Jessica (Office Manager)

I’m just a small town girl, living my best life in this big world. The hair industry was an unforeseen passion of mine that I never knew existed. I’ve had my fair share of struggles with my curly hair and Cher Behind the Chair has brought me success with my hair and my career. I have been a client of Cher Behind the Chair since the beginning and it has been exciting to witness the growth. I enjoy the art of cosmetology and seeing a vision come to life, as well as, watching a client’s face light up at the end of it. I am grateful for the chance to be a part of the team and look forward to the opportunities to come.
