Justin Gray

   Justin (he/him) has been becoming a stylist his whole life. “I remember sitting behind other kids at school and staring at the back of their heads, wondering how they chose their particular hair,” he explains. A self-described pop culture fanatic, he confesses to sometimes “missing the storyline in films because I am so focused on the hairstyles!” 

“I know it’s a stylist cliche, but something inside of me lights up when I see people feel  their best.” Justin especially loves how hair allows him to connect with and care for people he hasn’t met before. His infectious warmth and gentle courtesy make for easeful and joyous collaboration. Justin is as excited about dramatic chops as he is for small, thoughtful adjustments that make your natural hair texture both more manageable and fun. He enjoys talking with clients about how their hair can match their visions for themselves, and is always eager to share styling tips.
