Jess got her start apprenticing in 2001 and is the owner of Davao Hair Studio alongside Luz. She has thick, curly hair and knows how to manipulate curls for her clients. She has worked backstage at many NY Fashion Week shows and has styled men and women’s hair for numerous photos shoots and runway shows. She dreamed of opening a salon so she could contribute to an environment where she and her employees would love coming to work and where they had a platform to learn, have fun and showcase their creativity.

Jess talks with us.

If you were a Bb. product, which one would you be? Grooming Creme, because it can groom the hair while allowing it some personality at the same time.Jessica

Hometown: Cumming, GA

Volunteer Work: I have such a soft spot for mistreated and misplaced animals, if I could rescue them all, I would! I also volunteer at my Church with K-5 aged children.

Favorite hair to do: Curls!

Why hair: As hairdressers, we have a unique opportunity to touch people’s lives, to make a difference. When someones says they have never felt beautiful until the haircut I gave them, when a client shares his/her story of heartbreak or triumph with me, or when we get to shape the hair that has grown back after chemotherapy–it’s what makes the long days worth it. Those moments, they are everything.
