"making the world more beautiful one brow at a time"

Jacqui Tripp

Jacqueline Tripp began her career in the beauty industry 25 years ago as a cosmetologist.  She spent 18 years as a specified hair colorist and hair color educator for many European and United States based brands.  In 2015, she decided to branch out into other areas of the beauty industry, specifically into the field of Permanent Makeup.  This endeavor was so successful that she made the decision to stop doing hair color and similar services and take on Permanent Makeup full time.  She has trained with top artists in many countries such as Ireland, South Africa, United Kingdom, Poland, the USA and many USA based artists from other countries that have brought their advanced techniques from other countries.  In 2019, she added lash extensions to her service menu and launched her own brand of lash extensions and supplies, Lash Tripp.  She supplies other lash artists with everything they need to succeed both online and in store.  Although Jacqueline has been operating as Pretty In Ink for 7 years, she finally opened her own salon in September of 2021, achieving a life-long goal.  Jacqueline takes immense pride in bringing new and innovative techniques to her clients and staff through destination education as well as bringing in guest artists to the salon to educate her peers.  Her passion is in education and is preparing to launch InkWell Studio and Academy, where artists from all over the world can come and learn beginner and advanced techniques in both Permanent Makeup and Lash Extensions.
