Jenna Collins enjoys doing her makeup and hair, but she rarely gets the opportunity to go out somewhere and be truly pampered.
At 19 years old, Collins is studying graphic design at East Central Community College in Union, having secured an A+ scholarship before graduating from Maries R-1 High School in Vienna, Missouri, in 2016. Her parents, Melissa and Doug, and two younger brothers, Tyler and Nicholas, still live in her hometown, and Collins works at Checo’s Mexican Restaurant in Vienna. However, while she is pursuing her degree, she is living with her grandmother in Taos.
Collins also has a passion for animals, having had cats and rabbits of her own.
“She brought home a stray kitten, whom is named Scooter, and has brought home a couple of rabbits,” Melissa said. “Her favorite pastime is eating, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at her.”
With busy professional and personal schedules, Collins was thrilled to receive a makeover through the help of Catherine Crum The Salon & Spa and Saffees. The experience showed her a more “grown-up” style, but how to also be in with current trends, she said.
“My favorite part about the experience was getting my hair colored and makeup done. I was able to get a color that I normally would have not done on myself. I also enjoyed working with Judy at Saffees in selecting a different style of clothes then my usual jeans and T-shirts,” Collins said. “It was great; I had a lot of fun, and it’s definitely something I won’t forget!”

The Style: Hair & Makeup
Stylist applied an organic plant based Aveda chocolate gloss all over for a rich shine. Caramel highlights placed around the face add dimension. Hair was point cut to create movement in the hair. Hair was styled and blown dry with organic Aveda products. To create a softer flow around her face, her hair was flipped opposite of natural part to create a nice swoop across the forehead.
If you feel your hair is flat and lifeless, try blow drying it the opposite way it naturally falls or opposite of the way you normally style it.
BareMinerals make up was applied. For her complexion, bareSkin liquid foundation was applied with a brush. For her eyes, the stylist applied chocolate brown with a hint of coral shadow. Apricot blush was applied to her cheeks, and her lips were finished with bareMinerals Matte lipstick.
