BRUSH was formed in 2014 by hairdresser Jojo King and artist Hizze Fletcher-King.
Jojo King has always had a thing about cutting hair, travelling with her clippers and cutting anyone's hair who would let her. After an inspiring stint working in Australia with the WeirdSistas, an ethical + professional dreadlocking business, she decided to train to become a hairdresser. Jojo now has over 12 years salon experience and holds a City & Guilds level 3 Advanced Diploma in Cutting & Colouring. She completed her training at The Bomb and Forde Hair, before going solo in 2013. 'Hair By Jojo' established itself as a one-chair salon in an emporium of self-employed businesses within a tattoo parlour in Brighton in October 2013. During her time there Jojo built up a loyal clientelle due to her gender free price structure, consistent high standards, friendly manner and a reputation for delivering exactly what the client wants. Brush was formed 8 years ago and Jojo's business continues to grow. She prides herself on providing a professional service and a safe space for all.
