My Visit to Brush Salon

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Brush Salon in Long Branch, NJ. Creative Director, Jason DeSantis, kindly invited me to experience the salon’s services. It was a fun day of pampering and beautifying my locks.

Only a 40 minute drive from the parkway for me and I was at Brush. I was greeted by the friendly receptionist and Jason as soon as I arrived. The salon’s decor is a mix of industrial and vintage chic style. The colors are warm and inviting.


Jason explained to me who would be working on my color, cut and style. The two ladies, Jade and Jeanine then introduced themselves to me and began the process.

Jade, the colorist, explained the type of product she was using.  She told me the color would give me a nice shine and infuse healthy ingredients into my hair. I didn’t have to wait as long as I usually do for the color to set in. I sat for a few minutes and spoke a little more to Jason about the salon which he explained will be expanding in July. Brush Salon is committed to the relentless pursuit of creativity, style, and service. Client experience and establishing positive relationships is very important to Brush.

Next, I had to have my hair rinsed. The woman who washed my hair was also very friendly. She gave me a great head massage while washing my hair I must say! I also have to say I’m impressed that she managed not to get me wet aside from my hair. Every salon I have ever experienced manages to get either my face, neck- I have even had my back wet. Not a nice feeling. I also liked their turban technique. Instead of knotting the towel on your head, they fold it in a way that creates a little towel turban.

Everyone at Brush was very welcoming and friendly. I was offered refreshments plenty of times by the rest of the staff.

Last, Stylist Jeannine gave me a cut and style. She asked me which way I like to part my hair, if I was ok with the use of styling products and more. Both Jade and Jeannine talked to me about the products Brush uses made by Kerastase. Jeannine is expecting her first baby so we had lots to talk about (mommy stuff!). I was excited about having my hair cut by a pregnant woman. My mom always told me if a pregnant woman cuts your hair, it will grow!

The end result was great. My hair never looked so shiny and healthy!




Jason gave me a set of Kerastase to use at home. I can’t wait to try it!


I want to thank Brush Salon for such a nice experience. I am very happy with my hair color, cut and style. The staff was very kind and generous. I look forward to working with Brush Salon again.

If you are in the NJ area, I highly recommend this salon. Tell them JerseyFashionista sent you 🙂
