Jennie Roberts was born in Ghana, West Africa, and moved to Manchester aged three. She spent most of her teenage years growing up through the ‘Madchester’ music scene, which proved to be heavily influential in her future career. Subsequently, she started her career working in the music industry where she continues to have an impact working with artists such as Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Jessie Ware and Ella Eyre.
By the age of 12 Jennie had decided that she wanted to study hair at Vidal Sassoon and by the age of 18 was working and receiving training in their salons.
That was the start of an enviable freelance career to date working with such reputable photographers as Juergen Teller, Annie Liebovitz, Rankin, Lorenzo Agius and Bryan Adams on campaigns and publications including V Magazine, Vanity Fair, InStyle, The Telegraph and Glamour. Commercially Jennie was signed by haircare brand Ojon in 2014 as their Treatment Technician.
Jennie’s no nonsense and straightforward approach has led to her becoming regularly requested by A-listers from Willem Dafoe, Leonardo Di Caprio, Idris Elba & Chiwetel Ejiofor to Thandie Newton, Sophie Cookson & Kristen Scott Thomas working on world tour press tour, junkets and red carpet events.
