Time to SHINE

Known for his witty social commentary and comedic prowess, LA-based hairstylist Jonathan Van Ness is a star of the stage and small screen, as well as a New York Times best-selling author and prolific podcaster. This month, as JVN Hair products launch exclusively at Space NK in the UK, its founder embarked on a mammoth and immersive press tour, taking him from Phil and Holly’s sofa on This Morning to the stage at the London Palladium – with store appearances and sightseeing detours to Buckingham Palace and Brighton Pier on the schedule, too.

Tearing up traditional beauty standards while spreading his joyful, life-affirming message of self-compassion,: “Beauty is something we do for ourselves, but we are already enough and I think, for so long, that part has been left out by brands. It’s not about how other people feel and react to you, it’s making a statement about investing time in yourself.”
