About Jen makeup artist and hairstylist in Chicago

I am a professional, licensed, and experienced makeup artist and hairstylist in Chicago and Lake Geneva, WI.

I am a skilled makeup artist and hairstylist in Chicagoland and Southern Wisconsin. Hire me for weddings, film, runway, editorial, and commercial media.

What I believe…

– I believe in the saying “do what you love and the money will follow”. I LOVE being an artist and I love providing a service that makes others feel good.

– Technical ability comes from practice and continuous education.

– Style comes from analysis of pop culture throughout history.

– Originality is the fusion of what others have done before you with new qualities.

– I believe in presenting myself and my business professionally.

When compared with all others, I want your experience with me to be exceptional. In the end, the reward is the smile on my client’s face after I have finished my work. I take a lot of pride in my craft.

HOW I WORK…

100% RESPONSIVE COMMUNICATION

Communication is the most important aspect of a successful working relationship. Throw your ideas at me! I have an open mind and I view challenges as opportunities!

positive review  I had a root touch up and trim done. Jennifer was fantastic, professional and knew exactly what I wanted to achieve as I am growing my hair out. I had to bring my two year old (moody, potty training) daughter to the appointment and Jennifer made it so relaxing and not stressful. Has won over my business and I will recommend her to anyone/everyone. I wish she fit into my purse. She is so great!

Jennifer was FANTASTIC! I always get so nervous being in the military and having to hop from place to place and find a new hair stylist. I got so lucky with finding Jennifer! She knew exactly how to keep my blonde highlights natural and bright!
