Owner, Certified Organic Colorist, Master Hair Artist, Tre Sol Universoul Healing Art Practitioner
Cherise Morello-Pons, creator of Jade Organic Salon has 30+ years in the beauty industry. She is happiest behind the chair interpreting today’s styles and color trends that best fit the lifestyles of her clients. As an award-winning hair artist, Cherise is a skilled and engaged Cosmetology educator. Often you can catch her teaching a class where her personality and flair are evident as she helps mold the artists of tomorrow.
The health concerns of Mia, Cherise's youngest child, inspired Cherise to question why customers were experiencing scalp irritation with the application of standard hair color products. Cherise realized these products were not (and still are not) regulated by the FDA. Cherise investigated the cause of the irritation and she researched products that were free of the irritants, and she created Jade Organic Salon - to provide a choice, to set a higher standard for hair color, to use a better, safer product, to be a good steward of the environment and avoid adding tainted rinse water from flowing into the water supply. . .

Francesca has a Bachelor Degree in Communication from Villanova University, Villanova, PA. After a 30 year career working in the business sector in administrative and project management roles with international corporations, small businesses, and non profit organizations came to a close, Francesca turned her interests into a second career in energy therapy.
