Owner & Stylist
Jo is a native from Brazil and moved to the United States in 2007 and received her citizenship in 2015. Jo has 11 years experience as a hair stylist and always knew in her heart that she wanted to open her own salon. On April 21, 2016 her dreams came true and Elegancia Salon opened its doors in Rockport, Texas; a small thriving artistic community located on the western side of the Gulf of Mexico, known for its recreational possibilities and mild weather. She has a strong belief in that “learning never ends” and is always seeking new opportunities to better herself while encouraging her stylists’ to do the same. When additional training opportunities arise Jo prefers to sign up and attend as a team so that everyone on the Elegancia team learns together, thus strengthening the bond and team building.
