Creative Director

At the age of 13, Jesse Peles began his career training under his father, William Peles, owner of two top salons in Johnstown PA.  His work has taken him from Los Angeles to New York with study at the most prestigious hair academies.

Jesse’s work can be seen in many international publications and has been featured on local as well as national television networks.  Jesse has also worked behind the scenes at New York Fashion week under Aveda for various designers.

As creative director of Peles Salons, Jesse oversees the development of his entire salon team.

His passion for his work is evident not only in the many magazines he’s featured in but also with each and every guest that sits in his chair.
