Jason Bonner is a world class Barber and Educator based in St. Augustine, FL. He is the owner and lead artist for his brand, “Handsome Jack the Barber,” and though he is a Barber by trade, he is regarded as an expert in both cut and color trends for both males and females respectively. He currently carries a broad clientele at his shop in Florida where he develops concepts in cut and color as a direct industry influencer and educator that are designed specifically to be accomplished only through the use of Hattori Hanzo Shears. As a former national educator for a beauty brand that focused on modern individualized texture of all genders and nationalities, Jason shares his extensive knowledge on meeting specific individual goals for each client by challenging the traditional “rules” and logic of mass produced, over generalized looks. His goal is to engage his peers in thought provoking, technical yet entertaining discussions that are relevant for all beauty professionals regardless of experience or expertise with the realization that, artistry is best expressed through the understanding and eemployment of formal foundations, because “we can’t break the rules, if we don’t even know what they are!
