“Founded in 1998 by Jola, Salon De Legge has become a leading color salon in Poland that employs a number of award-winning stylists and built on Jola’s foundation of international style and experience.”

Jola De Legge

Designation: Artistic Director

Jola De Legge graduated from the Gene, Juarez Hairdressing Academy in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. After that, she underwent extensive training from the top academies in the world, most notably:

  • Toni & Guy (U.S. and London)
  • Vidal Sassoon (Toronto, Canada)
  • Matrix (U.S. and Sweden)

Jola was awarded “Hairdresser of the Year” by Toni & Guy for best styling and makeup in the industry. She participated as well as organized, many hair and fashion shows, photo-shoots and symposiums. In addition, Jola has worked as a stylist for video-shoots, promoting young singers for Channel 1 TV in Poland. In 1997, Jola was the first Creative Director in launching Matrix, Poland; and a Platform Artist representing Goldwell at the Polish National Hair Show.

Jola’s passion for photography and make-up lead her to work as the Creative Director on a photo-shoot with Robert Linden, a Los Angeles based photographer whose work is found in publications such as Vogue and Elle; and with Ginger Boyle, a well-known and respected make-up artist. The photo-shoot was published in U.S. magazines such as: Modern Salon, Coiffure, QZ and others.

In 1998, Jola opened Salon De Legg in Opole, Poland. After establishing her salon, she returned to the U.S. and opened De Legge European Salon, in Ashville, North Carolina. After 8 successful years in business, Jola closed the U.S. salon due largely to her busy lifestyle and to better-focus on the growing needs of Salon De Legge in Poland. Jola continues to educate herself and her staff in Poland, working tirelessly on developing exceptional services for Salon De Legge clients. Jola spends her free time pursuing new and exciting business ventures and developing new style concepts for her salon staff.

In 2010 Jola introduced De Legge Signature line of hair care products.

Jola’s new and fascinating business venture is a unique salon in Pinellas Park, Florida! Unsurpassed quality and style is what sets this new salon apart from the rest.

Jola is an artist in hair! She has a keen ability to know intuitively what style will look fabulous on someone and she also has excellent skills to create that look. I highly recommend Jola to anyone who wants an incredible hair style that reflects who you are.

 

In addition to being great at her craft, Jola is a kind and thoughtful person with a great sense of humor. Highly recommended!
