In My Own Words
UPDATED OCT 2014: Jason has moved to Jami Symons Salon as a stylist
I am the Creative Director for Edges Salon and Spa Downtown and a finalist in Contessas 2014, a world renowned hair award competition and the most prestigious in Canada.
On November 10th, 2013, I will be competing for the top spot for the EXTENSION ARTIST OF THE YEAR category.
I successfully transformed boys with short hair into girls using Babe Hair Extensions. This was a challenging yet fun project, and as you can see from the before and after shots, showcased one of the biggest transformations you can make with hair extensions.
For a Calgarian, this is both a huge accomplishment and an amazing opportunity! I am excited to share this with Calgary and feel that our city is ready to see what the Extension World has to offer in amazing hair, great service, & affordability.
I have also been featured on an international website dedicated to stylists and their craft, Bangstyle.com – an image community for hair.
Maybe you’ve noticed the Mayor’s new do?
I wrote to the Mayor, telling him what a great job that he was doing and pleaded to him to let me make a donation to his campaign. He responded, agreeing to letting me update his look.
This Year’s Achievements
The Edges Creative Team and I single-handedly took on Calgary’s first Fashion week – YYC Fashion Week 2013. Since then, we have been working closely with Calgary Fashion.ca, one of the event sponsors, and their runway shows.
Edges also helped raise money for the Donnie Peters cut-a-thon, helped launch the Green Circle Project (recycling project specific to salons), and sponsored Gay Pride.
Edges and I are “making a difference”. It is not just our slogan, we walk the walk.
