Styledelphia owner Jessica Saint is a former model and modeling director who doles out a wealth of fashion-industry insight accrued during 10 years in the business. Now, along with a team of instructors and photographers, Jessica leads classes that show how hair, makeup, and wardrobe can mesh with one’s personal interests, career goals, and affinity for jumping out of moving cars. More niche classroom sessions, such as body-painting, vintage-hairstyling, and stage-makeup workshops, round out a creative-minded curriculum. Styledelphia’s expertise in retro styles adds realness to the studio’s boudoir-photography branch, which takes clients to shoot photos at old-timey locales such as Darling’s Diner and the hospital room where the Liberty Bell was born.
Photographer Taylor Horne is making a name for himself, with his work gracing the insides of glam-freak magazine and the Philadelphia Inquirer as well as the virtual pages of online publications such as Urban Romance magazine. The Antonelli Institute alumnus infuses his avant-garde style with inspiration from unlikely sources, such as Victorian novels and antique furniture.
Having worked as a fashion model and stylist himself, Taylor has a keen aesthetic eye for each aspect of the photo-shoot process. He lends his expertise to the creation of fashion and modeling portfolios, as well as headshots that can help clients land acting roles, corporate jobs, or especially picky preowned cars.
Joy Pinkney-Davis cut her teeth at a popular photography chain, rising through the ranks until she was eventually training other photographers. By the time she started Just Joy Photography, she had already photographed hundreds of Philadelphia families. Her newfound independence has allowed her to pursue her passion: newborn photography. With her keen eye, she captures serene snapshots of sleeping little ones. But she's also confident taking candid outdoor engagement shots, posed family portraits, and elegant wedding-day photos.
The staff at Tommi Salon and Spa pamper clients in an airy space with third-floor views of the center city. Stylists trim tresses beneath broad windows in the salon, which also offers services from coloring and straightening to ornate wedding-day updos. The spa swathes clients in a luxurious, but minimalist aesthetic. Footbaths glow blue, purple, and green along a sleek white banquette with six pedicure stations. Other services, such as facials, massages, and waxing, take place in four private treatment rooms; aestheticians also create custom-blended treatments inside a dedicated Spa Lab.
