Jenny McEdward

SENIOR STYLIST

At fourteen years old, Jenny started cutting her mom’s hair. Today she is one of Maine’s elite haircutting professionals. Her “less is more” philosophy translates into natural, livable, low maintenance care for her clients. Her approach has not changed since she walked into Akari in 2009 for a haircut and stayed to participate in our apprenticeship program. The wealth of knowledge she has gained from her training here to her education completed with Bumble and Bumble and Jane Iredale, and her years of experience have made her chair one of the most coveted at Akari.

Jenny runs the haircutting apprentice program here and is as passionate towards educating others in preparing for a career as she is for her clients.

An active young mother of two she embodies wellness, beauty and style. The experience of being in her chair feels like you are visiting with a close friend, making her one of the highest sought after stylists in Portland.
