Toni Gary

Stylist / Makeup Artist / Creative Colorist


Toni is a second-generation stylist who grew up in the salon as a young child. She started working in the industry at 17 years old as a part-time salon coordinator for Kent Jacob and later obtained her Makeup Artistry license in 2014. In 2016, Toni went through her apprenticeship with the Louisiana Barber Board to become a stylist. Being mentored by our lead stylists and attending a plethora of classes and hair shows, she emerged as skilled, passionate stylist who brings her own unique vision to each client. One of Toni’s strengths is creative color, and she has a natural eye for envisioning personalized looks for her guests. She also enjoys creating looks that range from very formal to fun Halloween makeup.

Toni’s versatility makes her a valuable member of the Kent Jacob team. She holds useful knowledge and experience in every aspect of the salon: front desk, inventory, and customer relations, as well as hair cutting, coloring, and styling. She takes advantage of being able to put herself in any position where she is needed. Doing so, Toni assists her teammates and keeps order as she runs a successful salon alongside her mother, Stacey Jacob.

Toni loves nothing more than to empower the women she serves in her chair and in the salon by watching their spirits brighten when they see their final outcome!
