Meet our amazing new stylist at Parlor Brooklyn, Jesse Blodgett!

Jesse Blodgett…  Haircutting Artist

Hairdressing since 2003, Joined Parlor in 2013

Jesse is an artist in the truest sense of the word.  His clients frequently comment that they really enjoyed the experience of watching Jesse perform their haircut, because of his theatrical nature. This quality has gained him quite a following of regular clientele, and he continues to add to that cache every time he performs a service.  After fine tuning his skills for ten years in some of New York City’s finest salons, he joined the Parlor team in 2013 ready to add his own style and flair.

Jesse is incredibly passionate about AVEDA, as he was trained at the AVEDA Institute in Soho, and has continued to pursue his knowledge of the brand throughout his career. In addition to his beautifully artistic haircuts, he is an extraordinary barber, and a spectacular hair colorist. Jesse’s work was recently featured on MTV’s All Access, and throughout his career he has had the pleasure of working on a variety of celebrity clients. 

Although he really enjoys showcasing his work on a national platform, he thrives on providing high end service to all of his clients here in the salon. He loves having the opportunity to make someone’s day with a fabulous new look, and to pass on his extensive knowledge of hair tips that can be taken home and used daily.

MTV All Access Filming at Parlor!!!

We are really excited to announce that Parlor will be featured on MTV's All Access on Friday, August 23 at 4:30! 

The segment was designed as a lead up to the VMA's(airing Sunday evening on MTV), and we were given the task of doing a Miley Cyrus "super fan" makeover. The lovely Madeline arrived at the salon really excited to transition into her favorite pop star, and our stylists Melinda Marki and Jesse Blodgett were happy to oblige.  They cut and colored her long, dark blond hair, and gave her a super fun, punk rock Miley look. 

Since Miley Cyrus has a great pompadour finish, our stylists used Aveda products with a bit of firm hold. The favorites from the day were Aveda Control Paste and Aveda Air Control Hairspray. We've included some pictures of us behind the scenes at the filming, and we hope you will tune in at to see the final result!
