Roanni Castro joined The Groom House with over 20 years of prior experience in the hair grooming industry. Her work history includes training with Jacques Dessange and Jean Louis David. And with lessons from these masters, she got her skills in French Cutting Technique.

Roanni says she developed her passion for men’s grooming while she was employed at John Allan’s salon for seven years. Now that she is with Groom House, her passion has escalated to stupendous heights, and she is implementing her artistic vision on clients. She added an extraordinary set of barbering skills that Groom House had needed for a long time.

Aveda trained, specializing in men’s haircuts, Jenessa is very passionate about what she does and her 18 plus years in the business are apparent in her approach. She is a perfectionist in the best way. Jenessa believes that individuality and attention to detail are the keys to customizing styles for each of her clients.

She takes the time to listen to her clients and to show them what will work best based on their hair type. She will educate you on how to recreate your look at home.

Originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, Jenessa is a die-hard Packers fan…so feel free to bring up football while you’re in the chair. After completing her degree at Aveda, she moved to New York with a different path in mind. While finishing up her BA at NYU, she started working at a barbershop focusing solely on cutting. Though a barbershop wasn’t her speed, the art of cutting was. Jenessa found instant gratification whenever she picked up her scissors; creating her version of a masterpiece each time she cut. She found a men’s salon that catered to her passion honing her scissor-over-comb skills. Jenessa cultivated her own clientele and began training new stylists. After 7 years in New York, Jenessa found her niche with men’s short hair and was ready to take the next step to go out on her own. That’s how Groom House came to fruition.
