It seems that Crystal was destined to be a hair stylist. With nearly all of crystal's seven sisters involved in various forms of styling (from food to fashion), making things look beautiful is practically a family tradition. In pursuit of that end, Crystal has spent a large part of her adult life doing fashion and hair in New York, Los Angeles, Hawaii, and Portland. Crystal draws on her extensive education in the styles she creates for her clients. Because of her persistent desire to refine her skills, she has supplemented her education with significant advanced training, including studies at Toni and Guy Academy and Bumble and Bumble in New York and L.A. Among her core philosophies is the notion that every aspect of life and, more specifically design, represents an opportunity to be improved upon. Crystal personifies the idea that one's personality and interests inevitably influence their craft. Her involvement in environmentalism and holistic health ground her styles with a natural aesthetic, offset perfectly by the rock and roll edge, borne from her insatiable immersion in Portland's music scene. However, it's her empathetic and intuitive nature that supports the collaboration of ideas between stylist and client, which she believes to be the most imperative prerequisite to good hair design.
Combining innovative and modern styles with classic precision, Jess covers all grounds.
Her training in advanced cutting, styling, and color comes from some of the most renowned educational institutions in New York and Philadelphia including Bumble & Bumble, Vidal Sassoon, Wella Color Studios, and Nick Arrojo. Her determination helped her finish third in the Internation Intercoiffure Nouveau competition for cut and color. "Creative, intuitive visionary" best sums up her work. Jess's care and skill shows not only in her immediate results, but also in how well your hair develops into the cut and color.
Her understanding of how hair works, it's shapes, patterns, and textures, helps her craft a uniquely perfect style for every client. Jess's fun-loving and attentive personality, versatility, and desire to help people love their hair makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
She loves travel and adventure in all forms whether it be trail riding motorcycles, camping on a mountain top, or drinking fine wine and shopping in Paris.
Jessica has been styling, cutting, and shaping people's hair for over a decade. With a background in sculpture, and an innate ability to express mood and personality through hair design, she creates looks that are perfectly coupled with her clients' vision and style.

She finds special pleasure in sculpting short cuts, creating gorgeous color, and styling hair for events, fashion shows and photo shoots. Her passion and commitment to the evolution of her craft is rooted in her extensive training with Bumble and Bumble, Toni and Guy, Howard McClaren, and Nick Arrojo. With this foundation and a dedication to continued education, Jessica has been teaching fellow stylists in San Francisco and Portland for the past 9 years. Outside the walls of Pinn, you can find Jessica exploring the wilds of Oregon with her family, wielding a torch in her jewelry studio, practicing yoga, and tending to her garden.
