Jocelyn began doing hair in 2006. She trained at the Aveda Institute, Washington, D.C. and continued with an apprenticeship at Aveda's flagship salon in SoHo. She then found her niche in smaller boutique salons in Brooklyn and has been steadily growing a loyal clientele. She enjoys natural looks--embracing low maintenance haircuts, and hair color that enhances her clients' natural tones. She loves subtle, soft highlights and rich brunettes. When she is not at Danka Panka, Jocelyn enjoys reading and spending time in the city parks or on the beach at Coney Island. She lives in Fort Greene with her husband and young daughter.
