Jessica Sharpe stylist/musician

Some people struggle to identify their passion, but Jessica Sharpe is busy pursuing two of hers. “I knew right when I graduated high school that I was going straight to beauty school,” she said. And that’s exactly what she did. Since graduating from Leon’s, Sharpe has been working at Dolce Vita, where she is able to make people feel good, look good and be happy. Three months ago, she joined classic rock ‘n’ roll band Jaxon Jill as their lead singer. The band has been around for the better part of a decade and plays at venues throughout the area including Liberty Steakhouse, Southern Roots and Ham’s. “Music I do it for fun and hair is something I’ve always loved,” said Sharpe, who described herself as fun loving and always smiling. Her parents operate Forest Oaks Country Club, and even though she grew up around golf, Sharpe never liked it until more recently. Call 336.852.5582 to schedule an appointment at the salon, or visit for information about the band.
