Jessica Kulas Matel

Owner & Master Stylist

I’ve been doing hair since 2006, but I’ve had an interest in style my whole life. Opening my own salon has been a long time dream, so I am beyond excited to finally be operating in my own establishment–Hairpin Salon in Bayport, Minnesota.

Getting to this point has been a long, worthwhile journey. I grew up in La Crosse, Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Art Education and minored in Special Education. After that, I spent some valuable time teaching art at Very Special Arts in Madison, Wisconsin until my interest in hair and fashion led me back to school to earn my Cosmetology degree.

I was trained at the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis. After obtaining my Cosmetology license in 2006, I started styling hair at Details Style Lab in St. Paul, where I also taught an advanced training program. In 2009, I received my Cosmetology Instructor license. I was with Details for three years, then I got married and moved to the Stillwater area. The move brought me to Japa Salon in downtown Stillwater where I continued to style, and taught some specialty classes there as well. Lately my focus has been on opening Hairpin Salon with the help of my husband, Jon, and raising my beautiful daughter, May, who was born in January 2011.

My work experience has awarded me with some exciting opportunities in fashion; I was involved with a few fashion shows through Details and a few shows through Japa. My most recent work was for the 2012 Winter Carnival fashion show in St. Paul, where I had a blast creating glamorous updos for the Winter Carnival Queen and Princess candidates.

I am so excited to be entering this next stage in my life–owning my own salon and sharing my passion for art and style with my clients in the Stillwater/Bayport area. My experience with cuts, colors, updos, textures and trends allows me to meet every customer’s expectation for a personal, well-crafted, beautiful style.
