About mj

MJ holds the titles of Stylist and Director of Training with Blonde Faith Salon. He has always been creative and before cosmetology had a successful career in graphic design in the industries of print, television, and non-profit. Desiring to be part of a creative team in the beauty and wellness industry, MJ made a leap of faith, trusted his resiliency and ability to succeed and made a change, earning his licensure in cosmetology.

 MJ believes continuing education for professionals is paramount and this is one reason why in addition to being a Stylist at Blonde Faith Salon, MJ is leading our Apprentice Program. Our apprentice program has existed since our opening in 2013 and keeps growing, getting better and busier including weekly education classes for our aspiring stylists. We have a fantastic group of apprentices and we know they are lucky to be under the direction of MJ working with our long held traditions of training and talent building. 

 His passion for the industry and for his clients comes through in everything he does. His professionalism, work ethic, and excitement about continuing our pursuit of excellence is a perfect match for us and we are proud to have him as part of our team.

 With his clients MJ loves creating natural dimensional hair colors such as fiery copper reds, deep, rich brunettes or warm, sandy blondes, but enjoys creating fun pastel pinks, peaches, yellows, and blues. In his free time you can bet he is enjoying nature, photography, cooking up something new in the kitchen, or cozied up reading a book with his dog at his side and cat probably sitting on his book. 

You can follow him on Instagram (@officiallymj) to stay up to date with all of his beautiful work and entertaining hair and service-related videos.
