My name is Jonquil or Dreadful Jonquil. I am a
niche hair designer located in Western Washington's Snoqualmie Valley.
I have been licensed since 1993 and actively industry oriented since 1991. I began training at Huron Valley Beauty Academy in Ann Arbor Mi, during my junior year of high school. I worked on U of M's campus in downtown Ann Arbor at a shop called "Campus Barber and Beauty salon" till I made the big move to Seattle in 1997. I have studied advanced service methods for extensions, dreadlocks, and hair architecture under ALin Leslie at Dollylocks salon near Tampa Fla. and Melinda Hurt at Doctored Locks in Spokane Wa. * BOTH exquisite teachers!*
I specialize in combining form with function in hair design. Although I am particularly inspired by myth, magic, and macabre, I am also very deft at developing amazing hair that can perform in an office setting as well as a festival or theatric event. I strive to create hair that is as much of an eyeful as it is natural feeling and easy to care for.
My current professional focus includes natural dreadlocks, creation and maintenance AND hand tied hair extension application of both natural and synthetic hair. I design comfortably placed, smooth seamless dreadlocks and believe wholeheartedly in my creation and maintenance protocols. I offer Micro pinchbraid application extensions to enhance integrity and interest of ones natural hair...as well as dramatic new length over all..... I have spent many years cultivating an awareness to fine details, precision, mobility and comfort and recognizing an individual's unique ideas about themselves and the aethetic they wish to convey.I am a hair design architect with a rich and diverse background and I have endless imagination when it comes to creating hair that compliments faeries, vampires, and aliens to name a few scenarios.
I enjoy a full and loyal client base, I must be selective of new clients. I work by appointment only out of my private hair studio in North Bend Wa., about a half hour east of Seattle center.
