The OG Cinnamon Girl, Jody Stoski
After earning her Business Diploma from SAIT and then studying at Canada’s #1 Beauty School, Blanche Macdonald, Jody Stoski’s career began as a Professional Makeup Artist freelancing as “Cinnamon Girl” in film, fashion, print, television, and weddings.
Through makeup artistry Jody learned about permanent makeup and cosmetic tattooing and earned her certification from BioTouch Institute under Lisa Lam. Trained as a doctor, Lisa treated medical cases with tattooing, and invited Jody to work closely with her. Jody was recognized for her unique brow stroke technique that provided natural looking brows for alopecia patients and realized her true passion was not necessarily just makeup, but helping people feel confident in their own skin!
Jody then connected with Dr. Linda Dixon of Kolorsource, a medical physician working in cosmetic tattooing. She was invited to apprentice to further her skills in scar camouflage, 3D areola tattooing, and scalp and hairline micropigmentation, and it was at this time she opened her own clinic, Cinnamon Girl Clinic.
After treating over 10,000 paramedical and cosmetic patients through Cinnamon Girl Clinic, Jody is recognized as an industry leader, and has served as a board member of the American Academy of Micropigmentation. She has partnered with doctors and plastic surgeons, and offers information sessions at local hospitals regarding the various options available to those recovering from injury or trauma.
