From his early roots as a young London hairdresser, to his phenomenal success as both an artist and salon owner in Canada, Jason Kearns has shared his passion, talent and creative genius with the beauty industry. He currently co-owns the stylish, high-end Kearns-Davidson Hair & Skin Care salon in Toronto, and is devoted to his thriving business, as well as fashion-forward photography. Equally comfortable in the salon and studio, Jason acts as both hair artist and art director to create stunning photographic works that mesmerize audiences throughout the world.
With over 25 years experience in the business, Jason Kearns is still just as inspired and says: "I am passionate about great hair not about the trends that surround my industry. My strong foundations shaped me, sixties London, the era, its sensibilities, the graphics, the enthusiasm, the freedom to create. Evolution in hair is bigger then trends, the times we live in define a lot about hair, its continuous, ongoing and above all inspiring to me.
I trained under the brilliant Harold Leighton an icon in the British hair industry - he pushed me and allowed me to be part of the creative process from the beginning"
Jason says: "Discipline stems from belief and passion, commitment to what I do. I would not have the salon I have now, the huge cross section of clientele or the body of artistic work to look back on without discipline.
My clients often inspire me, the salon is an extension of how I tend to see hair, modern, clean lines, evolving as my clients evolve. The process of doing what I do is about finding a balance that does not date with time. I try to do the same within the salon. I am not loud with my work, it is not done with the purpose to shock, only to please the eye."
