NEWPORT – For three years Jon Somes has brought his creative style to Newport, offering hair styling, basic cuts, and skin care. Now, he's offering something more – his own, specialized line of products.
Somes moved to San Francisco from the east coast years ago to study his craft. He then traveled to Paris for a time to apprentice with master cutters.
Returning to the United States, Somes moved to Taos, New Mexico, and picked up a clientele that include actors, authors, and film industry professionals. A return to the east coast led Somes to Newport, where he decided to fulfill one of his ambitions: to open his own line of beauty products for hair and skin.
“The right cut is about enhancing the bone structure and shape of a person's face,” states Somes. “Your hair and face are a combination; they complement each other.”
An interest in developing his own product line came as a result of working with shampoos and conditioners for years. “I started to learn more about the ingredients in these products and decided I wanted to create my own product,” said Somes.
