Meet Trailblazer Jet Rhys

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jet Rhys.

Jet Rhys Salon was founded in 1992 by Jet and Rhys two former Vidal Sassoon hair specialists from New York. They have more than 25 years of experience working and teaching in Vidal Sassoon academies and salons, but are perhaps best known for their hip and modern approach to beauty and fashion. Prior to founding Jet Rhys Salon, the pair traveled on the Vidal Sassoon International Show Team teaching and inspiring hairdressers in London, Japan, Mexico, Australia, and Europe.

Located in San Diego, California, Jet Rhys Salon is an architectural masterpiece synonymous with superb hair design and technique. Each member of the Jet Rhys team is an expert in his or her field and has been personally trained by Jet and Rhys. Their ongoing education program ensures their team stays up to date with the hottest looks and trends from around the world. At Jet Rhys Salon, stylists strive to look beyond a clients’ bone structure and skin tone to find their real persona and create the perfect hairstyle. Jet always says, “Hair is in our DNA.”

Not only has Jet Rhys Salon styled hair for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, but have been featured in numerous fashion and beauty publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Allure and W Magazine. Jet and Rhys were also recently recognized by Elle magazine as one of the top salon teams in the United States.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
With any business, there will be some bumps and challenges. Moving from New York City to beautiful San Diego has been such a positive experience that afforded us the opportunity to open Jet Rhys Salon, which originated in Hillcrest, San Diego. We loved the neighborhood and the vibe of the location. After some time, we realized that the parking Hillcrest was a huge challenge for our clients. There were no parking lots available and the meters only allow two hours maximum to park.

Parking tickets were a buzz kill for us and our beautiful clients which I felt absolutely ruined the entire Jet Rhys experience. It was essential that we find another location that had ample parking and easy access to all freeways. We searched everywhere in San Diego and found our perfect space in Solana Beach. We couldn’t be happier.

We’d love to hear more about Jet Rhys Hair salon.

Which women have inspired you in your life?
At the age of six, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I loved going to my Gram’s Beauty Salon. I loved my Gram, I loved the smell of her salon, I would watch her work and make women feel and look beautiful. She loved her career, she loved her clients, she absolutely loved everything about hair! I would frequently say to her, “Gram, I am going to be just like you someday.”
