Thank you for looking at my profile. My name is Jeffre Howenstine. Ever since I began my Hairdressing career in 1978 I have loved helping others find a new view of themselves. Hair is a fabric which can be changed in so many different ways. The geometry of Hair cutting  is fascinating when you consider the head is a circle and hair is just many lines in relationship to that circle. The science of color offers us an endless array of options to enhance, brighten, add depth and drama to any hairstyle. Even concealing or blending away gray changes one's look instantly. Now many people are embracing their Chrome in very imaginative ways. Color even adds texture to hair enhancing body and fullness. Finally the Art of texture comes to play. Harnessing the modalities of hair cutting, color and sometimes chemical enhancement to create a total look. Working through the process of creating that special look for each guest in my chair is one of the great joys of my profession. Finally showing guest's the various styling options to take that look from practical to fantasy is great fun. Every visit showing my guests that come to the Salon something just a little new and different. and teaching them how to recreate it at home themselves.

 Education is certainly the foundation of any career. I began here in Canton Ohio at National Beauty College. Once I acquired my Cosmetology license. I went on to study under many talented hair designers under the Glemby International name. Richard Cooley, Neil Krause to name a few. I have attended the Roux hair color training center and Labs in Jacksonville Florida. Martin Parsons in Toronto Canada. Paul Mitchell Boot Camp. Wella hair color intensive training. Clairol seminars. Matrix as far back as the late Arnold Miller. Hanzo-Hattori Hair-cutting. I also have had the pleasure of shaping my skills under the keen eye of Tabatha Coffy both long ago when she was an educator with Joico and now Matrix. I have attended many seminars under the Redken brand and have enjoyed the tutelage of Beth Minardi. Those are some highlights of my educational background. Each year I attend at least 4 seminars or  Hair Academys. The list is simply to long to mention. I have recently attended the Deva Curl Academy in Soho New York city and I have achieved a level 2 advanced stylist rating. I will be returning to the Academy again this spring to focus my study on the various curly hair types and how best to enhance them. Adding the world of "Curly Girls" to my repertoire has been an amazing journey. 

I stated earlier that I began my career here in Canton Ohio with the Glemby Salons located at the Higbee Co. I went on to Cleveland with the Higbee Company to become the Manager and style director of the 6th floor Salon Downtown. While living in Cleveland I had the opportunity to work with many fashion greats Shannon Rogers, Jerry Sliverman  Albert Nipon,Anne Klein and Bill Blass to name a few doing the models hair for fashion shows on the 10th floor luncheons and trunk shows at various suburban stores. I also had the pleasure of attending too celebrities at some the the Cleveland Gala's. Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent England. What fun it was too pin her diamond and pearl Tiara in her hair. Lucy Arnez Jr. and Helen Hayes were also among the count. While working behind the chair on the 6th floor,  managing the salon and attending to fashion shows related to the Higbee Co. and Kent State. I also had the opportunity to present to The Virginia Marti School of Fashion Design. consult and do seminars for Dorian Ley Modeling agency, David Lee and the Cleo Modeling Agency. After returning to Canton in 1990 I have enjoyed working behind the chair, taking care of the guests who come to see me at the various salons around Canton. Headliners Design Team, Salon Suites and Salon Mystique. I am now enjoying my new home at Salon Lofts. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment. Thank you again for checking me out.
