Hi I’m Jonny Wright (@jonnycosmo_ on Instagram)! I always hated school; I’d skip classes, rebel, and could never comprehend why I had to go to any class aside from art class. I wanted to be a painter and go to art school. Luckily, a friend saw my potential, and all but forced me to go to beauty school. I started vocational beauty school in 2008, got my license in 2010, graduated from Aveda in 2011, and apprenticed for a year.
After four years of education, I now work behind the chair and run my grandma Ruby’s salon (est. 1957). Hair color makes my heart sing, especially the balance of artistry and science. I’m pretty anxious and introverted; working in the beauty industry is the first time I’ve felt like I belonged. The impact and positive influence we have is why I do it. I’m here today because of J Ladner Education; by surrounding yourself with passionate, educated, hardworking, and heartfelt stylists in your area, you’ll grow together and blossom to a limitless potential.
