Jessica Massmann is Gypsy Hair Guru. She’s a Glenwood native who spent more than a decade in sunny Florida. Upon relocating to Alexandria, Jessica looked to expand her talents beyond the typical cuts and colors that most hairstylists offer. She attended business classes, continuing education workshops and made the decision to focus on hair for weddings and events.
Jessica now owns Eccentric Hair Studio located in the Cedar Building in Alexandria and operates a chair at Wave Salon in uptown Minneapolis. In addition, she’s licensed and willing to travel, committed to upholding the same practice standards as you would find in her salon.
Gypsy Hair Guru : Hair & Makeup
Bridal party packages provide the best deal for hair and makeup, whether on location or in the salon. Gypsy Hair Guru offers a few suggestions when it comes to selecting your wedding stylist:
- Make sure your stylist is licensed and willing to travel. Certification for travel is required in MN.
- Choose a stylist who is educated in special and unique styles of both updos and downdos.
- Talk about versatility in styling. You don’t want everyone in your bridal party to have the same style.
- Select a look that will stand the test of time. You don’t want to look back at your wedding album with regrets about your hair or your makeup.
Gypsy Hair Guru : Fashion
Gypsy Hair Guru is an artist at heart and believes that each individual is a walking canvas. She was Head of Hair and Makeup for the Fashion Show during Fashion Week in Alexandria.
“We’re working to make a positive impact on the community on all levels: physical, mental and social. This fashion show breaks the stereotype of what a model needs to look like.” Jessica said, smiling. “No matter what you look like or where you come from, your unique beauty should shine.”
Fashion Week is hosted by Ripple MN with several events to participate in. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Ripple MN scholarship and community fund.
There are people that talk about doing things and people who make things happen. Gypsy Hair Guru is all in for a day of nonstop styling and is excited to bring an an edgy, artistic element to the Fashion Show.
