Jennifer Reinholt - Owner, Stylist
Hi! I’m Jennifer Reinholt. I have been a cosmetologist for nearly 9 years. In October of 2001 I graduated from RD Hairstyling College and followed that up by working at Hair For You Salon for the last 8-½ years. In 2010, I achieved my dream of owning my very own salon....
I grew up admiring my aunt who is also a cosmetologist. She was the one who bought my first mannequin head when I was 12 years old. That mannequin now has very short hair! As a teenager, I stayed with her some summers and was able to go to work with her. She and her staff allowed me to answer phones, fold towels, hand the stylists perm rods and the like. This was such an awesome experience for me and it gave me an even greater passion to pursue this profession in the hopes of one day owning my own salon.
Express Yourself Salon came about after quite extensive searching. One day, my mom and I were driving down Main Street in Mandan to scope out a possible location when we happened to see a For Lease sign being painted on the window of what is now, Express Yourself Salon. I stopped and asked the woman painting the sign whom I should speak to about leasing the space and was offered the chance to stop in and take a look around. Once inside, I’m pretty sure my Mom thought I was crazy! But, as I looked around the rugged space I saw the potential it possessed and could see my dream becoming a reality. I prayed about it and told God that if it wasn’t meant to be to put up a roadblock. There were no obstacles! Everything fell right into place just as if it were meant to be.
I’ve had some struggles, but I’ve always believed that everything happens for a reason. I wouldn’t have my beautiful daughter and my wonderful life if this was not true. I’ve been blessed with a wonderful support system of family, friends and a great boyfriend to help me succeed in fulfilling my dream. My goal was to create a warm relaxing atmosphere where everyone is welcome: a positive Christian environment. Welcome to Express Yourself Salon!
We came upon the great opportunity to buy a building to move the salon into after circumstances changed at the old location.. As before everything fell into place.. With lots of help and long hours we were able to present our new location.
I enjoy my profession and feel so blessed for having such wonderful clients and a huge support system.. I am so thankful for such an amazing husband, daughter and family.
At the beginning of this journey I would've never believed how far I'd be after 14 years!
Brittney Swensrud - Stylist
Hi, My name is Shay Bunnell. I am a licensed cosmetologist from Mandan, North Dakota. Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved doing hair. From doing my own hair to doing friends and family, you could say I have always been a natural. Right after graduating highschool, I pursued my passion of beauty and moved to Fargo to attend Josef's School of Hair Design. After completing about 700 hours there, I decided to move back home and transfered to The Hair Academy where I completed the rest of my 1800 hours and graduated. I specialize in haircutting, coloring, waxing, manicures, pedicures, and spray tans. It gives me great joy to serve the community that I grew up in helping them become beautiful every single day.
