Many hairstylists choose their careers for reasons similar to Janis’s: she has always had a passion for fashion and beauty and a love of working with people. Only a select few, however continue on to have the profound day-making impact on their clients that Janis does.

In a truly touching moment, a client recently sent Janis flowers and a card letting her know that her appointment had turned around her terrible day. It is fitting, then, that Janis’s favorite part of her job is making people feel beautiful and happy—she is remarkable at doing so!

In addition to the impact she makes at the salon, Janis devotes her time and skills to several charitable causes, including fashion shows benefitting clean water and domestic violence initiatives.

Janis graduated from San Jose City College and has received extensive advanced training from Aveda in both color and cutting, as well as classes with Sally Rogerson and Lupe Voss. In addition to education, she cites her supportive coworkers and beauty bloggers as her greatest inspirations. She specializes in color, long layers, and bobs.  

When she’s not working, you might find Janis at yoga, on a hike, at a concert, or at the park with her Boston Terrier, Baxter, and her fiancé in tow.
