Hello Beautiful Friends!
We are very excited about our next Beauty Profile! Please let us introduce you to Jamie Powell. We’ll let Jamie introduce herself!
I am a hairstylist and one of the managers at Mane Street Hair Salon here in Owen Sound. I have been a hairstylist for 10 years and started working at Mane Street when I was seventeen before going away to Ottawa to hair school. I feel extremely lucky to be in a career that is also my biggest passion. I can truly say I love what I do, it makes me feel so good to make others feel good. Having good hair is a huge confidence booster and I’m here to help everyone have the best hair! I also enjoy being able to teach my clients about their hair as well, feel free to follow my hair page on Instagram for some tips: @the.lived.in.blonde.
When I’m not in the salon I enjoy spending time with my partner and our dog Bridget. We love to go on hikes and fun weekend getaways. We also love to travel and explore new places and enjoy different food. I also enjoy spending my time off with friends and family. It’s the little things in life that are truly the biggest and most important. Just being able to enjoy a good cup of coffee or a nice walk or some time with loved ones is all I need.
I believe in always working to better yourself and to never stop learning. If we knew everything then life would be pretty boring.
What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty to me has so many different meanings.
- Being kind, thoughtful and understanding.
- Feeling confident in your own skin.
- Doing whatever makes you happy.
- Being healthy inside and out.
When do you feel that you are most beautiful?
I feel most beautiful when I’m doing things that I love. Whether it be camping and hiking or dressed up for a date night. I also feel really good in the mornings after I do my skincare routine.
Can you describe your skincare routine?
With the help of Colleen and the girls at Profile I have been able to develop a good skincare routine.
- Cleanse face (sometimes I will just rinse my face with water instead of cleansing. You were just sleeping so chances are your face didn’t get that dirty overnight)
- Apply vitamin C
- Apply Phyto Gel (redness corrector)
- Apply moisturizer (Metacell B3)
- Last but not least SUNSCREEN (I could go on for days about making sure you wear your sunscreen)
- Cleanse face
- Apply retinol (I sometimes don’t do this every night)
- Apply night cream
What is the one product that you cannot live without?
That is an extremely hard question for me because I love all my skincare products and there’s also some hair products I wouldn’t want to be without either. But if I’m thinking about the most important product to keep my skin healthy then I would say my skinceuticals tinted sunscreen.
Are there any beauty tips / traditions in your family?
Make sure to get your beauty sleep! Do what makes your soul happy. Get that daily exercise in for the body and the mind. Most important have a good Vitamin C and sunscreen for protection and a really good moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Also let’s not forget being kind is what will make you the most beautiful.
What is next on your ‘wishlist’ of treatments you’d like to try?
That’s a tough one because I’m pretty open to try most things. But I would say either IPL or laser hair removal.
