Dying for Gigi Hadid’s luscious bronde mane? Dreaming of Jessica Alba’s sleek, effortless waves? Then you’re in luck, as stylist to the stars, Jennifer Yepez, is in town.
From November 10 to 11, the renowned celebrity hairstylist will be offering Dubai clients a taste of her magical touch at the JetSet salon in Emirates Towers.
The stylist, whose client list reads like a who’s who of the stars of the runway and the silver screen, has worked with the crème de la crème of international photographers for cover shoots and campaigns for the world’s top fashion publications and can hardly wait to get to work in Dubai.
“I’m super excited to work with women here in the Middle East as a whole. I can’t wait to meet my new clients here and collaborate on gorgeous new looks for them.”
Accompanied by in-demand colourist Cassondra Kaeding, it looks like now is the perfect time to sign yourself up for that long overdue make-over.
Speaking exclusively to emirateswoman.com ahead of her Dubai gig, Jennifer filled us in on all her top tips as well as the upcoming, cutting-edge trends that are getting her fired up.
While the scissor sister is a huge fan of both the lob and the current ‘It-girl’ cut, the Gatsby-inspired bob – “It’s fun and different! There’s something about a Gatsby bob makes women feel fresh and liberated” – Jennifer insists the next big thing involves a longer, fuller head of hair.

“After seasons of the now infamous ‘lob’, we’re starting to see much longer lengths for 2017. Colourwise, I think we’re going to see a return to classic, natural, deeper tones that are full of dimension,” she reveals.
She also tells us that while it’s “definitely important to follow trends and be current on what’s in fashion”, she always likes to put her own unique twist on things, such “a bleach and tone, in order to stand out”.
Her ultimate goal though is to make her client look and feel great, which, she says, is “season-less”.
So, whose hair should we be coveting? “The Kardashians (collectively) all have awesome hair. They are constantly changing their looks, trying out new styles, and even using wigs and extensions to test out different hair colours and styles. It’s fun to see their versatility and watch them drive trends,” says Jennifer.
She’s also a huge fan of Rooney Mara, who she’s been styling for over five years.
“What I love about working with her is she has a very distinct point of view. She knows what she wants, and what she looks good in, and that’s always refreshing.”
Leaving us with her top tips for happy, healthy, gorgeous looking hair, Jennifer says the secret lies in: “frequent haircuts, using the right products for your hair type, investing in a quality hair mask (I like Ouai’s hair treatment masques,) not overusing hot styling tools and keeping up with your colour appointments so the hair doesn’t get dry and brassy.”
