Janet St Paul, Owner

Janet’s 18 years of experience have taken her on many great and rewarding adventures. She has been a master stylist — a term that is masked by her down-to-earth, New Orleans-born demeanor — in some of New York’s most respected salons, including Frederic Fekkai and Butterfly Studio, Kérastase’s flagship New York salon.

To have a gift is only enriching if you share it with others.

In Janet’s extensive career, she has worked in different areas of both the media and fashion industries, including print, television, film and couture fashion shows. In fact, she has consistently contributed to New York Fashion Week with such designers as Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, and Diane von Furstenberg. Her career has also been bolstered by a lengthy client list that includes Diane Sawyer, Martha Stewart, Sigourney Weaver and Vanessa Redgrave, among many other celebrities and, in 2006, she was named a "top rising star" by "W" magazine.

Though she loves working with these industries and individuals, Janet’s main passion lies in bringing clients of all backgrounds a hair salon that provides world-class treatment and unmatched expertise in cuts and coloring. To cater to each and every individual, Janet’s work begins with a 3-step personal tailoring assessment which gives every client the best haircut for their face shape and lifestyle. This is always a rewarding process that isn’t just about finding the right haircut — it’s about promoting learning, enrichment, relaxation and, of course, fun.
