Jen Atkin is a career hair stylist, beauty columnist, and entrepreneur. Her clients include Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian, Katy Perry, Chrissy Teigen, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Jessica Alba, and Jennifer Lopez. With over 3M followers on social media, she's been called "The Most Influential Hairstylist in the World," by the New York Times. She started her own haircare line, OUAI, in 2016, a curated multi-use line of products and supplements that work hand in hand to help women achieve hair health from the inside and out. She's also the founder of ManeAddicts.com, a digital magazine that gives readers access to the world's top hairstylists, featuring the best products on the market, and instructional how to's.
"Whether she's writing about her extremely random life (you'll know
what I mean when you read it!), the chaos of juggling multiple
clients, or effortlessly navigating social media, Jen Atkin is
smart, incisive, deservedly-confident-yet-uniquely-humble and real.
This is a fun read from an author (my friend!) who clearly wants
all her readers to know their worth, lift each other up, and feel
like rock stars. It's inspiring without being earnest, witty but
with a big heart. An inspiring guide for how to go from dreamer to
do-er, from someone who's been there, done that and wrote the book
on it." -- Chrissy Teigen, New York Times bestselling
author of Cravings and Cravings: Hungry for
"As one of Jen Atkin's least famous clients, I was delighted to read her clever, thoughtful and hilarious book and see she did not out me as "an insane diva with bad extensions." If you want to start a successful business, and do it in style, get this book and learn from its wise and empowering lessons." -- Mindy Kaling, New York Times bestselling author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and Why Not Me?
"I've had a front-row seat to Jen Atkin's transformation from salon receptionist to influencer, entrepreneur, and all-around boss. Though she's living the life that dreams are made of, she's never lost sight of where she came from and what it took to achieve those dreams. She always manages to keep her feet and heart grounded and her generosity and kindness are unparalleled. In Blowing My Way to the Top, Jen's street-smart hustle, and IQ and EQ will inspire readers everywhere to fulfill their wildest dreams, just as she has." -- Jessica Alba, New York Times bestselling author of The Honest Life and founder of The Honest Company
"Confident, hard-working, savvy, and willing to learn from and lift up everyone around her? Those are just a few of the reasons Jen Atkin is at the top of her game, and I'm in awe of all of them. Lucky for us, she's willing to share the secrets of her success in this candid, insightful memoir. I loved it!" -- Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of Get Your Sh*t Together
"Jen Atkin has been my go-to for advice for over a decade-she gives it to you straight but always wants what's best for you. She's also an inspiring example of someone who chased all her professional dreams and, as she conquered each goal, kept dreaming bigger. The result of that hard work is the awesome OUAI brand, the Mane Addicts platform, and now this insightful and laugh-out-loud book. Reading it feels like a phone call with your best girlfriend." -- Khloe Kardashian, New York Times bestselling author of Strong Looks Better Naked
