Joshua "Mr J Ladner"
I love coaching fellow team members and my time at the color bar! My day wouldn't be complete without my PM round brushes and PM Nuero DRY. I am inspired by attention to detail from Vince Ladner, the team for wanting to be a part of the Join the Hair Journey brand, and the guests that walk through the door everyday. Without them we are nothing. Obviously, my favorite place downtown is the salon and the location, but I love supporting other small businesses. Lily's Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants and I love going to the Neon to catch the latest movies. I am addicted to quotes and my favorite always changes. Right now my favorite quote is "Make sure everyone in the boat is rowing and not drilling holes."
I am inspired by guests who aren't afraid to be bold. I love the Oregon District! Fun shops and restaurants make it a great place to hang out.
I love to do make overs, including cutting, coloring, and eyebrow shaping. I get inspired by everything from great movies and TV to nature and my fellow teammates. My favorite place downtown is our patio garden. I love to garden and people watch. My favorite quote is by Anne Frank, "We all live with the object of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same."
I love having new guests in my chair. The feeling that I get when I create new styles for people I just met makes me so invigorated and reassures me that I chose the right career. Everything inspires me, from people, to plants, even from buildings, to food. Inspiration can come in many different forms, you just have to look beyond what you see, and see the art around your everyday life. My favorite place in downtown Dayton would obviously be here at Salon J Ladner & Spa. I love that I get to express myself everyday, meet new people, create art, and most of all, I get to change lives one swipe of a color brush or the slice of a shear. My favorite quote is, "Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." -Albert Einstein
I love giving massages to guests to improve their relaxation and make them feel better. What inspires me is when I have a guest that tells me how much better they feel after they have had a massage with me. I love everything in the Oregon District. I just love that old style mixed with new. "Live each day like it's your last."
I love doing men's cuts! My parents were my biggest inspiration. Blind Bob's is my favorite restaurant downtown because their food is amazing and the atmosphere is so much fun. "Always be yourself, unless you can be Beyonce. Always be Beyonce."
I love doing hair and nails! I am inspired by my guests because without them I am nothing. I love being in downtown Dayton, and especially enjoy eating and shopping alon Fifth Street. "The best preparation for tomorrow is to do your best today!"
