Who is Gypsy Hair Guru? Well that's me, Jessica Massmann. It's hard to explain oneself in text when you feel your soul covers vast amounts of the Universe, but I'm going to give it a shot.
So here I am a living breathing warrior goddess set out to beautify the world around me. I've been doing this hair thing for about fifteen years now, but what I really love is to make your heart shine. You see, getting your hair done is not just about your hair. It's a therapy, it's a confidence boost, it's a day of peace and pampering. It's taking care of yourself, its venting it all out to your hair guru, it's much more than hair.
I am real, and that I will always promise you. I will always be honest and authentic... I grew up here in Minnesota, raised in this tundra we call home makes youa bit of a shieldmaiden. Let's just say we are hardy stock. I have always had a love of art. I enjoy drawing and painting. I love grand architecture and museums. I am a right brained creative creature. I've painted murals, commission pieces, but most of all I paint for myself. I am a mother of two very awesome kids that love to have wild hair and definitely inherited their mothers gypsy spirit. They remind me every day that there are good people in this world and I get the pleasure of raising them. I am an adventurer. This is directly tied to my soul and love of nature. This is where I find peace. Lots of mini adventures hiking, camping, canoeing, ziplining, help keep me balanced and grounded. There is an energy when you are surrounded by trees and the sky and the earth below your feet, it reminds us we are connected. I also am a jiu jitsu girl. I sort of stumbled upon this part of myself without even knowing it ever existed. I was always more of a lover than a fighter, But finding martial arts was a godsend. This is where I learned it is better to die fighting than live a slave. It is also the best coping mechanism I've ever learned. We as women must empower ourselves. Save ourselves. Create ourselves. No one is coming to save you, but I will braid your hair.
I started Gypsy Hair Guru, because I love to travel and I love event hair. I also want to help and teach people. Need help with your blow out, just ask? Having a wedding out of town? I'll travel to you. Want to take part in a Pinup style photo shoot? I'll make it happen. Looking for a stylist that can create #hairrose or an eleven strand braid? That's me. Need a friend to listen? I got you. I want to make sure your hair and makeup are flawless and your special day goes smoothly. In studio I do it all, women's and men's haircuts. Colors, highlights, balayage, blowouts, waxing, relaxers and fashion colors. I do hair because I love it. Do you need someone to cut you children's hair? I have a great time with the kids and aim to give them a great experience. Are you looking for a keratin treatment or an updo? I love all the hairs. Staying educated about the industry is very important to me, but even more than that is experience. I'm known to practice on anyone who will let down their lush locks. Practice makes perfect. The thing I really want you to know about Gypsy Hair Guru is that you will be my priority. Your hair, makeup, style, your heart, soul and physical wellbeing. So come try out my hair magic and let's become friends. Theres so much more I haven't told you...
