Living a healthy and clean beauty lifestyle has changed founder Jenna Dashnaw’s life for the better.

Suffering from autoimmune disease, and years of chronic fatigue it wasn’t until she discovered the world of health and beauty combined that truly set her free. Wellness inspiration has always been her passion, while beauty was her career, so she merged the two together and j.bellezza was born.

As a Beauty stylist and Certified Health Specialist she truly knows the meaning of “beauty from within” with Years of extensive research and her own health challenges have brought her to this new and exciting beauty and wellness concept.
