Originally from Montenegro, Jelena’s passion for fashion and style lead her to none other than New York City. Jelena started her journey in fashion with some of the industry’s most recognized names such as Nicole Miller. Years of working on set with different creative artists piqued her interest into the world of hair which lead her to begin training in Soho, NY where she worked for John Barrett salon. After gaining years of experience, Jelena decided to make the transition out of the city and joined the Jaafar Tazi Salon’s team where she continues to pursue her passion of cutting and styling hair. Her combination of expertise in fashion and beauty lends her a sharp eye for creating uniquely beautiful looks for each of her clients.
