November 2011 Client of The Month: JENNIFER MISSONI!
I first met Jenny 8 years ago in Italy during the last fashion show of Tom Ford for Gucci. She was so humble and sweet, and we became friends immediately. We discussed her moving to New York and becoming a blonde… A few weeks later, she showed up at my salon where she became a blonde and a very special woman in my life! She has a beautiful soul and great family values. She is so amazing to her sister, Madeleine, and after meeting her parents, I completely understood why this beautiful creature is so real and so loving. They taught her how to treat people with love. Jenny has not changed a bit, but she has become a great inspiration to me. She loves fashion and has changed her personal look many times, but her heart remains the same, humble and loving. I am thankful to have your support and friendship. I love you, Jenny and all my staff love you, too!
Whether blonde or brunette, Jennifer Missoni is as cool as you get.
From the moment she entered the salon to transform her long, silky brown hair to platinum blonde, she elevated our mood. We lightened her hair while she brightened our day. It’s so rare to work with someone with such magnificent beauty and prestige who is so down to earth. Alma says, “she is simple in many ways, but there is nothing ‘plain’ about her!” Her warmth is palpable and the joy in her spirit is downright enviable.
Jennifer is the granddaughter of Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, the founders of the iconic fashion house we all know and adore. Known for their bright and fun colors and now for their bright and fun granddaughter, the Missoni fashion house has shaped the international definition of chic. While choosing a different direction for her life at this time, Jennifer credits growing up in a strong and loving family for the confidence to pursue her dreams. Family means everything to her, and her beautiful memories of growing up Missoni reflect a positive, affectionate attitude that is obvious when she speaks about her remarkable siblings. And even though family comes first for Jennifer, she has admirably paved her own way without riding the momentum of her namesake.
Jennifer is genuinely a happy woman, living each moment of her life to the fullest. And when it comes to love, her teacup runneth over! Jennifer has found what Alma describes as an “out of this world” romance with accomplished multimedia artist and director Tommaso Cardile. Coming from similar backgrounds (their families were longtime friends), Jennifer and Tommaso discovered that they were soul mates waiting to happen. Alma says this “gorgeous couple” epitomizes “unconditional love”. That love is symbolized by a beautiful and sentimental vintage engagement ring. Whether donning beautiful vintage jewelry or comfy Lululemon workout clothes, this stunning inspiration of a woman is comfortable in her skin and wears life well.
We meet so many amazing people in this industry, of every description, but it is truly hard to capture the essence of Jennifer Missoni using simple pronouns, adjectives and verbs. Her spirit inspires, delights, enlivens and refreshes. She is simply magical.
Regardless of how we color and style her hair, one thing is certain … Jennifer Missoni will always remain deeply connected to her roots.
