Whether it’s coloring, cutting or styling, her heart is behind every service, process and customer wish. It all began for Jessica over 20 years ago at the Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational High School. During school she was very dedicated and hard-working; so much so that her talents and ambitions exceeded well beyond her years.
