CONFESSIONS OF A HAIRSTYLIST
“Confessions of a Hairstylist was created by Jenny Strebe, who was the education director with popular salon chain Toni & Guy for 6 years. She harnesses the transformative power of hair to create visually-arresting styles, from high fashion editorial to popular everyday looks for the modern muse. Fusing her talent for hairdressing and devotion to education, Jenny founded leading blog and YouTube channel, The Confessions of a Hairstylist, and carved herself a niche as the go-to for hair how-to’s. Now 4 years on, the site has over 6 million views on YouTube and a combined following of 600,000 on all social media outlets. She’s been featured in leading magazine titles including online, and named one of the top hair bloggers in America. ”
