Janel has been doing my hair for years now. She is truly the best!! I like to change up my hair now and then going from blonde to brunette and all I have to say is I want it lighter or darker and Janel works her magic and I leave happy as always.

Janel did my hair for my wedding and I literally didn’t want to undo the hair style at the end of the night! I’m still obsessing over the look a year later! She was so fun to work with and made planning so much easier for me as a bride! Very talented and highly recommended!

Janel was referred to me when I moved here. I was a nervous wreck, trusting a new person to do my hair! Janel not only is a treasure to talk too, she is very schooled in her art. I love my hair color and her!

I’m so grateful that my sister refered me to Janel! I love her technique, she is so personable, and truly an artist! I love going to get my “Hair Therapy” every 6-8 weeks! I look forward to sitting in her chair, forgetting about all the crazy stuff going on in my life and just relaxing and enjoying conversation with Janel and of course some amazing new hair!! I highly recommend her work and her as a person you need to make apart of your life!

Janel has been doing my hair since I was in high school- from up-dos at prom to coloring my hair, she can do it all! Not only is she extremely talented, but she is friendly & easy to talk to. She goes above and beyond so you always feel beautiful after you leave. I am lucky to not only call her my hair stylist, but my friend!

Janel is by far best hairstylist around. She is always traveling all over the country to learn about new techniques and will leave you with even better than what you came in for! Wouldn’t go to anybody else.

Janel did my hair in an up-do for my wedding a few weeks ago, and I can't say enough good things about her and the work she does. As someone planning from out of town, it was difficult to manage so many details from afar. She was quick to respond and managed to make me feel stress-free about doing my trial the week before my wedding. She's an absolute perfectionist and takes so much pride in her work. How she did my hair was exactly as I'd imagined and I couldn't have been happier with it. She truly helped make my day so special and I would highly recommend her to all the brides out there! -April H

Janel has been doing my hair for years now, from all over color, to partial high lights, to hair donations..shes done it all! She even waxes my boyfriends out of control eye brows (He'd kill me if he knew I told anyone). Janel does a great job and believe me, I don't trust just anyone with my hair. She is great to talk to when she is doing your hair, has great ideas when I come in and just say I need a change and her prices are so reasonable! I highly recommend Janel for any of her services! Janel, I wish you nothing but success as you start your new journey! Can't wait get these out of control roots done! Lisa

I don't think I have ever had a better haircut than the ones I recieve from Janel. She has a great eye for style, which is obvious from the moment you meet her. Beyond her masterful haircutting skills, she listens to what you want, helps you to make a decision, and has fun while she is working. I normally hate making small talk while I'm at a salon, but Janel is easy to talk to and far from pretentious. She simply knows how to make a client look good and how to keep them comfortable as she is working her magic.
