Jay DiTomaso

Senior Colourist + Stylist

Jay has been doing hair for over 19 years and is considered by many to be the best colourist they’ve ever worked with. After completing his education at Laurenzo’s School of Hair-Design, Jay joined Wizards salon on James St. South in Hamilton where he honed his craft for 10 years.

He holds a Colour Master certificate from L’Oreal in addition to an Affinage Master certificate. At The Corner Room Jay opted for Schwarzkopf as he believes their line has the best variety to produce the absolute best results. In addition to his salon work, Jay has also been an Affinage educator and worked with Kevin Murphy’s team in the past.

Jay is a true student of the craft who strives for perfection and to learn something new every day.
