Hey guys! My name is Jennifer Whitaker. I am a 29 year old and I’m a Richmond, Virginia native. I am a stylist at Studio 9:13, located in Powhatan, Virginia. I have been licensed for almost 5 years, but have been playing with hair for many years.
My mother was a hairdresser and growing up in a salon I always was inspired to see how she would make other women feel so great on the outside, but even better, make them feel better on the inside. My Momma always said, “it doesn’t matter if you’re pretty on the exterior, if you have an ugly heart, it will show!”
See, as a Christian stylist, we have the power of the Holy Spirit within us to know what to say to help our clients from an internal place. Our clients come to us and pour their lives out to us. They not only are trusting us with their hair, they trust us with what should be the most guarded, most precious thing God has given us, and that’s our heart❤️ It’s so special to me to be able to hear the still, small voice of our Heavenly Father while working on a client, and to hear what we should pray over them. As a salon we lay hands on people daily and are in the Word. The laying of hands is both a symbolic and formal method of invoking the Holy Spirit or a spiritual blessing. The anointing on our lives can be transferred to your client. How awesome is that! Blessings can pour from you onto them!
To all my fellow hairdressers in our industry, keep loving Jesus, and loving people! You are making a difference in the world and may not even know it!
