Featured Hair Stylist: Jenny Bell

"Take every opportunity possible. Practice your craft."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. Jenny Bell has been styling hair professionally since 2004. She has had many opportunities to work with top industry professionals on many creative projects. This passion and ambition has placed Jenny in multiple finalist positions in numerous national competitions nearly every year in the past decade. As well as working behind the chair and on competitive photo shoots, Jenny finds inspiration in pursuing editorial work on her free time and has been published nearly a dozen times so far. Jenny puts 100% into everything she does and is always looking forward for new, innovative techniques and ideas. What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? I would like to do more editorial work since I love being on set. I could see myself partnering with a product line and working as a platform artist. How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? I am approachable, friendly and pretty patient with my clients and do my very best to please everyone. I do struggle with communicating vocally since I am a visual person so I always bring the iPad out to confirm the look that my client is going for. If you had to do it over again, what would you change? I try to live with no regrets but maybe I would set goals sooner in life. I work well with lists, I keep an everchanging "to do list" as well as short and long term goals which I reassess quarterly. Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? I would have you say GOD as He is ultimately the One in charge! How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? Very very important! I try to go to as many as I can and I find that I take something away from every course and every creative opportunity that I am exposed to. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? Make sure you are working for and with people who teach you something everyday either about yourself or your craft. Take every opportunity possible. Practice your craft.
