Our Staff :: David Jensen
David’s passion for hair started when he was just a child and “borrowed” his little sister’s Barbie dolls and practiced setting their hair and drying it with his mother’s hair dryer. He tragically learned that Barbie hair melts under the dryer.
Years later David studied cosmetology from the International Academy of Beauty Culture in Scottsdale, AZ and shortly thereafter fled the desert for the milder climes of Los Angeles. Since then David Jensen has 25 years of experience as a hairdresser working with clients to help them look and feel like Barbie.
Realizing that most people have a much busier life than hanging out with Midge in their Malibu townhouse or cruising around in a pink van, David’s creative and innovative styles begin with listening and learning about each client’s lifestyle, time and ability to work with their hair as well as reading their hair type and texture. After the trauma of Barbie’s meld-down David believes that the health and integrity of hair is of the utmost importance and works closely with each and every client to provide them with a hair care program and fabulous style that they can reproduce at home instilling them with confidence.
In his never-ending pursuit for education David has attended courses in hair-cutting at the Vidal Sassoon Academy and continues to study art and design which tend to influence his work in hair as well. He specializes in color and styling and doing hair for special occasions – think Wedding or Enchanted Evening Barbie.
