Her Work:

Her humility and humanity were always her shining trademarks. As the artistic director of John Paul Mitchell Systems, a fashion designer, innovative entrepreneur, long-hair genius and global platform educator, she refused to be limited. Today, she's living the "second part of my life," as Jeanne Foster, doing global missionary work, along with her husband, retired orthopedic surgeon, Dean Foster. They focus on learning and sharing "cellular fitness, physical health and Christian wellbeing, as the foundations of holistic beauty."

Why She's Influential: Prior to her industry retirement, she was the most recognized female platform artist in the world. In 1993, she was named the first recipient of the North American Hairstylist of the Year (NAHA) Trustees Award, which honors the year's strongest role model for U.S. hairdressers.

Who Influences Her: "I will always be thankful to Paul Mitchell for giving me the opportunity to grow in this industry."
