Jennifer Dozier Horter, owner of Bombshell Salon in Ellicott City, Maryland, brought along senior stylist Stacie Snyder to help her create Finding Neverland. “It’s my version of one of the most iconic characters of all time,” Horter says. “The idea was to capture the spirit of Tinkerbelle’s dual personality.” To accentuate “Tink’s” mischievous and dark nature and to highlight the inner light that shines in her, Horter and Snyder created a braided crown and faux fringe to bring more light around her face while using blended textures to enhance the beauty of the conflicted fairy.
Mentoring comes easily to Horter who frequently quotes John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell CEO): “Success unshared is failure,” she says. “Whenever there is an opportunity for me, I want to make that an opportunity for someone else.” Horter has learned to pay it forward, starting with her staff of 20. “I have had wonderful mentors in my own career and know how important that can be. As a salon owner, I’ve learned that opportunity should present itself to the entire team.”
