Stylist: Jennifer Kenny

Rating: Salon Rating: 1 Scissors

I was incredibly disappointed with Jennifer and my haircut with her. This was my first "curly cut" after I had done CG for about 6 months. I was very excited about the cut from all of her great reviews. (Which I later noticed, several are written the same day and are likely not real clients) the first thing she told me when I walked in was that she won't have enough time to cut and style my hair and didn't greet me at all. I decided to let that go...I was explaining my hair quirks to her and she proceeded to start with the ouidad carve and slice cut and styled using the rake and shake method. The cut was very uneven and she put way too much product in my hair after I told her that my hair doesn't respond well to a lot of product and a lot of manipulation and she ignored it and did it anyway, and then called my hair weird!!! Afterwards I was told to sit under the dryer for an hour while she cut someone else's hair and when I finally left - and paid $100 - I was so angry. I went back to her later to have her fix the cut and I still wasn't happy. I never returned! Hope you all have better luck with her.

I really love my new curly hair and wouldn't think of straightening it. Jen is very talented and sweet. I would highly recommend her to anyone with curly hair--you will never be able to go anywhere else. No more pyramid shapes. Thanks to her, I love my hair for the first time!!

A Ouidad stylist right here in Tampa and what a Ouidad stylist she is! My hair life could not be better and I thank goodness that I found Jennifer Kenny. Jen cut my hair 3 months ago and I have not had a bad hair day since and not only does my hair still look great, it looks better and better every day. Jen is worth every penny you will spend on her haircuts! I no longer have to worry or be apprehensive when I need a haircut, I have total confidence in Jen and do not even feel I need to tell her what I want, I totally trust her judgment. In addition, Jen takes her time styling your hair after the cut and explaining what products will work best with your hair and gives you plenty of samples to try before you buy. I have lived in Tampa for 30 years and for 30 years I have found few hair stylists that know what they are doing, especially when cutting curly hair. Actually I only found one and he was in Ft. Lauderdale I have gone to what are supposed to be the "best" stylists in Tampa dropping $100 + on a haircut and have come home crying and on the search to find another to fix the mess I would be in. Examples of those "top" stylists and salons, Mikel at Mikel's on S. MacDill and Chad at Salon Jack on S. MacDill, believe me Jennifer Kenny is soooo much better than this stylist and worth the money you pay, the others, not so much. Thank you Jen, each day when I jump out of the shower I am grateful I found you!

Jennifer saved my curls!! I started growing out my relaxer about a year and a half ago and am completely natural now. I was blowing my hair out and using the flat iron still so my hair was still behaving as though it was relaxed. However I was frustrated because I thought I was ruining my hair because everytime I tried to wear my curls it was big and frizzy. I was just about to cut it all off and relax it again when I decided to give a professional a chance to teach me how to care for my curls. I found The Curl Girl on NaturllyCurly and went in for a consult. Jennifer made me a believer again and I have been wearing my beautiful curls (that I didn't realize I had) proudly ever since. I've even thrown out all of my bubbly shampoo and started caring for my 3 year old's hair as well. Thanks Jen!

Several years ago, I had heard of the "carve and slice" cut by Ouidad. Being a curly headed chicha for many years, I had had more than my share of butchered hair cuts so, I ventured to find where this haircut was. I went on the internet to book an appointment but, at the time, there were only 2 salons in the world that did this cut.... Santa Monica and NYC. So, being the desperate curly headed gal that I am, I booked a flight to LA (saw family too.... not THAT desperate) and got my 1st Ouidad cut. I was THRILLED! Problem: now I will have to fly across the country to get a great haircut. Problem solved: Jennifer now does the Ouidad cut, 5 minutes from my home. She does a fantastic job of incorporating the Ouidad techniques and her other training in curly hair to give me the best style every time. Love you Jenn for giving me peace of mind when it comes to my hair. I no longer have to feel anxious that I could walk away from a salon with butchered hair. I've gone from hating to get my hair cut to absolutely loving it!

It is so refreshing to find a stylist who can make me love my curls again. I found Jennifer via the Ouidad website and sent a message requesting a consultation. She called me that day and said I could pop in, even if she was with a client. I knew then that she is passionate about her work and takes her "Curl Girl" designation very seriously. The consultation was great - she looked at my hair, listened to my complaints, and talked about products we could try. On the day of my appointment, I was so excited to get old relaxed hair cut off and see how my natural curls would look with a shorter cut. She was excited, too! She took her time and explained everything. She is a great stylist and fabulous person. I'm thrilled to finally have someone who knows how to deal with my curls!

Jen is so fabulous with curly hair. I had been looking for someone with even just a little bit of knowledge of how to cut curly hair and Jen really knows her stuff. She took time to talk to me about her training, how she would be cutting my hair and the products she would recommend. She's an expert to the 10th degree!

This was my first real curlygirl cut , and I couldn't be happier. Jen explained every step she and why she did it from styling to product application and the actual cut. It was a relief to be with a stylist that loves curls and understands that I wanted to keep them and not have them straightened. The only downside is that it's a little pricey (but really, how often do curls need to be cut anyway :), but it's DEFINITELY WORTH IT for the expertise provided.

Recently found Jennifer on the naturallycurly.com salon finder and I couldn't be happier. Jennifer & I had set up a consultation and she took all the time I needed to answer all of my questions regarding her technique for cutting curly hair and the product that she recommends. Because my hair had been cut a little shorter than I would have liked (not by Jennifer, but my previous stylist) , she recommended that I let it grow out a bit so there would be more to work with. She explained to me that she has had specific training in cutting curly hair, and boy could I tell the difference between my old cut and the new. It's like my curls have finally been cut to work with the curl pattern they were meant to have.

Jennifer is a god-send. I actually worked at a salon previously as a receptionist that had several stylist trained in Deva - several cuts with them and I still wasn't happy. I was loosing hope at ever finding anyone who understood my curls for their unique quirks. I have 3a/b hair, and I also have some crazy kinky frizzy sections around the hairline of my forehead. Whenever I got my hair cut professionally I would leave with it huge and frizzy and ugly in my opinion. I ended up just having my mom trim my hair whenever it started to drive me crazy, which was fine but I knew my hair could be better. Its my crowning-glory, something I want to be proud of, something special and unique about me. When I found Jennifer online, at naturallycurly.com, and read all the wonderful reviews she had, it gave me hope. So saving up money for something I never treated myself to, I went to her for a cut and style. OH WOW! I cant even begin to say how great my experience was. She knows her curls through and through. She knew what I wanted even when I didn't. She knew how to bring out the best in my curls, and how to explain and teach me to take care of them myself! The cut was perfect, exactly what I had wanted for so long. She even styled it to perfection! Taking the time to explain and show me tips and tricks along the way. I got so many compliments afterward, even if they didn't know what was different about me, they said I looked great. For someone with low self esteem that makes all the difference in the world - and I thank Jenn for it. Not only is she knowledgeable but she is kind and caring, and definitely deserving of any recognition she gets.

Jen is so GREAT - so upbeat - so seriously interested in the quality of her work and the outcome. She is the first stylist who understands my wavy grey hair - I love Jen so much I took my 11 year old granddaughter to her. I think it is very necessary to have an 11 year old learn to love her very curly hair not let anyone tell her she needs it straightened or that they can do nothing with her hair. Gracie learned to love and appreciate the beauty of her curly locks from Jennifer.

This is one of the best haircuts I have ever had. I was on vacation in Tampa just before the Christmas season. I was in desperate need of a haircut and color and could never find time at home just for me. Somehow, on vacation I seemed to have lots of time for myself and so I booked an appointment at Tranzitions. The salon was recommended to me by family I have in Tampa. Jennifer took so much time with me making sure that my cut was perfect and that I could make it look as great as she did the next day and the next.... She taught me how to style my hair in a way that I could do it myself -- and I did and still am every morning! I am still getting compliments on my hair and it has been almost a month. Thanks Jennifer!

I always thought my very thick 3A/3B curls were strange looking and too difficult for most stylists to handle because over the years they have either complained about me while I sat in their chair, charged me more than they charged their other clients or refused to cut my hair altogether (2 stylists have done this to me stating it took too long and that they could see 3 clients in the time it took to work with me alone!), but Jen Kenney was completely different! She's very professional, friendly, and makes me feel so much more confident about having curly hair. She doesn't blow dry my hair straight after cutting it or encourage me to get it chemically straightened as so many have in the past, and she actually cut it into a style that doesn't resemble a pyramid or a bell. As a matter of fact, I rarely lose any length when I go to her; she mostly gives it shape and takes out the bulk and it looks so shiny and healthy! No matter how much training a stylist receives, I truly believe that properly cutting curly hair takes talent, and Jen possesses this gift-which is so rare. I'm moving away soon and I'm in a panic about how I'm going to find someone to do even HALF of what Jen has done for me, not to mention how good and happy and confident I feel when I get up from her chair. That says a lot - I lost my job this year along with several other difficulties I've been faced with, so my confidence has been in the gutter - Jen is most deserving of awards, kudos, a raise...everything and anything to express my and certainly her other clients' gratitude for how great she makes them not only look but more importantly feel.

Jennifer Kenny is the hair genius and saviour to curly heads hidden in Tampa, Florida. Her vast knowledge of cutting and styling techniques for curly hair was obvious as I sat in her chair last night. She is down to earth and very personable yet profound in her knowledge of all things hair. I'm an extremely picky customer; I did a lot of research before deciding to book with 'the curl girl', and I've spend hundreds of dollars on haircuts with top hair-art creators around the world, and she stands easily with the best of them when it comes to curly hair. I look forward to seeing more editorial work from Jennifer as I truly believe she understands and treats hair as a 3-dimensional sculpture.

Jennifer is amazing. Not only did she do an amazing cut on and style on my daughter's super curly q hair, but Jenn taught her and me how to style it with the proper products so my daughter can leave the house without a ponytail! Thanks Jenn!!

For as long as I can remember, I hated to get my hair cut because no one knows how to cut kinky curly hair. For over 20 years, I straightened my hair and just got tired of fighting my curls and the hair damage caused by those harsh chemicals. All those years I walked out of salons with a pyramid cut and extremely unhappy...but the ends needed to get cut. Just last year, I found my Jennifer Kenny via a friend searching online for curly hair specialists. I live about 1.5 hours away from Transitions and found it ludicrous to drive that far to have someone cut my hair, but I did, and will drive it every time. As I sat on Jennifer's chair I was sweating from overwhelming fear. She put me at ease and just told me to trust her. I loved the fact that she truly listened to my heart before she even started touching my hair. For the first time in my life I walked out of a salon totally satisfied and loving my curls...and thanks to Ouidad products.

Jennifer is the best! After nearly 50 years, I have finally decided to embrace my curls instead of fighting them. I had come to her after a search on the internet for someone who could work with curly hair properly. She was very patient when I couldn't tell her exactly what I wanted and the was very informative when she instructed me in how to care for my curls. The cuts I get from her last for months, so the nearly 90 miles I drive one way to see here are not even a consideration. As I said in the beginning, Jennifer is the best! PS I had no way of knowing if 1 or 5 is the top, but she deffinitly is!

Jennifer is the most dedicated and passionate salon professional I have ever worked with. She takes pride in her work and truly listens. I had previous trouble with getting any stylist to understand my needs and wants. Jennifer is able to take what I say and turn it into beautiful hair. No question is stupid to her and she is very patient when teaching her clients how to care for their curls She has extensive knowledge on products and researches everything she recommends. She's the kind of stylist I would blindly trust to cut, color, and style my curls her own way. I could never say enough about how great she is. She has taught me to love my hair and I am forever grateful!
