First Look Fridays: Celebrity Hairstylist Janine Jarman

Janine Jarman, Shear Genius, hair, hairstylist, interview, beauty interview, First Look FridaysWhen the last season of Shear Genius was on, my mom and I would watch every episode and then immediately call each other to discuss what had just happened. And the stylist who really grabbed our attention? Janine Jarman. The pint-sized firecracker created so many interesting looks on the show and had such a fun and interesting personality to boot -- it was impossible not to love everything she did! Read on to find out her favorite challenge from the show, the pomade that's great for short hairstyles, and so much more.

Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
I grew up in Long Beach and Huntington Beach in California, and went to beauty school at Golden West Community College.

How did you first become interested in beauty, and what led you to become a hairstylist?
When I was 15, I started doing hair in high school for school dances. I teamed up with my best friend Noel, who would do the makeup, and we made our own company called "Noel and Neen." That’s when I knew that hair was my calling! After high school, I completed beauty school and apprenticed under Sexy Hair Concepts’ founder Michael O’Rourke for several years before opening Hairroin Salon in 2005.

I loved watching you on Shear Genius. What was it like being a part of that show, and were there any challenges that stuck out as your favorites?
I think the finale was my favorite challenge. I love runway hair, and I was so pumped that we got to bring back the other contestants to help us.

You have quite an impressive celebrity clientele! What have been some of your favorite looks on the red carpet?
I love when celebs try something out of the norm and are a bit adventurous. It was fun when Danica Patrick had me do a faux bob on her. Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls always let me do great exaggerated hair styles on her. I also love it when celebs rock vintage-inspired hair looks.

What are your top 3 hair tips?
1) Healthy hair is sexy hair! Make sure to trim it every 6 weeks and use deep treatments.

2) Brush your hair every night from root to ends to distribute scalp oil to the ends.

3) Sleep or work out in a damp braid. When dry, release for undone mermaid waves.

Being a hairstylist must be fun, but what do you do in your spare time?
I love cooking, crafting and gardening. I just finished making homemade limoncello with my husband for holiday presents. I love getting and giving homemade goods. It’s more thoughtful.
