While being one of the newest members of the Fresh Salon crew, Jazmin has an amazing work ethic and enthusiasm to provide great service that exudes from her daily.

You can find her jamming to Reggaetón, writing and laughing with clients and the Fresh crew.
While her life motto is “It is what it is” you will not see that expressed in her cutting and styling techniques. She is a team player, efficient and kind. She genuinely wants those in her chair to feel confident, fresh and excited to take their hair for a walk around the block, because it feels beautiful and right. She loves talking about her family and spends most of her time away from Fresh hanging out with them. With that encompassing passion for perfection and kindness you will be in very capable hands with Makayla. We are so excited she has started her styling journey under our wings!

Once you get to know Cris, her quiet demeanor sheds and you will find yourself laughing at her funny, thoughtful musings. Also, she has a way with men’s, modern shags and fringe.
Jose is one of the OG colorists at Fresh. He has been at Fresh for 11 years. Jose may not believe the saying, blondes or redheads have more fun, but he loves creating these hues for his clients. He strives to maintain a relaxing space in his chair and can tell whether the client enjoys chatting or quiet time. If Jose wasn’t such a great colorist, he would own a food truck since he loves cooking and baking. Thankfully, he is happy doing what he loves.
Carsen is our favorite cat loving punk rocker! Carsen’s personality is exuberant and their eclectic tastes are found not only in their conversations but also in their interest in fashion coloring.
