As a child, Jake knew he was destined to become big. He was unaware of the path he was going to take, until his mom suggested hairdressing. So after he enrolled in hair school. Thus began his craving to learn more.
Working and educating for Redken, Sexy Hair Concepts and Revlon Style Masters, has created this unbelievable love for his craft. Co-owning Lunatic Fringe Salon in Sugarhouse Utah has made the love for education expand to heights he’d never thought he could reach. Educating on multiple levels, from classroom to stage has made sharing his passion intoxicating to his audience. He loves to share his passion for his art.
Besides educating and working behind the chair 4 days a week. He loves to shoot his work. Being published in Behind the Chair Magazine, Modern Salon, American Salon, Estetica, Hot by Hair’s How & RE Magazine. These publications only drive him to create and build his technical ability.
Creating is really what drives Jake. NAHA was a reason to create. Here’s the breakdown of his Nominations/Awards:
2006 NAHA Avant Garde Nominee
2011 NAHA Fashion Forward Nominee
2011 NAHA Avant Garde Winner
2012 NAHA Avant Garde Nominee
Jake Thompson lives, eats, and sleeps hairdressing. With that kind of passion he was asked to teach at the 2012 ISSE Long Beach show in the NAHA room. His class/presentation was called “Behind the Minds Eye”. Jake also got the opportunity to do Main Stage IBS Vegas with The Teals. The stage show was called “The Evolution of Avant Garde”. Next Jake will also get the opportunity to do ISSE Midwest main stage this coming Nov.
Jake is so grateful to have the opportunities that have come his way. He works very hard, and keeps pushing himself to the next level. That’s why joining a team and group of artist he’s truly respected since the beginning of his career would be the next level.

🤤... 👊💥 ... #btconeshot_cuttransformation18 #btconeshot_colortransformation18 by @jmalonehair ・・・ Before and After ✔️ She said she felt ‘Blah’ and needed a change, so a change is what she got! . * The More You Know 🌈🌈🌈 ... This is the kind of project that literally gets my heart ❤️pumping, that feel it in your guts and your toes kind of feeling. Every peek at the foils is like a drug and seeing the color change and get to that pale yellow literally makes my heart skip a beat. I was legit almost in tears when I was done with it. 😂 Plus, I know how BADLY she needed this change!! . . This wouldn’t have been possible without @redken flashlift and a little (a lot) of patience!! . CLIENTS TAKE NOTE: This WAS done in one session, but it was one long ⏱almost 8 hour session and she had virgin hair. Did you hear that?? Virgin hair and it still took 7.5 hours. Going from dark to light is VERY time consuming and VERY expensive💲💲 . . If you’re someone wanting to make a drastic change and go from dark to light you have to keep in mind your hair texture, hair color, hair history, and your budget. (Prepare to go broke💰) There’s also a responsibility with going blonde. 💁🏼‍♀️Your take home care is VERY important. If you’re my client I most likely won’t touch your hair with lightener again if you don’t use what I suggest for your hair. It’s not a sales pitch, it’s reality. Toner appointments are 🗝🗝 and keeping your pre-booked appointments. . . . . . #behindthechair #btcjmalonehair #btcredken #redkenready #oneshothairawards #transformationtuesday
