Celebrity hairstylist Sherri Jessee was born and raised in Washington, D.C. Even as a young girl Sherri was fascinated by beautiful hair. Take the late Farrah Fawcett for example.
Sherri really admired Farrah's precision cut feathered hairstyle which was a highly coveted hairstyle by women around the world.
She wanted to copy the style on her own hair. Unfortunately when Sherri was growing up visits to the salon were very few and far between.
Not willing to give up on her dream of beautiful winglike layers, Sherri took matters into her own hands. She "cut off an inch" of her own hair "at a time" hoping her parents wouldn't notice. Slowly and surely she began cutting into the layers."
Around that same time, after a "traumatizing" trip to the barbershop with her father, Sherri starting doing the hair of her younger sister Karen.
She became her baby sister's personal stylist. Everything turned out for the best. Apparently Karen liked Sherri's hair styling technique. Speed ahead a few years and Karen is now Sherri's salon manager.
Although Sherri admitted she never thought of hairdressing as a "real career", she remembers being a young girl and "drawing pictures of hair styles".
Not believing she could have a successful career in the world of hair she majored in theater while in college.
Unfortunately, her tuition was so steep she couldn't afford it, and decided to consider some other career. A friend suggested Sherri go to cosmetology school.
She decided to take her friend's advice and went to Virginia Academy of Hairstyling. After putting in the hard work in school, she made it through and learned some valuable lessons about speed and accuracy.
Her first job after beauty school was working at The Hair Zoo, a top salon in town owned by a husband and wife team.
The salon was commission-based which was initially challenging for Sherri. Although it took her some time to build up her business, she didn't get discouraged and worked hard to build her reputation in the hair world.
