natural beauty, as rich and raw as the coast from which she hails. Jamie draws inspiration from a never-ending fascination with the world at large and her desires to transform and enhance people through her work.
Jamie is currently taking clients at Common Good Salon in the East Village, NYC.
