The inspiration for the circus hair pieces are from jessica’s winning collection back in 2009 for the mirror awards, no one has ever seen them in person, and Having the opportunity to showcase them in such an amazing event like Shine is the perfect place to do it!
Cheri wicks and Jessica Kurtz will be styling five models and teaming up to put together a circus collection that will be one to remember

My name is Jessica I like to be called Jess! I wanted to be a hairdresser from the time I was six cutting and styling my dolls hair. I started my hairstylist journey at sixteen working part time at a local hair salon. Later I got the opportunity to be part of the CTC program where I was able to study hairdressing at VIU for credits in grade 12. I graduated with high honors and perfect attendance. I've been professionally doing hair for three years now and I'm very excited to be part of Port Place Hair Spa.

I so excited to collaborate with this team of artists. I am a 23 yr veteran in the beauty industry. Ethics was my first love then adding makeup. hair and lashes and brows. 16yrs of my life have been proudly working for MAC cosmetics. With their mantra "all ages, all races all sexes" it seems so fitting for this SHINE celebration of multiculturalism inclusivity and acceptance. We will be working on models creating beautiful clown inspired fashion makeup in the circus scene, working along side with Jessica Churcher Best.
