Like most of her achievements in life, Jean stumbled into the hair industry by accident and discovered her love for the art of hair along the way. She began working in the industry as a receptionist over a decade ago while studying fiction writing and geology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Because that is an odd scholarly combination with no obvious career suggestions, she spent a few desultory years chasing down excitement before settling on a Sassoon connection cosmetology program in Austin, TX. Since then she has apprenticed under some of the Front Range's top stylists and developed her own unique style of haircutting, favoring organic, lived-in shapes that compliment her clients' natural texture and personality. When she's not working on her craft, Jean competes locally as an amateur pool player and reads too much.
