Stylist Jacinta Franchon first caught our attention as a 2015 Voice of Hair stylist winner. The licensed stylist has been professionally styling hair for almost 15 years, creating hair magic for a wide-ranging clientele, including personalities from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and New York Fashion Week designers. “I’ve always loved to do hair,” she said. “It just came naturally to me.”
Armed with a degree in business, Jacinta took her passions to the next level, opening up her own salon Franchon Parlour in Columbia, MD and luxury hair extensions company, JFREMY. Here, we learn more about the hair diva and her creations.
