Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Jones.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I have always been obsessed with fashion, art, beauty, and design. I knew I wanted to be an artist and even looked into attending art school. The problem was I couldn’t really see an end game with art. I was really into sculpture. The dream was to make or build something and sell it for some ridiculous number. 2.3 million or so. Make a living making cool things that spark feeling in people. Unfortunately, I noticed being an artist could take a really long time. The term “starving artist” was very relative and stuck in my brain. Upon graduating high school something was just calling for me to go to cosmetology school. I originally enrolled wanting to become a makeup artist, but I got to cosmetology school and fell in love with hair. It combined all of the artistic aspects for me. Hair color became painting. Haircutting became sculpture. Hairstyling became fashion and design. My little studio has become an introspective look into myself and first initiative into building my life’s work and making my masterpiece.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Really just figuring out what I wanted in life whilst dealing with life things. I struggled with ego, anxiety, perfectionism, and impostor syndrome. I was a mom at a young age so I was trying to keep a lot together while working on my career and myself. I think it’s what made me stronger
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m a hairdresser that specializes in blonding, creative, and dimensional hair color. It’s the transformation process for me and what it really brings out in others. Coloring is a whole vibe and making people feel good about themselves is what I strive for. I think what sets me apart is that I listen and validate you as a customer and as a person and in return you trust me to use you as a human canvas.
Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
Never stop learning and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. They are discoveries that will only make you better. You are a business first so don’t take everything so personally. Believe in yourself because you got this!
