about Jen

what triggered you to go to cosmetology school?

I had a Barbie mannequin head growing up I would play with.  I would give it updo’s and then admire them for a week!  I also began giving myself crazy hairstyles as soon as I was old enough to brush my own hair and would spend an hour blow drying my hair to absolute perfection at 12 years old!  Then one day a friend of mine was enrolled in Cosmetology school through our highschool program and said it was fun!  So at 16 I started and never looked at back! I guess I was born with it in my blood!

what do you love about working at suite 115 salon? 

I love our family.  I love looking around and seeing our team laugh together and support each other.   It is my salon so I am biased, but I love our products.  I like that we offer a few different types of products and we carry a few different color lines.  This is great so we have something for everyone.

why do you love what you do?

Everyday is different.  One day I can do a full color change and extensions, the next I could have 8 men’s cuts in a row, and close my week with a wedding party of 8 or more formal styles.  I cross paths with so many different people my weeks can be really fun and entertaining.  Plus I get to visit with old friends and clients who have become friends.

life is too short to wake up with regrets. so love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t believe that everything happens for a reason.  If you get a chance take it.  If it changes your life let it.  Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it be worth it.  Dr.Suess
