Hela Salon + Spa’s Celebrity Hair Stylist Jessica Dunaway

I have curls!

I had the distinct pleasure of having my hair highlighted and styled by Ms. Jessica Dunaway of Hela Spa in Chevy Chase, MD.  Hela in Swedish means, “a Swedish oasis admist a bustling city.”

Jessica is a statuesque 6’0” tall, professional, beautiful, young woman from South Carolina who loves what she does and loves D.C.  She is excellent at coloring and doing make-up that high-profile clients recommend her to other celebrities.  She has worked with Debra Messing, Zac Efron, Molly Sims, Mandy Moore, and more.  She has recently styled many stars for the Kennedy Center Honors and hobnobbed with the likes of Mariah Carey and Annie Lennox. She has also worked in New York Fashion Week and DC Fashion Week, among many other events.  However, one of Jessica’s specialties is weddings.

Thank you Jessica and Hela!

Upon my visit, I got highlights done and Jessica curled my hair – I never curl my hair so this was a super-treat for me! She made my hair look sun-kissed and completely natural.  I am so happy with the way my hair came out – thank you Jessica and Hela!
