In an exceptional display of talent, Jalia Pettis emerged as the victor in the Denman Stage Star USA. As a result of her remarkable achievement, Pettis will represent the US in the upcoming Global Competition, solidifying her status as a leading figure in the beauty industry.

The US hair community is elated by Pettis’ triumph, as she’s been a force to be reckoned with regarding her skills as a makeup artist for the last three years. “I am deeply honored and grateful for the opportunity to represent the US on a global stage. I get to flex my muscles as a hair stylist, which I don’t take lightly, so I am spending the next few months preparing for that global stage,” said Pettis. “This win means so much to me and I plan to bring it!”  

By winning the Denman Stage Star USA, Pettis has earned a coveted spot and will be afforded the opportunity to showcase her work at Salon International. In addition, she will go head-to-head against talents representing Asia, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. This exceptional opportunity will not only allow Pettis to showcase her skills on an international platform but also contribute to the recognition and growth of the hair industry in the US.
