Conversations with Ayano Jinnouchi

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ayano Jinnouchi. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Ayano was born and raised in Kanagawa, Japan. At a young age, she started to learn Hip Hop dance, which turned her interest to the urban culture especially the braiding style. She graduated from Nihon Beauty Academy in Tokyo. She worked at a hair salon in a really competitive area called “Omotesando” for several years. After Salon Experience, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her the other passion which is dance. After many years of being professional dancer, interact with hairstylist on set, She realized that she still have passion for hair. Once she moved on hair career again, started working with many dancers as she already had big connections in the industry.

That all lead to a transition back into hairstyling, from private clients to have Braiding Booth at many festival and shifted to set work.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Since I had eight years of career gap, I had to re-study everything from zero again. Also, style from my country and US is very different. Understanding trends and beauty standards here took me a while.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I specialize in hair styling and braiding styles.
