Jennifer DiMatteo

Owner, Salon blonDi

Jen started out in 1995 at Schilling-Douglas School of Hair Design, and jumped right into her first salon working as a shampoo girl. For 17 years she worked behind the chair for other owners and then in 2012 she decided she was ready to spread her wings, taking a leap of faith in opening Salon blonDi and never looking back!
Certified in Great Lengths, Hotheads and Bellami Hair extensions, Jen loves giving her clients long luscious locks with hair extensions. She also is big into going to hair classes and continuing her education – new techniques for highlighting is something that she loves to bring back to her clients.
When she is not in the salon, she loves to try out new restaurants or just stay home.
