Bridgewater Salon Offers Styling, Color and Much More


BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Hi. I am Jessica Kawalec. I am the owner of Jessie’s Hair Illusions. Welcome to my salon. I was born in Lima, Peru, and I received my certification in cosmetology in 1994. In Peru, I opened my own salon, which I operate until I immigrated to the United States. After coming to America, I have worked in various salons in New Jersey as a hair stylist and makeup artist.

Over the years, I have improved my skills and continued my education by becoming certified as a cosmetology instructor and by taking advanced classes in hair styling and coloring. I taught Cosmetology at the Salon Professional Academy before returning to my roots in hair styling. I have also received training and certifications in eyelash extensions, hair extensions and the selection and fitting of wigs.

My approach to hair styling is different than what you would experience at other salons. I focus on helping you achieve the style most suitable for you. Come in with a picture, an idea, a vision, and I will work with you to turn it into a reality. Whether you just want to improve your current style or are looking to completely transform your image, I will achieve the look you desire.
