All those other 5-star reviews you see here: ditto. What they all said totally corresponds to my experience.
Lots of people can cut hair, but few of them are sculptors whose medium is hair. Jo is one of those, and she's very, very good at what she does (actually, her creative artistry extends to other media too) -- plus she also happens to be one of the most hospitable, fun, and straightforward individuals anyone could ever wish to meet.
Bottom line: If you have the ability (prices aren't cheap, but they're worth it) and would like to treat yourself (or someone else you know and love) to a hairstyle that's unique to you and bursting with swagger, you've got to see Jo. You'll be glad you did!"

Can't say enough good things about Jo at Ted Isaacs in Sellwood. She changed my life!"
I came into Jo's salon with very long black hair. Having been confused and nervous about a transformation, I let go of it all and entrusted Jo with her creative freedom that was guided by the way my hair parted. This was my first dry haircut and it makes so much sense! My transformation is magical, and I feel better about my haircut everyday. Thanks to Jo for serving into the many ways in which I could work my hair hereon. She also helped guide me through ways I can maintain my hair post transformation. All of this wealth of knowledge and hip design out of generosity! I hope more people can reap the joy of the creative/edgy looks Jo offers. I highly recommend going in not entirely knowing what you want, only to be happily surprised at what an experienced, always-willing-to-do-what-has-never-been-done-before hairstylist can do! You also get an amazing collection of photos. I am updating my LinkedIn right away, haha. This is a craft, indeed."
I have never loved my hair so much. It has looked cute every day even after days and days in bed recovering from surgery. Having cute hair has been so good for my spirit- when I felt crummy, I would just say, "but look at your great hair!" Now I am feeling good and starting to go out I am loving it more!! Jo rules. She knows how to get the most out of what you’ve got."
Jo is a miracle worker!!! She understands how to cut curly hair like no one else I have ever found! My brothers always told me I was having a bad hair LIFE, and at 40, I was starting to believe them, having received one bad haircut after another. But ever since I found Jo, I have nothing but good hair days!!!! Go see her, you won't regret it."
I have known Jojo now for 14 years .... exceptional human being first and foremost... which is followed by exceptional hairstylist... everyone in Jo’s Eye is a piece of art and deserves their own style... no 2 looks are alike! I will miss her doing my hair ... but I will especially miss her... she is one of a kind ... and She will not disappoint.. Oregon just lucked out. ( and did I mention I’m a fellow stylist and you all know how picky we are)"
I've been getting my hair cut for 46 years and have finally found a true master of their craft. I have long curly hair and it can be extremely difficult to manage in our environment. After having a consultation, I felt Jo had truly understood my concerns and after the haircut, I looked in the mirror and knew immediately that this was a very special cut. She took out volume where needed and seemed to have custom tailored each individual strain of curls. My hair is much easier to manage and looks the best it has ever looked. Jo's experience and love for her craft means she cares and has passion for her guest/clients concerns. This is why she is the best stylist I have ever had.
Thank you, Jo! "
WOW! I don't even know where to start..so, I've never had a Ouidad haircut ever in my life..so did my research and came across this salon and I am beyond glad and happy that I did.
First, Jo my hairstylist is AMAZING! She is so sweet, knowledgeable, professional and very detailed.. she explained everything and even gave me tips and tricks that I could do at home..
Thank you so much Jo.. you have made me love my curls even more."
I don't want to be dramatic but meeting Jo was nothing short of life changing for me! I recommend Jo to everyone I meet. I struggled with learning how to tame my curls and Jo helped me feel so much more secure in the way my hair falls- and how that’s unique and special to me! She’s dedicated to teaching and informing and she makes her clients feel so comfortable in her care!"
I don’t really post many selfies but today that will change. Today I’m in my most authentic place with not a drop of makeup on my face and a hair cut that has truly changed my life for the better !
When I met with @haircraft_by_jo yesterday, she provided something more than just a cut, she gave me the confidence in my natural hair that society had oppressed all of my life by telling us that straight flawless hair is what we SHOULD have. So thank you Jo for helping me start this new chapter of my journey with your positive energy and newly found love for my curls."

I was randomly scheduled with Jo in 2014 as a walk-in... little did I know that it would be the very first haircut that I actually LOVED! Needless to say, I have been religiously going to Jo ever since. She is the only hairstylist that I trust with coloring and cuts. Jo is always friendly, welcoming, and attentive to the needs/comfort of her clients. Her hospitality is something I've never experienced with any other stylist!"
My experience with Jo was amazing. As soon as I walked in, Jo greeted me and introduced herself. She took me to her chair and listened to me as I discussed the issues with my hair. (so patient) Jo had some great ideas. She suggested starting the haircut with the dry cut and finished it off with the Ouidad cut. I felt one hundred percent comfortable sitting in her chair and letting her do her thing. Once she finished my haircut, she talked about the different styling products as she diffused and styled my hair. It was actually the first time I had a haircut and style and went about my entire day without redoing my hair. She was awesome! I just made an appointment for color. Can't wait."
There is a real difference when I have my hair cut by Jo. Sometimes, I'm on the road and need to grab a hair cut... and that is all it is... But, when I go to Jo my hair looks its best. After each hair cut by Jo, I receive the most complements. When someone else has to cut, not much to say. This pattern has been repeating itself for 20+ years. So, if you want to look your best, go to Jo."
Jo has been my stylist for years and I'd be lost without her! I've had many stylists over the years....Jo is a keeper. She understands my hair, how to cut it so that the style suit my sometimes frizzy, thick hair. And the color, oh the color is fabulous. I receive so many compliments on both color and style! Jo knows her craft!!"
I had a great experience. Jo was so friendly and very informative. She also explained everything she was doing I felt so comfortable. Thank Jo for a great experience."
I have been coming to Jo for years to have my wavy hair cut and colored. She is a genius with curly hair. I also really appreciate that she uses holistic products. I color my hair red and Jo has a knack for finding the perfect shade of red that looks totally natural. I always get tons of compliments on my hair color after a visit to Jo."
I absolutely loved going to Jo! It was my first time and I was nervous because I have unruly curly hair that most stylists either don't know what to do with or don't do anything dynamic with. Jo was absolutely fantastic! We talked about what I wanted and even though I hadn't had a clear idea, Jo immediately had some suggestions. Honestly it was the best haircut I've ever had, I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great curly hair stylist!!"
I found Jo searching on Yelp for curly hair salons. I trusted my fellow Yelpers and they did not let me down. I walked in and was greeted right away. When I sat in Jo's chair, I explained to her that I wanted highlights on my naturally curly hair. I also told her I hadn't put bleach in my hair in over a year, because I didn't want to damage it. She was very honest and told me if she gave me the highlight color I desired, it would compromise my curl and make it somewhat limp. She gave me some suggestions to get close to my desired color, without comprising my curls and causing damage. I was so happy with my results. She gave me a beautiful color and partial highlight. She also gave me an Olaplex treatment and styled my curls to perfection. We talked about curls the entire time and she gave me amazing tips (and a couple of Ouidad samples too!). I will definitely be back for my next cut and color touch up.
I can't recommend her enough, it was a great experience and my hair loved it!"
First time here and will definitely return! Jo was amazing! Very friendly, informative and did an awesome job cutting and styling my unruly curly hair. She taught me how to style and maintain my hair. The salon overall is very welcoming. Definitely recommend coming here and seeing Jo if you need a haircut!"
Recently relocated to Florida. I have curly /wavy hair. I was concerned about finding the right stylist. All the reviews on Jo were spot on. She listens to your concerns, gives you advise on products on how to use them, and most importantly, the best haircut I've had."
A friend recommended Jo and then I did my own research on her and found some really great reviews, so I thought why not. My hair is very curly and has always been a struggle. I got the dry curly hair cut and I couldn't be happier. My hair looks healthy, it has a great shape and I am loving it!. One of my best haircuts ever! On top of giving a great cut, Jo is very sweet and personable. Thanks, Jo!!"
