Jay Morris Named VP of Living Proof's Salon Channel
Haircare company Living Proof has named industry beauty veteran Jay Morris as vice president and general manager of the company's Salon Channel. Morris has over 20 years experience in the beauty industry, holding senior-level positions at American Crew, Creative Nail Design, Alterna, and, most recently, Global Keratin/GKhair. Additionally, Morris has owned two private salons in Dallas, Texas as well as a successful professional beauty distributorship in Arkansas and Texas.
“Jay brings with him a really rich understanding of the salon world – both as someone who has worked for brands distributing in that channel and as a salon owner,” says Jill Beraud, Living Proof’s CEO. “With the announcement of Jennifer Aniston as co-owner of Living Proof, we’ve seen a tremendous amount of new interest from salons. With Jennifer’s long-time hairstylist Chris McMillan joining our powerhouse team of stylists, we’re taking things to the next level in the salon channel and Jay will help get us there."
