Jonathan Elkhouri began his career in hairstyling at the age of 18 as a shampoo technician and worked his way up to assistant. He studied under Antoine Chahine through an apprenticeship program and became a stylist after completing the apprenticeship program. Through client referrals, Jonathan’s popularity grew, so much that in 2005, he decided it was time to open his own salon.
Jonathan, a stylist to several Washington DC celebrities, is master color certified through Wella, having attended numerous courses at the Wella Studio in New York. Jonathan has also studied with Nick Arrojo of TLC’s What Not To Wear. He specializes in corrective color and enjoys transforming clients through color and precision cuts. He enjoys working with both the scissor and razor to achieve a wide range of styles from classic to conservative to trendy. Jonathan’s philosophy is that each hair style should be based on the client’s hair texture, features, and lifestyle. Through detailed analysis, getting to know the client, and consultation, Jonathan works up an individual style for each and every client.
Since having been trained through an internship program himself, Jonathan strongly believes in the power of teaching and training a new generation of stylists and therefore has put in place a top notch internship program at Salon Khouri, using hands on training as well
as scheduling in-salon classes for all stylists and interns.
