As soon as Jason introduced himself to me at the Cobella hair salon in Kensington, his wealth of experience and professionalism oozed out. I was straight away comfortable to be in his very capable hands and even though he graciously talked me through the colours I could go for, I had no qualms in telling him I trusted him explicitly - and I am so glad I did because right now I am loving my hair!

Jason Collier is a hairstylist to the stars, he has an impressive client list which has included Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria, Laura Whitmore and Sienna Miller.  In 2017 he was named London's Best Colourist in the London Beauty Awards, and in 2018 he was named Best Stylist in the Marie Claire Hair Awards 2018. For Jason, becoming a hairstylist was his calling, his mum was a hairdresser and he remembers her styling his nan's hair in the kitchen every weekend. Then at 14, he started at a salon back home in Cardiff before heading to Toni & Guy where he did his basic training. When he was just 17 he moved to London and started with Cobella - after that his career went from strength to strength. His work has allowed him to tour the globe demonstrating incredible hair looks and working with some incredible brands. However luckily for us London ladies he is back in the UK.

Jason works out of a couple of salons in London (Cobella in Kensington and Kitch which is in Angel, north London) but manages his own diary. I felt rather privileged that he had found the time to cut and colour my hair - which was looking rather sad after two weeks in the sun. Not only had my previous colour been bleached out but my roots (which are now very grey around my hairline) were on display loud and proud. 

As Jason put on my colour he chatted comfortably about the next chapter of his career, having returned from working in Tokyo. It was clear why he was so successful, he had a real passion for the hairdressing industry and was constantly evolving his part in it. I was inspired by his enthusiasm.  After taking off my colour Jason gave my hair a trim, cutting it perfectly straight - just the way I like it and blow dried it with added volume. It was glossy and fabulous and I loved it.  Having my hair done with Jason, was so different to walking in a top named salon and sitting down with their top stylist - he had a real air of professionalism and even though he didn’t showoff his wealth of experience and celebrity clients - he didn’t need to, because the results of my colour and cut said it all. 

I am lucky enough to experience lots of different salons in and around London, but right now I have found someone I would like to stay with for many years to come.
