Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, I came to the United States almost 10 years ago for a job in the Information Technology industry and for some reason...destiny brought me to the fabulous and wonderful world of the hair and beauty industry. I have been doing hair for about 5 years now and I just simply love what I do. I received my cosmetology education from Douglas J Aveda Institute and I have attended advance hair color and cutting classes in California as well as Chicago and New York. I love everything about hair from cutting, styling, coloring, hair extensions and doing bridal parties. I specialize in long, thick ethnic hair but I equally love doing short haircuts such as bobs, pixies as well as men’s cuts. I also specialize in Balayage, Ombre and Sombre color application techniques. Providing my clients the best and most relaxing experience is my utmost priority. It really is a blessing to have the ability to make a person feel beautiful inside and out.
Jennifer has been cutting my hair for about three years. I always jumped around to different salons/stylists until the day she randomly did my hair and it was the best haircut/style I'd ever had by far! (And I was growing a pixie out at the time). Once when I was out of town I let someone else cut it and I'll never make that mistake again. I drive from Detroit to A2 for haircuts now. 6 months ago I finally decided to do color again and Jennifer is really great at ombre/natural highlights without turning really dark hair orange!
Going to the hair salon for even just a quick trim has always been a nightmare for me before I came across Jennifer. I have really thick hair, and lots of it. Hair stylists typically have difficulty trimming it or even styling it. Whenever I asked for a trim, I end up with hair that's 6 inches shorter. . . not okay. Jennifer always know the perfect amount to take off and the perfect style to go with my personality. I refuse to let anyone else touch my hair. When I moved to Lansing, I drove to Ann Arbor. If I ever move outside of the state, it will be very difficult to find someone as trusting and skilled.
Jennifer LaVigne has been cutting and coloring my hair for a few years now. I never went to the same salon or stylist twice - until my Jennifer haircut. Now I wouldn't trust my hair with anyone else. She is the best! Perfect haircut every time, without exception. She gives the most fabulous scalp massages. She listens to your ideas while steering you in the best direction for your face shape and coloring. Somehow she makes my frizzy mess look gorgeous every time I leave her chair. She's sweet, gracious, and totally relatable. And she's great at assessing whether you're in the mood to chat or just need to get lost in a gossip mag. So grateful I randomly stumbled into that first appointment with her!
My stylist Jennifer LaVigne has been doing my hair and she does a fabulous job! She is a great colorist and Brazilian waxer. She also does an awesome blow out. Look for her . . . I assure you she will do a good job!
I decided I wanted to go blonde and needed to find a quality stylist who I would be comfortable with going back to regularly for maintenance . . . that's when I found Jennifer! Very professional and still the sweetest personality, lets you know what she's going to do before she does anything to your hair. The color came out AMAZING and she didn't cut too much of my hair off when she was styling it (which was a HUGE relief). The icing on the cake was at the end of it, I got THE BEST Blow Out I've ever gotten from anyone! The style lasted 3 days of beautiful, bouncy hair! Love, Love, Love Jennifer!

I've been getting my hair cut/styled by Jennifer for 2 - 2.5 years. I've stayed with Jennifer because of her consistent work as an excellent stylist and have always been very happy with the cuts/styles. Jennifer is always receptive to how I want my hair cut and styled. Sometimes I have ideas that aren't realistic for my type of hair and because of her personality she can honestly and constructively communicate her opinion as to why or why not my idea may or may not work. My working knowledge of these things is minimal so I am grateful for her guidance about what is realistic for my hair type/texture. The other great things about Jennifer are her experience and creativity. I am aware that she attends hair shows/schools to stay current with the new styles. This is evident because she often comes back with new/exciting things to try with my hair, which also speaks to her experience because she can always execute new styles. If you are looking for an experienced, skillful, and creative stylist, I highly recommend Jennifer LaVigne.
