Jorgen Larsen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Niels Christian Larsen and Anna Marie Dusine Schmidt Larsen. He had one older brother, Frank Larsen, who has previously passed in Las Vegas. In 1959, Jorgen was 23 years old when he moved to Chicago to part-own his first salon, Temple Coiffuries, speaking little to no English. Working in the salon and greeting his clients is how Jorgen was able to learn English fluently. In 1972 he purchased his first condo in Phoenix, Arizona, and opened up second salon on 7th street, Salon Denmark. He worked as a stylist here for many years until he found his new passion for photography. A man with multiple talents and drive, Jorgen was running Salon Denmark and Jorgen Larsen Photography Studio up to the year 2019. Even to this day, Salon Denmark is still successfully running by a majority of the staff that started with him many years ago. Salon Denmark was more of a family to Jorgen, and today he would say that he has 22 kids with all different mothers.
