Jackie LeTarte (Stylist)
Jackie LeTarte has been cutting, coloring, and makeover-ing hair for the last 15 years. Specializing in classic and up to the second scissor and razor cuts, color, highlights (including ombre), curls, keratin treatments, Brazilian blowouts, and corrective color and cuts.
Her haircut ideal is: an effortlessly chic cut that looks fantastic even with the most minimal styling, appropriate for the personality, and lifestyle of the recipient, and complementary to the texture of the hair. She aims to help women work with their natural texture; fine and curly, dead straight and coarse, curly and crazy thick- there is a perfect cut for everyone!
Her ideal color: does no damage to the hair, complements a great cut, as well as the recipient's skin tone, and is not high-maintenance. She loves getting over-highlighted new clients (that have the damage to prove it) back to a more natural, dimensional color, which results in less frequent salon visits and healthier hair.
Jackie has received training and education from Bumble and Bumble Academy in NYC, Schwartzkopf, Goldwell, and Redken.

Brenden Kuhn (Massage Therapist)
In 2007, Brenden was in a car accident that severely injured him and changed his life. Not wanting to mask the pain with muscle relaxers or painkillers that slow the healing process, he chose a more holistic approach of healing involving massage. It was during this rehabilitation process that the idea of becoming a massage therapist occurred. Three years later he attended the central Florida school of massage therapy and graduated that fall. Shortly after graduation he began working for a chiropractor that dealt primarily with people who were in car accidents. After a year of working with the chiropractor the opportunity arose to work at Halo where he now provides massages that are as relaxing as they are rehabilitative.
Jamey Lewis (Stylist)
Jamey Lewis began his career in the creative arts with a decade long career as a graphic designer. His background in design, and focus on structure and shape accompanied by his passion for music and fashion prepared him for his transition from graphic arts to hairstyling. "I've had a strong interest in hair and fashion since I was a kid. I remember buying the Clash's album because the guy on the cover had a cool Mohawk. Music continues to be a big source of inspiration for me." Jamey became a hairstylist in 2008 after doing graphic design for night clubs, record labels and independent boutiques. "I'm passionate about the craft of styling, cutting and coloring hair, and the effect the result has on the individual. When I'm starting a new client, I take into consideration what they're wearing, how they style their hair, their lifestyle, face shape and skin tone."
Jamey trained at Alchemy in Orlando, a Bumble&Bumble network salon for 3 ½ years. He studied under Nick Arrojo at the 4 week intensive Arrojo Boot Camp. He has additional training and experience working with the Wella Color Family, the Doves in Santa Monica and is So-Cap Certified for hair extensions.
