My name is Jennelle Harris, and I believe when you look your best, you feel your best. And when you feel your best? You can be your best.
I’ve long been a lover of beautiful things, far before I found my passion for the transformative power of permanent makeup. Beauty, in my opinion, comes in many forms: The majestic sunsets I would enjoy as a child growing up in the Bay Area, the exhilaration of snowboarding on the slopes of Tahoe, or the animals and wildlife I would nurture back to health during my day to day adventures. The beauty I find in this world goes so far beyond the physical, and each feeds my soul.
My love for helping people feel their best and most confident through makeup and permanent cosmetic procedures started during my early years as an actress in San Francisco. While the challenge of acting and modeling was a lot of fun, I found myself drawn to the hair and makeup trailers, assisting my castmates with their looks and helping them prepare for their scenes. I loved how the right hair and makeup was able to give them the confidence to go into their work with passion and intention.
From that moment on, I was hooked.
I enrolled and graduated from beauty school with my diploma in cosmetology, after that I continued with serval advanced classes at Kryolan in San Francisco and never looked back. With every client, I found a renewed sense of purpose and passion, reliving the moments on set when I was able to harness the power of makeup to unleash the maximum confidence for my castmates.
As I progressed in my career, I found new barriers and boundaries that my clients were experiencing. While makeup was able to help rebuild confidence for my clients in the moment, many were experiencing skin conditions, health situations, or genetic circumstances that were holding them back from living their best life. Committed to helping my clients beyond basic makeup application and driving the future of beauty forward, I began teaching the next generation of esthetician and cosmetologists at Cinta Avede Institute in San Francisco, the number one beauty college on the West Coast, while continuing my work at Cinta Salon. My passion for ever advancing skincare procedures and products, cutting-edge technology and ingredients, and serving the under served beauty community allowed me to grow as a Licensed Cosmetologist and Esthetician, and I have been proudly helping clients look, feel, and be their best for over fourteen beautiful years.
From permanent makeup application, to bridal makeup, to skincare support, and beyond, I have been blessed with a natural eye for aesthetic beauty and a heart that helps me unlock the beauty within. My work as an SMP technician has helped hundreds of clients regain the pep in their step, rediscover their inner strength, and reignite their confidence – and to me, that is the most beautiful thing in the entire world.
My name is Jennelle Harris, and I believe in beauty. Let me make you a believer, too.
