Hi my name is Joanna, but you can call me JoJo. I moved 14 years ago to Chandler from Las Vegas, NV. I have been a cosmetologist for 13 years. For the past 3 years or so, I have been working in a kids only shop that offered special needs appointments.


When covid-19 began I decided to further educate myself on children and individuals with special needs, autism, and disabilities. Through this further education, I learned that the patience, and freedom that is necessary to provide a safe space for all could not be fostered in any other environment than my own salon. The Puzzle Piece was born! The name came to me because I view hair as the last piece to your appearance puzzle, along with the puzzle piece being so widely known in the autism community.

Mom of the Month 

Every month I partner with other small businesses to recognize a special needs mom and let her know that her hard work is not going unnoticed. I, myself, provide a mommy makeover which includes a haircut, deep conditioning treatment and blow-dry style. Plenty of other small businesses donate gift cards/certificates, as well as free items. My main goal through this promotion is to pay tribute to special needs moms because it is too often that their work goes unseen and unappreciated.
