Licensed Cosmetologist, Wedding and Event Stylist, Educator
Born and raised in Sonoma County, Jessica “Jessie” Johannesen has been a licensed cosmetologist since 2001 from The Redwood Empire Beauty College, but her experience goes way beyond a certificate.
Developing a passion for beauty and style early in life, Jessie always helped family and friends look their best for special occasions. In high school, she was the go-to-girl for getting her friends glamorous for prom. During a semester abroad in the Netherlands, Jessie was finding herself doing all the hair and makeup for her roommates before heading out for a night on the town. After finding inspiration overseas admiring the high-fashion in Rome and Paris, Jessie knew home is where the heart is and returned to Northern California to jumpstart her career and reputation as a professional stylist.
With training by top brands under her belt including Kerastase, Redkin, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics, Dermalogica, Yonka Paris, Goldwell, Unite and Bumble and Bumble in New York City, Jessie has always taken every opportunity to outshine the rest. Jessie is also a licensed Extension Specialist with Hairdreams Extensions and joined a team of stylists (JS Makeup Artistry) becoming the lead stylist for the San Francisco State Fashion Show leading up to one of her weddings being featured in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.
Jessie could not ask for a better place to grow, love and perfect her talent in cosmetology and is thankful for her golden Northern California hills and diverse community drawing some of the most spectacular weddings and events she has ever been a part of.
