- Jennifer Posillico
As licensed Cosmetologist in the early 90's I began my career in a prominent salon in NYC, working as a Colorist/ Hairstylist after six years I was moved up to management overseeing their two locations. As a working manager my career flourished. I decided to begin my own business for Bridal Parties, as my business grew I received several awards, and recognition for my work including Long Island Weddings, vendor of the year and I was featured in Martha Stewarts Weddings magazine
I was excited to begin my teaching career at FBS and eager to share my knowledge with future cosmetologist. As a former cosmetology instructor of mine inspired me, it has been a lifelong dream to become an instructor.
