About Jessica Gonsalves
Jessica Gonsalves is Philadelphia’s leading colorist in balayage, a technique that paints color into the hair to produce a sun-kissed, natural glow. Originally a Jersey girl, Jess completed her cutting training at Vidal Sassoon over seven years ago. After working for L’Oréal Professionnel the last several years, Jess recently became a L’Oréal Professionnel national artist (one of just a handful in the world.) She now tours the country teaching classes on innovative color technique every month. As a SOHO Academy partner, she is regularly invited to teach onstage at nationally acclaimed hair conventions.
In addition, Jessica has been trained professionally in the art of makeup by Mac Cosmetics and Nars. She is a senior stylist and makeup artist at Architeqt Salon and Gallery, where you can find her making up brides for their special day, rescuing damaged hair with healthy color correction, or dry cutting fresh, unique styles for each client.
