About

I am a self-employed licensed cosmetologist. I work at Rain Salon, in a beautiful historic building in downtown Omaha. Rain is located just south of the Old Market on 10th Street, just far enough away that the on-street parking is not metered, but a 5 minute walk away from the restaurants, shops, and bars downtown.

I have been doing hair for 10+ years, and makeup for about 9. I have an obsession with vintage hairstyling; it's actually why I went to cosmetology school! I am lucky enough to partner with two different talented local pinup photographers, doing the hair and makeup for their photoshoot packages. It keeps my passion alive and helps me regularly diversify my work. The truth is, I just love to make people over! I couldn't ask for more satisfying work, whether it's a modern style or a vintage one.

At the salon, I offer haircuts, colors, updos, makeup, keratin hair straightening, and facial waxing. I am always happy to do both hair and makeup trials. I want you to feel confident that you will like your style and/or makeup on your big day. I suggest that you try to schedule your trial on a day that you have something else going on, so your fancy face/hair doesn't go to waste! Maybe even your engagement photos if you haven't already had them taken. If not, then it's a great excuse to go out to dinner afterward! For the big day itself, you can bring your wedding party to the salon, or I can travel to you. For larger parties, my coworkers at the salon will help to get you finished in a reasonable amount of time. Also, I am happy to travel outside of Omaha. Generally, I work within a 100-mile radius, but I do make exceptions.

Jen was fantastic!

I was in a tough spot without hair and makeup with a couple months until the wedding. I found Jen on here, we did a trial, and i knew she was it. Shes professional but fun. Travelled to my house to do all my girls hair and makeup. She was always on time, ready, and a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend her to any bride!

My experience with Jen on my wedding day was top notch!!! She made me look and feel great!

I can鈥檛 say enough great things about Jen! There is not anything that she can鈥檛 do when it comes to hair and makeup. She did my hair and makeup as well as my mom鈥檚 hair and makeup. She made both of us look and feel our best! We both received numerous comments on how good our hair and makeup looked throughout the night. Jen is extremely professional, friendly, and amazingly talented. I would HIGHLY recommend her to brides in the Omaha area!

Super breezy

Working with Jen was very relaxed and worry free. She listened to my vision and made sure she followed through exactly. She was also very accessible, no waiting to hear back or feelings of bothering her when I wanted to touch base. I enjoyed working with her and would do it all over again in an instant.
