Hi, I’m Jessica!

I live in lovely, sunny California, where I attend University of California, Davis. I’m an English major and I tend to see the world through a literary lens.

If there was one word to describe Hairspray and Hemingway and myself, it would be eclectic. In addition to being a serious bibliophile, I love food (eating it, not cooking it) and wine, art (minor in Art History), and of course hairspray. 

I work part-time in a small beauty shop, peddling various hair and skin lotions and potions. Anyone who has worked in retail knows there are juicy stories to be told, and I tell my best stories from the makeup chair.

Hairspray and Hemingway is about finding the beauty, humor, and meaning out of life’s experiences.

So, join me, the academic/beauty-enthusiast, for some Hairspray and Hemingway.
