JESSA SMITH

Jessa has spent most of her life in Spokane, but loves to adventure different places.
Since she was young, she always felt like the beauty industry was where she belonged. This became a reality after she attended Boise State University pursuing business; doing hair always had a special place in her heart and it is truly her passion! Building relationships is essentially important to her as well as making people feel special and heard while you’re in her chair! She joined Craft in 2023 after beauty school as part of our Associate’s Program and is quickly working her way up!
