Our very own Culture Fox, Jennifer, has been with the company as the doors opened back in 2011. Known as Jen within the Fox Family, she worked closely with Co-Founder Lorean to bring their assistants education and a path of growth in a supportive and loving environment. Jen’s inspiration for Education comes from her own mentors that showed her what it is to give back and share knowledge to our fellow hairdressers in training.
Names like Vidal, Bumble & Loreal drove Jen to share her love for teaching. By teaching each student as an individual, with patience and creativity her students have grown into talented & in demand stylists within the company.
Jen’s own creativity with her clients lie in curls, curls, curls!!!! As a long time colorist, many of her clients have been with her since before Fox & Jane’s doors opened. She has recently found re-inspiration in cutting as old trends have recycled into fresh new looks.
