Sweet graduated in 1974 from Miami University with a degree in history and education. The following year she opened her first salon in Ohio and in the mid 1980’s, she opened a second salon with her sister. In 1987, Jean sold her salons after becoming immersed in editorial work in Madrid, Spain followed by a career working in Chicago, Miami and New York for eight years. As a freelance hairstylist and makeup artist, she worked on fashion shoots for several years until mid-1990, which was when she started working in various marketing and sales capacities for fashion designers.

Over the years, Sweet has worked with a multitude of photographers and started retouching photographs along with creating web sites when she was still doing hairstyling and makeup for shoots. When the world of digital photography began to surge, Sweet became enamored with the digital process and inspired to buy her own camera equipment in the fall of 2007 to become a photographer. Sweet has since been published with her photography in various national and international beauty trade publications including American Salon, Modern Salon, Launchpad, HOT by Hair’s How, Peluquerias International, Estetica and Dark Beauty.
