Jessica Gilbert (senior stylist)
A passion for all things beauty guided me into the industry in 2010. Liquid Hair Salon has brought me growth, success, friendships, and opportunities to work alongside amazing artists. Also, introducing me to all concepts of the “Aveda way” has given me tools for not only behind the chair, but behind the scenes at Paris and New York Fashion Weeks. Being inspired by not only the beauty of people, but the world around me made it easy to call Aveda a lifestyle. Not only do I love my craft, I am determined to impact the lives of others. My precise attention to detail keeps my creativity flowing and a smile on my face. Hopefully yours, too!

Being a certified Aveda hair artist and certified makeup artist, my craft allows me to express myself while helping others look and feel their very best.

Senior Stylist, Education Director, Manager
Francisco Distelcamp (senior stylist, education director, manager)
I’m very Frank, no pun intended. While I do love hair, I love the connection I build with my clients along the way. My goal is for each client to leave with a look they love and can achieve at home. If you only look good when you leave my chair then I have failed you. Being a resident at New York Fashion Week and even Paris Fashion Week has given me the tools I need to make sure that never happens. All this fits the Aveda lifestyle, which is something I’ve grown up with my whole life being the son of Lilly and William (Liquid Hair Salon’s owners). Aveda plays a huge role in saving the world we live in. I am an avid snowboarder and kayaker, so of course this just makes me love them more. My dream is to grow the business my parents built a very long time ago and to build it with the Aveda name right by its side. I hope to become the best team leader possible for Liquid, because that is exactly how I feel about them. Family.
