Jordy’s love of makeup led him from his hometown in Vancouver to New York City back in 2003. His big break into the world of beauty came when he landed an assistant position as a hairstylist to Kevin Mancuso. With no hair experience Jordy relied on his personality and quick thinking and remained with Kevin for 8 months. Years later Kevin discovered Jordy had become a makeup artist and asked Jordy to collaborate with him on the Nexxus Salon hair care campaign.
