JERRITT PATTERSON

Owner | Stylist/Makeup Artist


Jerritt comes from a small town in Georgia, but he never let that define him. Eddie and Jerritt shared a vision to open a team-oriented, motivated salon, fueled by stylists who are passionate about education and are ever-evolving with the industry. Thus, Ed/it Salon was born. 


From sugaring services and lash extensions to makeup, your typical coloring services, and vivid color corrections, Jerritt does it all. If you're dreaming of changing your look, he's here to help you make your goal a reality!

EDDIE GARZA

Owner | Stylist/Makeup Artist


Eddie first found the love for hairdressing when he visited the salon with his mom to watch her get perms as a young boy in Fresno, CA. He grew up playing with anyone's hair that would let him and even melted a few Barbies' wigs trying to curl them! He enrolled in Bahner College of Hairstyling in June of 2000. After graduating in 2001, Eddie began as an apprentice at Tommy O's Rock & Roll Salon & Spa. He studied under Tom Ortiz and saw exactly where he wanted his career to go. From there, he pursued many educational opportunities to further his craft and knowledge of hairdressing. 


After moving to Chattanooga in 2005, he began working with an Aveda salon and continued pursuing his dreams. In 2007, he changed gears and began working in a Bumble & Bumble salon as a stylist and network educator. In 2014, Eddie became an educator with Keratin Complex and taught several smoothing and color classes regionally and nationally, furthering his own education in the process. 


In 2017, Eddie & Jerritt realized they wanted to open a salon where stylists could come to focus on education and thrive in a creative, fun, and professional atmosphere. And in November of 2017, Edit Salon was born. In December of 2017, he decided it was time to go a different route in education and accepted a position with Eufora International as a EuforaColor educator. 


Aside from education, you will find Eddie was behind the chair executing beautiful hair color and cuts, ranging from balayage and seductive brunettes to vivid unicorn hair, as well as extensions, upstyling, smoothing treatments, and body sugaring. Eddie is also an accomplished makeup artist and loves to paint a face for any occasion. 


He has 2 kiddos, Charlie and Jordis. 


He looks forward to helping you achieve your hair dreams!
