Hi, I’m Janet. I’ve been a stylist since 2000. Education is a high priority for me, which is why I am always looking to further my learning by attending a minimum of four classes a year. I feel that it is super important to grow in order to provide my guest the best and latest styles.
I knew I always wanted to educate so in 2016 I had the honor of attending Eufora YOU Academy in San Diego, CA. I attended 3 different courses which got me to be a color educator. I now can travel to other salons to educate and introduce them to our color line. Color is a passion of mine; I feel every guest needs to be customized to their own color. I love being creative but always listening to your needs and concerns therefore giving you the best color! I’ve taken multiple advance color classes and expect to continue my education that way I can offer the best experience.
I love working with textured/curly hair! Most people who have textured hair hate their curls and I believe it’s because they haven’t been educated on how to wear their curls or take care of them by using the right products and having the right cut. Whether you need to enhance your curls (by adding curls or perming to even it out) or performing a keratin smoothing treatment to relax them, I can help.
I also enjoy doing men’s cuts; I’ve worked at a couple barber shops in Las Vegas and was mentored by a great barber where I learned a lot about men’s cuts. I feel a lot of men now days are looking for more than just your traditional cut; they also want an experience so I offer steam towels as well as a scalp massage during the wash.
I am currently running our apprentice program here at Athena. I really enjoy this because now I am able to be a mentor and help them to achieve their goals, be successful, and hopefully be a mentor to someone else.
