Owner and curly hair stylist, Jordan has held a strong passion for education over the years that include becoming certified in countless academy courses held by Goldwell, DevaCurl, and Surface. She has found a passion for her curly-hair clients and became one of the first Deva-Inspired Curl Specialist's in Rochester seven years back, the first DevaCurl Educators in Upstate New York, and the first Certified in NYS.
Her passion has led to her becoming Upstate New York's DevaCurl Educator where she teaches other stylists the art of curly-hair.
With her natural aptitude she uses her behind-the-scenes work with her network of photographers and artists to approach her client's hair as a visual work of art. She interprets the needs of each guest and creates a style that tells their unique story- be it simple, carefree, understated elegance, or rocker-chic. Her clients travel as far as Japan and England for their cut and colors.
Jordan's clients love her intuitive style, gentle but direct personality, and her ability to listen and cater their needs. Her passion and care for her staff comes first when building Mint.
