Jennifer Mistretta/Hair and Makeup Artist
I am Jennifer Mistretta from Harrisburg, PA. When I was 2-years old I started playing with my Mom’s waist-length hair along with the hair on all of my dolls.
By the time I was in Jr. High all my dolls had new haircuts and fresh faces. When I reached my freshman year of high school I started working in a salon sweeping hair, folding towels and scheduling appointments. THIS WAS MY DREAM JOB!!
By the time I graduated from Middletown Area High School I was already enrolled for Empire beauty school's fall class.
As I was rapidly approaching graduation early in 1998 I was presented with an opportunity to do hair and make up for a film called “Sally”. Eager to explore all angles of my trade I jumped on this opportunity was hired on as the hair and make-up assistant. From there I have continuously worked as a Stylist in a few salons along the way and I also have a passion for doing free-lance wedding hair and make-up.
For the past 4 years I have done all of the hair for the spring musicals that Middletown high school has put on to include “Grease” (2013), “State Fair” (2014), “Damn Yankees” (2015), and “Bye-Bye Birdie” (2016). I am currently employed with Hair Cuttery at East Penn Center in Enola, PA. I am really excited for this opportunity to work with such an amazing cast and crew on “Right Before Your Eyes”! I can't wait to make everyone beautiful…One face and head at a time!!!! Love and Peace… -Jennifer
