Hello! I’m Jake St. Claire. I have been cutting, coloring, and styling men’s and women’s hair for over 30 years. One of my earliest experiences was with Toni N Guy in London. There, I learned how to take a great basic cut, and make it into something more by cutting into the hair, not just trimming the edges. Next, I went on to work with Jeanne Braa and Robert Cromeans of Paul Mitchell, as well as learning how to chemically relax ethnic hair from the head of their Straightener Division. Eventually, I wound up in Chicago on Michigan Avenue. That was and education that would take my skills and put them to the test in one of the most competitive environments in this industry! I loved every minute of it.

I have now returned to Barrington and I currently work out of Barrington Exclusive Salon.
