If you ask Judith what got her into hair, you’ll get a surprising story. Before graduating high school she thought doing hair and makeup would be a great way to earn $$$ while in college. Her mind was set on becoming an attorney. Well, that didn’t happen! She fell in love with hair and learning all things beauty the moment she set foot into Pivot Point (beauty school), and her passion was solidified when she trained at Vidal Sassoon in hair cutting and chemical services in both the Chicago and London salons.
Judith brings more than 27+ years of experience, 22+ of it teaching. Her precision cutting, dimensional coloring and creative hairdresser techniques are what people from all over come for. Using the elements of art and science, she creates an individualized look that blends with one’s personality and lifestyle. Judith is a regular at advanced education, taking classes throughout the year to keep up to date on all the latest trends and techniques then brings that knowledge to her staff. This is the primary reason she created the Judith B Academy and educates at different salons through Illinois and the Chicagoland Area. Judith holds certificates in many educational specialties including: Hair Cutting Master, Hair Color Master, Extensions Specialist, Ouidad Curl Expert. She also freelances for talent agencies and photographers.
“I wish there were more of me, so I could more.” You often hear Judith say that because her brain is in non stop mode and there isn’t enough hours in the day to be supermom to her three children, and run a successful business, plus be involved in the organizations she loves. Thank goodness she has an amazing husband, family, and staff that helps her achieve her goals and keeps the engine running. You can also find her volunteering or working with different charities and organizations including, local ones like: The American Diabetes Association.
