With 25+ experience, I specialize in curly hair and have certifications in advanced Rezo, Ouidad, and Deva inspired haircutting techniques. I love personalizing my cuts for each curly client, helping them to embrace good frizz, big volume, whatever their curls will do. I love doing everything curly but also love bixies, bobs, pixies, and razor shags. I'm certified in Rezolights and love doing curl balayage techniques, coppers and natural looking colors. Perms are also a passion of mine. I’m Curl Cult and Arrojo American Wave certified. I grew up in the Pacific northwest. Love my dogs, like riding bikes and music!
Owner / Master Stylist
I’ve been with Halo for over a year and a half. My specialization is shaping, coloring and maintaining curly textured hair. When I’m not vertical behind the chair, I like to be horizontal laying down on my couch or bed.
To me beauty is diverse. Each and every client I serve everyday are different and that’s what makes them beautiful. I specialize in gender neutral textured hair, natural hair care, hair cutting, and fun creative coloring. I love nature, camping, the arts, and being a creative influence for others. I hope to aspire all of my clients to be their most beautiful self inside and out.
My name is J’Quaya but I go by Jay. I’m a Philadelphia native and my interest in textured hair started 13 years ago when I said no to chemicals and yes to embracing my natural hair texture. Ever since then I’ve been researching, practicing, and growing my knowledge on natural hair. I am currently continuing my education by completing cosmetology school and currently working as a junior stylist at Halo Curl Old City and I look forward to bringing the people of the world happy and healthy natural hair.

What People Are Saying
Halo Curl is a super cute spot, and is very close to the Market Frankford 2nd Street stop. It is clean, beautifully decorated, the chairs are super comfortable, and I waited less than 5 minutes from entering to cape on. The products used on my hair smelled amazing and were perfect for my texture and porosity. I have very sensitive skin and sense of smell, and nothing irritated me.
Kat cut my hair 3 days ago, and this was my first time getting a curly cut. Kat meticulously worked with my very thick hair and while maintaining my length. My hair was styled and diffused, and today is day 3 without doing a single thing in the morning (after sleeping with it in a pineapple / bonnet). I have not had to do a single thing in the morning!! My hair has never, in my 40 years of life, looked as healthy or moisturized, with such perfect curl definition. I have struggled with intense frizz and losing curl definition overnight constantly. I am excited to come back in a few months for another cut! Thank you so much.
