At the base of the FAB family tree is Jennifer Allen, senior stylist and owner of FAB Hair & Aesthetics. The hair and beauty industry has been a part of Jennifer’s life for as long as she can remember. She literally grew up in the salon, as both her parents Marc and Charlotte were stylists and salon owners. Following in her parent’s footsteps, Jennifer attended and graduated from the Hairstyling program at St. Lawrence college in 1994. Shortly thereafter she started her FAB family at the same time as her actual family, opening the doors to her very own salon in 1996 when her daughter was just 6 months old. Seriously!? Who does that?
Jennifer has watched her original team of three grow into a professional, connected team of ten unique stylists. Jennifer believes that education is key to maintaining a cutting edge salon environment. To keep herself current she continues to take classes by industry leaders (Schwarzkopf: Advanced Balayage, Redken: Tailor Your Man; Cut and Know Why, to name a few) and draws professional inspiration and motivation from Sam Villa of Redken. Jennifer is also fostering the next generation of stylists by teaching part-time for the Hairstyling program at her alma mater, St. Lawrence College. Specializing in formal up-styles, colour and great length extensions, Jennifer has got you covered for those fancy, special occasions or just those regular days when you deserve to feel special!
It’s hard to believe this busy business woman has free time, but outside of the salon Jennifer loves to exercise, travel and spend time with her friends and family. Jennifer attributes her personal and professional success to her son, daughter, and husband who continue to support her dreams and aspirations.
