JD Salazar


I’m passionate about life, hair, creativity, and people. My goal is to be the best version of myself and to help others do the same through hair. I believe that being a great stylist is all about communication and building relationships with my clients. Our experience together is focused on bringing out the best version of you!


I have a well-rounded skill set that allows me to style both men’s and women’s hair. I specialize in color, highlighting, and balayage.


Originally from Dallas, I started my career at the Ogle Institute and then interned for two years at Salon Pompeo, working with some of the best stylists in Dallas. While at Salon Pompeo, I took classes taught by Wella Color Educators and received private training on updos, highlighting, and the latest balayage techniques.


Over the next five years, I experienced significant growth as the Lead Stylist at The House of Dear (formerly Dear Clark), a staple in Dallas. I also served as the lead color educator for interns and junior stylists.

Working at The House of Dear, I realized that being a stylist is more than just doing someone’s hair. It’s about helping clients express their aesthetic and how they want the world to see them. I love getting to know my clients before starting the hair process so we can build a relationship and achieve looks they might not have thought possible.


I’ve had the opportunity to style hair for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Show in Dallas for three years in a row and have also worked on movie premieres at South by Southwest in Austin, as well as weddings.
