While growing up in Ecuador, Jacqueline Cicala acquired an eye for fashion and beauty after participating in pageants and primping her loved ones. Upon relocating to the US, she earned a cosmetology degree and honed her skills in New York salons. She also studied theatrical makeup at Last Looks Makeup Academy and aesthetics and hair design at Artistic Academy. When she wasn't taking classes, she shadowed bridal and runway experts, participated in Fashion Week, and attended major trade shows.
After amassing more than a decade of experience, Jacqueline founded a boutique salon known as Blowout, where her team of seasoned stylists transforms customers with environmentally friendly beauty products such as Davines and Rahua. While they sculpt new hairdos with cuts, coloring, and extensions, customers can peruse the staff’s past work, which hangs proudly on the walls.
Jacqueline also started Looks, a Jefferson township hair and makeup service for weddings, private parties, television, and rodeo-clown tryouts. While she embellishes brides, she works with other stylists and uses only hypoallergenic products from brands such as MAC, Lancôme, and Trucco.
