January Spotlight Stylist

This month kicks off the Year of the Dragon. According the Chinese culture, the Year of the Dragon person stands out. Which is why, we're kicking off the spotlight stylist series with Janell Edgerton, a stylist at our flagship store in Beaumont.

Janell has been in the hair industry for almost a decade. That's 10 years of changing styles, changing education, and different people. When Janell made her way to On Stage, she knew she had found a home. This year, she hopes to reach her goal of becoming an artistic director.

Don't know Janell? Now you can get to know her too.

How long have you been in the industry? with the company? 
 I've been in the industry for 9 years and at On Stage for 7 years

What are your specialities?   
I guess I would say haircutting. It's fun!

What do you have the most fun doing? 
I really enjoy doing a drastic haircut. It's fun to the reaction when someone wants a change.

Have you taken any special classes?  
We have workshops periodically and that's how we stay educated and motivated.

How would you describe your personal style?  
Moderately edgy 

What made you want to be a hairstylist?  
I come from a family of hairstylists.  I grew up around it and always had and interest in it.

Who is your favorite celebrity stylist and why? 
 I would say Nick Arrojo from "What Not To Wear".  He changes someone's look dramatically. It's exciting!

If you could have anyone else's hair, who would it be? 
I would say probably anyone with long hair passed their shoulders. I've always had short hair and when I try and grow it out, I can never make it to that length. I always cut it off.

Do you have a message that you would like to tell all of your clients?  
Step outside the box! Don't be afraid to try something new!
