My name is Julie Ann Jones. My friends call me Jewells. I was born and raised in Orem, Utah, just south of Salt Lake City. My love affair with hair started at a very young age, but my passion for hair and extensions in particular exploded when I got my first set of extensions at the age of 15.
After graduating from high school, I attended the Bon Losee Academy of Hair and Nails where I graduated top in my class. I followed that by getting my certification as a Master Hair Extensionist in hair braiding and weaving with Barraca Zuri (now Zuri & Co.)
After two years of intensive training, was hired as a stylist at David Douglas Salon and was rapidly promoted to manager, while also catering to my clients. I remained at David Douglas for two years before deciding to move to San Francisco to pursue broader opportunities
Once in San Francisco, I joined Treat Salon. Treat was inspiring, because my mentor, Natasha Warton, a National Senior Hair Cutting Director for Aveda, helped me to add structure to my creativity. It was while I was working at Treat that I achieved the distinction of Master Haircutter.
After 5 years of wonderful experience at Treat, I was presented with the opportunity to join a “cool” new salon on Union Street named Descend Salon. I have been at Descend for the past 7 years and have developed a wonderful clientele and some wonderful friendships.
In 2015, I attended classes to become certified as a Great Lengths stylist. I am now able to provide you with the best quality hair in the business using the gentlest method of extension application; the patented Ultrasonic Cold Fusion method developed exclusively by Great Lengths. My new great lengths clients and some of my regulars who have converted to Great Lengths have been thrilled with the results
My years of experience enable me to know what works, and more importantly, what doesn’t. I have built a stellar reputation for being equally skilled at cutting and coloring hair – a rarity in hair styling. My expertise in Natural Hair Extensions gives me great range in creativity and further qualifies me to really develop the look that makes my clients glow and bring out their inner rock star. Anyone can throw in extensions, but to have them look, feel and move with you naturally requires a special understanding of placement, weight and distribution to create a natural flow.
I am fearless when it comes to hair. My father was an architect and an artist, so it is only natural that I am also an artist at heart; I fell in love with the variety and the art of hair design. I know that I feel my best when I look my best, and I feel successful when I help others look their best.
- My passion is transforming the lives of my clients and helping them release their inner Rock Star.
- My genius is applying vision, my love for the art of hair design and my learned talent to create a style unique to each client that captures their personality and helps them radiate confidence.
- My expertise is being an acknowledged Master of the tools needed to pull it all together:
be it cut, color, extensions, feathers, up-dos or the healthy treatment of hair.
My customer’s needs are of the utmost importance and I am very committed to meeting those needs.
Communication is the key: I start by reviewing the condition of your hair, then we discuss how you want your hair to look and the environment that we are designing and together we will find the best solutions and strategies to achieving your desired look. Even more important than what happens when we are together is the ability for you to be able to recreate your hairstyle at home. I will educate you on how to maintain your new hair style; my goal is to give you the tools to make your everyday styling easier than you have ever experienced.
