Most hairdressers can’t afford multiple luxury homes in multiple states, but then again most hairdressers aren’t Jen Atkin.
The haircare entrepreneur and mega-influencer has long been the go-to stylist for many of Hollywood’s elite, with an enviable client list that includes Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Chrissy Teigen and Gigi and Bella Hadid, though Atkin remains perhaps best-known for her longtime association with the Kardashian-Jenner family.
Beyond that, Atkin’s social media savviness — she now has 4.5 million followers on Instagram alone — has helped springboard her success as a multifaceted entrepreneur. Today, she owns digital hair-centric magazine ManeAddicts.com, she’s authored a memoir entitled “Blowing My Way to the Top,” and she’s the founder of haircare brand OUAI, which sells a range of popular fragrances, serums, supplements and candles.
OUAI has been critically successful, and It’s also made Atkin tremendously rich. In December, Proctor & Gamble announced their intention to acquire the company, which boasts a 2022 projected sales volume of more than $80 million, though financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Last year, Atkin and her longtime husband Mike Rosenthal, a fashion photographer, bought a $4.5 million home in Los Angeles. And in the past few months, they’ve done it twice more, shelling out $4.6 million for a sleek contemporary in Seattle, and also picking up a luxury home in Ivins, Utah, about eight miles northwest of St. George. (Atkin, 42, was adopted at birth and raised by a Mormon family in Utah.)
Atkin clearly has a fondness for sleek modern architecture, as was first seen in her L.A. homes and confirmed by her Utah and Washington purchases. Located on the shores of Lake Washington, the Seattle house was designed by architect Peter Cohan and offers five bedrooms and 4.5 baths in about 5,400 square feet.
