” How lucky are we stylist to possess the ability to make someone look, and even better, FEEL beautiful!”

Jessica Mingledorff

A successful hairstylist and now salon owner, Jessica Mingledorff has made an impression in the hair industry through social media, persistence and hard work.

Jessica began her hair journey nine years ago working for mentor Mrs. Donna Means, later beside her at Salon Dm3.

Jessica’s work is favorited among premier companies in the industry. She was nominated for the most significant global hair award for her beautiful ombre color, by BTC in 2017.

Given Jessica’s ambitious nature it is only natural that she launch Tribe Hair Company with her partner Catie Mcwhirter.

Jessica’s ability to make the most anxious clients feel at ease and comfortable in her chair — even when undergoing major transformations — is one of her many strengths. Jessica spends a little extra time on client consultation to establish both short and long-term hair goals. Her attention to detail is what sets her apart. Rest assured that you will appreciate Jessica’s attention to detail, and her ambition to go above and beyond.

Jessica’s love for education is no secret. She is invariably challenging herself and learning new techniques from the celebrity stylists she admires. Those who influence Jessica are Hair by Chrissy (Habit salon), Rameriez Tran, Dom Dom, Masters of Balayage, Pretty Little Ombre, Jacob Khan, and Nine Zero One — just to name a few.

Jessica’s dream for Tribe is to build an original boutique and upscale experience for her clients and to create a “Tribe” of stylists who share her passion for hair, education, creative energy, and with a hardworking attitude.
