Jen Powell; Owner/Lead Artist
I introduced on-location beauty services to the Youngstown area 7 years ago. I got the idea from when I worked for a free lance hair and makeup company in Las Vegas. I loved the idea of a Bride and her friends/family getting ready at her home, her parent's home or even in the hotel on her wedding day. Having everyone together in one place without having to travel to one or multiple locations for beauty services was appealing to me. The group eating breakfast, serving drinks and hanging out all while being pampered just seemed like the ultimate experience. So that's what we created.
In those 7 years I have put together a solid team of talented, professional and inspired artists. My business, Sin Pretty Beauty, has been voted "Best of Weddings" winner 5 times and was entered into the "Best of Weddings Hall of Fame" by the knot.
A little bit of my backgound:
I was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio. I attended and graduated from the Casal Aveda Institute in 2005 and I have a Managing Cosmetology License in the states of Ohio, Nevada and California.
I lived in Las Vegas and worked as a Hair Stylist at the Bellagio Hotel. I was a Colorist/Stylist in the departmentalized Bellagio Salon, where I was trained in Hair Extensions, Keratin Smoothing Treatment, Martin Parson's Up Styling and Airbrush Makeup. There I styled hair for countless Brides, Bridesmaids, Mothers of the Bride and Groom, New Year's Eve party goers, Performers, Miss USA title holders and Celebrities (Star Jones, Jennifer Tilly and Wayne Gretzky to name a few).
In addition to working at the Bellagio, I worked as Key Hair Stylist for a Las Vegas Hair and Make-Up agency. and styled hair for performer Aubrey O'Day as she starred in Planet Hollywood's "Peep Show".
In 2009, I created my own Hair Extension Line, made of top quality Indian Remy Real human hair. I designed my "Sin Pretty Clip-In Hair Extensions" that every women can apply on their own. They provide you with the thickest, longest, most natural looking hair that can be achieved with temporary Hair Extensions. Also, I specialize in a "Lock Extension Method" which is an Individual Strand-by-Strand Hair Extension Method that allows women to wear undetectable Hair Extensions for as long as 3-4 months without any heat, bonding, braiding or unnecessary tension on the hair.
Sin Pretty Hair Extensions has been on the cover of Las Vegas Magazine, Las Vegas Seven Magazine, as well as advertising for Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile Shops. Sin Pretty is the leading distributor of Pageant Hair Extensions. Some of her clients have been of Miss Nevada and Miss Nevada Teen USA, Miss Illinois USA, Miss Maryland and Miss Maryland Teen USA, Miss Delaware USA, Miss New Jersey USA, Pageant Coach Valerie Hayes, and many many more.
