MEET THE TEAM
Janet learned at an early age the importance of loving you are, doing what you love, and following your dreams. As a young girl, Janet experimented with color, fashion, hair, makeup and loved seeing how quickly one transformed. Janet was certain this was the career she wanted to pursue. In early 2000, Janet began her professional career by training at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. Her passion flourished as she began combining love for art and design with her love for connecting with people. After training, she began apprenticing at a Los Angeles high end salon for 3 years, always eager to learn more. Janet quickly learned her own craft and practiced techniques to transform her now, loyal clientele.
Soon after she moved to New York City and trained with the top hair and makeup artists in the industry with MAC Cosmetics and Redken. She has worked 5 seasons of New York Fashion Week, 1 season on Project Runway and continued to add brands to her growing client list including Armani Exchange, Neutrogena, and Pantene. Janet currently resides in Los Angeles specializing in wedding hair & makeup and the owner of Be.NYLA . Her work has been featured on Brides Magazine, CBS, 100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Ireland Image Brides Magazine, and Elle Japan.
I am so happy I chose Janet to do hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids and mothers. Everything turned out perfectly!
I'm someone who doesn't wear a lot of makeup. So I really wanted to keep my makeup natural for my big day. During my make up trial session, Janet asked me questions about colors I usually wear and how much makeup I usually put on. It was reassuring to know that she was going to keep things natural and I would actually look like myself :) I also did my makeup trial the morning before my engagement shoot. So our photos turned out great!
For the wedding we had 9 people getting their hair and makeup done (including me). I thought it was going to be crazy, but everything ran very smoothly. Janet's handy dandy timeline definitely kept us on track :)
Diane, Janet's assistant did such a great job as well. All the girls LOVED their makeup and hair. I let the girls choose how they wanted their hair, so they just shared their ideas with Janet and Diane and like magic it all came together :)
I was worried about how my hair and makeup wouldn't last the whole day. But when I look at my photos at the end of the night my hair and makeup look like I just had it done! Crazy!
Thank you Janet and Diane for your amazing work! I couldn't have asked for more :)
Janet and Paige did my makeup and hair for my bridesmaid's and I on my wedding day.
They did such an incredible job every girl was so happy with their results.
Janet also squeezed in my mom and little cousin last minute and made sure everyone was done on time when they needed to be. Janet kept me calm and collected during the whole process and I never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day. I highly recommend them for any event.
Aw, I love Janet!!!
From the start, it was easy communicating with her via email as she was prompt and flexible in scheduling. (I was lucky enough to be able to book my bridal trial as the same day as my engagement shoot!)
At the bridal trial, I wasn't in front of the mirror as she was applying makeup, but I loved the look when she revealed it! I don't usually wear much makeup, but I felt the look she created enhanced my features and didn't transform me into someone else my fiancé didn't recognize. It wasn't too cakey or heavy, but was enough to look great in photos and last the entire day.
Janet has a great personality and I felt really comfortable with her. I thought her calm, focused energy while getting ready would be great to be around on my wedding day. So, of course I booked her and you should too!
Janet was so great, from the very first time we met and I was so indecisive in terms of what hair style I wanted.
She was patient and a true stylist by providing a POV and multiple variations to help me imagine how my hair would look. She knows the business to well, she could immediately see what would work with my dress and face shape.
Leading up to the process I loved her so much she started cutting and coloring my hair leading up to the day so I had full confidence that she knew my hair in and out.
On the day of, she was so calm. As 9 women are frantic to get their hair done, running around, timing is tight – Janet kept me calm by providing me with a low stress area to get away from the mess. She also was such a perfectionist and provided each girl with exactly what they wanted. From a classic updo for some, beachy waves for others and the best was a rocker braid… she was so versatile and able to execute it all flawlessly and on time.
I would work with her again, and someone who I hope to keep in contact with in future… she is such a great person, fabulous hair stylist and an even better person to be around on the most crazy day of your life.”
Janet is such a sweetheart and so wonderful to work with!
It was a relief to find a hair and makeup artist that understood my style and aesthetic. I love that she was able to create such a natural effortless look for my wedding day. On the day of the wedding, her calm vibe kept me sane and she made me look amazing! All my bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup as well and were amazed at how affordable her services were for the quality. I'm just sad that I don't have an excuse to have my hair and makeup done by Janet more often.
