With 15 years experience in the hairdressing industry, Jason Cocking has opened the 2nd franchise in the Lisa Shepherd group, in London. The salon is the first in the South and long awaited by clients and press.
Jason originally joined the company seven years ago and became one of Lisa’s Art Directors, but his love of London was calling and he decided to move to the bright lights of the city and experience hairdressing down south, working in some of London’s top salons.
Four years on and at just 30, Jason has taken on the challenge of running his own Lisa Shepherd salon. “I love hairdressing, it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do, so when the opportunity arose to have my own salon, I jumped at the chance. We have a lot of happy clients who have been waiting for Lisa to open in London.”
Jason’s calm, unassuming manner, coupled with his creative cutting and colouring skills have made him a hit with celebrities, he’s styled the hair of Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Cat Deely, Zoe Ball, Melinda Messenger and Nigella Lawson and was the hair colourist on the recent Guy Ritchie film, Sherlock Holmes.
So it’s full speed ahead for Jason this year as he puts Lisa Shepherd London firmly on the map, and if you think he’s stopping to pause for breath, you’d be wrong, “Next Year my goal is to win London Hairdresser of the Year,” says Jason.
