Bella Stylist Since August 2021, Licensed Since 2017

Jasmyn is an artist, through and through. In addition to hairstyling, she owns a  small fine art business painting landscapes, florals, and abstracts; she also dabbles in photography.

 

Jasmyn specializes in balayage and vivid coloring; she fell in love with hair while attending her high school's cosmetology program. What followed was a two year apprenticeship under owner/senior stylist Kristen Chandler, in which Jasmyn says she gained a "wealth of invaluable knowledge and education".
