Jerad Rushlow, Creative Director
Advanced Master Stylist/Owner
Aveda Purefessional Educator
Locations: Woodhaven & Wyandotte
Every spring & fall New York Fashion Week comes Downriver through the eyes and hands of Jerad Rushlow, Daybreak Salon’s Master Stylist and Owner. As a member of celebrity stylist Jon Reyman’s Fashion Week design team, Rushlow collaborates biannually in more than 30 fashion shows crafting innovative hairstyles to complement designers like Nicole Miller, Leanne Marshall, Nautica, Porsche and many more.
He brings that expertise home to Daybreak’s talented team of more than 30 stylists in weekly education to perfect technical skills and develop creative techniques like dry cutting and deep spectrum custom color that translate to custom looks for every Daybreak client.
But, being Michigan’s Fashion Week Stylist is not the only thing that sets Rushlow apart. He is a distinctively different small business owner with a vision to the future evidenced by Daybreak’s highest rankings among AVEDA salons in the Mid-America region. The restless Rushlow has his eye on number one and continues to push himself and his staff toward that goal. He was recently invited to become an AVEDA Purefessional, a rigorous training program that will lead him to be among the highest echelon of stylist educators within the world-wide AVEDA network.
Not bad for a kid from Monroe who never questioned his destiny to one day take over the day to day operation of his parents’ Southgate salon. With his sister, Jenee Osborne, Headway Salon rebranded to Daybreak and expanded from its original location to a Salon & Spa in Woodhaven in 2007. And due to burgeoning client demand, they opened a second Daybreak Salon & Spa in Wyandotte last fall to rave reviews.
Rushlow & Osborne, are continually seeking the latest education and technology to support their staff and serve their clientele.
“Jenee and I believe in caring for clients who have been with us since 1973 while courting new clients with today’s latest on-point trends.”
Rushlow is a consummate perfectionist, “Our client’s absolute satisfaction is our #1 goal. We are committed to giving our clients a distinctively different experience that exceeds their expectations, we do that through expertise and continuing education. We want our clients to know that they have come to the very best. We work very hard to set ourselves apart, in that way,” says Rushlow.
Evidently, it must be working. Daybreak has achieved numerous awards including Salon Today’s endorsement as a Top 200 salon in the United States and is a highly selected AVEDA Lifestyle Salon in Michigan and the only lifestyle location Downriver.
