Film reel for Jennifer Lee Johnson, hair stylist and makeup artist in Newport, RI
I met Jen on the set of a film I was producing in 2010. Since then, I have hired her for all of my projects ranging from narrative to corporate.
When it came to my wedding, the decision for my artist was simple.
She not only met my expectations, but she exceeded them, which she does every time.
Jen is my go-to hair/MUA. She's great at her job and delivering the right looks, that goes without saying. She also has the crucial ability to keep spirits high in the dark hours of a shoot. Highly recommend her.
Jennifer was hair and makeup person on two video interview shoots we conducted in the Chicago area. Jen is the consummate professional! She was on time, worked quickly, was thorough and meticulous, her skills are exceptional. The interviews were editorial in nature and Jen did an awesome job of making both our subjects very comfortable getting in front of the camera. In fact, she did such a good job that one of the subjects, a company president, asked for her card so he could contact her about projects his company had. If we have the opportunity to shoot in the Chicago area again, Jen will be the first person I'll call!
The best hair stylist I've ever been to. Jen takes her work seriously, and wants to give you exactly what you want. I always leave smiling, looking forward to what we can come up with next. Always a beautiful, fun, and successful visit!
Jennifer sets the bar really high when it comes to her work ethic and performance that it should be the standard. The combination of her cosmetic abilities, professionalism and genuine "small talk" made the process easy, quick, and fun. Before I knew it, I was a Civil War-torn bloodied soldier.
