Bianca's ears play almost as vital a role in her hairstyling as her hands. She believes in tailoring every haircut to her client's wants and goals, and to that end she begins each service with a consultation so she can listen to their requests. That way, she can bring every woman's, man's, and child's dreams to a reality and craft a hairstyle that embellishes the features that make them distinctive and unique. To add dimension and refinement, she offers coloring and keratin treatments that smooth out frizzy hair, and can also take care of unruly facial hair with waxing treatments.

Q&A with Jessica, Owner
Fashionable hairstyles are constantly changing. How do you keep up-to-date on popular trends?
I am constantly learning new braid techniques through seminars and paid videos to keep up with new trends. I host a blog that provides free vital information on haircare, skincare, and nutritional needs to help clients upkeep their beauty regimens.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Soon to come to Braids by Jessica is a more varied stock of extension hair for styles so that clients don't have to bring their own extension hair, a Mary Kay
cosmetic inventory, and an additional braid assistant to provide for a
faster one-stop shop experience for your haircare, makeup, and extension
hair selection needs.
Do you do natural hairstyles? If so, what services do you offer?
Cornrows, dreadlocs, flat twist, kinky twist, and individual braids/plaits, all with or without extensions, as well as tree braids, crochet braids, senegalese twist, fishtail braids, and box braids, all with extensions.

G Patton Salon's stylist Jessica Abrahante specializes in giving hair the perfect color. Of course, over her 25 years in the hair industry she's picked up some other tricks as well, including Bumble and Bumble Cutting Classes certification, Wella Color certification, and a creative cutting and coloring course diploma from Toni & Guy in London. Deftly wielding her scissors, she refashions shaggy mops into chic styles or clips away that one lock that keeps getting in a customer's eyes as a warning for the others. Color services include revamping single-process treatments as well as more subtle highlighting, adding eye-catching texture to 'dos.
