I had the opportunity to meet Jackie when she was apprenticing at Texture Hair Salon in Ottawa. She has the soul of an artist with one of the most fascinating and exhausting lives of anyone I know.
Her years of experience in the beauty industry, hair salons, on sets and backstage at New York and Paris fashion week have made her a hair, make-up and skincare guru.
You either create something and you keep it a secret and you die with it, or you can benefit the craft.

Here are some former Q&A’s from her Instagram page.
Do you prefer cream of powder blushes?
I do love a cream blush when I want that natural just woke up color, but a powder blush will give you more “pop” because they tend to have more pigment. I am obsessed with IT Cosmetics and this bronze, blush and glow palette! Easy to take with you and I even use it on my eyes.
Are there products out there that prevent hair loss?
Here are a few products I have witnessed results for hair loss/prevention (men and women)!
Nioxin Cleanser 1, and it smells like Junior Mints so that’s a plus!
Minoxidil (only FDA approved over the counter medication for hair loss).
Olly Undeniable Beauty Vitamins
Is La Mer worth it? I need a good moisturizer.
I could not love Weleda Skin Food moisturizer and Embryolisse Lait-Crème more. I have never bought any La Mer products and to be honest, working in the beauty industry, I have picked up tips and products from makeup artists and never seen La Mer in their kits unless they were given it for free. But Weleda and Embroyolisse is a MUST HAVE!
