J.M.B. Transformations…….by Jennifer M. Barge
“I have been coming to Jennifer for over 5 years and I love it! My whole life I hid and pretended to be something I was not. Thanks to Jennifer I am able to be myself in male or female mode , the best experiences have been because of Jennifer !! Karen Leigh client since June 2012
Urgent Update!! 03/24/18.....
After more than 20 years serving the CD/TG community I am taking a break for the next 6 months. I will hopefully be offering services in late Sept. of this year.
I am a bit burnt out, also I lost my love and partner, Holly Boswell last August and I am not at a place where I can offer the great service I once did. I am still shattered by my loss and trying to find my way.
If you are a regular client or have been here before and need my service I will be able to serve you. But I am not taking on new clients. I hope this 6 months will allow me to find myself and my passion, but for now I have lost that.
Good luck on your journey and check back next fall. I will try to create a YouTube page and post a lesson to help folks out.
Thank you to all my regular clients and everyone I have served over the years!!
The Spring is here, and with it many changes. 2017 was a tough year, but we made it through and if you have found this site then I am here to help you with my vast knowledge, great skills and warm heart. I have over 30 years experience in the business of beauty and I am here for you. If you are a return guest then look at my updated service page- I have reduced fall rates for many services so everyone can experience what I offer, so check out the service page!!
I have helped over 8,050 women along on their journey with lessons, make-over's, full transformations, outings for shopping and wigs, girls only lunches, weekend retreats, couples counseling and more. I have lived the life since an early age and am happy to share my experiences with you. I am a makeup artist, photographer, a chef, a fashionista and also a trans woman just like you. If you are a recreational C/D or a girl living the life I know I can help you!!!
The reason you have found this site is you are searching for a safe space where you can come to explore your truth. Many times we are blocked by the image in the mirror and we need to see our self as "our self" for the first time in order to continue to grow. That is why I am here for you- to assist you. I am here to hold your hand for that first time going out in public and out to lunch. Or a makeup lesson to bring out the beauty that you do not see. I am here.
Imagine learning the "do's" and "don'ts" about makeup, fashion and hair/wigs? Imagine having your own stylist help you by doing your makeup & hair prior to going out to women’s clothing stores to try on outfits.
Just think of the knowledge you will take home with you after a 4 hour hands on makeup lesson! Just think of the empowerment you will feel as you leave with the tools to recreate the look that was taught to you! Whether it is a simple makeup application, a 4 hour hands on lesson or a 3-7 day “gender retreat” I am here to serve you in a safe and supportive space!
I am an award winning makeup artist who has a reputation for my professionalism and my vast skills in regard to makeup and fashion. An out & proud transwoman I know the true needs of my clients!
Located near Queer-friendly Asheville NC, the goal of JMB Transformations is to provide a safe and supportive environment for our guests. We are a gender free space that allows all people to experiment with any expression they wish.
