JENNIPHER VAN BOGART
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Originally? Los Angeles, but I’ve been around.
WHERE ARE YOU LIVING NOW?
WHO, AND WHAT, HAS INFLUENCED YOU?
My relationships with people, specifically the creative energy of my friends, acquaintances, my clients, the neighborhood… this city!
I was very lucky to start cutting hair at a time when the information was not so watered down, when rules and boundaries were deeply instilled. It gave me a solid base to build my style on. My educators and mentors were incredible. Backgrounds ranging from the structure of mid/late 90’s Vidal Sassoon to Toni + Guy, breaking all the rules in the early 2000’s.
Such a good time for hair.

WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR INSPIRATION?
The landscapes of my origin: the West. The desert. The sea. In my mind, I wake up at the beach. I surf, I do yoga. This is my internal vision to start my day. Art - performances, music, film, photography. Print - magazines are still my favorite form of media. I’m such a visual person, I take everything in - movement, sound, the depth, the tiniest detail. I rely on my intuition to filter what I take in and channel it into my work.
WHO IS YOUR DREAM CLIENT?
As it happens, Winona and I have worked together a few times... dreams do come true!
