Introducing Jen Cardaci

Jen is a curly hair guru in training, restaurant connoisseur, cat lover, and Jersey Girl to the core. She was raised in Howell, NJ and currently lives in Long Branch, just up the coast from Asbury. Jen had a change of heart about her career path after losing her father a few years ago. Following her heart and passion for makeup and hair felt like a more familiar and inspiring plan. She started off in the world of makeup and quickly developed a love of hair. She’s currently finishing up an apprenticeship at Lock and Shade right here in Asbury Park.

The owner of the salon, Bianca styled Jen’s incredible hair for the Hand Project Shoot. When I asked Jen what her favorite thing is about Asbury, she shared that she loves the vibe of community. She says you can just be who you are and everyone is appreciated for their own unique style.

When I first met Jen I was struck by her porcelain skin, gorgeous red, curly hair and her kind demeanor. It’s not surprising that Jen told me she’s very empathetic and always tries to see the best in everyone. When not at the salon, you’ll find Jen with her tuxedo cat named Lola or dining at some of her favorite local spots like Brando's Citi Cucina, Palscal and Sabine or Cardinal Provisions. She’s also dreaming up her solo backpacking trip through Europe.

Jen was so natural in front of the camera... work it, gurrrl! Jen loves how CMD’s big, classic hoops complement her style. She’d also be quick to don our stackable rings.

I’m excited to bump into Jen around town rocking some CMD and hopefully grab a meal with her sometime soon. Thank you, Jen - you’re a gem.
