Leading Hair Stylist Jon Patrick to Appear on PBS' "Real Simple"

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 8, 2007 -- Jon Patrick, celebrity hair stylist and colorist, will be appearing on a segment in episode 206 of "Real Simple Television" on PBS, airing Feb 10, at 3 pm in Los Angeles, Calif. and on Feb. 17, at 3 pm in New York City. For times the show will air in other areas, visit Patrick, whose expertise in the world of hair color has established him as the "go to guy" for everything from highlights to color corrections, will share tips and advice on how to navigate your way through the overwhelming aisle of hair care products and find exactly the right combination for your hair type. As Patrick says, "It really can be overwhelming to buy a bottle of shampoo with all the choices available today. What I've tried to do in this segment is to make consumers understand that it's important to be strategic and make sure that your cleanser, conditioner, styling aid and finish are all working together to address your specific hair needs. It's about not being distracted by all the pretty packages. I suppose it's not unlike making sure to eat before going grocery shopping."

With more than 20 years of experience, Patrick has become known for his artistic eye and specific use of color. After years of success with the eponymous Jon Patrick Unlimited salon on Chicago's exclusive Rush Street, Patrick is now bi-coastal, shuttling between his New York City base and Los Angeles, where he spends at least one week a month servicing his clientele there. Celebrities Patrick has worked with include Elizabeth Banks, Shawn King, Alana Stewart, Morgan Fairchild, Rebecca DeMornay, Reiko Aylesworth, Susie Castillo, and many others. He also has international clients from as far away as London, Buenos Aires, and Istanbul.

Dubbed by Allure magazine as, "One of the most original hair colorists in the country," Patrick has achieved national press exposure in many other major magazines as well, including InStyle, Shape, Fashion Wire Daily, and People. He has gained notoriety within the professional community too and is a member of the national Jon Frieda Hair Advisory Council. Patrick has styled for top TV shows, including "Oprah" (on a makeover show), "Ambush MakeOver," "Life & Style," "Insider," "Entertainment Tonight," "ABC Extreme MakeOver," "Soap Talk," "Real Simple TV," and MTV. He currently writes his own column as a hair expert/stylist/colorist for Salon City.
