A typical day in my life includes…

crazy town. I do my hot yoga at 6am so I’m able to get my kids ready for school in a peaceful manner, they are out the door and I’m already to work. I usually tackle my emails first, then I usually have phone conferences or team meetings, then I do some social media on Confessions of a Hairstylist and then go into the salon to create content and take clients in between. After, I pick up my kids, head home and cook dinner. One way I find balance is in my schedule. I have to do yoga to get my mindset and it’s really important to me that we eat dinner as a family to catch with the kids about their day.

I was born…

in Walla Walla, Washington.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

sunsets. As a matter of fact, my company AIIR has a lot of airy textures intermixed in our social and many of those images are mine taken of the Arizona sky during a sunrise or sunset.

I’m listening to…

Odesza and I get a little thug before work calls to old 2000s hip hop.

My family…

is my number one priority. Everything I do is for a better future for them. I had a hard life growing up and I want to provide the most for my children and be a good role model for them in the hope that they know they can fulfill their dreams one day.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Bettencourt Meyers, a Loreal heiress.

One thing I cannot live without…

chips and salsa and bananas and peanut butter. Ha! I’m vegetarian and I eat a banana and peanut butter every day.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a child psychologist or a hairstylist. I feel like I’m both these days.

I’m inspired by…

myself. I know that sounds cocky, but I don’t really know why I am the way I am. Always wanting more and moving through each challenge with grace.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

bullying and judging. I wish it didn’t exist. While a lot of people say it helps others grow tough skin it forever leaves a scar. I have been a victim of cyber-bulling for the last 2 years and finally had to take legal action. It took a lot to get over it.

The perfect day would be…

a day with no mega issues to navigate through with AIIR. I know it’s growing pains but come one! Something always happens.

My first job…

a gymnastic teacher for little kids.

My favorite escape…

is music. I love to zone out to music.

My life…

is pretty awesome. I’m thankful for everyone that has come in and out of my life.

I’m currently working on…

building AIIRs team. I carefully handpick people. They have to prove that they’re driven to work with AIIR.

Always…

be respectful.

Never…

judge others, as you don’t know what they are going through or where they are coming from.

Favorite Quote…

“Creativity is more important than knowledge.”

Biggest Dream…

to become a female VC after I grow AIIR large enough and sell it.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who think they know it all.

More about Jenny and AIIR Professional…

AIIR Professional, an innovative line of styling products infused with precious gemstones and natural botanicals, launched online and in select salons this fall, and will be available nationwide through SalonCentric beginning January 2020.

Created by pioneering hair artist and blogger Jenny Strebe (of Confessions of a Hairstylist fame), AIIR seeks to elevate the hair industry with high-performance products that support holistic well-being.

After having her second child in 2013, Jenny found peace and balance in yoga, exercise and a more natural lifestyle. But she quickly realized that the big-name products she was using behind the chair didn’t reflect her wellness lifestyle or values. This was the spark of inspiration for AIIR.

“For centuries, people around the world have found positive effects, both tangible and intangible, from earth’s resources,” said Jenny, AIIR’s founder and CEO. “I selected key elements that naturally pair with hair innovation and created AIIR Professional.”

Every AIIR product combines vibrant plant-based elements with healing crystals to energize and amplify your hairstyling. No more noxious fume clouds from harsh, chemical-laced styling sprays. The modern consumer wants sustainable, ethically made and health-conscious products that make her look and feel amazing— and AIIR delivers.

As the first-ever line of crystal-infused haircare products, AIIR gives edgy, fashion-forward salon guests and stylists radiant hair and positive energy.
