Hello Lovlies! Welcome to the official HJW Styles Website! I am so excited to be here with all of you. I thought I would officially introduce myself. My name is Hannah Jayne Walkingshaw and I am the founder of HJW Styles. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I married my number one fan and supporter, my best friend, Jake, on May 6, 2016. For as long as I can remember, I have loved doing hair.
When I was 5, My Dad brought home some dolls from his trip to Mexico. My mom noticed I was fascinated by their long, beautiful, hair, so she taught me how to braid it. I have been in love with hair ever since.
I began my official journey in the beauty industry in 2011, when in high school, I made the decision to attend cosmetology school part time. That decision made a huge impact in my life. I not only got a great education in hair, but I also made life long friends who share my passion. From there I finished my training at Taylor Andrews Academy of Hair Design. (I was even featured student of the month in May 2014!)
After being offered several jobs at several salons, I decided to begin my career at Kami Hair. I don't think I could have chosen a better salon to get my start! I loved working with such talented stylists and was blessed with amazing clients who made my day each time they sat in my chair. After working there for 2 years, I felt it was time to take a leap of faith and go out on my own.
Now I am the proud owner of HJW Styles Studio in Salt Lake City, Utah and couldn't be more happy! I am so lucky that my favorite hobby is also my career!
I have so many hair tips, favorite products, before and afters, lifestyle tips, and so much more to show you! I am so thrilled to share with you my love and my passion! I love all of you and am so grateful for your support. I cannot wait to take this journey with you!
