Jake B
As a young adult, I have struggled to find passion in my work. Since I started doing hair, I have been nothing but driven to perfect my craft! Being a local family we had always gone to James Alan growing up, so it was a pretty easy decision on where I wanted to work after beauty school. I really enjoy short cuts (from buzzed to bob), fashion colors, and balayage. Check out my work on Instagram @barnardthebarber

I have a passion for hair and making people feel like their best self once they leave my chair. I love what I do and can’t believe I get to do hair as my career and better yet – at James Alan Salon. My favorite techniques are blonding in foils and balayage, creating either natural dimension or bright and fun.

I started coming to this salon as a client and was truly impressed with the service received and the connections made. Now, this has been one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had. My time spent at James Alan is only made better when I get to see clients feeling their best self at the end of their appointments because I know how they feel.

Upon joining the team I was welcomed so quickly! The community built at James Alan has been unlike anything I’ve experienced before. I’ve been in the Shoreline Community all my life and it feels great to contribute! Outside of work, my passions are theater and writing. I’m always looking for ways to learn and grow.
