Jess Monzalvo is a Chicago based cosmetologist who honed her skills while studying in New York. She discovered her love for hair and makeup at the age of nine, "producing" family functions that included a lot of blue eyeshadow & hairspray! Traveling to Japan, Mexico, and New York to expand her creative inspiration and knowledge, she decided to fully immerse herself in the arts by attending Makeup Forever Academy NYC where she trained in Beauty/Fashion, Special Effects, TV, and Body Painting. After graduation, her love for the industry grew stronger as did her clientele. She now counts Victoria’s Secret, Vera Wang, and Telemundo as regular clients amongst many others. Striving to excel as an artist, Jess approaches every client with an open mind and a positive attitude.
