Born a natural artist and creative, Professional Beauty Association (PBA) Member Javier Jaimes found his way to the beauty industry after his mother was suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer. As a result of her medical treatments, she needed new makeup and hair styling techniques to help support her evolving beauty routine, and Javier stepped in to provide innovative new looks that transformed her confidence during this challenging time. After quickly catching on to makeup artistry and demonstrating his ability to personalize beauty, Javier expanded his skill set to include hairstyling after encouragement from a trusted mentor.

And Javier’s path is just beginning. He was nominated as a NAHA 2019 Newcomer Stylist of the Year finalist, has been published six times in industry magazines and won the 2017 global Shu Uemura Gallery of Style competition. “I’m literally traveling the globe. I live in Denver, but I’m in Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York… literally all over the world. I didn’t think any of this was possible. I’m living a dream.”
To jump start his beauty career, Javier participated in PBA’s Beacon elite student program, which opened new career paths through tailored education and networking opportunities with other cosmetology students and key industry educators. After his enriching Beacon experience, Javier returned to the salon armed with new information, motivation and vision for his future. Now, Javier is an independent business owner running his own beauty projects and collaborating with other professionals around the country and the world.
