Meet Jennelle, Micropigmentation Specialist
Jennelle Harris was born and raised in the Bay Area where she takes full advantage of everything California has to offer. At a young age, her passion for beauty led her to school for makeup at Kryolan in San Francisco. After earning a diploma in Cosmetology, she started her career cutting hair and specializing in men’s hair fashion, while also maintaining her roots as a makeup artist.
Once Jennelle mastered the art of make-up application, studying their ingredients and their effect on the skin, she decided to combine her passion for makeup artistry and skincare, furthering her career in aestheticis. She began taking advanced classes in skincare to become an esthetician where she helped others with various skin conditions and other services.
Her passion for knowledge in the ever-changing skincare and beauty industry ensured that she stayed informed with the latest technologies, ingredients, and cutting-edge procedures, which she loved sharing with clients. This inspired her to teach classes at the number one beauty college in San Francisco, with a concentration in chemical peels and bridal makeup.
These professional skills and experiences provided her with a keen sense and an artistic eye. She takes her understanding of creating natural, symmetrical looks for clients and applies it to her work today as an SMP Master Technician.
Jennelle’s experience with scalp micropigmentation
When a close client and friend was diagnosed with cancer, it really hit home for Jennelle. After watching her friend experience thinning hair while undergoing chemo, she knew she needed to find a solution. That’s when Jennelle discovered Scalp Micropigmentation and immediately sought out one of the industry’s best, Marvin Furrow, to learn this meticulous trade.
After completing her master training program and apprenticeship with Marvin, she knew she had found her calling. From there, she became a Master Artist at Full Micropigmentation and was the first to open her own location in Walnut Creek, CA. After deciding to expand her menu and give her clients more, she left Full to join SMP Ink, where she shared the same creative vision. She is ecstatic to now offer a wide arrange of permanent cosmetic and beauty treatments for her client and friends.
