In high school, Jane loved getting her fellow student actors ready for theater performances. She loved learning new styles in both hair and makeup so much that she interned at a local salon for a year and a half while still in school. After graduation, hair became her career path when Jane entered beauty school. She met Jen, the owner of Pinup Salon, while she was still in beauty school. What started with a conversation about Pinup Salon’s new sign and logo turned into a gig styling hair and makeup for Pinup clients! Jane has now been doing hair styling and makeup for more than six years.
As a Pinup Salon stylist, Jane loves connecting with clients in a smaller environment, taking them out of the busy hectic salon environment. She enjoys working with creative, like-minded people who are looking for a relaxing salon experience that results in them feeling and looking their best.
Jane is certified in Pravana Chromasilk and Vivids Color, DevaCut for Deva Curl, and Pintura Color & Balayage from DevaCurl. She is also certified to do Great Length’s bonded and tape-in extensions, and vintage styling with certification from Rockabilly Ruby’s Beauty School. In addition, Jane also has taken advanced training in American Crew’s men’s cuts, Young Blood Makeup bridal application, specialty Pravana Vivids color techniques, and Unite’s dry styling and haircutting.
Her passion is to do hair treatments that involve working with different textures. Sometimes, that means working with people who lack texture and movement and finding the right wave treatment for them, or educating them on how to work with their own natural texture. Other times, Jane helps people fix texture problems with placement of a few extensions, for added thickness or for a pop of color. Overall, her favorite thing to do is help people become REALLY happy with themselves, and with their hair.
Mermaid hair is a fun hair treatment that Jane loves. She’s excited about the newer widespread trend for vivid color, and enjoys helping her clients achieve their best inner pastel rainbow – or oil slick beams of light.
Aside from her fun work at Pinup Salon, Jane loves going to live music events, cooking with friends and family, doing camping cook outs away from the city, or escaping to the different hot springs on her checklist. She also loves restoring and collecting vintage furniture and random home goods, and has a newfound knack for building vintage car models. Her two cats are her babies, and she shares a special gift with Mollie, for telling you what celebrity your pet looks like.
