Q: Let’s get to it, what’s your business’ specialty?
A: We specialize in luxury hairstyles and make-up for weddings and events.
Q: Where can we find you?
A: You can currently find Jessica at Wild Hare Salon and Gallery.
Q: Tell us when and how your business began.
A: We became best friends in 7th Grade and both of us went into the beauty industry after high school. After Jessica came back from Florida in 2016, we both decided we wanted a future in weddings and events. Scarlett had launched Pin-Ups for Soldiers in St. Cloud when her husband took his second deployment. It was so gratifying and with so many years of on-site wedding experience, there was no doubt this was our future. We founded Gypsy Hair Guru in 2017 and continue to grow.
Q: What makes your company unique from others?
A: There are so many things about us that are truly unique. I believe our adaptability is what really sets us apart from the rest. We are always willing to go the extra mile whether that means driving across Minnesota or Wisconsin to get to that far-away wedding or providing detailed services to accommodate every ethnic background. Going above and beyond is who we are.
Q: How long have you been in the industry? What do you think has changed the most since then?
A: We entered the industry 20. I believe the changes that took place over the pandemic will forever change the industry.
Q: Walk us through your average day.
A: That’s the fun part—every day is different! We are juggling salon clients, homes, children, and Gypsy Hair Guru.
Q: What would you want couples searching for your business type to know?
A: We take pride in our work. We travel the country to receive the best education and ever grow our talents to give you the best service and skills.

A: The boho style is right up our alley, along with flowers and foliage to add to your do.
Q: Where do you find inspiration for wedding beauty?
A: Russian hairstylists like Gulnara and Gregorovich have given me so much inspiration to grow. They are revolutionizing the modern up style.
