My name is Jen Kerr and I’ve been a hairdresser in Austin for eight years. A San Diego native, I started my cosmetology career ten years ago at Paul Mitchell the School San Diego and developed my passion for all things hair, including my thirst for a comprehensive knowledge of how hair works and of course my love of Blonding. With a beginning in high end salons, I switched gears to obtain my Cosmetology Instructor license at Paul Mitchell the School Austin and taught fundamental cosmetology as well as practical salon application for two years.
While working at the school, I also dove into men’s cutting that lead me down a wonderful, several year path of barbering and salon management. Switching gears again, this time back into a high end platform, I began my career with local company SALON by milk + honey and enjoyed almost 4 years with them before venturing out on my own.
Although my trips home barely quench my thirst for the ocean, after eight years, Austin is home. I love our friendly, quirky Texas capitol and some of my favorite places are Aviary Wine & Kitchen and Central Standard! I’m a South Austiner for sure and you can often see me running all over town or walking my two miniature schnauzers, Sgt. Pepper and Sookie. Outside of hair, I’m an avid outdoors(wo)man and sun goddess, connoisseur of fine wines, frozen drinks and BBQ.
