Johnathan is a Hair Color Guru trusted by his clients to deliver perfection. He is committed to no more bad hair days.
"We're emotional beings — strong, venerable, authentic — told what to look like, projected onto. Avatars and photoshopped images delude us into unrealistic concepts about how we should look. I am passionate to help my clients discover what truly fits them so that their radiance and beauty shine through. My gift — beautiful hair, it's very simple. Hair that is cared for, protected, restored, and nourished. I provide solutions for scorched hair. Extreme fashion hair color is playful, textured and that takes a lot of upkeep. Natural hair, delicately colored, requires 3 to 6 visits a year. It's easy to maintain and very low maintenance. Keeping the grays at bay requires the most upkeep. Staying on top of haircare at home is essential. Beauty is an inside job, where at CURE, the possibilities are limitless." ~Johnathan
Johnathan also works with The Eductor Quantum biofeedback technology training to enhance wellness, creativity and beauty.
