Being one of Hollywood’s top celebrity stylists and traveling between NYC, LA and Paris – some would say Jen Atkin is living the life. Jen’s hairstyles are frequently covered by publications such as InStyle, Italian Vogue, ELLE and US Vogue and she’s worked with many famous photographers. She has a loyal following by celebrity clients and recently gained 7,000 new followers on Twitter in the span of 5 days.
This young talent did not become a success overnight; she started as a receptionist at a local salon in LA and worked her way up. Today, she has worked along side other popular stylists during fashion week and continued to work in top-notch salons. She’s mastered the skill of capturing old world beauty in the hairstyles of some of today’s most glamorous leading ladies (think Penelope Cruz, Emma Stone, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Cindy Crawford)—thanks in part to her vibrant resume. She was a key member of Madonna’s hair team on 2006’s Confessions tour; she’s been mentored by hair masters like Andy Lecompte, Guido and Danilo; and she’s made sure the locks of top models were catwalk-ready for designers like Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Chloe, and Alexander McQueen.
One of Jens dream projects would be doing hair for a music video directed by Paul Hunter starring Beyonce, J. Lo, Lady Gaga or Shania Twain.
