Salon Serene

These are testimonials from when I had a salon in Calgary.


"I love the relaxed atmosphere at Flow. I always felt like I had to get dressed up to get my hair cut at a big salon, which seemed counter intuitive to being pampered with a shampoo and haircut. Jay not only provides a friendly, comfortable setting for his clients, but does a fantastic job of cutting. I have had some of my best haircuts in years since switching to Flow! Thanks, Jay!”

It's quite possible that I've been Jay's client the longest. From Ginger Group beginnings to Scenarios, Angles and quiet residential settings, I have remained a loyal client and friend. The reason is simple. Visiting Jay is a unique experience. With Jay you can listen to relaxing music, engage in thoughtful conversation and envelop yourself in calm tranquility. Whether it's a stylish cut or colour, Jay's hair dressing skills are superior.  He researches products to ensure the best effect on his clients and the environment. Who could ask for more?

Jay has been cutting my hair for more than 20 years! Need I say more?! Cozy salon, great conversation, amazing art displays and cool music are added bonuses. Yes I have tried other salons(I live out of town) , but Jay is the only one who 'knows' my hair...highly recommend him!

Jay is a master of his craft. He has been cutting my hair for about 30 years, and I have no plans to change. He always gives me a natural, perfectly balanced cut that’s easy to manage and looks good for many weeks. He's a thoughtful, creative person with an easygoing style, and pretty good taste in music. I look forward to my next appointment.

Jay has been my one-an-only hair guy for some years now. Since my first visit, I wouldn't dream of trusting my hair to anyone else. He asks the right questions, listens carefully, makes the right suggestions, intuits the hair's needs gently teaches the hair's owners...not unlike Cesar, you might refer to him as the Hair Whisperer.

I have benefitted from Jay's considerable expertise both  while living in Nelson and since moving to Calgary- the better part of twenty years. Whether sitting in the sun while my colour "cured" listening to Jay play his djembe in Nelson or in his Calgary home studio surrounded by his art- having Jay be my hair stylist has always meant added value, great cut and colour skill, interesting conversation and good music.  He has now added hilarious and informative newsletters! Totally worth the drive from my home in Okotoks- I highly recommend him!

I look great because of the great colouring and care I get from Jay.  The home location is comfortable, no strip malls and no traffic but centrally located. It is a relaxing visit that delivers great hair!!
