beauty from the inside out
I am an energetic and genuine artist. I have a passionate drive to create customized complete looks individualized for each and every client. With over 5 years of experience in advanced training and education specializing in color, cutting, styling, and extensions. I strive to educate myself on the latest hair and beauty trends. I love seeing an affirming smile on my client's face when they see their recreated look. It lets me know that they feel beautiful and confident about themselves. I also take the time to listen to each and everyone of my client's expectations. After exchanging ideas I than create a style that is best suitable for their personality and lifestyle. My ultimate goal is to maintain a great, healthy, and beautiful head of hair for every client. I truly believe the only way to deliver this look is by using only safe and sustainable products by Original & Mineral. I feel there is no great haircut without amazing color.

I have always had a great passion for art and color. I found my medium with hair. I love creating the perfect haircolor and haircut to enhance every clients' natural beauty. By carefully listening to your needs and lifestyle I am able to design looks specifically tailored to your texture, style, and daily routine. Whether I am formulating a perfectly balanced tone, seamlessly blending sunkissed highlights, or pushing the boundaries with more avant-garde looks, I am able to to create the perfect look that the guest can replicate at home. I enjoy making my guests feel AMAZING during and after EVERY visit with me!!
My desire to do hair and makeup started in my early childhood. I had an obsession with all things glamorous. My aunt (and glam inspiration) was a hairdresser for many decades. I have fond memories of her last salon before she retired. Following some Barbie doll massacres, I shelved the idea and concentrated on visual art and theatre before enslaving myself to a series of dead-end retail jobs. A few years later I decided to take the plunge and immerse myself in the beauty industry to build a career doing what I love. Best. Decision. Ever. I have a keen eye for detail and strive for perfectionism. I love doing hair-color, especially blondes with a friendly personality. Most human beings, cats, dogs and small furry animals are quite comfortable in my presence. >^o^<
Like most in this field I've had a life long love affair for hair. It started a very young age & a bad first haircut. After many years in the restaurant industry I decided to change my career and go to Beauty School. Best decision I could make. Understanding the fundamentals of hair gives me the freedom to tap into my artistic self. I love creating and catering to my clients hair needs. I have a passion for cutting, coloring, and the perfect bridal style. I'm always learning to perfect my skills. I enjoy building long lasting hair relationships. I'm lucky enough to love what I do and I get to do everyday. When I'm not behind the chair or on location for a wedding, I'm checking out a band, new restaurant or reading a great book.
I have always had a passion for the hair industry and a passion to make people feel good about themselves in general. Doing hair has always been fun for me and I realized, at a very early age, that I needed to make it my career. If I was going to be doing the same thing every day - I might as well love what I do!
I have very curly hair, and growing up it was difficult for me to find anyone who knew how to style my hair correctly. I took it upon myself to learn how to tame curls and I'd like to think my blow-outs, (on ANY hair type) are the bomb.com because of it :)
While pursuing my hair dreams I worked in a cancer center for almost 5 years as a patient service navigator. It was there I learned a lot about what is truly important about life and for this reason I absolutely fell in love with everything refleKTion salon stands for. Everyone is different and beauty is exuded from within. All I want to do is help bring that out in my clients and to provide an experience they won't forget. My main objective as a stylist is to really listen to my client, to provide a relaxed environment where they can come and be themselves and leave feeling refreshed and even more beautiful than when they walked in. When I am not behind the chair you can find me competing and performing bachata dancing locally and internationally.
With that being said, I look forward to meeting with you. Book your appointment with me and let's get the party started :)
As soon as you sit in Jen’s chair, you’ll feel the same “JENe sais quoi” she carries into work everyday with her. She has always thought outside the box and colored outside the lines.Willing to take on any challenge with patience, dedication, and enthusiasm - she formulates how to deliver your dream look beyond your expectations. You’ll rarely catch her with the same hair color twice or without a welcoming smile spread across on her face. Her personality matches the looks she strives to create: innovative, bohemian, and fearless. She believes your hair should match who you are, and is eager to have an in-depth consultation to get to know you and how to appropriately portray the refleKTion you’ve always wanted to see looking back at you: the most beautiful version of yourself. If Jen’s not behind the chair or has her eyes glued to “hairstagram”, you can find her cuddling with her sister’s cat, raving about the latest teatox she’s tried, or gettin’ down at a music festival.

For my entire life I have been fascinated by the world of art. From paintings, to sculptures... music to photography, I have always been drawn to the human form, and the beauty within it. When searching for a career that could combine my passion for creativity and love for making people smile, my boyfriend introduced me to the world of styling. After learning more about the salon life, and enrolling myself in beauty school, I quickly began immersing myself in all things hair. I am so happy to be a part of an industry that allows me to connect with people and teach them how to show off the best versions of themselves.
I graduated from Pivot Point Academy in 2016. Everyday I strive to build my confidence and soak in any education that I can. Growing up I was always inspired by anything that let me express my creativity. When introduced to the art of styling I fell in love with the beauty industry instantly. There are no limits to what you can do when it comes to being a stylist. There is always something new and exciting to learn about and it’s always been my passion to not only learn the insides and outs of being a stylist but being able to teach other stylists like myself as well one day. I am so grateful to be apart of a team that not only inspire each other but grow together. When I’m not behind the chair you can find me spending time with my beautiful baby girl, journaling, or catching a good movie. Looking forward to meeting you!
