Jennifer Mcgillic






 I have been in the industry 8 years. I consider myself an artist, using hair as my canvas! I was born and raised in Portland. I’ve got two children,one granddaughter and two fur babies! I consider myself a home body when I’m not working. I enjoy watching movies, reading and spending time with friends & family.  That doesn’t mean I’m not up for an adventure!! I try my very best to have an open mind as well as an open heart!
