Currently NOT accepting new clients:


Thank you so much for your interest in my services. Unfortunately, at this time I am no longer accepting new clients as my schedule is filling for the remainder of the year. I take great pride in my work and would not like to spread myself too thin, and start offering less value to my current guests.

  @TheBalayageGuy  Jason Caldwell @ Salon Lofts


 Hello hello and welcome! Let me introduce myself, I'm Jason aka: The BALAYAGE GUY and in some circles “The Connoisseur of Color”.

 For over a decade & counting; I've honed my skills & obsession for creating beautiful looks that are customized perfectly for each of guest.I adore all forms of haircolor but my specialty & heart lay with balayage.

You may have heard this word “B WORD” recently as the “latest trend.” So you’d be surprised to learn that balayage, a French hair painting technique, has been around & thriving from Europe to Beverly Hills for decades. 

  It wasn’t until recently when American balayage was pioneered by a huge hearted, extraordinary talent in the beauty industry; Candy Shaw, creator and CEO of Sunlights Balayage a professional balayage education company.

 When I am not behind the chair I truly get my hair geek on! I’ve spent 3 years & counting zipping from salon to salon, hair shows & trade shows alike sharing Candy’s message to inspire and elevate stylists,  the love of Balayage, Sunlights and all things YELLOW as a Sunlights Balayage Artisan Educator.

 That sounds like a whole lotta hair huh? Well it is, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am so grateful to say I choose right. My passion is my craft; creating beautiful hair, having wonderful conversations, learning something from everyone and giving back to the wonderful industry that’s made my journey so fulfilling.

My first time appointment with Jason was so fun and I love my hair. Jason nailed it!! Best birthday gift ever. I'll be back.

I have been going to Jason for nearly 5 years and he is UNBELIEVABLY talented. I get compliments on my hair ALL the time and how beautiful the color is. When I came to Jason, my hair was a mess and what I thought to be unfixable after a very bad experience at another salon. Jason worked with me to get my hair back to my natural color and now we always play around with different balayages. My favorite thing about Jason is that I can come in with no idea of what I want, let him work his magic, and leave being envied by any and all who get to see my gorgeous new color! He makes it all look so natural :) Also, hes is hilarious and I love spending time with him every couple of months!

Two years ago, I was a walk in client. Jason asked what he could help me with, of course we all want the wonderful cut and color and to walk out looking like a super model and all our worries forgotten while getting pampered. Jason took the time to understand my lifestyle, what worked for me, and I did walk out with a wonderful cut and a fabulous color, and an enjoyable experience. I am still a loyal customer of Jason Cldwell, I still receive a wonderful cut and color every time, and I have gained a friend Melinda W

A friend of mine recommended JC to me. Since I have no clue on fashion... Jason has been a huge help getting me up to date on what is new and keeping me looking good. Not only is he a great stylist, but he really makes it fun. I look forward to going every month.

Jason has taken care of my hair for the better part of a decade now, and I couldn't imagine anyone else as my stylist! He is a true artist. Jason has a real gift for analyzing a client's needs by observing the whole picture - texture and thickness of their hair, the shape of their face, skin tone, and even if they wear glasses when he selects colors and creates a style. I searched for years for an easy short cut that looked styled and modern. Everyone I worked with had problems addressing the thickness and weight of my hair, and every cut ended up looking the same within a week - frustrating wasn't even the word! Then I met Jason, described what I was hoping for, and after studying me for a few minutes gave me exactly what I had been wanting. First time! I am always glad to make an appointment with Jason because I have complete confidence that he won't let me leave if I am not happy - and I am ALWAYS happy! Thank you, Jason :)

Jason Caldwell makes my hair beautiful! Yesterday I went "Out with my Do-it-yourself-OMG it's Bergundy" to fabulous Auburn with snappin' hot highlights! Thanks Jason!!

Jason did such an awesome job with my color and cut! I walked out of his salon feeling confident and beautiful. I immediately started getting compliments on my hair. Not only did he do an amazing job, but in the short time I've known him it felt like we were two old friends chatting up in salon and laughing. The time flew by, he has an amazing personality, not to mention his skills with hair. Thanks Jason, I will be coming back!!!

Saw Jason for the first time last night and was remarkably impressed not only with the outcome of my cut and color but by Jason himself. He has great confidence in his ability so I immediately trusted him. He is also warm and friendly and makes you feel special. I will recommend him to anyone who asks about my fabulous hair!!

Jason is wonderful ! He takes his time and really listens to what you are saying. He ask questions so there are no suprises at the end. He made my experience great adn would strongly recommend him to everyone. He also is great at eyebrows and corrected a mistake made by someone else. I could not have asked for anything more

have been coming to Jason for a few months now after no other hair stylist could get my color just the way that i wanted. He ROCKED it. I gave him permission to do what ever he wanted the next time and ive never had so many people ask me where i got my hair done at. Not only did he do a Fab job on my color but recently i went to a wedding and Jason did a great job on an updo for me. People were taking pictures for ideas for their big day. Thanks Jason,
