What is Jesseca Dupart’s net worth?
According to multiple online reports, Jesseca Dupart’s net worth is estimated at $5 million as of February 2023.
What does Jessica Dupart do for a living?
The biggest part of Jessica Dupart’s net worth comes from her earnings as founder and CEO of Kaleidoscope Hair Products. And like a lot of self-made businesswomen, Dupart had a humble beginning. She first entered the world of cosmetology as a hairstylist at RoJes Barber Shop & RoJes Beauty Salon. After working there for more than six years, she finally decided to branch out and start her own small business.
In 2013, using all her life savings, Dupart opened her own salon called Kaleidoscope Hair Studio. Unfortunately, the salon burned down later that same year, leaving Dupart devastated. She, however, didn’t let the incident discourage her from starting all over again. In 2014, with courage and creativity, she reopened her salon and launched her own line, Kaleidoscope Hair Products.
Dupart continued doing hair at her salon even when her products were grossing six figures a month. But soon after she saw her first million dollars in 2017, she retired as a stylist and focused on expanding the reach of her products.
“I was a hairstylist for four years,” she said on Breakfast Club Power in April 2019. “I decided to dip into hair products … I was able to make well over 15 million dollars in a few years.”
How much is Kaleidoscope worth?
According to Ventured.com, Kaleidoscope has an annual revenue of $12 million. Its products are currently available for purchase online at iluvcolors.com and at the Sally Beauty website, as well as in-store at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, and other retailers across the United States.
Jessica Dupart also makes money in real estate management. Owning several commercial properties, Dupart founded her real estate agency, Kaleidoscope Realty, in 2020.
Jessica Dupart’s net worth is also boosted by her earnings as a public motivational speaker and author. In March 2019, her book When the Miracle Drops: How Instagram Helped Turn a Quick Fix into a Million-Dollar Product was published. In the book, Dupart candidly shares her journey to building a multi-million dollar business while overcoming adversity and finding strength in her family and prayer.
Priced at $24.99, the book is available for purchase on Amazon.

To get an estimate of Jesseca Dupart’s net worth, her earnings from sponsored posts and brand endorsements on her different social media platforms were also taken into account.
