Creative stylist, Jacqueline Howe

Setting up her business in New Hamburg has shown Jacqueline that in a small community, there's no shortage of help.

How long have you been in business, and how many employees do you have?
I've been in business since 2012 and there are two employees.

Were you born in New Hamburg?
No, but I chose New Hamburg to set up my business.

What do you love most about New Hamburg?
The people in this town are so friendly and very helpful. Everyone wants to bring you into the fold of the community and will do their best to help you get involved. There is no shortage of help!

Do you belong to any service clubs or do volunteer work?
My family happily participates in the local Terry Fox Run, as well as showing support for our local charities. Lending a helping hand for the New Hamburg Lioness fashion show for hair is one of my favourites. Some of my wacky designs have ended up being published online! (The official Terry Fox Run Facebook page.)

Do you have any family in New Hamburg?
I live on the outskirts of Kitchener with my four children, and I moved there from a town in southern Ontario around 2008.

My passion for design and style lead me to a larger city like Kitchener to pursue my career in design and hairstyling. My love of the area has kept me here in search of a true place to call home.

New Hamburg has been a great place for us to grow roots! My oldest daughter currently attends Waterloo-Oxford high school. I am very thankful to have been working here in town for the last few years, and it's been very rewarding. I truly enjoy that I have made a place for us here in the community and have the ability to teach my children hard work and dedication. Giving my oldest daughter the responsibility to get involved in the business has been a great learning experience, and clients are very eager to see her learn. We couldn't imagine a better place to be growing as a family.

Which aspect of your business do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy meeting new people and providing them the ability to feel good about themselves. It's an honour to be able to see clients and families on their journey, and a great pleasure to be a part of their lives as they get married, have babies and overcome adversity.

I enjoy many different aspects of design and colour, and apply it differently to every client that comes through the door. Seeing people happy and knowing I had a hand in that is so rewarding.


Another very happy client.

Family fun!
