The Owner of the Bombshell Hair Lounge, Jess has been in the beauty industry since 2000. Jessica took her Hair training at Future Hair Training Centre, in Vancouver, and she says “it was an amazing experience from beginning to end.” She even continued working with the owner, Cynthia Skabar, after she graduated, as an Educator.
From Future Training Centre, she went on to chair retail, opened a small salon in her home, and then after that, opened the first Bombshell location in 2012.
Education is paramount to Jessica, and she is always attending different hair cutting and colouring courses. Curly hair is a specialty of Jess’s: she has long, thick, curly hair, and knows how challenging it can be to have it cut. She has taken LOTS of curly cutting classes! 🙂
You can book with Jessica at both the White Rock and Kitsilano locations.
Jessica is also trained in Makeup (including Photography, Wedding and Special Effects) and Aesthetics, both of which she pursued her training at Blanche MacDonald Centre, so you can book her for both hair and makeup for your special event.

I Love *SPARKLE* because...: it adds beauty to everything! All types of sparkle: the sun hitting the ocean, the stars at night. The sparkle in my son's eyes when he is happy.
Fave Treatment to Give a Client: If I have to be specific, I'd say I'm a colourist. It's amazing to me how you can change someone's appearance in two hours.
- I travelled to Thailand in 2006 and got a tattoo that was tapped in with bamboo.
- I've painted every place I've ever lived in.

Fave Treatment to Give a Client: Engaging my guest with a full service treatment from beginning to end. Nothing more satisfying than bringing a smile to a guest's face after a total hair transformation... especially when they truly believed their hair could never look that way!
- If I could, I'd be covered in tattoos & be a famous race car driver! (I still have time, don't I? ;) )
- I have a passion for riding motorcycles.

Fave Product to Give a Client: I love the Keune Curl Cream. It makes my curls soft and bouncy, yet frizz free, and the scent is amazing. I also love the semi-colours from Keune - so much shine and deep conditioning while bringing out the natural tones in the hair. Extreme rich colours and the scent is divine!
- I LOVE FOOD!!!
- I love scary movies!
