Jarah is the salon/boutique owner and a licensed cosmetologist at HBJ Glam Studio, located in Tallahassee, Florida. She has been practicing her craft for over 10 years. Jarah specializes in all hair types and is considered by her clients to be a perfectionist that takes pride in her work. Her clients rave at the individual attention that results in their inner and outer beauty.
As a teenager Jarah began doing her own hair. While attending college to peruse her degree in Fashion Merchandising, as a single parent, Jarah continued to hone her skills by doing hair for classmates and family members. Word traveled fast about the quality of her work and it didn’t take long for demand for her services to grow. So did her passion, as she realized doing hair was no longer a hobby but it was a God-given talent that she should seriously pursue.
Jarah gave up her job to attend cosmetology school fulltime. With hard work and commitment she managed to complete the cosmetology program and take the state board examination in only nine months.
Upon becoming a Licensed Cosmetologist Jarah immediately began to build her brand. She launched her Virgin hair extension line, HBJ Glam Extensions in 2013. That gave her clients access to premium grade hair extensions. After two years of working in various salons, Jarah opened her first salon, HBJ Glam Studio salon suite to better serve her faithful and growing clientele. Not long after, she transitioned from her salon suite into a full service salon and boutique, HBJ Glam Studio Salon & Boutique.
In December of 2017, Jarah was awarded the Beast and the Beast Artistry “Best Sew-in, in the Big Bend”.
Jarah has a strong passion to give back to community. One of the events that Jarah is most proud of is "Pink Friday" this is her annual breast cancer awareness event. As a daughter of a breast cancer survivor she has become an activist for making younger women aware of early detection. With hopes of making it a month long event in years to come. She also collects non perishable items year round for one of the local food banks in her community. Its deeper than doing hair, it is also a ministry to her.
Jarah absolutely enjoys her career. The satisfying part of the experience that Jarah gives her clients is at the end when she turns them around to the mirror. No matter how many clients she has or how many times she has serviced them, seeing a satisfied client’s smile is beyond gratifying for her. A true perfectionist, Jarah remains humble relishes her current success and would love the chance to be YOUR stylist.
